i need to watch The King Of Kong to get it into the mail, but the Venture Bros is about to start as i watch Heath Ledger being all cute and goofy at the end of Brothers Grimm-- i'm apparently all kinds of geeky.
On Saturday, after almost a year, I finally understood tensors. A primer. Not bad for someone who had a stroke ten years that wiped clean his entire understanding of mathematics, although I still have problems with basic arithmetic.
Paul Weller is back on tour and will be in L.A. for two shows at the beginning of September, and I'm such a geek that I insisted my boyfriend and I make our vacation plans around it. It's SO EXCITING for Weller that he is going to get to see me in the front row again!
I won a small but passionate argument about Old Earth relics in Frank Herbert's Dune universe by reminding my friend that when Sheana and the ghola Duncan fled in the no-ship, they took Mother Superior's stasis-preserved Van Gogh with them.
I played D&D on Saturday. The best part was probably when my character cast a spell called Arc of Lightning, which invokes a bolt of lightning between two bad guys, also hitting anyone in between. I did 37 HP of damage to any bad guy caught in that bolt (except one that made his reflex save - but he still got half damage).
Every time I come back to this thread, or see this thread on the front page, or think about this thread, the Viking Party and mead overindulgence makes me giggle. And not in a cute girly way, either, but in a big ol' snorty guffaw sort of way.
