Twitter Weekly Updates for 2009-09-06

  • I hate the scrolling on CuteFilmNerd's laptop. Seriously – self scrolling w/o input from me? Who the fuck thought that bullshit up? #
  • Left bedroom window open last night to help w/ heat. Woke up to strong smell of smoke from LCF fire. Damned if I do, etc. #
  • Road leading to JPL is closed due to fire nearby. May not be open tomorrow due to non-containment & poor air quality. Will be surreal day. #
  • RT @LATimescitydesk Remember to check our map for updated info on evac areas, fire's movement: #
  • @stephenfalk Smells like the air quality in my neighborhood too. in reply to stephenfalk #
  • @GraceD Thanks, hon. Doing my best. And I agree with you! XO in reply to GraceD #
  • @veganbakesale Don't know about convincing your friend. Maybe the timing isn't the best, what with SoCal being consumed by fires & all. #
  • @veganbakesale Mild December temps might be more convincing. #
  • It's official – received automated call that JPL will be closed on Monday due to poor air quality. Lab is not currently in danger, though. #
  • @pie_r_round I'm fine, thanks, hon. It's moved northeast of me, but it's huge. Very sad actually. Two firefighters have died. #
  • @veganbakesale I totally understand. πŸ™‚ #
  • @pie_r_round How was the show? I missed it again! 😦 #
  • @GraceD Re: your Cursebird report – that may be the funniest thing I've read all fucking day! #
  • Spent unplanned day off doing most of the cleaning I'd meant to do over the weekend & didn't. Sudden cleaning energy FTW! #
  • However, I am now exhausted. Just in time to go back to work tomorrow. Air quality supposedly better @ JPL. We'll see if my lungs agree. #
  • In other news, my kitchen & bathroom look phenomenal! Bedroom? Not so much. At least it's not a disaster area any longer. #
  • But I can work on my bedroom over next few nights. After I get leg transplant. Cleaning made legs say ow. #
  • Waiting @ bus stop near my home – light fine ash in the air. Can only imagine what it's like @ JPL, which is about 10 miles from my place. #
  • Continuing to keep folks in fire areas & firefighters in my thoughts. Please do the same. #
  • Sorry if I'm "all fire, all the time." In my defense, it is practicall in my back yard. If I had a back yard. And it was 7 miles long. #
  • @shawnp0wers Won't you please mow my mythical backyard? Pretty please? *bats eyelashes prettily* #
  • Time lapse video of the Station fire, taken by a JPLer. JPL is the cluster of buildings center-right in foreground: #
  • @shawnp0wers I just realized, I don't have a favorite swear word. Though I do often say "fuck" or its variants. in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • RT @LATimescitydesk: Today's air quality index: #
  • RT @DiningInLA: RT @thesneeze : VISIT LOS ANGELES: We may not have the best barbecue — but we are an ACTUAL barbecue. #
  • @mariancall *raises hand* Fire and drought over here. Whee? in reply to mariancall #
  • @Janiece65 You need to take their calls! They're armed and stupid! in reply to Janiece65 #
  • @Janiece65 (Not against the 2nd Amendment – just wish it stipulated that stupid people couldn't have weapons.) in reply to Janiece65 #
  • @sotsogm Jealous! It's 91 deg and smoky. Not top down weather. 😦 in reply to sotsogm #
  • – @hentosz – Like this? #
  • @scalzi Fancy-pants calendars in fancy-pants cell phones help with that. As does my crappy calendar in my crappy cell. Just sayin'. in reply to scalzi #
  • @scalzi Also – go you! in reply to scalzi #
  • @hentosz Dude, I'm already terrified of your Nerf gun (as evidenced by my photo) – don't make me even more scared! in reply to hentosz #
  • @shawnp0wers But do you eat the nail bits? in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • RT to enter the @genreville relaunch ARC giveaway of @scalzi's @subpress novella The God Engines! #
  • @susanffvk Yep, Gmail is down for me too. in reply to susanffvk #
  • @TranceJen Gmail status: in reply to TranceJen #
  • @wilsonworld Boy, I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue. (Seriously, I hope your day gets better.) in reply to wilsonworld #
