    So I Got A Tattoo

    Or, Why You Should Be Listening To King Falls AM So yeah, that’s a thing I did.  Not really an Em-sounding thing, is it? I’m, unequivocally, not so tough – my best friend calls me Marshmallow, I cry if the wind blows too hard, and I’m associated in the minds of my friends with things like unicorns and baby elephants.  I’ve thought about it before. I’ve always liked the thought of having a tattoo on my wrist, but 1) I couldn’t think of what I wanted and 2) I wasn’t sure if I could handle the actual process of getting the tattoo. It was just few months ago that I was thinking…

    The Most Insane Summer

    I don’t think I’ve ever had such a busy summer. It started off with accomplishing a dream I’ve had for years – finally escaping my food service dungeon to work for myself – and then it felt like I never stopped moving. That’s part of the reason you’ve barely heard from me – I haven’t been able to stop to breathe, let alone write a blog post!  After finally shedding the old green apron, I spent a week in Chicago, Illinois, visiting my best friend and making a complete tourist of myself. It was THE BEST, and I can’t WAIT to go back. (Most likely in February 2019!) Chicago is such a beautiful city,…

    The First Annual Emcademy Awards – Part 2

Right?     Most Likely To Give Me Anxiety Before It’s Even Out Ahahahahaha thinking about this movie too hard makes me vaguely queasy but it’s fine.      Video Game I Always Play Again Instead of Playing The New Games In My Steam Library Who needs new games when I can be Queen of Ferelden for the 1131st time?     Movie Boy So Pretty I Wanna Cry He does this on purpose, and it’s very…

    The First Annual Emcademy Awards – Part 1

    I’ve already done a post about movies in recent memory, but seeing as the night before last was the most glamorous night of the year (they clearly didn’t see me in the Agent Carter undercover dress at Dragon*Con last year – the more glitter the more glamour, amirite?) I couldn’t stop myself from staging my very own awards show. It’s basically the same thing, except instead of a bunch of crusty old dudes who eat pretension for breakfast giving awards to people in pretty clothes, it’s me, Em, a nerd in stretch leggings, who eats eggs for breakfast like a normal person. The Academy’s award categories often contain movies I have never heard…

    50 Things About Me

    my favorite color is purple, but my favorite color combination is red and gold unsurprisingly, I am a Gryffindor I didn’t meet my best friend for the first 3 years of our friendship – we texted and Skyped ever day. I finally got to meet her this summer, and it WAS THE BEST THING.  my favorite savory food is seafood fettuccini alfredo – particularly with scallops if left to my own devices I would consume my weight in diet ginger ale I drink every other soft drink with lime juice – I carry it with me everywhere I spent several years appearing at conventions as a Doctor Who cosplayer, and…
