I had an amazing and awesome wedding. I will elaborate when I don't have to get ready for work...

But my college friends need to get together for reasons other than weddings, because we're gonna run out of single people sooner or later.

Jittery night + starting up a computer to write a post= falling asleep without shutting it down.

Laptop overheated and as far as I can tell, my computer is dead.

Shaken not stirred. [Jun. 21st, 2009|04:52 am]

[music |ZZ-Top- Doubleback (in my head)]

Got up this morning for Free RPG Day. M-ville was ok. Called around to see if anyone wanted to go to Warrensburg, since it has the superior treatment. Found a taker. Drove down, overshot the city while talking. (Note to self, it's ok to talk while driving, but only if you have a navigator).

Had a blast. Spent way too much. Made a convert to the "Church of" Perry Foster's BBQ. Drove back to M-ville, hung out for a few hours. Drove home.

BARELY Missed a cow as I pop over the hill and have to swerve and break to miss a pair of cows that have escaped their pen and are standing on the road. Don't know who to call as it was 4:30 in the AM when this happened. Hope no one else hits them. But I was to shaken to play amateur cattle wrangler to get the bovine beasties off the blacktop (Alliteration is fun!).

So now I hope for the best and wait for the sun to rise so I can get a better look at my car and make sure that I did, indeed, miss the cow.

Questions... YAY! [Jun. 9th, 2009|02:06 am]

Finally answering questions that summersdream put to me about 2 weeks ago:

It's late and I'm tired so I'm rambling a bit. And my sentence structure will likely suck more than normal.

1. Why did you choose your college?

It was a combination of many factors. Your college was way to close to home. Truman was offering me quite a bit of scholarship money (although Southeast and Southwest were offering me full rides). And I didn't have my drivers license yet (that's a story in and of itself) so I was kinda dependent on my family to get me to the college I would be attending (and the Southern state schools were too far).

As I said, Truman offered me a fair sum of money plus they were farther away from home so as to give me some distance between me and my family. But not so much distance that it would be impossible to get rides home.

2. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Anywhere but here, or that is my fervent hope. Then again, 5 years ago I didn't think I'd still be here. But within a year I hope to be in Columbia, MO. From there... I dunno. I kinda like Illinois from what I've seen of it. I wouldn't mind living on either coast, but I'd kinda like to avoid California or Florida. Natural disaster concerns, property values, and I think I'd like to be far away from tourist traps.

3. Where did your username come from?

It comes from the first rpg I was ever in. Though I didn't know I was actually making an online RPG at the time. I was working on a X-men fanfic with a friend. She was writing one character, I was writing the other. Corros was the shortened form of his name. His mutant power was the ability to create any acid out of thin air. Like Ice-man and ice, only with Sulfuric and Hydrochloric acid. He was Sean Murphy a.k.a. Corrosion.

4. Kenders or Tribbles?

What's the question? Which would I rather have around? Likely Tribbles since they're not hard to manage if you pay attention to the rules. In other words, just don't feed them. Kender are more annoying, but they're much more fun.

5. What was your first fandom?

That's a hard one. I know it's not Star Trek, since I came into that much later in life. Ditto with Back to the Future. So I'm gonna have to say, Ghostbusters. That or Scooby Doo, I remember watching a lot of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?" every day with my brothers on a tiny little b&w TV in the basement. But I was really into Ghostbusters. And Ghostbusters 2 was the first movie that I saw in a theater that I actually remember seeing in a theater. So that's my answer.

Anyway, to keep this meme going (or as my friend Keith calls them, viruses) just tell me you want questions and I'll give you 5 of your own to answer.

And to combine this with another meme a couple friends of mine are doing: Ask me a question. Any question and I'll answer. Though I will refuse to answer certain questions.

This week in my music education.... [Apr. 29th, 2009|06:50 pm]
Corrosive Corrosion
[mood |mellowmellow]
[music |"I Am the Walrus"- Bono]

First thing, I bough Led Zeppelin's 2 disk Mothership collection. It was brought on by quite a few factors. We had been giving SDH crap about not knowing "Stairway to Heaven" on the trip to the SCA trip in K-ville (I'll get around to talking about K-ville later, I hope). And then later on I made a massive ass of myself in front of her and the guy who she was talking to who was wearing a LZ shirt. My LZ knowledge isn't that much better, so I was feeling guilty. (She was familiar with the song, she just didn't know it off the top of her head the first time). Then I was following one of my cousins on Facebook and he was talking about putting together a LZ playlist, and I realized that besides Stairway, the only two other LZ songs I was familiar with were because I'd played them on Guitar Hero.

