google says boredanoia isn’t a real word

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Sometimes I get bored at work, and this boredom sometimes hangs out with my mild paranoia, and together they come up with crazy ideas. Like, what if my boss and/or coworkers are secretly WAY more internet-savvy than they act? I mean, I try to keep my online exploits within the realm of things that I […]

there’s probably a lesson in this

Me (all evening): “la la la tumblr la la la internet la la la ao3 la la lol cute animal pictures everywhere” Frog In Yard: ::utter silence:: Me (much later): “bedtime!” Frog In Yard: “I CAN CROAK THE LOUDEST OF ALL FROGS EVER.” Me: “whoa” Me (tiny bit later): “it’s like… white noise, or something, […]

hey, future me!

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

It’s always a good idea to have a read on what’s important in a workplace. Take today, for instance — one of my coworkers called in this morning all, “OMG sorry, running late, funny story, see you soon.” Good point about this call: INTRIGUING! Bad point about this call: RAISES FALSE EXPECTATIONS OF HUMOR? Said […]

Olympics? or Captain America?

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Just as a heads up for those with Netflix viewing options — Captain America: The First Avenger is now available for instant view! (I don’t visit my queue that often, so I just noticed today, but I figured others might be in the same boat.) That brings us to an instant viewing queue of: Iron […]

Since tonight is the official Opening Ceremonies for the 2012 London Olympic Games, it must be time to revisit Olympics mascots! I’ll be ignoring the official 2012 mascots in favor of a few more adorable choices. (All snatched from this 2010 article on wordpress.) My perennial favorite: Super close second, and would make an adorable […]

movie review: Grosse Pointe Blank

Friday, July 27th, 2012

The first time I watched this movie I was still in high school, and watching it a second time now that I am officially past the ‘ten year reunion mark’ was pretty interesting. Still fun! I liked it (again)! Some thoughts: 1. It was fun to lol at the technology. The phones! The computers! The […]

another fic rec!

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I’m not sure what I like about this fic, but I’ve read it twice already, and now I want to read lots (and lots!) more fic about Gwen and Peter and Flash all being friends-plus and awesome together. Shared Pair, by tyrannicides Excerpt: Peter reaches out, tugs down on Flash’s sleeve. The phone is wedged […]

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

I found this fic when I was searching pinboard for “peter.parker.” (Pinboard has some interesting quirks in the search feature, I’ve noticed, or possibly I’m just not good at using it.) Things this story mentions by name: 1. tumblr 2. fangirls 3. the A-Team Things this story does not mention by name: 1. Peter Parker […]

Weather: astoundingly beautiful Work: earned bonus points at work for liking Grosse Pointe Blank … Okay, apparently I only had two ‘w’ things. Huh.
