still not worth it

every three or four months, it seems, Pumpkin Spice will say or do something so monumentally stupid that gives me an absolute gut-busting laugh. ("Don't look!" was the one for today, "I'll see you in court!" was the last one I recall). And while the laughter is great for the five or ten minutes that it lasts, it's definitely NOT worth all the ongoing horror and dread and despair and grief and anguish that he causes the rest of the time.

But, when they make the movie(s) ten years from now, at least it will give them some much-needed comedic breaks amidst all the drama.

Jeff rolled a one, didn't he?

Because, man, it certainly does feel like we're in the darkest timeline. Maybe there's a way to get into one of the other ones.

Speaking of Community... the hashtag/phrase ended with "...and a movie". Any word on that? Because, while the series was uneven, it did have a LOT of good stuff in it, and lord knows we could use more good stuff right about now.

Clark Kent, man of secrets

There should be a story where not only is Kal-El having to pose as Clark Kent, and keep his Superman identity a secret, but he's also a werewolf, and has to hide that, too. (Something tells me that this may have been an episode of Smallville already...)

cpr lizards, hipster beards and keyboard wwwwwwoeeeeeeeees

First, hey, news, I think you need more stories like this one:

(a woman found a dead lizard in her pool, and used cpr chest compressions to bring it back to life. Awesome.)

Second, I've been growing my beard lately, and it's getting to the 'hipster' looking stage, I think. Or maybe 'late 1870s' look. I dunno. I'm both enthralled with it and annoyed by it, so I don't know how much longer I'll keep it going. There are more and more gray hairs in it each day, too. (Not an overwhelming majority, or even near a majority at all. They're more like... people who voted 4th party. They're there, mixed in among the population, but you have to really be looking out for them.) And, yeah, I'm comparing my beard hair color to political affiliations. Welcome to my brain.

Lastly, I'm currently using the laptop, because the main computer is both really laggy, AND the keyboard is ....less than ideal. The following keys on it are 'sticky', where they either don't type when you first push them, or they get stuck and you therefore get multiples of them in a row:
1, e, w

The workaround for the 1 key isn't too bad - you just have to use the 10-key numbers instead. (Although there's no workaround for exclamation points. So when those get used, you get REALLY excited. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
