My grand plan for today went something like this: go to the bookstore! return books for the class I dropped! take the money from that refund and buy GROCERIES OMIGOD FOOOOOOOOOD I MISSED YOU! go home and feel satisfied at a job well-accomplished!

I got through about half of that. The going to the bookstore and returning the books part went well! Only, you know, obviously when you paid for something using your debit card, the refund goes onto your card, too, not in cash of any sort. Which is not a problem!

Unless of course you are either very naive or very lacking in life experience. (I happen to be both.)

See, I assumed once they did that, the money actually EXISTED. It took me a bus ride across town, an hour of standing at the groceries staring longingly at food and checking my ATM every five minutes, and a phone call with my mother before I understood the truth. The truth, that money does not exist. That money does not belong to me. It is floating around somewhere in the void, and will continue to do so until my bank decides it's good and ready to acknowledge me, which will probably be, oh, several days.

SIGH.

[AHAHAHAHA FUNNY STORY. Apparently every time I checked my account balance, the ATM was ALSO charging me $1.50 I don't actually possess! Isn't that hilarious? Every other ATM I've ever used has charged for taking money out but not for just LOOKING, and has also given you that little screen of "hey, are you sure you want to spend this money?" I GUESS THIS ONE IS SPECIAL.]

On the list of ways that life DOESN'T totally fail, on the other hand, you should all know that I have had a tab open with this picture pretty much continuously since I posted those screencaps last night. Because they're BOYFRIENDS, okay. They are my pairing of Two Really Incredibly Nice Boys Who Love Each Other Without Any Sacrasm Or Really Any Edginess To Cut the Sap Whatsoever. In all fairness, it should be unbearable, but no. It's still pretty much just precious.

(Last night I stayed up way too late scouring the net for every bit of Ray/Gerard I could find. I'm not sure if it's actually possible, but there might be even less decent Ray/Gerard out there than decent Waycest. D: It's amazing how binging on badfic can bring on the same exact physical symptoms as binging on junk food, by the way.)

Oh, hey, do you any of you have a picture of Mikeyway from that one Fuse interview? Where he's laughing really hard at something and his face, seriously, pretty much just looks like this: XD ? Because I want to show my sister it, because the last time we talked she brought up Mikey looking like an anime character.

Which, ahahaha, reminds me, last email exchange we had was HILARIOUS. For context, she's not into bandom at all (except for Cobra Starship). She just puts up with me.

Subject: pete's tattoo

LA SOEUR: Explain to me why he would have this.

Photobucket

ME: ...Becaused he used to be way straightedge when he was in the hardcore scene in Chicago? And straightedge people get stupid tattoos?

LA SOEUR: haha. Oh dumbasses. I think that may be equal to getting a girlfriends name tattooed.

ME: you know, frank from my chem totally, among his eight billion other tattoos, totally has his fiancee's name.

http://whatthefrank.net/tattoos/jamia.jpg -- apparently it's written there with the heart. it used to be on his chest, too, but then he got a new giant chest tattoo that covered it up.

LA SOEUR: I already knew that. (shut up!) I don't know why I don't find that as pathetic. Or dumb.

Ahahaha. We all wonder that, really.

(This email from her is unique in that it doesn't mention Hemmy once. Seriously, she's obsessed with Pete's dog. It's kind of adorable.)

What's so great about that Gerard/Ray picture is that they're totally holding hands -- and Ray has his fingers closed over Gerard's tiny, tiny hand in a protective/semi-possessive way and Gerard's smile is saying this: glee! My bf loves me!

Your posts make me happy.

God, I've ALWAYS thought that about sxe tattoos. Like ... okay, fine, I guess the theory of sxe doesn't suck, but I have only met one person who lasted into adulthood as edge (and a handful who started as adults who are ex-addicts, which is a little different to me). And it's like ... yo, that shit is going to be EMBARRASSING when you're trying to order a beer in five years.

I don't mind the theory of edge, but most of the people I've known who held edge were fucking TOOLS. So I may be a little biased.

I think the thing about edge that always annoys me is that so many times, it's more than them refraining, it's that they're actively judging you for not being edge too.

That is an unfair comparison! The equivalent of Pete/Patrick in MCR is Frank/Gerard, and there's a fuckload of that!

My mission for this weekend is to write some non-sucky Ray/Gerard. I feel very strongly on the issue!

