    I feel quite a bit better than I did when I took a self portrait earlier in the month.

    @oldhat - Oh you. Seeing as we have our share of Man/Gods on this forum (I am looking in your direction, mr. Navarro), I call shenanigans, but will also take the compliment (and yes I will have the cake which I am currently eating).

    @celan - Star Wars? I wonder what that means... To be fair, I don't think my accent is quite representative of the usual Finnish accent, which can be a bit... clunky.

    But yeah. That was fun. Moar?

    If I can manage to force myself to look decent and figure out how to make things work (and actually get around to doing it), I might play a song for you with a Uke. A very simple and odd song, mind.

    do it! (also, Oldhat should do a uke stint, too).

    I might do some spanish poetry for you all tomorrow. On the topic of "Gah I hate my voice," which is true for me as well, I actually like my voice when I speak in spanish. I think it might have to do with the way the inflections affect my speech.

    @trini - Do it! I like having my preconceptions about what everyone sounds like shattered. I thought @Oddbill would have an English accent despite knowing he's from across the pond ¬_¬

    @Argos - Readings sound fun actually. I might give something similar a shot myself.

    @E-Ray: The weird thing is that my accent changes according to my environment. If I watch enough British tv etc, my accent will change. And I suspect my accent is slightly different while singing too (and maybe how I'm singing, if that makes sense). The joys of moving a shit-ton growing up, eh?

    Edit to add a photo of young me to make up for all my prattling.

    Have you ever had way too much to drink and then seen or heard something the next day that brought back tiny fragments of memories (usually horrible, horrible memories) of events from the previous night?

    This is what I found on my phone this morning. Last night started with poteen mixed with pineapple juice and moved on to Stella before devolving into shots of Bacardi 151.

    Never get too drunk to defend your dignity when you hang around with strippers.

    Oh! Here is something of me speaking and rambling about glasses and bras and ebay.

    LINKYDOO because TUMBLR doesn't EMBED (and it's to Andre's tumblr repost because I seem to have deleted it from mine at some point?)

    Goofing around with friends on an all-too-short visit back to my home city of Brisbane. I turned 32!

    Silly Me

    Have loved seeing everyone's video-posts! Will contemplate making one although more gin may be required...

    @Oddbill - lived in North Buffalo until I was 18, moved to Pittsburgh for school ten years ago, but most of my family's still there - all in the city. It's weird to be from the actual city of Buffalo, because everyone from the area hears "Buffalo" and assumes a suburb. I've had people from as far away as Rochester tell me they were from Buffalo.
    • CommentTimeJan 30th 2011
    @SteadyUP - it's because generally you're lucky if people out of state even realize there are any other cities in New York other than New York City. They might know Buffalo because of the Bills, or jokes about winter. So, it's easier to say "Buffalo" meaning just about anywhere in WNY, rather than try to explain North Tonawanda, and getting sidetracked in some arcane description of the significance of the Erie Canal on the development of population centers upstate. :p

    (Though I admit Rochester seems a bit too far afield, and too big in it's own right, to fall under this rule.)

    I always miss the SNOM usually because of moments like this.

    Showing the love.

    About to sneak out and see the last day of THE MYSTERY BOOKSTORE in Westwood. Goodbye to the last independent shop in Los Angeles ... :(

    Here's the Robert Crais signing there:

    @stsparky - that's not the last. What about Book Soup in Hollywood, Skylight in Los Feliz, Metropolis Downtown... all independents.

    I don't take part in this nearly enough.

    Here's me, in the lab, watching my social life bleed away into some feed or another whilst I assemble a presentation.
