Me: *making lunch*
Athena: *politely ignoring me from the other room*
Me: *gets out a bag of grated cheese*
Athena: *perks up, continues pretending to ignore me*
Me: Gee, I have this whole big bag of cheese here, if only there were someone I could share it--
Athena: *rubs up against my legs* *prrprrprr*

So I just got home and sat down and got settled, and I saw Orion across the room from me, staring. And I stared back. He sneaked toward me a little and stopped, and repeated this until he was right next to me. He then stretched up onto his back legs and tapped me on the shoulder with his front paw, and ran.

I think I'm "it" now.

I just saw Elysium, and can safely create a list of things Neill Blomkamp really, really likes.

Cut for length and very minor spoilers, if you've seen even one trailer you're probably goodCollapse )

Thankfully, I like many of those things, am indifferent to a few, and only actively dislike one. (Guess which one. *eyeroll*)

A few more spoilery thoughts, below the cut:

Actual spoilers ahoy.Collapse )

The scene: Tianna's car, where we're discussing anything but this week, because this week is depressing as fuck. The radio somehow goes from playing "Gimme Shelter" to "Margaritaville," so we switch to the local classic rock station. A minute later...

Ti: Wait a second, they're playing Soundgarden.

Me: ...omg, you're right.

Ti: I used to listen to this when I was driving this route to high school every day.

Me: At least they don't yet have a dedicated '90s night?

Ti: They do.

Me: ... THAT IS NOT THE ANSWER I WANTED TO HEAR.

Actually sung to my boycat this morning:

Hey dude
Don't bite my leg
Learn your lesson
And behave better.
Remember, your teeth are really damn sharp.
Could you please start
To behave better?

Me-ow me-ow me-ow me-ow me-ow me-ow hey!

Meow, meow meow mewmeowmow, mewmeowmow, hey dude. x(infinity)

QotD, while in a grocery store trying to find something sweet that one of my cousins (who's severely allergic to nuts) can eat:

Me: OMG, what did people with allergies do before allergen labels on food?
Mother: Mostly, they died.

...seriously, we found ONE THING that was acceptable in the entire baked goods section. Fruit pies? Almonds in the crust. Cakes and cookies? The ones that aren't nut-flavored are "processed on equipment that also handles" blah blah blah.

With two days until Christmas, the phone gods gave to me:

Four calls to tech support
Three Tier 2 agents
Two factory resets
And a brick that my phone used to be.

9-year-old cousin: When are you going to be on Jeopardy?
Me:: I haven't gotten a call back from them. They could call me tomorrow, or next year, or the year after that. Or not at all.
Cousin: Or they could call you to say they don't want you because you're too smart for your own good!
Me: *snrk*

So. My sister took her dog out for a walk a little while ago. Nothing untoward happened; they left and came back as normal.

A couple minutes later, we hear scratching at the door, and somebody jiggling the doorknob. And the doorbell rings.

I open the door, thinking it's a political canvasser who doesn't know what time it is. The boycat runs in, an "ohshitohshitohshit" expression on his face.

The little bastard had snuck out, but was thankfully too chicken to go far in the Big Bad Outside. And he was tall enough to ding the doorbell when he was doing his little trick with the doorknobs.

He's absolutely fine now. But he deserves ALL THE LAUGHS IN THE WORLD.
