As much as I love my trusty hunk-of-junk car, Rusty, and as much character as she has, I'll also be so glad to one day drive a car whose:

* shocks and suspension don't creak and groan with every turn of the wheel
* idea of acceleration is not: "Oh, I don't think so, sweetheart. I'm not meant for this velocity. I'm too old!"
* de-mister and heater actually work, rather than producing a horrible burning smell and somehow making the engine emit weird noises too (this was especially pertinent this morning. Driving blind is not fun. I keep a rag in the car to wipe the windows - actually, no. It's worse than that. I use a sanitary pad. No, not one that's been "pre-loved", you idiots)
* consumption of petrol is appropriate to its engine capacity (my 4-cylinder car should NOT be using the same amount as a 6-cylinder)
* speakers aren't totally crapped out and making horrible static-y noises.
* (a cd player would be nice too. Tape deck?? Wtf?)

Yes, I know that if I serviced her more regularly and fixed up those problems, Rusty would run fine.

(a) she's not worth it. She's a '91 Camry!
(b) I don't have the money (which ties in very closely to (a) )
(c) The above plan is my Future plan. It might have no bearing in reality. I will probably be stuck with Rusty for a while. God, two years off 30 and I've never bought a car. Some might call that being lucky, I suppose.

....yes, I'm at the office, writing my thesis. How did you know?????

How evil are you?

Awww!! Poor dumb boys were exploited by Big Brother! Awwwwwww! They've got a permanent black mark against their innocent little names! Waaaah!!!

In case you don't want to click the link, apparently the two Australian Big Brother contestants who turkey slapped a female contestant (and the definition is here, with a nice little picture of what happened, incidentally. How tasteful.), and were subsequently kicked off the show, have more than a few grievances.

Apparently, the poor little wankers feel "exploited" and "betrayed" by the media and their fellow housemates.

Jesus. The mind boggles.

Have. A. Cry. You. Fucktards.

You're the ones who decided to go on the show. One of you thought it'd be a good idea to force your genitals into a chick's face while the other dipshit held her down. Your 15 minutes of fame are now permanently linked to your stupidity and you have no one to blame for it but yourselves.

No you're not rapists and you don't deserve the label, but you are both idiots and I have no sympathy for you. And if you're really surprised that Big Brother "exploits young people", then you're both dumber than I thought.

[ profile] gerbilsage tagged me and I've been racking my brains. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I'm not much of a pop culture whore so I don't really know that many fictional characters that I'd consider do-able. That being said, a few of the characters presented may be purely because I find the actress attractive (if they've been acted out by real-life actresses, that is), but [ profile] realcdaae got away with it! :P

Without further ado, and in no particular order of preference:

Fictional babes whom I would shag (with pics. All relatively worksafe). )

Hmm. I tag [ profile] woo_hoo, [ profile] vivienne_aster, [ profile] alleycat04, [ profile] fnoo and [ profile] mstakenidentity, even though half of those listed wouldn't be caught dead doing this meme (unless they PROVE ME WRONG!!!).

Jesus. They weren't kidding. I walked out for a smoke just then and I can already smell the smoke from the Bushfires of DoomTM. Note, people who don't know, that I'm in the metropolitan area and we can smell the smoke from the rural area!. That's one big motherfuckin' fire. Maybe I should batten down the hatches and arm myself with the hosepipe. Or go to the lab where it's air-conditioned. Hm....the choices, Jim! Oh the choices!

In other news, yesterday some bloke came around to the house to change over our gas companies so we get discounts and Green Power. Peter Garrett would be so proud. Anyway, the guy, apparently a young lad from the subcontinent, was a little bit sleazy to Eva, even though Eva constantly reiterated that same old reference of "My boyfriend and I..."

And the nuff nuff left his mobile number. Hmmmmm...I sense the opportunity for evil.

OK, shower and lab time. If anyone feels the need for procrastination like me, do not hesitate to PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!!!

LJ Interests meme results

  1. blackadder:
    Does this really need any explanation? One of the classic British comedy series. So many great quotes - Rowan Atkinson, you are my hero.
  2. damageplan:
    The last band of the late great Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott (formerly of Pantera), who was shot onstage in December 2004 by a deranged fan. IMHO, one of the best heavy metal guitarists ever. R.I.P., oh tattooed hairy red-necked one.
  3. eating souls:
    This is something Mark thinks I do a lot. It's his fault it's in my interests.
  4. gibson guitars:
    It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine. If I ever have a spare $2,500 lying around.
  5. i hate glad wrap:
    Or cling wrap, in case anyone's confused. I work with it in the lab. It hates me. I hate it. If anyone can produce glad wrap that doesn't bloody scrunch up I'll be their slave for life.
  6. led zeppelin:
    If there's someone who hasn't heard of this band then they should be ashamed of themselves. Even if you're not a fan you can't deny the influence they've had on rock, metal etc. Personally, Robert Plant's voice makes me cringe every now and then but it wouldn't have been Zepp without him.
  7. old school metal:
    Whitesnake, Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Poison, Quiet Riot, Guns n' Roses, Motley Crue, WASP...yes, the list goes on. Yes, it's shameful that I'm a fan.
  8. red dwarf:
    Again, one of the quirkiest British comedies and requires no explanation. I went dressed as Cat to a fancy dress party once. I couldn't really pull it off.
  9. soulfly:
    After Max Cavalera left Sepultura, he turned Christian (SHOCK HORROR!) and formed this band, which has heavy Brazilian tribal influences. Pretty cool if you're into that sort of thing. If you ignore the sanctimonious preaching every 5 songs or so...
  10. the blues:
    Ah, where would rock 'n' roll be without the blues? Thanks to those Mississippi Delta guitar pickers, the Western world discovered music other than the waltz and ballroom. Jazz also fits in here somewhere.

Enter your LJ user name, and 10 interests will be selected from your interest list.

Music does appear to dominate my interests, doesn't it? Hm.

Third and fourth photos. What the hell is that thing???

I suppose I'm especially asking [ profile] vivienne_aster. She knows all about bizarre marine life.

What the hell am I doing at the lab on a Sunday morning?? I don't know..
