On Libraries, Oddities, and Idiots...

Weird things happen. I of all people should know that. Ever heard of MLIA? That is my life.

So I shouldn't be shocked at a trip to get schoolbooks. But I am. Why? Get this: looking up books on cloning, I find a Star Wars book. Which is all fine and wonderful, but....WHY was it catalogued into the computer as a Non-Fiction book? Is George Lucas hiding something here?

Imagine the shock and horror I felt when I clicked on some seemingly benign title of YA "Nonfiction" to find out....the first words in the summary were "Jedi Master Yoda."

Ok, I'll admit. I couldn't stop laughing. The lady sitting at the table next to me was giving me the weirdest look. Don't worry, I'm used to it.

And then there's the idiots. They're everywhere.

Here's a hint you may be wearing too much cologne: I WAS GAGGING HALFWAY ACROSS THE LIBRARY! Thanks for ruining my sense of smell.

Guys, it doesn't make you hot, it makes you slightly repulsive. (When a girl says you took her breath away, it was probably the because she literally couldn't breath through your odor. Just sayin'.)

FEAR MAH CATFINDIN' POWERS!

O(≧∇≦)O


WOOT! I just OWNED in Zelda! Ok, not-so-much. Video games will never be my good point, but I JUST FOUND ALL TWENTY CATS! WITHOUT GIVING UP!
(Ok, so they were cats in the video game, not cats dressed up as Link. Technicalities.)

It's a side "Game" in Twilight Princess.  Needless to say, I'm quite happy I completed it.

I should probably quit for the night. STUPID GAMES! SO ADDICTING!

And yes, the AWESOMENESS OF CAPS LOCK does not display my mighty (non)WIN!

Christmas, I have a word for you.

Three, actually: Cut. It. Out.

First off: I have finals, which I'm currently working myself into a frenzy to study for. (Did I ever tell you how much I hate physics? Here's a hint: a freaking ton.)

Second: I only have a present for one of my friends. And NO idea what I'm going to get everyone else. I'm so dead! GOSHDARNIT SAINT NICHOLAS! Why did you have to set everyone's expectations so high?!

Third: someone PLEASE make some new Christmas carols. After a week-long battle with "All I Want for Christmas," I'm ready to go ninja on the next caroler's sorry visit!

Fourth: I'm going to stop blogging, turn on some normal music, and continue studying. Stay in the Christmas spirit, everyone...just hang in there. We can all do it. And remember, Christmas isn't all about the presents....I don't care what every one of those darn department store ads say. It's not. Even the etymology of the name insists on it's true meaning. Go. Look. It. Up.

It's the reason I never say Happy Holidays. So instead of giving everyone presents, here's a giant HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS! And a quick prayer I can fit everything in this season.

Sincerely,

Oh my Holy Roman Empire....

Hetalia. Love it, hate it, OBSESS over it (yeah, we've all seen/done that before) it's everywhere.

I can't say I'm overly fangirling out over this like I am over the Doctor, but it's pretty cool. As a German/Italian, I must say....I find this very ironic. As an American, I say....Cheeseburger?

(Ok, on a side note, I've noticed that EVERY TIME someone from America comes back from visiting another a country, the first thing they want is a cheeseburger. It's true. I did it. Tony Stark did it.)

I've got to say, my favorite character is Prussia. For sure. And as I DON'T SUPPORT YAOI, I like the Hungary/Prussia pairing. (Omgfaint an anime fangirl who doesn't like yaoi? Be kind, rewind.) In response, I say: yes. I don't. I'll save that rant for later, for now just: FEAR THE FRYING PAN. I will use it on you.

But Hetalia's got some awesome iPod videos. If Apple had any clue what was good for them (which they don't, look at the computers they produce) they would use it as an official iPod commercial! I would jump off the couch right now and ditch my non-apple-istic beliefs to go get an iPod!



And I'm sure I'm not the only one in this boat. If I am, go ahead, tell me. I'll abandon ship right now....maybe. Not.

Bottom line, since I'm rambling again?

Cheeseburgers are awesome and Hetalia proves it.

Sincerely,
The-American (aka. Atari.)

Dear Zelda,

I know you kind of need me, with the evil dudes trying to destroy your kingdom and all that jazz, but SERIOUSLY? Maybe some sort of token of your thanks would be appreciated. Like, I don't know, a bathroom break every so often?! Maybe a nap. Yeah, that sounds good.

And a LESS ANNOYING SIDEKICK. One that doesn't try to physically injure me when I don't listen? Or mock me at every turn? (If I get told to "Listen!" one more time, I SWEAR the sword is going through that little pipsqueak of a pixie!)

Plus those stupid Redead? You've got to be kidding me. If that's not enough to make a grown man cry, I don't know what is.

Oh yeah, I did it all in tights. Does that count as bonus points? I do believe so.

Sincerely,

"I'd call you a genius, except I'm in the room."

Because my number one obsession is....

Well, geniuses in general. But, even as a born-and-raised Trekker (or Trekkie. Doesn't matter to me.) I have a giant-total-freaking-obsession with....



Yeah....umm...self-explanatory? (And my first non-rant blog in awhile!)

I think I'm in love with the show...even after only a month. Yeah, you heard me. A month. I ADORE IT. It's AMAZING.

So yeah. I have a life outside of ranting. A life outside of geekery? Now that's debatable.

Sincerely,

OMGWTHBBQ!

I don't know, it's just been in my head all day.

So let's relate it to another...nah, I've already done enough rants. Oh, fine.

POKEMON!

They're out to rule the world. THEY'RE INSANE.

By the way, Espeon is my favorite, right next to Rapidash.

No, but seriously. Ever heard of Lavender Town Syndrome? It's COMPLETELY freaky!!!
And by the way, it's totally fake.

Maybe it's just me, because I was one of the few Otakus to not watch Pokemon at a young age and one of the first to be completely weirded out by it.

I only own one Pokemon game on the Wii. And it's not that great.

Sincerely,
OMGWTHBBQ (AKA. The Atari)
I just can't stop saying it.
