You guys notice that, "Writer's Block" topic the other day, about September being ADHD month? I did. I wish I hadn't. Oh lord, the level of stupid when I clicked. Why did I click, why, why, why...

I was doing my best to ignore the idiotic posts and focus on the funny ones, but one jumped out at me: a guy stating that he believes vaccines, food additives and "flicker rates" on our televisions cause ADHD. Yup.

I couldn't resist replying to that. Obviously, we didn't see eye-to-eye, but the brief exchange remained civil. I would have left it at that except for one part in his reply to me about how genetics might be the cause of ADHD after all because stupid people breed more. I replied to say that while, yes, ADHD people have more children at a younger age, ADHD != stupid.

I also said I was dropping the topic, as I didn't want him to get the impression I was going to drag out the [largely non-productive] conversation for days. I thought that was polite.

The reply I got in my inbox:


I really don't need to be informed of when you think you are done with a topic. If you are done, you simply won't reply; it really is quite visibly insecure to try to "drop it" so vocally.


LOL WUT.

And here I thought it was just web courtesy to let someone know whether the interaction will be continuing or not if you're not familiar with each other.

The rest was a bunch of nonsense about how maybe I'm insecure because I'm gay (because my info says I'm queer, and queer = gay, right?), and it was condescending of me to, you know, state facts about rates at which ADHD people breed. Er?

And blah, blah, I'M NOT BUTTHURT AT ALL. LISTEN TO FOUR PARAGRAPHS ABOUT HOW MUCH I DON'T CARE THAT YOU CLEARLY THINK I'M A MORON FOR MY TOTALLY UNSUPPORTABLE BULLSHIT OPINIONS. IF YOU REPLY I WIN BTW.

I DISTRUST THE ESTABLISHMENT SO FUCK YOU I'M A DRAGON EDGY.

Haaaa...!


I really can't remember the last time I got an attacking comment like that which actually made me stop, giggle, and wonder if the other person was on drugs when they wrote it.

EPIC FAIL.

I just logged in to YouTube, and discovered this featured video. I was confused for a moment as to why it WASN'T under my, "Featured For You," videos, actually.

YOU GUYS NEED TO WATCH THIS.

THIS IS MOST EPIC )

I bring lulzy links!


First, ganked from [livejournal.com profile] blackfolk, there's this:

13-year-old Steals Dad's Credit Card to Buy Hookers.

(For those who cringed - according to the article, said hookers DID NOT do anything sexual with this boy or the buddies he brought along.)

This really is a Must Read, for:

-The kid's reasoning for hiring these women.
-The kid's incredible RESOURCEFULNESS! I mean, really. It's like a dirty version of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
-THE LAST LINE OF THIS STORY IS EPIC, GUYS.


Then there's this: Atheists should all be libertarians.

...Because when YOU support big leftist governments, you put your civil liberties at risk! Those nasty liberals are just WAITING to shove their religion down your throat, doncha know.


More randomly:

-The sixth episode of Doctor Who is downloading for me at the speed that snails fuck. Took me long enough to find the torrent too, since Mininova is limping along today for some reason. God, I'm dying here. At this rate, it'll probably 8 or 9 before it's done. Not viewing DW communities, though. Not. *sighs*

-GOD WRITING PORN IS HARD. Why?! I've read tons of porn. Why can't I write it? What's the block here?

...Well, okay, part of the block is definitely that I write a line and then re-read it and worry that it sounds silly. Then write another line and decide, yup, that definitely sounds silly. Erase it, try to fix the first line. Put the line back the way it was. Fix it again. Undo fix again. Write another line... Lather, rinse, repeat.

And um, I probably shouldn't be reading [livejournal.com profile] weepingcock at the same time, because reading porn-mockage when you're trying to write same REALLY doesn't help. At all.

So I've got my characters kissing. WHOO ACCOMPLISHMENT. /sarcasm

Dear Whofic author,

There is not actually any need to credit the actors when you are writing a fictional story about their CHARACTERS. Really. Truly. You don't! Trust me on this.

It's enough to cite the source material your fanwork is based on. (And make sure you say said source material isn't yours! True, we might not know if it'll actually keep one of us from getting sued. The principle is to be nice and, "borrow without permission," rather than, "steal," see.)

I mean...

You DO realize David Tennant and Billie Piper aren't actually APPEARING in your fic.

...Don't you?

Fondly facepalming,

Bean

I was out running errands yesterday, and while I was browsing our closest Safeway, I ran across a refrigerated sales bin with various Philadelphia cream cheeses and dips. Since I can NEVER resist checking out anything that seems new, odd, or otherwise interesting to me (once it's been brought to my attention, that is), I started sorting through the bin.

