I had DNS-flavoured nightmares. There was someone trying to do something with their DNS, I was trying to tell them that they couldn't, and no one was listening.

There are opinions that I know I don't get to express in public without causing trouble, so I'm going to refrain from treating the friendslist to any steaming rants. But I'm upset, and it upsets me more that I don't feel safe expressing exactly what I'm upset about and why in public. It's the idealist in me getting angry and disillusioned with reality, and my realist knowing that if I let my idealist out to rant in public, other well-meaning realists will come along and tell my idealist exactly where we are bad and wrong, and probably do it cruelly. That's something I'd expect from strangers, and even my idealist recognizes that on the internet, you'll get crap from strangers. But strangely enough, I've rarely had problems with strangers on this topic. It's people who care about me who get cruel when my idealist gets mad that reality isn't ideal. So fuck that; I'm not going to start with it. (That's my realist getting angry.)

  • 05:21 Tonight I named the school at which Mary teaches. I was put on the spot, and frantically declared "Wayside!" :D *highfive Andrea* #
  • 07:27 @afuna drat that pesky long hair! (I have reasonably long hair, and I shed. This does not make win.) #
  • 07:37 Answering old comments is one of the items on my to-do list. Really. And since old comments are in themselves sometimes to-do items... heh. #
  • 07:39 That apricot cordial still has me drunker than a drunk thing, and I've had only half the tiny cordial glass, and mostly not within the hour. #
  • 07:39 @afuna what kind of advantages? Like getting it played with by friends? That is a good one. Also awesome hairstyles. #
  • 07:40 @idonotlikepeas It's worse if it's a shared keyboard. #
  • 08:13 Have updated azurelunatic.livejournal.com/5880662.html with video. #
  • 09:01 LJ-commenting stuff is actually a reasonable to-do for me. I leave the notif in gmail until I either do it or put it in hiveminder. #
  • 09:04 @afuna Hiveminder lets me put tasks on repeat. Which is a good thing for ones like vacuuming. Better than other things that stack up tasks. #
  • 09:15 Dear stupid spammer, don't use someone else's physical address as your opt-out address. I KNOW WHERE I WORK. No love, bitch reporting you. #
  • 10:38 @coffeechica will probably be awake in 6-8 hours here #
  • 10:42 This poem is pulling teeth. Been working on it for days. Still don't have much. Still don't even have one consistent line. Bedtime though. #
  • 18:18 Humans are stupid. #
  • 18:21 @coffeechica Am awake. (did not know I could have nightmares about DNS, but there you go.) #
  • 19:40 @coffeechica Ack, packing! I used to make lists upon lists upon lists for packing, weeks ahead of time. Now, no such thing. #
  • 19:52 @museumfreak It totally does! I put in household task set to repeat however often, adjust as needed, won't stack up unless I tell it to. #
