04:38 pm - Must Use LJ...
Second post in almost as many years:

So...first question:

Does anyone have a copy of Dr Horrible? I seem to have missed the internet phenomenon,and that makes me all sad :(

More ramblings-Mummy movie, elizabuffy rocks, RPGing, and ergonomics hurt my armCollapse )

08:54 pm - Hey world....

There are still a bunch of you who have me friended. I take this to mean that either you are very bad at pruning your flists or you are better friends than I deserve.

Anyway, I don't know if I'll be coming back to LJ any time soon...I have this weird guilt thing going on where the longer I stay away, the more guilty I feel for being gone, and it just starts seeming easier to not even visit. Which is stupid, I know. Sorry everybody :(

But I just wanted to say "hi" to everyone. I miss LJ still sometimes...it and you all were a really big part of my life.

Some updates: all about phendog...assuming you remember meCollapse )

So that's the brief on me...now, what about all of you? I've missed so much...but what's going on in your lives?

07:30 pm - I'm Alive!!!!
Hey all! It's (not) Phen! I'm just checking in to apologize for being a very, very bad phen.

I'm all finished w/ school...forever!!!! (we hope) I even have a real job and a real apartment, which I'm currently furnishing. I am, officially, an "adult." Yay me!

I had a awesome week w/ elizabuffy, who loves me tons and tons. She is so insanely awesome. I don't know how I could have made it w/o her.

Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know that I'm still alive and kicking, even if I am a recalcitrant LJ friend.



note to flistians not also on the amazing elizabuffy's flist: this is actually miss eb, as she thought the world needed to know how phen was doing.

Thank you to everyone who gave me LJ valentines btw! One was anonymous, but in addition to the kind anonymous one, thanks to lawyergirl15 and elizabuffy. *hugs* thank you both! And Kim...one of these days I really will have to start catching up with you, I swear!

Thanks...you made me smile, and even though it's now a month later, I just wanted you to know!

01:24 am - PLEASE HELP! Need volunteers to talk to an AI
Hello all!

I'm working on a project for one of my classes, but had low participation, so I was hoping some on my trusty flist might be willing to help!

I need people willing to:

1) Talk to an AI for 10 minutes
2) Talk to the human the AI was designed after for 10 minutes
3) Fill out a short survey comparing the two

All you need is Yahoo IM or MSN Messenger. Both the real person and the AI will talk using the account virtual_girl_11235813 (same name yahoo or MSN). At least 5 minutes will be needed between times to change from human to AI or vise versa. Also, I need to know when to tell either to be on and I'll need to know what account you'll be using so whichever knows to expect you.

I can set up appointments for you to do it this thursday night, friday night or some time on saturday. Please let me know what times you can do it in Pacific Standard time just so we're on the same page :)

I'd really appreciate your help! Here are more details:

moreCollapse )

Please comment if you'd be willing to help! Pass on to any friends who might be interested too...I know this is last minute since the times are in the next few days, but I really need some more participants.

09:05 pm - *dies* stuff I found while googling "Phendog"
So...googling my name today I found out that one of my fics has been translated into Chinese! Um...well they didn't ask my permission, but WOOT! I mean, it's uber flattering, right?

Links here and here.

Of course since I couldn't read Chinese, I had no idea which one.


It seems it's my horrible, horrible Men in Black one (found if you scroll down on this page) *headdesk*

Seriously...of all the stories to represent me in another language, why THAT one?

Also, if I can believe it...the first death by a thon was one of the 10 most popular lj posts in all of april 2005!

Also...this is an interesting tool...though I'm not sure everyone who has their friend of list hidden would appreciate you using it. Still, for anyone who cares whether or not it's truly private, it seems this would indicate it's not.

11:58 pm - When You see the White Flash Duck and Cover...Nuclear Safety for Children

Seriously...no wonder my parent's generation were scared silly...and yet, good luck with the covering yourself with a newspaper. Yep, that'll help.

*L* One of our profs showed this to us...it made me laugh :) Worth a watch!

You know, it's kinda interesting my generation really isn't that fearful of such things. Maybe because we're complacent, maybe because when we were born it was just a fact of life?

04:29 pm - Cinder Ellas
Saw Happily N'Ever After last night (voicers include Sarah Michelle Geller and her husband). Very, Very cute! Though can I just saw that the evil stepmother is HOT? I mean Rick and Ella are cute, but...

And now I'm watching Rogers and Hammerstien's Cinderella as performed by Brandi, Whoopi Goldberg, etc. My favorite song is from this actually (My Own Little Corner). But my mind is exploding...That's great that the queen is black and her husband is white, but how the hell is their son Asian? I mean, I didn't take many genetics courses, but...

Big hugs to trepkos

I got your Christmas card! It was really cute and really made my day...which was good since my day was sucking :)

(and it probably came earlier, but I just got back from break a few days ago and just looked at my mail today!)

08:51 pm - New Year's Resolution...
Get involved again in LJ....

I really, really miss you...so I'm going to start trying to read through and commenting on my flist again.

And...I want to try writing again.

So if any of you even still have me friended, I'll take 3 drabble requests!

And yes, they'll probably suck.

Give me a buffy verse character or pairing, a type of fic (friendship, smut, humor, angst, etc) and a word.

First three...gotta start slow!

UPDATE: ALL THREE REQUESTS TAKEN! I'll try to write them tomorrow! :)

12:22 am - Out of the mouths of senior citizens...
Visited grandpa in the resthome today...

There was a man there with alzhiemer's next to us where we were eating lunch in the dining room. He asked several times who we were and all.

