Dear Internet,

Stop messing with me and my friends! First the fabulous Chiara's journal gets all borked, then Paul feels my pain in a way that's especially ironic to read when I'm sitting in bed getting hungrier and hungrier while I'm trapped under my laptop, and finally hey, by the way, reloading LiveJournal only brings more bad news, because it looks like Everything2's broken now too. Sheesh.

Cut that out! And come up with a website that delivers freshly-cooked steelcut oats, preferably through a magical portal that opens up in my bedroom so I don't even have to get up for breakfast. Seriously. I still love you, but damn. And no, the irony of how I'm posting this online is not lost on me, oh no. And now I'm really getting up for breakfast, since that site I mentioned earlier is still a pipe dream and also I have to be at work in less than an hour.

http://www.supermanisadick.com cost me an hour of my life, but I spent most of that hour laughing maniacally. Enjoy!

I swear, I've been responsible today, too, or at least I've paid my rent (this includes writing not just a check and an envelope but a snarky note to our landlady about how our recycling doesn't get picked up anymore). Also I've checked Amtrak to see how late [livejournal.com profile] ouro's train is going to be. Which means it's time to sit on the bed with the cat (who lost his collar two days ago, the little punk) and tell you all about the funny-stupid web toy of the moment! )

So scandalous! [livejournal.com profile] versacedave, this is all your fault!

Okay, maybe I'll go do some more responsible stuff before I work at 2....

This is the best web quiz I've seen in a way long time. )

Update, 0:03 And in other news (in particular, news of yet another summer movie I don't have to see), the New York Times review of The Day After Tomorrow sums up the film's rating as follows:

"The Day After Tomorrow" is rated Pg-13. Millions of people die, but nobody swears, copulates, undresses or takes drugs."

The full article is here, but that little footnote was really the best part. And I should really go to bed.

Rumor has it that a certain itinerant philosopher is lurking on LiveJournal without creating an account, thus missing out on all the exciting stuff his friends and acquaintances are hiding in their filtered posts. To this I say, Neener, neener. Give in and sign up already, Mark. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated, and you know you need another internet addiction like I need to figure out whether that last was sarcastic or not.

...but one written from home, because we have internet here! At last! Also, today I got a fabulous new haircut, and tomorrow we're going to [livejournal.com profile] chocolatesmudge and [livejournal.com profile] nedthealpaca's housewarming party, even though we're going to be late since I have work from 7 till maybe 3, and also I have work the next day because life's like that. I figure since it's only one day I can do it super sleep-depped. Everything will be fine. Also, today Iggy tried to adopt a new kitty friend, and we couldn't find his people for awhile, but then it all worked out okay in the end. Similarly, I lost my ATM card for a bit, but it was saved for me the nice people at the Kiva (grocery, book store, and wine merchant's a few blocks from our house, which makes it amazing we shop anywhere else, and now more than ever because they are so awesome). Maybe there's more, but for now I'm going to bed.

...and because there's sweet, sweet free Internet in the lobby of the Phoenix Inn Suites in Wilsonville, where most of the [livejournal.com profile] olstad wedding guests hung out and Peter and I were able to crash last night, this is to let y'all know that Peter and [livejournal.com profile] pants_of_doom and I are heading into Portland soon, for breakfast and as much trouble as we can make before Penny has to catch a plane home around noonish. We tried to call friendly Stumptowners for hangy-outy goodness, but nobody picked up the phone (I know, I know, it's early by normal people weekend standards). Oh well. We'll have to see you next weekend for [livejournal.com profile] chocolatesmudge and [livejournal.com profile] nedthealpaca's housewarming party and Pirates of the Caribbean and suchforth. Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum, even though I didn't actually get to booze up as planned last night (weddings make me twitchy).

So I'm at the Eugene Public Library feeding my LiveJournal and Everything2 addictions, with varying degrees of success (Internet Explorer can suck it! I want my tabbed browsing, dangit!) I want very much for our DSL to start working now please. On a related note, if you've sent me email in the past five days, I haven't gotten it. Sorry. Them's the breaks.

Hrrrm, what else? Um, our housewarming party was a laidback, low-key, fun affair, with a dizzying Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle interlude in the middle for me, [livejournal.com profile] chocolatesmudge, [livejournal.com profile] acapnotic, and Peter's mom. It made my head hurt, especially Cameron Diaz. So... much... cognitive dissonance! I took notes. Film is text, baby! Ok, I'm shutting up now. I should probably go home and have pie with Peter and his mom before she leaves, but I'd been without Internet for way too long. I'm a dork.

But I'm not alone, oh no. There's plenty of discussion on the InterWeb of, by, and for people similarly afflicted, and it's curing me of my obsession quickly enough, mostly because hot diggety people can't spell or punctuate worth a damn! Ack!

So far I've read through entirely too much of IMDB 's message boards on the movie (this was because I read in an AlterNet article that Cornel West has a part in Reloaded, which I had to verify, and sonofagun he does!) and wow. It makes me feel incredibly literate, really it does. Sigh. Anyway, I'm just about done rotting my brain on that, although I'll probably have to give in and download me the Animatrix episodes I've missed. And then maybe I'll be able to do some dishes and get to the library and generally approximate having a life. Maybe.

Edited to add: I'm still sorting out the plot of Reloaded at this point, since I think at times I got too distracted by the shiny to actually catch what the hell was going on. Of course, "what the hell happened?" blurs into "what the hell did that mean?" in my brain entirely too easily. Sigh. One thing is clear, though: Hugo Weaving rocks so HARD! Mitzi the Malevolent --- I mean, Agent Smith --- was one of my favorite things about the first movie, and in Matrix Reloaded he just looks like he's having all the fun! Yay actors looking like they're having a good time! Yay! Ok, done now.

In non-Matrix-related news, I might have another student soon --- this time, high-school pre-calc stuff. Whee!

And finally, a big LiveJournal welcome to [livejournal.com profile] poppydos.

I so did not know what to have for lunch today, but popcorn turned out to be just right. Yay! I like making popcorn in a pan; it feels much more real than the microwave bags, even if those are a wonder of the modern age. Of course, we don't have a microwave, so that probably affects my opinion on the matter somewhat.

This is a really fun game. 20 Questions with a database that draws funny funny conclusions depending on the information you (and the other registered users) give it. Stuff like: "Tofu probably doesn't lift the spirits" and "Tofu cannot liquefy small furry animals". Whee! Fun fun! Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] qousqous for showing it to me.

Update, 4:02 PM: Do any of you know of a way to make "Don't auto-format" as a default setting? I keep having to go back and click the box after I update my journal, because I forget to do it the first time and it makes everything look all goofy.

4:13 PM:

Things I didn't know

A kitten cannot be ingested
You don't need batteries to use a kitten

20 Questions really is too fun.
