Overheard at dinner: "So...what time is my surprise birthday party at tomorrow?"

Yeah...somebody ruined the surprise. Whoopsies!

P.S. And no, it wasn't me. One of the birthdays being celebrated is mine.

And on a completely different topic, for those of you who don't follow my twitter updates, I managed to procure two tickets for the Lady Gaga concert in February. I'm taking my sister, who is looking forward to it just as much as I am.

I meant to write this post a few days ago, but time seemed to have gotten away from me again...

Labor Day Weekend was awesome. [ profile] doomsey and I drove out to Quincy, Illinois-- a town on the Mississippi River-- for [ profile] forestdruid's wedding. Since [ profile] doomsey was best man, he left on Thursday to help [ profile] forestdruid and his soon-to-be wife run errands and, in general, get things set up for the ceremony on Sunday. I left late Friday morning with [ profile] doomsey's parents and we pulled into Quincy just in time for dinner. My in-laws got dinner on their own, but [ profile] doomsey and I ate with the bride and groom's relatives. They were an awesome bunch, so I had tons of fun. I also got to practice speaking German with A's father. (Ich kann nicht so gut Deutsch sprechen. Did I say that right?)

[And since this gets kind of long...I'm going to have to put it all behind some cuts. Feel free to jump to the parts that sound interesting...or not read at all].

I don't do very many memes anymore, but I just had to do this one:

Give me one reason I'm going to hell.

Then post this request in your LJ, and I will tell you why YOU are doomed to eternal damnation.

This morning, I get to play Schrödinger's bird. Is it alive? Is it dead? Nobody knows!

And come to think of it, why did Schrödinger have to cat a for his little experiment? Cats are hardy. If you put a cat in a box overnight, chances are that it will still be alive in the morning...unless you poison it. Now, birds. That's a different story. Just put a sick birdie in the box, leave it overnight, and I say that he has a 50/50 chance of making until morning. No poison required!

So. What do you think? I leave it up to you. Is it going to be alive when I wander out there in a few minutes?

Yay! I finally finished updating my LJ. (does a happy dance)

I keep meaning to write this stuff down, but I oftentimes get distracted and never get around to it. This weekend was jam packed. Here's what [ profile] doomsey and I did:

Had dinner at my in-laws' house.

Went to a birthday party at a friend's house. Watched the Blackhawks game, drank wine, and had Hot Sex. The drink! Not the act! Get your mind out of the gutter! Oh...and I just tried googling it to see if I could get a picture of the bottle. Not a good idea. Let's just say that you can find it at your local liquor store and leave it at that. And for those who are curious, it tastes kind of like a Mudslide, only with more cinnamon. It's yummy if you like sweet drinks.

Went to my in-laws' house to celebrate what would have been [ profile] doomsey's grandfather's 100th birthday had he still been alive. This was originally planned for Monday, but got changed at the last minute.

After dinner, [ profile] doomsey and I headed to Scott and Aimee's house. [ profile] doomsey fixed their computer-- turns out that it was a program that was slowing the computer down and not a virus like they had feared. We also sat and talked until about midnight. It was fun.

In the afternoon, we invited [ profile] doomsey's mother over to watch the latest Doctor Who and Doctor Who Confidential. Spoilers below the cut )

Went to Jason and Jori's house for horror movie night. They were showing Dead Snow-- a Nazi Zombie movie, a Zombie Nazi movie, or whatever you want to call it. [ profile] doomsey didn't care for it, but then again, [ profile] doomsey was never a big fan of horror movies. What I particularly liked about the film was the mixture of horror and comedy. There were also many references to Terminator, Indiana Jones, and Red Dawn. Minor spoilers below the cut )

* First human 'infected with computer virus' -- Wild! (Swiped from [ profile] popfiend)

* This last one is epic. The Republicans have made themselves a little website asking internet denizens for help creating an agenda. As you can see from the article, it's not working out for them so well. Here's my contribution:

"Institute prayer in public schools. Make students bow down to Cthulu, the All Powerful, at the beginning of each school day."

[ profile] nekosensei <-- thinks we need lesson plans saying something to the effect that God may have put you into this world, but by golly, Cthulu is going to take you out of it! (Edited to add that the link was swiped from [ profile] rm and [ profile] stardragonca)

[Edit: And after remembering that I had this LJ icon, I went back in and added "Harold Saxon for President!" under the heading "National Security"].

* I spent some time reading ahead in my German book yesterday. So...I get the impression that the rules for making masculine and neuter nouns plural are arbitrary. Oy vey!

* Why didn't I have any math teacher like these when I was growing up? I the only one who thought that was funny? Then again, my sense of humor has always been skewed to the slightly sinister...

* [ profile] doomsey bought a new wireless for the house because the one we currently have was being flaky. Then, it started working again, and it was working long enough that [ profile] doomsey considered returning it to Amazon when it came. And...I was using my computer last night when it flaked out again. Nope...we're not returning it to Amazon, dooms. Sorry to disappoint.

* Teaser for an animated zombie movie. Oooh...I like! (Swiped from [ profile] popfiend)

* I have to stop playing on the computer. It's not very productive. Sheesh!

* Just found out that they closed the restaurant where [ profile] doomsey and I got married. So sad. It was a beautiful place-- the grounds were gorgeous and just perfect for an outdoor wedding-- and the food was out of this world. They had a trout farm on the grounds and served fresh trout at dinner.

* Both Flash and my email client crashed. Guess it's time to hit post and reboot...

