Stupid sodium hypochlorite! [May. 30th, 2007|09:23 pm]
Beemer
I have been cranky off and on for no particular reason the last couple days.

Now I have a reason: I was spraying some household cleaner around and some got on my shirt. The major ingredient in this stuff turns out to be bleach, and now my shirt (which I liked) is kinda ruined.

Suck.

I saw a tiny bunny no bigger than my fist while taking out the recycling, but I am still cranky. Somebody suggest something that will restore my natural good humor and faith in the universe!

Somewhere, in some way-too-upscale-for-the-likes-of-you-and-me clothing store in some neighborhood so swank I don't even know its name, someone is selling a shirt that looks exactly like yours, bleach-stain and all, for $217.89.

That... actually... helped. A lot.
Thanks!

Restorative

Monkeys are cute. Flying monkeys doubly so.

Re: Restorative

kung_fu_monkey refuses to fly for me, but he is still super-cute. Yay!

Whoa, dude. If a tiny bunny won't do it, I'm not sure anything will.

Well, I saw the bunny a couple hours before discovering the bleach on the shirt. If I saw another one, it might help, but it was unable to prevent the crankies.

There are bunnies on the path near my house all the time, you can come over and see them any time you want. There are also geese, a heron, pelicans, lots of songbirds (mostly redwing blackbird & meadowlark), mud swallows, at least one beaver and the occasional fox.

Oh yes, and bald eagles fly over with live fish in their talons.

It's not precisely cute, but it can be refreshing.

And here is a nice link that Rob Brezsny shared today:

http://learn.bowdoin.edu/japanesegardens/gardens/intro/index.html

Share it with assorted and sundry household bears and monkeys.

LJ's phone post auto-transcriber is some amazing stuff.

I don't believe it's transcription by computer. I believe it's transcription by Indian. If you look at the webpage for the company involved, there is very little evidence of actual R+D work, but lots of suits.

I have a shirt. It's a plaid of orange, yellow, green, and white. It has a bleach stain on the left front. I wear it anyway. Peopel think the stain's a feature, which never ceases to amaze me.

I'm going to try bleaching it more. Maybe it will look fashionable. I'll be a trend-setter!

Here's a t-shirt that I thought was funny. It's called "Technology Ruins Everything".

Oh, no! I'm contagious! Quick, cover your... um, eyes? Go wash your net connection?

Thanks, Pete. *counter-hug*

I'm going to try using the same spray to bleach out the lower third or so where the stains are, because it might look interesting, but if it doesn't work out I will for sure take you up on your offer. Thanks!

I think the fact that you got so many replies should restore your faith in the universe just fine.

Well, there is lolcode, if you haven't seen it already.
