amused, silly, ha ha only serious

This is your brain. This is your brain on AIM at midnight with a Japanese speaker.

Jas: Heh.... if Mahou ever met Ei, though, she'd nearly instantly mallet him.
Brent: Why?
Jas: Ei's a Unix wizard, right?
Jas: "Wizard" or "sorcerer" in Japanese is translated to "mahoutsukai" - literally, "magic-user".
Jas: Mahou means magic.
Jas: Ergo, as soon as Ei said what he is, Mahou will Mallet him.

Layer upon layer of puns...

Oh, and a minute or two later it develops that the Japanese term for "Unix wizard" is probably something like "unikusu no mahoutsukai". Fascinating stuff, languages...too bad they're so fscking hard.

I just cleared out the tabs in my DeadAIM IM window. I'm left with three conversations, all with girls, none of whom I have a particular interest in "going out" with (to use a term that doesn't quite apply to the Internet).

Does that seem...I dunno...weird to anyone here? :^)

I sit here clutching useless lists
And keys for doors that don't exist
I crack my teeth on pearls
I tear into the history
Just show me what it means to me in this world

'Cause I am due for a miracle
I’m waiting for a sign
I’ll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes
'Til I understand or go blind
