Ya know how LJ has that absolutely useless feature "inside LJ" now? One of issues is the China/Tibet thing? (Communist slash, woot... Yes, bad joke, I know, you'll get over it.)

Apparently they don't even WARN the people they're featuring. One of the more controversial posts listed there now sends you to a rickroll, as she was apparently getting flamed for it; if you read a few of her other entries, you'll see that she had to figure out why she was getting so much traffic.

I hope to god LJ doesn't do that shit to me. I doubt that would happen, as I rarely have anything intelligent to say, let alone when what I have to say is CONTROVERSIAL... but still. I'd rather not advertise my stupidititity.

Work sucked today and I don't even know why.

I'm taking off on Thursday. Calvin is getting eight teeth pulled on Wednesday. He's going to have Novocain for most of the evening and they're probably going to give him hydrocodone or codeine or some thing along those lines that'll help him sleep. But honestly? He's an XY male, he's going to be absolutely fucking helpless the next day. Plus, I'd rather be there to tell him "DON'T DO THAT" when he tries to eat pizza or something, and I KNOW he's going to.

Speaking of dental issues, it seems my lower right wisdom tooth is coming in. Now, my atrocious dental hygiene prevented problems when the upper teeth came through, because both of the upper back molars had already been pulled. I still have both of the lower back molars, though.

I hope to god it's just irritation from something. Because if that's REALLY a wisdom tooth coming in, I'm in for all kinds of pain. And NOT the good kind.

I have...

... a cold sore at the very back of my throat. Dr. Hanley isn't as loose with the script pad as Dr. Costa is, though, so I'm going to have to wait for it to heal (or go back next month: Heh, yeah, it's still there and still hurting...). Dr. Costa gave me an antiviral last year when this happened. Dr. Hanley, however, just gave me an antibiotic in case it's bacterial, and not viral.

It's viral. I know it is, because it's almost exactly the same as last year. But I'm taking the antibiotic anyway. I HATE it when doctors give me long courses of antibiotics. Because when I get a bladder infection, they give me these 15-day antibiotic courses, and I stop hurting after 5. When you have the attention span I do, it gets REALLY hard to remember to take that shit. I've had a low-grade bladder infection for MONTHS at a time, because it would get painful and bloody, and they'd give me 15 days of antibiotics, and I'd take 7 days worth, and the infection would hang around just below the surface- not really causing MUCH discomfort, but CERTAINLY letting me know that it's still there.

Well, I never finished the antibiotics from the bladder infection when I had gastritis in February. I sent Cal out to get me cranberry juice last night. Yes, I'm taking the Z-pack. It's FIVE DAYS. JUST the way I FUCKING like it.

And now... ugh. I want to stay up and do the paper that's already 2 days late, but you know what? I'm exhausted, my throat and ears hurt, and I want to go to bed.

Oh, and I have an Emerald on Treasure Trooper now. Woot woot! Doesn't do anything but look pretty, far as I can tell, though...

Cramps aren't as bad today, but my throat is KILLING ME. I have a fever and I can barely swallow. The pain's in my ear now, too.

People have such a sense of entitlement. Someone on Treasure Trooper is bitching because they reversed referral earnings because one of the referrals was caught giving fraudulent information. Even though TT's payment for those offers were reversed, this woman thinks it's bad business ethics to reverse HER "earnings" too, since she had nothing to do with it and it came from a "purchased" referral anyway.

First, if TT paid referral earning for fraudulent activity EVEN THOUGH they aren't getting paid for it themselves, it would probably bankrupt them in a month. The problem with GPT sites, I've discovered, aren't that the sites are scams, but that MANY users attempt to scam THEM.

Second, it's NOT bad business ethics. There is NO business ethic that says a company is obligated to violate their own terms of service for you. When you sign up, you agree that TT isn't obligated to pay you ANY referral "earnings".

Finally, when you "purchase" (IE earn the 8 pearls you need to be able to get two unrefereed members, which you get from bonus games ONLY) referrals, they are random people who signed up without a referral. TT doesn't register accounts and do offers to give you referral earnings and they can't be held responsible for the referral not doin' it right.

In other words, here's a tissue: cry moar. It's nice that you've gotten even $13 from pearl referrals; I have 12 pearl reffies and don't even have $3 from them. Stop whining about it. It's money you didn't have to do jack shit for.
