My dreams were interesting again last night. I was part of some sort of women's sports team. We were part of some sort of competition, where your team had to compete in multiple sports. I think the members of the team were largely from my high school soccer team, because I remember being glad that I wasn't completely socially ostracized this time around. (My soccer team mostly hated me, I think.) We played soccer, and football, and took turns boxing against members of another team. The boxing was interesting since I knew nothing at all about the sport. Also, at some point it turned into aquatic boxing, and I gave myself blisters and/or frostbite on my toes. It was horrible.

Then I dreamed that Robin (my Robin/Teen Titans Robin, although occasionally it was me in a Robin suit lol) was participating in some sort of charity fundraiser, in cooperation with some education superintendent or other, to improve public schools. It was called "Hugs for Kids" or something silly like that, and was pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Robin would go around to different public schools, and kids would pay two or three dollars (or beg the money off their parents) to get a hug from Robin, or a high-five, or a handshake, or an autograph, or take a picture with him, whatever they want. And the money would go to improving their school: construction of a new building, or new science equipment/sports equipment/books for the library, or a training seminar for the teachers, stuff like that. ...It was REALLY CUTE, and kind of a nice idea, actually. When I'm famous and/or a superhero, I might have to do something like this. So yeah, much of my dream was Robin standing outside a building on some middle school campus with a whole line of kids waiting their turn, and asking each one, "What do you want?" and then giving them a hug or a high-five or whatever they asked for. One odd kid wanted to be bitten, which Robin thought was REALLY WEIRD, but he sort of shrugged it off, bit the kid on the shoulder, and sent them on their way. Then there was the kid who, when asked what he wanted, dragged Robin a short distance away from the other kids and told the Boy Wonder he wanted to come out to him. Robin was like, "...What?! o_O" The kid explained that he was gay, but he was afraid to tell his parents or his friends or anyone. But he wanted to tell someone. He wanted to tell Robin. So poor Robin was all awkward and terrified to be having this conversation, but he also felt kind of honored, and he managed not to make a complete ass of himself. And then the kid was like, "I also want to give you something," and Robin's like, "Okay, what?" and the kid quickly kissed him on the lips and then ran away. And poor Robin was like, "O.O OMG WTF JUST HAPPENED?!" XDDDD I liked cute gay kid. ^_^ ...And then there was the sketchy 21-year-old who somehow managed to get in the line, and they tried to proposition Robin for sex, and Robin's like, "UM. HOW ABOUT NO." And they're like, "We could go inside the building, the kids don't have to see," and Robin's like, "SRSLY NO, HOW ABOUT YOU GO AWAY BEFORE I HAVE TO HURT YOU, YOU SICKO. D:<" And then they tried to offer him $1000 to do it and he was like, "OHMIGOD WHO DO YOU THINK I AM?!?! DDD:<" ...So that was weird, and Robin was not pleased.

...Anyway, old thread is old, but for my own reference Robin did talk to Lackadaisy's Mitzi May on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun.

And now, a meme!

I had to do it. Is anyone surprised? It's FOOD. )
zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
So. Stuff that's gone on since my last post.

The weekend before last, Dar, James, and I went to CC Slaughters, a nightclub in downtown Portland. A gay nightclub. So I can cross that off of my Lifetime To-Do list.

...It was a very gay nightclub. And it was AMAZING. This is my new favorite place in Portland. We got there at 10 to discover that they had $1 drink specials from 10-11, so we ordered as many as we could. Even better, there were free lollipops. It didn't take us long to befriend some gay boys... first an awkward but cute guy named Andrew, then the more flamboyant and outgoing guy who was flirting with him. I was amused to see that the dance floor was empty for the longest time, but as soon as they put Lady Gaga on it was packed. We danced with some guys, we danced with some girls, we met a lot of people but by now I've forgotten their names. I got a lot of compliments on my hair, my outfit, and my dancing, so that felt good. The group we ended up hanging with (a couple of the guys were kind enough to watch our stuff) seemed to be of the general opinion that I was adorable. ^_^ One of the two girls we were dancing with initially that adopted us into the group had the hots for me, and was very disappointed when she discovered in a whispered conference with James that I was, in fact, straight. But just to be sure she double-checked with me. XD; ...I felt kind of bad, actually. The story of my life: Angela, Breaker of Hearts.

