|Now I've graduated from snorting fentanyl off stripper parts...
...to mainlining IV crack into my eyeballs. Yep, that's right, I bought WoW.
Anyone here play Alliance on Trollbane? I'm Shalondra there. My alt will be a Tauren tank, but I haven't made him yet.
Funny WoW story: Well, for some reason I decided to jump off the waterfall at Wellspring River, thinking it wouldn't be fatal. It was. And because I forgot about the Hearthstone, I had to swim all the way around fucking Night Elf Island as a ghost...TWICE before I finally got out of that predicament.
As for everything else, it's going strangely smooth. Nothing's going wrong at all. I'm amazed, too. Oh, and if anyone has a Fox's Pizza Den
near you, eat there, for it kicks the major chains' asses eight ways to Sunday.

|Guess who just got a new computer?
That would be me.
It's really, really awesome. Damn, this 19" LCD monitor is just crazy huge and Vista actually fixes some of the annoying shit about Windows XP (such as actually having a clock accessory).
Also, I think I've gotten hooked on
snorting the purest fentanyl off stripper tits
EVE Online. It really didn't like my old machine that well, but on this one it plays just fine...dammit. I'll have to actually buy it now.

|And I abandon this journal.
I have reason to suspect that someone has filched my password and would be able to get it if I changed it, and it's 110% my fault.
I'll make a new one, and you all will know it's me because I've added all of you. The new one will be about the current coding project I'm working on.
For now, I really need to hide from the Internet for a week or so. I'm getting a new compy next weekend anyway, most likely, so the next thing I do online will be with a PC that has more than 4 USB ports, a logical motherboard design, a capture card that can handle ATSC, and probably also a drawing pad.

|Shampoo so good it makes you want to pet yourself.
Seriously, Head and Shoulders Refresh
is the fucking BOMB. Between the 104-degree heat (it's 92 outside now and it's dark already, that's how damn hot it is in Alabama) and all the crap in the air at the guardrail factory, my hair should be forming an auto-fro like it usually does. It's not at all. However, it's NOT recommended for crotchal hair. Unless you're one of those folks who gets off to Icy Hot on the wedding tackle, DON'T DO IT. If you are, DON'T TELL ME.
Also, with LJ trampling on free speech left and right and deciding that shota fanart that wasn't even really shota deserves a permanent ban of a permanent account because it's "illegal" (which it's not. Maybe hyper-realistic depictions of what appear to be actual kids getting molested is, but anime/comic style art is not) while pro-ana, zoophilia, meth head, etc. comms (all of which condone activities that are illegal or explicitly against the TOS) are all cool, where do the good folks who read me plan to migrate to? Most of the sites that use LJ source are kinda lame, WordPress is pure shit, and I will never in a bazillion years consider MySpace, so don't even suggest it.

|RIP Weekly World News.
Apparently the next issue of that august bastion of respectable journalism will be the last. Yeah, it hadn't been what it was since the Clontz brothers (who definitely rank among my writing idols) bailed and I'm a little surprised it made it six years without them, but it was still hilarious and better than that snooty oh-so-indie college rag the Onion. Phil Hendrie retired, Sasha Baron Cohen is still in hiding from the ninety bazillion people who want to sue him and/or kick his ass over the Borat movie, and now the WWN's gone. Where am I going to get good carnytastic humor that doesn't have its head six feet up its ass(Yeah, I'm talking about you, Colbert)?
Also, I'll really miss the crossword puzzle. I do that fucker every week. I guess I could subscribe to the British tab they get it from, though.

|Oh man oh man oh man did I have an awesome time last night.
You know how I said I was going to lay serious pipe in someone I'd never see again? Scratch that last bit. Dana was AWESOME and we are totally going out again. I never would have dreamed in a million billion fucktillion years that I'd run into to someone who was good, giving, and game for all my kinks at a motherfucking Harry Potter book release. God damn, we practically rocked my old fishing cabin to the GROUND. Booker's + Gray Goose + Old Raj + Sea Wynde + Grand Marnier + genuine Vermont maple syrup + Whole Earth organic cola (hey, what's the point of making a $4000 Hat if you're going to skimp on the cola.) = MAGIC HANGOVER-FREE SEX SAUCE. Maybe it should be renamed the Felis Felicis, because that's how it makes one feel.
Protest was a wash. Benham got arrested yesterday (WTF Birmingham cops? I know you're a little touchy about people protesting All Woman because people have tried to blow it up twice, but there was no violence there, just a little friendly shouting. He wasn't even reading any particularly lurid verses, just some words of encouragement) and everyone was quiet and just ready to go back home.
I've changed my mind about the book(which I bought at a grocery store near the cabin before I even went to Books-A-Million, BTW) after we started reading it aloud in our fake accents and giggling. It's really, really good if you ignore the epilogue and don't take it seriously at all. I'll take my cousin's wife the copy I bought for her (she couldn't go due to having just had a kid a week ago) after I get some sleep. I need sleep. Current Mood: indescribable

