cassildra: Professor Farnsworthy saying "Brains? I told you not to use those things!" (futurama: don't use brains)
Benet: that's pretty good. Do people actually staple envelopes a lot?
Nicki: There's one Financial Advisor who does it all. the. time.
Nicki: I'm looking at you, [name redacted]
Benet: LOL
Nicki: Seriously
Nicki: I had to ask my boss to ask [name redacted] not to tape his envelopes shut.
Benet: heh.
Nicki: He'd make sure to get EVERY CORNER of EVERY POSSIBLE OPENING and I was like :|
Benet: LOL
Benet: maybe he had a bad experience?
Nicki: dude
Benet: maybe?
Benet: what about papercuts?
Nicki: I get cut on paperstock ALL THE TIME, and I haven't gotten traumatized yet!
Benet: well, ok.
Benet: but I do think that sending an important piece of mail and having it come open in transit would probably leave you taping pretty assiduously for awhile
Nicki: well, okay.
Nicki: but.
Nicki: when you have the sealytabs that you wind string around, those are pretty good at preventing random openings
Benet: hmm, true.
Nicki: if one comes OFF, I can see taping an envelope closed.
Nicki: But that happens pretty rarely
Benet: fair.
Nicki: I am not anti-tape. I go through about a roll of scotch tape a week.
Nicki: I am anti stupid taping.
Nicki: and anti stupid stapling.
Benet: makes sense
Benet: I'm kinda punchy so the phrase "anti stupid stapling" is somehow making me laugh
Nicki: This whole conversation is making me laugh and probably will be going on DW, if you don't mind
Benet: no that's fine.
Nicki: ossim.

[ profile] jameel: He's totally the bruiser of the group.
[ profile] cassildra: Oh, of the GROUP.
[ profile] cassildra: Yes.
[ profile] cassildra: That's not actually a surprise. Trevor's too much of an officer in the AA to actually be effective

Dad took rent money out of my account yesterday, which infuriated me, because I told him at the beginning of last month that I was moving out. He said he'd put it back since I called my mother to talk to her, but then, I got an email this morning...

I am glad you called yesterday. Your dad is on one of those kicks where everyone needs to call me every holiday. Don't ask me where he is coming from. He says he will put your money back when you come and get your stuff. You know if it were up to me, I would not care. We could box the stuff up and leave it in that room, but he is such an a_ _. I pray your new year will be the best one yet for you and Trevor too. He told me he would take care of you, and I believe he will. Have fun at your party tonight. I have 1 small box and 2 boxes paper comes in. Call and let me know when you are coming, I have some kraut & pork for you. Can't wait to see you on Tuesday!!

A conversation I just had with my boyfriend:

[ profile] cassildra: I really am pretty certain that I won't see that money.
[ profile] blackpaladin: Not even when we get your stuff out?
[ profile] cassildra: I never told you about the $2000, did I?
[ profile] blackpaladin: No. No, you didn't.
[ profile] cassildra: Oh, yeah. When I first got disability, I got a little over $2k in back pay. I can't have that much money in an account, or else I lose the disability.
[ profile] cassildra: So I was stupid and trusting, and had Dad put the money into cashier's checks, and put them in his safe deposit box.
[ profile] cassildra: Fast forward to two years ago. I tell Dad I'm moving out, and ask for the money. He says that he'd used it for taxes after he'd asked me, and he gave me the impression that he'd never pay me back.
[ profile] cassildra: I may have said yes. I do have gaps in my memory.
[ profile] cassildra: I would have, however, made sure that he would have paid me back.
[ profile] cassildra: That's a lot of money I'll never see.
[ profile] cassildra: I've been trying to move out for at least two years, and he's always managed to block me before. I think that's why he's so angry, because he lost his "control" over me.
[ profile] blackpaladin: How has he "blocked" you?
[ profile] cassildra: The first time he took the money that was mine, that I was relying on, to move to Virginia with a friend. Other times just fell through and/or he made me feel guilty for leaving Mom.
[ profile] cassildra: He's mad that he's lost his little Cinderella.

And yes, once, while he was drunk and Mom dared to go off and have a good time with her sisters and not be miserable at home with him, he did tell me that I was his Cinderella.