I dirty-danced with Dar, and James, and handful of strangers of both genders. ...And then there was that one guy, The Slut. We spent the whole night watching him have sex-with-clothes-on with half the people on the dance floor, both genders. Then he got his hands on Dar. Then he got his hands on ME. I... I'm not sure I can articulate what that was like. That was definitely the dirtiest I've gotten with anyone, ever. I was completely dominated. ...I-I don't think I'm technically a virgin anymore. @_@

So anyway, that was a lot of fun. This past weekend involved a tsunami scare in Hawaii (nothing happened, the waves were tiny) and a trip to the Japanese Garden on Free-Admissions Day. We thought this was a fabulous idea since it had been such a mild winter, and all the flowers were blooming, and it was such a gorgeous day. ...Unfortunately, half of Portland had the same idea. The calming, peaceful affect of the garden was somewhat ruined by the noise and mobs of people EVERYWHERE. ...Oh well. And then Lauren and I went to the Jonathan Coulton concert, which was freaking EXCELLENT. Paul and Storm were the best opening act I've ever had the pleasure of seeing, and were worth half the ticket price by themselves. Seriously, I busted a gut laughing. And JoCo was, of course, amazing. And the lady who was doing the lights wins my eternal affection, because she was a snarky little firecracker. She'd do all these clever little visual puns with the lights, and when JoCo and Paul and Storm started joshing with her, she showed them who was boss by turning the lights out on them and threatening to crush them with the projection screen. Also the audience was amazing and outgoing and witty and fun.

...Also how did I not know that "I'm Your Moon" was about Charon and Pluto? IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW!! I loved the song before and now it's even better. And Lauren still wins for independently making the astronomy connection a few hours earlier when she suggested it was a good Aphelion theme song.

Speaking of Aphelion, if the addition of Carrie's Master didn't make me happy enough (you and he are brilliant, btw! <3 <3), my exploits on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun have finally paid off, because I-pin's mun succumbed to temptation and joined the game! (Unfortunately, I immediately lost the game right after.) This is brilliant because I-pin is adorable, and with both her and the Master there will be lots of fun time-travel shenanigans. And I'm pleased for Robin, because now he has someone his own age to talk to, and we already know the two of them make good friends, and he has someone to spar with, and he has someone to be all impressed by his egotistical awesome self, and she's a girl, and she's cute, and once he's gotten over Starfire things are going to be HILARIOUS. ...Seriously, it's hard enough already to keep him from unintentionally flirting. ...NAUGHTY DICK GRAYSON. *swats him with a rolled-up newspaper* DOWN BOY.

...Speaking of segues [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun, Robin's been talking to a Sophie Hatter, an Aziraphale, and an AMAZING Marvin. Robin also felt the need to complain about his weird-ass mun. ...What? Is planning out the progression of my character's puberty really that strange? ...Okay, yeah, it kind of is. ^_^;; But he finally got to talk to a Tim (animated! :DD) and a truly excellent Joker, and there was a little Aphelion get-together with Richard and the Master as well.

......I have an interview at Parry Center on Wednesday. OH MY GOD WISH ME LUCK. I want/need this job like burning. T_T
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
Last night I dreamed the world ended. My dad became a tobacco farmer and there were monkeys everywhere. )

...Then my alarm went off, so that was the end of that nonsense.

Old news on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun... THIS was the most amazing freaking crack, ohmigod. Um, spoilers for FMA manga? Maybe? I dunno that it spoils anything, so much as makes everything better. I dunno, I'm not caught up, and I just barely know enough to understand what's going on. BUT IT'S AMAZING. Also, for my own reference, Robin spoke with Kim from Deathproof, ahahaha amazing!! The conversation turned out to be much more entertaining than I thought it would be when Kim told Robin he could probably get stunt work. And then Robin spoke to Jason Todd (Miller!verse), which, yeah, is just about as awkward as you'd expect it to be.

