taking care of business

First order of business: I have one Dreamwidth invite if anyone's interested. Please include your email address in the comment. Taken! But if you're interested in any future invite codes I get, you can still comment and I'll put you on the list.

Second order of business: I haven't watched last night's HIMYM yet, and I think it's because I don't want to spoil my T: TSCC high (which makes no sense, because I've watched plenty of episodes today at work, but I can't help it - my brain sorts TV into two very distinct categories: Work and Non-Work). I watched the last two episodes last night Collapse )

Third order of business: AmazonFail seems to have worked itself out, and my bet is that the "glitch" is explained here. So, not a homophobic company policy, but company who allows some dimwit (or committee of dimwits) who is homophobic (or at the very least, very, very ignorant) to influence their policy.

But yay for me, because now I can order season one of T: TSCC! =)

Made of Fail and Win

First of all: Amazon Rank (from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books).

Secondly, remember how I pre-ordered Pushing Daisies season 2? Well, I canceled it, and told Amazon that I would buy it from their rival Play.com, along with everything else I usually would have bought from them until they fix this. But from the way this shitstorm has snowballed since I first heard about it, I'm thinking I'll just end up reordering it from Amazon, because I can't imagine they can keep this policy in place now.

I spent the last few days cleaning my apartment (taking stuff to the recycling center, tackling the balcony, buying new plants, etc), so today I took some time off. Which naturally led to watching more Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (I am completely smitten. Still).

But in an effort to not run out of episodes before noon (I only had four or five left this morning), I went back to Super Mario Galaxy, where I'd been stuck for a while. And because of my determination not to run out of episodes, I've now added 15 more stars, and I still have the last two episodes of T:TSCC to watch. I had meant to watch them tonight, but I got all caught up in link-hopping and now I still have episodes saved for tomorrow! Yay!

In all the Amazon excitement, I almost forgot the reason I had intended to post today: I got myself a Dreamwidth account! And for once I managed to snag my user name without underscores! I managed to import most of it okay, but the comment import was aborted on the first try, and when I tried it again, it imported them twice. Eeek! Weirdly, the comment count in my journal is correct, but in my user info I have twice the number of comments, and there are duplicate comments on every entry. Oh well.

If you've got an account, let me know!

Everybody's working for the weekend!

I'm currently halfway through The Deeper Meaning of Liff, which is like my favorite new thing. For those not in the know, it's "a dictionary of things there aren't any words for yet", by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd. All words are really geographical places. Collapse )

And let me tell you, by the time I stopped working at almost eight last night, I was feeling hynish in the extreme. But today was the first day of my five day weekend, so today is a happy day!

I've been watching a lot of TV since my last update. A LOT. I'm almost back to my January levels, after dropping to alarmingly low levels in March.

I've run out of NCIS seasons on DVD, so unless this Farscape itch gets its claws in me completely, I think the next show in the pipeline is going to be Deadwood. Finally!

I've been really good about adding 25 bucks to my Kiva account each month, and so far this year, I've made seven new loans (the repaid loans have enabled me to loan $175, even though I've only put $100 into my account)! And I think that once this year is up, I'll probably be able to make at least a loan a month in perpetuity without adding another cent.

And since I love the idea of this site so much, here's that link again:

Kiva - loans that change lives

And if you do decide to make a loan, do join the fandom team. The number of members has doubled since my last mention, and the amount loaned has quadrupled, but I still think fandom can do much more.

And if you're into country rivalry, Team Sweden just passed Team USA, which is simply pitiful, you guys. Come on, where's your patriotism?! ;-) (If you're wondering where my patriotism is, I don't care so much about the US being ahead of us, since the US population is about 30 times the size of ours. I just want us to beat those @%!#^/$ Norwegians!)

Just rambling

So, guess what my job has been since I last posted? If you took a look at my icon and guessed "translating Sports Night", YOU'D BE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

"But, Jems," you're probably asking yourself right now, "if something good is happening, how can you be sure it's still 2008? How can you be sure you weren't sucked into some type of time vortex?" Well, I'll tell you: It's because I was dropped smack dab into the middle of the freakin' Dating Plan! The one storyline that makes me question if I actually like this show since it sucks SO MUCH.

Oh well.

My (by now) regular Oh, LJ, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! update

So, LJ is once again pissing off the Harry Potter fandom. And if you want to target a fandom, lord knows that's the one that's going to get you the least amount of attention and trouble. /sarcasm

Last time, I really didn't think they would enforce their newly updated rules unless they were backed into a corner, but I was wrong. I think it's pretty obvious that they're cleaning up their site in order to make it look more appealing to investors/buyers.

So, with this in mind, I've decided that I'm going to start cross-posting to my InsaneJournal, which I prefer Collapse )

I've got a problem, though. I'm a moron and can't figure out how to add another user to Semagic. ETA: See comments on IJ mirror for tutorial link. I know how to change the server setting so I can access IJ, but I don't know how to add it as a separate account. I'm assuming this can be done? I guess it wouldn't be a hardship to do it manually considering how rarely I post, but I'd really like to have it automated if possible.
