I feel like such a dork. x__x

But I love this show so much. The hamminess, the crazy over-the-top action, the Bruce Campbell, etc.

So much cooking to do later. DDD:

...I swear that someday I'll post something of substance in this journal. New Year's resolution? lol, maybe.

Sometimes, CG models just make me want to cry

music: Forgotten Sorrow - Aion OST

So on the weekends, instead of doing something productive, I've been spending my days playing Aion. It's a different experience than WoW, but I'll probably ramble on about that some other time.

Visually, the game is stunning. It is by far the prettiest game I have ever played, and I think it was totally worth it to get a new graphics card just to look at the beautiful characters and environment. And that's without even mentioning how amazing the gear and weapon models look. Seriously, vendor trash gear in this game looks better than top-tier raid epics ever did in WoW. It's somewhat mind-boggling.

However, one caveat...





Behold my "chainmail leg armor". It is shorter than a micro-mini, it is frilly, and it is Really. Freaking. PINK.

I don't mind that my character looks like Little Miss Fanservice. With MMOs, that's pretty much par for the course, but there is a certain point at which I have to stop and ask, "Really guys? Really??" Right now I can't even look at my character selection screen without facepalming. And of course these can't be remodeled or dyed, and I won't be replacing them for quite a while, as they have 1337 stats. So much for my dignity, lol.

Anyway, I guess here's to a fresh start in a new game and many new adventures.

In my pink chiffon mini-skirt. u__u;;

On the WoW side of things, WTF DID THEY DO TO JAINA??? She now looks worse than the female models from ALPHA. I mean, at least before she looked normal, if a bit bland, but NOW... @_@ Where's her badass hooded cape and pantsuit? She doesn't even look like her WC3 model!! Dammit Blizz, you made Sylvanas look awesome (and true to her design), why not Jaina? I don't even play Alliance, but she's always been my favorite female in Warcraft. This is a slap in the face to Jaina fans everywhere. :( QQ out.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

mood: lazylazy
music: Dead Man's Party - Oingo Boingo

I ALMOST SLEPT THROUGH HALLOWEEN.

That's kind of a lot of fail.

I've been sick for most of the week, but thankfully not as bad as others have been this season.

Lately I've really taken to reading fanfiction again, and I really want to start working on my own stuff, like, for reals. After years and years of lurking. I've spent the last few weeks re-reading some of my favorite novels for inspiration/direction (which I hope will never turn into unconscious plagiarism PLEASE OMG), most notably Good Omens. (Bad idea. Now I feel more inadequate than ever. =x That book is so amazing. I would totally subscribe to Warhammer Online just so I could make a Witch Hunter, name it Shadwell, and run around spamming macros like "GIT AWAY FROM ME YE BLOODY HOOR" and "/emote points a finger at you menacingly.")

On that note, I think it might also be time to finally suck it up and cancel my WoW account. >.

WELL THAT WAS CLOSE

music: Never Gonna Give You Up - Rick Astley

So a coworker and I almost got laid off from work today. ALMOST. Apparently there was some sort of "math error" made by the financial department that made them think we were being paid more than we actually were. ~_~ My boss let me know first thing in the morning, so I was pretty much freaking out all day until he came back and set the record straight later in the afternoon. (During that time I retaliated by spending most of my hours looking at AMVs on YouTube...I feel kind of bad now. x_x)

I feel like I've been Rickroll'd. Or something. (Boss: LOL NVM GUYS I WAS JUST KIDDING ;D)

AARRGGGHHH

What happens when you show Fandom!Secrets to NORMAL people

music: Beautiful Girls - Sean Kingston

So I was on gchat today with my (non-fangirl) IRL friend and I introduced her to fandomsecrets. Yeah I know. What was I thinking? Apparently she read through a few posts since she was silent for a bit before finally messaging me with, “People write fanfiction about NCIS :(?”

…I lol’ed my ass off.

Then I proceeded to explain the magical phenomenon that is Tony/Gibbs slash, which of course caused her to wail in horror and cite Rule 34 for killing her brain (lol if only she knew how bad REAL Rule 34 material can get).

This is why I’m terrified of people I know IRL finding out that I’m a fangirl. They would judge me SO HARD. >.

Serendipity and Missed Opportunities

Oct. 8th, 2009 | 10:47 pm
mood: aggravatedaggravated
music: Loituma (Leekspin) Techno Remix!

