My fail of the day is the Detroit Lions. If you watched the game then you know why.
I failed at making the bookmarks for the funeral. The legal system is failing me at putting the guy behind bars for the crime against my mother. I burned my lunch thus failing at eating. I failed Mom when she was alive. I'm so angry, miserable and I want revenge!
Just don't get hung up on the vengeful feelings. It'll eat you alive. Drop a line if you need to talk; I've dealt with the loss of a parent too.I know. That's why my family kept warning me and keeping an eye on me. I seriously want to get this guy. I want to go after him myself, but pretending to be a superhero and going in violently wont help. Besides, he ran off and laying low somewhere. I have no clues to find him and there's barely any evidence to get him. FAIL!

I meant to post this yesterday, but I was pretty out of it.My boyfriend and I had to put down one of our cats. Even though he was my boyfriend's cat, I really got attached to him, and he was one of the coolest cats I've ever known.
awwww * hugs*. That really sucks. I know that pain all too well.
I visited family in KY a couple of weeks ago as part of a business trip. I'm not kidding when I say that everyone in my family aside from my brother is either sick or dying, and he is now heavily involved in one of those megachurch thingees. He's getting ready to marry a girl who's so churchy she'll say grace before she eats a candy bar. We had two offers to buy our house in KY fall through. My wife is so on the outs with her family that we had to have Thanksgiving by ourselves (again). That all might sound bad, but we're still remarkably happy compared to some times in the past.
My heart weeps.
So in a discussion, the topic of Anime was brought up. I inevitably started on about how much I love Anime, watch/enjoy it, etc. Seconds after this was said, I heard a guy screaming "EW! You watch ANIMATED PORN!?!?!
My heart weeps.Did you force him to watch some?
Li_Akahi, was it your kitten or were you one of the boys?
Was she absolutely covered in it as well? +120 points for related pic.
(I recommendEthan Frome).

Any positive thing I can think of to say regarding everyone's sorrows sounds silly, trite, and hollow to me. However, I've found that, if one refuses to let events get one's self down and somehow finds a way to occupy one's mind, events eventually take a turn for the better. Please forgive me if this sounds hollow, but it's really the best I can offer, aside from specific ways to keep one's mind occupied (I recommend Ethan Frome).
I sincerely hope that all of your troubles are soon resolved and that you all find some path to healing.
Eventually, we'll get another cat to keep our other cat company. Maybe, I'll be like the MacRosses and try to get the forum to help name my future kitten.
I know how it is to have most of your family gone; with my dad and his parents gone, most of that side of the family is alien to us. The only one left is my uncle, and he's got alcoholic hepatitis and is otherwise a total emotional wreck. My mom's side of my family is just my aunt and her husband, and they're very staunch Irish Catholic neo-conservative suburban assholes. I've still got my mom, brother, and sister, though. The family isn't totally gone yet, so we still have holidays together.
My heart weeps.
He then said "so people actually watch that crap?". Followed by "if it isn't complete shit, why aren't other people watching it?". Seriously people, it was a rough day.
Sometimes it just truly amazes me of the intelligence of the people at my work. For a department that relies heavily on the use of computers, fax machines, and printers, you would hope/think/assume that the employees here would/should have an understanding of how to use these machines and its parts.
However, this is the government. This does not seem to happen here as often as one would hope.
So, an older employee went into the copy room and found that the fax machine/printer was low on toner. Because she did not know where the replacement toner was, nor did she even think to ask where it was, decided that taking the old toner cartridge and shaking it would perhaps fix it.
The results are quite amazing:
Since my office is right next to the copy room, I hear an "Oh my god! Oh, shit! Shit! Shit!" out of nowhere. I go up to investigate and find the old lady just covered in toner and seeing toner all over the corner of the room. At first, I wanted to just point and laugh, but since my supervisor's and section chief's offices happen to be across from the copy room, I had to see if she was alright.
So until further notice, the copy/fax/mail room is closed for now until we can get someone to clean it up properly. Of course our department is very reliant on that room as well.
Everytime I pass by the room, I can't help but laugh and give a facepalm to the absurdity of it all.
My cool coworkers are giggling along with me everynow and then just thinking about this ordeal.
