This has the potential, they just need the funds to make it so.

Here is the link to donate if you are so inclined.

This week is off to a fantastic start.

67 kids and 12 faculty and staff out today with pink eye. I kid you not, nearly a fourth of the school and almost half of the staff.  It's an epidemic.

Guess who's eyeballs now feel like tiny balls of fire?

Screw you Monday and Tuesday. Nobody likes you anyway.
Fuck you.

If I could find you and beat you within an inch of your worthless, thieving life I would happily do so. Not only did you cause my primary checking account to become overdrawn with your nearly 1400 dollar online spending spree, but you have cost me around 200 additional dollars for my replacement debit cards, checks, and overdraft charges.

Whoever this person is, they somehow managed to gain access to my personal bank account routing number and they made a grand total of 16 fraudulent charges over the span of an hour an fourteen minutes:

  • $290.05 at Kohl’s (9 charges total)

  • $615.78 at Best Buy (1 single charge)

  • $117.83 at (1 single charge) Really? REALLY?

  • $243.61 at Gap (3 charges)

  • $32.64 at Amazon (2 charges)

This situation was not discovered by the bank, but rather the hubby who checks the bank accounts daily. They had no idea. I checked my phone around noon to find 12 missed calls from him and two from the bank. I called the bank and had a rather terse conversation with the bookkeeper, who kept asking me if I was sure I didn’t make the charges. The charges were made in California, Ohio, Montana, and Maine, but still she felt to the need to ask me more than once if I was sure.

My head nearly popped off when she told me, that if I provided false information on the reimbursement form, my account would be subject to termination and I would be responsible for paying the overdrafts and a substantial fine to the bank. (By substantial I mean double the overdraft charge.)

After that delightful conversation I asked her about getting new debit cards and checks to be completely safe, and she said where an investigation is currently taking place it could be anywhere from one business week to a solid month before we receive our replacements.

Screw that.

We have bills to pay, gas to buy to get back and forth to work, and groceries that must be bought. We can’t afford to have our account frozen until the bank decides the investigation is over.

Needless to say, we are in the process of looking for a new bank, preferably one with better customer service (I left work early to sign the forms because the main branch closes at 1:15 every day. When I got there, the forms, which were supposed to be faxed to a closer branch near my work, were not there as they said they would be, and what should have taken 30 minutes ended up being 3 hours).

I could have done without today.

Please don’t let the door hit you on the way out…on second thought, please do. Hard.

Wishing the f-list a splendid new year and many happy blessings!

Oh my goodness! teddyradiator, you are simply fantastic! I couldn't be happier with the gifts from our mutual “friend.” It is something I’ll cherish for a very long time indeed! They are so stinking cute, and they're already on the tree!

It’s the annoying blathering sound of those who have decided my personal and private decisions are fair game for public discussion.

On the plus side, when people drag my name through the mud I tend to forget about it by looking at Snape. You fine people of my f-list can share in the spoils: Here, here, here, here, here, and here!

I only just found this today. For a fan-made video it is surprisingly good, and adds some perspective on the Dumbledore/Grindelwald feud. I just thought I'd share for those interested.

I have pretty much been absent from the LiveJournal scene for the last month. I cannot believe it is already December!  It has been busy between Thanksgiving and preparing for Christmas, but I've finally managed to pull the tree from storage. We decided to forgo the traditional ornaments we always use and do something a little bit differently.

I thought you lot would appreciate this especially....

For those of you who have participated in the previous rounds of NaNoWriMo, where did you get the nifty little word counters for your LiveJournal pages? I remember some of you saying your counters reset for the 2013 round in previous posts, but I can't seem to find where to get my own little word counter.

This being my first round and all, I'm a wee bit overwhelmed with my daily target goal. I'm a wee bit overwhelmed by the prospect of it all, really.
