I've kept in touch with the other residents of my apartment complex about the BedBug Problem. It was the prudent thing to do since I also warned them that I had found them. Last month they finally got their chemical treatments, from a company different than the one I hired and didn't have to pay for the treatments.

Yesterday I emailed the landlord to ask if I could have some of my pest control bill compensated and recieved this fine email in response, along with a 5 day notice.


To say I'm pissed would be a severe understatement. Also terrified and exhausted enough as it is and I think this landlord is a shitfucker. If I'm lucky he doesn't know what dreamwidth is but it needs to be said. I'm not stupid enough to say it on facebook.

Six inches of snow outside, unplowed and I need to get groceries.

MEH I say, MEH.

Some friends have surprised me.

Due to travelling plan changes, if I can get to Sheboygan Friday I can go to the Time Lord's Ball with them.

One of them is paying for my ticket to the Ball iteself, so I need to update the punk vest and make sure I have my good clothes ready! And ofcourse good dancing shoes.

I got the best kind of surprise in my mailbox today. It smells fabulous and I can make my own hot cocoa~

...just as soon as Louie finishes sniffing and rubbing on the bay leaves.

...Okay, sir, seriously do not post physical descriptions in your ad. I don't care if rent is $200 a month for that room, you're fucking creepy as shit.
crazyfurries: (plush bug)
So, apparently I overpaid for the bed bug treatment services and I'm getting a check sent BACK to me in the mail. Whoo. $250.

Bad news, the car I purchased in fricking AUGUST has shown signs of wonky steering and a heater that doesn't work. This news came after the 10 calls from my aunt as she drove it down to Chicago for her doctor's appointment. The calls started at 6 am, and around 10 am, she called to inform me that she wanted to meet up in Oshkosh, which was a much harder ordeal than she anticipated. I don't think she remembered that I have to walk a mile to the nearest bus stop (30 minutes if I walk there FAST, and there are icy sidewalks. Hahaha, NO.) and I need to take two different buses to get to the nearest 24hr breakfast place (again 30-45 minutes, even when things aren't icy as shit).

I'm tired, still cold from the walk home, and hungry. The only thing I got done for work (because navigating the bus adds at least 3-4 hrs of travel time to any expedition) was some milk for groceries and printing off the paperwork needed to deal with some of Mom's retirement accounts from the library.

I either want to bite someone's face off or scream, and I have the energy for neither activity.

Well, looks like I'm NOT the only tenant who has had to deal with the bedbug problem. Every apartment on the second floor of this building has gotten treated, but I don't know about the first floor. I'm getting the hell out of here somehow.

Edit: Camwyn has great macro-fu

Sekhmet's blistering gaze, Brain! Could we get with the freaking program on adding items to etsy? The income is needed and I know it's a lot of pressure, but think of something, otherwise I'm going to pull an Ursula Vernon and start naming everything the BOB PATCHES AND RANDOM BOB PATCHES. Ain't nobody wanting that nonsense.

Finances are in the dire straights and since a regular wage job won't be likely until January. I'd really like to keep surviving, and even if funds go poo, I'm going to need $$ to move to a cheaper place.

Of course MORE things have come up, raising my goals for funds yet again. Here goes!

Banging the Tin Can


$1 per card, max 7 card spread

I'll do a personal reading for you based on your question or request, drawing from the Brian Froud Fairie Oracle deck.


$5 For a Sketch

$10 For Brush-inked

$20 For Basic Coloring


$5 Single-color simple 3-inch patch on denim or Felt. Simple, as in simple shape, symbol or sigil if you like magical workings. If you would like a phrase or a prayer, please keep it under 20 characters for legibility's sake. $5 for each extra color. 50 slots available

$10 Single Color simple 5-inch patch on denim or Felt. Simple, as in simple shape, symbol or sigil if you like magical workings, though at this size you get more leeway. If you would like a phrase or a prayer, please keep it under 35 characters for legibility's sake. $7 for each extra color. 20 slots available

$25 Doodle-patch grab-bag. You get three patches, most of which will be 3 inches, unhemmed, and very, very random with multiple colors, various stitches and fabrics. There will be some larger ones and some slightly smaller hemmed ones, as well as the chance to score a velvet patch. There is a limited supply of these, and once they are gone it's going to be a while before the pool fills again. Only 9 of these currently available.