It's been requested that I find something else to do, so I think today will be my re-entry into Milliways. I think I can channel Faye this afternoon, at least for a bit.
cassildra: A silver pegasus on a purple shield. (lolz: where is your god now)
(10:47:30 AM) Mark: ...Huh.
(10:47:37 AM) Celestina Star: hm?
(10:47:42 AM) Mark: England invented a flying car.
(10:47:52 AM) Celestina Star: ...bwah?
(10:49:27 AM) Mark:
(10:50:04 AM) Celestina Star: bwah?
(10:50:08 AM) Celestina Star: *shock*
(10:50:51 AM) Mark: The future is here.
(10:51:08 AM) Celestina Star: WE'RE GOING TO BECOME THE JETSONS
(10:51:17 AM) Mark: We have a flying car. And a black president. The two staples of sci-fi near-future.
(10:51:48 AM) Celestina Star: TWENTY MINUTES INTO THE FUTURE... dun dun dun
(10:53:42 AM) Celestina Star: I'm tempted to post this using my Richard Dawkins "where is your god now" icon
(10:55:00 AM) Mark: Heh.

so yeah, partial GIP, partial BWAH?

What's one of the geekiest things you can do when setting out upon a new relationship?

Compare yourself and your significant other to a canonical pairing in a video game with a tiny as hell following, of course!

(7:55:48 PM) Benling: I'm very happy for you, but i have to ask, what were the two of you dressed as? i want to see how funny the two costumes bumbing uglies is
(7:56:16 PM) Celestina Star: sec.
(7:56:54 PM) Celestina Star: PICTURES OF US
(7:57:36 PM) Benling: XD
(7:57:40 PM) Benling: FSM AND A PIRATE!
(7:57:55 PM) Celestina Star: Actually, he's a character from the one SCA thing he does.
(7:58:07 PM) Celestina Star: Street performer type. He's the lecherous old man. XD
(7:58:12 PM) Benling: Still a pirate
(7:58:14 PM) Celestina Star: Which just made it better.
(7:58:17 PM) Celestina Star: HE'S GUILDER?
(7:58:28 PM) Celestina Star: I'm dating Guilder!
(7:58:32 PM) Benling: guilder didn't where a hat
(7:58:39 PM) Benling: but that would make you clara
(7:58:41 PM) Benling: so it works
(7:58:43 PM) Celestina Star: Or a codpiece, yes I know
(7:58:47 PM) Celestina Star: I totally am a Clara. :(

(1:49:02 PM) Celestina Star: so do you want to hear something I find vaguely hilarious?
(1:49:05 PM) David: sure
(1:49:45 PM) Celestina Star: So you're from this area, and are doing computer programmy things in the DC area, right?
(1:50:06 PM) Celestina Star: The guy I'm seeing is from the DC area and is a programmer in McMurray.
(1:50:33 PM) David: i have no idea where mcmurray is
(1:50:36 PM) David: but that's really crazy
(1:50:40 PM) Celestina Star: South of Pittsburgh, but yeah
(1:50:47 PM) Celestina Star: I was amused by it.
(1:51:04 PM) Celestina Star: "One of my best friends from high school and my boyfriend switched places! That is craziness!"
(1:51:09 PM) David: lol
(1:51:21 PM) Celestina Star: Ah. Finding amusement in little things.
(1:52:03 PM) Celestina Star: And it's 2 o'clock, I've done my chores, and I'm bored. Tonight is book club, but until then, I got nothin'.
(1:53:00 PM) David: i haven't had anything to do all day, i can feel for you
(1:53:15 PM) Celestina Star: What, no programming projects?
(1:53:30 PM) David: it's interesting how it works
(1:53:40 PM) David: there were never any defined requirements for my project
(1:54:05 PM) David: so i spend probably 95% of my time waiting to hear back from my project mentor on questions i have that stop my productivity
(1:54:16 PM) Celestina Star: Lovely.
(1:54:29 PM) David: and my mentor's been up in the secret clearance labs all day
(1:54:34 PM) David: so i can't even ask him in person today
(1:54:49 PM) Celestina Star: Fun, except not.
(1:55:26 PM) Celestina Star: The life of a computer programmer--5% actually programming, 95% jerkin' it
(1:55:37 PM) David: yeah, that's more or less it

So I am apparently Not Up to going to either party tonight, which is fine. What's not fine is that Dad's pissy over stupid things--I honestly have no idea what--and the fact that Mom has a migraine and won't take another Imitrex is worrying. I'm going out tomorrow though, unless of course I end up waking up with a migraine...

I have also stolen an old meme from... a good few of you, actually. meme )

And a conversation with my sister in law about Sarah Palin...

I used lienne as the Canadian mentioned in the post, for the record )
