I had a pretty productive day yesterday! Chris had plans (he went to the Flyers game) so I was hoping to get some work done on my dress, but that didn't happen. Mostly because I stayed too late at work again for no reason (GEE WHAT A SURPRISE.) But I still did pretty well, all the same.

I rode my scooter to work yesterday. (I should have maybe done that today as well, it doesn't seem to be raining after all.) At lunch I took the shorter walk, but I did take a walk, which was better than Monday. As aforementioned I stayed too late at work, maybe until 5:45 or 6 or so. I rode to a shopping errand. Then I rode to the library, where I a) returned one science fiction book, b) borrowed two more science fiction books which I had requested (2312 and Alif the Unseen, both of which I saw discussed/mentioned on tor.com,) and c) renewed my library card.

Then I rode home. I dilly-dallied getting out of the house because I was reading my OTHER science fiction book which I own and which I have already read, The Diamond Age. (I've had too many two-star books in a row and sometimes when that happens, I read something I already know is a four- or five-star book to get me revved up again.) Then Indiana and I went for a walk. I had intended to walk in the woods, as Chris and Indiana and I always do. But I had forgotten that when she and I head out together, she always heads for York Terrace, so that's where we went. This time we went around the little pond that's in the back of this development, but when we exited through the hole in the fence in back, we turned right instead of left so we were in woods I'd not been in before. So that was neat. Of course I was scared the whole time that I'd get yelled at by a neighboring homeowner, but I tried to be brave and it never happened anyway.

When we got home I took a shower, and then went down in the basement to do some work. (We are hopefully moving soon, and there are a lot of bullshit boxes down there that I need to organize, and a lot of stuff I need to toss.) By the time I got upstairs it was after ten and there was no way I was going to a) make dinner (egg salad?), b) work on the work I had brought home from work, or c) work on my dress, all of which I had intended. Instead I poured myself a bowl of cereal and watched a recorded episode of Project Runway. Once it was over, I immediately read the recap on tomandlorenzo.com to confirm that I had the correct opinion about the dresses.

Shortly after that ended, Chris came home and he turned on the latest episode of Game of Thrones and we both pretty instantly fell asleep. I woke up just in time for the dramatic last seconds of the ep. MAN I wish I had watched that with someone who hasn't read the books. Oh well.

So that was yesterday! We'll see how today goes. It's Wednesday, so that means lunch with Michelle! Huzzah.

The tips of my fingers feel dry. Not the rest of my hands, really, just the tips of my fingers in particular. This has never happened to me before. It is odd.

The sound effect that my phone uses to tell me that I've received a text message is the sound that Kirk's communicator makes when he flips it open. There are birds who hang out near my office that make the same sound! They keep getting my hopes up.

Overheard outside of the Franklin Institute yesterday evening:

Girl on cell: "And so if you're a stop sign, and I'm a cinder block, maybe we should just be friends."
littlewashu: (spock at his viewer)
This morning I read the phrase "a riddle wrapped in an enigma" for the zillionth time and decided to find out from whence it came. Because, you see, for a long time I thought that "a riddle wrapped in an enigma" was an inside-joke of sorts between my best friend Nancy and me in ninth grade. But I see it around all the time, so wherever it was that we had heard it, that's where everyone else had heard it too. And I wanted to remember what that was.

I googled, but it's tough, because EVERYONE uses this super-secret inside joke between me and my best-friend-from-ninth-grade Nancy these days. On the second page, however, someone said it was a Simpsons quote: Lisa says in regard to Nelson "He's not like anybody I've ever met. He's like a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a vest." Welp, mystery solved! Nancy and I sure did watch some Simpsons back in the day, I will tell you what.

However, I kept looking, and it turns out that it's orignally a Winston Churchill quote. Referring to Russia, he once said: "It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key."

So, hey, exciting! Um, for me.

Trees are turning yellow! I love Autumn.

So I'm sure that by now, you've seen Kevin Federline sitting in a chair listening to his single PopoZão. It's . . . really boring. Some people think it's funny, but more than that is just sort of boring, as the song is boring, and there are little to no lyrics, so there's not much for that piece of trash to DO except sit there grinning and bouncing.

But have you seen James Lipton reciting PopoZão on Conan O'Brien? No? Because you should check that shit out. THAT is funny.

I've been reading some Netflix reviews today.

Glengarry Glen Ross

****4 stars JG from San Diego, CA 0 out of 1 people found this review helpful.

Patel! I can't help but laugh when I see this name on a business card.
Patel? The King of Sheba could hand this guy a million dollars and he
still wouldn't sign. I have been selling for 20 years and I've never
sold to a guy named Patel. Watch this movie if you've ever considered a
career in sales but don't watch it with your spouse. See this watch?
Put the coffee down. It takes brass balls to sell real estate. If you
don't like this movie, consider yourself part brain dead. Go rent
Independance Day and lick a vanilla ice cream cone while you're
watching the Yankees and lament about the 70 degree weather, you lame
peice of s.


The Hunt for Red October

*1 star GT from El Cerrito, CA 0 out of 55 people found this review helpful.

