Inside The Theme October IGGPPC

1)Your favorite dark fairy tale, and why?

Rapunzel, I loved the “PG” version as a kid, I just found it really relatable her being locked away from the world, I was stuck on a farm during the summers as a kid. And then when I was in high school I read Zel by Donna Jo Napoli and thought it was sooo good.

2) If you were a member of the Sidhe (or part of the fairy folklore world) what kind of fae would you be?

In most circumstances I am a Unicorn. Like when in doubt be a Unicorn. However I guess I would go with an Asrai, because they melt into a pool of water when captured or exposed to light, in my case I would melt into a pool of water when exposed to other people, or made to go outdoors. (I think I might also be part cat,  just saying…)

3) As a child, what was the spookiest part of October for you?

Nothing. Nothing scared me about the dark, or of monsters, I loved (and still love) all of October and Halloween. It’s a magical month, because we choose to make it so.

4) You are planning a feast for fairies, what do you serve?

LOL, ok well because I’m me it would turn out to be nothing short of a replication of the Mad Hatters Tea Party from Alice In Wonderland.

5) What artist best captures your image of what a dark fairy tale looks like?

Umm well, I don’t know the artist that did this, but I think its an amazing take on Little Red Ridding Hood, found it a while ago.

IGGPPC Halloween Party

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” – Wait that’s not right….. “This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!” Ah much better! 😀

So this is my first IGGPPC Halloween Party and from what I understand it’s their second one(?). There are so many activities going on! I guess the bit I’m most excited about is the 24 hour Iggle Movie Watch Along.

I’ll be hosting from 1 AM GMT (6 PM Pacific) through the 4 AM GMT Hour (8 PM Pacific). I’ll be watching the Charlie Brown Halloween Special, Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, and Courage the Cowardly Dog’s TV Episode The Demon in The Mattress, it’s bound to be a hauntingly good time!

If you want to participate, everyone is welcome, check out all the happenings on IGGPPCs official post here , and remember to follow @iggleflicks on twitter for the movies, or use #iggleswatch .Now is as good as time as any to become an Iggle if your not already, the community is to die for. (Yes all the puns for the next couple of days!)

It’s a new Dawn, It’s a new Day, It’s a New Life for me….

and I’m feeling good!

Happy Wednesday!

Wednesdays are the worst day of the week to me. Mostly cause I want the weekend to come sooner and the stupid landscape people start at 7 am at my apartment, when I’m like “I could have a half hour more of sleep!”. But that must be why coffee is a thing.

Today is especially exciting not just because this is my first post on my new blog but also because I am hosting a tweet along over on Iggle Flicks at 6 pm  PST we will be watching BACK TO THE FUTURE PART 2. Last month we watched the first one and it was really good. I have never seen any of the back to the future movies (I know, I know, what have I been doing with my life?) but so far I am enjoying them.

I was made an Activities Coordinator with Iggle Flicks in the middle of September, and I hosted my first watch along on October 18, for Edward Sissorhands, it was super fun. I am super thankful for the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. Especially when I consider my self a rather new Iggle. I joined IGGPPC in late July, 2015. So I have been around for like 2 and a half months. But this community is full of so many other people who are like me and think like me and like the same things as me. Which is something I have really struggled with in “real life”. I love the internet very much. I love that I can connect and share with people who are so similar to me. And I am so thankful for IGGPPC.

Details of IGGPPC

For those who don’t know what IGGPPC is it stands for International Geek Girl Pen Pal Club. However you don’t have to be a “geek” nor girl to be part of the community. If your into fitness great! There’s a place for you, if your into photography, great! There’s a place for you. If your into Dr. Who fantastic there is a place for you! Really no matter what your interest is here you will find fast friends.

For me I love video games, movies, books, and writing. But I have other interest too such as cooking, crafts, blogging, fitness, and board games. There are literally people who enjoy and share those interests with me so no matter what I’m looking for (interest wise) there is at least one other person I can start a conversation with. And it’s a positive environment! No trolls, it’s amazing. Coming from a background of video games, especially MMOs, the internet is typically a pretty shitty place, full of trolls and rude people, and to be honest my spirit can’t take it. I would much rather be polite, nice, and act like an adult rather than a child especially when trying to work with a group through a raid or something. So it’s a breath of fresh air to find IGGPPC.

Hey This Blog Is New! What Are You Doing?

I’m so excited to be starting a new blog. I have been blogging over on Tumblr; one for life stuff, and one focused on video games, but this will be a place where those two can live in harmony, which is a long time coming!
