I'm really bored. Anybody out there wanna go drink coffee at IHOP?
I must be desperate :P
I'm not cool enough to go be drunk and slutty in Florida or Mexico, or whatever. Just going to get alot of extra sleep and probably lay around the house doing nothing, just because I can. Anyone actually got decent plans?
I have too many tests this week.
Did anyone go to the NIN concert Thursday night? I went and really enjoyed it. This is actually my first time seeing them. I haven't gone to many good concerts. Don't be afraid to post if you hear of a show coming around soon that you think everyone might like. And I'm going to plea here as well....If anyone has Rob Zombie tickets they want to get rid, talk to me!
So here's my not-autobiography.
I qualify as a geek.
I'm absolutely obsessive with Serenity and Firefly, and to a more primal degree, Star Trek.
Serenity and Firefly are fairly newish obessions, though I must say that Firefly in my mind is quite a bit better in quality than Star Trek. I went to the Serenity prescreening in June, I stood up and I sang the Firefly theme song, the Jaynestown song, I tried to dress like River, and when I told the audience that my online username from the Serenity.com forums was 'VeryVeryCrowded', about 6-7 people stood up, turned around, and went 'That's you?' I'm currently helping plan a 'Shindig' that, if you're a Browncoat like me, you may hear about in the coming months (at least from whedonesque.com).
Joss is Boss.
Star Trek is like my childhood obsession. If I can't tell you the end of a TNG episode by the first 5 seconds, it's because it's either 1st or 2nd season or for some reason Fox never showed it much. (I don't know, but recently I've been watching the Not-Tasha-Yar plot arc because I hardly remember it, and I'm thinking Fox didn't like to show it because it entailed playing episodes in an exact order)
I play Pern RPG MUSHes, online. Not MMORPGs, and not tabletop (I've actually never donea tabletop RPG, but I'm extremely interested because I think it'd be a lot of fun, actually interacting with REAL PEOPLE who are as geeky as me.)
I love the Vorkosigan series, and I know way too much about Discworld. I also like 8-bit Theater, Sluggy, Homestarrunner, MegaTokyo, and to a more geeky extent than most of the world (read the Sil, Unfinished Tales, have the maps, read the books multiple times), Lord of the Rings. I'm an honors student. And... I think that's all I'll say for now.
Anyway, am I the only one that spends entirely too much time at IHOP?
Also, It would be cool if everybody would kind of reply to this and introduce yourselves. I figure if this is going to be a community, I want to actually get to know the people in it. Don't write an f-ing autobiography, just give me a little bit of background on who you are, what you do, and why you're here. Don't forget to include why you qualify as a freaky, geeky weirdo type.
Muchos gracias, amigos!
woot! love this community...
I'm screwing with the colors and layout and shit. Lemme know what y'all think.
Also, being that Muncie Gras happens Saturday, let's call this the "Let's all talk shit about Muncie Gras" thread. Any opinions or anecdotes on the subject are quite welcome.
This is like, kind of neat. I guess it's time for some marketing strategy or something.
