Andrei in the office

25 or 6 to 4

Congestion at about 30%.. My nose is doing that stunning ballet where one nostril is absolutely clear and the other is hermetically sealed. It's a ballet because at a moment's notice, the one nostril will pick the other up for a lovely grande jete and then they will switch roles.

The body aches are also down to about 10 %. It could just be a good moment in my back cycle.

The downside is that despite NyQuil I am wide awake. Ahh, yes. The Nighttime sniffling, sneezing, why the f*$& am I staring at the bedroom ceiling medicine.

In other news, yes, LJ has gotten all tagified. Yay. I can post things now and label them in advance. Eventually, these tags will probably form a system of filtering for the reader. For now.... just more meta data.

Granted, I know this change has sent fraserspeirs off to see what hackery he can do to XJournal.

Tags part 1, Blog Irresponsibility....

I am going back through old posts and tagging them. (Suddenly I feel like a gang-banger, marking my territory)

While going through them, I'm finding a rather lengthy list of, "Dangling" posts. Stuff that I said I'd follow up on, unanswered trivia, just general blog irresponsibility.

So, I will be trying to tie up old posts as I move backwards tagging them.

MEMETime: Catchup TV Character meme

Edit: Fixeed(sic) spellings. I love having a pedantic editor in the house ;)

So, this one was originally posted on April 6th. So, That would put the age on finishing this post at about 71 days. (I can't wait to see how old other dangling posts wind up being)

The post went like this:
1. Post a list of ten TV shows or fandoms you follow (current or cancelled).
2. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show.
3. When guessed, bold the line and write a sentence about why you like the character.
4. Post in your own LiveJournal.

My List:
1. Doctor Who (Mwa ha ha)
2. Babylon 5
3. Firefly (two answers)
4. M.A.S.H.
5. Wonderfalls
6. Red Dwarf
7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
8. Family Guy
9. You Can't Do That on Television
And, for the final challenge:
10. Space Academy

Tagging, Part deux

Well, healthwise I'm up to about 75-80%. I can tell because I made breakfast. Well, I assisted with Breakfast.

I spent the morning tagging posts. I have gone back 80 posts. Finishing 2 of which that were dangling. I can't go back further because LJ seems to no longer like the idea of:


I will do it from the month view as time permits.

Since I have no sense of self organization, I currently have 67 different tags. I tend to use 3-4 tags on average per post, I know one had 7 tags.

My current top ten tags are behind the cut

Teeny rumbler

Sitting at my office desk catching up on paperwork. The room rumbled a bit. I walked over to jnanacandra, "Okay, that was an earthquake."

It really was minor here. This is primarily because we're on a mountain road. It's not a big mountain, but it's definitely enough to buffer some of the shock. Basically people at the bottom of the hill probably felt about 3-3.5, we got about 1.5-2.

With Anza's quake at the beginning of the week and this one, it would seem that we have a very unhappy fault line.

Andrei in a nutshell: The nectarine

To truly understand Andrei, you have to understand how much 70's pop TV knowledge is crammed in his head.

jnanacandra walked in the bedroom eating some fruit.

"Peach?" I asked
"Nectarine..." she replied.

I promptly went into a high pitched voice,
"I'll pick the nectarine and throw it down to you"

She looked at me puzzled.

"I suppose there's little use trying to explain the Koozbanian Geefle and Gonk."

I have since attempted to explain.

Gonk: "Let's call it 'cooperation.'"
Geefle: "No... let's call it, 'Shirley.'"

Note: no images are to be found via google at all. Score!

Maybe I should just boycott India

Got a phone call this afternoon asking me to take a survey on my pizza delivery from yesterday. Annoyingly, the caller spoke some of the worst broken English I've dealt with. The accent was most assuredly Hindu/Indian in origin.

She was calling on behalf of a survey company purchased by the Pizza dealer. Yet, was unfamiliar with the product line.

I really wish there was a way to detect, "Yes, this person is in India" and terminate the call.

This gives me a chance to display my new icon (at least the first stab at it)...

I call it Bunnythwump.

I've wanted this icon for a while. The moment I saw the video, I had to eventually make the icon.

I painstakingly made it by hand by taking frame-by-frame pictures of a quicktime movie of the flash movie "Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me." - If you haven't seen this work already, go view it at the previous link. If you have seen it.... Go watch again. Then look at other animation by Bernard Derriman at his website Squetch.

That is all for now. And yes Virginia, there is a 9-post-in-a-day-Andrei.
