My showldr iz pastede 0n yAy!  
On the one hand, I'm not particularly into the entries that go like this....

"Then yesterday we took Van Owen instead of Victory (it's STILL under construction) to get to the swap meet (or should I say the SWAMPED meet, it was HORRIBLE yesterday! LOL!) because we wanted to get those green earrings I mentioned before, but they were out so we considered getting the blue ones but the blue ones are just a little TOO blue for the outfit I'm planning so we left and then the car was hard to find, Sarah had parked WAY in back instead of trying to get a good place, that BOTHERS ME!...."

Conversely, I'm on LJ to keep up with what's happening with my friends, so I get irritated with entries like this.

"Today sucked. Don't ask." <-----no comments allowed

...or when all people do is post quiz results, because then I STILL can't keep up with what my friends are doing.

*insert the page equivalent of a semicolon here*

So I suppose I should actually do what I personally like from people's postings and actually TELL people what's been up with my life, instead of just posting more quiz results, huh?? I will try to be brief, as well. Wish me luck.


We've been doing the gardening/construction at postrophe's parent's pretty regularaly lately, but last Saturday we left early to attend a smallish party at Karen Anderson's house (Michelle shotgunned green chartreuse and paid for it LOL!1). Postrophe actually got me into a bathing suit...

On the fourth, we did our traditional Dad's BBQ thing and was able to get home in time to see the illegal fireworks, which was pleasant. They nearly set a balcony on fire, which is amusing in retrospect.

After all that driving the day before my shoulder was KILLING me (still, from the accident), so we ditched out on helping ladypixel and kingu, sorry guys (I finished a necklace for you guys to sell, though). Driving makes it bitchy and we knew we had agreed to drive the next day to...

...helping Karen with her many many macintoshes. We solved pretty much every problem we had thrown at us (despite never working with OSX before...) and we got out in time to get my damned fuel filter replaced (thanks for the cash, Dad!)

Today we went to the chiropracter! YAY CHIROPRACTER! I've been wanting to go for WEEKS so in theory I can stop bitching about my shoulder to everyone, soon. He told me why the ibuprofin and naproxyn sodium weren't doing jack for me, as well, so less pain, too! W00t!

Gardening tomorrow. Yayz.


Was that concise enough? I can never tell.

Now for the crap.

1. Neat link. It will tell you what emotions are being used more and less and how much they're fluctuating on LJ....


Aww look, he's happy.

I thought I did pretty good on this one, I didn't score HIGH, but it was a HARD test!!

3. My country is doing well in Nationstates! In most things we're rated on, I'm in the bottom half of the 500 or so nations in Galt's Gulch (our area), but I'm #9 on happiest people! I think that's all that really counts, don't you??

So why did the Michelle thing get crossed out? Didn't happen? Or wish it did?

I hope my LJ isn't too obnoxious for these things.

Conversely, you are always welcome to call and ask, "Wassup!?"

Fritters: TT Robin Driven me Insane by digic_iconsfritters on July 9th, 2005 03:24 am (UTC)
No, you are not obnoxious in any particular direction. And it got crossed out because it's a bit too much like the TMI post. Not to mention it's a bit snarky.

FYI, I added a #3 since you commented, not that it's particularly noteworthy.

Let's just say that Michelle made an important discovery: the esophagus is a river that flows both ways.

No, that was my second favorite. Favorite was in the pool, when she came over and said "We're all adults, here... I think I'm going to take my top off".

Misty looked at me, we both shrugged, and I said something like "Knock yourself out. We're libertarians."

She blinked, then swam off, came back and said "You know, I've already got my top on, anyway.."

postrophe on July 9th, 2005 05:37 pm (UTC)
Don'cha just hate it when ya can't shock people? (Poor 'shelle...)

Or do you think she had an ulterior motive? (She Does like long hair on guys... )

...hey, you don't think she actually justGot The Hint, do you?


thudpucker: laughing man - by frittersthudpucker on July 9th, 2005 05:46 pm (UTC)

You know, in the words of Gilbert and Sullivan "there are the remains of a fine woman about her". She is intelligent, and has a good sense of humor, and is reasonable looking and could be better if she'd see a dermatologist. If she didn't feel the need to try to prove to people how much more important she is than anyone else around her - constantly - she could... oh, well. You know exactly what I mean. But she's a grownup, and hoes her own row.

