Yesterday a friend and I were talking about how much we'd love to see a ComicCon episode of The Big Bang Theory, complete with a road trip, costumes and Penny being dragged along for the ride. We started discussing what costumes we'd like to see everyone in, and it led to this little bit of insanity on my part.

I obviously have too much time on my hands and too many fandoms in my brain. Also, Photoshop is the devil.

SO SAY WE ALL.Collapse )

You know, one of the nice things about getting older is that I really care less and less what people think of me. However, there are a few things that even I'm embarrassed to admit that I like, regardless of how comfortable I am with my geekiness.

May I present to you my list of shame:



Oh God, John Mayer is SUCH a douche. I mean, the man dated Jessica Simpson. He ran around in public in a Borat mankini. He plans little stunts with the paparazzi that I find immature and repulsive.

So why do I still find myself so insanely attracted to him? (Hint: see photo above.)

I started listening to John Mayer back in 2001-ish, back when he was just a cute singer-songwriter that everyone liked. As time went by, however, I found myself having to defend him to people who just thought he was a giant dick. I'd claim that he was actually really smart and funny and his music was really good. As his love affair with the media grew and flourished, though, I got seriously annoyed with his stupid publicity stunts and man-whore ways. I mean, how can someone who writes such lovely, introspective songs and sings those songs so sincerely be such a complete asshat? Is it even possible? I don't understand how they're even the same person.

Anyway, I feel like his (admittedly hilarious) Twitter account is helping to turn the tide of public opinion back in his favor, but I'm still embarrassed to admit that I like the guy. COME ON, JOHN, DON'T MAKE ME BE ASHAMED TO BE SEEN WITH YOU WHEN WE START DATING.

More mortification aheadCollapse )

Boo.  






I got home tonight and thought, "Yay, Mad Men is on!" and I was like this:





Then I realized that the season is OVER and I was like this:





And then my roommate suggested that we watch The Girls Next Door instead and I was like this:



The End.

I mentioned Questionable Content in my last post - it really is funny. I especially love Dora getting hit on by the furry in the background in this one.

Sorry it's kinda small - if you want to see the full-size original, you can go here.

I'm obsessed with "Lungs" by Florence and the Machine. Seriously, it's a fantastic album - great lyrics, beautiful production, and her voice is amazing. I highly recommend, especially "Drumming Song" and "Cosmic Love" - they're pretty epic.

Speaking of music, I'm also loving Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" - both the song and the video. (Seriously, have you seen the video? It's insane. Although all I can think about when I see those crazy Alexander McQueen shoes is that they remind me of the hands of Him from the Powerpuff Girls.) I wasn't sold on the song the first couple times I heard it, but it's been stuck in my head pretty much all week and now I'm hooked. 

One of my LJ communities recently posted a link to a webcomic called Questionable Content. I ended up spending three days reading the comic from the beginning and now I'm hooked. A comic about sassy twenty-something hipsters and their lives of love, music, drinking and robots? What's not to love?

I loved ONTD's recent post about YA fiction; I picked up some great recommendations and will be adding some of the books to my Christmas list. Yay books!

CHRISTMAS. WHERE DID YOU COME FROM? I'm not ready! I'm already starting to stress about presents and shopping and whatnot. Plus I'm low on cash this year, which means I'll have to be more inventive when coming up with gift ideas.

Have you seen The Oatmeal? Hilarious site. I read the pterodactyl one this morning and lol'ed irl. BEAR-O-DACTYL.

Maybe he's born with it.

I don't understand what I (on the left) was supposed to be for Halloween 1986. I'm wearing a Little House on the Prairie dress with a cheap cardboard and glitter crown, a wand, and hooker makeup. Princess Prostitute, perhaps? My little sister (right) looks like she has a bad case of rosacea, but I think that was just our mom's attempt to make her look rosy-cheeked and wholesome.

I would also like to add that my older sister (middle) BEGGED for that Wonder Woman costume for weeks. She put in on, we took this picture and then she looked at herself in the mirror. The mask scared her so badly that she started screaming and refused to wear it for the rest of the night.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! This story from the AP cracked me up:

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Iowa City police are investigating an early morning assault in which a man accused another of being a zombie, then punched him twice. Police said the assault occurred at 1:17 a.m. Sunday at an Iowa City restaurant south of the University of Iowa campus.

A man was ordering food when he was approached by another man who called him a zombie, then hit him in the eye. When the victim tried to call police on his cell phone, the man punched him again, breaking his nose.

The man then ran out a back door.

The victim was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

In my opinion, the accuser was either nutso or a drunk-ass college student who'd seen Shaun of the Dead one too many times. Either way, HILARIOUS.
