“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss


In other non-news, my COMPLETE OBSESSION with Suikoden V continues unabated. My roomates are disappointed in me, they didn't think I was that kind of geek. (But it's not like I was hiding it? These days I am pretty upfront about my geekitude. It's really hard to explain the ...

I’m a gamer, sort-of.

I'm in Massachussettes! In 's dorm room, specifically. She brought me to her roleplaying club's annual convention, where I learned how to make character sheets and roll dice and also that I... really like pen-and-paper roleplaying. (SHOCK! You're all surprised, I can tell. -_-; the real ...

another pointless update

THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SUMMER: May: Five Fists of Science. Twain and Tesla: they fight crime! June: Suikoden I and II for PSP. Huzzah portable ports! (I don't know the real release date for this, if it gets a US release at all.) July: Tales from Earthsea movie. ...


Saw Underworld: Evolution with the gang on Friday. It was awful. F complained that the porn scene was gratuitous, but I loved it because for those five or however many minutes no one's heart was ripped out. Not a single lung was pierced! Blood did not ...

I turned in my master's thesis. It's kinda weak - I wrote the conclusion in 24 hours including searching for supporting references - but it's a personal milestone for me since it's the longest thing I have ever finished, more-or-less on time. It's 50 pages without references or appendixes (but ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...

6-years-too-late review of disposable teen comedy, John Tucker Must Die

Saw this with M. It's really not too bad... if you ignore the ending, aha. Especially the casting for John Tucker is good: at first you are like, what do any of these girls see in this guy? But by the end you are like, hmm, ...
