LJ Posts To Do

Okay, when I was going to just start with posting something here I got hit with the urge to put some order into all the ideas of what I want to post about. Because after having done some thinking about that lately for the first time I am really postitve that I want to get more involved with this journal and the people on my friends list and (probably) communities again. But one step after the other. And there is a bunch of stuff I want to start off with posting. I will set myself a time window for getting everything "off my chest" and say these are posts I definitely need to have done until the end of this month. Because I don't know with what to start and don't want to make huge posts jumping from topic to topic I am now probably going to write on several posts at once and just leave it in private posts until things are finished.

So here's my Posts-to-do ListCollapse )

A terrible terrible thing happened today.


I just spent about 30 minutes to prove I am right but I have to face the truth and finally admit my embarassing and shameful mistake.

It is indeed always and under all circumstances without any weird exceptions "Im Moment" and never "immoment". That word does simply not exist in German language (and probably not in any other language either but that's not the point..).

I fail at life.

(And this is less of a joke than it sounds! Seriously!)

Your Score: Sad Cookie Cat

51% Affectionate, 42% Excitable, 66% Hungry

You are the classic Shakespearian tragedy of the lolcat universe. The sad story of a baking a cookie, succumbing to gluttony, and in turn consuming the very cookie that was to be offered. Bad grammar ensues.

About fenceposts.

There's a German figure of speech, "to wave with the fencepost", which means as much as "(obviously) hinting at something".

Sometimes I think I need to be hit over the head with said fencepost repeatedly to catch on whatever the hell you are trying to tell me or what kind of hidden meaning there is in what you are telling me. It might be because of my tendency of being far more occupied with my own thoughts and what's going on in my own head than with what is going on around me, it might be because I am just not in tune with people's emotions (including mine) or because I just don't have the patience or understanding for unnecessary talking and "beating around the bush" (two figures of speech for the price of (n)one today: Germans "talk around the hot mush/pulp"). Or for some other reason or none.

But seriously, if you want something from me or there's something you really want to tell or ask me, if you want a specific message getting across to me, then just say it as it is. Unless you are absolutely sure you have my complete undivided attention and there are no other thoughts floating around in my head aside from the thought of you and the immediate conversation, I am not likely to pick up on anything otherwise. Don't think it would be rude or too straightforward to be direct because unlike most people (who I don't care about) I do not find anything nice or polite about not saying what you mean. It's not appreciated. Being direct is.

It's not really related to anything significant as it was just one of my typical (seemingly) random trails of thought (thought leads to other barely related thought leads to other even more barely related thought leads to...) so don't try finding meaning in something that has none.

And PS: If I read something it usually has my complete or near-complete attention just like a a rare conversation in which I decided to give you my full attention which makes me usually quite good at "reading between the lines" (sorry, Germans do the very same there), probably better than the average person. Go figure. Thus this doesn't apply to any of you people who I know through writing, not through speaking.

"..each time that one loves is the only time one has ever loved. Difference of object does not alter singleness of passion. It merely intensifies it. We can have in life but one great experience at best, and the secret of life is to reproduce that experience as often as possible."

Cat Cam

This is strangely fascinating.

"Sometimes I have some challenging ideas, or crazy like some other people would say. This time I thought about our cat who is the whole day out, returning sometimes hungry sometimes not, sometimes with traces of fights, sometimes he stay also the night out.
When he finally returns, I wonder where he was and what he did during his day. This brought me to the idea to equip the cat with a camera."

If you don't care about the technical details here are "Mr. Lee's" trips.

what would house do?
Some retarded monkey keeps calling me randomly on my cell phone. Retarded because even a monkey would normally be smart enough to not send his number. See, this is an entirely logical conclusion.

Monkeys aside, this number kept showing up in my list of missed calls over the past three weeks or so. It's weird because it's always really just in my missed calls, usually when I check my cell phone in the morning. Seems like this person regularly calls me during the night. And never just once, it's usually four or five times one after the other (as if I am suddenly there to take the call - but then again, does he actually want me to pick up?). Only once I had those calls sometime during work but it also must have been while I was away from my desk for a while because I only noticed them in my missed calls. And one other time it was when I was actually able to pick up but I didn't recognize the number and no one answered.

Today whoever it is suddenly called during work and when I saw the number I wasn't sure if it was the same because they didn't call me for a couple of days. I said "Hello?" and only heard static or something but then as if he was far away a guy saying something like "Sorry, wrong number" - it was really hard to hear at all. Then he hung up and I was confused. Then the phone kept ringing and ringing, just once or twice first and then I just kept hitting "Ignore" until it stopped because I was at work after all and didn't know how to react.

What the hell? Aside from the fact that you don't accidentally call a wrong number, apologize and then do it five times more within the next two minutes, you also don't call the wrong number regularly at night. And if you want to terrorize some random stranger you usually don't just let it ring once or twice or always at the same time when you know they never pick up anyway - and you don't send your number. Sadly I just have a cheap prepaid cell phone with no "Block number" function. I could of course call back but unfortunately I can't think of anything to say that wouldn't be stupid and useless. They might be dumb enough to say their name on the phone but it's still kind of not worth the effort.

I guess I'll just have to take it with humor if they happen to call at a time again when I can actually pick up - and do random things like ordering a pizza or asking them what their favorite horror movie is..

I'll take the risk of sounding like a know-it-all here but like I thought and said elsewhere yesterday instead of jumping on the drama train before knowing the background of this incident they did make a mistake, they did notice this (what a surprise!) and they are taking the time to review the suspended journals to identify those that got caught up in this accidentally.

EDIT: Putting related links here instead of letting them clutter my Memories or getting forgotten - I already lost the most important link that had the backstory and a list of unbiased facts. Sucks.
