Where my nerds at?

[ETA] I have to record this: toasted bread, feta cheese, tomato slices, fresh basil leaves, cracked black pepper. This might be my lunch every single day for EVER. NOM NOM NOM. [/random]

Okay, I really really am hating Vista. Like, seething hatred. Like, it's my nemesis. The Captain "The hammer is my penis" Hammer to my Dr. *blink* Horrible. It's clearly designed for people who are really quite happy with AOL and basic, cartoony buttons. God, I miss NT.

I CANNOT get Azureus/Vuse to run on my laptop. I can get it to run on the home PC, but it won't let me get through the firewall on the laptop. Does anyone have any suggestions? The wiki had no help for multiple computers on a network, just the stuff I already know for the home PC. (And if I disable the ports on the home PC and try to open them on the laptop, it's a No Go.) BAH!

Positive things, because I don't like being negative:

  • Third day of Personal Trainer workout yesterday, and it started getting easy. (!!) Time to add extra sets!
  • Master Bootsie "McLovin" Collins of the Funkadelic (our newest cat) is lovely and is happy and content and has ventured out of the "holding tank" and is currently sitting on the table next to me in the living room. <3 he remains soft and snuggly.
  • Trying to get my dog to accept new toothpaste made me laugh so hard yesterday that I literally fell over, laughing. That lip curl/obsessive lick/"gahk!" noise and face on a dog = hilarious.
  • I bought actual girl products (I know how to use all the girly accoutrement, I just don't use them because I'm lazy) and I looooooove this new lotion: Vinotherapie by Caudalie. Smells delicious, and I feel like SILK.
  • I bought perfume for the first time in... god, over a decade? (See: lazy.) Michael Kors, and it smells like honeysuckle and I just want to press my wrist to my nose all day long. MMmmMMmm.


I finished watching Angel: Season 5 last night. I've not watched a single episode from that season since it originally aired - I couldn't stand the thought of it being over, you know? :( Got completely choked up all over again, and have that "it's over" hurt, which sucks. But dammit, that was a good freaking show. <3 Those final three minutes, that building sound of the oncoming horde? Chills. And now I know EXACTLY what I'm writing for the lynnevitational. I just have to sit down and start writing. Yeah. I'll get on that aaaaaaany minute....

I *STILL* have not been able to watch S5 of Angel! I can't even believe how long it's been :(

Mmmm, I hate Vista too - I don't have a problem using uTorrent though, through my firewall...try that? I like it better than Azureus/Vuse (although I admit I've only run that on my macbook)

It made me so nostalgic and sad, Swm. But, there was Connor on my screen, so that was pretty awesome. (I still have a hard time reading post-NFA fic, too.)

I could have paid an additional 150 bucks to have XP on my laptop, but good lord. I have to pay to go backwards? No, thanks.

And I do NOT like the new look of Vuse. Why do software designers have to completely change the look of software with a new build? Sleeker, more options, yes. But the whole thing looks completely new with a bunch of flashing stuff I don't want/need.

UTorrent. I've never used it. I'll check it out, thanks!

I have no nerdy computer wisdom to offer. I have never used Vista and am avoiding it like poop at a dog show.

The Captain "The hammer is my penis" Hammer to my Dr. *blink* Horrible.

LOL. I would say that Captain Hammer is in need of an anvil, except that he pretty much is one.

And now I know EXACTLY what I'm writing for the lynnevitational.

\o/

Jul. 17th, 2008 03:43 pm (UTC)
Heeee, he totally is an anvil, and I loooove it. (Did you see Act 2? In case you haven't, I'll just say this: <3!!!)
lynnenne
Jul. 17th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
I did! It wins the internets! Act I was pretty slow going for the first third and I nearly gave up - but I'm glad I stuck it out, because the rest was hilarious. And I really like the music! Joss writes good songs.
stoney321
Jul. 17th, 2008 04:07 pm (UTC)
I keep hearing that from people, but I liked the beginning - I liked the concept of him being a dork and blogging. But the SONGS! The hair blowing in the wind! HEEE. he does write good songs! Act 2 just got better, imo.
lynnenne
Jul. 17th, 2008 04:25 pm (UTC)
Act 2 is definitely better. And look! You already have an icon!

