(Old stuff: January 14, Friday) Roomba shenanigans, and the Book of Wholesome Hobbies

Came back from shopping, and R. Daneel was charged again. Set him to Roombulating. Had to run away from IRC for a few moments because he'd started chewing on someone else's charger cable, and was attempting to run away with it.

[00:19] [personal profile] azurelunatic OH GOD R DANEEL
[00:19] [personal profile] azurelunatic BRB
[00:19] [personal profile] cme ?
[00:21] [personal profile] azurelunatic it's like toddlers, in a way.
[00:21] [personal profile] azurelunatic you think you have made the area sufficiently safe, and then you set them loose, and you're keeping half an eye on them and chatting with your friends
[00:22] [personal profile] azurelunatic and suddenly it's R. DANEEL, STOP EATING THAT ELECTRICAL CORD THIS INSTANT
[00:22] [personal profile] azurelunatic YOU NAUGHTY ROOMBA
[00:23] [personal profile] cme oooooooooooooooh
[00:23] [personal profile] cme yes! I have had this roomba experience as well!

[00:24] [personal profile] azurelunatic: (and R. Daneel started eating electrical cords. :D )
[00:24] [personal profile] niqaeli: a cannibal, huh?
[00:24] [personal profile] niqaeli: *g*
[00:25] [personal profile] azurelunatic: I won't start fearing that until he noms a bluetooth headset or something
[00:26] [personal profile] niqaeli: heh
[00:26] [personal profile] niqaeli: that's fair
[00:27] [personal profile] azurelunatic: (because, I mean, it's not like he doesn't try to eat his OWN power cord.)
[00:27] [personal profile] niqaeli: heh.
[00:42] * [personal profile] azurelunatic has pinned him in my closet-hallway
[00:46] [personal profile] niqaeli: aw, no more freedom for roomba?
[00:47] [personal profile] azurelunatic: Less freedom, more deep vacuuming of the closet.
[00:47] [personal profile] niqaeli: ahhh
[00:48] [personal profile] azurelunatic: (I got a bathrobe. the bathrobe is black microplush. my apartment is carpeted in industrial beige.)
[01:11] [personal profile] azurelunatic: aww, he's herded all my shoes into a pile.

An excerpt from The Book of Wholesome Hobbies That Denise Has Forbidden Her Volunteers From Taking Part In:
  • Deleting every single comment that an ex-friend has left in your journal and marking it as spam. (It's the marking it as spam part that's forbidden. Delete to your heart's content.)
  • Feeding the trolls.
  • Hanging out with that guy who points AK-47s at you.
  • Making a large number of completely outlandish suggestions in [site community profile] dw_suggestions for the sole purpose of making the person handling the moderation queue crack up.

On Julian Assange ending sentences with two spaces after the period, me: "Of all the things one could judge him for, that sounds amazingly nitpicking/petty. I'm not above a good spelling flame, but that's sort of like telling George W. Bush his ears are big."

suggestion: allow moderator to report-as-spam in a comm as well, given that they can do it from the moderation queue?

I learned about spontaneous pistachio combustion.
