Ooooh! A three part post!! On things COMPLETELY unrelated to each other!

Part 1
Piss off, Kia. My Kia Rio has an ANNOYING "feature" where if you lock the doors using the keyless thingy, and then use the key to open the trunk, the car alarm goes off. WTF?? Argh. Because EVERYONE knows that if you someone is using the keys to open the trunk of a locked car, THEY MUST BE A CAR THIEF!! Argh.

Okay, I thought maybe it was an overlooked little thing, BUT NO. THEY TALK ABOUT IT IN THE USER MANUAL! SEE?



JEEZ! In the stages of planning/designing this, I think the conversation went like this:
Engineer 1 - Oops! The alarm goes off when you open the trunk! Crap, I don't wanna have to fix that!
Engineer 2 - Ah, don't sweat it dude. We'll just stick a little blurb in the user's manual and tell everyone it's a "feature".
Engineer 1 - Awesome! Then we can go smoke a bowl! Plus, everyone knows that anyone trying to get into the trunk of a locked car is up to no good anyway. No way that they would be someone with their hands full of things to put into said trunk.
Engineer 2 - Exactly! What was that you said about smoking a bowl? I was going to design a button to open the trunk onto the remote start and fix the front fog lights so they stopped falling off whenever you looked at them funny, but your plan sounds a lot more fun!

There, writing that little thingy amused me and now I'm not as annoyed at being embarrassed by the Mikey Mobile making a racket when I tried to put something in the trunk this afternoon.

Part 2

WTF?? South Dakota is the second "free-est" state?? SOUTH DAKOTA??? Whatever! They must have somehow overlooked the fact that we've tried to OUTLAW abortion like 3 times, and that we've tried to get something passed to outlaw gay marriage? *facepalm*

Part 3
I KNOW that everyone's got this lil Turtle pet thingy, but I wanted to make one :D

micaturtle: (ARGH)
Ok, I wasn't going to post about this, but it's been almost 3 days since it happened, and it still irks me. Grrrr.

Stuff about work )

Oh yeah, I *AM* working on NYCC 2010 entry (I know, I know, I'm really late) I should have it up by next week. :)
micaturtle: (ARGH)
Well I am going in for surgery on this Friday. I am getting Novasure Endometrial Ablation. Basically, they are going to burn the inside of my uterus off so I don't get my period anymore (and hopefully it will help with the accompanying mood swings and overall exhaustion that happens with the bloody time of the month)

What sucks is that DakotaCare(my insurance) only covers 80% until I've met my co-insurance of $500. And that's only AFTER I've met my deductible of $500. Well, I've met it, and then paid $118.02 on top of that for co-insurance. The surgery and hospital stay and such is estimated to cost about $9,000.00. and 20% of that is $1800, CERTAINLY more than the $381.98 I have to pay to get to my co-insurance cap. It still suck though, cause that's almost 2 whole weeks take-home pay for me *pout* Thankfully, my mom has offered to help me pay it. (Or at least loan me the money and let me pay it off in installments). I sure hope I've done everything correctly with the insurance. It will suck MAJOR ass if I made some sort of stupid mistake, and end up having to pay a bunch more. *sigh* $400 is MORE than enough considering I pay like $80 a month for this dumb insurance. :[

If my damn gall-bladder or pancreas is going to be a bitch and need to be removed, it BETTER do it before the end of this year, cause I don't wanna have to pay that $1000 again. You hear that, body? You're on freakin' NOTICE, you have 'til the end of the year to malfunction, after that, you better BEHAVE yourself!

On top of all those bills, I still owe my therapist, Dr. Thompson, around $500. (from the amount the insurance didn't cover because it was the deductible of stupidness) *sigh* I'm going to try to talk to her tonight when Jenn and I go in for our appointment and see if I can set up some sort of payment program. *grumbles* I'm a little grumpy with her because I kept ASKING her for a bill, but never got one 'til 2 months later, when it was a $500 bill :[ grrrrr.

