serenity!

(no subject)

Today is a bad day. Today is such a bad day that were I a brutal South American dictator, it's the sort of day when I would execute all political prisoners, slaughter my cabinet in their beds, install replacements for them only if those replacements were in either my sexual or drug-addled thrall, declare martial law, imprison the leaders of various non-violent student protest groups, and threaten a neighboring country by sabre rattling and raping its leader's daughter and/or cat.

Unfortunately, I do not have the fate of millions of people in my hands, so I will attempt to distract myself from the excruciating pain by unwinding all the paperclips in the office. So there. Take that, Universal Paperclip Company! That'll teach you to mess with Generalissimo Resmiranda.

In regards to people who INTERRUPT YOU WHILE YOU'RE READING...

As for the Interfering Idiots, just wait a nice, long stretch after they speak (just enough that they're about to repeat the question), then look up with a bright smile and say, "Oh, I'm sorry, did you say something? I was just so absorbed in my book. It's wonderful!" Brighten the smile just enough that they know they're dealing with an Insane Bibliophile and go back to reading. Ignore all future conversational attempts, unless it's something like, "Your hair's on fire!" That's an important one. *nods solemnly*

Tea! Penguin! (doyle on JF), penguin say tea?

But is she gay now?

Quoth anxietygrrl:

"I think I'm starting to deeply resent the Harry Potter. I ranted about this on the phone with a friend last night, and she sympathized, while still being a HP fan. She did say, though, that OotP was kind of pissing her off, especially Harry's pissy sullenness and self-absorption. The next book, she said, needs to have swearing. I said, if things keep going as they appear to have been from what I've read around LJ, the next book will probably feature Harry having lots of degrading sex and Hermione descending into some kind of half-assed drug addiction metaphor.

"And then, eventually, Ron loses an eye."
