Things I did today:
- Walked to farmer's market, got purple potatoes and lettuce and an apple loaf-thing. (Buying local AND getting exercise! I'm hogging all the Smug Liberal Self-Righteousness, here, I'd better go eat a fast-food burger to balance things out.)
- Bought my dad's Father's Day present.
- Put together a bookshelf, and opened and arranged some toys on it. Pictures later once I get everything arranged to my liking, maybe.
- Wrote a bit on my fictrade.

Things I failed to do today:
- Make a dentist appointment.
- Write a bit on my novel.
- Cook, although in my defense my chicken thighs are still mostly frozen.

So this 'responsible adult' thing is a work in progress.

I think my memory storage fillipped or something while I was driving tonight. I was going to meet Mom for dinner and made a right turn out of my neighborhood when I should've made a left - but the scary part is I don't remember making that turn. It was like one minute I knew where I was, and the next minute I was at a stop sign that shouldn't have been there going AAAA WHUT WHERE AM I. I recovered quickly, but... it's really disconcerting to find yourself lost in the dark while you're driving. Especially if you've only been driving for two minutes.*

Is this a getting-older thing? Because I don't need the whole 'afraid to drive at night' thing when I'm not even thirty yet.

*Though I am the type of person who could get hopelessly lost two minutes from home.

So LJ is getting rid of subject lines, for no particular reason. I am now almost 100% convinced that the whole operation is run by hamsters.

I got dragged out to a comedy show on Sunday by my coworker (the same one who invited me out drinking at a lesbian bar a few weeks ago. First time doing anything of the kind). In matching penguin footie pajamas, no less. Because apparently that's a Thing with off-Renfest comedy shows. There are photos... somewhere.

Also, I wrote robots getting into a snowball fight. Happy Winterthing.

EDIT: ALMOST FORGOT. I got one of those 'your content may be copyrighted' notices from YouTube about my Beast Wars on the Dance Floor vid. I'm... stickin' it to the man? XD

...and stemming directly from this fic, I made a Formspring. For Kup. To give sex advice.

How is this my life, Internet?

Ask Professor Kup - has a few questions on it already. If I feel like it later, I'll expand some of the answers and make an LJ/post them on tf_g1_s3. Or something. I'm kinda playing this whole thing by ear.

So. Say you're putting together a "Humans 101" curriculum for fresh-off-the-shuttle Autobots. You want to give a simple overview of what we're like and what to expect, and not traumatize them too much in the process. What media - books, movies, music, etc. - do you include?

Personally, I'm fond of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but I don't think Ultra Magnus would approve. ;)

You know, if I worked at a Pokemon veterinary hospital, we wouldn't use gases or chemicals for anesthesia. We'd use a Drowzee. Or maybe a Gastly.

Not a Jigglypuff though, unless we all wore earplugs.

I'm ready. I exercised today and I'm full of energy and I'm being productive and yes. I'm gonna do it this time. I'm finally gonna do all the things I said I was gonna do and I'm finally going to remake myself into something I don't hate so much. I'm ready.

...I think the onset of spring is getting to me. Don't worry, it'll pass. Here, have a lol.

So some moron called my house at 5:30 AM Thanksgiving Day. I didn't pick up, naturally, but I thought some very naughty half-coherent curses in his direction. Turns out that moron was from the government, looking for my dad. I may have mentioned that my dad works at the Pentagon, and every time something goes pear-shaped anywhere in the world, Dad gets to run in and do his Kindergarten Teacher thing and tell everyone to calm down and have some graham crackers and a nap.

This week's crisis, if you remember, is this little snit between the Koreas. 5:30 AM Dude was trying to reach Dad in regards to holy shit, Kim Jong Il is going to Kill Us All This Time. Fortunately, he or she remembered to call Dad's cell after failing to reach him at home. Unfortunately, Dad was in the next time zone over at the time, and so he was treated to a 4:30 AM call. Dad directed the caller to call his deputy, and presumably refrained from profanity. He's a professional.

For the record, according to Dad, South shot first, but it was an accident. I now require a plane ticket to Seoul and a Korean translator who can explain to the guy who launched the accidental missile exactly why there is an enraged American girl beating him with a tire iron.

JUST FINISHED GIFT EXCHANGE FIC FUCK YEAH. Wow that's a high. I'd forgotten.

NO BETA OR ANYTHING I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THAT NONSENSE. Besides, it's already perfect.

Via Twitter: a part-time magistrate demonstrates what an utter tool he is. TLDR: dude doesn't want gay men in the military, but lesbians are okay because they can be 'cured' by male soldiers. Naturally he is being beaten with shovels by the Internet tonight, but personally I think the lolarious part is this:

He continued: “Shouldn’t the overwhelmingly straight warriors who answer their county’s call be spared the indignity of showering with other men who achieve lascivious enjoyment from the sight of those lithe naked bodies, and who may be tempted to seek more than the view?”

Yes, Joe Rehyansky. Keep railing against the irresistible temptation of those lithe... naked... bodies. Dripping wet from the shower, no doubt, highlighting toned muscles and shapely asses. Yes. Yes indeed.

Joe Rehyansky is completely heterosexual...

So, TO CELEBRATE THE HORRILARITY. Let's play a game! From [info]woekitten through [info]artoni via Twitter:

The object immediately to your left is going straight up your ass. What is it?

Oh, life. How are you more absurd than a G1 episode?

File this under 'it's too funny to be mad at.'

"Moogle," my parents said to me, "there's going to be People coming to our house on your day off to put sealant on the driveway. There will be a yellow tape line strung across the driveway to indicate that they've finished the job. Don't step on the driveway after they're done."

"Sure 'n begonia," says I.

My day off came around, I slept in 'til noon, and three hours later when I was dressed enough to go get the mail without scaring the neighbors, there was no yellow tape across the driveway and no indication that it had been worked on at all. "Huh," says I, and toddled back into the house.

Later that evening Mom picked me up to go out to dinner, and as we pulled out of the un-sealant'd driveway and headed out she expressed her concern that the driveway guys had not even called or emailed to say that they would be late/the job would not be done that day. Just then, we passed a house with a yellow tape line across its driveway. "Hey," I said, "wouldn't it be funny if they did that house by mistake?"

"Ha ha!" said Mom.

...Yes, it's exactly what you think it is. We came home to find an email: "Hey, we finished your driveway, here's a picture!" "Well, it looks great, but... that's that house down the street." "Oh, crap." And no, we hadn't sent them the wrong address - we double-checked that. ;)

So, the neighbors got a free sealant job, and we got a funny story. And no, they still haven't done our driveway yet.

(In other news, I have six ideas for NaNo. Oh gods. *face in hands*)
