Random Wednesday

wm0604I got a brand new pair o’ rollerskates.

One time in middle school I was roller skating with my friends Diana and Becky and my feet went out from under me and I landed flat on my upper back and it knocked the wind out of me. That was the most terrifying experience. I was lying there, I couldn’t breathe, and they were laughing. I don’t blame them for laughing, how could they know I wasn’t breathing? And I’m sure it was hilarious. Yeah, that one sticks with me.

Babies everywhere. So many babies.

Well. I might know a thing or two.

I need a new quote for my email signature. I considered Molon Labe but I just don’t think it would be appreciated.

Water the plants! Water the plants! Dammit, man! Can’t you see the plants need watering?

vapid and overblown

This is pretty fantastic. One of the reasons I refuse to live in a city again is the light pollution. I need it to be truly dark. I need to see the stars.

Oh come on. Not everything has “feminist implications.” Give it a rest.


I’m not going to talk about meetings.

This is entirely too much to expect of someone’s April.

I love the one where Patti’s smiling with her eyes cl0sed and Robert’s looking at her. These are beautiful.

Local news programs need to come to terms with the fact that they have become irrelevant.

now you’re gone

Wedding! This should be a fun wedding. Also cheesecake and donuts instead of wedding cake. Awesome.

I really do not like these people.

I need to come to terms with the fact that Wednesday is my least productive day at work. And not because I’m slacking.

I need to stop answering emails on my off time.

I need a drill sergeant, not a personal trainer.

The Wheel of Time series has been mentioned in my universe twice today by two completely unrelated people. How odd. We should probably take it as a sign that we need it in the house.

She said “moments of brevity” … I think she meant “moments of levity.”

“Sign up to become a Next Generation member today, and receive an autographed photo of Lt. Col Allen B. West as your free gift!”

right right right right right right riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight right

lonely as the average sea

asseesment. engineery. yo.

Who proposes on Easter?

The perfect storm of

I should not be this hungry.

Just have to make it to the 26th and then I can breathe.

scratched your farewell couplet

“What’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips? I will tell you, these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them” says Rep DeGette. According to her, “the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will be shot and there won’t be any more available.” They’re trying to ban crap and they don’t even know what it is. I have no words.

Very well spoken young woman. Good on her.

Did I already use that picture?

My hands! They’re on fire!

That is the brightest shirt I have ever seen in my life.

And let’s eat grandma too.


Oh that’s not confusing at all. Nope.

He thinks he’s hilarious.

No, I think I have to disagree with you this time.

How many WIDR djs are actually students and not middle aged hipsters desperate to hang on to their glory days playing music no one gives a shit about? (If people gave a shit, wouldn’t they have donated during WIDR week?) And how is that even OK with the administration? And further, how can you call it “student media” when half the staff is in no way affiliated with the university beyond having, once upon a time, attended? And claiming that the “students have spoken” is misleading, as it only takes a simple majority of voters to screw everyone else who isn’t interested in raising tuition even further for a service they don’t care about.

How is Jim Carey even still relevant? I think any credibility he may have had went right out the window with the whole anti-vaxxer phase.

See? 6 bloody 40 and I’m now doing work at home. I need an intervention.

i’d never let that show

Apparently the magazine rack is where we’re keeping the bayonet these days.

What, doesn’t everybody give imaginary interviews in their heads? Shut up. Something has to pass the time on the treadmill.

“In an era where tuition keeps increasing, isn’t it time to rethink the millions of dollars students—and taxpayers—shell out involuntarily on college sports?” Um. A resounding yes.

How fun!

Marcia is a good name for a snail.

Sometimes I accidentally hit the “not spam” button instead of the “delete forever” button. le sigh.

Evening conversation between Miss W and me:
“This color doesn’t look good on anybody.”
“You look funny ha ha!”
“You have the same color shirt as I do.”
“I know, but it looks much better on me, I’m sure.”

All I really want right now is a cookie and a cuppa tea.

    Light pollution.

    That is one of the things I really miss about the Navy. The view from your ship at night in the middle of the ocean.

      Oh, I can’t even imagine how beautiful that must be. Like you’re right out there with the stars.
