Awesomeness Is...

A crossbow made out of Lincoln-logs that shoots laser arrows.

Yeah, it was made by the five-year-old who was humming Darth Vader's theme song.


Fact of the Day

Teaching a four-year-old the skill of deduction is not easy.

Tip/Quote of the Day

"Don't eat basghetti, eat ice cream!"

The same five-year-old who was humming Darth Vader's theme song.



Anyhow, it is one of my favorite things in magazines and such when they have a 'Caption the picture' thing.

So I decided to do my own. And for my first one, I'd like to do the a picture of Jumpy Thug, from Batman Begins.

All you have to do is think of something (if you want to) and put it in a comment.

Note: The lines from the movie to not count.

Have a great day!

The Hobbit 2012, Worse Case Scenario

So the Hobbit movie that is coming out in 2012 is something that I think about a great deal, and I, being me, think about all of the bad things they could do. I've come up with several things, and will post some of them. This is my first one and, quite possibly the worst.

The Hobbit 2012, Worse Case Scenario Number 1: Cellian Murphy as Thranduil.
If you don't know who they are, Google it.

No Comment



So, I'd like to make up, so to speak, for my last look-alike post by doing something a little less...uh...whatever that last look-alike post was.

Quote of the Day

"I like this bird!"

~A.K.~ On working with her Thanksgiving turkey.


Tip of the Day

Your butter will melt faster if it is not surrounded with frozen celery.

Yes, I was making dressing today.


Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!



Well, well, it is my Kae's birthday! O_O I really shouldn't freak out, as past experience has proved, that for Kae, getting older is definitely a good thing.

Ah, I've gotta say it. She didn't always mean this much to me. Naw, is the past we really didn't get along. So, hell that it was, I won't go into that. The important thing is that now we do get along...
... general...

We are older now, and we are cool and we have more fun around ourselves than we do around anyone else.

Yeah, that's us.

I really don't know what to say. She knows I love her and I guess that is about the most important thing.


P.S. She told me she had to see all of the pictures I want to use on my post, but, heehee haaaa, she is asleep. :D

And oh! I kinda promised her these.

Happy Birthday, Kae!


Wednesday, November 24, 2010


Thanksgiving is pretty much almost here and we are having a bunch of relatives over. A bunch of relatives. But anyhow. I'd like to share with you a few quotes that have been running around my head all day.

''Alright everyone, gird your loins."

"Gentlemen, it is time to spread the word. And the word is...panic."

"They are coming...we cannot get out...!"

I love them, really I do...


For the Night Writer

So, today I would like to take a moment to honor a friend of mine whom I've mentioned here before. Yes, I speak of the Night Writer.

I was thinking of what I could do, and then I remembered how happy it made me on my birthday when I received a card with someone I liked/admired on it. So I thought that would be nice to do for my friend.

So, Night Writer. This is for you. Happy birthday.

I'm positive this is not exhaustive. And it is not any much of a particular order.

I know this picture is of Ra's Al Ghul, but it kinda stands for the Awesome Liam Neeson in general.

I wasn't sure who was you favorite...

Again, I wasn't sure who was your favorite. And if I did, I don't think I'd have the heart to just do Buzz Lightyear.

This picture has really good, uh, image quality. Yeah, image quality. I thought you might appreciate that.

(In case you can't tell, this next guy is a big Austrian dude...)

This picture represents Summer Glau in general.

Ah, he's cool. Why not have him twice.

He's cool, too. Why not have him twice, too.

This one is from Kae.

Ah, why not a third time?

Grin of the Week

It is Monday. :)

And for the Grin of the Week I'd like to do, well, two grins.

The first one is for Kae. I wanted to do a grin for her and I asked her to pick one out.

And Kae, being Kae, had to do something a bit, well, Kaeish.

(Trust me, it's smiling.)

And secondly, I'd like to do one for my friend The Night Writer.

(Trust me, it's a smile.)

The famous Night Writer XD Grin. Okayokay, he didn't invent it or anything, he just uses it a lot. XD XD XD

Aragorn was Wrong...

Aragorn once said that there was always hope...

Aragorn never met Kae.

If she calls Denathor the "Torch guy" one more time !!!!!!! I'm gonna smack her over the hear with The Return of the King. Paperback, of course...



OK. I am sure there is some sorta law about not making funny pictures using ones relatives...

And I just broke it.

Geordi does not wish to be assimilated...

Last night we watched the Star Trek TNG episode, "I Borg."

I'd been wanting to see it for the longest time. Almost a year, I think. And last night I finally got to see it. It instantly went to the upper half of my Top-Five Favorite TNG Episodes List.

You know, you watch it, and by the time it is over, nothing is left of you but a little lump of warm mush. I.e. That was about the sweetest thing I've ever watched.

I've got to say it. Hugh is about the cutest Borg I've ever seen.

That was the all-time most touching Star Trek show I've ever see.

I also loved how it had lots of Geordi and Guinan, my two favorite TNG characters (I'll say more on that mater in another post).

Aw, it was great.

And so in the end it is true:

"Resistance is...not futile?"



Yes, I keep a toothpick inside my mechanical pencil...

If that isn't uncanny, nothing is.

Should I Be Worried...

Does it mean I watch to much Burn Notice if I took a picture of something rather than writing it down...?

Hey, at least I used a camera and not a cellphone...

A Lesson in Humility

A lesson in humility is staring at a wasp thing that is trying to land on a ceiling-fan light-bulb and thinking "Dumb bug..."... only to realize that you had just blinded yourself by staring at it...

This actually happened...

Quote/Tip of the Day

"If you ever have a world, plan ahead! Don't eat it."

The holographic juggler from Star Trek: "The cost of living"


Grin of The Week

This one is for Kae. She is a big Transformers fan.

This is Starscream, a Decepticon. The sad thing is, is that the reason he is smiling so broadly, is because his leader just fell into a trap...

Yeah, the Decepticons are the bad guys...

Jay to Kae: "You get nasty so fast."

Kae: "Most people do, when you dump cold water on them."


Quote of the Day.

I heard the most amazing thing the other day, whilst I was halfheartedly overhearing two old guys talking.

Now when you read this, imagine a very s l o w deliberate southern ascent.

Okay, so I don't think this one is as good as my last look-alike post.

But still, you gotta admit...

Is this awkward, or is it just me?

A Law of Kae's

Kae: "OK. Law of Blowing Kisses, you have to be at least several yards away."

Okay, we were doing dishes, she made me happy, I wasn't going to actually kiss her...

Grin of the Week

I didn't forget.

On the contrary, I've been looking forward to this all week!

It's time for the Grin of the Week, or, as Kae so ingeniously rephrased it, The Monday Grin.

This smile has to be one (ONE) of my all time favorites in movie history, due to the context.

See, seriously messed up as this guy is, in this moment he is at his best. His very very best. He had just been outsmarted, blithely outsmarted. But rather than being mad or upset that he was tricked, he was proud of his student who had tricked him.

It's like one of my favorite parts in the movie.

Character: Henri Ducard

Movie: Batman Begins


Friendly Advice

Okay. I'm sure you've all had to deal with you of some one you know doing something less than smart at some point or another.

We all have.

So today, I am going to give you a few tips on dealing with stupidity.

Okayokay, "stupidity" might have been a bit rough.

(Much better.)

First of all, if it was you who did it, don't, and I repeat NEVER beat yourself up about it.

Being sarcastic? It at least shows that the situation was merely annoying, and not serious.

If it was a friend, don't, I repeat, NEVER beat them up about it.

That it just cruel.

No, take more of a silent approach to it.

And if any situation is that bad, make being stupid the preferred option.
