UI sicilianhitlist screens this post

This is less of a welcoming entry these days, and more of a "damn you, spambot, stop leaving anonymous comments all over my journal" type of post. Not that I, uh, don't appreciate the poorly-written compliments these bots leave; it's simply that I want to keep them all in one place... screened, preferably.

That being said, I don't mind poorly-written compliments from human bloggers, either. Or well-written compliments from human bloggers. Hell, I'd even accept a compliment from your cat.

Regardless, welcome.


I'm an aunt as of 10:45pm Saturday night! He's a real cutie -- head full of red hair! He's got his own person mohawk. Adorable!

What's not adorable is the two day drive back to Alabama.

That 70's Show is awesome.

And so is doing nothing but watching TV and hanging out with great peeps.

On the downside, though, I got a pretty nasty sunburn running some errands. I guess walking to a fro in 93 degree weather when you're fair and not wearing sunscreen is a less than delicious idea.

How have I not heard of this little series before?! How awesome this is.

I hope everyone is doing well. I have been. Insanely stressed, busy, and struggling to keep from speaking my mind to my paranoid boss, but all is well.

I'm actually rather stress-free today. A couple of nights ago my fella and I spent a few hours with good friends. Then we spent a few more hours watching TV and goofing on the Internets late into yesterday. We had a beautiful afternoon (after moving) of just us being together, and today I am travelling to visit relatives. As we speak.

My old apartment is completely moved in now. It's pretty awesome. Now I can't wait to get my new apartment up to par.

...Huh. My desire to post on LJ has quickly and strangely sucked itself away.

I hope I get to choose who gets to spank me. ;)

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Sunday I donated bone marrow to watchword in a life-saving procedure (300 points). Last Thursday I punched yokittycupcake in the arm (-10 points). In March I didn't flush (-1 points). In August I ate my brussel sprouts (1 points). In October I committed genocide... Sorry about that, chocoincognito (-5000 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-4710 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!

Tim Burton + Johnny Depp + Alice in Wonderland = LOVEFEST
Walt Disney Studios announced an ambitious, re-make/sequel heavy slate of up-coming films, with a generous helping of actor Johnny Depp. Depp will team with director Tim Burton once again for a live-action/CG mix adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, in which Depp will play the Mad Hatter, for release in 2010. Depp will also reprise the character of Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth Pirates of the Carribean film, as well as play Tonto in an up-coming remake of The Lone Ranger.

Don't tell me that no one else is even the least bit excited about this! Now, I'm not the squeeing type, but with news that Depp would be playing the Mad Hatter... why, I might just make an exception!

And to what brought me to this little tidbit was a random reminder of an unrelated series I enjoyed. I was hoping to discover if plans of a Tin Man sequel had ever been considered past the writer's strike. And while it doesn't seem all terribly likely at this point (now that the buzz has faded the chances grow slim) I discovered something even better. Rumours go that the same group of people responsible for fashioning Tin Man are doing an Alice in Wonderland miniseries with a similar style! That deserves two exclamation points!!

How crazy is it that I find two separate sets of awesome on a story I adore while searching for something else entirely?

Right now, I do believe Sci-Fi is working on another mini series from the same people who worked on Tin Man. I can’t remember exactly what it is and I’m too lazy to look it up but I believe its Alice in Wonderland.

WTF Videos

Welcome to my first installment of "WTF?!" videos. Today I present Electric Six's High Voltage. No further comment is neccesary.


I can defeat 24 5-year olds in a fight.

I've been house, puppy, and cat sitting. It's been nice, but I've been doing too much funnage and too little school work. Darn this Spring Break 'fun' mentality. I've got a crapload of work left to do, but I can't seem to force myself to do any of it. I can't do my Excel assignments, because my sister has 2007 and this is still the 2003 book. Hey, I wanted to finish the last class while I still had used books. They're switching to 2008 next semester. My lab book is just boring calculations left, but the problem is that things are adding up in a couple of labs, so I have to be in the lab to redo them. Booage, man. Booage.

As for my drafting class, I just dunwannadoitwaa. Waaah. Maybe tomorrow, eh?

I have a feeling that life's going to stand on its head these next couple of months. I better get some good sleep tonight, because buddy, life is waiting around that corner.

I've lost my will to type.

Mabry &

I needed tonight -- all of it -- like you wouldn't believe. I've got a lot I want to type about, but I just don't know if I can. Hey, though. I randomly went to church tonight. Awkward, public faith and myself, but this was... comfort. It's a lot to say and I don't want to, though, if I were to properly explain all of my afternoon. So I'll just say this: my friend's uncle's a skeez.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

The processor still reads inputs, executes the ladder program, and updates the output status table files, but without energizing the output circuits. This feature is often used after developing or editing a program to test the program execution before allowing the PLC to operate real-world outputs. Variations of the test mode can include the single-step test mode, which directs the processor to execute a selected single rung or group of rungs; the single-scan test mode, which executes a processor operating scan or cycle; and the continuous-scan test mode, which directs the processor to continousously run the program for checking or troubleshooting.

Some processors have a three-position switch to change the processor operating mode. In the RUN position, all logic is solved and the I/O is enabled.

HA! Take that, silly meme! The closest book to me always is (and probably always will be) a text, lab, or reference manual. But here, have the selected four sentences of the closest nonschool related text:

But although their intentions are good, they can get carried away in what they say and do; they sometimes don't stay cool and reasonable. In my speech to the Aisan Development Bank delegates, I stressed the importance of calm, reason, self-restraint, and order. I think we can settle these protests through democracy and law."

Yang Shangkun: "Your speech went over well with the Party.

Speaking of the Party, people who hate Rosa Parks made me mad. I'll go more into that another time, probably tomorrow. I need the therapy of typing without actually saying what it is I want to type about. So I'll fill the gap with other things of interest. At the very least, interest to me.

Speaking of interesting only to myself: my pets rock! Speaking of rocking, I sure could use some sleep. That would be awesome. Goodnight.
