Die, die, die. (Or not!)

Idiot co worker is apparently *again* staying home with his sick kid. (What? One four day weekend in two weeks isn't enough for you, idiot?) Seeing how there are only two of us doing this job, this is really a bad thing.

I cannot handle the phones all by myself for a second day in a row. I had only a couple hours of sleep. I had no dinner. I'm drinking Diet Coke for breakfast. I cannot do this.

I'll either have died or have killed someone before lunch, mark my words.

(Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. He just arrived. The words "better late than never" have never fit better. I could kiss him. Seriously. I think it shows how tired I am, but I'm a tiny step from crying in relief.)

Odd cat behavior

Anyone have experience with this or know what it might mean? My cat is very much a "people-cat", she loves to be patted and to be in the same room as me, and she likes to keep as much physical contact with me as she can (sleeping on my arm or my foot, etc).

Of late, she's taken to sitting across the room from me, facing exactly away from me (which means she's facing a wall, just a few inches from it) and meowing loudly and demandingly. She keeps her back to me the whole time.

This does usually happen when I'm on the computer or paying some video game, but if it's a cry for attention it's a really odd one... (When she comes and rubs against my leg I do stop and give her a pat.) She always has food and fresh water, so it shouldn't be related to that.

She's on the old side (12-14 years old) and she doesn't play much anymore (not more than 30 seconds at a time, at the most). But still, that would be an odd way of telling me she's bored...

I thought about mental issues, since she's a little old, but she acts normally other than this wall-meowing thing.

Any thoughts?

Yep, another post! And this one has a quiz!

But it's got real content anyway, so it's okay! ...right?

My inner child is six years old today

My inner child is six years old!


Look what I can do! I can walk, I can run, I can
read! I like to do stuff, and there's a whole
big world out there to do it in. Just so long
as I can take my blankie and my Mommy and my
three best friends with me, of course.


How Old is Your Inner Child?
brought to you by Quizilla

This quiz is highly cute, and oh boy I wish I were 6 years old. That's before school (I believe?), and I could just stay home and play by myself. I don't remember those years (or much before college, but that's another story), but my mother always tells me about how I could entertain myself for hours with the simplest toys. I'd make up stories for all of them, and I was RPing before I even knew what role-play was!

My mother said that all through my childhood, I was happiest when either alone or with our pets (and naked, but again, that's another story). Funny how I've gotten back to that now. Part of me wants to ask if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but I don't think it's either. It's a *me* thing. I live fine and dandy on my own -- heck, more than that, I live happier and more comfortably and less stressed on my own than if I had housemates or some other sort of shared space.

So, as when I was six, all I need are my pets and my stories and RP, and I'm pretty darned happy.

NaDa can work for you, too!

NaDa™ is a new concept. A thought, really. It is very light: 1 byte. It doesn't take long to fetch. It doesn't take long to understand. It doesn't disturb your habits nor does it makes you feel insecure. It is a reassuring piece of software that does nothing, and does it very well. That's a lot!

(I have not been more amused at a site in a long, long time. Check out the bad comments, too!)

TEA FOR YOU, The Virgin's Tearoom

So if you've been keeping up with my LJ, you know I have a speedy new computer with more memory than I know what to do with. While looking for interesting things to download, I decided to try some anime, because as we all know, only the best things come from Japan! *cough*orange peels*cough* However, being new to this whole Japanese animation thing, I took recommendations from other people on what to check out. I saw some good stuff, and I saw some... well, Azumanga Daioh.

You are dear to me because I want to embrace you.

Azumanga Daioh is a contradiction. While the main part of the episode is just boring as hell, the opening animation/theme song lyrics are just... my god. If, perhaps, you smoked crack for three years, then drilled multiple holes into your head, then had sex with a goat and ate your sibling for dinner, then this might make sense to you. However, even then I doubt it.

With a wet apple of memories...

Using my "shared pain is lessened pain" theory, I made screenshots to share with you all!

*Note!* These screenshots are in order! One for every screen of the lyrics; you are seeing all the lyrics in order, I left none of them out.

Believing in a broken clock!

Read the lyrics and look at the pictures as you do, and then share your reactions with me. C'mon, I really want to know, I'm not just asking so I can mock you for having suffered through this as well. Honest!

A page with just under 20 medium sized pictures. I couldn't reduce the image sizes since you need to be able to read the little text at the top as well.

The moon's piano is the world's dream.

Enjoy, and try not to be too tempted by the wheat.

Heh heh heh.
