Not so much a rant as a #firstworldproblems grumble.

I really want to get some nice photos taken of my costumes, but my home isn't suitable, my costumes aren't really designed to drive in, and I don't know any cool locations locally that have changing facilities

People are ridiculous, and those who have their private pity party when others are affected just as much are even more ridiculous. It is totally possible that other people can be hurting just as much if not more, so it's not a good idea to try and one-them-up every time they say something.

Yeah, just... a lot of stuff is going on at home caused by other people and I'm totally powerless and unattached to any of it, but I keep being thrust into the middle by them. Any time you try to get something out of your system somebody has to say something about how it's so much worse for them. It's not a bloody competition. I hate being used as an accessory to a lie without even knowing it as well!

I'm grinding my teeth here listening to the news.

Are there any news stories at the moment that aren't about people in power murdering or abusing the weak, selling off our rights, awarding themselves more stuff at the expense of those with less, and just being horrible pantomime-style villains?

Because it's really getting me down, and I can't see a solution. Protest and petition seems to have no effect. And I don't think riot and revolution will work

I'm just getting antsy as I'm waiting for Amazon to dispatch my Tales of Xillia 2 Collectors edition. It's out Friday and they haven't done it yet.

I'm sorry to hear that. I lost my grandfather in 2006 and every now and again I'll just suddenly miss him dreadfully. I hope you and your family can be support for each other during this time

I lost my granddad recently and well I guess i'm entirely used to it myself. it was a big shock to the entire family.
can I just say that this is extremely difficult for me to put into words.

It was the first time my mum had actually said he was dying. He's been really really sick for the past year (cancer, strokes, heart attacks - serious beans) but it didn't really occur to me or sink in that he was dying until mum said it.

Its... not easy to talk about, but thanks

Feel really frustrated with everything right now. Work and finances are a little messed up right now. Really in that frame of mind right now where I can't properly concentrate.

Same here and on top of that I have been dismissed a few weeks ago despite being able to do my job fine. Cant relax, cant feel I can buy nice things, just pure stress. Only thing I can half relax to is sewing, and even that doesnt last long until I start to panic.

Everyone is like 'just enjoy having some time off until I get a reply from somewhere' but boredom and uncertainty is just making things worse. I need to get my life back on track RIGHT AWAY!

Admittedly a bit of a petty one here, but I'm just frustrated and confused.

I want to change the graphics card in my PC as I think it's dying. However I, think I might have to change the motherboard and processor as well. The Pc is 4 years old now and wasn't exactly a beast when it was new.

I'm just worried about the compatibility of the parts, the cost, and the fact I don't really know how to put it all together. It feels like it's become alot more complicated than I first thought...

If I can share one critical thing about being in a house where there is children and they're not yours, it's this:
You will sometimes walk out of a room having cleaned it and you will expect to come back to it and be in the exact same state as you left it, minus a few toys. But your expectations are wrong. You know that scene in Turner and Hooch? Let me refresh you for one moment
THIS is the reality. and I can handle kids being kids, but it's the parents that dont pick up after them that get me. Every time I've walked from the dining room where Ive been sewing for the last two weeks to the kitchen, the floor has made a crunching sound. Do you know what that is? it's the sound of rice crispies being dropped every morning onto the cream carpet, that used to be cream but now has discolourations everywhere simply because someone refuses to feed the child and the wipe clean floor of the KITCHEN!!!!

Sometimes, when no one is home, I just clean the whole house just to see it nice for a few hours before it returns in full circle to the previous state.

Disclaimer: I wouldn't go armed with a knife with my niece either, she's lovely and I wouldnt swap her for anything, but the fact her mum can't seem to pick up after here is just...*facepalm*

I got caught up in the comic con madness this saturday just past and spent £20 on a pair of Ash Ketchum hats for me and my little brother.

Now I gotta do an Ash cosplay, great.

When you're asked (i.e accused) if you've seen someones Max Factor foundation 'the most expensive one I have'
Bitch, I have Urban Decay, I have no need for Max Factor.

That and people who refuse to understand what is actually private property.

Not so much ranting as just... blaaaaaah.

With my ever-present inability to accommodate time mostly being at fault (with not seeing design flaws until it's waaaay too late being a close second), I had to make the decision to have Dust attend the May MCM tomorrow unarmed and leave what would have been an awesome Ahrah Blade, complete with LEDs, at home.

Either I would have been up all night trying to get it finished and the hilt would have snapped under the strain on Saturday, I would have ruined the whole thing trying to get it done in time or I could simply leave it as is and come back to it at a later date.

With it being the only option not carrying a risk of sword destruction, I went with option 3.

Blaaaah over. You may go about your day.

A minor thing, but the Free! Iwatobi Swim Club anime/manga really annoys me. Nothing to do with the series itself, but it leads to threads, posts and adverts like:

Free! Doujinshi
Free! Cosplay costumes
Free! Nendoroids

And my cheapskate subconscious keeps getting excited and then disappointed when I click and realise my mistake.

Shit like this always is always a bad thing.

They've been approaching single nerdy guys via Facebook PMs. I'm not sure what criteria they've been using though. Only a few of my friends were contacted.

I've been on here a bit too much lately. However, I was one of the poor souls that ordered Splatoon SE from Game. I can't get it now because their entire stock was stolen.

I want to go Liam Neeson on the thieves!

I'm soooo mad.

We have this stupid rota around the house for jobs, and I do my tasks assigned to the day. I dont mess about unlike others and skip days like others do - and others get away with it. The main issue is the dishwasher.
I do it for three days, wed-fri because my brother is unable to do it on those days and we decided that he would take sun-tues and my other half does it on the Saturday to balance things out.

On my day this week, I was so on top of it that it was being half filled, and all people had to do was put their crap in from tea into the dishwasher, and I would turn it on afterwards. I even told them it was half empty.
They didnt do this on any of the days. So my mum goes and switches it on on the saturday, and richard turns it on again when he finds that the stuff inside still looks grubby. She corners ME about it when I didnt even know this happened and saying he's been all funny, but the reality of it is that he's been great all day, no problems. I'm only just being made aware of that now and she shouldn't have done anything at all - it was his day.

So fast forward to today, I nip out to buy fabrics and leave the camera out because she wants me to do this stupid task of taking a photo of the garden every damn day from the same spot at the same time because I got a camera for christmas (good luck taking it to cons then, I thought) and I get back at 4 an hour later, has she done the damn thing? No. She's sat on her butt and forgotten about it while watching a film AND she lost a few days during her half term time when I was away. I hadn't lost any until then.

Anyway, I'm taking a snooze and I'm called on to do it. I wonder why the heck I am because I've done it, and she tries to say that I hadnt! That 'people are playing games with the rota and its not working' If ANYBODY is doing it to the best of their ability, its me. Other people skip their days to take the bins out, other people dont hoover the kitchen and living room when she's busy freaking out about ants we have when food gets left on the floor - fuck off. Seriously. Fuck off.

I'm really starting to get annoyed with the way a friend is on Facebook. I know it's stupid. In person, he's cool guy, but on FB he posts, likes, and shares such ridiculous BS. He basically comes off as the worse kind of contrarian. Conspiracy crap, a campaign to legalise guns in this country, 'men's rights'... The list of BS goes on. He's even going on about stuff in the US that he has no real knowledge or experience of.

In the vast majority of these things, it clear he doesn't understand what he's talking about. Today, I've seen shit about not being nice to police because they are tools of oppression. Really dude? You know less about oppression than I do about astrophysics. I think what makes this worse is that in some way he wants to be a victim.

Sorry about this rant. It has been building for a long time.
