Was looking back through last year's entries, and found this:

I think the worst lie that I started believing after so many years of Japanese children's media is that friendship is something indestructible and eternal. People change, after all. We don't all grow up gorgeous and realize we're still great friends after years apart. Some of us turn into heroes, yes, but some of us become monsters. Others finally beat their way out of that damned hideous chrysalis they've been contained in since birth, and find out too late that everyone else thought it was beautiful.


Oh, damn it all, how did I ever manage to forget that again?

Help me decide on a new computer.

This is roughly what I'm looking for in terms of a laptop. Not particularly thrilled about the keyboard flexing that got mentioned; courtesy of our several-years-old keyboards at work, I type hard.

There's supposedly a decent netbook on the market by the same company, the 1015E - getting a small machine like that for note-taking and last-minute paper-writing would probably save me money, but then I'm left with the task of finding a desktop. Bunch of folks on tumblr have recommended Newegg's build-it-yourself kits, and I do have family in town who'd be willing to help with that... anyone have broad recommendations there?

This was the entry I set out to write today.

A lion cub demonstrates a good response to unwanted touches from an old Catholic man.

(And just in case the link doesn't work properly - it's photo number nine.)

Like that subplot in Fight Club, only without explosives.

Beautiful.

I.

My City has a radio station with a live DJ who actually puts Daft Punk out on the airwaves! And it's "One More Time", not any of their songs that normally get played around here.

Pity this is the radio with a fiddly dial and I can't read what station it actually is. Oh well.

The Hamilton County Board of Elections website is down.

More precisely, it's not just down, it's behaving like LJ in the middle of Russian election season.

So help me all the nine worlds, if the skeezy motherfuckers behind those robocalls claiming Sandy rescheduled the election have DDOS'd the Board of Elections, I WILL FIND THEM. AND I WILL VOMIT ON EVERYTHING THEY LOVE.

Can't find an embed because work filters don't like fun.

But.

"Red Alert" by Basement Jaxx.

Look it up, and if you're in FrankenSandy's path, stay safe.

As I'm already hearing people I like freak out that OMG THAT EARTHQUAKE CASE IN ITALY IS SETTING A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT -

Here is an actual scientist refuting that. Or, at least, agreeing with me and disagreeing with the ITALY IS SO BACKWARDS crowd, and providing facts to back our shared stance up.

Also there are appeals that have already started. The convictions may not even stand for long. (Seriously, though, they gave bad information when they knew better because they thought the public to be too stupid to handle the truth. B[ I agree with the court.)

I'm in a bitchy mood but at least I'm alive and I can write. Sort of, heh.
