Tired of Filth

All in all I am really just sick to death of asshole-housemates.
For the last few years, it seems like a never-ending parade of jerks.

We rented a room in this place simply because the place we had set up to move into fell through at the last minute and we had no choice.
This is a 9' x 12' box' and we never planned on staying here for very long.
We also did not expect the DMV to be quite as incompetent as they have been...which is why we are still here.

I have never met the homeowner, but I do have to wonder what they were thinking when they rented this place to a fool that is on SSI and makes less than $1000 a month, when the rent here is $3000.

It is his two now ex-friends that are trashing this place.
They are some real pieces of work.

As it stands, the kitchen is unusable now because these people just dump their waste onto the floor and in the sink.
The back yard looks like a dump.
The stink from rotting food and dirty diapers is sickening.
I am done cleaning up after these people.
Try to put the trash in a trashbag?
They pour it all out onto the floor.
I am just done.

Everything we have in this house is in our room because these filthy pigs destroy everything they touch.

All we are waiting on is The Man's ID and then we are SO out of this shithole.

Filthy Fucking Housemates

Okay, I finally did it.

My soon to be outmates are swine.

Here is the other blog dedicated to those of us that live with filty assholes like these:

Are You High...You MUST Be to Send Me This Dreck

Apparently my last landlady (read this as abusive wing-nut) doesn't seem to get it that "Utilities Included In The Rent" means exactly that - they are included.

That means you don't get to bug me 5 MONTHS later about the PG&E bill because I really don't give a shit.

Oh, the DECEMBER and JANUARY bills were high?

Gee, maybe you should take that up with your crotchdropping, Little Miss Can-Do-No-Wrong, and her deadbeat boyfriend, and YOURSELF, since the three of you CRANKED your lousy little energy-sucking plug-in heaters 24/7, and had all the TV's in the house on, other than mine, oh...and that was when you brought home that energy-sucking beast of a fridge too.

Has it dawned on you that using the oven as a heater also tends to drive up the old electricity bill?

How about TURNING OFF THE LIGHTS, which you idiots never did?

This is the middle of JULY, incase no one happened to notice, and you are just now figuring out your bills from DECEMBER?!


I bet you think you were oh-so-sly about that little deal you had with the new owners of the house.

The one where you made $2000 and screwed everyone...but couldn't resist running your mouth the the neighbors?


I got your number, toots.

It is a big fat ZERO.

That is exactly what you will be getting from me.

Dear Guinness World Record Book Wankers,

I wouldn't mess with these guys...unless you LIKE looking like a bunch of jackholes.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This post is in response to an email FAIL Blog received from an attorney representing Guinness World Records Limited.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thanks for writing us an email regarding the “Record Breaking Fail”. Unfortunately, douchebaggy cyber-bullying emails will only bring upon you more shame on your house. I am also resisting the urge to write this email in ALL CAPS.

I believe it is the duty of FAIL Blog(TM) to call out organizations when they encourage the public to do such things as “Break the record” for the “Most Individuals Killed In A Terrorist Act”. We firmly believe that our publication of your fail is protected under the concepts of fair use, commentary and non-trademark use. Please RTFM and we welcome you to teh interwebs.

Since we at FAIL Blog(TM) don’t have a legal defense department, we have complied with your request to remove the trademarked term and logo from the original image. We have used the “naughty bits filter” on the image to secure your naughty, naughty, trademark assertions. However, we have posted your email so that our audience can see why we had to remove the name of the failer from the image. I hope that this is the outcome you have expected as now NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW THAT GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS LIMITED HAS FAILED.

The full legal response can be read here:


Gummy Fail, Dirty Mind Win
P.S.: This is what we think of your letter. ^

I don't tend to de-friend people, I just often go into hibernation, but once in a great while someone just needs to but taint-kicked to the curb.

This is one of those times.

Sorry, Iowa CornFlake, but you are not worth my time in any way, shape, or form.

If you are unemployed and all you do is sit on your butt playing video games, you are basically a leech. In this case, you have children that you are not supporting, which makes me want to kick you in the taint TWICE!

Divorced 3 times?

I can see why.

Your kids should rank higher in your life than World of Warcraft, buster.

Your mom is a nice lady - too nice for her own good.

You are my age, and not even TRYING to find work...just mooching off of mom.

Catch up with me in a different lifetime, pal.

I just don't have the inclination to deal with people like you anymore.

The Greatest Honor

For me, being accepted in a Vietnamese family is the greatest honor.

Learning about how to be respectful in an Asian culture is a new concept as it is a very different world than what I was raised in.

I welcome the challenge.

We live in a huge world.

Learning how to live together in harmony matters.

It Never Ends...

We are now entering month 6 of waiting for Mr. Gothric's ID...and it is WAY past critical.
So far the DMV has been paid in full TWICE and today marks the second free re-shoot of his picture so they can continue to not send his ID, and lie about it.

It isn't like you can get an ID from anyone other than the DMV, and you can't cash a check without it, so in the last 6 months the only money we have had to live on is what I make.

Well kids, I am broke.
Like no money for food, broke.

I am pretty much at my wit's end.

I am down to eating half a sandwich a day, if that, and it is taking it's toll on my health.

Sick thing is, he has several thousand dollars in checks but we can't cash any of them because the damn DMV hasn't sent his ID.

When does this end?

This is the first piece of filet work I have done in years.
It reminded me right quick of why I actually prefer crochet over knitting.

