I think my bathroom shares a ventilation shaft with someone's kitchen, because a couple of different times I've gone in there and smelled cooking smells like fresh onions or garlic for no reason at all.

I really shouldn't think on this too much, because that probably means this whole time I've been ruining people's dinners every time I've had to drop the kids off at the pool.

Condoms are for Sissies

Here, in comments to a post discussing condom use in fanfic when the characters are in LURVE, mrv3000 offers this useful info:



You see when LOVE or, at the minimum, a very special relationship is involved, you don't have to worry about STDs or babies. Well, you *will* get pregnant, but that's exactly what you want when you're in love.

*nods sagely*

I have a very special relationship with my coffee maker and didn't use a filter. I'm expecting twin lattes in June.

mistoline shares her wit in reguards to "South Dakota's state senate voted on Wednesday for an abortion ban aimed at giving the conservative-tilting Supreme Court an opening to overturn rulings granting women the right to the procedure."  <lj-cut>http://reuters.myway.com/article/20060223/2006-02-23T004814Z_01_N22531791_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-RIGHTS-ABORTION-DC.html <lj-cut>

Not allowing abortion, they should go check for alternative possibilities:

mprice rips apart a fanfic.

This made my morning. Huzzah wit!

A matching thong is frowned at and stomped on vigorously on the floor
Finally, a realistic opinion of a thong!

in a moment of temporary insanity.
Sure, ruin my hopes.

...

This world was one she hadn't been to in awhile, a world without staples and forms and bosses and stupid pinstripe skirts and Victoria's Secret push up without padding bras and matching thongs to stomp upon vigorously.
A world without clothes! Woo Hoo!

From the highly intelligent vivian_shaw, a much better way to tell someone to listen up.

"Let me give you all a little freshly-sliced piece of advice, my hand-glazed ceramic dipping bowls, my little rose-cut radishes of eager attentiveness, my lemon twists of learning. Let me filet it thinly and drape it over an oval mound of vinegared rice, that you may consume it in one delicious and instructive bite."

Context, for those who like that sort of thing. QWP. We should all worship her.

Snow!1!!!11one! etc.

It's snowing in various parts of the UK right now, leading to this comment from lou_brush in livejournal_uk:

" It is SNOW, people. SNOW. Frozen ice. It will not dissolve you, more is the fucking pity.
A grown nation wetting its pants over a quarter-inch of slush, good LORD."

Found here, although that is the entire post.

libba_bray contemplates this season's American Idol contestants here.

And then there's Ace. Um, yeah. His name is Ace. And he's a hippie boy from Boulder. And I honestly wouldn't care if he sang Kum-ba-yah in pig latin while sucking on helium. He just needs to stand there. Thank you, TV gods.

In Yet Another Harry Potter Wank over at fandom_wank, a thread pops up about a crazy fan who cited Christian scripture to defend H/Hr. itsirtou quips:
Jesus: Uh...God...I just thought it should be brought to your attention that some dumbshit down on earth is using your holy word to defend a Harry Potter ship.

God: Harry Potter?

Jesus: It's um. It's a children's book about kids who do magic and stuff.

God: ...ship?

Jesus: These people think that two people in the book should be together even though it isn't what the author said...so they're using Corinthians to uh, defend it. You know, the "love is patient" or whatever. Look, I wouldn't have even told you but Michael the Archangel is really pissed because he's all "R/Hr 4EVA" and then he said I had to tell you so you could smite the person who said it.

God: *facepalm*

*snort* Well, it made me laugh, anyway...

Alphabet Soup!

Now, on some communities, people have a habit of referring to various parties in stories by initials, ostensibly to protect thier identities.

This can be a pain to read though, as you get lengthy posts with stuff like "And then B went over to see G, who wasn't there so he went to J's house, and found D there, who said that G was out on a date with T"

WTF? mock_the_stupid has already banned the practice... but it still persists in other communities.

Which brings us our quote :)


I'm tired of trying to keep track of all these letters of the alphabet. What we need is a set of standardised pseudonyms. Then people posting on polyamory could just populate the drama of their life from a cast like this:

Alice is the mono partner of Bob, who's also in a relationship with Charles, who's shagging Dina and Edward, who are both fluidbonded with one another and with Frank, who's the ex of Gertrude, who's a 24/7 slave to Heidi, who swings-but-isn't-in-a-relationship with Ian, who's married to Jane, who has permission to sleep with Kevin, who just impregnated Lily, who hasn't yet mentioned this to her husband Michael, who wants to know whether he should get into a relationship with Nicholas, who's already in a so-poly-they-don't-even-have-sex relationship with Oliver, who's running a con along with Prudence, who says she's fine but gets passive-aggressively jealous of Quentin, who doesn't care that he's technically committing statutory rape by sleeping with Raven, who's stalking Simon, who gets pissed off (even though he asked for advice) when people tell him to dump Tanya, who's cheating on him with Ursula, who hasn't mentioned the STD she caught from Victor, who doesn't think it counts as cheating that he's cybering with Xandra, whose other personality is Yasmin, who's about (for the fifth time) to leave Zeke, who's not taking his meds.

Imagine how much more efficient the discussions would be. None of this 'three pages of explication' rubbish, because we already know how everybody relates to one another. Just "Hi, I'm Simon, my girlfriend's Tanya." "Dump her." "No way."
