So yeah, there was a power outage this evening. I lit candles, ate crackers, and read.
I have the ending theme for Red Dwarf in my head now. I blame ... actually, I'm not sure who to blame. It is probably Rimmer's fault. Or perhaps Lal! Yes! I blame Lal!

Feeling somewhat better, but my throat's still sore from crying.
11:12 PM 2/21/2010
The other half of the recent loquaciousness is the full-sized keyboard, which is hella easy to type on. The netbook is good for reading and for toting around with me, not for typing at much closer to the speed of thought.

Not technically awake yet. My new sleeping schedule seems to be 6 hours out, 2 hours up, another 3 hours out. :(

Have awakened and emerged from my lair of blankets.
12:40 PM 2/22/2010
Debating breakfast. I believe I have a jar of Instant Crud should I fail to find an appropriate breakfast. Alas. (But it's better than NO breakfast.)
1:02 PM 2/22/2010
Sourdough bread with artichoke spread it is! (Pity about the trace amounts of walnut in it.)
1:03 PM 2/22/2010
Things Miss Lunatic Should Not Eat:
Bananas. They peel off the insides of her mouth.
Walnuts. They peel off the insides of her mouth.
Tomatoes in too large a quantity: (prepared) Too acidic. (fresh) Weird things happen in mouth.
Cooked green, yellow, or red bell peppers: they taste disgusting and get their flavor all over everything.
Cilantro: it tastes like stink bugs smell. (Its presence in Mexican cookery is reluctantly tolerated.)
1:32 PM 2/22/2010
There are other things besides Lube/Not-Lube that require my attention today.
1:48 PM 2/22/2010
To test: does the contextual hover not work when it's closed-membership? (LJ, comms, possible bug)
2:25 PM 2/22/2010
Fics not to write: "The Boy from Durrr" (it is clearly a modern, highschool AU of bits of the Foreigner series, but only the title has popped out at me)
2:27 PM 2/22/2010
Things I must do: get UPS before attempting to work with Ye Olde Desktop, as I mistrust the cleanliness of this apartment's power, and last night was all kinds of lolno. (Though it would be nice to have one for the router too.)
3:05 PM 2/22/2010
Oh dear, one of the Mortal Instruments baby fangirls has got me started again. I'm afraid I'm turning into the Bitter Old Fangirl on that list. If it's a male/male relationship, *there is no "girl" in it* ... well, unless someone *prefers* to be addressed as female, but that's a whole different ball of wax there, isn't it.
3:55 PM 2/22/2010
Showers are one of the most awesome things on earth.
Have you seen it in a fic? Have you got some on your dick? Do you use it here or there? NO! You should not use it anywhere! (PM re:lube/not)
(In PM in IRC, giving context for Lube/Not-Lube)
5:20 PM 2/22/2010
Dying of laughter forever: apparently when you tweet about things, they can wind up on companies' internal mailing lists. (Lube/Not-Lube is eternally hilarious.)
6:00 PM 2/22/2010
Dishes time! Also Mortal Kombat soundtrack time.
6:44 PM 2/22/2010
Apparently my body is considering ramen acceptable food today. This is good. (Yesterday was not a good day for "this is acceptable food" and "this is what is on hand".)
7:00 PM 2/22/2010
Gloves make a difference in doing dishes. Just so you know.
7:11 PM 2/22/2010
God, fangirls. Have your browsers no spellcheck?
10:24 PM 2/22/2010
Back, with UPS.
10:52 PM 2/22/2010
12:26 AM 2/23/2010
Have I mentioned lately how I love my hair? Well, I love my hair. It's so soft and dark and sproingy, with just the right amount of wave. I call it "the impossible hair", because sometimes it is, but I really really like it.
12:37 AM 2/23/2010
The power button fell off my TomTom today. I have to start carrying a stylus around with him in order to make him power up and down. (Well, he'll power down when he runs out of battery, but he talks to you in the meantime.) Wouldn't want to send him in for repairs, as San Francisco is *hard*. (Let's not go shopping; see above about *hard*.)
1:21 AM 2/23/2010
Back from rebooting laptop.
1:24 AM 2/23/2010
Why do I have "I'M ON A BOAT" stuck in my head? Unlike "The Pretender", this is inexplicable from recent inputs. It's just the intro. (I'm running this, let's go.)
(also, Shawn, there are things I actually don't forgive you for, not fully, not every day.)
2:02 AM 2/23/2010
Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the People out there.
11:08 AM 2/23/2010
Does my mother-loving router object to traceroutes? Or to l-stat.livejournal.com?
11:14 AM 2/23/2010
Ahhh, it is objecting to the whole internet at the moment, I see.
11:36 AM 2/23/2010
I have to not traceroute, because that is ANGERING MY FUCKING ROUTER.
12:11 PM 2/23/2010
I like having my stove clock set to Arizona time.
12:42 PM 2/23/2010
Perhaps having my head in the Foreigner books is somewhat ... disconcerting ... to my set of human morals.
1:42 PM 2/23/2010
Do not need Death Cab for Cutie in my head. Do not need to meet anyone on the Equinox. If I did, however, it would make sense to meet them halfway, or at least meet them at a shared agreeable destination.
Semi-related, had a (genial) argument with a Bunns&Noodle employee last night. I held that an Edward Cullen umbrella was ridiculous. This evolved into a discussion of whether or not Edward Cullen was a creepy stalker. (His perspective: if the stalker is poor, it's stalking. If you're rich, it's romantic.) (My perspective: so he's *in her bedroom*, *without her knowledge or permission*, *watching* her *sleep*.)
1:50 PM 2/23/2010
Lunch has been obtained.
3:11 PM 2/23/2010
OK Go CD has finished; time for some Tubthumping.
8:29 PM 2/23/2010
Mathsie and #dw are bonding. *proud*
9:00 PM 2/23/2010
Am resourcefully using twist-ties to keep my mouse and keyboard cables out of the ever-loving way.
9:17 PM 2/23/2010