Counsel joins on all statements. (And yeah, sometimes I look and just sorta sigh...)

Defined as: Hoe - to prostitute or solicit (street term). Row - uproar, dispute (brit slang).

Hey, you guys know you have no working phone right now? (Heading for my parents' place, hope to see you there...)

1.) I love how cynical and sarcastic and bitter you can be, because I know, deep down, there's a really happy person who's being covered in layers of slimy snark. It is GREAT. (Mostly because I am the same way. ¬_¬ SHH NO I AM NOT IN LOVE WITH MYSELF.

2.) For an American, you're pretty damned Canadian. GO YOU.

3.) This keyboard is sticky. .-. I'm having lots of trouble typing. That, and it is almost 3am. =_=

4.) I haven't said lately how much I love you, so guess what? YOU'RE AWESOME. ♥

5.) Best of luck with the cessation of hurt in you shoulder. I think I am having sympathy pains all the way from Canada. My arm has been killing me the past two days. ;.;

6.) I use way too many emoticons. XD

1, 4: Love ya too ^_^ I've been non-commentey lately, it means nothing....

2: Have you taken that quiz? It's pretty hard! Some of it is sports related and I don't even know much about sports HERE!

3: I'm using an external keyboard. I have no idea why I'm mentioning this.

5. Turns out Excedrin is a good thing. It kicks Ibuprofin and Aleve's asses all the way to your country and back.

6. So do I. ^_^ Especially this one ^_^ I've found myself using it every sentence before ^_^

Very consise.
Yeah, so the mood thingy was uber nifty and the quiz reults do not supirse me.
Lady Pixelladypixel on July 10th, 2005 07:26 am (UTC)
I'm fairly ditchable - but it doesn't hurt to find out that I'm being ditched. ;) (Seriously, I wasn't at all upset over it. To be honest, I spent Tuesday afternoon staring at a computer screen instead of really working anyhow, which I think I sorely needed to do.)
Fritters: Ed Stars by Frittersfritters on July 10th, 2005 07:30 am (UTC)
Well, we will be there this week to hopefully make up for it anyhow ^_^

Cool quiz! Problem is, things are different in every province... We don't talk the same, coast to coast... And then there's the whole time thing? When was the quiz made, cause things have changed recently! I didn't do much better than you, and I've lived here my whole life. I agree about the sports though... Not much of a sports fan. I knew they were all teams, but couldn't tell you what sports... I'm guessing baseball and football...

Hope the chiropractor helped. Sorry to hear that you're still in pain... Hope it goes away soon.

My day sort of goes like this...:
5am - alarm goes off. Get dressed (in the dark) set timer for 5:30am
5:30am - timer goes off. Roll out of bed, stumble to bathroom. Do misc stuff there.
5:40am - get lunch together. Put lunch, bag, purse, shoes by door. Set timer for 6am. Go back to bed...
6am - once again, roll out of bed. Put on shoes, out the door. If it's my turn to drive, hit Tim Hortons for hot chocolate and onion bagel (toasted with butter)
approx 6:50am - arrive at work.
5pm - leave work
5:45pm - arrive home. Either play games with my bro's (very recent) or take a nap.
8pm - shower
9pm - bed time. Usually read until 10pm
10pm - lights out. Time for sleep, even if the sun hasn't set.

And that is my very boring day. What ya think?!?! Needless to say, I don't post about my day unless something special happens... I lead a boring life...
Frittersfritters on July 11th, 2005 07:36 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I don't blame you for not posting stuff like that, I obviously don't either, although I've been slacking a bit on the noteworthy stuff lately. It's good to know that you didn't do too much better than me, I'd like to think I was a jr. Canadian in training ^_^
Nikki Fayrenfayre on July 11th, 2005 06:41 pm (UTC)
3) I made the Commonwealth of the Interpid. We're in the East Pacific. Have to see how this goes... :P
Nikki Fayre: Lilo & Stitch -  by spiffydazenfayre on July 11th, 2005 06:48 pm (UTC)
Correction, I moved to region Flat Universe Society... Creator=ME!

We need a webpage... Yeah, I'll get right on that, just have to learn how to code. Need HTML for Dummies I guess :P
Frittersfritters on July 11th, 2005 07:44 pm (UTC)
oooo, I need to add you to my dossier!!
