Random Saturday Morning(ish) Rambling

I have now definitively established that LJ is not emailing me all of the comments on my journal. So if you've commented with a question or an offer or an accusation or whatever, and I haven't responded, it's probably because I'm completely clueless.

Very frustrating.

I like clues, and dislike lacking them.

Speaking of comments, who was it who told me (in comments somewhere I can't find) that they liked pretty much any music in which the lyrics were particularly significant? I'm all a-puzzle.

Last night Shannon and I went out to dinner at Beckett's, a local Irish pub/restaurant (the restaurant isn't all that Irish anymore, because they took a lot of neat stuff off their menu, but they still have fish & chips, Irish stew, steak-and-kidney pie, and ... uh ... Irish soda bread brought before your meal) to celebrate our combined birthdays. He turned 33 (a very aesthetically pleasing number, though 32 is fun, too, since it is 25) on Thursday, and I turn 35 (yes, I am an "older woman" ... how torrid!) on Monday.

I do believe I now qualify as "middle-aged," but Shannon does not. That upstart young whippersnapper!

Dinner was lovely. I had a steak, but the real excitement was that it came served with asparagus (and mashed potatoes, which I love, but it was the asparagus that made me gasp with delight). I almost never get to eat asparagus, so I devoured it with great gusto. Shannon had fish & chips, miraculously using salt, vinegar, and catsup, all together. Well, not all together, but I generally wouldn't use them on the same meal of fish & chips. He used salt and vinegar on the fish, but catsup on the fries.

That shows how Americanized the restaurant is, that they didn't offer him mayonnaise for his french fries. Heh. *gags*

My computer is behaving very strangely today, with the mouse response time being very sluggish. These kinds of things always worry me. I think it's time to shut all the programs down, restart, and see if the situation improves. Maybe I'll do a back-up, too ... because I CAN DO BACK-UPS NOW! Woo hoo! Thanks to my CD burner! Thanks to kjf and michaelarick!

But first maybe I'll take a nap. *is tired*

*is almost 35*

Old people take a lot of naps, right?

You know about this page, right? It shows all your recent LJ comments, even if there was a problem emailing them to you. It might also help you find things you're looking for.

I think that I might have mentioned really liking music that tells a story or in which the lyrics are strong, though I don't know if I'm the one you're thinking of :)

That was me.

Happy birthday!

That was me.

Now, see, I thought it was you, but I couldn't find the comment. Then I found it a few hours ago, in your response to the "Name 3 songs/artists" question in my poll. :-)

Happy birthday!

Thank you!

In light of one of the very first conversations I ever had with you...

This cracked me right up this morning....there are Just.No.Words.


I hate to say it, but I am perversely attracted to him in this pic. Don't know what the hell the other person's doing, but that porno moustache and the hair and the glasses...*feels forehead for signs of fever*

Also, the camera angle and the hairstyle both contribute to making his head look less jar-like. He has a Dominic Monaghan sort of thing going on.

Definitely - I think you've hit the nail on the jar-like head *sporfle*

Actually, tinalikesstuff has got a Dawsons Creek picspam up, and the Beek actually looks great - in stills he actually photographs better than Josh, to tell the truth.
