Massive amounts of spam evading my filter. 22 messages and counting from Gamma Distribution who seem to want to bail me out of the massive amounts of debt I don't have. Also getting solicitations from Drugstore.com, but at least I shop there occasionally. I almost miss getting the anatomical enhancement e-mails -- some o' the subject lines were funny. I do have one in my junk mail folder with the subect "she won't laugh at you when you make her scream in pain!" Something tells me that making her scream in pain and being laughed at are the two polar opposites of the Not Getting Any Spectrum, but I may just be making excuses for myself.
Manicotti has been secured. With my family birthday dinner rapidly approaching, I have verified that my birthday meal will indeed by manicotti, broccoli, a nice green salad and carrot cake. I cannot convey in words just how much this pleases me.
MP3 is fixed. If you downloaded These Doors Are Open, I encourage you to do it again. I've posted a new version which sucks less. Still short and still sounds like Bobby Prince on an off day (or maybe the guy who did the soundtrack from Monster Bash). Original recording is saved for future generations who will delete it to conserve hard drive space, while wondering how people ever enjoyed music before Ria Paschelle invented the statiophonicoxygeneticamplifiagraphiphonideliverberator. You know what's really lame? I put in the DVD just so I could copy that word from the subtitles.
No smoking policy at work comes into effect real soon now. Not that it affects me. I don't smoke, encourage smoking, or particularly enjoy being around people who are doing it. But. All company campuses are instituting a total smoking ban extending to all company property -- parking lots included. Despite the fact that I don't like the smoke, I've never cared that my coworkers do it. The smoking area is nowhere near the main entrance to the building so I don't have to put up with smoking other than seeing people do it when I go outside, and frankly, I can deal with that. The company doesn't think so though, so the smoking section is disappearing soon. Appologies to my employers, but this strikes me as a stupid, stupid move, and I expect nerves to be on edge while all the smokers readjust their schedules. Those who think don't think it'll be a big deal don't understand just how badly some of my coworkers exceed their allotted fifteen minutes of break. The schedule in my department can be as often as once an hour, on the hour.
Finally, the LJ Stalker Finder says I'm being stalked by Hal and April.:
|sacredspud's LJ stalker is tlhinganhom!|
|tlhinganhom is stalking you because you are really good at bowling. They are also eating your food when you aren't looking!|LJ Stalker Finder
|sacredspud's LJ stalker is westsexgoddess!|
|westsexgoddess is stalking you because they have you confused with someone else whom they love. They are also mentally deranged!|LJ Stalker Finder
Listen: I am NOT a good bowler, and you can have the onion rings if you like, but I ordered the sampler specifically for the cheese fries, so hands off. And April... who the hell would you confuse me with?
Current Mood: accomplished
Current Music: Steve Vai -- Reaper Rap
Kinda creepy if you ask me.
Well I guess I suck because I can't get that stalker finder to work. I get routed to a site (go-quiz
dot net dot com) that doesn't have it. Why Colin? Why must you best me at everything????? WHHHHYYYYYYY!!!?!?!?!?!
I tried it again after reading your comment and it didn't work for me either. Maybe they had to take it down because my search for entertaining results was eating up their 64K/day bandwidth limit. Doubtful, though. Anyway, I made you a result (complete with misused pronouns) so you don't have to feel unstalked:
|agaysexicon's LJ stalker is|
|r3507 is stalking you because they are hiding out from Colin. They are also using your personal stationery to send angry letters to the late President Arthur!|LJ Stalker Finder
That Kyle's a crafty one, but I swear... One of these days, I'll get him (as long as I can get Becki's permission first). Nobody would be offended if you didn't want to post the results in your journal, but just in case, the code is:
<table width=250 align=center border=1 bordercolor=black cellspacing=0><tr><td bgcolor=black align=center><font style='color:white; font-size: 16pt;'>agaysexicon's LJ stalker is r3507!</font></td></tr><tr><td align=center bgcolor=white><font style='color:black; font-size: 12pt;'>r3507 is stalking you because they are hiding out from Colin. They are also using your personal stationery to send angry letters to the late President Arthur!</td></tr></table><div align=center><BR><form method="POST" action="http://www.go-quiz.com/stalker/stalker.php">LiveJournal Username:<input name="uname"><BR><input type=submit value="Who is your LJ Stalker Friend?"><BR></form><a href="http://www.go-quiz.com/stalker/stalker.php">LJ Stalker Finder</a><BR>From <a href="http://www.go-quiz.com">Go-Quiz.com</a>
Honestly, I hae a feeling that the LAST PERSON ON EARTH to stalk me would be Kyle. I mean, even the late President Arthur has better reasons. But I will hold off on posting that in my journal. You know, I don't want to
piss off Wilfred Brimley even more with another shotgun blast to his abdomen offend Kyle more than I already do. |
