      Hey Secret Santa

      9 months ago

      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

      3 years ago

      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.

      So hey, I survived. It really wasn't that bad, and aside from being snowed in and losing power for the majority of the time, it was pretty fun. A pain in the ass, but fun.

      Also, tons of trees were murderlated.

      Pictures here.

      I love seeing this view every day.

      For my Secret Santa

      3 years ago

      Journals from previous years:

      2010
      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.

      p.s. <3

      Whelp.

      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.

  • About Me

    I'm always happy to make an idiot of myself as long as it brings a smile to someone's face. So I have no problem looking like a complete doofus or acting like a dork. If you find something weird here, it's probably because I'm cheering someone up.

        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

        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. :(

        I don't hate ya.

        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.

      www.atwestend.com/site/landing.html

      I especially liked the owl towel holders and door stops.

        Ahahaha, it would drive Jabberhubby crazy if I filled the house with owls like that. (His grandmother, funny enough, is crazy about owls too.) So, I try to limit myself... a little bit.... slightly.

        HA, I've had those robot nesting dolls for over a year, and I was gonna give them to you for your birthday when you came to visit your BF but then you had to cancel and they went back into the pile of "things to send to friends eventually".... and of course I waited so long I was super worried you already had a set! Though I guess having 2 of them wouldn't be terrible either, lol.

        I'm so glad that you like it! One day, we will have a sleepover and I'll wear my teddy bear hat or reindeer hat and you can wear your bunny hat and we will bake cookies and watch Doctor Who and it will be GLORIOUS.

        Also, if I had black fleece laying around, I would have been totally tempted to make Drew a penguin one.... actually this might have to happen anyway FOR REASONS.

        it fits WONDERFULLY! And no kidding, just yesterday, I was pointing at crochet patterns for bunny hats and asking drew to make me one. i read the note in the package first, and as soon as i saw "bunny hat" i started squeeing like a freakin' insane person and stamping around and getting all excited.

        you know me way too well <3<3<3
