Nonsensical Snowhell babble.


I know you have no idea what I'm on about nor do you care, but I just need a place to preserve things for posterity, and plurk is not great for that.

So, for some context: my Steve and his traveling companions, Beckett and Rydia, a.k.a Team Too Dumb To Live, made themselves horrendously ill burning furniture in one of the houses. This is apparently due to some sort of noxious death mold, but they didn't know that at the time, their first thought was THE FURNITURE IS POISON BECAUSE NORFINBURY IS A SADISTIC HELLHOLE (reasonable assumption). ...And when I say tremendously ill, I mean coughing, dizziness, nausea, and coughing up black goo for a solid week.

So, on the one hand, Team Too Dumb To Live. On the other hand, Dr. Clayton Epps, professional worry-wort, earnestly trying to keep his fellow prisoners healthy and safe. And the situation they're all currently in, which just gets funnier and funnier the more I think about it.

So. Steve, Beckett, and Rydia make themselves horribly ill burning furniture.

Clayton: "Stay here and rest, I'll go get food!"

Beckett: *Clayton doesn't even know he's sick, Beckett is actively hiding from him in another house because he was just horribly sick a few days ago and he's embarrassed*

Steve, Beckett, and Rydia: *NOT RESTING, go for a hike in a blizzard and BURN MORE FURNITURE, for science! (Steve is the ringleader)*

Beckett: *goes back to hiding, soon will have nothing to eat but herbal tea*

Rydia: *gets lost in the blizzard and ends up a full day's travel in the wrong direction in the funeral home, handcuffed to a toilet and made to endure a night of horrors while trying to chew her hand off*

Clayton: cMWalaa.gif

I just. I'm so sorry, Clayton. So sorry. XD

Also, we had an extensive plurk conversation about pee. A highlight: at least one of the characters is peeing into a bottle and using it as a hot water bottle to keep warm.

...I cannot tell you how much I love this game and these players. ♥_♥

In other news, have a barrel organ playing Smooth Criminal.

I had to change my plurk name to "Steve No", so, Snowblind's going well

So, I failed out of mini-wrimo pretty quickly. When I signed up in October, I didn't know I was about to jump back into RPing, and my new game started on the same day and... yeah, I've basically had no interest in anything else. And technically it's writing, I'm writing so much every day in the game, but... RPing is not what I need help with. Mini-wrimo is supposed to help me with my prose fiction projects, and it's not doing that for me this year. I can't even bring myself to care, because oh my god this game is too much fun, why do anything else, ANYTHING. ELSE.

In RL stuff, beginning of the month was also my second anniversary with Forrest. We did a nice little day trip to Makalawena, which is a GORGEOUS but hard to get to beach in Kona. The following weekend we had a little getaway to a cabin in Kalopa State Park.

Last weekend was crazy busy with dancing, climaxing with THE Glenn Miller Orchestra and all of us Hep Cats showing up in force to teach and perform and be awesome on the dance floor. I got all dolled up in my new red dress and did my hairs and make-up all period and wore my cute vintage-style dance shoes and felt SO FABULOUS. Look! (I'm on the left.) And look again!

Again, mostly my energies have been wrapped up in Snowblind. I am having hella fun, these people are my people, by which I mean TERRIBLE PEOPLE, I've never felt so warmly welcomed so quickly in a game, and I'm constantly crying laughing in the Snowblind plurks, everything is shame boners and severed toes and how many snowbos can we cram into the shower at once, and also how can I murder my character today?

Today what had me crying laughing was this plurk thread; I've filed all the serial numbers off and done some minor editing and I hope they don't mind me reposting this without permission, but.

Honestly, this needs to be saved for posterity. )

So anyway, that's my life lately. What up, nerds?

