SPOILER ALERT













who knew a cute funny cartoon about a red panda who likes death metal would wind up fucking with my head about John Lennon because she winds up almost getting murdered by a crazy fan?

They were selling Halloween/autumn decorations in the discount store earlier this morning and I saw a really weird looking one. It was a banner that had all these phrases on it that were associated with that time of year and one phrase that made no sense at all. "May Bides". What did that mean? May isn't even in the autumn unless you live in Australia or some other place in the southern hemisphere, which I don't. Can anyone explain this?

People who have some sort of issue against GLBT people are not welcome here on my LJ. Neither are people who condescend to me.
That out of the way anybody who's a big Edgar Allan Poe fan like I am should google the drawing Macabre Mansion. It's amazing!

Got paid because it's the 1st, should be getting the other payment day after tomorrow. Took care of dropping off my rent and paying one utility bill. I would have paid the telephone bill but I used up my last check and last time I was in this situation and tried paying the telephone bill online it took THREE WEEKS to process! I thought the whole point of paying bills online was it was supposed to be faster? I'm not too worried about it, the guy who works at my bank who I talked to yesterday said my new checks should be coming in in a couple of days, I'll pay the bill then.

I added a whole bunch of new peeps to my LJ friends list, usually when the friending frenzy things come up I only add a few but this time I added lots of them. I'm an extrovert and want lots of people to talk to, especially since I can't see my offline friends because of covid.
Anyway, welcome!
I had a really cool dream last night, I was on a cruise and swimming in the ship's pool and drinking a margarita and hanging out with Stephen Fry (and of course wondering where Hugh was, hehe).
Not much going on in my waking life, I had a cup of Yorkshire gold tea earlier this morning, did a little grocery shopping and called Netflix because some scammer pretending to be them claimed my account wasn't paid up (I knew it was, I took care of that two weeks ago!) and was trying to get my credit card number. I was all like, oh hell no, I'm not falling for this.
