A happy how I'm doin' post [Jul. 27th, 2010|08:52 pm]

OHAI GAIS. Here's a short rundown on things that are swell in my life. I've got some things to angst about too, but let's have the good stuff.

My new house is great, and my roommates are pretty awesome. We are turning our place into something that is visually pleasing and socially inviting, a great place for parties and craft nights and other such fun times. When I can summon forth my energy-for-boring-things and put my sewing room together, I will make mad crafts. I just keep having the urge to make mad crafts, going and putting away like 2 things, and then getting horribly bored and wandering away, like a squirrel of some nature.

Even though it kills me, I pretty much like my job. Relatedly, I find myself with friends and at parties, talking about work, and not being bored out of my mind! It's like we have interesting things to say about our jobs! Crazy! Still working a lot a lot, but it's calmed down just a tad, and I've only worked past 8 like twice in the last two weeks.

I haven't done great at meeting new people, but the few I have are great, and my old friends are great still. Hanging out is good.

Oh yeah, and I'm thinking of pretending to be a vampire again. I miss that shit. Or rolling some dice to see if I'm getting drunk. YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING.

Yesterday, dianajoyz suggested that the most attractive thing to jameel was being covered in bees. Since we already know that jameel enjoys large derriers and will not prevaricate, and then it was suggested that I was in fact covered in bees, I announced that:

My attractiveness is over 9000!

Leading to a further discussion that:

Wow. That's...nine ships.
Nine fleets of ships.

And then the very funny poeticruse gave us this stunning diatribe:

Still not quite right, unless a fleet is precisely 1,000. It would be
9,000 ships. The correct SI unit of attractiveness/hotness is the
Millihelen, which is sufficient to launch 1 ship. Presuming that
Laura, in her woeful imprecision about units (cursed mathematicians!),
meant 9000 mH, then that's 9 Helens (which is just ludicrous, on its
face. No recorded values exceeding 1.5 Helens have been verified by
modern attractivometers.

Note that the Millihelen is an discrete unit. One cannot launch half a ship.

The Desk-To-Low-Orbit measure, which is actually a percent likelihood,
is more precise in sub-Helenic hotness levels, but has the
disadvantage of being capped at 100 and often exceeded, making it
useless for measuring super-Helenic values.

Modern attractivologists have suggested the
Miles-I-Am-Willing-To-Walk-Just-To-Be-The-Man-To-Fall-Down-At-Your-Door,
but it is controversial. Counterarguments to the MIAWTWJTBTMTFDAYD
include;
- Differing attitudes toward physical fitness in different nations
- The inability of forensic attractivologists (in partnership with
archaelogists) to establish, beyond dispute, the location of Troy and
thus the exact distance Menalaus was willing to walk, and whether it
was for the purposes of falling down at Helen's door, or stabbing her
for being kinda a ho.

Where do they have early human footprints? Only in Kenya!

If I were a deep one, blub blub blub blub blub blub, I'd be a fish with a clear head and barrel-shaped eyes! But mom, I just want to dance!

It's so beautiful. With Neil Patrick Harris, Margaret Cho as a random extra, and Jack Black as Jesus. Watch it.

...Almost. For my first vacation vacation as opposed to working vacation since DPB-Con. Woo. That is all.

Oh yes, I forgot, I'd like to welcome Pelaphina to Substation Fraxinus. She is a lovely Singer industrial sewing machine. If I'm not to be found in public for the next few weeks or months, you may assume that I am sewing. And many thanks to endotoxin for the use of his vehicle and waterfluke for helping me carry her, and to both for helping me wrestle her down my narrow staircase.

Some Muslim McCain supporters and at least one Christian McCain supporter runs off some racist anti-Muslim types, presumably outside some sort of McCain event.

(Please note, I continue to be totally against McCain's politics, and "horrified" is probably not too strong a word for my feelings that some of my friends whom I respect very much are voting McCain/Palin, and I would be happy to expound on why to people that wanted to know. But this really warmed my heart and helped me regain a shred of hope and happiness for the state of humanity.)

On the other side of the coin:

More hopeful, and yet more horrifying. The opening anecdote blows my mind.

Attn Houston/HoD people [Oct. 8th, 2008|10:34 am]

Does anyone have contact for the dude who was not Chris who was taking pictures at the bubble party? He was shortish, rockabillyish, has a goatee, and I think his name was Aaron or Darren (it was loud when he introduces himself). He got some good pictures of me that I want, but I failed to get an email address or anything from him.
