Pardon Me For Sounding A Bit Like Andy Rooney  
I get so tired of looking over my friends list and seeing people bitch about the fact that others post quiz results, which then shows up on someone else's friends list (this wasn't sparked by anyone specifically or recently).

They whine about how it screws up their friends page, or how it makes it load slower, etc., and how they think you should put them behind an LJ-Cut, so they don't have to see them. Most of these whiners, though, are the same ones who make posts that are 3 screens long, and who start out those very same posts with "I'm not gonna bother putting this behind an LJ-Cut, because this is my journal and I can do what I want".

*shakes head, laughing* Can we say hypocrite? C'mon, at LEAST have the same courtesies you wish extended back to you.

On a completely unrelated note: Having now played with Jasc's Animation Shop, I can honestly say that apart from a few effects that I was already kinda tired of seeing, I'm not overly impressed, and haven't found much that I couldn't already do in ImageReady, but I'll keep it around.

On a note related to that but still unrelated to the original post: I cannot find a copy of MetaCreations Poser 4 on the web to save my life, dammit.

On a note related to the unrelated note, but not related to the related note to the original note which was unrelated to all the other notes... ah damn.. wait a minute.. I'd like te start a new note, unrelated to all the previous notes because I seem to have lost my orriginal notes related to the first noted note.

Related to being related, a recent study shows that everyone in the world is related in some way to Charlemange. Yes, even people in Asia. That was one promiscuous fucker!

I never bother cutting my entries unless they're multiple pages long. A single quiz result every once in a while doesn't deserve to be cut.

Interestingly enough, my grandmother has been doing geneology research all her life, and has traced my family to Charlemagne. I've heard that too...

Yup, my father has traced mine back and it defintiely goes through Charlemange, then to some Roman senators and things. Unfortunately, post Charlemange is a little boring. Only some English dukes and things of that sort.

I'm pretty certain she traced us back to the damn monkeys...*L*. The list gets long and distinguished, but does that get me anywhere? Nope.

Duly noted.

I've become paranoid about not using the LJ-cut and therefore use it often. Possibly too often. lol. But I don't bitch about other people's results either. Cuz if they didn't post them I'd never have any quizzes to take. ^__^