But as we were leaving again, my mom mentioned again that I was her daughter and he leaned over to her in what seemed to be all seriousness and said in a grave voice:

"Well, you can't win them all. I'm sure you did the best you could."

*LOL* Am I that unappealing?

Spray on Condoms - I'm not sure what it is about this...ensuring the spray gets everywhere? fitting TOO closely to, uh, hold what it needs to hold without breaking? I don't know...just somehow seems like a bad idea to me.

Bad Sex Awards are out - I'm sure if you look hard enough they're posted online somewhere ;^)

10:04 am - This made me smile...
Unfortunately, I just recieved it at 2 am...

(The following is an e-mail from the past, composed on Monday, December 19, 2005, and sent via FutureMe.org)

Dear FutureMe,

How'd grad school turn out? Are you done yet? *sigh* If it's bad, I don't want to know.

Anyway, here's a command for you. Wherever you are when you get this, whatever you're doing, stop for a minute. Get up. Go find a friend and take them to go get ice cream. Smile. Have some fun.

Okay...now back to your regularly scheduled life.

Er yeah...that's when I still believed grad school might be doable in a year and that it might not suck.

So...now to find a friend for ice cream tomorrow. *L* that'll kill the diet!

06:41 am - What's up Seattle?
So it snowed in Seattle...and now the snow is turning into ice.

BUT OMG!!!!!! This city does NOT know how to deal with snow. People getting in accidents, panicking, even abandoning their cars on the middle of the freeway. And the rumor is that the city only owns two snowplows and no sand trucks or anything else. REALLY?

I mean it doesn't snow here often, but still, wtf people, don't let a few inches of white bring you to your knees! If Montana behaved like this the whole state would have to put out a "Closed" sign from mid-October to May.

And I fly out tomorrow morning (early) for a job interview. It's in sales so I don't even know if I want it, but still...I hope they let the plane off the ground. *le sigh*

10:35 pm - It's official...
I finally threw out a LUSH product for the first time.

Avowash soap. I just CAN'T like it. It smells too much like an old lady's bathroom that's overly perfumed. I tried and tried to use it up but it wouldn't melt fast enough so I round filed it.


And the funny thing is that avobath bath bomb is one of my favs.

Wasn't going to share any more craig's list postings for a while, but this is too good not to!

Sadly, I am probably the only female engineer who will read this ad, and I'm not answering. (Giggle...my specialization is actually in robotic control and manipulations *L*)

10:57 pm - Today on Yahoo Odd news...
No disrespect to the late great Steve Irwin, but Aussies get entirely too friendly with the wildlife.

Of course that's better than the wildlife in getting too friendly with the Swedes.

Sick of paying your taxes? Then prepare for a visit from the dancing eunuchs!

There are entirely too many internet clubs in the world now. Meet the Dull Men's Club. Featuring statistics on which way baggage claims are most likely to rotate. Except wait...those numbers don't quite add up. Does that mean the rest are not rotating at all?

How to make annoying people more annoying? Give them a musical shirt.

Need some loonies? Go win $10,000 (CAN) at the annual Rock Paper Scissors World Championship. [oops! just looked it up. apparently that happened over this past weekend - you'll have to google to figure out who won]

Think it's not a big deal? Check out the promo!

And think RPS is too easy? Try RPS 25, or worse RPS 101.

06:15 am - Cruising Craig's list for entertainment....
Is it just me or is this guy just a little TOO obsessed with his virginity?

I'd think this was just some straight guy trying to get laid...but the last line is so cute!

This man either isn't an English speaker or is seriously high. Judging by the weird dog pick I have a guess as to which...

Can someone explain the hardwood floors reference on this one? Sometimes metaphors just go way too far...

Women, is it just me or does this make you feel a little bit like a piece of livestock?

Better than being a wild deer during hunting season, I suppose.

Or this. Seriously...I'm thinking of swearing off men!

05:39 am - PHEN BOUGHT A CAR!
Specifically, this car. Why yes, it is huge. But so pretty! Two tone leather seats! Of course my bank account is now all sad.

Yes, I'm around...just sort of busy and in hiding. This whole quarter I'm practically living in a little computer lab trying to program an iPod. (well a really bad version of an iPod anyway) I'll come out some day again I promise.

But I just had to squee about my new car!

So I guess Amber Benson is on supernatural tonight?

That's cool!

BTW, does anyone remember "The Inside"? Short lived crime show by Tim Minear and Jane Epenson that was killed by FOX two years ago? Really gritty stuff. I finally got to see all of the unaired episodes though...and there's a great one w/Amber Benson!

The whole time I kept wondering if it was her or not...looked like her, but it was so different, and evil!

I really recommend catching that ep if you can. Called "The Perfect Couple." Unfortunately, since it suffered the wonderfalls and firefly fate it wasn't aired, and I don't think the dvd's came out (?) so it's hard to find.

10:00 pm - that's just weird...
So I see Lifetime did a TV movie called Phenomenon II.

As far as I can tell it's as much a sequel to Phenomenon (that John Travolta one) as Evil Dead II was to Evil Dead.

Basically? It's a remake with a different ending. What kind of egoistic thing is that? Someone didn't like a box office movie so they redid it the way they thought it should be with a much smaller budget and lesser known actors and, you know, made for tv?

Okay...that's scary. I didn't even realize until I was writing that I could be describing Joss and Buffy. *is traumatised*

But anyway, in this case I think it's a bad idea.

That's okay...I'm supposed to be in bed asleep anyway. Time to shut off the tele!

One of the UW profs is in this (no, I don't know which one)...I've only watched the first episode, but it is kinda funny! Good spoof of Angel anyway. Check it out. *grin*


I like the orange of mystery ;^)
