I know fanfic is serious business for some people, I mean, I've been known to get pissy about things sometimes but I just got linked (for whatever reason) to this irate person reviewing my old Ranma 1/2 fanfic. I wrote this stuff when I was 16. I'm 33 now.

It's 17 year old fanfic and this guy is ranting and raving about how horrible it is and... I'm just baffled. I can see reviewing current fanfic but why dig out stuff that's long dead? I'm curious where he found it. I think I mention on my personal website I consider my anime fanfic to be pretty much crap. I forget my exact wording. It's more delicate I imagine.

This stuff really shows my fandom age.

Apparently St. Louis is the most dangerous city in the United States. As a native who has lived all over the country and loves her hometown I find that a little... unbelievable. Ours isn't a large city so I'm not sure how we beat out cities like NYC, Detroit, Chicago, or LA. Anyway, dangerous or not I love STL and give the finger to that study.

I had a random guy at work start talking to me about how Obama is a member of the Illuminati and how there are all these secret cures for cancer and other deadly diseases that only high ranking members of our government have access to. Also that Obama-care is an attempt to get the genetic code of everyone in our country. I zoned out while he was telling me why they want everyone's genetic code though. Funny thing is, he didn't look crazy really. Mostly he looked like an aging hippie. This is mostly due to the scraggly long hair past his shoulders and tie dye shirt.

Things like this are why I continue to perversely love working customer service jobs.

I'm sort of drunk but look! I loved Kids Incorporated as a kid and I had a huge crush on Stacy and apparently Stacy was played by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.

I hate freshwater fish. I hate to eat them. I hate how they smell. I hate how they look. I hate the idea of them as pets. Generally they creep me out. They're slimy and alien looking and just... ew. Aquarium fish are okay. The ones found in the ocean don't bother me, I'm not sure why. I still don't like to eat them but they don't seem alien and weird.

That being said, with all of my loathing of freshwater fish, why the fuck have I been watching River Monsters on Animal Planet for the past few hours? I HAVE NO IDEA. rofl. I cannot stop myself. I'm so fucking creeped out by these goddamn fish this guy goes after but I can't stop watching!

It's sick, really it is. Oh yeah, and the snakehead? That fucker is evil. I felt compelled to read more on that fish after watching the show about it and I already knew how invasive and horrible it was to our natural ecosystem but now I'm bummed and pissed off because it seems inevitable it's going to spread across our country. It's way too aggressive and breeds too quickly and I have no idea how fish and wildlife services have any hope of stopping it without killing our own native species in the process. I mean, basically it's going to off all our own native fish and take over and honestly, how many Americans want to eat snakehead? Not many. I don't see it showing up on the menu at Red Lobster anytime soon. It will fuck over our fishing industry. Long story short? Whoever introduced it to our waters is a huge asshole, seriously.

Now I'm watching an episode about a huge catfish in the Amazon that eats people. Why can't I turn this off?

This does not remotely resemble my memories of the characters in the Ramona books. Beezus in particular. Why is Selena Gomez playing her? I hate it when things from my childhood are ruined. It's like the Willy Wonka movie remake and I know it did technically follow the book closer but you know what? I don't care. The Gene Wilder version is better and Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for it.

Anyway. This makes me sad inside and I had to share my pain because I'm mean that way.

I love it when homophobic politicians are outed as having gay sex and by love I mean I consider them lame ass fucktards.

In other weird news, my friend Ryan thinks his daughter can see ghosts because she keeps talking about speaking to sheep who are in pieces and some dude named Jorge who I say killed the sheep.

It's sad that I'm that much of a South Park fangirl when I read about this all I could think of was...

New South Park episodes start March 17th and I cannot wait. Also, I have ideas for a fourth Whip It fanfic for my ongoing series. Each fic seems to get longer than the last so I suspect this next one will be huge. Anyway. I think I'll start making myself plot it out tomorrow in Scrivener. I'm trying to create a tiny fandom by my lonesome it seems but I cannot help it. Juliette Lewis is too pretty in black leather. I can't resist.

For the first time today I had an actual person seriously speak to me about the "homosexual agenda" as if it was a legitimate worry of theirs. I stared at them, brain broken temporarily, before I managed to reply that I was part of said agenda.

The conversation quickly ended.

I just watched this movie last night and holy shit, it's more traumatizing than Watership Down and that scares the living crap out of me. Just because I'm twisted like that I have to link clips of the most fucked up scenes in the movie. The easiest thing to explain how fucked up this movie is would be just explaining the plot itself.

Plague Dogs is about two dogs escape from a laboratory and are hunted as possible carriers of the bubonic plague. Yeahhhhhh. As someone who loves her dogs dearly this movie made me sniffle.

LJ Cut for traumatizing oh noes, cute doggies why )

Seeing as how I'm going back to school (yet again) for science like things I found this quote from Rush Limbaugh involving the NASA moon "bombing" going on today particularly hilarious and awesome.

We are going to bomb the moon. NASA, Friday, tomorrow, we’re going to bomb the moon, no preconditions, no negotiations! What did the moon do to us? Is somebody up there on the moon doing things that only Obama knows about? We’re going to bomb the moon.

If there are smarter people than us out there — and, of course, goes without saying they would have to be — and they have brought peace throughout the universe except for earth and we’re bombing the moon, this could set up a retaliatory attack! You know, wait ’til the meteorites organize when they hear about this, folks.

Now I'm all for thinking there's intelligent life out there. I believe in ghosts, remember? I sure as heck am not discounting the possibility of aliens. I just don't think they'd be pissed at NASA for sending up the Centaur rocket to look for water and ice. Doesn't seem logical as Spock would say.

ETA: WTF with Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize? I mean, it's cool and all but what did he do again? Besides be awesome, that is? Either way, Rush should say more hilarious crazy things when he finds out.

Morrissey and The Smiths are traditionally angsty music, yes? But for some reason I'm always in a good mood when I listen to them. They make me feel cheery, despite the depressing method of singing and the lyrics, I'm happy as a clam when listening to their music. Whatever happy as a clam means. It's certainly not happy like the clams that get eaten by the walrus in that Alice In Wonderland side story.

Oh wait. Those were oysters. Whatever though.

I'm not sure I listen to a specific artist when depressed though. I don't get depressed very often so maybe that has to do with it? Whenever my friend Rachel plays anything by Kate Bush we know she's going through some form of a meltdown. I sort of dread hearing Strange Phenomena because of this.

Anyway! Have a musical quirk to share? I'm posting this because I've been listening to Morrissey/The Smiths for like... two hours nonstop and I'm so fucking cheerful. lol. It's odd, I know!
