fish of iron

Tonight I meant to say "fist of iron" when talking to someone. Not in Typo City. "...with a fish of iron!" I proudly instructed. That and a pillowfight need to get up on the website.

This morning, I had occasion to need tech support from one of the Red Cube Badge Guys. I called and got Neo. When his branch of the Red Cube Badge Guys get called, they need name, rank, serial number, and commander. I fed him the commander's name. "And your name?" he asked.

It was the end of a shift. I was punch-drunk. "Joan Lunatic," I said, as straight-faced as one can be when being that 7am and chipper.
"And how do you spell that?"
"L-U-N-A-T-I-C."
He noted it down, and I could hear his confusion start to widen as he clicked through his Handy List of People Who Should Be Calling Him.
"But you'll probably find me under my maiden name, $LASTNAME," I said, smirking.
It really shouldn't be this easy. He'd bought it.


When I write these LJ-things up, even though I'm speaking only from the perspective of a long-time user of the site, I'm writing them with LJ Support volunteering in mind. If I got paid for it, it would be a second job. :D

@semanticist I recommend one of those long tubes of Nerf that are for use in swimming pools. Cut in halves or thirds, a great training LART. 07:34 AM July 28, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

@semanticist Good luck with that training. 06:58 AM July 28, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

@semanticist Also, that channel volunteers together regularly; random strangers aren't usual. 09:11 PM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

@semanticist That's a Very Good Question. IRC sez No. 11:51 AM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

@semanticist LJ Officially Recommends Against It, so far as I've heard; try OpenID. 11:45 AM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

@semanticist And Mobile will love you too. 10:52 AM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

@semanticist If you do, I will lean the fuck on whoever it is who puts them in the clients listing so we stop getting hammered. :D 10:50 AM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

3rd party, I have no idea if there's a proper iPhone client, there are probably 5 reqs to reject about as it is. :-P 08:49 AM July 27, 2008 from web

@mamajoan Perhaps a round of "Never Set the Cat on Fire" is in order? With the LF, we finally had to tell him the Mosh was his brother. 08:44 AM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to mamajoan

@semanticist Last November is too soon -- the period for reconsideration is 3 years unless it's a material difference. 08:43 AM July 27, 2008 from web in reply to semanticist

I really like Robbie Williams. The latest on my obsession-list: "Good Doctor". Have also made list of unrated, feeding into shuffle. 11:38 AM July 26, 2008 from web

Bizarre theoretical mashup: Young Men at Work Without Tights in Hats. 09:23 PM July 25, 2008 from web

suggestions bunny for whoever wants to write it up (like me later): prev/next on vgifts 09:38 PM July 24, 2008 from web

suggestions bunny: recall scheduled future vgifts. Like if the wedding doesn't happen but you bought it 2 weeks in advance. 09:50 PM July 22, 2008 from web

I keep getting these silly one-line emails. I think I've lost count. I think it's best that way. 09:04 AM July 22, 2008 from web



Things that are less fun and happy: Grandma's memorial is Sunday. Guide Dog Aunt is flying me out Sunday morning, and back in Sunday night. I am of the opinion that I should probably see if Darkside isn't up for more anime next Monday.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
