    Ayyy~ My name is Kerri. I am a 31-year-old dweeb who lives in Atlanta with my 32-year old dork husband Mark, our small lady Luna, and our blue tabby Link.

    When I’m not spending time with my cuties, I’m usually absorbed in one hobby or another. My hobbies include, but are not limited to, drawing, writing stories, playing video games, playing tabletop RPGs, reading regular novels and graphic novels, watching anime, cooking, decorating and organizing everything, learning new facts,  and finding new music, sci-fi, or fantasy creations to obsess over.

    Overall, I’m just livin’ and chillin’ and whatnot. I’m sending good vibrations to the world ’cause we sure as fuck need it right now (LOL)! Take care!

081: Have You Ever Licked A Lamp Post In Winter?

lmao1

 ( /)  _  (\ )
[ I’m gonna make this quick. I’m tired. ]

★彡 Finished Dragon Age: Origins a few days ago. I am queen of Ferelden, Alistair is king, and my DA:O BFF Morrigan disappeared with the baby she made with Alistair. By Bioware standards, this ending is happy. LOL. I’m pretty bummed about Morrigan leaving though. I think she had a great bond with my Grey Warden, and she did tell her that they were like sisters. This came from a character who generally hates other humans, so it is infinitely more meaningful. I can’t wait until Inquisition. Now I understand why everyone was so excited during E3 when she showed up in the trailer. Well, on to the next one. I am running around Kirkwall in DA2 at this moment. Let’s see where Hawke’s story goes.

☆彡 Mark’s job at Books-A-Million allows him to borrow books for two weeks, so he borrowed Time of Contempt for me. Yay! Glad to see Geralt and Yennefer reunited again.

★彡 Everything is Fang and nothing hurts.

☆彡 I used to get angry at myself for being calm towards people who were aggressive to me, but I am learning to accept it as one of my few redeeming qualities and stop punishing myself for it.

★彡 Shoutout to Hulu Plus for making an app for the 3DS. Now I can catch up on animes during lunch breaks. Yeah, I know. I’m a giant loser. In other news, this giant loser finally started on Mawaru Penguindrum. Pretty good so far.

☆彡 Things I Don’t Appreciate: being yelled at by a cat because I stopped petting him for 0.05 seconds.

★彡 As always, I write nonstop every month of the year except November. I’m not necessarily calling it quits for NaNoWriMo. I’m just stumped.

☆彡 My nephews were playing Ocarina of Time last weekend, and it’s just mind-boggling to think that I was around their age when I first played it. They had to experience the headache called the Water Temple…and then gave up to play Minecraft. LOL. The greatest aspect of that moment was when my sister started humming “The Lost Woods” and Jonny asked her: “How do you know Zelda?” Her response was: “Excuse me?!” I was dying! She is right though. We lived and breathed Ocarina of Time when it first came out. Jonny and Josh have no idea. Yeah, getting nostalgia just thinking about it. :’)

★彡 OYASUMI PUNPUN IS A TRAP. DON’T READ IT. (No, go ahead and read it. It’s just depressing.)

☆彡  My next splurge will be on blankets. I’m just going to buy ten different types of blankets and bury myself under those shits.

★彡 The Big Show’s return to WWE was so anticlimactic. He spent all these weeks getting bullied and then getting revenge only to come back and get bullied again for the sake of a shot at championship. I…don’t even want to talk about the route they’re taking with Kane either. Kane is one of my favorite wrestlers. He is definitely in my top 10…if not 5. So, I always get really touchy about the decisions they make with him. It’s sad. I know. I was fine with Team Hell No because it was hilarious most of the time, but I guess we’ll just have to see where this goes. I’m not even going to pay too much attention to this Big Show thing because it will likely be a rerun of the “Big Show, go do something degrading to keep your job!” type thing again. Blah, blah, blah, John Cena is a still a big dork and that’s about everything happening in WWE right now.

☆彡 I hope when Mark and I see Desolation of Smaug the theatre is empty again. The last time we went we were the only ones in the theatre and it was awesome. We made all the stupid jokes we wanted because we didn’t have to worry about disrupting anyone else. Actually, we spent a good 5-10 minutes laughing like hyenas when Thranduil pulled that dick move in the beginning. Let’s hope we can do it again this year. *crosses fingers*

Eventful month so far. Let’s see how the next few weeks go~

053: Human Behavior

l

Same.

☆彡 Christoph Waltz is an awesome actor. I also like his face. It’s really fascinating. I’m probably going to post more of it later.

