I have a lot of random things on my mind. If you watch me on Twitter you've probably heard some of this already.
Sometimes I forget I used to write fanfic. I started in on the fanfic thing sort of late (if you ignore the Heathcliffe stories I wrote when I was eight) so my shittastic teen Mary Sue fics happened when I was 18 - 20 instead of 12 - 16 or whatever, but I think I got better. If you've read some of my shittastic fanfic I'd appreciate it if you just not mention it because dear God it's embarrassing.
But yeah, I stopped writing fanfic in 2006 or 2007. This train of thought is brought to you by some people commenting on a really short TMNT fic
I wrote once upon a time that I actually like. It makes me giggle.
I always say that I don't act my age and that I don't feel my age, but it hit me this morning that maybe I do. The people who are in their thirties now aren't the same people who were in their thirties when my parents were (duh). There are a shit ton of awesome people in their thirties that aren't stuffy, boring "adults". I've never been concerned with aging. I thought hitting 30 was kind of cool, it didn't make me feel old or anything. I already know I don't look my age, so why should I care anyway? But I still sort of saw "adults" in a negative light. When I think of adults I think of my parents, my aunts and uncles, my friends' parents, etc. People these days aren't them. Thankfully.
My work laptop has decided that I cannot internet. Basically I used to work in a government building and to be in that building I had to be registered on a website, we'll call it POOP. Well I no longer work in that building because they're kicking all the contractors out, so I'm no longer registered on POOP. I really have nothing to do with POOP anymore, and yet POOP has decided that since I'm not registered I cannot internet. I AM IN MY DINING ROOM! LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE! Stupid POOP.
It sucks when you're watching true crime shows and you've already heard about SO MANY of the stories. Seriously, so far I've been familiar with every couple in the Snapped: Killer Couples series.
Is there a shortage of interesting killers? I really don't think so. And they're totally missing an opportunity to bring up Charles Manson in this series, unless they're saving that for later. I'm not saying I condone what he did or anything, but I love me some Charles Manson. That whole story is fascinating.
Ryan took me to see Cirque du Soleil's Quidam. *squee* I hadn't even asked him about it, he brought it up to me! And now we're talking about seeing La Nouba again this year at Disney. So far I've seen Varekai, La Nouba and Quidam, and I would punch a clown to see Iris. OMG Iris! Could they at least put it out on dvd? AUGH! (Danny Elfman wrote the music, hence my glee.) Oh, and Quidam was fantastic btw. It had the best audience participation of any show I've ever seen anywhere EVER.
I really love my characters Ko and Trace, and I really want to do something with them. I WANT YOU ALL TO LOVE THEM TOO! Because they're fantastic. Though I'm honestly a little afraid to write Trace's story because she is a total Mary Sue so some of her traits will shed light on certain traits of mine. *cough* pain killer dependency *cough* I freely admit that they're both my Mary Sue characters, Ko is my positive, creative side amplified and Trace is my negative side... maybe amplified a little. Other people have characters like that too, right? This isn't weird?
I've gotten back into Gaia Online... yeah. I have nothing interesting to add to that.
I'm onnawufei there. I also have mules (onnawaffle and children_kill) but I don't do much with those. I mostly keep up with onnawaffle because it proves how long I've actually been on the site. (I still miss Ian's brown hair.)
I recently got a raise! Besides being awesome, this is also a little funny if you know how much I've worried about getting let go in the past year.
Finding Dory? Really? I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, some of Disney's sequels are fantastic. On the other hand, some are complete crap. But Dory is my favorite character (see stamp in header), so I'm just hoping I'll love it. I like to think that her and Marlin sorta hooked up, y'know? Not like... hooked up
hooked up, but she hung around, was part of the family, and all that.
Yeah I should probably shut up now. If you read all that you're awesome and deserve cookies.
