My computer is trying to kill me

Dear computer,
Can you please stop being the most annoying POS on Earth?  The slowness, the random attacks where suddenly everything is "Not Responding" at once.  I will punch you. Something is up your butt the past week or so, and I'm gonna need you to calmly and quietly remove it.  I mean you don't really have a "butt" per se, but if you did, I guess it would be...the DVD drive?  Is it weird that I'm suggesting computers have body parts and that I am spending time looking for the ass?  Yes it is, but in my defense I live alone and am most likely insane.  I will write my manifesto as soon as you GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER, COMPUTER!  

So I literally cannot believe it's been 25 years since the Challenger exploded.  How is that possible?  Raise your hand if you were, like me, a little kid watching it on TV at school.  I remember I really didn't know what was going on since I'd never seen a space shuttle launch before.  I didn't know anything was wrong until it was very clear all the teachers were really upset.  Here's Ronald Reagan's speech addressing it on TV that night. 

How about some pictures?

Here's a picture of a weird turkey duck hybrid type of animal.  Seriously this thing is weird, and when we were in Florida it kept walking up to our table while we were eating.  I would guess it's a type of duck, but what's up with your face, duck!?  Also I don't like to be bothered by mascots when I'm eating.  And that's pretty much what you are.

Look I'm a giant!

When I was in junior high, I had these shorts.  I got them at a store called Wearhouse of Fashion.  Any West side Clevelandars out there know this store?  You could get like 3 grocery bags worth of clothes for $20 or something ridiculous.  I'm not joking.  You brought your own bags.  And it was just a huge warehouse.  My mom, sister and I and my friend Kim and her mom used to go once every couple months and spend hours there.  It was awesome.  The clothes were not.  But I loved them anyway.  Especially these shorts.  I had two pairs, each with patterns.  I wore a lot of matching pocket tees with them. 

Behold these beauties:

Some comments:

1. Right?  I wore these.  In public.  A lot.
2.  I guarantee that purple shirt is tucked in in the front but not the back.
3.  Pink slouch socks.
4.  Keds.
5.  Not pictured:  My oversized barette, my rolled up t-shirt sleeves, my tail, my pride.

FIRST, you bitches! Hahahahahahaha!

Don't feel bad, OKSS. My favorite outfit in high school was a pair of high waisted, ill-fitting jeans, and a long sleeved, skin tight, green plaid BODY SUIT. No shit. I wore that shit together. I think someone put a picture of it on FB not that long ago, and I DIED.


p.s. The body suit? yeah, it had like three snaps which snapped the crotch together. Because that's comfortable. I wore it anyway.

Okay. I want to make you feel better - so I put up a picture of me from high school on my blog.

Guess which one is me.

Kiss kiss,
