SORRY 'BOUT THE CAPSLOCK. LIKE I SAID, [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek PARTY POST. IT'S KINDA STUCK.
Right so, I'm on the internets, and I have several tabs of fic from assorted fandoms open, when I realize 'Hey, I haven't checked io9 today!' So I head on over there and I open up four or so tabs of articles. I read a couple and then I get to this one, and the first line gets me totally confused about which tabs are my fic tabs and which are my article tabs. For a minute I was like, 'Pfft! This author is terrible!' And then I was like, 'Maybe it's just the flimsy set up for some very PWP stuff.' And of course that prompted me to keep reading and then I was like ':OOOOOOOh. *facepalm*'

I didn't get much sleep last night, ok?
I got free tickets to the Scream Awards for looking awesomely nerdy, and in celebration I treated myself to these, which I couldn't really afford, but which are also awesomely nerdy.
Comic-Con '09 )
I'm about to go collapse into bed so that I can get up early tomorrow to get dressed, but I'm dying to post. Alejandro and I went down to the Convention Center today to pick up our 4-Day passes to Comic-Con and go to preview night. We got off the trolley and crossed the tracks and on that first corner, there was a man dressed in a Star Trek TOS red shirt, hollering about how the space vampires had come, and handing out flyers for some fan-something. (I assume the fan-something involved space vampires, I didn't have a chance to look at the thing.) I'm being completely serious when I say I got a little choked up. I wish I had the language to describe how that guy made me feel. The internet fills most of my need for community and pack, but there's just nothing that can compare to taking four days out of real life to go somewhere where no one looks at me funny no matter how how eccentric my sense of fashion is, or how geeky I'm acting, or how socially awkward I feel.

Alejandro thinks I'm silly for being so sentimental in the first place, and for getting such an intimate sense of community at a con like Comic-Con, which is huge and international and ridiculous, but I can't help it. I feel like I'm home.

Aw, jeez.

Neveryoumind how I stumbled upon that.
Everyone knows about this, right? I'm sure responses are going to be mixed, as for me, this is one of those things that's going to keep me riding high for weeks. Especially this report from London. (One of the more enthralling and intimidating chants that kept occuring was ripped off 300: "ANONYMOUS! WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION?" 500 people: "AROOUGH! ARROOUGH! ARROUUGH!") I just... sometimes the internets are so unbearably awesome!! It's like the apple thing, only 7,000 times better! It makes me happy to be a human and an internets person.

[livejournal.com profile] mere_buff_4 commands me to post! And so I post! I am ever her devoted servant.

I am sick. Something is wrong with my foot. Also, I'm kinda freaking out because one of my bosses said she needs to talk to me tomorrow. No matter how well I behave, whenever someone says they need to talk to me, my immediate reaction is 'I didn't do it! Nobody saw me! I was young and foolish! I don't remember anything! The sheep are lying! I blame society!'

Still haven't seen Supernatural or Torchwood. :( My brother put Star Trek on the Netflix queue and has been force-feeding it to me every time I have a spare moment. I still haven't got rid of this cold enough to try my BPAL either. The world is conspiring to keep me from that which my soul loves.

So anyways, have some pieces of wisdom from my professors:

Oh jeez, it's a mac. What the hell I am supposed to do with a mac? Pray? - Prof. upon entering classroom and seeing the provided computer

You're made of the non-metal elements. You're not a robot. You don't go grrrr... *robot impression* ...Well, I mean, you can do that if you want, but you're still not a robot. - Prof.
Aww. *hangs head* - SomeGuy

And here's a funny song. ^-^

ETA: I will be making an icon post soon, I promise! It'll have requests and everything!
Well, I really need some Briar Rose yarn. Actually, I need lots of Briar Rose yarn. Right now.

I've started watching Torchwood. *facepalm* This is what you do to me, Spn hiatus/strike. I get so hungry for some sweet and somewhat subtle brotherlove, I gnaw my nails down and roll around on the floor, moaning and chewing on furniture, until I get so desperate that I turn to the BBC. Well, ok, I don't roll around on the floor. Torchwood: instead of being subtle and brotherly, it just has obvious rampant gayness. "Wanton" is the word I would like to use here, actually. Anyways, it's some good light entertainment.

