Messing With My Feng Shui

Yesterday was pretty eventful; some in a good way, some in a purely sucky way.

On the good side, I finally got that darned new hubcap on. Yay! It only took, what, six months?

Also on the good side, I got a new cell phone plan. I didn't have enough minutes on the old one and was severely in the hole with overages. I could hardly believe it when the new plan was made retroactive and somehow cancelled out all the "over" minutes I was going to have to pay for. That made me very happy.

Cool temps and rain -- good. Increased chances of moisture-induced hair frizzies -- bad. Extra conditioner -- good.

No real craziness at work -- and it's Wednesday already. Good.

On the bad side, the Neighbors From Hell went at it last night. I was stuck for about an hour with a phone in each ear -- neighbors trying to find out what was going on and others telling me what was going on. I'm still not sure who did what to whom. All I know is that the NFH and a bunch of other people were brawling in the street and four cop cars showed up. Their landlord also showed up to document it for the next eviction hearing. We just don't have that kind of crap around here, and it's gotta stop. This is the ultimate in bad.

The whole brouhaha gave me a headache. Bad.

LiLo. Bad. Paris claims to have found religion and developed the need to help others. The very idea of Paris providing jailhouse ministry to LiLo -- good priceless.

Britney going off on photogs -- pretty bad. Continuing to enable these brats and feed their inflated sense of entitlement -- horrible.

Sometimes I wish that the scales were tipped completely in favor of good and there was no bad. That will never happen, though, because it would violate the natural order. There must always be some bad to balance the good. It messes with my Feng Shui, but it is the way it must be.


watermellon - Strange fruit (not the Billie Holiday song).

non-fioction - I think it means "don't mess with the fiat."

the cover your so proud of is the produt of previosly fabricated images - This is pretty well self-explanatory.

how to handel it - Taking lessons to sing a solo in 'The Messiah.'

I was gong to be - He was going to speak but somebody hit him in the head with a gong first.

voracity - The truth about a hungry person.

Heh. This quiz has got my number. It's a good thing I don't put it to the test often.

You Are a Bad Liar

Sorry, but no one is really believing any of your lies.
You're going to have to chill out and practice a lot before you can really deceive effectively.

Gettin chill with hubcaps and cellphones be a Martha Stewart good kinda thang. Dealin with the fuckheads next door, not.

God, I love that, I really do!!! I just wish I could be somewhat unnatural for a little while. I am going through so much shit right now that if the natural order of things were disrupted, just for a while, I would be a happy man.

P.S. Me done put up a post ewe might just be innerested in.

Since when is an imbalance for one person not in balance with the universe? GWB is Prez, is that not an imbalance? That's bad, bad, bad for most of the world, so where's our balance? I had Lots of Bad(tm) growing up, that was pretty darned imbalanced. It's only now that my own balance seems to be tipping the other way. I'm not likely to live to twice my age, so somewhere my own good stuff would have to balance out pretty stiff, if the physical leverage laws bear out for good/bad. Its a cop out to just accept that there will always be bad, we should squash that idea. It just doesn't have to be so.

Serena Joy said...

Scary speak my language. That's exactly what I call them. And fucktards. And a few other choice adjectives. As soon as I get home, I'm going to catch up with everybody and will see what you posted.

I see where you're coming from, Charles. I think, though, that if there was nothing but good we would become complacent. I think there must always be an opposite to everything to maintain balance in the universe. As yin as to yang, so is good to evil. Or something like that.

Kanrei said...

If there were no "bad" people then who would I feel superior to? Just kidding...sort a a degree....

I think you have just redefined your NFH. I had a picture in my head of what was happening, but I never imagined you in the ghetto. A street-fight?! I have not seen one of those in 20 years. I was not even sure people still fought to be honest. I live in Miami and they just shoot each other. Fists are for when you are out of ammo.

***You Are a Pretty Good Liar***

Your lies are somewhat believable, but sometimes you get caught.
Work on keeping your body language and emotions calm. And you'll be a better liar in no time!

Serena Joy said...

You do have a point, Kan. There are those to whom it's not that hard to feel superior. As for the street brawling, this was the Junior Fucktard Brigade -- the NFH kids and their enemies. I mean, what kind of 12-year-old yells right in front of his low-down mama that he's gonna fuckin' kill some mofo? As far as we know, they weren't using guns -- but they have them stashed in their mama's and daddy's cars. Last night, it was fists, rocks, and ... logs. People in the 'hood are really angry about it today and calls and e-mails are flying about various legal remedies. They DON'T want this 'hood turned into some kind of ghetto. It's a big mess.

Kanrei said...

Have you considered hiring security? I assume you pay monthy dues so there is a fund for it.

