I like tea, and puns, and sweaters.
After watching the YouTube footage I SO want to go to a HGatPS concert.

[in•tro•vert] #4: Talking to Myself is up, 12 hours early for all you late-night tumblr folks.
I’m still very disappointed with how the color is turning out in these digital scans. This wasn’t my best watercolor achievement anyway, but it should still look better than this.
Damn you, Kinko’s!
If anyone knows a better way to scan watercolors, could you let me know? (Cue ‘Let People Answer This’ button)
Nothing made me realize how much I talk to myself all the time when I’m at home like the arrival of summer and the necessity of opening my windows to cool down the house.

Being on this show would have been my dream as a child if Ninja Warrior had existed when I was a child and I had had a TV so I could have known about it. Why couldn’t I have gone to Ninja Warrior camp instead of gymnastics camp?
My recent reading has caused me for some reason to remember myself as I was when a young girl, reading high Romances and seeing myself simultaneously as the object of all knights’ devotion—an unspotted Guenevere—and as the author of the Tale. I wanted to be a Poet and a Poem, and now am neither…
It may be that this is the desire of all reading women, as opposed to reading men, who wish to be poets and heroes, but might see the inditing of poetry in our peaceful age, as a sufficiently heroic act. No one wishes a man to be a Poem. That young girl in her muslin was a poem; cousin Ned wrote an execrable sonnet about the chaste sweetness of her face and the intuitive goodness shining in her walk. But now I think—it might have been better, might it not, to have held onto the desire to be a Poet?

I didn’t botch it, and I didn’t do an amazing job. I kind of just okay’d it.
WOOPS. They pulled it, for some reason. Now it’s back up. Thanks for your patience, everyone.
Dude, I’m so pumped to listen to this. Even though podcasts have existed since like 2005 I have only just now remembered that they’re still a thing and that sometimes people who are interesting talk on them and you can listen to them on your iPod. I feel so technological. Yesssssssssssss.
I’m really happy to be in the category of “people who are interesting”
You and Maureen Johnson and Bryan Lee O’Malley. :D
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
– Haruki Murakami
Okay, listen, hipster Murakami. I’m not sure if I wholeheartedly agree with what you said. First of all, yes, it’s a good idea to base what you read on what you want to read, not what everyone else is reading, but a lot of the books that “everyone else” is reading are actually pretty good and you should probably read them. I don’t think that the fact that a lot of people are reading a particular book should be a valid reason not to read it. Second of all, how much of the sheeple majority of “everyone else” even reads at all? And if so, is everyone actually reading the same thing? Third of all, people are actually all different, so even if we read the same books (which I’m not entirely convinced is even happening) we will, necessarily, all have different thoughts about them. People, it turns out, are actually capable of making thoughts, not just thinking whatever is already put into their brains. I feel you have discredited people with what you say. Also, I tend to be of the persuasion that everyone isn’t actually sheeple, anyway. You’re failing to imagine other people complexly and I am affronted.
