Random Assassins lulz

"How long can you share minds with one who scratches and licks himself, who will roll in carrion, who goes mad when a female is in season, who thinks no further than the next meal before you accept his values as your own? Then what will you be?"

-"A guardsman?" I hazarded.


Bwahahahaha. Well played, Fitz.

Random observation whilst gorging on random movies and enjoying having the leisure to do so:

I don't care what Alexandre Dumas had to say about it: It is time for an adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo in which Mercedes is not a wet rag, a wilting flower, or a victim. Or in any other way freaking annoying.

DEVIATE FROM THE SOURCE MATERIAL, PEOPLE. Come on. Gritty reboot, pls!

(Also? Team Fernand all the way!)

Zivilisationsidiot

We had a five-hour scheduled power-out for line maintenance today - smack in the middle of the day because city council hates people who work from home, clearly. I figured I'd just keep working because well, I'd still have my computer battery and the internet, right? Until I had a duh moment because you need power for the internet :p Kept working for a while anyway, using DICTIONARIES MADE FROM BOOKS. OMG STONE AGE. When my computer battery ran out, I decided I'd use the time to do some laundry.

When I realised that I am a moron and you need power for that, I decided to do some vacuuming instead.

*bagplants*

(I eventually went to buy groceries and was mildly pleased to discover my legs do not need to be plugged into a socket to work.)

Very Important Poll Brought To You By the Die, Arachnids, Die, Die Society

What? [info]geekchick1013 wanted news and this is all I got. Blame her.

Two spiders in my bathroom are eating a third one. (It's probably their mother. Spiders suck, y'all. [info]lilithilien, are you sure you want to come here?)

Poll #5904
Open to: All, results viewable to: All

Should I:

View Answers

Squish them all now (and risk them ganging up on me)
1 (6.7%)

Wait until one of the two survivors has eaten the other one too and THEN squish the last one
0 (0.0%)

Chase them all outside without squishing
3 (20.0%)

Pretend they're not there as long as they don't come in the shower
2 (13.3%)

Entice a neighbour/mailman/passing schoolchild to do the squishing/chasing
5 (33.3%)

Catch them alive and torture them
0 (0.0%)

Leave them alone since they're only acting according to their nature and it's daft to attribute evil characteristics to them just because they're possibly eating their mother
0 (0.0%)

Wait for [info]alsha to come back in... uh, a month and a half?... to deal with (by then gargantuan freak cannibal monster) spiders then
0 (0.0%)

Fuck spiders. Just fuck 'em.
4 (26.7%)



Also, some OTHER spider has woven a humongous web against the outside of one of my kitchen windows, which is theoretically fine since I don't open that window and I don't usually see the spider, only the web, BUT, for purely creepy reasons of morbid fascination I have measured it and, while indisputably being a masterwork of structure, elegance and the amazing innovation of the animal kingdom, the freaking thing is also 70 cm in diameter. It's like the Taj Mahal of spiderwebs or something. Ick.

THIS IS A POST THAT DOES NOT CONSIST OF FIC.

However, it doesn't consist of anything else either because I've just spent an estimated 5 hours catching up on comments and the Very Meaningful Updatey Update I meant to write is clearly not going to be happening.

Instead, consider this a placeholder and a vague promise that I will attempt to be less of a slacker in my IJ/LJ habits and, y'know, keep people in the loop about My Very Exciting Life. (I KNOW. START HOLDING YOUR BREATH NOW.)

In lieu of actual news, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all you very fine people! And because it's not like this vid has been posted in a million places yet, let's have it again: Proof that the past two years were made of magic, that Ulrike Röseberg is made of complete win, and that Dennis Grabosch rocks too hard for words:

Alsha: I'm sure this has occurred to someone already but Vanessa really needs to hook up with someone called Gina.
Me: Huh?
Alsha: Giiiiina.
Me: *realising she is looking at icons with "VaNina" captions* o_O
Alsha: Wot?
Me: WHO ARE YOU?
Alsha: *snerk*

Secretly I'm just bummed I didn't think of it first.

Random tidbit of oversharing

I just poured coffee all over my cleavage *facepalms* Not because I got jolted or anything. Just, y'know, sitting still, drinking coffee. Because I apparently can't judge the volume-of-beverage/size-of-mouth ratio accurately, like, WHAT. THE. FUCK. SELF. :p

(yes, it is vital that y'all have this information.)

Hey, world:

Whatever happened to Winona Ryder?



