Hello, the flist. I have not talked to you much lately! Or seen you much. Or anything. Because I have been super busy doing things like, uh. Other. Things. ANYWAY. My most recent thing was a frantic job search! And now, internet, I have a massive fucking dilemma. It is kind of like a size two jeans problem, but I could still really use your advice, or the advice of everyone you know, especially if they have been in a similar position before.

Torn between two job offers )

Hello internet! How are you today? I'm doing well!

So, I need to give this survey to eight people. And it's way easier to get my flist to do it than to go find eight people who I know and get them to do it. So! Here is a survey about "important issues today related to women’s health." I'm the only person who can see the answers. It would make my day if you (YES, YOU) would fill it out before midnight.

the_wanlorn: The text "Why do you always have to take it to an ugly place?" (In Plain Sight: Ugly Place)
I am suddenly SUPER FRUSTRATED. Like, I have been fairly okay all day, and now I'm like I WANT TO PUNCH THE WORLD IN THE FACE. AND MAYBE THE KIDNEYS. And I have no fucking idea why beyond sudden mood swing.

It is possibly because of the slight lack of food today (no, self, corn chips, a slice of pizza, a soda, a gross cookie, and some kefir is not enough calories for an entire day stop forgetting to eat) but everything I want to eat will take too long to cook so I am just saving it for tomorrow.

(Who has barbecue ribs? I HAVE BARBEQUE RIBS. Who just realized she probably does not have anything big enough to cook them in? I JUST REALIZED etc etc etc)

Hey who wants to see pictures of a garter snake?

Cute animal photos are always a good way to end an entry, right? )

I also have pictures of my foot that I am considering posting. OH HAY HAVE A POLL BECAUSE I CAN MAKE THOSE! (FYI, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY NOT CLICK ON POLL CREATOR AFTER YOU HAVE WRITTEN YOUR ENTRY IF YOUR BROWSER DOES NOT, SAY, REDISPLAY THE TEXT IF YOU HIT THE BACK BUTTON >:( NOT PLEASED.)

MICHAEL: One evening, a patient was brought into my clinic in the middle of the night. He was tortured so badly I couldn’t believe he was still breathing. A man was with him. It was the man on your radio. I’ll never forget the voice. He put a gun to my head and explained to me that my patient had robbed him and that he wanted me to save him so the pain would last longer. I did what I could. He said to come here for my money — my blood money. There’s a place between life and death. Amazing how long a man can linger there.
PRESCOTT: That’s enough, all right? Okay. Bring everything upstairs. We’re getting out of here. Tony? Tony, can you hear me?
THUG: What the hell is going on?
MICHAEL: I know this guy. He’ll have people outside the bank, in your truck,and on your boat. You have no idea who you’re dealing with.
