OMG, Tunak Tunak Cosby!

I am literally ROFLMAO and crying.
kjpepper: (grown and sexy)
First, GUH.

*fap fap fap*

Second, nearly scared myself shitless as I had about a moment or two of thinking I had lost the Preciousssss. Believe me, there would have been full blown superdeformed rage if I hadn't located it.

Third, it is Sunday and that means several things. a) Breakfast and Avatar with [livejournal.com profile] captainlove, peppered (literally) with delicious homemade pasta/sauce (and enough taken home to make a couple of lunches this week) b) a break from the Lent restrictions. I'm kind of already paying for the food ones - after a week of eating more or less right, the digestive tract is all "EXCUSE ME WTF R U DOIN" about the coffee and sweets I've pounded today. Ugh. Yeah, will not be doing this next week, lol. Really the moral of the story is, the shit stuff is never as good as your addicted little mind makes it out to be, and you always ALWAYS regret it. With the exception of cadbury eggs. Those are still mana from heaven. And possibly NOS. But yeah, with the exception of [livejournal.com profile] captainlove's sauce, pretty much everything I ate today made me kinda ill. That and my hand kinda hurts ans I tripped on the porch earlier and scraped up my hand. gah.

Also I can really be okay with only checking Facebook once a week. At least until Easter. I'm kinda whatever about the Internet in general these days.

Fourth, lots of heavy thinking today... really it's been a heavy think week. While I'm glad to say that some of the smoke from basically my life collapsing in on itself is finally clearing.... I don't know where I was going with that. I recognize the next few weeks are going to quite frankly blow, but I'm weirdly okay about that now. So... my old life is ending, but I have some idea of what I want to do/accomplish in the next phase of it, how not to fuck it up in the same ways, and what sort of shit is toxic to me. I often complain that knowledge and strength are rather poor compensation for everything in one's world going fucko bazoo, but I do have to admit when you've rebuilt something else, they are good things to have. This week has been full of shakabuku-giving kicks to the head... most people usually hate those, but I often welcome them, even when they hurt. I don't know, I'm weird like that.

Fifth, reopening the call for help getting my shit into storage. Ideal is only open until 6:45 during the week, so trying to do anything after/during the workday might be a bit much to manage, but even if you can help me make one trip, it will be appreciated. Also, I WILL be taking my road test before I leave damn it cause I want my damn Catbus. Especially since [livejournal.com profile] captainlove promised he would look it over for me once I got it. Any help practicing teh driving would be fabulous.

Anyway, off to make a few lists, finish Pandemonium and get something productive done. And tweeze these splinters out of my hand. Ow.

ETA: oh yeah, eggs. Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

Presenting Brief Jerky. Yes, those are underpants. made out of beef jerky. And Bedazzled.

This by the way, is the ultra feminine version. There's one for guys too.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] twolumps_feed for warping my fragile little mind this morning.
kjpepper: (facepalm)
Gods, tonight, except for one bit, was just full of the argh and facepalm.
  • It should not have been that hard to find an application, shareware, trial or freeware, that outputs extruded text in .3ds. I'm just saying.

  • related to the first, tonight seems to be the night for online creative stuff. Finally updated the dragonsea homepage... that was a bittersweet process, let me tell you. *sigh* at some point soon, I need to tackle my own web site... arghfllf 2004 era code.

  • related to the second... I should never devote that much time to refreshing my server's visitor logs. Really I should stop checking "300 most recent visitors" entirely. No good has ever come of it.

  • in cheerier news, I got told a story over Skype this evening. :)

  • the disadvantage to people removing themselves from reading your LJ.... you get things happening like [livejournal.com profile] morlock bringing me a bottle of NOS as an attempt to be cheer me up. lolfail. Ah well *puts away for Sunday*

  • trying really REALLY hard not to be bitter about Watchmen. It really isn't working.

  • I have a super secret mission in the works... here's hoping I can pull it off. If I can, that'll be amazing. If I can't, ah well, one more disappointment to the pile.