I'm deeply obsessed with Top Gear (BEST. SHOW. EVER.), I'm madly in love with Richard Hammond, and guys, I want to share this with you, because it may be the best thing that's ever happened to me: html Comics, a free online library of over three hundred thousand comic books that at least claims, fairly convincingly I think, to be legal. TT_TT Oh my god you guys, this is seriously every comic ever. Although, they lag behind a bit on current publications, but who cares?! No more camping in Powell's for me! I'm reading my way through Teen Titans Go! right now, finally. Next on the agenda is finishing Fables, then... oh god, everything I can find with Deadpool in it I think, then every Batman comic ever, then... idefk, The Spirit?! Then EVERY COMIC EVER. ALL OF THEM. ALPHABETICALLY. ...James, bb, I love u. TTT_TTT

...Also, I really need a job. Like, I really do. ...But I don't waaaaaaaant one! T_T
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)

Man, that was an epic game! It was really close with lots of drama... the Colts had a ten-point lead in the first quarter, largely due to their quarterback's surgical precision with a football. The Saints got it back by pulling some ridiculously ballsy moves (short kickoff in a Super Bowl game, who does that?! :DD), and then there was that amazing interception and touchdown! When they scored a touchdown with three minutes on the clock, it was over. Final score 31-17, and the Saints win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history!! Man, can I pick a winner! The one team in all of pro football I decided to care about, and look at them now! :DDDDDD ...I bet half of New Orleans died of alcohol poisoning last night. XDD; Uncle Ivan said most schools were closed today, too.

Fun fact: last night's game was the most-watched program in television history. Wow.

So anyway, after a minor cold last week, I had a fairly fun weekend. Dar and I got caught up in Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. I did a fun log on Saturday, in which I got Robin horribly injured. Whoops~! :DD (Watch him complain about it on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. He is reeeeaaallly pissed at me. XDD;) And then a bunch of us went to see Demons at Cinema 21. That movie was ridiculous. 80's slasher flick involving an evil movie theater full of demon zombies with amazingly bad lines and incredible scenes such as the hero and his new girlfriend riding over the theater seats on a motocross bike while stabbing demon zombies with a katana. And then there was the part of the movie where the ceiling started groaning, and Dar and I thought the theater was going to get all House of Leaves on them, but no, it was just a RANDOM HELICOPTER FALLING THROUGH THE CEILING, wtf. ...And then there was, you know, the Super Bowl.

I had the scariest dream last night. DD: )

Will and I have plans to go swing dancing tomorrow, FINALLY. So that should be fun.

Also, Lauren and James, this is for you. I apologize for inflicting Lady Gaga on you, but listen to this. ...And then think of Old Gregg.
zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
Robin's talking to Edward Elric, Heather Morris of Silent Hill, and Wendla Bergmann from Spring Awakening. ...OMG. Anyone remember when I was in that play? So much love for this person.

Faye's talking to a really excellent Crowley.

That is all.
zolac_no_miko: (PTERODACTYL!)
OKAY. GUYS. This on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. XDDD I have no idea what's going on here, but I love it. ...So much so that I jumped on the bandwagon and spammed it with every single one of my characters. ...Even Isis. XD;
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
So the A.F.I. concert was great. The opening band, Ceremony, had kinda boring music, but I found their personalities enjoyable, and I had a front-row seat for the ridiculousness that was the mosh pit. Dar and I had fun hanging out with Grant, and chatting with the awesome people around us about Portland and A.F.I. and how sweet it is to have a Hellboy tattoo. Like, seriously, pretty much the whole crowd was great.

Then A.F.I. came on the stage, and a bunch of douchebags mowed me and Grant over on the way to the stage. Like, seriously, I thought I was going to be trampled to death. I have a bruise on one knee, and a big strawberry on the other.

