Before the neo-cons start wharrrgarbbling: Stephen Colbert is so not selling men's clothing in Iran. (GOOOOORRRRRE!)



You Are An ISTJ
The Duty Fulfiller You are responsible, reliable, and hardworking - you get the job done. You prefer productive hobbies, like woodworking or knitting. Quiet and serious, you are well prepared for whatever life hands you. You are conservative and down-to-earth. You hardly ever do anything crazy. In love, you are loyal and honest. If you commit yourself to someone, then you're fully committed. For you, love is something that happens naturally. And you don't need romantic gestures to feel loved. At work, you remember details well and are happy to take on any responsibility. You would make a great business executive, accountant, or lawyer. How you see yourself: Decisive, stable, and dependable When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, conservative, and egotistical

Jesus, I hate futzing with HTML. >:P

I have a mini-meetup with some folks I went to school with...high school...in my hometown. GOD I DO NOT WANT TO GO. But I'm dragging my bff from high school, not drinking, and leaving as early as I can get away with. What appeared at first to be a small gathering has now turned into a monster (which I should have figured on, considering that the majority of the people I went to school with never left home). KILL ME NOW.

Saturday is the St. Patrick's Day 4-Miler. Then maybe Irish Festival? I think it's far from the race site, hm. (Crap, I forgot to pick up my race packet early. Drat.) We shall see.

Then I will collapse and have a nap.

Have a good weekend, everyone!!!
quidditchgrrl: (BBW cute)

It's amazing how much more I read when I have hours to kill in front of the computer rather than 30 minutes to skim the flist and hit Fark before bed.

Now I remember the good part of my job at Bowels of Hell - time to peruse the internets and time to write!

I have Diet Orange Crush, which is...ahh. So good! (former) RC Cola products FTW!

A great article about Stephen Colbert. Although I think that, right now, Stephen is probably catching up on his sleep during the strike! Poor Stephen sometimes looks like he's dancing on the fine edge of exhaustion.

Jamie Oliver is coming back to Food Network! Yay! At least he looks like he eats his food (unlike Sandra Lee and Giada DeLauretiis).

*back to writing*
quidditchgrrl: (SWC Best Friends)

Updateyness!  (And I apologize for the lack of cut tags)

Worthington PL has been chosen as Library Journal's Library of the Year, which meant an early press conference this morning.  Some of our patrons have no clue how good they have it in this state/area, so maybe this will jog their sense...wait, no, nevermind.  LOL

Thing the second:  remember those callouses you would get from riding your bike/climbing trees when you were young?  I've got them again.  Bought a month pass to Vertical Adventures and have been going twice/three times a week.  Not much in the way of cardio work, but it's doing me good just to feel accomplished at doing something sporty.

Third, this email


You are now booked for The Colbert Report

Show Date: July 25, 2007

Showtime: 6:30 pm            

Number of Tickets: 2                                  

Name Tickets are held under: Donna Kestler


Now, to find a way there, someplace to stay and a way back.  Money would make this easier, but alas, I have very little to spare right now. 


Also, I have to be sure no one else is on vacation at the same time, because I don't want what happened to me post-vacation to happen to anyone else.  Boo.

I found some really yummy strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and ripe (not hydroponic!) tomatoes at North Market.  Too bad my meter ran out and I got dinged $20.  Drat!  But there will be yummy BLT sandwiches at some point this weekend.  (Not that I can eat either tomatoes or bacon, but just one bite should take care of the craving!)


Thing the fourth:  for you swimming fans, and fans of the male torso:



I'm not so much with the abs, but check out the shoulders and the lean biceps...*swoon*

You know, I really AM too young to be having these crazy middle-age surges of lust for people who are just too pretty.  I mean, it's obviously in the realm of possibility...here's Clive Owen and his wife:

Good thing I have Honeybunch to keep me from prowling the streets, LOL.  'Cause I think I compare favorably to Ms. Fenton-Owen!

OH OH OH, I know everyone has seen it, but just in case you live under a rock/don't watch any of the 5462473 SWC/TDS/TCR communities, [profile] i_get_it  has posted her interview with Paul Dinello. 

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how one has a VERY VERY fine day.  :)

I was planning to take a nap...I guess it'll still be daylight if I lay down for an hour before I take a ride.

