1) NANO FAIL. Well, still got 20k out of it, but wow. What a half mad November, even without the attempt to write a novel. If after Christmas everyone could just keep poking and yelling at me to finish it by my birthday of March 24, that would be great though. Much Obliged.

2) On that note and as a stupid point, Captain Kirk before the Reboot was an Aries like me (March 22, it's like, SPITTING DISTANCE of my b-day). I WAS SO FRICKIN' UPSET WHEN HE GOT BUMPED UP TO CAPRICORN, YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

Don't worry, Kirk, you'll always be an Aries to me. *HUGS*

3) I finally posted the recap video of the ONTD_Startrek Halloween party. I can't even you guys. I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS COMMUNITY. TOO. AMAZING.

4) So, my ambition has gotten the better of me YET. AGAIN. I want to send out
HOLIDAY CARDS


And by "I want to send out" I mean "NO REALLY GUYS, YOU'RE REALLY GOING TO GET SOMETHING FROM ME THIS YEAR, HONEST!" SO. If you want in...
[Poll #1495527]

The results are locked--only I can view them, so fear not!

Also, if you are offering to send cards...tell me? ^_^;; I'd LOVE to get a card!


5) I can't wait for [livejournal.com profile] hearts_blood and [livejournal.com profile] lloire's Decemberween/Januarymas party this weekend. HEEEEEEEEEEELLO SOUTH OF ALBANY AND HOLIDAY BOOZING GEEKERY.

THERE WILL BE MEAD. AND MULLED WINE. MY HANGOVER WILL BE THE STUFF OF LEGENDS.


6) AAAAAAAAAAARGH OMG WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO GET PEOPLE FOR CHRISTMAS??? *HEAD DESK!*


And that's all.

Nella, Out.
The Official NYC ONTD_Startrek Box of Communistic Party Booze is back in my safe possession. And I've got to say, for all the clanking noise it made in the back of my car while I drove home, when I opened it, there was a surprising lack of booze compared to last time.

WELL DONE, MY TREKKIE GIRLS (AND BOY). WELL DONE. SCOTTY MOTHERFUCKING APPROVES.



God I wish I had time to edit all that video from the Halloween party....



On another note: Oh God the old links one finds without trying. Oh God, I remember that night of spontaneous "From Eroica with Love" cosplay. I was such A BABY THEN. I feel so...OLD and JADED now. XD


OMG. OMG I KNOW IT'S NOT UNTIL MARCH 20TH, BUT I AM IN. IN LIKE MOTHERFUCKING FLYNN. PHILADELPHIA, BEND OVER, 'CAUSE THAT WEEKEND YOU BELONG TO THE MERLIN FANDOM AGAIN.

LET THE ARTHURIAN DEBAUCHERY BEGIN AGAIN!!!


On a more serious note, if you are looking at this, scratching your heads and thinking "Merlin? There's a Merlin show? And a Merlin Con?"--

YOU. ME. MY PLACE. MY COPIES OF THE EPISODES. ALCOHOL OF YOUR CHOICE. SERIOUSLY, WATCH THIS SHOW WITH ME, AND YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO COME!!--

TO PHILLY WITH ME. THAT IS.
A while ago, [livejournal.com profile] grey_bard wrote a little fic for the Trek Novel Fest called "Species Diversity and You". I was asked if I would be interested in making a fanfilm version of the tale, to which I thought to myself--

HELL YEA I WILL.

We unveiled it at the Star Trek Halloween party we threw last night--and now it's finally up for the rest of you to view! XD


Species Diversity and You: A Sexual Safety Presentation
Rating: Probably would be PG-13 if the MPAA rated fanfilms, which it doesn't, thank god.
Warnings: Innuendo, humor and mild subversiveness
Spoilers: Passing reference to an element of the Enterprise episode "Cogenitor"
Summary: A presentation from Starfleet Medical's Sexual Safety program, presented by excessively earnest representatives.

