Current Non-Annoyance

Why bother with any other forum?
Forum rules
We once roamed the vast forums of Corona Coming Attractions. Some of us had been around from The Before Times, in the Days of Excelsior, while others of us had only recently begun our trek. When our home became filled with much evil, including the villainous Cannot-Post-in-This-Browser and the dreaded Cannot-Log-In, we flounced away most huffily to this new home away from home. We follow the flag of Jubboiter and talk about movies, life, the universe, and everything, often in a most vulgar fashion. All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

Is that the same one posted by your fellow Wash. U. alum? If it is, I enjoyed seeing another of your fellow Wash. U. alums tear into it.
I actually found out about both the job listing and the blog post through a listserv I've been too lazy to unsubscribe from. But now I spent 20 minutes sifting through my Facebook feed trying to figure out who you were talking about and what they wrote (and was not successful). Thanks, Goiter!

What did the second Wash U alum tear into? The job listing or the blog post?

I think the Wash. U. alum who posted the listing (a Balkan) may have deleted it. The Wash. U. alum who tore into it (she shares a name with one of the leads in The Suicidists) tore into it because of the tiny pay and huge workload.

Bought a new TV today.

The old one had a few darkspots, sometimes it wouldn't turn off, and often id have to turn it off then back on to get the hdmi channel to show up.

So going off my good friend Bruce Campbell's advice I went big, bought a 50 incher.

I got a couple of t-shirts with the following designs, and I'm pretty psyched about them.

Found out yesterday I sold my first piece of fiction. For an indie-published anthology with 50% of profits to charity, but it's a paying gig. I am geeked, to be sure. When there's info about publication, I'll post on FB.

So I have a date this weekend with an actress who had a speaking role in Watchmen, among others. So I'm kinda jazzed about that.

Life continues to twist and turn, and twist back again.
