Either that or it would be games and I know for a fact that my immediate family would go "You have enough games" or in the case of RPGs, "You have enough of that stuff and besides why get more stuff for games 'hardly anyone plays'?"
So whenever I DO make the rare request for birthday/Christmas guess what???? THEY NEVER BUY IT ANYWAY!!!!!!!!
I made the request a few Christmasses ago for Spirited Away and did say that it received a Grammy or Oscar or whatever thinking they would get it if they knew that it was good enough to get an award that "normal" movies get...but guess what? THEY DIDN'T GET IT!!! AND I HAD TO USE MONEY GRANDMA GAVE ME FOR CHRISTMAS TO GET IT WHICH IS BASICALLY THE SAME AS BUYING IT MY MALFING SELF!!!
So this year for my birthday I requested the Shinkai Collection and Princess Tutu volume 1..... I explained the best I can both of them to mom and my sister.... I even expected them that if they wanted to that they would go "halfsies" if they decide to go with the Shinkai Collection...
So a few weeks later the subject was brought up again and mom mentioned that she'd rather buy either locally rather than order online and pay S&H charge so we went to the mall to FYE store to see if they have a copy of either.
and I learn that they don't carry either one!!!
Then a few days later we go to Best Buy to see if they have it....THEY DON'T!!! Mom picked up volume 2 of Tutu and I'm like "Mom that would be like starting in the middle of the story."
So when the salesman that was helping me came back and said he couldn't find any in the backrooms, he gave us the phone number to a local anime store that has been advertising on radio and we called them....EVEN THEY DIDN'T HAVE EITHER ONE!! So mom ended up ordering and now two weeks later, and about 3-4 checkup calls later, including one when I talked to the manager.....
THEY KEEP ON TELLING ME/US THAT IT HASN'T CAME IN YET!!!
And mom....mom got fed up too, she extended her deadline to this week and if it hadn't came in then that's it she's going to spend her amount on clothes....
CLOTHES!!! FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!! AGAIN!!!!!
I AM MALFING SICK AND TIRED OF THIS S**T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MY BIRTHDAY SUCKS LIKE EVERY OTHER BIRTHDAY!!
And guess what? this is insult on top of injury since this week has been one of THE WORST I have had at work....heck my whole LIFE has been crapping out in my opinion. Ever since the breakup and (might as well throw a bone out to those that don't know) me wasting over $300 of my tax refund on a trip that didn't happen and Sherri dumping me at the same time and causing me to distrust her and stuff....
I have 1) been savagely LOSING at Magic the Gathering...never scoring even ONE match win, and in any of my 3 matches there would be ALWAYS ONE GAME WHERE I GET SLAUGHTERED WITHOUT EVEN SCORING A POINT AGAINST MY OPPONENT!!!!! HUMILIATING!!!!!!!!! I SUCK!!!!
2) At work things got so bad that they culminated into this past week when EVERY SINGLE MALFING DAY!!! I have had to stay AN HOUR AND A HALF LATER because we've been slammed so hard that I can't keep up and even when I DO have some help it's NEVER ENOUGH and I get out at a ridiculously late time!!!! I got so mad and upset at those stupid subhuman customers (and all of them are, and evil and greedy and impatient and gluttonous and....just NOT HUMAN!! THEY AREN'T HUMAN AND THEY DESERVE TO DIE!!!) that I come home and boot up Doom and imagine their faces on the monsters and I kill them all!!!
3) I forgot what this could be other than maybe include all the little mistakes like dropping things and stuff and a link to #2 in saying that I am starting to get into the Vs card game but yet knowing of my current record in the Magic tournaments that I would very likely SUCK at Vs too and lose terribly no matter how well I build my deck...
...just like Magic, no matter how well I try to build my deck, I'll never get into semis at the tournaments because I SUCK...I SUCK AT LIFE!! I should make a time machine and go back and make a temporal paradox of myself by somehow being there when I'm being delivered as a newborn baby and then taking the umbilical cord and abort myself!!!
However maybe I should be glad I can't do that because.....
....I just ordered both things on my wish list just now from Barnes and Noble!!
and I'm NOT going to accept clothes from mom....it may not be what I first want but if I knew beforehand that the first season of IGPX was coming out, I should have done things this way and have mom buy IGPX season 1 for my birthday!!
So now I'm going to do just that...have her buy it.
but my birthday still sucks in a way.
