Alas Poor Me, I Knew Me Well

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

Brain death. Paper done. Research paper done. 15-page opus research paper done. Complete and utter brain shut-down commencing. I have new things to learn today at work but I am entirely incapable. So I will sit here and stare at Doctor Who icons on LiveJournal. Yay, Doctor Ten with his GeekSpecs. What was I saying? […]

At Olive Garden, You’re a Drunken Louse!

Saturday, April 22nd, 2006

… or at least I am! Whee! This is an excellent pinot grigot. It is quite light and sorta just drops off the tongue, which is desirable in a dry, white wine. Anyhoo. YUM. ? ?

Buh?

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

The boss’ plan to save money on telemarketing by having staff members call people and ask them if they want to join our new membership program? Funniest shit I have ever heard. HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHA. AAAAHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHA. Seriously, though, we’re not fucking telemarketers. And if you thought my workplace was hostile BEFORE this, just wait ’til after. I […]

“I’m Beating Out a Samba!”

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

I don’t live in the UK, so I couldn’t have possibly seen the first episode of the second series of Doctor Who. If I had seen it, I would have enjoyed it. I would have laughed at the body-switching hilarity. I would have laughed at the “chav” comment (once I finally understood just what it […]

Da Vincied

Thursday, April 13th, 2006

Yep, finished The Da Vinci Code last night. Pretty good read. It was very Indiana Jones with all of the hidden clues and running about in foreign countries and all. Very spiff. It is obviously popular because of that archaeological adventure quality, though, as opposed to the literary quality. I mean, the writing’s okay, but […]

Not Much to Say…

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

…except for the thing that The Husband has a new job. Yay!! He will be doing PHP programming for a local mortgage company. And I mean seriously LOCAL — the office is about 10 minutes from home. I’ll be the one with the long commute now! ? Oh.? I have a presentation this evening for […]

The Doctor?!

Friday, April 7th, 2006

Hey, look, there’s? a chiropractor out there who can cure injuries by going back in time. It apparently doesn’t involve a TARDIS, but a funky, made-up word. The word is, of course, transdimensional, and is a great deal longer to write than to read.

Happy Hour

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

So, it was a happy hour. And… it was fairly happy. Except for the whole fact that nobody from my workplace showed up. Nobody from my workplace showed up even though three of them indicated they would come. Hmmph.

Professor Nebulous To The Rescue!!

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

You must listen to this. Check out the latest episode. If you get it this week you can hear “The Deptford Wives,” featuring a guest appearance by Peter Davison. (Yes, THAT Peter Davison.) This is the second episode I’ve heard, and… brilliant. So damned funny. The Professor’s flashbacks to his childhood are truly amusing. You, […]

NOT HAPPY

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

After squeeing a little in glee that “Spamalot” will be coming to Las Vegas, I re-read the Variety article, and discovered that Wynn’s has locked a deal with the show to keep it from touring in California and Arizona. Motherfracking hell’s bells. Corporate bastards, GAAAAAAAAH. ? O-kay. Breaaaathing. I didn’t want to pay the reasonable […]
