I opted to do my 7 miles this morning instead of my P90X stretch routine (I'll do that tonight with a glass of pinot grigio, because that's how I roll) and now am confused about my day's plans. This is where you come in.

One of my votes was a joke. You should guess which one. ;-)

You're right, I shouldn't go to the garden center, but that was a great joke! ;)

Can I send my hostages to the garden center with you? I need to take a shower.

Oooh, that would be fun! Chain them up leg to leg for me - I tend to wander when I get there, and that way they can't get far if I'm lost in the hydrangeas...

I voted for the cleaning because I have to do it. Misery loves company. *G*

Had I taken hostages, they would be doing the cleaning.

I really REALLY need to do some cleaning. I'm going to do big things, be lazy for thirty minutes, do another big thing, be lazy another 30 minutes and see how far I get...

Fun! Poll! :D To add more to have been taken over by fandom interest that I will post in comments. The new Star Trek movie was so awesome that I am now all about the new ST fic! Especially Kirk/McCoy! It's very exciting!!! :D
stoney321
May. 20th, 2009 05:30 pm (UTC)
Oh, I love seeing all of the new interest in Star Trek! True story, in college back in 92, I took a scifi class that essentially was "Which ST captain is better, Picard, or Kirk?" (The Next Generation was just getting going) and the discussions would get quite heated.

And in case you wonder what I think, Kirk. Always. :D

I'm trying my hand at pixel art again, because I choke up whenever I try to face my thesis.

Want a pixelart icon? I can do stuff, except it can only be objects, no people or animals.
stoney321
May. 20th, 2009 06:30 pm (UTC)
I don't even know what pixelart IS! Go to town, whatever moves you!

Well, pixel art is art where you place one pixel at a time, both using and working against the "texture" and "grain" of a monitor. It can be something small and simple like my new icon or something epic like this: http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/29178.htm. But you get truly fantastic effects when you find a way to combine the colours: http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/42904.htm?sec=showcase.

maybe clean one thing per 1 hour of laziness?



this is my first full week off of school. I'm trying to get all the time-wasting laziness out this week so I can do some more productive things before my internship starts.
this week, my fandom brain:
LOST
other things of interest, flist
random New! Star Trek stuff


I have to finish this book (Japanese historical fantasy thing) today, though, before my family goes to the library. I'm on page 42. There are 433+ pages. I'll be getting off the internet sooner than usual

I have run errands and cleaned up all the mess outdoors, so now that it's getting hot I'll move inside.

Oy, good luck with your book reading!

Clean *something* today, and it'll improve your outlook tenfold. Or at least that was my experience today. \0/

PS I'm over 40 and still don't know what the heck you were talking about in that poll question. Maybe I have to be over 30 but under 40 to grab a clue??

I've wrapped up the laundry and swept, so those are off the list. The kids get home soon and I'll crack the whip and eat bon bons...

PS: The Thompson Twins "If You Were Here" lyrics! pop culture reference: the end of Sixteen Candles when Samantha and Jake are on the table with her birthday cake. :)

Thank you! Poor Sue - going out tonight will make you feel fancy and good. Wear fabulous lipstick and tousle your hair and be all that. :*

My soul currently belongs to Dollhouse. Damn you, Whedon, why must your characters be so morally gray and full of UST?!!
stoney321
May. 20th, 2009 07:57 pm (UTC)
I REALLY enjoyed Dollhouse. Slow to pick up speed, and then BAM, so fun. In that dark and twisted and wrong way. :)

My cat counts as a hostage, right?

You mean you as your cat's hostage? Absolutely. ;)

Your second question should have a "I'm way older than you and had my kids when that song came out, I think" option, so I lied in my answer.

I'm busily posting travel photos, doing post-vacation (ha, ha, ha) laundry and cleaning, and reestablishing cordial relations with my dogs. And trying to figure out how to get an extra week of weeds out of the perennial beds, when they were not even slightly tidy before.

Julia, also, I finally saw Star Trek last night and liked it
stoney321
May. 20th, 2009 07:59 pm (UTC)
Oh, to have a post-vacation anything... I need to check out for a solid three days, if not more, to recharge the batteries....

I really enjoyed the new Trek, even though I have a few teeny issues, being an old school Trekker that I am.

I just wanted the chance to say that I was under 30.

I, um, have barely commented since I friended you lo, those many months ago. I'm totally failing at this befriending-people-on-the-internet thing. Although I do read! And to be fair, I'm busy slowly losing my mind in my quest to find an apartment before I start grad school in the fall.

Enjoy the stretching and the pinot! Wine sounds awesome right now.

Oh, pshaw! you comment when you comment, and there's no time table for what's cool and what isn't with me. This is a relaxed space, pop in whenever, I never mind that stuff.

I'm halfway through the stretching (I'm being lazier than usual and breaking it up into two 45 min. segments, lol) and have a glass of Clayhouse Adobe Red in my mitts. Life is mighty fine tonight. :)

I am writing fic (SHOCK) which is basically LATTER DAYS 2: THE Y YEARS, just so I can make this man and this "man" kiss.

So basically I'm playing virtual Barbies. but with Ken dolls.

I hope you went to the garden center!

I want Adam Lambert/Zac Efron fic where they fight over hair products and then have sexy tiems. Ahahahahaha.

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.
