Our landlord soaked my tv and DVD player in water. The DVD player was covered in water. Every part of it, bottom to front to sides had water and apparently the water even poured out of it. The tv wasn't as bad but it still got wet in the worst place for it to get wet and has water places I can't reach to dry off. If either of those got broken which my dvd player probably is I am going to make her pay to replace them and that is completely non negotiable, especially considering the dvd is mine and not a family possession.

I'm just really glad I bought a tv for my room and moved my ps4 in there or I'd be about to throw hands.

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
Just when I was trying to get back into Person of Interest, Netflix announces that they're taking the show off in 2 days.

This is really my fault since I've had all quarantine to finish the series, but...LEMME COMPLAIN DAMMIT

Apparently I have AAA and AAAA batteries to last for years, but not a single AA in my battery stash. And of course my AA-powered mouse dies on me without even a low battery warning...

Despite loving the outdoors, the Neb Pokémon has more introverted hobbies. As a result it has a socially awkward temperament.
I bought an affordable copy of a PS1 game, but it looks super blurry on my HD TV. If only my CRT wasn't in storage...

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also a huge fan of Smash Bros. and writing.
My laptop is BSODing with some nonsensical error code every so often. Luckily I haven't really lost any work or anything, but it's really annoying, especially since I don't know why...

Also I think I'm getting an ingrown toenail again :cybercrime:

My old headphones are completely dead, but my new ones aren't here yet - even though they're technically just down the street waiting to be loaded onto a delivery truck. FedEx has apparently decided my package is "not eligible for early delivery". So even though it arrived at 2am last night to the local hub, it didn't go out because it's "scheduled" for tomorrow. Furthermore, I can't pick it up myself because the seller has placed "restrictions" on the shipment. Seriously?!...

With my luck they probably won't show up until like 8pm tomorrow, too.

Edit: they in fact showed up at 9:30pm. Thanks, FedEx. This is why I never purposely use your services for residential deliveries.

This ghost studies constantly and wishes that they had more energy for creative projects. They would love to cuddle every adorable cat in the world.
love my uni, two days before i move back into it, making me responsible for the COVID testing and organisation of that for people in (potentially) multiple accommodation blocks/"households" as well as my own. they appointed me as a "lead" w/o my consent or knowledge, and cced all others in my "household" to let them know i have this responsibility. i've had to say why i'm not in a position to carry out those tasks to a stranger in an attempt to get the weight taken off, so others in my household will also soon know that i'm someone who had to ditch a task. i'm legit just an undergrad - with a lot of mh problems which prevent me from doing things at points - and i do not cope well with large and very unexpected things like what the uni's just said.

my uni has made me cry many, many, many times over the years but i can't recall it making me cry before the year even started

edit; thankfully it turns out i'm not even the "lead" they cced the "Dear Lead" email to everyone but didn't say who the "lead" was, 10/10 emailing here ;p but at least it's a relief

I just discovered that writting two essays on the same week can do a number to your mental health, because I´ve been feeling like garbage ever since I finished both the assigments.

I'm on an unavoidable road trip with both my cats to go stay with family (as our landlord insisted in moving back into the house and is not being even remotely safe) and I got altitude sickness yesterday and am still suffering from the effects. (Mostly in the form of mild nausea, but Nausea and stomach pain is my one true weakness I cannot take.) I can safely say that I hate altitude sickness and never want to experience it again.

I like your Sakurai, but not your players. Your players are so unlike your Sakurai.
I found that the .NET capabilities of PKHeX were broken after a PC update I had earlier today. For context, I found the "NET v4.0.30319" error after opening PKHeX while I was doing my Egglocke.

I panicked and uninstalled anything I had with "Microsoft .NET" and tried to reinstall .NET Framework 4.6.1 and onward, but no dice. I have some knowledge about PCs here, but I'm hopeless with trying to get .NET working again!

Does anyone else have that annoying problem where you get an email saying that your package has arrived and then you go to check and they delivered it to the wrong house? Because that happened today and the stuff I ordered is heavy.

This. Or sometimes:
"
Hi mewstein,
Your parcel has been posted through your letterbox.
How was your delivery?
"

Lies, damn lies! He left it on my doorstep where it could've got nicked or rained on... or both.

Today's FWP is that turning on my amp causes my internet connection to die. F-ing magnets, how do they work?

I just dropped a brand new, unopened bottle of sesame oil and it shattered. $15 gone, just like that, plus now my kitchen floor smells like a chinese takeout store.

Guess I'm off to buy another bottle.

I need to get my immunization records to sign up for classes for next semester. But my doctor's office either didn't get my request or is super dragging their feet.
