It’s Been a Long Time

6 02 2012

I know. I haven’t been posting at all. I don’t even remember the last time I posted.  I’m sorry. The horrible thing is I’m posting this to tell you about a new blog I’m doing. I’ve heard some interesting things about going without shampoo. The thing that irked me the most when I was researching the topic was that there weren’t any blogs or articles with daily results/experiences.  I have a curious mind, so I set up this new blog to report everything I was doing, experiencing and seeing regarding my hair. I post photos and updates daily. So please check it out. It’s called Life Without Shampoo.





Too Damn Close, and I Give Up

19 08 2010

I give up! I can’t not talk about Dragon*Con. It’s too damn close and not close enough. I can’t wait. Anyone got a TARDIS? Time machine of any sort? no? Damn.

I can’t wait to see all the Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, DC Comics, Marvel, anime, Doctor Who, Torchwood, BSG, Buffy and Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, video game and many other cosplayers. Okay, those links all link to zazzle, and I get money if you buy anything from Zazzle within 45 days after clicking those links, but the links are relevant to their hypertext. Buy from them, buy from me. I need the money. I can’t get a job, I’ve been trying. So please.

Please?

Okay, anyway. I still can’t fucking wait ’til Dragon*Con… how many more days is it? Shit! that many? Damn you, time, and your apparent linearity even if you are wibbly wobbly and all that. Grr.





Another Post about That Thing Which Shall Not Be Mentioned

31 07 2010

I’m breaking my promise to my readers and myself, but I had to post this. I’m planning a choreographed Lightsaber Duel at that-thing-which-shall-not-be-mentioned with my roommate in the halls of the Marriott Marquis. If you’ve never been to the one in Atlanta… trust me when I tell you the halls are perfect for a Lightsaber Duel… and for generating an audience. We’ll have to be careful, though, so as we don’t get kicked out.

We may have to time it to Duel of the Fates as well.





Writing Style

29 07 2010

Well… apparently my writing style in this post is… well I’ll let this tell you:

I write like
Cory Doctorow

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Yeah… I wish. But that’s really what it said.





If I Had Unlimited Resources, I Would…

27 07 2010

If I had unlimited resources, I would make Tony Stark’s computer from Iron Man 2… I’m not obsessed. I swear…. No, really, Ian.

Why I May Never Costume

24 07 2010

I’m not sure I could ever costume. I want to, but I want to pretend to be too many different characters to ever decide on one…. Maybe next year I’ll go to Dragon*Con as a Jedi Knight, or Kaylee Frye, or Kilik, or Raiden, or Riku, or Link, or or or or or or or or or or or or or or or or or or or ror orororororororrororororororororororororro………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………//

Reboot. Sorry about that… but that’s the conversation I have with myself or a friend or two every year the weekend after Dragon*Con… And I always seem to have a meltdown towards the end. I can’t ever seem to decide what I want to do… and then I have a sort of nerd overload and always have to calm myself. That is why I believe I may never costume.
