Two Thumbs Up

Roger Ebert's Last Words


Just... wow.

"I know it is coming, and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can't say it wasn't interesting. My lifetime's memories are what I have brought home from the trip. I will require them for eternity no more than that little souvenir of the Eiffel Tower I brought home from Paris."
--- Roger Ebert on his eventual death.

But more upliftingly:

"Chaz is always my protector. She had her doubts. She worries that I'm too impulsive and trusting. She is correct. Left entirely to my own devices, god knows what I might be capable of. She would follow me into the mouth of a cannon, but first she'd say, "Do you really think it's a good idea to crawl into that cannon?" Then I would explain that it was my duty as a journalist, a film critic, a liberal, or a human being, etc., to crawl into the cannon. And she'd suggest I sleep on it and crawl into the cannon fresh and early in the morning."

He's a smarter, more articulate man then I ever thought. I hope you stay with us for a while yet, Mr. Ebert.

Life Lesson #9999

Never wear headphones while folding laundry. Static shock is a bitch to take in the ear.

...It only seems obvious now.

Thanks for the Nightmares

PETA propaganda videos make for some seriously fucked up nightmares. If I were to say, "I've never seen a skull blink before," you'd probably think I was talking about my dream, but I'm not. The fur industry never fails to disgust me.

But I still dislike PETA.

Neighbor 1: Aren't you the little girl that lives here?
Me: Little girl?
Neighbor 1: Yeah, the 14 or 15-year-old girl that lives here?
Me: I...live here. But I'm 21.
Neighbor 1: Oh I'm sorry! You just looked really young, I thought you were 14!

Hwaaaa! ^-^ But oh, that's not all! Two months earlier:

Neighbor 2: So what grade are you in now?
Me: Grade...? I'm not in high school anymore.
Neighbor: Really??
Me: Yeah. I even went to college for a while already.
Neighbor 2: Wow, you're one of the lucky ones, then. You've got a babyface. I thought you were 16.


Ahem. So, the post explaining this recent absence is Friends Only because certain relatives who have the internet don't need to know what I think about the situation. I'll e-mail you about it soon, Sepecat and Gilt, since you don't have LJ accounts to view such posts. All old posts and some new posts will also be Friends Only since I have coworkers now. XP
