Quick announcement for the LJ crowd: as of 4pm today, Evan and I will be homeowners (uh, huhuhuhuhuh. homowner). The process has been long and arduous, so if I fail to post the nearly six-month long saga in an upcoming entry, I'll just say now, it's been an ordeal. But it's about to pay off. All week I've been unable to sleep due to a nagging fear that some bullshit will come up and blow the whole deal, and when I have slept, I've woken up because I have no idea how much ladders cost and I have to go look it up RIGHT NOW. Wish us luck.Because it's Friday. And there's nothing else to do.
Renob reminded me I was remiss in reposting his question and your answers from the other week. The OCD in me loves that we got a nice, consistent number of provided answers: renob423 -- there is a friday the 13th remake planned for 2009. will it be better than the halloween remake of last year, and as a series which of the two were better as a whole? will the new sleepaway camp live up to the greatness of the original ?
-- it will be very hard to beat the new halloween although as a series friday the 13th is better overall, and if return to sleepaway camp can keep the intergirty of 1 it will be the sequal worth waiting 20 years for (yeah yeah
-- Correct Answer: Nightmare on Elm Street.
-- If they don't have a nude coed asking the baffled, masked killer, "see anything you like?," I ain't going, and that doesn't even cost anything to put in the movie.
absolutcalm -- Now that Dakora "What The Hell Is A FCSILF?" Fanning is growing up, what would be the most distburbing childstar-turned-teen/adult celebrity hook-ups? Former Child Star ILF. Jeez, you got LLILF but not that?
Somewhere in the Elysium Fields of the Child Star afterlife, the girl from Poultergiest and Brad Renfro are enjoying a scandalous tryst.

Jonathan Lipnicki (the "human head weighs 10lb" kid) and anybody. Man that kid aged poorly. So did a lot of the boy child stars.
eideteker -- Twelve-steppers always talk about the first step on the road to recovery being the point at which you hit rock bottom. Say you're a celebrity on a downward slide, but you're not quite there yet. What are some good ways to speed your plunge to rock bottom?

Pumpkin Spice. Just in time for the holidays.
pooplord -- I am required to work a fancypants evening event as part of my job even though I am a web developer. Is this fair? Note: we are not "allowed" to drink. Note #2, I begged them to let me monitor the staff room all night instead of working registration.
Everybody would rather monitor the staff room than do registration. Your meeting planner has heard it all before: "I'm in IT! I'm socially retarded!" | "Can't I sit in the staff room playing games on my cell phone all night while you guys work?"
Feh. You probably will get some sort of comp ime for it. As if those of us who have to schlep to events on a regular basis, flying out on Sundays to prep for the 7am board meeting Monday get paid overtime or anything for it.
Some of you may remember the old stories of KTD. Once at a work fancypants evening event he got so drunk he hit on a hooker, fell on the floor and had to be carried up to his room. He is why you're not "allowed" to drink.
That's fucking bullshit, man. Seriously.
And two decent questions here makes it a threefer for renob this week: renob423 -- what happened to h"question of the day"tothem? did the monkeys grow tired of her testing and revolt?
In the mail the other day I received a piece of slate with "HM NOT LEAVE US. MONKEYS LOVE HM. SEND GRAPES." scratched on it. I'm not sure what it means.
In order to make herself seem more like one of the monkeys, she had the middle bone in her thumb removed and the tendon slashed. Since then she has been unable to use a mouse or type, but she can do pullups like nobody's business.
Her research has been groundbreaking in the development of monkey social and cognitive skills. So groundbreaking, in fact, that the monkeys have decided it shall not be published. "No...we won't be telling them that".
After the revolt she's been unable to do anything but sit in the shower scrubbing and scrubbing, knowing nothing she can do will ever get the poo off. Never clean again.
renob423 -- a guy in my apartment sleeps in the laundry room (no he's not homeless, he lives down the hall in an apartment) what the fuck is up with that?
has been known to sleep in bathtubs. Perhaps, like cats, these guys enjoy sleeping next to the cooling comfort of fiberglass.
Ever since mommy told him he'd have to spend the night in the laundry room before she can forgive him and start loving him again, whenever he fucks up at work or lies to his girlfriend, he feels compelled to do it.
He's very, very paranoid about people stealing his socks & undies.
Hey, the urban legend never talks about a guy waking up in the laundry room without his kidneys. Think about it.
The thing I'm most excited about for the new house:
Painting. After almost 10 years of apartment living, I'll finally be able to look at walls that aren't seashell white.
The cricket sound in the backyard.
Being more than 10 feet from a neighbor/being about 5 miles away from the screaming girl across the hall.
Having the space to finally throw a party or two.
