Don't mind my infobabble

Ask me anything   My teaching tumblr   

Ultimate knowledge, ultimate geekery, ultimate infobabble. This is kind of an "everything blog." I post inspiring art, scientific advances, and writing advice. And I also post silly stuff from my fandoms, which include Avengers, Sherlock, Merlin, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, Star Trek, and so many more.

I just saw someone wearing a T-shirt that had big, bold letters reading KILLED. It turns out, his backpack strap was covering up the S in SKILLED.

I can’t decide if that’s poor T-shirt design or amazing T-shirt design.

Actually wait fave story from last night: at one student’s thesis defense, one of my professors asked him a question, and the guy just walked over to loom over his desk, looked him straight in the eyes, and said, “I’m warning you, I don’t take kindly to questions.”

I love thesis defense stories! In that kind of high-stress environment, people say the best things.

Yesss. It was extra-funny because the guy defending was typically super-quiet and level-headed.

Even better! I don’t think I said anything particularly crazy during my defense, but I had gone from Usually Quiet to Closed-Mouth Frenetic, so who knows?

Actually, the best line from my defense was when my thesis advisor asked why there were no Elves in my project. I don’t remember what I said, but he conceded that anything was probably better than “Orlando Bloom and his failed heroic mustache.” I’m…not sure how he got Legolas and Will Turner mixed up, but it was so funny and so sincere that I’ve never forgotten it.

Ah, distinctly I remember…

The conversation started with Legolas and went to the strange but true realm where Orlando Bloom is a weak, romantic hero, not the kind you want to include in great stories. Will Turner was simply the other example of this, complete with his failed heroic mustache.

I’m collecting gifs so I can appropriately blog about Nanowrimo next month. Some of the gifs are anticipating the excitement or angst that will be involved in my writing. Others are anticipating the triumphs and tragedies of my characters. 

Here’s a sneak peek:

That’s me. I’m Laura Dern. I’m Ellie Sattler. Bring it on.
