05:31 pm: In which I absent myself a while.
On sabbatical. For the next month or so I will be on sabbatical in my head. It may look like I am at work or the grocery store or some such, but really I am alone, in my library, with a lone manservant to bring me drinks. My only conversations with books.

09:55 am: phones
I'm thinking about getting a prepaid phone for the car in case of emergencies (I had a flat the other week on I-75 going up to visit the 'rents, can't remember if I posted about that). Any suggestions?

I also need to remember to get a new bag of kitty litter to put in the trunk, had to actually use the one I had in there for its intended purpose when I found Bampf!.

Hmmmm, might as well pick up some more fleece blankets as well. Stupid winter, it feels like it should still be September. I'm going to be doing a lot of driving in the next month. Bah.

Eh, if it was the warm months I'd be complaining about not being able to breathe.

01:49 pm: Beh?
When did it become halfway through December? My semester ends tonight at 9:40 (and you better believe I'm using every last minute) and I've kind of been putting some things off. Like cleaning. And putting x-mas cards in the mail. And buying gifts. Some of you may get your presents a bit... late. Erm, sorry bout that.

04:29 pm: Hey, I _Can_ Be Kind of Nasty!
I've been trying to get an answer on some medical records for weeks now. I finally get a hold of the lady in charge of them and she pissed me off royally. It's a much longer story, but I must ask you all this: What kind of person makes up a conversation with _you_ as the other participant, and gets angry when you refuse to agree with their delusion? The best part was she _insisted_ the date of this conversation was a date I was not in the office. I very bluntly poked all sorts of holes in her story. She sounded a bit upset by the end of it: I hope she didn't cry, but she might have. I just get really fucking annoyed when people lie right to me and try to put words in my mouth. Especially when they do it _so badly_.

08:12 am: Mmmmmmm, parentheses.
Today I am leaving early for lunch with Jimmay! and The Girls! (which should be a rockband). I told the valets (I have no choice in my parking, you may not park your own car here) what time I was leaving so they would know to park my car in an easy to get at spot (I usually leave at 5:30 and am thus parked behind lots of people and I didn’t want them to have to move lots of cars to get at me). Anyway, the reply? Ducked head and “Yes, Ma’am”. Yes, the ma’am had a capital M. It was not something said to someone in deference to age/wisdom (I am mistaken for a teenager far too often for that), it was something that implied social strata. What the fuck? I treat everyone exactly the same, so why are they treating me like I’m one of those people who cares about idiotic social constructs? I treat the valets the same as I treat the attorneys and the attorneys the same as I treat the valets. Okay, I treat the valets better. I refer to everyone by their first name, I don’t care if you’re higher up the work ladder than me or “lower”. Traditionally the only people I’ve afforded honorifics are teachers and people whose first names I can’t remember. This is really bugging me, they’ve never done this before. The girl who works down there never looks me in the eye and lately hasn’t been saying ‘hi’ back in the morning. Did I inadvertently do something to make them think I’m some idiotic snob bitch? This may seem an overreaction but I see these people every morning and their attitude towards me has definitely changed. Sigh.

Current Mood: worried/annoyed.

02:55 pm: x-mas ideas
If you don't know what to get someone for x-mas, get them this. Best. Story. Evar. I randomly picked it up the other day after probably 6 years without a reread and I can't believe I forgot how awesome it is.

02:02 pm: Been annoyed for a long time at the perception of gamers in society and today I've been poking around, reading archives of Penny Arcade, and reading up on 1st class idiot Jack Thompson. A couple of things I read combined to inspire me to something I'm too lazy to actually do. I believe it was Jack Thompson that called certain video games "Murder Simulators" and claimed they were nothing more than a way to train people to commit murders in real life. By this logic my unbelievably awesome Dr. Mario skillz are translatable to real world doctorin' and will implant in my fragile little mind an unresistible urge to shovel pills down the throats of random strangers. I've also seen some people opine that the reaction against video games is something we've seen before in the reaction against rock n' roll and comic books: a knee-jerk reaction by older generations who don't get this new and 'scary' thing. Video games are eviiiiil because there is kiiillliiing in them. So I thought, hey, maybe we should put up a parody website decrying mystery novels. I mean, look at all the _death_. These lovely vicars and what not getting murdered, why, we're going to have loads of people slipping poison into tea and crazed vigilante grandmother's who think they're _really detectives_, wandering about crime scenes and trying to solve stuff. Unbelievable horrors! This was funnier in my head.