$50 Customized Punk Vest. Comes with two 3 inch patches, or your choice of back logo in one color. $10 for each extra color. No real limits on letters or symbols, if you wanna go big, go here. Vests will be cannibalized from Thrift Stores, sterlized and re-shaped. This one will need body dimensions to make sure it fits. 5 slots available

$100 3 color, 12x8 Biker patch, on denim only. $25 for each extra color, price includes my designing the patch's layout and shape. 5 slots available

$400 The unbelieveable dream. I will do a wonderous Wall hanging for you 18 inches wide and at least three feet long on denim (or your preferred fabric. I can make a visit to a store for this). You choose the subject matter, and medium is the only limit. This will take minimum of three weeks to create. =ONLY= 3 slots available

First goal: $550!I will write each backer a haiku or limerick based on their personal choice of subject matter. Because it is the least I can do for anyone who has helped me pay medical bills, dental bill, put food on my table and gas in my tank.

Second Stretch Goal: $800 If this goal is met, every backer/supporter will recieve a metallic sigil ATC card along with their purchase! Because at this level, I can afford better eats and kitty treats for my therapy cat, along with everything else. AND NOT BE BROKE AT YULIMAS! Or perhaps the costs of moving out of this leeching apartment.

Estimated delivery dates for any backings above $25 will be in January-March 2015, because between holidays and many other things, time will be at a premium.

The job-hunt has been entirely unsuccessful and according to several of the places I have applied, I would have better luck trying again in the New Year. Seeing as that's a month away, it's the Yulmas season, and after checks for my rent and utilities go through tomorrow I will have $9 left in my checking account.

I still need to pay for the final bedbug check-over ($150) and make it through this month and into the next. The office has a security deposit for 3 months rent, which I will be asking about tomorrow. I don't know what it'd take to get me through this month seeing as I need to go to the psychiatrist ($75 and up for an appt) to get insomnia medication still.

I still have things to deal with from mom's will and savings accounts, but those take time and energy. Given that I've only got time with no job currently, it's more a matter of energy and understanding legal puuduu.


So. What I've got is a bunch of blank ATC cards, denim, felt, hand embroidery tools, and a deck of Faerie Oracle cards.

Trying to figure out reasonable pricing won't be too difficult, and I think that a $450 1st goal is not too shabby. Stretch goals might be in the $700 range and we'll just keep going up from there.

Galdang I am so tired right now.

I love you so much.

you cuddle up to me when I am feeling down.

however, I have just discovered where you've been peeing that isn't the litterbox.

The last of my clean laundry.

I'm replacing the litter and if this doesn't stop after that, we've got vet bills incoming.
crazyfurries: (doom)
Cam? How much trouble would you say it'd be to immigrate to Canada? Really, REALLY sick of American Politicians. Also the healthcare, police, and my GODDAMN NEIGHBORS.
crazyfurries: (omgyay)
The exterminators have sprayed my apartment AND gotten my mattress into an encasement to prevent more bedbug issues. In two weeks they will visit again to spray for the newly hatched nymphs and such, finishing the cycle by spraying again a week from now. WOOOOOOT.

crazyfurries: a cranky abbysinnian kitten (Default)
Okay, so walking a mile to the laundromat to sterlize a bag of clothes yesterday was apparently a little bit too much exercise for my. Considering how my body is currently swearing at me, I will be asking family for rides to the laundromat in the future.
crazyfurries: (real life)
Yesterday I got the inspection scheduled for my apartment. The examination with trained beagle comes tomorrow morning, so today I've got to try contacting the Tenant Rights group of Wisconsin.

Edit: just called, left a message on their machine, and have no idea how to navigate the phone tree at the clerks office.

Calling to report scares me but it must be done...

Anyone know who might be the ones to call?
crazyfurries: (doom)
I reported the finding and biting from a bedbug infestation on Monday. Thursday a pest control company was spraying the eaves of the roofs for all of the buildings in the complex. I kind of doubt such an ineffective method was the response from the work-order and Managerial Staff, but I can't reach them for comment until Monday.

I'm really, really sick of how fucked up everything is right now.

