The haps is my iMac at work died.  So many bookmarks.... so many podcasts... so many custom wallpapers... so many personally crafted keyboard shortcuts.... so many saved passwords....

Turning 35 tomorrow. According to some, that age would consider me out of the "young adult" phase in my life. It's weird, I feel like I'm in limbo, I can relate to my younger peers and also relate to older people depending on the situation/setting.

In other haps, I'm meeting a Craigslist person this week to see if I would be a good potential roommate situation with a private room and bathroom to myself. I've always lived with various family members so this should be an interesting venture. Wish me luck! haha.

Forgive my totally random non-bleach interjections, just thinking a lot about anime recently for some reason... yeah also really enjoyed Evangelion even with the weird ending, never held that against them, Kaworu is my fave character... just sort of random but, hm.

Do people walk into grocery stores and ask their grocer to find them a fruit from 35 years ago that they couldn't identify by smell or taste or sight or touch?? And then when he/she fails to magically reproduce their random and probably not real memory food be all "fuck you grocery man, I'll get all of my food from the internet from now on!"

No, but they are equally as stupid and rude. Six years in retail has me absolutely burnt out on dealing with people.

Just yesterday I had a woman come in looking for an item that was on sale. She said she looked around and couldn't find it so wanted a raincheck. I told her I thought I remembered seeing it, so let me look around before writing a raincheck. I looked around the store for about five minutes, before finding a stack of two and brought them both up to her. I asked her if she wanted just one, or both.

Her response? "Both, please. And maybe you can write me a rain check for two more."
No gratitude, no sincerity. Just a wretched display of greed and entitlement.

Hell, a couple weeks ago I gave a customer the finger behind his back in front of other customers because he threw his money at me because he had to wait in line for THREE. WHOLE. MINUTES! He literally spent every second from the moment he got in line bitching about how long the one woman in front of him was taking.

At least they only expect mind-reading. I've met people who want me to time-travel... How am I supposed to review a complete anime series when only half the episodes have been broadcast thusfar?!

In other news: I've finally picked my outfits for this weekend. They all meet the three C-requirements: comfortable, cute and creep-proof. I'm going to be just fine while I secretly laugh at cosplayers that made poor choices. (Seriously, though, I do hope other people are sensible about the weather as well. Abunai attracts, fittingly enough, enough small scale disasters as is. They don't need people fainting left and right.)

Regular interaction at work

Patron: I'm looking for this book I read when I was 11.  I think it was about ghosts.  It took place in either England or south Detroit. I'm pretty sure the ghosts were evil?  I don't remember the title or the author or what the cover looked like or the year it was published or anything about the story other than what I just told you.

Me: You're probably going to have to give me more information if you want anything other than a giant list of 700 guesses.

Patron: Why are libraries so useless/why are you so terrible at your job?

I've had so many extreme experiences like that for no real reason, so that is to say... yes... people do randomly walk into grocery stores and ask their grocer to find them a fruit from 30 years ago that they couldn't identity by smell or taste or sight or touch.

And be hostile towards you to when you fail... I think the idea is that no matter what you do you are doing it wrong, or something like that.

I must say, Chicago O'Hare is one of the nicest airports I've ever been through.  The toilets with the electronic seat cover dispensers are sweet.  I'd happily fly through Chicago again.  (I was in Hawaii for 5 days and am waiting for my flight back to Philly.)

Kubo and his love for writing himself into A corner with God mode sue villains. Bleach was fine until he went full on ham with Aizen, and then had to resort to asspull after after asspull to finally take him down. Series should have mercifully ended after Aizen's defeat.

I guess Chad's problem is that all he could ever do is punch stuff (and launch Rukia like a rocket). It's difficult to build a good fight around that without giving him constant power-ups. ... And even that wouldn't have been great, as the constant power-up thing is what Ichigo does and him hoarding powers got boring pretty fast. (That's why I like Uryu, his fights are more varied. He's not allergic to thinking and coming up with plans to take down his opponents. Okay, Kubo rarely lets him actually win, but still...)
