Tension breaker, had to be done.

My reading list (some people call it a Keiser blade. No, they don't. They call it a Flist.) was getting out of control. SO MANY posts to read. I was missing some things I wanted to read, yadda yadda, badda boom. Not flocking things, not trying to hurt feelings, just cleaning up a little. Some folks I don't have similar interests with now, some folks aren't around much anymore, and so on.

But. This is MY reading list, and you can feel free to defriend (god, I hate that term) anytime you want without hurt feelings to adjust YOUR reading list. No harm no foul. If you want to stick around, comment, whatever, feel free! I just needed to get fit for the summer, you know?

SO. Anyone want to tell me a joke? Link something funny? I'd LOVE IT. :-D

Here: I'll get us started: The greatest job would be to write this stuff. I love/hate these girls so much.

Whatcha got?

[ETA more funny]: came across Tourette Syndrome Barbie. Disturbing and funny. Because I hate Barbie.

I've got nothing. I am SO BORED. And yet I have work to do. How does that happen? Let's see...yeah, nothing. Sorry. I support your friending/defriending stance.
Jul. 1st, 2005 09:48 am (UTC)
Yeah, your's is about what mine was. And some folks are PROLIFIC. And its about stuff that doesn't hit my buttons, no offense meant, just... Yeah.

BORED. SO. Uh huh. I've had some cute things running around my PC you might like: ihearthdarth for all of your twee Star Wars love. So. Great. I wrote a Troika ficlet um... two posts back? Clean and funny, if you're interested.

I'll do some digging. WANT. THE FUNNY today.

Frankfurter Spectacular!
I love ihearthdarth! So cute. And I checked out the weight watchers' cards link. Too too funny. And disgusting. But mostly funny. I have no funny. WAH.

I'm trying to stay reasonable about the size of my flist, but I must confess that when people go through a slack period my impulse is to friend new people without defriending old ones, and I fear that someday I will wake up to more than I can possibly read, just as a probabilistic occurence.

Or something.

I need to go finish staining the wood for the new picnic table top, and then, possibly, get ready to go look at real tall ships in Tacoma, and William Mossis wors at The Museum of Glass Art.

Julia, also plant something in the area where Sam just hoiked out a bunch of Geranium praetense

I think I've had moments where I meet someone, we both get excited quickly, add each other to our reading lists (I'm trying to do away with the term "friending") and then find out that we both didn't have as much in common as we thought. I *know* people come over for one thing, then find stuff like... Connie. Or Lubed. And reel back in horror. :-D No harm, no foul, seriously.

Oooh1 Planting! Glass art! Crafty-task! That sounds like a great day, to me. Huge prairie-land storm is rolling in today. Should make for an interesting day. I love summer thunderstorms.

I just went out to get started on the Appointed Tasks (first: pick the last gallon of Ispahan bloom to dry) and found that that large bearded stranger who sleeps in my son's room cut the G. Pratens and left a huge pile of it in a lawn chair instead of getting rid of it, so there is tidying to be done before the new campanula (C.punctata X trachelium "Sarastro") can go in. And there is more whacking back needed on Ispahan.

The only way to keep garden maintenance managable is to stay in the house and ignore it all, I swear.

Julia, who also fertilized "President Herbert Hoover," which sounds downright perverse

Not funny but life-enhancing: http://www.tallshipstacoma.com/

Julia, and Morris. William Morris. At the Museum of Glass, and also Ginny Ruffner. But only the permanent Chihuly stuff (The Glass Bridge)
Jul. 1st, 2005 09:36 am (UTC)
I have no funny links... except the Monty Python cheese shop skit I found written out online somewhere the other day. That had me laughing for FAR too long.

I loved the Go Fug Yourself link, though... I kept forcing Gabe (the BF) to watch Chaotic because I told him it was as close to a high school reunion of mine that he was ever going to get. I'm sure I graduated with at least a dozen Brit/Kev clones... Oh, the trashy was FUN (to watch, nearly 10 years later)!!
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:11 am (UTC)
Link me to your skit!! That stuff pleases me greatly. I want to be the girls of Go Fug Yourself. How do you get jobs like that??

Need. Funny. Links. I'm off to browse...
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:22 am (UTC)
Cheese shop skit is here... oh how I miss BBC America. The main page for their skit transcripts is here.

