Greetings from my new time-wasting palace!
I know I promised a real update, but that may take longer than I thought. Boy X got me a copy of Baldur's Gate II, Shadows of Amn, which I have never played before.
I anticipate this eating quite a bit of my time, so sorry if I'm not around for a few days. Anyone here ever played this?

Ok, i've been away for a few days...did I miss anything good? And by good I mean wanky or entertaining? I'm trying to catch up, but I've been reading the comments on this
entry in sf_d and doing a lot of thinking instead. I've come to realize that my last boyfriend was a typical "Nice Guy"™ in a lot of ways. And I'm sort of really ashamed that it took me so long to figure it out. He did have his good qualities too, don't get me wrong. It's just that in the end, the bad outweighed the good, and I couldn't take it anymore.
But enough about him. I actually meant to post about the awesome weekend I just spent with Boy X. And we didn't actually do
anything. Aside from one small shopping trip, we never left his apartment. LOLLOLLOLOLOL GET YOUR MINDS OUT OF THE GUTTER.
Boy x is a show-pusher. By this, I mean he will start a marathon watching of some show that I have never really paid attention to before, but by the time we've watched an entire season together I'm hooked. He did this with Weeds, by watching all of season 3 with me. So of course when I got home I had to watch season 1, etc. Thank christ for the internet.
So yeah, we spent this weekend watching all of Heros, season two
. >:( Two, goddamnit. Now I am hooked. So I turn to you f-list, in the hopes that you
read this entire tl;dr entry
can hook me up (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, MEMERS
>:D). I need to watch the rest of this show like burning now. But I would prefer not having to download it if possible. Is there somewhere on line that I can watch it streaming? Hulu, or Tudou, or one of those? Halp?

Candied bacon martinis
6 ounces premium vodka
4 ounces Applejack brandy
2 ounces amaretto liqueur
2 ounces maple syrup, preferably grade "B"
4 thin slices tart apple, such as Granny Smith
2 slices candied bacon, halved crosswise
Chill 4 martini glasses. In a large cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, brandy, amaretto and maple syrup with ice. Shake until combined and chilled. Strain the cocktail into the 4 chilled glasses and garnish each with an apple slice and half a slice of candied bacon. Serve immediately.Candied bacon
8 slices smoked bacon
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, shiny side up. Dredge the bacon on both sides in the brown sugar and arrange the slices so they do not touch on the sheet. Bake until the bacon is richly caramelized, 15 to 25 minutes. Use a pair of tongs to transfer the bacon strips to a cooling rack and allow the excess fat to drain. Serve warm as candy or cool until hardened for the martinis.

|Never sleeping again...
I have been up all night reading the comments on this entry in sf_drama
and perusing the pictures found here.sf_drama
will be doing another ghost tales thread for Halloween, and I'm looking forward to being kept awake again.
I am the worlds biggest skeptic, and will always look for ways to logically explain away the 'unexplainable'. And most of the time it's pretty easy to debunk whatever it is you think you just saw. That said, I admit that do believe in ghosts. Because I've seen them myself.
Back when I was a stupid goth teenie, my friends and I would regularly go 'ghost watching' in one of the cemeteries near here. At first, while I sensed we were not alone, I didn't see anything. But after a while, I would start seeing things out of the corner of my eye (the same way you're supposed to be able to see fairies, or so I'm told). It took some practice to get the hang of looking without looking. And when I did get the hang of it, I would usually see orbs. You know, those balls of light that are usually only captured on film but not usually seen with the naked eye? Yeah, those. I've only rarely seen apparitions of a figure, but it has happened. And I don't doubt at all what I was seeing. Mostly because I was stone cold sober when I would see them. I learned early on in my watching experience that I would see more things sober than I would if I was messed up. I can do it if I've been drinking (not drunk, lol) but it was harder. Like there was a fog inside my head that I was working through. And if I'd been smoking (not talking about cigarettes here) I don't see anything at all. I sometimes wonder if that's part of the reason I became such a confirmed pothead in the first place.
After reading some of the experiences of the people in sf_drama, I am glad that the house I live in is not haunted. It's built on what would be flood plain if they hadn't encased the San Gabriel river in cement back in the 40's. Grandma says that before our house was built here the area was a bean field. I suspect that it's always been used for agriculture or cattle grazing, because most people aren't stupid enough to build permanent dwellings on land that would routinely flood every few years. I've never felt anything 'ghosty' from this house, or in this neighborhood. Of course, with habitation that could change, but I'm content knowing that I won't be seeing things out of the corner of my eye in the place where I live.

