Oh, all right already. This is, as rmd says, strangely compelling.

[livejournal.com profile] rmd and I were talking, and I wonder: how many people could one put "on tilt" at once by breastfeeding at the average poker table?

A podcast (Slice of Sci-Fi or one of its brethren) introduced me to Xombie, a continuing flash-animated story set in a world with sentient zombies.

Tom Smith forwards the important question, "How would the Mighty Thor re-interpret contemporary pop hits?" Smite Me, Infant, One More Time

[livejournal.com profile] dictionary_wotd entries that I haven't known this year so far: daedal, rebarbative, brummagem, edacious, aubade, titivate, eleemosynary, epigone

A new dinosaur: the Dracorex Hogwartsia. (beware popup ads) Hee!

In the "they did a study to demonstrate that?" department, Verbal abuse triggers adult anxiety, depression. The deuce you say.

And here's someone who doesn't understand "comfort re-reading", never rereads books. To each her own and all... re-reading is a huge thing for me. Fantasy series and children's/YA books especially, but also Shakespeare, Sherlock Holmes, mysteries (yes!)*, golden age SF, Jeffrey Archer novels, science/math fact books, you name it. I adore the ritual of re-reading a series before the latest book comes out. I've done that with Mercedes Lackey, Laurell K. Hamilton (not anymore, though), Orson Scott Card (ditto), and J.K. Rowling. Heck, my whole library is things I might theoretically re-read. Otherwise, why own 'em?

I love the idea of secular relics. Hee.

Scenes from Minoan life staged with Barbies. May take a while to load; be sure you see the last image on the page. Not worksafe if your work frowns on naked doll breasts.

A hilarious billboard juxtaposition.

A recent scam alert: fraudsters calling to say there's a warrant out because you missed jury duty and flustering you into giving out personal info.

Naked doll breasts!

* I notice that my phrasing implies that Sherlock Holmes and mysteries are separate things. Well, in my mind they are. I have to have a fair shot at figuring it out for it to be a mystery.

Riffing off of [livejournal.com profile] arsmith's entry of a few weeks back:

[livejournal.com profile] clauclauclaudia's LiveJournal popularity rating is 4.73/10.
[livejournal.com profile] clauclauclaudia is more popular than 99.57% of all LiveJournal users.
[livejournal.com profile] clauclauclaudia is more popular than 78.5% of their mutual friends.

How popular are you?
LJ Popularity created by [livejournal.com profile] thehumangame.


I find this interesting. It's a logarithmic scale. The median popularity rating is 1.25, and, eyeballing, I'm in the top third of the popularity range for my mutual friends list, but all but about four of them are above the median.

Which means we're all freaks (well, almost all). Usual LiveJournal usage is to have a solitary journal or a couple friends, and *not* to have friended anyone you don't personally know. What I think of as the "LiveJournal experience" is to be part of these overlapping webs of acquaintance and shared culture... but it ain't necessarily so. Or if it is, then the essence of LiveJournal is experienced by a relatively small proportion of LiveJournal users. I think that's more likely.

So, under the new scheme where everybody gets username.livejournal.com as their journal address, I can finally use a free rename to get rid of my "_" if I so desire. (I tried to name my journal "Claudia-" way back when--"Claudia" was taken, and "Claudia-" is my usual IRC handle--"claudia_" is the result.

What should I rename it? Vote for as many as you like.

[Poll #665556]

The Clau (Claw) is a Toy Story reference, Clau-Clau is an I, Claudius reference. Any other questions?

Edit: Thanks, all! Decision made. But keep voting if you want. :)

I forgot that this would update. I further didn't realize that the update would use the same image URL as the original MindMap, thereby mangling the original imagemap. This time I've saved the image locally, so if this breaks I can replace the image with http://www.bantha.org/~padme/images/claudia_2005-mindmap.gif ... but for now:
