Well, the guy in that picture is obviously an alien. Me, I'd rather sit next to an alien than a greasy creep, but not all women are as into scifi as I am.

Parents are coming over for dinner at 5:30, so cleaning a little bit, watching Burn Notice, and stuff. Plus browsing the web for GI Joe: Retaliation/Marvel Noir as well

I always just pray I don't have to sit next to anyone on public transportation, that's my philosophy.

Emmers, I'm sorry to hear about Cell, although (and I apologize if this sounds callous) I know it would have been a hardship for you guys to take him to a vet, so I'm also glad that it happened now rather than after you'd spent all that money. I know it's tough, having been in that predicament myself a few times.

In totally unrelated news, this is a crap day and if I don't get some coffee or something soon I am probably going to overturn my desk, tear ass out of the office, and run down the highway naked flipping everyone the bird until someone finally shoots me.

No that isn't callous, it's reasonable and was something Brando and I where talking about last night.Vet visits alone, without any medication or possible surgeries or even if we decided to euthanize him, would have been at the very least $60. So taking into account any possible further costs, which at this point in Cell's life would have pretty much been euthanasia, and that could add up to well over $100.

If Cell had been young, even 5 years younger, it would have been more reasonable to pay for treatments but at 15 years old Cell very well could have naturally died at literally any time.

It may sound callous to someone else, but it's just the reasonable facts of what was going on. Cell had a good run and I know Brando adored that critter.



Bad day is bad, can you catch a break to grab some coffee? Hire someone to run down the road naked FOR you?

My boss is at a meeting for another hour or so, and the nurses will probably let me go and get something quick.

Just had my flu shot. My arm hurts.

A student just came in whose last name is "Bowser". You can imagine all the terrible jokes I am definitely not making right now.

If my last name was Bowser I'd be so proud. Speaking of last names, the thank you card that we got in the mail from that wedding a little while back was addressed to 'Brando and Emmers Derpington(Brando's last name is not Derpington, I wish it was)' so I think they believe we're married..?

Bring ferrets to work and make a big bandage out of their warm cuddles?

We have relatives on both sides that refer to us as Penny and Sam Vimes, rather than the correct Penny Dreadful and Sam Vimes, since I kept my last name. Even after being corrected, they still do this, so I've just given up.

I also went to a wedding where I'd been communicating with the bride via email a lot, and on the table cards we were addressed as "Penny and Sam Wolf", since I have "wolf" in my email address and she assumed it was my name. I was like LOL I WISH. So much cooler than either of our actual last names.

I had to walk to class in the rain because the bus never showed. It's a 15 minute walk, and it's actually not bad if the weather is nice (mild, not rainy, not wearing heels).
I was late for class and wet.
Now I'm waiting for the bus back (it had better come) and damp. I also desperately want McDonalds, which means I'm PMSing.

And I haven't had any coffee or tea or anything remotely caffeinated all day,

Let's you and me go on a coffee run.

In the rain.

Possibly naked.

Sounds good to me. I certainly wouldn't want to do a naked coffee run on a sunny day. Parts of me would burn that I never want to burn.

I'm on the bus now! Soon I will be at my car and on my way to dunkies or honey dew. I can't remember which is easiest to pull out of this time of day.

If I hadn't been late for class I could have gotten a cup of hot water from the Starbucks in the basement of the library and used my emergancy tea supply.

Is it so fucking hard that when your kids make a mess in the apartment hall to clean it up?

Edit - This is the mom who hits on us, she just got a dog, add another tick to the list of stupid shit she probably can't afford.

I can only assume that have an invisible sign over my head that reads "SIT NEXT TO ME". On at least 3 occasions I have been on a bus with only 2 other people, and the next person to get on sat in the seat beside me instead of any ot the 34 empty ones. WUT

Sounds like my day on Monday. Except with cola instead of coffee. Hope you get caffienated soon.

Firstly, sorry to hear about cell. it's always hard to lose pets

Secondly, for a minute i thought that it was literally addressed to "'Brando and Emmers Derpington" and was thinking that it's a fun nickname thing and had nothing to do with being married... then I got what you meant. They might think you're married, but it also might just be a simple mistake. (I got a wedding thank-you card from a girl I've been friends with for 15 years, and my name was misspelled on it. I KNOW she knows my name, so I suspect it was her husband who was writing everything out.

Yes, it must be because there is always crap on the stairs of Gf's apartment building. And the upstairs neighbors never clean it up. I think they think magical faeries clean it for them.

If your last name was 'Wolf' that would require you to wear a three wolf moon tee at all times and remind everyone as to why.

I imagine that name business can get frustrating, especially if your choice to keep your original name is for personal beliefs and it's a situation you don't feel respected in.

I don't mind walks like that either, but when your tired and hungry and just want to go home it's not quite as pleasant as in the warm sunshine while you take your time leisurely strolling home.

Thanks Mai, I appreciate it.

I WISH.
If Brando's last name WAS Derpington I would so change my last name if we got married. No one ever pronounces my last name correctly.

I've heard it pronounced 'ma-lone-ee' and 'mah-loon' and no matter how often I correct a teacher or someone else it just doesn't change..

On the wedding invite the brides mother wrote out the envelope and spelled Boyfriends name 'Branden'. Ain't no thang, just kinda silly.

Since the two of us have been living together now for...really over a year they probably assume it's a safe bet to address us by the same last name. That and I am not familiar with the bride other than a few brief conversations prior to her wedding (the invite was for Brando and 'guest') so I doubt she even knows my last name in the first place. It was just something we giggled about and where like "MRS.EMMERS MAHLOONEY DERPINGTON",
