Congratulations. You've stumbled upon the mental junk bin of a 29 year old ginger who - when she is not wearing her professional language nerd hat - dabbles in amateur photography, prose writing, bad poetry, stale jokes, obscure references, intense fangirling and long awkward silences.

    Steve Rude’s Wonder Woman <3

    These are amazing. I had never seen Wonder Woman like this until perpetua tweeted. H/T my friend!

    At this time next week I’ll be on day two of my two-week intensive Ukrainian course. This will be the fourth formal language training course that I’ll have gone through in my career thus far and the sixth language with which I’ll have gained some degree of familiarity as part of my job. It’ll be good for my career, but ow, my brain. Not to mention that my office has set a policy where they want us to do our recertification tests every six months as opposed to once a year…. so once I get this class done with, that means getting my brain pulverized eight times a year instead of only four.

    First day of boxing lessons today! While I’ve still got a lot of work ahead of me, I got a good start. I apparently have a pretty good right cross, too. This is going to be painful but awesome and though I feel tired, I also feel pretty good about this so far.

    I’m considering finally crawling out from under my gaming console rock and updating my gaming system. A PS3 seems like a good place to start for me cost-wise, but I’m looking for a good selection of games that will (to me) justify the purchase. FPS-style games are generally a no (exceptions are rare) and I lean more towards RPGs and strategy games. Choices, choices….

    Also, BioShock is a Fuck No for me. I’ve heard great things about it but I don’t need to be creeped the hell out in broad daylight.

    Running is not just a sport.

    findyour-balance:

    • It is early mornings and peanut butter.
    • It’s slipping on ice and sweating to death.
    • It’s feeling like you can’t breathe and wishing your legs would fall off.
    • It’s sticking it out on the treadmill, the road and/or the track and pushing through bad runs.
    • There is no off-season, no one to cheer you on at 5:00 a.m, and no cure for your hunger.
    • When it comes down to it, running is whatever you want it to be, whatever you need to be, and whatever you have in you.

    So a while back I donated to the lovely Becca&#8217;s (you-cant-stop-the-moriparty​) Relay for Life and I&#8217;d totally forgotten that she sent me a thing as a thank you. The thing is a tiny jar pendant full of Dream Sand from Rise of the Guardians and it made a good day even better.

    Well, I’m out of the creative funk that I was stuck in for a while. I owe a debt of gratitude and perhaps an apology to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, whose opening scene to One Hundred Years of Solitude planted the seed in my mind for my next writing project. To summarize (in case you haven’t read the book), it opens with Colonel Aureliano Buendía facing a firing squad as punishment for his crimes. It is his childhood memory of seeing ice for the first time at a traveling gypsy fair that causes the story to slowly unspool, and you learn over the course of the book that the man who is to be executed for war crimes is a far cry from the boy at the fair who studies alchemy with his father José Arcadio Buendía.

    Even the worst criminals are seldom born that way and I think the tale of that transformation makes for a fascinating story. I’m taking that narrative and centering it around an astronaut who has since her arrival on an alien world become one of the planet’s most notorious, most wanted outlaws. I’ve already written the opening - itself a nod to One Hundred Years of Solitude - and I think this one is going to be a lot of fun.

so this is how the greek phrase for cotton candy was created!(for those of you who don’t know, in Greek, the word for cotton candy is ‘μαλλί της γριάς’ which literally translates to grandma’s/an old lady’s hair) 
for more!