Sorry. I'm not technosavvy at all.

Yay to McLovin fitting in seamlessly, though, and just the mental picture of your dog's face had me laughing.

Michael Kors does something worthwhile? I loathe him on "Runway." Mmm, honeysuckle.

Waaah, "Angel." I'm in the midst of Season 3 and feeling all heart hurty for Wes.

Sally couldn't stop licking the toothpaste off her lips, and yet, she clearly hated it. And kept on licking. Part of me wants to thump her because she licks her butt. But mint she has a problem with? I see.

You don't like Kors? I love him - and really, I loooooove his clothing line. he really knows how to make chic clothing for womanly-shaped women. Which... puts him leagues ahead of most designers.

Oh WES!!! I laid down on the sofa and softly cried during all the Wes/Fred and Wes/Illyria scenes. MY POOR HEART!!!!
brunettepet
Jul. 17th, 2008 06:14 pm (UTC)
I only know Kors from Runway, and his moues of disgust and unhelpful comments make me cringe. Womanly bodies? I have me one of those. I should look at his line.

I still haven't rewatched Ats s5! Or BtVS s7. Just the sense that they'll be over forever will be stronger once I watch them, somehow. :(

I envy you knowing your fic path! I've got the story going, but I hit a snag, and it's more thinking-snag than writing-snag (as in, I haven't opened the document in some time *coughs*).
stoney321
Jul. 17th, 2008 03:47 pm (UTC)
See, that's exactly what's held me back all these years, too! If I don't watch them, then there's still more out there for me. :( (I still haven't watched BtVs:7. I don't know that I will, either. Or at least not the last ep. *sad face*)

Do you want to talk out your snag? Bounce ideas? Play some online Scrabble? *cheers you on*
entrenous88
Jul. 17th, 2008 03:50 pm (UTC)
Not today, for the talk about the snag. I'm on day two of periodic stuff, and I've been very cranky and defensive, so not the best time for talking about anything like that!

But this is cheering me up:

cat
more cat pictures

Look at their sweet leeetle chinses!

Also, hahahahaha, apparently my go-to for an emo!period icon features Connor...
stoney321
Jul. 17th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
Aww, I'm sorry you're feeling cranky. I hate that feeling, too. *scowls at things for you* I'll send some peanut butter/chocolate oatmeal cookies through the fwoomp tube.

KITNITS!!! I want to put my leeps to their bibs and feel their motorboats!!! OM NOM NOM THE KITNITS.

How the hell did I not know you have a new cat? I suck.

Yay on the training getting easier. You will be as in shape as you thought you were in no time ;P

When you come next can you make Truman let me brush his teethers? Thank you.
stoney321
Jul. 17th, 2008 04:10 pm (UTC)
I do! Click here to read about nd see pics of Master Bootsie "McLovin" Collins of the Funkadelic. :D

TRUMAN! Let Mommy brush your teefs! I think I need to ditch the good for her liver toothpaste and go get the meat flavored stuff to get her used to the sensation. She kept laying down and curling into a ball. "Noooooooo! No me gusta!!"

Oooh, you've posted fic recently! THAT'S what I've been forgetting! *ZOOOM*

Jul. 17th, 2008 04:32 pm (UTC)
That is precisely why I don't EVER even drive by a Humane Society. I would not be able to leave without another dog and the two I have are pain in the ass enough.

I have tried to brush Truman's teeth. He just turns his head and licks the brush. I cannot figure out how to hold his big block head still when he does not want it to be. The good news is that he will let me Dremel his nails down while Maddy would rather tear out my bowels with her long-ass hardwood floor destroying nails then let me anywhere near them. My alpha-ness sucks.
stoney321
Jul. 18th, 2008 01:47 pm (UTC)
The chick at the pet store told me to get Sally to lick the toothpaste first, so she'd be used to the flavor, then hold her face and work the toothbrush in.

I guess that woman is used to doing Pomeranians that enjoy that, or something. I've still not been successful at this.

MADDY! Next time I'm over, I'll lay on top of her while you go to town. (Don't act like she wouldn't mind bottoming on occasion. Hahaha.)

