Glad you liked it, not so glad you hurt yourself laughing.

I wonder what my coworkers (or at least the ones I've friended on Facebook) are gonna think about it.

And stubborn and muleheaded and un-adapting as my family members are, I love them, but at the same time I can't wait until they go home so they'll stop pestering me to wake up early and do stuff. Got pulled out of bed an hour early yesterday for that one meal, I had trouble sleeping last night and had to hit the ground running today in order to get all my errands run in time for dinner, and tomorrow not only do I have to be up at noon-ish for lunch with more family, but afterward my brother insists on trimming the wild ivy and honeysuckle around my apartment when it's fine right where it is. So I won't be able to take a nap. He's already borrowed the weed-eater and everything. This is apparently what he does when he gets bored. >_

Totally understand that one. While in some ways I'm a total homebody, I cannot wait to have my own place and not have to deal with my parents on a regular basis.

And the honeysuckle should be fine, but if you've got English ivy, that bastard will get inside and that's a bad thing. We wage war on the English ivy every year, and we're slowly driving it back. Mostly.

I dunno what it is. It's ivy. Now, if it was kudzu I'd understand. But I don't think it's hurting anything. With the way my next-door neighbors meticulously maintain their lawn and garden, it's kinda refreshing how my landlords believe in letting things grow. I find the ivy pretty, actually. And the honeysuckle smells nice.

Well, if it has little blue/purple flowers on it, you're good. That's vinca, otherwise known as periwinkle(because that's the color of the flowers). If it's trying to climb walls/trees/everything you should keep an eye on it and whack it back if it gets too high. It's like, yeah, it makes a nice ground cover, but the upkeep is a bear for the likes-to-climb-everything variety of vine.

Tree-green, oval-but-kinda-pointed-on-one-end, gently serrated leaves with a rather matte texture on top?

From: [identity profile] whogeek.livejournal.com
Yeah, that's one of the climbing types. Just... hack it back/away from windows and such once or twice a year so it won't get inside. The stuff is amazingly hardy. Hell, we used a bobcat to yank a shit-ton of it back a few years ago and it's already growing back.

Ah. Well, I knew it was climbing because it likes the red brick exterior of my home, but I haven't noticed it weaseling into any cracks or anything. I admit I take a rather lax approach to housekeeping, home repair, car maintenance, and my general health (either it's broken or it's fine), but I'm trying to make myself grow out of that.

And now I feel the urge to watch the Stargate ep "Zero Hour." You know you wanna borrow Siler's flamethrower for that ivy.

Yeah, ivy fighting can be rather cathartic if you go about it right. It's a very good use for anger.

Well, yes and no..... >.> I'd probably be sitting with the botanists and half-pouting about it. Because really, super-ivy? That stuff would be awesome.

Date: May. 27th, 2011 04:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jetpack-angel.livejournal.com
Yeah, that would be awesome. Think of the applications of indestructible plant fiber. As long as you're not allergic to aphids and caterpillars, you'd never have to worry about a hole in your denim ever again!

Lol, yeah. Well, they'd have to figure out some way to processes it into something useable. But the upside would be that it would be incredibly easy to get more. :D

Especially if we bred it with kudzu. Crap, we'd have more of that stuff than we'd know what to do with. It would take over. Gardeners would suddenly become as revered as cops.

Super-Ivy warriors!! :D I'd be part of some elite plant-fighting task force! XD You'd have to have a team of gardeners at every building, working 24/7 to make sure the ivy stayed under control.

damn, now I want to write the super-ivy getting out of the SGC and the government recruiting every gardener and botanist and horticulturalist to fight the threat. And fighting in shifts, because otherwise the tide would turn against us. And there would be sadness for the loss of an amazing plant, but this overwhelming desire to stop an invasive species.

Jack's idea would probably be like "let it get to California and let the wildfires take care of it." Or invent a freeze-ray or something. You'd have to call in some super-serious weed specialist, kinda like the pest control guy from "Over the Hedge." Epic battles would ensue. Until finally it becomes sentient, and Jack tricks it into getting onto a Goa'uld or Ori ship so it can go spread wherever it wants to.

From: [identity profile] whogeek.livejournal.com
Lol. Yes, Jack would be totally flippant about it. It would make a pretty awesome weapon. Fire a specialized canister with a sprout of the stuff into a ship/beam it in/sneak it on board and let it just... grow and take over everything. Most awesome bioweapon ever.

And then we'd get the rabid environmentalists claiming that it was nature's payback for all the crap we've done to the planet. They'd release it deliberately. Imagine what that would look like on C-SPAN.

Haha, reporters having to walk ahead of this ever-growing wall of vines as they work their way across the continent. And no one can really figure out a way to stop it, there's just these videos of teams of people taking shifts to fight it back and contain it. And the rabid environmentalists attacking the teams. >.>

It'd be on mystery shows. The opening scene is this nice young couple camping out in the woods, but they start to get jittery when they hear a rustle in the bushes.

Turns out, it was the bushes. Then they're going to evolve so far that they become the dominant species on the planet, and they have to make their own law enforcement or otherwise they'll deplete all the resources, and when one plant murders another their CSIs examine the plant-corpse for DNA. "This one has traces of redhead, sir, and those are only found in zoos and private collections. There can't be that many people who have that much money and was connected to the victim."


"Sir, do you think...?"

"I do." *puts on sunglasses* "Mr. Peabody back. And he's weeding out the competition."

I have no idea. Whatever it is, we're probably having way too much fun with it.

I think that at least I'm a little too tired/punchy to deal with this. But oh man, is it fun. :D

Same here. I'm running short on sleep and I'll probably be a zombie until I get to sleep in on Monday morning, so right now, this is hilarious.

Oh, speaking of zombies, did you hear that the CDC posted an article about them? Go ahead, look at cdc.gov. I wonder if it's still there.

Yeah, definitely haven't been getting enough sleep. Doesn't help that my parents aren't really letting me sleep in. :(

Also, DUDE!! Totally awesome. My life is complete. Now I fall down go boom.

You have fun with that. G'night.

I scarred enlightened one of my managers with this tonight. He'd never seen it, so on last break I borrowed somebody's phone and showed it to him. He spent most of the song with his eyebrows halfway up his forehead (and he jerked backward more than once), and by the time the song got to the bridge he handed the phone back. The girl said "but there's over two minutes left!" and he said "I've seen enough."
