A world of hate...

In no special order at all:

* LJ is dropping invite codes. Anyone can get a free journal at any time. Now tell me, other than icons, what's the use of having a paid account anymore?

* I (once more) pondered walking out of work and never coming back. Boss came in hours late yesterday morning, left soon after noon. Came in late today. Yet *I* am pulling my hair out trying to keep up. I checked LJ and personal email for the very first time just now, 11:15. Got here at 7:30 AM. Falling behind in typing this.

* For those not in California: There's an idiotic push to give ILLEGAL immigrants drivers licenses. I say a louder "WTF?" than I have ever said before. Actually, this move did pass, but the one good thing the stupid new governor has done so far was cancel that out. So what now? Every Hispanic person in the state is supposed to not buy anything this Friday to show how much power they have and to get the drivers licenses for ILLEGAL people back.

What the fuck?

Their logic is that it will make the roads safer, because they'll have to take the tests and pass. I say: If they fail we're really supposed to believe they won't drive? Because, what, they've obeyed the law this long? These ILLEGAL immigrants?

I hate people. Anyone who doesn't buy anything on Friday should be shot. I'm going to buy as much as I can tomorrow.

Boy, I'm rather ranty, aren't I?

Meme, Survivor, PoT -- in that order.

By way of miscellanny:


I know very little about some of the folks on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well -- I may read your fic, MUSH with you, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally, but some of you I hardly know at all! Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason, but you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.

I fit five eps of Prince of Tennis in before Survivor (and I'll be returning to it once I finish this post). Not much happened plot-wise, unfortunately. Lots of tennis. (Special shot, special shot, this is how tennis works. Yawn.) I don't like what's his name, the red-haired fellow. He's annoyingly perky. Also, I've become convinced that Fuji is actually a woman crossdressing so that she can play on the boys' team. I wish they'd all play shirtless to prove otherwise. ;)

New Group: Looks like fun!

There's a new drabble-writing community starting, open to characters from any fandom at all.

I pondered character options for at least an hour, totally unable to decide. Finally I decided on something totally different: Ed from Lion King. I was looking for either a male biker character or an animal. My short list was Mrs Brisby, Scar, Si and/or Am (from Lady and the Tramp), Buck (from Call of the Wild)... as you can see, I didn't find any bikers.

Seeing how Ed doesn't talk (and I suspect doesn't think) and is quite literally dumber than dirt, he's going to be a challenge to write first-person, but I think it might be fun.

The group is open to literally any fandom, anime or TV or games or books or anything, so anyone on my flist who's interested in writing can go join up! For those who don't know, drabbles are really short stories -- usually 100 words, but this group is playing it as "150-250 words or longer if you so chose".
