The best month of the year has arrived. It’s DMX April!

I just bought a second 3DS XL so that I can trade pokemon… with myself.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go drink a gallon of Mountain Dew in one sitting and breathe heavily while thinking about exercising.

TIL my phone’s notification LED glows teal when I gain a follower on tumblr.

On a related note, check out http://optimusjiggs.tumblr.com/ - I met this guy in college, and he’s pretty awesome.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve tapped “To Redownload Screen.” Bravely Default had better be worth it.

Bill Nye The Science Guy vs Ken Ham The Science Sham: Two hours and forty minutes of reason going up against “you weren’t there” and “I know a book…”

You know, in retrospect, I’m really happy that I didn’t discover aggrotech in high school.

And Because I’m A Firm Believer In Actually Answering These Things When Presented With Them…

  1. For some reason, vanilla comes to mind, although my candles usually act exclusively as a source of light for when the power goes out.
  2. Isn’t the standard internet response to this Jennifer Lawrence?
  3. Robert Downey, Jr.
  4. But that would require me to get married…
  5. No, unless Steam games count.
  6. No.
  7. Eight or nine, I think. It’s been so long, I can’t remember.
  8. Just the Atlantic.
  9. I’ve left the US to visit England, Belgium, and The Netherlands.
  10. My cousin was, but she left when she got married.
  11. My go-to daughter name was always Rachel, but I could also see her being named Alice or Molly.
  12. Originally, I was going to go with Jake (for the same reason my daughter was going to be Rachel), but David or John would also work.
  13. I seem to recall getting a 30 on my War of the Roses test in AP European History in tenth grade, but I’m not certain.
  14. Arthur
  15. Sixteen years ago, I dressed up for Halloween as… hell if I know; it was sixteen years ago.
  16. Yes, no, and got-to-chapter-three-before-I-had-to-stop-because-it-was-so-bad, respectively.
  17. I don’t look very British, so I think I’ll keep my American accent.
  18. Yes. She even got a Masters in English.
  19. My dad’s parents are still married. My mother’s parents got hit with that pesky “Until death do us part” clause.
  20. Nope.
  21. Of course.
  22. Sesame Place.
  23. I could stand to be fluent in either Dutch or Cantonese for work.
  24. This is one of those words where I type it out and then spend the next twenty minutes changing the vowel back and worth because I can’t decide which looks better. Græy looks completely wrong even though it best represents my feelings towards the word. It really depends on the style guide I’m using.
  25. No, and neither is my grandfather.
  26. A few twins, but no triplets.
  27. I’ve never seen either, but I imagine I’d like Titanic better.
  28. Yes.
  29. I haven’t been enough places to say for certain. There are a few local places that are pretty good though.
  30. Yes, and comparing my opinion of it to the near-unanimous opinion of people that I’ve seen on the internet, I somehow managed to go to the ONE good Olive Garden on the planet.
  31. No, and I have no reason to.
  32. Danielle (which, coincidentally, is my sister’s name).
  33. The guys at work have recently taken to calling me either Dave Dazzi or Tony Slash David.
  34. I’ve never thought about this before. After staring at the screen for what felt like half an hour, I’ve come to the decision that I don’t know enough people to make this call.
  35. I moved to a rural area for work back in 2012. I really miss cities. Or at least places with a mall and more than one movie theater.
  36. Yes.
  37. Not unless you count the sun for the half of the month that I’m nocturnal.
  38. No.
  39. No.
  40. Just the same boring allergies that most people have (pollen, poison ivy, etc.)
  41. Just the time I was born, and that’s just because I was being born, not because there was anything wrong.
  42. Of course.
  43. My last pair of jeans was from Amazon. Like I said earlier, rural area. Not much here.
  44. My boss is British, so I got a “Brilliant; good work!”
  45. Usually. Especially if they’re exceptionally weird or awesome.
  46. Yorkshire Tea. If you’ve never had it, buy some right now and drink it. Make sure it’s the red label. If you don’t like Yorkshire Tea, we can’t be friends.
  47. Three.
  48. That really depends on who I marry, now doesn’t it?
  49. I went into The Santa Clause knowing Santa wasn’t real, and that came out when I was five, which leads to the horrifying conclusion that I found out that Santa isn’t real when I was four or younger.
  50. My now-mostly-defunct previous Tumblr came about when I felt the need to bitch about some homework assignment I had. This one came about when I felt the need to separate my angry posts from my non-angry posts. (Hence “Things That Are Not Rants.”)
