A Thread for Random Musings

Re: A Thread for Random Musings

 

Came to me after a mention of Barbarians with mullets:

"Let me tell you of a time, after Fires had drank Atlanta, and before our breakthrough in Whiskeypowered cars...., In this time, strode Bubba, destined to wear a heavy John Deere Cap upon a troubled Brow. Only I, his second cousin, can tell you his story."

 

Of course, if any non Southerner's use this, I'll have to get offended. ;)

Oh man.

 

The cutest little Shakira clone came in to the library a little while ago. She was wearing a gypsy skirt and a corset style blouse which, when she came to my desk, said "Hello, these are my breasts." I pride myself on not being an ogler, but DAMN.

 

She was hot with a capital F.

I started a pool to see how long our new hires lasted before either quitting in disgust or jumping ship to get a better job somewhere else that pays more.

Re: A Thread for Random Musings

 

I have seen my job described thusly:

"There are days when I love my job. There are days when I hate my job. Usually they're the same day."

 

I can really sympathize. Today I am trying to figure out how to tell a co-worker she's stupid. Bad day.

 

On the other hand, I just had a very nice transaction with a beautiful woman looking for books for her daughter. And there was no ring on her finger. Good day.

A group of adverturers known as The Order of The Moody Blues, bardic-knights dressed in white satin, were making their seventh sorjourn in search of the lost chord. Last I heard they were on a threshold of a dream where the days are future passed. As you know if Chaos gets the lost chord first it will be war of the worlds. So it is to our children's children's children that they succeed, but then again as you know -- it is just a question of balance, can the Moodies, preserve it?

We forge our bodies in the spirits of our ancestors.

 

Maybe genuine bodies would be better.

 

Also, it's not a very respectful way to treat spirits.

I often see this van parked near the BART station. It reads "www.solarsubsidy.com". But somehow I never read it as solar subsidy; I always read it as "solar system buddy". That's how I know I've been working on my Star HERO campaign too long.

So, what has my latest project been? Writing? Gaming? Campaign design? Nope. I've been obsessively tweaking my freaking LJ icons.

 

On the other hand, now that I'm finally happy with the way they look, I can leave them alone... and obsess over something else equally pointless.

 

And, yes, I even tweaked my icon on this board as well.

So is there really any point in buying an internet security bundle for a machine that is only ever connected to the 'net via a 56kB modem? Especially when the first thing that happens when you connect is the damned package grabs the connection and tries to download the 43 MB monthly update, thereby tying up your phone line indefinitely and making sure nothing "officially" hostile from comes aboard?
