    So I realized a while ago that ccdf is basically serving as a de facto genchat for kintsugi, so I thought why not make one without all the wank attached?
    And then it took me like a month to make it, but eh.

    So how was your day, kintsugi? I spent all afternoon staring at Science Rainbows of one form or another.

    My day has been pretty good.
    Having an awkward discussion about shipping with my boyfriend, which boils down to I ship all the things and he ships very few things and is mildly weirded out by it. Which is sad, cause our rp characters would be a hilarious couple and I'm mildly disappointed that I won't get to play that XD
    Other than that, I got to hang out with friends, even if one of them is sick so we couldn't go swimming :( and I had chai tea :D

    Yesssssss, ship all the things!
    Especially the total crack pairings that somehow wind up canon

    Yeesssssss that is my philosophy.
    Crack pairings are the best pairings. They're just so much fun!
    I end up shipping the most ridiculous things (esp with my own characters XD)

    I'm engaging in some real-world trolling by nitpicking a settlement agreement when I know the other side is (1) super-anxious to get this resolved; and (2) the client on the other side is . . . er . . . "excitable".

    Trolling is actually a useful thing to do sometimes.

    Oh this is great!

    I've had a pretty nice day. Had art thoughts. Bought some really pretty notebooks to journal in. Had a GREAT dinner with my dad and bro, the best in a long time. And also my dad bought me a microwave! Caught me completely by surprise. I'm very excited about this boring adult acquisition :D

    I am not 100% sure where this belongs, so I'm just going to leave it here.

    All Guardsmen Party

    Play report from a Dark Heresy game in which the PCs are ex-Guardsmen now serving as grunts for the Inquisition. I have been reading it whenever I had a free moment for the past few days and cracking up.

    i got asked to sing at a donor reception for the local top opera company (I sing in their chorus) and tonight when I ran one of my arias with the pianist (who's conducting the fall opera and is the chorusmaster for the opera company) said "you have a wonderful voice" and basically told me that I should look at Monteverdi's Vespers because it's going to be done (i guess with the winnipeg symphony orchestra) with one of the U of M choirs and they're going to need a soloist.

    holy fucking shit on a stick guys i might actually have a shot at being a professional musician.

    and my new voice teacher gave me a hell of a spanking on Tuesday in my lesson and basically said "look these are the lazy habits you've gotten into you have got to get rid of them" and everything is changing and people with influence already want me to sing and my technique is changing and my voice is getting five zillion times better

    i'm gonna cry

    swirlingflight inane analysis and story spinning is my passion

    man, the "this is not a X" thing is now forever associated with computers for me

    one of my roommate's dads visits from time to time, and he's big into computers and programming and whatnot. the last time he was by, he and i hung out in the dining room for like 4 hours, chatting computer basics. and by basics i mean basics, computer history as in switch boards and punch cards and transistors and how spinning discs actually involved going to the place on the disc and whatnot. i absorbed tiny bits of it.

    but the relevance is, early on in the conversation, he grabbed a piece of paper and drew the following on it:
    | O
    he asked me what it was.

    I looked at it, saw 10, translated it over to binary to show off that i knew some things, and answered him "2!" with this smug expression. he considered me for a minute, nodded a little, and said "this is a symbol."

    he went on to chat about how it can mean one-zero, it can mean ten, it can be a line and a circle, it can be a cyclops' emote, and yes---in binary, it symbolizes 2. but the point to take away is that, with all programming, everything is symbols. and knowing what symbols stand for, and the system in which they're working, goes a long way to being able to understand what they're doing and choose to do things.

    argh. i wrote outlines for my two short essays that are due Monday, and I need to write them. but i have already done a crapton of chores today (vacuumed, did several days' worth of dishes, cleaned the cat litter, folded and put away 3/4 of the laundry - last 1/4 needs to be washed) and tried to run an outside errand but the place was closed, and I have a rehearsal tonight

    and i need to go over the music for that rehearsal, as well as the music for church in the morning since I missed rehearsal last night

    and i'm hungry. it is J and my anniversary this weekend. my Sunday is insane - church in the morning, then we're helping friends move, then I have another rehearsal. so J came up with the idea that we should go out for fancy poutine for anniversary dinner. cheap and small but special. i think it's a great plan. we also have a bogo movie ticket coupon which expires on the 4th so we need to use it.

    daylight savings time is tonight so i'd get an extra hour of sleep, which i desperately need.

    current decisions. poutine tonight after rehearsal or tomorrow after rehearsal? movie tonight after rehearsal or tomorrow after rehearsal?

    my ideal: poutine tonight after rehearsal, movie tomorrow after rehearsal. i get a full night's sleep and also maybe can do essay work.

    i also want to just keel over and sleep right now but it's only three in the fucking afternoon and i need to keep doing things ugh.

    Hey I was wondering- how old do you think is too old to trick or treat? I think that as long as you're polite and in costume there shouldn't really be a limit, but I'm planning on going out tonight and am riddled with the same anxiety that has basically kept me from going since I moved.

    I'm going, am my sister went last year when she was in grade nine.. I agree with you on the limit. If you are super worried you might try going with a group?

    Lol I have basically zero friends- the one other person i know (who got this idea into my head in the first place) is going to a party, so he's out :c I'm not really worried for good reasons, since I know people my age who usually go, and I am going to be in costume, and I look younger than I am apparently- it's mostly just anxiety poking me with a stick because it thinks that's fun.

    Got into an argument with dog over who exactly a childhood stuffed animal belongs to.

    I really need to work on his "drop the fucking thing" command without having to grab a fucking reward toy or treat. Some situations are a little too urgent for that.
