Ah, Walmart.com. You are full of stoopid.

I order the Orphan Black Funko of Helena in her bloody wedding dress through Walmart.com because it has a free ship to store option. Monday I start looking through my email to clarify the Tuesday pick up time. No emails. WEIRD. I never delete emails for stuff I've ordered. Hell, I still have the email for the Cyberpowerpc I bought 4 years ago. So I look at my checking account and see that, yes, the charge is on my card. Call them and they claim to have no record of my order. Told me to get with my bank and do a charge back. Rather than do that, I call the store it's supposed to be shipped to and they say, oh, yeah, it's here. IDJITS. All the same Helena is now sitting next to Agent Carter. Funko, I wish you would be consistent in providing bases to display the figures. Katana had one but Cowboy Deadpool didn't and neither did Agent Carter or Helena.

Computer is being looked at. HOPING it'll be as easy as them putting thermal paste on it.

Returned Sony headphones because they sounded staticky in PS4's main menu. Brother says, oh, it must be something you did. Uhh, NO. Granted, it didn't happen in game but I'm not hanging onto them if they do it in one area. He tells sister that it's because I didn't want them that I say that. I didn't want him to spend so much on them when a cheaper pair would be fine. Replacement pair is Hyperx Cloud Core and so far not super thrilled with them. On mic one person was fine and another muffled, so I guess it can be the one person's mike. I think what I'm not thrilled with is I'm used to the Turtle Beach where they plug into the PS4 and not the controller. Gonna have to call Best Buy to see if their replacement plan covers how the Turtle Beach headsets usually break.

EBay SUCKS. It's been a long time since I sold on there but now your listings won't show up right away. They will show up approximately 24 hours from when you created the listing, or even as much as 36. Do you get a credit for that? NOPE.

Square, why do you sell those little magstripe readers that you know won't work that well? It's quite frustrating.

Yeah, they're cheap and also a really really cheap alternative to expensive credit card processing machines but when it takes SIX FREAKING TRIES to get the reader to accept a card, it's VERY ANNOYING.

Customer service even admitted they don't work as well, after trying to lay the blame on my cell phone's headphone jack, saying that it might be dirty. Dude, it's covered in an Otter case and even has a plastic flap that covers up the headjack port when it's not in use. And it only gets used when I drag my fat ass out of bed to do my mall walk. It worked on one of my cards first try but on others it took several tries. But the chip reader works good, so there's that! Sister has the stand on order to go with the iPad she purchased.

So to anyone interested in Square, don't bother purchasing the little square magstripe reader. It doesn't read well, whether you slide fast or slow, and they charge you extra to do manual entry, almost a full percent more. Either get a chip reader or a stand. Oddly enough the magstripe will at least try to work on my Samsung Galaxy S4 but my Galaxy Tab doesn't recognize it at all, except when I remove it, and THEN it tells me it's no longer connected. SIGH.

All the same, we will FINALLY be getting rid of the credit card machine we were tricked into buying, and which we paid WAAAY TOO FUCKING MUCH for. Seriously, over the course of the lease payments we could have probably bought almost 10 of them. Mild exaggeration, maybe.

Operation Make My Room PRETTY is underway.

Other than time spent in kitchen cooking, I spend all my time in my room and am finally looking to spruce it up.

Decided I wanted some shelves to put on the wall that I can fill with cute things to look at. Could make the shelves but for a first time foray, I went with cheap shelves from Ikea. Also picked up a turquoise bookcase for $30. Sister has some Closetmaid cubicals she got for her DVD collection so I got one with the ambition to paint it purple. After being told the process needed would be sanding, finishing, painting, and sealing, sister suggested stick on vinyl instead. One step process. Picked up some removable vinyl at Joann's. Sister slapped it on and voila! purple DVD case. With four shelves to fill I went knick knack hunting and got a skull to add to my collection plus a little dragon. Also bought some Naruto figurines off Amazon. There's an import shop at the local mall that had some cute little Naruto figurines but I saw the same exact ones on Amazon where you could get the whole set for the cost of one in that store. Also picked up a Suicide Squad Katana Funko to put on the shelf next to Rey. Now I need to track down the two other KISS Hello Kittys to complete the set. Hopefully with the new stuff installed I will be order to instill a better sense of organization in the room.

Started up a new PSN ID to play on and my very first friend...is a twelve year old LOL. Well, at least it wasn't the five year old talking about how he's Coolio and then something about his bunghole lol. Parents, why are you letting your five year old play The Division? It's not gory but it's certainly not encouraging to play a mission with a five year old.

