As I go through the week, I generally save different little things I want to mention in my LJ in a text file on my desktop. Oftentimes I find that I can just tack these on to the end of a real entry, but sometimes it all just stacks up until I have a zillion little things to say and none of it with any real weight worth posting in LJ with. This is when I make a potpourri post. My life has been uneventful lately, and with all that's been happening in the south that's probably a good thing, but I still get chagrined over making posts with no real content. Hence, this paragraph.

On to the crap.

Firstly, this Penny Arcade comic made me laugh until I hurt myself. Read all the way to the third item. That's the best.

Secondly, I want one of these VERY badly. They have speakers that you can feel the music with THROUGH the water and little fountains and water that changes color. We've already decided that if we can afford one in this tiny apartment we're in that we don't really need a couch and just to put it in the living room. Think of the hot tub parties, sitting in the living room watching anime!

I found this interesting, living in Los Angeles and all. Good informatin for anyone considering moving anywhere... From http://realestate.msn.com/Rentals/Article.aspx?cp-documentid=29087>1=6974

The alignment meme going around. I got the same as nfayre, which I think is pleasant.

70% Good, 54% Chaotic
Plane of Existence: Elysium, "Blessed Fields". Description: The plane of peace. Notable Inhabitants: Guardinals - noble immortal humanoids with bestial features.

Examples of Neutral-Goods (Ethically Neutral, Morally Good)

Mother Theresa
Sidhartha Gautama (the Buddha)
Bilbo & Frodo Baggins
Samwise Gamgee
Indiana Jones
The Dali Lama
Ben (O-Bi-Wan) Kenobi
Luke Skywalker
Harry Potter

Often goes along with the laws and desires of the group as being the easiest course of action, but ethical considerations clearly have top priority. May pursue quite abstract goals. Often aloof and difficult to understand.

Will keep their word to others of good alignment
Would not attack an unarmed foe
Will not use poison
Will help those in need
May work with others
Indifferent to higher authority
Indifferent to organizations

Neutral Good

A neutral good [person] will obey the law, or break it when he or she sees it will serve a greater good. He or she is not bound strongly to a social system or order. His or her need to help others and reduce their suffering may take precedence over all else. Neutral good [people] do good for goodness' sake, not because they are directed to by law or by whim.

This alignment desires good without bias for or against order.

Yay for Neutral Good!

I guess this means that while we may have differences of opinion about certain issues, we think the same about the really important things :)

I'll have to check out the other memes :)

I like non-content posts. Not everything has to have content :)

I'm glad you like non-content posts, 'cause I'm REALLY good at them.

Ok, let me just be clear here...

I like ALL of your posts!

That's cause you're silly

Of course I'm silly. We all are at times. Doesn't mean I'm not totally correct in that all of your posts, contenty or not, are cool.

Not everything is about content. Sometimes it's just about sharing something that you find interesting. How many of my posts are content, and how many are just stuff I posted because I was bored, or whatever I was posting amused me in some way?

Sometimes, something makes me laugh, and I figure we could all use a laugh, so I post it!

BTW, that hot tub looks spiffy. Wish I had a place of my own for one of those. One of my supervisors has one, and he and his wife love it.

That is one heck of a crossword puzzle...
Fritters: Gir Beating with text by inane and frittfritters on September 27th, 2005 11:25 pm (UTC)
The crossword puzzle is cute, but the snakes. Bwahahahahaaha... "fucking snakes."

And no one says you have to own a place to have the hot tub. Do what we're doing and put it where your couch used to be ^__________^