A.F.I. was AWESOME. They played a really excellent set with most of our favorite songs, and they were lots of fun to watch. Especially Davey. Omg Davey, ilu. I had tons of fun jumping up and down and beating my fists in the air and screaming along to the songs with the rest of the crowd. Towards the end of the set the crowd shuffled this guy next to me, and he was loud and exuberant and happy, and he apparently thought I was hot shit because he started putting his arm around my shoulders. In a happy, companionable way. But totally also in a "hitting on hot rocker chick" way. I didn't mind... he was so happy! So I put my arm around his shoulders, and we jumped up and down like lunatics and danced and were happy. Dar kept being all, *elbowelbow* "HE'S CUTE!" *elbowelbow*

The very last song they played, at the end of the encore, was Silver and Cold. OHMIGOD YAY. I had been waiting and hoping all night, so when I heard the opening chords I screamed like a maniac. Happy Dude turns to me and is like, "THIS IS THE SONG THAT GOT ME INTO THIS BAND! :D" and I'm like, "OHMIGOD ME TOO! :D" ...So I rocked the hell out and screamed every line of that song with great enjoyment.

The music stopped and the lights came on, and Dar's like, "Get his number OR ELSE." So I hung about awkwardly for a few seconds, and sure enough he asks my name, and gives me his (Dan), and asks if I'd like his number, since we have the same taste in music and all. ...Which was classy of him, we thought. So I said sure, and now I have his number. ...And now I'm going to have to call him. OR ELSE. And I think I totally will. Like, I dunno, why not? How else am I going to meet guys in Portland?

Dar and Grant and I dropped by Dante's to grab some pizza and sodas. We sat outside and listened to the Karaoke From Hell inside... karaoke with a live band, which sounds pretty sweet, actually. ...Some of it was pretty atrocious, but this one chick did a good cover of Come Together, by The Beatles. We watched as some bums across the street had a fight, and a whole pile of cop cars showed up. But then we were done with our pizza and getting cold, so we left. And that is all.

Robin is talking to Rose Wilson. This should be interesting. Also, I posted with him at [livejournal.com profile] sixwordstories, for a change of scene and more [livejournal.com profile] aphelion_rpg advertising.

zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
So, this weekend was pretty sweet. Friday night kicked off with a party at James'. Originally it was supposed to be a redneck-themed grill and barbecue on the roof, but then half the people ditched. So it was just James and Angel and Will and me. But I wore my redneck-chic outfit (though I left my cowboy hat at home), and I brought my Jello Jigglers on a paper plate, and Will brought a bottle of wine, and we picked up a pizza. So we had pizza and Jello and wine, which is still pretty damn redneck, and we watched Zombieland and played Zombies!!!. So it turned into a redneck-zombie party, or as I like to call it, the Tallahassee Party a.k.a. Thank God for Rednecks! ...It was fun.

The rest of the weekend was getting drunk and watching slasher flicks, here in the apartment and over at Cinema 21 downtown. Which is more fun than I would've given it credit for, several years ago. And, educational. Know this, Otto: you have to fuck the life into the gallbladder.

For my continued reference: Robin spoke to Chizu from Usagi Yojimbo, another Deadpool, and Sherlock Holmes. Which was hilarious, btw. Robin is such a fanboy. ...Also, Faye briefly spoke with a Time Lord Sean Connery!James Bond. It was necessary.

Robin is currently sparring I-pin (AWESOME~!) and being an unreasonable teenager with his double.

zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
So I can find the threads later, if I want...

Robin spoke with Wooster, the Fifth Doctor, Uhura, and Laurence Dominic.
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
It's official, [livejournal.com profile] aphelion_rpg is open for reserves and applications. ...I AM SO AGITATED ABOUT THIS. Seriously guys, this project has been literally a year in the making. I just went back and looked in my inbox, and Lauren brainstormed the idea and recruited me on Jan 12, 2009. This is a big fat baby and I'm so happy she's finally gonna be born, but after all the hard work we've invested in her YE GODS I AM SO NERVOUS.

