Shiny new computer!

October 12th, 2006 (11:17 pm)

I'm back online! The total rebuild of my computer took a tad longer to complete than we expected, and in fact isn't quite complete yet. The main trouble now is the graphics card which needs an adapter to fit onto the new motherboard, so in the end we had to resort to locating the remains of my old gutted computer and swiping the card back out of there. Still, I now have a lovely shiny silver and black casing, a dvd writer, two fans (very important given the amount of overheating from the last machine), new motherboard and processers. *squee*

In the meantime,

It's not difficult to make a woman happy. A man only needs to be:
1. a friend
2. a companion
3. a lover
4. a brother
5. a father
6. a master
7. a chef
8. an electrician
9. a carpenter
10. a plumber
11. a mechanic
12. a decorator
13. a stylist
14. a sexologist
15. a gynecologist
16. a psychologist
17. a pest exterminator
18. a psychiatrist
19. a healer
20. a good listener
21. an organizer
22. a good father
23. very clean
24. sympathetic
25. athletic
26. warm
27. attentive
28. gallant
29. intelligent
30. funny
31. creative
32. tender
33. strong
34. understanding
35. tolerant
36. prudent
37. ambitious
38. capable
39. courageous
40. determined
41. true
42. dependable
43. passionate
44. compassionate
45. Cute

WITHOUT FORGETTING TO:

45. give her compliments regularly
46. love shopping
47. be honest
48. be very rich
49. not stress her out
50. not look at other girls

AND AT THE SAME TIME, YOU MUST ALSO:

51. give her lots of attention, but expect little yourself
52. give her lots of time, especially time for herself
53. give her lots of space, never worrying about where she goes

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT:

54. Never to forget:
* birthdays
* anniversaries
* arrangements she makes

HOW TO MAKE A MAN HAPPY

2. Bring food

Faith - Bitch Please

*EYE ROLL* Oh yes...because women never appreciate naked or food.

I only vehemently disagree with...oh, about *check tally* 29 of those. Actually at least 15 I specfically don't want...

A real live man, like that? As annoying as fuck.

*snerk* The only person who could live up to that would be a Stepford Husband.

And personally? Depends on what kind of food. :P

Oookay...I'll give you that. It does matter what kind of food.

Like Chinese? Ew. But maybe a nice calzone - fabulous! Indian - not so much. But maybe some grilled shrimp and pinapple - woohoo!



And speaking of naked - have you been scared away from the tag or what? Three writing tags I have going and not a damn thing on any of them. I've been forced to amuse myself writing more Faith/SGA. Please, won't somebody stop me.

Ha! Halfway through writing the next part right now and trying to work out whether ulundate is a) a word, b) spelt correctly.

Your computer is w/o spell check.

And...dear...it's undulate. Unless you were going somewhere else with that.

Call me Stupid (sg1)

Yeah.... feel free to amend that in the editing. :P

I can't even find it in there...

That's why you need to amend slither. :P

Posted by: Spectacularly Adequate Empress (empressvesica)
Posted at: October 13th, 2006 01:38 am (UTC)

But slither and undulate don't mean the same thing at all...I vote no to the replacement.

Not even if I distract you with this?

Um, I don't know how to break this to you - but even distracted, I still know those two don't mean the same thing. Fix it in the edit if you like. :P

Also - *lick* OH Jack, where have you been?

What's the vote on cooking naked?

(This is to assuage the temptation to take that list and turn it into a "bold the parts you agree with, underline the parts you disagree with" meme.)
