(This is one of those things you see that people share a lot on their computers. I felt like I needed to do it as well.)

I work for a place that helps you pay less to go to different places for fun. We help you find ways to fly and drive as well as look for places to stay. You can use your computer to ask our computers for ways to go somewhere, and ours will go out and search a lot of other computers for the best. Now you can also use our computers to talk to the people who own the fun spots to make sure you have a place to stay while you are having fun!

There are many computers that work with each other to do this job right, and it is my job in turn to make them work well. I am always looking for new ways to make the computers talk to each other so that they are faster and do not do bad things as much. I also make it easier for other people at my job to change the way you use our computers for the better.

What this means is I often tell my friends at work how to better write stuff to tell a computer how to do its job. This helps make it easier for other people to make the computer better, even if they don't know how the computer already works. I also help figure out ways for our computers to tell if my friends at work write stuff that doesn't work, and warn them if this happens.

(I forgot to share the way you can get to the computer that checks the words you use: http://splasho.com/upgoer5/)

Here's a cute userpic meme, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] laura47:

Comment on this post. I'll choose six userpics from your profile and you'll reply here (or you know, your own journal, whichever), explaining what they mean and why you're using them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along. Also, feel free to please ask me about my icons here, as well.

Since I have exactly 6 userpics right now, I get to describe them all. )

So really I only use my default userpic with any regularity. What should I use the other ones for? Hmm.

Stolen from my LJ friendslist :) I have a LibraryThing account, but I haven't put anything into it really.

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users. Meme directions: bold what you have read, italicize what you started but couldn't/didn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. The numbers after each one are the number of LT users who used the tag of that book.

The list proper: Ian is not very well read, and might just use it as a future reading list )

Synthesized from [livejournal.com profile] puffy_wuffy and [livejournal.com profile] remcat:

Instructions:
1. Go to Career Cruising, www.careercruising.com
2. Put in Username: nycareers and Password: landmark
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions at the upper left corner
4. Post the top ten to twenty results
5. If you'd like, put the careers you have seriously considered in bold

My results, which are perhaps not surprising:
1. Computer Support Person
2. Industrial Designer
3. Computer Network Specialist
4. Animator
5. Fashion Designer
6. Video Game Developer
7. Computer Animator
8. Artist
9. Graphic Designer
10. Telephone Operator
and the next ten )

Standard meme of posting the first sentence from each month:

January: Many people made [New Year's Resolutions, but / I was too lazy].
February: Revelations from this weekend: [Asparagus is tasty even without salt]
March: Ian finally breaks the silence (lameness, laziness, torpor, whatever you call it) to highlight a couple of glaring errors in the Metro today.
The list goes on, with an alternate ending for December! )

I don't believe I've been that nice this year, but apparently this meme believes I've done good deeds for [livejournal.com profile] bluesnapdragon, [livejournal.com profile] desireearmfeldt, and [livejournal.com profile] starheptagon.

Meme hidden behind cut for your protection )

I am conflating two variants of a meme going around:
Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2005. Post the first sentence of it in your journal, and that's your 'Year In Review'.
Mine's kind of boring. Here goes (edited to add links): )

It's kind of an impressively short quiz... but I got Lemon Meringue Pie. )

I tried putting my name into the LJ interest-matching meme site, but I got back a bunch of junk... until I told my browser to display UTF-8. Then it revealed itself to be an inane list of interests that was mostly in Japanese, like "love", "Internet", and "Tokyo", with some anime and J-pop.

Inane list, translations mine )

I am so irritated! dad was totally unfair to me yesterday and now now I can't go to the mall with [livejournal.com profile] bluelarker :-(.

Oh and [livejournal.com profile] j_a_lord told me that [livejournal.com profile] mjw told people that they saw me talking crap about [livejournal.com profile] 76trombones. Whatever!

What sucks is that I don't know why [livejournal.com profile] lokiect went all psycho over me and [livejournal.com profile] iabervon having a little fun.
