Most people outside of the U.S. don't realize this, but the delegates of the Constitutional Convention were overwhelmingly composed of two prominent groups within early American society: zombies and vampires.
Ben Franklin, of course, was a werewolf.
I seriously think that everyone in the Tea Party thinks the Founding Fathers were like the Justice League or something, battling evil, tyranny and injustice everywhere they found it. The Founding Fathers were NOT a superhero team, completely infallible and always right. Although the thought of George Washington as Superman, Thomas Jefferson as Batman and Ben Franklin as the Flash is an amusing thought.
And, of course, this beautiful summation of history wherein it is explained how the Founding Fathers abolished slavery:
john adams and john hancock. see, they built a time mechine, and used to to lanch them selfs forwards in time and join forces with ab lincon after there time mechine exploded upon reentry. together, the trio hacked, slashed, shot and killed there way across the south, till they finaly had an epic duel with the forces of slavery in the captial of the confedates. john adams, an old man, was mortaly wounded, and lay dieing. then, albert enstine steped in. claiming that history must be repaired, he took adams and hancock, and transported them back to there own time, lieing adams upon his death bed.
then, with his work complate, slavery abolished, and the time line restored, enstine nodded with statsfaction, and went to pick up stephen hawking, for there own trip to the future...
Politics, comics, and time traveling zombie historical figures. Of course I love this stuff.
No wonder I've been so cranky and out-of-sorts lately. This one crept up on me, since I wasn't supposed to start for another week, at least. Stupid ovaries and their stupid lack of time. IT'S ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE ONCE A MONTH YOU STUPID LUMPS OF FLESH.
*goes off to maul some chocolate then lay down*
... am definitely coughing less though.
Maybe tomorrow (since this is 12 hour stuff) I'll only take 1 tablet instead of 2.
Everything's kind spinny.
So, of course -- of course -- I started my period today. Today, when I expected it last weekend, and when I have an appointment tomorrow at the DMV. AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH. Tomorrow morning, even, just to make things worse. I feel so stabbity about this. I'm totally going to chug Advil tomorrow since I have no Midol.
And, even better, the weather has taken a turn for the worse, so it's windy and cold and there's rain. There will be rain tomorrow.
DMV visit is just to renew my driver's license, so nobody worry that I did anything bad. XP Hopefully, I will be in and out in a reasonable amount of time, or I might slaughter people in the waiting room.
I'm just hoping that I bleed out early (that sounds so terrible to say) because I was going to wear a white dress on Easter. DX
At least I have a whole package of Hershey's chocolate bars. I will EAT THEM ALL.
In other news, I just had lunch.
I still want a cheeseburger. And I want my ovaries to finally start my period instead of me having this lingering lower back pain for no reason. :x I swear, I can feel when an egg gets squeezed out. And it hurts like a bitch.
And it worked. A little. It felt good anyway.
Until my hand slipped, and I ended up gouging the side of my neck with my nails. Nails which have gotten long again. x__X;; Now the side of my neck looks like I got mauled by a bear, and is all pink and got bleedy because of the broken skin.
At least I'm not thinking of the crick anymore.
*is a lump of not moving*
I think this is the period where I eat everything in sight. I'm having cravings, but I'm not sure what for. I just demolished half a bag of Cheetos, some pecan Turtles, and a Blow-Pop (sour apple). This after having a Lava Flow smoothie (IRONY I KNOW BUT IT WAS DELICIOUS). And I'm still hungry for dinner.
There's also Hagen-Daz ice cream and a caramel turtle pie in the freezer. And one blessed package of Cadbury Creme Eggs.
I just might survive.
Work in Progress (WIP) meme:
Blanket warnings for... yaoi/shounen-ai, Elricest, smut, and everything everyone loves to read from me. YMMV on some of these, but they're generally safe. And it's not EVERYTHING that I've got in the grinder. Just some of my older stuff. >_>;;
( I'm almost ashamed of how many I have here... )
It broke me. Not completely, of course. But it broke something in my brain and now stuff is rattling around pleasantly. Which is strange, because it's not like I haven't seen fics or RP where the keyblades are sentient. But still.
I don't need to be thinking about anthropomorphic Riku/Soul Eater fic. I don't.
... this song should also not be playing in the background while I'm reading.
... I will note that any doodle requests will be done in Paint, using my laptop's touchpad. So please, be kind to me.
