Were you wearing glasses or contacts? That's actually a serious question because you were talking about how you didn't want to "hide" behind your glasses anymore, and I'm wondering if there's a correlation here.

Hardly. You just tend to hang around nerdy guys, so they are all silently pining but never work up the nerve to make a move.

I mean, I don't know precisely what you do/did in your free time, but since you used to run a Harry Potter fansite I can make some broad assumptions.

ADDITION: There's this really cool webcomic I read sometimes that explains what I'm getting at

Aw man, you guys are the best.
I guess also why guys never approach me is because I am usually with a boy looking all lovey dovey (and for some reason I've only been two months in the past ten years without a boyfriend, so I must be doing something right there). I was just really weirded out!

Also Jimor - I was actually wearing my glasses. I'm sorry, it would have made a much better story if I had my contacts in.

Confided in the store manager today that I'm in the process of transitioning.

She was pretty okay with it! 'Cept for the tranny door greeter bit. So I got transferred to a different position - which, incidentally, is great, because it means that I get out of a shitty position I hate and also get a pay raise.

Win/win/win


Part of the job I'm at requires me to keep stock of what is making the security alarms go off. Usually it's just some item that wasn't deactivated, but a lot of times it's just some dude walking in and then looking startled as all hell because everything's screaming and flashing red lights suddenly, which means that there's a blank spot in the spot on the sheet where you put down what item did it. I've taken to writing whatever the hell I feel like in that space - "Labyrinth-Era David Bowie's hair did it," "aliens invaded oh no/oh well," "THESE KNIVES," shit like that. No one's commented so far.

Jimmy and Ingelise are staying some time in October and I don't know if I'll have the deathmatch cage installed in the back garden by then so if you both turn up at the same time you might just have to flip a coin.

Either that or you'll have to stay in a posh hotel seeing as how I've told Jimmy repeatedly over the last couple of months that he can stay here. Stupid social mores.

Last night I was hanging out with some friends. One of them brought another of their friends along, and this girl spent the entire night doing everything possible to try and sleep with me. I tried to counter this by being as rude as I could possibly muster, which I'll say is pretty fucking rude. For her first move, she asked to borrow my phone, saved her number in it, then called herself with it to get my number. Later, one of my friends was sitting on me, and the girl started getting all grabby on me. My friend moved to another seat in the car (we were parked) and the girl decided she'd take the opportunity to wrap a leg around me, grab one of my hands, and softly bite my neck. At that point I took my free hand, used it to move her leg off of me, and told her "Look, knock that shit off, it's annoying me to absolutely no end." Where she comes from, though, apparently means the exact opposite of what I think it means.

30 minutes after having been bitten, I left with one of my friends, at which point the girl texted me with a frowny face asking me why I left. I replied with "Because I felt like it, go away." This apparently meant "I want you" to her, though.

I mean, yeah, it was flattering. 'Cause she was pretty goddamn cute. But for the love of God, I shouldn't be sleeping with anybody. Ever. Let alone somebody that goddamn crazy.

This is how I initially mis-read that, and it was glorious.

So I went to a photo shoot for a local paper promoting a library event.  The MST3000 type event we are putting together.

I made a stupid face in one of the pictures because hey it's just a dumb little article that nobody would read and we were doing stupid pics and poses.  (Dave dressed up in a gorilla suit)

It turned up on the FRONT PAGE.  Full color.  Like an almost full half page was taken up by the pic.

This is the paper that almost everyone in town gets for free in the mail.  Every single business has them out for customers.  Everyone reads this thing or at least glances at the fucking front page.

So now I look like a complete imbecile to the entire fucking town.

My social life is now ruined due to a slow news cycle.  Neato.



(They didn't even use one of the pics where I looked like a normal intelligent human being on the article on the inside.  They just REUSED the one from the front.)

You know that whole thing where they have the rights to the photos they take? Well, if they've got one of you looking like a tard, they can put it on whatever page they like.

It's not the newspaper that ruined your social life, it's the fact that you knowingly posed like an idiot in front of a newspaper photographer. No sympathy from me, dogg.

Deep in my heart I know that.

But I mean I had NO CLUE they were going to put such a page 6 story pic on the front page.

The guy must have thought it was a pretty funny picture.

Ah man the library director was was proud of the publicity he got a ton of papers to give to everyone.

Perfect opportunity to tell one of my favorite stories. This happened to the guy who took my place when I moved out of my college apartment.

Tony grew up in the town my college was located in. His whole family lived there. He was an interesting dude who had a LOT to say about Huey Lewis and the News. Dude lived and breathed him some Huey Lewis. I once watched him speak about the album Sports for no less than 45 minutes.

Anyway, Tony was walking to class one day and saw a large group of people clustered around a stage. Someone on stage was beckoning people to speak into the microphone. Tony couldn't pass up this opportunity. He enthusiastically clambered onto the stage amongst cheers and began speaking about Huey Lewis and the News to the people gathered before him. He finished his diatribe and went about his business.

A few days later, Tony takes a bathroom break during a class located in the biggest lecture hall on campus. When he returns to his seat, there is a newspaper on his desk. Someone had circled an article and picture on the front page. It's a picture of Tony speaking into a microphone above the headline Tony Comes Out.

Turns out Tony was the first speaker at the campus "coming out of the closet" event. Tony is straight as can be.

