“SQUEEEEEEEEE!” From Alexandria’s Geek Corner

5 Comments

“OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! OWWWW! What the hell, Sheppard?”

“My apologies, Alex. I thought you were having a panic attack.”

“And so you slapped me?”

“Better than having Ronon shoot you with his blaster.” Colonel Sheppard waves towards Ronon, “Say Hi, Chewie, you’re recording this, right?”

“Yes, so I have your confession now lite colonel that you did, in fact, hit a superior officer!”

“Hey, let’s not be so hasty there, Alex. We could negotiate a few things.”

“You have nothing I want, John. And I have today’s Corner to do, so scoot and take Chewie with you. Why, no never mind, I don’t want to know about your weird nicknames for everyone. But I better have a cute one, that’s all I have to say about that.”

“It’s Almost TIME!!! Friday peeps, FRIDAY! or as we like to call it, FRIYAAAAY!” 

“And to whet our appetites, like we need that, another trailer!” 

What happens when I can’t sleep…

This lovely voice starts whispering to me, “I’m bored. You haven’t written about me in a while. I like these little bits you’re doing now. I want more, I’m greedy. People like and some even love Kitty Girls!”

Oi Vey! Am I the only writer that gets their characters whispering in their head to write more about them? Yes? NO? 😛

I know, I don’t have a mental issue, thank you very much! I know the signs and symptoms of those, I am a diagnostic intake therapist. 😉 And any who if it actually makes me happy and gets me to write and be more creative, I’m okay with this.  And to make some people happy, yes, I have discussed hearing Alexandria’s voice in my head, and I was told I’m not schizophrenic, I’m a writer! So there! Yes, it was by a Licensed Psychiatrist. lol

So between watching Marvel movies and youtube clips of the various Phases and OMG! I saw something… and naturally, it fits Alex’s personality, “Uh, boss lady, that’s purrrsonality. Think Julie Newmar! She is still schmexy in her way!” Right, sorry there.

Alexandria is also my emotional valve! When I’m really upset about something, I can write it out. That story may never see the light of day, especially the gruesome really ultra-violent ones, but it helps me get my anger out in a constructive, not destructive-illegal way. Yep! lol 🙂 And some people have wondered about my love of the Mirror Universe. I don’t advocate violence in real life, but it is fun being a little evil-if only in my writing. 😉 Also not the only writer to have done this! 😉

Patrick likes listening to me discuss story ideas with JiJi and/or Isis. Isis is such the instigator and patted my head the other day when I was trying to sleep and was DVR’ing on Google Keep! Yes, I really need to do a write up on that app!!! It’s my new personal assistant and day planner in one! I ❤ that app!! I’ve been keeping notes on it for this game too.

So onto the challenge, I’m working on Phase 1 now, I have the two people picked out! 😉 The one is Princess Diana, Wonder Woman! The other is a secret for now. 😉

I have been having my friend’s on Facebook pick one of the origin stories for Princess Diana, Wonder Woman.  The choices were the original story I grew up with, the clay story, where Queen Hippolyta molded Diana from the clay of Themiscrya and the Gods/Goddesses blessed and brought her to life! She was not only, Hippolyta’s daughter but all the other Amazon’s as well.

And then the one from one of the new and disastrous reboots, I mean seriously, how many times are they going to reboot characters! Enough is Enough, already!! I mean, I stopped buying comics from DC because I don’t recognize or I don’t like this New Direction, yet again, they’re going for!! Knock it off!! Your books appear to be selling well and making money, and yet… Marvel is beating you hands down in the Movie arena! I love Marvel movies, they are what I expect from a movie, entertaining and FUN! DC you’ve lost the fun in the movies, everything is so dark, figuratively and literally-I leave a movie theater with a headache. I didn’t even brag about Justice League, it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t what I expected. Thank Goddess for Wonder Woman! But I’m really all in for this upcoming Avenger’s Infinity War, how many blog entries have I done? Oh I think maybe five or so if you count the IOTD’s I’ve done too. DC movies I’ve blogged about, huh let me think, zero!

