Hmmm.

Let's compare TOZ and TFY.

Both have names with three words, easily turned into three letter abbreviation.

Both serve in the military.

Both married.

Both male.

Both of similar ethnic background.

Yet one can get done more with texts than calls, and the other does more with calls than texts.

Clearly, they must be merged into one perfectly balanced communications unit.

Possibly one that Cobra will fear.

Edit: YOOOOOOOOOOOO NUDITY!!

Lol. This sounds like an argument I have with my husband. He hates texting. Calls rarely work for me. He calls anyways. And then the argument ends with him wondering why dinner is late. (Because he wouldn't get off the phone and I can only do so much with only one hand free. All he wanted to know was what was for dinner. And then can't figure out why I was mad. It's like that.)

*Glomps*

Hi! Haven't seen you in a while! HowareyoudoingareyoubetterwhataboutAvalon?!?!?

Lol. Hey, good to see you too. Yes, I'm feeling better. And I will be updating Avalon shortly. I was working on answering PMs and now I'm getting ready to move the action forward. Er, out of curiosity, how fireproof is Jacob? ;P

I knew the army had the Mighty Morphin technology!

You fools! It's only a matter of time before it's stolen.


Maintenance is working in the hall bathroom today, replacing the tile surround in the shower. Because we all agreed that this having the tiles fall off the walls every couple months had gotten way old. Cute vintage details are not cute anymore when they won't stop falling apart. So new tile. Which means that there is much loud banging and such while they demo the old tile. I had to shut the cats into the back bedroom along with their litter box, food and water, and toy bin (yes, they have a toy bin..it's great because the bin is actually one of the toys because cats love boxes) so they would be out of the way of the construction. And they freaked out all morning until I came and sat in here with them. After about five minutes they totally calmed down and now they're peacefully napping as if they didn't spend all morning freaking out as if the world was ending. :)

"your dad is an enormous poopoo"

Stellar quote from my dream by Loki, in which Eren Jaeger is the son of Odin for some reason and releasing his paternal frustration by exploding himself because he's also a huge biomechanical robot and everyone is trying to talk him out of it

Eren also corrects my being misgendered mid-suicidal rampage, A+

No idea how Loki managed to misgender me because he is ergi af, then again my dream was an absolutely butchered variation on norse myth at best

Re: people talking about not liking interacting with people:

Honestly, I like being around people a lot, it's just that I'm phenomenally bad at it. I can't read people's body language at all, and I'm constantly having to ask people how they feel about something because I can't read their facial expressions. Sometimes I feel like an explorer on a planet full of really interesting aliens.

Meh. They might seem interesting because they are alien to you... Will that survive closer examination, though?

Yeah, being socially awkward has its drawbacks. In my case people assume that I'm rebelling against society all the time. Reality check: I'm over here going, wait, what? That was a rule? Since when? Why didn't anybody tell me? I totally had no idea...

And I'm supposed to be teaching the kidlet how to navigate social interactions...poor thing is doomed. :/

Or he'll just learn the usefulness of pretending you meant to do that. :P

I sympathize. I can't really tell sarcasm from normal speak, and I'm kind of a spaz. I just play my spazziness up and then people think I'm either entertaining or aggravating, both of which I can live with.

Also facial expressions are overrated on account of requiring eye contact while talking. Which is made of awkward. :)

Something that I think is kind of jarring for people I interact with-- I'm OK-looking, seemingly put-together, and can mimic normal patterns of conversation fairly well, so when I do slip up (for example, suddenly asking someone to explain how they're feeling), it's all the more noticeable. My old boss at Papa John's used to get complaints from customers saying that I was weirding them out. I believe the phrase "wax dummy" was used once (my boss thought that one was hilarious).

Sarcasm is another stumbling block. I can dish it out all day long, but when it comes to picking up on it, it's really hit-or-miss. Maybe 50% of the time, I get it, and the rest of the time I need to ask.

due to an odd mix of extroversion and immigrant acculturation, I look at people's lips when they talk.

My eyes are drawn to motion, like a cat's. If somebody has fidgety hands or dangly earrings, I can't look away.

Sorry I'm late. I've been failing to make cider.

I don't think I have ever stared at someone's nose. Ask me to describe the noses of my family, friends and acquaintances and I'm sure I couldn't, apart from my Mum's, because it's the same as mine only bigger.

Selective nose blindness is a terrible thing.

I would drive over except for that restraining order that you and your wife took out on me. ~grins~ That and the distance.