Medical bills are made of Dumb :[
micaturtle: (ARGH)
Okay, it's official. The management at Jenn & my apartment building are fuckwads. I called them today and they told me that they had to replace the carpet, so we are only getting like $20 back of our security deposit (out of a $700 Security Deposit!)

They are so full of shit! I'm going over to the apartment today to knock on the door of the apartment and ask if I can enter and check if they DID replace the carpet (which I *HIGHLY* doubt they did, since we moved out on Saturday July 31st, and they said the new tenants wanted to move in on Sunday, August 1st)

I am SO beyond pissed. Even if they somehow DID replace the carpet, it was only about a 700 sq ft 1 bedroom apartment, so it would cost about $800-$1000 to re-carpet it. This cost should NOT be ours to take on, as there were at least THREE large yellow spots on the carpet when we moved in (ALL of which the lady doing the walkthough with us ASSURED us that we wouldn't need to worry about)

They can piss off. I told them I wanted the itemized explanation of why they kept the moneys from the security deposit ASAP. They told me they would call me back. As soon as I get it, I'm going down to the courthouse to file suit.

ARGH. I am pissed. I kill them. I kill them until they are dead.

EDIT: Okay, I am waiting until tomorrow noon for them to call me back, and if they don't I'm calling and raising holy hell! Grrrr!
micaturtle: (Problem)
EDIT: I posted this a couple days ago and the link broked, so I hide-ed it until I could find some working links. This is IMPORTANT shizzat, so read the rant!

Ok, so if you haven't heard about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) bill, here's the gist: You know how they say on a lot of employment applications "We will not discriminate against someone based on race, color, religion, sex or other protected status." (or something similar to that) Well, one would think that sexual orientation and gender identity would already have BEEN one of those "protected statuses", right? WRONG!!!

You may think "so what? If someone gets fired for being transgender or gay/bi, they can simply sue the company for discrimination.", right? WRONG! Under current law, they CAN'T.

Think about this. You've been trapped in the wrong gender body your whole life, and you FINALLY figured out that's what's wrong and so you begin taking steps to make your life better. And then BAM! You're suddenly unemployed because Judy in the next cubicle doesn't like a man working with her who used to be a woman! And now, unless you're in one of the few states that have state laws about gender identity, (Click here to see if your state is one of them) then you're screwed! Fun, ey?

So what can I do to help, you ask? Email or contact your legislative reps about passing ENDA! "That's too difficult!" "I'll do it later!" You whine. Okay, FINE. CLICK ON THIS LINK AND EMAIL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES! It's very simple! Simply fill out your info and clicky the little email button. If you're feeling ambitious, customize the email about it!! Or even better, personalize it, then print it out and send it via snail mail! Oooh Ooooh! If you're feeling REALLY ambitious, you could do BOTH! ;)

Feel free to repost this {the whole rant or just the link} to you journal or other places

WOOT! LET'S GET THIS DAMN THING PASSED!

(Non-U.S.A.ians, you are excused. However, I expect you to be annoying your local governments if they are of the same mindset as this)

Ok, Jenn wanted me to write this up, so here I go.

((this isn't proofread, so forgive any glaring errors, please))What? Wiccans are rude? )
micaturtle: (ARGH)
FUCK YOU Wells fargo and your overdraft charges! Spending a total of $29.62 over what I have DOES NOT give you fuckers permission to charge me $500 in overdraft charges!!! And HOW MANY TIMES do I have to tell you that Midamerican Energy is NOT ALLOWED to take money out of my account!?! I *KNOW* I've told you AT LEAST twice! ARGH! *smacks the bank around* Asshats! Coming home to an account balance of -$586.16 does NOT a happy Mica make! *grumbles*

