I made... a Sarah Connor Chronicles Christmas tree. Why? Well, I had this metal tree, see. Metal. It's actually a very old tree (40+ years old, I think). It belonged to my grandmother and my mom gave it to me when I first moved away from home. I used it for a few years because it's unique and because it held such fond memories for me, but I've had it boxed up on a shelf in my basement for years now.

After setting up my normal Christmas tree this year, that little old aluminum tree popped into my head for some reason. And since I'm a big freaking dork for TSCC, I naturally put "metal tree" and "Sarah Connor" together (it was a eureka moment in the nerdiest possible way). So I set about making little TSCC-themed ornaments from poster board, construction paper, aluminum foil and various odds and ends around my house.

Merry Christmas TSCC fans!



What you'll find on the tree:

- HK/drone
- savethescc stickers
- bullets & shotgun shells
- a turtle (Sarah's dreams)
- one of Savannah's duckings (Chicky, Fluffy or Feathers, take your pick!)
- shotgun
- Glock
- endo head (based on my pumpkin carving pattern)
- the Turk
- Wizard of Oz book
- nuclear missile (Ok, so it's just a generic GI Joe missile, but you can pretend it's nuclear, right?)
- 2 multi-sided dice (I didn't have a 20-sided die, sadly)
- Cameron's chip (it's one of the flash drives)
- Presidio Alto emblem
- block of C4 w/timer
- drum of radioactive waste from Serrano Point
- queen chess piece
- Andy Goode's Kramnik vs Deep Fritz poster
- the Polaroid of Sarah
- pancakes
- notebook paper w/3 dots
- shard of aluminum from a soda can
- a terminator endoskeleton

I think that's everything.

Why do I always feel an obligation to seed after downloading? People tell me I'm a sucker. They tell me I should bail the second I get my file and leave the seeding to people with T1/T3 connections. But I feel guilty doing that. Like right now, I'm seeding to just four people and I've got my upload speed maxed out. If I quit, their download time will go up and in my head I'll see their happy faces turn to sad faces.

Or maybe they're actually all asleep like I should be.

Okay, who's going? Anyone?

I've tried in vain for weeks (maybe months?) to convince [livejournal.com profile] life_on_queen to go. She refuses. Something about Detroit and some hussies... and a pact. O_o Recently, I spent some time trying to tempt [livejournal.com profile] schmacky0 and [livejournal.com profile] aelysian with Dragon*Con. It's not exactly like I had to push. They got caught up in the idea very quickly... No. Yes. No. Maybe. We should totally go. How much is airfare? Could we split a hotel? Hee. I think they've both settled back to "no" though.

If any of you are going and want to meet up, let me know. If you're not going, you're missing out on a totally nerdtastic time. You may recall that last year's Dragon*Con was my first ever con experience. And that the man and I had so much fun in the day and a half we were there that on our way home, we decided we were going again this year. We stuck to that plan. This year, however, I'll be there for the whole thing and I'll be right in the thick of it at the Hilton.

In the meantime, I'm hoping this icky throat feeling isn't the start of something because being sick at Dragon*Con would suck.

Yes, I know I still haven't posted about Comic Con.

A: Me!

Q: Who's going to Comic-Con?

The 4-day passes are just about sold out, so I stopped my can I handle a 6-hour flight? wavering and took the plunge. The man and I bought our tickets tonight and booked a hotel (within walking distance of the convention center - yay). Now I just need to convince myself that flying is a fun thing, not a scary thing.

So who else is going?

Happiness is...
An hour long discussion with the man about time travel.

I've always gone with the multiple timelines theory, but [livejournal.com profile] life_on_queen argues there's a single timeline in the TSCC verse. So after a brief "single timeline!" / "multiple timelines!" exchange, I took the discussion to real life and mentioned it to the man. He wasn't interested in talking about it. "Single timeline," he said. "Let's watch TV."

Augh.

I grabbed pen and paper, started drawing diagrams and talking about Derek and Jesse. Next thing you know, the man is all into it, grabbing my pen and paper and drawing his own diagrams. Much debate and pages of back and forth scribbles later (with a very annoying pen that kept refusing to write), he declared there must be multiple timelines (and also "let's watch TV").

Here is a coherent version (I think) of what we came up with:



UPDATE: There's, um, more. Headaches ahoy! )
