I know what my perfect job would be.
I want to be a consultant companies hire to watch a movie before it comes out with an eye towards what products will sell.
Seriously, I’d do a much better job than whoever is making these decisions.
The LEGO movie? What lego sets do you need? SPACESHIP!
GOTG? Dancing Baby Groot, baby’s room projector that makes Groot lights, a line of little animals to sit on your computer like Yondu’s.

First fandom: Battlestar Galactica (80s version), Dragonriders of Pern (the ones I wrote my first fanfiction for)
Current fandom(s): Clint Barton (Avengers, Hawkguy, etc) Buffy, Firefly, Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones, Stargate SG1, plus many more
Describe an early fandom memory from the dark ages: I talked my older sister who was in college into taking me to see Star Wars opening weekend. She didn’t want to bother with her annoying little kid sister, but my mom made her do it, so we piled into her VW bug and puttered over to this little theater. The line was wrapped around the building just to buy tickets and another to get into the next show. She almost bugged out, but I turned on the waterworks and threatened to tell mom, so we got in line. Bought tickets for not the next show, but the one after since they were sold out that far in advance. Went and ate McDonald’s and bummed around, her bitching at me the whole time. Went back, got in line, crammed in a seat on the far side … and was blown away. She’s still the biggest Star Wars nerd on the planet and I will never, ever let her forget that I had to force her to see it first.
Cinemax, VHS, DVD, or one of the 13 channels on the dial: VHS was the first we had other than the 3 main stations and Public Broadcasting. I used to tape shows off of the TV to keep.
AM or FM radio? FM. Always listened to Casey Kaseem’s Top 40 weekly countdown. The show’s still running today with Ryan Seacrest as the host.
Band/musician that makes you sentimental for your youth: The Eagles and Prince (before he changed his name to a sigil and really went off the deep end)
Band/musician that resonates with you today: 2Cellos, Lorenna McKennitt, Bastille, Panic in the Disco
Kids? Two beautiful girls
First car or other “Whoa I’m ADULT!” purchase: Nothing like buying a first home to really feel grown up and completely in debt. All those papers to sign and mumbo-jumbo legal speak and numbers that are terrifyingly too big to think about.
Did you ever use Disneyland/Disney World ride tickets? E ticket attractions, baby! Yes indeed. In fact, one of my claims to fame is that I was in the Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on the day they had to close the gates because it was at full capacity. I was super young, like in a stroller, and don’t remember it, but I was there!
Finish this sentence: “Kids today are so _______.” much more open about sex and sexuality than they were in my day. (that’s a good thing)
And if you want (totally optional!) share your age: Above 40 is all I’ll cop to.
A short primer on Cakeisnotpie …
I’m not exactly normal ….
I’m one of the old farts here on tumblr
If I had to pick one character my blog is about …
So much Clint Barton
But then there’s
And also …
And I guess you could say …
Although, if we’re talking actors …
Not that other handsome men don’t find their way onto this blog …
And other movies and shows aren’t represented …
I’m a writer of fanfiction …
And my ships are legion …
Phil & Clint
Bruce & Clint
Dean Winchester & Clint
Although, pretty much I ship Clint Barton with all the Avengers …
I livegif really bad SYFY original movies when I can find them
I post lots of food porn
And occasional rants about life, the universe and everything
I’m a college professor who teaches pop culture
And a mom
Pretty much, I do what I want.
Welcome on board my crazy train!
Sit back, relax, have a drink, and enjoy the ride.
Some neighbors just moved in a couple of houses down,and my mom said I should bake a pie. I have been informed that this may not be acceptable.
Update:I fixed it.
Update:I get to keep the pie.
Even while away, the fashionablesassycupcake is killing me slowly with those maple, pancake, bacon cupcakes.
So, lots of shit happening around the Cake!family house. My mom has sold her condo and we’re going to help pack up all her stuff (and it is an impossible amount of knick knacks and other things. Not kidding. She collects Snow Village, nativity sets, angels, and grandmas/grandpas. AND artwork from two favorite painters. Serious plastic tubbage going on.) She doesn’t have a reliable wifi connection, so I’ll mostly be on my new phone with the for-shit tumblr app.
I doubt I’ll get much writing done as I’ll be shepherding her through crying jags, bouts of depression, and basically getting her ready to move right after we leave. I’ll be so emotionally drained, I imagine I’ll sleep for a few days when we finally get back. Even if I manage to sneak off and write for my sanity’s sake, I won’t be able to post anything unless I find a Panera or a Starbuck’s for a few hours (which sounds good now and will sound like Nirvana in a few days).
Just wanted to let those of you waiting with baited breath for me to update know. Will be a bit. :-(
Keep me in your thoughts. This is a really hard time for my mom and the family in general.
Need food. Must go. Grading coma approaching. Getting in car to find nourishment….
*add zombie picture here of person with squinty eyes, sore fingers, and flames licking up the side of her head*

It’s on the way! I have this thing called work, woman! :)