I haven't even applied yet and Snowhell is ruining my life

Getting more and more excited about SnowblindRPG. Reservations open tomorrow, and applications open November 1. I am so READY. In my soul, anyway; I feel like I finally have a good handle on all the rules and gameplay. Now I'm like, AAAAAAAHHH. NEED TO MAKE ICONS. NEED TO WRITE MY APPLICATION. AAAAAAHHHH. Making icons will be interesting, I always used to foist that off on Lauren-of-the-Photoshop-skills, but she's not in this game, so I guess I'm probably on my own. Also, Steve is my first not-animated character? Live-action is harder to screencap, omg.

Snowblind thoughtfully supplies a test drive meme that you can use for the roleplay sample section of the application, so I let Steve loose in there. And oh my god, I'm already having so much fun.

-This thread with Grey from Snowpiercer ...So there's this thing where all of the doors in Norfinbury seal at sunset, and if you don't make it inside before that happens, you freeze to death in the night. YES, THIS IS THE KIND OF GAME IT IS. So Grey gets stuck outside and he and Steve have a long (mostly text-based) conversation on their tablets while Grey slowly succumbs to hypothermia and Steve keeps him company, knowing there's nothing else he can do for him. IT'S SUPER CHEERFUL. *lying face down on the floor, weeping* Grey's mun is awesome, we might play together more even if she doesn't end up applying.
-This thread with Koriand'r. Dear god but I love me some Starfire. We're only 25 comments in and they're snuggling by the fire and Steve's already been slightly traumatized by too much breast exposure and there was a slightly dub-con snogging (Kori pulled her 'what, I'm only kissing you because I want to learn French, I get absolutely nothing else out of this, I swear' schtick) and Steve doesn't know WHAT the heck just happened and now he's trying to flirt and it's a fucking trainwreck. I'm enjoying this so much.
-This Cecil Palmer of Night Vale who is EXCELLENT, and who is also dying slowly of hypothermia, and Steve is trying to be there for him but Cecil is FREAKING HIM THE HELL OUT, oh god I cackle out loud every time the thread updates.

And there's Jim from Treasure Planet, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy, Ava from the MCU spin-off novel Forever Red, Roy Mustang, and Dick Grayson! :D

Seriously can't wait to jump into the game. Is gonna be fuuuuuuunnn! Steve's gonna be so miserablllllllllle! >:D

This post is made of food, music, and nostalgia.

Lauren came over today and we had our Cooking Awesome Food and Listening to Awesome Music party. We enjoyed the musical talent of such artists as Arcade Fire, Dr. Dog, Girl Talk, The New Pornographers, Sea of Bees, Mersault, Menomena, Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, Patrick Stump, Kristeen Young, and Trampled By Turtles. We also enjoyed listening the sweet sweet voice of Stephen Fry, watching The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, and playing biology-themed Bananagrams ('dissection' for the motherfucking win!).

Foodwise, we made Pumpkin Halwa: kabocha, almonds, cashews, craisins, saffron, condensed milk, etc, rolled into little gooey balls of tasty. We also made– and [livejournal.com profile] omg_alchemist veterans will appreciate this– orange zest brownies. Or, Three-Orange Super-Special Brownies, using orange zest, orange essence, and some chocolate-dipped candied orange peel we just happened to have lying around. They are just as amazingly delicious as Clara and I always thought they would be. T_T We also tossed together a pretty amazing soup at the last minute when we realized halwa and brownies did not a dinner make, comprising a whole pile of random things in the kitchen, including turkey broth, chicken, kabocha, two kinds of potatoes, a turnip, a leek, mushrooms, celery, parsley, garlic, ginger, shoyu, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and hot peppers. It was meant to be stew, but I'm not complaining.

Basically, for a rainy January Saturday... pretty freaking perfect.

So many penguins

[livejournal.com profile] bluerose16 and [livejournal.com profile] deathscytheheck, you have infected my brain.

This time in my dream the two of you (being completely obsessed) made a computer-animated short film about Lin and Liam in which Lin kissed Liam, and Liam got all floaty and happy, and then he fell asleep in class and had a dream. It was some kind of glorious icy wonderland full of icebergs and freezing streams and penguins and sea lions, and there was more Lin and Liam snogging and sex, and Lin being smug.

