Talking to Drewface. I HAD THE COFFEE.

Must make cookie puffs at one of the general funtimes meetups.

Apparently JD needs to give me Groove Jet and Murder on the Dance Floor?

Okay, what is it with me and the exceptionally strong protein craving? ...Oh. Right. ...oh my. "Rebooting the Ovarian Operating System"? Is that what geeks who menstruate are calling it these days? (Running the monthly cronjob?)

I found my pride ear cuff when cleaning out my combined office-supplies-and-geek-stuff fabric box-drawers. This is San Francisco, so I put it on.

Latest find in the Boxes of Weird: a little nail file in the shape of a sword, complete with scabbard. That was from Grandma, and I have no idea where, before her.
I clearly also need a Box of Medical. I should create that from the Boxes of Electronics: consolidate them into things like Box of Cables, Box of Storage.

Chatter in Syne's journal about modesty, skill, and the difference between applied skill and teaching; my meta is starting to go off here

Yay chatted with the LF in between cleaning. (OMG EV, he's *younger than you*.)

Yay Glee was fun. Picked up Tif from work, ran by Trader Joe's, had dinner with the boys, watched Glee (oh, Puck, you embody the fail sometimes; oh, Finn, you do too), took Tif home.
Someone stumbled into my journal a year later and asked in comments for some updates to the Differences between LJ and DW entry; I made with the wall-o'-txt. There were a whole lot of great LJ feature upgrades during the last year, not the least of which was the a la carte userpics. I didn't go through the code tours in dw_dev as much as I might have in the process of making same. Maybe I can later.

Got in an argument with Mike last night about zombies. He thinks that I have not issued him sufficient zombies, after he read Feed. I think he may be ON FUCKING CRACK. Pleh. HOW IS THIS MY LIFE. (This is, by the way, the Mike who exists in my head and in the Cracked Phoenix trilogy. The fictional one.)

If you are out drinking with your friends, if your friends let you drink enough so that you pass out, you may need a better class of friends. (I recognize that opinions differ on this portion.)
Pranking drunken/sleeping/passed out friends is an old and noble tradition, but these pranks really ought to be basically harmless, or you need a better class of friends. (Opinions may differ here too, but I'm not actually listening to anyone's arguments from here on down.)
If your friends think that raping you with a live eel while you are passed out is funny, you really really need a better class of friends.
The guy appeared to have no idea what the problem was; the eel gnawed through his intestines, because hello, dying up some guy's ass is no fun for the eel either; the guy hung on for 10 days after being taken to the hospital but died. Animal cruelty, rape, and ... is it murder or manslaughter when you didn't mean to kill someone as the result of committing a crime, but did anyway? BETTER CLASS OF FRIENDS URGENTLY NEEDED.

Perhaps Wednesdays are now down on my biological datebook as "let's sleep the better part of 12 hours today". I curl up with a book, and WHAM.

I love what they did with "The Boy Is Mine". <3 <3 <3

Perhaps I have not mentioned it lately, but jd is effectively my little brother. I mention this because Drewface hadn't realized it.

Last night: first there was the season finale for SPN, then there was Iron Man 2.
It did not impress me positively, really; I was left with a lot of "Huh?!" here and there, though individual parts were suitably hilarious and dramatic as appropriate. I was expecting the Impala to bite it. On Twitter, shirozora and I babbled a bit about Things:
S: SHIT I CAN'T THINK UP AN ENDING. I WANT THEM TO CARRY ON LIKE WAYWARD SONS. NO ENDINGS. NADA. FUCK. THIS IS AWESOME. I'M AWESOME.
Me: DRIVING OFF INTO THE SUNSET
S: LMAO ~YESSSS
Me: "Sammy?" "Yeah?" "We got rock salt, stakes, holy water & ammo. Let's go huntin'." CARRY ON MY WAYWARD SOOONNNNNNN~ *impalasunset*
S: <3 <3 <3
Iron Man 2:
It still thrills me that I can see Russian in the wild and sometimes pick out a word or two. (Now to see if I can ever level that up...) Whenever there was Russian text onscreen I was peering at it to see if I could sound it out or read it.
The byline on one of the newspaper clippings was "Rob Downey". I giggled hardcore.
Some of Tony Stark's bad behavior was like looking at a list of things that people do when coping with disability/long-term illness and the prospect of dying soon. I don't have as almighty an embarrassment squick as I thought I did; Tony's drunken antics were an embarrassment to him but didn't actually make me cringe.
The scantily clad dancers were hilarious.
Long curls loose really is an impractical hairstyle for fighting. THINGS TO GRAB. THINGS TO TANGLE.
We all really really liked Ivan Vanko. I mean, yes, he wanted to get even with Tony Stark. Under the circumstances, wouldn't you? And yes, he was a stone-cold killer. Other than that... so he's scruffy and tattooed? Probably not a safe sort of fellow to have around, but hey! No one in the Marvel universe is!
"Make Way for Tomorrow Today" hit me like a ton of Disney-flavored bricks during the end credits, and some of the lyrics sounded ... strangely familiar. I could have sworn that I'd heard of the concept before, and I hit up the ol' search on my shiny new phone. http://support.livejournal.org/qdb/support/111 EARWORM CITY.
It turns out to be not the earworm cited in that quote, but a different one ... except written by one of the guys who wrote that. Heh.
Should probably send email to best friend inquiring about how he actually let me go on this long without watching the first Iron Man movie.

Been dogsitting. Yay dogsitting. Yay dogs. Sleep schedule = kerblooie. Those what follow Suggestions can see that I was entertaining myself. Those what follow my Twitter updates (on Twitter or the LJ archives of same) will see random dog pictures. Been afk of my primary computer & therefore not in IRC much.
Best friend's response to my perfectly sane query re: movies: "I AM IRON MAN:P" Never change, dearheart.
