Harper SMASH!

Well, today's edition of "Find Chigbo a Job" has gone less well than it could have. Things are really beginning to dry up, it looks like: at least, in the sorts of jobs that I can actually do over the summer. Still, we'll see what comes up. Something should. Eventually.

Still, I've been productive today, what with cleaning and chiores and such. Should really do my laundry tonight - all I need is a bit of memory and a bit of will.

Who needs reality TV when political discussion shows give me my daily quota of asshattery? With Gay Marriage Week coming up in Parliament (admittedly preferable to the Gay Marriage Season I had predicted back in spring), perhaps some of our esteemed leaders should take a look at this examination of the effects of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's wildcat approval of gay marriage licenses back in March.

And the rest of you should read it just because it's bloody hilarious.

Kittenbreak.com is eating my soul.

My mother has been on the phone with her fiance (who hasn't visited since the first time, and who I don't happen to like any more than I did then.). All afternoon. And she killed the battery in the cordless phone despite having a phone next to her bed bought for this express purpose. And then picked a fight with me two minutes after she came out, because I hadn't taken the initiative and made dinner during her abduction, despite not being hungry, and her telling me to do the dishes and take out the chicken so she could make dinner. (admittedly, this was before the Phone Conversation Of Doom)

Am I going mad, or is anyone else as befuddled by this logic as I am?

How much do you write??

Wait, when did I write an 1800 word public entry? That seems bizarrely long even for me. And now I am curious.

Your Scorpio Drinking Style

If anyone tells you you've had enough, you'll smirk and keep tippling until you're hog whimpering drunk, out of 100-proof spite.
You like to drink, and screw anyone who has a problem with that.
You see the sauce as something to savor in itself... and not as a personality-altering tool.

If you're depressed, you get self-loathing and seek total obliteration.
But generally, you're a fascinating drinking pal, brilliant conversationalist and dizzying flirt.
You also remember everything -- especially what everyone did when they were blitzed.
Only people you *like* should drink with you!
Your Signature Cocktails
Just as you can look someone in the eye and smile while secretly plotting their demise, so does the brandy-laced Scorpian Stinger's sweet taste hide a potent amount of alcohol. But you abhor tropical drinks, and you will turn up your nose if you're served a scorpian. You rule watermelon, so breaking out a pitcher of watermelon margaritas will seduce you -- though red wine will do the trick just as well.
Your Celebrity Drinking Buddies
Hillary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bill Gates, Demi Moore, Jenny McCarthy, Tara Reid, P. Diddy, and Owen Wilson.

I think that the first portion is a lot more accurate than the second, though admittedly I don't really drink enough yet to have a signature cocktail. ;) However, I vastly prefer white wine to red, for some bizarre reason.

Your Slanguage Profile

British Slang: 75%
Canadian Slang: 75%
Aussie Slang: 25%
Prison Slang: 25%
Victorian Slang: 25%
New England Slang: 0%
Southern Slang: 0%

So I'm an Anglophile. Is that such a bad thing? *laughs*

The True You

You want your girlfriend or boyfriend to be more relaxed, calm, and composed.
With respect to money, you spend as little as possible.
You think good luck might come your way, but if it does you'll be so surprised you'll burst out laughing.
The hidden side of your personality tends to be satisfied to care for things with a minimal amount of effort.
You are tend to think about others' feelings a lot, perhaps because you are so eager to be liked.
When it comes to finding a romantic partner, you base your search on information from your friends.

Eerily accurate, actually, except perhaps for the last one.

You are dignified, spiritual, and wise.
Always unsatisfied, you constantly try to better yourself.
You are also a seeker of knowledge and often buried in books.

You tend to be philosophical, looking for the big picture in life.
You dream of inner peace for yourself, your friends, and the world.
A good friend, you always give of yourself first.

You are elegant, withdrawn, and brilliant.
Your mind is a weapon, able to solve any puzzle.
You are also great at poking holes in arguments and common beliefs.

For you, comfort and calm are very important.
You tend to thrive on your own and shrug off most affection.
You prefer to protect your emotions and stay strong.

I couldn't pick between these two, actually, so I took both. There's plenty to describe me in both of them, actually, so I consider it a well chosen course of action. :)

That is all. More, later, I am sure.

Better than a break
What's even better than a kitten break, you ask?

A kitten war!
