Happy new year! Most people try to use the new post of the year to reflect or summarize or plan for the future. I'm going to show you pictures of my incomplete crocheted my little pony. I wanted to be packing, and my mother wants me to figure out how all my taxes are going to work despite not having all that information, but the dog has decided I should do nothing other than sit on the couch with him, so that's what I'm doing.

As I said previously, it's my intention to release this pattern free to the public for a variety of reasons. Taxes are included in these reasons, in fact, so I'm totally thinking about taxes, Mom!

terriko: I am a serious academic (Twlight Sparkle looking confused) (Serious Academic)
I submitted my thesis!

My defence date is set for October 14th at 9:30am, which is going to hurt a little since I'm currently 2h shifted, but I'll have been back for a week then so I should have time to adjust.

I have a computer at work! And access to stuff on other systems! And things to learn! And have already been watching totally inappropriate videos with my new labmates and got invited to play League of Legends with them once I have it set up. ;)

And then I came home, had dinner, and wrote about my little ponies. Learn about how My Little Ponies helped me make my first "videogame" and then read the interview with Lauren Faust to find out how Michael Bay helped bring us a show for girls worth watching (wait, what?):



OMG, Ponies! (Or… my love affair with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

I always thought my friend Sarah summed up the appeal of My Little Pony the best:

Once you believe in rainbow-coloured ponies who can talk, there isn’t much limit to your imagination.



PS - for those who haven't been reading my private posts, take special note of my new "Serious Academic" icon. ;)

PPS - I may be more myself again with a break in the thesis grind.

PPPS - Also, I might have internet at home come Monday! And John might manage to visit! Everything is awesome!
