08:20 am - ARG DAMMIT

I have had the next Kyou Kara Maoh disks (part 2, disks 5-8) at the top of my Netflix queue since SEPTEMBER and have not had them sent yet. I tracked down a phone number at Netflix to call, but I'm currently so frustrated that I'm going to burst into tears on the phone if I try to call. I *know* that the availability on the queue doesn't necessarily reflect actual availability, but I'd think that sometime since SEPTEMBER my sending in my DVDs would have coincided with it actually being available.

I may have to torch my entire queue except for these disks just to see if THAT works.


P.S. Plz to not be helpfully suggesting torrents. I am sick and tired of explaining why I can't do that.

Via this person here, a feature on LJ where if you type something like:

<lj user="telophase" title="the most awesome person evar">

you get:

the most awesome person evar

Nifty idea, but hopefully not to be used in associating RL names with LJ names.

10:20 am - If you happen to be getting anything from Amazon before the end of the month...

...and want to support Project Blue Rose and associated endeavors, feel free to click trhough my Amazon Associates Link, which kicks back a few pennies from each purchase, which then get deposited into the PBR bank account and we use them to fund reprints or anything else directly associated with the books and site, like the domain name registration. :D (Spurred by me noticing that we've got $9.83 in kickbacks this month, and Amazon doesn't pay out unless it's over $10. Well, they *do* roll it forward to the next month, but the principle! The principle!)

Or if you'd prefer, you could also shop through this Amazon Associates link, which kicks back to an online friend of mine who is struggling with medical bills right now. I'll let her ID herself if she wants to.

You know what's hard? Trying to work out if the rental on a house* is median or above median for the area when my zip code contains million-dollar houses, historic houses, student housing, and crack houses. This particular one is showing as 100% above median ... but that median includes the really awful housing next to the railroad tracks a mile away. University areas ftw. Aarg.** ETA: And the really awful housing is disproportionately rental, compared to the area this house is in. Hmmm.






* Considering moving to a house when my lease is up, as tired of apartments. Renting, not buying.


** The house is also pretty big. I think it's not too far off what it's worth, at any rate.
