    That avatar is me, and I'll have you know they are Grateful Dead bears, and they are proudly on display in my living room.

    That moment when your new phone has a very sensitive autocorrect. Every time I type "love" it changes it to "live"....you have no idea how many times I've said "I live you".....

    When I type "have" it changes it to "gave".... When I typed "chin" it changed it to "CHINESE" WTF!?!?

    I always thought it looked at context before it auto corrected. NOPE!

    I tried only one of his books, a little 80's ditty called Friday with a this is everything wrong with the publishing industry randomly semi-topless Sci-Fi vixen on the cover. My little gay self was immune to the boobiage in the not-even-trying cover art, which should have told me everything I needed to know about the work within, and it was the most smugly self-conscious, laughing at his own jokes "comedy" Sci-Fi I'd ever read. I'm sure there's someone out there ready to appreciate a writer stroking it to his own image, but not moi.

    Might take a while, unless said author is good at multi-tasking. o_O :p

    Chin. I made a buck out of pottery clay and painted it with something like 8-10 layers of liquid latex, with white water based paint in the top layers.

    TMW you have a handful of cereal left after pouring, and have to decide whether to cram it into an already full bowl.

    Can you turn autocorrect off? No point in having it if it makes more errors than you do.

    Only ever got a Facebook cause my brother wanted to show me someplace he was (he travels the world). Shut it all off after that. Pesky. Haven't looked at it in years.
    Care Bears! We used to blast those when we go shooting in the desert! Someone tried to blow one up with tannerite, but the capsule fell out and it went about 50 feet. We finished em off with shotguns.
    What is life-affirmer? I honestly have no idea.

    Your use of Care Bears brings joy to my heart.

    But you need to live, love, and laugh.

    The struggle you're going through today is only developing the strength you need for tomorrow.

    Because the first to apologize is the bravest, and the first to forgive is the strongest, and the first to forget is the happiest.

    The only courage you'll ever need is the courage to fulfill the dreams of your own life.

    I'm depressive, so that's all contrived bullshit to me.
    BTW I look like santa-claus after the third day of rehab!

    Incidentally, ...
    That last one was Oprah Winfrey apparently.

    I want to push her down a dark alley full of meth-heads at 1am in the morning and shout that to her, before running away.

    "All women gain weight as they age and that`s why I`m not married"

    It does shed light but I don`t think it`s a choice buddy.

    That moment when you see it`s time to wake up and you put your head back down on the pillow for a second then look again and twenty minutes have went by.

    TMW you leave Youtube on autoplay having looked up a good song, then it begins going through lots of awesome old songs that you'd forgotten about.

    That's not writer's arm, it's wanker's arm.

    Oh, and you Americans out there. Make sure your safe search is switched on before you go looking for the meaning of that word.
