running, bomb tech

(no subject)

"So You Hacked Our Site!" -- a tale of utter technical incompetence. Put down beverages. (Non-technical people might even get a giggle out of this.)

I am having far too much fun with this website: -- not safe for Abe. -- eBay. -- Orson Scott Card. -- relative silliness.

LOLcat Rede. (In case you haven't seen it yet...) ... now it needs illustration.

Officially Sick

Went to urgent care this morning for myself. Some peering in the ears and stethescoping later, with a bonus chest x-ray (my first), and I don't have pneumonia, but I do have a sinus infection. So I have some industrial-strength decongestants, with bonus anti-mucous in there, some antibiotics, and some cough syrup with bonus knockout properties.


I think I'll go to bed now, because I have to be at work this evening for my zomg new position!

No longer zombie, but still a robot

Took a nap last night, because I knew I was going to urgent care this morning, so it didn't surprise me that I got up early. The happy codeine cough medicine put me out for about four solid hours, which is far better than I've been sleeping at one time for quite a few nights.

My productivity has been approximately 0 this whole long weekend. Okay, so I did get my inbox down to something reasonable, and I am sick, and I have been turning my sleeping schedule around, but I should think I'd have at least more writing to show for it. But no, my brain has been stalled out.

  • 00:10 @afuna I need to re-read the Arrows trilogy. My teenage years too! #
  • 00:14 @afuna Of course Vanyel. Diana Tregarde? #
  • 00:17 @afuna Three. Burning Water and Jinx High. (I need another copy of Jinx High; mine got lost on a bus.) #
  • 00:19 @afuna In several different flavours, with bonus crackpot flute-Bard. Her later Valdemar stuff has completely lost me, though. #
  • 00:22 @afuna I had a crush on his whole triad! #
  • 00:23 @afuna Having re-read some stuff more recently, probably both. I think the joy really went out of it for her after a while. #
  • 00:23 @afuna Eric, Kory, and Beth. #
  • 00:24 @afuna Her fairytale retelling is good and still has life. Maybe she's not locked into a series there? #
  • 00:26 @afuna I blame Tannim for hooking me on TMBG. 100%. (And Tannim crossed over with Diana in Jinx High, as a cameo.) #
  • 00:28 @afuna Jinx High was the one with the psychotic prom queen who was manipulating dark forces to be powerful and gorgeous. D/k salamander. :/ #
  • 00:30 @afuna Robin McKinley is looooooove. Patricia McKillip has some good stuff too. And if you haven't met Diane Duane yet, omg. <3 #
  • 00:36 @afuna "REAL" MOUTH LOLOLOLOL ... (yes) #
  • 00:38 @gameboyguy13 We must corrupt you with this book we are speaking of. :D #
  • 00:45 @gameboyguy13 Jinx High, by Mercedes Lackey. Her Magic's ___ series is all right but depressing. #
  • 00:57 @afuna I would not say known for. She has some sweet scenes but she's known for the magic/fantasy. #
  • 17:16 I think I might be awake. In any case there is clean laundry. #
