Tipping Chad Michaels + How I Feel About Certain Electronical Shit

I haven't gotten around to collecting all our drag pictures yet, but Kris and I have gone to a ton of drag shows together. When we go out, it's either to the movies or a drag show. Here's a video of us in the front row tipping ♥Chad Michaels♥ that I'll put here so the next post can be 56k-friendly (as all LJs once were) and because there may be people on here I haven't bragged about it to yet! Behold:

Anyway, there are two consumer electronic devices that I l♥ve and use all the time and want everybody that could be using them, to use them: e-readers and e-cigarettes. These are two things that are seriously way better than their analog counterparts, and since I've been incessantly obsessing over both of them to my boyfriend, I figure I might give him a break for a while and share my undying praise for these goods with you all tonight.

1) e-readers I find it really difficult to get into a novel, and I'm so used to reading off of screens that reading actual physical books takes a lot more effort than it used to. But pretty much every problem that I've used as an excuse to not read is solved with the Kindle Paperwhite Kris got for me. The built-in touchscreen dictionary is already indispensable in my reading habits, and the time estimates for finishing chapters is not only convenient, but motivational in way. On the home screen, there are progress dots underneath each book and I think of each dot as, like, an XBOX achievement trophy... I don't want to go into more detail because it makes me sound like such an idiot. The real kicker to the Paperwhite, though, is that it has a front-lit screen. What really had been holding me back from getting an e-reader much earlier was the lack of lighting, front or back. I just thought it was ludicrous that you needed a clip-on light like it's the friggin' 90's. Well, the Paperwhite solved that super obvious problem and now reading in the dark is easier than it's ever been. I was talking to my mom the other day, and I mentioned to her how much the quality of both our lives would have improved had I had one when I was a kid, especially since the battery lasts for months between charges (we used to go on very long road trips up and down the east coast all the time back then, and the nights became tortuous as soon as my Game Gear battery pack ran out of juice). I'm in the middle of reading The Hunger Games trilogy :B

2) e-cigarettes I'm not talking about the"green Nicotine" or "blu" or any of the ones with cartridges because those are garbage. I'm talking about rigs with a battery, an atomizer/clearomizer/whatever and a drip tip, where you press a button an sweet sugar vapors fill your lungs with smoke- and tar- free nicotine. The only time I've smoked since I started using them was when they broke and I didn't have enough money to get a replacement battery or atomizer, or don't want to take the bus (ugh). On top of my nicotine now tasting like banana Laffy Taffy, it's so much cheaper overall than smoking. The initial rig usually costs around $40, but the """e-juice""" is cheap as hell and lasts forever. Even if you paid $55 a month for everything all over again with nearly a month's supply of juice, it's still cheaper than cigarettes. It has all the positive benefits of quitting smoking, like less stinky clothes and hair, and cleaner hands, and lungs, and all that shit, but you still get to puff on thick vapor that mimics smoke almost completely, and dissipates quickly, before someone who wants to be bothered by it even gets the chance.

I can't believe I wrote all that.
