To my Father, who's no longer here. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss you. This one's for you.

Plans, plans, plans.

So, I'm gearing up for my big quarter century birthday extravaganza which means coordinating travel schedules and making budgets and generally fretting about like a chicken with their head cut off. But it's going to be worth it to have my best friend with me on my birthday. I'm probably overthinking it as always. It's times like these I curse my nervous disposition but I just want everything to be perfect.

God, help me.


To My Fellow Kickassian Soldiers...

Thank you. I'll admit, the past week has not been the easiest for me; a lot of heavy real life stuff has gone down for me but looking forward to the videos and participating in all this madness with you guys has kept me going. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for the lulz. Thanks for letting an awkward geek from Chicago feel like she belongs even for just a week. It truly was an honor to serve with you all.

For glory, for awesomeness...
For Kickassia!!!

I brought Icon Meme!

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Well, I'm a Doctor Who fan and yes, I rather fancy Matt Smith. The fact that he's nekkid is a bonus. I like to use this one when I'm feeling cheeky. ;)

From the TGWTG Second Anniversary Trailer. Unless you're familiar with Lee and his show "Still Gaming", you probably won't get the joke. I just love the fact that he looks like the Incredible Hulk here.

Again from the Anniversary Trailer. Because Film Brain has the most epic epic face ever. For serious.

The last of my Kickassia icons. What can I say? It's MarzGurl... dressed in military garb... looking mean. ... I'll be in my bunk.

Aww... poor Linkara. This is the icon that comes out when the nerdrage becomes too much to bear and boy do I get a lot of use out of it. Because anti-life really does justify my hate.

This one's a quote from one of my fave shows, The Mighty Boosh. Really, I'm rather saddened I don't get an occasion to use this one more often. It certainly would come in handy in case of internet drama. I mean who wouldn't want to rewind their foes like an angry Betamax tape? ;)

Writer's Block: Sheldon and Penny 4ever!

Fanfiction: Do you love it or hate it, or are you totally indifferent? Why?

Well I write fanfiction so I can't say I'm totally opposed to the idea. When it's done right, it can add a new dimension to the source material or explore unplumbed depths and ideas the original creators may not have thought of. And when it's done wrong... well, it can be a source of unintended hilarity: case in point, Half life: Full Life Consequences.

Writer's Block: Are you incentivized?

Are there any buzz words or catch-phrases--such as incentivize or at the end of the day--that make you cringe? What are they, and why do you hate them?

People who misuse the term "literally". It's NOT that difficult a word to use people. Seriously.
OMG... I've never been so happy for someone to go behind my back. All right, first and foremost, a little background information is in order. I am a huge fan of a web-series called Atop the Fourth Wall, hosted by one Lewis Lovhaug (aka Linkara) who does reviews of bad comic books. One day, being temporarily locked out of my apartment (don't ask), I started doodling and one of those doodles was of Mr. Lovhaug. I took a crappy webcam pic of it, intending only to show it to her and no one else.

Da pic in questionCollapse )

What did my friend do with it, you ask? Why she sent it to him in an email. Reader, I was simultaneously elated and on the verge of a massive panic attack. You want to know what is REALLY awesome; I got a reply from the man himself. I am still freaking out.

Becks, you glorious ninja of love; THANK YOU. I am in fangirl heaven.


Writer's Block: But enough about you

If it were possible to clone a same-age version of yourself, do you think the two of you would be friends? Do you think you'd enjoy each other's company or find the similar point of view boring?

I don't NEED to clone myself. My best friend is almost exactly like me. We like the same things, we laugh at the same jokes and we even kind of look alike. Frankly, it's nice to have someone who you can make obscure pop culture references and who knows where you're coming from.

Writer's Block: Secret song

What's the most embarrassing CD or track in your music library? How often do you listen to it? Do you share it with your friends or keep it to yourself?

Without a doubt, It's The Wrestling Album, released back in 1985 (coincidentally the very year I was born). Everyone who knows me knows that I have it; my brother ridicules me for it yet I am unashamed. Granted, it's cheesy and smacks of crass commercial exploitation but there's something to be said for its kitschy charm and any album that lets Lou Albano loose on his own track deserves some amount of love. :)
