Usually they’re something along the line of “Who sang that?” “What’s the name of the song?” or “WHY WON’T YOU TELL ME WHAT I JUST HEARD, RADIO PERSON!?”
This time, I know what the song is called: Ultraviolet.
I know who performed it: U2
What I don’t know is why it’s the only song listed in a file called “random music for soundtracks” in my writing folder.
I looked up the lyrics, but I still have no idea who/what characters/which ship I was thinking of when I made note of it.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate Martin’s typing—our adorable little blogger who types with two fingers and sticks his tongue out because he’s concentrating so hard on his task. Such a precious kitten.
YOU GUYS DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH THIS INFURIATES ME
MARTIN YOU HAVE MORE THAN 2 FINGERS
I essentially type with only my first and second fingers. Granted, I type A LOT more than most people, never mind Martin/John, so over the years I’ve come up with a personal system that allows me to basically touch-type with only two fingers on each hand. *Shrug* It’s one of those weird things I do that drives other people crazy — kinda like the way I hold a hammer or stand at the tee on a golf course — but it works for me.
I need these. I have people for whom they’re the perfect gift.
My favorite is:
Q: Why don’t sharks eat clowns?
A: They taste funny.
…I’d be sorry, but life’s too short for unearned guilt.
Guys this is really important.
CBS just posted an article saying that 20 states have petitioned to secede from the American union now that Obama is president again.This means, that if they reach 25,000 signatures in 30 days, the petition can be reviewed by the government administration.
The states that have petitioned to secede are as the following: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
Texas already has over 22,000 signatures and if they have enough support they could very well be removed from the United States.
This is very important guys, please signal boost this, tell your parents. This effects the entire country and everyone needs to know.
okay bye texas
I have one question for the people who think that their state should secede: Where’s the money for your new government going to come from? Is said government going to apply for foreign aid from the US? How are you going to handle the import/export of goods? Are you going to give back any/all of the US federal funds you currently hold? What about borders, and how are you going to enforce any sort of order? Not with US troops — they’re no longer part of your concern once you do secede.
I honestly want to know, because I have this idea for a story. Said idea requires that the US breaks up into at least three discrete entities, which means that I need to know about…everything required to run a country. Not just government—that’s important, yeah—but things like how the free-market economy works (or is supposed to work, anyway). Rights to privacy and free speech. Customs inspections, trade, tariffs, embargoes and agreements. NAFTA! How does that work? What’s it for, why, and if it actually does work. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg — it doesn’t cover defense forces or diplomacy or any of the million other things the government does.
Do these people have any idea how many teeny-tiny parts there are in the clockwork mechanism that is a country? I’m pretty sure that’s a resounding no.
I have sincere doubts that any of the states will ever leave the union (and I’m surprised that my own state isn’t on that list, to be honest). If it does happen, however, I don’t think that it will end well for the state(s) in question.
Sherlock - Closer
HOLY CRAP. Okay, so Serenity S has apparently made ALL of my favorite sexy vids.
PLEASE, JUST FOR ME! WATCH THIS!!
this has to be the best johnlock video ever!!
To paraphrase: This…is amazing. Fantastic. (Since it is NIN’s Closer, there’s one “bad” word, just in case you’re at work. Then again, if you can get to Tumblr from work…
But boy howdy, I know it when I do. *wince* I mean, it’s bad enough that my math skills suck so much that they mislead me into believing that I had enough money to cover the few expenses I’ve incurred in the last couple of days. Having to explain that I gave perfectly good money to complete strangers for a convention that I can’t even attend and -that’s- what put me in the red is just the painful icing on the quit-looking-at-me-like-that cake.
And yeah, I know it could be worse.
There’s a scene in Howl’s Moving Castle where Howl is basically Sheetlock so I redrew it from a screengrab, except Sherlock is sick and John is offering tea but probably Sherlock will scoff because it’s chamomile or something he doesn’t appreciate, the snot. Howl and Sherlock are the same person.
Sorry I have been totally missing and non-updatey. I’ve been busy as all hell. Two Coffees is not cancelled or anything, it’s just on a ‘I’ll update when I have the time’ schedule right now. Also my inbox is full of unanswered messages right now I’m sososososo sorry I just have attention span problems okay I promise I still love you <3
*Blink* You know, Sherlock and Howl really are ridiculously similar, especially at the beginning of their respective stories. Ugh, now I’m beginning to want to go through and pick out all of their similarities, while I shooooold be focusing on rewriting instead!
more proof of my weirdness!
I was just looking up pulse oximetry and pulse oximeters for something I’m working on. I also needed to look up blood pressure and the various methods for obtaining readings. In the course of doing so, I came across Korotkoff sounds. Now I really want to get a stethoscope so that next time I go to the doctor, I can listen to my own Korotkoff sounds!
