I take a few weeks away from the journals -- where all trouble here starts, I'm telling you now if you had any doubts -- to sort out the raging headaches and bruises, and somehow things have managed to get quite worse than when I left. I've seen on television that your constant state of aggravation is not healthy. Some strange bald man named Doctor Phil makes a living telling people they're being stupid (I consider this a bright future career opportunity for myself -- and I am much prettier than Doctor Phil to boot), and that they should simply calm down. Well, all of you should calm down. I haven't seen so much running about and carrying on in all my life.

Not that there was much of a population to be doing the running about and carrying on in Limbo, but this is what English class has told me is alliteration. Or a simile. Or a hyperbole. I'm almost sure it's one of those three.

Perhaps we can return to our regularly-scheduled mishap, natural disaster, and/or terminal boredom now. On the other hand, I hear the weather's nice in Acapulco these days.

And who likes Acapulcans, anyway? We ought to go there and share the cloud of misery hanging over us day in and day out. Perhaps our mere presence could stir up a nice blizzard -- possibly even a karmic blizzard, if we've been at our usual lows. Otherwise I'm sure there's no end to the havoc we could cause, and it would be much more interesting than sitting in class pretending that causing havoc isn't what we do best.

That's what I've been saying for ages. Mad, the whole lot of you.

Well, it's a commonly-held fact that you are the most reasonable of all our suitemates. Perhaps even of all suitemates period.

That's a little bit of a frightening thought considering.

From: [identity profile] x-snowflake.livejournal.com
This is true. But of all my suitemates you do not have a distressing tendency toward yellow, dragons, glitter...

I'm sure you see my point.

Well, I'm Irish. Of course I'm the most sensible.

Are Irish people generally very sensible? I had the impression that they were quite angry, actually.

Then again, I see Irish people mostly on television, in between showings of Doctor Phil.

That depends on how drunk the Irishman you ask is.

We really need to get you some better TV shows, 'Yana. Doctor Phil is nearly as bottom-of-the-barrel as it gets. He's like Jerry Springer on 500-milligram fascism supplements.

Doctor Phil is just misunderstood, that's all. I mean, he is a cruel, arrogant little bald man, but at least it's amusing and straightforward.

Besides, I get lost too easily if I watch the soap operas, and I seem to have outgrown the children's programming. What else am I supposed to do to keep out of trouble?

Well, there's Law & Order reruns on every single hour of the day, if you look hard enough. And we have about thirty gazillion movie channels and DVDs coming out of our ears. Even I don't have any trouble finding something decent to watch, and I've seen a lot of stuff already.

Doctor Phil is decent! In a humiliating others, feeling-sharing Oprah's friend kind of way, anyway.

He's better than that Maury fellow, who's always going on about teen boot camp and how shaving off girls' hair makes them follow orders. (This is obviously patently untrue.)

Yeah, but this is like saying it's better to suffocate than be electrocuted. You just need to avoid the talk shows completely, that's the only real solution.

There's some really cynical cops on Law & Order, you'd probably like them . . .

let's see...not much yellow, no dragons....and I'm out of glitter.

so, nothing applies to me! yay!

I count general bad taste and atrocious judgment against you, personally.

As close as nature can make me! And common sense, of course, which isn't at all a natural thing.

Are we not counting roommates, because personally I feel I am quite sensible, 'Yana. No disparagement inteded to you of course, Terry, just trying to clarify.

And are you both going to be joining Jubes and I for movies and what not on Thursday for the early b-day thingy?

Date: 2004-11-16 07:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-siryn.livejournal.com
Of course you're excluded. You're quite sensible usually. Your boyfriend on the other hand...

early b-day thingy? But I thought her birthday was the 17th... *looks at calendar*

From: [identity profile] x-kitten.livejournal.com
Of course, it could be posited that I'm not sensible about him, but, well, we knew that. :D

Late early thingy. Her party is on Friday, and we're celebrating on Thursday, even though her party is Wednesday. Just go with it.

Not counting roommates. (Of course, there is that dragon that Jay is apparently teaching to fly, so please see my comment re: vegetables to him.)

The movies for her birthday? Does that mean I can skip clubbing? Okay, I'm in.

vegetable comment noted, but somehow I think it won't be doable. He does like vegetables, sometimes, but mainly as garnish. Stew, veggies in stew he likes. Salad, not so much.

Hey, skipping clubbing was the original point, so I bet you can if you want.

Well, you know, just so long as he isn't developing a taste for, say, flesh. Because I hate that about dragons.

What? Don't give me that look over the internet you always give me when I'm being unreasonable. It's just he doesn't like me and I prefer being prepared in all situations.

I'm a bit like the boy scouts, really, without the boys or the organisation. Or badges.

He'd like you fine if you'd give him a chance. He's still afraid you're going to bash his head in with a pillow while he's sleeping one day.

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!

I'm calm! Ignore that exclamation point. Calm as a very calm thing, that's me.

From: [identity profile] x-siryn.livejournal.com
A calm thing like Miles on 50 pixie stix in a row?

Date: 2004-11-16 05:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
Is Miles on pixie stix a very calm thing?

(No, if you were wondering. I've seen it. Or, rather, I've seen the trail he leaves behind.)

From: [identity profile] x-siryn.livejournal.com
I thought perhaps you had come up with a new definition of calm in order to apply it to yourself.

Date: 2004-11-16 05:12 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
That would be silly. I just changed my mind instead. :)

Why, did you have a preference?

Nope, just trying to keep track.
