Yesterday, I decided to be moderately productive. I hung two pieces of fanart on the hallway wall. With four of us living in this space, it’s important to make sure that everyone has an enjoyable home, so the fanart I’ve been choosing all has to do with games. Nilla has her Portal “Cave Johnson” pic, acquired form ThinkGeek, but I’ve been slowly collecting others. I’ve got several for Mass Effect (I have them in one of t hose K-12 picture frames, which actually looks really cool), as well as individual pics for The Lutece twins from BioShock Infinate, Varic from Dragon Age, and Sephiroth. I’ve got one to put up of the Albion Ale girl from Fables, but it’s in a large frame and I need help with the two hooks.
I also did five loads of laundry, folded them and put them in their place. And I made a pork roast with potatoes, carrots, and celery. Busy!
Friday, I was pissed off at some of the people I work with, which is unsurprising. It’s getting to that end stage where I just need to go. Unfortunately, I need health insurance wherever I go next, which means I’m a direct-to-hire and that means it’s harder to find admin work since so many people want to go with temps, so they don’t have to worry about benefits.
In family news, my Dad hasn’t paid Mom her alimony check this month. He only gave her 200 last month, when he should be paying 600. And he didn’t give her anything the month before that, either. In fact, since July, he’s only paid her a total of 500. Nickel has finally announced that she’s pregnant, and me and Mom both think it’s going to be a girl (or, I added, a really effeminate boy, in which case he’s going to be super happy he has an Aunt living in SF). No real word on Dime, tho. She’s remaining quiet in GA. Aaaand, my Crazy Aunt’s family is desperate to be the poster children for Jerry Springer. My male cousin’s gotten custody of his oldest boy; however, it’s only because the kid is almost 19 and is free to move wherever he wants to. My female cousin has gotten out of jail, my Crazy Uncle paid for it, and is forced to live with her father, which is great because he’s a junkie to the Nth degree. I say this because he’s spent three days last week in the ER because he started hallucinating after drinking and taking prescription drugs. She was by his side the entire time he was there, taking care of him, and then he gets out and immediately asks her, “Why haven’t you gotten a job yet?” I’m like, dude, that bitch hasn’t had a job her entire life! Also, her middle child had to be Baker-Act’ed because he was high off of booze and illicit drugs, standing in the middle of the street asking people to run him over so he could die (because his girlfriend dumped him). This is also the kid with the anxiety problems so bad he can’t leave his county! He has panic attacks if he leaves his small town of Milton. I just don’t even know at this point. The youngest of my girl-cousin’s three kids got her ankle monitor off, but I don’t know for how long - she has her own issues.
Now, I decide whether or not to make hair fobs or… just read more fic. Temptation is something I just can’t deny.
