Baby it's *cold* outside!

Stop laughing, you northerners and easterners. California is supposed to be sunny and warm! I've had enough of winter. I've had enough of having to wear my socks inside or have cold feet. I've had enough of being cold in my shorts when I'm inside.

I think it got all the way down to freezing last night! I easily saw my breath this morning, and I nearly saw it once sitting inside my car.

Brrr. Please, spring, come soon! We need our 70 degree weather back!

Kids and Insults

In the last two days I've been called a fascist, a Nazi, Hitler, and now a capitalist. The first three were because I got annoyed at someone typing in all-caps. The last one was over this debate of limiting free LJ users' posts per day. Tell me where the logic is in this?

Part of my posted comment on the matter:
You get what you pay for, kids.

You don't put money towards LJ? Then you should expect to be limited. Put the extra resources towards people who pay their way.

I voted yes on 'Is 5 posts/day for free users more reasonable?', but only because there was no better answer. I think it is /too/ reasonable. Limit the free users to hell and back, then they'll start paying to get higher limits, more services, etc.

The reply from some random person: lj is going to lose users because of that.

My reply: To be blunt: So? What do free users contribute towards the running of things? Nothing. What do free users offer to help pay for servers? Nothing. Free users are leeches. That may not sound "nice", but it's the truth of the matter.

Her reply: once again, a capitalist who cares for nothing but money and financial support. I understand that the servers are bogged and that is difficult. Apparantly becuase people have money means they are better people and more worthy. That's a load of crap if I have ever heard it...

And mine, the final one: Uh... You *do* understand that running LJ costs money? So you are claiming that other people should pay to support you? Or that the people who run LJ should pay for everything out of their own pockets? Why?


I really feel like banging my head against the wall.

Any contact wearers?

I just took out and threw away my contacts. They're disposable, but they're supposed to be used two weeks before tossing them; I wore these four days.

Why? Because I cried on Monday. Does this happen to anyone else? If I cry with my contacts in, they're like /torture/ for weeks after. Even with a super-duper weekly cleaning, even with daily scrubbing, they feel seriously dry and they're cloudy to look through. Very uncomfortable, they make my eyes very tired and hurting.

I'm guessing that the extra tears put more oils? or something? on them, and so gas and liquids can't get through them like they should, but that's just a guess. I've worn contacts for 15 years now, and it's always been like this no matter what brand I get. (Always soft contacts though.)
