New job, eh? I'll keep my toes crossed for you. Hard to type with fingers crossed, you know.

It's a metaphorical move, not a physical one. I'm kidding! I'm going to park a van in your driveway!

I did not know that Heaven 17's Are Everything was a cover. The only times I was ever checked out at concerts were at the pre-show symphony talks, when the the speaker would say "It's good to see some new faces!" while he looked right at me!
Actually, all 3 times they looked right at the woman sitting next to me. If you guessed Jess, yes. I was ignored.

Details on the "move" will likely come tomorrow on the page.

YOU'RE MOVING??!! Whyhowwhenwhere?! We need details, sir!! TELL US EVERYTHING!! Or as much as you're comfortable with putting on the internet.

After listening to "Strange Thing," I had to listen to "Are Everything" because my HS BFF and I played that EP into the ground--I still love the fake ending especially. When we saw Buzzcocks at a small-ish gig circa 1991, Pete Shelley rather flagrantly checked me out, to my everlasting shock and disbelief. Little did I know then that he would be one of several major longtime crushes from whom I would receive unexpected undue attention. No, I'm still not over it.

There doesn't seem to be a way (except maybe the new email, but if they check credit card numbers/ISPs, it might not work). You'd think so, as streaming is cheaper for them. And my crappy Frontier DSL sputters even during YouTube. When they first introduced streaming, you got as many hours as you paid for DVDs, so even my $7.99 a month got me 8 hours a month. I could afford both, but I doubt I'd use it much.

It's kinda on the movie's site, but it's 2/24 in Boston. Yes. One showing.
I would like to meet you in person, but the movie would require me to get Friday and Saturday off, and that's not happening. I've only been at my job 13.5 years, why should I get the perks the asskissing backstabbing couple does?
Maybe some day! Ms Jessica lives 20 miles from Boston. She could be my wingwoman.

I couldn't quite figure out the date for the Boston showing? Wouldn't mind meeting up with you for it, just a thought...

Also those Valentines were awesome! Even better than the Onion ones from a decade or two ago I decided to repost here before they ran out the old memory hole:

Are you sure you can't sign up for the free trial month of Netflix streaming? Or since you're a disc-member it doesn't apply to you? (Make a new email!) I'm biased as the kind of (dumb) person who is a fan of The Punisher but the Marvel Netflix series own, for me they are worth the price of admission by themselves, add the whole other lot of movies they have and it's reasonable even for my third world wallet.

Pets and snuggles for Killsies! Or the still-beating hearts of her enemies, whatever she prefers.

Honey, you posted the Triumph video twice, leaving me to ponder which Sparks song it was. Don't leave me in suspense!! At Tumblr I've switched my Trump hashtag to the one that Bianca del Rio uses: #CheetoFucktard.

Congrats on Her Killsiness gaining weight, at least! David's mini-panther Rosie has lost some weight and was just diagnosed with anemia, possibly due in part to fleas. This caused him to totally freak out and I had to talk him down from the ledge with assurances that he was NOT in fact the Worst Cat Dad Ever. Once again, a far cry from the Dogs-Only Guy from a few years ago. :)

*scoffs* Like I would ever use any other program besides Photoshop? BTCHPLZ. ;)
01:29 AM ET (US)
Lils, do you think a chromebook could run ?? If so then that'd solve your Photoshop needs in one.

I have a Dell, but I -love- Windows 10 that came with it, so my opinions should be ignored, since I'm clearly some sort of windows-liking weirdo, haha. To be fair growing up with Windows ME and going from -that- to Vista will do that to you.

I've been in Mac land for a while. I'd suggest maybe a used Macbook but it might be a lot for you to relearn.

But HP really left a bad taste in my mouth, back when I was using Windows, admittedly a while back
01:56 PM ET (US)
(BTW, I read your previous comment to David, who loved it as much as I did.) Disregarding the extent of built-in obsolescence in most laptops--HP most definitely included--the extent of crap you're putting up with is wholly unacceptable, especially with the price you paid. I've had this HP laptop for about seventeen months, and apart from having annoying-as-fuck 8.1 installed, I haven't had any problems with it, and it cost less than $250. Maybe do some searches at big box retailers for laptops in your price range with the highest customer ratings? Also, could Chromebook be an option for you? There isn't enough juice to run Photoshop so I couldn't get one (though Chrome remains my browser of choice), but if you're just browsing, perhaps that's a possibility? Please, other Friends O' Bill's, chime on in here!

I wouldn't go that far. I'm hoping that the Dems who are at the inauguration give Obama a standing ovation as he's sworn out, and then all leave. The orange-faced meltdown would be awesome.
02:52 PM ET (US)
Speaking of Richard Nixon, I read that Trump's approval ratings are at 37%. That's the lowest of any president since Nixon after Watergate. I can't be the only one indulging in idle fantasies about the inauguration being bombed and the 60 Democratic members of Congress who are refusing to attend being the only ones left to run the government.
04:14 PM ET (US)
I was just looking up cat years in human years at the Purina website--Sophie is apparently 76--and JSYK, they say Killsy is 84. Both of them well within their Golden Girls years yet! I can envision the sitcom already: our two feline dowagers asleep at opposite ends of a bed for 22 hours. :)

First message of 2017! To go with all those new entries of yours...erm... ;) Way to make me worry, bro. BTW, if you haven't read my LJ in a while, maybe you could swing by sometime...?
