BEDA- 42 days until the One-hundred and Forty-fifth day of 2009.

Yes, that is probably the strangest title in the history of titles and yes there are forty-two days until may the Twenty-fifth.

May 25 is a popular day for things to happen. Of the many examples of this, my favorites are Nerd Pride Day and Towel Day.

History of Nerd Pride Day:

Created in Spain as 'día del orgullo friki' literally: Day Of The Pride Nerd or Nerd Pride Day.

It's on may 25th to… Continue

Books Read in 2008 (Many)

This is my list, finally making room for the 2009 list. There should be 60 here, or something.

Oh! I was going to somehow mark which books I hadn't read before 2008. I'll do that sometime... some of them I can't be sure of.

Here there be all the books I've read in 2008, unless I forget to add them.

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

Pattern Recognition - William Gibson

the engines of god - Jack McDevitt

I like surveys. Let's make a habit of this. Survey #1

1. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before? I started dating someone actually worth my while, I made new friends, I asked for help and I talked to my counselor about his inclination to donate his sperm.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I don't make New Years Resolutions. It's just a let-down.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Well. Kind of close. My cousin. She's having difficulties, though.

New Leaves...

Alt Title: 2008 In Memoriam:

Last year I traveled to Chicago with only $40 to spend for two and a half days and had a lifetime's worth of experiences that I will hold in the deepest, darkest and most elightened caverns of my heart.

Last year I was fired from my dream job and then hired to take care of an age group of kids that I have long feared but have taken on with a considerable amount of grace (if I do say so myself).

Last year I moved out of the parents… Continue

September Photo Contest is Open!

What you see, is what you get?

I’m not sure this is always true. And this month we’re going to see if we can test this theory.

Our theme this month is Abstracts. And our challenge to the Nerdfighters is to show us what you see in the world around you. The flow of color and intrigue of lines and shapes are the driving force for this month.

If you’re like me and more comfortable with landscapes and wildlife,… Continue

I'd delete it, but my picks for the Cabinet in that entry are still pretty much the same.

No, I was wrong, Hillary hasn't been announced as the running mate. There was an inaccurate headline at the bottom of the screen that set me off-guard, and I didn't bother looking it up because I thought, ok, well, there ya go, you know? And the way they were talking made it sound like she'd show up at the Convention and say, "Well, actually, VP isn't good enouch, bitches!" So I jumped the… Continue

The ticket and the Cabinet (YAY HILLARY!!)

So, it's official. Hillary Clinton has been announced by the Obama campaign as his running mate. (Normally, I'd post some sort of link to an article, but honestly, if you can't find something on your own by just Googling it really quick... I'm so sorry- you should stop reading right now, for if you're that dense, you'll have no idea what I'm talking about, anyway.) Hell. Yes. This is absolutely AWESOME, in my opinion. I would have preferred her as the actual nominee, but this is better than the… Continue

Shame on you, Andrea Mitchell ("Burn Goody Clinton")

I was watching Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC today, talking to some guy for the Democratic Party, and the topic was Hillary Clinton. She did a lengthier version of this report. She showed more footage of Hillary and harped on Bill a lot longer by interrogating the man she was interviewing. I was completely baffled and utterly appalled at how bloodthirsty Andrea was, how she tried to take everything the man said about Hillary and the Obama… Continue

You know what? Good job, Paris Hilton!

The first time I saw "the ad" that everyone is so in a tizzy about, I wasn't exactly thrilled with it, myself. I thought it was sexist and racist. Maybe I'm too feminst sometimes, but I immediately noticed the phallic imagery, the column and the Washington Monument. I know Jon Stuart doesn't think they are a big deal (he said something like, "That's where he gave a speech at!" to make fun of people making this analysis), but my argument… Continue

So, Otakon.

I'm going to Otakon this year. Which, is actually...

*Counts on fingers*

In about one month and 3 days.

(I'm counting Pre-reg as a day.)

Well, I know I promised Brigid and, like, two other people that my brother and I would video tape our cosplay experience.

I'm afraid that I won't be able to upload the videos to YouTube.

This is simply because more and more people I know are slowly acquiring my account through means beyond me.

It's none of their… Continue

"If it moves, shoot it! If it doesn't move, shoot it!" ~Anonymous Photographer

Of all the beauty in the world, we probably spend more time enjoying the beauty of plants than anything else. They surround us and invite us to study them, paint them, and photograph them. We are drawn to them. We plant them. Care for them. And enjoy their scents, their colors, their textures and their bounty.

And yet, we see only a tiny fraction of them. We stop and wonder at such a very few of them. Some of us are very aware of certain plants. (Thanks so much for allergy season.)… Continue

Me and Holden Caulfield

I just finished "The Catcher in the Rye" by J. D. Salinger and I found it fascinating! Holden Caulfield, the main character, is so fascinatingly pessimistic. But he is pessimistic in a strangly optimistic way. He is crazy - acctually the whole book is crazy. You should experience it on your own.

Don't go reading "The Sorrows of Young Werther" or anything like that right after "the Catcher" though...try and break it up with some feel good-litterature. Eeeerhm. I'm realizing as I'm writing… Continue
