|02:19 pm - Crashing the barriers|
Snape and Lupin as Fraggles
First day I felt worse after I got to work than before I left the house. I'm going to see my GP at some point anyway, if I still feel bad then, I'll ask him what's wrong with me. The hypocondriac in me, thinks it's the beginnings of ulcers. The practical part of in me thinks it's the hypocondriac in me.
List five fictional people -- from television, movies, books, whatever -- that you had a crush on as a child (or early teens). Then post this on your LiveJournal so other people can be assured that you're as weird as they thought.
Luke Duke - I know, I know. Everyone else was after the dreamy one, but I always liked the intellectual hillbilly.
Scott Summers - On a date with Phoenix Jean when she held back his eyebeams with her new Phoenix powers, and I saw his face for the first time, that was love.
Ben Grimm - I loved how gentle he was with Alicia.
Tip - The boy Ozma was before she became the loveliest Mary Sue in Oz.
Dangermouse - Hey, he's the strongest, he's the quickest, he's the best.
Robert Lovelace - Here's a bonus which is out of scope because this was late teens, not early teens. I still drool over him.
I got paid an interesting compliment yesterday. I was told I was one of the most geniune, straight-forward people my lunch companion had ever hung with. I am who I am with no apologies, no excuses. I laughed and said I hate people like that. The only people I've ever met who said that's how they were used it as an excuse to belittle and insult others. (Well, I'm honest, and I have to tell you that you suck. And you have no defence, because I'm being honest and sharing my feelings, and that automatically makes me better than a) you and b) pretty much everyone else too.)
I hope that's now how I use it.
Today was really tiring.
I feel unusual because my antidepressants are making me hairy.
I'm so happy. I just found out that I have been accepted into Harvard. And Yale. I don't know which to choose... oh, why is life so hard sometimes?
I want to tell the world that I love you all! You're all so special to me!
I am sharpening my knives before I go to work today, because I'm going to cut out Robert's heart and feed it to him for losing my mail.
Today, I got a digital camera! Yes! I'm so ugly. Don't look at my photos pleeeeeze.
You should all do this quiz! It's amazingly accurate. You just put in your name and birthday, and it will tell you what your favourite sexual position is.
If I weren't so indecisive, doing an automatic livejournal post might take less time than doing a manual one.
That's enough for now. But I'll leave you with this thought - sharing your life with strangers on the internet is the cheapest form of therapy available. Leave a comment and tell me I'm beautiful.

When I spoke to the people of Bank of America shortly after the purchase, I asked them if we were going to be getting new BoA cards when the rollout finished. The person I was talking to said that they wouldn't, they'd just roll them out as the old one expired.
So when hoppie got his card two weeks ago, it didn't phase me. I figured his had expired. I don't think I reproduced that conversation here, but I will now, just for fun.
Me: It was mostly a you mail day.
Hoppie: But it's all junk mail.
Me: Oh, what about the one from the bank?
Hoppie: What one from the bank.
Me: Long thick white envelope that looks it's from the bank.
Hoppie: Holds up a letter This one? The one that looks like credit card spam.
Me: Hrm. It looked like a new bank card to me.
Hoppie: Of course I'm sure. I'll prove it to you. Opens the letter Ew! That's hideous.
Me: New bank card?
Me: What do we say....
Hoppie: Fine. Your Kung-Fu is best.
But then, the next day, mine came in the mail.
And then a week later, my second card game in the mail. (I do have two accounts.)
The cards are hideous looking, for one thing, and hard to read, who thought gold on gold was a good idea? and I want to buy glasses where they shop.
Admittedly they are better than holograph designs in psychedelic colors, but not by much.
Also, those cheap bastards didn't send any sleeve covers. I'm still using my Fleet Bay Bank of Boston covers.
Also, they sent this little mini check card that you put on your keychain.
Hoppie Yeah, I'm going to do that. Look! Steal my keys! Then you can have my house, my car, AND my money! Squeeeee!
Me: If you want it deactivated, you have to call the bank separately and tell them.
Hoppie: Where does it say that?
Me: I dunno. Read it on one of these 5 documents, some of them stretching to 12 pages of microscopic text.
Hoppie: I'm going to restate this to make sure I heard it right: They send me a mini bank card that I can't use in an ATM, I keep in something that I take out all the time, and could potentially lose at any moment, and doesn't require a pin to use, but if I don't want to use it, I have to make a special effort to deactivate it.
Hoppie: I remember when I thought Bay Bank was the largest evil in the banking world.
Me: Those were simpler times.
Current Mood: curious

I just got my BoA card in the mail the other day, too. They ARE ugly.
My account started in BayBank, then BankBoston, then Fleet, now BoA. Ah, the good ol' days....

Ah, a credit card company I don't hate and who don't seem to be minions of Satan. MBNA. PURE EVIL. Avoid at all costs, do not engage.
I don't wanna know that much about some of my livejournal readers! But I'll admit to you..huge crushes on Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Nottingham (duh, I've only mentioned it half a dozen times) 2. Flint from GI Joe. Tall dark and barely dangerous. Nummy. :) 3. Kermie. yes, a frog. *sigh* 4. The Duke Brothers. I just couldn't choose between them. ha! I was just looking for the book that #5 is in and I found my Bible from Lutheran School. One of my earliest school memories is feeling guilty 'cause Margie and I stuck trading card pics of the Duke boys in the front cover of our Bibles! How strange we were. I felt so guilty that I glued a tissue over it as a shield from prying eyes. hahaha I was a strange little girl. :) 5. I don't remember his name now and I can't find the book for the life of me but he was a witch in modern day New Zealand and she had a brother named Jocko who was being drained by a succubus type thing. I think it was called The Changeling but that doesn't sound right. I shall research! He was hot though.

I had Fleet in Framingham, and I had BoA in SoCal, so I have seen, firsthand, the evil transition. I now possess more cards of slightly various esthetics (or perhaps unaesthetics) than a fucking Hallmark store.
To this day, I can't link my old accounts with my new ones on the website. I can sort of do it through some slow lame method, but that is not good enough! CURSES!

one of the best things we ever did was dump Fleet BayBank Boston of New England. Er, Shawmut, too.
In all seriousness, it was just BayBank then. With each successive merger, I'm even more glad we jumped ship. Okay, so our current bank is in San Antonio, and I've never once set foot in the lobby (or any other part of their location). Who cares? I know they will never merge with anyone, and their staff members (all of whom I've dealt with by phone, of course) are infinitely more helpful than the drones I've had to deal with at FBBBofNE.
For a local backup, we do have an account at a credit union nearby. I have been in their office (although that's probably cheating, as their former location was exactly one floor above my office).

(Posted here instead of my own blog...)
My childhood fictional crushes:
Wonder Woman (the TV version). Linda Carter... sigh.
Betty and Veronica.
Velma from Scooby Doo. No, seriously.
Gold on gold? I got mine the other day and it was a truly hideous red, white, and blue with a bald eagle backdrop. I think I'm supposed to salute every time I look at it. It's garishly bright and just....yuck.
On the plus side, my old card still works so I'm ignoring the new one. I have it with me just in case they shut off the new one at some horribly inconvenient time. I'd ask you to keep your fingers crossed, but that would make typing horribly difficult.
Also, I failed to get keychain card or any paperwork - just the new card in one of those semi-cardboard folding sheets they come in. You must be special.
