Oh Hai!

This is awkward. Been how long since I have been on here? Wow, that long! Huh, sorry. I've gotten kind of caught up this new thing. Tumblr. What's Tumblr? I'm not 100% on what exactly it is, but when I try to explain it, I say it's like Twitter, but without the 140 character limit and you can post anything. It's kind of fun and you end up finding some pretty neat and interesting people! And because of Tumblr I've started another website!

It's a little different from any site I've made before. In the past I've been more inclined to do something personal, me opening up, is not that hard. I like talking, as long as the talk is interesting.

But no, I didn't not make one of those sites. No, instead I created more of a fan site. What is this magical site I speak of? Did you see the movie Inglourious Basterds? [See I ask this any time someone tries to figure out what I am doing. I usually get a "No." or a "No, but I really wanted to! I heard it was ________.] But if you did see the movie, then you obviously know who the Bear Jew is. And if you have heard of the Bear Jew, then you should have heard about the site I made. Bear Jew Facts.

It's kinda like Chuck Norris facts, but way better. The Bear Jew did an amazing thing, but I won't spoil it for you. And because of this, Bear Jew Facts are a hundred times more interesting and funny. Just saying. Now, was I inspired by Chuck Norris facts? Hell no. Ever heard of Zachary Quinto? Well if you haven't, what the hell! The man is a GQMF and deserves to be known! Sorry, nerd tangent there. Back to the point. Zachary Quinto. Well, that lovely site, Tumblr, has awesome sites all over it and one of the awesomest sites you could find would have to be Zach Facts. And that good people of the internet is where I found inspiration for Bear Jew facts.

And that has become pretty successful! I have to admit, really proud of it. Not to mention, we have expanded too. After about month, a new friend of mine, Ingrid from Australia asked if we could make a twitter and since then she has helped the site expand not only to twitter, but to a mysapce and facebook page too! And recently, we both started the Eli Roth Network. It is a work in progress (along with other projects) but we are doing well! It's keeping me busy, giving me something to do outside of just work and school. Not to mention, I've been able to meet more people who share the same appreciation for Eli Roth! Been a fan of his for a while, since I was about 15 or 16, but since then, I haven't really been able to talk about him, no one knew who he was, or if they did, they didn't want to talk. Lame. But now, it's fun! I get to talk about him, his movies, or horror movies in general! Kind of exciting stuff.

Outside of the internet (because life, yes, that rarity, I do try to have one sometimes) I have been doing the general, going to work and heading to class. Hockey season has started, and despite how excited I was, I have only been to one game so far this season. The lack of money coming from only working two days a week, and the Lightning not offering the $20 student tickets any more has put a damper on my hockey festivities. My mom said, the best seats are always at home any way. I told she needs to come to a game before she can say that. Best seat is in the arena. Sometimes, haha, depends on the fans, but despite how insane some Lightning fans are or how rude the opposing team act, I do enjoy being at the Forum with friends watching the game. This season is going to have be a pick and choose season though, can't just go to all the games I can. I'm on budget now.

Something new I am venturing on happens to be something I've been wanting to do since the summer before last, but never acted on it. Lazy? Probably. If I had done it then, I would have more money and wouldn't have to take loan from my Aunt, but that is the past and if one thing pisses me off the most, it has to be wondering "what if" so lets just look at it from this point. Monday night was the recruitment night for the Tampa Bay Derby Darlins! They are the league in the Tampa area for flat track ROLLER DERBY! I saw them at the Red Bull Flugtag when Tampa hosted it and wanted to join. It only took me a year to hop in my car, drive over the bridge and go to a recruitment night. And I'm glad I did, because this should be a lot of fun! Practices start Monday and I'm going to by equipment today after class.

Along with learning to play derby, I need to figure out what my alter ego is going to be. I'm really leaning towards the Wizard of Oz theme, so I have a few ideas that go along with that, but I have other ideas on that list of potential names. You will have to tell me which one(s) you like.
  • Dorothy Wails [but there is a good chance I won’t be able to use it because it sounds to close to a name that is already taken and no one really seems to like it]
  • The HarleyQuinn Kid [because Harley Quinn is my favorite villain from Batman, but since I’m not her, I could be the kid]
  • Dismemberin Dorothy OR
  • Dorothy Dismemberin [I know they are the same, but one may sound better then the other AND I get my real name in there too]
  • Death Proof Butterfly [One of the girls on _bb came up with this and I love Death Proof] OR
  • Death Proof Dorothy [One of the girls on tumblr came up with this combo and I'm kinda liking it!]
  • Null’n Void [Good friend of mine, Will, thought this one up for me and it works since my last name is Null]
And that good people is all I have to say for now. I know it has been a while, and for me to say I'm going to try and come on here and write more is an empty promise. If I write, I write, because I need to do it more. Till the next time, I of course leave you with this:

Despite my lack of going to games, I still love hockey. Don't question my commitment to sparkle motion.
