I hate it when books are unlisted. Most of the time I can get around it, but if they are older than 50 it makes it difficult. Also, non-fiction isn’t that popular either, so that can be difficult too.
I requested these at the library:
- The World in Stamps by Laurent Lemerle
- The Postal Service Guide to U.S Stamps
- Self-therapy for the stutterer by Malcolm Fraser
- Facing Fears by Ada Kahn
- Living Fully with Shyness and Social Anxiety by Erika Bukkfalvi Hilliard
I was trying to find some information on postal services, not stamps; but it’s a start. The rest I figured would give me some tips on functioning like a normal person; whatever that is.
I also wanted some historical non-fiction books, but I’ll buy those from a hopefully inexpensive used bookstore later.
Last night my mom configured a TV tuner and was successful. One show in particular, Criminal Minds episode: “The Internet is Forever” convinced us to delete our Facebook accounts. But before I did that, I made sure to download everything because I love documenting anything and everything. Today I officially deleted my account because the downloading took all night.
Bye bye Facebook; I’m sure you’ll have the same fate as Myspace sooner or later.
I recently purchased two jawbreaker lollipops during an errand to a corner store. They were $2 and something each, and at the time I thought was a great idea until the next morning. I got to the fourth layer that night and was exhausted from licking it so many times. The next morning I immediately regretted it. My mouth was so sore I couldn’t eat without pain. The most painful was my tongue. The wrapper said it should take the same amount of time to finish it as it did making it; 30 days. They weren’t lying. My tongue still hurts, but not as bad as yesterday.
Google continues to frustrate me. It seems the only way to contact them is if I march over to their headquarters in California or whatever. That’s not going to happen any time soon, so I’ll just keep ranting about their various issues.
There is such a thing as “too many changes/upgrades within a small amount of time”. That’s how I would describe Google. They need to slow down with the upgrades, and fix the problems of their original services. Also, a customer service section would be EXTREMELY helpful instead of a damn forum.
Borders is officially going out of business which causes misery on my part. I prefer Borders to Barnes & Noble. Barnes & Noble has never heard of the word SALE or DISCOUNT. Don’t expect to walk out with more than one item if you walk in with only $20. I’d rather pay Flickr $25 a year instead of Barnes & Noble for membership benefits. Ugh. At least I still have some used bookstores around. If they go anywhere, I will be sad, then angry, then sad and so on.
Also, Hulu is making it so that you almost have to pay for a membership in order to watch anything. I don’t care that it’s $7.99 a month or whatever, it’s not fair, and I’m not paying! Damn them.
