X-Men: A good ol' disemboweling

Halloween and quizy things

Friday night was the KAOS Halloween party and I went as The Grudge. It was badarse and there were compliments on the creepy, but alas I don't have any other photos than that one of me creeping at the door of the LFoD.

On Saturday night we did our now annual horror movie Halloween with candy and delicious and scary ourselves silly. The movie selection this year was Mirrors, The Ward, Hide & Seek, and Skeleton Key. (Our warm-up during the week was Simpson's Treehouse of Horror episodes and Scream 4.)

In the middle of all this stuff we had a girly tea-party. Because.

I am 172 centimeters tall.
This makes me taller than 25.1% of men and 85.7% of women.



I was having this discussion yesterday with Lara about how I always think that I'm average height or just below average, probably because most of my friends are at least a half an inch taller than me and because both of my parents are taller. I still wish I was taller though. I feel more like my 'proper' height in a pair of high heels, which is why I don't really like wearing flats. (The 'living with people who skew the average' is the reason I always think of myself as still being flat-chested when I'm a C. I blame living with three girls who were DDs and above.)

Alison is doing NaNo right now, you guys! SHE'S A FOOL!

Silent Hill, not actually all that silent it turns out.

Lewi has come over to visit Lara (and us a little bit, but mostly Lara!) and he's teaching me how to play Silent Hill like the n00b I am. Which involves a lot of swearing at the screen when the monsters show up, insulting their mothers and sexual proclivities. (Turns out, when monster killing, I turn into a raging misogynistic who yells things at the screen like "die, you fucking whore beast from hell! FUCKING EAT MY BAT!" Which is... a little concerning for my inner mental state, I'm sure.)

I have discovered two things about this game so far. First that, oh my god, is there a shit load of walking around. Down streets, in buildings, walking walking walking gimme more monsters! (So I can panic.) And secondly, the protagonist that you play, James? A complete and utter walking Doesn't Deserve To Live. Oh, so stupid! So stupid! Let me count the ways.

Collapse )

I might understand all this if he were some super cool marine dude before coming to Silent Hill, but he was a regular freaking guy! He has no badassary excuses!

Also, at some angles, he looks like Edward Cullen. No one else seems to see this, but I do. I SEE IT. And it means my desire to help him remain alive is even less. Damn he and I being the same person!

The underground fire is still burning and will continue to do so for a predicted 250 more years

Wikipedia articles on things that I think are interesting.

Why? Uh, I don't know. Because they're sitting in my bookmarks of late and I'm sharing like the kind soul I pretend to be?

Things I would have posted had I remembered their names: the spark plug fossil, the Egyptian scientific clock, the bug that eats the fishes tongue and replaces it. Yeah, you all know what those things are, right, and I can't be bothered to Google

Something nice and something nasty

(So it's like Christmas and DEATH rolled into one.)

Nasty but awesome: Why hello there CREEPIEST CREATURE IN THE WORLD. The words 'parasitic crustacean' give me shivers even without the description.

Nice: I don't know if this will work well, since when we were watching it it was all jumpy and annoying, but hopefully it does...

It's the first 'episode' from the series PG Porn which the director says is 'for people who love everything about porn... except the sex.' So have some Nathan Fillion being an awesomely bad porn actor with Aria Giovanni. Don't worry: this is suggestive but still worksafe.
