Break egg into bowl.
Fish out larger bits of eggshell.
See about eight tiny little bits.
Can't be bothered.
Make eggs anyway.
Don't remember eggshell until I'm done.

"-but actually gave you one?"

Funny thing; I found two strange black socks when I got my clothes out of the dryer, even though I checked it beforehand.

Got invited to a meal at a local chinese buffet with my classmates by that one classmate who may be a lesbian, went, made a good accounting of myself.

Sat next to a mousy girl who I think might have a thing for me, chatted with her politely. She's cute, but I'm more interested in R-. I hope I didn't give her any ideas.

One of my classmates got a haircut over the break, and now he looks exactly like Rhett McLaughlin of Rhett and Neal. Except less Christian, shorter, and British, and more prone to making dirty jokes.

Also, seriously, £12.99 for a buffet? Plus drinks? It was nice, yes, but that's a quite bit even in British money.

In addition to the nightmarish skull, I've also found that Florence, in the poster, is about eight or nine heads high. I know she's tall, and I know she has legs out to next week, but I'm calling shenanigans.

Pardon me, I have to go locate my spine.

...was to reinstall the extension causing the conflict. I had simply disabled AB+ believing it was a problem with the extension itself, and was just about to post on the AB+ forum when I decided to try and see if I still had the problem without other Extensions on.

I mad.

I've also discovered that another extension is causing the memory leak that causes Firefox to make FLVs skip after about 400MB or so of memory. I managed to have about five different Youtube videos open without a single one skipping. Also, this extension is causing Firefox to refuse to relinquish its grip on memory even when it doesn't need it. I think it's Greasemonkey, I'm not sure. Time to Sherlock it up.

Seriously, dude, you can film from more than two feet away. And there's no law against showing the top of someone's head.

That aside, I think the movie benefits from not being in first person. Katniss Everdeen, in the book, is a young woman from the rear end of nowhere who nonetheless writes like an English professor. The movie does this revolutionary thing called "acting" whereby characters convey information and feelings without needing to explicitly state it. It also allows other characters more development; President Snow, for example, is much better developed in the film, where Katniss barely saw him in the first novel. Peeta and Cinna, as always, are both bro-tier. Someone put a lot of effort into this film-I've flipped through the behind the scenes book at ASDA-and it shows. It really is a very good film.

I bought some posters for the movie; Katniss and Rue. Katniss 'cause she's Katniss, and Rue because she reminds me of my niece. I haven't had any posters up since last year, and since I also bought a Florence and the Machine poster, I keep looking up from my computer and briefly thinking some lunatic who likes leggy redheads snuck into my room and pasted it up.

Hey, what's this poster doing here?

I still delete my history when I visit sites with swears in the name or URL, even when literally only two other people have ever used this computer and neither had admin access.

Today I tumblred a picture of a woman in a pretty dress that I found from her blog which she linked to from her post on a website collecting fashions.

I'm pretty sure I should just turn in my Y chromosome right now and save the Man Marshals the trouble of hunting me down.

So I taste my milk, notice it's slightly off.

Then I pour some of it out a few hours later, and cottage cheese comes out.

Except the expiration date is three days later.

On Saturday, I go to ASDA, buy a jacket, and forget to have it deactivated. I pause when the beepy thing goes off, and clear it up with the Customer Service desk--right next to the exit--show the nice lady my receipt, and be on my way.

Today I find a vlog from KatersOneSeven, who was nearly arrested over a mistake leaving JC Penny. At least, that's what I gleaned from the comments, since I took one look at her teary face in the video and went NOPE.avi.

Funny thing is, one of the top comments said their heart was broken, and "the UK" was with Kate. Really? All of it? Did you ask everyone?

Most of the actresses on that list have more comprehensive and sourced pages than some articles about actual science and math.

Today in church, the pastor made a point about how Jesus was kind of a rebel. He cited certain verses in Luke 4, which can be summarized thusly.

Jesus: Fellow Nazarenes, I know you want me to heal people. But I can't just heal everyone. Elisha didn't heal everyone. Eliseus didn't heal everyone either.
Synagogue: We're going to throw you off a cliff now.
Jesus: Nope.

And then Jesus escapes the angry mob and vanishes like a ninja. I'm not even joking. That is what the scripture says.

28 All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. 29 They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff. 30 But he walked right through the crowd and went on his way.  (NIV)
I just have this image of a DnD game where the GM asks Josh to make like 15 Evade rolls and he just gets a Natural 20 on every single one.

Alexis: And they were obstructing the police, but it was still a lawful protest.
Me: Nice of you to to admit they were breaking the law.
Alexis: N-no I didn't! They were peaceful, unarmed protestors! I didn't mean "obstruction" in the legal sense!
Me: You already said that they went there deliberately to protest. You said they were obstructing the police. The definition of obstruction in that state is willing and knowing obstruction of the police's duties. Unless you want to argue they were accidentally blocking the police's transport of prisoners.
Alexis: The police didn't give a lawful order!
Me: Doesn't matter whether the cops ordered them or not. The protestors specifically stated their intent to obstruct the officers unless their demands were met, and took actions, by your own admission, to keep the cops from doing their job. That is probable cause for an arrest.
Alexis: But it was police brutality!
Me: No, they used standard force for an arrest with a resisting perpetrator.
Alexis: But they were innocent, unarmed, legal protestors!
Me: If they broke the law, their protest was by definition, illegal. Not to mention threatening the cops, which is legally a riot.

It's like food poisoning, except it only occurs in people stupid enough to look at some sausages they know are probably expired and go "well, only ONE of them is green. The rest should be okay."
