It’s a love/hate thing.

TV… oh how I loathe you. TV… oh how I love you. You know, my Fall TV schedule used to be fairly manageable. Until people shared pilots with me and now I’m all torn. TORN! I haven’t watched them all yet (books won out in the Holding Rae’s Interest competition this weekend) but so far [...]

Maps that make you go… WOW!

Now that spadada‘s officially posted about it over at cloud_watchers, I think it’s ok for me share it with you. Check out this map. Those are all the places where DVD Donations have been made by the VM DVD Drive. That’s just insanely impressive and amazing. I don’t care if you’re unhappy with the show [...]

I don’t think we should be lying to sick children.

Oh. HAHAHAHA. I just fell off my stool. Rev Camden is on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and I have no idea why that is so f-ing funny but it totally is… Plus, they are making fun of MySpace and words can not express how much I love this show for that fact alone.

Come Sail Away

Soooo, hey, hi. I’m back, sunburn and all. The cruise was awesome. Weather was perfect the whole time and we only hit a patch of rough water the last night but even that was at night so I was able to just go to bed when I got a little nauseous. I’d definitely recommend Royal [...]

My poor cats…

I just went batshit crazy on my cats. Now the two boy cats won’t come near me. It’s killing Frank as he has to be near me (as in almost touching) at all times. He is laying on the other side of the room, behind a door, staring mournfully at me. It’s just… GRRR. They [...]

Filled with the flying shards of a better tomorrow…

Dear LJ friends, I need to admit something to you. I? Talk to myself. Not little chit chat here and there either. Full on conversations and, occasionally, arguments. I’m not sure what compelled me to share but there ya go… Confessional Thursday. So, hey, I’m totally not digging this no liquids on planes things. I [...]

A Tale of Three Birth Certificates & One Certificate of Survival

About four years ago, I had to apply for secret security clearance as a part of my job. Not only is it nothing special, it is a big pain in the butt. Lots of paperwork and recalling details that you’d never thought you’d need to know, ten years worth of details like neighbors who knew [...]

Best one yet…

Q: Why was the picture sent to jail? A: It was framed.

I was born, right?

My posts seem to be lacking in substance lately. Eh, this is not the one that will break the trend. I can’t breathe. I’d blame it on my allergies, which have been horrendous lately, but it’s really due to all the dust I just stirred up scouring my house for my birth certificate. I didn’t [...]

Decisions.

I’m the worst person in the world at making decisions. Especially when it’s a war between what my gut is telling me to do and what my more cautious head is telling me to do. Grrrrrrr. ETA: I started this post ages ago and, in the meantime, I went with my gut. Eeep! Does anyone [...]

I want to talk to that cat.

I have a big ole’ crush on Psych. No, I take that back. I have moved past the crushing stage straight to adoration and love. Lots and lots of L O V E! Tonight’s show made me laugh so many times that I am having to re-watch it immediately. Fridays @ 10PM on USA – [...]

Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

Haha. Not even 15 minutes into the comp and Will jumps off. He’s so transparent, always wants to control those in power but never wants to be in power himself. Come on, folks, he’s doing the same thing he did in his season!! Anyway. Will is out and he got a rotten egg. I’ll continue [...]

I’m not giving out no f-ing plot points!

After Comic-Con Report, Part II. This part? She’s long. Friday dawned early. To be fair, it really wasn’t all that early for me. I was awake at 6-ish but, as far as my brain was concerned, I had slept in longer than I had all week. Seanan woke up not long after and we attempted [...]

The fl-fla-flames on the side of my face…

Excuse me while I get my rant on very briefly. If you’re posting a spoiler… DO NOT POST WHAT THE SPOILER DIRECTLY REFERS TO IN THE FUCKING SUBJECT LINE OF YOUR POST!!!!!!!!! OMG. I hate that shit. I’ve been so good at avoiding the spoilers. I managed to resist the temptation to look at this [...]

The day mass transit and I did not get along.

After Comic-Con Report, Part I. So. Comic-Con. I should just stop there, no? I actually do want to talk about it but it gets all jumbled up in my brain and then my brain go BOOOM! and trust me on this, it’s not so much fun to clean brain goop out of your clothes. I [...]
