Why does the ACCU-CHEK Nano jingle sound like one for a toy marketed to little girls? Specifically it makes me think of baby doll commercial jingles, both in the tune and in the lyrics (seriously - 'feels so right'? 'You're the one for me'?)

Srsly, guys, listen to this.

Was this intentional (the woman's hand at the beginning and the extra-friendly guy's voice suggests they might be marketing it to women, for some reason - I didn't realize blood glucose meters had such a wide market that you might want to divide it?!) or a complete marketing fail? I'm really curious about how this happened.

P.S. upon reviewing the commercial, would just like to point out that if there's an asterisk on a stat, you want to read where that goes. I am not sure what 'based on a tighter accuracy specification' means, not being familiar with how blood glucose meters are tested; it sounds like a good thing, but it also sounds like they could mean they ignored outliers. My question is why they used a tighter specification rather than the standard one.

That is all.

Okay first of all you know that thing that happens sometimes where you get a new album by an artist you like and you're all 'some of these songs I am not sure about' or even 'oh god this one song is terrible'

But you keep listening to the album because the other songs are great, and eventually those songs that you used to not like become like, your favorite songs on the album?

No? IDK maybe this just happens to me because I freak out about change, did you know I would still be using a portable CD player instead of my iPod shuffle nano (gd these ipod names) except they don't sell portable CD players any more, I am serious, I watched the selection at Best Buy dwindle down to two selections and now it's just gone.

Okay anyways my POINT WAS that happens to me all the time, and the only song I didn't like on Imaginareum was Slow, Love, Slow and then I got it stuck in my head in the shower a little bit ago, so I guess it's happening again 6 u 9

Alright that was really inane, now for something cooler, this is a conversation from earlier:

OMG cut because holy shit long post is long )



(that one was probably an exaggeration)

ETA: it's snowing

It started just a little bit ago when I let Tripper out. I mean literally, I was watching for him to come in, and it started to snow.

IDEK, I think this weather is just messing with me now. Maybe we will get enough snow to actually make snow pokemon though. But I left my boots at school, oh god, SO MUCH WOE, HOW WILL I DO GRAVEYARD EXPLORING WITH TRIPPER OR PLAY IN THE SNOW WITH NO BOOTS ;n;

[livejournal.com profile] outdatedclocks has pointed out that my lower-back/hip problems, and my leg problems, are probably all related to the issues I have with my feet (lack of arches?). I've been making do with CVS-brand arch support pads, but they're not really enough, and I'd like to be able to do some cardio and upper-body stuff again, which I can't really now since my back hurts alllll the time. I'd been putting off talking to my doctor about it because of my terrible experiences with my last one...even though this one's shown no indication she's suddenly going to go all 'you're lying, you must be sneaking nachos in the middle of the night, fatty' on me. In fact, she'll probably be happy to help me out, since she wants me exercising before I go on T since I have a genetic disposition towards hypertension (dad's been hospitalized for it).

BTW, for those curious about the whole doctor saga, since I've posted it around a few places but not actually here at my main journal I think (since I just realized last night [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom had never read the whole thing)...I submitted the whole thing to First, Do No Harm (excellent blog BTW) so you can read it here (it's so long I don't see a need to copy+paste it here P:)

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom, we might be hanging out this weekend :D or rather, probably are. I am still working out the logistics, I think I'll stay on campus this weekend and take the train into the city. It would mean missing a therapy appointment, but I've skipped weeks in the past (or rather, therapist has cancelled on me) so I know it won't do any damage emotionally or to my comfort level with him.

Okay I really should go to class 6 u 9;;

Sometimes I wonder if I should find a new 'lol' icon and then I realize this one is really the most appropriate for the situations I tend to need an 'lol' icon for


Oh wait no that doesn't happen actually, the worst I get as a Christian is jerks on the internet going on about sky fairies

Also I wanted to include the Fox News response to Jon Stewart's War on Christmas, but it won't let me embed it so here's a link.

No really, it says 'embed disabled by request'. I didn't even know you could do that. Huh.

Has anybody ever actually heard someone say 'you should say 'happy holidays', not 'merry Christmas''? because I have ONLY HEARD IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND from people banging on about this War On Christmas.

Tripper's not allowed on the new furniture.

This is a rule I don't entirely agree with. So...the other night when we were home alone, I let him up on the couch.

And then took photos as he tried to remember how to use couches xD

This is some of the funniest shit I have ever seen :D (SFW; it's Garfield comics with Garfield replaced with a normal, non-talking cat)

Mostly because it is, in my experience, a completely realistic portrayal of living with a cat. But I also might just talk way too much to my animals.

On a related note:

Paige and Nikka nap together!

On a related note to the related note: I have finally gotten Paige to watch The Grudge with me by explaining the theory I subscribe to that the haunting of the house is actually caused by the family's(/Toshio's) cat, which has aged into a bakeneko (magical cat/cat demon with two tails) and is terrorizing people using what it observed of its now-dead people.

And now mom has come to sit in here and ask us to explain everything that happens (we're like five minutes into the movie) and interrupt the movie with vaguely tangential anecdotes ("so on facebook I saw these people talking about how their cat got stuck in a wall...") and then ask us to explain what she missed while she was talking. Argghhhh.
