|what kind of vodka?
Here's another little bit of random.
So I'm at the store with my friends, getting ready for a barbeque, and we're in the liquor aisle. And I spot a kind of vodka I've never seen before. Effen Vodka. "Hey Will," I called. "Wanna drink some Effen Vodka?"
Will looked back at me, confused. "Yeah, vodka's good."
I pointed at the bottle, and said, "Alright, we're gonna have some Effen Vodka."
After he looks at the bottle, he grabs it and points it out to our friend Jon. "We're gonna have some Effen Vodka tonight, Jon!"
Jon reads the label and shakes his head at the two of us.
Hooray for Effen Vodka!
(Incidentally, it was good stuff.)

|a conversation from work
Not that I actually work at B&N anymore, but I just thought it'd be funny to mention.
A co-worker and I were attempting to figure out who the awesomest black superhero was, and we started by going down the list of those who's names began with 'Black'. We ended up talking about Black Goliath, and we ended up switching subjects a bit to talk about Atlas, formerly Goliath. And I mention that he used to be Power Man.
His response was, "Wait, he used to be Luke Cage?"
"No, he was always white."
"So he used to be the White Power Man?"
"Man, if he was created after Luke Cage, I don't think they thought that through very well."

|Not a lot of shaking going on...
If any of you heard about the earthquake
, I'm fine. I was just heading to sleep when it started shaking. A couple of snowglobes broke from the quake, that was it. The power outage was far more distressing, due to the fact that it was all kinds of humid. But then it started pouring. Also, I live in a walkup, so I wasn't stranded or anything.

I kind of wish I was dead right now.
Had a bad dream - every girl I was interested in since high school dropped by the store to note that I was just as much of a loser as they all thought I was when they decided they weren't interested in me. If that sounds more linear of a dream than normal, I was also watching Ducktales during my break, and Scrooge was apparently moving his fortune with the help of Frankenstein.
I need to quit. I need to quit bad.

Internet down. Stop.
Forgot to pay cable bill. Stop.
Posting from grandmother's house. Stop.
Thankfully, bought Superman the Animated Series. Stop.
Will be back soon, hopefully. Stop.

Me: "Hi, what can I get for you?"
Customer: "Grande cappuccino, and one of these sandwiches." *waves vaguely toward FIVE different sandwiches*
Me: "What KIND of sandwich would you like, sir?"
Me: "Alright." *goes to cut the sandwich in half and toss it on the grill*
Customer: "And I'd like it cooked all the way through, please."
Customer: "All the way through!"
Me: *twitch* "Alright." *rings customer up*
Co-worker: *bangs filter to empty old grounds, starts to steam milk*
Customer: "Do you guys have to be so loud?"
Me: *assuming customer is just bitching to himself, ignores him*
Customer: "Do you guys have to be so LOUD?"
Me: *turns to another customer* "Hi, what can I get for you?"five minutes later
Me: "Grilled Chicken on focaccia!" *turns to another customer, helps customer out*
Bitch Customer: "So how am I supposed to know my sandwich is done?"
Me: "Hold on just a sec, ma'am." *turns to Bitch Customer* "We called you for it, it's right here."
Bitch Customer: "So if I hadn't come up, it would have just sat there, and gotten cold?"
Me: "No, we would have called you again."
Bitch Customer: "But you didn't call me the first time."
Me: "Yes, sir, we did."
Bitch Customer: "Well, I had to come up myself to get my sandwich, what if I didn't come up?"
Me: *starting to shake* "Then we would have called you again."
Bitch Customer: "And if I didn't hear you again?"
Me: "Then we would keep on calling until you come and get your sandwich."
Bitch Customer: "Well, that's not what you did."
Me: "I have other customers in line, sir." *turns back to other customers*
Bitch Customer: "It's a good thing that I came up to get my sandwich then." *walks away*fifteen minutes later
Me: *helping a customer*

