Hi, I'm Jackie.

 

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

I obviously have been going through a frenzy about How I Met Your Mother. I realized that the more I watch it, I see myself in the character, Ted Mosby

Always trying to find the one. Always thinking “this person could be the one” or “I could marry this guy one day” or just the general “what if…”.

I’m sure after dating a certain number of guys, my friends and even people I work with, are thinking what the fuck is wrong with me.

Just like the character has been through, there are so many obstacles and complications along the way. Heartbreaks, winnings, losings… long distance. Personally, long distance does not work. I’m done with that, fuck it. 

I think the experience brings me more into realizing what kind of guy is “right” for me. What works, what doesn’t, what’s irritable, what’s tolerable, etc. 

I’m just trying to bring myself to that destination. And it’s the journey that will bring me there. It’s the journey, no matter how long it takes, that will help me find myself.

I do not put myself out there as the “cheesiest” person ever. I do not even act “cheesy”. But on the inside I think I am. 

I don’t know what I’m saying. This sucks. 

January

Feels like spring already. I love it!

But at the same time it’s kind of scary.

Pro: Warm weather. Hardly any snow. No -50 degrees Celsius with windchill (so far).

Con: Global warming. Summer will be burning!

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

Marathon. Now. No commercials. 

"It’s going to be, LEGEN-

Boxing Day

I’m actually excited for Boxing Day. I originally wasn’t planning on going but after looking at flyers, there’s a whole lot on sale I want to get. I’ll be getting ready for the pushing and shoving. I’m not excited for the traffic, however. Oh well… Hopefully it’ll all be worth it :) I just have to TRY and stick to my budget. We’ll see how long that lasts for.

K, later.

Make The Flying Shit

streeter:

Dear Scientists, 

Make the flying shit. It’s time. 

You’ve done a wonderful job making the future as envisioned by so many writers of the past come true. We have phones that talk back to us now and cars that tell us where to go. We have robots that clean our houses and televisions that have a third dimension. We can speak to someone face to face even though they’re on the other side of the world and we can even go to space on a whim. A good many of us walk around with a device in our pocket that contains the accumulated knowledge of five thousand years of civilization. You’ve done an incredible job with all of this. So I think it’s time we make the flying shit. 

I know what you’re thinking, “but what about whole meals that come in pill form?” I’m sure if you put your minds to it, you could invent those, too. But nobody really wants that. We like eating meals. You know what we don’t like doing? Not flying. So let’s make the flying shit. 

And you know what shit I’m talking about. I’m talking about anything with “hover” in it’s name. I know you can make it if you get to work. So go for it. Let’s make the flying shit. 

And, No, planes and helicopters are not the flying shit, so stop pretending like you already invented it. Too complicated. I’m talking about the flying shit any idiot can use. 

Medicine is great. So are computers. But surely we can spare a few scientists to work on the flying shit? Whoever was going to work on making radio better, let’s put them on the flying shit. Or the people working on making robots that look like people. We don’t need that, those only lead to trouble. Flying shit is a much better investment, long term.
