Actually sung to my boycat this morning:

Hey dude
Don't bite my leg
Learn your lesson
And behave better.
Remember, your teeth are really damn sharp.
Could you please start
To behave better?

Me-ow me-ow me-ow me-ow me-ow me-ow hey!

Meow, meow meow mewmeowmow, mewmeowmow, hey dude. x(infinity)

Westboro Baptist Church is coming to town. And one of their stops is both easily accessible and on a Saturday. I get to be a counter-protester!

I'm accepting sign suggestions through the middle of next week or so, or possibly longer. Right now I'm thinking of brushing up on my grid art skills and creating an "I has a sign" cat macro. Mostly, I'm looking for sign suggestions along the vein of these. One of my co-protesters (not sure which ones she'll make) will have a sign saying "Tiger Woods is very sorry about this, too".

Watching the slightly less embarrassing than it was five minutes ago Avs/Ducks game:

"The Honda Center? Good thing the arena's not sponsored by Toyota or else the Ducks would really be unstoppable."


And just now, after a guy got hit by a puck (he has a nosebleed but looks fine other than that):

Announcer: "That looks like blood, Mike."
Me: "Oh, really? I think it looks like Jell-O. Doesn't it look like Jell-O to you?"

(Why yes, I am in a cranky mood tonight, thanks for asking.)

(And Anaheim just made it 5-2. *headdesk*)

*wheezes*

It's 1 in the morning and I should really be in bed, but OMG OMG OMG this is making being awake totally worth it right now.

William Shatner reads excerpts of Sarah Palin's autobiography on The Tonight Show. Palin returns the favor.

This transcends all politics, and goes straight into "OMG HILARIOUS" mode. And the look on Shatner's face when Palin says "a bit from Shatner's biography..." *wheeze* *cough* *splutter*

The guy in the cube next to me has the word "Madness" written on his whiteboard. Evidently there's some basketball thing going on right now or something. (I'm a bigger supporter of the NWBA, myself, and their tournament is hardly getting any of the same hype...)

I crossed out "Madness" and wrote "SPARTA!"

*waits for retaliation to come*

(Of course, this is the guy who had "The appendix does nothing!" written on his board for the two weeks after his appendectomy, so his whiteboard isn't that utilitarian to begin with.)

I'm probably a bad person for laughing the way I am at the last five seconds of this video, but OH. MY. GOD.

Random thought of... quite a while ago, actually: This song is much funnier when you replace "bicycle" with "bisexual."

The cat is kittyloafing on top of my cell phone.

I'm tempted to call it just to see what happens.

Cracktastic (cracktacular?) character meetings I want to see:

-Chiana (Farscape) and Elle Bishop (Heroes). I think once they get past Elle's sociopathy, they'd be great friends.

-Stark (Farscape) and Nathan Stark (Eureka). Mostly just for the name thing, plus I'd love to see Farscape-Stark drive Eureka-Stark bonkers. There's also the whole spoilers ), and Farscape-Stark would definitely pick up on that. (We could throw Tony Stark into the mix as well, but I haven't seen Iron Man yet.)

-Hiro Nakamura (Heroes) and Sam Beckett (Quantum Leap). They can discuss time travel over waffles or something. (I actually suggested that as a prompt for [livejournal.com profile] heroes_fest, but nobody claimed it.)

-Matt Parkman (Heroes) and River Tam (Firefly). Just to see exactly how they end up interacting. I expect River would freak out something fierce upon meeting Matt...

-There were others but I forgot them. Maybe I'll do a second edition sometime.

If an adventurer were beset by several sinister, lurking presences in a pitch-dark area, would it be a gruesome death?

This is so great.

So I'm on Kongregate, and this guy comes in and everything he says is in chatspeak.

So I make a semi-serious comment asking one of the mods if we have permission to mock the guy until he learns English.

Said mod doesn't say "yes," but Original Chatspeak Dude and Some Random Guy are over in one corner, and Awesome Mod, Other Awesome Guy and I are in the other. (I'm not sharing names, since they're not really relevant.) Nothing flamewar-ish is going on, but it's become a fairly interesting discussion on the merits of chatspeak.