Lauren, bb, ilu. Thanks for being my co-parent and partner in crime. <3 <3 <3

Also, thanks to all of our friends who've been so supportive, lending us your excitement or even your brains. You know who you are. YOU GUYS ROCK.

asdhjfkslmnfabguhrrgk I need to be doing something else now.

zolac_no_miko: (PTERODACTYL!)
Okay, so Aphelion's not going to be a January baby. She's going to be a February baby. Actually, she'll share a birthday with [livejournal.com profile] magusronin - February 1st! So, close enough.

OMG SO EXCITED. She is literally DONE with the construction stage. We're on to beta now, and she'll be open for reserves and apps on January 20th. Look how shiny she is! T_T

Promotion post the third on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. ...You know, I think that sign might be my favorite.
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
Today has been a day for small things that I nonetheless find very exciting.

Excitement the first. Hanging with Lauren and Penny is always fun. I watched Lauren toss bits of meat for her, which she chased and even, once or twice, caught in mid-air. And she caught the lure before Lauren even had a chance to swing it properly, by flying to her head hopping down on it from about a foot away, the little cheater. What was exciting, though, was when she needed a bit more food in the evening. Lauren took half the meat and the glove, and I took the other half of the meat and the whistle, and we stood on opposite ends of the room to see if we could get Penny to fly back and forth between us for her tidbits. She'd never done this before but she went straight to it with no hesitation, which I thought was awesome. So that was exciting, and fun.

Excitement the second. The reason I was at Lauren's was, of course, to work on Aphelion, as we have been since FOREVER. Well, we worked all day, and at the end of the day we realized... we don't really have any more work to do! We've got to polish a few things, tie up some odds and ends, and post our missing bits to the comm, and then we're DONE. So we plan to meet Wednesday or something to do just that, shanghai a few friends to beta for us, and then omg cut the ribbon and open her up for apps! TT_TT She will indeed be a January baby!

So here's me, heavily promoting.

As you can see, safety is our primary concern on Icelus. Tell me you wouldn't want to join a game where we take such good care of our colonists.

And in the spirit of promotion, post the second on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. Feel free to poke, if you so desire.
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
…So I’ve been pretty much MIA from the internets for the last week or so, except for a handful of rp tags. Still talking to Batman!Dick Grayson (the best gay older-brother/alternate-self a Robin could have), and have been enjoying talking to Batgirl!Steph and a very pleasant chap named Jonas from Phoenix Requiem, a web comic I’ve never heard of but anticipate enjoying. My emails and LJ tags are backed up, I haven’t posted, I haven’t applied to jobs, I haven’t written the terrifying Christmas fanfic I had hoped to write, and I haven’t worked on Aphelion at all. Suffice it to say I’ve been much busier than I expected to be; every night I have fallen into bed, watched a couple episodes of Justice League, and passed the frak out. …So here’s a not-brief summary of what I’ve been up to.

Here, have an essay. )

…You already know about today. Except that the other thing about today is DOLLHOUSE DOLLHOUSE DOLLHOUSE OMG DOLLHOUSE.
zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
I don't know anything about Final Fantasy, so I have no idea who this guy is a crack version of. But I think I kind of love him. He makes me so happy. Capslock!Vayne Carudas Solidor's post to [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun:







...Now that's the Christmas spirit right there. :DD Also, he told Robin he hopes I'm having a seizure.

Robin, meanwhile, has successfully navigated his existential crisis, with the help of Jeannie and fake!Batman Dick Grayson!Batman. It's good to have friends. ...Even if one of your friends is a version of you several years older, wearing the Bat-suit, and in a gay relationship with Speedy, wtf.

In other news, Mary showed up out of the blue, wanting to stay on our couch. So I guess we have a houseguest tonight. Surprise!

