I'm Sebastian, your other celebrity guest!
I've been thinking about what to write, and I don't really know. I had a brilliant revelation last night as I was falling asleep, but I forget it. So I'll just write, and hopefully it'll be entertaining.
Things I've recently discovered:
- The word soigné
- Crusader Kings
Ten minutes ago, I finished my first Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions, but I haven't had near enough time to process it. So I won't be talking about that. Next I'll be finishing the last couple chapters of Eats, Shoots & Leaves and then diving headfirst into The Fountainhead, which promises to be a very long, trudging and dreary journey into the wonders of capitalism.
Oh, Harry Potter! I could talk about that! I've read and own all of the books, and the quidditch one and the bestiary one, and they're good. Well, OK, I didn't read the first book; I listened to it. Close enough, right? My favorite is Order of the Phoenix. I'm just not into them in a geeky way like you guys and Hayley.
Not that there's anything wrong with being geeky! This is sort of embarrassing for me, but I used to be into Halo in a really, really big way. I missed Homecoming freshman year to go to a Halo gathering several states away. I own the first three Halo books and The Art of Halo. I camped out at the release of Halo 2. I was pretty involved in the fan community. Before that, it was Pokemon -- I read fanfic, I tried to write fanfic, I had an Angelfire site and about a million Expages sites (for those of you who remember those -- weren't they great?), my first AIM screenname was pokemaniac829287, I played the Gameboy and N64 games, I played Pokemon cards. Currently, I'm not really particularly geeky about any one thing -- kind of in a lull. I'm sure something will come along sooner or later.
Somewhat tangentially from the geekiness thing, what do you guys think about pulp? I've sort of recently come to realize that everyone has their pulp, and those who don't are really, really uptight. My dad watches war movies, Jess listens to pop music, Hayley reads Twilight, and I like H.P. Lovecraft, scifi and zombie movies. You can be as high-minded and pretentious as you want, but everyone needs to relax with something downright trashy.
Hey, do you guys think that Hayley's ads are going to be for Halo or Pokemon now? My blog is very photo-heavy, without many words, but I once posted something about mangoes. All of my ads have been for mangoes ever since.
Yeah. So. Um. Not sure what else to write about, so I guess I'll rob Lauren's wonderful idea of bringing back the sexy/unsexy list.
- Johnny Depp (and, by extension, pirates, barbers, and people with scissors for hands)
- No Doubt
- Things made of white plastic
- Justin Timberlake
- Owning too many cats
- The Black Plague
Well, kids, that's it for me. Lor may be making another appearance at some point, so keep your eyes peeled.
Chipotle burritos this year: No idea. As much as I love them, I think I'm still in single digits.
S'mores this summer: 2, I think.
