[personal profile] enotsola, apparently unable to get out of bed (sleepiness/laziness, not pain or injury): Nope, still not working.
me: What, your motivator?
[personal profile] enotsola: Nope.
me: "This R2 unit has a bad motivator."
[personal profile] enotsola: Are not.
me: What?
[personal profile] enotsola: Are too, are not.
me: You're an Are Not unit?
[personal profile] enotsola, having flopped end for end in the bed but still not managing to get upright on the floor: I'm an Are Not unit.
arethinn: (campbell (she'll think i'm a loony))
"They're some kind of poly blob."
"What's that got to do with airship dicks?"

"Apparently fluorescent lighting was discovered in 1492."
"Huh?"
"When Columbus sailed the fluorescent tube."

arethinn: Wakko Warner blinking (humor silly (wakko))
Woo, [personal profile] enotsola and I are going to see a local company's production of Spamalot on April 30th! Way cheaper than when it was playing in San Francisco a while back, IIRC. I picked a Sunday matinee, so there shall likely be Brunch beforehand, with Mimosas, and it will all be Very Cultured, because Monty Python is so High Class.*


* That was just a lie. They ain't never caught a killer rabbit--**

** We apologize for the fault in the footnotes. Those responsible have been sacked.

sass chicken: girl at the water fountain just complemented me on my hair and said it was like some kind of "intergalactic space thing"
sass chicken: i guess because my greys are shiny
sass chicken: (space hair?)
Stygian Syzygy: you are some intergalactic space thing

(My grey hairs tend to stick out among my purple dye, since I don't bleach my medium-slightly-reddish-brown and the rest of my hair thus looks pretty dark, especially if not backlit. The silver ones, on the other hand, turn !PURPLE!. As for the video footnote to understand what I was getting at with that last remark, uh, sorry for the earworm?)

Uhhh... I don't think the Mercury meant this headline to be funny...
San Jose Bacon Festival postponement can't be blamed on police shortage, city contends


Actual article goes on to say that the SJ police (who are in the middle of a staffing crisis) say event organizers submitted their permits too late for them to be ready for Labor Day weekend, but still... *sniggers juvenilely*

Somewhat pursuant to this entry from February puzzling over the grammar in dialog boxes in Word 2013:

evasive noodle: "Would you like to keep the last item you copied? If so, it may take us a bit longer to exit." -- when I close Word very quickly after copying something to the clipboard
evasive noodle: I still wonder who the "we" is and why it's speaking in the plural first person
evasive noodle: clearly i am not exiting so I think it must be an exclusive we internal to the program
evasive noodle: especially since it addresses me in the second person
evasive noodle: it is imps [referring to the imps inside iconographs in Discworld]
Stygian Syzygy: That's... a scary concept
evasive noodle: the first person singular would be twee. the first person plural is just baffling
Stygian Syzygy: Imps. And Clippy.
evasive noodle: their dark lord Clippy
arethinn: text "You always a wiseass? No, sometimes I'm asleep." on blue-grey background (humor sarcasm (wiseass))
Stygian Syzygy: I think I'm going to be a ninnyhammer and go out in this heat [~90F] and get some coffee

an important French mustard: how bout i do anyway.wav
arethinn: Purple and pink cartoon Cheshire Cat, grinning (crazysauce (cheshire cat))
enchawntment!: it's a little odd that in office 2013 they changed the grammar of the confirmation message for search and replace
enchawntment!: 2010 says "x replacements were made"
enchawntment!: 2013 says "We made x replacements"
enchawntment!: I dunno if they just wanted to move away from the passive voice, or what, but I find myself thinking, "who we, Billy G?"
Stygian Syzygy: heh
enchawntment!: it's the ghost of Clippy
Stygian Syzygy: .... no
enchawntment!: well, then who is the other party to the "we"?
enchawntment!: if not some kind of embodiment of the software?
enchawntment!: actually, since English doesn't distinguish between exclusive and inclusive we, maybe I should be picturing imps or something
enchawntment!: like, not it and I made the replacements, but two or more of them, whatever they are
enchawntment!: "We made x replacements. NOW GIVE US THE SACRIFICE"
arethinn: Flounder from The Little Mermaid, screaming, text "AAAAAA" (scared (flounder aaa))

Shenanigator: How it [coleslaw] will be, I have no idea
we'll see later
once it has time to percolate!

Arethinn: ah, okies!
i assume that means you did not follow the recipe exactly, heh

Shenanigator: Oh.. was that wrong?

arethinn: Freakazoid! (humor silly (freakazoid))
Celebron: So, apparently Megatron came to earth to transform all of our technology into weapons to fight the autobots
Arethinn: ... wouldn't he already have better tech at his disposal?
Arethinn: being, you know, a giant living robot from beyond the stars
Celebron: he does, but basically needed parts
Arethinn: LOL
Arethinn: oookay
Celebron: but... he's been frozen on earth for... well, at least 100+ years.. and was looking to turn our electronics into decepticons
Celebron: and "all our modern technology is made from reverse engineering this giant icecube here"
Celebron: so... he came here to make use of technology that we only have because we studied his frozen body.
Celebron: ...
Arethinn: ah
Arethinn: wait
Arethinn: what?
Celebron: exactly!
Arethinn: so, he originally wanted our tech 100+ years ago?
Arethinn: decepticons are made from vacuum tubes?
Arethinn: maybe he wanted to kidnap Tesla.
Arethinn: just get to the part where someone stands under a scrotum

[yes, I know that's a later movie]
