I can't quite see the goal of that con, but props for trying to figure it out/fuck with them. At this point I'm apparently the go-to "Is this a scam?" guy for my entire fucking extended family on my mother's side, so I think I've seen most of them at this point. "He sent a cashier's check." "The check is fake." "But the bank took it!" "Yeah, and they'll un-take it in a couple weeks. Just don't give anybody any fucking money, alright?" On the plus side, I don't get any of this shit from my dad's side. They were all raised in the carny.

Related: the fuck-knuckle who told me my phone was disconnected once again E-Mailed me to tell me my phone was disconnected. I responded, hey guy, you know this is the third time you've sent me an E-Mail with that same lie at the top, right? Does everybody at your company do that, or is it just you, and can you please give me your supervisor's contact information so I can continue this conversation with him?

Unsurprisingly, he went quiet again. So I sent a message to the E-Mail on the company's contact page to ask the same question.

Likeliest outcome is, of course, that I'll never hear back from anybody, until he sends me the same E-Mail again around November. At which point I think I'll probably be all out of ethical objections to just putting his full name and E-Mail address in my blog post.

My friend went to a 70's/80's dance bar that has actual car wash rollers installed for when they play Car Wash.

Also this bar was fucking nuts. Among the many weird things that they had, was that there was three of those "spinny" car wash towel things (one on each side of the dance floor and one on the ceiling). Obviously, they play the car wash song and all three moved out from their positions to be closer to everyone and then some kind of bubble machines just made an absolute shitton of bubbles and dumped them onto the ceiling thing which then just flung bubbles everywhere (like covered the dance area, but also just flung them to like every corner of the bar).

Seen yesterday in my neighbourhood: a tradesman van with "Manos: the Handyman" emblazoned on the side.

Our neighbourhood isn't that bad, as things go, but today I saw a shopping trolley with no wheels up on blocks at the side of the road.

Another fun sighting from the streets of Toronto: A massive old 80's land shark being driven by (of course) a little old lady. With plates that read '2 R MEME'.

Today at work I am dressed up as Princess Daisy for Halloween. In case you don't know on regular days I wear lolita fashion. Scene is set.

A regular delivery guy came in to drop something off. First he laughed at my costume and said he'd been afraid I'd be wearing a white blouse and pleated skirt and saddle shoes. (???) Then he said he'd brought me a Halloween treat, and gave me a Lego guy. He told me it is a Steampunk Policeman (it is a regular policeman).

Accidentally broke my "ain't doing shit for Halloween" streak. Turns out a burgundy motorcycle jacket, satchel, and two day beard is very easily mistaken for a Star Lord costume. Kind of like how I've never cosplayed in my life, but still showed up in an anime convention photo gallery as "Lupin."

Today I had to extract a hair from my chin because it was bothering me. Why? Because it was over half a millimetre thick.

I'm unsure if it's good or bad that my facial hair is SO DARNED MANLY that it's starting to cross the line from "hair" to "horns".

You need to keep that in a jar and charge two bits a gander.

I just noticed a glob of peanut butter on top of my modem.

I wish I had more details than that.
