Random fun linky!

...it might be sad that I described the above as "fun," but it's true. For...me.

my husband will drool.

and how long have you been waiting so that you can post a reply references 'my husband'. :)

and congrats, btw.

So.....it goes under the bay???
Btw, he didn't wait at all.

Thank you!

Didn't have to wait Monk-eypoo - this isn't the only place I post things...
I'm just glad I don't have to call him "fiance" anymore - for some reason we both hated using that word, and were constantly trying to use alternatives such as "betrothed" and "intended" ... which only made most people snort.

Posted by Matt on Mon, 02/07/2005 - 11:52pm.
What, ya gotta problem with the French? ;-)

As if I need to remind anyone, "betrothed" is snort-worthy because it's so... final. Betrothal agreements happen between parents, with no say on the part of the bride and groom.

And "intended?" "Sure, I intend to marry the guy. I also intend to pick up a canteloupe when I'm at the supermarket. But if they don't have any good ones, I'll just give it a miss."

Let's face it; until English comes up with something better, we're stuck with the French words fiance and fiancee. Then again, we've used words like garage and restaurant for, what? 1000 years? without much complaint.
Yeah ...
Posted by Mori on Tue, 02/08/2005 - 4:46am.
I shoulda just called him my restaurant.

Posted by Kris the Girl on Tue, 02/08/2005 - 5:34am.
I love you just a little bit more.

I've been waiting for a site like that. I learned a few things, and it confirmed a bunch of things I already was ranty about. Heh. Look at me; using a comma splice in the previous sentence.
Matt, Matt, Matt
Posted by jcharles on Sat, 02/05/2005 - 4:31pm.
That's not a comma splice. You use the word "and" as a conjunction, so you should be using a comma. This is a comma splice:

Matt is a militant grammarian, he's rather anal about punctuation.

See? No conjunction, just two clauses that could stand alone spliced together with a comma. It pains me even to see it there. Kind of like the misplaced semi-colon in your final sentence. "Using a comma splice in the previous sentence" cannot stand alone and therefore should not be separated from the independent clause by a semi-colon.

It's a compulsion, really. My much-venerated high school English teacher warned us this would happen.

With my real full name I am Agent of The Opposite of Deviant Sexual Practices. Does that make me a prude?

Oh, and Mike's link worked for me. They usually do, y'all have broken machines. :P

With Cebu I am Representative-In-Training of Ladies in Waiting, Cebu Sjöberg.

no, no... MIKE'S links always work, it's MATT'S links we're complaining aboot.

When I was typing it I realized I had forgotten whether it was Mike or Matt. I guessed. Either way, the links always seem to work for me.
Link not work...

Matt's links

I confess, Matt's links never work for me either. They're bolded, but never do anything. Just look emphatic.

I love Mike!
Posted by Saint on Wed, 01/26/2005 - 10:24pm.
It worked for me. Maybe y'all are just doing it wrong. :)

Here, because I find them amusing, is yet another name generator--this one gives you titles, too! My wife is the Marquise of Satanic Altars of Bone. Mine was, uh, considerably less impressive.
Posted by umrguy on Thu, 02/03/2005 - 6:28pm.
Well, the first go 'round: The McNugget of The Matrix, DJ {umrguy} VII. (My full real name was substituted for {umrguy} though.)

Somehow appropriate, given my past history of working for the Golden Arches Mafia :)

Let's see, then there was Vice Boss of The Ridiculous Army of Cow Tipping. ...and Tertiary Attaché of The Ridiculous Army of Films. Oooh, I *like* that last one :)

Well, of course I had to try different variations... that's the kind of thing I get paid for at work. *g*

Here are the titles I've received so far:

Marshall of Everlasting Gobbstoppers, MC Jon "Magic Marker"
Make it so.

Co-God of The Ridiculous Army of Objectivism, Snoop Doggy Jonathan Darren
You smug bastard, you.

Dominar of Seasonal Allergies
Sure beats "Crack Whore".

I love it!
Wait a sec...
Posted by umrguy on Thu, 02/03/2005 - 6:33pm.
"_dominar_ of seasonal allergies"? Hmm, was there a Farscape fan involved with this generator?

Speaking of Farscape, I'd just like to register the fact that I am damned glad for the new "Starburst Edition" collections on DVD - for both number of episodes and price.

Posted by Matt on Thu, 01/27/2005 - 12:53pm.
This is awesome!

