Shur'tugalar, "Soup-er" Bowls and Darth Vador!!

Guess what? I HAVE NINE FOLLOWERS! Who woulda thought nine people care what I have to say?? Lols :)

Well, I went to my church's Super Bowl Party tonight. It was fun. Not as fun as it's been some years, but still fun. Usually I end up arguing with someone over something and it all ends up being really exciting and crazy, but this year we've all apparently matured enough to be past that stage :) Everyone brought a crock pot of soup. My mom made killlllllller baked potatoe soup. I pigged out :D Four bowls full!! Wow. Lotsa starch. I'm surprised my fingers aren't too stiff to type. Haha, okay, sorry; that wasn't even funny at all. I'm just still hyped up on caffine (I can't spell) and I'm tired.

The reason I'm tired is that I was up really late last night because I had this idea for a story that would leave me alone!! I don't know if that ever happens to other writers, but sometimes I'll get an idea that just DEMANDS to be thought through. And I have to shake off the drowsiness and think about the plot and decide whether or not it's good enough to pursue. Usually, it isn't, but I always end up getting something out of the exercise. Like last night, the plot was debatably sucky, but I like the names I came up with: Cosa (COS-uh) and Degan (DEE-gin/gan). I don't know, maybe I'm the only one who likes them...oh well. I do :) Sometimes I even semi-act out the first few chapters of the story. I know, seriously, when you thought I COULD NOT get any weirder, I blurt out something like this.

Ooooh, I have news!! Okay, I don't know how many "Inheritance Cycle" fans read this, but I sort of follow the fansite, http://www.shurtugal.com/, and yesterday I found something awesome: they're looking for staff! There was an open job position for a columnist! I totally applied. I hope they'll let me do it *bites nails* It's just the kind of thing I would LOVE to do! Writing, humor, "Eragon;" does it get any better?? I don't really know how funny I am, but to be able to write about "Eragon" in a semi-formal job position, I'll try a lot of things!

I'm pretty sure there was something else I meant to say...yeah, I'm in a talkative mood. At least this time I'm actually SAYING something instead of mindlessly blabbering about personality quizzes *rolls eyes* :) Well, talk to ya later!




OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I remembered it! (Be proud of me) I was going to say that we're watching the original "Star Wars" movies as a family, and Darth Vador is awesome. He's such an amazing villain. So cold and terrifying. You never know when he's going to strike. And he's so nearly-incincible. And thinking about Anakin's face under the mask makes it better :) Alright, Hayden Christenson can't act his way out of a wet paper bag, and his script is terrible, but he still looks pretty darn good :)

I hadn't seen "Star Wars" since I was seven and Han's getting tortured freaked me out (yes, I couldn't stand guys screaming even then). Well, I want to be able to write villains just like Darth Vador. My own villains disappoint me. If I ever met him, I would be very afraid of Darth Vador (or Durza or Sarumon ), but not MY villains. My villains don't scare me in the least. Does anyone else have that problem with their villains? Is that natural? Or am I just not very good at characterizing evil in a scary way? Hmm...

about the position, I'm crossing my fingers for you to get it

Kendra Logan said...

Cool! Ten! Lol, thanks for following! I've been trying to follow yours, but the gadget isn't there or something.

I'm sorry your night was boring :( Oh well, next year! And mine wasn't really interesting either. Just the soup part :)

Thanks!! I hope I get the position, too. I'll be sure to post the absolute second I find out! :)

Big Fish said...

yeah, I hadn't put it there
thanks, but you misunderstood me ^_^ it wasn't boring, I like playing pc, it just wasn't special
good luck

Kendra Logan said...

Oh, okay, cool! Lol, I for one actually like playing computer games and stuff, but I wanted to be sympathetic if you were disappointed lol! :)

Big Fish said...

=) thank you

Big Fish said...

what kind of games and particular games do you like to play?

Kendra Logan said...

DragonFable usually lol! And I just surf the web looking for pointless personality quizzes (but you already know that lol!) And I play disc games sometimes. Mostly I just search around for people to talk to on my blog or on one of my emails or something. What about you?

Big Fish said...

I see ^_^
I don't play browser games anymore... it's boring ^^"
lately I've been playing counter-strike 1.6 only, but here go some games I play/have played and might play again: pro evolution soccer 2009, GTA vice city, 9dragons (mmorpg), perfect world (mmorpg), warcraft II and III (strategy), prince of persia 2 (adventure: swords and stuff), medal of honor (shooter), etc.
yeah I've played a lot...

I'll leave a short list of some of the browser games I've played (man this is a long comment): the crims, dark throne, dragon fable, adventure quest, hattrick, ogame, bitefight, monsters game, etc.

Kendra Logan said...

Wow, cool! Those sound interesting--good interesting, lol!

Big Fish said...

^_^
you aren't much of a video game fan, are you?
in the poll there should be a 3rd answer: no idea ^^"

Kendra Logan said...

I like video games, actually, but we don't have any so I have to play them at friends' houses lol! Whenever we move we're gonna get a wii though!! :)

Do you mean you don't know what that expression means, or you don't know which one you are?

Big Fish said...

ok =)
I don't know which one I am... I consider myself in the middle (it's easier to judge this kind of things if you're watching that person, and you're not actually the person)

Kendra Logan said...

That's true...I'm kind of a pessimist, lol. I don't like being disappointed, so I figure if I'm already disappointed, all I can be is pleasantly surprised...or something like that lol! Did that make any sense at all...? Haha.

Big Fish said...

yeah, I know that philosophy ^_^

Kendra Logan said...

Yup :)
