Never Complain, Never Explain

Excellent article yoinked from ceruleanst...

Long Story; Short Pier: Talking About Comics

I can think of no better way to introduce this than Cerulean used, so I'll just echo him:

"First, make like the Lady Montague: never complain, never explain. You’re in this for the hearts and minds, which are impossible to score if you’re always on the defensive. Especially if you’re representing a scrappy little medium that never gets no respect from the major players. Bitching about that lack of respect won’t win you any points; losers bitch, and nobody cares what a loser thinks."

Furries take note.

It Figures!

You are Kinomoto Sakura
You are kind and generous, often underestimating your own abilities. Though you may not often know it, you have a lot of talent. Relying on your friends is both your strong point and your weakness.

Shopping and Other Narcissisms

Well, congratulate me! For the first time since the 1980s, I have bought pants in the NOT "big-and-tall" section of the store. :) Specifically, I have now reduced to the point where I can fit into 44x32 Levi 550's, with approximately the level of snugness that I felt when first wearing 46s.

It may not sound like a big deal, but it is to me: the 46s were three steps down from the 52s I was wearing back in 2000 as it was. :)

I particularly like using jeans as a reduct-ometer, because they don't have any give. When I slacked off on exercise after my back injury, the increasing snugness of the 46s was a good motivator to get me started again. ;) Trading down to 44s just raises the bar another notch.

The daily pushups and crunches and the dietary changes are a major factor here, I suspect. I'm jazzed. :)

Anyway, now it's off to gaming. Catcha later!

Yay, Spam. :P

Some dickweed is going to every vaguely-political LJ community and posting anti-Iraq-war spam.

I miss invite codes. :P