Short Rib Bacon Egg & Cheeseburger
-3/4lb boneless chuck, trimmed
-3/4lb bone-in short rib, ribs removed, trimmed
-Salt & pepper to taste
-1/2lb thick-cut bacon
-4 large eggs
-American cheese
-4 Martin's Potato Rolls
-Lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mayo, etc
Cut chuck and short rib into 1" cubes, and spread out evenly on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Along with a food processor blade, place in the freezer for 15-25 minutes, or until very firm but not hard.
In a large food processor, in batches if necessary, add beef and frozen blade (sounds cool) - pulse until pebbly and no large pieces remain. Form ground beef into ~1/3lb patties, and place a deep divot in the center, to prevent the burgers from puffing/rounding.
In a large stainless sauté pan, fry bacon to desired doneness. Drain and reserve fat, wipe out pan, and place over high heat. Add half the bacon fat, placing the other half in a separate nonstick pan. Once bacon fat barely begins to smoke, add burgers, and fry the shit out of them until you have a crispy brown crust and the burgers lift off the pan easily. Once flipped, top with cheese, and reduce heat - cook to your desired doneness, but if you say anything over medium, you're wrong.
While burgers cook, heat bacon fat in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Toast buns in bacon fat, taking care not to absorb all of it. Once buns are toasted, add more bacon fat if necessary, and crack eggs into skillet - cook to desired doneness, but again, if you say anything more than runny-as-fuck, you're wrong.
Put the whole thing together and eat it.
Potato Salad with Balsamic Reduction
-2lbs multicolor fingerling potatoes, rinsed and cut into 1" pieces
-2 tbsp white vinegar
-2 tbsp salt
-3 tbsp grain mustard
-1/3 cup sour cream
-Fuckton of chives, chopped
-1 small red onion, chopped
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1 tsp paprika
-Salt & pepper to taste
-Balsamic vinegar, reduced to a syrupy consistency
In a large stock pot, place potatoes in approx 4 quarts cold water, adding 1 tbsp of white vinegar and salt (the vinegar helps the potatoes retain their shape). Bring to a rolling boil, and allow to cook for approx 15 min, until the potatoes retain their shape but are soft & creamy. Drain, place in a large bowl, and immediately toss with remaining white vinegar. Spread out on a large cookie sheet and allow to cool completely.
In the large bowl, combine remaining ingredients (except balsamic reduction). Once potatoes have cooled, toss everything together, and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Refrigerate if desired, and drizzle with balsamic reduction before serving.

If I start surfing through the WatchPeopleDie community on Reddit, maybe the customers will go away?

So because I'm still a child even in my 50s, I punished myself by bringing nothing for birthday lunch and told sister never mind on getting me something, I brought my own. Ritz crackers and cheese whiz for lunch, yum.

Fucking brother encouraging trailer trash to hang out even longer. Oh, she almost forgot she attached a charm to her necklace. At least she paid for it while assuring me she was coming back to buy a leotard. SURE YOU ARE. If it $16 is too much for shorts you're certainly not going to shell out for a leotard. And if you do come back PLEASE COME BACK when I'm not here. I swear you only came in because you were bored. I, however, am never so bored that I want someone to come in off the streets and spend half an hour trying on shit.

SORRY, dearie, you cannot use your mommy's card. Why is that, when everywhere else lets you do it, you ask? Because it's not YOUR CARD. Owner of the card has to present. I don't care if the teen dress shop will take it, I'm not going to. Oh, so you have your own card? Cool. Mommy will pay you back for it, I'm sure. Of course all the other places probably ran it through as a debit so you had to enter a pin number. We don't do that here, they want to charge us more for debit so thus we will always run it as credit.

And one phone call pretty much cinches why we will be closing at the end of the lease. Woman wants to know if we have adult jazz pants. I say yes and ask what size. She says she ordered child large online and when it came it was too small and she needs the pants today. SOOOO...she knew we were here and chose to buy them online, and only comes here because she needs it now. Well, BITCH, in another...five months you're gonna be shit out of luck. Have fun going into Portland in rush hour traffic! Unless things turn around we are shutting down. It's become real sad that we get excited about making $300 in a day. After ten years we should be doing well instead of just hanging in there and needing the money from sister's outside projects to keep things going. Sister added up her invoices from last year and came up with over $50k gross. In comparison the store sold $55k before taxes, and probably had to pay at least $22k to purchase the product.

Finished up Uncharted 4. Hmm, not sure if I'll do a replay of it, if I don't then there's nothing appealing about it until they decide to finally add on the co-op adventure mode. I did a run of Plunder but like the other versions, it seems like the people on my team are more interested in killing the opposing players rather than moving the idol.

Though I keep swearing I will never buy anything again from Gamestop, I slunk in there to pick up The Witcher: Wild Hunt for $29.95. It was the same price on Amazon and for the hell of it I checked Gamestop to find it was the same price and I could pick it up in store. SCORE! Haven't done a lot with it yet but the graphics are really good so far and Geralt is quite the hunk. From what I've heard other gamers say, you can get a lot of hours out of this one and they've done DLCs for it as well to extend the life of the game.

