1. entrenous88 has more patience than me. How do you people who only show 10 entries per page do it? I want to be able to scroll back to that (theoretical) entry I saw this morning but can't remember whose it was, nownownow!

2. grammar_glamour got to see snow falling for the first time. (I, on the other hand, slept through the snowfall several states away from her, and woke up to a world that my roomie, maeyan, describes as "very Ansel Adams-esque.")

3. entrenous88 apparently likes this weird thing called "Spander" or sometimes "S/X"; many people post strange tales of it here.

4. thebratqueen is a h0r and she does not write better Coondergel than I do.

5. dodyskin really loves su_herald. Me too!

6. wesleysgirl is a cheap date. This in no way coincides with why I loves her.

7. lostgirlslair abuses illegal drugs and then says mean things about LJ when she's high. *is shocked*

8. The Whedonverse Multimedia Project works to cooordinate donations of Jossverse related stuff (books, DVDs, cds, etc.) to libraries, hospitals, shelters, and other similar organizations. Awesome.

9. Sofy can get me doughnuts! Tim Hortons is donating $500,000 (canadian) to UNICEF. Also awesome.

10. Tom Lenk (Andrew) has a Live Stage Show that I cannot see (due to the whole not being in Hollywood thing) but would desperately like to. Also, someone needs to smack the webdesigner for Bangin Banana Reviews upside the head with a 16-inch monitor set on 800x600 resolution.

11. Lots of people are really enjoying this friendswap thing.

12. There are Icicles of Doom falling off the skyscrapers in Chicago! *looks nervously at the ones in downtown Indianapolis*

13. luvxander is a Too Depressed Faerie. As I am 12, and in the middle of watching QAF-US episode 4.2, I shall giggle.

14. rubywisp needs to be spanked.

15. The Word of the day is putsch, which does not mean the same thing as putz, despite the fact that GWB is mentioned in one of the examples.

16. shadowscast has some cool things to say about the whole lick/pounce/sexuality/yaddayadda deal.

17. It's Amber Benson's birthday!

18. wyrdchaos has a joke about a nun, a priest, and a camel...

19. idyll breaks my brain/heart with believeable Gunn/Angel set in S5.

20. entrenous88 has a smaller reading list than I, for which I am devoutly grateful at this moment, because insanely sleeeeeeeepy...

You're so right about those Bangin Banana reviewers! Hello, even at 1024x768, it doesn't fit in the bloody window! Dumbasses. I had to max out at 1280x1024 to see the entire thing.

I realize it's one of my perennial complaints, but grrrrrrrr. Design your site so it fits on my screen, numbnuts!

I'd send you doughnuts except they would probably not be any good anymore by the time they reach you. Heh.

Ain't it awesome that they're donating all that money?? I am still amazed. The money box donations only started yesterday - they run until the end of January - and there's already about 20$ worth of spare change in each of the two boxes we have at our Tim Hortons alone. So I'm guessing if every Tim Hortons in Canada and the US are participating in this, it'll probably bring the total donations from TH closer to 1 million $. Which totally rocks.

Erm, and here I am spamming your journal. *blushes and goes back to being a lurker*

I'm not sure if there are TH in the US or not -- there aren't any in the midwest, but then there aren't any Krispy Kremes in certain areas of the US either, and that's an American chain. wolfling and I have a TimHortons vs. KrispyKreme war discussion ongoing, but I'm limited by the fact that I've never had Timmies, while she's had both. Obviously I need to go to Canada soon -- just for research purposes!

There are some. Possibly closer to the Canadian/American border, but I'm not sure where, as I haven't travelled enough to know. But on the paper explaining the donations that they've pinned to the message board at work, it says 'participating Tim Hortons restaurants in Canada and the US' and so there must be. ;-)

I have never had Krispy Kreme. It'd feel like betrayal. *giggle* And Krispy Kreme is very very new to Montreal (where I live); I think the first one that opened here opened just a bit over a year ago. At least, that's when I first heard about it.

'Research purposes' is always the best reason to visit another country. ;-)

Near the border would make sense. Plus yay for legal notices that remove all doubt!

Didn't know there were KK's up there. Yet another excuse for research!

FWIW, wolfling, who's had both, says the signature Krispy Kreme doughnut (glazed, served hot if you can get them direct from the shop) is in a category by itself, but for other flavors, Tim's is better.

I so want to see Tom Lenk's show, it looks great. He needs to tour. We need to send him money and fruit baskets and enticements to tour. I can practice my begging.

12. There are Icicles of Doom falling off the skyscrapers in Chicago!

I hear rumors that the number of deaths from shovelling driveways has hit 4 already this year--what's the toll out by you?

*Kicks self* Oh wait, that's not funny. Damn!

mpoetess

2005-01-09 02:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

It's scary that I can't tell whether it's funny or not either -- suppose it depends on where it applies. Like in Chicago (or at least the 'burbs) I can totally believe there are deaths from shoveling driveways (heart attacks in older people, hypothermia in stupid people...). In places that got an inch on the ground for the first time in 20 years, I'd say funny, because not likely to be true.

I haven't actually heard of any cold weather related deaths in Indiana this year unless they were traffic accidents, but I'm more likely to read national news via the web than I am local news via the newspaper these days.

I'm in Chicago--yeah, I think those are real numbers (although the papers aren't really following it that closely). There certainly were actual deaths from shoveling driveways last year, mostly in older folks.

You're right--I'd find it harder to believe in say, Texas.
