Get your squire, your banner, your armor and your sword. You're gonna do just fine.
Well, there are worse things to be.
Tonight one of my mom's brothers, Boyet, is coming to stay with us. I'm not happy about this. She says it's temporary, just until he gets a job, but this is Michigan. Michigan. He was living in California with another relative, and then they had a fight and he was kicked out. When I reminded my mom of this job climate, she said if they couldn't find him a job, we're shuffling him to our screaming cousins in Chicago. Then I insinuated that her family's taking advantage of her since she's the "responsible one", since there's a cousin with us already. She denied it, but not that vehemently.
Yeah, it's mean of me, but I don't like strangers in the house. Especially annoying ones. He sleeps in the basement. Mom borrowed a mattress off a neighbor friend. It's got this huge stain on one side, but otherwise it looks pretty good, and the price is right.
Oh, right, Xmas. Got a replacement iPod(red), replacement Nintendo DS lite(blue and black), sit-up pillow thing (beige), B&N gift card(spent it on Discworld and Star Wars novels), blanket (navy blue), new earphones, and a stormtrooper key chain. Not bad.
Dragon hatched. He's named Baskerville. This dragon game, they don't die. Definitely a plus.
It snowed hugely. I wallowed outside for a while and then had to help shovel. Our driveway is huge and the snow doesn't pack well. Tired now.
"Where There's A Whip There's A Way"
Link to that incredibly sad civil war letter. They keep taking the video down, people keep re-uploading it, so this is probably best.
Oh, hey, Enjoy The Silence. I'd heard it before, but I hadn't known what it was called. (Also: Blackbolt, the man who is voluntarily mute, since the merest whisper can level his city.)
All I ever wanted, all I ever needed, is him, in my arms....
I took the What Your Name Means Numerology thing for Anj Kincaid. Then I did it for my own name. This is what I got.
This is "Take On Me Literal Version." Piiipe wrench fiiight...
Gods. The Customer Is Not Always Right. There are some gems there. This one's my favorite.
(Four elderly men enter the store. They are all at least 70, balding, and at least one has a cane.)
Manager: “Hi, what can I get for you?”
Elderly Man #1: “Are those bagels hot, young lady?”
Manager: “They’re pretty hot. They’ve been out about ten minutes.”
Elderly Man #2: “But are they as hot as us?”
I bought a two-disc version of Iron Man on the weekend; it came with a seven dollar rebate. Watched everything on it. Squee! It really is my favorite non-Star Wars movie, you know. My very favorite parts pertain to the robot arm subplot and all the Mark II suit stuff. It's just so much fun. Kind of annoying to hear that if I'd gone to Wall Mart I could have bought a version that comes with this one exclusive comic. Grr.
Also saw Wall-E in the cheap theaters. It was cute.
2. Open the book to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next seven sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST
"The three following years the city was free from the tumult of arms... I pursued my studies of every kind, day and night, with unremitting application. I lodged and boarded at my own house(where he lately died) Diodotus the Stoic; whom I employed as my preceptor in various other parts of learning, but particularly in logic, which may be considered as a close and contracted species of eloquence; and without which, you yourself have declared it impossible to acquire that full and perfect eloquence, which they suppose to be an open and dilated kind of logic."
That's only two sentences, but Cicero just goes on and on, his sentences spooling out in an endless tumult of words; each semicolon a dart of irritation, making it monumentally difficult to forget that the tome from which I am quoting is a history text. Feh. Let's see what the book a little further away has to say.
Gah, it's a page of citations, no real sentences at all! One more time.
.... I am not counting the half newspaper, I'm starting with what's under it. "She could see he got on Jackrum's nerves as well, and he had a struttiness about him, a certain- er... sockiness, as if he was really the one in charge. Perhaps it was just general unpleasantness, but...
""Corporal?" she said.
I joined two communities, metaquotes and cap_ironman . Cool.
... Gods. I found softcore Transformers porn. And against all rhyme and reason, against the laws of common sense, I liked it. I don't understand! Admittedly, I like softcore that involves snuggling and kissing and when it gets all icky I lose interest, and this was the kind of softcore I like, but these are giant robots. WHY IS THIS HOT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
Internet connection at college fails. It's wireless, but in the evenings - when I'm online - it's as slow as DSL. Or completely nonfunctional. Also I suddenly can't watch any videos. At all.
I feel so down and unhappy. Nothing is going my way today - Internet isn't the half of it. I wish I could go home.
Did this a couple days ago, didn't post.
So, joysweeper, your LiveJournal reveals...
You are... 2% unique (blame, for example, your interest in sooniwillbeinvincible) and 17% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are lonely. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.
Your overall weirdness is: 17
(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 35% of other LJers.)
Find out what your weirdness level is!
Huh. I wonder how it decided the way I relate?
Damn it. That made me cry. So sad. "Always. Always."
On a later-written note...
Eh, why not? I'll list and explain my current icons. That's a meme that's already passed me by.
