Damn cats! I was feeding them, but apparently, according to them, not fast enough!
Need I say that the fingertips are a highly sensitive area?

I've noticed a recent trend of classic novels being published with comic book-ish covers, without being actual comic book adaptations of them. As some who likes comics, it really bugs me, turning a genuine storytelling medium into a gimmicky attention-catching technique.
If they start using a manga-esque style for that, I might cry. And, hell, I like the manga style as a whole.Tentative typing: ISFJ 6w5 or 9w1 (Sp/S[?]).

So I'm watching the first season of Heroes. Simone treats Isaac like he's royalty when he's on heroin, but once he's clean, she treats him like garbage. Jesus.

Dang. I find a website where I can watch Big Windup! outside the US without that MegaVideo BS, and they take the episodes down. Fiddlesticks.

My random thought has now become a not so random rant. This same newsstory appears with different headlines from different news organizations. I'm listing them worst to best:
Are we really surprised? Fox News: Many Earths Out There? Nearly All Kepler Planets May Be The Real Deal
CNN's headline originally read Two Earth-like Planets 2 days ago, then yesterday they changed it to... Two new Earths and the search for life
Accurate presentation... NYTimes: Two Earth-size Planets Are Discovered
If we were to arrange these three media sources on viewers/readers, would it indicate whether or not responsible journalism sells better or worse? Can we get hold of that kind of data?"There is no god; there is only us. Savage and fragile."

Your post sounds like you're in the habit of controlling their time, not the other way around.
They gave you two reasonable options, "now," or, "later," and offered to let you choose one of the two reasonable options. If you had chosen "now," they could watch the movie and get shit done later. If you had chosen "later," they could do a load of laundry, or call a friend without getting interrupted by you, or generally use their time how they want to use it, knowing they have a chunk of time to focus on their needs. You answered with an in-between third option, one that doesn't respect the fact that they have shit to do, too. You're not a dependent baby, your parents shouldn't be waiting on your moods to dictate how they spend their time.
She's offering you cooperation as an adult, so cooperate. She revoked that when you didn't act like an adult. It's not like your parents are telling you the plan, they're letting you cooperate by asking for your input. It's taken for granted that you will respect their time by cooperating and coming to an agreement that works for everyone. Your mom is ticked because you disrespected the fact that she is a human who has a right to focus on herself for a few hours a day instead of a mom whose sole purpose in life is to respond to her child's moods. Yes, she's oversensitive about it. But who wouldn't be, after parenting young kids? Genuinely putting others first hard, so don't push the boundaries by constantly expecting it when you're a mature teen.*You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
*Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason once accepted, despite your changing moods.

Am I selfish if I make them wait, even a little bit? Should I have just agreed to watch the movie right away? I feel bad now...

What the heck, it's stupid question day and the dang smiley dialgue still has a friggin bug. It can't just open once and load, it has to reload itself at least a dozen times before it's done.
