from catvalente:

A spider got away last night, escaping the sheer unadulterated power of a hurtled copy of War and Peace. But I killed a different one (small and black vs. large and brown) today with a copy of The Diamond Sutra. The squishing power of the Buddha is not to be denied.

From gizmodo:
Good news for those people who actually use iTunes Music Store -- in celebration of the approaching sale of the 100 millionth song, Apple will be giving away 50 special 20GB iPods to the purchasers of every 100,000th song. If you're the lucky person who purchases the song number 100 million, you'll win a 17-inch Powerbook, a 40GB iPod, and a gift certificate for 10,000 iTunes downloads. Oh, and your own Celebrity playlist, too, which I recommend you fill up entirely with Hall & Oates, or at least Oates.
oh holy shit

'skoch' is always funny.

Just to recap, she's reviewing a self-insertion fic of a modern human girl who's pulled into the world of The Lord of the Rings... yeah. She named herself 'Pennemiriel' by squishing two elvish words in a poem together, just to give you an idea of what the whole thing's like.

"Also, how does Bilbo's nightshirt fit her? They're called halflings, not just-a-skoch-smallerlings."

Doesn't matter what the parents are as long as they care and support...

A comment supporting a post made by thebratqueen:

If kids have people around them who love them, support them and make sure they aren't little axe murderers, it doesn't matter if those people are straight, gay, blue, red or small triangular aliens. - moonlettuce

If you read the rest of her comment, well, it's a hit and run deepness that interested me enough to join this community and post, because of its innocent sincerity and insight.

What is decent and right? Love, being happy, and making happiness.

A comment made on a post by lordsaviour

Ever since I was a little a boy I've known "what's decent and right" to be loving someone, and that meant male, female, whatever, and being happy, and making others happy. I do that the best I can. I've had a hard life, but it's getting better, and dammit, I try my best to do what's decent and right; to love and be happy and make happiness. - prettywhendying

While reading through the old entries of lordsaviour, and increasing slash worthy journal that might or might not be fictional, I have encountered two things.
1. The horror that is the_real_fluz or _fluz_
2. Intelligent and/or snarky comments that reflutes said horror above.

Inspite of 1, I reccommend people who have time to look through that post anyways for the sake of 2.

Ah yes, summer jobs:

In job complaining news: I fucking hate it when people come up and are like, "Make me blahblah coffee, like at Starbucks." And I think to myself, "I've never been to fucking Starbucks" but I politely ask them what that particular drink consists of, giving them a list of options based on their vague description. And when I make it, half are like, "This is better than Starbucks!" And half are like "THIS is a 'blahblah'!?" And I think to myself, "I DON'T KNOW! YOU TELL ME!!"
