I Need Some TUMS®

Oy, where do I begin? There are just too many ulcer-inducing news stories to choose from lately I'm having a hard time choosing which one to rant about first.

I think the one that still baffles me is the 29 year-old man in Arizona who successfully enrolled in a charter school as a 12 year-old. Not only did he enroll, he was there for TWO years before being detected. TWO YEARS. Apparently this was his FOURTH school he ran this scam on. It goes without saying that this guy is a convicted pedophile with a prison record (he served 7 years in an Oklahoma jail for making advances to a pair of 6 year-old boys...6. WTF is WRONG with people?!).

Granted the whole pedophilia aspect is reprehensible, my big question is what flaming retard enrolled this asshole in school? I haven't been able to find any specifics, but wouldn't an alleged 12 year-old be in like 6th or 7th grade? And don't even get me started on the defense that he "shaved off his body hair and wore makeup to conceal his STUBBLE." What, were the school administrators checking for pubes when he enrolled just to make sure or what? What-the-fuck difference does ANY of that make?! He's got fuckin' crow's feet and hands like Bigfoot. Are you kidding me?! Whoever (re: whatever school employee) enrolled him in school should be exposed to the world for the moron that they are, ridiculed, then FIRED. Insane! I'm still shaking my head. Just when you think you've heard it all. Jesus.

Epilogue: Even more of the story is coming out now. Click here to read the latest.

Good Tiiimes!

Yes, I'm finally back. I originally thought I was back, then I found out that my newly-installed DVD player was playing so dark, it made every movie I watched look like Cabin in the Sky. THEN I discovered that the new used keyboard I bought, had several keys that didn't work. Sooo, I ended up having to take it all back and get them to fix them both. When I initially called to tell them about the DVD issue, they talked to me like I was nuts, arrogantly telling me to "oh, just adjust the contrast/brightness" of my monitor in the preferences panel. Fuckin' DOI! Of course I tried that, but even turned up all the way, you STILL couldn't make out people's faces everything was so dark.

So, I took it back, they "recalibrated" it and a week later, I now have my computer back AND a new, fully-functional keyboard...with the support leg broken off. Delightful. If you're wondering what a "support leg" is, I just made the term up, cuz I really don't know what the official name is. Basically, it's a leg that runs the length of the keyboard that allows me to either keep the keyboard flat on the desk -OR- pull down the leg giving the keyboard a propped up, sloping position (which I prefer). So, I thought "fuck it" and tried to find a replacement online, only to find out that they're no longer being made. The only thing I'm finding that comes remotely close, is some Mac knockoffs called "iKey" keyboards, which come in white (yeah, just what I need, something else to obsessively clean) and look like cheap crap. So, I turn to eBay and eventually find one that is guaranteed to work and looks GREAT. While I'm bitching about my keyboard situation to a friend, (I also tried two local stores who carry Mac products and they both pointed me towards the inferior iKeyboard), I hear "You've got mail!" and find out that she's just wired me money, via PayPal to pay for the keyboard I'd bookmarked on eBay! How nice is that!? It's nice to be overwhelmed sometimes.

I really went through withdrawal, being without a computer for what seemed like an eternity. Not unlike being without transportation, it becomes such a part of your daily routine, then once it's gone, however briefly, it's extremely frustrating. However, I now have my computer back...again, and all systems are go.
