slemslempike: (red dwarf: temporary genius)
I've never pretended to be a culinary genius, or indeed at all proficient in the kitchen. I like ready meals, and quite often I don't manage to cook those properly either. However, today I accidentally inhaled chicken flavoured powder from one of those sachets you put in supernoodles when I opened it with overmuch elan, a little bit too close to my nose. I didn't think I was quite that incompetent. Fortunately, it was the 15p knock-off instead of the 8p one, so it was slightly less gritty a mishap than might otherwise have been. Equally happily, the brand is still too cheap to have little dried flakes of fake vegetables, so there aren't dramatically rehydrated peas in my nostril. I am quite proud of the fact that, even in this terribly confusing moment, with the surprise of the pain and the humiliation of ineptitude creeping over me, I managed to turn my head away from the pan of noodles before I sneezed it out. Oh yeah. No naturally occurring substances in my lunch. The noodles tasted rather nice. Perhaps they felt more chickeny because of the chemicals welded to my cilia.

Also: this is my 1000th entry.

I have always wanted to do an anonymous meme. I love reading other people's. But whenever there's a spate of them I realise too late, so that everyone has fatigue, and their capacity to be secretively bitchy/scandalous/revelatory/deep/shallow etc is ended. But now I have remembered. I have no logging. I also actually proper promise never to turn it on suddenly as I have seen some evil people do. That is bad. So yes.

Secrets! Bitchiness! Revelations! Thoughts! Criticism! All shall be mine. Please. It'll be fun!

P.S. Also, the right answer was sultanas. Reemmber this for next time.

Taken from just about everybody: Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.I only have about 35, and these aren't what I would call my main ones. )

Right. There is apparently a whole lot of sexin' going on which I appear to be missing out on. This is hardly fair. Fair would be spreading it around equally. Okay, so that means that everyone only gets like five minutes of groping, but I feel that's better than a select few getting all the goodness. (Of course, since I have thought of this, I get to have lots of sex. Uh oh, that's how communism keeps tripping up...) The sex and lesser spotted varieties of that type weren't included in the poll because I was more interested in things that people had done specifically for other people, kind of altruism, however small. I think I personally would be incapable of having altruistic sex, although I am more than willing to try in the pursuit of a good time cause.

Apart from the sex, here's what I found interesting. )

Am still waiting for feedback from the report in the way of what papers to write from Supervisor. One of the journals I was looking at charges contributors $65 per page for submissions - is this normal? The journal itself seems to be a respected one.

I had a good moan this morning with the office manager about everything but especially the crapness of this place and especially Supervisor, including attitudes towards gender. Then Nice RA came over and bought me mid-morning cake and drink because I forgot my wallet today.

I am quite bored. I don't want to play games (but if I DID, I bloody well WOULD, and only a slight sense of the ridiculous stops me from playing them even though I don't want to), so here is A Poll. No-one can see the answers except me, so you'd better be damn salacious in your responses.

Help take my mind off things.

If you leave a comment, I will draw one of your interests VERY BADLY in paint. I can't draw even with an actual pencil, and I only have access to a touchpad mouse, so I cannot emphasise the VERY BADLY enough. EXTREMELY APPALLING and almost certainly BARELY RECOGNISEABLE interests, that's what's on offer.

Ooh! Lovefilm just sent me Ed Wood.
