Suicidal Snowflakes

Just because I have a short attention span doesn\’t mean I…

SIGH.

Time to admit that I’ve been two-timin’ this blog.  Mostly because people on LJ dont care how big of a consummate nerd I am.  So… here’s my new-ish home:

http://spastasmagoria.livejournal.com

and they leave fb and stuff there now and again.  Lots of opinions, but lots of just nerding out and fanfic on my part. And cat macros.  Sigh.  Yes, as if fanfic wasn’t bad enough.

So I can understand if you don’t want to be my friend any more.

Whocon

Sorry for my incommunicado-ness. Was in sunny, gloriously warm LA for the con 🙂 Ok, the wrapup:

1) TORCHWOOD BABIES.   That’s all I haveta say.  I’d call it a spoiler, but it’s more like… an evil plan.  It involves flash animation and chibis.  Everybody likes chibis.   Or muppets.  We haven’t decided.  Who’s the saddest pouty-pants with the drooping diaper?? You are, baby Ianto! You are!  Presented in glorious technicolor by that guy with the TARDIS key who said I’m not allowed to say his name because he wants to continue working in that town.

2) Met the most adorable guy from South Hampton.  Ok, so like 90% of the people from the UK at the con were from South Hampton, or so it seemed to me and said adorable guy.  *waves to Jamie.*  Nice fellow who, like me, needs a couple of drinky-winkies to get over the debilitatin social anxiety disorder.  We spent pretty much the whole weekend together. And his roommate totally hooked up with someone at the con.

3) Similar to the Torchwood babies… it’s the torchwood kids.  OMGEEEZE.  Jack let me touch her gun 😉 Take from that what you will.  Well, angsty dead jack did.  Mostly living and posessing ambiguous levels of angst Jack just had really cute red suspenders.

4) Met all kinds of cool peepilz.  *waves to cool peepilz* who are too many to mention by name… I’ll forget someone then they’ll be sad because they’ll think I don’t think they’re cool peepilz.

5) There was sooooo much glorious booze.  Glorious, glorious non-sobriety.  Oh yeah, and hanging out at the bar with the writers wasn’t bad either.  Though I had to resist the urge to tell the guy who wrote the cyberman two-parter… Tom, honey… I had that hair cut in sixth grade.  My grandmother cut off the tail one night while I was sleeping because she couldn’t stand it any more.  And she was right to do so.  Either commit–mullet or no mullet 😉

6) Eight hours in the con room.  I’ll just kind of leave it at that.  I needed that booze that the nice kind people at TAC squad presented me with.

7) TOTALLY got out of dismantling and moving the TARDIS.  Twice.  First time I was too drunk by the time the second truck showed up, second time I got caught up in something involving tape and four inches of pipe and stuff

8) Spent WAAAY more money than we ought.  Now I have a TARDIS playset and a remote controlled Dalek to chase my cats with.  Now that I think about it, I should have gotten two, this way when the cat thinks its gotten away from one, I can send the other after her.

9) Got some action figures to populate my ginormous playset.  There’s just one problem: too much testosterone in the TARDIS.  Two werewolves, one kriltane, the tenth Doctor and Jack.  It sounds like a bad porno.  My husband’s reasoning is that we don’t need Rose because Rose isn’t there any more, bla bla bla, all kinds of guy reasons that don’t make sense and interfere with my wishful thinking… (yes, I know how incredibly lame I am for shipping 10/Rose and daydreaming about her coming back, especially since I’ve never shipped anything in my life, and due to the intrinsic transitive nature of the show, but dammit–let me have my dreams).

10) Colin Baker’s shoes–OMG.  They were so bizarre that they were awesome.  Red crocks, no socks.  Of course, all the hanging around he did in the lobby and such Sun and Mon, you’d think I’d remember to take a pic of said awesomes shoes.  Hells no. It was awesomes of him to hang around as much as he did with us scary fan types.

11)  The room was smaller than the one at ChicagoTARDIS, but it was nicer.  Never got to use the tub part of the shower/tub thingy.  Just not enough time.  I see no problem with sharing a room with someone or another couple next year–it wasn’t like we did anything in the room besides sleep.  We’d just come back at like 1am every night and pass out.  There was always something going on after the events were done, and if not, there was always the lobby booze festival of love and mingling with the guests every night.

12) Again, somehow I find myself surprised at the lack of haters.  Seriously, some of the people (ok, the vast majority) on the OG boards can put you off fanning and fandom.  You begin to think it’s all about hating te thing you’re supposed to like and if you dont hate it, somehow you’re liking it wrong, or something.  Got into a conversation in the lobby (noticing a lobby theme?) with Steve Moffat (who was just so nice that I couldn’t eat his brains, even though I wanted to) about it–he says the haters tend to be incredibly shy in a face to face situation.

13) Took an awesome tour of the LA area… got some good pics, saw them setting up for the Oscars, got a bit lost in that weird out-door mall thingy near the chinese theater.  Would have loved to have had time to go inside.

14) Don’t you just effing hate numbered lists? Yeah, me too.

15) I’m a ninja.

Can somebody tell me…

Why this doesn’t come in a queen or king size? I mean, is it inconcievable that nerds would mate?

Then again… while I find Tardises (tardi?) and Daleks to be hot in a way I probably ought not… The cabbagepatch kid-esque raxicoricalfalipatorian on my comforter would be just a little weird.