Me: "We have a tray right over-"
Bitch Customer: *dumps his plate next to the register, along with his empty cup, used napkins, and open sugar packets*

| My challenge to you is: Assemble a superteam from your various fandoms.
Your team must consist of the following:
(1) Team Leader (could be anyone, but must have good leadership skills!)
(1) Warrior (Ronon, Faith, Hercules)
(1) Smartypants (House, Giles, Hermione)
(1) Hottie (Brian Kinney, John Sheppard, Amanda)
(1) Comic Relief (Frannie Vecchio, Wash, Xander)
All your superteam members must be from DIFFERENT fandoms. I will count SG1/SGA and Buffy/Angel as different fandoms, as well as Marvel and DC, but I'm not going to split Marvel and DC into all *their* different fandoms; this meme would be way too easy if you could just fill all the slots with different superpowered people.
Whether your team has a 'theme' (all girls! all Brits! etc.) and their scope-- whether they fight vampires, serial killers, invading aliens or work to prevent littering-- is up to you. *G*
Leader: Corsair (Marvel comics - he's a space pirate)
Warrior: Westley (the Dread Pirate Roberts!)
Smartypants: Veronica Mars (She's a Neptune Pirate!)
Hottie: Ruby Heart (from Marvel vs Capcom 2)
Comic Relief: Jack Sparrow
I don't know what their purpose would be, but goddamn it would be fun to read. Ruby Heart's in there just because she's the only hot pirate I could think of.
The real Teen Titans
Leader: Robin (Teen Titans animated series)
Warrior: Eli 'Weevil' Nevarro (Veronica Mars)
Smartypants: Gertrude Yorkes (Marvel - read Runaways, damnit)
Hottie: Dawn Summers (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Comic Relief: Skankabelle Zero Hopeless-Savage (Hopeless Savages)
I imagine they might be sort of purposeless too, but less apt to run around committing crimes.
Good, by any means nessecary
Leader: old man Bruce Wayne (Batman Beyond)
Warrior: Tara Chace (Queen & Country)
Smartypants: Gregory House (House)
Hottie: Emma Frost (Marvel)
Comic Relief: Xander Harris (Buffy)
Originally, the leader was going to be Wesley Wyndham-Pryce, when he was all dark and stuff, and old man Bruce was going to be the Smartypants, but I didn't have any comic relief, and while Buffy and Angel as separate fandoms are allowed, I'd rather not. Also, if you think Xander wouldn't be a fit, IIRC, he was the first one to advocate killing Ben to defeat Glory.
Leader: Cyclops (Astonishing X-Men)
Warrior: Wonder Woman (upcoming Wonder Woman movie)
Smartypants: Fred Burkle (Angel)
Hottie: Faith (Buffy)
Comic Relief: Wash (Firefly)

|My favorite wrestler
I realize that this will interest approximately NONE of you on my flist, but I would like to mention that Alex Shelley is one of my favorite wrestlers, ever. Depending on my mood, my number one favorite.
My friends IRL that watch wrestling never understand why. So I submit to you, whoever may actually be reading this, two pieces of evidence.
1) From Alex Shelley's official website
, the Q&A section.What made you get into wrestling?
Honestly, the whole reason I wanted to get into wrestling was because I wanted to be a superhero, one of the X-Men in particular. However, at the age of 11, I realized my chances of developing mutant powers weren't so good. Around this time, I saw Shawn Michaels for the first time as a babyface, and thought "Ho. Lee. Shitttttt." He was out there doing all sorts of flying moves and deep armdrags and moonsaults and planchas. That blew my mind. From there, I was made up. Wrestling was the way to go.
Let me make that clear. When he discovered the he wasn't going DEVELOP SUPERPOWERS, he dedicated his life to professional wrestling as a reasonable facsimile. That is AWESOME. Alex Shelley > Logic.
2) One of his moves is called the "Skullfuck". THE SKULLFUCK. He wraps his legs around his opponents shoulders, and with the back of their head resting against his crotch, proceeds to HUMP THEM INTO THE GROUND. He is moving his hips up and dow, effectively FUCKING THEIR HEAD INTO THE MAT. Homoerotic? Possibly. Awesome? Definitely.
Really, my only problem with Alex Shelley is that he is younger than me. Which makes me feel kind of strange to admire him - not that I don't, but it feels somehow... wrong.

