Thursday randoms [May. 21st, 2009|04:10 pm]
terribleturnip
We're getting out early tomorrow, closing the office at 2pm. Plus, Faire is closed on Monday. I am giddy with free time. GIDDY. I should put it to good use and make the next several weeks that much less stressful. Will I? Hell, no. Already, I have chosen to go out to happy hour(s) with co-workers tomorrow afternoon, instead of going home to get ready for the weekend and pack like a normal sane person.



I will make one concession to make up for wasting an afternoon in Margaritaville -- and that will be to drink one soda to one beer (which means I'll spend as much time running to the ladies room as hogging a bar stool), thereby ensuring that I have enough brain cells and hydration to make it through the weekend.

I must be running low on some vital nutrient. I am having food cravings that are whiplashlike in intensity. I coveted the banana on the counter this morning, even though it's the Captain's. He likes 'em ripe, I like them with tinges of green, so sometimes I have to struggle to let any of them get to his preference. This morning, I wanted that banana the way a Catholic priest wants...no. That is wrong and horrible. I refuse to type it. Too cheap, too easy. Like shooting choir boys in a barrel.

I woke up with a craving for my chickpea and beet salad -- diced steamed/roasted beets, chickpeas, feta crumbles, chopped chives with balsamic vinaigrette. Not your typical wake up craving...but I'm not much of a breakfast person anyway. And just now, I scored a pickle -- leftovers from a luncheon meeting got put out and I grabbed a half-sour. Normally, you could not MAKE me stoop so low as to go for the leftovers...usually not that good to start out with and then there's that whole been sitting out at room temperature thing. But I saw that pickle and I was a woman possessed. I would have broken someone's arm if they got in my way. I NEEDED that pickle.

Oh, well, eventually I'll ingest whatever trace thingy my body is looking for and I'll be back to normal potato chip and chocolate cravings.

The wingnuts are outraged that Google featured the Ida fossil in its logo. Sigh. Pick one: Evolution could be God's plan, so belief in evolution does not make you an atheist. Or, if fossils are put there by God to fool us or just make the dirt pretty, then it's God's handiwork that Google put in their logo, so shut the hell up.

That's not very eloquent, but I'm testy about it, short on time and needed to pop that boil before it festered. (ick) Yo, normal, sane Christians. Can't you stage some kind of fake rapture, some fake end of times and suck all of these wingnuts up in some kind of ersatz Celestial vaccum and deposit them...store them...hand them over to the aliens...I dunno, you'll think of something. Honestly, I'm tired of having to keep reminding myself that faith does NOT equal crazy.

Someone, not knowing my personal beliefs, said to me "I just feel so sorry for people who don't have God in their life." My Inner Miss Manners fair quivered with indignation. But I stomped her down and just said "Oh, don't bother, we're fine" and left before it got ugly.

Good heavens, it makes me want to go out drinking, use (unconsecrated) wafers as hors d'ouevres, wear a blasphemous costume, have sex with women and put pictures of animals in my family photo album.

You know, a typical weekend.

It's easier when you do it through the bung hole in the side.

We had a great idea along those lines, but (a) I don't have a big enough Shop-Vac and (b) you guys are closing Gitmo.

But going after Google is just equal time -- I mean they've been bashing Wikipedia for promoting Satanism and witchcraft. Because it sounds like, you know, Wicca-pedia. As usual, not making it up.