My default, made by charamei. She was my beta for a good while, a year ago. Sigh. Well, I like this one. It's a KotOR icon, of Darth Revan. I really like androgynous characters for whatever reason.
This icon is of the symbol of the Sith Empire of the Star Forge, so again there's a KotOR link. I got it off of Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki. I like it for the serious simplicity it has.
charamei made this one, too. Surprise surprise, it's KotOR. I generally use this when I'm asking a question.
I um, don't remember where I got this from. In my userpic info I call it my "furry icon", but really - so far I've only used it for "I like dragons!"
Made this myself, use it randomly. I'm thinking about altering it, actually.
Casual Cat is Casual. I got this from a lolcats site and trimmed it into icon size. Used randomly.
My Phoenix Wright icon. I don't remember where I got this, either. I never used to cite this stuff.... lately I do, of course.
My WTF icon. I have the digest for this issue of Marvel Adventures. Took from nosilencehere. Thinking about dropping it in favor of the one by the same user that just has "I'm sorry, what?" for text.
Another Marvel Adventures one, taken from newnumber6. I don't use this one much at all...
My third Marvel Adventures icon. This one I took from a page on scans_daily. I like this facepalm.
Taken from ladymalchav. Manages to be both Skrully and gleeful. Gleeful icons are nice.
So of course I had to get this one, too. Love for the world. I'm pretty sure I took it from xkcd_boomdeyada.
Fangirly joy! Gotta love it. Apparently I took this from happywriter06.
I got this one from stacyx Here. (There are a lot.) It'll do. I get the "React to smile by smiling" thing from it, which is no bad thing. By now I don't know how many Cap icons I have saved on my computer. I seem to pick them up constantly. Cap's cool, though.
What did I find today but a LJ community called (okay, still can't hotlink normally, maybe if I copy-paste) brains_in_a_jar, which is about taking relationships in various fandoms and "giving one partner phenomenal cosmic powers and an itty bitty living space. Those phenomenal cosmic powers are a neural hookup to fly a spaceship and the inability to disengage it."
"Being stuck in a spaceship and feeling things as a spaceship does sounds like a pretty good deal, but it would require one to have a partner who could do things like interact face-to-face with passengers. That's where the danger and romance comes in, because if one person is confined forever to a ship and the other is not, and then they fall in love, great drama will indubitably ensue. But romance and faster-than-light travel aren't the only things here. What makes a person, beyond the physical? How do we relate with each other? When is different too different, and when isn't it? "
Just like McCaffrey's Ship Who Sang 'verse! I loved the concept in those books, but I just didn't like the writer much. Anyway, there is a story here where Wolverine is a plane. In the nineteen fifties. And befriends a child Scott Summers. Unfortunately, all the others are romance and fandoms that I'm not familiar with. Except for the Tony/Steve one that linked me to this community. And a couple Xmen ones that I didn't find interesting.
I friended it just on a matter of principle. Hells, if "Walker Imperial Ranger" ever gets finished... well, no, I probably wouldn't make a post there, it's been defunct for a year and I haven't so much as introduced myself. Sadly, there aren't any f-locked posts. Ooooh...
carmarthen - Star Wars, with Darth Vader as the ship and either Luke Skywalker or Leia Organa as the pilot
Damn it, it wasn't linked to in the comm, so I concluded it never got written. A furious search through that particular journal ensued. I hate lack of tag clouds... fortunately, there is the calender thing for 2007. Hmm. She(I'm assuming female) has a list that I'll LJ-cut.
Also, ah, she writes and links to Tamora Pierce fanfiction, and likes Kel. Ahhh. That's the pleased sigh, not the scream. And used to like Lackey a lot more than she does now! And likes dinosaurs! "Every fandom needs more dinosaurs". Awesome.
Hmm. To stalk, or not to stalk? Hells, I might just post. My other stalkedjournals haven't even warranted a mention in my posts.
So sad that apparently the brainship fic never got completed. *sigh* That's life.
You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1 song blasting on the stereo
and 1 famous person, real or fictional, fighting besides you.
Hnn. Well, I'll give it a go.
On another note, "Bam! Kapow!" is an entertaining way to spend time, with lots of comic movie news. I've seen this animated... thing.... before, I don't know what it was made for but, although it's kind of cheesy, it's also very cool. And isn't that what the goal was? Whatever they're trying to sell me, I want it.
Soooo, news about the Hulk movie. The video here has a line alluding to a Captain America cameo(! Who... who played... wha? HOW HAS THE INTERNET NOT HEARD OF THIS BEFORE?), and here they say it was cut, and will be on the DVD. Which I must buy when it comes out. Iron Man had a split-second Easter egg with that shield. I must buy that, too.
I'm hoping my friend will take me to see the movie this weekend. We texted a little on Thursday about it. She said she'd call me if she made plans. If what I've heard was true, there are a metric ton of allusions and little nods in the movie. That's what I like.
On another another note: Mass Effect.
IT IS EATING MY LIFE.
