Not Who You Think It Is

It's not Gillian Anderson. Really. It's a Poser figure.

On a totally unrelated note, I'd like to start a movement. Not the musical kind. I hope that I can get Al Sharpton involved, mainly because I wouldn't be bothered if some people got fired over this particular bee in my bonnet. See, I'm a night person. Always have been. Today I was forced to greet the day courtesy of one of the maintenance monkeys here at the apartment complex using a leaf blower. Before 7:30. A.M. Because of this,I learned that Tucson's noise ordinance ends at 7 so I couldn't even throw that at them. But still... a leaf blower at 7:30? I know my family is laughing at me, because they get up at about the time I'm thinking of possibly going to bed. Regardless of the time zone difference. (If I didn't look like them, you wouldn't know we were related based on their diurnal habits.)

So, I'd like to start a national movement. Or even an international one. Why not? The rights of the nocturnals have been trodden for far too long. We may be a minority, but that doesn't give you diurnals the right to just bang pots and pans together when the sun comes up. (You selfish bastards.) I'm quiet when you're asleep, and I should be afforded the same courtesy. Your laws have a decidedly anti-nocturnal bent, so I say that infringes on my rights. Not to mention my lefts. I'd like to call it something like "Everybody Shut the Hell Up" movement. But that's mainly because I'm no good at coming up with slogans. And having a movement called "ESHU" will just make people say "Gesundheit" in confusion, and that doesn't even begin to address the issues.

So? Who's with me? Down with daylight oppressors! We want meridian equality and we want it now! (Or something. I said I was no good with slogans.)

Sorry to hear about your broken "day". Your post did make me laugh though.

This reminds me of a dream I had a couple years ago where someone was mowing the grass in the middle of the night. Luckily it was only a dream. :)

Your image is stunning!

That image you posted is really good. There are better words for that but I can't think of them. When I saw it, the first thing that I thought was, "Wow"...Well, I've been sitting here for an embarrassing amount of time waiting for my brain to kick in and think of a word not quite so lame as, wow. Oh well. "Wow" will have to do.

Thanks, Dzeni. Glad it made you laugh!

Stacey, I think if I had a dream involving a leaf blower, I wouldn't be able to post anything about it due to the physical impossibilities of where the device would end up. (There's a pun there.) Glad you liked the image!

Oliviah, "Wow" is a perfectly acceptable and appreciated comment. I've certainly left them on your images, so I'll gladly take one! Thanks!
