Cranky

Miva Synchro still isn’t working. The tech guy has been able to reproduce my error on his machine (and wrote to me last night because he was working on the problem at home) but they still haven’t been able to fix it for me.

I learned last night that Guitar Hero III has the wireless guitar I’ve been holding out for but that they added a stupid “beat the guitar legend to advance” step. Goddamn it, I SUCK at that kind of thing and I have NO desire to do it. What were they thinking? I just want to sit around and play songs with my little girl which was precisely what was fun about the previous version. Bah.

I’ve researched the hell out of new washing machines and I want to just GET one already.

Last night I had to deal with a sulky, whiny Kate because a few weeks ago I finally put the cactus pinata that she’d received for her birthday A YEAR AGO out in the recycling and she finally realized that it was gone. There was no candy in it (she dumped all the candy out long ago) but it had never been broken, either. This resulted in at least half an hour of her clutching the remaining donkey pinata and whimpering whenever I came within earshot. This does not bode well for my plan to clean the CRAP out of this house… and it makes me angry. I do not intend to deal with that crap over every piece of junk we get rid of. Argh.

Because Kate is now playing soccer at school on Fridays, I have to pick her up and start the drive to her dad’s later (5:00 instead of 3:15) and in the heart of rush hour. Tonight is the first time I’ll be making the trip and I’m not sure what to expect but I’m really not looking forward to it. Making the drive in heavy traffic really sucks.

Today would be a good day for me to crawl into bed and ignore the world. Too bad I can’t do that.

  • From what I understand, the boss battles in Guitar Hero III aren’t showstoppers – if you fail three times, you’re given the option to move to the next stage.

    I don’t know this for certain, mind you. I lost once to Tom Morello and then smoked him; I haven’t done any other bosses yet.

    As for getting rid of crap, I hear you. We’ve been starting to crack down on the accumulation of shit (okay, *I* have), and the whining that ensues each time makes me want to bust out the Stranglin’ Hands. Good luck with it.

  • One suggstion on the cleaning: Get rid of as much stuff as possible all at once. Chances are that 99% of the stuff you pitch won’t be noticed, and the net trauma will be much lower. Do it slow and you get drama every step!

  • A buddy of mine was playing GH3 and when Tom Morello came on the screen as a crummy level boss, I laughed long, hollowly, and hard in the name of capitalism.
