Writer's Block: Book worms unite!

What are the three best books you have ever read and what are the three worst? What made them so good or bad?

Oh my god I get to talk about THE WORST BOOK EVER WRITTEN:
The Ruins by Scott Smith.

W.O.R.S.T. B.O.O.K. E.V.E.R.

I bought this book in an airport, it's a tradition that I buy a book at the airport gift store, and the pickings were SLIM.
This is a huge book, I like horror it should last me the flight.
Turns out I didn't eeven read the book till months after the trip lol
Anyway....THIS BOOK IS SO BAD! LIKE I COULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE WHAT I WAS READING BAD.
Being one of those people who has to finish a book once they start one I tried to tell myself "surely it gets better/a plot forms"
NO And it is a long ass book it has all the time in the world for some shit to start.
The characters are just laughable, the dialog is god awful and when you find out what the big bad "monster" is you'll shit yourself.
Not in a good way.
On the VERY small chance that someone reading this doesn't want to be spoiled I will now use the white text, highlight for my rantings:

IT'S A FUCKING TALKING PLANT!!!!! UNLESS YOU ARE A PLANT NAMED SEYMORE YOU NEED TO STFU! NOT ONLY DOES THE PLANY FUCKING TALK, IT MOCKS WHAT IT HEARS. SO I'M READING THIS BOOK, THESE DUMBASSES ARE IN A GIANT HOLE IN THE GROUND, AND THEY HEAR THE PLANT LAUGHING AT THEM. BUT WAIT IT'S NOT JUST LAUGHING AT THEM, IT SOUNDS LIKE THEIR FRIENDS LAUGHING.....WHAT!?!?! THIS IS SUPPOSED TO SCARE ME? SO THEN THE PLANT STARTS TO REPLAY ARGUMENTS THAT IT'S HEARD THE DUMBASSES STUCK ON A HILL HAVE WITH EACH OTHER AND FOR SOME REASON THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE EVEN MORE SCARY. NO. IT'S STUPID, THESE KIDS ARE STUPID, IT'S JUST STUPID STUPID STUPID.

If you want to have fun, look this book up on Amazon. Go to the reviews and start reading the 1 star ones.
Once I was finished with the book I had to check out the reviews because I just knew there were others out there that had to loath this book. I mean.....just no. It's so so so so so so so bad.

Writer's Block: Book review

What (if any) books would you ban from a high school library? Are there certain subjects that you feel are inappropriate for teenagers regardless of literary merit?

Oh good god, don't even, I was already in a mood today then I log on and see this shit.
Just...no.
I'll go Bradbury on your ass and have his cat claw out your eyes and eat them.
Then he'll heave them back up with a fur ball, I'll make a stew and feed it to you.

Guess who found the shuffle button?

I stole this from xo_taradactyl   who stole it from someone else lol
My niece is always sending me these type of things wanting me to play along and I'm just now figuring out how to use the shuffle feature on my Media Monkey. ( I believe this is called dun ber ber ber lee )
So anyway, I made this one, because the ones she's sent are like forever long, and I have cramps and can't be assed to sit here that long.
(that's a lie, I'm playing Webkinz and am fully imersed in getting my hippo through school)

I'm gonna put you in the pictures babay!Collapse )

Work makes me lazy


So I get all these brilliant ideas while I'm at work.
"OOhhhh I know, I'll but one of those already cooked chickens and take it home and make chicken salad"
Turns into, "fuck that I'm going home and having a peanut butter & jelly sandwhich"
Tonight I started off with buying brussel sprouts (see what you've done xo_taradactyl  )
which has now turned into me looking up all manner of vegetarian recipies knowing full well I'm going to be too damned tired to cook any of these in the near future.

And I know I just mentioned chicken and vegetarian in the same breath, I'm just looking at easy/healthy things.
Our stove is a joke so I stay away from cooking anything (like meat) that will kill me if it's not cooked long enough.
My diet is ridiculous, and haven't eaten veggies on the regular since I was probably 3.
With the sick season upon us I'm taking my vitamins and hoping that if I eat some greens I'll better combat the inevitable.

brb I'm lettin it simmer

I can't find my Michael Jackson gif folder.
Let's just all pretend the Batmobile "they see me rollin' gif is inserted here.
This Is It thoughts follow-


Bask in the moon this way ->Collapse )

Writer's Block: Yes, offense taken

If a friend or relative makes a racist or homophobic remark, do you tend to confront them or let it slide? Are you more likely to confront them if it offends you directly or someone else who seems reluctant to speak up?

I've gotten into fist fights over stupid shit people say.
It's like an automatic reflex that I've had to subdue over the years.
Now instead of kicking someone in the balls instantly, I ask them "really? seriously"
then if they say yes I go ahead and kick them in the balls.
At the very least I make a big scene about it with lots of yelling and screaming.
Long story short:
Yeah, I say something.

Is this supposed to be funny or....

Someone had been recomending that show Weeds to me and my boyfriend for a while now, but it didn't really look like much to me so I've been putting it off on the Netflix list.  Well I finally got around to getting the first disc and......I don't get it.
Like I really don't get it.  The episodes are only 30 mins long and it honestly felt like twice that.  Eventually  I left it on while I tidied up the apartment and if anything at least it motivates me to get off my ass and clean.
Even when Jeffery Dean Morgan popped up on the screen I was like "ugh whatever" which is PRETTY BAD because he is quite the foxy man.  And Kevin Nealon can't keep me interested, and I like him, but just no.

So now I have to tell her in the least insulting way that I think her favorite show is a poorly written badly acted series.
And that we aren't pot heads, because the shit she kept saying while suggesting it makes me think she thinks we are.

The whole time I also kept thinking "man I could be watching Blade Runner right now" so I think I'm gonna do just that.

(we're on the one disc at a time netflix plan so I'm also all "fuuuuuck totally wasted Netflix DVD right there" hate when you get a bad movie and it just fucks with your whole "it's my day off I get to relax and watch a cool movie" vibe, and after that schizophrenic child episode of Oprah yesterday I couldn't handle another sad Oprah with family that adopts all those special needs children then gets murdered, so my "it's my day off and I get to watch Oprah" vibe was totally thrown off too)

Things I should've done tonight

First and foremost I should've taken a bus to see Manic Street Preachers in L.A.
But some unexpected BS ended up happening so I'm glad I didn't spend the money to do that.
But it's still the fucking Manics and I really hope they start touring here more than once every decade.
It's probably best I wasn't there, I would have flipped out and scared them all away.

I should've eaten something other than Key Lime Pie ice cream before I left for work, but that stuff is soooo good.

But it's not all badCollapse )

Boosh gifs


Using the work high speed internet to upload what I've made so far

This is the first time I've made gifs so scuse me if they seem a little herky jerky.
