I was at the library over the weekend, and they have all kinds of crazy books there! I was browsing the ‘eroticized autobiography’ section, hoping to find some inspiration, when I came across THIS book by RYAN NORTH.
Inside the front cover, the dedication starts right up with an indication of what’s to come:
This book is shouted from the rooftops at all the haters, all the squares, all the sugar-pushers, all the downtown cruisers, all the eagle-boys, all the late-night mamas, all the daddies with their packs on, all the servers, all the waiters, all the rack babies, all the dollar hustlers, all the soda jerkoffs, all the brownstains, all the bronyboys, all the nerdlovers, all the sandy wigglers, and all the 3am jonesin’ candyattic crashers who made this ride as real as it got.
I think that last bit is a reference to Joey Comeau but as for the rest ???
I wanted to check it out and read more but it was ‘REFERENCE ONLY’ and also it was really, like, sticky? That may have just been my library’s copy BUT in the colophon it also says:
Titles set in Ostrich Sans
Text set in Curlz MT
Coated in Rio Grande sticky wax
Each copy kissed by the author or his representative
I’ve already got ENOUGH copies of stuff kissed by Ryan or his representative so I said NO THANK YOU
[ BOOKWAR ]
All I will say in response to this UNADULTERATED SASS is:
- man it figures that Malki would stand up for both the daddies with their packs on AND the sandy wigglers, no surprise there
- Rio Grande sticky wax is a great deal, especially in bulk
- Curlz MT is beautiful and I’m so sorry you can’t see that David Malki and I know you probably think you’re SO COOL by saying you hate it just like you hate Comic Sans just like everyone else (CONFORM MUCH??) but I bet you couldn’t tell me why you hate it just that the LAMEstream Media told you to and yeah I bet you’ve got opinions about Papyrus too, BIG surprise there, but maybe next time before opening your mouth you open your EYES to how beautiful type can be??
- For example an old poem got finally FULLY REALIZED here thanks to a little thing called me and another little other thing called oh I don’t know CURLZ MT:
- I rest my case
A photo of a pre-order card for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros., supposedly from retail store Fred Meyer, has allegedly pegged the date that
When I asked the client for the login information on their network, they provided me with a username and the password “unique.”
This wasn’t the first time I’d worked for them, and each time, I would receive a different set of login credentials. However, the password was always the same.
This was when I realized what had happened. Someone must have insisted that the passwords on the servers were unique. And one of the network guys took it as a literal order and changed all the passwords to “unique”.
So my roommate has bed bugs.
I specify that he has them because he keeps getting bitten and finding them on himself and his bed but I am only a wall away and have no such experiences.
Exterminator is coming by tomorrow morning.
If the internet is so great, why isn’t everyone using it? I thought it was just for email?

"The Apple Watch represents a redrawing of the map that locates technology in one place and our bodies in another."
This is fucking hilarious to me because:
- Apple is far from the first to introduce wearable phone tech, and definitely far from the first to do so in the last year.
- Apple is playing fuckin’ catch-up at this point; they’re sitting at 11% market share compared to Android’s 85%. The idea that the Apple Watch is going to be the thing that breaks through and makes wearable tech a cultural phenomenon before Android/Google does (bearing in mind that Android Wear is already a thing and has been for months) is laughable.
- Breathless and sensational technophobia.
When I look back on my time in therapy, I wonder if I could’ve done a better job of making it work for me. Maybe I should’ve offered up specific changes that I wanted to see to the therapists, such as “I want to stop crying several times a week” or “I need to learn to be okay with being single.” (Both of these things happened without the help of a therapist, by the way.) But…I didn’t really know that I needed to do that. I saw my therapists as authority figures. I assumed they knew what they were doing, and that they would ask me for specific things if they needed to. I had only the vaguest ideas of how therapy is “supposed” to work, because my psychology classes mainly focused on theories and not on practice.
If you find yourself doing nothing but venting about your problems in therapy–without necessarily then developing any sort of plan to help resolve or cope with the problems–that’s a red flag. Venting can be therapeutic in its own right, but you shouldn’t have to pay for the opportunity to do it. Therapists have a responsibility to provide the best treatment they can; it’s literally in our code of ethics. You deserve that from your therapist.