I won't even be here, though. I'm leaving on a jet plane~ tonight for Hawaii, where I'll spend Christmas and New Years. HAHAHAHAHAHA, SUCK IT, REDS! XP ...Anyway, I probably won't have internet access for a few days, so... Merry Christmas/Merry Zolacmas/Happy Winter Holiday Of Your Choice. I love you guys!
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
Robin RP update!

Talking with Jeannie of "I Dream of Jeannie" equals instant happy for everyone involved. SHE'S SO CHEERFUL.

Conversely, having Robin talk to Batman equals an instant need for Robin to punch things. Especially if said Batman is Christian Bale movie!Batman, and is tired of masked teenagers coming up to him in [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun and acting like he should know who they are. Lol whoops~! I totally didn't know that would happen~! XDD

...Deadpool I still love you.
zolac_no_miko: (God-King of Hostilistan)
Still excited about RP-related things!


Also, the Espio I was talking to turned out to be the same one that was in Econtra under a different name. I discovered this when he said, and I quote, "Heh, the last time I met a Robin I was in a war camp. He was dating a moody greek goddess." And then I died laughing. And now Robin's all awkward and embarrassed, because talking about dating is a good way to make him flustered.

...In other news, Jarvis and I popped a tire on I-5. FUN RIGHT? It was pretty tame, except that it happened in a stretch with no exits to surface streets, just highways, so I had to pullover on the side of the highway. I was too chicken to change a tire by myself just a few feet away from SCARY TRAFFIC OF DEATH, so I called Mazda's roadside assistance to help me out. A completely unrelated tow truck got to me first, and after some mild confusion, the dude decided to help me out for free, even though he totally didn't have to. I hope lots of nice things happen to this man, he totally deserves it.
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
So, today was a lot of fun. I went over to Lauren's and we got some work done on Aphelion, and tossed flecks of meat around for the bird, and made enchiladas, and schmoozed with her extended family, and watched the Survivor finale, and watched silly internet videos, and watched Merlin. So all of that was really really fun.

Plus, my first test-drive of Robin is, in my mind, a resounding success! He is just as much fun to play as I thought he would be, and I've only just scratched the surface of his silly little self. Also, [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun really pulled through. Right off I got a Terra, which is deliciously awkward. I've also got an Espio, lol. But, omg, I'm having the most amazingly adorable conversation with a Wonder Girl, I've got a Dick Grayson!Batman, and he and Robin are busy ANGSTANGSTANGSTOMGANGSTing at each other like only Batfamily can, and omg Koriand'r needs to come back because nothing says awkward!amazing like Teen Titans' cartoon Robin meeting Teen Titans' comic canon Starfire (the hair! the absence of clothes!), and I want to watch his brain implode.

AND he's talking to the Stepford Cuckoos, and the mun is KNOCK ON WOOD DON'T JINX IT interested in our game, so that's exciting to have someone we don't even know interested in our game already AND I don't know anything about the Cuckoos but the mun seems to have basic grammar and spelling down so that's promising AND the mun is considering potentially playing Poison Ivy AND if the mun brings Poison Ivy to our game we might have a Harley Quinn as well. TT_TT

AND I have fallen madly, madly in love with Deadpool. TTT_TTT Marvel, why are you so good to me?

...So! I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN! ...Apparently I missed RPing. And damn we need to finish Aphelion post-haste because omg omg I want to plaaaaaaaaayy~! *bouncebounce*
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
*cough* ...Attention F-list RPers! I finished putting together my lovely lovely journal (complete with [livejournal.com profile] shichahn's beautiful icons) for Teen Titans' Robin: [livejournal.com profile] boy_wondering. Check it out! Also, if you're bored and/or wanna help me out some (I need the practice), feel free to bother him on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun, at this post right here.

...Now if we can only get [livejournal.com profile] aphelion_rpg off the ground. We are SO CLOSE OMG SO CLOSE. ...When we're done, you should totally join our game. You know you want to~! It'll be so much fun, promise!
