Nicked from goddessdster

The rules are easy, just post 10 things that recently made you happy! Then tag 10 people and force them to post this meme on their LJs. Because it is good. Everyone needs a little happiness once in a while.

1. Frame clearance at Shopko.
2. Called electric company, got an actual human on the phone. With luck they will come trim my trees, so the trees won't (a) rip out the power cables and (b) scrape on the roof and scare the hell out of me at 3 a.m.
3. Got my Paranoia Agent bag fixed so I don't have to carry a Meijers bag to work.
4. Nearing bottom of laundry pile.
5. That dog that drives by the house twice a day, yelping, with doppler effect.
6. Spore
7. "Well hi there kittyOH MY GOD YOU'RE A POSSUM OH JESUS!"
8. Brass Eye and, consequently, my region-free DVD player.
9. Waving hello to the Asians next door. We have no language in common, so we wave and say HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! As you do. I hope they aren't serial killers.
10. Mashed potatoes. OM NOM NOM.

Not tagging because.

Possums are really quite cute, from the right angle.

Bonus, they come with a handle - you can pick them up by their tails without injuring them! ('course, that doesn't mean they won't injure you, sadly.)

#7

They sort of remind me of The Rodents of Unusual Size in The Princess Bride. Sometimes I surprise the ones who hang out under the deck and it's bigtime mutual squick.

(Now I want to name a shelter cat Possum just because.)

Re: #7

They remind me of that Night Gallery with the horrible little possum brooch that got really big and killed people.

Don't wear jewelry, is what I'm saying.

Re: #7

What if it's SHINY jewelry, can we wear it then?

Re trees, didn't you have another set of other-languaged neighbors with leet tree-climbing and woodcutting skills?
annlarimer From: annlarimer Date: September 3rd, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC) (linkage)
I do. But the problem is, how do I ask them?

I think I can get Will the Lawn Guy to do it. He advertises himself as a Lawn and Tree Guy.

The good thing about serial killers is that their intentions cut across all language barriers. Wait.

Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.

Truly it is a small world after all.

Actually they seem very well adjusted, apart from the psychotic obsession with gardening. Oh wait.

Re: Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.

There is nothing obsessive about gardening. I should know. >.>

Re: Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.

I'm thinking of buying a chainsaw for mine. And a couple of bags of cement.

Re: Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.

Make sure you paint the cement green. Or purple! Go with purple!

Wanderingly, she asked...

why do people even have DVD players that aren't region free? Seriously.
annlarimer From: annlarimer Date: September 5th, 2008 06:00 pm (UTC) (linkage)

I blame Whitey.

They just don't know such wonders exist. The Man keeps them down.

Wonders at this Brass Eye that people are mentioning.

And, btw, I have mistaken so many possums for kitties that they just started hanging out at my house. It's a wonder they didn't ask for toy mice and yarn.

Mr Wikipedia, and possibly Mr Youtube, can tell you a thing or two about Brass Eye. That nice Pegg boy appears in the Special as a pedophile, who explains to the presenter that no, he does not in fact wish to sleep with the presenter's six-year-old boy, because he does not fancy him.