Species Diversity and You: A Sexual Safety Presentation.

By Antonella Inserra and A. Bertram Wilberforce

From the story by Grey Bard

I know it's Friday, but the sentiments of the above icon are the same.

Everything and anything that could happen today at work, is happening. Lady!Boss is out, which means in the immortal words of the Minister from Blazing Saddles: 'Kid, you're on your own."

However, it's warms the cockles of my heart to know no matter what, the universe deems it necessary that I be sprawled out on top of a table, fiddling with the projector's settings just when the rather cute looking computer program specialist who's giving the presentation I'm setting the projector up for walks in. And I DO MEAN SPRAWLED. Damnit Jim those tables are extremely large, and the projector sits right in the middle! I don't have the arm length to handle that without crawling on top of the table!

*HEAD DESK* Well, at least I'm good for amusing rather cute tech-y boys on Friday mornings.

STILL SITTING ON SENDING OUT THE INFORMATION FOR MY ST_NYC_GQMFS HALLOWEEN PLANS. *DIES* Just waiting on ONE minor-but-really-not-SO-minor detail...but other than that, the info is--NEARLY completely typed and ready to go out. But goddamn. There's no way in HELL I'm doing any meet-up planning in November, much as I love THAT ENTIRE COMM.

Well, at least my HAIR WAS CUT LAST NIGHT WOOOOOOOOH!! INVERTED BOB FTW! They did blow it out for free as I was a newbie at the salon, so it's PIN straight right now. The novelty of silky smooth straight hair amuses me, but tomorrow it'll be back to the regularly scheduled programming of curls, AND with the addition of some SERIOUS organic weekly hair oil masque thingie that is suppose to keep my hair wonderfully shiny and curly without getting oily and heavy. Although, if Agent Anachronism ever needs a Evil!Mirror!Universe version of herself, the evil Anachronism is SOOOO going to have straight hair. I feel so…DIABOLICAL with straight hair. MWHA. MWHAHAHAHA.

AH WELL back to work. Though, I really should get a picture of my hair, for posterity's sake.

Toodle-pip!
Behind the scenes photos from the movie led to a request on my part for a new macro, which lead to this:




THANK YOU FANDOM. MY NIGHT HAS BEEN MADE. IMMA GONNA GO AND STARE SOME MORE AND...DROOL, OR SQUEE, OR GUSH BLOOD FROM MY NOSE FOR BIT NOW. THANKS.
A new umbrella strong enough to be used in self defense.

Now all I need is a steel-brimmed bowler hat and a smoking hot yet classy dame as my partner and I'm set!

(hrum, I should look into acquiring an Avengers icon or two...)
I'M SO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORED.

So have a picture of who protects my work desk from the raging infected mobs and the stupidity of humanity.



THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S CHRIS REDFIELD AND EV-E!!

You may now return to your normally scheduled programming.
I finally cave for the twitter craze...to make a fandom puppet with a friend.

In the fine tradition of FMLMccoy [livejournal.com profile] ncc_gqmf and I have started FML accounts for District 9 characters.

fookmylife - Wikus Van Der Merwe

CJohnsonFML - Christopher Johnson (WHY YES, I AM THE BELEAGUERED ALIEN. IT'S WHAT I DO, PLAY BELEAGUERED SORTS.)


God, I've got D-9 on the BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN....
So, I was at [livejournal.com profile] mirroriste's place today after work; watching Trek, knitting, and generally hanging out. We were chatting about this and that, and in ANOTHER case of my world being AN INSANELY SMALL ONE, I came to the startling realization that I had run into her once LONG before [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek.

The Time was Summer 2008. The place was NY Comic Con. I was still living with my parents on Long Island, and that morning I had made plans for a lazy summer's day, one of pool and gardening. That was when I got the call from Lindsay; "If you can get to the Javits Center by 3 pm and be my camera bitch, I can get you into Comic Con for free. You could catch the Hellboy 2 panel!" said she.

