Update quicky.

  • Still working at COP. It's a good job and I enjoy it. Had my mid-year review with my supervisor and it was very productive. :)

  • Spent late June in Florida with the family. My niece is a massive bundle of cute. She's not even a baby anymore, but the most adorable 2 1/2 year old you can imagine. See? See? See?

  • Passed my state licensure exam, but still need to find a supervisor. It has me stressed. Money is also an issue. *sigh* Bummer.

  • Enjoying Doctor Who. I suggested one of my best friends, Nausheen, try it, but she says it's not fo her. So, I did the next best thing. I got her son hooked on The Sarah Jane Adventures. I win.

  • My kitties are as adorable as ever. I can't imagine not having them around me no matter how much they annoy me sometimes.

  • I've been playing WoW lately. RPing with my friends. Found a few cool guilds, Adriel came back. I just couldn't keep away from her for long.

  • So excited about upcoming releases. Free Four (book) and Sea of Monsters (movie) in August. Four by Four (book) in September. House of Hades and Allegiant (books) in October. Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special in November. And Final Fantasy: Lightning Returns (video game) in December. Plus Divergent (movie) and Dragon Age III (video game) in the spring and fall of 2014, respectively.

  • Speaking of upcomign releases and MMOs, I got invited to the beta for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. I only got to dabble in it this morning, but it looks interesting. I've never played a FF MMO before, but I might as well take a look around this weekend, right?

I think that's it. If I could only get my car and apartment cleaned up and my internship lined up and my finances in order, I might be content. *sigh*

Quiz time! Imagine that you are joining a game or RP (tabletop, mud, forum-based, whatever) that takes place in this world:

Question: What country would your character be from?

Me, my first instinct is that I'd like to be from Where the Wild Things Are. Just for shits and giggles. Your turn!

Practicum is going well. I'm not getting enough clients, but I'm working on that. ^.^

I'm starting an experiment with my ADHD medication. I'm curious if I'll do better when I'm not on it, due to my symptoms being more even across the day, rather than being super productive at work and then get nothing done at home. So far, it's working well.

I have a date with Dave tonight. We're going to see Avengers. I've seen it once, but want to see it again. Dave's never seen it. Should be fun.

Tomorrow night, the gang is going to see Brave. Minus the kids. That's right, the ADULTS are going to see Brave. You got a problem with that?! Nausheen is bringing her new boyfriend in the hopes of getting feedback from her friends. Afterwards, we're going to Jon & Linda's to play Settlers of Catan and Hand & Foot.

Nausheen went to church with me 2 weeks ago. She liked it, I think. Though the style shocked her. I don't think she ever quite understood what "contemporary worship" meant (she was raised muslim). We're going back this week - the sermon series is on being someone's hero, and the pastor is pulling references straight out of the DC and Marvel superheroes. It's hysterical.

On Monday, I am starting a new exercise routine. I'm joining an Aqua Fit class on Mondays and Wednesdays after work. I'm looking forward to it - I love swimming, and swimming is so much nicer when it's the middle of summer in Houston, TX. Just sayin'.

  • Belkar, CE/CN smartass halfling ranger
  • Mr. Scruffy: Belkar's kitten
  • Elan, CG (naive) bard
  • Roy, battle-hardened fighter (with an MBA)
Belkar: Ha! The kobold tried to kill Mr. Scruffy, and in the end, he died shielding him from acid! Payback's a bitch!
Elan: But... what about all the awful stuff you already did to him as payback for that?
Belkar: You gotta pay down the interest before you can touch the principle, kid.
Roy: HEY! Both of you! Stop misapplying the philosophical concept of karma and MOVE!



My Tuesday is now complete.

What is a meme?
The meme is a strange word. It cropped up in internet lingo so fast and yet so seamlessly that anyone who feels at home in the internet community seems to instinctively understand the use of the word, and yet the actually definition of the term is illusive to most of us. I'm no different, and when I had to define the word for someone not familiar with the lingo, I struggled. Here's what I came up with (admittedly pulling it out of my ass):

"A meme is an... inside joke of sorts. An inside joke that can span a large portion of the internet community. A meme is spread via the internet as its engine and it reaches a lot of people, but if you aren't familiar with the 'joke', you won't understand it at all."

When I explained it thus, I was thinking of things like LOLrus' bucket and Skyrim's "arrow in the knee" joke. However, it seems to me that before these types of memes, a meme was something else entirely.

To meme or not to meme?Collapse )

So, there you have it. Now you know what a meme is. What is your favorite meme? Share with me? And in the meantime, I'm going back to read about the history of emoticons. :D