Most of the dips looked interesting, but since we have nothing to dip them in at the moment (and I REALLY didn't want to go hauling big bags of chips home in my backpack), I disregarded them. Then I spotted something truly new to me: smoked salmon flavoured cream cheese.

I thought, Ew! Who on earth would eat that?

Then I realized, Oh, yeah. I would. Or at least, I'll TRY practically anything. So I bought it.

When I got home, my mother explained the concept of lox to me. I had no idea! So I guess it's not actually that strange.

She said to me, "It's almost too bad you don't do the grocery shopping in this household. You would, of course, forget to buy toilet paper and dish soap. But you'd constantly be bringing home new and interesting things to try."

<--My personality in a nutshell!

Anyway, I'm having the cream cheese on crackers now. I can't say it immediately brings salmon to mind, but it's pretty good anyway. And I realize this needs another lulz-worthy tag. *adds one*

I just FINALLY figured out a way to screencap in Windows Media Player. FEAR MY AWESOME SKILLS. Nothing can stop me now.

So naturally, I had to do this straightaway. I apologize if I give any offense, but this was the very first thing that popped into my brain while watching this moment in "Planet of the Ood."

Best line from a porn story that I've read today:


Pleasure came at him from every direction like cars in slow motion as they smashed into one another at an intersection, and he felt his orgasm rising.

(emphasis mine)

Nothing more needs to be said, I think.

Oh, additionally, while I was Googling "shichon," I ran across this hilarious Weird Al video. (On someone's blog for their dog, where they noted, I think the lines "even made a home page for my dog" hit a little bit too close to home.)

This is seriously the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. Although admittedly, I was mentally ticking stuff off while watching it, and it's probably sad how many items I CAN tick off. Mayo? Check. Earl Grey? Check. Lengthy periods of time spent playing Minesweeper? Check. Chess club? Well, only in grade school...beyond that, no school I went to had one.

I'm nerdy in the extreme, and whiter than sour cream )

Okay. Found the solution to the hair mystery JUST tonight. Been freaking out for days, and only a few hours after posting about it to lj, discover what a damn moron I am. Figures!

I went and asked my sister this evening if she'd noticed her hair getting lighter in places, thinking - if it's something environmental, maybe my sister's been exposed, too.

She said no, and why was I asking? I explained, pointing out that I avoid the sun, and I don't think it could be anything I'm putting in my hair.

She said, "Maybe it's something you're putting on your face?"

On my face...?

Oh yes, I put enough stuff on my face. I work in a grease pit, after all: all day, five to six days a week, and frequently these days in the greasiest position - rail. Now, left alone, my (adult) skin is rarely very acne-prone, but combine bad skin genes (no, seriously, really awful genes) with an environment this harsh, and you have a recipe for some really stubborn acne. So yeah, I've reverted to high school and its ubiquitous smell of salicylic acid.

The brand I'm using now, though, is NOT what I used in high school. Still, I thought nothing of swabbing it on without reading either the directions or the medicinal ingredients. I know how this stuff works, right?

(Which kills me now, because I ALWAYS read that stuff. And the one time I don't...)

When I realized that the reddish/blonde areas are all around my hairline, or directly on my face (eyebrow!), I went straight to the bathroom and pulled out the bottles to check the ingredients. And guess what I found listed?


1.5% Hydrogen peroxide


Fucking HYDROGEN PEROXIDE! I've actually been putting bleach DIRECTLY IN MY HAIR!


...Fuck. I cannot BELIEVE it took me this long to figure it out. It's just that I've never used a brand that had hydrogen peroxide as an ingredient before, and I would never have thought of it. *facepalm* Well, I saw my doc today and she gave me some prescription acne medication, so maybe I'll just set that OTC stuff aside.

On the plus side (*hair toss*), my pritty hair will be back to normal! ...Um. ...As soon as it grows out.


And HEY, at five bucks or so for what's probably several months worth of blonde streaks...do I ever have a CHEAP home hair highlighting kit!

My commentary on House fandom's [livejournal.com profile] elicia8 wank:


I knew that she was a huge fake all along. I mean, I gave her the benefit of the doubt...but I just had that sinking feeling, you know? I haven't been commenting to her journal lately because my workplace is trying to kill me I was really starting to feel manipulated, and I didn't like it.

I don't know why other people didn't notice it, too...it was really obvious that she was just Photoshopping screencaps.

For example:

The charcoal portrait of House is clearly a fake.

To prove it, I'll do the same thing.

Here's a basic screencap )

Here's the same cap run through a Photoshop filter )

...See how easy that is? I'm sure I could do an even better job with a program more advanced than Photoshop.

