Part III: CLEO DID NOT FREEZE OMG...AT LEAST I DON'T THINK SO.
@cleolinda: Twenty degrees here. Granular ice has frozen into solid hunks of ice, although roads are clear. Dogs are displeased, do not want.
@foresthouse: HAPPILY @CLEOLINDA IS NOT ONE OF THOSE SOLID BLOCKS OF ICE. YET. BUT HER DOG JUST WENT WHIZZING ACROSS THE LAWN. #didcleofreezeyetomgupdates
@cleolinda: Snow flurries. Still only 22 degrees. Not getting warmer like they said it would.
@foresthouse: WEATHER PEOPLE ARE LIARS. LIARS I TELL YOU!! OH THERE GOES SCOUT AGAIN. @CLEOLINDA BOUGHT HIM DOGGIE ICE SKATES. #didcleofreezeyetomgupdates
@foresthouse: SCOUT: *whizzzzzzzzzzzzzz zip wheeeeeeeee* #doggieskating #didcleofreezeyetomgupdates @cleolinda
@foresthouse: AND THAT WAS THE LAST WE HEARD OF ANY OF THEM. (2 DAYS AGO) RT @foresthouse SCOUT: *whizzzzzzzzzz zip wheeeeeee* #didcleofreezeyetomgupdates
@foresthouse: D: #didcleofreezeyetomgupdates #sorryCleoIcouldntresist
So now you know...clearly, things did not end well. OR DID THEY??
And while we're here:
CRACKED AND TWITTER: ENCOURAGING RANDOM BONO JOKES SINCE 2011
This is mostly Viv's fault. (And you kind of have to read #2 at the link for it to make sense.)
@foresthouse: Read #2 & tell me you aren't thinking: 1) Quantum Leap! 2) It's kind of hilariously awesome; and 3) Hee, that Bono joke http://bit.ly/hxq9a3
@cutebutpsycho76: I love a good Bono joke :D
@foresthouse: Meee toooo. Hee. "Overjoyed, man!"
@cutebutpsycho76: "I feel overjoyed at the possibility of rocking out."
@foresthouse: "I am despondent at the thought of playing an inferior guitar."
@cutebutpsycho76: "The situation in Darfur is making me depressed. Also, Larry throwing drumsticks at me is raising my ire."
@foresthouse: "I feel dismay when I realize I'm going to have to sing Sunday Bloody Sunday AGAIN tonight to make the fans happy."
@cutebutpsycho76: "I am full of sadness realizing I can't fit into the tight leather pants of the Zoo TV Tour. Damn French food."
@foresthouse: "I am cast into deepest gloom by the discovery that my sunglasses have been stolen by a crazy person. AGAIN."
@cutebutpsycho76: "I am elated by the fact that Jay-Z has consented to yet another collaboration, despite the cries of anguish from Larry."
@foresthouse: "I feel great comtentment every time I look at my cool hair."
@cutebutpsycho76: "I am annoyed that people do not believe the BOOM!CHA!s in Discotechque were entirely necessary."
@foresthouse: "I am chagrined that while I'm on the 360 Tour bridge people keep trying to grab my feet. I just polished these boots!"
@cutebutpsycho76: "Not to mention that's where I store my throat lozenges in the heels."
Hee! Yes, yes, we are a bit ridiculous (I BLAME VIV). Hey, at least I didn't post that time we made up an entire Escape-From-The-Law movie plot via Twitter. Although maybe I should have. Hee.
In other, very exciting news, wonderful Marvel and Deadpool artist and Nice Dude Reilly Brown has donated an original Deadpool drawing to the charity auction for my eye surgeries. It is So. Awesome. <3 The auction runs until January 20. Check it out!
AND don't forget, most of the other current auctions end tomorrow at noon! LOTS of cool stuff!!
But only the topmost bestest linkspamination today!
--> Hear the Cybraphon's first song (see Bono-related Twitter link above for what the Cybraphon is).
--> Don't forget to laugh with Kevin at his Straight Guy Reviews of Bad Romance Novels, Part V of which just went up. Not only is it funny stuff, but Kevin's reactions to reading his first romance novel ever also are food for some good thoughts and discussions re: the genre in general and the perceived gender roles/norms/desires that are expressed through it. Crap, did I just make something awesome sound a bit dry and boring and like a college class? I didn't mean to! READ THEM THEY'RE FUNNY.
--> Everybody panic, you're no longer a [Pisces] [Libra] [Whatever You Are] and must now learn to accept that all the horoscopes you ever read were wrong! Even the one where you were going to win the lottery. Especially if you're actually an Ophiuchus now, which I can't even spell reliably yet.
*^$@ that noise, I was born a Pisces and I'm gonna stay one 'til the day I die.
...OH WAIT. Aquarii get to use the excuse that their horoscope calls them "eccentrics"?? It's like a Free Pass For Life to all the weird stuff I've ever said or done. I'LL TAKE IT.
...But...wait...I LIKE the two-fish-circling-each-other symbol. Also: water.
*&$%^@!! I'm so conflicted.
...No, no I'm not. PISCES FOREVER!!! *burns Aquarius flag*
P.S. YES, particle_person, Pluto is still a planet. FOREVER.
--> First Look at Chris Evans at Captain America. I approve of the costume! Also I like Chris Evans; he was the best part of Fantastic Four, except for all the scenes with Ioan Gruffudd, who is smokin'. But seriously: funny guy, good delivery, good looks (very!); looking forward to seeing what he does with Cap.
--> Han Solo's in Firefly?! Yes, yes he is, and it is awesome. Oh, Nathan Fillion and Firefly folks, I <3 you so.
--> How To Make Your (Online) Shopping Cart Suck Less
Just because: hee!