|And now I venture into the fray.
Yep, about to leave to go stand in line to score a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I'm got my fake British accent and my best snarky douche face on, so, yours truly is about to score some BPD nerd girl poontang. I'm just doing it for the (hopefully legal) chicks, I really could care less about the book, seeing as how "the carpet book" is most likely the real deal and it's an utter pile of shit. Besides, no one would be standing in line at my local Food World, seeing as how it's a <i>motherfucking grocery store</i> and ordinarily doesn't sell any books other than horoscopes and quickie true-crime books (Maybe there's one about Benoit already, I mean, all they'd have to do was read the special editions of the WON and translate from Meltzer-speak to proper English grammar) and I could buy it there at 6 am tomorrow morning with no hassle whatsoever. And I will do exactly that after I lay major pipe in someone I'll never see again. Did I mention I did this when the last book (which I downloaded illegally and never really bought) came out and the sex was amazing?
After that, I'll probably go protest at the abortion clinic (Flip Benham's in town! YAY!) and scream at some innocent women for a few hours.
Then I'm getting some top-shelf booze and mixing me a pitcher of $4000 Hats while writing my next post. Thank God for spellcheck.

|Serious question, please respond.
I am apparently completely fucking wrong about something and a completely reprehensible person for being wrong about it. I'm trying to phrase this as neutrally as possible so as to hide which position I take here so everyone will give me an honest answer.
If a group of activists dedicated to a cause engage in actions that are offensive to an entire religion (even the practitioners of said religion that support them), wouldn't it logically follow that the practitioners of this religion (which is not generally sympathetic to the cause) would become more unsympathetic to the cause as a result and the ones who are already most strongly opposed to the cause would gain credibility because these people did the offensive things that they always said they wanted to do?
And do in-group/out-group dynamics really matter in this situation? Is it any more or less acceptable for a group without power to offend a group with power in this fashion as it would be for a group with power to offend a group without power?
I want to know what people think on this. Am I really an absolute idiot?

|Just a thought I had while looking at a bunch of old porn...
The tanning booth was the greatest innovation in the history of boobies. You can always tell the American or British girls in classic pre-Nam porn from the Continental types because the former have hideous tan lines across the bottom half of their cleavage. God bless Friedrich Wolff.
That is all.

|God damn, work is kicking my ass.
It's apparently peak international guardrail season (for those of you who don't know, I dropped the school gig because a much better offer came along at the local guardrail factory and now my conscience is much cleaner), so I'll be working at least 56 hours a week for the next two months.
56 hours a week of smelling nothing but the garlic that comes in the barrels we have to pack the spare parts into, of having to deal with those lazies that put the polyester anchoring kits together, of running out of really common-ass parts that they should keep billions of because we use so damn many of them, of listening to my whiny supervisor (Anyone who's watched this season of Survivor will get it when I say he sounds just like Anthony. Gra-a-ating.) and the psycho-paranoid guy behind me (Gee, and I thought I was psycho-paranoid. I'm not even in his ballpark)...At least the girls in assembly are cute.
Also, does anyone here live near a station that shows Jeopardy at 5e/4c/3m/2p? If so, I saw it Friday. The only one I could find that matches the time was KFOR in Oklahoma City, which is as its calls state on channel 4, and this was on 2, so no clue. Wasn't tropo as neither of the non-PBS 2s close enough to be caught that way even air Jeopardy, so it was my first E-skip of '07 and I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT FUCKING WAS! AAARRRGGGGH!

|The saga of Dingo the Indestructible Dog, Chapter 2.
Well, Dingo got shot Thursday by someone who was illegally hunting on our property. They were aiming for his heart. They missed it and any other important bits, so he just got a great big hole in his shoulder.
Now, four days later, he's pretty much fine except for having stitches and being on more drugs than Kurt Angle. Having the big dumbass back where he belongs was a great Christmas present.
At this rate, he's going to be like the dog my aunt used to have that had one ear, three legs, no tail, and half a dick due to various misadventures...Eventually, that one got hit by a truck two too many times.