Serena Joy said...

I don't live in condos, Kan, so there's no dues/association. The problem is that the house next door to mine was turned into 4 apartments. The NFHs are in 2 of them - Mom & boyfriend from hell downstairs, bunch of hooligan kids upstairs. The laws are so tenant oriented that the landlords (friends of mine) are having a hell of a time trying to evict them.

leelee said...

I am a bad liar..I didn't need a quiz to know that..I'm so bad at it that I almost never do it..unless I feel the truth will really hurt someone..lying by omission I imagine.

Sorry to hear about your NFH situation..sounds raucous alright!

I am a Libra, so I myself seek balance..almost at any cost. Don't care for the scales being tipped in any one direction.

I love the animations you put on your posts..I may have to nick that site.

I'm not mentioning the Fluff Bunnies of Entitlement.

Serena Joy said...

There are some cute animations on that site, Leelee. Grab yourself some!

Camille! That's what I shall call the Trio of Troublesome Tarts from now on -- The Fluff Bunnies of Entitlement.:-)

G-Man said...

Lets see...You gotta take the....
Bitter with the Sweet
Good with the Bad
Yin and the Yang
Valtrex with the Herpes
Yes Serena, we need some sort of balance..
The Teeter with the Totter..?
I bet your Fung Shui is awesome...xoxoxbgxoxox

Serena Joy said...

G, when my yin outweighs my yang and your yang outweighs your yin, things are pretty good all over. I love teeter-totters -- they make you feel like your Feng Shui is in perfect harmony.:)

I'm supposed to practice lying?? My goal is to be a better liar?? Okay, this quizz is totally out of whack with your 'tipping the scales to the good side' ideas....

Serena Joy said...

I don't think you're supposed to practice, Seeley. It shows you're not a natural born liar, so this tips your good karma on the plus side.

ALL these quizzes are out of whack.:-)

Serena Joy said...

Take a breath, Galen. LOL. Sounds like you're meditating over a Dali or a Picasso. You know, the ones with body parts in weird places? Like toes on tummies?:-)

Sling said...

I think the good outweighs the bed here,although the spoiled,entitled brats carries some heavy weight.
..**Secret getting rid of NFH strategy**..
Often,when the police are unable to do anything,the Health Department can expedite eviction proceedings!
Say,for example,there have been numerous complaints regarding health code violations..
Don't ask me how I know that.

Serena Joy said...

So Sling, you're saying that if I take a sledge hammer to their pipes, get some good mold growing on their walls, and let loose a box of cockroaches and mice in their place, I could sic the Health Dept. on them? I like it! All's fair in love and war, and this is war.:)

ThatGreenyFlower said...

SJ, from what you write about the NFH, my guess is that you won't have to actually DO anything to get the Health Department's curiosity piqued. Those folks are either cooking meth or attracting roaches, one...I'm sure of it. You could report both and then feel vindicated when only one is correct.

In all seriousness, I'm sorry about the Fucktard Family. I'm also sorry about the Fluffbunnies of Entitlement. There are just so many things that aren't right in the world...

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Greeny, at the Fucktard Family. One way or another, they're going down. They just don't know it yet.

Now if we could just do something about the Fluffbunnies of Entitlement, things would be better with the world.:)

MONA said...

polar opposites are the order of the world. They bring a balance

To make us realise the value of good, it has to be juxtaposed with the bad.

then again... good & bad are not seperate entities... they are both the two sides of the same coin...both are the part of the same neutral energy...

Serena I am so sorry about that situation. Even I have begun to recieve calls from the girl & I see clouds begin to gather here too...

Corn Dog said...

I didn't even take the test because I am a hideous liar.

Serena Joy said...

That's the way I see it, too, Mona.

LOL, CD.:-)

Charles said...

Some might become complacent, but just think how far we could go, without having to worry about the bad things happening. Without bad, everything would be good. How many bad icecreams can you think about? Isn't that an imbalance? Do you ever hear anyone complaining about it?

Serena Joy said...

There is NO bad ice cream, Charles.:) If a big dog came along, though, and stole your ice cream cone, that would be bad. And that risk is one of the chances we have to take to enjoy anything. I sort of think that risk ensures balance.

Charles said...

So what you're saying is that in order to be able to enjoy your icecream, one should visit the dog park while eating it, otherwise it wouldn't be good? Does that mean if you eat it in the mall or an icecream shop, its not good?

Serena Joy said...

That question's too existential for me, Charles. Too many variables. To me, the ice cream will always be good, wherever I eat it, but there's also always the chance that I could drop it. If I hang onto it and finish it, then good has prevailed, even though there was bad waiting for a chance to pounce.
