Again, months go by without me checking in. I'm still alive, still working. Although I really truly think my job is trying to kill me most days. I've fallen out with most of my family because of my lifestyle choices and the people I associate with. I've learned just how really closeminded and bigoted my family is in the last 6 months, and that breaks my heart. One of the biggest things they oppose? The people I love. I'm in a poly relationship, with 3 other people.

My Dezii, Jess, and Alyx. I love them dearly. But my family hates the relationship for a myriad of reasons....the fact that we're all bi, the fact that Dez & Alyx are minorities, the fact that I'm involved with another woman, and the fact that Alyx is trans. But I dont care. These people are my true family and I'll defend them to the death.

ETA: And if you're on FB, you can find me there https://www.facebook.com/misstami76
Its where I am most of the time unless I'm playing Warcraft.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text

Still alive....

Thought maybe I should check in and let people know I am alright. I am on Facebook most of the time now. I wanted to post a series of pics that show how much I've changed in the last year.

Its amazing what a year of stress being gone and being on the right meds can do for you.
Figured I'd post some more recent pics of myself....this first one is from Christmas in Ottawa with Angela.

And theses were taken a few weeks ago....just to show my weightloss so far.

And my piercing!

(if they look like its on opposite sides, its because one pic was taken in a mirror)

And just for added measure.....mi hermano, Dez!

May. 3rd, 2011

So yeah...its been ages since I've posted anything here, months really. So I figured its time for an update to let people know I am still alive and that I'm actually doing really well right now.

The move from NY to Georgia went off relatively without a hitch. I was terrified about driving a 14 foot truck over 1000 miles by myself, but after the first hour, I was comfortable with it. And I'm glad I took the route I did...cutting west thru Ohio before turning south. I missed the bad weather thru the mountains of PA. And I got to stop for the night in Louisville and meet up with my sissy Brooke, whom I miss terribly. Things are good here in Georgia....Crystal and I get along great, I love the house & neighborhood, and I'm back to work full time.

No longer with Casey....the lying, cheating,immature bastard. Guess its what I get for dating a 23 year old...was fun and all, but so not worth the drama and immaturity. Its been about a month & a half since all that shit came to a head. And as of 2 weeks ago....I'm sort of with Bastian. Anyone whos known me a number of years knows who Bastian is and that I've known him for 10 years and was in love with him for a long time. Nothing came of it other than a very close friendship because I was married and he has this hang up about age difference. He disappeared from my life about 3-4 years ago because of stuff going on in his life. He ended up going back to Romania for a couple of years after his moms death & then he lost his best friend. He disappeared on everyone. He came back into my life in January and we picked up where we left off for the most part. So its complicated right now....hes very old fashioned....we're not boyfriend/girlfriend, but we're not just friends. We're waiting to see what happens when I'm over there in December. He wants to take me on a proper first date, take this slow. Did I mention he lives in North Wales? In the meantime....we're having fun. If you're following me on Facebook, you've seen a bit of it. LOL

Prompted by finally having had it with my family and them telling me what I should and should not post on FB....I came out of the closet to EVERYONE about being bi (my mother is still processing that one, and not well might I add) and that I'm pagan. Now the entire family and everyone who knows me, knows about both. Best comment I got from a friend was that they'd never seen someone come out of 2 closets at once.

And I'm finally being me....the me I always was inside. I'm changing how I dress, how I act, how I look. I got my eyebrow pierced, getting my nose done next. I'm still dropping weight....and I'm feeling fantastic. I'm the happiest I've been in a very, very, very long time.

I've made one of the best friends I've ever had in Dez, who my mother blames for a lot of this, I think. He's my brother, and I love him to bits. He also got me into playing Warcraft....which my mother thought was a cult at first. I have my girls Mel, Brooke, Tiff, & Chas. In fact, Tiff & Chas will be here in June for a girls weekend in Atlanta and a True Blood premier party.

If you want to keep up with me, the best place is on facebook http://www.facebook.com/misstami76 I dont come on here much anymore for some reason. But I'll pop up now and then.
...until someone dies and they start squabbling over the deceased's belongings. I thought Bill's family would be different. I was hugely wrong and found that out fast. I've had constant demands for certain items (including things that belonged to both of us, not just him). His mother had the nerve to show up at my house with A FUCKING LIST of what everyone wanted. I was willing to part with things like awards he had back in school, some of his artwork, and some personal things. But then I started getting demands for things like video games, his tv, ALL of his artwork, the marble chess set (which belonged to both of us). So I cut them off and said that when I went through his things and decided what I wanted to get rid of, I would give them those things. And I've not heard a word from them since then. Well, I called his mom today because I'm moving Saturday and asked her to come this week and help me pack up, which included going through this things and giving her some of that stuff. I also asked if some of the family would be willing to help load the truck Saturday. She hemmed and hawed about helping me pack...and then informed me that none of the family would most likely be willing to help me because I wasn't giving them WHAT THEY WANTED. So I told her to fucking never mind and hung up on her. I'm FURIOUS right now.

