I’ve been informed that I need to share my
Christmas wishlist so people can buy me things.
As I like presents, I feel like I should link you to my
Amazon Christmas wishlist.
If you want a Christmas card from me, you have until the 15th to send me your address. If you don’t have an alternate method of contacting me, leave a comment and I’ll send you an email.
If I Should Have a Daughter – Sarah Kay
I’ve seen this talk a few times and I love it. I admire her perspective, her poetry and the way that she speaks.
I feel lucky when I can say three sentences without fumbling for words and then making a crack about how I speak for a living and here she is, speaking for 18 minutes and sounding confident and rhythmic.
(And yes, I know that there’s at least two people who saw that title and wondered if the pod people have me. They don’t, it’s just the name of the talk.)
Hello and welcome to the Whedon crossover you didn’t know you wanted until it happened.
I went to
Planet Comicon this weekend. Met up with Pam and a few others and we did some quality wandering and gawking.
I didn’t take many pictures while I was there because I was busy keeping my shit together. Turns out that I handled the crowds pretty poorly compared to the last con I visited.
Note to self: secure Xanax before the next con.
I got some pretty nifty swag–a poster, some artwork to frame, a Stay Puft marshmallow man, a Buffy sketch book from
Georges Jeanty, some pins and some vinyl stickers.
Oh, and the
50th Anniversary Doctor Who Monopoly game. I’m trying to convince my sister to play it with me, but apparently I always won when we played Monopoly as kids and she claims she’s scarred. Hmph.
Here are my three favorite photos of the day. Please ignore the fact that I clearly need to stop wearing and/or burn that shirt.
That’s right. I met Wolverine. Didn’t drool on him or anything (I waited until after he walked away. I’m classy like that.)
I buddied up to a Dalek. I think it’s decided to accept peace, love and happiness. Either that, or it’s dead. Whatever.
I found the TARDIS! Sadly, the Doctor was not waiting to whisk me away, but I’m sure it’ll happen next time…right?
Pizza and beer, oh!
how delicious it will be
it is time to cheer

I don’t know much about Amanda Palmer.
I know that she’s married to
Neil Gaiman, who has written some fabulous books. Seriously, go read Neverwhere or American Gods.
I remember hearing the song
Coin Operated Boy and thinking it was highly entertaining and more than just a little bit different. Beyond that, I don’t know if I could identify any of her music.
Based on this video, I’m going to go ahead and say she’s pretty damn awesome.
Every year, I put up a link to my wishlist, in the hopes that someone will buy me something shiny.
Here’s the shiny list.
Or, as I told a friend earlier today, “Happy Yam Sham Day!”
If you’ve not seen this episode of Buffy, go look up Pangs, which is from Season Four. If you don’t watch Buffy, I’m sad for you. At least watch this clip:
You made a bear!
Now, I know that some people prefer to think of Thanksgiving as Slapsgiving, and I’m cool with that and wish you a happy Slapsgiving.
But perhaps you prefer Friends?
I still think they should release DVDs of just the Thanksgiving episodes.
Some people may notice that I have thus far left out my favorite Thanksgiving tradition–listening to Alice’s Restaurant while driving to wherever I plan on eating turkey that year.
So just remember…you can get anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant! (excepting Alice)
