Postseason

Filed under: Sports!,WTF Did I Just Write? — Katrina @ 12:09 am

I just watched Game 7 of the World Series. Aww, no more baseball until next year!

Did you see the Postseason at all? No? Basically, it was the ten best MLB teams saying farewell to you and to this season until next year. Here’s a recap…

*teams line up side by side in front of a stairway*

All: “So long! Farewell! Auf wiedersehen, goodnight!”

Oakland A’s and Pittsburgh Pirates: “We hate to go and leave this pretty sight.” *both exit*

All: “So long! Farewell! Auf wiedersehen, goodbye!”

Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers: “We’re sweeped, we heave a sigh and say goodbye. Goodbyyyyyyyyyye!” *both exit*

All: “So long! Farewell! Au revoir, auf wiedersehen!”

Washington Nationals: “I’d like to stay and win my first World Series ring. Yes?”

San Francisco Giants: “No.” *Nationals and LA Dodgers exit*

Baltimore Orioles: “I’m glad to go. I cannot tell a lie.”

St. Louis Cardinals: “So you just flit and float and totally let the Royals sweep you?”

Baltimore Orioles: “I’m being sarcastic, you idiot!” *both sarcastically flit and float about and exit*

*Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants back away into the stairs*

Both: “The summer has gone for the year and so must we. So long. Farewell. Auf wiedersehen, goodbye…”

Kansas City Royals: “Goodbye…” *exits*

San Francisco Giants: “Goodbye!” *exits*

Scanty Costumes 2

Filed under: Estrogen,What the hell? — Katrina @ 10:30 pm

So there’s been a big uproar lately about the types of Halloween costumes available to those of us who happen to be female. Including those who are female and not yet in kindergarten. Not that there hasn’t been plenty of uproar on this topic already. But it’s slightly different now, in that it thankfully isn’t blaming little girls for choosing revealing costumes over a modest ghost or pumpkin in some conscious attempt to be more sexy and adult. In fact, it’s placing blame where it belongs: on the adults limiting the girls to the more revealing options.

One common example is how the police officer costume for boys looks like an actual police uniform, while the one for girls is a ridiculous short skirt with high boots. Same with the firefighter costume and countless others, that the one for boys actually looks like a miniature version of the real thing while the one for girls seems to make it over-the-top feminine to the point of ridiculous.

Thing is, I see an obvious solution to the above, and it’s a solution that interestingly enough is being forgotten due to adherence to gender binary. Just buy the “boys” costume for the girl. I mean, we’re talking prepubescent kids, so there aren’t nearly the body shape differences between the sexes as there will be later. The “boy” costume should fit her just fine. I mean, why is it a “boy” costume anyway (or the skirt one a “girl” costume for that matter)? Says who? The packaging says so and you can’t defy the packaging ever? The packaging will be out of the picture once the costume is being worn, so, tada!, you now just have an adorable little girl dressed like a cop all ready for trick-or-treating! Awww! 😀

Till We Find Our Key Change

Filed under: Idiot Box — Katrina @ 11:17 pm

I don’t always have a solid answer to the question of what my favorite movie of all time is, as there are a few that are up there. But I love The Lion King. I like animated Disney movies in general, but this one is just gold. For one, it’s got “Circle of Life”. True, obvious rip-off of Kimba is obvious, but The Lion King has “Circle of Life”. I also like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Toy Story, Frozen, and others. But The Lion King has “Circle of Life”.

The sequel, Simba’s Pride, is alright, and confirms what the (vastly superior, of course) original hints at… Simba’s kind of an asshole. And, no, I do not even acknowledge the existence of the horrific abomination that is The Lion King 1½. Fuck that noise.

Anyway, today is October 9, and I have a tradition that every year on October 9, I watch The Lion King. I’m not even going to try explaining the origin of this, as I wouldn’t even know where to begin, and as is the case with a lot of my origin stories, it’s not particularly interesting.

So here are some lovely and totally real quotes from this spectacular movie! 🙂 :cute:
