What I think is funny about “social media” is how it isn’t very social. Posts filed under this category are generally going to be super short like my status updates, or funny memes I’ve come across via social media sites like Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.

Happy Bring Home a Puppy Day!

So, I don’t know if you know this — even though I totally mentioned it in my homage to Xander Wilson back in August — today marks the fifteenth anniversary of my favorite holiday, which I have decided should be called The Day My Parents Brought Home a Little Brother for Dusty Day.

Xander, 2009

Definitely the best investment my family ever made.  (May Dusty and Xander both rest in peace.)

In other, completely-unrelated-to-April-Fool’s-Day news, deviantART (where I post most of my artwork) has this crazy awesome new feature called thoughtART.  You can MAKE ART WITH YOUR MIND!  I totally used it and thought a painting into existence.  My subconscious mind named it Squeals of Kittens, and it’s definitely the best painting I’ve ever painted with my brain.

Then, I decided to check in at DramaFever (where I watch all of my K-Dramas) and would you believe they’ve got a new feature too?  They are replacing all subtitles with emoji — you know, smilies and emotive icons and what not.

Well, I couldn’t understand all of that gibberish emoji stuff (it’s not really my thing), so I went to ThinkGeek to shop for some fangirl paraphernalia.  I they now have Rosetta Stone: Learn to Speak Klingon — which is GREAT news because now when I watch episodes of Star Trek and TNG, I won’t have to read the subtitles when they’re speaking in Klingon!  Isn’t that awesome?!


I thought so.  xD

Lots of Things To Do @ 11:35 pm

I have a huge list of website stuff I need-slash-want to do, but I don’t have the will power to get any of it done at the moment.  I will post about my ideas for the changes to help motivate me — but I’ll post it later.

Even Prouder to Be Texan

I’ll be honest, I’m not exactly the most politically involved person.  Mostly, I’m of the mind that my political and philosophical views are mine, and I don’t need to put them on other people — especially if those other people don’t have an open mind, and only want to listen for the sake of argument.  But there is one subject that really matters to me, and that’s marriage equality.  (My opinion in a nutshell:  Marriage is a commitment to another person with whom you want to build your life, and its a legally binding contract that offers very real security to you and your significant other.  It shouldn’t matter what gender you or your significant other is.)

So last night, just as I was getting off work (having spent the whole day not paying attention to Facebook or news feeds of any kind), when Bob said, “Did you hear the big news about Texas today?”  I honestly had no idea what he was referred to, but my response was, “Unless Texas has embraced marriage equality, I’m not sure if I would call it big news, but go ahead and tell me.”

Bob just stared at me for a minute.

Can you guess what the big news actually was?

That’s right.  My fair Lone Star State is well on it’s way to marriage equality.  And I’m now that much prouder to be a Texan than I was yesterday.