Well. This post just flamed out into negative and fail. I think that's my cue to cut it short and go to bed.

So I'm trying to cut back on a lot of "noise" from the internet - killing people I don't really talk to off my pidgin lists (some of these names have been on here since college ffs... I mean, really, who actually uses ICQ anymore?) and while I don't really believe in friends list cleanups, I am considering rejiggering my filters a bit to increase my signal to noise ratio for the next little while... which is funny considering I know I generate a lot of LJ noise. But yeah... I realize that I'm not so much in the spoon department, and one of the things overwhelming me are the ones and zeros from Das Intertübz.

One thing I'm trying to do is decrease my twitter/facebook/livejournal redundancy. I've already killed all the people I don't actually know off my twitter list (well, except for Jhonen Vasquez and Jeph Jacques, but theirs are amusing), but since I know that I'm not the only one who uses twitter to update their facebook status, I'm thinking of also killing updates from those people that do and just replying to their stuff on facebook. Also amidst all of this I'm trying to update my address book with things like phone numbers, IM handles and addresses of various types. It's a lot of work, but I think it will contribute to a somewhat more organized me eventually.

Valley Folk... does anyone want to a) come over one or two nights next week, sit on my bed, and shoot the shit with me while I pack? I've kinda lost the will and the drive to do it on my own. b) risk life and limb and automobile while I get a little driving practice in? I'm still gunning for taking my driver test before I head to NY, and I'm still a little iffy on both three point turns, parallel parking, and left turns.

Ugh, you know it's bad when the main thing you have to do on your to-do list is "make lists" and you don't even want to do that. :P

Book and bedtime, methinks...

This has got to be the best web toy I've played with in a while.


It wouldn't let me save either of mine, but hey that's what the PRINT SCREEN key is for.

and the slightly nsfw one, tee hee hee )
kjpepper: (lol internet)
Well, if anyone's looking for me during The Outage, I'll be on various IMs, Facebook and Twitter, per usual. Also WTF, LJ, why did you stop emailling me comments??

I'd like to declare publicly my hatred of [livejournal.com profile] anangelssilence. 2:01? TWO OH ONE??? How in the name of all that's HOLY did you DO that???

See y'all on the flip.
kjpepper: (kthxbai)
I installed the package tracker gadget on my google desktop, lol. According to it, Sigg bottle has been delivered (and so it has! so pretty!), one of Aeris' new outfits should show up today, and the rest of the stuff is either in transit or stuck at the "we've received payment" notice, though I'm not terribly concerned about those, as I ordered a bunch of stuff from the same ebay seller and I'm pretty sure she combined the packages. so... eh, we'll see. But yeah. I'm totally a tracking number nerd watch me go.

One of my ankles looks normal this morning! Well it did when I got up, it's puffy again now. But progress is good. I've discovered that the real secret to getting the swelling in my legs down is sweating a lot, which I found out accidentally the last two nights when I fell asleep with the bed toaster on. The problem is, I'm still banned from or not up for doing things that'll make me sweat a lot, grr. Thinking of taking C's advice today and seeing if I can get in to see Holly sometime tomorrow, as the next suture down has started to pull now, and if I can, asking her about maybe starting some light regular exercise again. *snort* I find it funny that at the beginning of the year I was pretty scared of the elliptical and now I can't wait to get back on the damn thing. *chuckle*

Spent the morning retwisting my dreads. It's funny I grumble privately about how slow they're growing and then I look at pictures of myself from January and think, okay, no, they've actually grown quite a bit. Problem is I don't deal with my hair nearly as often so I've lost the muscles in my arms that are used to being held above my head for long periods of time. OW.

Gods. There is still a veritable MOUNTAIN of work to be done at work. *cries* I'm trying really hard to not to stress about it and to have faith that I'm doing the best I can with it, but GAH. It's really hard not to push myself under these circumstances, it really really is.