I have been printing reams of old patterns from the Antique Pattern Library.
The only real problem I have is the directions.

As with most vintage crochet patterns, the instructions can be iffy at best, and non-existant at worst.
Then there is the difference between English and US terminology.
It makes things interesting to say the least.

What you don't see is 5 minutes later...when Josie is busily pulling the pins out of the blocking board for no other reason than she is a cat, and is being a pain in my ass.

Next up may well be a peacock in filet lace, but it is rather large and I still need to figure out what scale I want to make the thing in.
Hmmm....127 mesh across @ 5 mesh per inch in size 10 thread on a size 7 hook = 25.4 inches wide.
Big sucker!

If I did thing thing out of regular worsted weight yarn it would be monsterous....and take miles of yarn.

Done and Waiting to be Blocked

Hat done
The Poems Hat is done, and waiting to be blocked.
It is slightly larger than I would have liked, but a little hot water should fix that.
If not, I need to find a bigger head to put it on.
Next time I will use size 8s instead of 10s, and may well just use the spiral rib for the whole thing.

It's raining.

Maybe I will do the Tiger Hat next.

Hat in Progress


Here's the hat I am working on.

Let's see how much I can get done today.

Actually knitting!

I am suddenly inspired to knit.

I always have the stuff with me, but haven't been feeling much of a creative urge lately.

Nice to have that feeling back.

I started knitting this hat on straight needles, but it was just driving me batty, so I re-started it on circulars.
Why knit something that is round, flat?
It makes no sense.

I'll probably post a pic or two in a bit.

Yes...I DO lag, Thanks for Noticing

Yeah, I know..."Why don't you write"?

I have been packing, and packing...and packing some more.
Heaven forbid I actually get rid of some of this crap, but I don't part with books and will probably not live long enough to use all the art supplies I have squirreled away over the years....but won't get rid of them either.

THAT is why storage units were invented...for crap-overflow.

Wells Fargo is on my official Shit-List-For-Life since they tried to steal The Boy's money and screwed us out of a place to live.
We actually had to sick the FDIC/Feds on them...and apparently we are not alone.
Boy finally figured out WHY I have two bank accounts at different banks, and neither of them is at Wells. (Wells Fargo can eat a bag of dicks.)

Can't Read a Chart


It is a flipping GAUGE why can I not get this thing to not look like ass?

Here's the first clue - I can't read knitting charts worth diddly.

This will be my 4th attempt at this sucker.

Barbara Walker - I both love and despise you.

Twisted look awesome, but why must you suck like a Hoover to figure out?

It is NO secret that I loathe swatching.
(Although I know I must do it, I don't have to like it.)

Grrrr....knitting is supposed to be RELAXING!

Tower Mart Aliens

Behold the Tower Mart in Lathrop, CA

This is the image you get when you stumble in the front door.

These are the bread aliens.
Kind of brings "loafing" to an art form, doesn't it?

One of the many spaceships, and the silvery thing in the right corner is a space kitty!

I LOVE Roadside Attractions.
This place is worth the 65 mile drive from San Jose.

Blogger, what is your deal?

I had to fight with Blogger to get back into the bugger so I can post.

Blah, blah, blah...cookies, clear cache...whatever.

I am working on a pair of socks at the moment and being peeved at the idiotic way some instructions are written out.

K1, K2tog, YO, K3...The chart says it covers 6 stitches, but the math doesn't work out because it actually covers 7 stitches.

ARGH! are my friend.

Long Lost UFO

Poor mateless half-finger has been what?

3 years since I knit you?

Second Sock Syndrome hit me HARD when I knit you, so there you sit, forlorn in a sandwich bag...dreaming of the day when you can come out and play.

Your salvation is on it's way.

The cuff to your mate is done and now I working on the thumb gusset increases.

Yes, I know you were a needle-eater, but not to worry...I have new, stronger, nearly idiot-proof needles.

Rest easy, oh lonely glovelet...your friend is on the way.

Ticket Bastard...or Scalping, the Legal Way

Ticketmaster says pricey resale tickets protect consumers

Excuse me, Ticketbastard, but are you HIGH?!

"Ticketmaster received complaints after an AC/DC show in Vancouver sold out in minutes, only for tickets to be quickly available for higher prices on TicketsNow. The resale site also charged up to $1,199 for a $44 face-value ticket to a recent Killers concert in Toronto — roughly a 2,500 per cent markup."

Sorry kids, but this is nothing but out-and-out SCALPING, and any moron that gives these clowns a dime DESERVES to get ripped-off.

I HATE Scalpers with a purple passion, always have.

The ONLY thing that was more irritating than a Dead Head on ticket Sunday were the scalpers, but at least they weren't my friggin' co-workers.

I worked for Bass Tickets, which is what Ticket Master was back when Bill Graham was still alive. (Miss you Bill, you were a gruff little shit, but you put on one hell of a show...and actually CARED if people had a good time.)

People wonder why I don't go to shows anymore.

Facts are, they aren't worth it anymore.

Concerts used to fun, and they didn't cost a mortgage payment for a few hours of entertainment.

I don't know about y'all, but I haven't had a raise in two years and the concept of paying more for ONE concert ticket than my car payment, insurance, phone bill, and rent combined just isn't gonna happen.
To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't cough up that much money to see ANYONE play, no matter how much I had in the bank.

Ticket Master owning TicketsNow is sickening to me.

I have one word for both of these greedy entities: BOYCOTT