Uncharted 4 was a satisfying end to the Nathan Drake saga. I'd give it...8 out of 10.

Uncharted 4 Spoilers Ho!Collapse )

Body Wrappers is staffed by some of the STOOPIDEST PEOPLE EVAR.

Latest thing? Sending the wrong color of body tights. Not terribly stupid, you say? Well, when you compound it with the fact that the PACKING LIST had the right color and the person CIRCLED the number and color after it was pulled, yes, indeed, they are STOOPID.

Plus a rep called today to say the credit card number didn't go through. A credit card number that WAS NOT ON THE FUCKING ORDER FORM. A credit card we might have used once, but haven't since, but they seem to have that in permanent memory rather than the business debit card we use regularly.

I guess they needed to balance out one rep actually CALLING to tell us stuff was out of stock. This is really especially annoying because I called in the order rather than faxing it, so I could be sure they had the stuff in stock.

And I know my niece wasn't a saint as a little kid but she sure didn't get away with all the shit little kids do in the shop. Like the mom letting her little one wander around moving stuff around at whim, half-heartedly asking her to come stand by mommy. Cute factor is zeroed out real quick.

This is my punishment for saying to sister we should wait til back to school season before making any decisions on shutting down when the lease runs out.

Rhetorical question here...why are men so STOOPID?

Local guy sister deals with on a regular basis asks if she can make a certain item for him. As sister's emailer, I ask him to clarify which style he wants, as there are several different things considered to be cheerleader briefs. He doesn't respond. I email again, not as a reply, and once again attach images showing different types of briefs. His response? Pretty much asking the original question again rather than addressing the FUCKING IMAGES I SENT HIM.

Then there's the guy in a new group who has yet to pay for his custom stuff. 2 weeks after sister did a rush job to get it done for them, while suffering a migraine. And still hemming and hawing over who has the check and who will bring it.

Oh, and apparently the Capezio rep is a MONKEY. I ordered tights in an email, messed up the code but put the right description in it, and rather than taking a moment to go HMMM the description doesn't match the stock number, the monkey just enters it in and goes on her merry monkey way. Why can't I work for these companies??? I'd have looked at it and saw the description didn't match stock number and would have contacted the person to make sure which she wanted, footless or convertible pink tights.

Speaking of STOOPID, REPUBLICANS...are you REALLY REALLY going to choose that buffoon Trump as your candidate? Mr Put up a Wall between us and Mexico? Mr I'll make Apple build their stuff here because none of my companies have ever gone overseas to get cheap labor? Mr let's force people out of the rent control building so I can make billions off condos? Why are you STOOPID WHITE PEOPLE falling for his shit?

So after begging a couple times on Reddit, I finally got a guest pass to Black Desert Online. Download it then sign in and...big ass download requiring hours to finish. SIGH. Turn on the PS4 to play The Division instead...which required updating due to the latest patch being released that day. Did I sign on in the morning to get the download done? NOPE. So no game to play last night lol. And this morning Black Desert is undergoing a maintenance until about 9am so no quick peak at it before going to do my daily walk thing.

Car got fixed by auto shop rather than brother in law due to his concern that he wouldn't be able to do the timing belt right, which could potentially damage engine. Sister wouldn't tell me how much but I'm guessing it was around $500. Did several things to it and now it doesn't overheat anymore but makes this annoying squealing when I first start it up and turn the steering wheel. Didn't do that before. SIGH.

Like The Division. Took about a week and a half to finish the main missions and get to the level cap of 30. Now to collect the various media things to explore the story more. Good thing about it is they're planning to add stuff to it on a regular basis to increase its longevity. Until first expansion will be doing the daily missions and exploring the Dark Zone, which is not quite as stressful as it was in the beta. In the beta you were far more likely to get ganked by other players at the extraction spot. Haven't had that happen to me in the full version but haven't played in it a lot yet. Only problem I've had with the extraction point is the mobs popping up just as it's time to send items up to the helicopter. One thing I've learned is when it's time to do main missions you should queue up to draw other players in and get it done faster. Spent a couple hours one night struggling through a mission solo that I could have done in about 15-20 minutes with a group. Idjit me.

Second season of Daredevil popped. Rationed it and managed to draw it out over the weekend. Liked Elektra. Punisher was okay. It's best to go into these shows without a preconception of what the characters are. My only exposure to Elektra was the Jennifer Garner movie which, hey, I did kinda like and don't think it's as awful as people say. Punisher also from two movies, the Dolph Lundgren one and the one with Thomas Jane. First thought as it ended was I'm ready for the next season now. Though they've got three other series to do first, four if you count the first one of Defenders. Luke Cage is next, Iron Fist has been recently cast and is on its way to production, and there might be a second season of Jessica Jones before the Defenders.
