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.

Many thanks to [ profile] bovil for suggesting that I get into Phineas and Ferb. When I first heard of it, I assumed it would be like most of the other crap on the Disney channel: bland, completely sanitized, and/or too stupid for words.

It seems I've done the show a great injustice in that. I watched a few episodes that were showing in a marathon on the TVs at work, and it's brilliant, and while it is kid-safe, it has lots to appeal to adults, most of which little kids won't necessarily get. One episode included references to five sci-fi movies, going so far as to name the antagonist "Mitch" so that when one of the characters told him to "get away from her," it was also a movie reference. Or there's this episode, which includes a few fun jabs at Twilight.

I will never get caught up, but I plan to have lots of fun trying.

Dear District Manager,

You rotten son of a bitch. It was very nice of you to bring that very large tin of chocolate-covered cookies. They were excellent cookies, too, that's the worst part.

Dear Senior colleague,

You rotten, evil son of a bitch. It was very nice of you to bring that very large pack of brownie bites, that pack of madeleines, and enough dim sum to feed a small army. It was all excellent, too, that's the worst part.

Dear surplus body-fat residing in other people,

Please know that I do not judge you, nor anyone in whom you reside. I know that our current culture is kinda assholish about you, but rest assured that you will never make me respect anyone any less for your presence. Granted, there are people in whom you reside for whom I have so shortage of hostility (Rush Limbaugh comes to mind), but realize that you are not a factor in that hostility.

Dear bit of surplus body-fat residing in me,

Treasure every moment you have. When the holidays are over... I WILL FUCKING END YOU.

Hugs and kisses!

So, I haven't yet been initiated by a vampire coven. This means I'm still in retail, and I'm now getting exposed to the constant background radiation of bad Christmas music. My coping mechanism for this, aside from ranting and raving and bitching and moaning, is to filk said Christmas music. I've been doing this for a while, and have typed up many posts of badly-tortured carols (here on LJ, here on DW), so most of you won't exactly be surprised, but there are a few new faces here, so... you have been warned.

I was slow to get into Tumblr, partly because I enjoy discussion and Tumblr is a poor forum for it, but also because I had the impression that the SJ assholes had infested the place to a degree that they could only dream of on LJ or Dreamwidth. Still, there are a few I follow.

Mansplaining Paul Ryan -- a meme that takes the piss out of our favorite sociopath looking to become Vice President. My favorite ones are "Atlas scrubbed," "Doing dishes is women's work unless there's a camera crew involved," and "I volunteer at soup kitchens -- images available upon request."

Fuck Yeah Retail Robin -- anyone who's worked in retail has mad some of the complaints that get voiced here. Granted, some of them are from robins who are complete idiots (and I say this as a robin myself), but a lot of them are good. There are a number of similar ones like Hospitality Hamster (for hotel employees), Receptionist Rabbit, Cow-orker Complaints, and in the opposite direction, Customer Cockatoo. All fun, but it seems that Retail Robin is the only one that updates regularly.

Fuck Yeah Social Justice Sally -- quotes from alleged social justice fans who are far more interested in bullying people than they are in social justice. If the internet's various winterfoxes have made it so you cringe at the sight of the words "social justice," you'll have seen some of the quotes in this tumblr. If you care about social justice for real, you should still look, if only to be aware of the huge PR problem social justice is having right now.

Small Dick Lover (NSFW) -- my first response when I saw the images in this blog was pity. And yet... every man pictured here was very much okay with his picture being taken. Every man here is at peace with himself, and possesses his own body, to a degree that I have to envy -- especially since I should have a much easier time with that degree of self-possession and still can't manage it. There's a lesson I need to learn from this. I'm working on that. I don't read this blog regularly, but I'm glad that it exists.

Sex Is Not The Enemy (NSFW) -- I've posted this one before: a blog with pornographic shots in which all parties involved are clearly having a blast. All porn ought to be like this.

What Should We Call Opera -- some streams should never cross... for instance, funny animated gifs and opera references. Some divine lunatic crossed those streams anyway, and the result is magic. Some knowledge of opera is helpful, but often the jokes are explained, for instance, how Berlioz is god-awful-expensive to stage.

Depression Comix -- by the same guy who did Sexy Losers. If you suffer from depression, you may find this comic helpful... or triggering. Or both, sometimes at the same time. It's on my list because I occasionally get like this, and this comic helps me attach words to feelings I'm not always so good at explaining.

I'm no doubt missing out on many more -- for instance, I know of at least two friends of mine with tumblrs, and I don't remember what they are. You must shame me for my ignorance and post them in the comments!

I hate our satellite radio station.

And I really hate Rihanna.

So, it's that day. And on just about every channel on TV, we'll be seeing the media milk it for all it's worth. I have a few harsh things to say about that, and just in case you think I'm likely to offend you, I'll be hiding it behind a cut.

Rude observations about 9/11 here. )

If I had thought to ask for the day off, I'd be hiding out for the day. As it is, I'm going to work, and all the TVs will be on. Fuck our media, and fuck the vultures that run it. I'm putting on Cartoon Network or something when I get to work.
