I'm having some kind of creepy evening of euphoria right now. No, it is not chemically induced, but it is weird. I keep having vague urges to hug people and tell them they are wonderful. I'm mulling a rant I've wanted to do for a while to vent out some feelings, but for the life of me, I've completely forgotten what it was about. But I'm sure I felt very strongly about it.

Me Me Me

Grades were posted and I got my A in C++. Let me just say this: WHEEEE. I cuddle it and feed it brownies. But I--now that I know this part--really want to know what I got on the last lab and the two tests. I still have no idea what to do when I report to the new job, but I assume that showing up and looking hopeful will do the trick. I'm currently amused by my bosses, who spent quality time going over my MO ("You'll be quiet and stealthy," my boss said, deadpan. "They will think you are nice." "And then one day they'll wake up and realize they've given me awesome cosmic powers to all the programs and can do nothing to stop me," I answered. My boss: "Think they'll give you a committee to run?" Me: "Please don't warn them about that.")

Randomly

For those interested in OTW:

Current Board and Committee Members

OTW Open Chat Information

I'll quote from the entry briefly:

Next week on Thursday, December 27th will be our first OTW Group Chat. We will be using Campfire, which can host up to 25 people in a room. At least one member of the board and one member of ComRel (Community Relations) will be in there to answer questions, talk about what we've done so far, things we're working on, things we need help with, etc.

We'd have more OTW committee/board representation but we don't want to take up the room for everyone else to chat. We'd have it on IRC, but...well, if you've ever been in a room with more than 20 people, you know that things can tend to get pretty crazy and blinding.

For those who attend; we look forward to reports! Yes, I know there will be a transcript available, but anyone non-OTW who feels like doing a read-friendly version, please link me if you do!

I have come to realize that shopping with a boycott of media for the Writer's Guild strike is--really terrifying. DVDs are like, the *staple* of my gift giving here. Do they want a shirt/tie/book/random trinket is solved when you can skip all that and hit the DVD section. I keep staring at it longingly from across the store and feelign a vague urge to write to the producers long, long emails with randomly mislabeled links to wherever goatse currently resides.

I have a dark side, I admit it. It gets darker the longer I am denied Battlestar Galactica season two.

ETA: WHEE GOLD STAR! THANK YOU!

(Yes. I am someone who does the glee laugh when seeing the lj gifts. They are just. So. Cute!)

Skin someone alive in fic, blame the AMPTP. You know you want to.

I DO NOT SKIN PEOPLE ALIVE. DESTROY SOULS = YES. SKINNING != YES.

I feel your use of the '!' to signify the negative merely proves that you will. You will.

I'll settle for John and Rodney overthrow Earth. *innocent*

...didn't I do that already?

*thoughtful* I don't think so-- at least-- not the way I'm thinking of.

...I'm sort of in a Tom Clancy place. You know, OMG BOMB! OMG LEADERSHIP DEAD! OMG YOU BE LEADER!

John: OMG NO! I WILL BLOW STUFF UP THAT'S IT!

Rodney: OMG I AM NOT VP! I AM NOT EVEN AMERICAN! ALSO IT'S SUCH A HOLLOW JOB!

Caps make everything sound more reasonable *wide eyes*.

*eyes back*

*with raised eyebrow, right*

*eyebrows with waggles*
