Oh, hey, FYI, two people who still read this, I'm getting divorced. Which should come as a surprise to no one, but still... I'm watching Star Trek right now and thinking about how much I'm looking forward to the second one next year. Mostly because of that posh Harrow educated motherfucker. OH MY GOD I MIGHT AS WELL JUST RETIRE WITH SOME CATS AND A VIBRATOR.

What fictional high school—from tv, film, or a book—would you most like to attend? Or would you rather never go near high school again, fictional or otherwise?


Um, Hogwarts, obviously.

Vindication! [Jul. 9th, 2008|08:53 am]

So, I've been meaning to post this for a few weeks, but I kept forgetting to. Things like a ridiculous Christmas '09 invitation were just too important. But, today's the day.

About four and a half years ago, I was at a party at a certain friend's apartment (ahem, Christie), and we were talking about Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. I said "I bet he must be insecure sometimes, considering the fact she was engaged to Brad Pitt." Everyone looked at me disdainfully and totally jumped on me, like I was insulting their god or something. "I don't think Chris Martin really worries about that kind of thing," one girl in particular said to me, like Chris Martin was somehow so cool that natural things like insecurity and, you know, the need to urinate weren't things that affected him.

Well, Kathleen, shove it up your twat, because here's what he said in the latest Rolling Stone:

“If your wife went out with Brad Pitt, you’d want to prove yourself, you know what I mean?”

Yeah. Bite me.

...This is how the entire course of a life can be changed - by doing nothing. On Chesil Beach he could have called out to Florence, he could have gone after her. He did not know, or would not have cared to know, that as she ran away from him, certain in her distress that she was about to lose him, she had never loved him more, or more hopelessly, and that the sound of his voice would have been a deliverance, and she would have turned back. Instead, he stood in cold and righteous silence in the summer's dusk, watching her hurry along the shore, the sound of her difficult progress lost to the breaking of small waves, until she was a blurred, receding point against the immense straight road of shingle gleaming in the pallid light.

So, my friend is currently rocking the bearded look. I feel he now bears more than a passing resemblance to Sam Beam, aka Iron & Wine, aka one of my favourite musical artists.

In honour of that, we're going to play a little game I like to call "spot the impostor."

Sam, where are you?Collapse )

He's going to be so happy with me for posting this.

Jeremy directed me to this site, and the following conversation ensued:

Shannon says:
also, Mitt Romney's attack on Obama- Barack Obama "wants the government to take over health care, spend hundreds of billions of dollars of new money for health insurance for everyone."
Shannon says:
To me, it's like "wait, that's an attack?"
jbrown says:
it sickens me that that's an attack
jbrown says:
yeah exactly
Shannon says:
like, you son of a bitch! how dare you want to provide people with health insurance!
jbrown says:
take care of people? you motherfucker!
Shannon says:
how sleazy can you get

Can you tell we're Canadian?

Dear Diary,

Today, I almost froze to death. I needed to go buy stamps, and my car wouldn't start because the ground fault plug tripped and my battery froze in the -49°C cold. So I had to take the bus. The way there wasn't too bad. I stood in the shelter, and sure, my legs were going numb after about fifteen minutes, but I could hop around and it wasn't too bad. I bought my stamps, mailed my letter, and then went back out. Only to realise that there are no shelters on the West-bound side. So I had to sit out in the open for fifteen minutes, while -45°C winds whipped at me. I couldn't feel my limbs. The bus finally came and I hobbled on. Two hours later, my legs are still partially numb, and the part that isn't numb hurts like a bitch.

Thank you, people who designed it so there are four bus shelters between my stops going Eastbound, and ZERO going West. Thank you very much.

Shannon

So, I was surfing CNN.com (you can clearly see how desperate I am to procrastinate doing my application), and I read an article about some British guys using an absolutely gigantic pair of knickers to put out a grease fire. Your standard haha story. But then I noticed they had an article summary at the top of the page. It turns out the summary was way more hilarious than the actual article:

Story Highlights

*Men set meal on fire when frying bread in London kitchen

*One grabs knickers from laundry to smother flames

*The powder blue, size XL underwear were slightly scorched
