|10:32 am - Sure, when I have no time...|
... there is burgeoning wank in the #setlock tag on twitter and tumblr. Posting here in case anyone wants to go digging. There be spoilers, in case you're concerned about such.

|09:28 pm - My new least-favorite euphamism|
When can I expect "showing [one's] ass" to go the fuck away in re: privilege? Because not only is it annoying, but people are using it to refer to any -ism, anywhere, which makes it EVEN HARDER to talk about privilege by lumping it in with outright jackassery. The cutesy metaphor is NOT WORKING. >:-(
In related news, I am crabby.

You guys are awesome. It's only 9:30 in the morning here, and my flist is full of turtles. Made my day, it did.
I love you all!

|12:09 pm - People are Mean on the Internets!!!|
I have no idea how to report a wank on Ravelry (myspace for knitters), so I'll just post this so my friends can laugh with me.
Magknits, an online knitting magazine, shut down this week with no warning to readers or to designers whose work was posted there. over at Ravelry the forums light up with both support and indignation, including:
Those who can't believe people would find entertainment is watching something crash and burn:
"Hear hear. I can not beleive [sic] some of what I am reading on these posts. The people who say that they are drawn to it because it is such fun/entertaining/car crash tv. Honestly? Go knit people or whatever you do."
Those who can't believe people would be so rude as to criticize people on the interwebs:
"I have read a good many posts on this subject and many ravelry users totally sicken me with their complete lack of decent behavior."
Those who defend the criticizers, and attempt to Shed New Light:
"People are posting on here about poor Kerrie taking a bashing and criticism etc.
What about the designers here? Kerrie has pulled Magknits without communicating with anyone affected by it or giving them time to react and give their imput. Wasnt that the fundamental flaw which started all of this - lack of communication and consideration for designers and customers?
All of this stuff on Ravelry has been in response to months and even years of ignoring customers complaints, not rectifying problems, no communication etc. How is this NOT the fault of Kerrie?"
There are Shady Business Practices, possibly perpetrated by some Really Very Lovely People. If you have a Rav account, check out the needlework on the web forum. If you would like a Rav account, joining is free, just sign up and you'll get your account in a couple of days.

how many times can I ask what kind of motherfucking moron this person is before I'm being unduly mean? Because with a name like QUASI_Haley, s/h/it really expects us to think it's not a sock. The hell? Quasi is not an obscure word. It's like using HI I'M A SOCK PUPPET as your title.

Is anyone else finding LJ's servers particularly robust today? Did the internets explode while I wasn't looking?

Hey you guys!!!!!
"I'm not a survivor, but I am holier-than-thou enough to tell you (over and over) that Rape isn't Funny. Not even with LOL Cats."
Seriously, these folks need as much laughing at as possible.
ETA: A good start on the laughing has been made over at Randy's journal.

|04:52 pm - That SPN Misogyny Wank|
Where in the hell did all of the stupid fuckers come from? There are names I have never seen before coming from all sides to bring the wank inside the house.
Also? Who the hell gets this pissed off about drinking if a person isn't driving, isn't nearly dead, and isn't their own child? Is there a massive serial-pisser defiling the cornflakes of SPN fandom? These are the burning questions I am left with, random newbs, and they're making me cranky. Cranky Turtle will snap on your tl;dr asses.
Also, how is it I've been around FW this damn long and still don't have a boobies icon?

Am without working internets at home! This makes me sad, as I cannot icon the two headed tiny turtle. Anyone willing to make me a "confused" icon out of it? I'll totally be your BFF.

|05:25 pm - I'm slacking on the wanking|
The only thing I've gotten out of the whole "f_w is evol" thing is vague sadness that I don't have time to make an icon of Dita von whatever with a tiny turtle head.
This is what moving house does to your internet time wasting abilities. :o(

|09:59 pm - It's all about meme.|
1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favourite lyric to your current favourite song. Or your favourite kind of sandwich. Or your favourite breed of tropical fish/kind of bug/breed of dog. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your JF with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions

There's knitting wankery somewhere. I'm at work and can't hunt it down. What's a girl to do?

I still love you all more than any other imaginary people who live in my computer!
(Why yes, I have been feeling nostalgic. I was trying to remember which wank this fantastic pwnage was a part of, and realized CrystalWank was almost three years ago.)

I spent three hours at a funeral home planning my grandmother's funeral today, and yet this has me laughing fit to burst.

Some shithead posted Dan Radcliffe to scans_daily. Wank ensued upon command. Shooting fish in a bucket never looked so easy. I was pissed off beyond all belief at RL ass haberdashery, forgot to save. Was it at all entertaining?

Also, people being wanky about penguins in sweaters. Not wanky enough to report, though, as they are vastly outdone by the Penguins in Sweaters!
