- Watching: Ghost in the Shell SAC: The Laughing Man
Oooopsie...deleted something I didn't mean to...
Bleah...Used one of my t-shirts and my box fan for a makeshift air purifier. Christ this smoke combined with my upper story apartment sucks.
I know its nothing like what CA usually has, but I just wanted to bitch a little because I'm starting to feel sick to my stomach.
The Search for Rally Cap RudySlight update:
It turned out that the old email I found for his breeder/former owner/former trainer is still good, and she got back to me today with the news that she's going to look into what's happened to him and get back to me on Wednesday if she finds out anything! Woot!
Sleepless North of SeattleAnd its not because of the big booms happening right now.
I've stayed up all night a couple times in the last few weeks now, searching for any mention of a Thoroughbred racehorse I like, whether he has been moved to another track or trainer, or has been sent home for a long rest or recuperation from an injury not noted in the chart of his last race, or God Forbid, disposed of at an auction like so many other low-level claimers are.
I can't explain why its THIS horse and not all of the horses in my virtual stable on Twinspires who've been MIA for months, 'cause I don't know why but I am starting to get a bit obsessed. His name is Rally Cap Rudy, and his last race was on April 2nd, 2018 at Turf Paradise in Arizona. Last summer he raced at Emerald Downs (trained by his breeder/owner, even!) but when his trainer went to Hastings after Emerald's season ended, he was immediately claimed (can't blame 'em, he's a consistent runner, and I would if I could!). That owner/t
Looking Up How to Junk My CarThe Honda I got for free from the parents is having increasing transmission trouble and the struts have started to collapse, both issues for which I have 0 money. Plus, despite it being a '99 model, it was actually built in '98 so its 20 years old this year. I do wish I had the money to fix it up, as its been important to me for the last 30+ years to have the freedom to drive for hours and busses don't cut it for that, despite if its a good system or not.
I plan to drive it until it quits, as I pretty much only drive around the city since I stopped long-distance driving after the strokes (tho now its because of the car and not the fatigue factor), and with the city's bus system I won't get stranded if/when it breaks down. But I certainly will be depressed by the lack of freedom and loss of ability to do things like haul stuff around. Yes, I could get, for instance, a new TV delivered here but there's a high risk of package theft in my building.
Guess What Showed Back UpWarning: On the Edge of Raging Bitchness Ahead
So I got a note that day from the person who used to run the garden about free veggie starts that were on offer, so I called and asked if she'd seen where the hose nozzle went. She's the one that told me it had been there when she was sitting in the chair next to the hose on Thursday afternoon, and she had hung it up on the fence along with the broken purple one. Sitting there in the muddy, swampy area next to the hose, on a chair on soaking wet plywood, when there were lots of other chairs in DRY areas to sit, and had hung up my bought nozzle along with one that had a broken lever.
Just mentioning that.
Guess what showed up some time between that phone call and 7 am this morning. Just happened to be attached to the hose, too. Hmmm.
Its now in my apartment for the time being, because I am (probably menopausally) bitchy right now and that is not a good time to decide what I'm going to do - leave it
And Then Some Mofo......stole the spray nozzle I bought for the garden hose just last week. It was there yesterday, and I'm told it was there earlier today...but not this evening. GRRRRRR. I guess it was too damn shiny for someone to resist.
Guess I'll go buy another and keep it with me.
If you're wondering why its so important its because my garden is like 60+ feet away down an incline from the nearest spigot, and while no one has stolen my gallon plastic watering jug I really don't want to haul it back and forth umpteen zillion times to water my whole garden. I use it for targeted watering only, which is what I did tonight, trying to get the nasturtiums and squash to finally sprout.
Good Lord I Feel Fucking Crazy TodayPeriods during menopause are just as bad as during puberty...just less fucking messy. I feel like a fucking crazy person today. And like repeating that.
And with that I segue into the news that my Crazy Period Vixen pattern on Spoonflower got enough Favorites to be included in one of their Daily Trending lists. Right at the end, but its on the list!
HD TroublesLooks like my trusty ol' external drive may be ready to give up the ghost. I did mirror the files on my internal drive, but looks like I may eventually be in the market for another backup drive. Or something.

SECOND GATCHA TRADING CENTERHere we go again folks! It's the same drill as last time. If you're looking to swap or resell your roll(s), comment here!
Event can be found here:
!!! When you trade or resell a gatcha, please comment who you traded/sold them to on the gatcha's stash file !!!
The only things you can change about the design of a gatcha you get are the patterns and/or the saturation of the colors. NOTHING ELSE. As always, you can buy extra items for them in the cham shop like horns or more colors.
EDIT: Please don't bump your trade offer more than 2-3 times. It spams the comment section. Or at least hide your old comment so it doesn't clutter up the comments! I might go through and hide deals that have already been finalized.