Speaking of stress and pushing myself, had an appointment with Chiquitita last night, and spent the session really just kinda bitching about the whole surgery experience. A couple of interesting things came out in the session... interestingly enough, after the first couple of days back, I haven't really been hyper-vigilant about my body. Gods. I remember after the PE for months I was jumping at every twinge, muscle spasm, headache and cramp. Now? Not so much. You would think this whole thing would increase the "oh god oh god I'm gonna die" response... but no. Which is probably good in the stress department, I suppose, but it's kind of interesting that this time around I seemed to bounce back mentally a lot faster than last. Hell, I've been sleeping with the lights off again lately. That's a big step.

I'm obsessed with Zydrate Anatomy. Like seriously, I know all the words now. Damn catchy number.

8:01. *sigh* Gotta go get dressed now. Drat.
kjpepper: (fabulous)
I just ordered a T-shirt that says "WHEN GOD GIVES YOU LEMONS" on the front and "YOU FIND A NEW GOD" on the back. I am pleased and amused.

It's from this, if you somehow have missed it.

kjpepper: (i want it now)
In my humble opinion, one of the greatest things about the internet as we know it today is online package tracking. I swear, whenever I get tracking numbers for orders I sit at either the USPS or UPS websites and refresh every hour or something. Because the knowledge that my Sigg bottle has just departed Mesquite, TX enriches my life how exactly?

Guess who?

The faces of DSC_0029.JPG and Picture 20.jpg combined together -

Playing with MorphThing usually makes me feel better. Or at least makes me want to play with a gene splicer.

Also if you cross me with Chewbacca, all things considered I make a pretty fine wookie.

saw this on PostSecret this morning:

Oh HELLS yes.

Fun weekend. Not quite over yet. Will post more about it later.
kjpepper: (yarr!)
Methinks I'm taking a fancy to Skype, now that me crew there has taken on some new recruits, Arr. Melikes that I can hear a voice much clearer than with a cell - ye get accustomed to a call having that special "Ahoy, I hail ye from the bilges" quality. And so, it's like unto a breath of fresh salt sea air to hear how ye voices are supposed to sound.

So, which of ye scurvy dogs are in possession of it?

Deja vu

kjpepper: (don't panic)
Yeah, just go back and read this entry.

Welcome to my week. And this time, alas, no cookies. Only screaming.

In other news, what are people's thoughts on Google Chrome? I haven't had a chance to play with it enough to form a concrete opinion, but I'll have to agree with [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat that the fact that it migrates all page histories and passwords from firefox is pretty schway.
kjpepper: (lol internet)
I figure if I tell you in advance they're rickrolls, y'all won't hate me.

blame masteradept for this one. Cut for SIZE. )

Rickroll aside, that is a very well done 'shop right there.

And this bit of brilliance/too much free time is making the rounds as well:

kjpepper: (PVTA)

This site rates your neighborhood by determining how walkable it is. Pretty much this is determined by seeing what type of amenities are within walking distance from your house.

I find it funny that Camp Amoeba has a better walkability score (92 - Walker's Paradise) than The House in Brooklyn (76), but they do say that they fail to take public transportation into account, which is probably the only reason why.

I'm amused to know that there are people on my flist that have a zero score.

ETA: LOL! The Buzz is playing "Detachable Penis!"

EATA: just to keep all memes in one post...

LogoThere are
or fewer people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

kjpepper: (watch me YUL!!!)
Since I have a moment or so to breathe, I thought it was time for a bullet list of happy things in my world.

  • 181.fm - the Buzz. I know I'm late to the party, but I'm loving the party now that I've arrived. It's like someone found the grungy alternative soul of Z100 during the early/mid-nineties when I listened to it non stop from 6am-midnight with breaks for school and subway tunnels and spit it into an internet radio station. It was one of the main things that kept me sane last night as I valiantly battled Morpheus while trying to finish my project.

  • Thunderstorms. We've been averaging about one every 36 hours for like a month, it's crazy.

