ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Just what is it about me that tells little old men to hold open automatic doors for me?

I mean, I should not complain! This is sweet and adorable but ... automatic doors. They open whenever you walk near them, sirs, even if it's just for me, you really don't have to stand out in the cold and keep your hand holding it open ...

1. Reply to this post with I AM SPARTACUS, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee

Found a used book store today! The owner is a very nice little old woman whose dog, Maggy, a golden retriever rescue (she's fifteen and spry), "helps run the place". Maggy loves men, because a man rescued her when she was a puppy, so she is always trying to find THAT MAN and give him kisses. 8( CUTE.

And then the lady asked if we weren't from far away, because if we were locals we could turn in old books and get store credit and she would order us shiny new things and she is going to be my new best friend. That is happening. I just wish I had known the store was there before handing my old kiddy books to my cousins.

Also: two months to the day (almost), I got an email back from LJ support! ... They cannot fix my keywords, which they borked, but they gave me a month of paid time and icons for my trouble. I am happy they care, but I would have been happier if they had cared two months ago. I would not have even needed the nice gift if they had told me then!

Thank you, eye doctor, for not informing any of your patients that
       1) you are closed on every Saturday in summer
       2) you have decided to go on vacation for two weeks
because my eyes still hurt and I can't go back to work today like I was supposed to. You're awesome. So awesome. Keep that up.

So instead of going to work this morning I went to the emergency room. FUN TIMES!

I couldn't keep my eyes open to see, which kind of makes driving hard. And unsafe. Keeping them open for more than three seconds made them feel dry and scratchy, like when you are in a staring contest and you haven't blinked for thirty seconds? Except it's only been two. And I had to fight to open my lids at all, so. Yeah. HA HA.

Called out of work (to my great dismay) and Ma drove me to both optometrists in town (mine CLEARLY SAYS they are open on Saturdays, but when we got there they had posted a hand-written sign saying they are officially closed on every Saturday now because it's summer).

The doctor at the ER had to hold my eyes open so he could even look at them. I was (and am still) so photosensitive that my eyes were spasming too hard for me to keep open on my own. I am officially banned from sunlight for the next few days. DOCTOR'S ORDERS.

Sssso yeah I have another intensely severe eye infection. My life, please fuck it. Bad enough this time that I am banned from both the day star AND work! I have a written notice from the ER that says as much, though I dread the concept of calling my manager. Enough that I have been putting it off by making even more icons. Because I could break 1000 for pirates if I try hard enough! someone hold me my eyes hurt

8:37 pm - This is not actually an update about my job, I AM ALSO SURPRISED.
Today I finally finished Les Misérables! 1460-something pages of my life right there. I like to imagine that it is a full 3000 pages in its original French. No lies, tears just started streaming down my face during Jean Valjean's final speech. I AM COMPLETELY PROUD OF MYSELF and I am so so so glad I actually read it ;A; Worth iittttt even if Victor Hugo is massively in love with the sound of his own voice.

But he made a capslock joke. I. I can't even be mad about all the pointless crap. Damn you, sir.

Definitely going to need a new book to start, buuuut I want to go shorter. I need to see the end of this story in under months. I am thinking Frankenstein, since it is conveniently located where I can find it. Alternatively, I could reread The Phantom of the Opera for the umpteenth time, but then people might start thinking I have a thing for musical theater. HMM.

Also my girlfriend is adorable I am just saying.

So I am alive and keywordless and everything is seriously boring with my life, guys. Nothing exciting happens outside of the occasional loud and exhilarating crazy at work. I particularly enjoy everyone who has asked me where we keep our tents and then gotten extremely pissed off to the point of bitching at me in the next aisle when I explain that We don't have any tents in, sir. Discount store, kids! We can only sell what other companies and stores don't want!

Also, someone needs to kick my ass so I will bother to write more. Goddamn. A dozen awesome and adorably and badass ideas, and I can't be bothered to write three paragraphs to finish off the fic I am working on presently to get to them. Good going, self. You are an idiot.

Bluh. Maybe ice cream and loan payments will make this all okay. That is a great breakfast, right? Right.

1:12 pm - UP IS DOWN
So I never updated about it, but it's really relevant now, MY CAR DIED. Ker-dead. The mechanic told me that it was a miracle I never went careening off the cliff with the whole thing on fire, and proceeded to tell everyone in earshot that I had to be the best driver on the planet just to keep this motherfucker on the road. This is only a little bit of an exaggeration, given that everything was broken. The tire rods, the suspension, springs, shocks, axle, frame, all broken or about to snap.

So he told us he would never in good conscience allow us to drive it anywhere but to trade it in.

Spent the last few days trying to be a one-car household, and it sucked. And then today we went to the dealership, prepared to be told that the car was too far gone to be traded for anything, but we figured we may as well try because trying never hurts.

And the bank just called and approved my loan I HAVE A NEW* CAR

aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh feelings aahhhhhhhhhh


also I am a classy mofo who can't resize pictures due to excitement oh noCollapse )

* it's a 2005 and it has 87,000 miles but it is new for me I have never had a car this young, my last two were so old I didn't even need the title to get them registered

4:46 pm - actually, this is pretty gross. true, but gross.
Today I almost died while driving my car by choking to death on a perfectly round cough drop. Clearly I did not die, so I shall share with you the story of how I lived.

