I like being a mess. It's who I am.

I've been distracted, as Vel finally talked me into getting onto Facebook. I have just spent entirely too much time racing my Fluff Friend and trying to feed him to get his points up. I bought good food for that little bastard and the last two things I fed him came back saying "Disgusting!" and his points don't go up. Goddamn panda. Betting on the Fluff races is really addictive, you can only race your pet five times a day though.

Uh, anyway.

Might as well watch the Emmys tonight, even though I'm only familiar with about four of the shows... I'm curious about a new show coming out in the fall, Reaper, whose pilot I believe is directed by Kevin Smith. The bitch of it? It's on at 8pm on Tuesdays, right up against House, M.D. Eh, I wasn't that curious, sorry.

This was obviously written early yesterday...we didn't watch the end of the Emmys, since it had a fairly obvious outcome. Who does a huge pointless homage mid-show for no other purpose than to shoot a load all over one particular show? Though I was stoked to see Kiefer Sutherland pick up Best Actor rather that James Gandolfini if Hugh Laurie wasn't going to get it (that's what the Golden Globes are for, they have some taste).

I was a little sad that the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert bit was a little lame (though they didn't--I presume--write it), but dignity was recovered in the "Let's give this to Steve Carell!" moment when Ricky Gervais failed to appear for his award.

Facebook has also, sadly, taken me back to my high school days. I force some youtube on you now, from my graduating year.

I thought that these were the worst Emmy's I could remember. Secrest absolutely sucked!

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Facebook - don't do it.

Triana said... didn't know there was racing....I do now though....AHHH!!!!!1

Ellen Aim said...

Skyler'sD: They were pretty awful. Seacrest is such an embarrassment, whose idea was THAT?

Cherry: Too late.

Triana: Watch out. I'm finally getting the hang of it, though...

I haven't been able to win picking two fluff friends. Damn, I always lose all my money. I get a little and then it's gone. This is why I never, ever gamble.

I never have enough money for a fluffy habitat.

Is your panda ripping ass to shreds?

Facebook is a black hole for time.

Triana said...

Dude, Dandra is like winning me money big time. That's one fast dragon you got there!

Veloute said...

Yeah, but she doesn't always win, thus I lose the money.

I think if I gave her lots of pizza and coffee, we could be unstoppable.

Ellen Aim said...

Vel: I haven't been brave enough to try the two-at-a-time, I lose enough just picking one! My panda is getting HIS ass ripped to shreds!

Triana: Dandra never wins for me! And then when my panda wins but I didn't bet on him I feel bad.

Vel: Man, I gave mine a burger (it was pricey, too!) and he thought it was disgusting and his fph didn't move. Stupid panda.

Veloute said...

Dandra's favorite foods so far: burger (I think), pizza, steak (of course, it's what? 80 bucks?) choco-mango thing, and coffee. This is my kind of pet. Triana's little fluffy bunny actually kicked my ass all over the grass today.

I .just. figured out I can bet on more than one animal. I don't mean the two at a time one. I have to say, it doesn't really help.

Oh, and Alanis Morisette is a high school memory? I am OLD, dude. Wow.

Triana said...

Damn! Jiji never wins when I'm watching! Crazy rabbit!

Stanislav and Dandra lost me money last night. Can you believe they blocked facebook from work?? WTF??? Now I can't race during my lunch hour.

I'm not addicted. I'm not.

Ellen Aim said...

Tell ME about work blocking facebook!! I was embarrassed and angry all at once.


Can't I make my panda give out sexual favors for money? No?

Ellen Aim said...

Oh and yes, Alanis, so high school, sorry. Graduating year if it makes you feel better.

It took me forever as well to realize I could bet on two at the same time, you're not alone. Good times.

Veloute said...

It doesn't.

Your panda's teeth glow in the dark.

You know, Jiji and Stanislav are turning my pet into dragon pulp.