All of this is well after the dream in which I was trying to strap stuff to an Asian elephant with odds and ends of rope. Including a coffee table, and a baby pygmy hippopotamus.

A story told in emoticons

So yeah, it's been a while. My life has been fucking insane. @_@

But! As of Sunday, I am once more gainfully employed. :D

...At the Epiq System Call Center, same place I was working before. : |

The case I was hired for is really easy and straight-forward so far, it looks like it should keep me in employ for a while. Also, the Call Center seems to be better organized than it was when I left it. :D

I miss my old desk, though. I'm not in a corner this time, and I'm in full view of my supervisor, which means I can't read a book in between calls. D:

...So what I did instead today was scribble Teen Titans fanfiction on my company-supplied notepad. Appropriate use of office supplies y/y? :DD

I am extremely tickled by the idea of writing at work. I think I will do this every day. Knock out some Teen Titans fic and then maybe return to my neglected novel. :DDD

Aphelion has been EPIC recently, what with the Mod Plot, character death, fabulous new characters, and surprise!awesome plot logs. :DDDD

RP + work = Angela does not get much sleep. They had to hire me the week of the Mod Plot, didn't they? DX

Will and I went for a run today. Exercise ftw! :D

He and Lauren and I abruptly decided to go to Walla Walla for RenFaire this weekend. :DD

When Lauren gets back to Portland, she needs to let Penny go. D:

Because Lauren is going away to Saipan for the summer. D: ? :D ?

That is all for now, because it's past my bedtime. T_T

...Don't forget to hug a tree on Earth Day! :D

It's March 21st, which means it's Dick Grayson's birthday! At least, until they change the canon again. ^_^ So, happy birthday to the bestest Robin that ever was! *huggles him*

Richard's here hanging out, which is good fun. Last evening Dar made pasta from scratch, and the most amazing pasta sauce the world has ever seen, and really fantastic bread, and chocolate pasta, also from scratch, which we ate with strawberries and syrup and the caramel sauce she made and walnuts. IT WAS AMAZING I ATE SO MUCH OF IT AND THEN MY TUMMY HURT. Lauren came over as well and we watched Top Gear. It was good times.

Today (well, technically yesterday) it was beautiful (!) and sunny (!!) and warm (!!!), so Richard and Lauren and I went hiking in Forest Park, which was fabulous.

Then we had our Aphelion poker log, which was the most amazing epic failure due some stupid flash caching glitch that has been plaguing AIM for months. In 2 1/2 hours we managed to play one hand of Texas hold-em. Of course they started out with lots of banter and bickering, so there was that... we got partially through the hand and Hatter showed up, but she couldn't get into the chatroom. Lauren tried to invite her, and as a result got booted as well and couldn't get back in either. We spent half an hour twiddling our thumbs while she tried and failed to get in; eventually she made a new username and got in with that. By this point, however, it was almost bedtime for Paula, so we had to scramble to at least finish the one hand.

Meanwhile, in-game, the hand was also kind of a dismal failure. The flop was king of hearts, two of clubs, six of spades, the turn was queen of spades, and the river was a five of spades. I forget what everyone else had in the hole, but Robin had a ten of spades and a seven of clubs, and everyone had similarly dismal pocket cards; Church had the best hand with a pair of sixes. So the result was that everyone checked all the way through until the river, when Robin decided he could bluff having a spade flush and put fifty cents in. And he got away with it too... earning a grand total of fifteen imaginary cents (the small and big blinds, imaginary because they have no actual money to play with so the chips are worthless) and Church's track pants. ...YAY.

...So we're going to try to continue tomorrow, and we're all downloading Skype as a backup plan in case AIM hates us again. -_-;;

Dream, meme, and Dear Mun

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. )

O hai there other LJ

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

Stuff and things

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

Okay, stuff that only I care about and has no relevance to the real world, but I've been musing about recently. I realized recently that the odds of my Robin ever interacting with his Batman in an rp scenario are astronomically small. Because he doesn't technically exist. Batman never appears in the Teen Titans canon. Which means that no one will ever want to play him.

