For those keeping score at home. My father had one quarter of community college before dropping out, I think my uncle Russ who the family never spoke to might have been a lawyer before destroying his life with alchoho. I had my own room for most of my childhood and I owned more than 50 books. Other than these few things everything else is a big no.

I'm sure you were all dying to know...

So I thought I would solicit advise from the collective hive mind on a couple of things so please help me out.

a) Need to rent a car for the weekend. Who do you recommend & how cheap are they?
EDITED TO ADD: I'll be heading down to Olympia Friday-Sunday and driving around the city.

b) Thinking about getting a piercing for my birthday (an industrial) my from what I hear Lucky Devil no longer does piercing and so I have no idea where my piercer would be now (Chuck). Please recommend someone good and local i.e. a place I can get to easily on the bus.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions!!

Does anyone want to buy a sealed "Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time" for the PS3?

Bought it for my son, he already has it & I can't return it. So I thought I'd offer it here before I put it up on e-bay.

Make an offer...

So my phone snapped in half on Tuesday (*^#&$^@($&*) and thus 8 years of phone numbers and other assorted contact information went *poof*. :(

As such this is a request for contact info. You you feel I should have your phone number please post it here (all comments are screened) If you feel like throwing out your mailing address or anything else you think I should know that would be cool too!

Thanks in advance!

Hey I'd like to find out if someone on my friends list would like to take some pictures of my girlfriend and her kids or knows someone who would be willing for a cheap (but fair!) price??

What she's looking for is B&W pictures in a few different poses/settings for 4 people (1 Adult and 3 kids ages 18, 17 & 9). Any help or suggestions would be great.

Thanks ahead of time...

Is there anyone with a truck/van/station wagon that can help me move a table either tomorrow or sometime next week in the evening?

Amongst the much more serious financial problems I have you don't really notice the little things. For example my paid LJ account ended last week. When it first happened I didn't even notice. Then I tried to track an entry for a party and it told me that I had acceded my "maximum tracking", grumbling I dug around to figure out how to delete old tracking. Then a few days later I was typing a comment to another entry and found out that most of my user pics had been frozen including all my favorite and most often used. Even more grumbling followed as I found out I could not choose which 6 user pics I could use and had to remove everything but the 6 I was allowed before I could choose the ones I wanted. Then of course there is the ads which are now everywhere and while annoying are pretty much the same as any other website I frequent. I'm amazed at how much "free" LJ service has changed in the 1-2 years I've had a paid account. I guess I wound up spoiled because even though I assumed that I wasn't really using the paid account to its best ability I was using it more than I thought.

In the end it just drives home the point that I'm broke & things are tight but it's funny how it can be the little things, stuff you wouldn't think twice about when you did have money, that really bring that into focus.

Your rainbow is intensely shaded black, violet, and orange.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate a challenge. Others are amazed at how you don't give up. You may meet people who are afraid of you.

I know how you shouldn't read much into this sort of thing but this was weirdly accurate in odd ways. Not picking out normal things that these sorts of tests do (introvert, quiet etc) but things that are off the beaten track but commented on either fairly frequently or by people who I trust and/or are important to me.

How sad is it that I'm super excited over a simple phone interview? I feel like that neglected puppy who is desperate for any attention what so ever. Yet at the same time I'm already anticipating the crushing disappointment if it doesn't go anywhere. I'm really disgusted with what this economy & specifically the job market has done to my mental state.

This was shocking for some reason I thought he was fairly clean cut and trouble free. I wonder what this means for the Batman film?

Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger has died in NY.

He was found dead in his bed in one of his residences in Soho
by his housekeeper at 3:35 PM ET today. Law enforcement sources
say they believe it was not a crime.

Details are currently very hazy but it is believed he died
of a drug overdose.

The 28-year-old actor has a two year old daughter with former
fiancée Michelle Williams. He was set to play the Joker in the
upcoming Batman film "The Dark Knight."

I'm posting for no other reason than so I can see my new userpic that I just uploaded.

Not only am I geeky I'm vain.

I just bought myself a new TV stand and I'm giving my old one away. It is a (slightly dusty) black particleboard TV stand and you can see the pictures posted below. I thought I'd give my friends the chance to grab it if they were interested before I throw it up on Craigslist. If you are interested you must be able to pick it up yourself (it is light and small 33"W x 20"D x 15.5" H) and people who can pick it up sooner have priority over those who cannot.