★彡 By the way, I finally saw Django Unchained today. Holy smokes! I would do an ‘almost review’, but I’m feeling lazy. I didn’t even do one for The Hobbit, did I? Fuck. Anyway, Jamie Foxx was great. Kerry Washington is always great (Her face is likable too). Leonardo DiCaprio = great. That surprises no one. Samuel L. Jackson = obviously great too. I mentioned how great Christoph Waltz is. I didn’t mention that his character (Dr. King Schultz) motivated me to triple the size of my lexicon. That is worth telling for some reason. Anyay, wow. It’s just…go watch it.

☆彡 There is actually a proper term for the type of rock music I enjoy. It’s called “math rock”.

tumblr_m8hbm2LkKS1qeqnvao1_400

It seriously is though. Now I know how to branch out to other “math rock” songs. :u

★彡 In most cases, compliments are wonderful things and should be given to more people more often–assuming it is genuine and not sycophantic or self-serving in any way. I reiterate: in most cases. One should be very careful about complimenting a narcissist. It is almost equivalent to feeding a Gremlin after midnight. It’s just…not the type of monster you want to feel remotely responsible for. A rule of thumb that was given to me is this: “Don’t give a compliment to someone who constantly compliments themselves”. (Notice that I underlined ‘constantly’. Do not assume that someone who says something nice about themselves from time to time is automatically a narcissist. That is called confidence. Constant self-flattery is narcissism.) That is already a symptom of an inflated ego. You don’t want to contribute to that tragedy. Instead, give compliments to people who need and/or deserve it. We already determined that a narcissist doesn’t need any compliments. Another type of person who doesn’t need compliments are people who are simply uninterested/unaffected by them. *raises hand* Compliment-immune individuals build their confidence on their accomplishments or failures, so nothing said to them (whether positive or negative) changes their opinions of themselves. In other words, you’ll run into conversations like this: “No, you’re not a horrible human for failing a test.” “Yes, I am. No one understands. Go away.” (If I’ve ever done that to you, I apologize. I’m not fishing for compliments or your pity. I just genuinely feel crappy about myself for not doing the things I thought I could do, and I need to overcome that hump in my own fashion: with doom, gloom, and food) Of course, don’t give untrue compliments. It is pointless and often harmful. Otherwise, please compliment people more. There is no point in keeping your positive opinions of others to yourself, right?

★彡 It’s so strange playing video games with my nephews. Just a few years ago I had to stop them from crawling near my games so they wouldn’t try to eat them. Now we’re playing them together. Time has a funny way of making me feel…old. LOL. I’m actually surprised. My eldest nephew (Jonny) and I cleared a lot of missions in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3. He got Heero from level 2 to level 14 for me. Awesome!

☆彡 I discovered the ‘majestic Thorin’ tag and ‘dwarf racist party dad’ tag on tumblr. My stomach was killing me from laughing so hard.

★彡 We finished It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia…and, once more, there is a gaping hole in my life where a TV series used to be. *sigh* I could always move on to finishing Voyager, but that show has the same issue that many TV shows have: taking a while to get interesting. I guess it takes time to know all of the characters and fully grasp the type of lives that they lead–a very long time.

☆彡I’ve been getting an unusual amount of encouragement to enter art contests lately. I usually decline taking part in anything that involves tirelessly competing with others for the pointless prize of praise and popularity, but I’ll make an effort for money. While I don’t care much for money myself, I am not ignorant to the fact that money is the ticket to everything. Even my dream of living like a true hermit will take money. I will have to basically buy my way out of this life after all. So…sure. I’ll enter some contests so long as there is a cash prize at the end. I’d also prefer to stay anonymous to other contestants. I don’t need coattail riders on the off chance that I win something.

★彡 I’m debating about playing NieR again. On one hand, there is the guarantee that I will enjoy myself. On the other hand, there is the guarantee of tears. It’s a very big gamble. However, it’s the only game I can imagine getting a 100% completion on. I never get tired of it. I especially miss Kainé and Weiss having their bickering sessions. Always hilarious.

