      I'm keeping it simple this year.

      I like:

      - Fingerless gloves
      - Leg warmers / boot cuffs
      - Winter hats with big pom poms
      - Space stuff
      - Moon stuff
      - Local coffee (whenever I go to a new city, I find a local coffee brand I haven't tried yet, and take it home to drink)

      My favorite colors are:

      cobalt, emerald green, dark purple
      any shade of blue, blue-green, blue-grey, grey
      any jewel-tone colors (except maybe orange or yellow)

      Love,
      Jabber

      I'm taking Astronomy this quarter and I'm in love. I may need to switch majors.

      Last night, we took a field trip to the MRO and played with telescopes and software and stuffs. And it was ridiculous fun. (We also played board games and listened to records when the sky wasn't clear enough to do any observing.)

      BUT ANYWAY PICTURES

      So... this is the Dumbbell Nebula.

      When you use a telescope to take pictures, you get a black and white image. You have to apply different colored filters and take multiple pictures. And then you layer the pictures and make a composite image, like the one above. (Which is pretty much how every camera works ever. But you have to physically/manually do it with telescopes, each one separately. Or use programming/coding or specific software to do it for you.)

    • Hello, I am your Printer

      Jabberwocky

      I will spend over an hour and a half fighting you every step of the way.

      I know you only need to print a single document consisting of only a single page. And I know that after you sign it, you only need to scan in that single document consisting of a single page and email it somewhere.

      It won't matter how many times you unplug me, reset me, or disable and enable wireless, I need at least 30 minutes to get ready and be online, and then I will only print your document in color, with no black. And you will spend another 20 minutes converting your PDF to a Word document so you can print in navy.

      Then, when you finally get your document printed and signed, you will want to scan it. But I will disconnect and need another 30 minutes to be ready again. I am, after all, high maintenance. You can't expect this perfection in only a minute like other printers, you silly person. A minute, ha!

      You will scream in frustration. You will throw your mouse down on your desk (though I noticed you were careful to throw it on your cushy mousepad). I will laugh though, because you're kind of cute when you're mad.

      You can't rush me though, no matter how angry you get. But eventually, I will finally scan, and you will have to convert the document to grayscale. (And you can only do grayscale, because trying to change it to black & white makes everything go weird and squiggly.)

      And then you will cross your fingers and email it, hoping they will accept this new document, in grayscale, instead of their original black with their blue and green logos.

      But they accepted it right? So, I did my job just fine after all, aren't you a lucky gal?

      Love and kisses,
      Your Printer


      p.s. Too bad you're not that handsome man with the beard though. I would work for him in a flash, like I always do.

      2009 - Skip the house bit, derp.
      2008

      Obviously, I've said a lot of the same things in previous years.

      OWLS
      Anything handmade.

      This year, I'll add:

      Cthulhu.

      Caffeinated hot chocolate - Especially the mint. Though, I'd probably enjoy any of Thinkgeek's caffeinated products. Also, if you search my name, my Wishlist should come up... but, there are a bunch of random shit on there because I'm way too lazy to streamline it.

      Seeds or seed bombs to grow shit.

      Candle holders -- Until we get a generator, we've been a little fucked when the power goes out... we've been using cups and shit to put candles into and it's annoying. Would love some thrifted candle holders.

      Bonus points? Owl candle holders. Jabberhubby thinks this sort of thing is creepy. Score!

      Any DIY kits for the kitchen.

      Favorite colors: Teal, turquoise, blues, greens,dark purples

      T-shirt sizes:
      XL in Girls
      M in Mens


      I'm braindead. If this isn't enough leads for you to go on, you're shit out of luck.

      Since I have received no real RSVPs on Thanksgiving, we're not going to plan a big dinner. Especially since it looks like it will only be the 2 of us this year.

      If any of you still want to show up, let me know. We'll be doing beer-can chicken, gumbo, sweet potatoes, and whatever desserts I feel like making at the time. (Angel food cake and snickerdoodle cupcakes? And pumpkin pie? Haven't decided yet.)


      This year is so MEH for the holidays here. BUT WE HAVE A PUPPY.

      So there's that.

        Oh shoot, well, I wonder if that's because one of the professors (he taught my Math 99 class) is ANCIENT but he refuses to retire, lol. He's wonderful though and says "Jeepers!" at least twice during every day of class.

        You'd be surprised. I teach at a CC in a poor, rural county right now and my benefits are pretty awesome.

        The only reason I didn't apply was that the only math posting was a pooled position, meaning they accept applications at any time for future openings. Generally, this means they have one or two possible openings, and if you're going to apply you have to be in the pool pretty early on

      • Jabberwocky

        2 years ago

        That would have been amazing!

        All of the math teachers I've had at EvCC so far have been wonderful, just incredible. They care so much about math clicking with their students, it's great! It would have been a good bunch of colleagues for ya to have.

