Okay, soooo...

I'm much with the lameness these days. I don't really feel like maintaining a journal for anything RL and especially not anything political/social right now. I baleeted tehbetsusernaem because practically all I did with it was whine.


I'll add all you guys to blogosaurus - not because I expect you to care about my dinosaur babble but just for the purposes of keeping up with you. :) Because I do intend to start updating that once again. I might make a journal just for fiction-posting, too. Fandom stuff, I'm not really sure - it might go here or on JF or possibly both, we shall see.

Even though I don't intend to update this journal much, at least for the time being, I'm not going to baleete because it has my raptor manifesto of greatness some stuff that some people might actually find interesting/fun/useful.

Sorry about all this, guys.

Is anyone else following the Strikethrough 2.0 saga, including the burr86 incident?

I gotta say, I'm pretty torn. On one hand, burr86's comment was funny, and I highly doubt he was being entirely serious. On the other hand, if I ever mocked a customer where the customer could see or hear me, even if what I said was funny and not entirely serious, I'd get bitchslapped by management so fast and hard my head would not just spin, but go flying clean off my shoulders.

New journal... sort of.

tehbetsusernaem is going to be my new journal for personal life stuff. There's not much there yet, but there's going to be when I stop being lazy.

From this point on out, this journal will be just for fandom. So if you don't particularly care about fandom, you should probably unfriend this journal and add tehbetsusernaem. (Likewise, if you're just here for fandom and don't care about my RL, you don't need to do anything.)

I'll add anyone back who adds me. :)

Deathly Hallows thoughts & journal-related questions.

Deathy Hallows thoughts. Squeeing, RANDOM ALLCAPS and spoilers ahead! PROCEED WITH CAUTION.Collapse )

I've decided I'm going to have separate accounts for my fandom stuff and my RL updates/random political or philosophical babble. There's a fair amount of reasons for this - some of the people on my flist now either aren't in fandom or aren't in MY fandoms, RL people have been asking to see my LJ but I don't want to show them the fandom parts, my weird quasi-OCD issues just want them separate, etc. Now, since I can't make any decisions ever at all without input from the Internet, I have questions for you, oh great and terrible flist.

(It was going to be a poll, but I'm too lazy to switch to a Plus account just this second. I may still ask the same question in poll form later.)

Should I:
  • keep good_odds as a personal journal and make a new journal for fandom-related stuff?
  • keep good_odds as a fandom journal and make a new journal for personal/political-related stuff?
  • ditch good_odds and make two new separate journals, one for fandom and one for personal stuff?

    Also, which journal (if either) would you like to friend/be friended by/stay friended by?

    Very busy day today! Have (paying) job now, plus other things. Won't be around much. I'll give my full Deathly Hallows review tomorrow, but for now I just want to say that, overall, I liked it, although there are certain deaths that made me the absolute opposite of happy. >:( The Ron/Hermione-ness was actually pretty cute, though! So yay for that. Also, was it just me or was there a whole lot of BADASSERY in this book? I really liked that.

    And yeah, I was one of the people who read scans of the book before it was released. Heh heh. But I decided to wait until the book was actually released before sharing my thoughts, so that I can be in sync with my flist. And yeah, I'm going to read the actual, physical copy anyway. I'll be surprised if there's a single person who read the scans who doesn't. Maybe a couple people who hated it, but... no, I bet even they end up buying it.

    Ummm... I was going to say something else but I forgot what. :\ Dammit.

    [batshit rant]

    I'm so fucking tired of furries comparing being a furry to coming out as gay. It's moronic and, frankly, it's INSULTING on multiple levels. And no, this isn't an "Ew furries are weird!" thing, this is a "being made fun of on the Internet is NOTHING AT ALL like real life homophobia, so stop fucking saying it is" thing.*

    What annoys me even more is when dumb gay people encourage this bullshit by saying things like, "I'm gay/bi, so I know how you feel!" You colossal fucking fuckheads, that is the wrong answer. You should be saying, "I'm gay/bi, and I think you're a fucking idiot for thinking the two are remotely comparable."

    Actually, to be honest, it kind of bugs me when people compare having a sexual fetish like being a furry or being into BDSM or whatever to being gay at all, even if it's not in a ZOMG PERSECUTION way. It seems like the comparison devalues being gay to just sex, which always pisses me off, because really, there's more fucking to it than that. Also, being gay and being a furry/into BDSM/into scat/whatever aren't exactly mutually exclusive. Your sexual fetishes and your sexual orientation are separate fucking things.

    [/batshit rant]

    *Other real life things to which being made fun of on the Internets has been compared, but actually is not like at all: racism, sexism, Hitler, the war in Iraq, child abuse, theft, rape, murder, genocide of any kind, having a false police report filed against you, sushi, childbirth.

    Actually, being made fun of on the Internets isn't even quite like being made fun of in real life. You can't just close the window if people are mocking you in real life.

    Writer's Block: By Any Other Name

    If you could rename yourself in real life, what would you choose, and why?

    I would rename myself Princess Deinonychus Ice Cream Laserbeams, because that would only MAKE ME FREAKIN' AWESOME.

    This is pretty neat.

    As much as most sea creatures bother me, cephalopods, for whatever reason, generally don't. HURRAH FOR OCTOSQUID.

    Everyone keeps asking me for "the real reason" I'm volunteering when I tell them it's just because I want to.

    Is it really that strange to volunteer just because? I always thought it was pretty common practice.