Now, see, I always heard "McLovin" as "MacLovin". I guess it all depends on whether you prefer the Irish or the Scottish interpretation. (Or look at the license and see what it says. Der.)

And, sigh, Angel. I think season 4 was the best and season 5 just about breaks your heart. I still haven't watched all of Buffy, but Angel I couldn't resist even though I hated watching the final episode, knowing it was the final episode.
stoney321
Jul. 18th, 2008 01:48 pm (UTC)
ANGEL! It only took me, what... four years to re-watch? *cough* And only 5 for Buffy...

I think that means we are die hard, heartbroken fans, myself.

I'm a slightly OC booklover. I have GBs of ebooks, at least half of which I own in deadtree format (and adding more all the time). And I like to share. :D

I hope you find a solution!

I couldn't stand the thought of it being over, you know? :(

Right there with you.

You're gonna write some Ats?

It's been a looooong time. Well, okay, I did write a Connor-Holtz in Quor'toth fic last summer for the Lynnevitational, but I've just not written ANY fanfic for a long time. Yeesh! I hope I can finish it...

Jul. 17th, 2008 07:28 pm (UTC)
Ah, Angel... yes, yes. And I do know that feeling very, very well. The TV-show Xena has been over for years, I have all the episodes here, but I have only watched the last season... twice. So yeah, I know the choked up feeling. :-P

Oddly, I love Vista. :-) It works perfectly for me. :-P I even got World of Warcraft to work on it, and that game is a bit wonky at times.

I don't like the simplicity of the user end on Vista, and all the "security measures" it imposes on me. I'm the only user on my laptop, so I hate having to set myself up as the Admin for
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<i<every</i>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I don't like the simplicity of the user end on Vista, and all the "security measures" it imposes on me. I'm the only user on my laptop, so I hate having to set myself up as the Admin for <i<every</i> program should I need to make modifications.

But I'm glad to hear you've been successful with it! I just prefer a more back-end friendly OS.

I have to start working out again. I am just so massively tired lately.

I haven't rewatched the last ep of season 5 either. Oh, my show.

stoney321
Jul. 18th, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
I took a two hour nap yesterday. I can't remember being THAT tired in a long time. I'm so proud of you, R! your heart and innards will thank you. Once they get over the initial agony of being used roughly. :D

I was like a baby, clutching a blanket to my chin and sniffling the whole of NFA. :(

I adore Michael Kors. I want to have a drink with him, get him to kindly point out that my dress sense is crap, but in a gentlemenly and amusing fashion. While possibly realing in terror. I think he'd possibly cry.
stoney321
Jul. 18th, 2008 01:54 pm (UTC)
I just looooove him! Even though he tends to get a bit too orange with the fake tanning. :D (Say - we can go by Parsons School of Design while we're in NYC, if you want!)

I want to go shopping with Tim Gunn and have him gently point me away from unflattering clothing and hold me by the shoulders and say softly, "I accept you for who you are. Now stop wearing that print."
dovil
Jul. 18th, 2008 09:56 pm (UTC)
Argh, I cocked it up - watched Project Runway last night and realized I meant Tim Gunn - but saying that I still think Michael Kors is fab, fake tan an all. :D

And yes, that would be excellent! It'll just be like on the tellie, except I'll be in it.

I'm sending healing vibes to you internet, and also unwanted annoying comments.

Just thinking about them in that alley makes me tear up. I don't want Angel to fight the dragon *cries* Also I miss Connor, I don't care what people say I liked Connor. *calms down*

On a smelly note, I wore Michael, by Michael Kors and I swear a woman followed me into my office building to tell me I smelled good. Trufax. So be careful. *lol*
stoney321
Jul. 18th, 2008 01:55 pm (UTC)
WAAAAAAAAH!! (My fic is going to address that dragon. And the giant ass troll stomping up in the background, yes ma'am!) CONNOR!!! I still believe that he'd show up, even though Angel told him not to. (Since when did Connor ever obey Angel?)

Mmmmm, we will be delicious smelling twins. And I'll pack a Tazer. :D
bitchygrrl
Jul. 18th, 2008 04:18 pm (UTC)
I believe Connor shows up too,because when it comes down to it, he's going have Angel's back. You know you are the only person I know that likes Connor. I heart you for that.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