        But I imagine university job benefits are probably a lot better than college community ones, lol.

      The "non-dog person" thing:

      It's not that I hate dogs or even dislike them, I think it's more of a problem I have with the way a lot of society has become more enthralled with dogs and animals than human beings. And I know, it's no different than having an expensive hobby, but when I hear people talk about their dogs as if they're their own child and these people have children, I just get really pissed off. I wanted to emphasize "have children" because I understand that some people can't, so they fill that void with animals, and I completely understand that and wouldn't bash those people.

      But to the others, I want to tell them that if their dog would so happen to bite my child, I wouldn't think twice to end its life. Whereas if a person bit my child, I would get physical with that person and probably call the police. That's how I separate the two views.

      I will never wish ill upon an animal, and I couldn't harm an animal unless it does harm to a child of mine. So therefore I consider myself a "non-dog person."

      I hope you don't hate me now. :(

        Society is dumb.

        And a dog that bites anyone is the fault of the owner (and lack of proper training) and not necessarily the fault of the dog. But I see where you're coming from.

      Jabber, I got a catalog from this site today and saw so many cool house things and pretty owl things. Thought I'd share.

      we had been and i feel like thats

      has been on the lacking for year and now has
      sunk to nothing. I can't say i'll do better all i can do
      is say that i wish we would have known each other better.

        Awww, you're cute. <3

        The dude who pierced my nose pierced the damn thing too low, so my body's stupid healing mechanisms fucked up the piercing something fierce, and the holes started slipping crooked. Even after a year, it was being finicky and crooked and bleeding everywhere and awful. I took it out a few months ago, and I'm letting it fully heal, and I'm going to get it repierced in August probably, and try again.

        A lot of people haven't been participating much around here anymore. Shoot, I rarely even post journals anymore either, so I kind of suck.

        No worries, dear.

      But Jabberhubby and I are totally antisocial hermits.


      LOL. So are we, but we did end up talking to our then-newish neighbors a little bit to compare notes about rumors re power, cable, etc repairs. We lived in my old house for 4 years and barely knew one set of neighbors enough to say hello to them if we happened to see them ... and that was in little dead-end street neighborhood. We are such recluses, it's not funny. We did like to go to this little art house cinema nearby and a little family-owned homemade ice cream place. We still go to the first one, but it's a bit of a drive now.

      At least you'll be better prepared next time. Well, live and learn. Shit. I didn't realize how late it was here. Have a good night!

    • Razzy

      4 years ago

      We also went to bed super early, we were just so bored and cold, there was nothing else to do.


      Exactly. We would charge the phones and mp3 players in the car. We each have a backup battery that had some juice in it. We had turned them off right away when the power went off, but booted them up a couple times to charge things. We were so bored, it was ridiculous. We had a good supply of AA batteries here, so I used them in an old portable CD player/radio some of the time. I can't imagine how we would have gone nuts if we had been snowed in like you guys. Oh, and FEMA was good enough to show up with food (those army meal things?) for people ..... yeah, after an entire WEEK of being without power. Heckuva job there, FEMA!

      Oh, that's good that you have a gas stove. Ours is electric. They did get power on to businesses on our Main St. so we ate out a few times and one of the places was nice enough to let us plug our phones in to charge while we ate.

      Another thing we did was buy one of those solar lanterns that you put out on the deck that glows at night and we would put that out all day and then use it in the house at night to provide a little bit of light besides candles. We eventually bought a couple of hurricane lamps, too (good for warming your hands!!). We lucked out that it got warm outside quickly, but still took a few days for all that snow to melt, but our apt. was much colder than outdoors. We ended up going to bed ridiculously early and staying in bed a lot during the day with every sweater on and every blanket over us just to keep warm.

      Can definitely sympathize with what you guys went through. I never want to do that for that long again!

      The last time we went to my dad's for Thanksgiving he took us to a restaurant.

      My parents are fine and I actually like their new SOs, but recently my dad started giving me shit over the fact that I've been to my mom's (where I've ALWAYS gone for Thanksgiving) every year.

      So if that becomes an issue I'm just going to take my ball and go home.

      oh i LOVE me some sweet potato fries. sooo good. i kinda feel that sweet potatoes are sweet enough w/o marshmallows, although will happily eat them for the novelty. but i am yet to meet a pumpkin pie that i can enjoy eating.

      i DO want to try the pumpkin cupcake recipe that sarah had a while back...

      while i'd LOVE to celebrate thanksgiving here, turkey is WAY too spensive. like $40 for the size of a large chicken. but this is just me whinging. also as it's spring/summer this time of year, a roast is kind of an odd thing to have when it's bbq season.

      come bring thanksgiving here, mmmkay?
