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.

Day of the Ninja

Did you know that yesterday was The Day of the Ninja? yah.  totally.  Next year I will need to participate.  It’s the one day of the year that non-jas get to be ninjas.

Came home from work sick.  I at least waited until I barfed the second time, just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.   Random barfing isn’t fun.

This is awesomes:

A post of many tags

Oh yes.

1) I ate a fruit cup and half a PB&J sammich!! YAAY!! That’s like, an accomplishment for me lately. I think I’m going to have to switch to creamy PB, which takes the fun out of life right there, but I think the nut pieces are irritating my stomach.  You’d think I’d be skinnier.  But I’m not.

2) Started putting up Christmas decorations.  Went OCD on the tree with the ornaments, making sure it was all… balanced.  BTW, Just so the world knows, I totally have dibs on the book title “The Feng Shui of Christmas.”  It’s going to be a womens’ magazine kinda thing  about how balanced energies and decorations will make your house all calm and peaceful for the holidays and therefore you’ll have a perfect holiday and your life will be perfect henceforth. You know, like every stinkin’ magazine article in those things.  Anyways… spent like an hour, maybe two, dinking with the ornaments.  There may not be a spare branch.  Then I get everything all balanced and pretty, my Principles of Design teacher would be proud… and I go to get a box of decorations to put up the wall hangings… and damnit, don’t you know I find another small box of ornaments?? Now I get to go thru this all again.  I’m SO OCD.

3) The 5th is Day of the Ninja.  It’s the day where Non-jas get to be ninjas.  WAY better than Talk Like A Pirate Day.

I think that’s it. The nerdology tag is just because people are using my ‘triple nerd score’ phrase now.  And my XYZ section break system.  It’s good to be on the cutting edge of… well, the cutting edge.  And not that skating movie, either.

Yeah. I’ve had days like this.

Some days, you’re the Dalek and perpetrate the mass-murder.  Some days, you’re the poor hapless human in the path of their plungery raygun of doom.

That was SO Snakes on a Plane.

I swear, I’m going to write my doctoral thesis on Snakes on a Plane.  It was horror, it was action, it was disaster movie.  And the princess and the ninja got together at the end.

James keeps saying “he wasn’t a ninja, he was a kick boxer.” Yeah, ok, whatever.  The princess wasn’t a REAL princess either.  But come on.  The guy was a ninja. Ok, and Samual L. Jackson was in it, which is a reason to see it right there.  He is awesome and has my personal seal of approval.  The superman movie was good, and this movie was good.  The only thing that could have made this summer better was if Samual L. Jackson had actually PLAYED superman.  Then I’d be dead, because I’d explode from the awesomess that my soul couldn’t contain.

Dude, I swear, it was such a good movie.  Just freakin’ go see it.  It was exactly what it said it would be, and so much more.

At least I’m honest about my obsessions.

So, what're you obsessed with?? I just found (yet another) celebrity blog to check like twice a day. I guess my celebrity blog obsession could actually be broken up into two obsessions. There's the Rumor Mill blog which is basically a free/online version of US and People with better/more creative writing. See Perez Hilton. Then there's the celebrity plastic surgery blogs. These have slightly more credentials to them than the Rumor Mill blogs because they're sometimes written by plastic surgeons, but either way, all the Plastic Surgery blogs are basically comparing before and after pictures (some of which are completely grotesque) and conjecture as to whether this person lost weight, had botox, or had their face stretched like Cassandra in Doctor Who (Moisturize me! Moisturize me!). See below:

Look like any celebrities you know?

So anyways, I "discovered" celebritycosmeticsurgery.blogspot.com today so I have (yet another) blog to add to ye olde rolle.

I don't know why I enjoy it. maybe it's nice to see celebrities taken down a peg. They're more beautiful than us, their opinions are worth more than ours, they're more tallented, richer, bla bla bla. Nice to see them wearing rediculous outfits, wetting their pants, or looking weird like the cat lady.

Other obsessions include but are not limited to: My Little Pony, Stargate SG1, Goo-B-Gone, Ninjas, Batman, melon-flavored anything, glow-in-the-dark booze, stuff that smells (incense, candles), Splenda, colored pens, big-headed babies, smelly hand creams in funny little pump bottles from Bath and Body Works, Babble and Bookworm.

So… what makes you totally not rational?

A summation of my feelings on the matter.

Anyways, you should check out this dude's site.  His Law and Order comic book is top notch.

I was listening to the lecture for one of my classes and the teacher mentioned that all religious art from the middle ages looks the same because it's a form of authority control.  All the icons of St. George with the dragon or St. Ann with the child Mary MUST look identical because it's the only way to have a "controlled" (read common) vocabulary in a mostly illiterate world.  Man, people couldn't organize a library to save their lives in the middle ages,  dang, we were still trying to classify and bring order to the world.  

If television is my anti-drug, then I must say,  indexing and abstracting is my crack.  This whole library science thing is breaking my nerd, i'm nerding so hard sometimes.