Tonight Alejandro and Fedora went and got Guitar Hero III. *facepalm, headdesk* They've been playing it for... 5 hours and counting. I'm ready to kill Pat Benetar.

Today, [livejournal.com profile] mere_buff_4 told me she was feeling awesome. It made me all warm and fuzzy inside. S'been too long since she felt good, sez aye. Clearly, this catapulted me into the happy place of talking like a pirate.

And now for some cooey, gooey, baaaaaaaby Abigail time!

It's long, yes. Movie Maker wouldn't let me clip it, and I'm too lazy to look for other software. Anyway, her eyes are so gorgeous. I can't get over them. That's MamaGoddess narrating, and Plumie holding her, btw.
FLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIST. I have returned from TEH COMICON, where I saw ERIC KRIPKE and SERA GAMBLE and JENSEN ACKLES (Jared was not there, and the whole room went 'Aaaaaaawwww...') and BEN EDLUND, who is the most adorable pale skinny geek pirate ever. The whole was fucking awesome, which is actually not what I expected. I know you are all gasping in shock, and ready to disown me, but here's how it is. I'm from the old skool hardcore days when you just didn't talk about fandom. I've always been very hush-hush about my fangirlishness, and cons and panels and such make me squirmy and embarrassed. Don't ask me to explain this, it's just some deeply ingrained shame that I have to deal with.

Panel! )

I was supposed to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] loveisimmortal, but that didn't actually happen (see below). I saw her from a distance and waved and hollered, but alas, no quality time.

I went to Horton Plaza to get food, because I hadn't eaten since I gave blood that morning. (P.S. The goodie bag they give you for giving blood at Comicon is pretty cool. My brother now has an awesome Picard action figure. He came with a flute and everything.)

After a slice of the most delicious pizza in all creation, I met up with [livejournal.com profile] grimmus and he was his usual badass self. He was squeeful because he got several of his comics and graphic novels signed. Whenever I hang out with him, he just ends up following me around while I faff about and spend money. Comicon is no exception, I guess. But my own failboat aside, he is very good company for several reasons, not the least of which is that he is very gentlemanly.

And now I am home, eating butter fudge, loving my new shoes, and vaguely stressing about the fact that I am not even half packed to go to Thailand tomorrow. I'll try to post tomorrow before we leave. :)
#1 - BPAL Banners are organized and posted. [livejournal.com profile] mrsveteran, yours are there. That post will be updated with any new ones, and I'll just link to it when that happens.

#2 - The library called me. (I put in an application there for a substitute technician and they put my on this list, so every time they need work they call me, but so far I've never actually worked for them yet.) They want me to maybe work at the El Cajon branch with their summer program. I totally forgot to tell the woman on the phone that I'm gonna be out of town for 17 days at the end of this month. Every time the library thing comes up, I stress out. It's like ground rush, only it's adulthood I see screaming towards me. Fucking terrifying. Which is funny, because it takes like a year to get through the interview process with the county. I'm just scared that I'm gonna give up a job I love that works with my school schedule, for one that I hate that doesn't. I need to keep reminding myself that I can always say no thank you.

#3 - Did I tell you, flist, that I'm going to be out of town for 17 days at the end of this month? I leave for Thailand on the 29th with Fedora and Alejandro to visit my dad. I'll have an internet connection, but it will be slow.

#4 - Supernatural @ Comicon! On the day I'm going! And [livejournal.com profile] loveisimmortal and I can shake hands and say howdy and such!

Sent MamaGoddess and siblings out to the Beatnik. That place is the pretty defensible and has lots of supplies, so I'm about as not-worried as I can be under the circumstances. Spent three hours trying to find where I wrote down the code to the gun safe. The only one Papa took to Thailand with him (haven't heard anything from there yet, btw) was the .357, so I have plenty here. Check in everybody, how're you all holding up?