|I think I'm in love
. Because he says this way better than I ever could. Every so often, one of the McCain/GOP crowd look at me funny and ask "Why would you vote for him?"
Because Barack Obama doesn't point at John McCain's obvious age, his white-bread, spoon-fed privileged bullshit and say "Man, a guy of HIS race and upbringing must be DANGEROUS!"
Because Obama has kept his side of the debates 99% CLEAN.
Because Obama's campaign didn't stage a motherfucking attack on one of their workers and blame "some white guy" in hopes that it would turn the tide.
Because Obama doesn't call McCain a terrist, even though the fuckhead supported our invasion of a sovereign nation that hadn't performed act one of aggression against us.
Because Obama doesn't wink at the camera like a fucking trollop cheerleader at a pep rally.
Because Obama doesn't stutter, use words like "nuke-ya-lurrrrr" or act like your average white house DOUCHEBAG.
And mostly because I beilieve that the time has come for us to have another eloquent, intelligent, well-spoken President who I would be proud to claim as our leader.
This whole thing with the "attack" on Ashley Todd is a case in point of the fucking horrible bullshit the Right Wing loves foisting on American citizens. By Any Means Necessary, they'll steal the fucking reins and continue the HORRIBLE FUCKING PATH this country has been on for eight years.
I remember a time when we thought the office of President meant Nobility. Not in some outdated bullshit fashion, but in the idea that the President should be Noble.
McCain and his campaign are a bunch of twisted, sick, fucked-up scum who would make up a story fomenting racism in order to win the prize.
They're thieves and pieces of shit.
I vote Obama because I am sick and fucking tired of this country being led by people I wouldn't spit on if they were on fire, let alone people like John McCain, who seems to have learned plenty of lessons from his defeat in 2000.
I vote Obama because it's time to demand better principles from our leaders.
I vote Obama because we've been wallowing in this shit-pit for too long. It's time to rise above.CHECK THIS OUT. SPREAD THIS LINK! IF I WASN'T AN OBAMA SUPPORTER ALREADY I WOULD BE AFTER READING THIS.John McCain's Pennsylvania communications director told reporters in the state an incendiary version of the hoax story about the attack on a McCain volunteer well before the facts of the case were known or established -- and even told reporters outright that the "B" carved into the victim's cheek stood for "Barack," according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions

Can those of you here who are also on my Live Journal f-list do me a favor? I've just been informed that none of my recent LJ entries are showing up on people's friends list. Can you check to see if they appear on your list and let me know? My latest LJ entry was just posted yesterday. I was wondering why my LJ seemed so quiet lately.
p.s. I've opened a LJ support request already. Hopefully this will be something they can fix easily.

OMG BROKEN PIPE KITCHEN AND GARAGE FLOODED :(
THIS IS NOT HOW I PICTURED MY SATURDAY NIGHT GOING.
ETA: What a mess :( Cleanup will take some time, and plumber is due first thing in the morning. Of course, because it's Sunday, he's going to charge us a stupid amount of money.
I have to figure out how i'm going to move the refridgerator and stove away from the walls so I can get to any water back there. And then I get to clean the garage. It needs it, but we're talking one hell of a project. At least now I'll be able to get to my bicyle.

|WAR KITTENS?!? Ferocious Attack Kitten
Date: 2008-06-02, 7:10PM CDT
Ferocious attack kitten is available for adoption to any home willing to accept him.
This destructive kitty has been trained as a proud warrior and will fiercely defend your house, even against you. Well-trained since 10-weeks of age to attack anything in his presence, he will protect your family from evil things, including the following:
* other trained attack kittens
* toilet paper
* anything under a blanket
* unwanted house guests
* paper bags
* floor rugs
* Chuck Norris
Great with children (assuming you don’t like the children). Probably best used for professional catfighting. He is housebroken, but only because he wants to be. This attack cat has trained himself to seek out his food anywhere you hide it and rip the bag open to feed himself, great for those who travel extensively. Also trained to drink water out of toilet bowls and dishwater from items in the sink. Knows how to open some doors. He will find you wherever you hide.
Neutered (trust me, you wont want to him to procreate). Has not been declawed, but you'll figure that out really fast.
Understands and responds to a variety of vulgar and profane verbal commands. Has a very soft and furry belly, like a teddy bear - however he will bite your face if you try to touch it.
Willing to accept trades. Potential adopters must have experience with trained attack-kittens... please be prepared to show scars.
For the love of God, someone please take this thing out of my house.

|Because Chuck Norris would kick zombie ass
ZOMBIE MEME!You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.
* Weapon can be real or fictional; you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.
1. I toyed with the idea of a light saber, but I really don't want to get that close. Therefore I am going with a sawed off shotgun, maybe a twelve gauge. Sawed off for those tight interior hall corners, and enough stopping power to make a head explode. Hmmm...better get some ear plugs too.
2. I thought about this long and hard. Problem is, my taste in music changes with my mood, so what seems right now probably won't when I think about it tomorrow. But right now I'm thinking Shoot to Thrill by AC/DC would sound pretty good.
3. Chuck Norris. Duh.

|I have a problem with the LJ election
Why won't legomymalfoy
talk to the people she's supposed to be representing?
And why, when I attempt to ask her this very question in her LJ, am I banned? I was not rude. I was not inflammatory. I did not rant, rave, or try to insult. I simply asked her why she was making it so difficult for her constituancy to reach her.
Yeah, banning is a sensible response to that sort of behavior.
