SDCC and other current things

With all the cool news I’m finally hearing/seeing from SCDD12, I am totally jelly. I need to go there. Between that and my lack of attendance at Gen-Con, my nerd cred is in danger…

I’m currently watching The Nerdist on BBCA and this one guy just described the test footage from the up-coming Ant Man, and I want to see this now. I’ve never been a fan of Ant Man, much less in the recent The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. But with the whole running down the gun to beat up the guy, that sounds awesome!

All right. We can now turn to my shame. I have read the 50 Shades trilogy. Sort of. I read the first two as the original Twilight fan fiction they were, the third I read as published (because the fan fic pdf I found was too hard to follow; I wasn’t willing to put that much work into it). Admission made, I have this to say: I’ve read smuttier fanfics elsewhere on the internet. AND!!! Oh, let’s not forget the “and”… I’ve figured out why this is so popular! It feeds the stereotypical woman need to “fix her man.” Let’s just say it’s a stereotype for a reason, shall we? When you have someone that f’d up, sex + marriage + baby doesn’t fix them. Basic psychology there. Mommy-porn indeed…

Last, but very much not least, because I still feel very bad about it… in celebration of Caturday, my kitties got pedicures today and boy did I mess that up. I’ve never cut a nail as short as I did today on my baby girl. Devi was so upset and it wouldn’t stop bleeding! It finally did stop, but I still feel bad! So, as consolation, here’s a picture of my baby girl:

Mood: Feeling a little guilty for my cat’s pain

Tickled pink

This just tickled me pink. I was looking to see if any of the search engines had caches of my blog posts (I did get a couple, but that’s not the point). I found this link:

Why are earthquakes hard to predict? on Yahoo Answers.

One of the two references is a paper I wrote in college in 1998. But that means someone read it!

Music: Cherie – Betcha Never
Mood: Amused to the point brink of insanity

Well, that’ll learn me…

Today, I vow to become better at blog backups. Lost the whole thing. Oh well. Most of it was me complaining anyway. Starting over will be better.

Today, I also got my laptop set up as a media server for my PS3, so I’m rocking out right now. Very cool. Once we get the desktop rebuilt and Win7 installed on it, ALL of our music will be available through our network and our stereo will be worth it’s weight in gold finally. Nevermind that it took us this long to get the PS3 running through the stereo receiver.

Music: The Glitch Mob – Beyond Monday
Mood: Not sure if pissed or just tired
