1. Yes, we're aware that McAfee is reporting this as a "malicious site", we don't know why. I have some indirect evidence suggesting someone filed a bogus report somewhere. In the mean time, doing some software updates. Probably safe/harmless, but things might be down occasionally until it's done.

    If I want better chances of getting work on TranscribeMe, I need to pass the accent exams so that I can qualify to do work with files that have British, Australian, or New Zealand speakers.

    I just failed the British accent exam for the second time. Which means I can't reattempt it for a week! And I don't know what I did wrong! (And even more frustrating: I got both bits 90% accurate, which is not quite enough to pass! Do I need 100% fucking accuracy here? Fuck!)

    Now I'm outright sick, and spent the morning still shivering under two duvets and a blanket.

    Taxi driver, on seeing me get into the cab outside the supermarket with a full bag: "Been shopping?"
    Me, still not well and kind of out of it: "Yeah."
    What I wish I'd said: "No, I'm meeting my black market contact to hand over this bag of human organs."
    I hate it when people ask stupidly obvious questions.

    This cough suppressant tastes like honey-lemon-scented disinfectant. Which I guess it is, but it's AWFUL.

    Want to talk to mom about what's up, but it feels like a bad idea to do so while she's cooking. Mom, plz stop mucking around with sharp things so I can tell you about how my love life done gone into the shitter. (Also, dad's lurking in the kitchen and I'd rather mom know before he does.)

    Wormwitch I'm literally Mulder.

    Bank sent me a letter telling me they would shut down my savings account unless I contacted them. I didn’t realize they could seize the money if I didn’t put anything in and just let it build up.

    Alexand ??? ???

    It's way, way colder in my bedroom than in any other room in the unit. I even triple-checked to make sure I didn't have any of the windows open, but I don't...it just...really really feels that way. But I feel too annoying to complain to maintenance about it, because I already called them a couple of months ago for the exact opposite problem. So now I feel like it'd be obnoxious somehow to call them again like "hey, thanks for doing something about my overly-hot room that I got all whiny about, but you did it wrong, so put it back, thanks."

    Also - one of my roommates figured out a way to lock the thermostat, and I can't figure out a way to unlock it. So I can't even turn the thermostat up. I mean, I probably couldn't anyway, since that would probably make my roommates' bedrooms way too hot...and then they'd be mad at me...but the point is that I don't even have the option.

    And I have a cold for the third time this winter. >:/

    how do I become like these autistic ppl who need bg noise to live... without headphones I can't even enjoy fast food joints or libraries bc there's always some chatty het couple or teen group a few tables away and no matter how hard I unfocus I'm forced to hear and understand Every Single Word.