☆彡 It’s sad how many individuals slip through the cracks of leadership requirements with college degrees they barely obtained, blind luck, and/or knowing someone who knows someone. I mean…when your employee turnover rate is ridiculous, and your long-term employees are entirely disgruntled then there is something wrong with your management skills. Of course, the first thing bad leaders do is blame those under them. “You’re not this enough!” “You’re not that enough!” Then, as a leader, teach him/her to be this enough or that enough. Abandon the childish mentality that everyone can be brought to the same point with the same methods and the same timing and actually make an effort to understand the individuals that you hired in the first place. The quickest way to dig yourself into a leadership ditch is to chase the impossible hope of perfection. It’s never going to happen. That is why leadership is so stressful. I mean…nagging about stress as a manager is like nagging about sweat as an athlete. What the hell are you expecting? Then, upon realizing how much respect you lose as a leader for nagging about stress, you start to nag about your hormones or problems in your personal life. Newsflash: no one cares. You’re not a leader because people give a shit about your personal problems. You’re a leader because you have the power to run things efficiently, and you are trusted to do just that. If you can’t do that then give that power to someone with competence. Furthermore, if you are easily angered by others then you are just not a people person…which a leader has to be. I mean, I’m not a people person. At all. But if I am ever forced to manage a group of people for some unfortunate reason, I know the first place to start is understanding each person I am in charge of. I would need to speak with them one-by-one and one-on-one, regardless of how long it takes, and make them feel like they can grow with me and the company we work for. Otherwise, I shouldn’t be at all surprised if they all suddenly want to quit or if they clock-in every day with this “someone please kill me” look on their faces. If I don’t make an effort to make someone content then I shouldn’t be surprised that they are discontent. It’s that simple. Or as you like to repeatedly say, “use logic.” By the way, I am beginning to think that you don’t even understand what logic means. Logic is not knowing something that someone didn’t even teach you. You’re telling someone to build something with tools they do not have.  That is illogical thinking. The hilarious thing is that you get upset when someone doesn’t know something, yet you don’t want to teach them because teaching makes you upset too. How the fuck are they ever going to do anything then? Riddle me that. This is why I have zero respect for you as a leader. You have no business leading. You should just be an assistant to someone who has business leading. Which, I guess, you technically are.

★彡 I am not too bothered by the fact that January feels like one big hump. The start of every year always feels like one big hump. You have to recover from Christmas spending, deal with new year related updates, prepare for tax season, and other crap like that. It happens. Change, to me, is a hill rather than a skip through a field of flowers or something. It’s always difficult and redundant before that pleasant ride on the momentum of hard work. It is actually February and March that will determine a lot for me. So…let’s just see how that goes.

It’s basically Monday again. *sigh* FML ’til Friday evening.

049: *hyperventilates*

tumblr_mf4ubjhb1N1re3c2eo2_r1_500

A LOT OF THINGS TO BE EXCITED ABOUT.

☆彡 THE HOBBIT WAS AMAZING!!! No, it wasn’t an exact replica of the book or The Lord of the Rings trilogy (which seems to be the biggest complaint amongst the haters next to ‘OMG THE 48FPS RUINED MAH LIFE’ foolishness), but overall it was great. I do plan to see it again. Probably on Christmas. Also, can we take a second to acknowledge that Thranduil is the fiercest bitch in all of Tolkien’s legendarium? I could not even when he flipped his hair and walked away on that luxurious moose. Ugh. Fabulous.

★彡 WE FINALLY GOT A NEW XBOX 360!!! (I’m killing these caps and exclamation marks tonight) 250 GB of ebony perfection. *embraces* It also came with a copy of Skyrim…which is currently downloading and has been at 2% for the past 30 minutes…so, it’s going to be a while. But, once it’s done, it will be known with more caps and exclamation marks, of course. *sigh* I can’t wait. The bundle also came with a racing game, but I’m not interested in that.

☆彡 Mark and I got the Alien quadrilogy boxset and the ultimate edition of Legend for $20.00. Brand new. Not even kidding. This week is going to be…I don’t even know. I am not even going to leave the house. It’s not like I ever do, but now it’s going to be twice as bad.

★彡 I found this beautiful copy of The Hobbit novel for $5.00. I really love the cover art. I’ve been staring at it ever since I got it. I’m telling you, Book Nooks is the place to go.

☆彡 Mark and I enjoyed the hibachi dinner at our job. It was fucking delicious. And the hibachi chef “served” me as he put it. LOL. Basically, he told me to lift my plate for vegetables, and then put the vegetables in Mark’s plate instead. I won’t lie. I was dying! Oh yeah. We also won a raffle, and got this bluetooth phone set. It’s really neat. Too bad I don’t talk much. D:

 

 

…Lamest entry ever, but it might explain any prolonged absences that occur.

