Beware Joining MySpace, They Don't Let You Leave!

It appears, that if you start a MySpace page, then decide you no longer want it, and try to cancel your account, they completely ignore you. I've hit the "Cancel Account" link at LEAST 20 times, never gotten the confirmation email they are supposed to send (yes, I've checked my "Spam" folder, it ain't there either). Also, I've emailed support 6 times in the past couple of weeks, no reply from that either. I've tried deleting all my MySpace friends, user pics, and numerous blog posts also, to no avail. Four main reasons I want to drop it are: some pages crash my browser, continuous "spam" friend ads, I really don't have time now to keep up with three blogs, and one annoying person who pissed me off there recently (the story was posted on my journal here earlier in a "Friends Only" post). So, my determination is, to keep their advertisers, they don't cancel accounts (much like AOL), and if you think you may not want a MySpace page later, your best bet is to not start one in the first place!

A Day In Review

Just applied for a janitorial position at St. Francis North Hospital, and positions at the Monroe Freds, Brookshires, and Super 1. Came home to grab a bite to eat, then after I finish stuffin' my face, going to see if the West Monroe Walgreens will be taking applications for the new one they're building at the end of Well Road (want my name in early), followed by applying at both Mac's Fresh Market locations on this side of the river. Around 4pm, I'll go pick Andrew up from the Boy's Club, and maybe stop by somewhere and get a maximum of 3 "Powerball" lottery quick-picks.

Think I'll be going to bed early tonight. Gotta take my son back over to Conway Hospital in the morning (the earlier the better, since he has no appointment). He's not sick, but the medications he's taking for the behavioral stuff run out tomorrow night, and we need to see about getting them refilled, at least just long enough to last until his screening at the Monroe Behavioral Health Clinic on the 26th of this month. The doctors at Conway said he didn't need to suddenly stop taking one of them, the Depecot, which is an anti-seizure medication. Neither my mom or I have actually seen him have any "seizures" since he's been here, but then again, he hasn't been off the medicine since he's been here. Already feeling groggy though, got woke up a little after 3am last night by a wrong number, and never really got back to sleep before getting out of bed at 6am. At least I'm guessing it was a wrong number.... couldn't really understand what the guy was saying, and wasn't sure if it was because I was in a daze from being awoken from a sound sleep, or the guy just wasn't talking plainly. Looked at the caller-ID this morning, and under the name, was the oddest name I've ever seen, "Prime, Time". It was a local number though. Ringer is being shut off tonight as a result...

You Don't Need Glasses... It's The Photos...

I was looking to see what might could be deleted from my camera's compact flash card a while ago, before heading out to Walgreens, and discovered my son has apparently been making use of the "self-timer" feature I showed him how to use last month, without my knowledge. Pics are blurry because he keeps using the "macro" feature, your eyes and monitor are fine...
