Prime Days

So today is Prime Day, where the deals are hot and the weather hotter. It’s hard to believe that Prime and I ordered these tablets a year ago. They’ve been a game changer.

My appetite is slowly coming back; I’ve been making a point to actually eat some food twice a day. It’s been grab and go type things, as cooking is something I don’t want to do right now. The kitchen is far too warm and I sweat too easily. It’s a combination of the heat and humidity, but mostly the humidity. The medication doesn’t help, either.

I think I may be past the sadness portion of grieving; I can talk about Sammy and not start crying uncontrollably. I’m not saying that I’m a hundred percent better but I am getting there. I still need some time, though.

It’s supposed to cool down this week. I hope it does, as I am sick and tired of sweating because I have to walk through the house. It’s not fun, I tell you.

An Open Letter: To WordPress

Dear WordPress,

Y’all got some ‘splainin’ to do. Seriously.

You see, I read that wonderful report. Yes, that one. And guess what? Seems you guys provided the blogging platform for this Grucifer 2.0 guy. Did I mention that he uploaded files that had been stolen from the DNC? Because that’s kind of important here.

So yeah, you guys let this guy upload stolen files, you guys gave this guy a platform to spew out lies, and you guys were part of this lovely little cluster fuck. No, you are not directly responsible, but you didn’t help. But that’s not the worst thing about this.

That fucking blog? It’s still up and running. I can find the damned thing if I go looking. (No, I am not posting a link.) You haven’t shut it down.

Which is what I’m about to tell you: shut the damn thing down.

It may not be much, but it’s a start for making amends. It’s better than what you seem to be doing right now, which is nothing. Because yes, you guys screwed up. You need to fix that. And shutting down that site would be a great first step. So hop to it already.

Sincerely pissed off,

Silverwynde

Sunday Morning Nostalgia Crush!

The opening to Star Fairies. I only watched it for Lavender, the winged unicorn. Because unicorn, natch.

Fly Bys

Well, technically, you only need two…

If you ever decide to visit northeastern Wisconsin, you might want to skip mid to late July. That’s when the EAA Airventure and Fly-In and Lifest take place and every hotel in a thirty mile radius will be booked solid. Oh and the Motel 6 in Oshkosh will charge $150 per night. That’s not a joke.

I’ve decided to take some time off of social media. There’s been way too much drama on Facebook lately and the “controversy” over the banning of plastic straws is angering me. Yes, I get it: it’s not a huge amount of plastic in the ocean. It only happens to choke sea life when swallowed. We also have alternatives and we can create other alternatives for disabled people. We can figure this out, just knock it off with the “it’s not a huge deal” bullshit. The whataboutism doesn’t help either. Do something, instead of nothing.

I had to quit following one of the blogs that I enjoyed. The blogger in question would post memes and that sort of thing. Most were funny but he’s been veering off into some rather conservative territory as of late. Last night was the final straw, if you will; the meme he posted said “If you have a dad, thank him. Your mom probably wasn’t even in the mood.” Yeah, that was over the line so I deleted his blog from favorites and most visited. My sense of humor is twisted, but that’s just gross.

As I was clearing out my browser history, I stumbled upon the address of my ex-friend’s blog. For the hell of it, I gave it a click. She’s deleted all of her previous posts and my blog isn’t on her blogroll. So that screed she wrote about me is gone but only because she’s starting some “brand new” life phase or something. It also took her over four years to get rid of it. It goes without saying that this is the last time I hit up her blog. The address has been wiped clean from my browser and I won’t be going back.

I have to work at 15:45. Another day, another dollar. At least it is at Costco. If I was still working at Wal-Mart, it’d only be a nickel, if I was lucky.

Two Things

Thanks to Transformers Luxembourg and Nerdist, we now have pics of Power Charge Bumblebee, which is one of the upcoming toys.

I have to be honest here: I think that the figure looks absolutely fantastic. I love the battle mask, as it has a very insect feel to it–especially the eyes–and the VW mode is gorgeous. If someone had told me when I was nine years old that Bumblebee would be one of the most popular characters in the Transformers franchise, he would get his own movie and he’d get such nice looking figures, I would have thought them insane. But here we are.

We’ve also got a look at the SDCC exclusive Studio Series Bumblebee Retro Rock Garage set from both Transformers Luxembourg and Hasbro Toy Shop. The set will cost you approximately $60US and it will be available at SDCC for purchase and on HTS after the show. There seems to be more excitement over the dino cassettes rather than the Bumblebee; I’m thinking of dropping a few hints online to let people know that if they have no use for Bee, I can take him. Because I need all of the Bumblebees.

However, it seems I don’t need that little thing called food or money. I might starve, but I’ll be happy.