Wow. A lot of my friends are participating in a "strike" against LJ on this friday. I, personally, will not be participating. (although I may not post that day, depends on how busy I get).
I guess I'm in the minority here. I feel if LJ wants to eliminate accounts that have no ads, that is their right and a perfectly smart and prudent decision. I just look at it this way: Basic accounts were created back in the days when 34KB dial-up connections were the norm, and thus ads caused a LOT of time lost waiting to load them. Nowdays, most people have high speed internet or at least a 56K dial-up service, so that wait has become nonexistant. Thus, the need for these accounts has been eliminated.
Look at it from an advertiser's viewpoint. You would want as many people to see your ad as possible, right? You may decide not to advertise with LJ because of the fact that they have a "no-ad" option. And while paid accounts pay for some of the bill, ads do bring in the majority of the income for LiveJournal. It's just a step to be more competitive with the other blogging communities out there.
I, for one, am very happy with LJ. They rarely have outages, and are highly customizable. I *WAS* going to protest because of their censoring of interests, but that's been fixed, so I'm happy.
As for how they "told" us, I'm a little against that, but with how a large number of LJ users react to any change (by bristling, hissing, and causing a general ruckus) can you blame them for trying to keep it on the down low?

Ok, a little clarification to this post yesterday. Bandanas is an OKAY descriptor for what the turtles wear (tho it makes me think of more of a du-rag type thing.) but eyemask is just SUCH a better word for it! :P

THESE are annoying descriptors in my book:
1. Headbands (Brings to mind a valley girl turtle, complete with 80s bangs.. ack! scary!)
2. Kerchiefs (Little old Lady Mutant Ninja Turtles?)
3. Scarfs! (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] moronqueen I forgot this one!)

Also, these are only acceptable VERY sparingly (or if the story is from a POV of someone who doesn't know the turtles' names yet)
a. {color}-banded
b. {color}-wearing
c. {color}-loving
d. {color}-clad

If you want to use bandana, that is your prerogative, and it is acceptable. I just prefer eyemask because it paints a better picture in my mind.

PS. Please call them mask tails or bandana tails. I don't remember what scary descriptor word I saw the other day, but it made mica very sad. Now I rememeber what it was! Someone called them TASSELS! ARGH! NINJA TURTLES ARE NOT SHRINERS!!
micaturtle: (Grumpy)
it's not a bandanna, it's not a kerchief, it's NOT a headband

IT'S AN EYEMASK FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

.. or a mask. JEEZ LOUISE PEOPLE! ARGH!
micaturtle: (Grumpy)
ARGH!
Stoopid Verizon. They blow chunks as a cell phone company *smacks them around thoroughly* I mean, WTF? 0.50 a MINUTE for overages? I can do better than that with a pay phone! Grrrrr. So I got a bill of around $350 this month. *sigh* I know, I know, I've been talking to Jenn([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) too much. *grumps* I need to be more careful with my timing. Damn cell phone companies, they are making a killing off of BOTH of us. ARGH.

I WAS going to send Jenn flowers for Valentines day, but that plan is now nixed since I am essentially broke (and I am NOT digging into my tax refund, that $$ goes for the security deposit on our apartment when Jenn moves out here)

*sigh*

Well, I need to harrass my mom tonight into going to another cell company. Alltell or something. Also I need to give her the info on bundleing her interweb, phone, and cable. I also have to work at my Dad's flower shop tonight since it is the NIGHT OF DOOM (aka Valentines Day Eve) blech. lots of Bulhooey to do. Might as well make a list

+ Write HTML for new site
+ Call Mandy II and harrass her about Tshirt and Anime Club
+ Finish HTML and poll for SFanimeclub.com
+ Send Jenn her new icon
+ Work on laundry
+ Email SWLoli about TMNT Lolita dress

sigh. I'm so sick of evilness. GO AWAY CORPORATE AMERICA!

Then HOW did you get here? oh yeah, I might have accidentally given my URL out to tmnt fans... BAD MICA!

ok, here is what I CURRENTLY have to say about my obsession, Kino's Journey:

*incoherant fanzombie noises* waaaaattttcccchhhh kino... it FARKS with your head. The nice thing about Kino's Journey is that it seems like the fandom of it is populated with mostly smarter people. And that's a nice change. I'm so used to dealing with 12 yr olds because I'm a Ninja Turtle fan... It's nice that Kino only really attracts people who are smarter ... but the downside is that Kino fans tend to not have as twisted of a sense of humor as me... oh well, that leaves even more open jokes for me to mess with... like this one:
