Zombie Grandmas make for the WORST sex.

- iguanasdefuego, here, in reply to a post in bad_sex. (The original post is pretty sad actually.) I was going to get permission, but according to the rules since it's a public entry I don't need it. If I do, I'll delete and wait for permission.

Wee! I finally lost my metaquote virginity! Hey, where's the champagne and rose petals? So much for romance.

rather belated post

alas_a_llama posts the "5 Guilty Pleasures" meme...

2) Rocks. People keep saying that rocks are boring but they aren't! You can put them into little Soap-esque communities, with the Sedimentaries and the Metamorphic being a bit leery with each other and the Igneous rocks just sort of standing there being a bit bemused at the whole situation really. It's like Romeo and Juliet.

With rocks.

daggart dislikes waste in his AIM conversations, and expresses his frustration in this public post:

Is one really not enough?

Must you have them ALL?

Seriously, there are people in India going without because you use up half of the worlds supply of question marks in the course of a single IM.

seanchaidh has some theories about what might happen now that Canada's Conservative Party has won a small minority victory:

4) Green Party and NDP merge and create a new labour and environment orientated party called the Grass is Greener on the Other Side party. Or something.

So pyrotech_c3h8 posted pictures on his LJ of his old desk at T-Mobile. The last picture and resulting commentary was amusing:

Yeppers, that is an actual functioning train set. Notice the ambulance waiting patiently to cross. Sometimes the ambulance gets sick of waiting and tries to race the train at the crossing. Sometimes he does not make it, and the patient in the back (Six year old boy named Jimmy who drank too much Yoohoo and antifreeze attempting to make a Slurpee at home) is horribly maimed and his badly lacerated corpse lands on picnickers nearby. Also notice that there are little tiny army troops lying in ambush behind several of the trees. This is not one of your better railroad crossings.

Teh drama!

Inspired by the limeybean situation, offstagelines_ reports the, er, "death" of missandrony in MsA's lj:

"Sadly, during the operation, the good doctors accidentally replaced Jen’s heart with a Starbucks espresso machine. Horrific, I know, but true. *hysterical crying fit*

Jen, being a brave little woman who is a beacon of hope for all humanity, went bravely into world with only caffeine pumping through her veins. After about twenty seconds of attempting to survive this way, it became clear that one cannot live with an espresso machine… where a heart should be. This is when Jen called me.


Needless to say, I burst into tears. Could it be true, that Jen was dying like woah, whilst on the cellular phone with moi!?"

The whole thing is hilarious, as is missandrony's matching report of offstagelines_' death.

And now for something completely different.

A subject that is as intruiging as it is dangerous.


They go ridin' along past me on my walk back from campus, on their little bikes, with their cute little hairdos, and their cute black high school uniforms, and their cute little behinds...

We attended a women's safety seminar today.

But perhaps they should've held one for cute Japanese high school boys.

And warned them about me.

Calgon, take me away...

treaclelilly recalls her previous thoughts on baths now that she's gotten a stressful job and has become a bath adict here.

"I recall, when I was 25, pointing and laughing at these stress-puppy mommies in those Calgon commericals helplessly looking about as their world of responsibilities piled up around them. They'd look to the heavens, not to God, or Buddha, or Ganesh, or Zeus, an any kind of spiritual being. They were calling to, nay, I would even say PRAYING, to that box of Calgon to "take me away"."

*laughs and prays for a bath like the stress-puppy mommy that she is*

Oh gee, I'm so sorry mister. I didn't realize that you actually wanted to get somewhere. And here we all are, being rude, just hanging out in the road, blocking your way. You should have said something sooner. Of course, we will all just move aside so that you can get through. We were just sitting here for fun anyways.

Public post, but QWP anyways.

Priorities in being fascinated

Med student fortuna_juvat, here:

Our bodies can auto-regulate the pH of our blood plasma to a minute degree, just by controlling how quickly we breathe, and yet America is fascinated by sweaty men throwing variously shaped balls to other sweaty men, or through arbitrarily assigned spaces.

One way or the other, it made me think. QWP.
Edited to add: The rest of the entry is about how particularly Superbowl is disrupting her daily life; hence "America" there. For my part, "people" in general would apply just as well. But quote-editing is usually Not Groovy.

Admit it, we'd all love to say this . . .

Overheard -

"Ma'am, I understand your frustration... Yes, I promise you, I am working on the problem... You'd like to speak to my supervisor? ... ma'am, I own the company... Okay the only being higher than me would be God... I'm sorry, no, I don't have his number..."

Conversation with my boss' boss, while we were reviewing a document:

Him: "Cockpit Monitor Technician"? What's that?

[speaking at the same time]
Me: No idea, but it sounds cool. That's what I want to be when I grow up.
Him: Oh, I see, they just mean a knob twiddler...

[pause as we each take in what the other has said]
Me: knob twiddler...
Him: ...and that's what you want to be when you grow up?

At this point the document review was abandoned due to the inability of any of the participants to speak. :-)

cleolinda has a lump on her head:
[I]t's very likely a form of bursitis--an inflammation of a sac near a joint or moving part (and it is kind of close to my neck) caused by strain or damage. My doctor thinks that this, and my intestinal catastrophes on Saturday, were caused by the whole thing about Mom losing/leaving her job...upset and anxiety always finds a way to express itself, with me anyway, and since I don't really have or know any other way to deal with it mentally, I end up with, like, one of the seven plagues of Egypt. I am dead serious. It used to be massive upset stomachs--or maybe it was headaches; I can't remember which came first. Whichever one it was, I got that under control after several years, and then the other one kicked up as my go-to physical response. Then I got that under control, and what did I start getting? Boils. I am not freakin' kidding. And I'm a firstborn, too, so you can see why I'm hoping this doesn't get any more Biblical than it has to.

drachenfach has been having bouts of dizziness recently, and while it is sort of mean to laugh, she shared this gem in tmi_chix ::

Unfortunately, whilst the rest of my body seemed quite happy to comply with the 'Stop working! Fall over!' orders from up above, my bladder didn't get the message, and carried on quite merrily with its alotted task.

Let's wrassle

This was posted in ut_austin (community for University of Texas at Austin students) by corpuscular:

So my brother and I wrestle a lot.
When in school, there is no brother to wrestle with.

Anyone feel like meeting up and wrestling with me? ^_^

It will most likely be the case that I will be the one beaten up. =D

I'm a female. and would really prefer a girl I guess.

Perhaps I shouldn't laugh...

lukadia isn't feeling well... but must he be so amusing about it in his post? QWP, the whole thing is great. But, here's my favorite part:

"Hello, body! I am Kawaii Peach Yogurt-Chan, champion of health and nutrition! I hope we will become very good friends! ^_________^"

Q: How did you get impaled through the neck six times, scott_lynch?

A: When Kitten jumps on Human's lap, it is because Kitten is exercising her immutable right to tap the keyboard until Human's manuscript is reformatted into Mandarin Chinese.

Although it may be cute to make Kitten appear to dance vigorously to DJ Tiesto, Kitten does not appreciate primate music and thus she slices like a ninja, cuts like a razor blade, so fast-- other DJs say "damn."

QWP! rickmangled, on trying to explain satellite radio to Ptolemy of Egypt.

"Well these tiiiny particles travel in invisible waves through the air... No, not demons, photons. No, Photon is not the name of a demon. No! It's not even a class of demon! It's a particle! No, you can't speak to the radio. Yes, it's talking to you, you just can't talk back. No, not even if you bow."

oh, the context of it all.
