therealycats is reviewing the Queer as Folk finale in a locked entry, and her review...well, needs a bit of editing, by her own admission: (Quoted with permission.)

For those of you wondering, yes I did attend the Anne Rice Center for People Who Can't Write Good and Want to Learn to Do Other Stuff Like Turning Characters Into Pod People Good Too. I'll write a more coherent reaction later.

"Especially lesbians. Every where i look, everything i say, and everything I read eventually deteriorates into attractive lesbians." - ameinias has a dilemma that I'm finding it hard to be sympathetic over. F-locked. Quoted with demands.

A late report from Comic-Con
agent may is unimpressed
trishalynn wrote in metaquotes
lampbane went to Comic Con and sat in on the Adult Swim panel, where people mostly asked questions of the guys from "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," "Robot Chicken" and this show she doesn't like called "Tom Goes to the Mayor." But finally, the Mayor guys did get a question:

Audience Member: "So, this question is for Tim and Eric, since people don't seem to be asking you questions... what's the creative process behind each episode... how do you write an episode?"
Tim and Eric: "Is this a pity question?"
Audience Member: "Does it matter? Answer the question."

On Writing Essays While Tired...

elfie_chan wrote in metaquotes
My dear friend, katiefoolery, wrote an entry on writing an essay. In the comments, she replies to someone talking about bad study habits:

"I used to do all of that - apart from falling asleep on the keyboard. Although, that would have been most amusing:

Hehe! You can't refute that."

I was amused by the idea of someone trying to refute that.

From the wonderful brain of active_apathy:

...there was a Dianetics ad on TV earlier. I was amused by this, since they're selling it as a self-help book. A self-help book by an author who famously claimed that the easiest way to make money is to start a religion. I'm considering offering an alternate title - maybe Jumping On Couches For Dummies.

If a libertine of your choice walked over and sat down next to you, what do you imagine your immedeate reaction would be?

If it were Gary, I'd stare a moment and say "You're that chap from the Libertines! I saw you play two years ago..." and offer to buy him a pint.

If it were John, I'd say "Hello Mr Hassall. Please cheer up." And offer to buy him a pint.

If it were Peter, I wouldn't be able to say anything. I'd think about kissing him and offering to eradicate his demons with love and music, but I'd probably just sit there staring at him until he'd get freaked out and ask me why I looked like Dobby the house-elf. To which I'd reply "I love you, and I can save you. Now please stop hitting journalists, cancel this bloody documentary, and have some time off to come camping with me. I'll change your whole perspective on life!!" Well, I'd probably say something even stupider, but my imagination is limited.
And I'd offer to buy him a pint.

If it were Carl, I would make a point of not talking about Pete, unless I got him drunk enough. Poor guy must get sick of seeing his ex-bandmate plastered all over the tabloids like some bimbo. Then, when he breaks down in tears, I'd pat his head and say "There there, Carlos. There there. Have some more Rohyp--er, ice-cream."
And offer to buy him a pint.


Context: They're a band, I doubt this works as well if you don't know of them, but I found it amusing anyway. From her anon meme.

_redpanda_ wrote in metaquotes
A friend has given me the opportunity of working on a freelance job. It's creating a logo for a music shop, and he wants it to be reasonably cool and contemporary, "something I wouldn't be ashamed to have on my t-shirt if I were going to a gig". Then he told me what font the boss wants me to use: Copperplate Gothic.

The only font known to wear sock suspenders. Another designer at my work said it's the font, that at font parties, turns up looking like an accountant, sporting a sensible tie, and it's always left in the corner without anyone to talk to.

There comes a time in every woman's life when she must ask herself the deep, important questions: Who am I? Where am I going with all this? How did I get a shard of glass in my brassiere?

The comments are fun, too.

JK: ... Erm.
WB: Fuck off Woman, we own this now, ya know.

chaosvizier, in ljdq, comments here on the question of whether future posts should be longer or shorter than they are at the moment.


"As always, we're trying out different strategies. It's a question of coming up with a happy medium. A happy funny medium. Like Whoopi Goldberg in "Ghost". Well, maybe a little funnier."

Orignial post here after thestarfissure bangs up her foot.

I'm hobbling around the house like I'm Fred Sanford. What's scary is that before that revelation hit me, I had the extreme urge to walk up to someone and say "You big dummy." Since I have had the revelation, however, I hobble around with the theme song from the show stuck in my head.

Yes, my brother is insane. As proof, he brought me a "present" today from the vet he works at. What was it? A dead newborn kitten in a plastic container filled with formaldehyde. It's his way of saying "I love you."

jonnorthwood: Huzzah for PetLand training. It was years ago, but it served me well in later years when I was breeding both fish and birds.

strange1andie: you were breeding fish and birds?

gingerweasel: Well, where did you think flying fish came from?

cloudlessnights has been having some trouble creating a Sim Dobby.

...Shrinking down adult sims with cheats would make them smaller, but not thinner, so Dobby'd look as if he'd been raiding the Malfoys' fridge when no-one was looking.

I think the poster missed the fact that Sam CARRIED FRODO'S DELERIOUS LIMP BODY AND THE RING UP A FRIGGIN MOUNTAIN OF DOOM OVER BURNING ROCK AND ASH WITH BARE FEET.

If that's not some kind of superpower, I need a new dictionary.
