I really love Sherlock and I also grew up on Star Trek so “Into Darkness” appealed to me in ways I shan’t describe.

I took my boyfriend to see “Into Darkness” only recently so I could scream in a theater without disturbing the innocents and when Benedict Cumberbatch walked onscreen the first time I leaned over and whispered Bandersnatch Cummerbund in the boyfriend’s ear.

He was confused and he’s cute when he’s confused so the next time Benedict Cumberbatch walked onscreen I leaned over and whispered Benediction Chumbawumba and wouldn’t even look at my boyfriend when he kept poking me and asking what in blazes I was on about.

The next time Benedict Cumberbatch walked onscreen I leaned over to my boyfriend and looked him dead in the eye and said Bandicoot Snortlesnatch and then without changing my expression I went on a long-winded explanation about how “Into Darkness” played into OST and “Wrath of Khan” and suchly.

This continued through most of the film because whenever Benedict Cumberbatch walked onscreen I’d say something odd because it was really obvious that the boyfriend had no idea that Khan was being played by someone so majestically named Benedict Cumberbatch so clearly my jokes were lost on him.

We got through the movie although by Balderdash Humperdink the boyfriend dumped popcorn all over me because he has issues (I mean c’mon) but when we were driving home I didn’t speak at all like I just totally shut up and he was really creeped out so when we got home I went to the computer and opened up Netflix and started playing “A Study in Pink” without a word.

The boyfriend is all what the heck is this on my TV right now and I just patted the couch next to me and gave him a pitying look because even then I knew he had succumbed and then ten minutes later he was laughing his ass of and really getting into it and the succumbing was complete (Succumbedict Completerbatch) but then he got this weird look on his face and leaned forward and stared at Sherlock really hard and—

… is that Kahn? But he looks so boyish why does he look so boyish how much muscle did he put on to play Khan because he’s really skinny now and what’s with those skinny spider legs and oh god that crew cut for Khan really did well for his cheekbones and I’m confused because now he’s got those forehead curl things for schoolboys.

I leaned over and whispered Breckenridge Cabbagepatch and boyfriend had to leave the room because the cycle had started all over again and he didn’t like that and now we’re marathoning the series because he’s now a Cumberbitch just like me and I’m really mad at the boyfriend because he’s not going to have to wait as long as me for the next series so boo. 

When I look at this opossim I see the priceless essence of the moment you enthusiastically delete someone from your friend list for being a bigoted asshat.

My first publication!

 My first essay, “Elvis Presley Has Been Avenged,” has appeared in print! My story appears alongside work by former US poet laureate Billy Collins; he actually wrote me a postcard complimenting my story. :D Grab a copy if you can! ((FYI, I publish under the name “Sam Butler” because reasons.))

I’ve noticed people reblogging this lately; I assume someone grabbed it off my DA page. Anyway, this is a list of things I ALWAYS get asked when people hear I’m a writer. Drives me nuts.

Cookies for Breakfast: So a Girl Walks into a Comedy Club....

breakfastcookie:

This is something that happened to a friend of mine in her own words.

So, on Friday night my friend and I were at her house and wanted to get out and do something for the evening. We brainstormed ideas and she brought up the idea of seeing a show at the Laugh Factory. I’d never been, I thought…

My tattoo! Drawn and inked by Dale the Nail at 713 Tattoos in Houston, Texas. Located on my lower-to-mid back
I came up with this tattoo design when I was 16; when I wanted the same design when I was 20, I knew I had to take the plunge.
There’s quite a bit of story behind this tattoo. Typewriters are very special to me; they symbolize passion, purpose, and liberation. When I was doubting my future as a writer the most, my grandmother revealed a box of stories that had been typed up on an old typewriter. I had dictated those stories to her as a toddler, when I had only barely learned to talk but was already creating. She had known for years that I was made to be a creator; I had but to find that drive within myself.
I own that oldd typewriter today. I received my first publication acceptance last month.