So I was on my way home from work today and who should I run into but Randy and Captain Stottlemeyer from Monk.

Yeah. Randy and Stottlemeyer. MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS FROM THE SHOW. Right in the middle of freaking Union Station.

I was kind of half running, half-walking my way out like usual, trying to catch my next bus when I just happened to notice all the lights, screens and camera equipment. “Oh I guess they’re filming here again,” I thought to myself. I was wearing my earbuds and had the volume of my mp3 player turned up to full blast so I was somewhat tuned out and not really paying attention to my surroundings. Then I made it out of the main corridor where you exit from the platforms.

“Oh hey, it’s Randy and Stottlemeyer.”

I literally did a double-take.

OMGWTF IT’S RANDY AND STOTTLEMEYER AND I JUST WALKED PAST THEM!!!!!!!

I immediately backtracked and sure enough, they were right there, pretty much minding their own business and reading their scripts, 3 FEET AWAY FROM ME. I was totally shocked. There wasn’t really a crowd or anything or maybe everyone there was a cast/crew member. I’m not sure.

Somehow, despite this incredibly serendipitous turn of events, I somehow managed to convince myself I needed to go catch my bus.

WTF BRAIN, WTF!???!?!? *headdesk* I am kicking myself SO HARD for that right now.

Why didn’t I at least take a picture with my phone or something? Rrraarggghh… I mean I suppose I hesitated at first because they looked busy and no one else was like zomg autographs plx, BUT STILL. I’ve been watching this show since the beginning (since I was in high school!) – how could I have let myself miss out on this?

Also, I know that Ted Levine plays Cpt. Stottlemeyer, but for the life of me I couldn’t remember Randy’s real name. @)_@ (It’s Jason Gray-Stanford.) All these years he’s just been RANDY to me. (Not even Lt. Randy Disher, lol.) Seriously, those two are the reason I still watch Monk.

Really, what should I have done? Should I have yelled, “OMG Randy, you’re my favorite!”? Should I have gone up to them and said, “Hey I’m a huge fan. Can I take a picture?” I suppose that might’ve worked. I’ve seen quite a few celebrities in passing but have never ever approached them before. I guess I’ve always been terrified of them thinking I’m a total loser fangirl that’s acting creepy/wasting their time. And I really don’t think I could handle it if Jason Gray-Stanford were to be like, “Um, please leave me alone, kid.” I would probably have cried. >.<

Man I haven’t missed out like this since Peter S. Beagle was at Anime Expo.

LE SIGH. I AM SO MAD AT MYSELF.

God I love TV

music: Loves Me Not - t.A.T.u.

Yay Friday! It’s like…the only good day of television for the whole week!

Finally getting caught up on NCIS, Monk, Psych, and Law & Order: CI. Totally great episodes tonight. Monk’s always a tad on the meh side since it’s the final season and they’re focusing more on character interactions than mystery plots, which is normally the show’s strength. Good thing Randy and the captain are there for backup lulz, which is always a good thing. Haha, whenever I look at Meat Loaf, I can’t stop imagining people saying “His name is Robert Paulson” in my head. >.<

Psych just keeps getting better and better. I’m totally impressed. Tonight, not only was there a decent plot but also Very Cool Guest Stars (Kenan Thompson! Urkel! Boyz II Men!!) and Shawn/Gus humor at its best. There was even a crossover joke. (“Bob’s Your Uncle” >__>;;) Granted, at least some of the jokes fall a little flat, and for both Monk and Psych you could predict who did it within the first 15 minutes. (Alas, good mystery is hard to come by these days.) There was also an instance of  “You Fail at Computer Science Forever” that should be duly noted. But still, BOYZ II MEN!!! W00t!!! (Also, Hammerpants. “5 years behind the curve” bahahaha)

I think I called the ending to L&O: CI from…the intro. >< I guess it was more the assortment of “cool moments” that kept me watching. That forensics tech looks EXACTLY like my coworker. x_x And there was that girl from Coyote Ugly! Plus, a Christina Rossetti reference. Not a bad episode overall. Omg Eames = <3333. I don’t know why but I can’t stop staring at her and thinking how cool she looks. @_@ And I love how she seems to say everything I’m thinking while watching an episode. It’s really very uncanny…

Really, I don’t know what I would do without USA and their reruns. XD
