War Games

enochfallax was discussing my wearing of men's camo shorts this evening..

talk of war games and sexual references from his locked post - but he's okay with me quoting:

"I said to her, "one of these days we're going to have some 'War Games' ;)" to which she replied, "I think so :) shall we play a game?"

"Now at this point, I thought about being a little creative and replied back with, "How about a game of Global Thermonuclear Hot Pants," which she obviously liked, but not as much as me then saying, "The only winning move is to not pull out too soon."

Okay - so it still makes me giggle, mkay?

upstart_crow is moving, and has decided to express her displeasure with the beauty of song. Definite highlight of the post:

la la la
I hate moving
la la la
because it involves boxes
la la la
that don't hold the things
they did when I moved here

because somehow my posessions
have increased their molecular weight
or the boxes have shrunk
and that makes me feel
like i'm in the b-movie version of house of leaves
or drunk
or maybe both

How to Tell Your Child's Soul is Imperiled by being a Goth

This is from a flocked post by surreality, quoted with permission:

Here is a sample:
2. Wears band and/or rock t-shirts.
Damn you, Tori Amos, you succubus siren of the damned.

5. Shows an interest in piercings or tattoos.
*glances down* I guess that qualifies as an interest.

7. Associates with other people that dress, act or speak eccentrically.
Ok, folks. Raise your hand if you don't dress, act, or speak eccentrically. Bueller? No one? Thought so.

enigel on the geekiness of having a Stargate Atlantis coundown on her website.

Nah, a real geek would have a table with the countdown in several timezones, accompanied by an estimate of the arrival time of the torrent file depending on the environment variables. In binary.

Pringles Meta Meta

nakedblueninja explains how she is saved from the pringles monster here

Fie! I exalt in the saving glory of allergies! I am no more pure than the rest of you by choice. Unfortunately the necessity of remaining alive FORCES a righteousness of non-pringle-eating upon me.

...How I envy your torment and temptation to sin...

I feel like metaquoting a "celebrity" is probably a horrible thing to do, but I about spit milk on my keyboard when I read this. If you're not reading Alton Brown...you should be!



Dear Tom Cruise,

Your lack of belief in the existence of clinical depression tells me one thing: you didn’t spend $10. to see War Of The Worlds. If vitamins can possibly help me out of this spiraling funk, please let me know which ones. Dinos? Pebbles? Freds?

Please, I’m crying out for help.

Fun with TSA

QWP from a f-locked post in puzzld1's journal:

"The only thing that sucked was airport security. Logan worse than Philly. Hips set off metal detectors. Had 2 very businesslike security guards get to 3rd base with me. No dinner, no kiss."

'House' family-bonding: good for what ails you.

In an effort to do some sisterly bonding, I've gotten my sister into House. So for the past two weeks, we've spent Tuesday nights watching House re-runs. Which is fine. Except yesterday, she came home in hives because of some allergic reaction from something we've yet to determine. Probably alkaseltzer. I dunno.

Anyway, the hives are icky and itchy and have spread a bit, and my sister is convinced she is dying. Or has leprosy, like that kid on House. Or is allergic to copper and has copper inside her, like that nun on House. Come tomorrow's episode, she'll probably have that too. And she's very vocal about being just like a patient on House. >.<

I took her to buy some cortisone cream, and I figure if that doesn't work she'll just have to see a doctor. Preferably one with a cane.

But now I'm going to sleep, because I promised to wake up early and make her pancakes. Some House shaped ones.

What started out as a lovely rant about lying over here, quickly degenerated to this...

niamh_bronwyn on security...

The US Government wants to use the London bombings as an excuse to beef up US security on the transit systems and to track peoples every move. This means fewer freedoms. So they want us to think of England as an excuse for fewer freedoms.

I keep getting the impression that as they fuck us over we're supposed to lie back and think of England.

A better way to live

Quoted with permission, from a friends-locked journal. mezzogiorno recounts the experience of meeting her housemate's dad from her time in France:

I recollected a funny occurrence from a previous day. This day was a long while ago, and it involves Christelle’s dad, Josèphe. This was the first time I met him, we were sitting in the lounge together, by ourselves, and I was trying to think of something to say. He had this loud accordion music on, so I said “So, do you like accordion music then?” He then said to me, “what? This shit? No, I play this to annoy the neighbours,” then proceeded to turn it up and bang on the wall with a broom. I tell you, I’m not living right. I should be living like that.

cannons_at_dawn has a plan.

·Face up to the fact that you are far too dependent on alcohol. But don't, of course, consider doing anything about it.

·Consider getting life. Think better of it almost immediately

Whole post here and well worth reading, as its all funny.

And verily he did say unto you...

In response to the Postal Service being Bigger than Jesus here.

Being as she had written the letter, and that the letter was good in her sight, she took care to fold it and place it carefully within an envelope; for the POST hath commanded envelopes be used for mail. Having placed the letter within the Holy Envelope, yea, she did commence to write upon the front an address, such that the Sending may be efficient and accurate, and that the letter may make its way to the ordained recipient. Being that the Letter was Addressed, she placed upon the front a Stamp, the holy sticky seal of the POST. And, as the Stamp had been attached, and the POST was appeased, the Letter was placed within the Box of POST, so that its delivery may be swift.

I swear active_apathy is not the only one I quote. She's just really funny... all of the time.

From a friends-locked post by bloodslash, quoted with permission.

"I think I'm gonna get the new HP book at midnight like I do every year a new one comes out. Of course, I could always get it from the library. There's always a bunch of copies at the library. 'cause even the "I can't afford food!" people save up to buy this book. They sell their collected coke cans and stop buying toilet paper CAUSE ONLY BAD FANS DON'T BUY THE BOOK."

If this were "Overheard in NYC," there'd be a witty comment here. It's not.

howardtayler confronts his addiction to chocolate and milk products.

I looked at the Carnation chocolate malted milk powder, and at the Nesquik. We ran out of both yesterday, and I thought that a tall glass milk doped with either of those would be very tasty.

I didn't buy either one. I resisted the temptation. The only thing I bought that wasn't on the list was balsamic vinegar.

Balsamic vinegar is really nasty when you mix it with milk.

I think I'm turning into one of those older-middle-aged women on the Ditropan commercials who are all like, "I can't believe I'm talking about this, but sometimes...I don't make it to the bathroom. I just pee all over myself like some kind of Sim who's starving to death in a cage in the front yard and then stand there and cry about it. Why am I having this problem?"
