I got to shake hands with Aaron Ashmore (aka Jimmy Olsen from Smallville, as well as work from Jett Jackson and Are You Afraid of the Dark) back at Anime North in May.

He was working on a TV Miniseries called 'Fanboy Confessional' as the Narrator, and they were in between scenes when one of my panels ended. I walked out into the hallway, AND THERE HE WAS. I totally did a double-take. XD I couldn't resist a quick "Hi Aaron, I know you're busy, but I wanted to say I love your work." He thanked me and shook my hand and asked what my name was.

It was a whole 10 seconds of interaction, but it had me silently squeeing all day long.

And yes, he's at least 20% hotter in real life. Them Ashmore brothers, HNNNNNNG. <3

Kinda makes me wish I WASN'T cosplaying as Checkmate at the time, but oh well. It was a con, I took what I could get. XD;;


I've also spoken with a few anime/cartoon voice actors, such as Scott McNeil and Vic Mignoga in Fan Meet n' Greets at conventions, but that one was a little different...

STRAWBERRY. And not the crappy stuff, I want my strawberry ice cream with STRAWBERRIES in it, dammit. D

HARD QUESTION IS HARD, DAMMIT.

But first instinct is "Beauty and the Beast". I idolized Belle growing up, and the art, the songs...such a huge part of my life.

But coming up a strong second is "Mulan", for alot of good reasons, but none as important as the title character herself.

A Disney Princess who doesn't fit into society's mold, and doesn't really want to. She disobeys every tradition to protect her father, kicks villan ass, gets caught and abandoned, yet still comes back to do the right thing and kicks villan ass, AGAIN. And she does it all her way.

No damsel in distress, and no real romantic interaction until the last 5 minutes of the movie.

Fuck yes, Disney. Gimme some more of that.

Sadly, $1,000,000 isn't as impressive a number as it used to be. I'd still flip my shit though.

1) Pay off my parents' mortgage.
2) Set aside $30,000 to travel the world.
3) Buy a 2 bedroom condo (not a house; too much maintenance for me)
4) Split the rest into my retirement fund/savings account to accumulate interest.

Don't need a car (again, maintenance) thanks to a decent bus system, and having all that stuff set up would give me peace of mind and let me enjoy life once in awhile.

I know, I'm boring. XDDD

Ugh, such a choice! D: But if I HAD to choose, it would probably be "Glitter In The Air" by P!nk. God do I love this song...

If we're going for stuff still on TV, putting out new episodes, I'll go for Transformers Prime in animated TV, and Criminal Minds for 'grownup' TV. Young Justice might have taken the animated title, but being so wishywashy with the new episodes has ticked me off.

But if we're talking all-time, top-of-the-mountain favorite show ever? Gargoyles. Those two seasons were FLAWLESS BRILLIANCE.

What third season lalala can't hear you!

Queen songs are like potato chips, you can't just have one.

"The Show Must Go On" is probably my favorite of their mainstream hits. The opening, Freddie's determination in every lyric, the message to keep going forward, no matter what's coming up in the next act of your life...Looking back at some of the hits Queen's had, did no one REALLY see there might be something going on with Freddie? I mean, wow.

But I have to admit, I love the Brian Mays' song "I'm In Love With My Car" too. That's for purely fangirly reasons though, so yeah. *teeheehee*

Oh lord, my 'places to visit' list is a mile long. Can I get a European Train Tour for the two weeks? XD;;

I guess if I had to pick one place to go, it'd have to be Scotland. My ancestral history. The beauty of the highlands. The parties in the cities. The Abbeys and castles. Ocean views. Pristine hills.

Yep, definitely Scotland.

As a 'foodie', I find myself a little surprised that most of my meal is of homemade fare. Well, not really; my mom's cooking kicks ass. <3

Appetizer: Spinach salad with cranberries and goat's cheese
Main: My mom's cabbage rolls, with a little garlic bread on the side for the sauce
Dessert: My mom's strawberry & rhubarb pie
Drink: Strong iced tea.

Probably my first crush way back in elementary school. I never got up the guts to really talk to him, let alone ask him out.

We went to different high schools, but I saw him once during a drama competition a year after 8th Grade grad. Again, I didn't talk to him; figured he wouldn't even remember me.

He wound up committing suicide about a month later.

There's so much I'd want to say, but mostly I'd want to apologize for not saying 'hi' to him that day in the hallway...

Not so much a 'who' (as I'm fairly happy with who I am), as a 'what'.

I'd like to become a bird (possibly a finch), as they are my favorite animals. To sing, to fly and soar to amazing heights...

So I'm trying to write again.

As usual, it's more of my Piccolo/Sailor Jupiter obsession (seriously, WHY DO I LOVE THEM SO MUCH?); this time I'm trying to do the [livejournal.com profile] crossovers100 challenge (it's a prompt-comm dedicated to crossovers), as I FAILED hated the 1sentence challenge. I love my details too much to stick with one goddamn sentence. DX

I've been signed up for months, but haven't been able to get my ass down and WRITE. I started my first prompt last night; unfortunately writing doesn't come easy to me, so it takes awhile.

Really sucks that I've got all these IDEAS in my head (for both art and stories), but it's like it's...stuck up there, and won't come down. Like a cat stuck in a tree.

*iz annoyed*

CREAMED CORN.

Good God, absolutely everything about that stuff sickens me. The look, the smell, the taste....BLEEEEH.

For a 'traditional' Canadian 5-course menu, I guess I'd go with:

Wild mushroom soup
Leafy salad with fresh salmon
Poutine (C'mon, I HAVE TO!)
Deer meat tourtiere
OR moose sausages
Butter tarts, with coffee/tea from Tim Hortons
