I contemplated posting this in the "best things" thread, but here we are.

I've decided I'm not dating and not hooking up with anyone for at least a month, preferably until Christmas. Some recent slutty behaviour on my part led to a revelation. I'm not okay with the breakup. Well, I am okay with the breakup, but I'm not okay with being single and I've still kind of got my stabilisers on and I need to steady myself mentally and emotionally and stop wobbling into bed with people or into a big puddle of beer. So, I'm celibate until further notice.

Time to rekindle my love tryst with Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim.

Tell me I'm not a shitty person for having to cancel my tattoo appointment (I've cancelled four in the last year due to unforseen expenses, illness).

Cause I really feel like a shitty person no matter who I say I can't do something for.

That sucks! Maybe you could tip the artist extra at your next appointment or bring them some cookies?

If the artist is booked up for two months I imagine that appointment will get scooped up pretty quick. And you're giving like five days notice. I see nothing shitty or requiring of anything extra. I mean, extra tips and cookies are always wonderful, but you aren't doing anything remotely shitty in this situation. Life happens, you aren't leaving the artist with a huge block of time with half an hour's notice.


All true things! I managed to work it out tentatively. Honestly, I'd rather go to the appointment. My coworker , like I said, bullied me into swapping shifts with her (for less hours!) and I hate working Sundays to begin with. I told her I could only cover a little if it's a definite thing...gah. Regardless, I am doing the tattoo.

We only actually have three more appointments left, so I really really want to get it done.

Like most people, I suspect, I feel like I have really involved, mixed-up dreams that seem really interesting when I first wake up, but they kind of fade away and then I can't remember any details unless they were really vivid. Just now in the kitchen I remembered the most vivid part of my dream from last night. It was that I was going to use the new coffee mugs that I took into work on Monday. Way to go, subconscious, you've hit a new high (low?) in boringness!

I'm working away at a show and I'm SO BORED. Seriously, my workmates get really excited being onsite, but I find it so forking boring. I walk around thinking, it would be better if I could drive a forklift or something so that I actually had something to do, rather than just walking around, waiting and looking for something do. BORING.

I should probably not speak too soon though, because the next few days will probably be ridiculously busy and I'll be sorry I moaned about being bored. But I am.

Oh dear, the phone conversation (or one side of it anyway) going on a foot away from me on the bus... "What's wrong with me? I'll tell you what's wrong with me. I should have never met you, that's what. I should have jumped off a pier. I should set myself on fire. I should have boiled myself in oil, anything to have avoided meeting you. You're the worst wife ever. (Pause) What? You're a terrible wife! A stranger would be a better wife! (Pause.) I haven't seen you in two weeks and you think you're a good wife?! I'd hate to see what it would be like if I actually saw you..." And on, and on. Yikes.

Oh man, it got way worse after that! He called her "the only hors d'oeuvre he actually has to pay for," a skank, and addressed her as Einstein a couple of times to indicate how profoundly stupid he thought she was. I don't know whether she's a terrible wife or not, but he sure seems like a terrible husband!

The annoyance I feel about the new job I start today is exactly why people don't like hiring overqualified people. I get it now.

I am obsessed, I mean at the absolute level, with the show "Scandal".
I just keep binge watching in one big, continuous loop with no end. And I don't even think it's any good.

Best thing on the internet today? A language ID game written by some Australians. http://greatlanguagegame.com/
My highest score yet is 850; I tend to hover around 500. It's interesting to see which languages and language families (consistently) trip me up. And also weird how some languages "sound different" depending on what the multiple choice options are. (I find that if I close my eyes and just listen, without reading the suggested names, I do a better job.)

I like it! I got 950 but very few of the languages I knew, mostly a guess based on where I think (or know) they sound regionally.

I did it a few times and got up to 1450 but it is stressful! I guess I'm pretty good at guessing regional areas but there are some like slovian vs serbian, which I hadn't heard either before and just guessed one or the other and then my last one was albanian and I guessed a different language from same general region.

I love languages but there were only a few I had little doubts about the language which were Italian, French, German, Japanese, Korean and Hebrew. I think I can identify Mandarin pretty easily and Spanish I should get but neither of those came up for me. There was a few annoying clips where they actually speak english words intermixed and I'm like uhh... hah

No kidding. As a language professional, I want to go bury my head in the sand in shame. But I don't pretend to know the difference between Danish and Finnish, for example, forget about Macedonian vs Bulgarian. And the ones I do speak were funny in such an out-of-context way. I was expecting news reports or something but one was just randomly bizarre overheard conversation.

Many of them sound like news reports? I don't know. My husband came in, and said "are you speaking to your comrades there?" hah Then as I was playing, he said "that one is easy, it is spanish", he was joking because spanish is the one language I know best :)
