      rachyrock Goddess of Noms

      Two years ago, the day before my birthday was a Sunday. It was during my first trip to Austin, during my first out-of-state convention, it was the last day of RTX 2015, and it was the day that this picture was taken. It was also the day that I had a chat with one of the brightest, happiest, most effervescent humans I've ever met, and we decided an ocean wasn't big enough or scary enough to stand between us. Happy 2nd anniversary, @topham! I hope for many, many more. I love you. 2764.png

      hey so just to let u know i was your community secret santa :)

      Ahh, sweet! Thank you for speaking up  bruce


      I love the gifts, you did a wonderful job picking them out for me! I can't wait to break into the playing cards, and I need to go find another poster frame now for the one you sent   elyse

    • Stuff!

      10 months ago

      rachyrock Goddess of Noms

      It's occurred to me that while I read all of the journals on my dashboard, I hardly ever post anything here. I'd like to think that @topham helps me make up for that. The same could be said of any of my social media accounts (FB, twitter, tumblr, etc.). I enjoy reading about what's going on in everyone's lives...and I guess I don't feel like I've got anything worth sharing? Who knows.


      So, in lieu of some long, drawn-out journal, and in no particular order, here's some stuff that's entered my life recently:


      • A new set of dice in this amazing color...

      27267_chx.jpg

      (note: not actually my set, this just shows the color best)


      • ...and this beauty...

      new_galaxy_edition_new_nintendo_3dx_xl_3


      • ...and this game...

      sapphirebox.jpg


      • ...and this (preordered) game...

      moonbox.jpg


      • ...and some crazy red lipstick too, because reasons. You were expecting blue lipstick, weren't you?

      And now this is my wallet:

    • It's been...

      1 year ago

      rachyrock Goddess of Noms

      An entire year since the wonderful night at Buffalo Billiards at RTX 2015, and some lovely people shared some photos from that night, and they make me happy, so take a look at the pure joy on our faces:

      It's also been an entire year of having the completely amazing & wonderful @topham in my life. He's my actual favorite, and is just a pretty incredible person.


      also, because I couldn't resist, and the title was inspired by the very first line...click play, please:


      be good, love you all.

    • Super Serious lunchtime discussions

      1 year ago

      rachyrock Goddess of Noms

      Over my lunch break today, @topham & I had a serious discussion...about which people from the RT staff we would cast in a remake of the hit film The Princess Bride. Below are our results...


      Buttercup - Mariel

      Westley - Jon Risinger

      Fezzik - Adam Ellis

      Inigo Montoya - Tyler Coe

      Vizzini - Geoff

      Miracle Max - Joel Heyman

      Valerie - Elyse

      Humperdinck - Ryan

      Humperdink's Parents - Burnie and Ashley

      Albino - Brandon Farmahini

      Count Rugen - Joel Ruben

      The Bishop - Josh Flanagan

      Sick kid - Millie

      Narrator - Griffon

      Old Boo-ing lady - Lindsay

      Gate Key Guy - Chris Demarais


      What are your thoughts? Who would you cast differently for these roles?

    • So, uh, my sponsorship didn't auto-renew...

      1 year ago

      rachyrock Goddess of Noms

      So I'll be slumming it for a while in no-star land until RT responds to the email I sent to their sponsortrouble account. I just want to watch the new content! And I want my star back! And I promise the next journal I post (whenever that may be) will be a more positive one - hopefully.


      PS - 17 days to RTX, 12 days until my Brit arrives! Eep!

    • Today's been a weird day...

      1 year ago

      rachyrock Goddess of Noms

      So, today's been a weird mix of ups & downs, but definitely more ups. Just...odd...in general.


      So, let's start from the top, shall we?


      + Weather is wonderful, typical spring weather for GA. Low 50s in the morning, will hit low 80s at the hottest part of the day.

      - Difficult to dress for such a temperature swing.

      - Try on 3 different outfits before settling on one to wear to work today.

      - As a result of my wardrobe indecision, I was about 10 minutes late to work.

      + Jammed to good music in the car on the way to work.

      + Luckily, office manager understands and is fine with it.

      - Get in to work, no water in my office building. Busted pipe needed repairing, so didn't have water until about 11 AM.

      - Had to go down to the other building (it's a separate building, but right next to mine) to use the bathroom because of aforementioned water issues.

      ~ Send update email to bosses re: press releases I sent out being turned into stories.

      - One of the outlets I sent the press release to still hasn't responded, which is odd...since it's the local paper.

      ++ The national industry publications both picked it up, though!

      ++ Get positive feedback from both bosses.

      + Lunch time! More good music in the car, with the windows down.

      + Go to local burrito place to get lunch.

      - 15 minute wait to pay for food.

      +++ Go to pay, they've undercharged me (due to the wait, I assume?) & filled in the rest of my punchcard (3 bonus punches!) so the next time I visit, I get a free burrito.

      + Free burritos are the best.

      +++ Next time I go there for a burrito will probably be when Topham's down for a visit =D

      - Have only 20 minutes to eat said burrito & chat with the aforementioned Brit.

      ~ Take car to finally get the busted passenger-side mirror replaced.

      - Called dealership yesterday, they never ordered the part when I requested this repair over a month ago.

      + Mirror now in stock.

      ~ Got a shuttle ride from the dealership back to work.

      + Just got a call that my car's mirror is replaced and the car is ready for pickup.

      ~ Need to call the shuttle guy to come back & get me.

      - Will need to pay for said mirror replacement.


      Like I said, weird day. But I feel great! So the rest is whatever.

      You!


      Hi!


      Hello!


      Have a warm fuzzy from me!


      It should go nicely along with the flowers and chocolates! I'm a little sad that my card has not made it to you yet.


      You are the most excellent of people to me, and I adore you for that.


      I feel so lucky to have you around!


      And, I don't want to tread on ground I've covered in more private conversations!


      Have a wonderful day!

      i hope you have an awesome week this week, I would just like to let you know that it bugs me how crazy good you are at making me hungry, especially when i would just finish eating! lol and that is why you are awesome and the queen of noms. Seriously though, it is really fun hanging out in the shimmy sham chat for that reason, you add another element of fun into the whole mess that is the shimm sham chat lol

        well, that makes sense then. Biscuits are my #2 favorite breakfast food but can easily be #1 if done right lol, I am quite jealous that you can just whip out something amazing whenever you want to, i'm only really good at breakfast food and grilling, other than that, i can't do a whole lot besides simple stuff smiley4.gif

        Well...I'm a native Southerner, so my love of food is inherent & lifelong. Also, my mom can cook all sorts of fantastic deliciousness, so I learned from the best. I mastered making perfect biscuits first, then graduated from there...

        2 years ago

        hahaha, people who don't like food are lame.And i will definitely be there! Did you always have a huge love for food or did you just decide to make something one day and it was one of those experiences that made you fall in love with food?

        Joseph - thank you so much for your kind words! My super power is not one that I take lightly, so I try to be a fair & just queen, but sometimes the line is crossed. Also, I just really like food and could talk about it for hours. I enjoy catching up in the chat, and I look forward to adding my own bit of crazy to the ShimmySham chat circus soon! Hope you'll be there.

        The part I always struggle with is making initial contact - I'm not naturally inclined to reach out. After the first few interactions, I'm fine, it's just those first few that always make me hesitant. Ah, the joys of introversion! smiley4.gif
