So I wake up and find that Yahoo! Mail has changed their interface. Fine. Have your ridiculous flickr/Tumblr screens; I'll try a sunset for half an hour before I realise it's bloody ridiculous and pick black. I don't actually hate change. Sure, you clearly don't expect anyone to actually use filters for folders, so they're all hidden away where I can't just see them down the side. Whatever. BUT PLEASE DEAR GODS OF YAHOO FIX THE BLOODY SCREEN WIDTH BECAUSE I CAN'T BEAR IT ALL THIS BLOODY DEADSPACE ON THE RIGHT OF THE SCREEN WITH ALL THE CONTENT ALIGNED LEFT!!!! I EVEN TURNED ADS BACK ON JUST TO CHECK WHETHER MAYBE THAT WOULD GIVE ME MORE OF MY RESOLUTION BACK, BUT IT DIDN'T AND EVERYTHING IS SQUISHED AND IT MAKES MY SKIN CRAWL AND YOU CAN'T SCROLL DOWN EVEN THOUGH THE CONTENT HITS THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN; NO, YOU CAN ONLY SCROLL INTERNALLY WITH YOUR CURSOR IN THE RIGHT PLACE AND THERE IS NO RELIEF FROM THE UNRELENTING ASSAULT ON WHATEVER THE DESKTOP TOOLBAR IS CALLED... I'M FILLED WITH SO MUCH WEBDESIGN RAGE AND IT SHOULDN'T BE HARD! IT SHOULDN'T BE HARD.

So now my day is ruined and I'm going to be filled with impotent rage every time I check my email. Woohoo. I suppose the only silver lining might be if it works on my mini laptop. Because it does look nice-ish on all the press release screencaps. But I have a widescreen monitor so I can see shit! Not stare at ugly gaps!!!

FFS, I told myself last night that I wasn't allowed to think about this, but... I can't believe it's been ten years - ten years - and people are still demonising and threatening people who dare:

1. Read Smashed in a way that Buffy is not a victim.
2. Analyse Buffy/Spike on its own individual basis of a relationship between two characters in a fantasy world rather than something solely contextualised by impersonal sociological narratives.
3. Suggest that they find Spuffy hot.

And the whole thing's been brought about by someone who operates on the assumption that we're all dense enough to believe that he 'forgot' he knew about SR when he started shouting at people for having different views about Smashed.

I'm so angry.

All I've got is my video which I like to think indicates that Spike's sarcasm vs. Buffy's violence has been their game for a long time:



Tell me they both fuck up in S6, but don't tell me either is fully taking control.

Chere Residence,

Je suis tres en colere. Toujours je vais a l'accueil et toujours je demande a faire ce que vous avez declare necessaire et toujours ce n'est pas possible. J'ai demande mercredi quand est-ce possible a faire mon etat des lieux (pour sortir car je vais partir assez tot samedi matin) et vous avez dit que je devais revenir vendredi matin pour organiser un rendez-vous. J'ai fait ca. Mais vous avez dit ce matin que ce n'etait pas possible a organiser un rendez-vous; je devais revenir cet apres-midi pour demander un animateur disponible. J'ai fait ca. Mais vous avez dit cet apres-midi qu'il n'y a pas un animateur disponible et il faut faire l'etat des lieux juste avant je pars. Assez tot dans le matin. Quand il n'y a personne a l'acceuil parce que c'est le petit-dejeuner ou quelquechose comme ca.

Je ne paie pas tout le loyer avant l'etat des lieux. Je n'ai pas l'argent pour payer toute la caution et tout le loyer avec toute la credit restauration obligatoire, que je n'ai pas utilise.

Peut-etre je ne paierai pas. Je vais essayer payer 180E maintenant, je pense. Il y aura ma cheque de caution pour la reste du loyer. Vous avez mon addresse. C'est possible a envoyer moi une addition s'il y a les autres charges.

Au revoir (j'espere pas)

Moi.