Well, the funny ones at any rate.

I’m coming out of the closet

I just need to admit this and say this in public…

I’m a Guy Gardner/Mary Marvel shipper.

Ok.  I feel better.

Of course it means I’m a sick freak, but I needed to get that out in the open.

Christmassss

First I’d like to start with this bit of amusingness:

It’s like… a Bubble Wrap Dalek or something.  what’s it going to do? pop me to death?

Ok.  Yesterday was like Dr Who overload. Finally watched Sun’s ep of Torchwood and then there was the DW christmas special.  OMG.  Owen and the Doctor are poster boys for not handling loss of loved ones well.  Like… seriously.  The DW episode was funny, just emo enough for a dude that’s lost his best girl.  All the functional character development stuff was just so necessary and spot on.  SO glad they didn’t do that ‘thing’ where the person goes away and is never discussed again.  When the Doctor says Rose’s name at the end, it just breaks your widdle fangirl heart.  To quota a small child I know… Wose and da Doctah forebbah and ebbah. And back to Torchwood–SO sorry but Gwen made me laugh and laugh.  She’s messed up her life so badly, and it’s all her own doing LOL.   I mean, I sympathise and stuff, might have even made some of the bad decisions she has, but basically she’s buttered her bread 🙂

Uh… what else? got fuzzy bunny slippers of rassilon, er I mean Monty Python killer bunny slippers.  And rollerblades. My husband really wants to cash in on my life insurance policy LOL.  Seriously, he’s like ‘you can’t use these till you have knee pads! and Im like.. i concur.  I’m so clumsy. But I’ve always waned ’em and now I have ’em 🙂

Uh… uh… can’t think of anything else.  My stock pot decided to be defective yesterday and start leaking water, which sucked.  Everybody liked the food tho, despite the mashed potato emergency.

*Squee*

Where do I start?

Guess it’s time for the numbered list again.

1)  Got a new kitteny kitten.  Her name is Aggy, she’s a little shit.  She looks like a bobcat and thinks she’s a mountain lion.  She growls and meows for fun and she’s not afraid to take on the big cat, even tho PK is two years older and has like 8 pounds on her.  Aggy’s 8 weeks old and can’t weigh more than a pound or two.  She’ll bite PK and try to nip my fingers and such.  She’s totally addorable.  My brother’s cat sitting right now, because of #2.

2) I’m in Chicago… at Chicago TARDIS, the Doctor Who convention. Yaay, squee.  I don’t even know where to start. We decided to go at 3am Wednesday morning and left after Thanksgiving dinner.  We got in about 2am on Fri morning.  Was a good drive, even tho it was kind of foggy in some parts.  Indianna goes by real fast when you’re doing it at about 80mph.

The hotel is really nice, we got  a good rate, even if the rest of the weekend is being a tad pricy.  Ten dollar hamburgers arn’t helping the budget LOL.  When we checked in,  we got a room with water all over the bathroom floor, so we changed rooms before we even had our shoes off. All was well with the new room (it was even bigger) until yesterday when the safe decided to eat my laptop and not give it back.  Had security come up with a device to open the safe and it wouldn’t work (I knew the combo, it was saying ‘open,’ but still wasnt releasing the lock)…had to get an engineer up.  They got my stuff out but now the thing won’t close… so we’ve been having to carry our laptops around all the time.  Oh well. There’s free coffee.

Friday started off a little weird.  Kinda slow, not many people, then the floor opened for the dealers room, and it was like… woh.  Packed.  Today things were busier in the events, but less so in the dealers room.  I got a sonic screwdriver pen thingy… drove all the way to TARGET for batteries for the little f-cker.  Also had to buy a screwdriver, ironically to get into the sonic screwdriver to put the batteries in.  Got all the novels I was missing, some buttons…

Went to the Time and Chips meetup… Nice to put some faces to some of the userid’s 😉 Heard Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred.  They are so funny and nice.  They’ve both held up remarkably well.  If I can look that good when I’m Sophie’s age, I’ll consider it a win.  Her kids are adorable too.  James got his pic taken with a Dalek 😉 long weird story about that.  I wish I had like $200 spare bucks. I could get the $150  TARDIS play set and spend like $50 or so picking up some of the dolls for it.  Such a nerd.

I had a little too much (a  lot too much) to drink at the Outpost Gallifrey meeting, ended up giving my husband a few too many thumbs ups during The Empty Child and the Doctor Dances, so he didn’t let me stick around for the first three eps of Torchwood, he dragged me off to bed.

We got up later than we intended so we didn’t get photographs and autographs today, maybe tomorrow–of course we wouldnt have slept that much if we didn’t need it.  James got still more buttons, and a little flashlight sonic screwdriver.  His is cuter because it’s littler and lights up brighter but mine makes cool sounds and I can pretend it’s functional because it has a pen on it.  The post-it notes with gallifreyan written on them were just nerd icing on the nerd cake of my nerdy deserts.

Other stuff happened, but I’ll haveta write more later.  Going down to the MST3k-ing of Battlefield.  Should be fun.

Talk about taking the wind out of my pants-crapping sails.

I was busy crapping my pants in my husband’s direction saying he’d never everrrrr guess who’d be joining the cast of Heroes in January (and like, seriously, if you arn’t watching it–you should be. It’s amazingly awesomely awesome)…. and he already knew.

*Huff*

He knew and he didn’t tell me.

Assssss.
