I don't think I'm ever going to understand the weirdofailpagan idea that people can be like...luck-vampires, and steal all the attention and accolades that rightfully belong to someone else.

Uh, no, that's--either someone is taking credit for your work/stealing your ideas, or they're not.

If I have seven notes on some tumblr post, and someone else has three, I didn't "steal" four notes. (In fact four o those notes are probably me replying to said post with the worst puns ever.) I just have seven. I didn't mystically siphon off attention/notes/love/whatever.

It's really quite remarkable how many people have NO EARTHLY CLUE how This Kind Of Shit works. "SHE HAS MORE NOTES THAN MEEEEE" yeah okay that's not energy vampirism at work; that's social media shenanigans. Energy vampirism is a different thing from that.

Hurgh. Sometimes there's nothing otherworldly about a given situation, beyond the general baseline. Sometimes shit's just how it is because of chance.

This rant brought to you by: general wining on twitter etc. from people I don't even know.

why did you have to give me another race of nifty, gender-ambiguous, ancient, snarky, cantankerous arthropod people to squee about.

(though, your writer should've totally had them call the PC 'biped'... XD)

Now I wanna write Anub'arak and some of the Klaxxi having a big philosophical debate. :B

ETA: LORE SPOILARS in DW comments, proceed at own risk.

Dear pharmaceutical company,

BITE ME SO VERY VERY FUCKING HARD FOR DISCONTINUING THE ALL-IN-ONE VITAMIN PILLS I WAS TAKING.

Boom fucking shanka,
-the crabby little woman in the red sweater.

Now I have to fuck about with more damned pills, and before anyone tells me to cry moar, I already am taking more than twenty per day to manage this condition alone. Yes, you fucking heard me. CF is a pain in the ass*. XD

Uuurrhhhgh. I know this is small potatoes compared to some things but it's just so bloody damned annoying.

One of the inhaled meds I use being in somewhat limited supply bugs me, too.

People NEED these things, okay? And there are more and more of us who need them, now, because more and more of us are living longer and longer. That's not going to fucking change, except for the better FOR US. So, yeah, supplier. Step it the fuck up so St. Mike's has what it needs for all of us.

So, yeah, bite my ass, manufacturers. I know this is small shit comparatively but it's also yet another reminder of how arbitrary shit is, about how ambivalent drug companies can be about patients and about the fact that it's going to be a while yet before I am 'normal' and all of me works the way it should ought to.

Bleh.

I'll be okay. I'm just cranky right now XD

*Don't worry about me overmuch for this; I'm in really good health and determined to stay that way, and my stubborn-assedness makes mules look wishy-washy. I'm more than okay. XD

o shit

I haven't bought a swimsuit in years. The spandex on my old ones is no longer spandexing.

I need a new one, so am going shopping for one today.

I AM KIND OF HALF DREADING THIS.

Clothing manufacturers, if you cause me feel like a freak with arbitrary sizing BULLSHIT or something, I AM COMING FOR YOU AND I AM GIVING YOUR KIDS FRAPPUCCINOS AND KAZOOS AND INSTRUCTIONS TO PLAY SAID KAZOOS OUTSIDE YOUR DOORS AT MIDNIGHT FOR A WEEK.

AAAAAAAaaaajhksgfjhksdfhgjkshfk.

I'm okay just yeah. Hooray for internalized societal bullshit! (Bonus mini-snark: I love when people deny that they have any internalized issues. Anyone who DOES, and who claims to be this big fat hairy iconoclast who 'didn't drink the kool-ade, maaaaaaannnn', is inevitably nothin' of the kind and just fucking et up with issues and prejudice. I have issues too but I can ADMIT I have 'em and thus work at 'em. Closing your eyes an going AAAAAAAAAALALALALALALALALA with your fingers in your ears just compounds the problem.)

ETA; SUCCESS!

And shockingly painless too! I am so going back to that store. The people were awesome.