I wish I knew how to get a job on Go Fug... that would have to be just the best job ever. Mocking for a living? Awesomeness.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:02 am (UTC)
omg stoney321 make the bad national news go away.

Jul. 1st, 2005 10:12 am (UTC)
I KNOW!!! *mourns Sandra Day O'Connor*

I'm afeard to see who Bushie wants in her stead. CRAP.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:14 am (UTC)

I can't heeeeear yoooou.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:15 am (UTC)
crap is right. I saw a list that had Ashcroft on it. I still haven't recovered.

A fitting day to watch a movie about the world ending is what this is.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:14 am (UTC)
I just posted a snippet from last night's dinner table conversation at my LJ. But maybe it's not that funny and my family is just incredibly weird.

Have you got your tinfoil hat on?

Also, did you make your pony icon? Because I need to know how to make one like that, except different. (Here's a bison, there's a bison, and another baby bison, sleepy bison, herd of bison, bison, geyser, ELK!)
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:22 am (UTC)
HEEE!! I was JUST READING your post with your funny kids (nothing makes me happier than a good joke from a kidlet, man) when this comment hit my inbox. I can't wait for my kids to get a bit older and crack the jokes. My boy is getting funny, but the girls are still too Wee.


And I *did* make the pony icon by cropping pics, making a border, cropping it to give me the blank space - I'm super lame and don't know all the tricks - then used my Animation Studio to line them up and voila! (If you know the pics you want, you can email them to me and I'll set you up. Just if you want. morrisona [at] sbcglobal [dot] net.)
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:27 am (UTC)
I may just do that...I'm still going through the pics, but the day we were driving through the park and seeing lots of bison, my daughter was singing the llama song, and well...my brain went weird on me. You know how it is. :-)
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:30 am (UTC)
Weird brain? Yeah, I have a passing familiarity with that. HA!!

(The tin-foil hat song made me SO HAPPY.)
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:34 am (UTC)
Oh, you also need to see the Viking Kittens. Because they ROCK!
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:52 am (UTC)
HA HA!! I love No Hands, the kitty.

I need to find the website that has the famous Star Wars pic with superimposed actors in Leia, Luke, and Han's stead. It's where I was inspired to make this:

Jumping in here to say, thanks for that link! The kids and I enjoyed that so much. How do you find all these little treasures?

Jul. 1st, 2005 10:25 am (UTC)
Here's two that tend to make me happy:
My fave today is, ummm....this one, I think.
And there's this. http://www.rathergood.com
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:34 am (UTC)
And you are the queen of finding the fun links (stompy cat!) so I'm off to laugh. WHEEEE! Check out the "tin foil hat" link Szandara had uptop. AWESOME.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:52 am (UTC)
That was good.
And Yay! Stompycat.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:43 am (UTC)
HA HA HA!!! Candyboots. (Is that really you? It is, isn't it?)

This had me CRYING I was laughing so hard:
Marcy's "Enchiladas"
We don't know who "Marcy" is, only that she thinks "enchiladas" is wacky Mexican talk for "shit on a shingle."

And: Mackerelease yourself. Embrace mackereality.

You win.
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:55 am (UTC)
Hee! Glad you likeded eet!

Stompycat look all 'angry'. But he's not. He looove to march!

And I looove my Stompy Cat! Thanks for making heem!
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:27 am (UTC)
I'm trying to plan some (CHEAP) redecorating...just got back from Loew's and am quite grouchy. Go FUG makes me laugh! Sandra Day O'Connor makes me cry. The thought of Ashcroft? Makes me crazy.

Flists? I know the feeling, there are a few people I'm going to cut if they don't learn how to use an ffing LJ cut. Or, they could learn to write concisely, but hey, I'm being realistic here.

off to plant some new plants. xox
Jul. 1st, 2005 10:33 am (UTC)
PLANTS! Oh, you just know the way to tease a girl, don't you? Go Fug Yourself is one of the greatest things ever, next to H Dog of Accountz Raceeevaboo on The Onion. (Herbert Kornfield)

Gonna find new links for funny to help us all through the day... (Psst: wrote some new stuff. RPS, and a Jonathan/Andrew ficlet.)

CHiPS!!! Poncherelli. I LOVED that show.


I'm working on Jazz Hands! It's going to take a bit. I gotta edjicate mahself on how to do the animated layer.
Jul. 1st, 2005 11:29 am (UTC)
This picture made me laugh hysterically, but that's because I'm very, very sexually frustrated and also mentally 12.