|Pain! Pain I must share.
Recently, I've been reading stuff from girl-wonder.org
and When Fangirls Attack
. I found this link
OH MY GOD MY HEAD HURTS.
Someone tell me that's sarcasm? Or irony? Or something not excruciatingly stupid?
Because right now, I'm reading that and it is making my brain try and jump out of my fucking skull. Basically, I'm reading that, and what I get out of it is that because of annoying manga/anime fans that try and adopt Japanese customs and culture, he hates the Japanese.
I could understand hating the Japanese for other reasons. Racism is often kind of dumb, but this is... oh jesus fuck it's so stupid.
This is like if I said, "I don't like Eminem, therefore I hate black people."
That. That's what I'm getting out of this. I like reading G-W and WFA because as it gives me different perspectives. I think it does me some good, and helps to broaden my horizons and look at things from a different angle. SO WHY DO YOU ATTACK MY BRAIN WITH THIS LINK?!

|a meme, cause I'm tired.
LJ Interests meme results
Arrowette was easily one of my favorite characters in Young Justice. I tend to love archers, and the backstory of having a superheroic stage mom seemed so original, I couldn't help but fall for the character. I really wish she'd show up in Teen Titans, and have a little competition with Speedy - there's actually a fic for this out somewhere.
- chris benoit:
I watched wrestling when I was a kid, and then stopped for a while. When I came back to it in high school, WCW and the NWO were the big deals in wrestling. And then, I saw the guy known as the Canadian Wolverine. He touched upon all the things that I thought were awesome about Logan when I was a little kid (well, except for the claws), and he was a damn amazing wrestler, too. How could I not love this guy? I actually cried watching him win the World Heavyweight championship at Wrestlemania XX.
- denver broncos:
I was living in Colorado for a while, so I got to see a lot of Broncos games, and they grew on me. I used to hate on them a lot when I was younger, and they were really popular in Hawaii. Then John Elway retired, and all of a sudden, it became kind of hard to find Broncos fans in Hawaii. Plus, they have Ashley Lelie on the team (for now), who I used to watch when he was playing for the University of Hawaii, and they have Jake Plummer, too. More on him later.
I was never interested in Buffy. I thought it was kind of stupid. Why would I have wanted to watch Angel when I didn't even like the show he started off in? I did, however, like the X-Men. And I used to in a comic book store, where I could read comics for free. So, I read Whedon's stuff on Astonishing, and suprise suprise, I enjoyed it. Then, one of my friends decided that I had to watch Firefly. I finally relented, and read comics while it was playing in the background, but then I heard something. A voice that commanded my attention. A line that, quite possibly, changed my life. "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"
- guy gardner:
One punch, baby. I grew up on Hal Jordan - even if I wasn't reading much DC as a kid, I knew that Hal was synonamous with Green Lantern. I got really interested when 'the greatest Green Lantern of them all' went batshit psycho. I started to get into DC, and began to really enjoy GL stuff. I loved the concept of the GLs, space police with the most powerful weapon in the universe, that ran off of willpower. And while I enjoyed reading old stuff about Hal, there was some jerk just itching to get my attention. And Batman knocked him out cold with ONE PUNCH. Guy, you the man.
- jake plummer:
I don't remember the year - possibly 97, or 98. For some reason, even though I've never been into college football, I decided to watch the Fiesta Bowl. And there was this scrappy QB playing for the Sun Devils that just wouldn't quit. He'd throw, he'd run, he'd get hit, but he just kept going. I had already been into the Packers for a while, so I thought that he reminded me of Favre. Plus, he had a damn cool nickname. Jake 'the Snake' Plummer. Just like a really awesome wrestler!
- kevin smith:
Kevin Smith is the man. Maybe he's not the greatest director in the world, but he can write like nobody's business. Unlike a lot of Kevin Smith fans, my first exposure to him wasn't Clerks. I'd heard about it, and dismissed it as sounding dumb. But then, I saw Mallrats. I loved it. It was just a damn funny movie, that I could watch over and over again. And Stan freakin Lee was in it! It was clear to me, right then, that Kevin Smith would go on to become my hero - and he did. Plus, he's holding it down for fat dudes.
- mick foley:
See what I said last about Kevin Smith? The same applies here to Mick Foley, and more. Both Kevin Smith and Mick are both seemingly average guys, who have become great successes. For Mick, it took blood, sweat, and tears. Lots and lots of blood. Not only was he willing to sacrifice his body for the fans, but he was entertaining on the mic, too. And then, I read his book. Have a Nice Day was just amazing. Two of my passions in life are wrestling, and writing. Seeing Mick do so well at both made me feel like I could do anything if I put my mind to it. Mick Foley is really the closest thing I have to an idol.
I'd been to a few plays for school. I'd seen a musical or two on stage. I enjoyed West Side Story as a movie. But I wasn't really passionate about any of them. So really, the only reason why I watched Rent because it was $20. One of my friends called me up, and said that Rent, a musical he'd heard was excellent, was coming down here, and the first two rows were first come, first serve for $20. I was totally there. I love doing the whole waiting in line camp out thing. I hate when places don't let you do that. Anyway, so, after waiting in line for 3-4 hours to get tickets, I changed clothes, and went into the concert hall. And I walked out a changed man.
- shawn michaels:
The Showstopper! I still remember when he kicked Jenetty through the plate glass window. I hated him so much when I was a kid. And then when I came back to wrestling when I was in high school, I kept hearing about how the WWF had this really awesome group of guys, who were just as cool, if not more so, than the NWO. I couldn't believe it. But D-X was, indeed, just as cool. And then, before I realized it, as I was more into WCW at the time, he was gone. But all was not lost! For HBK returned, better than ever! And I actually got the chance to see him live! Exclamation points for everyone!