...How incredibly soul-crushingly depressing is that? A Robin forever without a Batman! i_i

EDIT: Completely unrelated, stole this from Ryan. Every post is repost repost. Too Late to Apologize, Declaration of Independence-style. GUYS. THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE MOST EXCELLENT THING SINCE EVER.

...My cat is clawing at my sweatshirt. It's less cute than she thinks it is.


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.

Oh hay, it's my other LJ

Quick LJ update, since I've been missing for a little bit. Let's make an itemized list again, those are fun.

1. Lauren and I greatly enjoyed hanging with Melissa and her Dad in Corvallis. We watched all of the RT shorts. It was fun. The falconry meet was also fun, if a bit fail. Tiny children thought Penny was cute, which was observant of them. We followed the longwingers in an attempt to see a successful duck hunt. ...Attempt, I said. The winter meet is supposed to be the duck hunters' meet, but as Randy said, there was a lot of trying, no dying. The weather was gorgeous, which meant the ducks weren't sitting on the ponds... we spent half the day just trying to find them. When we finally did, bird was doing a good flight, but just as flushed the ducks, a FUCKING BALD EAGLE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE and tried to eat the bird. (Becca, I blame you.) Next pond full of ducks, excellent flight, nice stoop... but out of all the lovely ducks on the pond, bird wanted the FUCKING CANADA GOOSE. Damn near got it, too, but not quite. All of the other birds were completely fail, except for the last flight, which knocked some feathers of a duck, but didn't quite manage to kill it. A pheasant and a pigeon died in completely unsatisfying ways, and that was it. *sigh*

2. The reason I haven't been on LJ is Aphelion started up. YAAAAAAAY!! It's been gobs of fun so far. Starting roster: Robin (Teen Titans), Church (Red vs. Blue), Tex (Red vs. Blue), Edmond Dantes (The Count of Monte Cristo), Sam Carter (Stargate), James May (Top Gear), and Richard Hammond (Top Gear). Poor Becca's being eaten by her thesis etc. and had to immediately put Sweets (Bones) on hiatus (;_;) but when she comes back it will be AMAZING. And Lauren's bringing in Shadow (Sonic the Hedgehog) this weekend, and Carrie's got the Master (Doctor Who) on reserve, and the addition of these two will only increase the awesomosity. :DDDD

3. After playing phone tag with Dan for a week and a half, I succeeded in speaking to him. He was born in Hawaii, was a kid in So Cal, and has lived in Portland since he was 10. He has a cat named Lincoln who he found as a kitten on the side of the road and rescued from certain death. He loves music, likes to sing, enjoys karaoke, and just joined a band as a singer. He likes dancing, and Dante's. He currently makes money playing poker. ...We have vague plans to meet up sometime.

4. Having James May and Richard Hammond in Aphelion finally got me watching Top Gear, which I've been meaning to do for months and months. AND NOW I CAN'T STOP. I seriously love this show guys. T_T

5. The Saints made it to the Super Bowl. HELLS YEAH can I pick a winner! GEAUX SAINTS GEAUX!!

That is all, carry on. *goes back to watching Top Gear, the BEST SHOW EVER*

This counts as being productive... right?

I finally finished Robin's profile, check it out! Like, he actually has a personality and backstory now, how awesome is that?

...I continue to be mortified to find myself reading Batman/Superman fic. I believe I mentioned enjoying Tim/Kon? Yeah, guess where that took me. ...I SWEAR I DON'T SHIP IT. Like, for me, Batman and Superman have this epic bromance. It's like this:

[Scene: Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are very, very drunk]


Bruce: OH MY GOD, I LOVE YOU TOO MAN, WHY ARE YOU HUGGING ME?! [shove shove, get off plz]

[End Scene]

...I don't see the sex, I really don't. But dammit if the fandom doesn't have some really freaking good writers. So I'm reading it anyway. ...Dammit.

Rock concert... and probable date?

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.

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.