No sentient species is capitalized. We have asari, salarians, turians, volus, humans, krogan, geth, hanar, others which I can't think of - not capitalized, which is kind of weird to a Star Wars junkie, but makes some sense. I like humanity's position in the galaxy. A new race in the government, was at war with another race before the Council intervened. It's a fascinating game.
OM. NOM. NOM. LIFE EATEN.
As TVtropes said,
Needless to say, the gaming community pretty much went nuts when Ubisoft surprised everyone at their press conference/marketing event by showing a trailer for Beyond Good And Evil 2. (The news that the trailer was done in real time just made everyone foam at the mouth.)
I need to get a laughing/spazzy delight userpic.
You escaped from Moonbase Joysweeper!
You killed Karentraviss the maintenance droid.
You salvaged a Lustpuppetian deathblade, a claylithium crystal, a Full-Metal-Alchemist screwdriver and 4 galacticredits.
Score: 129"You are walking through a cramped computer core. You hear the sound of dragons echoing through ventilation shafts." "You find yourself in a gas-filled observation room. The station's computer alerts you to wings." Heh.
Played it again.

There's an html attachment, but those don't seem to work well for me.
BlahblahFish. It's fun. It's like the Babelfish game, simplified. The Babelfish game - you type something, translate it, copy it, and translate it back. This makes it so you just have to type it, and it translates and retranslates for you. Amusing. Some end up worse than others. The ones at the top of the list sometimes rendered the last word as "sound" or did odd things to pronouns, but they weren't dissimilar. I put some of the more amusing ones here.
"Your idea is better than it sounds"
Portuguese: " Its idea is better of the one than it sounds."
Russian: " Your idea more best than it zvuchayet."
Korean: " The sound is born and compared to your idea which recovers." (WTF?)
Chinese: " Your idea compares it to sound."
Japanese: " Your thought rather than sounding, is good."
Croatian: " Yours the idea of had ultra than what IT voice."
Czetch: " Yours invention is better than yon sounds."
Danish: " Yours sense is worse luck than themselves sound."
Norwegian: " Din conceived am better than it beeps."
Serbian: " Your idea 3. wis with IT BE from present better than it sound."
Slovenian: " yours idea there is sooner yound this voice."
Welsh: " ' dogs idea he is being improve I do I plumb."
Turkish: " thine thought bkz. hi better dan he sound."
and finally, almost sensibly, Latin: " Your concept is better how this sound."
The top rated/most recent things are all random profanity and lame bragging about sex. :/ I don't get the fascination, but then again I'm not a twelve-year-old boy. (Oooh, burn!)
It's fun, though. Saw it linked here. "Vorlagendoppelwielder." Heh.
"Point and laugh, kid, because he is about to do something stupid. Point and laugh."
And smiles, child, because he will make the stupid matter. And smiles.
Point and grin , babe , because he is round to get something limited. Point and grin.
shower and merriment , without rime or reason , wherefore whenas he is thereby to practice white elephant woodenheaded. shower and merriment. <-The hell?!
I point I go he laughs , he wishes , because he is being about to do something stupid. I point I go he laughs.
Spear and to laugh at kid , since he is over, upon to do anyone stupid. Spear and to laugh at.
Okay! Let's try something that doesn't make much sense in English, either! "I am He as You are He and We are now together." Bottom to top.
I to be This when You are This and We are now in one.
I am he as you are he and we are at present together.
it's me him undivulged you are him and we're we are today together.
I'm He as You're He and We're now comparison.
I is He as though You art He and Accustom art today gather.
I am He that is to say You are He and Vi is actually between them.
I being now to have us who are he together am he.
With we now together you because of the convenience me, it is that.
I will be it in proportion to you will be it and we now together.
I am him because you are him and we are now together.
I am this since you are this and are now joint.
Seven sins, seven virtues, seven wonders,
Portal. *hums happily*
"This device has been modified"
I have spent an absurd amount of time listening to this stuff. Never going to play the game; I'm terrible at FPS games. But there's just something about the insane AI GlaDOS.
Hard to resist singing "Still Alive". I'm sorry, but it is.
My computer keeps erasing bits and pieces of "Femtroopers" while I type it. And freezing. I am annoyed.
I sloganized my username a bunch of times here. Oh boy. *amused*
Better Living Through Joysweeper
You've Always Got Time For Joysweeper.
There's Only One Joysweeper.

A Joysweeper Works Wonders.
No Joysweeper, No Comment.
Savor the Flavor of Joysweeper
*laughs* Some of these are salacious to an absurd degree. Even so.
The servers of Dragon Cave are apparently always overloaded. It is irritating.
Despite setbacks, story is being written. This is good. There are some things I won't write, and some things my characters won't do, but progress is being made regardless.
Tommorrow is Xmas. For me. Family is going to the Philippines on Monday.
What can you say? All our driveway are belong to snow. We dug out in the morning, and it filled again by the time the sun set at five o'clock. Only we didn't use the stinky snowblower at night. Don't know why.
Bored... I was going to write something more serious and relevant, but that's hard when you have a bad Zero Wing parody buzzing in your skull.
