Plots & Plans

norabombay and I are going to meet up at the Bookstar at the Town & Country Shopping Center around, erm, I think it was 12:30-ish.

We will then do Scary Things with town.

Yay for Listee meetups!

Quotes

From "Time Shall Not Mend" --

"...One wizard's lonely, two's an argument, and three adds up to two bitterly opposed alliances and a splinter group rapidly gaining in popular support."

Userpics

The great thing about looking like one's userpic is that you can say so when meeting someone you've never seen before.

This is especially nice when one's userpic is a hot cartoon babe.

LJ whore update

Am having great time with norabombay. Stopped in at my place to refuel & head out again.

So far: TJ's, Herb Stop, Metrocenter, Jack-in-the-crack.

Next: rocks.

Yay!

Had much fun with norabombay. She is an LJ whore, and borrowed Tigereye to update her journal after we were done with lunch. We drove all around, and there was much goodness and boyband discussion and looking at scenery and me giggling at Greenway.

I would love to use some kind of online tool to outline our crazy, on-crack route around some of the more interesting areas of Phoenix, but ... we went from Town & Country shopping center to Metrocenter, to templeravenmoon out to the north end of Loop 101 where it intersects 19th Avenue, and then through Scottsdale, into Tempe, into Mesa and out to nearly the eastern end of the 202, then back down Mesa Drive to the 60, and then through downtown past and through Arizona Art Supply back to templeravenmoon again.

It was a lot of fun. I don't get to go just randomly driving around looking at stuff much.

We can hold a coherent conversation, but it does jump from thing to thing.

Oh, and http://www.sexylosers.com is why Fapp's Printing, on Camelback at the corner with 19th Ave, is so funny.

Dogs, and the funky things they eat. Cats. Pets with LJs. Kids. Dancing. Why pop music is so contagious. And so forth.

For the 1700-millionth (but probably not final) time...

Your is said of something that belongs to you. That is your toothbrush. It has your hair in it.

You're is a contraction of You are. You're not going to brush your teeth with that thing? (Note: your teeth, the ones belonging to you. You're not going to, you are not going to do that!)

Yore refers to the past. It is an archaic word. Very few people use it anymore. Borne on the night wind, voices of yore, come from the far-off shore.

Their, there, and they're.

They have taken their car (the one belonging to them) and driven over there (that place), where they're (they are) going to listen to ear-shattering pop music.




Brilliant writers like Margaret Wander Bonanno are allowed to play with words like that when talking to/of the s. oteri. No one else. Well, maybe elementary school students, but they don't know any better.

Personality disorder checkin

I don't usually have a paranoid rating this high. Some of it is genuine yes-they-are-talking-about-me; some of it is sheer paranoia and I know it, and I've been working on chilling myself back down.

I can feel my mental stability and health fluctuate. I have taken baselines, and I know what contains my sanity, where the borders are. Others have reviewed me, and told me what they think the problem areas are, which gives me a very nice reality check. I can almost make it to payday on that much.

Lemming

I find it terribly amusing that the only person so far on this list that I've actually had a physical, sexual relationship with is, well... heh. Hehe. *snork*

Hehe.

*giggle*

... well...

*falls on floor laughing not quite as hard as the "Lose Yourself" incident*
