Totally Crushing: Helen Cutter

You don't even want to know how long this post has been in draft status -- though there are a couple of posts that have been there even longer. Anyway, here's the latest (but unfortunately not the late-est) Totally Crushing entry: Helen Cutter!

Cleavage and a kerchief. What's not to love?

Firefox 4.0!
Category: Technical Stuff

I am now rocking the program, and getting it set up to my liking -- updating and seeking out new add-ons, replacing my broken theme (with Nuvola, for the time being), changing configuration values, and so forth -- took several hours out of my day that I hadn't planned on losing. So far it's decent. I don't like the removal of the status bar (fortunately, Status-4-Evar restores that functionality), and some of the default options are less than ideal (tabs on top; what's up with that?) -- and the program appears to be a memory hog (which is admittedly nothing new) -- but I haven't had any crashes yet. ((Erm, I think I spoke too soon about the crash thing there... though I'm pretty sure that was due to one of these plugins. Hey, speaking of plugins, dig this crazy WordPress footnote thing!))

Tonight's dinner
Category: Miscellany

Poured dry oatmeal, salt, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, cornmeal, and sliced frozen carrots and squash into a bowl, then poured half a beer on top of that. Nuked for several minutes, added a teaspoon of mayonnaise and a handful of flax seed. Stirred and consumed.

2011 update!
Category: Miscellany … Toys … Travels

Wow -- it's been a rather long time since I wrote in the old blog, eh? Let's see what's happening with me...

1. I have gone two weeks without buying any action figures! My last such purchases were on January 1, and since then I've actually returned two figures and sold one, so I actually have fewer toys than I had before and have spent negative money on them. This will not last, since I intend to spend $7.05 on Hasbro products by the end of the month in order to qualify for another free item (through January 31, Hasbro is offering select free items for purchases of $20), but still. Two weeks without buying any toys! Considering that I averaged nearly a toy a day from mid-November through December, that is pretty impressive.

Note that my purchase of the Doctor Who Christmas Adventure Set last week does not count, since that was reserved back in December and I had already set aside the necessary funds for it. Also, as it is a reserve item and won't ship until I've accrued $60 worth of merchandise, there's no telling when I'll actually see it. 🙂 (more...)