So meeting at Social Services went both bad and good...

The good: I got my foodstamps back.

The bad: Its another 2 weeks before I have an appointment about the rent. And then they aren't even guaranteeing that they'll help me with it. *sighs* Thanks to those who've sent me money to help, but I am still about $300 down. I'm hoping that by giving him SOMETHING he'll be somewhat appeased and back off a bit. At least enough to buy me time for my taxes to come in, my dentures to be ready, and for me to get the fuck out of town.

Yes, by the way, y'all can call me Toothless right now....I had 2 choices at the dentist...months and months of pain and surgery and procedures...or a month with no teeth and get dentures. I took option 2. I go Monday to see if they can do the impressions and get making the dentures underway.

And for those who were asking about the move....as you know, I can go back to my job if I move out of NY. Well, all_booty offered me a place to live in Georgia and I've accepted it. Theres just 2 things delaying me going at the moment: taxes and dentures. Once those are done, I'm out of here and headed south.

Help needed....

So the landlord gave me an eviction notice this morning. He's not even willing to work with me or give me til the end of the month. Why? Because the neighbors granddaughter wants the apartment. The paper he's given me is not even a legal court document. Its something he typed up and printed off at home. But he wants me out by the 7th. Social Services is dragging their feet about helping me....I'm supposed to go to Georgia at the end of the month (once my taxes come back and I can afford to move) so I can resume my job. I need help, guys. I hate asking for it, but I don't know what else to do. My rent is $460, and he's giving me to the 7th to come up with it. If you can help me out at all, my paypal is tribereddragon@gmail.com

I'm going to continue to badger social services, but they've been spectacularly unhelpful so far.

Jan. 18th, 2011

Yeah, I know, its been over a month since I last posted. *waves hello* Sorry about that. Things have just been stressful as hell over here and I've been kind of avoiding everyone other than my rp group because of it. Trying to find work (been on about 15 interviews already), I can't go back to my other job because I haven't moved out of NY (shes not budging on this), they cut off my foodstamps and I'm having to go through the whole hell of reapplying. I'm going to be evicted from my apartment in a few weeks if I don't get rental assistance (which they are dragging their feet on) and the car is about to be repossessed. I dont know what the fuck I'm going to do. I'd be without internet or phone right now if Bill's aunt hadn't paid the bill for me last month.

So yeah....I've not posted in awhile. I'm alive and hanging in there. Still working on the job situation. I'm trying to find something in NY so that I don't have to move, because I've been unable to find anything I can afford on my own. Putting my resume in everywhere, making phone calls to follow up constantly.

Nov. 15th, 2010

I've got my job back. Thank god.

I'll start back after the first of the year, will have to go thru some retraining, and move over the border into Pennsylvania.

But I have my job back and am feeling a bit less panicky & stressed about how I'm going to live.

Nov. 11th, 2010

So I heard from Abby....


I did not get a message from you on Monday or I would have replied – I am glad you got in touch again. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You and your family will certainly be in our thoughts as you go through this hard time. I am very glad that you were able to spend that time with Bill – life is short and precious as I’m sure you know better than anyone!

At this point, we are not legally set up to employ anyone in New York any longer. As you may or may not know, New York has some stringent worker laws/rules/requirements. We cancelled all accounts and insurance a few months after your leave began and are still dealing with the state over fines – it’s a lot of paperwork. Is there any chance that you would move back here or anywhere else?

If not, we can definitely refer you to a colleague at a similar type of company in New York and give you high high recommendations. We definitely want to see you working again and wish it were simpler.

Please let me know if you would be able to move back to the area/what your plans are. If you do plan to move back within a month or two, we may be able to get you started as a South Carolina based employee and let you work some during the transition home.

So...my choices are to go on to a new company or move back to South Carolina.

In other good news...my title 4 rights have finally cleared & I can go back to school. But with Bill gone now...I can go to school on campus locally and get a fair amount of financial aid/living allowance.

I've gone from having no choices to having no idea what to do now...