Also, the "scribblism" portraits?

TOTALLY a Photoshop filter. I'll post my examples of how that can be done just as soon as I figure out which filter it is.



IN CONCLUSION, 'tis a puzzlement how people don't think things through these days. I say they didn't get enough Sesame Street as kids.

On that note, have some Sesame Street! )

Went to my grandmother's yesterday for the duel birthday celebration - my birthday is on the 13th, and my mother's was yesterday (the 23rd), so since I reached my teens and stopped doing parental-organized birthday parties, we've tended to have a LOT of familial double celebrations.

I'm 23; my mother's 43. Happy birthday to us, I guess.


I gave my mother copies of Teach Yourself Visually Crocheting (if she figures it out, she can teach ME!) and Hollywood Knits Style. (Which has two pictures of Lisa Edelstein in it, wearing an example of the author's knitted halter top pattern! Startling.) She also got some sort of...bag? And I lost track at that point, because I was opening my own stuff. Heh.

I am obviously THAT person, the one that's impossible to buy for, because for years now all my "gifts" have come in envelope form (not that I'm complaining), and this year was no exception:

-$25 from my aunt. (In a card that instructed you to press the button to hear a message from "Marvo the Marvelous Talking Flea" or somesuch. It's not really a button, just a colored circle on the paper. Then, when you open the card, it says, "OOPS! Too hard! You squished him!" I LAUGHED HYSTERICALLY. It's so easy to amuse me, I swear.)
-$50 check from my grandmother.
-$40 gift certificate for Chapters from Aunt Dawn/Uncle Scott/Brennan (my cousin)
-A monster named Colin (too cute - his hands come out of his pockets, and his hoodie hood comes off) and a $40 gift certificate to Payless from my mother.

(Nothing from my sister, Nicole, but as I COMPLETELY forgot her birthday this year - caught up with work and school - that's fair.)

...I'm particularly psyched about that last. I have NO SHAME. I'M GOING TO HAVE MOAR SHUZ.

Me: *waving around Payless gift certificate in cheesy packaging featuring snuggling het couple, "Always the perfect fit," bleh* SHOOOESS!

Nicole: Shoes.

Me: Shoes.

Nicole: Shoes.

Me: OH.MI.GAWD, shoes.

Nicole: Let's get some shoes!

[Rest of family: ...Bzuh?]

Nicole: These shoes rule.

Me: These shoes suck.

Nicole: These shoes suck.

Both: THESE SHOES SUCK! *gigglefit*

...

Mom: Well, it's nice you two are interacting civilly for a change...

Was that enough about shoes? ...I didn't think so )

Regarding the Biting Beaver (a largely anti-porn focused blog), makeshyftmakeshyft
in fandom_wankfandom_wank [on Journalfen] has this to say:

If you scroll down a bit, there's these just loverly rants about how masterbating[sic] to porn supports sexual slavery. There's a whole mini-rant about the Suicide Girls in the second one.

Of course, it's worth it for the phrase "organic, home-grown empowering sex-positive feminist erotica."

Cause where
I'm from, they just call that fanfic.

This is absolutely THE BEST THING I'VE READ IN AGES.

Ganked via [livejournal.com profile] fandomtossed on gj (but the post itself was made by an lj user), an anthropomorfic featuring FANDOM/LJ as a pairing.

Het (but don't let that stop you!), BDSM themes. VERY much NC-17, NSFW, etc.

Making Up Is Hard To Do

LJ's heart ached. "I'm sorry," he said. "It was a mistake."

"Yeah, it was." She didn't look at him. "Look, just get out of my face for a while, okay? I'm so mad at you, I could- I could-"

"What?" LJ eyed her warily. An angry Fandom was unpredictable and quite possibly dangerous.

Fandom's lips curled bitterly. "If I say 'kill you', will you suspend me for death threats?"



GO. READ.


Also? I've now discovered [livejournal.com profile] anthropomor_fic. I wasn't aware there was a community for this brand of crack. (Or, well, I didn't know where it was.) I'm betting that will be another place to find random funny when I'm bored.


*yawns* Long week. Customers have been so bitchy lately; it's great to come online to gems like this.

*sulks* So my [other] computer, or lj or whatever-the-culprit-is-this-time wouldn't let me post this House-related ramble and vent this afternoon before I left for work. I had a big thing typed up, and it wouldn't even let me post it privately. So it's saved on my OTHER computer. I don't have a disc I want to waste for a file that small, and I didn't have time to send it to my email before, you know, work.

Oh, well. I'll post it tomorrow or something.

In the meantime, I ganked this from [livejournal.com profile] puf_almighty:

Have a funny link!

It's much better than the post would have been, anyway.
