My thoughts exactly

"I only drink Champagne when I'm happy, and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."

Movie LOLs

Idiocracy is a severely underrated movie. Okay, yeah, it's childish and somewhat poorly executed, but the ideas behind it are sheer genius. I can honestly say it's one of my favorite bad movies. And often, I feel like I'm living it...

The scene below is one of my favorites of any movie, ever. If you want me to bust out in an embarrassing snort of laughter, all you have to do is whisper "electrolytes" to me. I swear.

If at first you don't succeed...

One fails forward toward success. ~Charles F. Kettering

Inspirational. And also a great source of LOLs!

Check out the Epic Fail pictures at FAIL Blog, brought to you by the same people as I Can Has Cheezburger and I Has a Hotdog.

Why a blog about failure? Because, let's face it, failure is freaking funny. As long as it's not yours, of course. Then it's tragic...

LOL Cats

This is vaguely work-related for me:

OSHA Demands It

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

OMG! I could really use an LOL right now...

Came home yesterday to find that someone had broken into my house. Luckily, the person or persons responsible were long gone. Husband, cat and I are all okay. I just want to say we appreciate the local police department's professionalism and care in this whole mess. We're working on the clean-up and inventory stage now, but could use a diversion.

For my amusement:

I passed 50,000 words today! I conquered NaNoWriMo!

I did it!

Okay, so, the novel is not quite done yet. I'm figuring I have another 15,000 to 20,000 words to go to wrap it up. Then comes the editing. But that's what December is for.

Simon's Cat

This is so totally my cat at feeding time, only I'm awake, and she hasn't figured out how to wield a bat (or similarly shaped object). Yet.

Will it ever end?

No. Star Trek fever will go on forever. Or at least until I stop remembering funny things I want to share.

More vintage Trek goodness today. This is the blooper reel from Star Trek IV, The Voyage Home, circa 1986. The film was directed by Leonard Nimoy.

Live Long and Prosper.

Trek Countdown - 1 More Day To STXI

Ooh, we're almost there. Are you excited? Are you really excited?

Today's video features a little something special: two Spocks. Not one, but two. (squeeeee!) And if that wasn't enough, you get an extra special treat - a Star Trek acting lesson from Leonard Nimoy himself. Priceless!

Trek Countdown - 7 More Days To STXI

This is so Not Safe For Work!

One more week!

One more week until the DVD release of Star Trek XI! (well, in the US, anyway. i've been tormented by my overseas friends on my geek forums who have had their copies for a couple of weeks now. thanks a lot, paramount!) The big day is November 17. You can pre-order your copy at Amazon right now, if you want...

(I'm so happy I could squee.)


In honor of the blessed event, I will be posting something vaguely Trek related every day. These are items that warm the cockles of my nerdy heart. I hope they do the same for you.

PSA - the Not Safe For Work tag

We're all adults here. Or if we aren't, there's an adult watching over our shoulder, isn't there?

I'm an adult. I love the childish stuff, but I also love the childish stuff with an adult theme. Sometimes those things may get posted here.

No, I'm not talking about porn. I mean, really...

Stuff like swearing. Raunchy language. People yelling, "FUCK!!!!" Videos, mainly. Yes, I am now officially addicted to the You Tube. Love the You Tube. Gotta have the You Tube!

I will warn you if I post something that is Not Safe For Work. It will be tagged. And not with one of those cutesy little "nsfw" tags that leaves you scratching your head, wondering what that acronym means, and then you remember, just after someone on your computer screen yells in a loud voice, "FUCK!!!!"

No, it will say quite plainly, in the tags, Not Safe For Work. But you are an adult (or are being supervised by one), and it is your responsibility to look for it.

Enjoy the show.
