A Merry Heart Davenport

nnmpsn:

New Wednesday dress, finished just one day late!  (that’s OK, today is Comics Day for me anyway since I didn’t make it to the shop).  Proof of concept for the pattern (Butterick 6055) in advance of the Captain Marvel version I’m making for Dragon*Con.  Which I hope to make great progress on tonight (after getting my comics).  Watch out for me at the Carol Corps meetup as “1950 day dress Captain Marvel.” 

(also note how I’ve turned myself into a walking pun.)

LOOK AT YOU!!! This is so cool!  I love it. 

At first glance, i thought someone was cosplaying Miss Frizzle.  And I was excited.  Then i started thinking about the magic school bus taking us into a comic book and my brain exploded.

  • mom:

    you realize normal people don't have such strong feelings about the oxford comma

  • me:

    THE OXFORD COMMA IS IMPORTANT

  • mom:

    you realize this makes you a nerd

  • me:

  • mom:

  • me:

    i had a party with the strippers, george bush and barack obama

  • me:

    i had a party with the strippers, george bush, and barack obama

  • me:

    without the comma, you are implying that george bush and barack obama are strippers

  • mom:

  • me:

  • mom:

    this isn't normal

so here’s a fun story about this movie. guess who loves this movie? me! i do! i love this movie. i love this movie so much that when i was in the 7th grade and i saw “first wives club 2” on pay per view i was like: HELL YEAH!! FIRST WIVES CLUB TWO!! NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WAS A SEQUEL!!!

here’s the synopsis for first wives club 2:

disgruntled first wives take their ex-husbands’ new lovers under their wing.

sounds great, right? awesome viewing material for a precocious 11-year-old.

so i buy this movie, and like, three minutes into it i’m starting to feel suspicious?? like it’s really low quality and my girls are nowhere in sight?? how come none of the first wives are the same?? how come they’re alone in a bedroom with mood lighting?? why is she taking off her shirt?? why are they both taking off their shirts?? WHY ARE THEY—

here’s what i did not know about first wives club 2:

  • it is a lesbian porno of no relation to the beloved 1996 classic.

so of course i, horrified that i’ve accidentally bought porn on my family’s account (and in that state of panic that kids work themselves into whenever anything regarding sex is mentioned), quickly shut off the TV and go upstairs and watch an episode of veggie tales to like, cleanse my soul and apologize to jesus, and that’s that.

EXCEPT, OF COURSE:

  • you have to pay for pay per view.

so the end of the month comes and i have completely put this incident out of my mind, haha, i accidentally bought porn, how funny, TELL NO ONE. right? and i’m sitting at a nice dinner with my mother, my stepfather, and my very religious aunt deb, and we’re just talking about farm things, whatever, when suddenly my mother puts her fork down and says, “okay, there’s something we need to discuss. as a family.”

  • AS A FAMILY.

and i’m like, running through a list of people i know who could conceivably be dead, and fantasizing about my mother announcing that she’s going to buy me My Own Computer Just Because U Earned It Kiddo, and she pulls out a piece of paper that says DIRECTV across the top. and i’m like: OH NO.

"i received the tv bill today," my mother said, and i was like, shoveling potatoes into my mouth as fast as i could because i knew that when i went to PORN PRISON they weren’t going to feed me this kind of quality starch. "does anybody want to tell me who purchased the pornography?"

as a reminder, a quick table survey:

  • my mother, surprised and disappointed by the porn bill (innocent)
  • my stepfather, a grumbly old cowboy who just wants to sing along to kenny chesney and watch the hunt for red october (innocent)
  • my aunt deb, a super religious catholic whose best friend is a nun named Sister Placid (innocent)
  • me, the 11-year-old with a mouthful of potatoes who definitely purchased the lesbian pornography

silence.

my mother said, “i’m not going to ask again.”

silence.

my aunt looked at my stepdad. my stepdad looked at my aunt. NOBODY LOOKED AT ME, THE 11-YEAR-OLD WITH A MOUTHFUL OF POTATOES WHO DEFINITELY PURCHASED THE LESBIAN PORNOGRAPHY.

my mother shook her head and put the bill down. “this was incredibly inappropriate,” she said. “skip, deb, whoever. buy that shit on your own time. i’m not paying for it. what if molly had seen it?”

