I want cheesecake.
why do these people need the address of my references? just take the phone number and leave me alone, you hussies.
EDIT: Also, I made a salad for breakfast, then noticed we didn't have dressing. Tossed some meat in instead and it was delightful. Protein and roughage, whooooo~
A conversation between my husband and I regarding a current writing project:
Me: Besides, maybe if I get all this sap WRITTEN DOWN it'll free up room in my brain for other stuff.
Matt: Sap is incredibly viscous -- it refuses to let go and just drain away.
Truer words were never spoken, yo.
What about maple sap, yo?
You making fun of me, yo?
"Instead"? How... how else do you make a salad?
No. I'm just pointing out that, at certain times of the year, not all sap is so viscous as to refuse to let go and drain away.
The maple industry is entirely predicated on that notion.
If only mental sap worked the same way. :)
Today is an awesome day.
For one thing, it's gorgeous outside. Sunny, glorious, supposedly 54 degrees but in the sun it feels like it's 70.
For another, the bank trip went painlessly by. The teller and I chatted about League of Legends (she mains Annie and LeBlanc, I play Ryze and Graves, we talked about skins and strategies and how frustrating it is to lane against Kassadin) and I learned that I have significantly more money in my bank account than I thought I did.
There was a young fiddler on a streetcorner playing with a smile on her face and half-closed eyes as she swayed to her music, and her joy in playing was contagious.
I solved a tricky little technical problem relating to driver compatibility in Linux which I'd been working on for a couple of days.
All around it's just been an awesome day.
I love when you encounter unexpected nerds. I was chatting away to the bouncer in one of my local pubs and he mentioned he was working extra shifts to save up for a PC. This piqued my interest and asked, and he started spelling out which high end components he was getting and waiting to come out. Turns out he's a massive nerd. High-end WOW raid guilds, gaming LANs with other bouncers at six in the morning after they finish work, and building the new PC for the new Rome: Total War. It's great, if I ever get pissed off in the pub I can go outside and have a chat with him about games, and I get to hear all the latest gossip about the city's nightlife.
Hmm... My desktop PC (a random -- dare I say Frankensteinian -- assortment of parts in an 11-year-old case) is no longer booting. It powers up, but there's nothing to display. It's not the monitor (works with other sources).
Granted, I haven't tried swapping video cards yet, but the integrated NIC had been failing with alarming regularity over the past few weeks, the USB controller would intermittently stop working, and the system would shut down with random power-management errors, so would it be unreasonable to presume I have a bad mobo? Or should I go grab the POST diagnostic card I have stashed around here somewhere?
It sucks, because I was just getting back into Skyrim.
Maybe this is a sign that I should just buy or build a new system already.
I absolutely love seeing people that are into their music, or the music of others. When you can see the passion for what they're hearing on their faces and in their movements, it's just the best.
i wish i could do that with a cello but i don't think swaying would be very possible...
Check out Apocalyptica's music videos. You can totally rock out while on a cello. :)
I hate you
ALL MY TABS, GONE.
If you're using Chrome the default new tab window has a Recently Closed menu at the bottom. It will have a "X Tabs" with all the tabs you had open. Or, sometimes, when you open it again it will have a yellow bar at the top asking if you want to restore your session.
If you're not using Chrome may God have mercy on your soul.
Thank ye kindly for those words Lhowon. Ah and have no fear, I do use Chrome despite their wish to overlap and take over everything.
Unfortunately this is one of those, "HAHAHA SUCKER! I am not going to be nice and allow you any of those options nor give you a nice clump of tabs open last session restore option when looking at history" shut downs. More's the pity.
I've noticed that when getting (random holiday, birthday, etc.) cards I tend* to prefer those crappy homemade ones made out of printer paper and covered in scratchy pen doodles and shitty handwriting. Store bought cards are pretty and all, but I love the personality from the shitty cards**.
*The only exception being from my mother, who I know chooses cards based on what makes her cry the most.
**The author shows some bias here as, after much research, we have discovered that over 90% of cards given by the author fall under this category.
Today I walked in through a door I wasn't supposed to use and saw a group of people. They all froze when they saw me and a single ball rolled into my foot as one of them said "Is he supposed to be here?"
It was freaking cool.
I'm headed to Missouri for almost the next week. As a result, I'll be somewhat less active on here than usual. Also, I'll be in Missouri. If anybody happens to live in the area, shoot me a PM and maybe we can set something up.
*HISSES* NO, WE DON'T WANT YOU GO AWAY
Hey cool though, what for?
Which side of Missouri, east or west?
Oh hey, you live in Missouri? Cool. We should hang out!
Visiting a friend of mine wot lives there, primarily.
Ladies and gentlemen, the tsundere in action.
Central, actually. I'll be staying in the vicinity of Fort Leonard Wood.
I was speaking generally, for the Midwest region. ;D
And don't be all coy you know perfectly well the area I claim as my domain (15 or so paces nearabouts)
Nute Not so! Soli and Chan, thank ye to remember!
I know the area you claim as your domain for part of the year, but I don't know if perhaps it changes with the seasons, as is the case for many of similar age.
Don't you get in the way of my shipping, little missy.
Actually I have family there, but then again that's not saying much since our numbers are many for we are legion.
The rest I spend underground as a proper hermit does, natch. Anyhow, do wish you well!
I think I'll forever and ever be amused whenever I think of the term shipping and it's pretty much just due to BF. And Grognards.
I find it generally amusing that the animu term that has reached the widest audience among the non-dating game audience of Broken Forum is tsundere. Who thought a bunch of outwardly hostile but really golden hearted rogues would become familiar with the term?
Secretly they all ship LP'ER/GROGNARD. *srs nods*
What about the LPrognards?
This is why it's so difficult to write ficcage for this fandom! I keep trying to get people interested in it but there's too many divisible types and people lose interest when I begin with the cross hybrids. *deep sigh* The woes of a unpopular/unknown fandom fanfic writer. v____v
Now I'm imagining Hatoful Grognard.
*brb dying from simultaneously the sunburst of too amazing to contain in my imagination!
and also the potential of comedy gold to be mined from these veins*
Today, my roommates taught me how to punch them. This may not be a sound investment in the long run.
I have no idea what this means. You're two people?
Back in March, I had a dream in which, well, let me just quote it:
I just heard on the news that "researchers found that some children diagnosed with autism grew up to live normal lives". This is making me die with laughter because I know what that basically means is "we had fun diagnosing every unruly child with autism but it turns out they were just normal fucking kids".
i can not. I am unable to can.
Wait to go until March when Rolla is doing the St. Pats shenanigans. :P
ALSO YOU HAVE TO GO TO BIG LOUIE'S. Or at least the outside of it. And take pictures, because that place looks RIDONK.
I have no fucking idea how long it will take me to write up the high level requirements. You people can't decide what project I should spend most of my time on, and the clients only know how their old mainframe screens work. Who am I supposed to talk to so I can understand the business rules? I might as well close my eyes and point to a random date on the calendar for when I'll be done.
- what I'd like to respond to my supervisor's last email.
