Re: Chor bahkh, and making other fictional foods

My dad and I took a shot at lembas once. Laugh, if you like.

The crap kept forever.

Re: Movies you turned off before you were half-way through.

I intended to turn off Transformers, but I didn't get a chance. I fell asleep when the bulk of the explosions started. Same with Walk the Line, minus the explosions.

I did walk out in the middle of Becoming Jane. It's a very beautiful movie, but the plot just didn't interest me in the slightest.

Re: The. Wost. Thing. You've. Eaten.

Hmm. Wost. Anyway... In all likelihood, the worst thing that I can remember eating is hot dogs. Recently, I came off a year.3 of vegetarianism, and started re-introducing myself to meat. I've discovered that I don't really like beef, can stand turkey, and am pretty okay with chicken. But hot dogs ma...

Re: "Wheeee!" he ejaculated.

"Damn and blast!" is typically descriptive enough for me. Or just "Blast!" if I'm lazy.

Re: Do you actually enjoy your job?

I'm a costume designer, which means long hours, sore fingers and shoulders, and working with overinflated egos, so usually by hellweek I want to kill things. But I really do love every minute of my job.

Re: Argument vs. Discussion

By saying argument vs. discussion, you're creating an artificial divide, where discussion is always good and argument is always bad and filled with hate. I think that there isn't much difference between argument and discussion, really. As for argument vs. discussion, I don't see any difference betw...

Argument vs. Discussion

Having read through a couple of threads here on xkcd -and also been part of rip-roaring arguments that shouldn't have been- I can't help but notice that humans are nearly incapable of having a discussion over a controversial/taboo/stupid topic that doesn't turn into a full-blown high-emotion argumen...

Re: How'd you come up with your username(s)?

It's the name of the estate in the book Rebecca, which is my mother's name. Rebecca, not Manderley.

It also shares two syllables with the word "gerrymander".

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

These really aren't fabulous, but the first one's okay because only I and another person caught the humor of the statement. We were staining kidney beans in Biology using methylene blue, but no one could spell it (the level of intelligence in high school stuns me) so our teacher (actually a PE teach...

Re: How do you find new music?

I've found that a great way to find new music is to yoink a good friend's mp3 player (if they have one) and poke around. Usually works best when you have similar tastes and different resources.

Otherwise, I get music thrown at me because I sing. Good times.
