dear person who is not related to me:

my mom called me today. she felt it was very important that she tell me about the name generating site she found, and insisted on informing me what my pornstar name would be, my drag-queen name, and what name my penis would have if i had one.

now, i'm fully aware that my mom does not live in the realm of normal mom behavior, but still- juh? has she had too much sugar? did dad lace the cookies he baked today? has she been "reading pierre burton"? in short, what is going on in my mother's brain that made my mother call me long distance to share this information with me?

mata is a time traveller from the year 2442. he has come here to manipulate the time line so that when he returns to his present, his tv remote will be in the form of a small dog named waffles who will come when he calls instead of being lost in the sofa somewhere.

i'm the one who had the polyp removed. did they take out the cotton already? if not, expect loads of pain and gushing blood. and it really is amazing how much cotton they can fit in a single nostral! and how oozy-gross a nose can be.

the tick- "you can't fight evil with a macaroni duck!" what more can i say?
x-men (the original series)- my introduction to comic books and cartoons that can sustain a plot for more than one episode. also contains some laughable lines such as "fools! your foolishness amuses me!"
justice league- fun and entertaining, it's the best saturday morning cartoon currently running.
batman beyond- why, oh why was it cancelled?! crotchity bitter old bruce wayne has got to be the best character in the dc universe.
daria- witty and geeky, what's not to love?
harvey birdman- ok, incase you haven't noticed, i like my superheroes. it's only natural to like a spoof.
dungeons & dragons- ok, it wasn't the best cartoon in the world, but when it came out i was at just the right age to think it was gold. and so even though it had a very short run, i've still got a soft spot for it.
bugs bunny and tweety- the origin of cartoon physics, anti-logic, and the law of acme.
futurama- if bachlor chow existed, my brother would be eating it right now.
original spider-man- mmm... b-cartoon...

ok, question: of all the things that you'd expect to find printed all over a bra and pair of panties, is a barcode one of them? 'cause that's what i saw in a store today. is this some fetish that i was unware of? "hey baby, i'm on sale!" ?????????

i hate customer service jobs. i have the hate of a thousand papercuts for the upper management people who are always that horrid combination stupid and greedy which makes your life such a pain. and then there are those nasty pathetic customers that don't seem to understand that you are a human being too and insist on yelling at you for stuff that isn't your fault. i hate the policy that "the customer is always right" and that bad customers get rewarded while good customers don't get a bloody thing.

i hate commercials that are so mind bogglingly annoying that they make my eye twitch. i hate it when a station plays such a commercial TWICE in once commercial break! especially when they have those jingles that get stuck in your head and put you in a fowl mood for the rest of the day.

i hate it when an interesting show that is getting good ratings and that is no where near jumping the shark gets cancelled anyway! especially when they lay the ground work for a really awesome story arc right before hand.

sending a dvd to the wayward traveller eh? could we stage stuff? like for instance, right before you and geoff say your vows, a ninja could burst into the church and try to carry geoff away and you could pull out some throwing stars that you had tucked in your dress for just such an occation and there'd be this real nifty fight scene and then wouldn't jaq be sorry she couldn't make it!

ye gods i need to get out of the house more.

getting back on topic...

i don't mind the extra scenery shots, or the enhanced special effects, or even most of the new dialog. in truth, there are really only few things that i dislike. however my dislike for them is so great that i'd really rather just stick to the old theatrical versions. what do i dispise so much that i am willing to settle for less than state of the art fx you ask?

1. greedo shooting first in the canteena. it's stupid, it's unnecessary, and it just plain looks bad.

2. whats-his-name as anikin's ghost at the end. i understand that this is the ghost of ani, not vader and so he appears as he looked before he became corrupted by the dark side. i get that. i just don't like being reminded of epi's 1 and 2 which blew goat chunks.

3. the music at the very end of return of the jedi. i loved the old ewok music. the new music just isn't upbeat enough. it's too subdued. if he wanted to extend the sequence, there's no reason that he couldn't have had the old music extended too.

there are a few other reasons too, but those are the main ones. oh, and i think luke looks terrible as a cat. tongue.gif

i never had a lunch box until i got to university. i bought myself a metal spider-man one with john romita sr. style spider-man and green goblin on it.

before that i had a star trek lunch bag. it was black and had the insignia of starfleet, vulcan, romulas, the klingon empire, et al in gold. i got it around the time that ds9 came out and used it through junior high and high school.

i was the biggest geek in the lunch room and proud of it!

dear pseudo aunt girl thingie

today i had an exceptionally rude customer on the phone that caused me great vexation. normally i would vent my anger by burning them in effigy and having a nice drink, but as i said she was on the phone so i have no idea what she looks like. should i look up her number in the reverse directory and spy on her, or should i just use my imaginaton to make up what i think she'd probably look like? also, should i go with the whiskey or the rum, or should i go to the store and replenish my booze cupboard?

from- in a dilly of a pickle

Jicama (long time no see, or am I just reading the wrong threads?), when you say 'the book', I assume you're meaning the Mary Shelley original? I love that book. I read it at university and it made be become interested for the first time in the Frankenstein mythology. Previously the monster had just seemed to be a lumbering fool, but in the book he is a very intelligent figure and far more interesting because of this. It's a very poignant piece of writing about the inhumanity of man towards things that we do not understand, and as science progresses ever closer to creating new life through various avenues it becomes ever more relevant.

ya, i took a short hiatus while i was finishing my last two classes, but i'm baaaack! it's nice to be missed!

yes, sorry i should have specified. i really enjoyed it too. i read it back in first year and was quite enthralled. and surprised, i'd been told by a friend that it was quite awful! she didn't like it because she thought to had too many coincidences- the monster finding the one cabin in the country side where they were teaching a foreigner how to speak the language so that he could learn to speak, the abandoned box of readers so that he could learn to read, etcetera. however, when my english prof assigned the book, she introduced it as a book about fate. reading it with that thought in mind, i thought it was brilliant!

i'll tidy my room before a holiday, or sometimes if my parents are coming to town. otherwise my room is a mess that got more mess put on top, with the mess thrown around and stuff put in weird places. for instance, the cup that i keep my brush and comb in currently has a pair of pliers and a bookmark in it.

once every 4 or 5 blue moons i'll attempt organize my room, but it never comes out perfect.

i need my clutter. if my place were perfectly clean it just wouldn't feel comfy. besides, whenever i clean i can't find anything! laugh.gif

dear auntie jaq

i've got a friend in korea that i've been meaning to send a package to for over a month. at what point does a busy schedule and good natured forgetfulness turn into slothen disreguard? what sort of retribution could i expect from said friend? in short, am i currently riding in a hand basket?

no, i don't mind as long as i like the song. for instance, "log driver's waltz" = good, but "i'll never tell" = BAD!!! crap, now that i'm thinking about it, it's getting stuck in my head! *starts chanting the badger song to make it go away*

"the log driver's waltz" has been going through my head off and on for the last month or two. i had to look up te lyrics because i could only remember the chorus and it was driving me nuts.

for those of you who aren't canadian, the log driver's waltz is a little song and cartoon that the film board produced and the cbc plays late at night.

well ya, i get that, but in the book he was discribed as having a sickly yellowish grey colour so why not stick with that?