So I was in Walmart, and there it was... 2 disks of Led Zeppelin with all (or most) of the songs my cousin and his amigos were talking about... and it was dirt cheap. So I had to snag it.

I finally got around to watching Across the Universe. I bought it months ago, but it sat with the 50-some other DVDS that I have bought because they were a good deal or I wanted to see them, but I've never watched. I'm a Beatles fan since forever, though my fandom pales in comparison with that of many of my friends. Long story short, I loved it. I now own the soundtrack and it has renewed my plan to get every single Beatles song on CD or mp3. And if I can find the two "German songs" in that mix, that would be awesome! ("I want to hold your hand" in German remains one of my best song memories from college)

So while it hasn't been the best of weeks, from a music standpoint, it's just been freaking awesome.

What do you do when you are presented with only two solutions to a dilemma, and every fiber of your being tells you that both solutions are wrong?

There has to be a third option, but your body mentally and physically won't grant you the ability to find it.

To any parents of young children out there.... [Mar. 7th, 2009|01:38 pm]
Corrosive Corrosion
[mood |aggravatedaggravated]

Ok, if you have young children, or children below the age of 17, (and I can only think of 2 friends of mine who do, and they both know better so ignore this lecture) keep this in mind:

Watchmen is an R-Rated movie that is extremely R-Rated, based off of a graphic novel/comic book mini-series (whatever you want to call it) that covers some pretty vile and adult topics, and the movie doesn't gloss them over.

No one below the age of 17 should see this movie, and I know quite a few 17 year olds who shouldn't see this movie.

That said, I extremely enjoyed the movie. Yes they changed a few things that I wish they would have left the same, including a rather drastic change that I really don't agree with, but I can understand why they did it (leaving it the original way would have added minutes to a movie that was already pushing 3 hrs and if they left it in they would have been compared to Mad Max (which predated the original scene) or ... *BLEH!* Saw *Bleh* (which didn't)).

It's a good movie. I think if he wasn't' still pissed with DC over V for Vendetta (which he had every right to be after the way that went down), Alan Moore would be proud of what was accomplished.

So, I would recommend seeing it, just keep in mind that it's not a super fluffy bunny happy Superhero movie.

If you want that, go out and rent last summer's Iron Man or Incredible Hulk, or the new Wonder Woman direct to DVD feature that just came out. They're all good, and definitely a whole lot less offensive than Watchmen

I'm sorry for the rant, there is a reason for this, but I'm not gonna bore you with it right now.

Gaming! yay! [Feb. 28th, 2009|06:31 pm]
Corrosive Corrosion
[mood |optimisticoptimistic]

Unfortunately, not running or playing in an RPG right now. It seems like my regular group has self-destructed at least for now. I tried to get something started at the gaming store, but they closed up shop without a reason.

But I might be trying to get something started in the next couple weeks. So here's hoping...

Anyway, I was wondering if I could get a little help. I know that quite a few of you out there have Wii's and I recently lucked into some Wiipoints. And my indecisiveness has reared it's ugly head. I can't decide what to buy. Any suggestions/recommendations of games that you've bought or really enjoyed (or that you owned back on their original system that you would suggest I give a whirl) would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I Hate Mohela's online bill payment system so VERY VERY much. It's bad enough that their login system is a pain in the ass. But now it won't let me pay my bill and I'm gonna get assessed late fees and it's not my fault.

It's days like this that I wish I never went to college, for all the good it's done me.

Y'know it was bad enough tomorrow (although it's only about 45 minutes away at this point) is gonna suck as it is.

I didn't need freezing rain to keep me away from work for a second night this week thus making my last paycheck before Christmas even smaller.

Not only that I have to work tomorrow Night.

Now I find out that Majel Roddenberry has passed away.

*looks for his Romulan Ale to raise a glass.*
