So I keep getting emails meant for someone who doesn't know how to write out their own email address. I'm guessing that there's a dot in Trixie's address, but apparently not in this mystery person's (her name is Brenda); and her Facebook signup and her emailed application to Domino's got bounced to my inbox. Honestly, if you can't remember how to parse your own email address, I don't want you delivering my pizzas. Also, Domino's and Facebook: a duet of horrors if ever there was one.
Getting this sorted out meant that I spent an afternoon going through old Nexus emails, trying to recall exactly what I said and to whom and why; and coming to the conclusion that Trixie, as she was then, was kind of shrill and annoying, with the constant pop culture references and the hipster-doofus nerdspeak, etc; and if that made her insufferable to anybody, I apologize in retrospect (which is something I do often). A lot of the stuff she said and did really makes me cringe now.
For those of you who are interested, she's still around--we've never quite gotten around to finishing Metatokyo yet, but Trixie is currently taking on a second-banana role in the YA novel I'm trying to write. I made her a dude in order to make him a better fit as the main character's best friend, much to his chagrin. But for the most part, he's the same Trixie, just different plumbing and hairstyle. Same name, too, and pretty amazingly gay. I'm hoping to piss off some parents in the Bible belt. It's a goal.
I'm thinking about coming back, but I'm not really sure. So, what's happened since we've been gone? Anybody still reading this? Anybody care?

IM AT UR BARBECUEZ
STEELIN UR KEBABZ
I was BORED. And I thought "DUDE! TRAMAMPOLINE! BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY XD" and the rest is history.
I had a dream.
I had an awesome dream.
There were people in the park, playing games in the dSTFU LIONEL RICHIE I H8 U DX
Anyway. It was me, Hips, Jun and Eiko, and we were all bounty hunters in the Wild West; only it was more like a steampunk, cowboys an' robots kinda thing. We all had these kickass steam-powered cyborg horses and our own signature old-timey/high-tech weapons and fucking AMAZING outfits. And the theme song to the whole thing was Polysics' cover of "MY SHARONA."
We should totally do that sometime. And by "do that" I mean "travel back in time and become steampunk bounty huntressessesses." Why the fuck not? You got anything better to do?
Why did I wait this long to get a copy of "The Lodger?
" It's GOOD. Almost as good as "Heroes
." Which I am finally also getting on CD.
FORGIVE ME O THIN WHITE DUKE, I DIDST NOT KNOW HOW MUCH ASS-ROCKING THEE HAD DONEST ON THIS ALBUM. ETH.
Oh, and I'd be a total bitch if I didn't mention this: Congratulations to Eiko and Isis! You two crazy chicks deserve a very happy life together, and I have no reason to believe you'll give each other anything but. MAZEL TOV!
((Yeah, I did eventually get Guitar Hero II. And it occurred to me last night that if Trixie were a boy, Iggy Pop's "Search And Destroy" would be his theme song. I probably would have figured this out sooner had I ever heard the song before--I know, I know. My music edumacation has pretty humongous holes in it. I'd make a terrible Phonomancer
Not that I'm willingly inviting LOL onto my muse's magenta-tinted head. As a matter of fact, the recent waves of LOL have pretty much turned me off to the Nexus more or less. I'm not commenting or asking questions much these days because I don't have the patience or will go to through anything more convoluted than dropping a snark payload and disappearing into the night--a steath bitch-bomber, zooming too fast for radar. Hell, I'm letting an in-LJ RP on one of my other characters sit and rot because I can't bring myself to continue it yet; even after I promised the other player I wouldn't do that. I don't know why! It's like an overdue library book--I don't want to bring it back and suffer the librarian's wrath, and yet every day I keep it out will incur an increasing amount of said wrath. It's the stupidest Catch-22 ever
So, for the moment, I'm declaring all my characters LOL- and wangst-free because I don't have the energy to go along with the rest of the Nexus--recent tragedies concerning close friends aside; of course. I guess this doesn't change much, Trixie's always out of the loop when something happens and can only chime in to react after the fact.. My excuse is that she's busy in Metatokyo. Closer to the truth would be "I don't read my character's friendslist very often, and most of what goes on appears to happen either in IRC or in comms that I don't read anyway."
In conclusion: I suck, and all indications are clear that I will continue sucking for the estimable future. GO BANANA!))
Gentlemen, the writer for the infamous kitpooka known only as "Trixie" has discovered Guitar Hero.
This could potentially be very bad for productivity and may spell the end of whatever it is Trixie does. We think she's either some sort of spy for a nation that doesn't exist and never has, an escaped mental patient, or a really shitty mime that can turn into a [fingerquotes] cute and cuddly woodland creature.
Our expert on lost productivity, Doctor David Hasselhoff:WELL AS YOU CAN SEE IN THIS VIDEO FOOTAGE, GUITAR HERO HAS MORE OR LESS TAKEN OVER THE WRITER'S LIFE, AND HAS ENGAGED THE MUSE COMPLETELY COMPLETELY. WITNESS THIS RARE EXCHANGE BETWEEN TWO COGNIZANT BEINGS COEXISTING WITHIN THE SAME CONSCIOUSNESS:
[writer] my arms are le tired
Must! Get! perfect rating on "Spanish Castle Magic!" FINGERS FUSING INTO LOBSTER-BOY-LIKE FLIPPERS! RAAAAAAAHHHHRRR I AM A GOLDEN GOD
If Guitar Hero continues to take up such a prominent position in the life of the writer, we can expect further drop-offs in productivity to occur until the writer and the muse engage in psychological fusion, the likes of which would cause their personalities to meld into a single entity; thus creating a person whose only goal in life is to continue playing the game incessantly, ignoring all biological needs until their body gives out completely.
Tell me why we care, again. I don't see this as a bad thing.
It might not be. But God help us all if they ever locate a copy of Guitar Hero II.
May you all get coal in your stocking, because gas is fuckin' expensive!
Oh, and if you wanna hear my favorite xmas story, clicken zie here
Just tossing this out there as an idea, seein' what you think:
I'm not saying the Ghostbusters NEED a transforming, ectoplasm-sucking robot, but you can't tell me that they probably don't want
one. I know Ray definately does.
