Viral movie campaign pranks guys on ChatRoulette.

Call me mean, but I thought it was funny. We combine two prevalent, if played-out memes - TITS OR GTFO and screamer videos.

You know, I think I'm okay with this.

On the test of hipsterness, I am a non hipster.

I still have a crush on Colin Meloy, so that's all right.

Writer's Block: Out, Out Damn Spot!

Have you ever been passionate about something to the point of an obsession? If so, how did it impact the rest of your life? Did you ever (or would you want to) break free?

Yes. It still has the power to make me happy, even when I'm feeling very low. Not on your life.

I write like
Isaac Asimov

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

How do you feel when an adapted film's story deviates from the original material?

It depends. I love the film version of "Howl's Moving Castle," and I also enjoy the book version, though they are not at all the same things.

The rule of movies is that you shouldn't have to have read the source material to enjoy the film version. Still, I generally prefer them to be more similar than different.

Headline on The Daily Beast: "Does Robert Dudley have the worst job ever?"

It's referring to BP's Robert Dudley, but I thought it would give my fellow Tudor scholars a giggle.

Steampunk Pepper Grinder - now with pics!

I now own a steampunk pepper grinder. It's incredibly awesome.


I told you it was awesome.

Writer's Block: Prone to puns

How would you describe your sense of humor in six words or less?

Sardonic, silly, snarky.

Well, well, where have I been? Staying up late into the night each night this week to make pretty beaded things for a show that was well run, and lovely, but a complete flop since there weren't enough customers to fill a bus. A work friend bought a pair of $15.00 earrings, and that was it for my sales that day. My booth mate fared far better.

I'm starting to think that we jinx shows or something.

I have a nasty sunburn on my back today. I managed to apply heavy duty sunblock everywhere except for a square of skin in the middle of my back that was exposed by the top I was wearing. Ow.

In other news, I'm still deep in the throes of fangirl crush on The Decembrists (I've liked the band a while, but the fangirl crush is new) and listening to The Hazards of Love far more than can possibly be good for me. I may try to influence you to listen to it too, by saying things like ZOMG THIS IS THE BEST CONCEPT ALBUM IN THE LAST 35 YEARS AND YOU NEED IT NOWNOWNOWNOW!!!! but rest assured that it's just the fangirl talking.
