kids with swords

And I blame you.

You people are simply not being entertaining, this morning. (Three posts in two hours? What the hell is that? What are you people doing? Working?) And now I've got eight more minutes and no LJ to read. *pouts*

Seriously, I'll shut up now. Somebody rec me something clever. Any fandom. Something Aaron Sorkin would be best, though... I'm in that sort of mood. A snarky-conversation-camera-pan-through-hallways sort of mood.


EDIT: Speaking of Sorkin, did I tell you about the part where my parents missed the Studio 60 premiere, so my dad called me at work and moaned piteously, I downloaded it, and they drove over at eight o'clock at night so that they could take it home and watch it?

And then there's the part where I have pictures of my uncle re-enacting "In The Shadow of Two Gunmen", splayed-limbs-across-the-pavement and all, when they were on their trip to DC last month.

Yup. It's official. My family are dorks. ;)
born and raised

I didn't even know there was a theme song. o.O

calantha42 spent half an hour this evening sitting in front of Youtube watching an uploaded episode of Rainbow Brite.

And then I browsed eBay and Amazon and did you know? The Rainbow Brite movie and the two good(ish) Care Bears movies are on DVD. (Plus I found a shirt that I suddenly want rather badly.)

I'm tempted to buy the DVDs just for sheer nostalgia. But *then* we could have Girly 80s Cartoon Night like we were planning, but without the jury-rigging of somebody else's VCR and the slow torture-to-death of twenty-year-old VHS tapes.

I am so completely three. ;)

I get paid tomorrow. And before I responsibly use my paycheque to pay off my parents, my credit cards, and my utility bills, I am going to go out and buy something frivolous. Like a jump drive. Or a wireless router.

Okay, so as calantha42 pointed out, those things are not all that frivolous.

Clearly I need to work on that.

I *will* go to LUSH. And I will buy new jeans, as I only have two pairs I can wear to work and I need a rotation, really.

And I'll have you know that despite the fact that my monitor has been making That Weird Noise on and off for a couple of weeks now, I am *not* going to buy a new 20-inch LCD just because it's on sale.


Totally not.

This month, anyway.
