The fearsome Goofy Elk

The fearsome Goofy Elk

One of the unintended side-effects of staring too long at a DramaSec op (previously known as Dramz, Flamewars, or Fucking Pointless Internet Drama Put Your Big Girl Panties On And Cut It Out FFS) is the contagion of the Derp Factor.

You have been warned.

I see now where I went wrong

malted milk

oh jeez I should pay more attention when ordering

Ah, THAT’s the problem!

No, really, the problem is I have no budget for anything fun lately. I’d better be paid by next Monday, because that’s Packing Up and Moving Into Storage Day, not yet a national holiday, and I am going to need to pay some bills by then, for srs. There’s no point in having all the funds in the world “in invoices” because as far as I know truck rental companies won’t take invoices in lieu of cash.

Nor will liquor stores, and I am going to CLEAR ONE OUT on the evening of the 25th, believe me.

The Most Astonishingly Accurate Internet Quiz in All of Time and Space

We at the ol’ raincoaster blog have long been known as vigorous advocates of the dispassionate scientific method. So naturally, we cast a deeply skeptical eye over those so-called accurate quizzes that populate the back pages of women’s magazines and the lesser blogosphere. We are not pushovers; we are not fools.

We are, however, apparently Lucy.

You Are Lucy

You are smart as a whip… maybe a little too smart for your own good! Other people tend to annoy you.

You tell it like it is, and you’re not about to spare anyone’s feelings. You’re very blunt.You are assertive to the point of being aggressive. You know what you want, and you’re going to make sure you get it.

Deep down, you’re trying to be helpful. You give good advice, even if people don’t want to hear it. You always shoot from the hip.

It’s quite clear this quiz, unlike most, is scientifically 100% accurate. We feel confident giving this our Scientific Seal of Approval.

I hate when that happens
