“Who’s Lars from Norway?” “Just some guy she met at the gym, with Brad Pitt’s face and Jesus’s abs.”
Fun fact: 87.83% of my tweets are @replies.
Hm, I apparently used 1.51gb of bandwidth on my phone in the past month. That seems high. Oh well. Unlimited data ftw.
I’m looking forward to the new year. Why? So I can file my taxes and get (what I hope to be) an awesome tax refund.
Port workers in Egypt have refused to receive a shipment of tear gas ordered by the country’s Interior Ministry from the United States. They fear it will be used against protesters in Tahrir Square.
If you want something done right, learning from the Nazis isn’t enough. You have to actually put them in charge.
runalovegood: domdomomnom replied to your post: i hate this school i hate this life i hate this… that’s why you should come to me :3 I wish I’d had this horrible semester a few semesters back, so I could have transferred out of here back when it made any sense. I’m supposed to graduate in May, and in all likelihood, I’ll be dropping out in two weeks. It’s not fair. I’ve worked my butt off for...

wizardinafez: kaylen-false: That last post with Liam’s “colour” and my “color” make me laugh. When I was in fourth grade, I read all of Narnia and hordes of other British books. Then I got into Neopets and all that… I started spelling everything “wrong.” My teacher was really upset… Really? I always thought ‘grey’ was more common in the US, even though I prefer...
runalovegood: Uh so, IT says they disabled my account because I was using Bit Torrent. Only one problem. I’ve never in my life used Bit Torrent. Seriously? Are you freaking serious? I can’t get my stinking homework done or answer incredibly important e-mails about TUTORIAL MEETINGS that I HAVE ON FRIDAY. Just. WHAT. I have to take my computer in and they’re going to uninstall something...
this is a test. moo.
I’ve spent most of the day trying to do something I could’ve done in five minutes with PHP.
I hate ASP.NET more than any ASP.NET developer ever should. Gaaaah.
runalovegood: Sooo I’ve been locked out of my student account by my school. This means I can’t access my school e-mail, information, or, you know, my online class. ARGH I DON’T EVEN KNOW. The only way I’m even ON this computer right now is because I hibernate it instead of shutting it down. THIS SCHOOL. Why today is awesome: you got to use that gif. Also hibernating is awesome. People...
runalovegood: Read More I don’t know how accurate it was, but I liked how it was in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (movie version, at least). Where you get through a decent amount of the movie, and learn that all the main characters have some sort of mental issue they’re trying to overcome, but then it’s revealed that they all entered the place voluntarily and can...

runalovegood: Guys. One episode stands between me and the four-part Avatar finale. =O I mean, first off, I hope it’s apparent to you how much of a life I don’t have. Secondly, I kind of want to watch the finale with a bunch of awesome people online, but I still haven’t figured out how I could do that. I… Actually, scratch that. Wherever you’re watching the episodes is...

Ship Breaker had it’s own hurricane simile. I definitely thought of “If people were rain…” when I read that line.
Want some thoughts on Ship Breaker? Damn right you do. Minimal spoilers ahead. It was a decent book overall. There was a major plot point I didn’t like, because it influenced so much of the story, but it was something the characters could have easily avoided. So every time that comes up, it’s like “you know, if you’d just done [x] before, you wouldn’t be in this...
I was following too many tumblr blogs so I unsubscribed from some. Down to 32 now. A lot of the ones I got rid of were dead: they changed their URL and I never unsubbed the old one. Of course sometimes I didn’t even subscribe to the new one, because it’s a tedious and sometimes difficult task.
And of course Safety Dance leads me to Five Awesome Spice Girls.
Sometimes you just need to watch the Safety Dance music video.
I am proud to be the shepherd of this herd of sharks.
Looking at FB photos of one of my relatives. The ones of his daughter are amusing. Because he grew up in Kentucky, really outdoorsy and into hunting. And of course he teaches his kids these things. So I’m looking at pictures of this little girl smiling so happily alongside the dead coyote she’d just snared. Those were from two years ago. Her profile pic now (as a freshman in high...
These new earbuds have good audio. They make looping Laurena Segura even more awesome.
Just finished Ship Breaker.
Now that I think about it, I exist because of libraries. (parents met at a library)
Saw three friends this weekend I haven’t seen for quite a while, UC won football, hoping Bengals win tomorrow, Miami played well and won both hockey games this weekend, got some chilly (but not cold) whether in… it’s been a good weekend so far. Heading back to Florida tomorrow.

7 chapters left of Ship Breaker.
I like June Pipinpadaloxicopolis and Sapphire Fire in Avatar.
Also I found all my old German notes and workbooks from high school. I forgot I’d kept all those. My German is terrible now. It wasn’t good back then, but it was better.
So for the longest time I didn’t read. At least not out-of-school. I read a few books during high school, then pretty much stopped in college. Last year I started reading (very sporadically), and now that I’m home, I’m finding old books I had that I either wanted to read, or that I liked. So now I need to get my parents to mail them back to Florida for me (because I’m not...
kaylen-false: kitchensink108: kaylen-false: eeeek. I see it’s flaws…. I don’t have photoshop on this computer so I use pixlr. Pixlr’s such a pain when you’ve been spoiled… The obvious answer is to carry around a portable version of Photoshop on a flash drive, for just such an occasion. wait… you can do that? Not with a legally-purchased copy, but hackers (in their way of making other...

kaylen-false: wizardinafez: About the Hunger Games: “I have no hope for their future because they didn’t learn from their past.” YES. THIS. THANK YOU. well thank you! Even if their odds of successful post-revolution society-building are low, at least it wasn’t an ending like 1984’s.
runalovegood: I am halfway through the 2nd season finale for A:tLA, and I should have been doing this much, much earlier, but not-so-live-liveblog! Thoughts so far, though… Read More Don’t worry, the series has a proper finale. And there’s a sequel! (next year). I shipped Zutara for a while, but now I ship Zujin. The movie is just Book 1, but with stuff cut out and changed...
Apparently my cactus died a while ago. I probably got it 10+ years ago. One of those cactuses you can buy for like $1 when they’re a few inches tall. Over the years it grew to about three feet. The other two we bought with it died within weeks of buying, I think, but this one survived for at least a decade.
I’m concerned about my kitty. I finally got to see her for the first time in… 8 months, which is really nice. But in that time she’s apparently… well… gotten old. She used to be rather overweight, now she’s underweight. Also my parents think her eyesight is going. But she’s still eating normally. She has a healthy coat. Her purring sounds different, but...

I’m hoping my math is right on this. I wanted to calculate how much space a physical book takes up compared to an ebook. I used what I believe to be the most space-efficient storage medium available today (a 32gb microSDHC card), and Mockingjay. Conclusion: you could fit 108,544,000 ebooks in one copy of Mockingjay. Calculations: microSDHC card = 11 x 15 x 1 = 165mm^3 (src: wikipedia) ...
I wish I just had a bunch of free time at some point. I kind of want to fix the problems with the transcript wiki, but I also kind of just want to re-code the whole thing from scratch. The only feature I’d be nervous about re-doing would the be the search engine. But the possibilities of such an endeavor are really nice: transcripts could be stored separate from page contents and meta info,...
