"Hello, lover."

I can be a girl. I like fall fashion. I like to pretend that I'm 5'9" and can wear things. I like shoes. Things.

Gonna test myself! To be the best! Like no one ever was! (Yes, this started to turn into the Pokemon theme song.)

Gonna see if I can blog everyday in September and be super focused and just chat. If I have nothing there will be a picture with a comment, and let's face it: that's what half this blog is!

To make up for the first and second days, I'm just gonna flood today with THREE POSTS!!! *dundundunnnnnnnnnnn*

SO! *plops down on your bed, because I assume you're in you bed, like the bestie I am* Hi! How are you?! I'm doing fantastic!

You: "What the hell?"

Me: "Don't complain! You know you love it!"

You: *shrugs and let's me be*

This is how I assume things and play them out in my head. My head is a dangerous place where things go down weird.

Have I professed my love for Kumail Nanjiani? Because I feel like everyone should know my love for him and his wife Emily. They're like Wil and Anne Wheaton but even nerdier and more adorable!

"But, Lydia," you ask, "how can anybody be more adorable than Wil and Anne Wheaton?!"

Good question! And I answer your question by directing you to this >>>> LINK <<<< from an episode of @Midnight they did together! It's definitely worth the 30 minutes to watch!


Yeah. You gonna help me do this? Are you? You better. I got a determine face going on over here. I know you see this tweet or on Facebook, so yeah. Yeahhhhh.....*gives knowing look that you aren't so now I have to set calendar reminders all over the place*

"Yo' Adrienne!"

Things that I have done since I last talked to you:

1) See my loverly!

He's such a cutie! How did I land such a cutie?!
2) Watched Guardians of the Galaxy four times. That's right. You heard me. FOUR TIMES! Worth it!

3) Became jobless.

4) Started being the resident Whovian fangirl over this-a-way.

5) Swooned over Peter Capaldi twice now and also questioned Moffat's head.


6) Got jealous of my boyfriend because he got to go to Dragon*Con with out me because I decided to be responsible and not runaway to Atlanta, so yeah....he got to see things.

7) Watched 75% of Every Simpsons Episode Ever. Thank you FXX.

8) Got extremely sick for a week. It was gross.

9) Watch Benedict Cumberbatch win an Emmy and for the first time ever HE WASN'T THERE!

And, 10) I missed you! *hugs lappy*

So, yeah stuff.

Benedict as Turing and More Guardians of the Galaxy!

Despite my really shitty day, I have all of this week and next week to figure out some really hard core crap before I go on vacation. At least I had these two things as a great distraction:

1) Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be the amazing Alan Turing in a movie this fall that I hope comes to my crap hole of a town:

And 2) A legit full five minutes of what I consider the best thing in the Marvel Universe period that is now turned movie:

I love Guardians of the Galaxy too much. The story is just my cup of tea and it's not based at home (Earth) like almost every mainstream Marvel line with the exception of Thor. Which by the way: Thor becoming a chick is amazing. I hate the reason behind it. Instead of saying why not because that creed is gender neutral, they go and say we want more women to read our shit. By the way Marvel: WOMEN READ YOUR SHIT REGARDLESS! So yeah. Google the sources if you want, but here's my favorite of the concept art.

Now to cleanse my Marvel rant with some DC love:

Oh Geoff Johns, why are you putting your name on The Flash. It better be as awesome as Flashpoint and not depressing like my Green Lantern movie, which yeah you have a lot to make up for! It was AWFUL! I could have overlooked some of the crap in there but no! I'm now never going to get my everyone against Sinestro Corps movie like was hinted because you wanted to throw EVERYTHING about Green Lantern into one movie. Batman and Superman can get away with it because people who don't read comics know them. They don't know my Hal that much. Also I can't remember if the Justice League movie is going to have John Stewart, but if they do they better make him AMAZING!

So, that was deterred aggression. I'm going to re-watch this episode of The Colbert Report so I can get to the newest episode of @Midnight because Paul and Storm are going to be on my TV along with Mike Phirman. I'm excited.

Good night and good morning. Good day and good afternoon.

I'm back for good....I swear!

So, yeah it's July and a LOT has happened since I last wrote stuff over here. But in my kind of assisted numb state I'm gonna make promises, and I'm gonna keep them this time. One, for example is to blog every freaking day. No matter what (unless some freaky emergency happens and then I will tell you later if I can). I know I say this everytime I disappear for awhile, but I'm tired of not creating shit when I have thoughts or need to vent.

Two, I don't know what two involves but I know whiskey is involved and I'm five so *teehee* two.

For some reason I have gone blank. I had a whole manifesto to share and I guess pure exaughstion has gotten to me and the dance music playing in the background is so wonderfully entrancing that I may have gotten caught up in it (for the curious it's M83's Midnight City).

Onto another thought.

I love the internet.

Also I love Guardians of the Galaxy.

I love Chris Pratt.

I also love my best friend and the only person, majority of the times, that gets me with just a few words, Neil.

I love Twitter.

I love lovefests.

I wish I was a better friend.

But then again it's not like I want my anxieties take over, but they just do, so I become a crappy friend who is anti-social until she gets on Twitter and thinks she's a rock star! Then people like Joel Watson will glance at his Twitter feed and grace me with a tweet of thanks because I supported a wonderful thing that he does. Or that one time Brian Brushwood said if I asked nicely I could have one of his awesome unicorn shirts. Or just be acknowledged by amazing people that have been brought together by one thing and have lasting bonds over silly things and pick up conversations like it was five years ago.

I hate that I'm better friends with my internet friends than real life friends, but sometimes it's just easier for someone who hates meeting new people to meet new people and experience amazing things and bear witness to history.

So that was a tangent.

Today is a day that I just have feels because people put them there. So, I leave you with this and bid you good night as I listen to the wonderful Kumail Nanjiani's podcast about The X-Files:

Cumberbatch Fridays are back!

You thought they were gone but oh no, they're back!
*stares into your soul*


The Past Month

So, school has been put on pause for the millionth time and I'm okay with this, but with the holiday season over, January ended up sucking really bad for me.
I decided: "Hey I'm going to be positive with all the free time on my hands and actually do my resolutions: read more, exercise more, post on my blogs more, etc." The first two weeks were going great. I had a whole workout routine going on. I was eating right for the first time in forever and was finally feeling amazing.

Then the wall started to build itself up.

My winter doldrums decided to come out of the woodwork and depress the hell out of me. I didn't want to do anything. I lied in bed not even wanting to read the looming stack of books next to me. I felt a little better when work was basically the only thing getting me out of the house, but I still felt crappy.

I know I should have called up one of my remaining friends in the area and do something, but I didn't and still unfortunately want human interaction.

I hate that I get this way a few times out of the year. At least at this point in the year, even though I love it, I can blame it on the weather.

But, soon all will be well because hopefully it will stay warm for awhile until the tornadoes decide that they want the public platform and that just means a crap ton of rain soon and this song and dance may or may not resume!

For now all I can do is avoid the news, root for the Russian and Canadian figure skating teams (because their skating makes this emo girl cry like no ones business), and hide under my blankie and read books.

An aside: Have you been watching "Don't Trust Andrew Mayne"? Because that show is awesome. If you like well done illusions and don't mind really crappy reality show plot lines it's great!

By the way: This is just a rant of things I needed to get off my chest. I just get this way time to time and I know how to deal with it, so just letting you know: I'm okay.