The newspaper was available freely in every gas station and campus building in town.

i was supposed to leave work at 2 today because i was there late last night and had to come back in this morning at 5:45 (yay being on call), but i ended up staying until 5 to get some issues resolved for a development group. i've only been at this job a month and a half, so there's lots i don't know, but it seems like maybe i am doing a pretty okay job. the dev team i was working with said a lot of nice things about me (which apparently rarely happens for people in support here, especially from this particular dev group), and they even said they were going to bring me cake on monday for helping them out so much! that kind of affirmation means a lot to me because i often feel insecure and underqualified for this job. but maybe i'll turn out alright after all!

also it is my golden birthday on sunday. 22 on the 22nd! i am crossing my fingers that the on-call phone doesn't ring that day...

Went to see Eskmo in the mountains last night. The opening DJs were all American Bass types, a style of music which I loathe pretty deeply, and the crowd was half of that curious crossbreed of trustafarian and rave kid that American Bass music seems to generate, and half frat boys doing that exagerrated patting motions with their arms they do when they're pumped about music. It's weird, last time I went to a club it was great because I felt like I had something in common with everyone there, but this time I felt like I had nothing in common - they weren't there to see what I wanted to see. Was accosted by rolling kids twice, asked for ecstasy I didn't have once.  Something about so many people utilizing music as an enhancement for chemically induced sensations instead of an experience in and of itself struck me as distasteful, like smothering steak in ketchup. Probably wouldn't have been so bad if I wasn't the only person I met who was both sober and not on probation. Even the security was lighting up.

 

Stayed for Eskmo, which was alright but not great since I wasn't feeling the crowd at all (plus my legs were sore from moving earlier in the day), and left before Ana Sia's set to beat what would have been nightmarish two-lane highway traffic in the canyon. Walking to and from my car with the canyon lit by moonlight was probably a better experience than the show. Almost hit a deer on the way back, natch.

I imagine he's delving a little deeper than the idea of "I'm objectively right". Like it seems pretty easy on the surface but if you try to read the first couple of pages of Moral Relativism by Steven Lukes you quickly gather just how gosh dang complicated it can be.

it seemed like he meant "absolute values" in the mathematical sense, as in the distance away from zero, which is generally considered to be a pretty simple subject (the absolute value of negative 4 is 4, for example). but I dunno.

Absolute values are covered early on in university maths as well, though. I remember learning about it in middle school (I think – might've been first year in high school), but it was basically just "the absolute value is the value you get when you remove the minus in front of a number", not why or whatever.

I RESCUED A KITTEN!!!

the boy i am dating, his friend is a construction worker and they found a kitten in one of their trucks so he took it to the pound only to find out they euthanize kittens within two days. TWO DAYS! and he is the cutest and most friendly kitten in the world. the only downside to him is that he is really too young to have been taken from his mother so he cries for her sometimes. he hasn't since i got home from work today though. i think he loves me.




(by the way, his food isn't actually in the bathroom; that was just when i first brought him home so that was his safe room until he felt comfy in there, then i let him into the rest of the apartment)

Jesus fucking christ. Kittens and puppies should never be euthanised if only because they are so easy to get rid of. I've never heard of such an insane rule.

So easy to get rid of? Maybe with some types of dogs, but certainly not cats. Most humane societies in America are over run with stray cats and kittens. Its extremely rare to find a humane society that doesn't put cats down. I thought somewhere around a week was normal. Its not really insane at all, considering the humane society she is speaking of probably already has more cats and kittens than it can afford to feed, house, and provide medical care for. Unfortunate? Yes. Insane? No.

so he took it to the pound only to find out they euthanize kittens within two days. TWO DAYS!

D: D: D: Is Fargo overrun with mutant psycho kitties that eat people or something? That's terrible! I think a lot of places around here wait 1-2 weeks at least. Either way, this is why I do not take stray cats to the pound. We've rescued a few strays before and we'll either keep them until we can find them a home, pass them along to another person who can foster them, or just straight up keep them. (Granted the one we did keep we didn't really try very hard to find him a home because he's the bestest.) But really, this makes me happy I got my first cat when we did, because literally we were about to leave the pound when they brought in two carriers full of kittens. I'm pretty sure all were adopted within 10 min though...

Squee!!! It's so cute, I'm glad you got to rescue it! I <3 kitties. Did you name him?

that's the thing though, it was the pound and not the humane society. the pound has to put em down that fast unless someone from the humane society or one of the other rescue groups come to take them or if whoever brought it in found someone to save it. there are just a ton of cats i think for the population. other cities might have some strays and it's fine but because of our winters we can't really have them outside. even mine in the summer was found in an engine because of the warmth... and of course he got burnt up paws because of it, poor thing.

his name is wembley! he's about 8 weeks old we think. right now he is attacking his scratching post with gusto (i sprayed liquid catnip on it)

That kit is a total Wembley.

you're talking about cats, dude. cats can be hard to get rid of! Kittens aren't. That's why I'm amazed at the time given.

no, he was right. they're overrun with cats AND kittens both. kittens eat a LOT, and they need more care. they're more expensive to keep and like i said, there are SO MANY especially in the spring/summer. in the winter yeah you may be right since that's not breedin' time usually but it is indeed understandable. and sad.

alright so you know how yesterday's comic is about africa by toto? I genuinely love that song. like, it is the song that defines my childhood for me. I was at a club today (wasn't really a club, more like a private party in a theatre space fucking brilliant) and that was one of the songs that they played and it was fantastic. Like, I don't think I've ever been around people that know that song, and now twice in one day I find out that awesome people like that song.

Yay!
