Oh, Young are not for the faint of heart. )

Canadians make me horny )

Also saw that the cable network "Logo" is going to do a television special based on the "It Gets Better" campaign. I had colleagues that wrote an article about that for a journal. I wonder if they know about it? I wonder if I'm motivated enough to bother telling them? (The team is lead by a guy I'm not crazy about.)

Chibi Ninjas kick much of the ass... )

Also, I need to block myself from Seriously - I need a child filter-type thing. Bad girl! *wrist slap* Go do your work!

I think I need to plan my future so that I live in a place with days of the same length all year 'round. I start trying to hibernate when the days get shorter.

So. Flex Spending Accounts are awesome. Once again, having set aside that tax-free money is going to save my bacon at the end of the month when it comes to reimburse me for expenses. I still haven't figured out how I can get my credit cards to do something like that...

Some things are good. Teaching is good. My students are a-maze-ing. I'm glad that my one colleague is on sabbatical for the entire year because my life at work is happier as a result. My dissertation progress is moving ahead. I have TV and internet at the house again which is fantastic! I have a paycheck again which is fan-fucking-tastic.

Some things are bad. My first reader walked off my dissertation committee. My house still hasn't sold which means I have to keep talking to my ex-husband who sucks. Not a lot of jobs looing good out there yet. My adviser is taking his slow sweet time getting dissertation comments back to me on chapters.

I'd say the balance is really on the tip to the positive.

...a dissertation sucks. Perhaps it will be done soon.

Just watched episode 1 of YOUNG JUSTICE. In order to make Robin useful, he's now a hacker more than a martial artist. Ok, that's cool. (I mean, Sherlock Holmes was re-styled into the world's first MMA fighter for the Robert Downey Jr. flick, so I won't object to this.) But, when they had Robin's hacking program use little "Robin Heads" I couldn't stop myself from shaking my noggin' and waggin' my finger. "uh, uh, uh! Copying from Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV for the funny/cute factor without due credit is tacky." And then I thought, no, wait. I'd also have to scold for an reference error to the Laughing Man, as well. Then, aw hell. There really isn't anything going on because this whole thing is stupid and nit-picky, and I'm just trying to flatter myself because I enjoyed noticing the similarity of cute "heads" as computer icons.

Wait a minute. Now, I'm wondering how many of these I can find... This could be kind of fun.

I was a naughty spawn. I figured out that I could purchase seasons of the animation that I wanted to watch through iTunes. I should not have done it. It was so very wrong. I gave a half-hearted effort to find them either legally or illegally for free. And then I clicked the button. And my credit card looked at my like my icon.

I realized that I am suffering from a dire need to see every episode of TEEN TITANS and YOUNG JUSTICE in order from the beginning, but I am without a reliable mechanism by which to accomplish this task. Then, almost simultaneously, I realized that I am 39. And I felt a tiny twinge of shame and despair.

I'm supposed to have children that want that stuff, right? Well, no wonder I am not attractive to the opposite sex. I am still watching cartoons with enough seriousness to want to watch episodes in order from the beginning. (And this was all before I realized that I hadn't included THE BATMAN, and BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, or any of those JUSTICE LEAGUE incarnations on my list.)


In all honesty, I suspect that the reason most adults have children is that they still want to watch cartoons but they also want to have lots and lots of unprotected sex in between episodes. Children are both cause and effect, and sort of make all of that work out.

I don't need another one. I have a livejournal (again) even though I never use it. I have a blog on blogspot. I have a tumblr. I even have an ancient pitas account. I guess because I saw a friend with one. It's like a rash...only I didn't catch the rash...I *am the rash. I spread, but I'm more like a symptom of something kind of icky and concerning.