The first time I put in just my first name and got, Prince of Man-Dictionary Love, Matt Oswald

Which is also totally appropriate.

The second time I put in my first and last name and got Cleric of Sleeping In, Darth Matt

Which is totally me, too!

As enthused as I am, I will play with this exactly zero more times. I guess I'm fickle that way.
Posted by Kris the Girl on Thu, 01/27/2005 - 9:10am.
I love being:

"Chief-In-Training of Deviant Sexual Practices, Kris The Girl."
I'm in love

Now i'll need to add an igirly-like tag line "I love Kris the Girl!"

and from henceforth I shall be....Mage of Silly People Who Don't Like Random Acts of Violence, Darth Monk Ulf

oh, what is that mike...my link isn't working. it's just bold and i'm pretending that it's an actual link? ;)

Appropos of nothing except this site, I submit this article with the rather licentious quote: "I've gone from broads to bagels."

My first thought was, "And the two are different... how?"
The link seems to not work....

Perhaps, Monk, it just doesn't work for you?
Posted by Matt on Wed, 01/26/2005 - 7:42am.
Worked for me. It's about a guy named Goldstein in NY who used to be a porn king, but lost his fortune and now works for a bagel company.
Posted by steff on Wed, 01/26/2005 - 1:48pm.
of course it worked for you - it's YOUR link. *grin* matt's links never work for me and this one is no exception.

mia: heh.
My mind boggles
Posted by Intelligirly on Fri, 01/21/2005 - 2:09pm.
Here's something I've been wondering for awhile, and you may feel free to answer or not as you see fit.

Is it weird to anyone else to think about the fact that, according to Mike's long-running collecting of profiles, there are (almost) thousands of people reading this site? Reading a site that basically, what, 20? 30? of us post to on a regular basis? I forget that inpassing's not in a vaccuum any longer. It makes me feel famous, but that part with the "people have maps to your houses", not the part with "we give you loads of money for just existing." I mean, people around the world know that Steff is my sister, Cebu is my best friend, I have a cyber-crush on Mike (and Sluggy and...), etc. They may not care, but they know.

I'm the only one who thinks about this, aren't I?

I love Mike!
Already boggled
Posted by marinerd on Tue, 01/25/2005 - 9:44am.
I never think about any "strangers" reading this site, because I've been convinced since childhood that I am invisible to others.
I never worry about it.
Posted by paul on Tue, 01/25/2005 - 11:11am.
I mean, what are the odds of someone really being interested enough to try to look me up? I'm just another bit of text on a screen. Why would anyone bother? I've given enough info over the past few years in here that anyone who really wanted to could find me with very little effort, and to date no one has.

So with that take on it, I don't really care. This site rarely intersects with my normal life, and then only when I pursue a friendship with another poster here. As for the strangers from around the world who may read what I post, they have no real impact on me one way or the other, so they may as well not exist.
Thousands of readers...
Posted by Mike on Mon, 01/24/2005 - 12:25pm.
...but apparently not good enough for the Bloggies this year.

Posted by Kris the Girl on Fri, 01/21/2005 - 3:18pm.
Well, I mean "Yes I think about that, too!", not "yes, you're the only one. Loser."

It is a little strange to think about ALL the OTHERS looking in. Kind of like being under a microscope, or something...yeah. You're not alone in this thought process.

Your subject line reminded me of a teacher a friend of mine had, who would say "that fathoms me" rather than "I can't fathom that." it was rather...odd...to hear the word used that way.
Posted by Apple on Fri, 01/21/2005 - 4:05pm.
Yep, I think about it, too. Each and every time somebody tells me that I've been the topic of their conversations.

It's that feeling. You know the one. Utter shock that I'm interesting in the slightest to people, mixed with that little fear that people in fact do know where I live, mentally and physically.

And now, Kris the Chick has increased the anxiety of being in a department store window in my underwear. Thanks.

IG, did you happen to check your offline messages??? Still speechless, if you have, and well, even if you haven't. *G*

Offline messages to Apple--everyone else ignore
Posted by Intelligirly on Fri, 01/21/2005 - 4:28pm.
No, I'm still at work. Great. GREAT! Now I'm going to want to go home and check that instead of doing all the errands I need to do. Gahhhh!!!

That's going to drive me crazy. Wait...did I install it surreptitiously here on the work computer? I think I did.

I wonder how many people now know that?

I love Mike!
