I react seriously to things sometimes.  One thing of recent note: I have a dislike for people making fun of fire safety procedures and announcements.  (It can be any sort, but those are most likely to result in drills and random alarms.)  I understand a lot of what goes into that reaction -- some folk are dicks, and the rest are laughing in the face of danger (warding, not bravado) -- but I still don't like it.

Recently, there was a Twitter story (or whatever you young folk call it): a series of tweets reproducing Hunger Games in the context of a white-collar office.  At the time, that being before I read it, I thought parts of it were pretty funny.

And then I read it. Note: Spoilers, plus I oversynopsise. )

I'll get the Twitter link tomorrow, I swear.

Also, on reading this, people saying "Rue isn't white?!?" astonish and frighten me.

What domain name should I use?  I'm thinking xtinas.tld, as it's all my shit all the time, but I'm not sure.

I updated the LJ Profile Reset script.  It now handles non-LJ profiles better (I missed two types, and one just got added), plus it displays the Installed Games block.

Today, I learned about The Room, chess boxing, and the virtues of monogamy, in case I was not aware.  So, today was a day.

[eta] Actually, the virtues of monogamy post is pissing me off more than I thought it would, so I should probably not post a long comment at four in the morning.  Yes.

I have conditioned myself to hearing one particular tune as my alarm for one million years, and I couldn't find it on the Droid, so I tracked down the file (glow.aac), converted it, and now have it as my Droid alarm.

It's teensy things like this that ensmoothinate my day.

I was gonna say something, but I forgot what it was.

* I've been recently feeling like I can't get anything right.

* Some of this general despair must be depression.  I got more depressed during the Planned Parenthood thing (I say as though it's past tense, ah ha ha), but did not get significantly happier during the DOMA thing (ibid).  Le sigh.

* http://dominion.isotropic.org/ -- go play this immediamente.

Note: When you play Moat defensively, click to play it once, then click "none".  Also, yes, you can play solitaire.

* I'm acquiring music and drafting a letter because I'm a dork.

* Seriously: http://www.feedbooks.com/list/22 + https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/epubreader/

* Goddamn classist Grand Market, tell you what.

* The Dominion online game has been approved of by the game-makers.  <3

My downstairs neighbour-friend is dating someone who is best friends with [livejournal.com profile] tacit's partner.

Is it a small world everywhere?  I swear.

Two quick things.

1) Concealer shaped like lipstick is pretty useful.  (I do girl drag for my interviews, waddayawant.)

2) I could love things more than cauliflower and the dip that comes with those veggie-dip-platters, but I'm not really sure how.  *nom*

I had two tabs open, one with today's Gunnerkrigg Court, and one with today's Girl Genius.

The blonde/green combo was v. pretty.

St. Vincent is total win when one is feeling vaguely morose and trapped.

1) I really do want to go to gaming on Saturday, Saturday being when my flight gets in.  I miss the people, I like the gaming, and I'd love to spend time with people who are familiar to me.

However, introvert cat says, even if it weren't for the fact that I'll be coming down off a 20-hour trip, I am an introvert, and I'm going to need to not be around people for a bit.

It is frustrating to have people-need while being an introvert, I tell you what.

2) I am reminded of [livejournal.com profile] alexandraerin's post on privilege, link to follow.  She mentioned that one way in which she has privilege is, she can say "I have a boyfriend".  Not as in she has one, rather that she can say it.  I am reminded of it whenever I talk about "my girlfriend" (infrequent, as I'm at work, but still), and I feel a pang of I don't know what in my stomach.  When I talk about "my boyfriend", I get no such pang.

Life is stupid.

Ah!  Self!  Go get that quote and put it here!  Whoever wrote about IQ vs. creativity, in the comments!