Because I suddenly feel like she disappeared from my life while I wasn't looking, and now I'm all *SADFACE WHERE ARE ALL THOSE CRAPPY ROMANTIC COMEDIES TRYING TO BE DEEP AND ARTSY AND THE GRUNGY INDEPENDENT "WHAT DID I JUST WATCH" FILMS, AND ALSO GENERATION X IS NOW IN THEIR 40S, WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF*

Oh YT, you are full of gems

This will probably only make sense if you know that Old Spice commercial. You know, That One. And/or if your mind is very warped.



Oh Merlin and your faded sparkle of yore. Stop trying to make these little forays of charm in my general direction. I know we loved each other madly for a little while, but it's time you faced up to the fact that that's ALL IN THE PAST. You don't deserve my attention anymore. I should be with a pretty show my own age who won't cheat on me by betraying its own subtext. *does a quick Google for shows first airing in 1978* Right, that apparently means Aldi/Original Battlestar Galactica = OTP. The things you learn.

You know you're kind of out of it...

...when you mistake the pack of razor blades on the kitchen table for chewing gum.

In my defense, the packaging IS the same colour, but WTF, self.

...Yes, I did notice before I put them in my mouth, lol. That would've been taking Show a little too literally.

Because I'm a sheep...

...here's that meme that everyone and their mysterious Turkish uncle have been doing.

you are orchid
#DA70D6

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

For what it's worth, I don't see much of me in the first and last part (confident? LOL! and my outlook on life is totally pessimistic), but I'm very amused by the accuracy of the middle bit re: my very blasé attitude to time. WHY YES, I REGULARLY FIT FIVE DAYS INTO SEVEN HOURS AND THEN STRETCH ONE DAY INTO A WEEK.

Pommes!

After watching today's AWZ clip, the lovely [info]alsha and I decided that we couldn't possibly be so broke that we couldn't afford to go out and get some FRIES. So we did *bounce* Thankfully it's only the 13th even here in the future, so no one could accuse us of engaging in Valentine's Day festivities, lol.

As we sat outside eating the world's hugest serving of FRIES, we kept talking about how soon we would be famous athletes because fries is ALL THAT ATHLETES EAT. For some reason we found ourselves extremely hilarious, especially when we drove home after and the following conversation was held (for reasons unbeknownst, it was all in a heavy Russian accent):

Alsha: Good fries. Soon I am athlete.
Me: Bah. I will have COFFEE and be BEST ATHLETE EVER.
Alsha: You make fun!
Me: Noooo.
Alsha: JA.
Me: NIEMALS, mein Schatz!
Alsha: Ich glaube dich nicht.
Me: Fries and coffee! Is true magic!
Alsha: Hahahahaah, Stella is road trash.
Me: Bwahahahahahaahahaha.


In other news, my work is driving me to tears of boredom and I'm past the point where I'm even allowed to procrastinate, so now I'm contemplating murder instead. No one will notice if all the key witnesses to this huge international law suit suddenly conveniently disappear, right? Thought not. WHY IS WORK NECESSARY? WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST PRINT OUR OWN MONEY? ARRRGH.

Random musings re: current treatment of DeRo history on AWZ

You know what I find interesting? Where a while ago, it looked like the show was trying hard to make viewers forget Deniz and Roman were ever an item at all, lately there have been all sorts of references to the DeRo history... people casually mentioning that they used to be an item, the whole Bulle revival, and both of them being referred to as each other's ex-boyfriends a whole bunch of times by now. Meanwhile, the Deniz/Vanessa scene the other day was the first acknowledgement in AGES that they ever even used to date. It's a very strange juxtaposition to the early days of DeVa when that pairing was being pushed and pushed as the OTP (regardless of utter lack of romantic connection there) and DeRo kept getting dismissed as a lust/obsession/pity thing at best. So it's strange now to almost see DeRo treated as the "serious" relationship in retrospect and DeVa dismissed entirely - I know it's just wishful thinking but it's almost as if they realised that was a huge mistake and are rewriting history or something.

And I'm not saying that means a DeRo revival or anything at all - I'm just wondering if this is going anywhere in terms of Deniz's sexuality. Especially since his supposed gloominess over Stella has lost all believability lately, to the point where even Vanessa (who really hasn't spent any time with him in ages, unlike Roman) questions that he would be feeling shitty over STELLA.

In general, I am bemused but pleased over the way things have been going lately. There's still loads of crack, but whoa... good things are happening! Things that I am interested in following! Things that I wish there was more of! After almost half a year of drought, THIS IS REFRESHING AND STRANGE.