Have a good weekend, everyone, and Happy Father's Day to you lucky daddies!

quidditchgrrl: (Crazy Colbert laughter!)
So.  Well.  So.

Leaving for NOLA Tuesday...never will I be so darned glad to get the heck outta Dodge.  Andy showed his arse yesterday, and it's a good thing he's worth more to me alive than dead, else he would be in for some serious physical harm.

Me, I plan to hit the talks my friends are giving, work out, swim in the rooftop pool, and take a few tours of the city.  Bring back photographic proof that George Bush hates black people.  Have a po' boy and some muffaletta.  Eat beignets at 9am on Friday at Cafe du Monde.

At least I have a good base tan from planting for six hours yesterday.  Sore, though, dang!  Today is a recovery day, for real.  I will never, EVER own a place where I have to do ANY yardwork.  Too much work is anytime I can't put my hands up to wipe sweat off my face.

I also ran face-first into a dumpster lid.  So I have a big slice on the bridge of my nose, and my eyelids are a little swollen.  Yargh.

OH - DC Madam - Susie Bright's take.  Ilu, Susie!  (NSFW ads in there)

Today is also Stephen Colbert's 43rd birthday and I'm discovering all sorts of gems - like Jon Stewart is God & Stephen agrees.  And seriously, if you've never seen the Responsible Drinking clip:

Another great comedian's birthday was yesterday - George Carlin.  You can find his 101 Greatest Quotes here.  My favorites:

--Religion has convinced people that there's an invisible man…living in the sky,who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn't want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

--The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post "Thou shalt not steal," "Thou shalt not commit adultery," and "Thou shalt not lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.

--Capitalism tries for a delicate balance: It attempts to work things out so that everyone gets just enough stuff to keep them from getting violent and trying to take other people's stuff.

--And now, in the interest of equal time, here is a message from the National Institute o fPancakes: It reads, and I quote, "Fuck waffles."   Muahaz.

That is all.  Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.</td>
quidditchgrrl: (Harry:  easy to beat up but hard to kill)
So, we get a new HP movie and the last book in the series in July?

*holds back a squee*

I believe I am one of the few who are kinda, sorta hoping Harry is offed, somehow. He can't come back for a sequel in 26 years. He stays 17 forever.

I don't typically get excited about books or movies until the time is upon me. I think I shall be taking a few days off in July, however. Hee.

There will always, always be fanfic.

In other news, I see that Current Biography magazine has an article on Stephen Colbert. Hmm. If only I didn't have 42375248715287 things to do this weekend, I'd be all over that.

Hope you all are well, and are planning loads of fun for the weekend!
quidditchgrrl: (Deal with it!)

Surfing Fark provides all the amusement one needs on a Saturday night.

Well, all the amusement a person not able to drink can have.

Ten verses never preached on If only the Sunday school teacher had mentioned these, I might have been a believer.  Or not.

The top 15 strangest coincidences.  As someone who experiences a lot of deja vu and coincidence, this is kind of cool.  I believe in the attraction of people and fate.

Anyone else think that Time's
Person of the Year is super-lame?  Way to cop out, Time-Warner.  We all know it should have been Stephen Colbert!  But he just mattered.

Today I got a Holiday card from someone I am most CERTAINLY not friends with, nor will I ever be friendly with again.  It was like looking at a scar - you see the mark, but it doesn't feel like it happened to you, really. 

Here are the
Top 50 Singles of 2006.  I'd say 99% of them are puke-worthy.  Though I do dig Gnarls Barkley and I love me some JT.  Shut up.

Ahahaha!  That Laffy Taffy song is on the list!  Can anyone tell me what the hell they mean by that?  I love misogynistic rap music as much as the next 'ho (as my addiction for David Banner's
"Play" shows), but even I couldn't make that out.

I had a massage Friday - painful!  Even my facial muscles were sore; how is that possible?!  But I'm not sore at all today.  I could get used to that.

I'm tired.

Hope you're having a good weekend!
quidditchgrrl: (Grr!)
Dear asshole idiot driver with Michigan plates,

When a State Trooper comes screaming down the interstate, lights and sirens blaring, it is customary to SLOW DOWN and PULL OVER TO THE RIGHT. Pacing me so that I can't move out of the way is not only dangerous, but a good reason for me to sideswipe you and run you off the road.