*waits for Sharon to come out of no where to request Heero/Duo*
Or, at the very least, had really excellent cosplay of him. I was walking around, and I had a short hair cut and was wearing the green tank top and jeans, and everyone was very impressed by this. I felt awesome and like I could do anything, even destroy a giant space ship falling onto the Earth.
Obviously, Heero is trying to tell me something subconsciously.
Perhaps that he is quite fabulous.
Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...
The True Fan
OOC is blasphemy, canon is everything.
Once you fall in love with a movie, book or TV series, you are loyal like an old dog. You take fanfiction quite serious and use it as a substitute after the canon ran out.
You are probably a walking dictionary of your favourite fandom and you are picky about what you write and read. The closer to the "real thing" fanfiction is, the more you like it.
You rather explore a character in all depth, see new sides and learn more about them than creating new characters or mix up the situations they are in.
... how did I avoid the 'Shipper' or 'Weirdo' result? Aaaaaahhhhh maybe I'm losing my touch!
Icecaps, the Gulf Stream, and the Ice Ages. Knowledge. Get you some.
Also, the Azores. Added because I like that word and they're also relevant to this topic.
Started last night actually, just before I went to bed, but didn't think it was actually my period because, well, it's a week early. I now have underwear soaking in the sink so it doesn't stain. Merry Christmas, have some TMI. I am totally blaming luscious_sarah for this; her and her estrogen of DOOM.
I'm going to go curl up somewhere now. And eat chocolate.
*nibbles her bagel and drinks coffee*
No other real job-related news, except for co-worker drama, which I think, is somewhat worse than resident drama. After all, the residents are legitimately crazy. >_>;;
Been doing little stupid updates via Facebook, but I guess everyone here should know that I'm trying to fight getting a cold. I've been chugging Airborne since earlier this week, since I've been getting snotty when I sleep and when I wake up in the morning and... pretty much the rest of the day. ^^;; Sneezing frequently too, which is strange, because I'm not a big sneezer. But no coughing, so that's good.
Ooooooohhh coffee... I love you.
Okay, I think it's time to stop making posts at work, even though I'm not doing anything yet. It's Friday, and today is usually the slow day.
Playing this game so much has led to some wonderful observations and geekery.
-- FUCK YEAH SEPHIROTH. I unlocked him as a playable character (as well as his alternate outfit) as soon as I had enough points. Let me tell you, having Sephiroth run around half naked and killing things is endlessly fun. And he has a really really... I guess it would be beautiful way of fighting. He doesn't make too many extraneous movements, so he's very fast and deadly. He fights like he expects to kill everyone he touches with one strike. And that's usually the case!
Unfortunately, that also means that because he moves like he will OHKO everything, he has bad recovery time after an attack. >_>;; Seriously, after he connects an attack, he kind of stands with his sword out before a sort of flourish, which means if he doesn't OHKO (and I don't make him dodge fast enough after), he's completely open for a counterattack.
But it's okay, because I HAVE SEPHIROTH RUNNING AROUND HALF NAKED AND KILLING THINGS. Also, yes, he likes to set stuff on fire. His EX Mode attack (a.k.a. Limit Break) looks exactly like when he set Nibelheim on fire, and he's standing in front of the raging flames. Bravo, Squeenix. Bravo.
-- Have a massive hard-on for Firion. He's just so... woobie. He's an awesome fighter, which makes my life easier. But his dream of wild roses is just so cute. And he makes Cloud run around to rescue his rose which was stolen by Sephiroth. Bwahahahah. Hoenstly, why aren't there more Firion/Cloud fics, huh? I mean, really.
-- Kept expecting Tidus to burst into tears during his chapter, but he didn't! Also, he is fast, which makes me happy.
-- On a related note, Jecht, you are like the worst dad ever. But you teasing Tidus about crying like a pussy is hilarious. You are still a bastard though, and I fucking hate that you spam your attacks. You keep killing me if I don't get away. :/
-- Cecil, you are so so pretty. But that doesn't excuse you from being an absolute bitch to play. Why must you be so slow in Dark Knight form? And you jump like there's a ton of bricks attached to your feet. And WHY CAN'T YOU JUST START OUT IN PALADIN FORM? My life would be so much easier if I didn't have to do an airborn HP attack just to get you into you SO MUCH BETTER AND STRONGER mode.
