Kind of. In a very tired, too-much-damn-training sort of way.

Getting to that. See, today, I committed technodultery.

*sighs* I cheated on my work computer with another one. Very traumatic--to both. At least, that's the only explanation I can come up with as to why the computer I was training on today KEPT LOGGING ME OUT EVERY FIVE SECONDS.

So, I have a theory.

All these computers are networked--kind of. People who do this sort of thing know what it's called, but there we are. I logged into the training computer, and obviously, my One True Work Computer recognized my login, despite the fact I was miles away at the training facility. Insta!rage. So it obviously started a barrage attack on my training computer in a jealous, molten rage of possessive anger.

It's a delicate thing, balancing the computers in my life. I want to make them feel secure, loved, appreciated. My home computer, of course, understands I am whimsical and also, cannot take it to work with me every day. It knows its place in my life. My work computer? Not so much. I think the fact I've only really had it for a month is screwing with its self-esteem--our adjustment period after it's First True User left was difficult, but I felt we had a connection. I think, when I get back to the office on Friday, we're going to need to have a long talk about boundaries and flings with foreign computers that don't detract from how I feel about it.

Until then, a tech is working on my training computer to see why on earth it was acting like it took a high dose of PCP.

I've named work computer Max, by the way. Training computer may be called a variety of expletitives, none of which are appropriate for polite company. Luckily, none of you are. *g*

Recs

stalkingeric is the place to be. Totally. Where bexless is writing this funny, cute, FUNNY, adorable, VERY COOL College!Clark and College!Lex fic. The definitive one. Also probably the first one, so definitely definitive. It's called Roomies, three parts so far.

Also, box_of_serial is puttering along nicely as Liv hits part 26 of Altville and man, I want to marry her and make her write for me ALL THE TIME. Which is, well, kind of disturbing, don't you think?

And on Saturday, dammitcarl posted Truth in Smoke at selling_out. How the Band Got Together. Oh mmmm. You rock, honey. So very much.

Distrubing News

Apparently, watching SpongeBob SquarePants on repeat is just a bad idea any way you look at it.

Take Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, who are possibly my new OTP.

I shouldn't slash cartoon character. Especially octogenarian ones. You'd think that would be a given. But no. They share a bathroom. They wear pajamas constantly. And please, ward? Like I bought that with Batman! I sat there, with soda, dead sober, watching this, going, huh. Why am I seeing this? Did someone drug me? Do I NEED to be drugged?

Similar issues arise with Rocket Power, and yes, you know which two strangely single, no-women-around, constantly vacationing and reminiscing together men I speak of.

My brain scares me badly. I won't even go into the strange chemistry of Patrick and Squidwarts, especially with that entire best-friends, bathtubs-thing in that one ep, and this is where I officially send in my reservation for the handbasket.

*sighs* And here I never believed TV rotted your brain.

I'm finishing up the 'why did I friend you' meme thingie, so if anyone wants to be added, feel free to toss your name in the ring. Hat in the ring. Hat-ring? Is a ring even involved?

Oh God, I'm tired AND rotting.

Our computers must be related. Mine is my first, and we used to have a wonderful reciprocative relationship. Then I start thinking about getting a laptop -- and an Apple at that, undoubtably a high offense to a Dell -- and it starts whacking out on me, having Explorer commit random errors and taking down my wonderful HoYay! desktop. ::sigh::

Anyway, I know you don't know me (I just de-lurked), but would you mind if I friended you?

Yes! Computers are like that! Strange, freaky, jealous things.

*grins* Feel free to friend as you please. And nice to meet you!

You need to start watching Fairly Odd Parents and the Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius. Both have had eps. where the main character switched gender. FOP is always making jokes about Cosmo being a fairy. Timmy's teacher dresses up in a red latex dress and says that it makes him feel pretty. In one episode of Jimmy Neutron, Jimmy's friends Carl and Sheen discuss their favorite cartoon character, Ultralord, and whether or not he should have a llama sidekick named Carlito.

And I haven't even gotten to the Crimson Chin and the Bronze Kneecap yet.

*suspicious* What ABOUT the Crimson Chin? I watched that!

And yes, Cosmo. *hee* I can say I'm glad I never saw Timmy's teacher in red latex, though. That--might have been scarring. Replace "might" with "definitely would have been".

*grin*

I'm finishing up the 'why did I friend you' meme thingie, so if anyone wants to be added, feel free to toss your name in the ring. Hat in the ring. Hat-ring? Is a ring even involved?

Is that like pulling the bunny out of the hat? Consider my name tossed your way. *g*

Yes, but with less fur and more verbosity. In a manner of speaking.

*g* Added. *bows* At your service, as always.

(*pops head in*) Yes, but Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy were designed to be slashy and fun like that. It's not wrong - it's canon. ;)

Also, if you like Spongebob and MM&BB, you might like Don't Eat The Neighbours. Slashiest, most hilarious cartoon ever. Again, it's written that way deliberately. >:D

Do you think it's a nice special hell? ;P

*looks at decorating* Better than I expected. *g*

I WILL not actively slash cartoons, I WILL not actively slash cartooons....

*worries more*

There should be support groups, but I'm a bit worried about what would happen if you got a whole group of people like this in one room together. ;P

I've never watched SpongeBob, but completely non-slash-type coworkers have come up to me, mentioned the show, asked for a definition of slash, and walked off nodding.

Apparently, the show couldn't be more obvious if it tried.

*dies laughing* Oh DAMN that must have been funny.

Yes, it's--well. *thinks* Yeah. Very, very slashy.

Apparently, SpongeBob has quite a large cult following among gays.

I hate it when I accidently copy the way another person said something.

*snickers* I do that all the time.

I'm finishing up the 'why did I friend you' meme thingie, so if anyone wants to be added, feel free to toss your name in the ring. Hat in the ring. Hat-ring? Is a ring even involved?

*throws hat* I think it's a webring. Or at least it should be.

*hee* Added. *hugs*

The definitive one. Also probably the first one, so definitely definitive

*laughs and laughs*

You're a sweetie *snugs*

Oh, and why did you friend me? *grins*

Nah, I'm manipulative and trying to get more fic out of you. *grins*

And as you wish, chica. *waves*

LOL! terrifc post about your computer. :)

EVIL computer. Which I am working on RIGHT NOW.

It's been disturbingly good today so far. I have no idea what it's planning.

Add me to the Why did you friend me list, please. I've been very much enjoying your answers to that, and have found several new interesting people thru them. You're apparently a multipurpose pimp - people as well as fic. :)

*chokes and starts giggling*

I need a pinstriped Cadillac. *mulls*

*adds*

Actually, I once considered doing a Spongebob vid to "Deep As You Go" by October Project. I figured I could speed up the song about 20% and it would make a really good voice for him.

Then my roommate threatened grievous bodily harm and I decided not to.

Sigh.
