HELLO EVERYONE I AM IN FACT NOT DEAD

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

NOPE. NOT DEAD AT ALL. IN FACT I WAS VERY MUCH ALIVE THE LAST TIME I CHECKED. WHICH WAS LIKE AN HOUR AGO. (Though I don’t suppose that really makes a difference.)

Anyway, my point is that I have not posted in a while (I know I’m being Captain Obvious here, but it was a point I needed to acknowledge). I am posting now to inform you all that not only am I still alive, but stuff happened in the long three-ish months in which I did not post. STUFF. HAPPENED.

End of post.

………you’re still here, aren’t you? Of course, with all those tantalizing ellipses stacked in such neat rows that run off the screen because they are so long, you’d be crazy not to scroll down here. You see, you’e the kind of person that sees zillions of ellipses and goes “These aren’t just here for no reason. There must be something rewarding at the bottom.”

Either that or you thought I was going to tell you about the stuff that happened. Well guess what? You’re absolutely right.

Ladies, gentlemen, and Daleks, I give to you, in no apparent order, “STUFF THAT HAPPENED”:

First Off, I got a DeviantART Account

So I can share my silly fan art nonsense with the internet! Feel free to check out my profile and be a stalker and go through my drawings.

SCHOOL’S OUT

FOREVER! Actually, it’s only for the summer as in like two measly months because the district decided we needed an extra stinking week and a half of taking finals and doing nothing.

I’m still happy even though we should have gotten out a week ago when everybody else did. Mom let me bring my plushie Dalek, Ralph, to school, too… and I also dressed up like the Doctor and walked down to Town Center with by friend after school, so it was all pretty cool :D

Oh, and my sister and I did our annual playing of “School’s Out” on Guitar Hero III. I had to play bass because it was co-op career, but it was still awesome!

School isn’t officially out until “School’s Out” has been played!

Denerdified

My braces are gone now! I am no longer a little nerd girl!

No more metal mouth for me!

I Believe in Intergalactic Hitchhikers

I finally got around to reading “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and the following two books in the series, “The Restaurant at the End of the Universe”, and “Life, the Universe, and Everything”. Let me tell you: those are the most brilliant things ever. Seriously. Half the time you don’t even know what’s going on, but they are just such great stories, and the characters are amazing, and they’re wildly hilarious. The thing that’s totally trippy about them is that they make absolutely no sense and are extremely random, but they are woven together in such a way that they make perfect sense in a completely nonsensical way. If there’s one thing I know about Douglas Adams (the author), it’s that he was a genius. If you want an insane ride filled with interstellar travel, infinite improbability drives, people turning into penguins, and depressed robots (Marvin!), you need to read those books. I still haven’t gotten around to reading the next two books, “So Long and Thanks for all the Fish” and “Mostly Harmless”, but I will soon!

Oh, and for those movie people out there, the movie version of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” is marvelous. Although I would advise reading the book first because you will understand the movie much better and be able to enjoy it more.

May 25 was in fact Towel Day (well actually it was Geek Pride Day), a geek holiday created specifically to celebrate the Hitchhiker’s series and fandom. I wore a towel around my neck and carried a sign around at school that had the words “DON”T PANIC” written on it in large, friendly letters. (You will not understand the towel thing or the don’t panic thing unless you’ve read the book, and it’s too hard for me to explain right now. Trust me.)

Always know where your towel is.

My Room has Been Painted!

Out with the happy sky blue, in with the TARDIS blue! My grandparents came over a while ago and helped me paint my room. It is now a brilliant dark blue that looks exactly like the color of a certain time machine. I also hung up my Dalek poster, two prints I bought at ComiCon, and my pixel clock! Yay!

Tie rack and um, stuff.

Pixel clock and ComiCon prints!

My messy bed :3

My dresser and Dalek poster. TO VICTORY!!!

And that is all for my room!

I Danced in a Thunderstorm

It was actually Towel Day when this occurred. Mill Creek was just sitting there minding its own business when all of a sudden BAM! THUNDERSTORM!

