I HAVE BEEN DREAMING OF THIS DAY FOR SO LONG

LIKE LITERALLY, I ONCE HAD A DREAM ABOUT PINEAPPLE CHOCOLATE EXISTING

AND I'VE BEEN RANTING EVEN LONGER

CADBURY, I SAID, Y U NO PINEAPPLE?? IT IS THE VERY BEST THING YOU MAKE, Y U NO MAKE IT IT'S OWN THING??

BUT THEN I WALKED PAST A CO-WORKERS DESK, AND THERE IT WAS. I HAD NEVER TALKED TO THIS PERSON BEFORE, BUT WE BONDED OVER CHOCOLATE. SHE GAVE ME A ROW, AND THUS TODAY WAS A PERFECT DAY, FOR PINEAPPLE CHOCOLATE EXISTED

I JUST DROVE HALF WAY ACROSS THE CITY TO GO TO THE SHOP SHE FOUND IT IN (BECAUSE WHAT IF THE CLOSER SHOPS DIDN'T HAVE IT? I WASN'T GOING A MINUTE LONGER IN THIS WORLD WITHOUT PINEAPPLE CHOCOLATE THAN I NEEDED TO). TO THE DODGY SIDE OF TOWN, THAT I DON'T KNOW MY WAY AROUND AND AM PROBABLY LUCKY NOT TO HAVE BEEN ROBBED IN

BOUGHT THREE PACKETS

AM CONSIDERING OFFERING CADBURY FIRST BORN IN EXCHANGE FOR LIFETIME SUPPLY

I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY

So anyway, I pretty much hate my job.  Not like in a My life is miserable I weep over the steering wheel every morning, kind of way, but more a sort of, Oh my god I hate filling the fucking coke fridge. What the fucking hell, have you people never heard of TAPS, jesus. And what the what, BP, how are we still using fecking DOS, are you even aware of the 21st century? kind of way. It's not awful and not all that strenuous, and the pay is good, but it's crappy and unstimulating, and the slushie machines are noisy as hell.

HOWEVER. There is one thing I kinda love about it.

One of my jobs, the actual formal name for it is "Facing and Filling" the shelves and fridges. It's basically putting out stock (filling), and making sure it's all at the front of the shelf/fridge with the label facing forward (facing).

So, um, it might happen that, uh, while walking back to the counter after turning all the cokes around, I might, occasionally, maybe, sort of, um, do this: 



HOH YES. I AM A MUTHAFLIPPING FACER YOU GUISE :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD


Also, election happened. FIFTEEN HOUR FREAKING DAY, my god, but I actually enjoyed it. Even if my throat was killing me after asking 400 people's names, addresses, if they've voted so far in this election, no, in THIS election. With THESE candidates. Today or in the last few weeks. LOL. The answer I want to hear is no. Awesome. Here're your ballots, this is what you do with them. 

The moral is: people. For seriously. Be kind to your polling officials. That certified list is bloody huge.

But you know the really amazing thing is how many people in the world are named Francis.


I HATE KANGAROOS AND ALSO EVERY OTHER DRIVER ON THE ROADS. FUCKING HOPPY BASTARDS HAVE NO SENSE OF TIMING AND I ALWAYS GET STUCK BEHIND CARAVANS, TRUCKS, UTES LOADED UP WITH DIRT AND RUBBISH, OR OLD PEOPLE WHO ARE IDEALOGICALLY OPPOSED TO GOING A SANE SPEED. I had a really unfortunate drive in this morning and have been ranting about this all day.


My beloved car has reached the stage where bits are literally falling off  when I touch them, and my speedo is completely beyond saving. But on the other hand I HAVE A NEW COMPUTER~~~  \o/   Or, will do, on Monday. I beautiful new desktop with a massive 21 INCH SCREEN I CAN'T EVEN that's powerful enough to handle my ridiculously expensive video and image editing software. I am so in love with it, seriously. Expect many comments on old posts when I finally get it, because I doubt I'll ever want to leave it and will finally be able to catch up on all the internet I've missed lately for whatever reason.


Speaking of, HELLO BBS HOW ARE YOU I'VE MISSED YOOOUUUUUU SFM, MY GOD. I'm still sort of everywhere, but can't wait to get this new computer going and actually, you know, participate on this LJ thing with all you wonderful people again. <3


Oh hang on, one last thing: Have I mentioned that I'm going to Brisbane to chill with mah peeps? BECAUSE YEAH, I'M GOING TO FREAKING BRISBANE(!!!!) TO CHILL WITH MY BEAUTIFUL, BADARSE FREAKING PEEPS(!!!!), JSYK (\O/)

TURTLENECKS.

DEATH TO TURTLENECKS.

