I did

Happy early Easter!

My Blueberry is doing really well and I'm so grateful to have a working computer and yay. I've been putting it through hell lately, watching and downloading tons of stuff just because I can, and it's held up fabulously well. I did manage to get a virus less than a week after we bought it, but I kicked its ass and now everything's gravy.

Oh! I forgot last time, but my friends and I started a tumblr for nerd-themed cocktails. We just started officially last week, but I think it's going to be lots of fun. The first drink is Star Trek related. Please to be taking a look if you're interested?

More meme time.

- Comment with "Hit me!"
- I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you.
- Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people.

niamy_tak asked...

1. What is your biggest fear?
But I guess, one of the biggest would be something happening to my brother. Our family's been going through a number of things recently, and the past year or so has really helped me to realize how much I love my brother. He's in a difficult spot, and the possibilities weigh on my mind a lot. I just want him to be happy and healthy.

2. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Dog. I love animals in general, and I've got no beef with cats, but I have always been a dog person. Whenever I see a dog anywhere, I say "puuuppppyyyyyy" in a really stupid voice and start cooing over it like a slow child and then my friends make fun of me. I honestly can't help it.

3. What was your first real fandom?
Hetalia! If by real you mean active participation and establishing friendships and whatnot. I'd always ducked in and out of things but Hetalia was the first one I stuck around for.
Deep dark secret: the first thing I ever wrote fanfiction for was a show called The Young Ones.
Yep, it was Young Ones slash.
...and the show that introduced me to the concept of slash was Red Dwarf. I'm beginning to sense a pattern here.

4. Do you have a favorite Simpsons episode?
Now that is a hard one! Especially cause there's a bajillion to think back on.
For the sake of sanity, I'll just say Marge vs. the Monorail. I mean, it's a classic, it's a musical, it's "based on" a musical that's close to my heart, it guest stars Leonard Nimoy, and it was written by one of my comedy heroes, Conan fucking O'Brien.

5. What was the last film you saw?
Source Code. It came out a couple of weeks ago. Dunno if it was released in England yet, but it's about a guy who wakes up on a train, in someone else's body. He wanders around all confused and then the train explodes and he wakes up somewhere else. Turns out he's in a special military program centered around a scientific breakthrough that lets him live through the last few minutes of a dead man's memories. He's supposed to be going through the guy's memories and trying to find clues to help him figure out who planted the bomb that blew up the train, cause the bomber's planning a second, much more destructive attack in the heart of Chicago. The only problem is that he doesn't have any memory of how he ended up in this program to begin with, so he's frantically looking for clues but he's also like WHAT'S GOING ON and it's all cah-raaazy.

It's actually pretty good. There are a few parts where the continuity is like "whut", but overall it's really enjoyable if you're into high-concept sci-fi.

Oh, and it was directed by Duncan Jones!
Also, Jake Gyllenhaal is a fox.

1. What's your earliest memory?
2. What is your favorite video game EVER?
3. What was the best class you ever took (or are taking)?
4. If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be??
5. What's your favorite sandwich filler?

WHY YES HE DID, Conan is a Grade A BAMF. He was an SNL writer/extra too cause he just had to go and be all kinds of awesome.

your questions have been answered in an unnecessarily long manner 8D

ah, the good old days of SNL /sniff/. he was talking about being an intern there on his TBS show last week XD. i forgot what famous dude they had on the show, but they needed to tell him something that was going to make him unhappy, and they sent Conan in to do it XD.

Hit me!
And do you mean Red Dwarf of the British comedy type?
Apr. 25th, 2011 10:59 am (UTC)
Re: Hit me!
1. What's your favorite fruit?
2. What kind of weather do you like?
3. Are there any weird (or slang) words you tend to use in everyday conversation?
4. What was the last concert you went to?
5. Do you like to doodle? If so, what kinds of stuff?

Why yes, yes I do. It seems to me that the majority of Red Dwarf was a gaysplosion of the highest caliber.

    Thank you! If you ever get more mad money, come on down. I can cut a discount for friends. :)
    I can also do custom pieces if that ever interests you!

    Those are super cute. Wish Tery hadn't lost her job and I still had mad money :(
  • 8 Aug 2012, 12:15
    No no, I've just been having a rough year. I usually keep up with my friend's list, though! It's just the last couple of weeks that I've missed. I hope you and Tery are doing well!

    Yeah, most of the people I talked to had a pretty crappy year.
    I hope it's good too!
