May Was Going to be Mamazing

the cumberbatch wink

So I pondered throughout the weeks of April. What did I ponder? you may well wonder.

I’d been thinking of nothing less than blogging every day for another whole month! Yeah, I noticed a bunch of y’all doing April A to Z or whatever the fuck it was and I thought that was a cool idea, though I haven’t read most of April’s posts yet (I’m still on February’s). But at T of V we’d rather make up our own shit usually, so I figured I’d steal the month of May.

I would have called it MakeMayMamazing and it would have been. Mamazing, that is. The abbreviated form is MMMMay with each May enunciated with a sensual groan. It would have been superbly sexy. Alas, it never stood a chance of actually happening.

oh god why

Why? No good reason, I just couldn’t muster up the will. For one thing, I’m moving this weekend—all the way to the other side of Vancouver. (Vancouver in the state of Washington that is, otherwise known as North North Portland.) This move will put me closer to my school, freeways and downtown. It’s a good move. But moving’s a bitch. Heavy furniture’s the least of my problems: I’ve got thousands of books, comics, games, DVDS and all kinds of boxed junk to haul. And then, I get to unpack it all again! So I just figured my first week’s daily posts wouldn’t be very good. This is going to be a busy week.

For a second thing…there is no second thing, really.

But I think we’ll do MakeMayMamazing next year, so I’m throwing it out there. Have I copyrighted the term? Just assume I have. Will I try another month of daily blogging this year before EveryDamnDayDecember comes back around? Maybe. Don’t know yet. We’ll always have December at least, that’s a tradition.

No regular Friday post this week, so sorry. Next Friday I’ll probably put up the one about my deep love for the NBA and the playoffs. I am just not in the mood to edit a long post right now. If you’re lucky, I might even mention that racist guy who owns a team you probably had never heard of before.

I didn’t even know L.A. had two basketball teams!

(Full disclosure: I’m a Lakers fan. L.A. is still a Lakers town, goddammit. Even if they look like they’re not going to be in the playoffs again for a generation…)

Hey, Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes out tonight in the U.S.A.! As of this writing, Thursday evening, midnight showings are a few hours away. No, I don’t do midnight shows any more. The buzz is mixed on this one. I’ll be posting my take on the movie as soon as I see it. Hopefully, there won’t be a goddamn massacre, but America…fuck yeah…

Also, if you’d like you could pop over to Tipsy Lit and vote for my story, The Power Trio. The reader poll goes up on Saturday. Just find my link and vote vote vote! I don’t know if you can vote three times but if you can, go for it!

Tipsy Lit is a blogship captained by Ericka Clay, the sexiest half-faced chick on WordPress. I’d love to get some of their readers ‘cos I am also often tipsy, so it seems like a good fit.

Well, there you go. Think of this post as my tribute to my favorite sitcom Seinfeld. If they can do a show about nothing, I can do a blog about nothing.

See y’all later….

Mein WordPress Kampf, part two: Every Damn Day and Afterwards

So where were we?

Sometime last November I noticed that just about every blog I looked at was in the midst of NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. The goal of this exercise in sadomasochistic blog-flogging is to write a thousand words of a novel every day while also blogging daily about the experience. Continue reading

The Planet that Didn’t Want to be Found, part two

A second shot narrowly skimmed by Stone as he fled towards his ship. He rolled behind the craft, hoping he was out of sight of the shooter, and drew his sidearm. But nothing else happened right away. For tense minutes he waited, fearing to move a muscle. He never noticed the person who crept up behind him until its hand was on his shoulder and flipping him over onto his back. The assailant then dropped a knee onto Stone’s chest and pinned him to the ground. Continue reading

The Planet that Didn’t Want to be Found

The planet shouldn’t have even been there. When Riley emerged from jumpspace, he had expected to rendezvous with his partner Stone in a clear sector of space. Instead, he’d nearly been pulled into the gravity of a small world that was inexplicably very much present. Upon recovery after the near disaster, Riley studied the improbable planet.

Song for a Tuesday

I wrote a song! It  looks sort of like poetry, but it’s lyrics. Actually, I wrote these lyrics to the tune of a famous song. If anyone can guess what the original song was, I’ll award you ten T of V points! (points redeemable only in your imagination)

Hint: It’s an old song. It was a number one hit. Continue reading

Status Update for EvDaDaDec

Thought I would take a few minutes and do an update.

I haven’t been able to read many blogs over the last few days, so please be patient. Had to work on my final projects this weekend and they took up a lot of my time. But the quarter is done after tonight! I’ve got about 200 posts to read that have accumulated so I may not get to all of them this week. Mostly because you all keep posting new stuff all the time!

I told one of my classmates how I’m following about 150 blogs now and she thought that was a lot. How many do you guys follow? (My friend follows four.)

I’ve tried to keep up with comments and pingbacks, so that’s in good shape.

Hey, no one liked my Lana del Rey piece. You either hate me or her, I don’t know which.

Anyway, I’m not going to stop posting every damn day, so don’t worry. It doesn’t mean you’re going to like everything. *sniffle*

Now check this out that I copied from Blogdramedy:

blogfestivus2013

{Here is it, the start of the Christmas holiday season. This means it must be time for BlogFestivus.

For 2013, we’re going with a Christmas classic. Just to see how far from traditional you bloggers can roam without totally losing the thread of this year’s theme.

Are we ready? Then here are the details.

1. It’s a short challenge. Just 5 stories over 5 days. From December 16 to December 20.

2. You don’t need to come up with a lot of words. Only 200 for each story.

3. This year, we’ll be writing to A Christmas Carol and you can make it a serial story or each piece can stand alone.

Day One: Ebenezer Scrooge
Day Two: Ghost of Christmas Past
Day Three: Ghost of Christmas Present
Day Four: Ghost of Christmas Future
Day Five: Tiny Tim

To mix it up a little, we’ll set the scene in 2013. Your stories can be naughty or nice. Based in reality or totally out there. You decide. It’s your blog. Video and audio posts count.

4.  You get to use the awesome artwork I designed just for this challenge on your own blog!

5. The writer who, over the course of the challenge, makes me laugh the most, will receive a tin-plated invitation to guest blog on Blogdramedy. (Word is…on the street? You could trade this for an empty Double Bubble gum wrapper. A collectors item!)

6. It’s free! There’ll be no PayPaling of any kind here on this blog. I want you to keep those pennies and treat yourself to something extra special this holiday season. Consider it my gift to you.}

My monkey and I are so there.

That’s the main reason I’m posting this update.

I thought this sounded up my alley, and in my wheelhouse, and it even burst my bubble. So T of V is going to participate. If any EvDaDaDecs want to join with me on this challenge, go to Blogdramedy and sign up! And each post will count as a damn day!

(Mine don’t. So I’ll be posting twice those days. For the real challenge, and extra imagination points, do what I do. If you dare….)

I guess that’ s all I have to say for now. See you tomorrow!

fuiku haiku

i vowed i would not

resort to this sad method

but daily posts are hard;

so do i cheat, well

you may call me tricky, but

at least its a double

(A double haiku that is. Does a double haiku have a special name, like twoku? Haitwo? Duoku? Count Dooku? Niku? <ni is Japanese for two> {holy shit, parentheses within parentheses})

*sigh* I’ll do better tomorrow.

The New King of the Web or You Like Me, You Virtually Like Me

I got another award!

My friend V, from The Verbal Spew Review did this to me. That is, bestowed the Versatile Blogger award upon my head. Again, I am excited and confused. Yes, this is two awards in one year. So far…*heh heh* Continue reading
