Just two more days till Blogathon! I just found out that my two youngest nieces will be upstairs at my mom's house for the next few days, so that sort of kills my "day of solitude" plan for Saturday, but oh well.

I've gotten some awesome pledges so far, THANK YOU GUYS!

I probably won't post here again until after the 'thon, gotta save up the ideas for those posts!

If you've wandered over to this blog via the link on my blogathon page, hi! I just switched to this format, if you're looking for the older entries, check out the link in the sidebar.

Happy Blogathon, everyone!

I look forward to the day when my work is doing what I love, not my way of financing the occasional chance to do what I love.

Nerds Unite!

I haven't got the energy to post about Mexico yet, so instead, I'll give you this super-duper nerdy conversation with Kelly!

WARNING! Contains Superman spoilers! And X3. And stuff.

(It may help if you know that I just asked how Lois Lane could be pregnant with a kid that was Superman's, but she thought was Richard's. If she's that bummed about him leaving, why is she off making babies with someone new within weeks?)

Crystal: so it's like... Superman leaves, and three days later, Evil Chick hops in bed with Cyclops?

Kelly: Exactly!

Paradoxikel: Here is my take on it:

Crystal: "Oh, boo hoo, I am sad, but I am going to steal this guy from jean grey!"

Kel: Sman leaves. Lois is depressed, drinking a

Kel: Cyclops is all, dude, my girlfriend just died.

Crystal: rofl

Kel: Lois passes him the whiskey.

Crystal: um, wait, she killed him fist.

Crystal: this is why you shouldn't mix DC and Marvel

Kel: No, Jean Grey "died" in movie 2!
Kel: So it was a while back!

Crystal: OH! Okay, okay.

Kel: It all fits!

Kel: Sman leaves, Jean Grey crushed by tsunami...

Kel: Lois and Cyclops roll in the hay.

Crystal: but wait, where does Wolverine fit in again?

K: I think they don't make leather in Metropolis.

K: So he couldn't come.

Crystal: Shouldn't the kid be able to burn stuff with his eyes either way?

K: Or maybe he was hiding out in the very Central Park looking place.

K: The kid was a germophobe freak until Sman came back!

Crystal: Or maybe Wolverine just has a thing against Lois because she's really dating Will Turner

K: Hmmm.

are we there yet?

Just 6 days till Cancun! We’re technically leaving on Thursday to drive up to St Louis, and then flying out at Way Too Early a.m. on Friday. I am so freaking excited just to get away! I’ve been narrowing down the giant stack of books to the ones I want to take with me, searched my closet for non-falling apart flip-flops, and now all I really need to do is pack!

Work has been so busy lately, and I’ve had so much going on that I haven’t really had any free time, so just laying around on a white sand beach, sipping (free!) drinks, and taking in the turquoise blue ocean sounds like heaven.

Less than a week till I’m here!

The hotel is pretty much sold out tonight, which sucks for me, but luckily I’m off tomorrow. Christa and I are planning to relive our childhood by going out to the water park, and then seeing Superman on the IMAX, which should be pretty cool.

I had a dream last night that I got a giant tattoo of Wolverine from X-Men on my butt. And that I was discussing it with James Lipton from Inside the Actors Studio, because he had just gotten a tattoo, too. (And if you watch the show, you know that’d be a big deal, since his wife won’t let him get one.) I have some seriously random, nerdy dreams sometimes.

This makes me very happy. I've been wanting an arch nemesis for a while now, so this means that not only do I get one soon, but I win! Woo!
