Things I would have twot had I been able

The one site where you can only type 140 characters is trying to CENSOR me. It doesn't want you to know what I am thinking.

Here are things I tried to say the past few days:

• I tried to tell Leah that I am not up on my huge-eyes-no-nose-having news.
• I tried to thank Marg for pointing me to this site because it is, in fact, funny.
• I tried to tell Larry that I also love watching "IT Crowd"
• Just now I tried to ask Alison how Cobra Commander is in (500) Sweater Vests of Summer
• I also wanted to tell everyone how I saw a Hare Krishna picnic and then we saw the police jump their car onto the sidewalk, stop the car, take off running and help arrest what may have been neo-nazis at a Metis festival at the art gallery.
• I was also going to point out this site with spooky pictures that change when you move by them
• I was going to say I finally started reading Slaughterhouse Five because I somehow missed it in high school and that so far I'm underwhelmed and that I like Gravity's Rainbow and Catch-22 better for WW2 novels.

Probably some other stuff, too. I'm so in the habit of spouting off short sentences that I guess I will just start putting them all here again.

It's been eating my updates, too, and the client on my iphone can't even connect to the site to read it. I'm told it has something to do with russian hackers, but I ceased caring.

That blows my theory that people trying to update with something other than the web app were getting though.

...aaaaaand apparently now all the eaten submissions are catching up.

I think Annie told me about the Bratz thing because I was talking about how much I dislike them.

I also love watching "IT Crowd", especially how much acting is done by an afro.

I'm on the other end for WW2 novels - I loved Slaughterhouse Five, but I never finished Catch-22, and I don't want to even BEGIN Gravity's Rainbow. Maybe there's just a limit to how many WW2 books I'll care about, and I'm all full.

Wikipedia's list of WW2 novels seems incomplete. I think after I finish Slaughterhouse Five that I will be done with WW2 novels from the point-of-view of American soldiers.

So I don't get to control the start of watching any new series since we had watched some of The IT Crowd season 2 prior to our season 1 viewing.

I think Season 1 was my favorite though Season 2 had its moments. I still haven't watched Season 3 even though we have it.

Season 2 starts off strong (The Work Outing), and has The Dinner Party, but it really goes off the rails at the end.

Season 3 is much, much better - at least watch Are We Not Men? and Speech.

The Dinner Party is one of my favorites, but yeah, it goes downhill from there. I never liked Douglas as much as Denholm.

I will be sure to check out those episodes.

Oh my god both of those links are amazing.

breakfast of champions is a better vonnegut.
Aug. 9th, 2009 07:03 pm (UTC)
I really liked that one. I even liked the movie which most people seemed to hate.
Aug. 9th, 2009 07:04 pm (UTC)
i liked that movie up until they completely changed the ending. and it even had a vonnegut cameo!

Cobra Commander was quite watchable. Zooey Deschenal was quite punchable. I blame the scriptwriter and director for that.

I'm simultaneously bummed and pleased that 500 Sweater Vests isn't that highly recommended on the Alison Scale of Punching - that way I can wait to see it.

How hot was the Baroness?