It's not just that they don't look good on anyone (because they really really really freaking DON'T);  they actively make people hideous. I would turn down Brad Pitt if he were in a turtleneck. All up near the chin like that. It's not natural - PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE NECKS. Collar bones are lovely, why cover up skin that SHOULD BE SHOWN because without it you look like a NECKLESS FREAK?

AND, they make everyone but obscenely skinny people look massive. Not in a good way. Not in a fat way either, but in a "holy fucking god a woollen tank is coming towards us, run for your li-- oh, it's Frank and Martha. Nevermind." Way. The chest proportions go crazy and people look like bodybuilders who have been shoved into tiny socks.

And, and, how can people stand things up on their necks like that? I'd feel like I was suffocating. In fact, seeing other people with things on their necks makes me think they're suffocating which makes me feel like I'm suffocating BECAUSE I AM A CARING AND EMPATHETIC PERSON so people wearing turtlenecks is actually cruel towards me because it not only hurts my eyes and sense of GOOD-FREAKING-TASTE, but actually affects my breathing. IT MAKES SENSE SO THERE.

But Stella, I hear you say, they're warmer than a normal jumper! To which I reply: Bullshit.

WEAR
 
A

SCARF,

BASTARDS.

Scarves aren't hideous. Scarves are lovely and fashionable and functional and appropriate for all occasions. Society needs more scarf wearers. It will take us all back to a more refined time. A time of style and sophistication. A time of.. whatever, I don't care, a time when people didn't wear fuck ugly excuses for jumpers, okay. It'll be a golden age.

But don't think the only problem is the jumper kind, by the way. I hate those turtleneck singlet things too. They are in a slightly different category though. They're still in the "goddamn hideous what the fuck who dresses these people" column, but overlap with the "aaahahahahahahaRIDICULOUS" line. Seriously. There isn't even any excuse for those things. If you're cold enough that you want a few extra centimetres around the neck, perhaps you should consider sleeves.

I hate turtlenecks. You should all hate them too. They do not suit you. I don't care who you are, they don't suit you. They don't suit anyone or anything, except being put in a huge pile and burnt until there is nothing left but slightly unattractive ash. 

Turtlenecks are an insult to fashion, an insult to aesthetics, an insult to the sighted. I HATE THEM.

Thankyou for attending this evening. There is a box by the door in which you may deposit your abominations to my soul turtlenecked items for the bonfire as you leave.

First of all, context: I can't stop watching Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick. Very funny, very well observed, occasionally fantastically brutal reviews of old(ish - from the eighties and nineties, mostly) kids tv shows and movies. Most of the texts they look at are legitimately terrible - though often in profoundly creative ways - but some are still quite lovable; especially if, like me, you were just slightly too young to tell the difference between shite and awesome when they first came out.

I'm particularly fond of the Chick's look at Bowie's amazing package Labyrinth, the joint review of Fern Gully (I still love the movie, though, nonsensical environmentalist propaganda that it may be), and That Guy's inquisition into Titanic - an animated musical (which should be watched even if you, like pretty much everyone in the world, have never heard of the movie. Which is... terrible. Beyond all reason. So bad it's somehow sort of beautiful). In fact, anything that has That Guy gaping in disbelief or exploding into a frothing rage (ie., most things he reviews) is pretty ace.

80s/90s kid's entertainment with yelling, sarcasm, criticism, liberal use of intertextuality, and cameos from guns and puppies. Essentially, I'm in love.


There are two things that have appeared in my watchings that I particularly want to share. One of which induced epic squee and will probably only be understood by me, and the other... is... well.


1)Concerning Star Trek: Next Gen, and Gargoyles (the best show ever) )


1.5 - AKA, the seque) The dude who played Geordi La Forge on Next Gen did the voice over for the intro to Captain Planet.


2) Captain Planet did an AIDS episode. (8:45 mins in)

Yes, that's right: AIDS.  )

What the fuck.

What the fecking fecking feck.

I bought a little block of Cadbury Snack earlier, and have just eaten some, only to discover something awful.

There are no pineapple pieces.

What. The. Feck.

I only buy Snack for the pineapple. The pineapple is the best flavour. I love the pineapple. Where is the freaking pineapple?

It's on the label, still. Right in the middle, even. It's the one the glasses are pouring milk into, for pity's sake.

"With six delicious flavours" the label says. Maybe they cut out a flavour to make the rows symetrical, so they could be three on three, like, and there's still pineapple in the big blocks. But why sacrifice the pineapple? Why not the orange or the coconut or something? Or even the fecking caramel? People can at least buy a block of caramel to make up for it - we pineapple lovers (ie, everyone) have no alternatives.

I am quite distressed. I was looking forward to my pineapple. Cadbury have crossed a line. Anyone want to form a resistance movement?
