♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I am going to Art Smith's restaurant this weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


Even though southern food is a bit outside of my scope generally speaking (because of a complete and total lack of exposure to it for my entire life - it has never been a culture point for my family), I am super pumped. I kind of fell a little bit in love with Art Smith when he was on Top Chef Masters and I've been dying to check out his place since then. Just looking at the menu I am kind of feeling like, 'shit dude I will take one of everything thanks'. there is a pickle salad on this menu how is that not the most amazing thing? I'd...promise a full report after, but we all know my history with follow through so let's just say I'll try?





On the HI DAD, YOU ARE AWESOME front: I got an email from my dad the other night. At around eleven o'clock at night, actually. This email? ASKING FOR HELP WITH TWILIGHT PRINCESS. Add to this the fact that my mother reported to me that he has on more than one occasion stayed up until at least 1 am playing (in other words, just like when I was a kid and he stayed up until 3 am playing Mario on my NES) and I am SO FREAKING HAPPY I got them a Wii for Christmas. Protest all you want, Dad, I know you like it. :D

Now all I need is for Myst to freaking put out another game so we can actually play a game together for real, rather than just trading silly emails about it.






IN CONCLUSION: Is anyone else watching Fairly Legal? I am kind of in love with it. Like, a lot. I am actually remembering to be in front of the tv to watch it, which is kind of a thing for me. Very few shows get that. Also, after five episodes, I am now convinced that Kate is actually Kate Bishop all grown up. I started getting that notion during the promos, and the actual show has done not a thing to dissuade me of it.

I AM SO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORED

My brain is being difficult with me, giving me the interest in writing porn - and even some of the porn - and yet not allowing me to do any sort of contextualization for said porn.


I hate my brain like it was a separate thing outside of myself that I could hate with my usual misanthropy. Except extra, because my hate for my own brain is very profound.



Anyway I am dicking around at the moment, waiting for the SO to get off of Assassin's Creed because I want to play Shadow Hearts, and so what I am going to do is a mini prompt fest to see if it will make my brain get the fuck over itself.

BRAIN, TAKE NOTE. /points


This is what happens when I am left to my own devices.
Also TFLN is entertaining. )


AWWW YEAH JUST ZIPPED OVER AND PICKED UP MY SIGNED SPX PRINTS FINALLY. SWEET FUCKING CHRISTMAS.
attilatehbun: ([this will not end well])
NO GUYS, I REALLY DO THINK THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING ACTUALLY WRONG WITH ME

aa;klsdrual;knfaoseiyr



OH GOD DON'T ENCOURAGE THIS )

I should not be allowed.
attilatehbun: ([i don't have feelings])
So, canning.

I've been doing this for a couple years and this season I went full fucking bore. We've done tomato sauce pretty regularly because okay I am Italian, when it hits August a klaxon starts going off in my head all

RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE RED SAUCE

until I get off my ass and buy thirty pounds of tomatoes and stick em through the grinder. The canning started out secondary to the sauce making, simply because we didn't have the storage space for that much sauce. And now it is becoming our fucking way of life.

I actually got my shit together this season, and I don't think a SINGLE FUCKING WEEKEND went by without me sticking some sort of vegetable in a mason jar and boiling the fuck out of it. Don't even want to think about how much in the hole I am to the farmers market but whatever whatever that's what it's there for.

ANYWAY

Did the last batch of canning/etc this weekend, because the green beans are fucking done and I had to get one last batch in. Of course, it was a giant clusterfuck, because I was due for it, but I made it through because I AM THE CANNING CHAMPION /VICTORY LAP


KICKING IT OLD SCHOOOOOOOOL )

Semi-relatedly, I finally found my scanner cables so I can do my con reports yay!
attilatehbun: ([ohfuckohfuckohfuck])
DANGIT LUSH STUFF WHY AREN'T YOU HERE YET WHY ARE YOU STUCK IN SEATTLE WHY CAN'T I HAVE MY GRAPEFRUIT SOAP WHY DO YOU HATE ME WHY WHY WHY

I have this like, incredible backlog of shit to talk about, memes to fill in, conventions/expos to report on, and awesome shit to take pictures of and shove in your faces--

BUT I HAVE BEEN DAWDLING MY ASS OFF.

