Writer's Block: Desert Island Time

You're packing your bag for that magical desert island that happens to have electricity, a TV, and a DVD player—what five DVDs do you take with you?

Why the crap would I be watching movies if I was on an island? I'd be enjoying the sea.

Pseudo-Twitter Post

I have an account, but never use it, as I have enough to keep up with and distracted by online. Here's what been up with me lately, as I haven't posted here for a while.

• The iPhone is about a cajillion times cooler than I ever imagined it could be. Tony hearts his too, and we have spent nearly every morning this week showing off new applications while in bed. No, Dave, that isn't code for anything. We're just dorks. Also, despite all of the awesome applications, I love Scrabble the most, ATM. No math! Wee!

• I'm still a little sick, and have a lovely cough that has lasted sporadically for weeks. Other than that, I finally have a grasp on this semester, and need to start working on my new Motion Graphics course - which starts before the curriculum is even due for it. No pressure, right? Also, tons of other teachers want to take it, so maybe I'll have to curb my whole hoodie and sneakers combo that I seem to where everyday. Or not.

• Though I'm not looking forward to this evening snow storm, Tony and I are still going to see Clutch tonight. Our love for them is greater than six inches of accumulation.

• Spring break falls on my birthday this year, which is rad and sad, as my dead husband will be away with his band at SxSW. I'm going to stay home and tend the homestead, get tattooed, drunk, and play video games as much as possible. I'll, um, draw or do something productive too. Maybe.

• Despite staying stationary then, I'm going on more trips than usual this year. School paid for visit to a new motion graphics festival in New York in April. I'll have to make it to Portland in the summer to see old friends - as I was too sick to go when previously planned - and I have plans to go to both Bonnaroo and Sasquatch music festivals this year. NIN headlines both, but I really love those multiple day events, and look forward to the splendid people watching they provide. Oh, and the other bands, too.

Other than that, business as usual. My sister is doing far better than ever before, which is a massive burden lifted. I've also, finally, started working out a bit again - which makes me feel infinitely better every time. Lots of housework too, as I want to make the basement into a workshop of sorts until all the little spiders and such hatch.

I hope that all ya'll are doing well. This post turned out far beefier than expected, but oh well. Sorry for taking up precious scroll space!

They Had Me at "Lifetime Learner"

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test

Outcast Genius

65 % Nerd, 70% Geek, 57% Dork

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Dammit, Katie! They stole our test idea!

Just FYI

Life is fucking awesome. Enjoy it, please.


No Joke

This, in all seriousness, what I think I want for X-Mas.

Also, the commercial reminds me of the ones during saturday morning cartoons that I loved as a kid.

I Has a Status

I think that makes it official, right? Heh. I am ridiculously sleepy and happy. And married.

And FYI, I was prompted to update this by a former graduate and attendee through an e-mail.
