To pull a [livejournal.com profile] montoya, I'll post consecutive posts.

17 years ago today, the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] hennyanya consented to be my wife. I'm still lucky.

Well, I now have to wonder just how many mayflies it takes to show up on weather radar.

That's, um, a LOT of protein

Fun stuff.

Should have had this on other meme, but, oh well.

Culinary Guilt: IHOP, Beef & Cheddar.
Explain yourself: Roast Beef, Cheddar Cheese, Sourdough Bread, Parmesan Butter. Sinful. Also, it's been off the menu for over 5 years, but they'll still make it for me. (Aside: Seriously, I have no name there. I'm just "Beef & Cheddar Guy". I get my food FAST though, since they start making it when I walk in!)

Literary Guilt: I'll avoid the obvious Robert Jordan answer, and go with L.E. Modesitt, Jr.
Explain yourself: He's a hack, yet I really enjoy reading his stuff when the mood strikes me. The onomatopoeia will never stop being jarring, though.

TV/Movie Guilt: The Fifth Element
Explain yourself: Never has a movie so bad been so good. Colorful, expansive, scene-chewing goodness.

Musical Guilt: Linkin Park
Explain yourself: God, they suck. So why can't I stop singing/humming/tapping along with their stuff?

Celebrity Guilt: Jessica Alba
Explain yourself: As a practicing heterosexual male, I feel no need to defend my stance here.

Name a CD you own that you think no one else on your friends list does:
Well, none. [livejournal.com profile] hennyanya is on my friends list, and I live in a joint property state. This answer applies to all the questions, so I'll have to ignore her or this will be really, really boring.

Wolfsheim, Spectators - German New Wave Synth Pop, but good nonetheless.

Name a book you own that you think no one else on your friends list does:
Hmm. I'm either going to have to go really technical or whip out one of the books that are given to me be well meaning but intensely religious relatives.

Donald Knuth, Seminumerical Algorithms: The Art of Computer Programming, V. 1-3

Name a Movie/DVD/VHS that you own that you think no one else on your friends list has:

Tiny Planets - Bing & Bong

(And if you have little kids, Bing & Bong stuff is waaaaaaaaaaaay cute. Honest.)

Name a place that you have visited that you think no one else on your friends list has:
Oooh, one I can answer even with [livejournal.com profile] hennyanya included.

Vanuatu.

Name a tool/piece of technology you own that you think no one else on your friends list owns:

Tons, if you include all of the medical equipment I at least partially own (like CT scanners, MRIs, PET scanners, ultrasounds and the like), but as far as personal stuff goes, Amiga 4000.

OK, I feel like I'm now truly in touch with my Inner Asshole, since I just hurt myself laughing about this.

It's the small ones you have to look out for

I am *so* goddamn sick of the Culture Of Corruption Formerly Known as Washington, D.C. -- but it does look like some housecleaning is going on.

Wire? What Wire? Oh, you mean *this* Wire?

Merry Christmas, y'all.

(And no, this was *supposed* to be posted this morning, yet inexpicably wasn't. So, it's an afternoon though now. Enjoy the remainder of your day nonetheless.)

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the only history class you'll ever need.

World War II as a Real Time Strategy game

Halfway into it. Verdict so far:

Massive spoilers )

EDIT: Done with the book.

Really, truly, massive spoilers. I mean it this time! )

Serenity

Non-spoiler review of Serenity:

Kicked ass, took names, Joss Whedon writes great dialogue, well worth the $8.50 admission, quite a few things happened that I did NOT expect, the trailers for this movie are incredibly deceptive, and finally -- I want to see it again.

I have no higher praise for any movie, since I hate rewatching films.

If you liked Firefly, you need to see this movie.

If you never saw Firefly, you'll probably like this movie.

If you hated Firefly, you'll probably like this movie, and should seek professional help. Firefly kicked ass, whatsa matta wit'chu?

In a rare moment of synchronicity, I started my last entry with a mental monologue:

What a rotten day at work. I wonder what's for dinner tonight? I'll swing by the store and grab some steaks, that sounds good.

After I took a Vicodin and napped while the swimmy head and aching ankle sorted themselves out, my dog went utterly ballistic and would not shut up, forcing me to go see what had her so bothered.

It was the Roving Steak Man (TM). Who sold me a veritable shitload of steak. Cheap.

In that spirit, I'd like to present THIS monologue:

"Great, now I have to drive to Home Depot to buy some snow shovels to remove the GREAT HEAPING PILES OF MONEY THAT ARE CLUTTERING MY LAWN."

That is all.

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] missysedai.

Look, no cursing in this entry!

Warning, long rant ahead, filled with bile, invective, tears and anger. )

Update: Unfriendlocked, and bracing for potential shitstorm.

SFW, unless your boss is a reader.

Rummy's visit.