  • @sotsogm This is in keeping with the whole "week keeps getting better" thing, right? Elijah Wood STILL looks like a little boy to me. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @stan7826 Good luck! in reply to stan7826 #
  • @jerisisco Mmmmm! Cookies! Thank you! NOMNOMNOM in reply to jerisisco #
  • @jerisisco @sotsogm @random_michelle Vegan peanut butter w/ lots of nuts!(Note to self: teach self how to make vegan PB cookies w/ walnuts.) in reply to jerisisco #
  • @jerisisco Agree with @random_michelle – one cookie is a must. in reply to jerisisco #
  • @sotsogm Heh. Watched a little of THE ICE STORM last night. Elijah Wood's eyes scare me a little. He looks like a Keane painting. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @sotsogm in reply to sotsogm #
  • @Kayar I'm sorry – that sucks. I hope you find something very soon. in reply to Kayar #
  • @Kate_Baker It seems to be going around. @jerisisco has got cookies – maybe that'll help? in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • RT @abc7: Station Fire update: Charred 127,513 acres, 22% contained, evacs lifted for areas of La Crescenta. #
  • @jerisisco I never feel guilt when I eat cookies, virtual or otherwise. Which may explain the size of my ass. *shrug* #
  • Dear woman who sat down in front of me on bus: emanating cloud of perfume is bad thing. I'm getting headache from it. Fire smoke is better. #
  • @thc1972 Hugs & good luck to you, hon. #
  • Not ready to go to sleep yet, but in mood to doze as I'm stretched out on my bed checking Twitter. 10-1 insomnia hits when I do go to bed. #
  • @wilsonworld Good luck with both the quitting smoking & cutting back on coffee. I hope today is much better than yesterday. #
  • Crap. I think I'm getting sick. I have a very busy weekend ahead of me – I don't have time for this! Gah! #
  • @shawnp0wers Yeah? And? (As I often say, "I've worked very hard to be as weird as I am today.") in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @iwwthom Don't be shy, Thom. Tell us how you really feel. (Also, totally agree w/ you. Not that that should be a surprise.) in reply to iwwthom #
  • RT @JohnLarroquette: β€œOne of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” … #
  • @shawnp0wers You're assuming we need further proof. Dude, you work for Linux Journal. No further proof needed. (Still – hee!) in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @stephenfalk Check #
  • @DBowen Yay firefighters! And not just for casting ballots while busting their butts saving my backyard! Also for saving my workplace (JPL)! #
  • @Stonekettle @Kate_Baker Correction: original flavor Nyquil is the most revolting shit on the planet. #
  • @pie_r_round @Stonekettle @Kate_Baker As I have never had ipecac syrup, I cannot speak to its revoltingness. #
  • Bloody tired of being bloody tired & unable to sleep due to heat & breathing issues. Oncoming head cold isn't helping.C'mon, meds, kick in! #
  • @GraceD Seems to be contagious. Replace "allergies" w/ "new head cold" and it sounds like my night. Gah. #
  • @GraceD *non-contagious hugs* #
  • @Kate_Baker The adoration of Kate looks unanimous to me, since I too adore her! #
  • Dear bus driver: I know it's been warm & we've had fires & all, but the air conditioner really doesn't need to be cranked up to "high." #
  • @jerisisco Happy, happy birthday! Non-contagious hugs to you! #
  • @Stonekettle With a little Vista as garnish? in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @Kate_Baker Just read about the finger biting. A friend of mine in Thousand Oaks is often at these things – I wonder if he was a witness. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker Also, totally agree with you. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • Stupid cold is turning me into a mouth-breather.I think the internet is contagious – 3 sick UCFers on Twitter? Isn't Wendy getting sick too? #
  • About to get my second cuppa ginger tea (since I'm out of echinacea). Oh, how I love thee, tea! (And crave thee when I'm sick.) #
  • Just spoke with CuteFilmNerd. He is going to @cafeflourish for lunch, which is not far from his work. Happy for him, but I am very envious. #
  • @stephenfalk BF & I saw IN THE LOOP last night & loved it! Plus 2 of my friends worked on it! #
  • @DanteAtkins Isn't "paranoid" Beck's middle name? #
