Anyway, I'm out there shoveling, and this jerkface comes zooming down my street. The driver didn't move to the other side of the road, or even slow down as they passed me, ankle-deep in slush and unable to move quickly.
If you've ever wondered what it feels like to get covered head to toe in partially-frozen road gunk, let me be the first to tell you that it's not nearly as fun as it sounds.
In other news, I am looking for a nice apartment in Arizona...
PS: Kidding about Arizona. I actually just found a new apartment about an hour further north of where I live now.
Not like the brazen website of blogging,
With untamed features causing trouble here and there,
Here at our red-themed, accessible gates shall stand
Two mighty people with torches, whose flames
Are super awesome, and their names
Suit and Geek. From their keyboards
Comes world-wide welcome; their terminals
rule the 1st Amendment's harbor which servers frame.
"Keep, brazen website, your storied pomp!" cries she
while he codes. "Give me your tired, your weird,
your geeky masses learning to code for free...
Send these, the blogless, troll-harassed to me,
I lift the pink site scheme beside the sign-up page!"
(Hermes sleeping in his litterbox wtf ferret, Hermes and Isaac being woken up by the flash from the camera. I like to call both of these "MOMMY WHY ARE YOU FLASHING LIGHTS AT
After the code push, a friend and I were heading home, and, well... this happened:
To the tune of Little Town of Bethlehem:
Oh little code push tentacles, how will we see thee writhe?
While users sleep, the coders creep and watch patches go by
but in the darkness lurketh the elder gods of old
and we will hope that we can cope
with breaking all the code
That's totally a thing that occurred.
(PS: I need a good tentacle icon.)
Because I was such a severe biter, I never got into the nail polish thing like other kids my age. Within the last year, though, I stopped biting my nails* and started liking this whole polish thing.
My most recent favorite has been this one clear polish with crazy sparkles all through it. I have it in white/clear, and in pink. I am starting to get tempted by some of the funky colors I am seeing around, though, and some of the cool manicures my friends are blogging about.
I do suspect part of my nail polish attraction is that they can be SO SPARKLY, but won't shed glitter. I am severely glitter phobic, so this feature is a major plus!
So, uh, nail polish. Yay!
* it wasn't even a conscious choice! I just looked down one day, and whoa, nails! Strange, right?
So anyway, I get home, and it's late. I hop on IRC and check the board stats, and then this conversation happens:
MissKat: bit, is now a good time to do support?
MissKat: bit, code?
MissKat: SOPHIE YOUR BOT IS BROKE.
For those who aren't in DW IRC, Fig-Bit is a bot that Sophie wrote. It is a running joke that it always picks code and DW stuff over anything else, so that conversation came as a TOTAL SHOCK!
Anyway, it's way late now, so I should probably go to bed. G'nite!
