Because she is definitely a cheese based lifeform.

We put some cheese in her bowl and then poured kibble on top. She nosed through the kibble and ate all the cheese.

I searched Google assuming there had to be a result for "Banned from Fargo". I should have known it would be provided by [livejournal.com profile] thnidu.

In order to reply to a particular LJ post, it was necessary for me first to create a new icon, so I have.

Found this on John Scalzi's "Up in the Air - Open Pimp Thread" from early last month where people are encouraged to post links to things they like.

Hipster Puppies? So cute. Probably could be profitably linked to Stuff White People Like too.

After catching up on the internet, either I am excessively excessively cranky, or the internet has been full of fail. Maybe too much of the good internet was busy in Ottawa.

(Note that no instant messaging has occurred since Thursday, so it's nothing personal to anyone.)

I am in Canada. At [livejournal.com profile] dagibbs' place, and he is an excellent host who hold an excellent party.

So I need new gloves, to go with my sojourn in the cold, cold North, and am looking for advice on what I should get. LL Bean is preferred because I tend to like them and have a $10 gift card. Other suggestions of course welcome.

Trail Model Fleece Gloves

Wind Challenger Fleece Gloves

Anybody interested in Axis & Allies or Samurai Swords tomorrow afternoon/evening? I've got lots of room, a free day/evening and it's been far too long. I can whip up food and have plenty of drinks on hand if that's interesting.

If people are interested in Munchkin etc we can do that too, but I wanted to take advantage of the free time to play something longer if possible.

Eagle of the Ninth being made into a movie

I really liked this book when I read it at 13 or so. I never thought about it being YA, but it did seem to suit me well then. Of course, so did Ayn Rand and Tom Clancy.

Anyway, should be a fun movie.

I realized I haven't updated here in quite a while, and the real answer is that I have almost nothing to say it feels like. I do post a LITTLE more often on Facebook, but I'm too lazy to manually cross-post. Is there any little widget or thing that will do it for you?

That said, I am currently trying to figure out why my spreadsheet and my AAdvantage account are in perfect agreement about the number of segments (individual flights) I've flown but 2000 Elite Qualifying Miles and 1000 Elite Qualifying Points (ie, exactly one round trip to somewhere within 500 miles of Dallas, connecting there) more recorded on the account than in my spreadsheet. It is a mystery. Which I hope is not a phantom, because I need 1000 of those EQMs at the end of the year.

Funny that

I was looking at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books and one of their ads on the right side caught my eye.

It's actually an animated ad, but here's what I saw first:
When she offers submission to the strongest wolf in town...

Werewolf Twilight???

I'd link directly to the ad (since showing people's ads without being paid for them seems pretty fair) but I can't find it again refreshing their page several times.

I just went back and read most of the LJ posts I've ever made to my journal. It was interesting. Unfortunately, lots of links were broken ( www.renporn.com isn't even mostly in the Wayback Machine).

However, I figure I'd bring back a few old things:

Bobo, the Anarcho-Syndicalist Panda.

A Quiz, and my first Bujold fanfic

Macworld San Francisco 2006 predictions from someone else on Ars

Also lots of emo and ranting about being a student, and UT, and being in New Zealand. I also seemed to get a lot more comments back then. Anyway, thanks for being with me.

Just checking in to note that today I started Tier 2 training. Should be about a 4k raise and of course, more visibility and credibility when I tell people how messed up something is.

In other news, I spent most of the evening reading Darths & Droids, a webcomic made by taking still images from the Star Wars prequel movies and pretending that they're a generic roleplaying game. The argument is that lots of the events of the movie make more sense if they were done by players desperately trying to hit every plot nail with their hammer of min/maxed stats than if they were scripted by an actual writer. It's quite compelling.

An excerpt from J. K. Galbraith's "Money" p108 :

Eighteen years later, after the panic of 1837, the New York Herald concluded that "The United States were never in such a perilous condition as they are at this moment."

In a burst of chivalrous compassion it said that that especially "We weep and mourn for the poor, blushing, weeping, defenseless, innocent, beauteous females who are involved in the general crash."

Every later panic brought similar expressions of despair and and almost equally alarming prose.

I'm at Genuine Joe's tonight, so I may be exercising Xjournal a bit and posting a lot.

[livejournal.com profile] james_nicholl has posted a NESFA "Core Reading List" of 726 authors and 3742 works.

Which is listed with incredibly arcane notes that aren't defined at all on the page:

Ackroyd, Peter
[k,Pf] n 1985 Hawksmoor

I'm trying to decide is this is the most newbie-hostile piece of web in fandom, or if I can fine something worse easily. Don't feel obligated to go looking, of course.

Let's get it out of the way: You can be a giant douche sometimes. Not that this is intentional. Despite some hedonistic tendancies, you are quite well meaning, and will try and help out peers you see as socially impaired. Just keep in mind that this help is not always needed, and that, believe it or not, there is more to life than having a good time.

When dating, stay away from Beta Females; I know you don't mean to break their hearts, but it will happen. Look for the types you don't normally go for, as they will make a better match in the long run.

You are more NORMAL than QUIRKY.

You are more LIBERAL than TRADITIONAL.

You are more DOMINANT than PASSIVE.

When picking a date, consider: The Rarity (QTAF), The Renaissance Faire Wench (QLAF), or The FemiNazi (NLAF).

Avoid: Any Beta Females