So, wanna hear about my day at work yesterday? I knew you did.
I get to work about 20 minutes early, and sit outside for while instead of knocking on the door so someone lets me in. Thre's a white car parked in front of the store, and it starts backing up. There's a crunching noise, and I wonder if it backed up into the lamppost behind it. The tires start squealing, and the car flies forward... over the curb, and right through the front window of the store.
That was how my day started. Following that, we spent the next four hours cleaning up the magazines, taking out the broken magazine racks, and cleaning up the broken glass. We finally opened up at three pm, after we moved ALL the magazines to the back. We didn't just box up the ones that were shredded by the glass or ran over by the car, we packed them all up. And I stood in the back, stacking the boxes everyone else brought.
The sad thing is, it was about twice as fun as anormal day at work.

So pretty much my entire friendlist has been thanking minarya
for giving them LJ roses. Or hearts. Or something pretty. Anyway, I'd gotten one of these roses too. And I thought, oh, this is nice. I wasn't partuclarly sure who it was, but I had ideas.
None of the ideas were Arya, by the way. Just to make the point of this clear.
So, every day, (by every day, I mean yesterday and today) I see more and more people saying, "Thank you Arya!" And I'm a little sad. I begin to wonder, hey, how come she didn't send one to me? I start making excuses in my head - maybe you're only allowed one LJ Valentine gift at a time. That must be it. Otherwise, she totally would have sent me one.
And I see yet another person thanking Arya, so I start to think, hey, how do these people even know who sent it to them. Was there some kind of CLUE, that i'm just not getting? Like, one of the words in the note is Ayranim, or something? Which, by the way, would be an awful clue to give me. Because I'd spend two days trying to figure out how that's pronounced. Because when I got my rose, there was no name on it. Just a funny little note.
So I decide to check the email that LJ sent to me, to let me know about the gift. And I'm poring over the message with a fine toothed com. I want to make damn sure that I can figure out who sent me this rose, to put this mystery to bed once and for all.
And right above the cute message, it says, "You have received a LiveJournal virtual gift from minarya"