::twirls:: I WILL TAKE THAT CHANCE!

See, what I've been looking for? Is the Ray/Gerard story where it's not that Ray and Gee are totally oblivious to the utter hotness of everyone involved, it's that they both think it's never, ever going to work because, like, Ray thinks Gee only thinks of him as a friend and Gee thinks Ray turned him down which he totally did! Because Gee was a stumbling drunk at the time and Ray's just not that turned on by drool. Not even Gerard Way's drool.

So shenanigans ensue! Lots and lots of 'platonic' cuddling on couches which becomes all laden with sexual tension which leads to awkward conversational pauses and sudden retreats from the cuddling! Gee takes out his sexual frustrations onstage with Frank! Ray is confused and jealous! Mikeyway thinks everyone is an idiot and buys another hoodie for his cat, while Frank and Bob make bets on who'll crack first. Think of the misleading conversations! The almost, but not quite, non-platonic kissing! Gerard saying "Ray's just a really good friend" in wistful tones to bewildered interviewers who've mistakenly asked the leading question, 'What do you think of this weather we're having?'!

...Possibly, these thoughts cheer me in dark hours. You know. Maybe.

And straightedge people get stupid tattoos?

So I was dating this dude like 5 years ago, right, and he asked me to draw him a straightedge tattoo, so I did. Then we broke up. Then he emailed me like a month later asking if I cared if he still got the tattoo. I told him to do whatever the hell he wanted. So he got the tattoo. ON HIS CHEST NEAR HIS HEART. and he was off the wagon again like six months later! I PICK WINNERS.

Randomly Barnes & Noble around here returns debit as cash since it's pain in the ass to get the money to credit back to people's accounts. I didn't realize that debit could go back on a card.

I don't know why Frankie getting Jamia's name isn't sad or dumb! I think it's because he's a huge ridiculous rockstar and yet he's still with his highschool sweetheart. This is, what, 7 years down the road? I think they have staying power. So, you know. Go team Iero! \o/

Stupid banks! :[

Ahaha the XD Mikeyface!! Ohhh Mikeyyyyy. Whenever he shows emotion I pretty much die because he is TOO ADORABLE TO BE REAL. So clearly he's an anime character. <333

If I were dating Jamia, I'd get her name tattooed on me too! Especially after as many years as she's been with Frank. Also, like Pete, Frank has so many dumb tattoos that one more just isn't going to matter. I mean, Pete's got Ashlee's initial on him, and I'm betting he's got *something* for Jeanae. They just do not worry very much about these things.

Hi there. Okay, so normally a random comment from a totally strange stranger would be totally creepy, but I promise you this time it is not! I clicked on something that made me click on something else and suddenly I'm here at your journal? Nice to meet you by the way. I guess I assumed this post was going to contain a story of some sort which is why I read it, and I couldn't help but notice your Two Really Incredibly Nice Boys Who Love Each Other Without Any Sarcasm Or Really Any Edginess To Cut the Sap Whatsoever (of which I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree) situation. I really had to leave you a link because if you haven't read this (http://paloma-cayendo.livejournal.com/8766.html) yet, you need to, and you will love it so hard. It's the story that got me in to MCR and it's not just Ray/Gerard but from Ray's point of view even. I shall now leave the same way I came. Bye!

I like a lot of things about that story (espec. that it's long), but it's got so much angst that I have to brace myself before reading it (Ray is made of sunshine and kittens and shouldn't hurt like that, y'all).

Well, it's not unpleasant in the end, but I have a low angst tolerance in the best of times, and I've been really depressive lately/for too long, so that much hurt? Hard for me.

That said, there are good reasons to read that story for any Ray fan, and for Ray/Gerard fans in particular.

The Jinx Removing scissors tattoo on the side of his neck is (so the rumor goes) partially for Frank and Jamia and partially for Mikey and Alicia. To remove the jinxes of getting your significant other's name tattooed on you and getting matching tattoos, respectively. Also, if I remember, the date on that tattoo is Mikey and Alicia's wedding date. Oh Frank.

You should check to see if your bank offers you automated telephone banking. That way you can call the bank to check your balance instead of spending money on ATMs. (Are you sure it was the ATM machine charging you, and not your bank, for using an ATM? I know my bank has a limit on the number of ATM transactions per month.)
