sofiaviolet: a well-loved set of watercolors (paint)


I've created a character for LARPing in the desert participating in the MCR/Killjoys shenanigans. If this is relevant to your interests, check out the Violet Menace on Twitter, tumblr, and Dreamwidth.

    [ profile] brenden's now-deleted sockpuppet trolling of the [ profile] news post included taunting a user about having Asperger's.
  • [personal profile] thedivinegoat: "Can I talk to you" Troll redux
    Just a heads up, the "Can I talk to you" Troll seems to have increased his activity again, only this time is taking advantage of the Facebook Connect.

    I'm still updating the original post with any new pseudonyms that come to light, if you or any of your friends have come across new ones, please let me know.
  • Social/Justice
    Solomon's threat is the threat of fairness; Solomon's justice is that he restores right human relationships. Justice is not measured by a pattern -- of uniformity or otherwise -- *or* by a fair process which must logically produce fair results. Justice occurs only when it supports just human relationships. It doesn't matter how fair the process, if a beggar starves while a rich man feasts *this is not justice*, because justice is about having the right human relationships. "Social justice", in my thinking, is a concept of justice that is still focussed, as of old, not on who has the "stuff", but on the relationships between people that the "stuff" (money, property) is tracking. We need a modifier because "justice" unadorned now refers to the process of law, e.g. in "Department of Justice".
  • [personal profile] copperbadge: THE .DOC FILE OF J ALFRED PRUFROCK
    This morning I was asked to change my password on my work computer, as I must do every four months. And I sat there waiting for it to authorise my new password, and I thought, I have measured out my life in login codes.

    And, as it so often does, then my brain screwed me out of several hours of productivity.

sofiaviolet: from WWII British propaganda: crown and text: keep calm and carry on (keep calm and carry on)


Yeah, I know. But getting used to the full-time job has been really rough this time around. IDK.

The BARCC Blogathon auctions are running through 2010-08-03, 17:00 Eastern.


Work was fun today. In that special way where my eyes aren't used to contacts yet and I spent the whole day using a computer, and also in the way where one of the door alarms was going off pretty much all day because it was broken.

I was supposed to go to a concert tonight, but I just could not manage it. :( I napped instead. After I write this post, I'm going to go back to bed.

Signs I am tired: I am trying to read my dreamroll using ?ship=300. /o\

Retail Therapy

I ordered some stuff from Fire Mountain Gems over the weekend, and it shipped today. \o/ So that'll be here next Monday, approximately. Unfortunately, I can't bring my travel jewelry kit to Grand Forks. I don't think the TSA would approve of my pliers. :( :( :( Plus I am only bringing a carry-on. DNW to pay stupid fee for checked bag.

sofiaviolet: a painting which reminds me of myself (museum piece)
[ profile] shadesong, as you may know, is Blogathonning for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. She is also running a charity auction, and is writing for each of the pieces from the auction. These were mine:

We Met in February
The Awful Feeling of Knowing You Don't Remember No
Chains and Crippling Shoes

Bid on the auctions or sponsor 'song directly.

Not dead.