Basically I was all like OOH OOH OOH 1000th POAST I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ~~SPECIAL~~

and then couldn't come up with anything at all and spent a whole mess of pathetic time staring at blank post windows trying to be clever and failing at life. Cause I obviously didn't want to post something wimpy and :| for my oh-so-magical 1000th POAST



/punches self in temple

Anyway I can't deal with the not posting anymore so I am being stupid and sad and pathetic in my impatience and thus, I am bringing you the world's most unoriginal

GENERIC PARTY POST

mici asked for these, so



blather )

ETA: AND NOW [livejournal.com profile] cross_the_sky WANTS THESE




even more blather )

THINGS I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD EVER LEARN;
Hand sanitizer makes a for a great remover of ink from countertops/desks

THINGS YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT;
I am having a tub of olives for lunch

THINGS THAT ARE POSSIBLY RELEVANT;
Children's Crusade #2 is coming out tomorrow and I'm about to pee my damn pants. a;lskdfuaien I have a persistent urge to write some porn before that time. this is a plan y/n?


attilatehbun: ([CREEPER])
MAIN THING:
It has come once again, the time of year at which I start blatting at great length and volume:

SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX SPX

For those of you that a) are new or 2) have tuned me out the last several years:
SPX is the Small Press Expo and it is basically my favorite con/nerd-thing of all time. It is this teeny little con in half of a hotel conference room and it is filled to the brim with independent comics and artists and general amazingness. It has webcomics and published comics and (my personal favorite) heaps and heaps of mini comics.

It has some truly excellent panels.
It has the Ignatz Awards (for celebrating independent comics).
It has hilarious and wonderful crafts.
It allowed my friend the joy of mustache ownership, just for a day.
It has brought me the mini comics "Is It Bacon?" and "Things I Have Stolen From Second Graders".
It has allowed me to meet Kate Beaton and John Campbell and to possibly mildly traumatize John Allison.
It has allowed me to squeak inanely at Bryan Lee O'Malley and get a sketch of Steph from Lost at Sea.
It lead to my discovery of [livejournal.com profile] heypais.
It has brought into my life the horror of the infamous unicorn porn (that I must get around to scanning so as to better facilitate the spreading of trauma everywhere).
It has had, and will have again, a table for my friends' comic cough cough

This year it is even going to have an Animation Showcase, for the very first time ever! I don't really know what that is going to entail, but yay anyway!


Basically I just love every single thing about this con and I wish I could shrink it down and clutch it to my bosom and let it never ever end ever. This is going to be my fourth year volunteering and I LOVE IT SOOOOOO. I am also not going to be shutting up about it, fyi.


So. You know. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE ANYWHERE IN THE DC AREA THE SECOND WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER (9/10 & 9/11) YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GOOOOO. IT IS NOT EVEN EXPENSIVE!

Even if you don't want to excessively nerd out with me, it is an excellent thing to go to if you like things that are awesome and fun.

which you should /stares excessively without blinking




OTHER THINGS:
In Things I Never Thought I'd Experience Enough To Learn: Fedex signing devices are so much nicer and smoother than UPS signing devices.

I really must get around to fixing my iPod because apparently I am desperately craving listening to some Mahler? And all of it is on my other iPod.

Now that my Attack of Unfortunate Paranoia is apparently over, I think I am going to go back non-FO. I do not really like this entirely FO thing. It makes my nose wrinkle. So, just as soon as I have a free Saturday to go back through every freaking entry, yeah.

HAVE A STOLEN MEME WHY NOT

The Fifteen Pictures Meme!
- Post ten-fifteen of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
- NO CAPTIONS! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
- They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
- You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.


I will admit to cheating a little, inasmuch as I am currently on my work computer and there is pretty much nothing on it except graphics I've done for my company and some random skating shit that I haven't gotten around to uploading yet. So I'm pulling shit off of my photobuckets/etc, but it's all stuff I've saved in the past and it's my primary rightclicksave spot anyway. There's been no new googling or anything of the sort.

ANYWAY )


I went to the Kutztown Fair this weekend and it is a lot more tacky and commercial than I remember it being but a) that was 15 years ago and 2) I still got to see a llama. I did not get to pet said llama, because it was hot and grumpy and did not even want the ice-cream cone feed snack I was offering it, but I did get to go LLAMA LLAMA LLAMA LLAMA and take this:


I also got a pickle on a stick, and really. Everything's better with pickle on a stick.

In other news I am fairly certain I am going to bake alive in my own skin and I spend every waking second cursing my decision to move to this godforsaken swamp.
attilatehbun: (Default)
My relentless paranoia is currently at war with my overwhelming neurotism/anal tendencies, so I am trying to distract myself with a meme.

But I can't fucking find one. Not even one I've done a zillion times.




So I made this instead. (all credit belongs to [livejournal.com profile] silver_paired, I just made it go.)




Edit: Um um um, okay yes please
