Reading Robert Graves’s “The Greek Myths” has helped me rediscover the divine in everything.
TOMORROW IS WIL WHEATON'S BIRTHDAY
geekandsundry: He has dubbed it “Don’t Be a Dick Day”. Please educate yourself and act accordingly. For Wil. Don’t Be a Dick Day is the same day that the Slovakians and I are escaping from our boss for the whole day? Coincidence? I think NOT! Also, happy birthday, Wil!
Weird things about restaurants...
So, whenever I eat in a restaurant, if I want my food to arrive, I usually go to the bathroom. There is something about me going to the bathroom that makes the chef magically decide that my table is more important than the walk-in 34-top that came in an hour before me, and the waiter/tress decide to yell at the chef until my table’s order is in his/her hands. This has been proven effective...

*Oh, good, there's no one else here. This'll be easy. In and out.*
You settle yourself in front of a urinal.
The door to the restroom opens abruptly. The sound and implication that you are no longer alone startles you.
You feel cold.
You pray that the new occupant opts for a stall instead, because-
*Oh, shit, he didn't.*
*Okay, this is fine. Stare straight ahead and just go. Just go. I really have to go, this shouldn't be a problem.*
He starts peeing. In the otherwise silent bathroom, his proud and confident stream does nothing but highlight the fact that you clearly haven't been peeing.
He can hear. He can hear you not peeing right now. He knows.
*Don't think about that, just focus on peeing and all-*
"What's up, Man?"
*How have guys who talk in the bathroom not been shunned out of society?!*
"N-nothing, man." *Just peeing, is all.*
"Oh, yeah. Chillin' chillin?"
*This conversation should be illegal.*
"Yes, I am chilling chilling."
"No doubt. Crazy weather," he says, and he continues to chat, because you are the only one in the world who doesn't know how to talk and pee and stand next to another human at the same time. The only one in the world.
Giving up, you pretend to shake away make believe urine, and maybe you even say "That sure was a good urine session," to really drive your ruse home, and then you make your exit. It is the toilet equivalent of faking an orgasm.
Today marks the first day I understood a Slovak phrase not because the girls told me what it meant, but because I knew all the words that were in the phrase. Also, I learned how to say, “My boss is a dick.” This one shall come in handy.

But I won’t make you poor people deal with it unless you want to. It’s really just whining. [[MORE]] I just miss Kenyon so much. I was really boring for my friends here (I’m frequently the primary source of entertainment) the other day, because they (A) brought up breaking up couples, which, if I selfishly pursue my own happiness, I would be doing, and which was also the...
arielle: oh my god what if there was a vengeful fangirl ghost who haunted tumblr and reached through your computer to kill you if you gave her feels
me: that would be absolutely terrifying
arielle: it's the horror story of a new era
me: pfff Bloody Mary? this is Bloody Mary-Sue
arielle: say otp three times while looking at soul crushing fanart
me: stand in a completely dark room and turn around three times in front of your laptop
arielle: all the bodies are midding their hearts and ovaries and smell vaguely of nutella
me: spoiler alert: it's actually steven moffat and nothing makes sense
My Fight with Myrmida, the Termite
Do not read this if bugs and/or the killing of them grosses you out. I generally do not believe in killing things outside of video games. IRL, I only kill things if they pose a direct threat to me or a loved one. So when I saw what looked like an ant with wings fly around my room, I affectionately named my new pet Myrmida. I would later learn this was no ant but a termite. And my cottage is...

let's call this one the why. [tw: rape]
gyzym: Okay, so I’m seeing a lot of things floating around on my dash today, but what I’m especially seeing is fights about whether or not rape jokes are funny. And, of course, I’m seeing this story, about a comedian responding to the suggestion that rape jokes aren’t funny with the words “Wouldn’t it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of...
