I may or may not have the urge to name my first born child Stormageddon.
For those of you who don’t know, I recently immersed myself in the complete and utter nerd-dom of Doctor Who. And once I dive into something that major, I obsess. Seriously. Fucking. Obsess. So obviously, I watched the entire modern series in a matter of 2 months. Did I mention that I obsess?
Like when I saw this shirt. I needed this shirt. So I bought this shirt. I can’t wait to nerd out in it at a con or two.
So yesterday, I’m not sure if you heard this or not, but Chicago kind of drowned a little bit. Flash floods across the suburbs. Roads blocked. Commutes delayed. Cars destroyed. Scary terrifying thunderstorms. Power outages. A boat load of not good. An ARK, if you will…
Needless to say, I DID NOT leave my apartment yesterday.
How does this all relate?
My girlfriend in Arizona Facebooked, “What the hell is going on in Illinois?!” And I replied with “Stormageddon.”
And then I remembered the episode of Doctor Who in which I told Brian that our first born child would be named Stormageddon. And then I Googled it for some fun things for you.
You’re quite welcome.
If you want more Stormy Baby Pictures and Doctor Who Joy…It’s possible that I could spend hours on this Doctor Who Tumblr…
Happy Friday Everyone! Have you ever braved a terrifying storm? Snow Storms or Flooding Rain Storms? Tornadoes? I’m petrified of them, but I do love a good story…
I live in Florida where hurricanes are all the rage. I’ve been in a few. None where blow your house down bad. They just mean you go without power for a week or so. In Florida heat that can be miserable though.
I love Florida. I would not love hurricanes. Especially when there is no heat for a week after. That does not sound awesome. At all.
Not too many severe storms in So. California. ‘course we got riots, earthquakes, forest fires, and LA traffic. I can remember having to sandbag my garage townhouse a time or two to keep the damn thing from flooding. I’ve also bought a stungun which are legal in California to carry to deal with the crazies. So don’t get my Irish up. I’m a bad motherf**ker 😉
Hahahahaha! Wayne, you can TOTALLY swear on my blog. 🙂
I’ve actually fantasized about moving to The Keys. After listening to old Jimmy Buffett CD’s it sounded pretty cool 🙂 But then I went to the local mountains and went to a presentation/demonstration on lightning. Apparently Florida has more lightning strikes than any other states. I think I want to go someplace where nothing much happens like Idaho or Montana.
I fantasize about moving to Disney World, but apparently, that’s illegal according to Disney Law.
I just had a friend who drove down to Disney World from N. Carolina. It’s a great place if you like the U.N. He went nuts trying to help another friend that lost things everyplace he went.
If you move there you could get a job as a disney character trying to be nice to the hordes of kid who will bug you about everything 😉
LOL. Nah, I might accidentally say, “Fuck!” a lot.
I’m a total obsessor too. It’s quite fun actually. 🙂
Do you go to a lot of cons in Chicago? Our really good friends, Matt and Kelly Strait, are big Chicago con-goers. We went that way for Duckcon once (we’re in Minnesota though so we stick to our local cons mostly, Minicon, MarsCon, CONvergence…)
I went to my first real con last year (we did Gen Con in Indy). Then I did the Chi Toy and Game Fair…and this year I’ve got BlogHer, Gen Con, ChiTag and MAAAYBE Wizard Con.
OMG whelcome to the club. I’m a huge fan of the Doctor. But honestly, I never warmed up to Matt Smith. I’m a David Tennant fan all the way. 10th Doctor FTW!!! Did I mention that my iPhone case is a TARDIS? No joke.
Matt Smith was my first Doctor, so I enjoy him.
I’m a fan, too. What do you think of Clara? And the theories about Clara?
I like Clara…a lot. But I liked her best as a Dalek. Is that bad?
Good lord, I’m a moron. I’ve been reading your blog for weeks now and JUST realized I KNOW YOU! *sigh* Clearly I don’t look very closely at your pictures. (And you’re probably like, duh, I’ve known you were the girl I knew in high school this whole time, but in my defense there are far more Chrissys in the world than Charleens.)
Bwahahahahaha! That. Is. Awesome. I don’t blame you one bit. I DEFINITELY look different than I did back in high school. I’ve run into people who don’t recognize me at all ever.
And actually I thought it was really cool that I saw you on Katie’s blog and then you came to my blog. (Not like I was stalking or anything…just you know…noticed) I was like, WOAH. I know her! I love how the world works like that.
Total side note: I’m not going to lie, I considered writing about that one time I was a horrible chemistry lab partner and spilled acid on the table…I STILL feel like an asshole for being that ditzy. Can I apologize again for that even though its like 15 years later?
Apology accepted. Sometimes I long for the days when my biggest problem in life was a ditzy lab partner.
I hear that!
This is awesome. You got your moment of chemistry redemption. What a strange, small world the Internet is sometimes.
Tis true. But tis also excellent. Of course, Charleen was nice enough to take on the blonde Polish cheerleader, who color coded her lab book, as a lab partner in the first place… 😉
I am so glad you didn’t flood. That train station is unbelievable. I really think you need an arc or a rowboat. Your going to need space for all of your sloths so think BIG.
BWAHAHAHAHA! I only need two sloths! Then they can make…wait for it…BABY SLOTHS!
