SD Alternative

“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

Montreal, Links

Trip-blogging behind cut: Montreal was fun. We got in around 2pm, picked Alex up from his appartment (worlds cleaner than it was last time), then drove down to Atwater for lunch/to fill the time. Atwater is like a smaller Reading Terminal Market, and thank God for that, because ...

One last spam post

I plead sleep debt, your honor. (I can't stay up to watch the Daily Show or the Colbert Report anymore! *sob*) Reborn: posted about the many many many faults of Katekyou Hitman Reborn!, and why she was entertained by it anyway. A few weeks ago made a ...

My brother

We were talking Pokémon talk over IM and somehow Care Bears came up, so naturally (?) I linked him to See My Vest by mollyscribbles, who posted to little_details a few days ago asking: Approximately how many adult Care Bears would you need to skin to turn their pelts into ...

Yuletide Recs

I want to recommend Chrissie's yuletide story but I'm not sure she's prepared to have her name associated with it. XD Here are a few others instead: Everything Changes (Except Oz). L Frank Baum's Oz series. The other one written this year is actually probably objectively better, but ...

My 2012 In Review

Big Bang @ Prudential Center, 12/9/12

As promised on tumblr. This is very long, so I apologize in advance. ^^ BTW, I'm sitting in a cafe in New Brunswick next to someone using "Fantastic Baby" as a ringtone, and it turns out she was also at the show on Friday. Small world! The New York ...

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, ...