Just... stand there and look pretty. :x
-- Squall... *hee* ♥ ♥ ♥ I have nothing coherent to say about Squall, except that he's badass and faster than I thought he'd be. Oyes, I will indeed spam all your close-range combos. ilu. ♥
-- Cloud... ♥ ♥ ♥ *explodes into sticky goo all over the place* Less emo than in Advent Children, but not as dorky as in the original FFVII game. But you can equip him with a Snowboard so it's all good! He's not as fast as I'd like, unless he's using certain attacks, but it's okay because his sword pretty much lets him Defense Crush everyone else.
Also, you can equip crossdressing accessories onto him (I really need to get my hands on that set), that gives him extra bonus boosts. Seriously. It's some set of accessories that is only equippable on the girls in the game. And Cloud. Bwahahaha. Yet another point in Squeenix's favor.
Okay, I'm done with my geeky squeeing for now.
No, this has not been caused by me obsessively re-playing the game. >_>;;
Also, it sucks because I have those extra icon spaces, but you CAN'T USE THEM IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PAID ACCOUNT. That's totally not fair.
♥ First of all, for the foodies on my flist (or wanna-be foodies like me), you can go here to sign up to recipe 8 free recipe booklets. I love recipes since I can make practically anything as long as I have a recipe to follow. There's a good selection of choices here, from bread baking recipes, to seafood, to cooking with wine. I signed up to get all of them. XD;;
♥ Now for a bit of humor... Uncomfortable Plot Summaries. Exactly what it says; plot summaries of a bunch of movies and books, in a very uncomfortable fashion. Some of my favorites include:
-- 300: Gays kill blacks.
-- Highlander: Elderly immigrant destroys property.
-- Harry Potter: Celebrity jock thinks rules don't apply to him, is right.
-- Lord of the Rings: Midget destroys stolen property.
-- The Golden Compass: Critique of Catholicism upstaged by polar bear fight.
XD;; Joss ends up on the list for pretty much everything he's ever done, too.
♥ Now, because everyone loves zombies and literature, have Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's Pride and Prejudice, but with zombies! I BET YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING. I want to read this, if only for the opening line.
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains."
♥ This has been passed around, but I'll link it, too, in case anyone hasn't read it. Why Aren't People Commenting On My Post/Story/Whatever?
♥ Oh, and since we all love food around here, this is the perfect way to end this post: The Fandom Recipe Book. I still haven't downloaded it yet (because of my slow-ass connection), but everyone says it's really good.
... and now, time for lunch!
Fill your Super Meter a second time, and you'll have the option of triggering "Tea Time," which, as the name does not at all suggest, puts Hatsworth into a battle robot suit.
Yes, it's true. Louise, tea and giant robot suits remind me of you. I must also buy this game once I have the money to do so.
The picture under the cut is the equivalent of a cute nuclear bomb. You are warned. I will bear no blame if the picture causes you to claw your eyes out over the overwhelming cute.
1) Yes, that is me. As a baby.
2) Yes, that is a watermelon.
3) Yes, you may froth at the mouth over the cute. =__=;; I'll just give you the expression in my icon over it.
( ABANDON HOPE ALL YE WHO ENTER )
Got a mild cough now, but it's a throaty cough from too much mucus, and not a chesty cough that means I've got bronchitis. Yes, I know the difference. I do feel like I got hit by a truck. Went to bed super early last night with my beloved Nyquil (midnight! I went to bed at midnight!), but I kept waking up every three hours. Seriously, at 3am, 6am, and 9am. But in between those times I was pretty knocked out when I wasn't tossing and turning or getting up to blow my nose.
Didn't roll out of bed until 11:30am, and still feel like shit. In fact, I'm considering just going back to sleep again. And it's 1:30pm right now. Whoo. Two hours of consciousness.
I don't even know if any of this makes sense. Maybe I should lie down.
A snot saturation indicator on tissues.
No really. Hear me out.
See, like how they have different 'levels' of tampons based on how much, uh, 'moisture' they can absorb? Like light, regular, super, and super plus. Well, they should make tissues like that, too. Except maybe the tissues can change colors based on how much snot they've absorbed. Like, they're normal white and maybe they turn yellow and that's regular. But if they turn green, you're maxing out the tissue. And if they turn red, you're probably hemorrhaging and should see a doctor. THIS IS A BRILLIANT IDEA. Because then I could figure out how much snot my body is producing because I'm blowing my nose all the time.
In other news, I started my period too. *stabs ovaries*
Hello. I'm sorry for the TMI. I'll go lay down now or something.
So, here. Have a poll.
