Can someone please explain to me what men get out of cat-calling? No, really - I don't get it. It's not like most women are actually going to stop and respond. You're not going to get anything out of it besides looking like an asshole. There were a few guys who made comments as I was walking to and from Best Buy on my lunch break - because there are ALWAYS guys making comments if I walk this particular route -_- - but I think the "best" one was, "Hey baby, want a hot dog?"

...no, really. THAT WAS HIS LINE. It took me a second to realize what just happened and process what he said as I stood at the crosswalk, and the leer on his face made me want to turn around and punch him.

Seriously?! Just... no. NO. Ughhh.

Dear Clothing Designers,

I understand that, as a rule, you use people that are, on average, a size 3 as the template for your clothing. However, when making clothes for the average masses, can you please take certain things into account?

1) Just because I am a size 14-15 does not automatically mean that I am 5'7. Please make jeans for those of us who are a bit on the petite side. I don't want to try on jeans that make my ass and thighs look amazing and then cry because they are five inches too long. No, I am not going to pay thirty dollars for your jeans and then get them hemmed. To hell with that.

2) Why must you make sizing into a rocket science? Even within brands, I can be one size in the dark wash and another in the light wash - in the same style. Never mind when I start switching to other brands. Can't you all have a single template and stick with it? It gets confusing and extremely obnoxious when I have to take two-three sizes of everything into the dressing room.

3) For god's sake, just because I'm not a skinny mini does not mean that I want to wear jeans that have sequins all over them, or that sparkle in even dim lighting, or a belt with a huge and tacky flower. Because that's all the clothes are - TACKY. And they will stay on the hanger in the store where they belong. Some companies have got it right, I will admit, but some of you have faaaaar to go.

4) And in this same vein, if I pick up a shirt, size large, for the love of all that is holy - it should look like a large! Not a large small. This will succeed in nothing but me laughing at your so-called "large," tossing it back into the pile from whence it came, and walking out of your store to find one that knows that a large means it can fit over both breasts, not just one.

In closing, please take the average and larger sized women into consideration when designing your clothing. Especially if you are designing your clothing for the average to larger sized woman.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Andrea

So, who can tell that I went shopping yesterday? -_- I don't know why I try shopping anywhere other than Fashion Bug - it never ends well. Never mind that malls were hell, but at least I was expecting that, and I needed to finish my shopping. Granted, I should have been expecting the above nonsense, but I actually had faith that I would be able to find a pair of jeans pretty easily. Hah! I should know better.

Dear Idiots In My Hallway,

I don't care if you smoke up. Really, I don't. What you do on your own time is your business. But for Goddess' sake, be smart about it! I don't smoke, and even I know that you're supposed to put a towel under the door so that the smell doesn't leak through the cracks and make the whole hallway reek of the pungent smell of pot... KIND OF LIKE IT DOES NOW. IF I GET A MIGRAINE BECAUSE THIS HALLWAY SMELLS RANK, AND IT'S LEAKING INTO MY ROOM, IT'S ON YOUR HEAD, AND I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND KILL YOU.
And you - yeah, you next door and above me. Do you have elephants up there or something? What's with the banging? And at 1AM, you should NOT be screaming. This is NOT necessary. WTF are you doing?! KEEP IT DOWN! THERE ARE QUIET HOURS AND THEY START AT 11!



Dear Idiots Who Work Financial Aid,

The ball has been in your court since last week. I did my part. NOW ITS TIME TO DO YOURS SO PLEASE DO BECAUSE YOU WON'T BE GETTING ANYMORE OF MY MONEY SINCE YOU ALREADY SCREWED ME OVER WITH THE BANK. YOU SUCK.



Dear Astoria Federal Savings Bank,

-111???????!!!!!! WHAT?! HOW!? WHY?!



---

Dear Registrar,

THANK YOU FOR BEING THE ONLY PEOPLE TO GET SOMETHING RIGHT! MY SCHEDULE IS FINALLY PERFECT. ILU.


Dear Mother Nature,

Plz to be keeping with this snowing business. It is pretty to look at and may lead to a snow day if you like us enough. KTHNXBAI.


---

So... yeah. This week so far has been interesting. If the hallway smells like pot again tomorrow night, I'm going to the RA, because this is ridiculous. I thought that maybe it was a one time thing last night but WTF. Grrargh.

But in good news, my schedule is finally purrrrrfect. 6 credits for my research project (3-4 hours of lab work a day, probably in the morning, once we get set up... w00t???), Child Psych (T/Th 12:30-2), and Abnormal Psych (T 5:45PM-8:30). And I finally got my work study schedule set up for the semester, 2-5 Mon-Thurs, so a nice solid 12 hours a week. It may not seem like much, but considering 20 is the limit, and its all I can fit in my schedule, its good enough for me.

All I need is my financial aid to finally go through, and I'll be set...

After seeing this on someone else's LJ and seeing that others have had the same issue, I figured I would post a warning.

When I signed onto IM, I got a message simply stating "Someone has posted your friend's only messages here" with the following link.

DO NOT under any circumstances click the link

I'm just posting it here so you all see what it looks like. I put spaces in it just to make sure.

http : / / jacyevans . on . nimp . org / ? u = bantown

Apparently, this is a bot that is going around, and multiple people have gotten the link in an IM. It would have your livejournal name. If you click, you will end up at a site that will cause a massive amount of applications to open and bad porn to keep popping up until you figure out how to stop it. I had to restart and am now running a virus scan just to be safe.

Just wanted to let you guys know this is going around and to be careful.