Fortunately, jamming the gas and cutting you off did the trick.

No love, and waiting to kick your ass on the 18th,

In other news, the Rolling Stone with Jon and Stephen on the cover was slated for delivery today. I haven't gotten my issue! Wah!

Quote of the day: "I bought some meth, but I threw it away." AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Good one.

Whatever. Have a good weekend! :D
quidditchgrrl: (Middle aged homos)
I know many of you have mentioned that you appreciate this picture of Stephen:

But...he's wearing DAD SHOES. No man can possibly be sexy enough to overcome those slip-on shoes. Come on, now, ladies.

(And his hands are hairless! I hope he never does that again. Talk about killing the mood! :P)
quidditchgrrl: (Jon is all a-squee)
It's the little things, I tells ya. Lost was actually...not bad! I might be able to get into the whole Locke/Eko thing, minus the WTFPOLARBEAR.

And - Stephen has regrown the hair on his hands! Manly hands, very nice. I can excuse the LOTR obsession for that. ;)

Plus, that wry smile last night after they showed his scruffy college pic - *melty*

OH OH OH - one of my co-workers (the Lothario I mentioned in my last post) has promised me a ticket for a second Daily Show/Jon Stewart event that is happening on the night of the reading! *does crazy dance of joy* That just rules.

This also rules - the septemberfund.org's commercial.

I feel much better today than I did yesterday. Keith Olbermann eases the pain. I'm sure he'll be one of the first to go.

My fondest wish: headline for January 21, 2009: "Former President Bush II Arrested for Crimes Against Humanity, Cheney Already In Custody". A girl can dream, can't she?
quidditchgrrl: (Eat it - Stephen is so better than ALL o)
In case you're not COMPLETELY EFFING SICK of commentary on Stephen's WHCD spiel (or, like me, can never get enough of that TDS clip with the banana):

Stephen Colbert Music Extravaganza

Sorry to my flisters who have now seen this rec'ced like 472395682618 times...
quidditchgrrl: (Stephen Goes to Washington)
I wanted to go to bed early last night. I've been too worried and too amped to sleep. *sigh*

I did manage to tear myself away from the computer and sit on the couch to watch TDS/TCR, because I felt like I needed to see them giggling. I wasn't disappointed!

Is it just me, or was last night the first time Stephen has ever kissed a woman on-screen?! Still, hot. (That wasn't his wife, right? Lucky, lucky girl.)

But now, I am le tired. And I can't have a nap.

Writing yet another re-training document for an employee who is about as useful as overcooked spaghetti. The most frustrating part? That *I* did this part of his training, but he has completely forgotten everything he's learned in the last two months. It's like he has short-term memory loss; every day is like his first day on the job. But we can't just let him go, oh no! We have to retrain him for the 6483651206th time. *headdesk*
quidditchgrrl: (Eat it - Stephen is so better than ALL o)
Wow. I was in a chat room during the WHCD, and I was THE OLDEST ONE THERE.

I am now outside the age demographic for The Daily Show and Colbert Report. :((

Maybe I should look into purchasing long-term care insurance. Plan to leave a pretty corpse?

I thought Stephen did great. Fuck those elitist Washington insiders. Helen Thomas rocks.

Friending frenzy to ensue from AIM chat. Please feel free to friend me, or not, as the mood strikes you. I automatically friend back, unless you're a known psycho or an unknown quantity.

quidditchgrrl: (Eat it - Stephen is so better than ALL o)
I am watching CSPAN & the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Observations:

Valerie Plame is BEAUTIFUL. Femme fatale, indeed.

OMG, Anna DeVere Smith and the dude from Radio & TV Museum?! Odd couple...

Ben Rothlisberger? Ookay. HOLY SHIT! Ludacris! *ROFL* Maybe he and O'Reilly will duke it out in person tonight.

They just showed Stephen and his wife (who is thin and good-looking, darn it). He looks a little nervous, but he can still get that eyebrow up!

This is better than the Academy Awards, because I recognize more people and I hiss less at the people I don't like. More A listers here, too, and fewer handlers.

