Amazon is this special addiction, because you can't just buy one thing. Well, you *can*, but if you buy less than twenty-five, is it even really worth it? Exended lunch hours are dangerous things. So anyway, I decided to impulsively surprise my dad with Dark Tower five.

This is why I don't buy him things if I can somehow get him money or food instead.

Me: So. Did you know Stephen King's last two Dark Tower books are going to be released this year? *casual* We don't have number five, do we?

Dad: I'm not going to read them.

Me: What?

Dad: They talk about this tinny sound.

Me: ...tinny sound?

Dad: It makes my ears ring.

Me: ....

Mom: It makes your ears ring?

Me: When you read it?

Dad: Yeah.

Mom: ....

Me: So you aren't going to read what is possibly the last three books Stephen King will ever write because reading about something involving a tinny sound in one of the books makes your ears ring?

Dad: Yeah.

See, I come by my neuroticism honestly.

Weird Shows

Child has become enamored of The Kids Next Door, which is probably one of those shows that works a lot better for an adult if you take a hit of something first. There's really no other explanation.

Also, George of the Jungle II just hurts me to watch. I like humor. I like silliness. But I started breaking down with the number of times George referred to himself in the third person in the same speech. And the plotholes....

Child finds it amazingly good. I bite my tongue and take allergy meds.

Work

I went back to my home office to observe client interviews all day. Unfortunately, not so much with the interview-watching, but lots of working the front desk. There are some things that I can't handle, and one of them is watching clients line up and not being able to do something. My logins still worked, so I had a blast. Also, they made a mess of my desk.

M: It's not your desk anymore.

Me: I don't see anyone claiming it for Spain here, so yeah, it's mine.

M: Jenn....

Me: MINE. What in the name of God did these people do to my forms?

It was just the scariest thing. You know, in theory, they are getting along just fine without me. I mean, I'm not irreplaceble, I *know* that, and only my ego could be under that impression, but I did spend about thirty minutes today watching and wondering why we didn't have rioting in the lobby. That's just before I took a window.

Annoying

Somehow, I pulled a muscle under my right shoulderblade. I have no idea waht is up with that. It hurts very randomly, or rather, very specifically--deep breaths, coughs, sneezes, and moving my arm in a way it doesn't like. This includes pretty much all movement.

Recs

And So We Begin by Erin. Because this is fun. Spoilers for future ep arc.



It could be just me, or is anyone else salivating at the thought of Justin beating the shit out of people?

Right, I'm a sick, sick person. I'm so going to hell. This has been established, so let's move beyond it. I like angst, and I have a sad, sad kink for violence that really, I know, me bad, whatever. Every bit of angst is pretty much worth it, since I get to see Justin violent and carrying weapons. And from the clips, I don't think Justin's exactly turned-off or anything by what he's doing either.

It doesn't hurt that Brian holds a gun either.

*thinks*

Of course, I also cheered Lex when he was shooting Nixon, and my top Smallville happy place is the image of Lex holding that gun on Nixon, so you know, I'm kinda doomed already.

Just going to indulge my inner darkness here. Pay no mind.

Waitaminute. Waitaminute. Reading makes his ears ring!? The fuck!?

That's kinda what I was thinking. I figure I'll leave it where he can see it and he'll lose his resistance. That ear thing just threw me.

Surreal conversatino is my life around my parents sometimes.

Just say no Jenn. Allergy meds are probably necessary things though. Too much damn pollen. Silly immune system. My IgE antibodies are out of control...

Me: I don't see anyone claiming it for Spain here, so yeah, it's mine.

No little Spanish flags on toothpicks?

I *need* a flag, badly. I should design myself one, like any good conqueror.

God, tell me about it. My training building is insane. I feel like I am going to collapse in there every day. Besides from the sheer cold of it. *shivers in memory*

Kids Next Door and Sponge Bob Squarepants - two shows that adult can only understand when high.

I haven't seen George of the Jungle yet - but isn't it a movie? Thus it will eventually be retired. Babygirl, on the other hand, adores That's So Raven - a show of such deep stupidity and bad writing that I have to put my hands over my ears in order to be in the same room with it.

And it is a series.

And Disney does MARATHONS of it.

I'd rather put an icepick through my head - but Babygirl thinks it is the coolest thing ever.

*boggles*

There are actual pot references in Sponge Bob Squarepants.
Don't forget "Cow and Chicken" and "Teletubbies". If they're still around. Seriously though? Teletubbies? Has singing shower heads and a giggling baby in the sun. Could be a bad trip.

It all requires crack. Nick and Disney should be handing the stuff out in goody bags.

;-)

I am banning that from the TV like, right now. I've seen the adverts, but Nick's into superheroes, so far, so safe.

But anything could happen.....

Did I tell you that the other day he was playing outside in a t-shirt and a *black slip*? When he was asked, what the fuck, but in kid's words, because I am not that crass, he just said that it was less--I'm trying to remember the word he used, but the grown-up version is encumbering.

NOthnig like Child running after a ball in the front yard wearing a *black slip*.

*still shocky*

OMG!!!!

A black slip?!?!?! LOL I could not have kept a straight face!

Rei ran up to me the other day and said: "Hey Mama! I'm half a boy and half a girl!"

*bites cheek*

"Why do you say that, honey?"

"'Cause I like some boy things and some girl things. So I'm half a boy."

"Oh."

right.

Of course.

*runs inside to laugh*

You are not alone in your love of the Justin violence. But then, I'm with Valerie, the boy could kill kittens on-screen and I'd be just fine with that. Of course, I'm not all that fond of cats. *ponders*

And I know that the fandom is all a-twitter with how worried and concerned Brian is, but after three seasons, I can say with a fair amount of confidence that Brian is not exactly immune to the appeal of violence. In fact, he often strikes me as rather partial to it. Certainly, the chairsex scene would seem to support that belief.

And Brian holding a gun just feeds my desire for more AUs with P. I. Brian and that one I'm pondering starring Indiana Kinney. I mean, not only is there a gun in that scenario but also a fedora and a whip. I don't think there's any bad here.

Amazon is a special kind of crack.
So, so good.
*sigh*
