Who's that guy?

Am I the only person who didn't realize that the actor who plays Thor is the same guy who plays Captain Kirk in the reboot of Star Trek? A beard and long hair really changes his look.

Either that or I got distracted by the guy that plays Loki. Possibly both.

iPad

So I've bought an iPad. While I really enjoy my iPhone and think it is awesome I'm actually kind of disappointed by the iPad. I think I just prefer my pc computer. It is a format I'm very familiar with. I miss having a browser that does what I want it to do. I even miss having a mouse. I never thought I would go through right-click withdrawal but I miss the versatility of it. Maybe I should have bought a MacBook instead of a tablet. Or another pc. I'm seriously considering returning this thing. It took me forever to figure out how to find the pics I was saving. The format is so alien. Maybe I need to give it more time. Or I need to learn how to hack the thing the way I have with a pc. I hate hate hate the browsers offered. What is the equivalent of a right click on an iPad? Off to google I go. Again. So frustrating. Happy holidays people!

Mr.Pickles

My parrot has chewed through not one, not two but three of my watches this year. Fortunately I buy my cheap-o watches at the local bargain store. I just bought yet another brand name unknown watch last week and already he has chewed a piece off of the face. It takes just seconds for him to nibble through plastic/wood/aluminum cans while I, his humble owner/parent/purchaser of chew toys is distracted. The watch is still usable at least and I doubt anyone will even notice that a decorative doohickey is missing off of it.

So. It's been a while.

I'm still alive. I have a parrot(An African Senegal for those interested) and a fancy wide angle lens to take pictures of said parrot. Work is good. It paid for both of the aforementioned items; although Mr. Pickles would be offended if he heard anyone refer to him as an 'item'. I've actually had Mr. Pickles for over a year now. I had no idea that I hadn't posted in so long. I have a crush on the entire cast of the Mythbusters. All is well.

o.O

I just discovered vore. It's...obviously not my cup of tea. In fact I'm kind of horrified. Maybe that is the intention.

Speaking of food issues I just discovered I've lost 10 pounds. For a while there in the fall I was actively trying to lose 10-15 lbs and failing miserably so I stopped weighing myself(out of frustration) for a couple of months. I weighed myself today and I mysteriously lost the 10 pounds without even trying. I have however been having increasingly nasty attacks of nerves/anxiety which, for me at least, results in lost appetite. So maybe that is the explanation.

Star Trek:Voyager

Did I mention I recently bought all 7 seasons of Star Trek:Voyager? I've been happily gorging myself for the past month! However I have just gotten to the part where B'Elanna and Tom Paris start getting together and it is a little awkward. I like both characters but the actors that play them don't seem to have any real chemistry IMO. If they had gone with B'Elanna/Chakotay or Paris/Kes, or Paris/Seven it would have been less cringeworthy. Alas.

1 Year Anniversary(was Sept.9)

I just realized that I've had this journal for over a year. I had no idea it had been that long.

Star Trek:Voyager,Working

I just blew 400 dollars of backpay on all 7 seasons of Voyager. I'm really enjoying the show!

I just worked my first nightshift alone in the area of the hospital lab that I've been assigned. I was very nervous at first but it really wasn't that hard. It was a slow night which helped. I liked the quiet as it allowed me to rewrite most of my notes. They were a mess.

Star Trek:Voyager

Lately, I've been binging on Voyager episodes ala youtube. I never really watched the show back when it first aired( I was all Star Trekked out from TNG) but now I realize that I have missed Trek's optimism about the future. It seems to be all 'dark, gritty' sci-fi nowadays(Say hello, Battlestar Galactica)! Not that I don't like dark and gritty mind you. I loved Battlestar Galactica. I just like a little bright and happy, "we are innocent explorers of the universe" every now and again. Plus they have a diverse cast and a woman for a captain! I really appreciate the effort that Gene Roddenberry made to be inclusive(he is deeply missed in the franchise for sure**).

**Let's not discuss the travesty that was Star Trek: Enterprise. Or the new movie which, while not horrible, wasn't nearly as awesome as it could have been(Uhura still managed to be wallpaper and they refrigerated Spock's mom-ugh).

I'm starting to think that self awareness is overrated and that it would actually be preferable to be an amoeba.

I'm glad to be alive-today. I'm glad I have my sister in my life. I'm glad my parents are here. I'm glad I have my dog(who is my baby). I'm glad I have a car and a laptop and a nice new camera and lenses. I have a lot to be grateful for.

New wheels!

I just brought home my first new car. Actually it isn't just my first new car, it is my first car period. I'm a new driver. I've had my license for years but never used it because for the longest time I couldn't afford a vehicle. I've even had to retake lessons because I was so nervous(it has been so long). I'm glad I made it home alive!
