Tezuka loves me. I swear.
気持: scatterbrained

My car and its oil are clean, and I have food. Okay, it's frozen pizza and Chee-tos, but I have food. There are some other things I didn't get around to doing, but I didn't feel like driving all over the countryside today, because I was ill yesterday and didn't feel like pushing my luck.

I'll probably regret that, but that's the way it goes. Tomorrow I'll check my balance (I spent $60 today in oil change and food), and probably order the Christmas gifts for my siblings, and start addressing cards (sign up here if you want one). I've also got to finish my great-aunt's gift, and get some yarn to make my grandmother's. I don't know yet what I'll do for my great-aunt's husband or my grandfather, but I have something for my sister's boyfriend (what I'd really like to give him is a punch in the face, but no, I have an actual gift), and I've already bought things for my parents, so if I can do those things that'll be most of it taken care of.

I might take this stack of doujinshi to work with me and scan the covers so I can sell them on eBay (actually it's probably safer if I write down the titles and look for pictures online...). I also have a Roy Mustang plushie that was accidentally sent to me instead of the person I was buying it for, and she offended me before I got it sent to her, so I'm going to sell it (I thought about letting the cat destroy it, but that fucker was $30).

So that's pretty much what's going on in my life. Well, not everything, but that's all I care to think about at the moment. I'm actually not depressed right now, and if it's all the same to everyone I'd like to keep it that way.

Well it's NOT the same to me, so I'm going to think long and hard about how to drag you into the depths of despair. Because it's fun to be angsty with company.

Get your sister's BF a self-help book that is tailored to one of his more egregious flaws. Insulting people under the guise of being nice is always awesome. :D

See, the problem with that is that I hardly know where to begin. Basically he's just really immature and has no manners. My brother is 15 and spent most of his life in a small private school, and he has better people skills than this 21-year-old who went to public school all his life.

Really my fear is that if I get him anything that could be used as a weapon I'll be tempted to do so.

Plush animals. It attacks his sexuality while simultaneously filling him with consternation. It can't be used as a weapon, (unless you shoved it down his throat and suffocated him with it), and is cute while still being vaguely insulting.

He likes plushies, though. I'm actually mostly convinced he's secretly gay. He shows one of the major signs, anyway--avoidance and ridicule of all things that might even remotely be gay. He once stopped watching an anime (Cardcaptor Sakura) because it looked like one of the main characters might be gay (duhh, CLAMP manga/anime is chock full o'gay).

Heh, maybe I'll give him the Roy Mustang plushie. If there was ever a guy in the closet...

He likes plushies!?!?

He stopped watching Cardcaptor Sakura because one of the characters in the show might be gay. WATCHING CARDCAPTOR SAKURA IN AND OF ITSELF IS GAY.

You know I used to vehemently ridicule anything that might be gay, right? And, I used to love Sailor Moon but defend it's totally un-gay status to anyone who dared to say "Dude, that you love that show's a little gay..."

Fuck getting him a plushie. Get him an issue of Playgirl.

To be fair, he was only watching Cardcaptor Sakura in the first place because my sister loved it. But that show is full of gay, even though that one guy he thought was gonna be gay isn't. One of his favorite shows, though, is another CLAMP gayfest, X/1999. He also watches pro wrestling...

Yeah, this guy's been setting off my gaydar for years, AND he's a fucking retard. I've told my sister that, but she thinks I'm just jealous. Oh well, it's her funeral.

Pro Wrestling and X/1999 are both filed under "So gay, even Joe thinks they're too gay to like."

Yeah... Well, if your sister doesn't listen to you, what can you do, right? I've been warning my brother away from fucked-up-girl-#312 for a long time, but if he doesn't listen to me and get sucked into the fucked up relationship from hell, I can't stop it. *shrug*

Siblings never see the obvious.

And that dude's gay. IF he's not, that's REALLY sad. You know, to be the straight guy equivalent of me. (Totally gay but actually straight, whereas I'm totally straight but actually gay...)

That is all.
