Wax: Are you at work?
Brother Windows: In principle.


Hahaha, "in principle"? That's one way to put it...

Brother Windows and Brother Linux are Wax's brothers - hence the 'brother' part of their nicknames. Brother Windows is a computer nerd who works in the university Datacity tower doing some programmer shit, and he runs Windows on all his computers. Brother Linux is a computer nerd who lives and works in the somewhat-distant town of Ekenäs (Fi: Tammisaari) aka Raseborg, also doing programmer shit, and runs Linux on all his computers.

Last night at midnight I was coming back from walking the dog and there was a flock of drunk Swedish-speaking Finns in the entry and then the elevator arrived crowded with more drunk Swedish Finns. And from within the elevator, behind the people shuffling drunkenly out, then I heard in Swedish this guy go,

"GOOD LORD." Then he shuffled out staring fixedly down at Perry (funny b/c he was so tall) and intoned theatrically, "It's a dog."

In Swedish, this speech is "HERREGUD. Det är en hund."

Thus my icon. It was classic.

"A Marine infantryman...told me that the guys in his unit complained that if openly gay men were allowed in the Marine Corps they would no longer feel comfortable masturbating together."

I think we like P. Diddy better now.

"It takes me two hours to get ready. Worse than any woman I've ever been with. I take a long bath and then moisturise with oils and cologne when I'm still wet so that it all seeps into the porse - then I air-dry by dancing around to James Brown."

Moodtheme Attrition
So, hahaha, I accidentally deleted my moodtheme entirely from existence yesterday. Well, I've been too lazy to make a new one for years, but it's about time to make one with actual DVD caps - the original Star Trek caps I had predated the DVD release and were from this website of a woman who took them by taking digital camera photos of her TV screen. Another Kirk/Spock theme and a Singin' in the Rain theme are both on my to-do list, but first I'm gonna make a theme of our own cats for wax. I know it's twee, but look, we like to stare at them, okay? Plus, I have like 2000 pictures of them (not exaggerating there, actually).

Movin House. Computer. OS.
I'm definitely switchin to Linux next time [livejournal.com profile] wax_jism has three days to do it for me. Meanwhile I've put all my media files and all my documents except my fanfic folder on her computer and have to remote log in and copy them back and forth every time I want to do anything. It's like the computer equivalent of camping in your apartment when you're moving, sleeping in a sleeping bag, surrounded by taped-shut boxes of your own possessions. I hope I get around to this before leaving for Alabama.

Manson vs MCR part eleventy-lame
I feel that anyone who can be mean about Gerard is bizarrely inhuman. Sometimes I suspect that I myself have a mildly sociopathic core, but even I would not be mean about Gerard or kick puppies, which seem to be about the same thing to me. However, somehow, Marilyn Manson's lame-ass shenanigans seem kind of exempt from that. Is it because I feel so sorry for the guy since he's so transparently lame? Is it because it's so hilarious that it doesn't actually seem that insulting? Is it because nobody could possibly be hurt by something like that when they have Frank (two feet tall though he may be) watching their back? Is it because it reminds me of that feud between Pink and Christina Aguilera circa Linda Perry, where Pink thought Christina was copying her by wearing clothes, being mostly naked, and working with Linda, and also that she was a ho or something? Yeah, I dunno. I do know that, however that feud may have led to rps, this one won't, though. OTP, man. I couldn't read either one of them with Manson. Or, you know, anyone. Except possibly, occasionally, Mikey.

My better half has deep thoughts about cheese
"I wonder why companies feel the need to put like" [squeaky voice] "'This cheese tastes GOOD!' on their package of cheese. Like what, like, unless they tell us that, we probably think that their cheese tastes like ass?" This is the kind of deep shit me'n'my girlfriend ponder at breakfast lunchtime pretty much any time.

PS. I had a dream about Mikeyway and Pete last night
But I don't remember it. Pete/Mikeyway is totally cool with me because it's probably canon. Also, I decided, Pete/Ryan, because it's semi-canon. Otherwise, Patrick/Pete is another OTP. OTP-breaking makes my OCD little soul faintly anxious. And makes me make I Don't Love You Gerard faces, except not as flexible and adorable.

'Good God!' said Sir William. 'She won't talk that stuff, will she?'

'Oh yes, she's bound to! As far as I can make out, you practically have to testify, if you're God-controlled.'

'At a dinner-party?' said Sir William awfully.

'Anywhere, dearest.'

'But you don't talk about God at dinner! Damme, it's not decent!'

having tried and failed twice already to find out from wax why a box of green tea was languishing in a paper shopping bag on our livingroom floor, i eventually gave up and put it in the cupboard with the rest of the tea, but yesterday when V was here and i was fixing tea it came to mind, so i demanded with some asperity, "why did you buy green tea?" (with the intention of pursuing, "you don't even like it!", or at least "you've never bought that kind before".)

"i didn't," she said, "V did."

and then i was kind of stuck like this: :O and unable to think of any graceful way to continue the conversation, so i just said "oh".

i don't like shopping alone. [livejournal.com profile] shiroi_chi is really the only person who likes shopping with me, but the stores with clothes that fit me don't have much that fits her and vice versa, and anyway, she's out of town. :[ doesn't anyone want to fly overseas to shop with me? wax doesn't care at all that we're going to miss the after christmas sales, and besides, she's kind of broke.

msn hates me. and everyone else. in fact msn is the enemy of freedom, right-thinking people, progress, logic, and cute baby animals.

i was trying to ask wax what the point of "saker man ser" is and why it has the lines about saker man ser at the end when the beginning is about slipping under the icy water of something or other and she came up with these words of wisdom: "if you somehow accidentally manage to understand some kent lyrics sometime, it's more than i can do." *adds the song to bleak bittersweet jun/aiba universe mix anyway*

[livejournal.com profile] hollsh and i paid a visit to the random surrealism generator. here is the cream of the crop. I'm a love poem! I'm a toilet! I'm jovial! Charm the carpet tile, charm the carpet tile! )

"it's like she's the world's tackiest gay man and every story is some room or photoshoot that she's got to decorate the hell out of, but when you try to use the room or take the picture, there's too goddamn much shit in the way, piles of gauze and cushions and knick-knacks and not a single free bit of wall."
