      I know this is sort of last minute, but next weekend will be MegaCon Fan Days in Orlando Fl. This is going to be a considerably smaller convention to the actual MegaCon in the spring. However I thought that this would be a great chance to have a meet-up when the convention hall is swarming with people.

      Hello Everyone, with the RT Community Day coming up on the 15th I thought it might be nice to try and see if anyone in the area was planning anything fun for the day. Myself I am planning on spending the afternoon at Downtown Disney playing Snag a Streetpass, so if you live in the Orlando/Central Florida Area I will most certainly wearing a RT shirt so if you spot me come up and say Hi.

    • Go Go Angry Rant Time...

      Hello and welcome to the rant corner today we have a story that I am sure everyone is familiar with, the old aren't you to old to be playing video games. Now to paint the picture for you I work in a smallish hotel and I was enjoying my yummy lunch outside cause its nice out for once and playing some Pokemon X (I am just about to go and murder the Fairy gym leader in case you were wondering). And out of the corner of my eye I see one of the front desk agents see me eating and playing with my 3DS and sorta gesturing to me laughing asking oh aren't you to old to be playing game, why don't you just grow up. Now I am very proud to be a nerd, geek, dork, and whatever other name people have called me over the years but when she started laughing angry high school Liz jumped out and was like oh nooooooooo not today lady. However work Liz took back control and politely reminded the woman that while yes I may appear to be too old to you in all reality a lot of my friends including my boyfriend play games, and I find them enjoyable and a simple way to relax and decompress after a long day of dealing with crap from people like you (okay I had to get a little nasty). After leaving her in shock which was awesome I politely excused myself and went back to level my Pokemon. Now a part of me was waiting for her to come back with some stupid comment about violence and video games, but I guess the rage fuming from my eyes must has told her that I would have eaten her soul had she opened her mouth again. Anyway long story short bitch got told... LOL

      So I work at a hotel in Orlando which has both it's bonuses as well as it more lack lusher qualities, I get a ton of international street passes, but I also have to drive outside of town to find a mall that isn't being ransacked by previously mentioned travelers. But sometimes I get invited to some crazy events , this weekend I got to do something amazing that will probably live with me forever, I finally got to meet Atlantis.
      I should probably give a little back-story since for most seeing an orbiter would be cool it probably isn't as moving as it was for me. I have always considered myself a space geek, since I was old enough to understand how a telescope worked I was outside at night attempting to see planets and stars. And once I realized that people where still going up into space I was hooked, I follow the shuttles and learned all I could about the missions and experiments that were done while in orbit.

      So fast forward 16 years later my boyfriend and I are driving across NASA parkway and I start to see the Vehicle Assembly Building and then the lightning rods for Launch Pad 39A & 39B start to show over the tops of trees and I feel like that 12 year old girl again but it doesn't truly hit me until we are waiting to see Atlantis. The whole exhibit was built from the ground up to showcase this feat of engineering genius that went into space 33 times, one was which was to repair the dying Hubble Telescope after the world cried out and started campaigning for it rescue and repair (If you don't know about it look up STS-125). I don't want to ruin the experience for anyone who may read this and check it out but I will tell you that walking out onto the walkway where Atlantis is displayed like she is flouting in space with payload bay door open it was breathe taking. For someone who spent so much of her life reading about shuttles but never having the chance to be this close the first time seeing it brought tears to my eyes, after which I started to run around like a little kid taking as many pictures as I could.

      Now for a little soap box time, if you feel like NASA is horribly underfunded and you would like to see further generations reach for the stars and hopefully be able to explore world beyond ours then email your congress person and tell them you support increasing funding for this greatly needed but truly neglected program. I have included links to two of my favorite videos by Neil deGrasse Tyson who if you don't know him he is an amazing astrophysicist who may or may not be responsible for the reclassification of Pluto. But I hope if nothing else you watch those videos and they show you how quickly we have stopped dreaming. Also Neil deGrasse Tyson will be hosting the Fox reboot of The Cosmos which if you haven't seen the trailer it's linked too.

  • About Me

    Salutations and congrats on stumbling upon my profile, as reward for your discovery I will share with you some semi-interesting things about me.

    Welp I am 29 year old lady who is a casual PC gamer, hard core Whovian, and more importantly a serious nerd. I still play with Legos and action figures but when I am not playing with toys or video games I get to work at a hotel in Orlando (which is super fun) and play at a toy store on the weekends.

        Yah I started with soul silver on the recommendation of my friends who all play pokemon. And I have fallen in love with the game and just cant wait for x/y.
        I still haven't picked a starter since they all look interesting.

        Awe cool. Glaceon is my favorite Eeveelution. I remember getting the Red version when it first came out, got out of it the end of gen 3, but got back into in college. Pokemon still has a special place in my heart, and I really hope they never stop improving.

        I also should note that while I have played Pokemon before I only really got into about 1 or so ago so I am still a super noob at it. But I like collecting them and giving them silly names.

        Well I really like them all, but I just like the way Glaceon looks.