  • WHAT IF MOLLY HAD SEEN IT?

"don’t expose my kid to that crap."

  • DON’T
  • EXPOSE
  • MY KID
  • TO THAT CRAP

"if you want to watch porn, fine, but do it in private and don’t expect me to pay for it. i can’t believe one of you did that in the living room."

  • I CAN’T BELIEVE ONE OF YOU DID THAT
  • IN THE LIVING ROOM

but molly, why didn’t you own up to it and explain that it was an accident?

  • are you fucking kidding
  • i did not want to go to porn prison

the fun conclusion to this story is that i never owned up to it, which means that there are 3 people in the world who have not solved the mystery of the lesbian porn. a quick survey:

  • my mother, who lives every day wondering whose porn she paid for
  • my stepfather, who probably wishes he knew less about his wife’s sister’s porn preferences
  • my aunt, who probably wishes she knew less about her sister’s husband’s porn preferences

but molly, why don’t you own up to it now, with the safety of time and distance and the knowledge that porn prison isn’t real?

  • are you fucking kidding
  • this is the best thing i’ve ever done

what an amazing story

Wow.

I would be late for everything with a shower like this.

I COULD FINALLY SLEEP… IN THE SHOWER

Future home goals.

I COULD EAT PIZZA IN THE SHOWER

Sex, sleep and pizza; in the shower. People of Tumblr got life goals on lock down.

// NMTD fan game #3//

Favorite Doctor: Nine.  Duh.

Favorite companion: Donna.  Again, duh.

If you had the chance to be the Doctor’s companion, would you go and who would you bring with you? You bet your sweet ass I would.  Maybe I’d bring my broski?  We travel well.

 —————-

Favorite Superhero: Hawkeye?  Not the movie one, but the clumsy nerd from the comics.  Aw, pants.

Marvel or DC: Is this a serious question?  Marvel.

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?  Instantaneous travel, maybe.

 —————-

Favorite Game of Thrones Character: Ok, here’s the thing.  I bought the first book a few years ago (it’s in good, plentiful company on my “shelf of shame”), but I haven’t gotten into it yet, and I can’t watch the fraking show until I read the fraking book.  It’s ok, go on and judge me. 

Who do you want on the Iron Throne?

What do you think of Sansa Stark?

  —————-

Do you like the Star Wars prequels? No.  Hells no.

Which of the six movies is your favorite? Empire Strikes Back

Are you looking forward to the sequels? I’m tentatively optimistic.

  —————-

Hogwarts House: Slytherin

Patronus: Some kind of cat

What magical object from the world of Harry Potter would you most like to have? Ooooh!  Hermione’s clutch.  I would carry all of the things all of the time!

What’s your favorite part of the Harry Potter movies that was not in the original books?  Draco’s suits. 

What’s your favorite part of the Harry Potter books that was left out of the movies? Rita Skeeter.  Peeves.  Hermione’s teeth.  The swamp the twins conjure.
  —————-

What are your favorite classic novels? Jane Eyre, The Secret Garden, does A Wrinkle In Time count?  Not old enough??

What are your favorite modern novels? The Princess Bride, The Hero and The Crown, The Raw Shark Texts, Speaker For the Dead

Do you prefer classic novels or modern novels? Both!  All the books.  

If your favorite obscure novel (old or new) were to become a big fandom, what would you want most to see in that fandom? Textual sharks.  Building armor from junk mail.  Yes, please.  C’mon, guys.  Please read The Raw Shark Texts.  For me.  

Favorite character from any fandom/your favorite fandoms (excluding NMTD b/c we did that already): I might be pretty deeply in love with Booth from Bones.  If he weren’t fictional…

What show do you think has the best theme song? Gilmore Girls.  

If I do a fandom-themed game like this in the future, what fandoms would you like to see included?  Good, solid question.  

My companion seemed to be having little trouble, in spit of being unable to use his right hand. I could feel his thighs behind mine, shifting and pressing occasionally to guide the horse. I clutched the edge of the short saddle in order to stay seated; I had been on horses before, but was by no means the horseman this Jamie was.
