progress update

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

– on getting a new computer: still at the fantasizing and coveting stage – on getting back to linking all the stories I read: I’ve promised myself that when I get a new computer, I’ll start a delicious page for them all, so… see above? – on my January first quarter first half of the […]

Work LOLs

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Now that I have a day off, I can contemplate the hilarity that work has brought to my life over the past four days. We just started this new program, right? To save money on bags save the planet. If a customer brings their own bag, or just doesn’t take a bag, they get a […]

Reading Links

Monday, March 29th, 2010

I was puttering around over at AO3 last night and found Your Bottle is Empty (But Your Glass Has Been Filled), by jjtaylor. Which is basically a story in which Sam has emo!angst, Gabriel has problems of his own to worry about, and Chuck must want to wash out his brain with soap sometimes. As […]

Movie Review: How to Train Your Dragon

Monday, March 29th, 2010

1. The repeated use of the “You just gestured at *all* of me” made me laugh. 2. Interesting realization: after all the trouble I had with the “falling” concept in “Up,” I didn’t have that sense at all in this movie, even when he was actually free-falling towards the ocean. Apparently my subconscious trusts dragons […]

Movie Review: Beauty Shop

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

Why I Watched It: Someone recommended it to me. Since previous movies recommended to me have included “Fight Club” (it’s a really angry movie, at least the two minutes I saw) and “Rocky Horror Picture Show” (*really* weird; I kept feeling like I was missing whatever made it a cult classic),”Beauty Shop” was pretty good. […]

Reaction Post to Supernatural ep 5.15

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

I used to call Supernatural my favorite show I don’t watch. Now that I’m watching it, I’ve got to say it’s dropping in the ranks. The fandom is fun though. I feel like I should follow the grand tradition of SPN viewers and write some sort of scathing review of the last episode. All I […]

Why online journaling works better than email*

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

(*for people who don’t actually like talking with others) The trouble with email is that it’s usually just a faster, easier way to write letters or call on the phone. Same with instant messaging. If you email or message someone infrequently, every time you write you have to re-initiate the conversation: Hi, how are you, […]

Goals: how to weird up your life with them

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

I love goals. If I never set goals for myself, it’s possible I’d spend days at a time napping. But I tend to react to goals with single-minded determination, followed by irrationally stubborn refusal. Plus I tend to come up with conflicting goals. (For instance, “save money” along with “get new computer” — so far […]

Things I Missed While I Wasn’t Posting

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

3/22 The one-month pre-anniversary (good time to start a countdown!) to Earth Day! 4/22/10 will be the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, an event which should be celebrated with glee and decorum! (or glee and cupcakes, or possibly glee and napping!) 3/23 Not really sure what I missed here. The chance to celebrate a palindrome […]

Fanfic: my anti-drug

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I’ve just spent the last, let’s see, four and a half hours? reading off the Apocalyptic Big Bang Challenge (aka apocafic big bang) page. Lots of zombies. Plus some of the *weirdest* (and I mean that in a good way!) apocalypse!fic I’ve *ever* read. Candyland apocafic? Lisa Frank apocafic? This is WTF FTW, no lie.
