i got as a freebie (imagine that! :D) at a Mad Hatter themed party on Caledon. It was designed by Terry "To-a-T" Lightfoot and it's called, "Maverick Waistcoat - Diamond Jim"

you can find her stores on

Caledon Eyre

Port Babbage

and

Caldedon Glengarry


the shirt comes in longsleeve white and shortsleeve with sleeve cuff attachments and longsleeved red

the jeans?



say it with me......a freebie.

now, i know you're asking, "but Monroe! where'd u get those awsome shoes!?"

well...



i got these on the SAH hunt as well from a store called Robbish


annd last, but not least, i always have on my Emdash hud. It's a personal teleporter/item rezzer hud of win made by the incredible Cheshyr Pontchartrain who owns,runs and makes many of the things for sale in the Novatech store/sim on Galifrey

Better late than ever (or the holy-shit-i-can't-believe-i-haven't-updated-this-in-so-long! blog post)

uuughh....ok...since the last post...erm...well i'll make it multiple choice.

Monroe has been:

A. Contemplating his existence on the rim of a volcano

B. Fighting Daleks at Canary Warf

C. Making up acronyms for imaginary technological devices. For example: F.A.S.T.- Ferrite Antennae Scrambling Transmitter

D. Looking for a job


the answer,in case you were wondering, is "A" (in a metaphoric sense), none of B, but i have been watching a LOT of Doctor Who...oh lord Waters of Mars THE END OF TIME HOLY SHIT!!! OH AND THE NEW WHO IS AMAZING!!! and waaay to much of C&D, but there's good news on D...i've become employed :D


So...to make up for the fact that RL is KICKING MAH ASS, I've decided to write one ginormous extra grande nacho supreme chicago style biggie sized Costco 40 pack blog post to make up for it! How does that sound??





Alright lets get to it!

Can you believe i've seen a buncha movies since i posted last?

WOW.....I mean....WOW!!!



Dreamworks really knocked it outta the park this time! The way they incorperated the 3-D into the story was really smart. They didn't do that obvious stuff that some 3-D movies feel they have to do to remind you that you're watching a 3-D movie. Know what I mean? The explosions, robots, and hell EVERYTHING about this movie was amazing! The 3D was just the icing on this cinematic cake.

I can't wait to see what they come up with next!










btw- my favorite character? B.O.B.




^__^



SEE? THIS IS HOW LONG IT'S BEEN SINCE I'VE POSTED SOMETHING!!!! I SAW ALL THESE FILMS WHEN THEY WERE STILL IN THE THEATRES!!! *wilhelm scream*






and



oh and the last of tennan't episodes were heartwrenching and wonderful at the same time, but Mr. Matt Smith....

well...



i'll leave that for another post...

ok...here are a few videos i've found for u to enjoy :)



























So again...




I'm sorry i haven't posted sooner. I know there are some SL friends who liked reading this bit of internet sillyness and i'll do my dammedest not to let so much time pass again....really...it's just like exercising...it's a matter of consistency and dedication to what you want to do.


So here goes nothing!

*edges out onto the diving board*

Boing....boing...fliip....SPLASH!

Please allow me to introduce myself Im a man of wealth and taste

Well i guess you're probably wondering who I am and what I'm all about.


Well...here's the problem....

I've been trying to come up with a simple,no frills way to describe who I am as a person and a human being.

I think i may have it....

At first glance, I probably appear to be a somewhat ordinary,somewhat average looking fellow.

Calm, harmless, at ease.

But this is by design.

You see, it is through decades of research and rigorous training that I have crafted this facade of normalcy.

And now, through intense concentration,I am able to function in a social setting.

I can speak at length with educated people aboutpertinent matters of public importance,such as literature, or the current political climate in Europe.

I am capable of conversing with you without ever revealing that just underneath the surface of this manufactured veneer there hides an altogether different person.

A monster, some might say.

My alter-ego.

He is the opposite of the image I project.

He is the antithesis of Cool.

He is the LAST person you want to get trapped in a conversation with.

He is The Geek.

The obsessive science fiction movie watching, comic book collecting, Monty Python dialogue memorizing, Dungeons and Dragons playing GEEK that I struggle daily to keep hidden from the world.

But The Geek Wants Out.

He wants to talk to you.

He wants to give you his doctoral dissertation on why The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is the greatest fucking film of all time!

He wants to bitch slap you because you've never seen Big Trouble in Little China. What? Have you been living in a fucking cave?!

He wants to kick your ass in Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.

And he will.

Because he's a fucking Geek.

And he wants his toys.

He wants the complete set in mint condition, still in the box.

He wants every item on the planet that is even remotely related to Ultraman.

Because Ultraman is Airwolf!

He could give a squirt of piss about sports or politics or rhetoric.

Such things are of no consequence to him.

What matters is the release date of the next Lord of the Rings movie!

You see, The Geek can't wait.

The Geek has no patience.

He wants what he wants when he wants it.

And all he wants is stupid shit!

He wants his own Tardis.






He wants his own light saber.






He wants to buy a DeLorean and he wants to drive it 88 miles per hour.





He wants movies.

He wants to see the Director's Cut.

He wants the impossible to find Japanese bootleg with 6 minutes of never-before-seen footage.


He wants to watch Blade Runner. Again.


He wants to watch Brazil. Again.


He wants to watch A Clockwork Orange. Again and Again!


But I deprive him of these things, as best I can, until I can no longer ignore his voice screaming in my head.


I am Jekyl.


He is Hyde.


I am Bruce Banner.


He is the Hulk.


Especially the Hulk from issues #272 to #378.


But no longer!


I am putting a stop to all this nerdy shit right now!


I'm an adult, for Christ's sake!


And this body isn't big enough for the both of us.


One of us has to go, and it's gonna be him.

I banishing the Geek forever to the Phantom Zone,just like in Superman II


Because, in the end--there can be only one.












Well....there it is...i think that it'll answer any lingering questions you may have. :D




until the next post!
