Well, werk is switching me to a new facility again. I have now moved from VISN 16 to VISN 2 to VISN 23. I'll be billing for Minneapolis.

Minneapolis's schedule is 7-7 M-F and 8-4 on Saturdays.

I think I might cry.

Oh Neil Gaiman no!

Seriously, Neil, you are usually so good and on the ball! I get that we're all a bit blind to our S/O's faults, but seriously! A "no comment" might have been a better idea!

Am I going to have to put you on my List with Joss Whedon?




In other news, RPattz is still trying to get fired. I don't even know where to start with this.




So there's been a lot of teal deer talk about this matter. I'm not into shota, chan, loli, or bestiality. I'm also not particularly into m/m slash. Or male characters at all, really.

But this is so much bullshit. more teal deer )

TL;DR: Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it has no right to exist, and censoring pornography without outlawing the entire industry is dumb.

So, I've hit the Killer Croc level in Arkham Asylum, have reached the end of the Mikage/Black Rose Duellist arc in Utena, and let me tell you, one of these was more frustrating than the other (though they both have their low points).

Hint: Arkham Asylum stresses me out. Don't get me wrong, I love playing it. I love everything about it, from the way Batman moves to the 99.9% of the voice acting to the script to the gameplay. But being the goddamn Batman is stressful. (On the other hand, Batclaw to the face, suck on that, electro-rod henchmen!)

But the Killer Croc level takes just about everything that could possibly be irritating and/or frightening and throws it all into the blender. From following meters/scanners to completely retarded stealth injunctions (and dear lord the first time Croc lunged out of the water to eat me for lunch I about had a screaming panic attack) to very huge people bursting out of walls and trying to kill you--only to be stopped by Batarangs, no really.

It's so full of "What is this I don't even" that I just. I've had to stop at the checkpoint where I finally have all my fungus (yes, that's right, Batman is wandering around Croc's territory looking for fungus, jesus this game is made of wtf) and am supposed to be on my way back to the lair entrance. But Croc is being such a douchenozzle and I keep getting lost and it's just. Like. STOP DESTROYING MY DAMN WALKWAYS, CROC. ALSO PLEASE QUIT RUNNING AT ME FROM BEHIND BECAUSE I FREAK OUT.




Utena, on the other hand, has been very successful at washing the taste of being the goddamn Batman out of my brain.

Dear [personal profile] zvi:

I think you need to step back and reexamine your actions and your motives. Because it looks to me like you've got yourself in a hole, and rather than jump out of it, you're just continuing to dig.

Do you understand that your post in your journal about this tangent makes up a part of the larger imbroglio? Do you understand that people, in following the larger imbroglio, will re-direct their attention to your post, because you have positioned it as being a part of the larger discussion at hand?

I'm a late-comer to this, but from what I understand, the entry in question would not have received much attention--if any at all--had it not been posted to [community profile] linkspam, and had the resulting kerfuffle not been posted to [community profile] metafandom.

It is completely permissible to rabbit trail on a personal journal. That's half of what they're for. And if you rabbit trail on your personal journal, you're not hurting anything. You're not shutting down anybody else's conversations. You're not making a discussion between or about other parties all about you.

If the user in question had posted links to that entry here, back, and beyond indicating that it should be part of the discussion, you would have a point. If the user in question had invaded somebody else's meta post and gone off on this tangent, or had deliberately re-directed someone else's conversation, you would have a point.

But from all indications I've seen, the user in question did none of that.

Not everybody wants to be part of every conversation all the time. I will say this again: not everybody wants to be part of every conversation all the time, and it is ridiculous that you would drag someone into a fight they didn't agree to enter.

This user didn't even have the option to say, "Please take that link down, I don't want to be part of this discussion."

The party who linked the "derailing" entry was [community profile] linkspam. If [community profile] linkspam felt that the post was only tangentially related, it had the option of not linking. To decide to link a tangentially related post, tag it as "derailing," and then offer no recourse for the link's removal is, gasp shock surprise, appropriating somebody else's content.

Let's try that again, just to make absolutely sure my logic is clear. [community profile] linkspam took something that was not [community profile] linkspam's, without permission, and posted it under a label one hundred percent sure to offend--again without permission--thus using content for [community profile] linkspam's own purposes in a way it had not been intended.

What exactly would you call that?

Victoly.

My seven o'clock goal--on overtime--is 137 bills total.

Guess what I reached at 6:20? That's right, baby, forty minutes early~

Tomorrow, I donate blood for the first time since I left GreenLife. I'm a little nervous.

What if my iron's low again? What if my blood sugar's high? What if I contracted some sort of horrible disease that's been gestating in my system for eight months and has finally burst like a hideous pustule, flooding my veins in vileness and sickness and blood-rejectability?

Worse, what if I get so dehydrated or hypoglycemic that something awful happens?

Almost as bad, what if the people at the Cleveland blood bank are a bunch of incompetent nincompoops and do something awful like fuck up the blood-draw and end up causing the blood to spill over under my skin? I've heard that can happen. Leaves your entire arm bruised for quite a while--like weeks.
