When I first saw posts on this floating around on my dash, I sort of thought it was being overblown and people were making a bigger deal about it than it really was. But...ummm, yeah, apparently not so much? I wonder if this will be the beginning of the end for Tumblr the way Strike-Through was the beginning of the end for LJ.

My hunny bunny got me a Keurig for our anniversary yesterday (20 years!). I am excite! It's so cool, and I am having way too much fun playing with it. I need a bigger coffee cup, though.

So, on the occasions when I actually have time to play games, I've been playing Guild Wars 2. My second character is a Sylvari thief, and when I went through one of the first storyline quests for her, I got a very awesome surprise...

cut for dialogue and a pictureCollapse )

Oh my GOD. I think this might honestly be the best fanvid I have ever seen. It's freaking AMAZING.

Ok, I need some assistance. Is there anyone on my flist that speaks fairly fluent French, and could give me a riddle in French (along with the answer, of course)? Or who would be willing to translate a riddle I already have into French?

My sister-in-law works for the Kaufman Co DA office, and Cynthia McLelland was a well-known customer of ours in my shop. I’m heartbroken over Cynthia’s death, and very, very frightened for my sister-in-law. And DEAR GOD the comments on these stories (the absolute worst being the ones on the Huffington Post article) just make me sick. These were real people with friends and families. The way people comment on these articles, you'd think the McLellands deserved to die horrific, terrifying deaths in their own home. I can tell you Cynthia did not in ANY WAY deserve what happened to her.

I should know by now that reading comments on news articles is a bad, bad idea, but man I sincerely lose all faith in humanity when I see not only tragedies like this, but people blaming victims and having such an utter lack of compassion and empathy for survivors.

From the transcripts of the Supreme Court arguments from yesterday...



The concern is that redefining marriage as a genderless institution will sever its abiding connection to its historic traditional procreative purposes, and it will refocus, refocus the purpose of marriage and the definition of marriage away from the raising of children and to the emotional needs and desires of adults, of adult couples

-Charles J. Cooper (pg. 23)


How the hell did he even say that with a straight face? If marriage is only about "the children OMG" then why are infertile couples allowed to marry? Why are post-menopausal women allowed to marry? Why are people who don't want children allowed to marry? Because marriage isn't about the children, dammit. It's about the two adults who are actually getting married. Seriously, how do you even make an argument like that before the Supreme Court and not feel like the biggest idiot on the face of the planet?

First impression of the second episode, “Wendigo” - not quite as creepy as the pilot episode. Still creepy, but not as bad. Interestingly, every time the wendigo was skulking around in the bushes, I kept thinking of raptors (and now I want to watch Jurassic Park again). We even had the pseudo-big game hunter along for the ride. If he’d popped out with a “clever girl” reference, I’d have laughed.

Cut for length, but no real spoilersCollapse )

Ok, so, after hearing some of the spoiler information that Jeff has given out in the last month or so, and thinking really hard about that comment Peter made in season one (which Lydia repeated in season two) of how "sometimes the people closest to you are the ones holding you back the most", I have come up with a theory. I'm putting it under a cut, for those who don't want to hear theories based on spoilers.

My Peter theoryCollapse )

So, my husband started watching Supernatural on Netflix, and managed to get through the entire first seven seasons in 36 days. And now he's anxious for me to watch the show so we can discuss it. So last night I decided to start. I...probably should have waited for a night when he was not at work.

Ok, first impressions after watching the first episodeCollapse )
