      I have been dormant. But on this day, I am resurrected. I wonder if anyone I once knew is still alive, much less still follows me accidentally. In any case, Merry Christmas to them, if they're out there! It's time to get pissed drunk and watch Die Hard. 


      Kisses!

    • Christmas Looks Great From Up Here

      6 years ago

      CountCaboose

      Here are the conditions upon which I agreed to visit my Family in Australia:

      1) I don't want to skip Christmas, so the 24th is out.
      2) I don't want more than one connection, please
      3) No early-morning flights.

      My family, being fantastic listeners, agreed to all demands and bought me a ticket for the 26th with only one connection, departing late afternoon.

      HA HA! No, what really happened was they bought me a ticket for 7:00 AM on the 24th with three connections. I am literally missing Christmas. This means I had to move my usual traditions of getting drunk and watching 'Die Hard' up a day, along with the tradition of posting a brief journal on RvB.

      We lead a spartan life :(

      I was going to sponsor myself again so I could use colours and emoticons, but I've spent all my money in the airport, primarily on shoddy headphones and thousands of dollars worth of chips.

      Also, hello again!

      Walking with Dinosaurs.
      I always thought I was the only person obsessed, but after attending the Live Tour, I have learned otherwise [Of course, I never actually believed this. I knew at least one other person who loved dinosaurs].
      It was like Jurassic Park, only everyone lives at the end! Go see it.

      Here is a crude illustration of me being obnoxious at the show:

      *TOOOOOOOT*


      I just failed a project worth 50% of my final grade, a test worth 30% of my final grade, and another project worth 70% of my final grade. And THAT was just for one class. My overall score for all seven classes is -1000%! MINUS A THOUSAND PERCENT! That means I would have to repeat this course TEN times and pass perfectly just to get a ZERO!

      I recently received the four RT comic books, compliments of Geoff.
      They are hilarious, and the RT staff is absolutely marvelous, but that's not the reason I mention them. I simply don't want people to think that I function beyond the Autonomic Nervous System: I got the RT comic books, which prompted me to write a journal. In that sense, I am very much like a zombie, or those Farside amoeba.
      protists.png

      Whatever constituency I had is gone, so I can now write as carelessly as I like. Some may say "Haven't you been doing that all along?", to which I reply with the finger.
      I'd like to say a few words about my life for the past few months:
      And that's all I have to say about that.

      Just to give you an idea of how sporadically populated Australia is, My family was driving to [insert ridiculous name of town here, like "Woolamaloo"] from Sydney. We passed a sign which had only this written on it:


      Next city: Melbourne 1009 Kilometers

      Australia, Ladies & gentlemen. You know when you're driving on a highway in the states, there will always
      be a rest-stop located every 5 miles, open no matter the time of night? Well, we drove for about two and a half hours, and there was nothing, unless you count this massive concrete monument which had the sign "Rest stop" on it, which you shouldn't. I think it was the Australian version of a joke.
      There was another stop that said "Lookout" on it, but we couldn't tell if this was a warning or a tourist attraction, as the stop was actually a sheer drop off a cliff.
      The road had a number of inappropriate signs. For instance: STOP REVIVE SURVIVE, around which several '58 Edsel Bermudas were always clustered, complete with family of skeletons.
      Seriously, if you run out of gas outside one of the four major cities in Australia, you're dead. Of course, you're also dead if you run out of gas within the major cities, probably due to a spider or Blue-ringed Octopus bite. Did you know those things can survive long periods on land?
      There were also signs featuring crudely-drawn pictures of deer. "Ha ha!", I scoffed," There are no deer in Australia!", to which my father responded with a muffled WHUMP! sound as the car swerved very quickly into the natural forest barriers on the side of the road in an effort to avoid hitting a massive stag who had been doing what deer do best.
      Apparently there are deer in Australia, though "God only knows" how they got here. The Australians certainly don't.
      The place we were going played host to a number of peacocks, which was also pretty weird. They can fly, because they were roosting in the trees when we got there. That, or the managers had nailed them to their perches. Also, you have never been crapped on unless you've been crapped on by a peacock. It's like getting a watermelon dropped on you from the Empire State Building,only it smells worse and is nearly impossible to get out no matter how many cycles you put it through.

      This just in from Thijsbos: Australia.

      On an entirely different subject, 'Rome:Total War'. I can't believe I wasted my entire life playing 'Civilization' and 'Age of Empires' when I could've been playing a game that combines the best elements of both. However, as is the case with nearly everything, I suck at it.
      The game is very educational. For instance, I now know never to charge a phalanx head-on no matter how much I may outnumber my enemies. The next time I encounter a phalanx in real life, I shall be sure to flank it.
      I have also [on several occasions] managed to lose an army more than three times the size of my opponents' by allowing them to get surrounded and destroyed my largest army with its own siege equipment.
      Tactical idiot though I may be, I'd like to reassure you all that my primary failings are in the real world.

      For instance, my IT course. I had to write a program in which I bred a colony of cockroaches and then sprayed them with poison [This is what Australians learn to do. Another program involved making an ambulance go fast enough to get a man who'd been bitten by a blue-ringed octopus to the hospital before he died, with methods including the ability for constant CPR].
      The power of the spray was represented by a decimal number [ e.g 0.1 killed 10% of the colony]. However, no matter how many times I sprayed them, the result was the same, because, BEING an idiot, I couldn't figure out how to spray the colony I'd already sprayed, and just kept spraying the original variable. This made for a very realistic program, but I still failed, as is my wont.

      And to end on a more positive note:

      helium4ion.png

      But seriously, folks.

      These comics are great.
      Geoff, Griffon & Matt are awesome.
      And so is the rest of RT.

      In this case, it was a good thing. A GREAT thing. Probably the best thing EVER .
      We were welcomed by Astro droids meandering about the convention.
      But 'Star Wars', Laura vandervoort, and the Soundwave festival aside, I got to meet some of the RT cast again!
      We handed Geoff a picture of us from Otakon '06, and he remembered us! I got the REcollection, two T-shirts, the first season of RT shorts, and got to have a good ten-minute conversation with Matt, Geoff, and Griffon!
      This was two days ago, and I'm still "riding the buzz". Is that a real phrase, "riding the buzz"? Who cares. The panel was awesome, RT is awesome, and life [at least, for the time being], is awesome.
      "And that's all I have to say about that".

      The best part of all this is that Psycholeric is actually female

      If Psycholeric is genuinely female, then I have to marvel at her rampant internalized misogyny. It's kind of worrying that she would go out of her way to insult another woman using gendered insults.

      I haven't seen it yet, still. Crazy, considering how much I've heard about it. Hopefully before the end of this year I'll rectify this and give a formal answer.