Although I do have to say that the highlight for me was the reaction of Other Awesome Guy (whom I've had listed as a friend for quite a while now) when he found out I'm a woman.

And now it's become more philosophical, about individuality and one's right to be angry.

This is why I love the room I hang out in there. So much interesting stuff.

ETA: And now Some Random Guy is posting ASCII penises because he can't remember what ASCII is called. This is going to be good.

(I'm so glad I'm not a mod there, really. I'd have to quit playing with people's heads.)

Random thought:

I'm naming my next cat Hubble, just so I can say "I'm taking Hubble in to get fixed today."

From my term paper:

"The key itself is simply an object, and it doesn't mean what readers think."

Is there such a thing as too much Firefly? I mean, I doubt the professor is going to get the reference, but still.

I'm getting punchy. That has to be it.

And tonight's going to be a rare occurrence: I'm getting caffeinated.

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?

Or should I just order pizza and stay in?

I am a very, very bad person for this. I really am.

(Also, not the best writing I've done. But the punchline wouldn't leave me the hell alone.)

[livejournal.com profile] hopefulnebula's First Law of Procrasto-communication:

The number of unread e-mails in one's inbox is inversely proportional to the amount of time one spends refreshing said inbox.

[livejournal.com profile] hopefulnebula's Second Law of Procrasto-communication:
The amount of time one spends refreshing one's inbox is directly proportional to the amount of work one needs to finish.

(Also. So creepy to be alone in this computer lab.)

So. I got pissed at a certain overpaid backup goaltender--what else is new?--and decided to excise my anger with filk.

What other than "Someone Is Crazy" by Jonathan Coulton could I use? I mean, it's like the perfect breakup song, and has just that perfect amount of anger and snarkiness. So. Go click that link and take a listen, then come back and read.

I bring you: Someone Needs a Firing.

Of course, the Avs would turn their game around just as I finished this. )

Sex Education

Elementary School
Eeeeew. Boys are yucky.

The lesson: If you don't talk about it, it doesn't exist.

Sixth Grade
Sex is bad.
Don't have it.
Ever.

Kids need to be kids.

(For what it's worth, that year, "being kids" involved shoving the geeks face first into a freshly-gathered pile of goat's-head weeds.)

If you dare even talk to the one other outcast,
and that outcast is a boy
and you aren't,
you're obviously fucking
and must be separated.
Good thing the kids do the job themselves.
The teachers don't have to lift a finger.

The lesson: you can get screwed on all fronts,
without ever actually screwing.

Seventh Grade
Time for that exercise with the cups
and the dye
and the eyedrops.
Everybody has fake eyedrop sex with everybody else,
and everybody's water changes colors at the end.
What have we learned about AIDS here, children?

The lesson: Form beats function every time.

Eighth Grade
Sex is bad.
Don't have it.
Ever.

Drugs too.
Don't do them.
Ever.
But if you must, here's all you need to know:
your very own Hitchhiker's Guide to Five Points.

The lesson: Somebody's priorities are whacked.

Ninth Grade
"Penis" and "vagina" are very funny words.
Even more so when the person who says them
can only whisper them,
as if they were secrets,
shameful relics of a burden we haven't yet transcended.

Seventy girls in the class of 2008,
and after the first year
we knew what circumcision was--
had demonstrations with dry-erase markers, even--
but even thinking the word "clitoris" netted you a detention.

The lesson: Look up your own damn answers.

Tenth Grade
It's time for The Miracle of Life, children!
Isn't this going to be fun?
We get to watch silly Mr. Sperm fertilize the lovely Mrs. Egg!
(Remember, that's Mrs. Egg.)
And here comes the baby,
the only reason to ever have sex!

The lesson: If you sit in the back, by the door, there's enough light to read.

Eleventh Grade
Here's a banana.
And here's a condom.
Go to town.

The lesson: Sometimes it's easier to just read the directions.

Twelfth Grade
Here's what the Bible says about women.
It's what you are,
what you'll be forever.
You should know all this by now,
but the school makes me,
so let's get this done quickly and quietly.
No time for questions.

The lesson: There's no escaping the least original sin.
