And what have we learned from our poll?

--Making up polls randomly is fun but rarely makes sense.
--Divinity is not fudge.
--The Battle of Hastings happened in 1066, not 1099. Something fun must have happened in 1099, but it probably didn’t involve screaming Normans. (I just typed “screaming Normas”. Ahem.)
--Numinous, according to my dictionary, is “indicating or suggesting the presence of a god-- spiritual, divine; inspiring awe and reverence—holy.” But I do like the vague and unreal vast number definition as well.
--Pie is good. Pie may well be the ultimate good.
--Nudity, either topless or full frontal, will be an integral element of my cult. By popular demand, you see.
--My cult will also involve, in no particular order, sheep, Swedish fish, omega points (awesome), cheese logs, cocoa, the Battle of Hastings, more nudity, tea, and silliness. I think I can do that.
--It will be difficult to simultaneously commit all seven deadly sins, despite its high score. Sloth just knocks out the will to do all that wrath-ing.

Now I just have to design and build a Penance Hat. If I get into div school, I’m buying a fuzzy Pope mitre.

All right, let's try out this "poll" feature of paid LJ...

[Poll #450457]

(I haven't been posting much, because I'm awaiting the full bringing-to-life of my brand spankin' new Lappy)

Sal is going to be here over her spring break. March 13-19, if I'm correct. And I can't find a damn thing to do with her during that time! (Besides get really embarassingly drunk on St. Patrick's day on a half-glass of Bailey's.) No shows...No concerts...No funky exhibits...

...Which leads me to ask y'all. She'll be spending the majority of daytime with college friends, but twin and I have claim on a fair amount of her time, and I want to go do something with it.

If it were summer, I'd go for the drive-in movie, or out for a harbor cruise, or whalewatching or something.
But it'll be March. Which could mean daffodils, and could mean four feet of snow.

Any suggestions?

I'm typing this via [ profile] sen_no_ongaku's computer, because the Lappy will no longer even reboot. So I'm trying to take my mind off of that: between some memage and going to donate platelets today, I should have a fighting chance.

Here is the meme:

"I would like everyone to go down this list and pick ONE from each pair that you think describes me the best. Then copy this and post it in your own journal to see how your friends view you."

dominant or submissive
logical or intuitive
social or loner
kinky or vanilla
cute or sophisticated
kitten or puppy
warm flannel sheets or sleek satin
leader or follower
quiet or talkative
spontaneous or planned

and let me add two:
bacon or ham
hands or brain

I have a dilemma.

For a while, I've wanted to use the Heifer Foundation's practice of giving a charitable donation in place of an actual gift. Specifically, I want to buy a sheep in honor of my friends. (Sheep! Yay!) However, I know that the actual moment of unwrapping something that someone thought of for you and you alone is also rewarding, and sometimes far more important than the actual gift.

How do you think people would react if I bought a sheep instead of giving lots of presents?

I don't know how I'd respond if it were me. I think I'd feel selfish and feel bad about feeling selfish, knowing the recursion cycles of my brain. I think I'd probably still kinda want a thing.

But if I bought a sheep in honor of my friends, and then got small--very small, probably--things on a personal level, is that okay, or is it still cheap?

It's awkward because this year I have the disposable income to actually purchase said sheep. (Or a llama! Lllllama!) Never was able to do more than "a share of a sheep" before, and that's just kind of gruesome.

I am having visions of baked apples. But all the recipes I can find are for baked apples stuffed with something sweet. No, I want savory baked apples; hollowed slightly, with the insides chopped finely and mixed with sausage and onion, sauteed, then stuffed back in and baked all together till they're nice and tender and yummy.

But I can't find this kind of recipe. And I don't know if this is even feasible as a recipe; will the apples fall apart? does this taste like crap in actuality?

Anyone have suggestions? Besides "go stick your head in a pig". Didn't work.

Fat-free half-and-half.

The hell?

What's in the other half?

Anybody know how to fix a leaky faucet?

Help me to decide what [ profile] sal_sal will get for graduation! It's going to be some kind of box o' good stuff...but what Kind of Stuff? What would you have wanted, heading off to college? An inflatable chair? A collection of "World's Greatest Polkas" for stereo wars? A voodoo doll for the professor of your choice?

Any suggestions will be considered...anything to make her college life easier, her dorm room cooler, or just freak her out. Mwah ha ha.

And, for your link of the day, Jon Stewart gives a commencement address.

Next post, answer to the lyrics meme! Stealthmuffin, if you wish, you can tell me which ones you did NOT get.

Right. I'm sleepy and bored, so the remaining costumes must wait till after this pointless-yet-fun little meme.

same old lyrics meme )
