[[color:green:Describing Self.....]]

I'm a bit of a retroish geek. I am of course a CloudCuckoolander, but not an exuberantly over the top one. You know, less like [[CowboyBebop Ed]] and closer to Murdock or Mulder (I also like to say things in the most appropriate but least comprehensible way possible.) I also personify damn near everything. I like subtle or subtlish humour, ''alleged'' cheerfulness, aviation and other sky-related things, 90s pop culture, caffeine. I also hate talking in the first person but it's hard to avoid. I'm into works that say several things about several things, maybe with some sort of "cleverness" or mindscrewery, and think that (overall) plot, in the 'sequence of events' sense is one of the least important aspects, so long as it's usually there, as a form of structure, preferably oddified. If you've read this far you can see i have a tendency to 'invent' words on the fly.

** STOP YOU IMPERSONATOR.
* [[color:red: absolution]]...[[color:blue:abomination]]...-@/VoidsEmpathy
* No! Don't read ''1984''! It will cause you CJD and paper cuts! Hope I'm not too late. By the way, your troper name is [[TheInsomniac a great truth]]. ~@/{{Belfagor}}
** [[color:blue:''how do you know...'' Aaahhh!]]
** Would you mind to bring some vandalism on my page? Unless the book has already cut you to death, which would be incredibly sad.
* [[color:white: Hello there]] - @/{{pyr0h1tman8}}
* Haha, it's almost 2:30 in the AM where I am right now. Figured with a name like yours, you'd be the perfect person to share that bit of information with. --@/SeanMurrayI
** Hoho, 3:02 in the AM. --@/SeanMurrayI, again.
* If you don't need sleep, you are a robot. /wmg -@/{{VanishingReality}}
* TheRamones rock! --@/SeanMurrayI
* This vandalism is a lie. - @/CompletelyNormalGuy
* [[@/KarlKadaver November 21, 2011]] - [[ApocalypticLog Journal Entry #243]] - Haven't slept in days. Things still follow me. Gun not loaded. Kills them. Tired. So tired. Cant sleep. Have to keep moving. Maybe writing will keep me awake. Uses enough of my brain. Writing thinking writing. Maybe find sleep in this house. House empty. Just like the others.
* I considered going with my normal meta-vandalism, but I couldn't think of anything witty enough so I just wrote this. Would that make this meta-meta-vandalism. - @/CompletelyNormalGuy
* I would like to say you're welcome to your vandalism on my page. - @/JRPictures
* HAL 9000 avatar? Nice. ~ @/{{A Stray Bard}}
* This isn't vandalism and I'm not O'Malley.
* So here I am vandalizing your page again, and once again I'm having a hard time thinking of something particularly interesting to say. Some people have accused me of being too wordy in my vandalisms. Can you believe that? [[HypocriticalHumor Me? Wordy?]] Well, anyway... what was I saying again. I lost my train of thought. Well, see you later. - @/CompletelyNormalGuy
* Pretend that I wrote something very deep and profound here. - @/KarlKadaver
* Yeah!! Who needs something aszzzz, I MEAN AS USELESS AS SLEEPzzzzz... -@/EternalNoob
* I want ''beets!'' - @/KatanaCat
* So I heard you like tropes, troper. - @/JenKunoichi351
* [--I-I'm vandalising your page...--] [---I-if that's all right with you...?---] - @/{{Deadbeatloser22}}
* I sniffed caffeine powder to stay awake before it was cool. I also drank a liter of pure menthol. Once. Didn't sleep since 1998. ~@/DhanaRagnarok
** [[color:blue:hahaha. Also, I'm required by my musical preferences to say that 1998 was only one week ago]] ~ @/WhoNeedsSleep
* Disliking first person is something Vanishing Reality also does. -@/{{VanishingReality}}
* You and the sloths must not look at each other in the zoo, right? [[DontExplainTheJoke (I mean, when you visit the zoo..)]] - @/AmusedTroperGuy
* This is not vandalism. [[TrueArt This is a duck.]] @/{{Ailedhoo}}
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nvs5pqf-DMA Look at the bones!]] @/{{Ailedhoo}}
* Greetings!! @/{{GethKnight}}
* Make a Contract with me! @/{{DaeronEl}}
