I am a LiveJournal deserter.

Who doesn't want to be taken seriously? And sadly, I am no longer a teenybopper who writes really bad poetry about the president of the high school drama club. In other words, I just don't fit in. So I'm moving my kingdom (and possibly my archives at a later date) to Blogger.
Currently previous post archives can be accessed at I Can Kick Your Ass at Trivial Pursuit (LiveJournal version).

Stodgy Idiots - TV Edition

Dear crack smoking Emmy members-

What is your damage?

15 nominations for "Desperate Housewives" but only 11 for "Deadwood"?

Three "Housewives" nominated for best actress but no women from "Deadwood"?

And "Medium" isn't bad at all, but Patricia Arquette? For best dramatic actress? Really? She's no Calamity Jane.

And The "The West Wing"? C'mon! That show hasn't been good since Sam and Sorkin left. Sure it has the best cast this side of 1877, but the writers are killing them.

"Everybody Loves Raymond"? Why must you beat dead horses with gold statues?

And to top it off, you completely snub "Gilmore girls", "Nip/Tuck", and "Veronica Mars", three of the best shows on television.

I think I hate you.

Well, I wouldn't exactly say I've been "missing" it, Bob.

Survey finds average U.S. worker spends two hours a day surfing the Web, running errands or staring into space.

Office Space has been out since 1994 and they're just now figuring this out?

It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime, so where's the motivation?

By the way, I disagree with the results of that survery (as I write this from work).

Happy Birthday to the slurpee! Free slurpees for one and all.

Our new red sofa was delivered over the weekend. Pictures to come. We hung new bathroom fixtures in our upstairs guest bath, re-arranged our bedroom and our hanging pictures. AND I made dinner twice in one weekend, which is like, unheard of. Oh, and we forgot Brian's birthday, cause we suck. I'm tired.

Edited to add:

"Hi. My name is Jin and I'm a net addict. It's been 23 days since my last chat."

Where was this clinic when I was a chat addicted college student? I might have actually graduated if I'd gotten some electric shock therapy.