I actually didn’t mind it that much because the rain was AMAZING. It was the kind of rain that only happens when Thor is around. Seriously. It was that fabulous.

So, with a great huge random thunderstorm running rampant through the neighborhood knocking over trees and such, I did what any normal, sane person would do: I wrapped my towel around my neck like a cape, ran outside in my t-shirt and jeans, and danced.

 Awkward running motion.

More awkward running motion.

Awkward swooshy hair motion.

And then the storm left and I was sad.

Fish Custard Day

April 3rd is officially Fish Custard day, named in honor of the brilliant 11th Doctor and his eating of the delicious delicacy. To celebrate, my sister and I ate fish custard!

Oh how Whovian of us.

TONIGHT, WE DINE!!!

Drinking custard out of the bowl because the Doctor did it. That means I must also do it.

!!!SPOILERS!!! Matt Smith wasn’t actually eating fish sticks in that scene! They were battered coconut sticks! !!!END SPOILERS!!!

And now I shall end this post with the gif that will forever be funny.

AVENGERS FTW!

FAREWELL, DEAR FOLLOWERS!!!

Emerald City ComiCon 2012 & April Fool’s Day

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

This year, my family got the opportunity to go to the Emerald City ComiCon again. Luckily, we were all able to go this time (last year Emily was sick, and mom had to stay home with her.) I must say that despite the horrid parking conditions, dreary weather, and the hordes of people that crowded the convention center, I had an absolute blast. My sister and I cosplayed this year as Daleks from the season 5 Doctor Who episode Victory of the Daleks. We wore our awesome Halloween costumes that our amazing grandma so lovingly sewed for us, and I must say that they were a ginormous hit. We seriously couldn’t walk through the atrium room (which wasn’t even the main area) without getting mobbed by people wanting our picture. Sometimes other Doctor Who characters would show up and pose with us, which was awesome! I cannot believe how many Doctors there were! We took pictures with at least 12 (maybe more) Doctors, and saw at least 20 (no kidding).

Apparently we were the only Daleks there, and it got to the point where people were literally looking for us so they could get their pictures taken with us. I felt like a celebrity! Normally I hate getting my picture taken, but it was actually quite fun to meet other Whovians, and listening to people shriek “OMG DALEKS!!!” never got old!

I also bought some cool stuff, namely a troll face button, a Forever Alone Guy pin, a snake tie (which looks quite Slytherin-influenced), and two awesome prints of the 11th Doctor and a fez-wearing Dalek.

You’re probably wondering what those pictures I was talking about look like, so now I am going to post all of our ComiCon pictures. Prepare for an awesome post that is epically long and filled with all sorts of cosplaying goodness (plus some commentary along the way)!

I’m going to post these in sections because there are so many…

Getting There, Standing in Line, and That Sort of Thing

‘Twas a stormy day in Seattle.

Waiting for the elevator in the parking garage. (Note the addition of glowing lights to the already awesome costumes.)

 The insane escalators, including the rebel escalator that decided not to work on one of the days when it most needed to be working.

The line to get the badges that granted entry. So… many… people… (and that wasn’t even the half of it.)

 Emily and I waiting in line. (Our lights even glowed inside!)

Still waiting. YES I AM WEARING MAKEUP, NOW DON’T YOU DARE SAY A THING ABOUT IT OR THE BASILISK WILL EAT YOU!

Never argue with a basilisk.

Emily waiting.

The lady with the umbrella just noticed us XD

(Finally) getting our badges!

Posing for our first picture.

A welcome sign for the joyous occasion.

Walking inside.

Posing with dad.

Posing with mom.

Posing against the official background (more or less.)

10th Doctor Cosplayers

This section will be all the pictures of us with 10th Doctors.

This guy was by far my favorite Doctor there. He was awesome, friendly, and we kept running into him all over the place. At one point, he even started photobombing pictures that other people took of us XD

 Posing with Awesome Doctor (which is what I’m going to call him for now on.)

