Lord of the Spacefem

Finished Lord of the Rings tonight. You know, there's nothing quite like spending a full month reading roughly 1,300 of a story and when you get to the end you think to yourself, "Oh. Shit, I don't get it."

What happened to "And he lived happily ever after, until the end of his days."? That's my burning question, it would have been a much happier ending, after making me feel like the entire world was evil for three books, the least he could do was make me feel like it was all going to be okay from now on. Oh well. It was still a good story, the books were better than the movie, I feel basically fulfilled.

I can't decide now if I want to read the first Harry Potter book which I stole from mum or wait a few days for my amazon.com order - Backlash by Susan Fauldi - to come in. I don't think HP will take long, so I guess I can go ahead with it. In a way, it'll be almost nice to be rid of the LotR spell I've been under, it was starting to get to me (the other day I found a ring one of my girls had left in the shower and the first thought that came to me was "I've found it! My one... my precioussss..." evil!). It's normal life time again.

News Flash: you should all be honoured to know me

In a recent poll, 75% of geekizoid readers would rather go on a date with me than almost any other frequent poster. See here:

True, Geekizoid is a bathtub of trolls and losers, but I'm proud of myself for fitting in.

This week I joined the happytown e-mail list to discuss my love of Jill Sobule. They love me and even took the militant feminist quiz and thought it was funny.

I also joined the LooseLips forums on sexilicious.com, where she-net run-off recognized and adored me right away.

Even chyx.org isn't totally dying this week, we got like 5 new members and a couple of them have posted more than once. I'm happy about this, I was beginning to understand how Oprah must've felt when "Beloved" flopped at the box office.

So in short, I'm a fabulous internet personality, maybe even celebrity, and just the fact that I have a user ID on LiveJournal, #BeOS, she-net, ICQ, AIM, slashdot, keepers, Ms. and Yahoo! makes them better sites. Yes, Spacefem is truly the best thing that can happen to a website.

Or it could just mean that I'm a total loser because I'm more popular and sought-after on the internet than I am in real life.

Few real-life people know that I am spacefem, it's kind of reserved for really close friends, maybe because I'm afraid that if anybody else knew how much I put into the internet, they'd think I'm a dork and wouldn't like me. (my friends already know I'm a dork and like me anyway)

but i won't get a big head about it or anything :)

Deep down inside, I've always liked to think I was something interesting. I mean, who doesn't? But it feels like a lot of people are okay just being typical and fitting in, that's never been me. That's part of the reason, too, why I'm with who I'm with. Dave is a personality, you ask people to describe him and they just smile and shake their heads and say, "he's... dave!" Sometimes I can't decide if he's trying to blend in but failing, or if it's his secret destination to be something really out of the norm. I don't think it matters, being with him makes me feel even more like an interesting person, like i've got a back-up now, or an excuse to be a little different. I told him that once, I think it was one of those "just curious, but why do you like me?" conversations, he thought I was nuts. oh well.

What, you ask, will I do tonight? The same thing I do every night... try to TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!!