With a quick shower and a mad dash to the train station, I made it to Comic Con in time! And after enjoying various panels and things, I paid my pound of flesh by being Lindsay's camera whore as she video-interviewed various people about their cosplay costumes for a website she was interning for.

[livejournal.com profile] mirroriste WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WE INTERVIEWED.

For the LIFE of me, I had been trying to figure out WHY her voice and face were so familiar! But as we discussed our respective fandom histories, she brought up that she had been in the Kingdom Hearts fandom, and a little light bulb went off in my head.

"Do you cosplay?" I asked. Yes. "Did you go to Comic Con?" Yep! "...Were you King Mickey Organization XIII style?" ...Yea?

THE INTERVIEW'S EMBEDDED BELOW! GO AND WATCH!! Clips of her are interspersed within the vid!!



OMG THE HELL? FANDOM DESTINY, STOP FUCKING WITH ME.
Over at [livejournal.com profile] st_nyc_gqmf, there a post for voting for the date for a beach/movie night in Far Rockaway, some time August 17-22.

GO HERE FOR PLANNING POST DATE VOTING AND DETAILS!>
OK, still having finished throwing together another recap post, but IN THE MEANWHILE!--

Are you in traveling distance of NYC?

Are you in love with Trek in all of it's wonderful incarnations?

Are you ready for some CRACK?

ARE YOU A GQMF?

THEN CAPTAIN PIKE WANTS YOU TO JOIN STARFLEET

<
[livejournal.com profile] st_nyc_gqmfs


FOR ALL YOUR METRO-NY STAR TREK MEET UP NEEDS, HOPES, WANTS AND ASPIRATIONS!

Go! Join up, check out the first post, and punch it Mr. Sulu!

NELLA OUT.
This post is an INCREDIBLY long time in coming; mea culpa. But better late than never, right?

...Right?

So, I hosted the second ONTD_Startrek meet up at my place, and we had ourselves a TOS Marathon, which of COURSE required the TOS Drinking Game. Which required…well, booze. Lots of Booze. And I believe the bacchanal that ensured can be summed up in two words, which I feel I am required by LAW to inform ya'll about:

WOKKA SAKI.

What? What's that you say? What the fuck is Wokka Saki??? WELL DON'T WORRY, MY BROTHERS-IN-GEEKERY, CAUSE I'VE MADE A MOTHERFUCKING MACRO TO EXPLAIN THIS MARVEL: )

MIGHT YOU HAVE INCLUDED VIDS OF YOUR TOS MARATHON AT WHICH THE WOKKA SAKI WAS CONSUMED??? YOU BET YOUR SWEET ASS I DID! Below the cut find out how we PARTIED HARD, bobbed for apples K. MARU STYLE, and had another motherfucking SING ALONG! 'CAUSE THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MIX GIRLS AND OLD SCHOOL TREK! )

SO LISTEN UP! IF YOU ARE IN THE NYC AREA, OR CAN BE, GO OVER TO THIS POST, CAUSE WE'RE PLANNING BRUNCH MOTHERFUCKERS, AND IT'S GOING TO BE EPIC.


NELLA OUT.
YOU GUYS. I'm STILL recovering from Saturday. Well done, Mr. Sulu, well done.

I'd have posted this sooner, but Sunday was a wee bit hectic for me as I had to book it out to Long Island for my dad's birthday, get my apartment into some semblance of order beforehand so my roommate wouldn't excommunicate me, and hope to God that my video camera with all the recap footage wasn't working merely because all of my batteries were inexplicably dead, and not because I had done something idiotic to my camera in my drunken revelry.

ALSO, ya'll forgot quite a few personal items at my place, which is always the mark of a party partied hard.

All in all, it was quite the Star Trek bacchanal, and I'm still trying to remember it all outside of "OMG THAT WAS AWESOME".

AND SO, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, I HEREBY OPEN THE

ONTD_STARTREK NYC TOS MARATHON FRIENDING MEME
