so. to start:

quiz )

but more importantly: One FBI internal newsletter encouraged FBI agents to conduct more interviews with antiwar activists "for plenty of reasons, chief of which it will enhance the paranoia endemic in such circles and will further service to get the point across that there is an FBI agent behind every mailbox." read the article. free speech zones, etc.

hmm. sfgate seems to carry stories i need to read.

oh, and you know the thing about almanacs? i got one for christmas, like usual, and the next moring we read about it in the paper. apparently i'm a terrorist. then again, i have stated in public that i don't like Bush i hate the current administation. Bush is focal, but it's the whole deal. i just don't appreciate perversion of democracy and freedom, the erosion of my rights, and badly justified, although sorta supportable war. i think it's kinda okay to be the world's police, i just wish we weren't hideously corrupt about it. and that we didn't expect to be hated. people usually seem to dislike the police. especially when the police are killing without reason, extracting protection monies, selling weapons to criminals, and otherwise following in america's footsteps.


sorry, i try not to talk about politics, because i know i'm paranoid, i know i don't have a clear, reasoned argument, i'm just angry, tired, and disgusted. and apparently, canada is turning into america. c'mon guys, i don't want to have to learn spanish to dodge the draft. and to avoid evil. and grumble.

alright, now i'm gonna read boingboing, and add some more things i want to keep track of, or feel you should be aware of.

You represent... desire.
You represent... desire.
You sure are motivated. You have a definite knack
for getting what you want. You always put your
own interests before those of others, and you
almost always find youself being satisfied.
Though you have determination, try some
compassion. Putting others first occassionally
can get you even more satisfying relationships.


What feeling do you represent?

yeah, that's not a great quiz.

How sexually compatible with me are you?
Take the NEW sexual compatibility quiz at LJMatch!


okay. first, i am very compatable with randy from something positive ([livejournal.com profile] kobold). which is okay. but we could never really satisfy each other sexually with that 10%. that's like a mark of doom.

also, [livejournal.com profile] dreamingkat we are miraculously connected by the #58. you and i are least compatable, but most sexually compatable, both at 58%.


whee.

i know, this is long and stupid. i don't really care right now, though.
My journal says I'm 59% masculine.

so. surveys and etc.

Check out my Morality! 71% liberal, 29% conservative
take the test here

behind the cut is a lil' survey i snagged from my brother )

my lungs hurt. and have little spasms. it sucks, and i want painkillers. and i want to eat. food would be good now. my pinky is doing that thing wher it stops being a productive member of my body. stop it. la la la la la. [livejournal.com profile] huzzahuzzah is late to her shift. 13 minutes now. 14 minutes. i'm hungry. and in pain. and grouchy.

last night, a user went insane. it was very upsetting. reallllllly crazy. flipped out on me. and all of the other consultants. and several supervisors. and the assistant lab manager. CRRRAAAZZZY. okay, 19 minutes. 21. i have a hat in my pocket. and i should look for coverage to do, eh?

silly month meme:
so, blah. check your month, cross out the shit you think is wrong, blah blah, all months behind the cut

alright, i'm working on this, and now i feel like analyzing. so here we go.

APRIL:
Active and dynamic. i think i am lazy. i feel there is a great deal of animation and life in me, but at the same time, i'm really really lazy.
Decisive and capable of haste but tends to regret. spot on
Attractive and affectionate to oneself. the phrasing in this is odd. i think i am attractive, in fact i think i'm damn good looking, because i remember thinking i looked bad, and i really hated that. so i put a lot of effort into stroking my own ego, because i feel better when i think i look good, and the trick to that is constantly telling myself that i'd do me. oh yeah, that's right.
Strong mentality. um. gimme a sec. okay, here we go:

men·tal·i·ty
n. pl. men·tal·i·ties
1. Cast or turn of mind: a vindictive mentality.
2. The sum of a person's intellectual capabilities or endowment. (american heritage dictionary)

mentality

n 1: a habitual or characteristic mental attitude [syn: outlook] 2: mental ability; "he's got plenty of brains but no common sense" [syn: brain, brainpower, learning ability, mental capacity, wit] (Princeton University WordNet)

i just feel uncomfortable with the use here. hmm. i don't think i have a strong cast of mind, i think it's pretty flexible, i do think i am intelligent and possess a reasonable amount of knowledge, actually, my outlook is usually about like this, so, uh, maybe i do have a strong mentality. i just don't like the sentence.

Loves attention. yup
Diplomatic.
Consoling, friendly and solves people's problems. my advice has probably never solved a problem. i'll console, i'm friendly, i'll try to fix problems, but i usually don't actually fix anything.
Brave and fearless. i have fears. i think they are rational things to fear, the death of loved ones, failing those i love. well, that and heights, but i've been working on that. and the us government. and i sorta fear nebulous shadowy conspiracies, but i don't think i'm important enough to warrant a sanction. Eiger!
Adventurous. uh. not really. i avoid broken bones, in fact more than i avoid the plague.
Loving and caring. yeah
Suave and generous. i don't think i'm that suave. i think i'm pretty generous though.
Emotional. guilty
Aggressive. see, kinda yeah. but really no.
Hasty. hell yeah, when i'm not too lazy.
Good memory.
Moving Motivates oneself and others. i'm not sure why it's written like this, but yeah, i can do that sometimes
Sickness usually of the head and chest.
Sexy in a way that only their lover can see. hey! i resent that!

okay, so i just discovered Launch.com

and that apparently i have a yahoo account. that i really don't remember making. so i kinda have this urge to just try to log into random sites, just in case i have access. okay, not that much of an urge. mostly i'm gonna listen to radiohead and tool for a bit.
