This explains everything!

Wherein the intrepid thefourthvine explains life, the universe, the Dharma Initiative and Messrs Candle, Wickmund, and Halliwax, and, last but not least, Why People Aren't Commenting on Your Post/Story/Whatever.

Thanks to crazybutsound for finding it first and linking to it. :-D

Go. Read. Laugh.

Do I even want to know why you're commenting on LJ posts at 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning instead of being tucked up in your bed sound asleep?

In the event that you do, I was working on my 15-20-page paper for my Chinese foreign policy seminar before switching over to a fic already over two weeks overdue for an exchange. (But I'll be going to sleep soon, not the least because it has been nine hours since I ate dinner and cannot stay awake while feeling this awake and devoid of snack foods!)

I live a terribly exciting existence, don't I? x)

Too bad you can't be like Captain Picard and just walk over to the replicator in your room and order "Earl Grey tea, hot, and [insert name of snack food of choice here]".

I actually have a large stock of Earl Grey tea in my room at this very moment, but I fear that boiling water for it would wake my roommate up!

Hehehehe, I felt it was my duty to forward that link to those who hadn't yet seen it. Because seriously, we all need a good laugh (and one that stems from a big truth, too, even if it's exaggerated). Glad it served its purpose. :-)

I saw your post about receiving some of E's things from her mother; didn't comment because I didn't know what to say. *hugs*

That's all right :) *hugs*

I just wish there was something I could do to help E's mother (I knit a shawl for her, made of yarn that Eva had picked back when we were living in Montpellier). I call her regularly, she likes to talk about Eva, and I think it helps her. Oh well...

Of course talking helps, and it's just like you to do something so simple but so kind. <3

It was a post in book_icons. I only took four of them, but you can find more here: http://community.livejournal.com/roxicons/22971.html

Hello, stranger! Long time no see! *wonders if you can be guilted into explaining your long silence on LJ so I don't have to explain why I haven't managed to find time to come track you down on IJ*

Also, please don't tell me you're one of the people getting all excited about Dreamwidth, because if I can't keep up with your doings on IJ, I'll never manage to find you in two places.

I see I can ask you the same thing I asked virginia_bell about this time yesterday: Why are you commenting on posts at 3:30 in the morning? It's bad enough that I'm doing it at almost 2:00 a.m.

We had our all store inventory the night I commented. I had recently arrived home from work.