And redirect time, sorry- I tend to go on tangents, and yet this time, it’s part of the challenge. 😉 There really is a method to my madness. I promise.

And I’m shocked,  I’ve only had a few friends from the multiple Wonder Woman groups I participate in to answer this first question. Where are the rest of you? And I’ve had NO WOMEN PARTICIPATE!  So I’ve only received the men’s perspective on this, which is pretty interesting, at least in my opinion. I now have a few different hypotheses, but I’m not doing a paper on this, so I’m letting it go. 😉 (for now).

Is there anyone here on WordPress that wants to play along with us? You have until Friday night, by Midnight to make it in! After that, I hope to have the art up and the question asked. Simply comment on this entry and you get a chance the others are just now finding out about!! 😉

Now for the Marvel side- who loves Marvel, and wants to help ME! Muahahahaaaa! PM if you’re up for it.  And if you’ve picked answers for Wonder Woman, I want you to stay there and you can even team up if you want- when the game is started. 😉 I asked for the permission to post your names as I’ll be blogging this too! There’s not enough fun for everyone- this is FREE and I hope a challenging game for people! 

I’m working on the art, but I’m also having severe fibro pains, I hope to have it done the way I want, otherwise, I’ll do it another way!! This game needs a visual!

I’ll list the Wonder Woman participants and their Origin choices on Saturday, well after the midnight deadline! So get in now! PM me if you’re on Facebook or leave a comment here if you want to be on Team Marvel with me!

This entry has been sponsored by Alex’s Geek Corner bringing you whatever she wants to discuss with you. lol Somedays, I just let her have full steam! Kinda like my parents gave me full steam when I would talk out loud as my character’s and only batted an eye once or twice until I told them, I knew what I was doing. And no gruesome stuff then either. 😉

Superman Day – July 3

Leave a comment

Superman Day – July 3, 1940
In April of 1939 the New York World’s Fair, “Building The World of Tomorrow,” opened on what was once a marshy wasteland in Flushing Meadows, just east of the great metropolis. From its inception to its closing ceremonies, the Fair promoted one of the last great metanarratives of the Machine Age: the unqualified belief in science and technology as a means to economic prosperity and personal freedom. Wedged between the greatest economic disaster in America and the growing international tension that would result in World War II, The World of Tomorrow was a much-needed antidote to the depression and confusion of the times. It provided the one saving grace which all of America needed – it provided hope.
To go along with the theme of “The World of Tomorrow“, DC Comics hosted Superman Day at the fair, featuring the first public appearance of “The Man of Tomorrow“, Superman (Ray Middleton) in full costume and a live Superman radio broadcast from the fairgrounds. In this very first Superman costume, the name “SUPERMAN” is inscribed in the top part of Superman’s chest emblem and Superman’s boots are the original lace style. Superman Day was the brainchild of publicist Allen ‘Duke’ Ducovny, held in part to promote the sales of DC’s New York World’s Fair Comics, a 100-page special edition sold exclusively at the World’s Fair.

So who can name them all? LOL Special thanks to Google images, and the websites for Callie Cosplay and Yaya Han! 😀 ❤ these ladies.

Please no rude, crude or lewd comments- I will delete them. As a female cosplayer myself, I don’t appreciate them, they aren’t appreciated and they definitely are not compliments.

Otherwise enjoy!!! All of these women have done an outstanding job on their costumes! 😉

whoa… HI!

yeah yesterday’s blog never materialized… I started one, and then…scrapped it. I’m of the mind, that if I really have to force myself to write, it’s not going to happen or it’s going to be ugly, or spiral downwards into a nasty ranting post. And I hear enough drama not to add to it.
so if I can’t write anything positive, I try to keep the ranting to a minimum. And yesterday it just would’ve added fuel to a fire. Oh the fire is still burning, but I’m ignoring it, hmm? Marshmallows…if you can’t fight it, might as well use it for something fun! LOL

Today, a huge thank you to a few friends!!

