plenty of nothin’

I am a bit scattered in the head today so I’ll just post my usual randomosity.

The wii party last night was SO FUN. Brother, PiC, and Break Boy were all there. We rocked out with beer (thanks, Brother!) and pizza until about 10pm when everyone else went home then Break Boy and I caught up on work (ohhhh, the shitocracy) and life and played some face offs and battles. He and I have the same problem, we can’t limit ourselves when it comes to GH3. “Just one more song.” An hour later and we’re still playing. We need a chaperone. Although, honestly, what’s wrong with playing GH3 till midnight? I took video and pics but I’m not quite sure when I’ll be posting them. (Please don’t beg. It’s not pretty when you beg. When people beg at me it actually backfires and makes me take longer to do something. So, please, patience is your virtue.)

I am trying to clean up my place today so I don’t have to think about chores for the rest of the weekend. It’s great living alone, but I always know whose turn it is to clean up the mess. :winks:

I am going to see Cloverfield this weekend and I’m pretty fucking psyched about that. I have been waiting for this movie since back when they were only showing a small clip of the first few minutes and weren’t even giving it a name. I really hope it lives up to its whale with crabs legend.

It’s really fucking cold in my bedroom right now. What the hell. It’s 27 F out.

Kristen taught me how to give the kittos box rides. They hang out in a box, I lift the box, I carry the kitty around in the box. Everybody wins. I have given Ripley and Georgie a few box rides. Allie is confused and jumps out of the box. I’m enjoying this new game.

I got “Freaks and Geeks” from Netflix since I’ve heard good stuff about that show, and like several of the actors in it, but have never seen said show. I am looking forward to… uh, stating the obvious… geeking out on it.

I could really use an Americano right now. Anyone wanna go get one for me? Feeling a lil lazy.

I had a really weird dream about my mom this morning. The details aren’t important, but the sum of the dream is that I really need to call my mom and check in. She worries about me but tries not to be all up in my business (heeeeehehehehe) so it’s kind of me to reach out and just offer the business.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to do the 2nd annual Poppy awards. I’ll be reminding you all what last year’s categories are then asking you for suggestions for this year. Then I will shorten the list to the awards I feel like giving, make an award icon, choose the people I think deserve to win said award, and let you know you won. It’s a lot of fun doing all that. I did the actual awards reveal in February last year, so I’m mentioning this early and will get the ball rolling soon.

I clearly enjoy talking about myself.

k, bye!

Do I look fat in these?*

Thanks to Tug for giving me something to post today. Sadly, I’m posting this live, because I’m not tired. Again. Eeeeeeek. Tomorrow (err, today) is gonna suck.

1. What is your occupation?
Beautiful Geek

2. What color are your socks right now?

My fan keep my computer cool, and the Daft Hands video. :smiles:

4. What was the last thing that you ate?
Lindt chocolate truffles from my brother and SIL.

Of course I can. What kind of stupid question is this? :grins: (It’s what I learned on.)

6. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
It is taking me longer than 30 seconds to remember, so I’ll just say: I dunno. My mom?

7. Do you like the person who sent this meme to you?
She didn’t send it but if I were a man she and I would be married.

33!

Coffee in the morning, fountain soda Coke the rest of the day.

Hmmmm. I actually really enjoy watching a lot of sports, but I shall pick the controversial Women’s Billiards as my favoritest.

My birthday. :grins:

*Trust me, don’t ever answer that. It’s a trick question.

Kan-ye sign?

This is a video submission for the People’s Choice Awards. Hang in there for a bit and you will finally see the genius of this video:

Thanks to K for addicting me to it. This video has almost 12 million views on YouTube, so I’m not surprised if you’ve seen it already.

Hopefully I’m dead asleep from the Nyquil Dawg suggested and not actually still up watching this video over and over and over again. (I :pinkpuffyheart: future dated posts!)

A mixed message

Look at my Cincinnati chili dogs I made last night from the spice packet Kristen sent me all the way from Canada. (She’s originally from Ohio.)

Then look at the drinks you probably want to avoid if you’re watching your girlish figure:

* White Russian, made of coffee liqueur, vodka, and cream, it has 863 calories!
* Mudslide, which is basically a White Russian with the addition of Bailey’s Irish Cream and chocolate syrup. No wonder it’s 851 calories.
* Hot Buttered Rum Latte exceeds the recommended daily intake of sugar by 36 grams.
* Chocolate Martini is probably the least evil on the list because “chocolate is healthy.” It’s also 438 calories.
* Admittedly, we had never heard of the Blushin’ Russian, and wonder why not because it has delicious Amaretto in it! Oh yeah, maybe because we’d rather take 404 calories as a Big Mac.
* Mulled Wine is bad?!?! We were crushed, but if you make it yourself and cut back on the sugar, you’ll do better than the usual 356 calories and 40 grams of carbs.
* Eggnog, surprisingly, is lower than the previous half dozen drinks with only 343 calories, but we think it’s evil comes from the fact that you drink at least one every night, everywhere you go, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.
* Brandy Alexander has 297 calories. Oh well. There goes another luscious creamy drink.
* At 210 calories, Irish Coffee is the slimmest of the cocktails, but let’s not get crazy. It’s still 210 calories that you could down in 20 seconds (you’ll also burn your mouth, but that’s not the point, now is it?)