046: Pagan Poetry

tumblr_me0er8Ih4q1rx31a1

Oh shit! I’m actually naming my entries now! *explosion*

I’m sure it’ll be 90% song titles. Relative-to-my-life song titles…but song titles nonetheless. Yep. Time for updates:

☆彡 My first update entry with a title would be Bjork. I’m so obsessed with her. I was legit terrified of her during my younger years, and Pagan Poetry was the video that made me afraid to watch any more videos from her. I was a spineless child. LOL. Now, I find so many fragments of myself in her lyrics and videos. I’m still emotionally shattered because I haven’t tried her Biophilia app. It’s only on iTunes, and I don’t own anything Apple at the moment. This is so traumatic, guys. I can’t continue on that topic any longer.

★彡This is seriously how I see The Big Bang Theory:

basicallybigbangtheory

☆彡 When I listen to “Heaven” by Annabel, I think of this final-episode-of-CowboyBebop type scenario where this person is running through this building, just taking out motherfuckers…but it’s a melancholy version of taking out motherfuckers. Basically, the protagonist knows that (s)he is either going to die, or the person (s)he is about to kill is someone (s)he truly cares for, but the person is a motherfucker and has to die. A~nd this is why people should stop asking me what I’m thinking when I gaze off into the distance.

★彡 I saw a TV commercial for “The Hobbit“, and it was too much.
Random fact: Watson and Sherlock will be in The Hobbit movies. Martin Freeman (Watson) is Bilbo Baggins while Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) will play both The Necromancer and Smaugh. Also, did you know that Benedict Cumberbatch fangirls call themselves ‘Cumberbitches’. I cannot even with that fandom name. I’m gone. *buys a plane ticket and takes a long flight somewhere else*

☆彡 When I find myself in a workplace where two or more people are trying to form a social bond with me, and I am not even remotely interested, I will try to set those two or more people up with one another. Usually, I start by telling person A that person B is great in some fashion. Then, once I pry a compliment from person A about person B, I will tell person B the compliment. When it comes to more people, I basically rinse and repeat until everyone is a part of the circle wank of flattery and friendship.

Of course, there are two downsides:

  1. If anyone in that circle begins to hate another person in that circle, I get dragged into it because I’m the neutral/side-not-yet-determined person who also brought them together in the first place.
  2. If anyone in that circle starts to dislike me and wishes to waste my time because of it, I have a group of people willing to waste my time since the circle wank of flattery and friendship leads to collective thinking when done for too long.

Being calculating is hard. When done without complications, though, it is pretty nice.

★彡 Mark and I are debating if we should just not buy each other gifts, and put all the money towards a new XBox 360. Considering the pile of shame we were successfully tackling before the system broke, it would seriously be a gift that continues to give. Also, if we have extra cash, we can pick up Portal 2 or something for $20, and enjoy it even more.

☆彡 Wal-Mart had these Halle Berry perfume samples, and I accidentally sprayed one right in my face. Then Mark sprayed me in the chest with the other one like ten seconds after. So, for an entire day, I smelled like Halle Berry. If the world ends, I can say that I have lived my life without regrets or unaccomplished dreams.

★彡 This song. Fuck…

☆彡I don’t know what to contribute to the endless chit-chit I hear about actors and actresses starving themselves for movies except that it puts me to shame. It really does. There are human beings out there with so much self-control that they will live on one meal a day for a movie role, and I can’t even eat three healthy meals a day for my own health. *sigh*

★彡 If I picked up a copy of DDR tomorrow and jumped around this place like a fucking trampoline, I would not even feel remotely bad because both of my neighbors obviously enjoy tap dancing with brick shoes on their free time. So, what’s a little skip and hop on my end? I doubt they’d hear it between the cacophony of jumping and screaming that goes in within their madhouses.

☆彡 I created my own “language” by basically putting three fictional languages together. It’s hardly a language. It’s just a lot of ciphering, and non-existent grammar rules that don’t exist in actual languages. It’s great for writing things you don’t want other people to read. When it comes to speaking the so-called language though…it sounds terrible. 😦

★彡 The Hawkeye initiative is the best thing that happened to the internet.

☆彡 My grammatical weakness, of all things, are homophones. How silly is that?

I feel so ‘bleh’ today. I think a flu is coming on. I wish I had some orange juice. I’m not talking about that $1.49 orange juice. I’m talking about the good shit. That $5.99 Simply Orange that will change your life.

That type of orange juice.

For now, I will settle for Lemon Ginger tea. -.-