From my friend, Dona Disney Princesses reimagined I love different takes on known characters, and some of these are quite brilliant.

From my friend, Sandy, a new word: Snlaughing- laughing so hard you snort, and then laughing at your snorts. perfect for me! LOL

And from my friend, David who initially sent me the link to this site. I love it!!
I’ve been reading Jolly Jack for years, and unfortunately with the issues with my ISP etc. I haven’t been able to. Today however I took a mental health break and checked it out and I was snlaughing!! LOL

I’ve gone back to the beginning of these strips and the links take you there. Enjoy!

my favorite strip; Sequential Art

A new strip; Battle Bunnies

Happy Wednesday! Go read some new funnies and let me know what you think?
Keep calm and giggle! 😀

Happy Monday! let’s get this party started [_]>

Leave a comment

What do I want? Caffeine!

When do I want it? NOW! LOL [_]> yes, the smartass is strong in this one today!

so let’s recap the weekend:

May the Fourth be with you; and it was also free comic book day! I ran some errands, picked up an outfit I ordered online for Hubs at Hot Topic. For the upcoming May 18th Star Trek “Into Darkness” movie. I’ll be in uniform at the 16 IMAX in Hamilton with my Klingon brethren of the ship; IKS pongHa’lu’. Sorry no, not a Klingon. I’m just lucky enough to serve on a Klingon ship! 😀
I’m also working on putting my uniform together. 🙂 OH yes, I am a nerd! DUH! LOL snorts

So I went to a new comic book store in Indy, I’d heard good reviews on it, well those reviewers must’ve been dudes! You know, I really really thought the whole gender stereotype about which gender reads comics was dead! OOPS! I was apparently wrong. OMG! I didn’t tag the store in my Facebook feed, because honestly I’m not giving this store any advertising.

Then I went to Keystone at the Crossing, love ❤ Brighton. I had bought a hair clip um, maybe five years ago. It was my favorite! And it broke. 😦 But they exchanged it for me, no problems. And I got cookies and coffee too! LOL 😀
After that it was Castleton Square to pick up hubs cool outfit. And *wave* hi to a friend that was behind the mall. LOL Gotta love social media. Virtual waves. 🙂 After that it was time to fuel up the car, and me. Starbucks!! Woot! Yes, I know I have an issue with caffeine. If I don’t get it, it’ll be an issue. 😛
Drove back home, stopped by Walgreen’s to grab a few items, and say HI to some friends. And then I waited till Hubs could take me to the local comic book store. I can never find it. Course it doesn’t help that he takes a different route every time. The name of the store is Temporal Comics and Sci-Fi, so he teases me, it changes location every time. LOL And no, I’m not directionally challenged. I know that Ft Wayne is up/North, Indy is down/South, NY is East, and LA is West. LOL Drives me bonkers when ppl here in North Central Indiana say they are going up to Indy this weekend. NO no no, you’re going DOWN! oi! LOL 😛
Anywho got my free comic, and a rubber bracelet thingie too! And bonus, he’s ordering a special order for me too!! Awesome!
So the organization thingie that Hubs had planned for me to do on Saturday, nope didn’t happen! oops!

