(As an aside, I really do adore the Mortal Kombat movie, cheese and all. As far as I'm concerned, it's the 90s version of Enter the Dragon.)
Anyway, I wanted to let y'all know that the initial barrage of gifts for Operation: Lymeparty has found its target:
|ZOMG LAZOR EYES|
All right, now let's talk about Stretch Goals. First off, I want to thank everyone who, through a combination of love, rhetoric, and violent screaming (much love to ya, Squeaky ;) told me in no uncertain terms that I was off the hook for any and all pictures that made me uncomfortable. Sadly, this kind of cuts the knees off of Tiers 5 and 6, and I really don't know how to fix that. If anyone else wants to make suggestion, please go ahead.
Tier 1: Fulfilled.
Tier 2: There doesn't seem to be a consensus about what I should dramatically read. May I suggest my epic "Batman, as written by Chuck Palahniuk"? I know I'm no Kevin Conroy, but on a really bad allergy day I'm sure I can be at least as scratchy as Christian Bale.
Tier 3: Jennifer has taken over for Squeaky in lieu of S.W.'s bad health, but we are still having a heck of a time coming up with a good duet. I don't much want to be cast as "the guy," but that's what 90% of duets are. Blargh.
Tier 4: "Gunnie Cosplay." Right now, I've only heard three ideas that might be feasible: Annie Oakley; some kind of "My Little Mosin," probably involving an ushanka and a greatcoat; and a re-enactment of the profile picture I had before I replaced it with a pony version:
The middle one is probably the easiest to do, as I'm certain Oleg can get an ushanka and greatcoat. Don't know about the costuming for Annie Oakley, and while we might get the costumes for Nerd Huntress, I worry (as is my nature) that my features will result in a VERY unappealing photograph.
Tier 5 has been removed from the table per Squeaky Wheel's request. I still feel bad about not fulfilling this. How about we wait until my big reveal September 1, and then you folks can make requests on this and Tier 6 after having seen my real face?
And that's about all I have right now... please comment below, as I crave feedback.
