The Onion, Mad Pimpin, and ZOMG WEDNESDAY - Are we not men?
The Onion, Mad Pimpin, and ZOMG WEDNESDAY
This week's Onion had me rolling on the floor, especially with the John Edwards bit in the 'Opinion' section. And here's my horoscope:

Aquarius: (Jan. 20—Feb. 18)
For a moment, the stars will seem to take the shape of God, but onlookers will agree that God would not manifest Himself just to call you filthy names.

I think he would. Because, I know if I was God, I would manifest myself just to call you filthy names. Or at least make the stars spell out "UNDERPANTS" in all known languages that have a word for underpants. This is one of the many many reasons I have not been granted omnipotence even though I've asked several times.

Do you know what Livejournal has done? They've given me 50Mb of photohosting webspace. Per paid account. That's 150Mb, baby. Do you know how many screencaps 150Mb is? Here's a hint. My ISP gave me 26Mb of webspace of which I'm using about 23Mb to host over 500 screencaps. Five hundred. That means conceivably I could host 3,000 screencaps. THREE THOUSAND. I could cap an entire series with that! Frame-by-frame! And go into detailed analysis of the animation techniques used! Buuuuut, I'm more likely to cap hott anime guys and make up captions like "They're gonna make out".
This link should work. Warning: in the galleries "ohtorixshishido" and "stoeled!" there's some non-worksafe contents. You have been warned.

Lately I suck at sleep. Oh hey look I made a new "I suck!" icon that doesn't have Envy in it. But back to my egotistic ramblings. I suck at sleep. Last week I couldn't sleep at normal times, and I kept waking up after like 3 hours or so of sleep, and this week I can sleep for like 12 hours in a row and wake up all yawn-y.
AIM has decided I am its mortal enemy. MSN hated everybody all weekend or something. Also, something is askew on my home PC but I don't know what and don't feel like fixing it, so yeah. Today I need to acquire another USB hub and an external HD. Yeap, you know what that means. Means I can't order a bunch of stuff off the internet. And speaking of stuff I ordered off the internet, where the hell are my plushies dammit ><
Val, you didn't check the mail.
Shut up.

My thumbs feel weird today. Isn't that an odd complaint? They do. Did I tell you of the fate of my belt? It broke. You want to know why? Because I kept not unbuckling it when I went to drop trou. Isn't that stupid of me? Forecast calls for falling trousers by the end of the day Wednesday. I am thinking about laser eye surgery, only because it's a pain to keep up with glasses and my cats like to take them while I sleep. As you can imagine, it's difficult to find them when I don't have my glasses on. Also, I wish it would snow. I dreamt that it snowed but I forgot the rest of the dream. It snowed last year, and I went outside and chatted on the phone while snow got in my hair. Snow in my hair is cool. Then I went inside and it melted and I was wet. But before that? There was snow in my hair.

Also, I want Christmas.

I'm all : devious spanky

Bad Val, making me read The Onion instead of translating something I wrote before writing my composition!

Did you know that they now officially consider reusing work you've submitted before to be plagiarism? I wonder if that includes translating stuff you never actually turned in for anything... Oh well. *continues translating her HikaGo fanfic into Spanish*

Actually, I wish I could find that story Ryan wrote for me and I translated, something about roses... That was a good one.

That's lame. If you wrote it , you should be able to reuse it as many times as you want. That's how the law is, should be how skool is too! But you said stuff you've submitted before, and that would imply submitted for a grade. Not submitted to the internet for your friends to read ;)
That's a good story. It'll sound weird in Spanish. You should tell my story of the bee from yesterday for your next composition assignment. That was a good story.

It can't sound any weirder in Spanish than it does in English... I'll post it when I'm done. Maybe.

Can you feel the love?

No guarantees, but if I sent it via email, I *might* still have it somewhere. Granted, if I do, it wouldn't be your translation, but still.

That is, if you're referring to me-Ryan.

I've been goosed!

Yes, I was referring to you... But I don't remember how you sent it.
Had to be email unless you did something weird like pasting it over
AIM or IRC.

I could probably pinpoint the when if I think about it... I think it
was Fall '01 or maybe Spring '02, something about a girl and a bus or
train or something like that, and roses. I thought it was a really
good story.

I'll see if I can find it when I get home. I've been through two computers (and several OS reinstallations), but I tend to keep my email and my documents. Unfortunately, lately I've found some rather large holes in my archives, which is the main reason I can't guarantee anything.

Are you gonna eat that?

Heh, I'd still have it myself if it weren't for a similar situation...

I searched in the folders that would contain files from the period, and nothing with "rose" came up (at least, nothing pertaining to what you were asking -- lots of documents from when I worked on a site that referenced the cityname "Roseville").

I can't find my email files for that time period.

Sorry. If I happen to stumble across it, I'll let you know.

My cats deleted like 10,000 documents from my HD one night a week or so ago.

I sorta needed the space, but you know... cats.
