Tidbits of Matt's Life

This is where I post my incoherent ramblings. It's where I post the coherent ones, too!


February 13th, 2011

These'd be weird to include in a repost of my previous entry, so here's a separate entry for them @ 07:16 pm

Soundtrack: New Super Mario Bros. Wii - Airship

I've had a LOT of homework lately. That's why I haven't been on LJ in a while - I didn't have the time until just now. To make matters worse, our air card for high-speed Internet broke, so now we're having to resort to dial-up, which means that while using my computer, I have to switch back and forth between two uncomfortable positions: sitting on the floor, and laying on my bed looking down at my computer that's still on the floor but now has the screen upside-down so I can read it more easily. I have to type upside-down in the latter position, too, which means I type WAY slower. But at least it looks cool to scroll up and down like that :)

Several links I've been meaning to post for awhile:

Farmville for Dummies? Really?

A candy heart with an adult message? Really²?

A toilet video game system? Really³?

Shooting teenagers for being too mouthy? Really⁴?

And finally, as usual, my progress with my procrastination New Year's Resolution:

←Week 5 Week 7→

Feb 11:


Key:
green: The dark green shows how many days I had worked on one of my projects up to that day. I succeed if it enters the light green area. (Like that'll ever happen...)
red: shows how many days I had procrastinated and/or been too busy up to that day. I fail if it enters the pink area.

Great, this means that if more than 10 days are unusually busy like this weekend has been, I'm definitely gonna fail this one too :(

I don't know what the derogatory term for a woman's breasts is on the candy heart. So I'm confused on that link!

Scared the cr*p out of me when I saw the one about that mother shooting her teenage children like that! I'll be more wary of my own mum now ;-) How sad though :( :( :(

According to another article about it, the candy heart said, "NICE TITS". Even typing it as hidden text that you select to reveal feels weird to do...

EDIT: Don't mind this edit - I'm just finally getting around to updating this comment for my new (but not that new) journal style, which has a black background instead of white (and thus, the text was visible until I fixed it just now).

EDOT: So much for making the text and background both white so it'll remain if I change the background again - I can't figure out how to do it. Sorry for annoying you with all these edits :(

I'm not sure if it technically counts as "derogatory", though, since I've only heard the word "derogatory" used to describe racial slurs, but I may be wrong.

I'll be more wary of my own mum now ;-)

I'm lucky to not be very mouthy (or even very talkative), so I should be safe ;)

How sad though :( :( :(

Indeed it is face-cloningly sad...

Yay for the Internet working!

And I work when I can, but unfortunately I've had a lot of homework and other things to do lately :(

I meant please, internet. :) Is that a userpic of Gillian Anderson at the top of the comments?

*checks eccentricrabbit's userpics page*

Turns out it is! I didn't recognize her at first, having rarely seen Gillian Anderson as not Scully. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've looked at ER's userpics page before but apparently don't remember it... :(
