Today, our remote died. Brand new remote! We bought it only a couple months ago, and it crapped out! The light still comes on, but it won't change channels or turn off the tv. At first, I thought that I had to input the programming codes again. Annoying, but not really a big deal. Come to find out, someone had thrown away the manual. I won't mention this person my mom by name, but who the CRAP THROWS AWAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT? I even stuck it in the sidetable drawer so no one WOULD throw it away! All I could find was an old old old manual for an ancient remote that died approximately 9 years ago. Like that helps.

So I turned to my old friend Google. *pets Google*

Found the codes. Did a little victory dance. Reinputted the codes. And it still doesn't work. I tried some different codes, since these manuals give you fifty-bajillion to make sure you have one that actually works. I must have tried 10 different codes. Still doesn't work.

I know it's not the batteries, because before I even tried putting in the codes, I put in fresh batteries. No go there.

So now I am convinced that I have remote goblins who come into my house and fuck with my remotes. They use their sparkly mischievous goblin powers to screw with them.

Must compain yell at molest talk with the Goblin King about this matter. I'm sure his goblins are also stealing my underwear and moving around my keys. And possibly using up my shampoo. And writing obscene statements in the steam on my bathroom window.

Damn goblins. We had some of them for a while at my old apartment. They hid the remote in between the couch pieces for a week. I had to turn the TV off manually. It sucked.

Just say "You have no power over me," or threaten to chop off certain appendages. That oughta take care of the little bastards! XD

I bet! They're nasty little motherfuckers. *burns them all*

...but I kind of like having the excuse to annoy Jareth. Cause he's... uh, powerful. And stuff. And totally hot revolting in those obscenely tight pants.

Goblins will do that, true story. They also steal pens and put the milk jug back in the fridge with exactly one drop left in it. And stealing one sock per pair and blaming it on the washer!

They also hide the phone, and even when its ringing, you still can't find it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's being picked on!

Our goblins have stolen my mom's important website design papers. And they seem to have put more stuff into my room and messed up my chronological layering moved it all around. They make it all multiply whenever I try to clean. Also, they scratched the teflon off of Dad's brand new frying pan and threw away the reciept.

Those little wankers! *shakes fist*

They also turned off my alarm this morning, so I woke up at 10 instead of 8. *facepalm*

I was awake at 8, but I fell back asleep... until 10 when our neighbors decided it would be a good idea to edge their lawn. *grumble*