Stephen will take the stage at 10:25pm. Then TV Funhouse at 11:30pm. AAAAND, 60 Minutes interview tomorrow night. All Stephen all weekend long!

quidditchgrrl: (Fangirly joy)
Strangers With Candy Trailer, w00t! June 28 (finally)! *pathetically excited*

And, TAD was on Cobert this week! *loves on Paul*

Continuing with the slashiness, I read a hot one-shot today: Headlines by [livejournal.com profile] dramaphile. It's Harry/Colin, which is certainly not a pairing that I would pick up on a whim. But it's, well, yeah. Hot. Read, perv, review. Repeat as necessary.

Ta, y'all. Daily Show is on!
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*
quidditchgrrl: (Eat it - Stephen is so better than ALL o)
I should have worn a sign to today's Rainbow reception that said, "I was burnt out and needed a break. That's ALL." Possibly I should have made a blanket announcement on the website as well. Yeesh! The gossip-mongers went home disappointed, I'm sure.

It was much fun, however. I'm mentally tired but glad I went - I doled out punch and compliments for the most part.

Other randomosity:

See? You CAN have rational, well-thought out dialogue about abortion. Then again, most of the people reading my journal aren't wanktards, so I'm not surprised.

Watched Domino last night. Pretty good - I'd forgotten how much I like Mickey Rourke. He's kind of in the same class as Gary Busey, only without the empty-sober face and botox. I'm becoming less of a Keira Knightley fan, however, even though she did a good job here.

How pathetic is my love of this picture? Yes, I think pasty man-legs are sexy. Shoot me (please).

Hope you all are having great weekends catching up on life (or, in my case, the second season of MI-5)!
quidditchgrrl: (It's all over save the giggling)
Happiness is...

Taking an XXL dress (from Target, no less) into the dressing room, then changing it for XL, then again for L before it fits.

The spontaneous laughter that comes from simply by watching someone else experience joy.

Finding a $44 skirt on sale for $9.99 - and it fits.

New Episode of TDS, post-Oscars.

A new [livejournal.com profile] stephen_paul community.

Irony is...

Your boss possibly applying for a job which supervises the job YOU'RE applying for. At least we're a good team already. 8-|
quidditchgrrl: (*wink*)
Aw, Jon did such a good job hosting tonight! Extra bonus of two (!) Stephen Colbert voice-over clips, whee!

WTF to Charlize Theron. There goes your spot on the best-dressed list, girl. Same to you, Naomi Watts.

I am getting pretty sick of crying over Brokeback Mountain. But I can't wait for the DVD so I can cry some more.

Is network TV the pits or what? There was a teaser for a reality show about INVENTORS. o.O Whut?

[livejournal.com profile] strangerface should be in charge of the Academy Awards next year. 'Cause the struggles of the pimp life are best left with agents on the red carpet.

In other news, I did something very, uh, Ned Flanders-like tonight Read more... )
quidditchgrrl: (O.o)
Phew. This has been the week of a thousand cuts, I swear it.

From the OMGWTFCAR files: This is no way to regain your library privileges

In the random observation of Stephen Colbert: he's either shaved or bleached the hair on his hands. It's a weird thing to notice, but I like hair. Gives a body character. How can I entertain strange fantasies without the visual stimulation required?! :B

Also, I broke down and bought a candle warmer. Well, two. One looks like a hotplate, for smaller candles. The second is big and made for Yankee-style candles. It's like a canister, and the entire cylinder heats up and liquifies the wax. No flame, no drips, and no uneven burning. It is AWESOME. Our entire house smells SO good, even two hours after turning the warmer off. Totally worth the $19.99 + tax.

Spinning has totally taken over my life again. Grammys? Lost? (Yeah, right. I'll be watching it tomorrow before I go into work.) The only drawback is that it makes me ravenous and I have to fight not to chow down everything in sight. Kind of defeats the purpose of exercising. Bad form, body.
quidditchgrrl: (Let It Be)
Those of you who caught Stephen Colbert on Conan tonight: who was he looking at off-stage?! He seemed distracted the entire time.

If you have some extra prayers and wishes, please send them to [livejournal.com profile] megd's family. Her brother is not expected to make it through the night.
