That if you liken your friend to Fran Katzenjammer often enough, sooner or later you'll find that she's actually started to become Fran Katzenjammer.

So. tl;dr, Richard Brook was on the Sherlock Universe's equivalent of Casualty, apparently. They call it Emergency, but it's pretty blatantly Casualty. And I, being me, have come up with a story line for his character and the circumstances under which his character was written out of the show. Which is basically a gender-swapped version of what they did to Lara (defended himself against his nasty boyfriend and went to prison for attempted murder, basically).

I was explaining this, and as a result the madness that is Casualty to Mike and BB, and then:

[08:38] bb: why
[08:39] bb: why do you like it?
[08:39] ~JumperFkr: Because it's the epitome of Murphy's Law
[08:39] ~JumperFkr: It's also kind of fun to try to predict which characters will get killed off/put on a bus/whatever
[08:41] streamfjord: ...I sort of want to read fixit for Brook on Emergency now
[08:41] streamfjord: wtf.
[08:41] ~JumperFk: hahaha I... win?


So, yeah. For the hell of it, I may write some meta-tastic Emergency fixit fic for Dr Brian Stokes.

So, I'm in the bath, as I tend to be. With my candles and watching Pete's Dragon on my phone. Because, you know, Pete's Dragon is awesome, stfu.

But the problem with watching things on my phone is that my phone gets text messages sometimes. And when it gets text messages, a Dalek screams "EXTERMINATE" at me. And I'm a jumpy, twitchy mofo at the best of times. I don't expect to be exterminated by a Dalek when I'm watching Disney movies on my phone in the bath.

So when it did happen, I had a massive flail. And knocked my candles into the bath. Hot wax everywhere, ruined the candles. General suckitude.



Bet you didn't see that coming, did you? Yeah, neither did I.

I like to read the announcements that sites like LJ and DW send out via email. I like to know what's going on with companies I give money to (although LJ is no longer one of them), and especially like to know how those companies are spending my money.

This past month's increase in income has allowed us to increase our server power, continue to restock the war chest, and invest in some infrastructure upgrades. (Plus, we bought [staff profile] mark a pizza while he was hacking on community import.)


They bought Mark a pizza. They just accounted for one of the most random $10 a company can spend. LJ barely lets you know what they're doing with the servers anymore, and DW has let us know that they bought Mark a pizza. I really hope to continue to see this level of honesty from DW. I have to say, I'm really starting to like it here.

LOL: Ryan got out of bed at about 4:00 today. He usually gets up at 7:00. I told him to go back to bed, but he got up anyway. About an hour later, he IMed me from the other room, asking why I changed the system time on his computer. After a few moments of arguing about it, something hit me. Rather than checking the time against his phone, he assumed that I was fucking with him. Because, you know, that's so much more likely than him waking up way early and not hearing me when I told him to go back to bed.

Annoying #1: The weather's turned, and it's now all overcast and rainy. Also, I am directly under the airport flightpath. SO LOUD. Augh. Fuck you, physics. I can't even hear myself think.

Annoying #2: Through a morbid curiosity, I've started watching Ally McBeal on Netflix. Goddamnit to hell, but Tourette's Lawyer in this is making my stammer worse. I swear to god, if I start picking up his other tics, I want someone to fucking shoot me. Augh augh augh. Balls.
