This is my front page. If you want me to add you, drop me a line here. Or, add me. Either way, I'll check you out. You can also drop me a line here if, for instance, you don't have my email address. All comments here are screened.

This post also includes every tag I have -- this is because my current LJ style doesn't include a tag index. (At least half of my participation on LJ is on my phone. I chose this style because, as bare-bones as it is, it loads quickly and it's still readable on a small screen.)

I'd tell you more about myself, but that's what my profile -- and the rest of my LJ -- is for.

Spending an hour reading about all the things the SCP Foundation is protecting us from, right before going to bed, is not a good idea. Spending an hour reading up on Keter-class objects in particular, again right before going to bed, is really not a good idea. I'm not saying there's nothing worth reading there -- on the contrary, it's great creepy fun and I devoured a lot of it -- but timing is important.

(In particular, SCP-231 (warning: rape, pedophilia) is a disturbing read.)

It's good to know that I'm not the only one with bizarre dreams. Well, I already knew that -- a few of you write your dreams out, but let's be fair, Neil Patrick Harris has resources we all lack.



Also, I'm going to assume that most of you have, by now, seen Dumb Ways to Die. But hey, you may not have seen this version, which you should watch because ponies make everything better.

Dear subconscious,

one: going into a store to buy condoms is, I suppose, a nice prelude to a dream. As the entirety of the dream, not so much. Even if the grocery store has an entire aisle devoted to condoms.

Two: condoms with the logo for Tide (a laundry detergent) printed on the wrapper? Really? I suppose that kinda makes sense -- using condoms can help keep your dick clean. Apple condoms are a bit more ridiculous -- I'm sure they'd be very good, but I'm also sure they'd cost twice as much, and about a third of men who use them would from that moment forward think they're better than everyone else for using them. Sony condoms would be low-quality, and if you tried to use them with any lube that wasn't also made by Sony, they'd fall apart... and yet, they'd have no end of rabid fanboys.

Three: thank you for your attention to detail, and for realizing that vanity-sizing happens in condom manufacturing. For instance, in the waking world, Nuvo makes an XXL that doesn't deserve an L, let alone the two Xs in front of it. In the dreaming world, for instance, I was amused that Apple minis and Hummer horse-cocks were the same size. On the other hand, McDonald's Big Macs and Apple Big Macs were very different. The ones in vintage packaging, labeled "Small" in Japanese, were amusing, too -- even if the joke about Japan mass-producing extra-large condoms during WWII and exporting them to China in boxes labeled "Small" is likely older than I am. The clerk handing me a ruler in a sterile wrapper, and then letting me punch my dimensions into a computer so that it could spit out recommendations, was also a nice touch.

Four: I hope that all these brand names just crept into my dreams because I deal with technology all the time (and because I have such a knee-jerk negative response to Hummer). If some marketing asshole finally discovered how to do oneiric product placement, I'm afraid I may have to hunt him down and murder him in his sleep.

Sincerely,
