Xmas blues

Ugh. So sick.

So Rob came down with the crud last week and was feeling pretty bad on Thursday. I guess today is my Thursday, because ugh. I hope so anyway, because I don’t want to feel worse. :-(   Judging by Rob, I’ve got another 4 days before I feel human. Hope the cough doesn’t get worse.

In other news, the Slanket I got for Giftmas is wonderful for “too sick to be up but not sick enough to be comatose.” Yay for warm and cuddly!

Which reminds me: FUCK the War on (some) Drugs! Useless assholes, I had to go to 4 pharmacies before I found one that carried the real Nyquil. On christmas eve! In the rain!

No wonder I’m sick.

No jury in the world….

I’m trying to prepare for my oral interview in Spanish tomorrow, fighting my own rampant avoidance behaviour when the following conversation occurs:

Rob: Want me to put headphones on while you’re studying?
Me: Yes, please, if you don’t mind.
Rob: No problemo.
Me: (absently) No probleMA.
Rob: So what you’re saying is that all problems are female?
Me: No, words that end in “ma”….. shut up.
Rob: (snickers)


Some are more equal than others

GU Comics has a problem in WoW…

Early yesterday Taks received and email from Blizzard (not one of the bogus phishing ones) that her account had been suspended because of gold selling style activity on one of her characters. I rushed to change her character’s rank in Bloody Plunder so that she didn’t have open access to the guild bank. I then started working on her behalf to reclaim the account. Several hours later she was informed that her account, after investigation, had been banned. There went our carefully planned gaming night.

Long story short, I went to my community contact at Blizzard explained the situation and asked for help. They got everything taken care of this morning and we’ve added an authenticator to Taks’ account.

Y’know, hackers suck and all, and I’m glad the GU guy got it taken care of, but this really kinda pisses me off. If MY WoW account (that I don’t have because it would take over my life and I have homework to do) got hacked like this I’m betting the Blizzard response would be “So sad, too bad”.


Do ALL the things!

Yesterday I should have gone to a history lecture that would have netted me 5 extra credit points for just attending – no paper or ‘nuthin. I didn’t go because I stayed up until 2 am in order to buy an autographed Abney Park cd. Priorities – I has them!

I regret NOTHING! I did better on the second test anyway, so I’ll just write a paper for some EC.

Today though, today I do ALL THE THINGS! See, a list:

  • Get up / shower / dressed (set the bar low!)
  • Scoop litter boxes (note to self: need 1 more)
  • Get stroganoff crockpot going
  • Clean counter so I can get stroganoff going
  • Laundry Day! (That’s the plan / rule the world / you and me)
  • Read chapter for geology

  • Pay bills
  • Read chapter and sources for western civ.

Tomorrow, tomorrow…. I love ya, tomorrow…

Something’s rotten in Denmark

Here’s some interesting info on that “I Write Like” meme that’s been going around. Now, I don’t see the text he’s referring to; I guess it’s been changed. When I go to results, there’s a pop up for a “newsletter” on how to “become a better writer”.

Combined with the utter bullshit results below, I say it smells.