|The John Piper Unsuggester Game!
Nifty little thing, this.
Basically, the Unsuggester tells you what books LibraryThing users who liked a particular book didn't like. The works of John Piper (who's actually one of the few Baptist writers who haven't gone completely off the deep end) seem to appear a lot. Like links to the transhumanism page at Wikipedia.
So, this is the game. Pick a book, any book, and see how many links in the chain it takes before you run acriss a book with a John Piper work as its number 1 Unsuggestion (Double points if it's "Don't Waste Your Life"). Like so:
"High Fidelity" - Nick Hornby
"Systematic theology: an introduction to biblical doctrine" - Wayne Grudem
"The Bell Jar" - Sylvia Plath
Back to Systematic Theology, not a winner.
"Atlas Shrugged" - Ayn Rand
"Where's My Cow?" - Terry Pratchett
"Into Thin Air" - Jon Krakauer
"Briar's Book" - Tamora Pierce
"A Confederacy of Dunces" - John Kennedy Toole
"Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello To Courtship" - Joshua Harris
"Good Omens" - Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
"The Passion of Jesus Christ" - John Piper
(I've read all of those besides the courtship book. Thank God that 19th Century throwback shit didn't become popular until after I got laid.)

|Finally. An alternative station around here with the potential to not suck!
Citadel Broadcasting finally pulled the plug on the moldering corpse of the X @ 100.5 (which, to be fair, was a good station before they got their grubby mitts on it two frequencies and five years ago) earlier this week. It's now broadcasting the "old fat white guys blabbing about how much Mike Shula sucked" format from AM 690.
This left a gaping hole in the market...for about 5 days. Clear Channel (whose management here, unlike every other city in which they operate, doesn't fellate blue-ass baboons) flipped their black gospel station that no one listened to. It is now 105.5 The Vulcan (which is redundant, because we all know there's only one of him.) I'm sure the few downtown grannies who actually preferred Hallelujah 105.5 over 610 WAGG lost it when their clock radios blasted rock this morning.

|BLANEY WINS! W00t!
Do you realize how long I've waited to use that post title? Yeah, it took a lot of wrecks and pit strategy and other freakiness to make it happen, but still, Dave Blaney finally won a NASCAR race. Here's hoping he pulls off the sweep tomorrow with a Cup win.
And Harvick clinched the Busch title with four races to go, which also took a lot of freakiness to happen, but he would have easily clinched next week anyway. Dude has OWNED in Busch in 2006.
|Dream building identification question...
In my dream tonight, I was on a magical bus piloted by Samuel L. Jackson (no snakes on the bus, BTW. Yeah, I thought it was going to go there, too.) going through what allegedly was the red-light district of Dallas. Some of you were there, too, so maybe you did in fact have the same dream and know what the fuck I'm talking about.
I saw a building that was supposed to be a cathedral (whether Catholic, Orthodox, or Episcopalian, no clue) that had an extremely gaudy roof design. It had all these golden plumes sticking out of one side that made the place kind of look like it was on fire until you got closer and noticed the shiny.
Where the heck is this building in reality? I know it's not really in Dallas, but I'm sure it exists somewhere, but I can't place it. Current Mood: weird

|A Meme, Hooray!
"Why is it that, as the internet subculture, we are more comfortable passing on catch-phrases and quiz results than synthesizing our own unique thoughts and ideas?" - Nobody, actually, I just made that up
I would like to know who really likes passing on memes on LiveJournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that, but if you don't repost this, everyone will know you hate baby Jesus and eat puppies. If you truly love memes and mindlessly parroting anything anyone else posts on their lj, then repost this and title the post as "A Meme, Hooray!" If you have a sense of irony or humor, you could probably post this too. If you are appropriately indifferent, that's cool, whatevs. Thanks.

What a pile of cliches Heroes turned out to be. I think everyone on this list, including myself, could have done a far better job of writing that show. I mean, did we really need three different characters going off on how Nietzscheanly special they are before they even knew what their powers actually did? And why did it have to be the Asian guy who can do awesome things with his mind? Couldn't they have gone against type and made him a tank who couldn't step on anything without crushing it?
Claire was the only character they really handled right. At least she actually used her abilities for good and didn't talk like a philosophical construct. But that's not wnough to keep me watching.
As for Studio 60, Matthew Perry and Sarah Paulson simply don't have the chemistry together to make the whole Matt/Harriet thing work like Sorkin wants it to work. If the show ends up being all about them and not at all about rebuilding the show-within-a-show, it'll probably lose me too, but it hasn't quite yet.
