I'm alive. I'm not ready to join the Von Trapp family singers, but I live. To celebrate, I have a humor meme thing.

The tagline for 1978's Superman movie was "You'll believe a man can fly." I was amusing myself last night by coming up with a few other "You'll believe.." catchphrases for other superhero movies.

So.

Superman II - "You'll believe.. a man can hurl giant cellophane S-symbols."
Superman III - "You'll believe.. Richard Pryor needed the paycheck."
Superman IV - "You'll believe.. you're owed a complete refund."
Superman Returns - "You'll believe.. a man can cry."
The Dark Knight - "You'll believe.. in Harvey Dent, unless you've actually ever read a Batman comic."
Ang Lee's Hulk - "You'll believe.. a man can actually sleep through an 'action' movie."

Try your own. Go nuts, kids. Make me laugh.

First day of classes here at the University, which means the cafeteria is back to its normal hours of operation and its full menu. This means I can start eating there again - which saves me time, money, gas, and calories. All in all, a win-win situation.

I had an extremely lazy weekend with a large dose of Katamari, supplemented by some DVDs. And next weekend is apparently Labor Day weekend, and it doesn't appear at this time that there will be a roleplaying session, so that one may be a lazy weekend too.

I was considering doing those Blogalyser memes that everyone seems to be running around with, but.. after checking them with a few of my roleplaying LJs, it doesn't seem like there's a lot of insight there. (http://www.awrc.info/content/lj.php and http://www.awrc.info/content/blogalyser2.php) Though my Blue Beetle apparently gets a weirdness score of 49. Not bad.

The champion, though, is probably my Ambush Bug journal :

Origins begins Wednesday. Tomorrow will have my last LJ update for almost two weeks, I expect, unless I'm feeling froggy sometime next week.

Here, enjoy my states-visited meme.

Had movie night last night, and we watched Shaolin Soccer, to much amusement. Reminds me, I need to buy Kung Fu Hustle sometime.

This amuses me far too much.

Ten oddities about [livejournal.com profile] candidgamera, or 'The Gam' as I like to think the ladies like to call me.

Based on a meme, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] count5umi, which has additional rules about tagging and disclaimers and rabid sheep, but I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel. So there will be none of that.


  • Other degree programs I seriously considered in college included Psychology and Law.

  • I do not eat ham or mayonnaise, except together.

  • I possess mild obsessive-compulsive tendencies - I enjoy listmaking, collecting, and long walks on the beach wherein I count my steps.

  • My first 'real' job was working as a Resident Assistant for the Governor's Honors Academy, at age 22. My first 'fake' job was superhero, at age 4.

  • I am not now, nor I have I ever been, a member of the Dance Party, USA. I am, however, a member of the Nitpicker's Guild - a group of Star Trek fans who submitted noticed errors from the series for publication in the Nitpicker's Guide to Star Trek series.

  • Had I three wishes, they would be for immortality, superhuman powers, and a player to be named later.

  • I had never seen a Gamera movie when I chose this online screen-name. I have since seen far too many Gamera movies.

  • I originated the screenname on either The Straight Dope messageboard or Ain't-It-Cool News; I can't recall which. I have since used it in a number of places, and aside from a guy on a couple of video game forums (Civ3, Total War, XBox), it appears to be uniquely mine.

  • I loathe Aquatic Elves. Y'know, from D&D? Can't stand'em. Something in my brain rebels at a clearly mammalian species having a subrace with gills.

  • I am psychologically incapable of allowing facts I think to be incorrect to go unchallenged.

By request of Madam [livejournal.com profile] nyx_hemsut. Copied and pasted from her journal.

Pretty much slanted towards lady-readers, in my case.. )

I am back from my holiday and will post a lovely summary of the events thereof on Monday, if I have time.

Choose 20 movies you like, and choose a quote from each. Then, see if everyone else can guess which movie each quote is from, and when they've guessed correctly, put the title and the guesser's name next to each quote.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In November I ate my brussel sprouts (1 points). Last Monday I ruled Canada as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points). In March I gave [livejournal.com profile] eemick2 a wet willie, then I took it back (-5 points). Last Wednesday I turned [livejournal.com profile] strawberryfuu in for spitting (3 points). In September I gave [livejournal.com profile] roair a kidney (1000 points).

Overall, I've been nice (299 points). For Christmas I deserve a toy train!

Sincerely,
candidgamera

I knew that Canadian Kidney Reclamation Program I started last Monday would come in handy.

12) I'm Batman.
13) But I've never danced the Batusi. Well, maybe once..
14) I adopted the named 'CandidGamera' because it was a good pun, before having seen a single Gamera film.
15) Heh hehhehheh. Heh heh. I'm an imp!
16) My impersonation of Vizzini from the Princess Bride must be heard to be believed.
17) I once killed a man, just to watch him die. Then I got distracted, and I missed it.
18) My favorite movie is Raiders of the Lost Ark, which I consider a sort of unauthorized biography of me.
19) I feel a Monty Python reference coming on..
20) My favorite color is blue. No, reeeeeed!

----------------------------------------------
21) Yes, I'm aware the original line is 'yellow', however, I said 'red' to continue the trend of injecting actual true facts into some of the above.
