I will cover my ass with this attractive blanket apology.  
I've been getting that hincky feeling lately--the one where I go about my daily LJ yawping in a perfectly normal way and then, later on, second-guess everything I said and wonder if I should be apologizing for things I never actually intended.

"I'm very sorry that I mistook you for a man."
"Please know that if I destroyed your love of fandom, it was not purposeful."
"Just to be clear, I wasn't calling *you* retarded."
"No, honestly, I didn't mean *your* stories. Also: joking here."

Then I remembered that Mercury is in retrograde, and communications everywhere are snafu, and felt much better.

So if I say anything suspiciously stupid between now and December 3, just remember the ancient Babylonian principle of correspondences and be aware that influential planetary vibrations are responsible for my words and actions.*

*Especially those of you who believe strongly in astrology and want to smack me right now.

I can't decide if it's the blanket that's attractive or the ass it's covering. I find the apology amusing.

I am also high on antibiotics.

My, that's an attractive blanket apology. Does it come in plaid?

It was years before I recognized the connection between Mercury and the term "mercurial." And I have a degree in English. How sad is that?

Re: I know you meant me!
I'm so totally taking this personal slight to my grave, man.

Which of my four faux pas was aimed at you, though? *makes you paranoid...er*

There's this Roz Chast cartoon in a book I just dug out of my shelves that goes (I paraphrase(: "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will stay with me forever, festering into deep resentment." heee.

That is such a perfect excuse, and I'm SO stealing it. Hugs, and I hope things get better. If they don't, just throw tomatoes at people until they go away. It probably won't help with the people who are already annoyed with you, but throwing stuff is very therapeutic.

Plus, did I mention that Mercury is in retrograde until 2057?

My husband and I are keeping all communication to a minimum, not making any major decisions, and being very nice to each other. We tend to have really rough times when Mercury is in retrograde. Maybe it is just psychological since we know about Mercury, maybe we are just nuts, or maybe there is something to it, but we act accordingly.

But even if planets aren't working their will on us, the feelings are real, so...*hugs*.

Relax, Sugar. It all be cool like Three Fonzies.
Anna S.: jack oneilleliade on November 20th, 2005 10:55 am (UTC)
Three Fonzies makes me want to write poems.

Three Fonzies would give you a milkshake headache.
Three Fonzies zoom down the road, frosting the air.
Three Fonzies play a game of pool: who wins?
Three Fonzies snap, three girls rise and twirl.

It's 2:55 a.m., though, so maybe I can be excused....

I hate you!!!! OMG!!!! I can't believe you said such vile things!!111 eleven!!11 Not really. You seem to be pretty reasonable from my point of view.
Anna S.: rodney-happy-smileeliade on November 20th, 2005 11:56 pm (UTC)
I'm always reasonable! And, strangely, I've noticed, always right too. I'm the Rodney McKay of fandom! ...the other Rodney McKay, I mean.
