Bugs - stop steaming up my tail!

Shallow Update

I guess I've been quiet lately. My last entry was in February. Well, not so quiet, really. I've been commenting on other people's LJ's. Flist activity has included real cosplayers, play cosplayers, knitting, a gal with a diet that curls my hair, Horatio Hornblower, fanfic, number memes I somehow meant to but never participated in, home pictures, pictures of Australia, cute animal pictures and so forth.

I have been paying attention. And that's ignoring all the antm stuff that's popped up with the new cycle.

So, what's up with moi?

Me no likey springing forward. I detest losing an hour of sleep. I made sure to get to sleep at a decent hour last night and ate breakfast this morning. I'm generally not a breakfast eater, but I figured I could use all the help I could get.

I was doing pretty good at 6am (a.k.a. at 5am as of a couple of days ago). At 10am, my head said, "Girl, you woke up too damned early. Can it plz be nap tiem nao?" Evidently, my brain has been reading too many cat macros. Cats can't spell worth a DAMN. Honest. Just ask Hank. ;-D

Anyway, ibuprofen is helping 'cause sleepy was turning into achy. It's lunch time now, but I'm not all that interested in the leftovers I brought. However, I might be in the mood for the Girl Scout cookies I have tucked away later this afternoon. Heh.

Okay, that's long enough for now. I'll talk about other stuff later. I wanna do another voice post soon. They are fun.
Path that rocks

Made of Win, Part Deux

So, on ONTD, there's a thread about the Buffy comic series, the Season 8 of BtVS. The post has art of most of the characters--Buffy, a rakish looking Xander, Willow and Dawn. Lots of typical ONTD comments follow, more on the positive side than not. But somebody always has to post that they never watched a show and "just doesn't get it". Oookay, attention whore. :-P

Then one poster asks (and I include his/her icon for its appropriateness)...

ev1lkitkat : Why is Xander wearing an eyepatch?

Many give this response:

ohshiny : he got his eye poked out at the end of buffy.

But a clever poster had another, much more Xanderish answer...

isildae : Because he's taken a vow of piracy!

isildae, I don't know you, but somewhere inside I kinda love ya.