We met up with Awesome Doctor again, and this time he had friends, namely Rose Tyler from the season 2 episode The Idiot’s Lantern and Joan Redfern from the season 3 episodes Human Nature and The Family of Blood. (There’s even an 11th Doctor and an Amy Pond in the background!)

Another 10th Doctor who looked slightly bewildered when dad told us to stick our plungers in his face.

I think we were making him feel a bit uncomfortable XD

He got into it after a bit…

…and then he couldn’t stop laughing XD

We saw Awesome Doctor again, and this time Captain Jack Harkness decided to jump in behind us.

Another 10th Doctor and a Rose Tyler.

11th Doctor Cosplayers

This section will be all the pictures of us with 11th Doctors.

The first 11th Doctor we saw.

The second 11th Doctor we saw.

A very awesome trio of Amy, Rory, and the Doctor.

Let the epic battle commence!

Another 11th Doctor, plus a guy with an awesome TARDIS hat!

An 11th Doctor who looked to be around the same age as us. (Note the other Doctor in the left-hand side of the background.)

Two Doctors!? It’s a paradox!

An awesome 11th Doctor with a cool pose.

The last 11th Doctor we encountered.

Other Who Cosplayers

This section will be all the pictures of us with other cosplayers who were also Who characters.

A very cool TARDIS.

 Another TARDIS (I love her fedora) and an Amy Pond.

The first Weeping Angel we encountered. (We were sure not to blink!)

Our second Weeping Angel encounter– this girl had one of the best costumes of the day and she was seriously creepy!

Posing with the Weeping Angel again. This time we got epically photobombed by Awesome Doctor!

Tormenting poor Amy XD

This 4th Doctor kid was awesome!

Posing with a very well done Amy Pond.

Posing with River Song.

And now for one of my favorite photos, mostly because it reminds me of how fun it was to be in the picture, I give you the Who Mob!

Just look at all that Whovian awesomeness! We’ve got a 4th Doctor, an Amy Pond, a River Song, an 11th Doctor, two TARDISes, two 10th Doctors, and us Daleks! I spotted this crowd across the room, and Emily and I were quick to run over to them. When they saw us, they were all like “DALEKS!!!” and they swiftly assimilated us into their ranks, front and center. There were a lot of people who took pictures of our mob.

Other Cosplayers

This section will be all the pictures of us with cosplayers who were not Who characters, but were still awesome.

Getting our picture taken with Darth Vader. He even knew what a Dalek was, exclaiming “Those are the cutest Daleks I’ve even seen!” when we came to get our picture taken.

Emily with the Star Wars characters (who all had amazing costumes!)

Dad’s favorite photo, Daleks and Stormtroopers!

 Posing with a Jedi.

Me and an insanely awesome Beaker!

Posing with the Ghostbusters, who didn’t seem to be the slightest bit afraid of Daleks.

Posing with two of the cutest kids there, Hermione and a butterfly fairy.

Emily and Link.

Other Costumes

This section will be all the photos of other cosplayers who we did not pose with, but had cool costumes.

When I saw these two, I was like “No, way! They are so awesome!” I can’t believe there were two gas-mask-zombies from the season 1 Doctor Who episodes The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances! The first thing we did when we saw them was say “Are you my mummy?”

Groose from the newest Zelda game “Skyward Sword”. This girl had one awesome costume!

Zelda from “Skyward Sword” and Sheik from “Ocarina of Time”.

Another Zelda-themed costume, the Moon from “Majora’s Mask”!

Some awesome Star Wars people.

An adorable Jedi kid.

A cool Mandalorian.

An extremely well done Batman and the Punisher.

Batman and Catwoman.

An awesome Batman-ninja!

This girl had one of the most amazing costumes there!

Hogwarts students in their natural environment (sort of).

The little girls again because they are just so cute!

Another adorable costume, an Optimus Prime kid! (It took his dad two months to build his costume out of foam core.)

A soldier from Avatar.

Definitely some of the most creative costumes there, the Sesame Street Martians!

Yes, you are seeing this correctly. That is a zombie Mr.Rogers. All of your happy childhood memories of that show have just been shattered.

