This will be one of the last times you see this sort of meme; I had to block the main Minion Quotes page on Facebook. One transphobic meme too many and I was done. I deleted quite a few of them that I had saved but hadn’t posted yet and won’t be saving or posting anymore of them. That said, the ones that are here will remain. Most of the memes were solid, except for the god posts and the shitty anti-trans humor. It was that last one that finally killed the page for me.

It seems that Hasbro Toy Shop managed to screw up our friend Shawn’s order; he’s been charged for shipping on an empty cart. I’m serious. There was apparently nothing in his cart, but he got an order number and a charge for shipping. I have no idea what the hell Hasbro was even going to send, except for maybe an empty box. It looks as though we’re going to be parting with a Bumblebee set and maybe a Throne of the Primes. But Shawn’s not the only one who had trouble with ordering. 

There were a lot of complaints about HTS this year. A lot of people complained about items being removed from their carts. Then there was the queue and the resulting wait. A lot of people were left unsatisfied by the experience and many are saying that they’d rather pick up the Throne from TakaraTomy. The more I hear about this, the more it sounds like the garbage I dealt with via Matty Collector. Prime said he wondered if Digital River was the one running HTS. (They apparently ran Matty when it was functional, if you could call it that.)

Scamper’s developed an odd noise. We’re not sure what it is but it needs to be fixed. I’m worried, as you can imagine, especially about the cost. But it looks like we’ll be renting a car when we hit TFCon in October. I’m thinking that Scamper won’t be able to make it. That’s not a pleasant thought.

My schedule has gone back to being stupid. I’m working a 17:00 to 22:00 on Friday. I’m not happy about it, either. I get that they’re trying to be “fair” but this is just ridiculous. It drives me crazy, to be honest and I don’t like staying so late, mostly because my schedule varies so wildly. Most nights when I stay until 22:00, I have to be in early the next morning. It screws with my sleeping pattern, to put it mildly. I’d really like a more set schedule, but I know that won’t happen.

It’s not as humid now. I’m more than fine with this. However, we already have leaves that are changing color. I get that it’s late August, but this is just sad.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
