LJ, this is no longer funny


Please stop telling me an edit's been made and then show me a very unedited post.

Please stop randomly changing how much is in my post.

Please stop suddenly making my four-times-edited post completely unedited.

Please give me all my edits back.

Please don't show me a comment has been made only to go ahead and not show it on another view.

Please stop being a right pain in the neck. This has gotten long past funny. If my last post is a garbled mess, it's all your fault. Stop this. NOW.

You know what's really sad? I was just randomly surfing through LJ user info pages, and whenever I saw birthdays, I'd relate them back to U2: "Oh, that's Bono's birthday!" "I have a boot from that date!" "That's the same day as when U2 opened for Thin Lizzy at the first Slane Castle gig!" (that's you, Mike) "Ooo, that's a day before that song on Rattle And Hum!" and so forth ...

So very sad.

Sleeping in doesn't seem to agree with me. I crashed at about 2am, woke up at 9, slept on and off until about 11:30 ... and right now I feel very tired and my head hurts. Seems I just can't sleep in. Maybe I should go to bed early and wake up exceedingly early. That seems to like me better. Or maybe I got too much sleep. I tend to run well on 7 hours, even though I'd love a sleep in.

This year's yearbook = worst yearbook ever. Crappy cover, no contents (!), not all the grade eights appeared in the grade eight photo section (they do this special section of photos of all the grade eights, and yet I couldn't spot some that I know - when I was in grade eight, we all made it and I was there three times!), no grade eight or nine report, terrible photo of me in the debating report (actually, it was OK, just my hair makes me look silly), no page for signatures at the back (instead there was a fricking ad) (though unless you're in grade eight or twelve, no-one really cares for signatures any more, and the twelves sign each other's shirts), no grade 12 profile, no "Can you imagine?" ... what the hell were they thinking? It's terrible. I feel embarrassed to have it.

Why is LJ stuffing me around with edits? Is my post from 12:13am this morning showing an edit at 1:02am or not? Apparently it is when I simply view my journal, but it isn't when I check the e-mail notification of comments. Gah. You dumb thing.

There WAS something good I was going to talk about. Um ...

One thing that feels ... weird, I guess, is that I only have one year of school left. Next year is going to be a year of lasts. Jamie and I were talking about it, and quite frankly, it doesn't feel right. School's not supposed to be nearly finished already! I don't feel like I'm going into grade 12, I really don't. It's weird and strange, and I'll miss the place. Not sure I want to leave. And they say next year is the shortest year of your life ...

Is someone spiking my lemonade or something? I feel like I have a frickin' hangover. Ugh. (And before anyone asks how I know what a hangover feels like when I've never been drunk, I've grown up around people who sometimes have a bit more alcohol than they should so although I've never had one myself, I rather know what it's like)

There's a Christmas tree in my lounge. What the Popmart? Unless I'm gravely mistaken, it's still November! And ... what the hell is the Christmas tree doing up anyway? It goes up twelve days before Christmas, and goes down twelve after. That's the way it's always been, and it's the way it should be. Goes up at just about the time I'm starting to feel Christmasy and think about it. It's not nearly Christmastime yet. So many people are already into Christmas mode ... and I really don't get it because it's still November. Then again, I never really get into Christmas mode until a week before Christmas, if not less.

Though I love the Christmas tree lights. They flicker and are nice.

Burns is such a dumbass. Fade Pat would agree with me on that.

Go away stupid little bugs that are landing on my nice new flat screen.

I think I'll be staying up past 4am. 46664 concert is being webcast and features Bono, hence I must see it.

I'm trying to learn how to burn CDs with my new burner, but I'm a technological moron so I can't quite figure it out. I want to copy bootlegs onto a blank CDR - what format do I copy them onto my computer first? .wav? I'm lost. Maybe I'll post in Interference for some help.

And even though things hardly feel Christmasy, I have figured out what I'll do for everyone for Christmas, which is a massive change from previous years. I love my CD burner and having unlimited downloads.

At last count, I'd taken over 500 screenshots of Slane. Hee.
