endlessmoe: why would you let the family guy guy host the oscars? that show isn’t even funny Just when I thought all intelligent people knew Family Guy isn’t good, I changed jobs, and there are more of them. Nobody likes his other shows though, at least. (Although they follow the same tired formula.)
dawnmariesmith said: I say “gif,” but I really don’t get why people would get angry about the difference. It’s not like you punched someone in the face. Yeah. Just search tumblr for “gif pronunciation”. It’s a thing. Though, there seem to be way more people using soft G than last time I looked or got screamed at by proxy.
I find “jif” (the original pronunciation) to be much more elegant. But since y’all seem to have severe conformity issues with your bizarre nouveax populist pronunciation, I’m just not even going to say it out loud, anymore.
schmergo: Guys, if the groundhog saw his shadow and Richard III was discovered a few days later, does that mean that the winter of our discontent has officially been made glorious summer by the son of York?
I don’t think I know how to add my own P.S. to a reblog in the new Tumblr setup. But I post twice a month, so I should be OK.
"but how are you ever going to make money doing X"

Gruul took home the day, but this is a story of how absurdly fun Simic was, even though I didn’t win. It’s a story of a guild promo creature who crossed party lines to help a watery friend. It’s the story of love and mutants. Check it out at your favorite casual game site and mine, Play Unplugged!
endlessmoe: based on the kinds of reblogs i get from my posts with more notes, i’m gonna go out on a limb and say that people think i post everything in order to start an argument You assert that things are true. There’s always going to be people who want to argue about it. I see it on facebook constantly, the moment anyone goes, “This is how things work,” five jerks are out...

On Hufflepuff Pride
I can’t believe I’m even talking about this after all the books and movies are over. But I’m just really irritated … Hufflepuff’s strengths are duty, honor, and loyalty. Stalwart, dependable, reliable, trustworthy, honest and fair, when you need them, and when it counts. (Even that bastard Zacharias Smith, when it mattered. [EDIT: OK, not most of the times it...
ON "FRIENDZONES" . . .
endlessmoe: oh my god the most surefire way to get me to throw you out of everything in my life is the friendzone shit The only way you could think “the friendzone” is real is if you think of your female friends primarily as sex objects.

I wish . . .
… I could downvote things on tumblr. Mostly the really selfish things. Seriously, some of these phrases actually hurt me to read them. “BUT MIKE THEN UR JUST SELFISH CUZ U WANT ME TO STOP SAYING THINGS I WANT CUZ OF UUUUUUUUU” Yeah, knock that off, right now. “My life is about me, and I don’t give a damn what you think” is what’s killing us all. Bud.
LiveDrink, Episode 01: Pittsburgh Breakfast Tea →
My first independent podcast! It’s just shy of ten minutes. It’s pretty much me talking about tea as I prepare it and drink it. It’s going to be a thing. Special Tumblr preview before the accompanying Examiner article — so check it out! I’m tagging endlessmoe and siliconmage because this is pretty much a ridiculous concept and they also drink tea and are ridiculous.
Tumblr vs. ISFJ
My S/J (Sensing/Judging) on the MBTI spectrum means that I go through most of life thinking, “This is how things work.” When something throws me a curveball, it bothers me. My F (Feeling) means it bothers me a lot, and the I (Introverted) means it bothers me deeply, in a way that’s hard to shrug off. Following two blogs whose content I genuinely enjoy, but who have no respect...

Exploding, bleeding heart
So many arguments today. Let’s recap! 1) Geek culture acting misogynist. OK. It’s happening. There’s no question. It’s awful. There’s no question. Don’t give me why. Don’t give me how. Just, if you’re prejuced against girls participating in geek culture on their own merit, just stop. Stop, you assholes! I don’t care what logic explains why it...
