Ahhh, sweet, sweet internet. Our cable went "pbpbtpbtpbt!*DEAD*" and as such, my computer sat alone and unloved for quite some time because I had very few non-internet things to do. It did not help that TWICE when the cable guy said he would come out to fix it, he did not. I remain convinced that my psychic powers compelled him to approach our house and give me my damned internet fix. I read snippets of the flist here and there at work and such when I could. To those whose birthdays I missed (off the top of my head I recall crotalus_atrox and nuriko8, though there may well be others), I wish you a belated happy birthday. And since that day has already passed, I wish you a happy Today.

My mother would like it known that the cat has apologized for his foul language. She maintains that it was the cat who cursed, and that she is innocent.
... and now she is standing over him as he meows (he wants out) saying "Stop saying that! Stop saying those words!"
I love my mom. I question her sanity, too. :D

Speaking of which, she and my father were going to attend a dinner('Education Program for Health Care Professionals only') tonight. They get there, the room is empty. Eventually, people start filing in, people my mom doesn't recognize. So she does the first thing that comes naturally - she says "Hi, I'm the hostess" and begins chatting.
Mom: So suddenly it dawns on us that we are in a room full of psychiatrists. Not where we needed to be.
Me: Oh, no, mom, I think a roomful of psychiatrists is exactly where you need to be...
They still do not know if they had the wrong room, the wrong restaurant, or what... but Mom was entertaining and Dad was educational, so they earned their dinner. And afterwards, Dad turns to Mom and says "You know, we could do this every night. Show up at a different restaurant, find out if they have a physician's meeting there that night..."
Only my mother could become the life of a party - a party full of psychiatrists - that she was not invited to.

We cannot help laughing at my father. He says "chipotle" (chih-POTE-lay) as "chip-POTT-ill". This would be a lot less funny if Spanish was not his first language.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Date you joined: 25th of June, 2001

Number of journal entries: 2,393. Chatty.

Number of people on your friends list: 267 friends/ friend of 235.

Person who introduced you to LJ: driftingfocus! We met at summer school. I noticed the Kenshin decal on the back of her car, she noticed the Vampire Hunter D decal on mine. These are the signs geeks use to attract pack members and mates in the wild.

Still friends with this person: Yep.

How many people have you introduced to LJ: At least four or five, though several rarely use their journals and at least two have defected to other journal sites (TRAITORS! They will walk the plank for annoying me by forcing me to read more than one site to communicate with them).

List everyone on your friends list who you have met in person: In alphabetical order: _phlox, driftingfocus, bammer, become_a_robot, broken_bokken, carrick1308, dontbeatme, emperor_boy, feyr, jenndolari, jessiesparkgrrl, jester4389, luminance, master381, my_left_toe, neonid, neron, nuriko8, orochimike, pegasus_, plaidcat (I think. My brain is fuzzy on this), psytoasty, saintevermore, scorpio9574, takethemoneyrun, uchuunoyanushi (If she is indeed who my brain insists that she is, though I am fuzzy on this as well. I do not know why my brain is indecisive on this...), victory_radio. 14 of those through school or school-related activities, four met in person after meeting them online, one met through church, one met through another person on this list, four are family-journals.

Anyone on LJ you can't stand: I generally avoid reading their journals.

Name one person on your friends list you would most like to meet: At the moment, ramaxela, as I owe him so many beatings with the trout that I have lost count. And because I want to go to Canada.

Ever ban someone from commenting in your journal: Nope. Never had to, I rarely stray into overly-controversial territory and I rdo not draw enough attention to myself in other communities that I'd attract trolls.

Biggest pet peeve about LJ: Trolls, I 'spose. I just cannot grasp how trolling could be fun. I do not get it.

Do you feel close to most of the people on your friends list: Yes. Oddly enough, I had to go over the list of flist people I have met in person twice to catch the ones who I felt close to, but who I had not actually met. There are also a number of people I could meet up with but have not for various reasons, most involving my discomfort with social activity.

How many journals on Live Journal do you have:
- This one
- One private journal
- One whose fate I have not decided (was going to be a character journal, but I am still debating)
- Two communities - geekstalkers, which is very slow/dead and will be until shada.org goes back up and I bother to upload the CSI pictures I have been hoarding. Mmmm, CSIgeeks. Also bravostuff, which will be swamped with pictures once I bother to hook up my scanner. Scratch that, once I find my scanner. Looking at my desk, it has moved. Crap. It is off burnscanninating the countryside. SCANNER RAMPAGE!

If I forgot someone who I have actually met, I am sorry. This means I have not seen you recently enough to still associate your physical person with the words on my screen. Feel free to come to my house and hit me.
