After-effects

The numbness was wearing off on my gums first. So when poky things were happening to my disturbed nerve, things that were also rasping at my abraded gums, the gums were hurting but the tooth-nerve was not.

I have sore places now from assorted needle-stabbing.

But their temporary filling feels so much better than mine, and looks too. Thursday. Thursday. Thursday.

CHOCOLATE.

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2007000420,00.html -- inventive addressing gets the postcard there. It's one of those coincidences that's a little too well-done & well-aimed to be real coincidence, and they always give me shivers and goosebumps when I see them.

Pimping:
mydarkestsecret, a sponsored community. Bit of backstory here: Movie company came to LJ, and said, "Hi! We want a sponsored community to plug our movie."
LJ: "Great! What do you want to do with it?"
Movie Company: "Er ... um ... well, we were thinking something involving the fans. Or something. So have at it."
LJ: "... You mean you want us to decide what to do with your sponsored community?"
Movie Company: "That would be just super!"
LJ: "We need someone who knows fandom."
LJ's Resident Fan Expert: "They want me to do *what*? ... Ooo, whee!" *slightly-not-so-sane cackling* *reads the book like a fiend* "OK, we're going to need a little *help*." *cracks knuckles*

So the upshot of it is, two of my favorite fan writers (they're both in my top ten) are RPing as vivian, one for the entries and the other for the IC-comments. I'd say that this has the potential to be like the Very Secret Diaries on crack, except I trust those two to not go all VSD-format. But. Whee, fan-service!

If you happen to recognize the fan writers in question by their fruits, they'd really appreciate you not going up to them in the RP and going "OH HAY GUISE" -- just send feedback. :D


HOT CROSS BUNS!!

hcolleen: "Silly woman."
Me (singing): "Silly woman, on the internet / Silly woman, one that I just met..."
hcolleen: "STOP!!"

From work today:

I am totally digging "Paint Your Picture", Showaddywaddy.

Pink Shirt Guy: "What's the relationship of kilobytes to a megabyte?"
Me: "Megabyte is bigger."
Pink Shirt Guy: "Is it a hundred kilobytes to a megabyte, or a thousand?"
Me: "A thousand. ... A geek thousand, 1024."
Pink Shirt Guy: "A geek thousand? Like a baker's dozen?"

Vaporware: "Penny for your thoughts" paid blogging site.

Hyperactivity is setting in. Grandma Cinderella brought one of her grandkids in while she had a meeting. Snarky Lady started babysitting. Well, she started me babysitting, but since I'm kind of withdrawn with kids, she took over and they were playing Pinball together. (There's an exploit on the training room computers that allows game-playing.)
