Didn't realize how long it's been since I actually made a post here.

Life's a bitch )

I was looking back on my rant from earlier and saw a bit that I need to clarify. Not that it matters to anyone else, but it matters to me. I've had comments come back to bite me in the ass, so for my own piece of mind, I'm clarifying.

Yes, I was a graphic designer for 15 years, but only the last 5 of those 15 were with a Fortune 500. In all honesty, I'm not sure if my other employers were on the Fortune 500 as I never bothered to look. In fact, the others don't even matter, as they no longer exist having been bought out by other companies a couple of time over.

Feel better now for putting this down.

Okay, I know this is petty, but for some stupid reason this is REALLY bugging me so if you're interested keep reading. If not, move along, move along, there's nothing to see. 'These aren't the droids you're looking for...'

I'm ranting about FFN. I know I'm not the best writer out there. Hell, I know that my stuff sucks, but I post anyway. My ego doesn't need stroking like some writers on FFN, but is it TOOOOO much to ask for one fucking review there!!!

Run-on rant alert!!!!!!

I don't care if you love or hate my drabbles, but to see writers (I use that term very loosely) who can't spell, or at the very least use a spell checker, whose grammar is so poor that it makes me wonder how they got through school, or seeing sentences that are so poorly constructed that you have to read it multiple times just to figure out what they are saying, get several reviews stating that "This is the best thing I ever read" REALLY pisses me off!!! What ever happened to using proper grammar? What ever happened to proper spelling? What ever happened to VOCABULARY?!?!?!?!?

To see these folks use 'ware' when they mean 'where' or 'there' for 'they're' or my favorite 'hear' for 'here' and get rave reviews is just so disheartening. Seeing SHIT like that get a following makes me wonder if it's even worth keeping this account open. Hell, it makes me wonder if I should even bother writing anything down.

My hubby knows that I write to use it as a sling-shot for when I get frustrated while editing videos professionally, to get the creative juices flowing again and get my client projects done within the contracted time frame. I write for fun, but I still make sure (or at least try to) that everything is spelled correctly, that my grammar is correct and that it makes some sense to the reader.

If you like it, tell me. If you hate it, tell me. You will not hurt my feelings. I have a very thick skin. I was a graphic designer for 15 years with a Fortune 500. I'm a photographer/videographer/editor now. I'm used to people telling me "It Sucks".

I don't want fake complements. I'm not afraid of negative comments like some are.

Just say something! Anything!

Okay, My Dad just called me and "asked" me to get "my" piano out of "his" basement. Now don't get me wrong here. I've be trying to get my piano out the house for 10 years now. Yes, I know that sound like a lot of time for it to be hanging at Dad's place, but in all honestly, we really just don't have a lot of room for it.

His basement doesn't flood, so it's been a great place for it. Our basement (more accurately the utility room) does take on water every time we get a good rain. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about that. All the houses in this neighborhood have the same problem. It's actually the main line that causes the problem, but the city will not do anything about it. So all we do is complain and all they do is ignore us.

So getting back to the piano. I really have no idea where we can put it. I know my Dad will not get rid of it, but he will piss and moan and bitch until we do get it out now that he's on a tear about it. My hubby wants to put is upstairs in the extra room that we turned into a "play room". It has art supplies, my sawing machine, his guitars, my music stand and flute, stuff like that. So all and all, it would be fine up there, I just don't want it to be upstairs. It's a beautiful piano that deserves to be "shown off" not tucked away. I still go over to my Dad's place twice a month to clean and polish it. And to play it for a while.

What I would like to do is get all the "junk" that belongs to my husband out of the basement and move some stuff in our family room down there, so that we can room some furniture in the living room into the family room. I call our basement the "Black Hole". Stuff goes down there and never leaves. It's permanently trapped down there. It has turned into an unusable part of our house, and it doesn't need to be.

I have threatened my hubby that I will throw the stuff out with or without his help. But I know if I do that, it will only cause grief. I really would like my Dad to stop bitching, my hubby to get off his ass and throw the stuff out and help me move stuff around. I would really like my piano here so that I can enjoy it, so that my daughter can take piano lessons and just have a beautiful piece of "furniture" in my house.

Sorry for the LONG rant. I'm just tired of all of this. Dad gets on little kicks every once and a while and usually all I have to do is wait him out and he'll forget about it. This time, he's not. This time, it's not just a kick and I'm getting drained over it.

Thanks for listening to me. Again sorry for the rant.
