There are those of us who don't want to play those, ya know?
This rant brought to you by a month of hanging out on InsaneJournal looking for a place to tag with an OC and a long dead fandom.

I've been thinking in this vein for a couple of weeks now and it disturbs me. Yes, my thinking can be a little twisty but I tend to do things like obey the law. Partly, this is because to keep my job I can't be convicted of a criminal offense but it's mostly a fear of failing. Failure to follow the rules leaves me feeling guilty and I have guilt issues aplenty without piling fresh ones on top.
So, other than the odd turn through the growing up phase where I smoked pot, drank too much, sometimes drove while inebriated, and did other things I'm not very proud of, I'm just about as straight an arrow as they come. I don't speed through residential areas or playground zones. I don't text or answer my phone while driving. I always try to just go along and get along. But this new development makes me ramble and froth at the mouth so click the cut at your own peril.
( Which is why all this pisses me off so much.... )
I think I get why criminals are criminals now. They are because they can be, because they've never had to or don't care about the people they hurt or the consequences of their actions. By defending my untraditional family, I will be at risk of becoming a criminal, but you know what, it don't fucking pay to be an honest citizen so why the fuck not.
I am now officially registered with NaNoWriMo. I haven't decided if this is a step to regaining my sanity or the final proof of the complete and total loss of it. If nothing else, it will give me something to do other than putz around on FB. All there is to do now is wait until November 1 and then start typing.
Though I do have one thing to ask myself...
Self, WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING!
I have decided that since I'm not really doing any RP at all since the demise of the RP board that I am going to do NaNoWriMo.
Yes, I have lost my mind.
I miss writing though and this will either kick me in the pants and get me writing again or cure me of the need to write altogether.
We shall see.
The property manager for our building was by on Friday while I was at work and has had a look at the damage (and hopefully smelled the funk - god it reeks in here) to the ceiling. Apparently there will be contact about having this repaired. I won't hold my breath.
I'm on vacation now.
Last night my crown fell out of my face so my smile is fucked up looking as the peg is horrible looking. If nothing else I am finally able to properly clean that side of my teeth.
Things are still covered with dust and crap in here.
I have no internet access at home at the moment because some idiot on a job site in downtown drilled through a carrier wire that handles television and phone connections to my part of town and cut off my access to my server. Until it gets repaired or rerouted, I only have access from work or if I can piggyback on a non secure wireless connection from one of my neighbours.
I'm a people person, as long as they're dead.