When I was a small child, I loved penguins. Scamper the Penguin, to be precise, but oh how I loved penguins. Whenever my mother would make hard-boiled eggs for sandwiches and salads I would select the nicest egg, take it from its cold water bath once it was hand-touchably warm, and make for it a nest of pillows and blankets. Then I would take care of this egg, because I was a penguin, and I was doing a very good job as a penguin mommy because my egg was warm, and penguin eggs must be warm. Then it got cold and I ate it, because I am also a person. ANYWAY.

I am the best penguin mama.

As you may know, penguins regurgitate food for their young. This is not a skill I possess, because I am not really a penguin. At least, not on their level. Yes, children, I was so into penguins once that I taught myself how to regurgitate just a little. It only works for a minute or so after I eat, and while I am aware this is disgusting, I had had the forethought to chase a liter of water (chugged) with a citrusy cough drop.

Somehow I have become that person who sucks at replying to people who comment! OH NO!

Quick updates as I am le tired:

- Boas ... quit?
- I think it had something to do with a text message someone sent about her? That the manager was like "Wellllll it happened off company time so there is nothing I can do" and she RAGEQUIT EVERYTHING
- doctors still cannot decide what is even going on with grandma
- my body temperature is fluctuating and that sucks
- TODAY I DID ALL OF MY FREIGHT 8| even though I had to fight through a labyrinth of seasonal freight to get to it
- porn is not writing itself so I should do that 8(

... and actually I had a perfect score in attendance. A brilliant gold star, full points. O_o Somehow. The manager's face lit up like a Christmas tree when he saw it, I... guess I am the only one who managed this? Probably because of my intense paranoia about being late :B Anyway, I scored mostly OUTSTANDING!! and some MEETS EXPECTATIONS FULLY and only one NEEDS IMPROVEMENT GODDAMN.

Improvement is needed in moving freight. I would have laughed but I was too busy thinking I had already told me so. I just need to man up and deal with it faster, is all? Though to be completely fair I was only at work for two full days this week so my pallet can suck me for not being done until last night.

Whatever! Eighteen cent raise! Slowly climbing some sort of corporate ladder! Maybe!

Man I keep forgetting to update ...

Work! Is still work! Boas and I are actually kind of bros now that I am not stuck working under her all the time!? Craziness! Zaniness!

Got moved to clothing for two and a half weeks, during which time no one worked HBC stock at all and it piled up. Moved back to HBC, things happened, don't care to go through it again, but after two weeks and five trucks I HAVE CLEARED ALL OF THE FREIGHT. ALL OF IT. EVERY FREIGHT.

Today we got a truck and my to do list was entirely "FINISH TODAY'S FREIGHT" so I was just FUCK YES! GONNA FREIGHT! But then manager did not unload the truck until a half hour before I left. Also, I spent two hours on register because our card system went to hell and it was taking upwards of 15 minutes to process a single credit card transaction.

UH WHAT ELSE HAS BEEN HAPPENING I dunno internet, mostly work. Mostly work.

Also I am getting paid to sit in my house and eat delicious fucking ham on Easter. This is the best.

... I need pirate icons.

It was raining all day yesterday, and the snow in our front yard all melted away into ice. It was pretty gross and slippery, but I didn't have time to deal with it before heading to work.

When I came home last night, there was a mere inch and a half of snow over the driveway and roads, a dusting of white and serene.

Now I would like to bestow upon you all what I woke up to this morning.


I believe the only appropriate response, aside from the obvious icon, is fuck this noise.

edit: AN HOUR AND A HALF LATER and after five people and a snowblower, we can almost get out of our driveway. Almost.

BUT NOW EVEN MORE PICTURESCollapse ) My face is so impressed with snowpocalypse the third you guys. So impressed.

You know, I. I really do hate the 3D craze sweeping the globe right now! Partially because that is a super dumb thing to tack onto every film (particularly in instances where it ADDS NOTHING or was an afterthought and therefore doesn't even matter), but also because 3D just doesn't work for me. I am going to blame my astigmatism for that, though.

So really, it is a dumb thing which is dumb and should make people feel dumb, except. Except for this thing right here. Right here.

Sadako in 3D.

Fuck man, she's going to crawl out of every tv in 3D AND IT WON'T EVEN WORK FOR ME IN THE ONE INSTANCE I WOULD WANT TO SEE IT

9:57 pm - D --> be absol00tely ridiculous
Today I was STRONGLY in t00ne with my zodiac Homestuck troll. The details!

Got to work and I heard the scariest sentence ever uttered by man: "There is no CSC tonight, you are running the service desk alone." HA HA HA well. Well. I am not trained on the phones. I do not have permission to take returns. I have zero CSC training, but I was told I would be doing a CSC's job all night!

Pretty much just stood there, sweating profusely. And then the front end supervisor came over and gave me a project -- folding towels. 144 towels. All folded. While sweating.

Basically I am the best Sagittarius alive. Though I was SURE I was going to die! Because on the way home I locked eyes with a moose standing in the ditch at the side of the road. Pretty positive that my digestive tract starting functioning backwards there for awhile. I LOOKED DEATH IN THE EYE AND WALKED AWAY, I AM A MAN

Reality: "Fuck you alarm clock Imma hit snooooooooooooozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....."

and then I woke up with just fifty minutes to do all of the things and no bra in sight. This is what winners feel like.

And in a move that surprises absolutely no one, I finally went and apped the kuchisake-onna who has been haunting my icon roster for years. Slightly less obvious than Goku? Maybe? Please?
