Yeah, you're right, and I do feel the same. I just feel protective. Strange Journey will take the pain away. :)

SMTfan!

You're right to support him like that.

Heh. Was I? If I had just talked some sense into him, he wouldn't have been hurt this way. I seriously think the world is trying to test my limits, hah. I don't want to complain, I hate complaining, but life wasn't always so hard.

I'm probably the angriest I've ever been in my entire life.

I'm just gonna keep it to the basics. Very sick boyfriend decides that he must have a job, even though he really shouldn't. I see how important it is to him, so I support him. I am in bed with a bad arthritis flare up, he gets a call from the job place asking him for an interview. He hadn't had any success until then, so he came in and was probably the happiest I've seen him in a while. He attends interview the next morning, seeing him in a suit made me very emotional, as he looked so smart and handsome and not sick, I kiss him goodbye. He comes home in the afternoon, very pleased with himself. The interviewer liked him a lot, and they went out to starbucks afterwards. He was invited back for the second interview.

I've been so sore and tired, I didn't think to ask questions. This morning, we repeat it, dressed in his suit he goes for the second interview. He comes home in the afternoon, another good interview. They said they would call him if he got the job today. I assumed he didn't hear them right, as I thought that was far too quick. Though, to my surprise, they call and tell him he got the job and to come in for a training day on Friday. He comes in, hugs me, I tell him how happy I am for him and that I knew he could do it. He calls him mum, she is happy for him too.

I google the company's name, while he calls. I was suspicious at the speed at which this went through, and a it took barely a second for me to see that they were not legitimate. They were just conmen, making people go door to door, selling crap. The pay was just commission based,a pyramid scheme,  and the hours were about 12 a day. There were forums talking about how they lure you in, distracting you and not telling you the details of the job, or even the pay, without you realising it. I had to tell my boyfriend, the thing that he was so happy about, was just an elaborate way for some evil, evil cunts to make money off him for far less than the minimum wage.

He is not a stupid man. He would never have fallen for this under normal circumstances...and neither would I. He just wanted it so bad, he needed it, he put all his hope into this interview, he spent money we didn't have to get the train into the city, and we cancelled his doctors appointment to accommodate them. They took advantage of my sick boyfriend, and I feel like killing one of them.

So, that was my day.

Tomara, were all cartoons from Nederland as arty as those ones? :P Awesome songs though.

Also, am I alone in thinking that 0:31-0:37 of this video would make a great "Haters Gonna Hate" gif?

this all day.

Wanna know what cartoon I loved as a child? COUNT DUCKULA!

Quote from: (Tunnels)
I see how it is. Does this mean we have to fight?!

Also, seeing my Username written out makes me realize how pretentious is is. :/ I blame Arcade Fire.


Yes, we must do battle. A battle of wits!
I blame Arcade Fire for all things pretentious anyway.

Starmongooses 20th birthday:



2916  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: October 04, 2011, 10:41:51 PM
1. Glee sucks and can go stab itself to death with an elf's bifurcated whale dick. That is all.

Well said.

2. Starmongoose, don't you have a birthday this Saturday or something.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Though, it is Sunday, not Saturday. It's my 20th. ;_;

How come you remembered this but I don't?
2917  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: October 04, 2011, 09:43:06 PM
Before anyone goes any further, please explain to me what I just watched (The Flying Nun). I had heard the name being kicked around before, but I didn't realise it was...that.

@Grim: You are correct, The Goonies was released six years before I was born. :P

Labyrinth = Goose renting out the movie every week from the video store when he was six, wondering why David Bowie's tight pants were so enthralling to him.

And YES, I adore the Dark Crystal. Or as the Skesis would say. "Hrmmmmm?"

@Annubis: Thank you for bringing some culture to the place, here, have some Pierre. That's a French name. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70U47cNi7sA

Oh, I know I am not the sole gay guy here, by FAR. It's just starting to feel crowded. -.- Get back in the closet (Tunnels).

Since Dice brought up nostalgic TV shows, I wanna share the opening credits to a Brtish comedy from the 90's that I watched faithfully since as long as I can remember until it was cancelled.

The opening theme song is probably the most depressing thing I have ever, ever heard.

YOU GUYS READY TO LAUGH?

Side Note: Didn't Cyndi Lauper have a song in the Goonies?
2919  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: October 04, 2011, 09:14:30 PM
I didn't like the Goonies. :( IM SO SORRY.

This is just one of those movies that makes everyone look at me like I'm defective. I can objectively say it's good, but it  never appealed to me emotionally.

WHY IS RPGFAN SO GAY?


Anyway, yeah, those are pretty weird movies for a kid to watch, but I had strange tastes as a kid too, and so did my little sister come to think of it. I blame this on the fact my parents enjoyed a lot of weird arthouse movies and let us watch anything we wanted.


Star's Nostalgic Corner:

Eraserhead
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Dune
Dancer in the Dark

but I also loved a lot of movies that were made for kids, but yeah, kinda shouldn't have been like:

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Neverending Story
I also watched Hook a lot
Return to Oz
Time Bandits
Labyrinth

Joy. Looks like Glee is back. Now I get to watch my friend spam my twitter feed with crap about it every week.

Totally altered my stereotype there, seeing that you dislike glee.

I'm sorry. ;_;, what can I do to make things go back to the way things were? Don't ask me to go shopping with you though, because shopping is boring, unless it is for me.

Just watched the finale of Warehouse 13, it was a particularly good series this year. Surprisingly graphic compared to the previous two.

In my cutlery drawer, 4 forks, 19 knifes, 8 spoons, 3 teaspoons.

EDIT: Yes, I counted them.
