Things Which Are Happening:  
Weather: I am very cold! 27 degrees F isn't that cold compared to lots of other places where you have to plug in your car and stuff, but it's cold indoors because my rather shoddily-constructed apartment isn't up for it. At work, the boiler in our high-rise isn't working right, so it's 60 degrees all day in there, and at home I finally got it up to 62 with a space heater and the oven. The cold is making my brain run a bit slow.

Your Eternal Soul: So, the apocalypse started in Arkansas, I hear? Whether this is a direct act of God (armageddon), an indirect act of God (fault line something something?) or an act of man (pesticides?), there's no way this is anything but an extremely bad sign. Since that's terrifying, I choose to think of this as an X-Files episode and imagine Scully going "Mulder, don't you think pesticides is a more reasonable explanation than a cloaked alien spacecraft sending out concussive tremors that only affect birds and fish?" and Mulder making some wisecrack and everyone in the audience going "make out!"

Television: Raising Hope is hilarious! I finally started watching it. Hulu has all the episodes of the season up until February 8th. :)

Things I Wish I'd Thought Of: fyca sent me this card:

Seriously, don't you wish you'd thought of that? (She says the internet thought of it first.) It's gorgeous! I think a menorah version would be really cute too, with a jumbo paper clip for the candle-lighting-candle-doodle (shamash! cold is cold. brain is slow. wikipedia is helpful).

Glitches: I can't figure out why the "upload image" thing has suddenly gone berserk and uploads things the wrong way and smushes them weirdly if I try to turn them right-side-up and doesn't shrink them the way it used to. Pretend that tree was right-side-up and reasonably sized. My slacker way of posting images is not living up to my point-and-click expectations, dammit.

If I stay true to form, I'll start writing fic for it now!

I'm like that, okay?
Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 9th, 2011 06:16 am (UTC)
DO IT! :)

If you start now, you can have a fic for every day of the month. Go! Go!

Your pressie is still a mystery! Post office didn't leave it for me so I signed the "missed you!" card and hopefully they will bring it tomorrow! Eeeee!! *\o/*

I heart Raising Hope! It's such a cute show about crazy red necks! Hee!

Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 9th, 2011 06:10 am (UTC)
It's so adorable!!! And the baby is so cute! :) (I know people kinda like that. But I like them, too.)
anranr on January 5th, 2011 06:23 am (UTC)
Raising Hope is one of the most adorable shows I've seen. *hearts it*

Also? That card is so pretty! And would also work with a snowflake design too, y/n? It's almost a shame I'm so lazy about sending out cards, lol.
Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 9th, 2011 06:10 am (UTC)
Yes! It probably would! I should make next year's Christmas cards now. Work my way backwards through the year, so by July or something I'll be totally prepared for all the rest of the holidays.
peanutbutterer: Sure...peanutbutterer on January 5th, 2011 06:52 am (UTC)
IT IS FREEZING, OMG!

I have nothing of value to say, but I wanted to use my Raising Hope icon. :)
Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 9th, 2011 06:11 am (UTC)
I loved that moment in the show! What a great icon. :) <3

hot water bottle. seriously awesome thing. cling to it.

card rocks. and dude, Arkansas had it coming?
Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 9th, 2011 06:13 am (UTC)
Das Boy makes water bottles by just filling empty 2-litre soda bottles with hot water from the tap.

I always suspected Arkansas would have a hand in the reckoning...
Opal: bsg tighPodoparu on January 9th, 2011 12:08 pm (UTC)
Das Boy is clever.

SEE!!! they are evil...just sayin'

There are more dead birds in Sweden. They keep saying the birds were reacting to fireworks, but if that's true why doesn't this happen every year on New Year's Eve? (Not to mention other holidays)

I WAS TOTALLY ALARMED!

Then scientists said "It happens all the time, y'all. Like every day. It's really the fault of blogs because now you know about it."

And then I was suspicious, because that's kind of the dumbest excuse ever to not do real science. FIGURE IT OUT, GUYS!

It's ok! Kirk Cameron says it's not the end of the world! He knows this because he's tight with God.

I'm so glad you liked the card!! I gave one to my boss too, for she gave me the golden paperclips, but I gave you the prettier one!

Also, Raising Hope is one of the four shows that I actually watch (along with Glee, 30 Rock, and Big Love.) Yay!! Did you know that they were originally going to call it Keeping Hope Alive, but they decided that sounded a little too twisted. I prefer the original title though.

Cold sucks a lot. I didn't have heat in Baltimore until February or March - and there was snow outside! Definitely learned the fine art of heating small places with space heaters and ovens. Be careful though! Stay warm!
Little Redmylittleredgirl on January 9th, 2011 06:15 am (UTC)
Oh, well. I'm glad something good came out of Kirk Cameron going completely insane.

The card is so lovely! :) And I thought Keeping Hope Alive was indeed too twisted when I first read this comment, but after mulling it over for a few days, that's hilarious.

*LOL*

The card is awesome. :D
