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*
arethinn: Joel Robinson giggling (amused (joel))
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: ....
an important French mustard: don't do eet
Stygian Syzygy: *does eet*
Stygian Syzygy is now Mobile.
an important French mustard: *sighs*
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))
me: It was a stuffed owl; relax.
[personal profile] enotsola: I know, but he still used a staple gun!
arethinn: Freakazoid! (humor silly (freakazoid))
"Like a good neighbor, State Farm is not a part of your life most of the time!"
arethinn: text "You always a wiseass? No, sometimes I'm asleep." on blue-grey background (humor sarcasm (wiseass))
Stygian Syzygy: yay sahz

kristine kochanski, apparently: is that how you spell it?
kristine kochanski, apparently: i can never keep it straight
Stygian Syzygy: no idea
Stygian Syzygy: I'm eating a sa,,ivh
Stygian Syzygy: and typing is gard
Stygian Syzygy: ghkchgck
kristine kochanski, apparently: are you typing with the sandwich?
arethinn: Wednesday Addams looking a bit crazy (weird (wednesday))
4:26:27 PM - Rainbow Coloured Menudo Vomit: stupid headache
4:26:38 PM - a strange coil of metal: i sowwy!

...our chat screen names are often very strange. O.o
arethinn: glowing green spiral (Default)
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
and not that you have made coleslaw in a coffee percolator
O.o
...i hope

Shenanigator: Oh.. was that wrong?
uhh..
err...
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]
arethinn: Wakko Warner blinking (humor silly (wakko))
Celebron: Eeep, I didn't even meeeeow!
Arethinn: eh?
Celebron: to let you know I exist
Arethinn: oh, that was some time ago then?
Celebron: yeah.. like... ages..
Arethinn: oh
Celebron: already fixed bugs since then!
Arethinn: i didn't see any toast [alert in the system tray from Pidgin], so
Arethinn: you know, that's a funny way of putting it
Arethinn: i know it pops up like toast, but no toast I've ever had went back down into the toaster all by itself
Arethinn: and the smooth motion, it's like it's trying to be sneaky
Arethinn: peering out over the rim and then retreating
Arethinn: TOAST NINJAS
Celebron: maybe not ninjas
Celebron: at least, not all of them
Arethinn: toast cat burglars?
Celebron: sometimes you see them
Celebron: those are the apprentices
arethinn: Freakazoid! (humor silly (freakazoid))
(discussing the fact that we often don't use up a container of milk before it goes bad)

Arethinn: but if we go all the way down to pints, the lack of being ultra pasteurized might not be a problem
Celebron: ahhh, true
Arethinn: quart seems to be a threshold
Arethinn: maybe we should just get a cow
Celebron: sure
Arethinn: that's obviously cheaper and easier
Celebron: we need a dwarf cow
Arethinn: you'd have to lie on the ground to milk it!
Arethinn: tho, i don't think it's like chickens and eggs, where they lay no matter what... cows don't lactate unless they get pregnant, right?
Arethinn: so we'd need a dwarf stud
Arethinn: actually, i think they artificially inseminate dairy cows
Arethinn: plus, i don't think Tyrion is available
Celebron: ...
Arethinn: ...what was in that coffee i just drank
arethinn: round waffles with text "ZOMG waffles" (weird (zomg waffles))
[personal profile] arethinn: Awww. I'm never baking pumpkin pie again.
[personal profile] enotsola: That's a silly thing to say.
[personal profile] arethinn: [points to this pie]
[personal profile] enotsola: What about it?
[personal profile] arethinn: How could any pie I make ever be that perfect?
[personal profile] enotsola: How do you know? Maybe it tastes like poop! Lick your monitor and tell me what it tastes like.
[personal profile] arethinn: ...hopefully not like poop. What have you been doing while I'm at work?
[personal profile] enotsola: I bet any pie you make would taste better than your monitor.
arethinn: Wakko Warner blinking (humor silly (wakko))
[personal profile] enotsola: FE MAN 3 - seen on a theater sign
[personal profile] arethinn: that's pretty metal
[personal profile] enotsola: :P
[personal profile] arethinn: 'cause, you see, iron is metal, and some would certainly say he's *pretty* metal at that, and also iron man is pretty metal in the badass sense, and...
[personal profile] enotsola: I got it, yes
[personal profile] arethinn: man, i owe you a drink for that one
arethinn: animated Space Ghost shaking his head (frustrated (space ghost))
dronarron: .... the thumpy music in the quad is that song they use for the Absolut Greyhound commercial
dronarron: I HATE OPENING WEEK OK
[...]
dronarron: OK YOUR MUSIC IS RATTLING THE LIGHT FIXTURES IN HERE
dronarron: like, the metal... grid... thing... that is over the fluorescent lights
Enotsola .: that's... fucked
Enotsola .: I'd be out there being like "some of us are trying to work, you insufferable bullet brains!"
dronarron: ...bullet brains?
dronarron: and to be fair, I'm not trying to work, exactly
Enotsola .: Of course not!
Enotsola .: You'd be unable to under these conditions!
dronarron: LOL
arethinn: animated Weird Al Yankovic with text "R O T F L O L" (amused (weird al rotflol))
typically frustrating brunette says:

conan obrien

Enotsola says:
I dunno, can't be worse than some of the people fox news has given shows to
arethinn: Freakazoid! (humor silly (freakazoid))
"It probably costs a third of a Lindsay Lohan to buy a 17th-century pirate ship."
arethinn: Wakko Warner blinking (humor silly (wakko))
Okay, I'm probably not the first person to think of this... and I'm sure thinking of it makes me a bad person... but in this image...
