For the record, my wife's a wedding photographer. I assist in that I hold lighting equipment sometimes. Or do whatever else needs to be done in that I sometimes end up assisting the DJ or caterers or whatever if they need an extra set of unskilled hands while my wife doesn't need me.

like the last wedding where all but four of the tables got wet and needed to be re-setup.

Just take some deep breaths, and say out loud as loud as you can, "OREGONAUT IS A FUCKING IDIOT." Seriously, it helps. I've been told this by a number of people. And that's statistical evidence.

Remember to pronounce Oregon oh-reh-gawn. That way, you spread seething rage to other people, and there's less left in the world for you. Emotions are a zero-sum game.

Oh-reh-gawn-ow-ut?

My mouth just made really elongated movements to get that out. I'll stick with the New Yorker way of saying it "Or-a-gon"

Much faster.

Semi - Rant: Gah, Yes fuckers, I do have a northern accent. No, I am not from North fucking Carolina. No, I will not pronounce any words that end in "all" just so you can hear me butcher it. I know I butcher it, you don't need to fucking remind me. Dicks.

Oh-REE-gawhn. That pronounciation makes me want to kill people.

For some reason, people also think my name is pronounced oregano. I am not certain why, but I can see why they would think that may be a purposeful misspelling.

Seriously though. Curse my name as loud as you can. I swear it helps.

So, tomorrow I had plans to drive to school to see some people for pretty much the last time, then drive 90 minutes to see Cake in concert for the first time, then drive to my parent's house to visit, then the next day drive back home. And tonight ...


... my muffler falls off. I know it's not dangerous to drive like that, but I'd really rather not get the ticket, especially on the two 90 minute drives during which I go through two speed traps and three toll booths. Also, the noise is already giving me a headache after just the 10 minute drive from where it fell off to home. Thanks Murphy.

Today is the beginning of not smoking so as to be clean for possible (though unlikely) drug tests during my upcoming job search. And I can't sleep. I just don't feel tired at all. At least I don't work until late afternoon tomorrow. But I like sleeping. Hopefully this effect will pass soon...

It has also been known as [...] "extreme lying down" (2008, Australasia).[6]

The game has been described by some as "pointless".[2][10]

I always thought it was called "FaceDown", as the Facebook group I saw it on (in like 2004?!) called it FaceDown and even had it written in the Facebook logo, and hence I've always called it FaceDown. Why this 'planking' thing got all up in my media all of a sudden has confounded me. It was one of those 'huh, newspapers have caught on to a tired internet meme $extended_period_of_time after it became popular. Again.'

For the record (which I'd really love to know where this is actually recorded when people say this), I pronounce Oregon as if it were 'paragon' but with an 'or' instead of a 'pa'.

I don't know how to pronounce oregano. oh-REGG-ah-no... OR-eh-GAH-no...

I pronounce Oregon like this, but with a shorter second syllable. Sometimes I wind up dropping that syllable altogether.

I pronounce oregano as or-EGG-an-oh.

So you're a vegetarian and you call me out on eating meat because you think it's murder.

But you're some sort of pseudo-vegetarian, because you do eat fish. So when I tell you you're even worst than me, by your own standards, because you eat something that has been slowly chocked/squished to death in a net and I eat things killed much more humanly by electric-pin-in-the-brain, you get angry?

I fear some excrement could once again start flying in one of the societies I'm a member of. Last term we took the, relatively, at least in recent history, unprecedented step of banning a member entirely from society activities, for numerous violations in the field of 'doing it wrong' and pissing off swathes of the active membership in his short period of activity. He hangs around in another society, where I'm told he isn't appreciated much and also is a convict in 'doing it wrong', and apparently also rather disliked among his yeargroup/subject/college. Now most of the societies have a dedicated IRC on a communal student public server, ours pretty active. Noticed in logs last night while I was dormant that a user matching his id and profile name signed in and said hi briefly at 2-3am, and is still sitting in on this one and the channel for his other soc of choice. Now with exams going on and not much soc activities things are quiet these days in any case, but I feel storm could blow over when others start noticing who the newb-in-the-corner is, and try convincing him he's not quite welcome. Though I'm not sure if permaban in the real world can legitly filter down to permaban from a public channel with no ops.

Not much of a rant I guess, I apologise.

I don't care that you think you're all so accepting, but there are still a plethora of reasons one wouldn't want to be one of the "gay kids" at school! Your not accepting, your just a patronizing ass who talks about her "gay black friends of fabulousness" as if they're pets. Guess what! I'm bisexual leaning towards hetero, but I never plan on coming out to any of you because I can pass without feeling wrong, and I don't want to be like some fucking animal in a zoo for all of you. Yes, I'd rather be an animal in a good modern zoo than a colisseum fighter animal for the romans, but I'd rather not be either. God I hate all your fucking "oh lets go watch videos of cute gay couples" as if they're just ants in an ant farm. Fuck off. tolerance would be treating them like they were anyone else.


That's exactly my ongoing criticism about 'Basic Human Decency nazis'. They use all the right words and all the right phrases but all with the wrong thinking behind it.

Relevant Morgan Freeman quote:

Stop talking about it. I'm going to stop calling you a white man. And I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. - when asked how to get rid of racism in an interview with Mike Wallace on "60 Minutes" (1968)

Interviewer: Some people say they can’t understand your writing even after they read it two or three times. What approach would you suggest for them?

William Faulkner: Read it four times.