...that just will not go away. Sinus headaches are just no damn fun. This time of the year I seem to be more prone to them which leads one to believe there is some sort of pollen allergy issues going on.

It's interesting that until recently I never really thought all that much about allergies especially food allergies. However a friend & her roommate both have a range of food allergies which makes me think that I really should go in and get a complete batch of allergy testing done.

The problem is the same as always finding the time to go to the doctor and finding the engergy/will. Due to my life/financial situation I've never really had a doctor just a sucession of medical practictioners that I've been assigned to randomly as new insurance plans take effect or people leave, transfer, graduate etc. So I'm once again in the situation where I need to find a new doctor, although it would help if my damn insurance card would show up. :(

Also my supply of happy pills is close to running out so I'll need to get my shit together and soon.

But all I want to do right now is either cut off my head or shove a sharpened ice pick directly into my left eye and the base of my skull simultaneously. grrrr

New art...

Body art!

I really want a new tattoo. I've wanted one for quite some time now. The problem is that I'm not really sure what to get. So I thought I'd solicit opinions from my faithful readers.

The two spots I'm currently debating for a tattoo is my left bicep and my back. If I get a back piece I want it to be a full back piece and I'd really like to get some sort of ravens in flight kind of thing but I haven't found anything really inspiring. Also I really want to put something comic book related on my skin but I just don't want a comic book character. I'd prefer something kind of quirky and unique that the average person wouldn't recognize but a fellow comic books geek would think is cool. I'm also not sure where I'd put the tattoo perhaps on my forearm perhaps somewhere on my leg.

While I'm on the subject I'm also thinking about getting more piercings specifically to pierce my other tragus and possibly an industrial in my right ear.

So what kind of tattoos do you think would be a good match for me?

I'm feeling extremely agitated today as well as a weird kind of lonely. I'm feeling the need to communicate with people to be connected in someway but the thought of going out and doing something seems to be a little on the uncomfortable side. I've been refreshing LJ like a madman but there hasn't been too much posted today to really distract me.

I always get freaked out when I feel this way because my body actually vibrates and I've got this weird tingling all over. It feels like a "body high" that you get from certain types of drugs. I just literally want to jump right out of my skin. An aside, I just tried to look up "body high" and I couldn't find any medical references to it but tons of drug references. You'd think that someone would have addressed what causes this. In any event I'll be happy when this week is over since I've also been having trouble going to sleep as well and I need to use the weekend to reset my sleep schedule.

I really want sushi too, it just sounds damn yummy.

I wonder if my feelings today have anything to do with my post on Tuesday? My subconscious does tend to latch onto things and worry at them until some sort of conclusion or epiphany bubbles to the surface. Thinking about wanting to reconnect to people could very well have translated into a withdrawl like state today were I need my people fix. lol

I'm just hoping tomorrow is better.

So a week or two ago I purchased a new bed. My previous bed was a hand-me-down, at least 6-8 years old and I was waking up stiff and not feeling very rested anymore. So after a significant amount of prodding from someone that I should do something about it I did. Along with my new bed I bought a fiberbed to overlay on top of it to make it similar to the pillowtop models now being sold (this was recommended by a number of resources as the best way to go) as well as a new sheet set and a new black velvet bedskirt for my bed.

I also took the opportunity provided to completely rearrange my bedroom which I'm pretty happy with as the room feels noticeably different as well as more open. It was after this rearrangement that I decided that I actually wanted to fully decorate the bedroom to make it more purposeful and fancy. I've always had intense jealousy over other peoples homes who always seem to be much cooler looking than mine. Of course some of that is my own fault as I am a rather geeky individual and it is difficult to make large amounts of Comics, Games, & Toys look "cool" to anyone else other than another uber-geek. It also fall in line with my wanting a more unified looking "home" with real quality furniture that will last many years if not the rest of my life that I've been working slowly towards.

However I do have a small problem.... I suck at decorating. I don't know where to find the cool stuff, what the cool stuff is and what to do with it once I do have it. So I'm looking to wiser people than myself to assist. First on my list is that I want to finish off by bed by buying a really nice looking bedspread/comforter/duvet. I've looked at a few places on line but haven't found a very large selection of Victorian / Gothic style covers. In my head I picture a deep red or purple color with intricate scroll-work or similar pattern. Does anyone have any suggestions as to wear to look for really cool bedding? Also does anyone have any good decorating tips to make a more unified look to my home and that expresses more of a Gothic sensibility rather than a what was available or on sale haphazard style.