I am disgusted and dismayed by another example where the left-wing,
elitist Hollywood intelligentsia are able to march in with a few
hundred million dollars of money and completely distort the portrayal
of the military. It is completely understanding that they chose as
their male lead the acknowledged buffoon, adulterer, and Liberal, Alec
“Panderer” Baldwin, as their “male” lead. This film is a disgrace to
our Great Country and to the great tradition of America, which is Film.


Ghostbusters 2

Ghostbusters 2 was as good as the second one. Great humor & story. A must-see.

Haha, was it Manning who said that he was getting spam from a lot of Jews? Six messages just popped up in my Yahoo account, all for unrelated crap, and they're from Finkelstein, Fishbein, Feldman, Finkelstein, Hersch, and Grossman. I KNEW the Jews were behind all this spam! I KNEW it! It all ties in with them controlling the world's banks and all. Also hating Jesus.

Due to a mention of game shows that would be fun to do in real life in [livejournal.com profile] rjwhite's journal, I was poking around, looking for Match Game stuff (oh, and it was the 70s, not the 60s: the 60s version is mostly lost, and the ones they play on GSN are from the 70s run). I found this, which is a description of Brian Billick's (coach of the Baltimore Ravens) appearance on Match Game PM in 1977.



Oh, and he sucked.

MAN it just totally stared THUNDERSTORMING and the thundercracks are HUGE: the storm opened up with one, actually, I was driving back from lunch thinking "gee, it sure is dark for 2:30, I wonder if it's supposed to rain today?" and then after in the office for a few minutes, BOOM and then RAIN and the storm's set off two car alarms, twice!

Man I love thunderstorms. I should add that to my LiveJournal interests list.

P.S. ARRRRGH THESE MOSQUITO BITES!!! I guess I should have gone to a drug store during lunch.

P.P.S. MAN I HOPE THE POWER GOES OUT SO THAT I CAN GO HOME! That would be awes.
littlewashu: (mccoy gone mad)
Oh man I have mosquito bites and they are driving me BONKERS. I counted them this morning. There are six (6) on my left leg, four (4) on my right leg, two (2) on my back, and four (4) on my arm. That's sixteen (16)! That is so many! I am dying over here! Also two on my arm are really close together so it's like a super mega bug bite.

I haven't even been outside at night recently, so there must have been a mosquito about whilst I was sleeping the other night. I am going mad!

Okay, back to work.

Bruce, my boss, just came into my office with an email he had received. It was in some crazy language. I looked at it and said "oh no, it's in Dutch!" and he asked me how I knew, and I pointed to the .nl in the address, and all the double-vowels that those wacky Dutch like to use. We like to stick with vacuum, but those mufuckers go crazy with that shit.

Altavista doesn't have Dutch-to-English, so I googled and found this and here it is:

Deze bevestiging geeft aan dat het bericht is weergegeven op het scherm van de ontvanger om 12-2-2004 =

This affirmative indicates that it bulletin has been reflected on the baffle of the recipient for 12-2-2004

Ha ha, it's just a receipt thing, but man, those crazy Dutch. Baffle. Man, will bot-translated shit ever stop being funny? I don't think so.

Man, I was trying to unwrap a Rolo with one hand whilst talking on the phone, and I was standing over the trash can so that I could drop the foil into it, and just as I was putting the Rolo up to my lips IT DROPPED OUT OF MY HAND AND FELL INTO THE TRASH!!

Man. It's a good thing I have, like, forty thousand Rolos left, or my weekend would be totally ruined.

My friend Crystal at work has a rubber band ball. She named it Bella. Because Bella means "beautiful".

Do you have hair growing out of your nose? Not the inside, I mean the outside? Like, on top, near the bottom? Because I was just talking to this guy at work, and I noticed that he has hair growing on his nose! I didn't know that happened!

This morning I had every intention of getting to work by seven (I got here by seven-thirty, but with no shower; not too bad). When my alarm clock went off at five something, I awoke to the moon BLASTING into my room. Lighting the whole damn thing up. Like "Bombs Over Baghdad", that will never, ever, ever get old: the amount of illumination that a full moon produces. It casts shadows, sharp shadows. I guess I'd be less impressed if I lived a while ago, when we humans weren't so prolific at lighting things up. To see nature/science/God do it instead . . . amazing.

By the time I drove to work, the sun had risen somewhat. The sky was a pale pale blue with streaks of pink, and the moon was still out, WHITE, nay SILVER. This weren't no pale moon that you see in the day sometimes -- this was a silver moon, hanging in a pink sky. Life is good.

When I was in Cape Cod I bought these shorts from the Orleans Army Navy store that freaking RULE. I love them. They fit me, and they're big, and have pockets. They're like capri pants in that they keep you warmer than pants, but cooler than shorts; yet they're not actually capri pants, which is nice.

I wore them a few times, then washed them. I wore them once after I washed them. The highlighter that I dropped on the crotch during the fantasy football draft didn't come out, but what the hell do I care? They're used army pants, they have sewed-up holes and shit.

I want to wear them while I make dinner tonight, but I can't find them. If anyone knows where they are, please send me some email. Thank you.

Still on the lookout for that dinner plate and parallel port cable, though I'm starting to believe Slick's theory on the dinner plate. I'm planning on confronting Dave tonight. If it wasn't him, I figure it was probably Manning.
