1142 PM Lalochezia See it's a thing! Don't be offended! I get relief!
So it turns out that Anna, the visitor from Germany that D.S. dropped in our laps is really lovely. Consensus among the housemates can be summed up by what J. said, "She's nice. Can we keep her and dump the other one?"
Ah, East Oakland, where the panhandlers at the gas station not only want to pump your gas, they try to sell you supersized bottles of lotion complete with handy pump, possibly only gently used. I didn't ask for details. And when you decline they still tell you, "You know, you is a bootiful lady? Are you married? Well, see you around here at the Arco station."
This is a quote. Can't make this stuff up!
No. No. No. No. No!
I had decided that this was not going to be a night of uncomfortable, unpleasant bad vibey stuff.
Just parked, and the volume & bass of the Wednesday night streaming "Worst Of Burning Man" noise fest, which takes place in our basement at the back end of the house, is so loud I can hear it across the street with the windows rolled up.
To make things more interesting, my landlady is on the front porch talking to Anna, the house guest. Since I am trying to avoid confrontation, I need to wait until she goes back to the basement before I go in. (And I need to pee)
Who would be the god you pray to for bladder control? Oy!
Adventures in packing! I got some cool inexpensive boxes at IKEA with inserts that will serve as little cubbies to store my altar stuff, like crystals and little bells safely!
But I struck out at Ross. First time I have ever been there when they did not have space bags! They are so expensive everywhere else! I was hoping to squeeze down bulky items like costumes and winter coats!
I would not give a penny to Walmart even if they offered me a private one bedroom apartment in my price range right now. (By the way, the place in El Cerrito fell through and I am desperately looking again) That's how firmly committed to not shopping at Walmart I am!
*shakes head. Rubs ears. Wishes some things could be unseen/unheard.*
Avril Lavigne, what has happened to you? What's gone wrong? I see you are approaching 30. Are you having a crisis of cool? Trying to reclaim your teens? Your "Rock n Roll" video was atrocious enough, but this Hello Kitty video offends the eyes and the ears.
Aside from the overzealous processing that has completely removed anything human from your voice, your Japanese is horrid, the song sounds dreadful, and is that a Skrillex rip off? How you could possibly think it would be cool for a white woman to act like a giggly Japanese girl bouncing around and clapping her hands and.....oh..I'm just not even going to bother any more.
Hopefully, you'll get a grip and figure out how to do something brilliant and musical in the next few years because this shit is going to become increasingly embarrassing!
