Yes, but does the shell disappear?

I love me some Taco Bell. I really, really do. But is it just me or are they running out of names for things? Granted it's all the same six or seven ingredients anyway, just rearranged, but damn.

The menu is starting to sound like a badly-dubbed anime. "Spicy Chicken Crunchwrap Supreme, MAKE-UP!" *glittery transformation scene*

The Tinkerbelle panties

Quoted with permission from an entry in inked2x's LJ, the story of a little girl, a traffic cop, and a pair of Tinkerbelle panties. Link is here.

My daughter Brenna has a pair of Tinkerbelle panties that she loves. In fact when she is wearing them, she even has a “Tinkerbelle Panty” song that she sings. She lives by the credo of “It’s a good day – because I am wearing Tinkerbelle Panties!” She will tell all kinds of people this information - just in case they were wondering why she was so happy.

A couple of days ago we were coming home after a long day of work for me and daycare for her. I was in a hurry to get home, eat supper and just relax in front of the television. Bren was in the backseat singing the “Tinkerbelle Panty” song as the scenery whizzed by. It was a warm day and a nice breeze was blowing in our open windows. With each, quickly passing mile, I could feel myself relaxing a little more. Ahhh …. almost there. Home, sweet home, here we come.

Before I knew it, I saw a pair of flashing red lights in my rearview mirror. Uh, oh – I was being busted for speeding. As I pulled off onto the shoulder, I carefully, explained to Brenna that I was “in trouble” and she should be quiet while the police officer came over to talk to me.

Soon enough a rather young cop walked up to the car – I would guess it was his first or second year on the job. After taking my license and insurance information, he proceeded to chew me out for speeding with my daughter in the car. I haven’t been lectured like that since I got caught sneaking in at night when I was a teenager! This guy really let me have it! Thankfully, Brenna sat quietly in car seat through the entire process. I was going to have some explaining to do when I got home.

Embarrassed and red-faced, I sort of slouched in my seat and mumbled “thanks” when he told me he wasn’t going to give me a ticket. As he was walking back to his car, a clear little voice piped up from the back of the car, floated out the window and said, “Mommy, that man should wear Tinkerbelle panties ‘cause he sure is in a bad mood!”

The cop stop mid-stride, one foot slightly in the air, but did not turn around. He carefully put his foot down and just stood there for a minute before quickly walking back to his car.

I just sort of drove away.

Who knows? Maybe he did go out and by Tinkerbelle panties …

clynne shakes her broom at some hoodlums:

Sometimes the way language changes annoys me. For example, when I tell a guy that we can "hook up" later, I don't enjoy sounding like I may have propositioned him. Also, it irks me incredibly every time I have to respond to the question "Do you like to party?" with "no."

Dammit, when I was a young 'un, "hook up" didn't mean "engage in sexual intercourse" it meant "meet." And "party" meant "enjoy the company of others, if not actually in attendance at a planned social gathering, then at least at a reasonable facsimile thereof" not "smoke pot."

2. What do my friends really think of me?
Rolling Stones - Ruby Tuesday
Interpretation: My friends see me as unconstrainable and alluring. Also female. May want to look into that.

3. How can I make people like me more?
Gorillaz - Dracula
Interpretation: I WILL BECOME A VAMPIRE, YES. Everyone will like me then. And, being immortal, I'll have time to make friends with everyone. Brilliant!

4. What does my crush truly think of me?
Super Smash Brothers Melee Hyrule Temple Rock
Interpretation: My crush wants to literally crush me with her special attacks in the ruins of the Hyrule Temple. Ain't love grand?

I laughed over the whole meme.
Silent Hill - Cybil - Fighter

cryticalvision contemplates state service.

I have come to the decision that being a state worker is like being a goldfish with a view of the bathroom. You spend your whole day swimming in circles being admired by people and all the while you're staring at that bathroom and hoping the cat gets you before the toilet does.

Context. Locked, but QWP, because the cat has been looking far too snide lately.

5am wake-up call!

septicidal (a "human bean") got a wake-up call this morning:
So, at any rate, my sleep was disturbed around five in the morning by Julie, who decided that she needed to crush me with her love. I finally opened my eyes after the twenty pounds of feline on my chest woke me, and her head was right in my face. She then proceeded to lick my nose and breathe in my eyes. If it hadn't been five in the morning, and my oxygen hadn't been restricted, it would have been adorable. The cat then proceeded to not leave me alone. After about ten minutes of pushing her off my chest only to have her pin me on my side or cut off circulation to my feet, I finally got out of bed and saw that her kibble dish was empty. Now, most cats would cry and sit by their dishes when hungry. But not Julie. No, Julie's first thought at seeing an empty kibble dish is to go, "OH! I MUST NOW CRUSH MY BEAN WITH LOVE."
QWP (permission granted via telephone) because that's how I roll these days.
