Sorry for the double post but. It's been a month.

I.. managed to fall asleep watching the stream. (Tom's streaming, btw) Had my phone balanced against my hand while laying down. Didn't know I was sleeping until my phone fell forward, hitting me smack in the nose. Now I can't sleep, because adrenaline. And it's already been a long day...

EDIT: To save space:
I feel like 2020 just wants to hit ALL the wrong boxes.

So apparently firenados are actually a thing...

Pretty sure nobody's going to see this, since I'm editing an old post and not making a new one, but I just need to rant for a bit.

I'm angry with my sister. Well, technically she's my half-sister, but we grew up as brother and sister. So she got married, and decided to have a child with her wife. (That happened.) Had the kid, kid was growing, then I got word that my sister was planning on getting a divorce, with no reason other than "I've been feeling it for a while". Her wife, on the other hand, was shocked. (I talk to them both, moreso her wife.) Last week, I found out why she wanted a divorce in the first place, from her wife. Basically, my sister, who was raised by the best mother either of us could have asked for, was having an affair with an old roommate. Late nights, handmade gifts, whispered phone calls.. and eventually it became too much, and they've split.

To top it off, our mother left us 10 acres of woods, split between us, and all we had to do was pay taxes once a year. Not that much, all told, and my sister said (like 9 years ago) that she would take care of it, and not to worry. Well, without a word to me, she almost defaulted on it, and her father-in-law had to pick up the slack, which he has been keeping up with for years and now won't do since they're not together anymore. So now I have an annual tax bill coming because she never told me any of that.

If she wasn't 3 hours away and in another state during COVID, I'd have slapped her by now, with all the crap she's put her family through. And I bet my mother would, as well. She raised us better than that. I honestly don't know if I'll ever forgive her for this. Her family didn't deserve this. She should have known better. She KNOWS better. She's supposed to be better than this.. but I guess she's really just not.

I'll still keep in contact with the rest of her family.. They've been good to us, and they welcomed us with open arms, warts and all. They... they deserve better.

I just feel like crap about all this because the most I can offer is a warm bed and food, three hours and two states away, where they have no real reason to go unless things go farther south than any of them will let it get. There's just nothing I can do but sit and listen to the havoc my.. sister.. has brought to the family she became a part of. She needs to get slapped. Even if it's just for the sake of it and nothing else.


To anyone who bothers to look back at this.. Well, thanks for listening. And if nobody does, well.. thanks anyway. I needed this more than I realized.

One of my cats died at the vet last night... Third time constipated, but wasn't making any pained noises this time...Just loving on us. Like he was ready to go and wanted to enjoy his last days with us... First couple times, he was in so much pain when we took him to the vet. This time though, I'm sure he was hiding it, because within hours he coded and stepdad had to make a decision. There was no way he wasn't suffering, but he was his normal happy loving self...

Car trouble. One thing after another, but kind of all at once.

My daily is an '10 Impala, and my father's is a '13 Model S. The Impala leaks power steering fluid, has massive brake pulsation and the torque converter has been juddering. The Tesla stopped charging today, so he has about 60 miles before it completely dies. My CJ-5 seems to need a wheel bearing, and the wipers are shot, his DeLorean (which WAS his spare car) blew a fuel pump, my motorcycle is still damaged from my wreck, and my father's runs at a calm 18 volts. Now winter is approaching, and the Impala is now the only car we can use through the winter, while we both have busy schedules.

He's bringing the Tesla to have it looked at later this week, but even if they diag it that day, it may take weeks or even months, and many thousands of dollars, before he gets it back and working right. There's.. not even a reason to cross my fingers at this point. I guess I'll undercoat the CJ, and find my heavy winter gear. It's gonna be cold.

Have come back a couple times in the last month, and noticed the forum seems.... On the decline.

Granted, it's always been on the decline. I just wish there was something we could do to bump up membership around here and make it feel less... dead?

How active is the reddit? I feel like individualized forums are kind of shifting out of popularity in favor of services like reddit which house thousands of communities under a single login...

It is more like a generational thing.

This type of services have simply fallen out of people tastes in favor of things like facebook and twitter and whatnot.

As such there is very little to do but but enjoy what we have.
There are three things that motivate people: Money, fear and love.
