Blathering and Whinging

Has anyone ever heard of Walter Sickert? If you have, tell me what you know of him. If you haven't, no worries, and yes, there is a reason I'm asking, but if I told you, that would defeat the point of the question.

I am somewhat distressed that xmas is practically around the corner. I'm sorry, but I think that everyone overseas is getting their stuff late, as I suck a great deal. Certain people's gifts have not arrived here yet, and while I know what I'm getting the rest of you international types, I still need to go and purchase the other things. I might do that today, but damn, I hate having to leave the house. Good lord I'm lazy. -.- I did manage to find my uncle's gift last night, and as he is just about the worst to buy for, I feel somewhat accomplished. But then I remembered that while I know what I'm getting Mom, I have NO idea on Dad, or my brother, or my aunt, or a couple of other friends. My sister sent a list for her and the bro-in-law and niece, and you BET I am not going to be creative this year. She's letting me cheat, so yes, I WILL. You know, it doesn't help that I detest shopping. I really do. I've never liked it. That part got left off my X chromosome or something. -.-

I tried to write on one of the THREE fics I have due this month and got out about 3 sentences. So yes, that's all going very well. -.-

I went to a different grocery store last night, and found that they have an international section!! I was so excited - British and German and Japanese and all sorts of other imported foodstuffs. They had Weetabix. I bought Pocky!! I know what it is now. Good stuff, I have to say.

I would really like to know why it's wrong that I'm picky when it comes to partners. Am I not allowed to be choosy?? I got another email in response to one of my personal ads saying "If you weren't so strict in your requirements, we would be great together." Well, loser, not only are you closer to my father's age than mine, you live nowhere near me, so why the fuck are you writing me this crap?! *deletes email without bothering to respond*

I think I am far too clingy to my friends, and that they do not like me as much as I like them, and they just don't know how to tell me to go get my own damn life and fuck off. So I'm going to try not to message people and to be generally less annoying. Try being the important word there. -.-

Oh my word.

My room is an absolute disaster.

My mother comes home and announces that I need to clean my room and move things around. Why? It seems she has purchased a computer desk for me. You see, since I've come back home I've had my computer in here on an end table, and she said she wants her end table back in the living room where it belongs. Haha. Also, the desk was on sale. I actually do have a computer desk out in the garage, but have never been able to get anyone to move it into the house for me. I think that one shall go into the trash now - it is old and falling apart, as I got it used years ago anyway. I'm so glad I paid to move it across the country, however. -.- In all seriousness I'm glad to be getting a desk, but it was just a bit of a shock. Not to mention I had planned to do other things with my evening. Okay, probably just t00b around online, but isn't that my right? So very shortly I will be turning off my computer and disconnecting all the cables, etc. Gah. Then I'll have to try and sleep in a bed that is covered with junk. Should be fun.

I did go shopping this afternoon, but came home with nothing. -.- Both of the stores I went to did not have the items I was looking for, so I got discouraged and gave up. I really hate shopping. And I also don't get how there are some people that I can come up with 52464236 things I would like to get for them, and others, I can't come up with one. Why is that? What is it about? *hands list and money to Anna and lets her buy it all*

Our freezer seems to have crapped out, and this leaves me without ice. I am nothing when I am iceless. I am downright dehydrated. I hate drinking things that are supposed to be cold when they are just slightly chilled. I WANT MY ICE! The new freezer is coming tomorrow with my desk. One hopes it will start making ice quickly.

I'm going to go take a shower and then do my cards so I can send them tomorrow and feel as though I've accomplished something.
