cassildra: A silver pegasus on a purple shield. (xkcd: boom de yada)
This morning, as [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin and I huddled under the covers to fight off the cold, the topic somehow managed to swing around to the old "the internets are tubes" meme, and we tried to figure out what kind of tubes the internets are made of.

I declared that they're obviously made of fallopian tubes, because there ARE girls on the internets, and also, they have an irrational tendency to be stupid at random times of the month. (Multiple fallopian tubes = multiple uteri = ALL PMS, ALL THE TIME)

Meh, it was funnier at the time.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

(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 )

Last night was possibly the best Halloween ever. [livejournal.com profile] bluemoon_991 threw an amazing party, complete with watching TEH COOB and MSTing it, some very appropriate tarot card readings, lots of Rock Band (I'm amazed I still have a voice after that!), and the obligatory candy handing outage to kids who were trick or treating. One kid got a look at my costume and said, with wide eyes, "You're spaghetti!"

I should have given him two pieces. Unfortunately, I didn't answer the door when he knocked, so one piece it was.

I met a couple of new people; I failed to get Idaho's LJ, but [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin and I had a lot of fun flirting at the party.

I ended up spending the night somewhere I didn't expect to, but things turned out really, really well in the end.

Surprisingly, I'm running on ... loltastic hours of sleep, as in less than 1 (because we all know that sleeping in strange places causes a Nicki to not sleep), and I don't have a migraine *knock on wood*. Let's hope that I can manage to make it two BOTH parties I swung an invite to (mainly because the second invite was scored by the Associative Property of Cool, and I've got to get my awesome on). So.. here's hoping I can find a picture of want I want to wear this evening, and can jury-rig the rest. If not, well, I guess I'll let [livejournal.com profile] trebo put me in a costume.

Scary thought, that.

If you happen to have pictures of me in the FSM costume, could you please email them? I would ♥ you forever. If you don't have my email, the address is on my profile.

I should probably go shower and then crash. Or, maybe it should be the other way around.

Oh, before I forget: [livejournal.com profile] tobydog and I have finally figured out what we're doing for my birthday. He's coming up with (I think he said [livejournal.com profile] finalphoenix, or else it was [livejournal.com profile] davidmcclelland...) for lunch. We'll probably go to Sushi Too for lunch, unless someone else knows of a better place. We'll end up going to Primanti Bros. for dinner, unless someone else has a great idea for good food.

We'll be celebrating on Dec. 31, because everyone who is coming home for break will be there, and that way we can all get drunk (well, depending on age/inclination toward boozahol) and hit Tom's to watch the ball drop. Yup. Ending the night at the shittiest diner chain in town. We all know we want to watch a ball laden with Swavorski crystals drop very slowly into the new year, amirite?

It's time for me to take a huge nap, so I leave you with today's dragons. Click to your heart's content.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

ETA: Migraine, if you're gonna hit, do it now so I can try to control it. Don't fuck around, please.

Yesterday was weird as hell. The high was only 44 degrees Fahrenheit, and for a while, there was actually snow on the ground. Snow! In freaking October! What the fuck, Ma Nature?! Are you going to be cranky like this all winter? Today's high is going to be 51, and tomorrow's is going to be 64. ...I don't understand. The dog and I went out yesterday during the snow shower, and he came back in coated in the white stuff. He looked like it was mid-January. Gah.

I'm just hoping that the pressure fluxes don't screw me over with a migraine. I really want to go to the two parties I've got planned. [livejournal.com profile] bluemoon_991 made me a fabulous Flying Spaghetti Monster costume (I promise pictures!), and while the costume's great, I'm not dressing up in it twice. I have a Sekrit Plan for the party on Saturday--my costume is going to cause lulz. At least, I hope. I'm sure someone who will be there will know what I'm trying to pull off.

Dad starts chemo today. It's going to be interesting for the next six to eight weeks. I'm apologizing in advance for any crankiness or shortness that occurs. If I get like that, just tell me to shut up and make a cup of tea. ♥ I love tea, and it makes me feel better.

Okay. I need to go find television that isn't Full House.

ETA: Does anyone else find this hilariously ironic? Praying to golden statues FOR THE FUCKING LULZ.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
