...Yeah, I used that same stupid joke before.

But my eljay still means a lot to me (obviously) and it didn't feel right to have the same layout I had five and half years ago (holy crap, do you realize how many "me"s that was ago?!).

So this, while not particularly original, is not the same theme at which I've stared for five and half years (and was damn proud to make, I might add-- and I'm still proud of it, just... ready for something else) and looks fresh and shiny and new!

I've got some tweaking to do, but this is a great start, especially when a big good change is finally gonna come.

Hello friend! Feeling glum? Allow me to cheer you up with a visit to We're not going to buy anything, just enjoy some reviews.

Yeah, yeah, I'm aware that most people discovered funny Amazon reviews years ago, but for me it was only TWO years ago and there have been some particularly good ones I've discovered recently. This is an art, you know. I tried to stay away from the most well-known ones (Tuscan Whole Milk, horse head mask, Three Wolf Moon t-shirt).

PRODUCT: Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer

CHOICE REVIEW: "If God does not exist, then how is it that a banana fits so perfectly in this banana slicer? CHECKMATE, ATHEISTS!"

PRODUCT: Bic Cristal "For Her" Ball Pen

CHOICE REVIEW: "I'd really like to buy a pack of these pens; but I probably need my father's or husband's permission first. Like I do with all my financial decisions."

PRODUCT: Fresh Whole Rabbit

CHOICE REVIEW: "Like many suburban homeowners, I like to kill and eat the wild animals that populate my backyard. To keep it sporting, I hunt naked, with my teeth and long sharpened fingernails as my only weapons. I've feasted on squirrel, raccoon, vole and numerous songbirds. But no matter how long I lay spread eagle and motionless in the hot noonday sun, I have never been able to outwit and catch any of the plump and juicy rabbits that hop just outside my reach and then bolt for the woods when I leap forward with a blood-curdling shriek. I have chased them at a dead run through the yards of the many unoccupied homes that surround mine but the pursuit always ends in frustration. But no more, thanks to Amazon. Every week, I order a fresh whole rabbit and affix it to a remote control car that is operated by one of my children. This way, I get the thrill of the hunt, and when the car's batteries are exhausted, I can leap upon it, bury my teeth into the rabbit's soft flesh and perform my ritual victory dance right there in the Walgreen's parking lot."

PRODUCT: 8 & 10-Row Aluminum Bleachers w Central Aisle & Railing

CHOICE REVIEW: "So I bought these bleachers last night. They have arrived today already after I paid 1K for shipping, which is pretty decent when you think about the size. I'm very happy with my purchase. I put it right in front of my TV and it's the perfect piece of furniture to watch sports and sitcoms on. It gets a little uncomfortable at the top row as my head hits the ceiling all the time, but I'd trade this for a good view of my living room!"

PRODUCT: BIC Cristal Stic Ball Pen

CHOICE REVIEW: "As a discriminating Meth user, I'm always disappointed with the colored pens
I steal occasionally. After serious thought to quitting my habit, imagine my delight at finding this product! The easy twist removal of the pen itself from the tube got my interest but the clear tube, that was the clincher! Now I can see exactly how much residue I have left to scrape when my funds are low, and the plastic is very resistant to heat, whether using foil, or a torch lighter! Kudos to a handy product!"

Comment with "Trick or Treat" to this post and... well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, one sentence fics, etc. etc.).

The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

If you, like me, love screwing around with the user and comm icons for your LJ and have been annoyed as fuck that LiveJournal did something to their goddamn coding so that they don't work, THERE'S A SOLUTION!

From [Bad username or site: @], posted at [Bad username or site: @], there is a magical, wonderful
Tiny Icon Generator!

Malionette's tiny icon generator

If you have no idea what the hell "custom" icons are but are now intrigued, there are some popular sets here. And of course, the instructions are easy and the generator easier than that. NO LONGER SHALL YOU TOIL UNDER LJ'S USERHEAD TYRANNY.

Long Abandoned Dixie Square Mall Finally Demolished

Walk with me, won't you? Walk with me as we enjoy Dixie Square Mall, the place that turned me on to "urban exploring" (at least looking, anyway) and stalking [ profile] abandonedplaces. I said walk with me... )

I guess you could say my love affair with DSM also led me into This American Life since it was an episode someone mentioned in [ profile] abandonedplaces that got me listening. That episode, by the way, is one of the best ever and you need to listen to it right now. Go here!

Also on my wishlist is that the LiveJournal graphic for this will include MY religion, you know, the real reason for the season? Thank you.

My wish is not to fall prey to such contests because I am a greedy, greedy, greedy little pig.


alivemagdolene: (Snow White)

Once upon a time, there were two princesses.

“Why are we princesses and not queens?” asked one asked one day, indignantly.

“Why do we have to be a part of the monarchy altogether? Doesn’t it just reinforce the unjust class system?”  wondered the other princess.

“I’ve got an idea! How about we run away and become Robin Hood together!”

And so the princesses ran away, living a life of adventure affecting positive social change and toppling the concept of wealth without work.

Although our Thanksgiving is in September, why miss out on an opportunity to share some goodwill. Here's happy vid spam, some old, some brand new, all joyous.

Having enjoyed Mad Men Yourself Dot Com, I retooled mine a little for "authenticity" (correct mole, pentacle).


I like to think of it as the opening for my own late '50s/early '60s television show ala Bewitched (appropriate, no?):

Hello, kind soul! It's not really the year 2000 as I type this, that's just a handy marking point. But enough chat, to the point!

By contributing to me, the walking charity case, you're ensuring I have some wonderful and unexplained money in my account. I'm not looking for hand-outs, I'm looking for work, but since work is scarce, I (seriously) can't turn down the well-intentioned with a few extra bucks. I offer two facts: #1, I have a long memory and #2, this fallow period is only temporary.
