Purple Pixy Stix...
There's Just Something About
Purple Pixy Stix
..........So you come seeking knowledge
about what purple Pixy Stix have to do with anything. By now you must have
guessed that it has to do with Kaioshin's complexion, but in truth, the
Miko's relation to Pixy Stix and Kaioshin goes, uh, much 'deeper' than
Well, for those of you seeking an answer... I have it, but it's a rather
strange a slightly long story. It all started one day, when I was upstairs
watching Dragonball Z with Firefury. We are known for MSTing the show and
randomly making comments about the characters. Now, this fine comment popped
up out of the blue one day, before I became the lunatic I am today. (Of
course I was lunatic then anyway.) I declared that Kaioshin, or rather,
"Shin", was "PIXY STICK PURPLE!" It was early in the week, if I recall
correctly. Soon after, over the weekend , I developed a rather unhealthy
fixation on and a craving for Pixy Stix. So I plotted to get some on the
monthly junk food run before going to work at the Los Angeles Kart Club's
monthly race, another week away. However, I ended up annoying my mom so
much she decided she would get me some.
..........I had at that time also been
solely a Tasuki and Quatre fangirl. Before that, I was only a loyal Tasuki
fangirl, and a proud member of the Drooling Tasuki Fan Club. (Still am
a proud member too.) I was very set on holding onto what loyalty
I had left after I had cracked and become a Quatre fangirl. Firefury was
very set on destroying my loyalty. Or rather, getting me to 'expand' my
'horizons'... Very set on it. But she hadn't started in on me yet, because
she hadn't known much of my ailment.
..........As the days progressed, I
complained to friends of this strange Pixy Stix issue. It was Zero X who
actually ended up planting the seed which Firefury watered. Here is a excerpt
Bish meaning 'bishounen' of course.
|* One runs around
* One stops, "You know, I worry myself sometimes.
Ever since I had my realization last week that Shin was Pixie Stick Purple,
I've developed an unhealthy fixation on Pixie Sticks."
<One> Do you suppose it means anything?
<One> Am I talking to myself? ;-;
* One grabs ZX and shakes him roughly.
<Zero_X> Ack! @_@
<One> WHAT DOES IT MEEEEEAN!?
<Zero_X> You like Kaioshin as a bish? ..;
..........My craving for Pixy Stix was
curbed briefly, after I spent morning of November 6th paying homage to
the porcelain throne
. The fatal result of my failing to take my first birth control pill on
Sunday, and thus having to take two pills on Monday. (For my extremely
out of control PMS, mind you. Don't go getting any ideas.) The night of
the 6th, when I was no longer in extreme pain, I told my problem to Firefury.
Perhaps an even more fatal mistake, though much less painful. She attacked
my loyalties, and soon, I was questioning them. I'm not a huge DBZ fan,
so why was this hassling me so? It just didn't make sense. Well, on the
7th I complained to friends of Firefury's actions, and Fury continued her
..........So it was the night
of the 7th I went out into the backyard. It was a clear and windy night.
It was cold out, but I didn't mind much. For about 45 minutes I sat cross
legged on a lounge chair, listening to my meditation music. (It's a CD
called 'Zen Garden' and it's got BEAUTIFUL music.) I did not tell my answer
to Firefury until the 8th, attempting to seek revenge by keeping it from
her, though obviously that plan failed.
..........I had concluded that when
I had been watching DBZ that day, and seeing Buu beat up Kaioshin
, I felt the same way that I felt whenever I watched evil Tamahome beating
up my beloved Tasuki
. (Did I mention after awhile of watching Majin Buu
pounding poor Kaioshin with my arms crossed and looking miffed, I caved
and shouted at the screen? That was fuel for my sister, and believe me,
she used it.)
..........On the 8th I confessed, and
have been surprising my friends who haven't found out since then. I took
the title of Kaioshin no Miko, began hunting images, researching, and once
I had images, made a concept sketch of the graphics layout. I made the
graphics, my little sprites, and then began to build this shrine. It is
to Pixy Stix, Zero X, and Firefury I owe my Miko-hood too. Mostly Pixy
Stix though. For had I not declared Kaioshin-sama was Pixy Stick purple,
it may never have gone this far. ~ Kaioshin no Miko
