I REALLY LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS
Lately my brain has been going every which way regarding The Big Breakup of 2014: one moment I’m all ‘no, it’s for the best and I’m doing really really well and I’m going to focus on ME for a change’, the next moment I miss him so much I want to throw up. Luckily I have been able to suppress every urge to contact him (I think he blocked me everywhere as well, so probably wouldn’t do me much good anyway), but it’s costing me so much mental energy. I just wish my brain wasn’t so occupied with him all the time. I realise it just needs time and in a few months it will be very different, but I want to stop feeling hurt that he is not contacting me either. So yay, fun times in my head!
On to more fun things: this weekend I went to a stained glass workshop and I created a stained glass dragonfly and it is very pretty. This seems like a craft I could really get into! And I started my Octopus sweater, so far it’s working out but I am only working on the edge. Pretty sure all hell will break loose once I start the actual pattern. ;-)
How are you guys holding up?
That is super pretty!
Thank you! If anyone is interested in the dress: it’s by Yumi, and I just found out that House of Fraser in the UK sells the brand as well, meaning I no longer have to pony up the insane import fees for my Modcloth orders. I love that store, but buying things in Europe saves me a LOT of money. :-)
bapgeek2geekbap replied to your post: “Okay, now that I’ve synced my iPad to the cloud, the new Phone seems…”:turn on 2step verification!
Sorry, 2 step verification for what? Because when I had that on for gmail, I couldn’t get mail on my phone or iPad. Do you mean my lock screen or? Man, I feel stupid right now.
Sorry for butting in, but I just discovered last night that it is possible to use two step verification on your ipad/phone etc: when you turn in on, you can generate a device-specific password, which you can then enter under your general mail settings on your phone!

After only one week of waiting and sending 46 emails, my PS4 has arrived! Apparently the first one the store sent got stolen off the truck, and the seller wanted to wait until the investigation was completed before sending me a new one or giving me my money back. Luckily they are members of a ‘safe shopping’ network, so I used that network to negotiate for me. And lo and behold, the very next day they send me a replacement. Learned one thing though: next time I won’t go for the cheapest site, but a reliable one. I should have used a payment method with buyers protection as well, which I normally do (PayPal or iDeal), but theirs wasn’t working and my spidey senses weren’t tingling that much at that point. I’m just very relieved it’s here and in perfect working order. :-)
I’m glad the portrait of Ben Franklin stayed the same on the new $100 bill. There’s something about his slight, tight frown, the paternal hint of disappointment in his eyes and those pursed, sealed lips that seem to say, “I don’t approve of what you’re doing, but I can’t stop you from rolling this banknote into a straw and ripping a fat rail of white lightning in the Buffalo Wild Wings handicapped bathroom stall, you goddamn beautiful disaster.”
In other news, I have decided to buy a PS4 and Destiny, after playing on Saturday with intergalacticteaparty. And already I’m looking at that Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor game. Last game I totally and utterly fell in love with was Skyrim, so I’m hoping to find another gem this year! Diablo III should be cool as well. Down the rabbit hole I go!
