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.

My Favorite Mistake

27 07 2010

Going to the Once More with Feeling/Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog event at Dragon*Con 2009 late.

If I hadn't made the mistake of going late to find a huge line wrapped around the building, I wouldn't have met the friends I did that year at Dragon*Con.

Would I Survive No Internet for a Whole Month?

27 07 2010

Yes…….. but I would get very, very, very… very antsy…. and probably overdose when I got it back.

Do I Have a Best Friend?

27 07 2010

Who is your best friend and why?

Oh… that’s a tough question… hmm… If I were to be honest, I don’t really have one. Not really. I don’t have one single person with whom I can share all my secrets; I’m too paranoid for that. The closest approximation I have to a best friend would be Kris, because I share the largest percentage of my secrets with her… and I would probably trust her with my life… maybe.

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.
