I went 2 whole days without updating my LJ!

Ack.

On Friday night, I saw the first showing of the Harry Potter Choose-your-own-adventure improv at bookpeople. It was a very great format for the kids, who excitedly yell out their choices.

Saturday I was mooning around, waiting for Harry Potter. I believe that's the correct colloquism. Mooning around. Anyways, Amazon was sending it to my old address cos their software isn't smart enough to realize that I've moved and deleted the old address. So I went there 3 times. No HP :( I finally gave up and went to BookStop and got one of the 3 "damaged" copies left. (It had a small tear in the cover). As I was purchasing it, the books sold out.

I'm half done with the book.

Today I have improv rehearsal with Bob McNichol, that will most likely be awesome. (We had Dave Buckman last week, and it gave the spark back to my improv.) And I am guest teaching the Bryn Gwlad renaissance dance guild this evening.

Yesterday I also got into a flame war which started in the austin community LJ, which made me realize: online flamewars are idiotic and truly a waste of time. Mainly because you're not seeing the person face to face, so it's not like you're making "real" choices in how you behave. Which seems to give more license to be rude, similar to road rage.

when I feel particularly road-rageful, I'll drop my non-driving hand (usually left) to right by my knee and I'll flick them off - just to make me feel better, not to actually *do* anything.

my college has a problem with online flame-wars. We have a "Community" bulletin that really is an anarchic free-for-all. Usually it's clogged with "come see this show!" postings or "Lecture Tuesday!" notices but every once in a while it explodes in fits of heinous rage that usually have some topic at the core but swiftly dis-evolve into meaningless spiteful drivel.

Did you get to the part where Ron decapitates Harry and we discover Ron is really Voldemort's robot son?

I go two weeks at a time without updating my LJ!
I didn't know you were a Harry Potter fan. I guess cause you haven't been all "OMGHarryPotterBook7SQUEEE!!!" for the past two months.

I don't know what mooning around means, but the image of you wandering through Austin mooning everyone makes me giggle :)

I think it is a British idiom, though I wouldn't turn safe search off on Google images if I were you.

Flamewars
How's the saying go ? Even if you win the rat-race, you're still a rat.

I agree, flamewars are pointless. It's not as if they convince anyone of anything anyway.

It takes some maturity though, to simply state ones view of something or other, and then simply walk away and let whomever idiot struggle on with themselves.

I sure as hell posted to threads long after the point of diminishing (or more correctly zero) returns often enough. I like to think it happens more seldom these days though.
