I was worried that with coming home from tour, not having a conventional job, and knowing I'm not going back to school in the fall, there was a slight chance I would become a couch potato with a complete lack of motivation, but it's already clear that potato-dom is not going to be my future.
Last night I had my first meeting with the other Zaxy girls (Zaxy.com is the blog I am going to start writing for, and the other bloggers Tara and Brittney are wonderful, fun, nerdy girls). We met up at this sausage and beer place called Shultzy's, oblivious to the fact that we arrived right in time for Trivia Night.
The intention was to get to know each other and at least attempt to have a psuedo-meeting, but it was pretty difficult to discuss anything serious with Mr. Announcer Face blaring questions about motorcycle nicknames, celebrity love scandals, and old-school video games in our ears all night. So despite our depressingly low score (a measley 3 points due to lack of participation and motorcycle knowledge) we did manage to go over the exciting events we have lined up in the next few months, including a Zaxy sleepover, podcast interviews, and the festivities surrounding PAX that we're going to be attending.
I am a relatively well-informed nerd, but I have operated in the same niche nerd bubble for most of my life, so I am kind of excited to be broadening my horizons. Going to a gaming conference and writing for a blog that isn't focused around Harry Potter or Lost or YouTube News is going to be a challenge for me, but it's going to be fun and I am looking forward to the new experiences. And the parties. Apparently PAX has lots of parties. And a Tri-Wizard Drinking Tournament.
Speaking of new things, I just finished OH MY GOD A SPIDER JUST CRAWLED ACROSS MY MONITOR. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. MY MONITOR!! WHO DOES THAT.
I just went to grab a tissue and now it's GONE. THE SPIDER IS GONE. Probably walking around on my desk or down in the carpet or ON ME.
What I was going to say before was that I just finished Season 1 of Buffy, but I don't even want to talk about it anymore.
I do not like spiders. I am going to end this post now while I tear apart my computer desk area trying to find and destroy him.
I will leave you, today, with proof of why I love both webcomics and my mother. Below is a photo of my Mom in the hat she bought this weekend at a street fair, and yesterday's Natalie Dee comic. No relation.