* The cats don't like Lady Gaga. They have no taste. (I don't usually listen to a lot of current pop songs, but Lady Gaga is the bomb)

* (No really...if you try to sing along, they'll both start poking at you. Arwen will go so far as to hiss and bite).

* Oh...and they don't like Queen either. As I said, no taste.

* "Ra Ra Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh. Ro Ma Ro- Ma Ma Ma. Ga Ga Oh La La..."

*'s the song in question. Another song to check out is Paparazzi, which has the guy who plays Eric on True Blood in it. Anyhoo, the costumes remind me of stuff that Bowie used to do. That and she's kind of twisted...

* The Dresden Dolls are another amusing group. They consider themselves cabaret punk.

* Boring grading is boring.

* Just got a call from my best friend. The doctors told her she was able to take her baby home today. Yay! Unfortunately, she's not letting anyone except family come over and visit until April because she was told that his immune system is going to be shaky for awhile. She doesn't want him to come down with RSV, which could be life threatening. So...that means I won't be able to give her the baby blanket I made for her until then. Oh well.

Hmm...I should call her up later and find out if it would be okay to drop it off at her mom's house. She can bring it over to her the next time she sees her.

* Shutting the computer off so [ profile] doomsey can put memory on it. Must hit post so I don't lose the entire thing. Will edit later.

* Woke up this morning to snow. And it's still snowing. Well, today's commute is going to be fun.

* The air raid sirens are going off. Looks outside. Oh no! It's a snowpocalyspse!

Wait. You mean the sirens always go off on the first Tuesday of the month? Okay...never mind then...

* We're only supposed to get one to two inches of snow today, so today won't be so bad, thankfully.

* Just got back from voting in the primaries. I decided to vote for the local guy for Lieutenant Governor even though he doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell. If he doesn't win any of the seats he's running for-- he's also on the ballot for precinct committeeman too-- I'm half inclined to write him and suggest that he run for mayor when those elections come up. The guy we currently have in there apparently thinks the economy so bad that he's decided to say fuck it and ask for divine intervention.

* It's late. Time for bed. I took Ambien, and then went downstairs to take care of the things that had to be harvested in Farmville. I figured that I'd be ready to go to bed by the time I was finished, but no, the sillies hit sooner. By the time I was finished, I didn't know whether I was going or coming. Accidentally planted some strawberries. They take four hours to grow so they're probably going to be all rotted by the time I wake tomorrow. Yeah...I'm not with it. Okay...time to get up stairs and go to bed before I start doing something silly like wandering down the street looking at all the pretty lights.

* Well this sucks. No more July 3rd fireworks in Chicago. Oh well...

* snerk*

* Wo ist meine Hose?
Oh wait...never mind. I found them.'s been that kind of morning.

* [ profile] emygination just sent me a link to this. I'm going to have to make it.

* I tried calling my friend who had her baby on Saturday. Still haven't heard anything from her. I hope things are still going okay...

* Finally got around to watching the State of the Union address. One would hope that that speech would light a fire under Congress' butt so that they pass health care reform already.

* What? No more questions?

* This one is swiped from [ profile] popfiend. Everyone needs one of these for that moment of sheer frustration.

Hmmm...maybe if I keep the "Post an Entry" page open in a separate tab, I'll be apt to post more often. I'm trying to keep up the best I can with LJ, but I've been swamped lately. I'm hoping things will calm down in the next week or two.

* A few days ago, [ profile] doomsey suggested that I start writing letters to random politicians to light a fire under their butts about National Health Care Reform. Well, yesterday, I sent out letters to Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, and Roland Burris. I still have to pen a letter to our representative, Peter Roskam, but I'm busy at the moment so it's going to have to go on the back burner for awhile. I'm not going to be too upset if it doesn't get written; he's against health care reform, and I doubt that there's anything I can say to convince him otherwise.

* While I was at work last night, my best friend called to tell me that she delivered her baby on Saturday through C-section. I tried getting a hold of her this afternoon, but haven't been able to. I'm hoping to visit her either tomorrow or Friday afternoon. I have a baby blanket to drop off for her.

* German class is still going well. This class isn't too challenging for me because it's a beginning class and I tend to pick up languages easily. I'm finding that learning German is much much much easier than learning Japanese. For starters, I don't have to learn a whole knew writing system. Also, it's related to English, and some of the words sound very similar. Now, what's probably going to end up kicking my butt is noun-adjective agreement. I'm not used to a language that has three genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter. Spanish only has two genders and Japanese doesn't have any.

* This website,, is entertaining. If you have any questions, ask away! Also, if you create an account, let me know so I can friend you there.

*Brrr...I'm fuh-fuh-freezing. So much for the spring-like weather we've been having...

* Somebody just sent me an email telling me how to check my email.
Well, okay then.

* Aww fuck it. *raises the thermostat*

* For those who know German...Wherein I attempt to use the language )

We're still role playing The Stand on Twitter. My character currently has close to 400 followers. *boggle*

So...I had an amusing idea pop in my head while I was doing laundry. Wouldn't it be funny if my character linked to "I Don't Know How to Love Him" from Jesus Christ Superstar to describe her feelings for the Antichrist character? With the exception of a couple of lyrics, it kind of fits. I might offend a bunch of people, but the reaction that garners might be kind of entertaining...

So...what do you think? Yes? No? Fail?

No wonder I like playing bad guys so much...I have a wicked sense of humor.

If everybody else jumped off a cliff, would you jump off a cliff too? And the answer is obviously yes.
