Last Day



It will all be over this evening...

UPDATE: I've successfully survived my 24th and most likely final Christmas at UPS.

5 Days Till Exams Are Over, 14 Days Till Christmas

Apologies for the content deficit gentle readers. 

As partial compensation, here is some seasonally appropriate cheesecake, topped with sundry varieties of fruit.

Much Like This Individual...

...I've been distracted by trivialities that have caused me to loose focus regarding rather more consequential things that need to be dealt with.

Palate Cleanser

Recent posts have been less than inspirational, so here is a study of a serene tropical beach....and a watermelon.

A Test of Testable Things

Well there's been....TALK.


I walked into the cafeteria the other day and noted that all the cool kids were talking, presumably about cool things, so I walked over to say hi, but before i did I realized that they were actually venting about some dork...and then I realized, it was probably me so I hid behind the soda machine before they saw me and then skipped lunch and then I ran home and cut myself checked the blog in Epic, Opera, Vivaldi, Safari, Midori and Chrome and didn't see a problem but realized that the complaint was about IE...which I don't use because it tries to upgrade my Windows 7 into Windows 10...so I just gave up because the day was terrible since I'd already gotten a "D" in English because of something called a "run-on-sentence". 

Ahem...

I noted that my page was set at 25 posts per page, I've cut it down to 5. As a stress test,  since two other posts have embedded videos in lieu of content, I'll put this animated .gif  of a girl passionately explaining why duodecimal is just better.



Let me know if cutting the the page count addressed the issues.

Monotonous Meta Monologue

Hello gentle readers.

We're trying to check out the blogs compatibility with Vivaldi, and double-checking a few things in our 5 other browsers. One annoying peculiarity is apparent right away

Additionally, some combination of keystrokes associated with the "BACK" key reverts the page to the previous page in the tab...thereby dumping the post.

Naturally, this is a break from format and therefore of limited appeal to our readers. Thus, sacred honor dictates that we post this picture...



Because few things over the last several weeks have been quite as refreshing as Blizzard's response to those who feel that the greatest problem in the world is Tracer's epic bodankey.

As to the upcoming game itself, I thin....



Ahem.

While I detect the foeted aroma of sarcasm in that outburst, in fairness, it should be noted that we do count amongst our loyal readers those who are not explicitly catered to by the first image.

To that end...

All nekoboys are 18 years of age or older. proof of age was on file in annex C of section 42 of the basement of the Ministry of Education Truancy Division Sector 8, Orion Arm Local Office Copies Division, Located orbiting Alpha Centauri B Planet 3 Moon 2 Quadrant 1, Sector 81, Spoo County, at the corner of 8th Street and Dogwood Avenue and was retained there until the nekoboys alluded to reached the age of majority at which point such records were burned pursuant  to the child welfare act. That is our story, and we are sticking to it.

However, this can digress to an alarming degree since our diverse audience boasts a number with...unconventional interests.




...which would just not be keeping with our format and so that is why we generally subcontract such matters to 4-Chan.

Let's try a quotation now

 
...might not be so bad, with all the lazy bums we got panhandling relief nowadays, and living on my income tax and yours—not so worse to have a real Strong Man, like Hitler or Mussolini—like Napoleon or Bismarck in the good old days—and have ‘em really run the country and make it efficient and prosperous again. ‘Nother words, have a doctor who won’t take any back-chat, but really boss the patient and make him get well whether he likes it or not!” 
― Michael R. Meyer, It Can't Happen Here





Ok...that covers most formatting tools and our ongoing nightmares..
Perhaps that's enough for now.

UPDATE: Does anyone note any oddness?

The banner images are working now. I suspect I have a broken banner in the rotation. I still cant figure out quite what selection of keys causes the page to jump back though.

Aaaand.....We're Back

Midterms are over, though, there were other distractions over the weekend. While spring cleaning, I cut on the overhead light in the spare room, only to discover...to my considerable chagrin...that the light cover was being employed as an unlicensed flop house by half a dozen of the vast numbers of stinkbugs that have been seeking asylum in southeastern Virginia this winter. As I had the fan running to air out the aforementioned room, the aroma of stinkbug flambe' was distributed through the house in a most egalitarian manner. In other news, my heater core blew Friday night, at least I THINK that's what happened since the van suddenly filled with the subtle fragrance of antifreeze. Cutting the heater off is an acceptable work around for now. The rest of the weekend involved laundry, fixing a broken toilet, intermittent connectivity issues, and a bunch of ghouls who beset me after I jumped into a whirlpool to escape a particularly durable deathclaw


"That last item isn't so much an explanation as an admission."

Ahem...
In any event; as compensation for the disrupted posting we have provided some Hestia cheesecake below the fold. 
more...

Midterms Are Upon Us

Posting is, therefore, likely to be intermittent. Here, as atonement, is something to tide you over that seems to cover all bases.

Another Test Post

I just upgraded Parallells and now the blog looks all wonky on windows via my machine. 

I looked at it through a couple of other computers today and it looks fine there, so it's probably something to do with the recent software upgrades to my iMac, or it's specific to Midori.

Let's see if pictures work:



It's the Martini-Henry that really sells that picture.

Now lets try some tags:


Superscript test
Nope.
Subscript test
Nope.

Some things are just stupid. Some other things occasionally transcend that stupidity by embracing it. This may be one of those other things.


UPDATE: Well, we won't be using Midori for a while. Posting will resume shortly.

I Have Been Remiss in My Blogitude

Rooster Teeth has been remiss in getting the next episode of RWBY out after that gut wrenching cliffhanger they foisted on us two weeks ago.


To partially address both issues, here is Ruby Rose doing a dramatic  reading for your enjoyment.


I swear. It sounds like Random House has figured out how to print cooties.
