Shit people who drink say to people who don't drink

There are some good "shit people say" videos going around, such as "shit white girls say to black girls". So along those lines:

"Do you not drink?" [I'm just enjoying an iced tea, why do you care?]
"Why don't you drink?" [What makes you think that the answer to this question is likely to be a pleasant one?]
"You must think I'm an alcoholic." [...Well, I didn't until you projected your own insecurities onto me just now.]
"Would you like a beer? Oh my God I forgot, I'm so sorry!!!" [You were just being polite and offering me something. Relax.]
"This beer is really good, you should try one!" [ONLY annoying if the person has been hanging out with me for years and still has no idea that I don't drink.]
"You know, there are some health benefits to red wine."
"We're gonna get you wasted! Haha j/k."
"You'd be having a lot more fun if you were drinking!" [This one hasn't happened to me in awhile but I generally consider it as license to flip out and yell at the person. Yes, I can flip out and yell at people.]
"Anyone who doesn't drink for non-religious reasons is LAME. Oh, sorry, forgot you were here."

Luckily in my current social situation I don't have to put up with any of this, but all of these are taken directly from things people have said to me in the past.

I'm just turning on my computer this morning to double-check that I don't need to pack up my car and head for the hills, and then I'll give some money to disaster relief.
O.O
Heard about the earthquake before I went to bed, then Mom called at 7:30AM to make sure I didn't have plans to go to the coast for the day.

11 random people liked my joke on Facebook so it must be funny

Step 1: Get a big cryo box.
Step 2: Put your sis in that box.
Step 3: Make Mal open the box.
And that's the way you do it!
It's a chick in a box!


This "Help Nathan Buy Firefly" thing has been a wild ride. It started with a single comment from a celebrity and it ended with a single comment from another celebrity, both of them somewhat misinterpreted. Oh well, probably better for Joss Whedon himself to organize something like this if it ever were to happen.

Life otherwise is the same right now-- teaching, getting the next paper ready, and looking for jobs. Next week the quarter ends and I'll be able to give a lot more focus to the latter two.

Wow, I'm going through my old stuff so my parents can have a yardsale, and I just found three sheets of lined paper with a Applesoft TI-BASIC program written on them. It appears to be a text-based RPG in which the player battles a goblin, skeleton, ogre, and sax player.
