ramble

If it works, I will stop auto-cutting my daily twitters. Sorry ahead of time to the days when I tweet a million things, but I haven't been doing that too much lately and my LJ looks INCREDIBLY LAME saying "Today's Twits" over and over and over again.

Other random things...

I saw How To Train Your Dragon. It was A-MAZ-ING. I want to go see it in 3d. I normally HATE 3d, it hurts my head and messes with my glasses and makes my eyes water, but I want to see the wheeee flying scenes in 3d and also it was SO GOOD did I say that it was GOOD because it was GREAT. I especially appreciated that they got the viking stairs correct. Basically vikings were all "stairs? who needs stairs? Let's just haul a fucking log into our house and chop some chunks out of it with our badass axes and climb it to get upstairs. Then for breakfast we'll eat some PINE TREES."

I went to a passover seder! It was also great, but in a different way. Hey, did you know that I remember WAY more prayers than I thought I did? It made me all yearn for jewishness and whatnot. I'm starting think maybe if I join a synagogue I can keep my whole not believing in god thing under wraps and find a nice jewish boy to marry me and NOBODY WILL KNOW. Hey, it's not like I'm going to hell, right? Jews haven't got hell! Yay!

I've been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is, really, quite horrible, so I'm glad that I stayed away from it during my tender, squishy, formative years. Hello, Xander, best male friend who has terrible rents, self esteem problems, the hots for ALWAYS the worst. girl, who doesn't go to college like all the rest of his friends, and eventually becomes someone who is apparently considered to be the most capable, accomplished, informed and badass normal of the entire character roster? This shit would have KILLED. ME. DEAD because there are enough things that I have to identify with and enough that are just cooler enough for me to want to identify with that I would have had shit like Xander posters on my wall and written Xander self-insert Mary Sue fanfic. I would have joined yahoo groups and had a geocities shrine about this. Thank god I stayed away from Buffy in highschool, really. But anyway, I started watching it due to it being on Logo along with RuPaul's Drag Race (BEST SHOW EVER except it sucks now Pandy's gone boooo) and it SUCKED ME IN. It's on-par with the Adventures of Hercules, so now I have to be all completionist about it. I'm waffling about watching Angel, but Spike is the best character in all of Buffy and really the only one I have any emotional attachment to (apart from Xander who is another kettle of unresolved puberty fish) and Spike evidently pops back up in Angel so goddamn I bet I'll watch that one too. Boooooo. Also I kinda ship Buffy/Giles which is apparently VERBOTEN so I'm clearly not the intended audience.

*breathes*

Uh... other fandomy nerd stuff... My iCarly comm, 5_4_3_2, is essentially dead in the water. I feel bad about it but there's nothing I can do. The comm is there for people to post and share stuff, but nobody's doing so. My little star trek comm, Startwek, has like, double the members! So... boo on that. I feel weird about the whole iCarly thing. With all these new nick shows happening that I'm not watching whatsoever, I really feel like I'm too old for this shit. But of course, I'm squeeing about a 3d movie about dragons, so who the fuck knows. MEH to the FEH.

I'm gonna try to have a new nerdy wallpaper tomorrow. Possibly Raj related, but also possibly Sailor Moon, because clearly I do those the best.

Sailor Moon is the obvious choice. Take it straight back the early 90s.

I've heard NOTHING but rave reviews for How to Tame Your Dragon. I am dying to see it!

Bwaha Willow is my favorite character, but Xander and Spike are close seconds! I actually didn't watch it as religiously back in the say as I did other WB shows, but I think it holds up pretty well. I'm assuming you haven't seen the seventh season yet, because there's an episode that you are definitely not going to like. It's very traumatic for Xander lovers.

He has like, his eyeball ripped out and he goes all "I have a motherfucking eyepatch now, bitches!" right? Really though I think a lot of the affection for Xander comes from his constant being in HORRIBLE PERIL and SUFFERING. Just like my love for Daniel Jackson from Stargate, I think I'm in this for the whump factor. If Xander didn't get his ass kicked and his ego bruised on a regular basis, he'd just be a jerk with a lot of puns and occasionally bad hair.
