I came home from Gencon to laundry, exhaustion and a flavor text assignment, which mostly explains my recent lack of posting. Until I get around to a real post, here's a meme I swiped from [personal profile] yhlee:

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
— Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

It warms my heart to see a LotR reference. Even if it is in the Corrections notices of the New York Times.

My Yahoo email page has this little box that displays headlines of various catagories (World, Sports, Entertainment, etc) and I have mine set to local. And so it was this morning that I was treated to: This is a test headline (Lexington Clipper Herald. I was amused.

Naturally I had to click to find out what it led to! I was suspecting a blank page, but instead there was a whole big chunk of Lorem ipsum text, which I am storing behind the cut in case I someday I need some. You never know.
This is a test LJ cut )

What can I say?

I'll have a real entry soon, but I just had to giggle over this.

I have stunning news.

For reasons currently mysterious to me, the Chamber of Commerce of York, Nebraska is obsessed with marshmallow Peeps. I cannot explain it. But if you go here on their website you can find not only the Adopt-A-Peep order form, but the rules for the Nebraska Peep Show II. From the pdf of the rules:

Enter your most creative work of art using Marshmallow PEEPS. You could win a medal, a Chamber Check and bragging rights. There are several categories and a chance for the public to pick your entry as the PEEPles Choice Winner!

I'll admit the LotP poster on the webpage is cute, but---PEEPles Choice? The pun, it burns!

On the other hand, I swell with pride to know that I live in a state that isn't afraid to hold an art show in a beer garden.

By way of [livejournal.com profile] yhlee:

- Describe me in one word--just one single word. Positive or negative.

- Leave your word in a comment, before looking at what words others have used.

- Copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people describe you when limited to one word. [Totally optional!]

Today Mason ("Daigotsu Usharo" on various L5R forums) sent me a link to a fake L5R card he's shopped up. I'm not sure what made me laugh more--the card, or his supporting text. But I was eating lunch at my desk when I saw it, and my peals of laughter brought a number of my coworkers to my desk, wanting to know what was so funny.

Sadly, Shawn probably won't let me canonize Daigotsu Usharo's House of Peacocks. Even if it *is* no sillier than Yoritomo Buntaro.

This is not being a good week for me. My sleep is still off-kilter from training, I have encountered a number of problems during the times I have made it into work during the day, my electric space heater is missing, and it's been rainy and gloomy for days. Also, I'm not going to the tournament in KC after all. And then there is that other thing that I'm not going to talk about.

However, life has not been all bad. First, and most delightfully, [livejournal.com profile] koshindou posted these drawings on his deviantArt account. The two characters are from the Exalted game he ran for our room last Gencon, and looking at them makes me want to giggle. And play Exalted, but that's not going to happen any time soon so moving along...

Also, today I discovered that I could get Girl Genius as an rss feed to my LJ. Bwaaahaha! I am somewhat behind in the story, having been following it via the published books, but I'm sure I'll catch up somehow. (In the interests of full disclosure, I must admit that though I like Agatha just fine, my heart belongs to Klaus Wulfenbach. This may or may not be influenced by my desire for my own personal army of Jaegermonsters.)

And finally, [livejournal.com profile] yhlee pointed out this nifty little personality-via-art quiz. I cannot give its conclusion much credence--no one at work thinks that I "do not like to argue"--but I still found it interesting. Read more... )

So, daidoji_gisei, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 0% unique and 31% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 8

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 11% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

I'm raising my eyebrows a little at this one. For one thing, I'm going to be catty and observe that since I actually *write*, I'm somewhat different than most of the 'herd'. And the whole weirdness angle... Look, I was weird decades before it was cool. I've moved on with my life, and I'm not looking back.