Cinco de Maio; And the awesome outfit I got Hubs, didn’t fit. OMG! He’s lost a ton of weight, but the shirt was cut to small… so I ended up going to my ‘local’ Hot Topic in Muncie. And woohoo! It’s like cheers there for moi. I walk in, and they say hi Michelle! sweet!! 🙂
Oh back up, I got to the mall to early, forgot it was Sunday, and that they didn’t open till Noon. So I was in, walking with the mall walkers, cracking a few of them up. And then found a nice place to sit, read my digital book, and cheer on the walkers. I had done five laps. I was good. LOL 😛 So back to the story, I was able to return his outfit, and they refunded the money with no issues. And then…I started browsing, yeah, that’s dangerous in Hot Topic, it was buy one, get one half off. So I um…yeah. I’m the proud owner of the new Wonder Woman mini messenger bag, as well as getting a Tardis keychain for one of Hub’s friends. She loves the Eleventh Doctor. So that should make her a happy camper!
After that, my local comic book store was closed-boo! So I went to go get my nails done. I have to have them pretty for the movie. And natch, I needed my hair cut as well. Decided to keep it long, and try something different. Texted my stylist to see if she could fit me in Sunday for a color enhancement- aka- color my grays. Yeah, I’m not going gray gracefully. 😛
Then went to Starbucks…what? It was right there, fueled up the car, and drove back to Marion. Where I went to Walgreen’s again, and for the make up girlies, forget Mac’s Paintpots, time to switch to Maybelline’s Tattoo eyeshadows, you can wear alone, or add your shadow over it and watch the color pop! Not to mention that the price difference is very noticeable and this week at Walgreen’s, it’s buy one, get one half off! If you’re a rewards member, and why aren’t you? You earn 2,500 points on each one. So I got 5,000 points on my card, and saved about $20 for my eyeshadow primer. Or if it’s a lazy morning, the color looks good on it’s on. I’m wearing Bronze this morning, and it looks great by itself. 🙂
My stylist got a hold of me, and while she quit the salon she worked at, she was an independent renting a booth. She wasn’t getting enough time there. And so she decided to barter with me, for the color enhancement. I’ll be doing some flyers for her, and bought her Chinese take out. She colored my hair back to it’s beautiful brunette. And then after all of that, I decided to be socialable on facebook. And my flygirlie friends had me spewing my soda three times with the pix and comments that they made. I needed that belly laugh! Heaven help if we ever get in the same room together. LOL
And no, that organizing thing, dang. Still didn’t happen! lol oops!

And now to today; Revenge of the Sixth! LOL 😛
It’s Kavan Smith’s birthday, aka Major Lorne of Stargate Atlantis. And I’ll be posting some pix later on the photoblog to celebrate with my flygirlies!! 😀
And now, it’s time to go find some more caff, and look at my schedule for the day, and see what’s what.

OH Hubs just texted me, I have till Friday to do some of that organizing thing he wants me to do. wooooooo! oh yay, be still my heart. 😀 We have a contractor coming out to look at the Water Heater, and natch it’s in my closet. Oh well, I can go back through the clothes again and get rid of some more stuff. After losing the weight, a lot doesn’t fit me anymore. So time to get rid of it. But but it’s purple and sparkly….LOL 😛

I hope ya’ll have an awesome day! It’s another beautiful day in North Central Indiana, I have blue skies, little cloud cover, and it’s 66 degrees Fahrenheit.
Laters!

Who remembers Katy Keene?

2 Comments

From Wikipedia;

Source: bla
Katy Keene, a character created by Bill Woggon, has appeared in several comic book series published by Archie Comics since 1945. She is a model/actress/singer known as America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions.

Her comics were interactive in that readers were encouraged to submit original drawings of outfits and accessories for her and her friends to wear, as well as designs for automobiles, homes, interiors, rocket ships, trailers and boats. These designs were used in the comics with credit given to published submissions. Many issues featured paper dolls of Katy in various costumes. The character was ranked 57th in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics” list.
____________________________________________________________________

I used to love the paper dolls that came in the comics. Heck, I even made my own dresses at the time. And yes, that is before I knew it was bad to cut stuff out of your comics. 🙂 The stories never really stuck with me, it was more the art. The dolls, and fantastic outfits. And as a kid, it was more appropriate for me, than say, Batman. LOL oh so mom thought. She also approved of those romance comics, that I thought was weird. I mean seriously, have you ever read one of them? OY VEY! lol

And I found some cute pix of Katy to share! Enjoy!

and it would seem I’m not the only one that saw a connection here…
