I wish it were fiction. Iz real.
I am slightly
better. The movies are $1 a pop from a movie Kiosk, so they are for teh cheap. Since I got my netbook back in late April I have something to watch them on all the time now. I can sometimes collect Blu-ray from gift monies (though I can't currently watch them unless I do something like go to 'C&H's'.) I get gift cards for WoW, so I can (try) to play that regularly. (I get 5-10 FPS in most Lich areas, so actually playing is a matter of if you consider playing at that low of settings "playing".) Sadly the netbook is incapable of hardware texture & lighting, so it can't really play any other games. I'm still mostly eating soups, though a few times a week I get a lower cost fast food.
Though my life is sad and terrible, and things like teeth and my car are in constant drain, I am more stable this year than last, yet recovery still seems a long long ways off as I still am finding very few jobs to apply to and they rarely (if ever) actually call me in for an interview.
If anyone doubts and they live close enough they are more than welcome to 'spend the day with teh rabb1t'. But I really wouldn't wish that on anyone who has options.
