talkingsoup: (RP schizophrenia)
The time has come, my friends. I am a writer. I play Pokemon and other silly video games. I have participated in online LJ RP games. I have long discussions about various sci-fi shows and watch things like Star Trek, Farscape, Doctor Who and Firefly. I respect William Shatner. I watch anime with a somewhat religious fervor at times. I have conversations about the merits of certain weapons, the various histories and lifestyles of the Middle Ages, and complain about historical or logical inaccuracies in movies concerning the era. I have been to a Renn Faire. I have gone to sci-fi and fantasy cons, as well as anime cons. I read comic books, webcomics and manga. I play WoW. I collect Magic Cards. I'm an amateur astronomer and I listen to shortwave radio. I can readily quote Star Wars.

In short, I am a full blown nerd. And the time has now come to tackle the last bastion of nerddom, to venture into the fearsome, Mountain Dew-soaked, Cheeto-stained basement in the nether regions of the House of Nerd.

Yes, my friends. I speak of Dungeons and Dragons.

I am, as we speak, in the process of building a character and will soon start a campaign involving my similarly nerdy Ithaca friends. I am learning all about Spot Checks, Ability Modifiers, and D20s.

With this, I say my final farewell to the world of coolness, fashion and all semblance of sanity. Farewell, Lady Gaga, Eat, Pray, Love, 24, and True Blood. Goodbye, Justin Bieber and Louis Vuitton. Auf wiedersehn, mainstream media. To make a nerd quote, "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." I go now to the Land of Fun, the Plane of Silliness, and the House of Nerd, and never shall I return to hipness, coolness and popularity. Good night...and good luck.

Just be glad I'm not LARPing.

So I was playing Pandemic II yesterday. And I get everyone except Madagascar. Bastards close their ports as ever. So I start ignoring the screen and figure I'll just annihilate the rest of the world.

I look back like ten minutes later and I see this:




Oh my god. What. What. IT'S MAGIC. IT'S FUCKING MAGIC. THEIR PORTS WERE CLOSED. HOW DID THAT SHIT GET IN?

So now the whole fucking world is infected and it's all THIS BEAUTIFUL TOXIC SHADE OF RED and I start buying things like Hemorrhaging and Insanity (LOL! I LOVE PARASITES) and soon they're all dropping like flies, but it's a parasite so it takes about a year. And I look back awhile later and:




THAT'S RIGHT MOTHERFUCKER! JUST AS FUCKING PLANNED! HAHAHAHHAHA TAKE THAT MADAGASCAR!!

And then for the first time ever:




WHAT NOW, BITCH? WHAT NOW? I JUST WON THAT SHIT!

WHERE IS YOUR GOD

NOW?!?!



Oh, and the name of the disease?

Edward Cullen.



P.S. LOL

Somebody somewhere is playing Pandemic II :|

Swine Flu has a really terrible ring to it. "Pig flu" would almost be better; the word swine just has so many negative connotations. Which, I guess, makes it a little appropriate, but still. Swine. Swine. I dunno.

So I heard about this on Thursday or Friday, I think, back when it was like "oh dear, a handful of people have died of this super-crazy ninja virus", back when it was still in Mexico, but now I guess it's in America (NYC, specifically) and New Zealand.

Clearly we didn't close our ports in time.

And of course, at this point the question on everyone's mind is--how bad is it gonna be? Mine and the recent generations have had a lot of scares. So is this gonna be SARS bad, with the CDC preaching fire and brimstone (they already are, in this case) but with the death toll actually very low? West Nile Virus bad, where it's everywhere and anyone can get it, but good luck actually dying? Anthrax-in-the-mail bad? Or is it gonna be AIDS/tuberculosis/Black Death bad?

Only one thing is certain in these uncertain times--that we can rest assured that, no matter how bad it gets, Madagascar at least will be just fine. Paranoid fuckers.

I love this show. And I usually hate reality TV.

Julie and I have been coming up with names for all of them--since I can never remember their real names.

So far we've got:

Crazy Train
Village People
Country Club
Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong
Chicken Dance

That's all we've got so far. Try and guess which ones they are.
