sabotabby: raccoon anarchy symbol (TARDIS by mimisoliel)
Today was, apparently, the day to get cool shit in the mail. First, when I left the house on my way to physio, there was a Doctor Who ice tray in my mailbox. It's not especially convenient for ice cubes, but my intent is to make chocolates with it because I'm awesome that way.

Nevertheless, in the meantime it also does make ice cubes, albeit really large ones, so here is Marinetti exterminating an ice Dalek:

My badass Adventure Kitty, you guys.

Here's what the TARDIS one looks like:

As if that wasn't already enough to make my day, I got yet another package in the mail in the afternoon, this one from the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] nihilistic_kid. He'd blogged awhile ago about the most hilarious ever Jews for Jesus pamphlet, a rare specimen of the sort I collect for the lulz, and actually sent it my way (along with a book that looks awesome).

Feast your eyes:

leave it to bieber photo leaveittobieber_zps3a15752a.jpg

It's about how Jesus is more awesome than Justin Bieber. Which is really setting a low bar if you ask me, but I am probably not the target audience. Anyway! In an effort to share some of the joy, I've scanned the whole thing so that you can read it, print it, and evangelize. You're welcome!

You shouldn't expect people to be kind to you just because you're in pain. (In fact, a good many people go out of their way to be cruel when they sense another is in pain.) Even when I'm visibly in pain—even the usual "but you don't look sick" crowd at work has changed their tune to "my God, you look tired"—I understand that no one will refrain from shoving me on the subway or making huffing noises when I walk too slowly or staring when I have to get up and sit down every ten minutes or so or when I start crying because I'm in pain or the escalator is broken or whatever. Such is the world of disability, and it's something that I'm familiar with, even if I've never experienced it before now.

I am blessed with the sort of friends who have come through in a crisis–spectacularly so, as it turns out—but I don't expect the empathy of strangers.

So while many people have been kind to me, and a number have been raging dickheads, I'd like to salute someone I don't even know because he showed me a little decency today.

I've been fretting about the garbage, you see. Moving creates a lot of garbage, and the previous owner left some of hers. Add it to mine and the outside bin is overflowing. I don't have a ton of steps between where the bin sits on my patio and where it needs to be left out on the curb, but in my current condition, the handful of steps I have, and the physical strength required to haul a full garbage bin down, made bringing the garbage out an impossible task. My leg ached just thinking about it, so I resigned myself to having garbage all over my porch for another two weeks.

But it was just my luck that as I was leaving for work, the garbage truck pulled up. I explained my predicament to the city worker hauling bags into the back of the truck, and asked him if he could do me a huge favour and take mine, even though the bin was on the patio. He didn't even hesitate.

"You're so awesome," I told him.

He laughed. I mean, I guess it wasn't a big deal to him; it took him two seconds. But it was a huge deal to me. "Rob Ford doesn't think so."

"Ah, well," I said. "He's wrong. And I voted for Pantalone."

He grinned, and then off the garbage truck went, and we waved at each other as I hobbled on my way up the hill to the subway.

Look what [livejournal.com profile] cyborg_kitty100 bought me!



This is basically the most hilarious album ever. It's all about how fluoride in the water supply sex education is turning Our Children into communists, or communist-Nazis, or people who have trial marriages—anyway, it's G-R-E-A-T. The cover will be displayed prominently somewhere in our house to make visiting colleagues of mine raise eyebrows for years to come.

If that weren't already wonderful enough, she went and digitized the album, so you can hear it too! For a limited time only, so download it now. Trust me, you really want to hear this.

+ Thank you [livejournal.com profile] rantipole6! This looks awesome.

- We had our first confirmed case of swine flu at school. I'm very tired, but I don't think I have swine flu. I think I'm just underslept.

+ Anyone wanna design a website that I don't have the time or inclination to do?

- Fuck you, California Supreme Court.

To [livejournal.com profile] joxn: I got it! Thank you!

P.S. Did you notice that I'm in it? I am practically unrecognizable, though, as I had very short hair at the time.

[livejournal.com profile] zingerella, with an assist from [livejournal.com profile] human_loser, made me the best birthday cake ever:

It tasted as good as it looks, and [livejournal.com profile] zingerella explains here how she done it. Also, for those of you who care about such things, it's vegan.
