Adventures in Twizzling, et al  
Against my better judgment, I bought a bag of Twizzlers on Monday. They are now aged to perfection and taunting me from the corner of my desk. I bet I'm sick by the end of the day. But probably happy.

I contacted my aikido instructor today, asking if I could start up classes again next month. His response was "OH MY GOD YES YOU CAN", which made me feel loved. Now that I have a happy, functional car and such, the drive won't be such a pain. It will, however, still be a Monster Trek of Martial Arts on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in which I drive directly from work to aikido in Burnsville (maybe 6 or 7 miles), leave a few minutes early to drive to St. Louis Park (maybe 7 or 8 miles) for eskrima, and then drive home (another 10 miles). It's well worth the drive, but not when I was driving a car that wanted to rattle itself apart.

No one I work with wants to work today. It's as if the office has been flooded with demotivational gas. Which would be a freaking awesome weapon. "We should probably fend off this invading army." "Yeah, I know. Maybe just ten more minutes on LJ."

Tonight is a writing night - Caribou Coffee and their free wifi rock. I'm working on a new idea with an extremely weird set of physics at oblique angles to ours that involve not!zombies and interlocking universe spheres. Yeah, I know. It makes sense to me, but I bet it sounds incomprehensible to anyone else. Hopefully, the novel will *not* be incomprehensible.

This concludes today's random journal entry. So say we all, and all that.

Now I want to see if I can work that concept into a story...

It would be a seriously awesome weapon.

I can think of so many ripe targets for demotivational gas, except even if we had the stuff handy, how would we get it to the target?

I'm extremely cranky about suddenly losing almost all my bd classes. For all I know, I'll be the only one to show up tonight & we'll lose that one too.

You'd have to have an antidote. I would use Excedrin, for it gets me up and moving even when I'm tired and have a horrible headache.

I don't blame you, being upset about all your classes evaporating. I'd be extremely pissed off, too. How long until the next session? Six weeks? I'D BE SO MAD.

(The last word was almost "MAN". Opps.)

You mean "oops," not "opps." ;-)

Actually, it was a joke that fell flat. Shocker! :-)

It's a current internet meme (apparently not as wide-spread as I thought) to make an oops by using 'opps'.

heh

I've missed that one. Whereabouts have you seen it? I've only seen "opps" used unironically. I am not spending enough time at the "cool" places.

The best reference I can find is this, but it's a very long animated gif. Basically, the original demotivational poster is of a nuclear explosion with the caption "OPPS One does not defuse nuclear weapons. Not even if one's name is MacGyver." Then it degenerates into a gigantic self-referential thing of people making fun of each other, starting with OPPS.
