State Of The Trout: Wanna see something creepy?

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey guys! This is a short update. If you follow me on Twitter, you have heard of my shitty weekend. Two cars, a refrigerator, my laptop and the only keyboard in the house compatible with my iMac broke. the fuck. down. Seriously. Then last night, our Kindle Fire remote stopped working and poor Mr.Jen was like, “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO US?!” But he’s been pretty dramatic recently, anyway.

The point is, the reason I haven’t had a Handbook For Mortals post this week so far is that I was having to use text-to-speech to write it, which makes everything take roughly twelve times longer than just typing. Trying to finagle rides for kids to appointments and activities without a car was equally time-consuming. Now, the reason I’m telling you all of this is that I’ve been very open with my mental health issues and I don’t want anyone to think I’m sliding back down to the low point I was at earlier in the year. I’m fine, just everything I own is broken.

That said, tomorrow there’ll be a Handbook For Mortals recap instead of the advice column, and then next week hopefully everything will be calmed down and returned to normal. In the meantime, I expressed myself through the medium of video. Please watch me talk about my creepy Anthony Head memorabilia collection:

 

Apologies in advance for the lack of captions. When I have a working keyboard, I will absolutely add some.

Anyway, I should have a new keyboard today, USPS willing. Cross your parts for me.

Nightmare Born New episodes every Tuesday, exclusively on Radish

The cover for Nightmare Born shows the silhouette of two teens facing each other, holding hands in front of a night sky. There's a scary dracula-looking castle on a hill in the background and a full moon in the clouds. The title and two logos for the Google Play and Apple App store show beneath my name.

    Does your local library have web access? Some libraries let you use their labs for a time slot.
    Sorry your equipment is possessed (prob. Pazuzu) but glad you and your family are otherwise OK.
    I was THOROUGHLY shipping Giles back in the day.

    “WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO US?!”

    If The Sims 3 has taught me anything, you probably have a ghost infestation and need your cat to exorcise the broken objects.

    You are seriously one of my favourite humans. I have very few and you should be proud.
    Ps. Your Giles collection is amazing (and only a little creepy lol)

    Hi, long time reader, first time commenter. I have the same Giles action figure and in the version of figure I’ve got the giant cross has a dagger in one end. I wasn’t sure if you had a different version but since you didn’t mention I figured I’d share the super detailed joy. The video was great, thank you for the laugh and I have Giles collection envy.

    I met my favourite singer a year ago and even though it was a perfectly normal interaction, I still cringe whenever I think about it. So I totally get that not wanting to meet your favourite celebrities thing.

    This is awesome, AKA not creeptastic, and I wish I had that plate! Also, do you know where you did the post with the commercial analysis? I’m super interested to read this now.

    This whole video makes me happy. Thank you for sharing your slightly creepy collection!! My self of Orphan Black funko pop figures has a long way to go to become a slightly creepy Tatiana Maslany shelf 😛
