My Favorite Pun

Today I was hanging out with a chap who makes incessant puns.  And I realized that my favorite pun of all time is a bit of a dud, for the following reasons: It’s in French. It requires a moderate understanding … Continue reading

The Power of Words

Yes, yes, I know, I need to be studying.  Right at the moment I’ve been looking at keto and enol tautomers so long I’m going cross-eyed and beginning to think the entire universe is made of straight lines and random … Continue reading

New Phone!

So today I got a new phone. Um… new to me. Um… one of these. Now, this is a Nokia C5-00, which were first made in 2010, so don’t laugh. There’s a music player on this thing so I don’t have … Continue reading

Motorcycles

…okay, first installment of the blog merger. Here’s the thing: I think motorbikes are great.  I have no taste whatever, I like Kawasaki and Yamaha just as much as Harley-Davidson and Triumph – I just like motorbikes. However, due to … Continue reading

In Which Rosalie Is Irritated

I don’t bash reboots of things I love unless they commit unforgivable crimes against canon. I’ve decided to watch the 2016 MacGyver.  Ladies and gentlemen, before we begin: compare. The new… The original…    Even MacGyver is shocked. However, I am … Continue reading

LATE Club – May ’16

Hello all!  As promised, LATE Club continues through the hiatus.  Incid, hiatizing is doing rather odd things to the Blue House: specifically, I’m unusually argumentative when I’m inside, even for me, and spend a fair bit of my time there in … Continue reading

Uncanon but still logical

So I was thinking – because I’m supposed to be writing a lab report about toluene contamination in groundwater – and I thought this was worth sharing. We all know – and the more conservative Christian ‘Wars freaks are intensely frustrated … Continue reading

Words

So I was working on War Stories again this evening, and Microsoft Word decided to do something silly that I thought I’d share. As you can see from the screenshot, Word has no idea what mhi vaii slanar at Alderaan means or … Continue reading

In which, again, I find Barbie annoying

Just rambling over here.  Feel free to skip this post if you don’t like first-world-problem frustration. So I’m late to the Barbie-has-a-new-body party, okay.  I think it’s nice that they’re making ‘curvy’ Barbies, so that little girls can see it’s … Continue reading

Literary Fusion

I am burbling here mainly because nobody else cares.  And if you don’t care either I probably won’t know, I’ll just be happy because I’ve said all this about this amazing invention to someone who isn’t a) its actual inventor … Continue reading

The Voice

Okay, so it’s the night of the semifinals of this TV show – this post is scheduled, internet access is dire at the studio – and I’m either eaten up with nerves – and avoiding the temptation to drink, there’s vodka … Continue reading

I’m So Happy!

Okay, so I know I’ve been posting a lot lately… I lost my journal so I’ve been writing my letters to Qui-Gon and MacGyver and… people, you know… on random scraps of paper and praying nobody finds them who can read … Continue reading

When OOCS is actually funny

I’m sorry.  This is just so utterly, cor-blimey out of character, there was nothing I could do but burst out laughing when I saw this. In the computer lab on campus. Whoops. WHAT FOLLOWS IS A RETRACTION.  I DON’T DO THESE … Continue reading

Well, That’s Unfortunate…

As many of the residents of the Blue House know only too well, names tend to come at me out of nowhere in particular, and stick like blueberry bubblegum.  Princess Hastings.  Nasriel Threeb.  Kijé Yenseh.  Baral Favain.  Saalis. Um… it turns … Continue reading

Ouch.

Okay, so I’m sure we’ve all heard the news: Sir Christopher Lee is dead.  While sad, that would not usually qualify for a post here, because let’s face it, I’m not a branch of the HoloNet, just another teenager. RIP … Continue reading

Apologia

Okay, time to be brutally honest. I’ve never been to school in my life, so I’m finding college a little weird. Sitting in a classroom, having a real live teacher standing at the front of the room and teaching; taking … Continue reading

England Stuff

Okay, yes, this post was scheduled. Right now I’m probably – literally – leaving on a jet plane. But I figured that as close to the end of my time in England as possible, I should say something about what I’ve … Continue reading

I Cannot BELIEVE…

I don’t like Lancelot. Never have. Never will unless something drastic happens. There’s one prime reason why not. So I spent all this time face-swapping a photo to make my point. Then this sneaking suspicion came over me… then I … Continue reading

The Ethical Editor

It was ANZAC Day yesterday, so I was in London for the service at Westminster Abbey, being the good Kiwi I am. One of the hymns was I Vow To Thee My Country, which I have had theological objections to … Continue reading

Another God Thing

This is a list of facts about God, with a little trick at the end. I did get these checked. Here goes: God is ultimately in charge. There are three distinct entities which form God. God does not like proud … Continue reading

A God Thing

Everybody know how the Jedi Master/Padawan ‘thing’ functions?  Good.  If you don’t, you probably haven’t spent much time on this blog, have you? But I guess there’s always Google if you get desperately stuck.  So here goes. Technically, one could … Continue reading
