I can't go see my grandfather in the ICU because I'm sick. Bleh.

Feeling any better? Any news on your grandpa too?

Hope things have taken a turn for the better on both since your last post!

Slowly getting better and nothing good, respectively. I'll know more in a few days, hopefully.

Fingers crossed and thanks, Mercury.

Searching for places/people to help a friend under "must find accommodation for $X by June Y or become homeless" constraint. $X is mostly sketchy online ads that you'd ideally want to take extra time to verify.

Really sucks to deal with this even by proxy. A lot of the nasty things being said about finding housing in US boomtowns are very much applicable in Canada too.

Yeah, that's horrible all the way around.

I've heard vancouver's super expensive to live in, that reminds me of things like you'd see in other places with vastly distorted costs of living.

Had a job interview today.

Today's also the day where my Dad's car, which I was relying on to get to the interview, decided to have its transmission and engine die.

Didn't even make it to the interview.

Yeah, I did. They said they'd call back but they never did.

blegh, hate dealing with Comcast.

Their whole business model and that of that industry is shady as fuck and I wish it wasn't what it was just to get internet.

Owwww. What happened? I saw you log off IRC and I was wondering if it was Comcast being Comcast.

Nah, that wasn't related. I just forgot to relog on there.

The comcast thing is just the usual annoyance with not being able to have one steady price with small ocassional increases for inflation, instead of the nonsense where you regularly have to call them about their latest idiotic bundle or finding a way to get cheaper deal or just swapping service for a year or so with the competitor.

That's an idiotic practice and I don't see why the only options are suck it up, or give up the internet.

That sounds ughworthy, yes. Glad I don't have to deal with Comcast ever.
