Oh hey look. A Sherlock tee shirt
that I think (finally) is actually pretty.
Unfortunately for me, I prefer more abstract designs on my tee shirts. Le Sigh
. I really need to find at least one Sherlock tee before 221B Con.
I think most people who know me know how I feel about fitspo pics and slogans. And if you don't know
know, you can probably intuit from my general hatred of social programming and generalized statements. So this Tumblr post
pleased me immensely
. FUCK FITSPO BULLSHIT. JUST FUCK THAT NOISE.
At Sunday's session with Andrew (where he near killed me, yay!) he mentioned that I was starting to visibly lean down. I told him that was largely due to my absolute lack of appetite lately and not to expect similar rapid progress for much longer. =/ I pitched to him my latest idea regarding long-term goals, which is to spend the rest of the year getting as strong as possible and then, starting in January, leaning down. He said that worked great because that's already what we're doing. So...that was easy.
My reasoning for the goal is that I'm going to 221B Con
in April 2014 and I'd like to cosplay Sebastian Moran
provided the BBC doesn't provide us with a specific and contradictory styled one in Season 3. Hm. Maybe I should ping my Spoiler!Sherlock peeps about that. I haven't been actively avoiding spoilers for Season 3 (I don't have spoiler tags nixed on Tumblr), but I also don't click links that say spoilers, either.
I've seen some good Rule 63'd Moran cosplays, but hardly any of them convince me of the character being a real badass
. I want my arms, shoulders, and legs to say I can and will fuck your shit up, yo
. Also, I think it would be awesome to be strong enough to fireman carry a cosplaying (handcuffed!) John Watson away for nefarious purposes
. That would be a great photoset.
In other news, boy did I not feel like performing at KCRF yesterday. Spotty audiences aren't helping my motivation. It was a decent enough crowd, but if it weren't for the three groups of friends I had in attendance, it would have been a shit tipping day. There was a group of four tables right in the middle of the feast hall that didn't tip my first round. Nearly twenty people (out of a crowd of ~60) and not a single fucking dollar. I stopped dancing and put my hands out in an "are you shitting me" gesture and asked them "Seriously? None of you?" They all shook their heads and looked down at their tables. I gave a shrug, flipped them off (I was only holding up my zills, honestly!), and shimmied to the tables behind them where my awesome graduate students
were sitting. I got a few dollars from the cheap-ass douchebags the next two sets, but only one person at each table both times.
My last performance at KCRF's Event-Formerly-Known-As-Smoker will be Columbus Day, Monday, October 14. I've already planned to take off the following Tuesday because it's KU's Fall Break. But I'm seriously considering taking the rest of the week off because FUCK I could use some vacation time. I'm headed to Indianapolis the first weekend of November, but visiting my parents is really not
a vacation. Nice, but not a vacation.
And speaking of work, I've got a huge stack of data entry stuff sitting on my desk...pitter patter let's get at 'er. Bleh.
