I may be too much of a dork…

December 31, 2008

But rather than telling you why, through some long and obscure story that provides no substantial evidence, I thought I’d show you, by presenting the following conversations.

“Guess what it is.  I’ll give you a hint: it’s a cross between the two most awesome things in the universe.”

Geri: “Doctor Who and chocolate cheesecake?”

Vampire RP: “Edward’s bird was two trees away, it heard everything and so did Edward. He was confused and surprised. “How can I get her memories back?””

Geri: “A fob watch?”

And then there are the dreams I have.  Not dreams about Doctor Who, oh no.  To my recollection, I have never dreamt about Doctor Who.  I dream instead about America’s Got Talent (started in August, last AGT-related dream happened around the middle of December.)  I dream about Home Alone, owing to the fact that we watch the movies every year.  And I don’t just dream about watching the movies.  Or even watching new movies.  Oh, no.  I dream about putting myself into the movies, or else putting the characters into situations where I can directly interact with them.  Kevin McCallister = immortal sparkly vampire, anybody?  I’m sure that part of the reason I do this is because I’m a trifle bored with seeing the same exact stories every year.  Part of it is because I’m both creative and a trifle sadistic and would love to come up with methods of my own for beating up hapless thieves.  I don’t know, but I rather wish I would stop.  I enjoy the movies the way they are (although I do envy Kevin to a degree; he had far more adventures in two years than most people have in their lifetimes.)


Then there is the “Time Lord” game over at TV Tropes.  The game is never acknowledged, and the rules are not written, but it basically functions as follows: In any medium that features a character who moves through time and/or space in an insanely unorthodox manner without a reasonable explanation as to why, someone must make a Wild Mass Guess that said character is a Time Lord.  For example, Santa Claus.  Even if said character does have a decent explanation for their actions, there is still the chance that SOMEONE will figure out a way for them to be a Time Lord.  For example, Doc Brown of Back to the Future.  (His personality is locked in a watch, which he lost/sold.  Bits of knowledge show up occasionally, though.)  Well, I seem to be irrevocably programmed to do this sort of thing.  Admittedly, it does explain why Claus is never around anymore…

And there you have it.  I’m not really sure if this qualifies me as an actual dork, but it was lovely to vent for awhile.
