What I recommend from '10, Part 1 (TV edition/Movie edition)

Was it a great year? Not really. But it did get progressively better in August when I landed my teaching gig. Thanks to that, I might finally be taking my geek trip to Boston and Princeton. (Gee, why those two places? I do WONDER.)

Anyway, here's what I was interested in this year. I am putting stuff behind a cut because it's probably pic/video filled, but I do guarantee some of it will be entertaining. At least in relation to my icon. *points*

The Trip So Far...

+Drove to Santa Rosa, New Mexico on Monday night. Stayed in the worst Motel 6 ever. Didn't sleep, at all.

+My sister and I switched out on driving Tuesday. I took over again at Albuquerque and drove to the Arizona border. Woo! New state that I had never visited. Upon driving into it, wasn't so impressed. Looks about as ugly, scenery wise, as Texas.

+So Flagstaff, Arizona was pretty cool. I mean, there were some mountains and pine trees. More my type of landscape. We stayed Tuesday night in Williams, Arizona which reminded me a lot of Ruidoso, New Mexico.

+Someone thought it would be cool to go to the Grand Canyon. (I'm not taking blame for that one...) I wasn't all that in to it really, tbh.  I mean, it was pretty but I lost interest fast. Plus there were two dogs with us so..arg. Never take dogs on a car ride.

+I had a mini heart attack when I saw that we were 300 miles from Los Angeles at one point in our trip. I thought about Paley Fest and Lisa Edelstein and Hugh Laurie and then cursed my luck for going into the wrong damn state.

+Vegas wasn't what I thought nor imagined. (Wow, this really sounds like I am bitching about the whole thing) We didn't get to go down the strip though because we were still 8 hours from where we were supposed to be going. The Hoover Dam was also anticlimatic because it was tore the fuck up. I wanted Megatron to storm out of there like on the movie. Instead, I just settled for an ice cream Snickers and a few photos.

+After Vegas, there is NOTHING. Well, essentially nothing. I was getting car dementia/caged animal syndrome about an hour after we left Vegas.

+I still haven't been into downtown Reno. My sister is living on a outskirt called Sparks. We spent the entire day moving her massive amount of shit and her doing her decorating tangent. I sat around and plugged in the Sex in the City movie, which is a couple of hours I will never get back of my life. I really didn't know what to do while she was arranging things how she wanted it. Isn't my house. Doubt I will be here but maybe once a year, if that. I kind of want to punch her in the uterus for moving this far away. She is really the only person I hang out with/talk to. Her role in my life doubles as sister/best friend. I almost cried today while sitting on her couch. 1500 miles sucks! But meh, whatever. Her husband is from here, so if this will make her happy, then I will be happy for her. I just hope she eventually comes back to Texas.

+Other than that, I am pretty sure I may be stuck here for a while. The people in charge of getting my plane ticket have not done so yet. I mean, I don't want to leave my sister. But on the other hand, I just want to go and sleep in my bed for a week. Hopefully tomorrow will just be a day of chill. Saturday, they all want to go to Lake Tahoe. And then someone mentioned San Fransisco some time later. I am seriously wacked out from lack of sleep and two hour time change. (Lame of me, I know)

I just laughed for about 5 straight minutes on this...

Golden Girls fanfiction on

Here is a summary for the story:

When Blanche is caught jerking off rose joins & dicided to pleaser herself also... and gets more freaky

Not only could I not get past the "jerking off" line, it got worse when when I saw the bad spelling. I think I peed myself a little. Or I might have been Lizzing a bit.


OMFG, my three favorite people all in a picture together. Credit goes to anascully, I think. Regardless, it isn't my picture and I am not trying to take credit for it. I just thought it was too freaking awesome not to post. I about had a heart attack when I saw it.

<3 <3 <3

GOD, I love House and Bones so hard.


(no subject)

So...I am standing out in the middle of some fucking field, updating my journal via phone. It is freezing! Seriously, I live in Texas. It is supposed to be warm. And the line to the door for Disturbed is sooo long. I guess I am used to going to things in Abilene and being front and center. I am missing Bones :( Anyway, that is all for now. My fingers are too numb to type out much more on this shitty phone.

EDIT: Okay, so after getting back home at 3 and waking up at 10, I still am mad about last night. 40 dollars for tickets and what, 12 out of 13 members of the three bands are too damn good to come out and sign autographs? Long story short: Disturbed, Sevendust, and most of Skindred suck. Except for the lead singer of Skindred who was such a sweetheart and signed my cd booklet and thanked me for coming to the show. He was so nice.

I don't know. I just hate it when people are divas and think they are too good to spread the love back to their fans. I will say that I have met some really cool people though, like most of Nonpoint and Ill Nino, (plus the Skindred guy) When bands come out and shake hands and snap photos, it makes me feel good about buying their albums. From now on, Disturbed and Sevendust get torrented.

I have a birthday coming up...

No, seriously. I do. It is just almost two months away. But nobody likes a math geek.

Anyway, I was watching Entertainment Tonight (For pure shits and giggles because let's be real: That show is a joke) LOW AND BEHOLD, WHAT DO I SEE?

I am by no means a photoshop wizard. In fact, the times I tried to make icons, I sucked it up bad. Long story short, would some kind soul make me an icon using that picture? I just want the colors sort of played with and no writing. I would love you forever.

Also, thanks to jukebox_grad for the screen cap.

Just a side note: Never become a teacher. It is way too expensive. 120 dollars for a pedagogy test and 77 dollars to get my teaching certificate. Add in another 145 for my college diploma, 15 for fingerprinting, and who knows how much for my content area test. This is ridiculous.

I am getting a House t-shirt to help support NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Health) My connections to mental health issues are pretty strong and this is one thing I really want to help support. (Except I am getting a guy's T. I don't like the way they do the baby-doll cut on womens. /gag)

My mom is bi-polar and I just think there have been wonderful leaps and bounds in getting people educated on what it is all about. She is embarrassed by it and worries that people with think she is "manic" all the time. I guess I don't understand because I don't personally have it. But I just want her to know I support her and everyone else that has it.