  • Olympics. GUH, EPIC WIN for Beijing for that opening ceremony alone. I'm sure the British are all like "CRAP what are we gonna do to upstage THAT in 2012???" Yeah good luck with that, guys. The Chinese pretty much PWNED this one. Really they could have stopped at the end of that opening 2008 Fo drum number and it still would have pwned everything ever.

    Fail for Bob Costas and Matt Lauer though. There've been several [livejournal.com profile] ibarw posts about how eurocentrically skewed the coverage of the parade of nations was, and at some points it WAS pretty damn cringe inducing. If the host nation uses an ideographic writing system rather than an alphabetical one, it does not give you the right to call the ordering of the nations "nonsensical." And you really, really couldn't find anything more interesting and relevant to say about the Central African Republic other than it being in the center of Africa? *facepalm* They should offer a commentary-less SAP channel or something for these things. Also... I couldn't get through it as it was being broadcast because there were commercials every five minutes. And when you're watching a 4+ hour long program that gets intolerable wicked fast. Went far better a couple of days later when [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and I watched it again on DVR.

    On the positive side, I totally have Go USA!! crushes on Mike Phelps, Shawn Johnson and Nastia Lukin.

  • Lynx, Xaio Hu and Cougar, thank you for bringing the squees, lolz and music this week. I'm glad to have met you guys. Also thank you for making last night less ignominious.

  • The Perseids peak tonight, and it should be a fabulous show, provided the skies clear. I'll probably be up working anyway.... D:

  • LobsterLM. Heh heh. And that is NOT #8.


kjpepper: (i want it now)
  • It probably shouldn't please me as much as it does that I've finally hit the bottom on Lil Green Patch. As in I can now send every plant they have available to people. Ye gods. My lack of life. let me show you it. Well okay, it takes like five minutes after I check my email in the morning, but I still feel a little bit abashed by the fact that I'm able to dedicate myself to a goal as silly as this one and meanwhile actual stuff gets... neglected? I guess? I don't know.

  • "you know that I am called the Count... And that I really love to @#$&..." heh. That's been stuck in my head all day. [livejournal.com profile] bluewindkitsune had never seen/heard it before so of course we had to hunt it up and play it for him. And if you haven't seen it either, you should.

  • I HAVE to get back to the gym this week. I didn't go all last week due to busy/stressed/depressed. And I'm feeling the lack. Yikes. Back into training I go.

  • While my weekend was good for the obvious reasons (Blue's visit, and in related news, getting to watch him tie and photograph [livejournal.com profile] lostcircuit and [livejournal.com profile] sundart) there were other good parts as well... getting to cook dinner for people on Saturday night (mmm, farm chicken is fantastic stuff), and while doing so, having a long overdue conversation with [livejournal.com profile] anzovin, and getting to feel better now that the air between us is somewhat clearer. It's got me thinking about some hard, but necessary things... we'll see what sort of fruit that bears.

  • Trying to decide if I want to go see The Last Mistress at Pleasant Street tonight... It's supposedly a rather lushly explicit costume drama, and hey, I like French movies. We'll see what needs getting done tonight and if I can wiggle up some money for it. I kinda also want to see The Fall again....

  • This week, I think the goal is to mentally unpack all of the projects on my list and decide which ones to work on, which ones to put aside, which ones to abandon entirely. Likewise, I need to actually go through my physical stuff and do the same. It's not something I'm looking forward to because all things considered, I hate letting go of anything if at any point in time it carried a shred of importance to me. But I feel like lately I've been at critical capacity. There is so much I don't need anymore that I still carry with me for whatever reason, and I can feel it all weighing on me like execution by pressing... and as someone who prefers to travel lightly, in thought and in practice, this... doesn't agree with me. In reality I need to start cleaning shit out anyway just because we have a tag sale planned... so there is that. I don't know... There's a lot piled up in my head, and sorting through it's just gonna take time and dedication. The good news is that today it doesn't seem like such an insurmountable task. We'll see how I feel about it tomorrow.
