I am not dead yet [I can dance and I can sing!] ... [not really]

I mean, I guess I kind of *can* dance and my pitch and tone aren't so bad but I haven't got a great voice, exactly. But, anyway, Stuff That Has Happened, in brief:



SO THIS HAPPENED. Those are actual print books, you guys! With my name on them and my words inside them! I got them about two weeks ago and I've been staring at them ever since. IT IS SO EXCITING :D :D :D (For anyone who cares, Pants Off Reviews will have a competition up tomorrow to win a copy! Can't win if you're not in etc. [plus I should totally send traffic there because DarienMoya is an awesome lady and a lot of fun and said nice things about ASoE :D)

I have developed an agoraphobia coping mechanism which involves the collecting of cool t-shirts. So far it's working really well, and as a side effect: cool t-shirts! I am sharing this because I'm sure my family thinks I'm even more nuts than usual.

My jaw is fucking killing me. BUT, the new it-might-be-a-magnesium-deficiency theory has promise, so I am Optimistic that it will go away ::crosses fingers::

I am seriously sick of 'fondue' as a euphemism for sex. I get it, it was a line in Captain America: The First Avenger, it was kind of cute, but mostly I nearly died of second-hand embarrassment over it in the film and I just want it to go away /fandom grumpiness.

On that note, my kink bingo is turning into 'Steve Rogers fucks everyone' and I am kind of okay with that. Fanfic is a nice break from profic right now, too, and I kind of need a mental health break at the moment.

Also, I bought waaaay too many games in the Steam sale but fuck it I'm enjoying them and I bought myself a laptop capable of running any modern game for a reason, so fuck it. Did anyone else pick stuff up? Can I friend you on Steam? CAN WE PLAY TF2 together, guys?

ANYWAY, I intend to be Back from here on out but you know what they say about good intentions. So you may yet be spared from me for a while longer ;)

So, most important question: How is everyone?

:D - the competition is definitely open now, by the way!

YES. Runonopolis will be the champions or at least, you know, seriously impressive in their turnout and general ability and it's not the number of medals, really, it's the *quality* and is this run-on enough yet?

The fondue thing is about a line in which one character interprets it as a euphemism for sex (and gets dramatically jealous with drama that goes nowhere, yay) when the other character really does mean literal melted cheese. It's bizarre and, honestly, embarrassing in the movie (even if you don't know what fondue is, it doesn't sound like a sex-word, and ALSO, I mean, if Howard Stark blatantly asked Peggy Carter if she wanted to have sex with him, he would have died of stiletto-to-the-neck. Peggy would not have put up with that shit.)

I really need my jaw to stop hurting. NEED.

I tried to comment on the giveaway post, but signing in with either WordPress or LJ wasn't working, and I got cranky and walked away.

Guess I'll just have buy my copy. ;)
