A copy of my letter to Sprint. NEVER EVER EVER EVER GET SPRINT!
You guys charge me every month for a network that doesn't work. There are a select few places in town where I can make a call without it being dropped. Even then there's a lot of "Can you hear me now?". You sent me a signal booster, but it doesn't work. Still I am forced to pay $94-$96 every month for no service. You say it will cost me $400 to break the contract and go to another company. In light of the situation, I think that fee should be waved. I have chatted with customer care SEVERAL times. I have called on the few occasions that my phone worked. No one has helped remotely. I have sent in a formal complaint to the BBB. I have tried to get into contact with lawyers. I have paid you for almost zero service for 8 months. I just received another bill from you. Please tell me why I should pay it? Tell me why I should pay to continue to be imprisoned by you?
[On a side note: I have talked to several former victims. This is common service and common practice. The people I talked to talk about the day they were released from their contract like it was the day they were released from prison.]
I never understood what you were going through. Now I do. Oh, boy do I.
I haven't been posting much about my shows. (I haven't been using livejournal very much at all lately, actually) So let me take some time now to tell you about my Legend of Korra feels (CUZ I HAVE SOME FEELS, MAN) I didn't really care one way or the other about the ships in ATLA. So before the episode "The Spirit of Competition" aired, I thought I would be blase about the LOK ships too and that if I shipped anything, I would ship Makkorra. WRONG! Let me tell you about Borra. Bolin and Korra are PERFECT for each other. Bolin is so nice and funny and really appreciates all the things that really matter about Korra. My Borra feels are so STRONG and everything since that episode has just been Makkorra, Makkorra, Makkorra. Bolin is even getting less lines and screentime. I just feel like they have more chemistry. I know Makkora is what canon is gonna stick with and I respect the people who ship it, but I am just curl-up-and-cry-on-the-floor about Borra and Bolin.
The last THREE episodes of Russell Howard's Good News have been compilation shows and I just know the finale next week is going to be one too. What gives, Russell? Are you ill? Does it have something to do with the Olympics?

"If in 100 years I am only known as the man who invented Sherlock Holmes then I will have considered my life a failure." - ACD (one of many quotes of his extreme distaste for Holmes)
I am so posthumously sick of your whining, ACD! You created an amazing character, perhaps the world’s most beloved. You wrote mysteries and puzzles that it took real intelligence to conjure up. You drew us into one of the most beautiful friendships fiction has ever seen. You captured hearts, inspired real detectives, and changed lives. If you consider that a failure, then fuck you, dude. I’ve seen countless interviews and quotes where you piss and moan about how much you hate writing Holmes, you hate to be known for that. I hope you can see this from beyond the grave, because if you were alive I’d find you and chew you out. You changed the entire fucking world for the better, so man the fuck up and be grateful that people love something you made!
My boss finally let me go today. Can't say I didn't see it coming. His form of motivation was letting everyone know that they could be fired at any second every day. You know that scene in the second episode of the IT Crowd where Denim is holing the balloon that says "Jen's peace of mind" on it and is going "Are you stressed now?! What about now?!" and if the stress meter goes up he'll fire her? That was basically my job, and I suffered from severe panic attacks because of it. I'm upset that I have no income and can't move to that place in Redondo and I have to go up and stay with my dad, but to be honest, I'm a little relieved that I'm free to search for a job that won't give me a heart attack.
Another 5 star review on Amazon. Karakalou writes: I LOVE THIS BOOK! I bought this book on Friday and finished mid-day Saturday... The book is written so visually, it was like a memory of my own somehow. The fine line between reality and magic was deftly walked by an expert craftsman. I feel like I've just walked out of an epic film! My heart was pounding, I gasped out loud, what a fun read!! Looking forward to anything from this author.
And someone wrote this on the Facebook page: I've read your book and it's a wonderful first novel. For the most part I felt like I was there. Last night I had a dream I was on one of the ships! Loved the ending and I hope there is a book two.
Again, the paperback is available HERE and the Kindle HERE
