Green Room - Week 24 - Weekend Edition

Have you noticed that those "hilarious video of scaring strangers around Halloween" never seem to be taking place in areas with Stand Your Ground laws on the books?

It's probably just a coincidence. ;)

If it's not, maybe they can start marketing that as a selling point of that extremely controversial law - that no one will be stupid enough to try to "prank" you if you pass a law that gives you the go-ahead to shoot!

I've been a few videos making the rounds lately that make me glad that I wasn't in that situation, and wasn't armed... because the results wouldn't have been pretty! ;)

***

Speaking of results - and how pretty they are - there is a poll going on right now. YOU get to decide how pretty, or hideously ugly these results are going to be! That's right YOU! The person reading this. No one has ever trusted you decide anything in your life before... or at least not since "that time"... but this isn't "the incident"... that's in the past, just like your therapist has been telling you! This time, you can make it right! This time you can vote to save your favorites and keep them in the competition! That sounds good now doesn't it? http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/790427.html

There is also a Last Chance topic out there to write on: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/791087.html a Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/791309.html and a Home Game thread, for those wanting to play: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/789542.html

What fun do you have planned for your weekend?

Yay Frist! You're dead to ellakite, but we all knew that, right?

As long as I get cookies out of it, I suppose it's a fair trade.

And then I can haunt him... ;)

It's Girl Scout season, there's sure to be cookies hiding somewhere - I'm sure Gary can hook you up, if Ellakite fails in his cookie duties!

Secondity!

I'm maybe halfway through the main tribe, then I still have most of Redemption to read. So far, so good!

Plans for the weekend still include hand-stamping Christmas / $WinterHoliday cards. Beyond that, who knows. :)

I've never checked the laws before chucking a shoe at someone. Or smacking them with my purse.

If you've seen the "Chucky at the bus stop" video, I'm *really* surprised that he didn't get things thrown at him/shot... that seems like a really dangerous thing to do, to come at people with a fake knife at night.

I've not seen any of them; this is the first I've heard of it. But I don't think I want to see a video with Chucky, either.

I'd personally expect either knives or a brick-inside-a-purse, but yeah, night is not the time to go messing with people -- even when you're just walking home, everyone's super cautious about passing other people and people barely even greet each other.

My weekend is pretty much half done :( The downside to being from the future, I guess...

And so far I've spent all of it winning Best Daughter points by working in the garden at my Mum's house. Yay, almost summer!!

LJ just ate my comment. The keys are sticking on my laptop and Male Housemate didn't switch the TV back to cable which means I'm sitting here in total silence like the grave. I NEED MY TV FOR BACKGROUND NOISE ESPECIALLY IN THE EARLY MORNING!!!!!!!!!!

This outburst brought to you by She Who Wasn't Expecting To Be This Irritated About a Simple Thing But Is.

Ahem.

I'm working 6 days next week because of some kind of computer training I was chosen for, unbeknownst to me, until yesterday.

Whee?

The thought occurred to me in the middle of a mishap at work (don't ask). In that case...understandable :nodding:

He still hasn't told me how to switch it back yet :p

*hugs* Good luck! Can you switch the TV back? In modern setups there's usually a button on the remote, and in my setup it just involves untwisting the cable wire from the back of the current device (or that device's converter) and moving it to the device you want to use.

This involves three separate remotes -- one for the cable box (aka our old universal remote which worked with our old TV), one for the flat screen, and one for the speakers. His computer is hooked up to the flat screen, too, and the controls for that are also on the speaker remote. There are so many buttons on it it makes me dizzy :p I was telling SO that I was petrified to start playing with the speaker remote this morning, so...

I've house-sat for a friend with a system like that. I made them write out careful instructions for the two things I was likely to do and then I only pushed those buttons all weekend long.

I imagine that I'll be spending my weekend sleeping, reading, and hopefully more sleeping. My cousin is flying in on Sunday though, to visit my sick mom and help out around my house, so that'll be nice.

The fun for my weekend? After two weeks of tummy bugs rolling through the family, I am now on Ventolin for a cough that I've had for three months, and my daughter was diagnosed with the flu this morning.

Don't ask me where she got flu FROM, as we haven't LEFT THE HOUSE in two weeks.

But apparently I can look forward to the flu rolling through the family. Whee!

...and our (postponed because of tummy bugs) house inspection is on Thursday. Guess the odds of being able to postpone it again...

My plans for the weekend? I'm taking my computer back to the shop this afternoon. I think I have a significant piece of hardware failing. The Stately Manor is going to be a quiet place over the next few days.

Congratulations to your daughter! They should tell everyone they're going to enjoy being engaged for a while before they start the wedding planning, that was some of the best advice I got.

Oooh a book festival? That would be dangerous...

This weekend, I am doing laundry, vacuuming the rugs, washing dishes, doing general clean-up, shopping for groceries, writing a piece for LCI and attending a local Oktoberfest celebration in the rain.

In that order.

I thoroughly intend to enjoy Oktoberfest despite the weather, but as you can see, I have *MUCH* to do before then.

I have plans that involved sleeping in and writing a flash thing. The cat had plans that involved waking me up and being petted. Guess which one of us is closer to success?

*NOTHING* is more important than petting the cat.

Hopefully fun will be my first attempt at pumpkin ice cream. Other than that my weekend is mostly normal errand stuff.