Jul. 1st, 2005 12:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, Fre, it's nothing personal at ALL. You always come off like a lovely person. I am just not reading much Spuffy (or come to think of it, not a lot of Spike fic of any kind) lately, and I know the RPS stuff isn't your bag. And then there's the old but rekindled love of Star Wars taking over my brain...

SW is the main place I've been hanging, and those folks are PROLIFIC, so I'm just changing my READING LIST. I'm not crossing out friends, potential friends, or making and judgement calls of any kind. Just making adjustments to my READING LIST.

Again, you have always been a lovely person, write beautifully, and I'm sure I'll click over to your journal on occassion to see what's going on with you and the mini-Fers!

GAH!! Poor, poor Nathan! I'd almost be tempted to swaddle him up so your hands would be free to hold his head still and keep him from hurting himself! *pets you and hugs Nathan*

Can you turn the tables and tell him it's magic? That the drops (you could say pretend if that makes you feel better) will give him the power to see the future or something and make it a game? How frustrating and stressful, Anne!!

I'll see if I can't find more laughs...

Parade! We plan on grilling, swimming, watching movies, getting sunburnt, grilling some more, laying around... Mr. S has been working long and hard on his current project, and the thought of four days off has made him giddy and silly. So the real answer? WHATEVER HE WANTS. :-D

What a fun day you had! We live on the border of three towns, so we can see three sets of fireworks from our front yard, and they are having them every night this weekend. Woot! No crowds. Lovely.

And I am super stressed about Nathan! Poor little fella. When I got my first pair of contacts (11?) it was a hard thing to get them in my eye: I kept blinking. The doc had me look hard to one side, then he used one finger to pull my eyelid down and pop it on. Maybe you could distract Nathan with a toy or something far in his peripheral vision to get his blink reflex off kilter?

Otherwise, what do you do? *shrugs* He'll eventually get better and be okay. *hugs you*
Jul. 1st, 2005 12:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the links. Damn, Britney needs to get some new clothes. We all don't want to see that belly, thank you so very much. Those girls who put up that website are freakin' hilarious.

Love ya, and hope you have a fantastic weekend. Fireworks for everyone!
Jul. 2nd, 2005 05:21 am (UTC)
Did you read ALL of the Britney entries? And the Fuggerline ones? Those girls have the best job in the world.

Have an AWESOME weekend!!
Jul. 1st, 2005 12:55 pm (UTC)
Not exactly funny but...

I'm typing up some directions right now for a farm tour. The directions take care to note every time you cross a county line. And also note which drives are paved and which are dirt. And at one point they instruct to drive in the direction of the shade.

Jul. 2nd, 2005 05:24 am (UTC)
Yeah, Britney totally goes out in public like that and-

Hey! Bitch! you better pray to WHOEVER you call God (goddamn filthy terrorist heathen) and THANK them for not getting cut. WITH MY KNIFE, Ese! (Don't you know I'm loco?)

Beth, WHY did you not put a link to The Corporation Corporation here? FREE ADVERTISING amongst the peoplelins.

OMG, I wrote a silly word. I've gotta call Julia Roberts and tell her. She'll crack up! Maybe she'll let me hold the babies...
Jul. 1st, 2005 01:46 pm (UTC)
Aaaaannnnd, to be annoying, or avoid the several different sets of things I should be doing, otherwise, The Random Excuse Generator.

Julia, really expending a lot of energy to avoid useful activity, you should be proud of me
Jul. 2nd, 2005 05:27 am (UTC)
HA HA HA!! That's great! I just got that I couldn't go to work today because Charlton Heston tried to destroy me. I love it!

I could not stop giggling. That is HILARIOUS!!!
Wheee. Markin' that one down.

Still giggling...

(here's something I remembered: this is a journal! Which makes it your personal thinky space! So, if something interests you one day, and then another thing the next... why can't you give in? You CAN! And it's okay! And I'm trying to push the movement of calling it a READING list, and not a FRIENDS list to make it easier to read what I'm interested in today. Just because someone doesn't automatically comes up everytime you load that one page... Nothing keeping you from typing in THEIR journal and popping in, right? Is it weird that I do that?)

I give you hugs and pony cake!

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.

Time Wot It Is