Random Pictures and Going Home

Here’s some pictures of us walking around and then leaving.

Walking around the main floor.

 The chaos and discord of the lower levels. See the lines over on the left? Those were the reason why we didn’t get to meet the Weasley twins… or anybody for that matter. Lines: y u no b shorter???

Leaving :( I didn’t want to leave!

Posted!

Wow, our costumes were so popular that we even got posted on some sites, including the Stranger! Here’s a list of places we’ve showed up at on teh internetz:

The Stranger

KOMO 4 News

Fashionably Geek

And, of course, dad’s blog coregeek

We’ve also been posted on several Tumblrs, too, which dad is adding to his new Tumblr

Well, that’s about all for Emerald City ComiCon!

April Fool’s Day 2012

Now for a very brief description of how I trolled my friend at her birthday party.

It was nothing exciting, really. I just wore makeup and a skirt, which is completely out of my element (and comfort zone. I actually ended up looking like a Hogwarts student with my Slytherin tie… and troll face button.)

Slytherin is awesome.

I b trollin’.

Again, no comments about the makeup… or the skirt for that matter. And if you do, just remember…

 The basilisk is always waiting to snap you up.

On that note, farewell dear readers, and congrats if you made it all the way through this monstrosity of a post!

My Birthday, 3-14-12, Trollololo, & Stuff

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Whew, I haven’t posted for a very long time (mostly due to the fact that I’ve been running around saving the universe and such for the past month), so this post is going to be about all the random stuff I haven’t covered (and it might be a tad bit on the long side, so please bear with me.)

MY BIRTHDAY

First off, my birthday was about a month ago. I don’t know about anyone else, but lately my birthday has ceased to excite me. When I was younger, I used to count down the days until my birthday and think about it every waking hour of February, but now I’m just like “Whoop dee doo, another year.” The weird thing is that I’m not even that old.

Despite my apparent unexcitement (which I just discovered is not actually a word; I now declare “unexcitement” to be a word meaning “a lack of excitement”) at the prospect of another birthday, I had an awesome time. My friends came over for a birthday party that I will never forget for more than one reason. The party this year was completely theme-less and we basically derped around and ate stuff the whole time, which turned out to be much more enjoyable than having structured things to do :D

My cake this year was none other than the coolest hat in the world, the fabulous fez!

Dad working his cake making magic.

Adding stuffity-stuff around the edges.

The fabulous fez-cake.

The candles are lit!

Dad tried to set me on fire, but I escaped using a combination of ninja skills and alien reflexes.

I believe this is when my friends sang “Happy Birthday” (I would like to take this opportunity to point out the face my friend Taylor is making in the right hand side of the picture’s background XD)

The tassel on my fez looks awesome in this picture!

And so we ate cake.

Now one of the best parts of the party was when I got to do something I’ve wanted to do ever since a fateful day last summer: eat fish sticks and custard. My first episode of Doctor Who was “The Eleventh Hour” from season 5, and ever since I watched that I’ve wanted to try fish sticks and custard so bad. I bugged my mom for weeks on end about buying me some, but she always said “You don’t need fish sticks and custard. Besides, you hate fish sticks!” I finally got her to agree on getting some for my birthday party, and she actually did!

The glorious food of Gallifreyan legend, waiting to be consumed.

As soon as my dad brought the foodstuff downstairs for us to try, my friends all whipped out their phones and started videoing me. I must say there was a tremendous amount of pressure and an overall sense of “Eat it… EAT IT!!” about the room when I was about to take my first bite.

Cameras make me feel nervous -_-

After all those months, I finally got to try it!

Note that this is my first experience with custard.

Fish sticks are disgusting, but this… this is MARVELOUS!

I am not lying; fish sticks and custard is actually an amazing combination! (Although not all of my friends thought so.) I’m telling you guys, the Eleventh Doctor really knows what he’s doing!

I’m making such a creeper face, but I felt so Time Lord.

I opened gifts afterwards. I would like to extend a warm thank you to all my awesome friends :D

A group picture.

