arionhunter: (Rachel Maddow - Thumbs Up)

I've been very lucky lately - things have been going incredibly well, all considered, and all emotional conundrums have been largely circumvented or avoided. So there will be photos and nerd stuff.

(To be fair, my mood was considerably brightened today after being told by a professor I really admire the first draft of a thesis-chunk is near-publishable for a peer-reviewed journal - an opinion strengthened by her being a journal editor herself.)

Under cut: Cat! Bar! )

Things I Have Been Watching: Gokaiger, Tiger & Bunny, Archer, MLP:FiM. )

Honestly, I play a lot more video games than watch video media lately. Because I can listen to podcasts in the background while I play, combining edification and relaxation.

Things I Have Played: The Witcher 2, Dragon Age II, Fable 3, Far Cry 2. )

Shameless self-promotion: Trial run on mapping the "network" of trans vloggers on YouTube. I'm probably going to get as much use out of this data as I can - definitely going to present at least once on it as filtered through location and declared race/ethnicity/nationality - and what that says about the changing state of trans visibility online.
I am way too sick to be up, but whatever. Because it amuses me, a thing I made.

Hipster Char.

So, for my third Mass Effect 2 playthrough, I decided about midway through fiddling with the character creation screen that I wanted to have a little fun (and make up some excuse for me to play an Infiltrator [sniper class] again).

Thus, I get very nerdy and created Oliver Shepard (nee Queen). Pretty sure I'm gonna end up romancing Miranda again, though if I'm playing Ollie, I really should romance either Tail or Jack. Both those romances skeeve me out, though.

So, I have inherited a monkeycat.

Said cat is Sora, originally Friend's cat. However, Friend's Roommate, who is a neat freak, put down an ultimatum: Sora or me. Due to financial reasons, he had to choose Roommate, and I had to take in Sora.

Her meeting with Cat went about as can be expected on the first day--fluffed tails all around. By this morning, however, they could largely share the couch in peace.

Sora is adorable, but I call her a monkeycat (alternately squirrelcat) for a reason. If it is climbable (including me), she will climb it--with or without claws. If she can try to get into it, she will. I've already accidentally locked her into a closet once.

And to the final point, she has made me into one of those cat owners.

[personal profile] arionhunter: I have become one of those cat people
[personal profile] petra: Oh?
[personal profile] arionhunter: Who treats their cats like children
[personal profile] petra: ohhh. yes. Those people.
[personal profile] arionhunter: I just told new!cat Sora, "In this household, we give spankings when you've been bad." in a parent-voice
[personal profile] petra: Oh. dear.

The first meeting. )

This morning. )
这星期的中文自己的最喜欢的翻译句子: "Instead, I looked at LOLcats."

Cat dreams of Invisible Merry-Go-Rounds.
For the amusement of northerners: the kind of snow that shuts down a Southern town.

Heard Neil Gaiman read Thursday. He was excellent, and totally worth putting up with the bar's poor beer selection. He said he his contract excluded signings, but this proved not to be entirely true: I and a group of friends stuck around a half-hour after the reading and found him at the side of the building, signing books. Sadly, though, he looks rather out of it in our group shot.

Annnnd....from the depths of V-Day clearance comes Twilight "Forbidden Fruits" Sweethearts. They come with a variety of creepy Twilight-trademarked phrases, but that's by no means the best part.

They sparkle. The hearts, filled with minuscule sugar crystals, sparkle. Cat was unimpressed.

(That's okay, because she was being adorable earlier.)

Given I'm ignoring the fact I had my first "I am gibbering and losing motor control" panic attack in a year and a half last night, I feel it is time for me + kittens.

Kittens! )

One of the things I love about my stress management tactics my ability to continuously create absolutely asinine projects that will please only me in utterly pointless ways. In example, stress means lots of making myself 9 p.m. cocktails and thinking thoughts like, "Hmm, Amp and Everclear. The hangover would be beautiful. And vomitous."

(I will be trying this Lethal Electroshock Injection Friday night, because I am really curious.)

But really, I just want to babble about Anime Weekend Atlanta. )

Last Weekend, in movies:
- Cutie Honey
- Bullitt
- Citizen Kane
- Xanada

This weekend, in photos. )

Ways to tell if I will bookmark something in Delicious:
- Is it about food? More specifically, is it about beer?
- Does it involve globalization?
- Does it involve Asia?
- Does it involve comics or animation (in China)?

Then I've probably bookmarked it. (Sadly, there are no Chinese comics/animation involving the globalization of beer in Asia. But one can hope!)
One of the great advantages to living surrounded by people with more money than you is that their garbage tends to be full of perfectly working items. So far I have acquired one fabulous office chair, one ironing board, one stand-up fan for the paper office, two nice chairs that just needed a little hammering, and one working minifridge to be sold to the highest bidding freshman.

However, our garbage also comes with many feral stray cats about which nothing can be done (people have tried many times). And today there was a Fail-y WTF addition:

Kinda-sorta warning for self-harm? )

And to end on a good note: Ingenious if stereotypically Southern fail, found in a junkyard outside Anniston, Ala.
I do not promise coherency. This is maybe four posts, compiled into one big "I need to sleep but I need to post" post. I promise post-finals I will scan in Mr. T and the T Force!

[personal profile] arionhunter: *just bought a book on the making of camp* I cannot wait for finals to be over
[personal profile] dingsi: *hug* stressful?
[personal profile] arionhunter: Yeah, and irritating because I have books! And I want to read them now.
[personal profile] dingsi: i know that feeling. it's like getting chocolate for easter and being expected to NOT eat it right away
[personal profile] arionhunter: Exactly!
I have a book on rhetoric and argumentation that takes on street preachers!
I know that's not sexy to everyone, but I'd hit it with a ten-foot pole.
[personal profile] dingsi: hah! I can see why


Things comics have given us that are questionable - the series "Lynch Mob." (man in the middle with the glowy fist is Lynch). The main character may or may not be a man of color whose codename is "Lynch." I do not have the time to take scans, but in the first issue Lynch's skintone considerably is darker than the white people he stands next to. The writer never clarifies Lynch's ethnicity, as they're all too busy fighting a hot anthropomorphized female computer AI in a bikini.

Then again, this imprint also gave comics "Smiley the Psychotic Button," whose first issue ends with Smiley realizing he, as a button, has no penis so he can't have dream-sex with Lady Death.

Summer reading list, mainly for personal reference. )

I swear, there will be a day where I make a post soon that is not made up of me talking about Cat.

Today is not that day.

So, Cat has this weird thing about carrots. Whenever I eat them and leave the bag out, she becomes obsessed with getting it open and smelling inside. I can't get her to eat any, however.

This obsession has now led to this scene:Cat Cuddles Carrots. Film at 11! )

Sooo...what happens when your internet is out for a night and you have no access to lolcats?

You take pictures of your cat. )

I will bother to post something of substance later when I am not tired and behind schedule.

In the meantime, I am so going to try and see this at least once before this year is over.

To make this entry truly pointless, it's a picture. Of my cat!
