O HAI



I have ab-so-lutely nothing of use to say today! Therefore, have a glimpse into what I do to entertain myself at work. I write short-short stories to my friend Rachael via instant message. Damn you, 640MB of RAM! *shakes fist at heavens*

from the primeval forests they sprang, shaking off the dirt of a million years, and they lay dormant, waiting until we should call for them. waiting... yet when we at last sent out a call for the dells, they trekked over mountains and through plains, and as they finally came to lie at our feet, proffering their CPUs and their CD-Rs and their color monitors, we proclaimed, "seriously? 640 MB of RAM? fuck that," and fell upon them with hammers.



I don't remember when I took these photos but I figured I ought to use them at some point. Derp.

Also I read this amazing book, My Dearest Holmes, by Rohase Piercy. If for some reason you're as obsessed as I am with straight/ambiguous dudes being ~super gay~ for each other, then you ought to read this. It's actually quite well-written, and while John Watson is written as a bit of a basket-case (what grown military man is going to start weeping at the least provocation?), it's pretty much a really, really great fanfic in published book form. Read it.

ahh man, i love your posts. they are the opposite of boring, even when you think you have nothing to say.
your story made me laugh, it also reminded me of that show from new zealand (the tribe).

I think every fantastic short story should end with the phrase "and fell upon them with hammers." I liked it. Especially the last line (obviously) A LOT.

I didn't even think computers with that little of RAM still existed.

I've had a major crush on really, really bold floral prints lately- and yours is one of my faves :D Especially with the neutral striped skirt!

Ahaha I love your short story! I've missed your witty posts Meg. You are looking amazing, your bangs look super awesome. Yep, this is what the blogging world is for, telling each other how awesome our bangs look. ;)

Hahaha I love that story. As I sit here on my ancient Dell work computer.

I love florals and stripes together. And your hair looks extra fabulous here.

Oh, and the first tow books in that series are "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl Who Played with Fire". I don't know if they'd be your preferred genre, but check them out. They're not what I would normally go for and I liked them!

Michal said...

ahahaha! you crack me up! i think you should start posting 140 character short stories on twitter. they'd be funny. Also, cute skirt.

CAITLIN said...

:) haha! you're funny. i can totally see you writing the shit out of short stories forever and always, if that's what you come up with over instant messanger! and thanks for reminding me to watch pushing daisies (and for saying i look like chuck--i hope i do!). i saw one episode and thought it was pretty adorable, mostly because there are pies and lots of bright colors.

Nicole, Coco Maria said...

Hahahaha, you are too much. I love reading your posts. I wish I could be this funny/interesting/awesome when I have nothing to talk about!
Anyway, this is a lovely outfit, and your skirt is adorable.

I tagged/awarded you for the versatile blogger award (up to you if you want to do one too) but I also thought you'd be interested in seeing the entry anyway because I wrote about Doctor Who <3 http://tiedemanntribe.blogspot.com/2011/04/part-of-who-i-am-some-facts.html
