Ranting Frenzy

*edit* I’m Site of the Month at Aneesah’s site! Thank you so much hun!

Due to my feeling crapalicious the past two days I completely forgot to thank everyone who voted for my bears at the Quilting Bee’s Dress the Honeybear contest. My Pixy bear was a Club Favorite and received 19 votes. Thank you very, very much to all who voted! .

Now, for my rants….

I loathe how over $50 million dollars was spent on Bush’s stupid inauguration. I guess he’s making up for the last election, where they threw eggs at his car and all. That money could have gone to something else. Something more important than a stupid ball and popular bands. I feel sick at the thought. Lloyd Garver from CBS news wrote an article entitled ‘Dear Mr. President’ and I couldn’t agree more with what he said. Argh, I’ll leave this at that, for I feel my blood pressure rising just thinking of it .

I’ve been checking my stats, since I haven’t done that in a while, and have noticed loads of people who aren’t part of the Nostalgic Sparkles Clique posting codes from the clique on their site. I appreciate that they’re even linking back to the clique, but the point is to JOIN and not just paste the code on their site as an adoption. It even says on the code page itself: “These are not for use on personal sites, graphic shrines, blinkie collections, etc. These are for my clique and members clique pages only.”

And while I’m on the subject of cliques, I find it not only hilarious, but absolutely disrespectful when someone steals pages from my site and then has the audacity to submit their site to my cliques. This hadn’t happened in a while, but while going through Lil’ Mama Clique submissions I found someone who did. It just boggles my mind how people can be so dense. Did they think I wouldn’t notice?!

Also, I hate how pixiehost is still having problems with my billing. They sent about 12 different e-mails trying to withdraw the money and it didn’t work. My CC shows no new transactions. They added a new “send payment” feature, finally, but I’m afraid if I send it that they’ll keep taking money out if they ever get the billing thing to work. All I know is, I need to send that payment. The last thing I need is for them to shut down my site again. Hisss.

I hate how I have my Popples in a pile on top of a dresser when I can have them on that empty shelf in the bedroom. The kids had been using it for their toys but no longer use their top bunk and can’t reach up there, so they took everything down and just put them in a Rubbermaid tote. I need to organize my new Rainbow Brite stuff and there’s just no space.

I hate now we haven’t gotten the frame and boxspring for the twin bed from storage and taken down that massive, horrible bunk bed. I hate looking around here and feeling claustrophobic. There isn’t space for ANYTHING! My desk is a mess, the table is a mess. Grr. Damn not having enough money to do/fix what we need to!

Okay, *breathes* I think that’s all I need to get off my chest. That helped a little .
