elfie_chan: MY cup of tea! (tea)
Dear [livejournal.com profile] mistful:

First of all, you are incredibly amusing. However, you have made me crave stroopwaffels. Today, I was unable to help myself at Trader Joe's. I actually walked up to a TJ's employee and asked her where to find the "Caramel Bites" (mini-stroopwaffels) while my husband was in the restroom, and then I actually told him that they jumped into the cart. He was not fooled for an instant, but I am still having stroopwaffels with my tea. They are not at all good for me, but I think they may be helping my headache.


Dear Applebee's:

You suck. You continually taunt me by putting good things on the menu and then taking them away. For example, last year, you had this fantastic pesto-shrimp bowl thing that tasted wonderful. It was on the menu for a few months, and then it was gone, never to be seen again. I think that you have changed the menu again in the past week. You took away the rosemary and olive oil fries. I may never forgive you. Also, I was unable to get my tomato and basil soup with dinner, and I have always been able to get that at dinner before. Both Alex and I are very unhappy. When I went to your website to complain, you required me to put in my home phone number. I am not giving you my home phone number. I will call your toll-free number instead and let you know exactly what I think. I will be polite, but I will be firm. Your food is getting blander and blander, and you also removed the blue cheese topper from your steak menu. Our server this evening was not even aware that you had done that. Stop confusing your servers and me by changing your freaking menu for the worse every month or so. You're turning into just another Chili's or Red Robin. You are no longer my default diner.

No Love,

Dear LJ:
Your administration has caused a lot of drama lately by being a bit hole-and-corner about their business decisions. Please tell them to at least be up front. Also, please tell them to keep the things that make LJ special and different from all the other journaling services out there (i.e. basic, ad-free accounts). Remind me to ask what will happen to my account if my paid service runs out. Many of us are wondering if we'll be shifted back to the old basic account, or if we'll be put on a "plus" account. I don't want ads; I came to LJ to avoid ads. This is making me sad--not necessarily the removal of the basic accounts, but the business-speak we keep getting. I feel like your administration doesn't care about LJ's users. I hope I'm wrong.

Much Love,

Dear Me:

Go drink your tea and eat your stroopwaffels. Your cat is demanding lap time.

My head hurts. Whine, whimper, whine.

Alex is playing Midevil on his PSPuny. It is hilarious. I would want to play it, but my head hurts. Did I mention that I had a headache? Owie. Ow, ow, owie. I still sit here and snicker at the funniness. Snicker, snicker, owch.

In other news, I now have one single-spaced page of Secret of the Single Sock typed. I need to do a little skipping about, I think, in order to get some of the scenes hammered out. I also need to figure out if my main character's great-great-aunt might have been a young woman during WWI. I think that would work out, but I need to get all of my history straightened out and the timeline set out in my head before I can be sure. Flashbacks are fun! Yay!

I am tempted to post the first paragraph of the story here, but it is short. Quite short.

Has anyone else noticed the trend in books of placing "a novel" after the title of novels? I mean, it's as if we, the readers, would never figure out that we were reading a novel without the authors telling us that we are. I have half a mind to title my first book "Insert Title Here: A Book." That'll get it on the best-seller list for sure.

I have almost finished Half-Blood Prince. If my head stops hurting, I may be able to finish the book tonight. If not, I shall lull myself to sleep with Mary Queen of Scots and see about finishing Half-Blood Prince tomorrow. I have my suspicions about who the Half-Blood Prince might be, but no spoilers until I finish the book. *shakes finger warningly at the world at large*

My entries lately have been short and, it seems, without much purpose other than to splatter my babblings across the internet. But, honestly, isn't that what LJ is for?

[livejournal.com profile] brightshadowsky, can we talk soon about formatting my LJ? I have some nifty ideas, but I'm not sure how to implement them without getting a paid account. If anyone else would like to chime in with tips and tricks for LJ programming, that would be charming. I've been to [livejournal.com profile] everything_lj, and I shall continue to peruse that, but if anybody knows some quick-and-dirty tricks for customization, I welcome those, as well.

Loki is mewing sadly. I feel sorry for him, as he is no longer allowed in the bedroom (we can't have one cat in there and not the other, as both litter boxes reside outside of the bedroom). When Mia goes, then Loki will regain his rightful territory, but until then, he must share in Mia's exile. Poor thing. Life is so unfair sometimes. And now Mia has taken over his chair. No wonder he's mewing. His throne has been usurped.

And that's pretty much it for the moment. Except for the fact that Alex made smoothies. We had some strawberries that needed to be used up, and he combined the strawberries in a blender with ice, a little leftover white wine (Gavi), and a little honey. Delicious. I'm going to sleep very well tonight.

A review of Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy will have to wait until morning. Night-night, all.
