I pander to the masses.
Current Mood: cranky cranky
Three people have asked me for an update. Today. So, well. Here I am. ;P Also, the neighbors woke me up with their loud music again. I guess we'll start out with the funniest thing to happen to me since I last updated.

My mother asks me, oh so hesitantly. "Jeff. I know you're into BDSM." (anything that starts with this sentence is bound to be funny.) I'm fiddling with something my grandma has asked me to do. I merely nod, wondering where the hell this is going. "God I can't believe I'm having this conversation." She adds unnecessarily. "I know ma. Get to the point." She then asks. "Well, for RP, I need a dungeon layout. I don't suppose you have anything generic but useful lying about." -blink- "Can't say as I do ma. You're an imaginative girl though, I'm sure you can think up something sufficiently demented. And ma? I've -used- the for RP excuse before. That's like saying 'my dog ate my homework', try again. Grandpa won't let you turn the spare bedroom into a dungeon." I snicker. She looks amused/guilty and says, "It is tho." and flounces off. Well. Maybe that last part is my impression of what she did, and not an actual accounting. But nonetheless. Still funny as hell.

Haven't had to mow my g'rents lawn since last post. Stupid non-rain icky heat keeping the grass down..erm. Maybe not stupid. Glad for it am I! I've also killed 12 mice and counting since last week sometime when I finally got tired of rustling and I figured out where the little buggers were feeding their family. Turns out they like ramen. No sweat off my back, I guess. I think there's still at least one more, but it's obviously the smart one.

I've seen Fantastic Four (Wee, he said, "It's clobbering time!") and War of the Worlds (creepy but very good) as well since then. Other movies I want to see that are coming out soon are Cinderella Man (okay this already came out) and Wedding Crashers (well want to see is a strong word. It looks amusing). I suppose I'll have to see Chocolate factory, but I have little interest. It didn't do it for me as a kid, and the trailers merely make me go, 'Enh. Depp is -so- gender ambiguous.' Who knows, the movie reimagine might actually excite me.

In entertainment news, the guy who played Pete Thorton from Mcgyver, Dana Elcar, died. Very sad, cause I liked him. :( Also, the voice over actor of Tigger died. "The wonderful thing about Tiggers is...I'm the only one." Thank you both for giving me good times as a child, and may your next lives reap the joy you caused in this one.

For the first time in weeks, I got work caught up last night! I promise that this means there'll be a lot for me to do today cause no way would day shift actually do their job and keep up with it. :P

Also, I've come to realize that I can't trust some people as much as I thought I could. It's really kind sad cause I'm already uberlonely. When all you have to do is think, enh. It wears on you. Need to actually stop having a pity party and spend some time cleaning. But cleaning is boring doing it alone. That's probably one reason it hasn't gotten done, is at least now I have something that'll perpetually keep me non-bored. On the other hand, dreading even the thought of someone showing up at my apt is probably not a good thing either. While I'm putting things on the list of shit I should do, how about find a time I can go to a gym. ;P

[little girl:]"You know what they say..." [mom:]"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?" [little girl:]"I was gonna say life sucks, and then you die. But I like yours better."

Kid voice: "Awww nice story daddy, read it again!" "Wanna hear a story kid? Your mom used to be hot, could put her legs behind her head. Now look at her! -sound of beer being cracked open- Might as well start you early, here you go son." Adult voice: "Thanks Dad."

"War of the Worlds" is rated PG-13. Much of the earth's population is wiped out, leaving very little time for sex or bad language.

Thank you much for the soup recipe. Once it's appropriate weather I'll see fit to make batches upon batches. Some weekend you should head down here. We'll play Catan, have soup. La!
daimones From: daimones Date: July 12th, 2005 01:51 am (UTC) (Link)
No problem. The best part is that the recipe scales. Make a bowl for yourself, make some for 20 people...make some for 10, but only eat half, leave leftovers to simmer, come back later.

I love peasant food. so practical.

Meh. Maybe she can repost it. :)

uberlonely ...that's not good

but... *laughs* your mom asked to borrow your sex-toys? ("for RP"? - that's Role Playing, right?), at least twas you mother, and not one of your grandparents, eh?

I am going to start keeping score from the sidelines (this links list = 2 points for me)
From: (Anonymous) Date: July 12th, 2005 09:17 am (UTC) (Link)

Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

My grandparents aren't even likely to know what the letters BDSM stand for. I'm so willing to bet on that,in fact, I'd ask them straight up. :P

She just wanted a layout, thankfully, not toys. Floorplan like stuff.

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

That is me. From work. Cause i'm being a maverick.
bemocked From: bemocked Date: July 12th, 2005 10:33 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

first the BDSM and now this... you do live on the wild side!

B&D, D&S... i can definitely appreciate creative playful fun, but I dunno about the S&M part - but to each his own

(well, Maveric, i'm slightly tempted to quote from TopGun here, but I'll restrain myself...
daimones From: daimones Date: July 12th, 2005 11:30 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

Flavours of kink, really. Though not even necessarily kink. For some they are lifestyle choices.

I like TopGun. *adds that to the list of movies he should someday own*
bemocked From: bemocked Date: July 12th, 2005 11:42 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

my experiences push me to distinctly separate/segregate the S&M part from the rest - but my opinion is filtered/shaded by my experiences...
bemocked From: bemocked Date: July 12th, 2005 10:35 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

layout? ...and What wasn't meant to be? I hate to be dense, but i don't get it?

really, you don't need to ask the g'rents to prove a point.... REALLY!

daimones From: daimones Date: July 12th, 2005 11:28 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

Subject refers to uberlonely not being good.

Layout. You know. Whips over here, rack over there, floor length mirror there, pulley over there..

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

*raised eyebrows*

you are describing your playroom? or speaking notionally?
daimones From: daimones Date: July 12th, 2005 11:44 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Well, no, it wasn't meant to be. :)

I only wish I had one. So it must be notionally.

ooooo! pretty flowers!

Danke danke. :)

By the way, if you want Master of the Universe figures, my brother has some he's been trying to sell. & Castle Grayskull (the original one not the scary new one). :P

Re: ooooo! pretty flowers!

I think Lego's are enough of my boyhood days anymore. Only have so much shelf space. :)
hisdaffodil From: hisdaffodil Date: July 12th, 2005 11:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Well I just happen to be in the process of building shelving, should I make extra for you? :)

Or just send you one of my demon kitties to work on your mice?

Wish my yard would not need mowing. *eyes it woefully* I gotta get out there tomorrow and use that monster machine I bought him. And the little whacky thingy. I'll call ya from the hospital! :)

I really think that if my mom came and asked me about BDSM... well, the first thing I'd do is stare.. then I'd definitely run away, cause that thing's an alien. there ain't no way that's me mum!

This was such a fun post! I think I enjoyed the comments (and replies) as much as the entry itself! ahhh - early morning smiles!
