Time:02:12 pm

OH god yes, this Cracked article about Doctor Who is perfect. Doctor Who is a philosophy, and an utterly brilliant one at that.

Subject:KNITTING COMMISSIONS
Time:05:13 pm
HEY GUYS.
SO, A SKILL I HAVE: IT IS KNITTING. I AM POOR. BUT I AM AN AWESOME KNITTER! In fact, I could make ANYTHING YOU HAVE EVER CONCEIVED OF as a kitting project! I am opening up to everyone for commissions! Some examples of work:

Nerd hats!
   

cute hats!
 

Other nerdy things!
   

Scarfy things!
 

AND SO MUCH MORE-- mittens, wristwarmers, sweaters even!.

Prices always negotiable, usually around $20 for hats and working up from there. Shipping is pretty low and I can probably absorb it into the set price. Upcharges for fancier yarns that I'd need to order, etc etc etc--- MESSAGE ME! Or comment here! I CAN MAKE YOU ANYTHING!

Time:08:10 am
OK, by now I am sure most of y'all know about this whole "crossposting comments to fb and twitter" hullaballoo. If you dont, here's the FAQ link and while I agree with the "raar what are you crazy livejournal, there is a reason my name on LJ is not my IRL name! get other people away from here, not draw more attention!!" thing, I trust that NONE of my friends, that is, ANYONE WHO CAN READ THIS is dumb or vain enough to post comments that you make on my livejournal entries to a public forum. But just in case you were unaware this new mess exists, there's the info you need.


Also, seriously. Don't do it.

Ok. I would like to bring this to your attention.

Has our society become so dumb that we need to do this? Really?


I think my "favorite" part is:
She said: "This is one of a number of twists and challenges included that we believe existing fans will enjoy and will also enable younger fans and families to get involved."

CHALLENGE? If the challege is for me to NOT RIOT AT YOU, well, yes, that is a challenge.

Subject:meme ganked from flora
Time:10:38 pm
It's a simple meme: When you see this, post a poem in your journal.

Villanelle

Every day our bodies separate,
exploded torn and dazed.
Not understanding what we celebrate

we grope through languages and hesitate
and touch each other, speechless and amazed;
and every day our bodies separate

us further from our planned, deliberate
ironic lives. I am afraid, disphased,
not understanding what we celebrate

when our fused limbs and lips communicate
the unlettered power we have raised.
Every day our bodies’ separate

routines are harder to perpetuate.
In wordless darkness we learn wordless praise,
not understanding what we celebrate;

wake to ourselves, exhausted, in the late
morning as the wind tears off the haze,
not understanding how we celebrate
our bodies. Every day we separate.

–Marilyn Hacker

Hokay so I was responding to oddishly's comment on my last post and then it became a totally postable rant, so:

I DO NOT KNOW PROTOCOL IN THE FACEBOOK AGE, PLZ HELP.

So I gave a boy my number, and w00t all over, he texted me by 1130 the next morning, so I clearly made an impression. so he asked my name, for to add on fbook, which SIGH, I am aware is the norm for EVERYONE, ok. so we like, texted a bit because he failed to find me because I apparently I was unsearchable, but since we friended each other, I have not heard anything from him at all. So, like, what? Uhm do we just do the silently stalking thing for a while? Am I not to expect him to call because we are in fbook contact? Am I supposed to call/not call him based on the fact of that I should, idk, text instead? Why do we have phones to make calls to have conversations and then have entire conversations in texts? Honestly, I am actually less flustered by whatever this guy may or may not think of me, and more by this un-protocol overload! Am I supposed to tweet at him?? IDK GUYS. Wasn't there a time when people just followed that "you call her after three days" thing instead of having to decide which of like 5 different means of engagement you are supposed to engage in someone with? SRSLY WHUT DUDES?

Hey, school? Here's an idea. How's about maybe you stagger registration, so that not EVERY FUCKING PERSON IN SCHOOL is trying to register at the SAME TIME (6AM no less) and makes your system crash so that my schedule ends up as shit. Seriously, thanks LOADS for the 6 hour gap between classes that I've got on Thursdays. You're the BEST, school!

Update: 9:36 AM

OH HEY AND TODAY HATES ME.
I went to work, as I do on thursdays, to find the showroom locked and empty. This has actually happened before, so I called people.... to no avail. Not a single person from the main office was reachable by cell. Also, I havnt gotten any emails from the office for like, a week or more, including when I was working from home last thurs and didnt get any responses to emails with files that I sent out.
Wtfffffffffff??

Ganked from, I dunno, everyone?

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So ask me something you want to know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

Subject:Dear humanity (and specifically the scientific community),
Time:09:23 am
Can we please stop using the term "theory of evolution"? Like, I know in this term "theory" is a scientific word meaning "we basically proved this, conclusively, through years or research and EPIC FUCKTONS of evidence but it happened superlong ago and is constantly happening now and we don't know Absolutely Everything about it so we still use this word THEORY" but to a layman (read: religious nut) it means OMG IT IS A THEORY THERE IS ROOM FOR DOUBT WHUT WHUT I DO NOT BELIEVE ALL YOUR ARTEFACTS AND CARBON DATING THE WORLD IS ONLY 6000 YEARS OLD!

Seriously. It's not a fucking theory. Science, come up with a better word that means "we proved this, seriously" You are confusing the THIRD of americans who've firmly reject the notion of evolution.

....Yo, I *have* to get out of this country. You hear we won't be showing that Charles Darwin film because of our religious whackjobs?

That's what I want. I need to not let life get in the way right now. But I also need for love to not get in the way of life. But I am sick of who I am the way I am. I can't keep running away from things. I need to try. And this is too good a thing to throw away just because I think maybe this might not work in the future, well, I mean, it's kind of working pretty well now. And we have gotten so much better and we have come so far. And maybe it won't work in the future. But right now it's a really good thing, and I've got TIME. I mean, if we were not getting better, if we were not going anywhere, if we were not becoming better people, that's a reason. But we ARE moving. And right now our paths don't need to diverge. Maybe in a month, a year, they will. And that's OK too. I will still be young and able to do all the selfish little things I have passing yearnings for now. But right NOW, I dunno, it seems kind of silly to toss away the biggest, strongest thing in my life.

As one commenter put it: "This is like a very well-written love letter to the HP fandom"

I had an epic HP related dream last night that involved large boats, maybe, and H/D slash (in which I may or may not have been Harry and in which Draco totally wore glasses and was super hot) and was full of great plot bunnies and I was totally awake for at least a half hour before my alarm went off during which I lay remembering details of the dream so that I could post them, and now I don't anymore. It was really interesting and good, too. Damnit. I think it involved Draco contuniung to dissapear and reappear in Dracoish fashion, but also being caring and tender sometimes? And there were adventurous things happening too and I'm pretty sure Ron and Hermione were there too. Not magical adventurous things, I think, but normaler ones. Fuck. It was GOOD too! I swear! Grrrrr.
