heartbreak, old friend, goodbye it's me again [userpic]
Proof that I am, yes, indeed, a Dweeb Of The Highest Order, thanks.

Right, so let's get this out of the way first. Yes, I name my computer equipment after RP characters. This automatically gives me Geek Cred. Both in the fact that I have computer equipment and in the fact that I'm dorky enough to RP for almost four years. So for those of you who don't follow Dungeons and are wondering WTF--my Snape is married to [info]isoldest's Draco and that Snape has an illegitimate adult son named Marik who used to be an art thief. (What, shut up, it's a bloody soap opera.) Anyway, it's a hell of a lot more complicated than that, but hey. Let's stick to the basics, right? On to the serious dorkage.

Okay, so [info]djinnj has been asking me what Rhett picture I chose to put on my desktop. So here it is. Straight from the July concert we went to in NYC. Where he sweated ALL OVER ME. Hi, yes. SWEATY RHETT=TEH SEX. In this picture I would be standing...about where the line of hard drives is on my desktop, facing Rhett. [info]djinnj was towards Ken's side. *G*

Desktop! )

Please to be noting that on this screeshot Draco is beneath Severus. And Marik is beneath Draco. HAH. This provides me with no end of amusement because of course Snape tops Draco. Duh. Although the Draco topping Marik is a bit disturbing. Then again Dungeons always has been slightly incestuous...

And now...meet my new Severus.

The dreaded cranky Professor Snape! )

Isn't he sexy? Yeah. He thinks so too. You should see his Apple glow.

This is Draco.

The loveably neurotic Master Draco! )

Draco used to be happy that his hard drive was bigger than Severus's. It brought him great pleasure. Now, however? Snape's is a little bigger. And Draco's sulking a bit. But that's okay because I think Severus is thinking up ways to show him exactly how best his new....endowment can be put to use. Hubba-hubba, wink-wink. I think Draco will be won over. He does like being mounted, after all.

This is Marik.

The bemused bastard son! )

Like any good art thief, Marik likes to hide his black robe and wrap himself in Botticelli's Birth of Venus. Check out his back. He thinks he's styling. Naked blondes and all. Just call him Pimp Daddy Marik.

The bastard son's arse! )

But deep down underneath he's really a little cantankerous gloomy gus just like his Father. We won't mention the number of times he's decided to just...stop playing for ten or fifteen seconds just to express his displeasure--usually about being forced onto the T. Arsehole. But I love him anyway. Most of the time.

And here they all are together. One wee happy--well, okay, perhaps that's overstating it a bit given that they're all Snapes or Malfoys--family.

The Snape-Malfoys! )

My dorkage? Knows no bounds, you guys. Seriously. NO BOUNDS.

Oh Celeste...

People. I have worked so hard today it's not funny and tomorrow's going to be just as insane. Sigh. I like my goofing-off-at-work days so much better, thanks. Ah well. I'm off for three days next week to go see MCR, so it evens out.

So my new MacBook arrived today and it is the bomb. I just downloaded something at 1200KB per second. DUDE. I've never gone above 300 before.

I shifted 20 GB of crap over from my old computer tonight and I still have 100 GB on the hard drive. THIS ROCKS OMG. And it now has as the desktop a photo of Rhett Miller AS HE SWEATED ON ME, PEOPLE, and it has been dubbed Severus (as usual for my laptops) but this time it's actually appropriate because it's a black MacBook rather than a white one. So now I have the whole Snape family: a black laptop named Severus, a white external HD named Draco, and a black iPod covered with a skin of Botticelli's Venus named Marik. (That last will only be amusing to people who follow Dungeons, I'm afraid, and are accquainted with Snape's illegitimate former art thief son, but trust me IT'S FUNNY. Well. Okay. To me at least.)

There will be pictures to come tomorrow and you can all point your fingers and mock me for my Cult of Macintosh geekage. :D

Back on the bandslash front, [info]ze_dragon and I have decided that Insanejournal needs a bandslash comm. So. We made one. [info]hoodies. If you're over at Insanejournal, feel free to join...it's open for fic, art, recs, squee, you name it. Slash, het, femmeslash and gen are all welcome and the order of the day is to have fun. So hop over and join in. We may even be having fic challenges at times. Because the EYELINER LOVE MUST BE BROUGHT TO INSANEJOURNAL. *nods sagely and pushes all IJ bandslashers towards the comm* (Speaking of IJ, let me just say [info]squeaky rocks. I've been in communication with him tonight, and he's just beyond fantastic.)

Also, Dragon and I may have another bandslashy project in the works. We shouldn't be allowed to hang out together, really. We come up with mad ideas. Trust me. And I may have convinced her to not only go see FOB in Massachusetts with me in Nov, but also maybe even the next night in Connecticut. MUAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA. Do y'all know what I'll be like if I see Patrick Stump two nights in a row? Yeah. Slight implosion.

And on the the Harry Potter side, oh my God, you guys. I have two recs for you today. So you know how [info]icarusancalion writes like the BEST Percy ever? Yeah. Well, she wrote a wee bit of Snape/Percy for me and you guys. Oh my God. You have to read it because it's awesome. Small Sacrifices. Go. Read now. I heart Icarus's Percy more than I can possibly say. And her Snape? Is fantabulous.

And [info]draco_a_malfoy drew a truly gorgeous Draco piece (with implied Snape/Draco) called Necromancy, based on a joke I made pre-DH about Draco doing necromancy. I just. The colours are incredible and the composition is gorgeous and it makes me ache, y'all. It's so beautiful.

*hearts on [info]icarusancalion and [info]draco_a_malfoy*

Still behind on email/comments..that may continue the next day or two. Work is...sigh. Yeah.
