Damned sodding buggery modem died after nigh on five years' faithful service. I've set up the new, non-wireless modem and connected it to the wireless router that Dad happened to have sitting in the back of a cupboard. All routers can go straight to hell and die. I am sure the abrasions on my forehead shall heal in time, but I want the last four hours of my life back.

I am now on holidays. Any correspondence over the next three days may be directed towards the large lump under the covers, which may or may not reply. After that I shall be going to Sydney to see Our Benevolent Overlord Stephen Fry, huzzah! and then I shall return to the prior state of lump-under-the-covers.

This is awesome. Craigslist posting "to the straight guy at the party last night"

Katrina and I saw Waiting For Godot tonight. It was funny and sad by turns. Still not a bloody clue what it was about. Katrina studied it and she's not got a bloody clue what it was about. I reckon Samuel Beckett wrote it for the lulz so that generations of performing arts students would be forced to study it and get confused.
Of course, the most important thing is that I got a signed poster of Sir Ian McKellen. My fangirl > yours, ha ha! See my victory dance!

I put my iPod on shuffle and give the first lines of the songs that come up. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to guess the song name and artist. If you google you are a great big cheater.
  1. Here's something new, I think I'll give it a try. Come closer you, I like to see what I buy. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] morbid_sparks 
  2. When you move in right up close to me, that's when I get the shakes all over me.
  3. If you're a hobbit and you know it clap your hands.
  4. Red and orange, or red and yellow? In which of these do you believe?
  5. I can turn a grey sky blue; I can make it rain whenever I want it to.
  6. Underneath these stairs I hear the sneers and feel the glares of my cousin, my uncle, and my aunt.
  7. Steve walks warily down the street with the brim pulled way down low.
  8. This ain't a song for the broken-hearted. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] morbid_sparks 
  9. When I was a kid I played on the street; I always loved illusion.
  10. When the Devil is too busy and death's a bit too much, they call on me, by name you see, for my special touch.
  11. Any dolt with half a brain can see that humankind has gone insane. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] tarpy 
  12. When it began, I can't begin to know when, but then I know it's growin' strong.
  13. Look, I find some of what you teach suspect, because I'm used to relying on intellect. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] morbid_sparks 
  14. It was Christmas Eve, babe, in the drunk tank.
  15. Now you all know the bards and their songs.
  16. Lay down your sweet and weary head. Night is falling, you have come to journey's end. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] nazgul_number_7 
  17. Long ago in days of yore, it all began with a god named Thor.
  18. I live in Barad-Dur where I breed Orcs for the comin' war.
  19. There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium, and hydrogen, and oxygen, and nitrogen, and rhenium. Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] tarpy 
  20. This is the great big opening song, the kind that Lloyd Webber writes and arranges.

Yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] willos_world 

So let me get this straight - Larry King is getting his 8th divorce, Elizabeth Taylor is possibly getting married for a 9th time, Britney Spears had a 55 hour marriage. Jesse James and Tiger Woods are screwing EVERYTHING - yet the idea of same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage?? Really? REALLY??

[Error: unknown template qotd]

A few that everyone use all the time at work:

1) "Flick me/you/him/her an email". IT'S SEND. YOU SEND AN EMAIL. FLICKING IS NOT INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS AT ANY POINT.
2) "Touch base", a phrase which here means "check on a person's progress in a specific task". The part that annoys me is that it is often completely extraneous to the sentence in which it appears. "How's Jane getting on with that customer?" "I'll touch base with her and find out." Why not just "I'll find out"? Gah.
3) Incorrect use of myself/yourself/himself/herself. Danielle's Grammar Lesson Of The Day: Only you can do things to yourself, only I can do things to myself, and only she can do things to herself. I cannot check the details with yourself, and she cannot send the documents to myself. She can, however, cc herself into the email.

­­­Goal: Enjoyment

Fear: Nonaliveness

Response to Dragon/Problem: Play tricks on it

Task:  Trust in the process

Gift:  Joy, freedom

Addictions: Excitement, cocaine, alcohol

The Fool is the archetype most helpful in dealing with the absurdities of the modern world and with faceless, amorphous modern bureaucracies– places where no one takes personal responsibility, rules are expected to be followed mo matter how absurd they might be, and the tables are incredibly stacked against individual effectiveness. A Jester does not merely provide entertainment, but also points out the failings of the kingdom to a wise Ruler. Thus, Fools are often the most serious archetype of all. The Fool often violates social norms in humourous ways to avoid provoking undue hostility.

A Fool’s politics are anarchistic. Fools are resilient, and are willing to stand up and try again despite failing. The Fool enjoys the contest of the wits even in the most dangerous or offensive of circumstances, and hates being bored.

 

Shadow Fool:

When such energy is not allowed, it simply goes underground, and in doing so becomes negative, undermining force. The Shadow Fool delights in breaking rules, regardless of the consequences. Unbridled and undisciplined sensuality, madness, and multiple personalities or personas are usually the results of the force of the Shadow Fool. The Shadow Fool has an unrealistic vision of what is required for survival, emotions, and relationships and believes that in order to succeed at conventional norms, one must work all of the time, so there is no use in undertaking any conventional task.

What was the #1 song the day you were born? Google the date and #1 song and then post your #1 song on your LJ - preferably with a Youtube vid if you can find one!

Google gives me conflicting results. These two are given as the consecutive #1 hits in that time period, but I'm not entirely sure which one was #1 on my exact birthday.

Wild, Wild West by Escape Club.

TOMORROW WHEN THE WAR BEGAN: THE MOVIE.

This is going to be so. awesome. If you've not read these books- I'm looking at you, non-Aussies- track down at least the first one and give it a look before the movie comes out. Growing up, I was in love with these books. We read the first one in English in year 8, and within a month there was a mile-long waiting list at the library for the other six in the series. I got in early, being a quick reader *smug*. I wonder if the Leeming High School libraray still have that hardcover copy of book 7 that's signed by John Marsden.
Hey, Corrie is Wendy from that Peter Pan movie with Jason Issacs! And the screenplay and direction are by the same guy who did Pirates of the Carribean! Yay, let's start playing Degrees of Separation!
