technical difficulty

LJ is the hated milk machine, everybody hates it now

I don't have 'incest' listed as one of my interests. Do you know why? Because I am not interested in incest. Of course, I said nothing when they came for the incest-fic people, because I was not an incest-fic person, and when they came for people whose interest list is just a bunch of made-up bullshit, there was no one to speak for me...

Last night at the laundromat I hurt my back lugging around my 400 pounds of dirty clothes. Here is a version of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" that I sang to myself, with my hurt back.

Very superstitious
Writing's on the wall
Very superstitious
Ow my fucking back
Thirteen month old goddamn
My fucking goddamn back
Seriously, what the fuck
What the fuck, fuck, ouch

When you believe in things
That you don't understand
Goddamn it, OWWWWWWWWWWW
Superstition goddamn shit


There's more, but you probably get the idea by now of what happens every time I move or get up or do anything. On the upside, though, my clothes are all clean, and due to my body not wanting to make any motions of any kind, I got plenty of sleep last night. I tell you, you make one fucking joke about sciatica and you're paying for it the rest of your life...

Hat Poll Day 4: Poll Hatter

We're down to the Elite Eight, and have seen some of the most hotly contested battles of the entire tournament. There were some truly shocking results, but that's why we actually play the game, and we're all learning a tremendous amount, not just about hats, but about each other. I think I can safely say that this poll is not just the most important thing I have ever done in my life, but the most important thing anyone has ever done in all of human history.

There was also one killer of a match, which came so completely to the wire that I was forced to make a judgment call: the coonskin cap/shtreimel match exactly tied, at 21 votes each. I kept hoping someone would come by before the deadline and break the tie, but it didn't happen, so, in a move that will probably make no one happy, I've decided to give it to the coonskin cap, which got to 21 votes first. I feel like I'm perverting the purity of the research here, but what else could I do?

Let's get right to it. Thank you for aiding science, and your photographic guide to the contenders is Collapse ).

Now VOTE! VOTE AS HARD AS YOU CAN! God and man are counting on you.
