Word on the internets is, there's going to be a BIPLANE in the toyline for the Transformers 2 movie.

Sadly, the blurry pic kind of looks like its robot mode is terrible, but still. Biplane!!

It's the toy I've been waiting for my whole life!

Knee story:

My x-rays last week were inconclusive; they wanted to send me for an MRI which I just can't afford. So they sent me away with some monstrously huge pain pills, to heal normally as best I can. If it heals, it was a bone bruise. If it stays wonky, I've severely damaged myself forever, I guess.

The good news is that I can walk properly again, almost. Although I still can't straighten it completely or bend it at more than a right angle, stairs are still a problem, and by lightly brushing my fingers over it I can make my whole body twitch. So, I'm hoping bone bruise.

Eagle vs. Truck Spoiler alert! The eagle won!

I'm 80% certain my left kneecap is fractured. There's nothing I can really do about it but rant, ,whine, and otherwise throw a tantrum, so I'm going to do this as much as possible.

1. I really like being drunk! I've missed it in the past year or so. It makes me feel like a real human being!

2. So guys how about that Oglala aquifer?! Think we're going to get a new Dust Bowl of the 2000s? Since I pretty much hate life in general, I'm really excited for America's nonsustainable agriculture to get blown away on the prarie winds!

3. Speaking of the Revenge of the Great Depression, anyone with a credit card and a paypal account want to arrange something where I get Decemberists tickets and pay you via paypal? <3 <3 <3

Also, I have to LOL at people who are like, OMG RECESSION WRYYYY DID NOBODY SEE THIS COMING because I, as a half-educated history dork, saw this coming since like 1997. HEY GUYS LETS REPEAT THE 1920S BECAUSE THAT ENDED WELL RIGHT?! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

Odd dream, iTunes rage, etc. [Feb. 13th, 2009|03:51 am]

I just woke up from a 'nap', and by that I mean I got home at 7pm, passed the hell out, and just woke up. The dream was one of those disturbingly realistic ones- everything was just like normal life, except for the following:

-My online account for Spore actually worked, and I had patience to play a civilization into the space age.

-Transformers 2 was out already, and had sent me into fits of nerd rage for the same reason the first one did- because they'd used iconic buildings as stand-ins for cities that the buildings weren't in. I think the 6th Harry Potter movie was also out, which would set this dream in the near future?

-I went to church. To like, worship God. O_o I did not burst into flame upon entering. Apparently it was also a church in 1952 or something, because the men were in grey flannel suits and the women had gloves and adorable pastel hats. I think this was probably an anxiety dream over the quality of my millinery.

Other than those three things, it was pretty much a dream in which I went about my daily life, playing MMOs and arguing on the internet about abandoned buildings and/or giant robots.

Daily life, for real this time:
OMFG The Decemberists are playing here this spring!!!! Tickets go on sale tomorrow, so I will be heading down to the box office as soon as I remember if they're playing the Pabst or the Riverside.

I canceled my World of Warcraft account because I don't have the time or high-speed connection to play at the level to which I'd become accustomed, and it was too annoying to see other rogues on the server being better than me. Although since the expansion came out I was barely doing more than logging on to chat with friends, it still feels a bit as if I've amputated a limb. Now I'll have to find a whole new way to not have a life.

iTunes sucks, and a good deal of that suck is because it's impossible to use it at the beginning of a sentence without my grammar twitching. Also because it's managed to organize my music into a system that's so orderly I really can't argue with it, while simultaneously making it so I can't find anything. The iTunes store is also tweaking my completionistic tendencies, so it's a rather good thing I don't have any money to spend there.

Axis Powers Hetalia. What is this nonsense? Why am I so utterly amused by such a ridiculously inane take on history & politics? It would be a perfect example of the Theory of Anime Ruins Everything... except that I can't help but find it hilarious. :(

Haven't slept in 3 days, but then I haven't posted in months, so whatever. What brings me back to Livejournal? Well, I have no internet at home anymore, so this "online" thing is new and exciting again! I feel like I should be hanging out after class and RPing Star Wars on message boards like it's 1997 (Now let's all move to Seattle and use slow modems!).

School/Work is usually 11 hours a day, and I'm pretty okay with that since it's not 7 days a week this semester. I'm half-tempted to find a weekend job, just because I'm not used to having free time anymore.

I got an ipod and it's freaking my shit out. I'm not exactly sure why, but I think it's the way it devours music. You put in a CD, iTunes slurps it up, then about a minute later you remove your now-irrelevant coaster. There's that intensely eerie feeling of being booted forward in time that comes with any drastic change in technology, and also the feeling that I'm carrying a voracious monster in my pocket. The music that filled up almost 1/2 the hard drive of my last computer, fills up a little more than 1/10 of this beast. I'm a little afraid to touch it, I think it might swallow my hand. In a fit of pique last week, I named it Stupid Flanders, and now I can't seem to rename it without resetting everything.

Oh, and I'm divorced now! My new apartment pleases me greatly, it seems like an ideal place for nerdly gatherings.

Delicious Violence! [Dec. 14th, 2008|08:57 pm]

Life is horribly bleak and depressing, but that's nothing new really. My final projects are finished and awesome, so my epic fantasticness is sort of like a bright spot in the gloom, I guess.

I was at the grocery store today and there was a lobster fight! A huge lobster with red rubber bands was being bullied by a smaller lobster with white rubber bands. Their fight had them swimming all over the tank, using their tails to move quickly and using their horrible little legs to push against the glass and against other lobsters.

The rest of the tank was sitting quietly and looking in the other direction. It was like when you're on the bus or train and there's a fight on the other end of the car, so you try not to pay attention because you don't have time to make a statement to the police. Or like a holiday dinner where everyone's trying to pretend that cousin Jimmy isn't drunk and arguing with the christmas tree.

The red-banded lobster was a rogue, he kept outflanking the other one and going for the backstab. I think the white-banded lobster was a paladin. He raised his claws like he was trying to cast a heal. If they hadn't had rubber bands it would have been an ugly duel.

Watching the lobsters move around, instead of awaiting their delicious doom with their normal stately dignity, reminded me that they are closely related to scorpions. If they lived on land we would kill them with poison instead of eating them with butter. What would you do if your home was infested with pinchy, leggy vermin? Burn down the house IMO.
