10 things you didn't know about Tehmtnlion
// Submitted @ 3:10 PM on 02.01.2009
1. I am a huge Final Fantasy freak.
Final Fantasy VII was my introduction to the FF series and it was the first game I bought when I picked up the good ol' ps1. Shit hit fabric when I put it in and saw the mind-blowing graphics, and shit continued to seep into the fabric as I was too enthralled with the storyline to bother cleaning myself. I think FF7 has had a huge impact on me and is one of the main factors that made me take an interest in writing and storytelling.
2. I smoke pot.
I'm not going to praise the benefits of it, or shove it in your face. You either smoke it to or you don't. I however find it deliciously awesome.
3. I reached my weight goal of losing 50 pounds a month ago.
Basically, I started to eat healthily and not go overboard on snacks and fast food. And I went to the gym. It was difficult and slightly embarrassing at first (I got winded very easily, and I would often notice women giggling at my attempts at exercise, fucking bitches) but with the help of a really good gym buddy, I kept going regularly and even had a date with one of the women that had previously laughed at me (she was a bitch anyway and I left her at the restaurant to pay the bill).
4. I cannot get enough old school Star Trek.
Come on. William Shatner makes me laugh so hard with his over acting. And his two best friends is a tight-ass conservative (Spock) and a drunken liberal (McCoy). Could also be attributed to the 2nd thing you didn't know about Tehmtnlion.
5. My moniker was actually one of my worst fears as a child.
When I was a kid, my dad liked to mess with my head. For example when I was 6, he convinced me that there was only one mountain lion on the entire planet, that it was omnipotent, and it was hungry for my flesh. I would sometimes think that I had seen it and would delve into panic attacks, afraid that those moments would be my last. It took me two 3 years to shake my fear of that The Mountain Lion is everywhere. Once I was introduced to online fps', I knew that I would share the fear of the omnipotent mountain lion upon my enemies and so far, so good.
6. I practice Iaido and a few other Japanese Sword Techniques.
I read a lot and when i was about 14 I started to read a lot of eastern philosophy. Most namely, I read Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Hagakure, The I-Ching, and several miscellaneous pieces of samurai literature. Since then, I have studied these texts in hopes of doing my thesis on samurai culture. As a side effect, when I went to Japan when I was 18, I bought a handcrafted katana which has brought me hours of joy and peaceful meditation in my martial art. I strongly believe that everyone should learn about the way of the samurai and their outlook on life. I live my life around this one creed of their:
"Every decision, regardless of scope and detail, should be made in the span of 7 breathes"
7. I once stole a monkey from the Toronto Zoo.
I'm writing a story about it to give you all the details. It was fucking glorious.
8. I am distrustful of Mennonites.
I have never trusted a group of people that blatantly refused to use any of the advances that we enjoy. It's unsettling and it makes me think that "the Minges" are up to something. Until I have figured out what exactly these bastards are up too, I will continue buying their delicious fresh produce in an attempt to learn more of their culture and infiltrate their society, enabling me to destroy it's core.
9. I have Kinemortophobia (fear of zombies).
I am absolutely serious when i say that I believe that the undead will rise up and start to eat the world. This fear has caused me to do extensive research on the subject (I submitted a paper in one of my history courses for the final project on zombies which was over 75 pages, single spaced, 12 font. I got 100%) I have since then created a bug out plan that I am certain that it will allow me to survive and escape to safety. I'm in the midst of rewriting my paper for publication.
10. I just moved into my new place today.
It's awesome and my housemates all rock. The move is why I've been absent from posting stories (for those who care) but now that I'm in and established, I'll start the beast back up and give you some more mind candy.
I love you all.