3-14-12

Next up in the order of business (sorta) is 3-14-12, otherwise known as Pi Day 2012. After my extreme disappointment at last year’s Pi Day’s lack of pie, I was very excited when my mom revealed that she’d gone through all the trouble to secretly make and hide a chocolate mousse pie and absolutely could not contain my excitement at the thought of eating pie on Pi Day (especially considering the fact that I was disappoint at geometry class for not supplying me with my daily source of pie income.)

The chocolate mousse secretly being made.

The pie and extra mousse are hidden, how sneaky…

Am I the only one who thinks of Charlie the Unicorn whenever I hear the word “sneaky”?

The finished pie. It was delicious!

Mom is awesome! :D

TROLLOLOLO

This week, I committed a random act of trolling which I am rather proud of. Tolo is coming up at school (the stupidest dance in the world where the girls ask the guys) and, being the Forever Aloner that I am, I decided to troll all the people that were gong just for the heck of it because of how I despise all dances. I noticed how tons of annoying posters advertising “Glolo Tolo! Wear neon colors and a bunch of other crap that nobody cares about!” had somehow invaded the walls of my school. Whenever I saw the word “Glolo” I immediately thought of “Trollo” and I was like “Trollo Tolo? It’s perfect!” And so I came to school one day with a troll face, the word “TROLLO”, and a tape dispenser. In the morning, I carefully taped the troll face onto the poster and taped “TROLLO” over “Glolo”. My act of trolling complete, I nonchalantly walked back over to my friend Catherine, who was pretending not to know me as I was trolling. The results were quite satisfying.

The original poster (albeit with the info blurred out):

The Trolled Version:

“TROLLOLOLOLO-LOLOLO-LOLOLO”

Unfortunately, someone must have been jelly of my troll face, because I came back three periods later, and the poster had been de-trolled. Although, when you think about it, it was a successful troll because someone had a problem with it :D


That’s all for now :)

Happy Forever Alone Day

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

I know what you’re thinking; it’s Valentine’s Day, and I’m just mad because I’m single. Let’s clarify this situation: I’m not mad because I’m single, and I’m also not single (everyone who knows me suddenly gasps.)

Before you start wondering what has happened to me, I would like to explain that there is a huge difference between being single and being Forever Alone. Single is when you could have time for love, but not at the moment whereas Forever Alone is when love is not part of your life and never will be. In saying that I am not single, I am not implying that I am taken. I’m actually stating my Forever Alone status, which I am rather proud of.

My hatred of Valentine’s Day inspired me to have Forever Alone Day this year! Well, actually it was the school’s fault. I arrived at school one day only to find posters everywhere that said (and I quote this straight from the source): “VALENTINE’S SPIRIT DAY! Colors to wear: red– taken; hands off, pink– swingin'; it’s complicated, or white– single and ready to mingle!” For whatever reason those stupid posters made me so mad. I hate the way my school acts like everyone should be in a relationship, especially around times like dances or Valentine’s Day. They always act like if you’re a girl and you don’t have a boyfriend (or vice versa) then you aren’t worth anything in the social world. News flash, school: some girls don’t need boyfriends and couldn’t get one even if they wanted one. Nobody ever thinks about the Forever Aloners. And that’s why my friend Anna and I (and a lot of other people, apparently) came up with a brilliant plan: wear black. So we did. It was a Forever Alone Blackout! All those red-wearing people strutted around twirling roses and holding gifts like they were just so cool, but we donned black garments of all sorts and drew broken hearts on our hands and faces, keeping a low profile in our Forever Aloneliness. It was pretty awesome. Here’s what I wore to school:

Black is the color of loneliness.

A broken heart, the symbol of our cause.

I also passed out “Alonetines” instead of Valentines:

That would be me in Forever Alone form.

Of all the Rage Guys, I like the Forever Alone Guy the best. He’s the one I can really relate to and imagine myself as, which makes the Rage Comics he appears in seem even better. In fact, I even created a Whovian Rage comic about this Valentine’s Day.

Click to enlarge!

 That’s all for today.

HAPPY FOREVER ALONE DAY!