If I don't get a response next week, I'm going to have to take some drastic measures. Plastic bagging every article of clothing, tin-foiling all of my books, and bleach scrubbing anything else that is water-proof but not heat-resistant. And calling my own damn exterminator.

If it comes to that I'll have to beg, but the orders will be on a sterilization hold. Once all fabric and floss get the all clear, I'd be starting work. Which'd be a huge freaking delay.
crazyfurries: a cranky abbysinnian kitten (Default)
Or maybe not enough, because haven't updated this in a while. August was too much fun of a month, where for three weeks I was struggling to get internet, got into a car crash, and dealt with getting the apartment into my name, along with the bills.

The first only relates to the rest in the sense that I was unable to communicate during the exact moments of these things taking place.

As far as the car crash goes, I didn't hit anybody else's car. I passed out at the wheel for half a second on a twisty bit of resort road and hit a tree. I know I'm lucky to be alive, even if I'm still recovering from that. Many thanks go to Camwyn, for sending me the much-needed and still in use re-useable ice packs. Recovery is fun.

However, for the past two weeks I've been getting random bug bites showing up on my arms and legs. At first I attributed them to mosquitoes, having to walk or ride everywhere does tend to increase your exposure to the less savory aspects of the outdoors. Especially in summer, when it's hot and muggy and all the insects are fucking hatching left and right.

However...lately I've noticed new ones showing up in the morning. Little red itchy clusters of different bites, grouped together. Just a few moments ago, I found an odd bug crawling off of me and squashed it.

I should not find red in a squashed bug. Finding that sort of bug in my bedroom, several hours after I've been outside, is rather alarming, especially given that it wasn't shaped at all like a tick.

I know that I should not Google things at 2-oh-fuck-you-clock in the morning.

I think I've got bedbugs.


How the fsck did I get bedbugs???
crazyfurries: (brainfart)
I'm hoping, that in this fair little exercise, that by writing down these little annoying questions which can keep me up til dawn pondering. I may stave them off until I am rested, sane and perhaps more capable of reasoning them out than at 3 o-bloody-fuckass-clock in the morning. Hopefully, when I wake UP tomorrow I'll also remember that these questions were running amok in my head like feral notions sprouted off of the Ursula Vernon story collection I read today.

This is what my brain does when I worry too damn much about something. Hoping this staves off another 'pickle theory' night.

when did we start using packaged yeast and how is it made?

How does one make a sourdough starter from wild grapes? (this one inspired by Mushi-shi and my boss at work)

What other sugar-bearing plant-derived substances might also contain wild yeasts suitable for fermentations that could create food? What if they were magical in nature? (Note: Ursula has DONE the narcotic peach. I am not her, and I shall not crib notes on peaches at any rate)

I'm going to be without internet for a few days, as the roommates who had their own service are cancelling it. Seeing as they've moved out recently, I can not really blame em, I wouldn't want to pay for service in two areas either. Especially for crappy service.

Tuesday is when my AT&T internet is supposed to arrive... we'll see how I'll fare until then.
crazyfurries: (real life)
Step 1: Have her roommates moving out the same weekend as a friend's wedding at the Ren Faire.

Step 2: Contract the 'summer cold bug' through unknown sources at the beginning of the week

Step 3: Forget that the Experimental Aircraft Association, located roughly a little less than a mile down the road, is having their convention/celebration the entire week

Step 4: Allow for the workplace to run out of pasta not once, but twice.

Step 5: Don't forget to stop at the storage barn to organize what must be brought to the apartment only to find out someone either forgot to bring my cooking supplies from the former residence, or one of my brothers scarpered off with a large bin of all of my extra cooking tools.

Step 6: Go to the Ren Faire Wedding and be reminded how very much I loathe crowds as it seems to be on double the intensity it was last week. Also, small screaming children.

Step 7: Come back from hellishly long drive to wedding, only to find apartment mostly bare as roommates have moved most of their stuff out, and proceed to have a panic attack as I realize they crammed all of the stuff from the Barn into my room, preventing immediate touchdown into bed.

Tomorrow will be a day of contacting AT&T to start internet service with them, as by next week Saturday the service with Time Warner's asshole will be severed. Also finding furniture.
