tagged by notalwaysweak, tagging nobody because brain doesn’t want to come up with eleven new questions (f-f-f-faaaaaiiiiiil)
1. What music do you listen to when you’re sad?
I don’t often match music to mood. Like, I don’t really have sad music or happy music, although if I had sad music, it would probably involve Patsy Cline.
2. Who was your first celebrity crush?
Either Indiana Jones or Lieutenant Commander Data.
3. Do you have a secret you’ll take with you to the grave?
Haha this is so ominous. YES, ‘TWAS I WHO BURIED THE CORPSES ‘NEATH YOUR APPLE TREE, but nah, probably not. There are things I’m not really comfortable telling people, but I’m not sure those are secrets so much as weird passing thoughts that will eventually come out in fiction.
4. If you had to choose between cheese and chocolate and never have the other again, which would you choose?
5. What fictional universe would you most like to visit?
Is this a permanent thing or just a brief trip? Because if I had to live there, it would be Pokémon or maaaaaybe Avatar (/LoK), but for a trip, Marvel (616) or Mass Effect.
NOPE. NOPE I forgot Midde-earth. This is almost as bad as the cheese/chocolate question.
6. What’s your comfort book that you’ve reread til the cover’s falling off?
I’m really not sure you can understand how many layers of tape are involved in keeping this book together until you’ve held it in your hands, but:
7. What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
There aren’t many flavors I don’t like, but I prefer vanilla bean to French vanilla and Ben & Jerry’s Milk ‘n’ Cookies to chocolate chip cookie dough.
8. Do you believe in astrology?
I do not, there is no romance in my soul.
9. What is your favorite species of dinosaur?
10. Cats or dogs?
11. What would you eat for breakfast on the morning of the apocalypse (assuming that you knew it was coming)?
Probably a burrito and ice cream, maybe bacon if I decided to break my vegetarian streak, definitely the souls of the unbelievers with a side of bacon if it was an apocalypse of my own crafting.
petition for deconnick & wilson to co-write a carol/kamala team-up miniseries
FROM WHAT KELLY SURE SAID LAST NIGHT SHE AND G. WILLOW WILSON WOULD BE OPEN TO IT—everyone should send emails top firstname.lastname@example.org asking for it (she’s assured us that marvel will LOVE her for encouraging this. It’s POSSIBLE there was sarcasm involved, but WHO CAN TELL? Better to err on the side of action that may result in Carol+Kamala team ups, I say ;)
Carol Corps, I think we have our marching orders! Marvel can be reached not only by emailing email@example.com—you can also tweet them via @Marvel or write them at Marvel Entertainment LLC, 135 W. 50th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY, 10020. Let’s let ‘em know what we want.
Magic: The Gathering. Been there, done that, sold off all my cards ages ago. Have fun, though! :)
thanks!! it’s a blast, i just have to keep holding myself back from buying more cards than i need, especially now that they’ve changed the standard rotation.
washing machine!! i counted, i only have to do four more loads of laundry between now and when i move. my first load of laundry in my own personal washer is going to be whites—towels, sheets, rags. i’m going to watch return of the jedi while it runs and eat ben & jerry’s as sophie tries to nest in the clean laundry. it’s gonna be great.
A long time ago andthenisay tagged me to share six facts about myself, here are six facts:
+ When I was ten, I went with my mom to see the Chincoteague pony swim and auction. Ponies! Swimming!
+ I recently got SUPER SUPER hooked on Magic: The Gathering and it’s the worst, there are reasons I spent the past decade avoiding trading card games but also it’s the best, literally the only thing I want to do all day long is play MTG.
+ Moving in less than a month! My new place is about four minutes from work, it’s adorable and gets lots of sunshine and has a balcony and a WASHING MACHINE, and since I lived where I am now for five years when I had planned to move out in six months, I might very well die in this new apartment.
+ I really can’t handle my eyes being touched, which is why I wear glasses and not contacts.
+ I’m an only child, possibly some of you know this?
+ I ended up in a conversation with a coworker this past week where we were talking about weddings, and after she described this massive, gorgeous affair with a ton of guests that was her dream ceremony, I told her that even though marriage is definitely not on my Life Plan Worksheet, I wouldn’t mind getting married if absolutely nobody I knew was around and I had a stranger to perform the ceremony, because I can’t imagine a wedding with a ton of people LOOKING AT ME, there are no words to describe the horror I feel at being the center of attention in that way. I have not had a birthday party since I was eleven or twelve for this reason.
