Alphabet survey thingy ganked from [personal profile] gramina. It's not super-long, but now there are those cute little Dreamwidth cut-tag thingies, so why not?

This is a long-assed post full of Q&A, and I blame mactavish, because I stole almost all of it from her. Feel free to skip it. )

Days of busybusy (magazine, family stuff, social stuff, housekeeping stuff) has fried my brain. I'm broke, but my pantries (typo: panties) are full (eww!) and the magazine will start wending its way to people tomorrow, after which the next issue goes to the printer at the end of the month (oy!). Been really enjoying reading The Graveyard Book to the Munchkin, and catching up with TV shows while I do clerical stuff for the magazine.

Haven't talked much about my new hobby, which is couponing, because I'm strangely embarrassed to be having so much fun doing it. I got $22 worth of stuff at CVS today for $.89 plus tax, and I immediately called my mom to brag. It's a game, and I'm having a blast (and feeding my family for less than $80 most weeks). Also, I think I will never again run out of cereal, toothpaste, mayonnaise, spaghetti sauce, or canned soup. Those things are always on sale.

And now, surveys from micheinnz because that's all I'm up for. )

I concur with the person I got this survey from: the way it was initially written (Add "Honestly,..." before each question) is beyond annoying. I've fixed it, because I do think some of the questions are interesting.

Another numbered list; can you see how much brainpower I don't have? :-)

1) Early next month, I have to attend a class on tubal ligation and Essure, even though they've already told me I exceed the weight limit for getting Essure, so ligation's my only sterilization option. Don't get me started on how fucking arbitrary and paternalistic that is. Or maybe yeah, get me started. I could use a chance to use my stompy boots today. Anyway, in a couple weeks, I'll take the class, and then as soon as they let me, I'll get my tubes tied. If you know me, you know this will make me very sad, even though it's exactly what I want to do. Be gentle with me if I get extra misty when we talk about your kids and your pregnancies and your grandkids and just kids in general, 'kay?

2) I'm working on my second website for the month. It's my first PHP/CSS integrated site, and I'm having fun and frustration learning to make the pages do what I want them to. For instance, right now the site works fine in Firefox but is blank in IE. This is just the kind of puzzle I love, until I overdose on frustration and want to quit. :-) Anyway, if you want to help me diagnose it, let me know; otherwise, just hang on a few days and I'll show you the working site. :-)

3) the femmy a-to-z thing that's going around, most recently seen at clever_doberman )

4) Tomorrow, work for a couple hours, then home to cook and clean until my fingers fall off. Then this weekend, other than (I assume) a visit with [ profile] stonebender, I may not leave my house. I may not leave my BED. Downtime, downtime, downtime.

Nicked from [ profile] custardfairy:

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship? Lots of them. Two of them are romantic relationships: [ profile] stonebender and [ profile] someotherguy. Several of them are familial or chosen-familial, and a great number of them are friendships.
02) What was your dream growing up? Being a famous singer
03) What talent do you wish you had? I wish I could talk Presidents and other world leaders into ending all wars. Hey, we're wishful thinking here, okay?

I may spend the rest of the day alternating between doing a little housework and answering LJ surveys. You've been warned.

This one, which I ganked from [ profile] mamagotcha, has actual meaty content, though I suspect it was written by someone who's a little young and titillated by the ooh-scary-controversial! nature of asking about things like abortion.

The 'controversial' survey -- I stole several of mamagotcha's answers )

It's been a long time since I had the time to just sit around and play on LJ, but today is still my birthday (observed), and I'm blowing off anything that's not exactly what I want to do.

I stole this survey from [ profile] hobbitbabe, who has probably had as drastic a changing past-ten-years as I have.

This one got long, because I'm feeling chatty. )
serene: mailbox (Default)
Stolen from [ profile] clever_doberman, along with at least one of her answers.

I deleted the questions that didn't interest me (mostly of the 'who will answer this first?' variety). Feel free to put different questions there, if you want. )

Long day. Mostly good, some really bad. I have just enough mental energy to spend time bolding text.

01) Bold what is true about you.
02) Underline what is half true.
03) Italicize what you wish was true about you.
04) Add one true thing about you to the end of the list.
05) Tag five LJ friends, if you want.
06) Ask me anything about any of my answers, if you want.

I'm tagging [ profile] bettybaker, [ profile] melanie, [ profile] elwoodontario, [ profile] moominmuppet, and [ profile] leback, but don't feel obligated if you don't feel like doing it.

Seen everywhere, but this one's from firecat. Warning: it takes a long time to do )

Still ouchy, still tired, but feeling a lot better today. Did some contract work for a while and caught up on alt.poly, but now I'm gonna goof off and fill out a survey, 'cause, well, I wanna.

50 questions )

I'm supposed to be writing software documentation. Clearly, I am not writing software documentation. Next, I will write software documentation, but right now, I'm gonna do this thing I swiped from [ profile] klwalton and a few others:

Two things I should be doing:

1. Working
2. Making toffee

Two things I'm actually doing:

1. Listening to [ profile] someotherguy talk about rational pantheism with his brother/boss
2. The Two Things Survey

See? )

This survey was nicked from [ profile] micheinnz, along with at least one of her answers. (For some reason, this survey made me want to give a bunch of smart-ass answers, but I decided not to. Not sure why.)
