quidditchgrrl: (Jon is feeling pretty today!)

I did get to ask Jon Stewart a few questions at the reading I went to.  My questions were prefaced by my thanks for making it okay to actually READ the newspaper again.  Jon immediately perked up and said, "Do you do the crossword puzzles?"

"Of course!  Both of them!" I said, surprised.

"The word scramble, too?"

"Yup, I do everything, even the Sudoku!"

"Cool!"

Today I got in a movie on reserve called Wordplay, which is a documentary about Will Shortz, the New York Times Crossword Puzzle, and its fans.  One of those fans is Jon. 

Now, that whole riposte makes sense.  :)

AIEEEEE!

Squee.

Confession time:

1. I've been looking at the new clips from the SWC movie, and *flail* )

2. I finally gave in and made myself a MySpace account. It's been, for lack of a better word, awesome. Right now I'm having some fun conversations with a couple of people I went to school with. I'm so glad that not everyone I grew up with is a narrow-minded bigot.

But, uh, I'm not friending people I haven't met in real life (aside from [livejournal.com profile] queenkatieett, who snarks hard enough to transcend the ether) over there. So, if you've had good facetime with me, we're cool. If not, that's what LJ is for.

3. Because of #2, I've not been giving as much attention to LJ as I normally would. I still love you all. MySpace isn't as cool as LJ. :)

4. Major things are going down at work. I'm crossing my fingers that everything shakes out good and the organization can get out of the Dilbert phase we've been in this year. It's proof positive that one person can mess things up for everyone, even if said person has the best of intentions. Talking to one of my former classmates has been great for my work outlook - she does a lot of firing at her job, too. Not many people do that, and unless you do it, it's hard to relate. But hey, even for the executioner, it's just a job, eh?

5. I've also begun the conversion from chemical cleaning products to natural/organic. I did my bathroom today. ) You know it's good if I look forward to cleaning. :P
quidditchgrrl: (Listen to Stephen Colbert America!)
OMG. Snubster.

Finally, a place to list all those who are dead to me, and those who are on notice.

I think we know who to thank for this. Stephen Colbert! (And [livejournal.com profile] madam_minnie for pointing it out for me!)

*starts the infinite listings*

OMG!

I'm alive, barely. Just a GIP and quickie update before my hands give out.

Work has gone surprisingly well this week, now that I've dropped the 'omg I have to do every last thing around here' attitude. Left me more time for shifting and shelf status and getting rid of one of our AV areas. I am soooo sore now; I haven't done much online because my hands are sore at the bone.

Saw this book on a cart and had to give it a second look:



That wide belt gives her a wholesome look, doesn't it? What about the girls without values? Are they allowed to buy vintage clothes? :D

So, the the guy they've cast as a young Remus Lupin? Super hot (though his lips kind of scare me).

Honeybunch and I watched Good Night, and Good Luck together last night. It's funny to watch Andy get so mad about this stuff. We would certainly have been targets of Mr. McCarthy. Because we're not pussies like more and more Amurricans seem to be. I refuse to have my name, SSN and address entered into a database that tracks my cold medicine (and if you pay with a credit card, that database can immediately start looking at your other purchases, not just your Sudafed buys). F-off, commie bastards.

(Very interesting: As we were kind of looking over the McCarthy era online, we were surprised at how late in the game President Eisenhower came out against McCarthy and the Senate. But, if you look at personality styles - Eisenhower was an analytical personality - he looked to be operating in classic Analytic stress mode. When there are not clear-cut rules or precedent, the Analytical leader will avoid speaking out or making decisive statements until he or she feels that their opinion/decision is the right one. Up until now, I'd considered Eisenhower a take-charge, decisive person. Hm.)

Randomly:

Am I the only one who thinks the Arctic Monkeys are vastly horrible, a la The Killers? Talk about overhyped and under-talented.

I am 100% in love with del.icio.us. My listing is here. Too cool (and you can set up buttons on your Firefox toolbar for one-click link additions). I love being able to browse other people's links. *sigh* So little makes me so happy.

Stretch Island Fruit Leather + Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper = Crazy Delicious

Andy's car died one day after I got mine back from the shop. *headdesk* I thank my lucky stars that I got a replacement ID from OSU, so I can ride COTA gratis, 'cause it might be a while before we have two cars. I'm kind of figuring out why people take drugs, because I really want to escape from the daily worries of life once in a while. Anyone know about a free crack giveaway? :D

How are YOU ALL doin'?
quidditchgrrl: (Jello is good for you.  Also better.)
Am I really far behind the times? This link was posted to Moby_Journal:

You can enter a song/artist you like and it will create a radio station with artists that match what you've chosen. Dude.

I put in The Smiths and oh yeah, I'm one happy girl. :) It's not really giving me new artists per se, but you really can't go wrong with the Smiths.

Once you've heard a few songs, you can register, and create your own radio stations. Rawk!

OMG!

Went back to work for a couple of hours (well, it was supposed to be just two hours but ended up almost three) yesterday, but cannot go back until I get clearance from my doctor. Dunno if that's going to happen, but those HR problems aren't going to wait until I'm fully healed, darn it.

I'd been kind of bummed out because I'd gotten a few cards from people at work, but no card signed by everyone (we're always good about sending get-well cards and remembering special occasions). But! Yesterday I got a big present from my department!

The booty. How these people know me so well, I don't know. )

I did get out to see Napoleon Dynamite Monday. Jon Heder has the best lips (too bad he's married though) and the hottest dance grooves. :>

And my friend Shannon had her baby!

Schweet. Remember last year when you could sign up for a piece of the Compact Disc Minimum Advertised Price Antitrust Litigation?

I got a check.

For $13.86. O.o

Mightily impressed, I am! :D *prays for Microsoft liquidation*
