current mood: exhausted

Just a quick WTF post because -- it's a long story and it's easier to link people to it than explain fifty thousand times XD Cut for rambling, German men, and inappropriate use of Nutella.

Okay, so. This is the earthCollapse )

Quiet, Captain Poppinfresh! I think they are talking about your golden flakey crust!

... yeah, the title has nothing to do with anything XD Two things, one random, one important.

Random first:

So for those of you who haven't heard, I have lately totally gotten into Supernatural. Latecomer, I know, but -- I'm lame, what can I say? I'm also a TA for a French class, and I was dorkily excited when I realized -- we have Sam and Dean clones in our class. Okay -- the Sam clone is not like Sam at all, he just had the same haircut. But he cut his hair short so he's not Sam anymore. Sad days. But the Dean is actually -- Deanish XD We were at a Mardi Gras dinner when it hit me who he reminded me of.

Me: ... okay this is random and has nothing to do with anything, but do you watch Supernatural?
James: ... I might have seen it, I have no idea.
Me: Because you remind me of the main character.
James: Why, because I'm ruggedly handsome? *charming grin*
Me: ... and that is why you're Dean.

A few minutes later, he realized we had dessert on the table and called down to someone to pass it to him. Though 'called down' is a little too polite for what he actually said XD "-- PIE! THERE'S PIE? GIMME THE PIE!"

In sum: Dean. XD

In other, more important/exciting news... I have a new girlfriend. Really new, as of -- two days ago. Day and a halfish -- it was a long rambling conversation that eventually lead to us obliquely referring to the fact that we like someone, and the other person inferred that that someone was us. ... if that... makes sense. Maybe not, it was confusing.

Anyhoo, Rachelle (prosopopeya) and I are together. Is the -- point of the earlier rambling. I'm still a little scatterbrained, apologies. So... yay :)

And now, to go break my brain with more Lolita. What a terribly disturbing book. But... interesting. And also required for class, so there we go.

And now for something completely different

current mood: blah
current song: Die Schatten Werden Lenger - Elisabeth

Because I don't feel like posting a big serious entry about how emo and blah I am, have a meme:

Give me a character of mine (I'll take past, current, and original characters) and I'll answer the following questions:

01.) Full name?
02.) Best friend?
03.) Sexuality?
04.) Favorite color?
05.) Relationship status?
06.) Ideal mate?
07.) Turn-ons?
08.) Last sexual experience?
09.) Favorite food?
10.) Crushes?
11.) Favorite music?
12.) Biggest fear?
13.) Biggest fantasy?
14.) Quirks in bed?
15.) Bad habits?
16.) Biggest regret?
17.) Best kept secrets?
18.) Last thought?
19.) Worst sexual/romantic experience?
20.) Biggest insecurity?

Any character, from any time. I -- don't really have a list anywhere because I fail. But if you know me, you probably know at least one person I've played XD So ask away!

current mood: amused but tired

So for my Detective Fiction class, we had to come up with a detective as a group project, based off characteristics from books that we read. Our group read Guards! Guards! and The Eyre Affair. PTerry and Fforde. Our detective is weird XD

James Middleton is a midlevel detective at the recently established Spread Eagle Police Department (SEPD) in Wisconsin. He has a boyfriend named Bob, but they're not exclusive. Bob buys him diamond earrings from Jared's.

James is fucking the coffee boy, Chris, on the side. He is bitter because he used to be an intern, so he bosses the poor kid around all the time. Like Smecker and Greenly. He used to be bisexual, rather than flat out gay. But a few years back, his girlfriend fell off the bed and landed on his pet weasel, killing the poor creature. Since then, James has sworn off women forever.

On the weekends and after work, James goes by Jaymie, dressing in drag and frequenting a little known gay bar in the next town over, Iron Mountain. Few people in the office know about his secret life, or so he thinks. Dundunduuuuun...

The reason James became a detective was that when he was seven, his parents were poisoned and hospitalized for two weeks. Suspecting a murder plot, he launched an investigation. Turns out they were very allergic to yams and didn't know it. Yes, yams.

If anyone's intrigued, this is a rough draft of the first chapter: Of Tragic Pasts and Yams (Don't Ask)Collapse )

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah........... *flail*

current mood: frazzled

I have -- thirteen minutes before I have to get to my next class. My shirt is next to me in hopes that it will dry a little under the arms because my prescription strength antiperspirant is not strong enough for me. Fuck you, Dove. You lying liars.

Here's my day. The things I've done already have been crossed off, just to make be feel better. I trust you can read through strikethroughs.

8:30am - My roommate wakes me up by blowing her nose for about five minutes and ridiculously loudly. I try to fall back to sleep.
9:00am - Finally give up and get up to finish my paper that is due for sociology.
9:45am - Go to print paper and get something resembling food.
10:00am - 10:50am - The Freshman class I'm TAing.
11:00am - 12:20pm - Sociology (turn in paper)
12:20pm - 12:30pm - Scramble to get lunch. Run into people from my next class who tell me to hurry. I almost punch them. Run to class, manage to spill oil all over my shirt and pants. Change clothes. Scream in my room.
12:30pm - 1:20pm - French House meeting/class/inconvenient thing of doom.
1:30pm - 2:30pm - English Class, detective fiction. Watching Helen Mirim in some L&O type show. Yay.
2:30pm - 2:55pm Let my shirt air out and try not to cry while I type this entry. And breathe, a little.
3:00pm - 4:20pm - French Class, also detective fiction. Talking about a short story that I don't really care about or understand. Maybe it'll be canceled last minute. She does that sometimes.
4:30pm - 6ishpm - A talk on African culture or something that I have to go to for a daily grade in my English class. Yeah I have no idea, I just got the e-mail yesterday.
6ishpm - 6:30pm - Dinner at the French Table which I am required to do twice a week.
6:30pm - 7:00pm - Contemplate (justifiable?) homicide.
7:00pm - 8:15pm - French movie that I am required to watch for French House.
8:30pm - whenever I manage to finish - Registration for the spring.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ;___;

Just a note. If anyone says anything mildly -- offensive or lighthearted teasing or whatever, I dunno. I may well go off on them. I apologize beforehand. Off to class. Again.

ETA: Done. But loopy. Got all the classes I wanted, though! That will be a separate post at some other time XD

Oh look, an update XD

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post a line from the first 30 songs that play.
Step 3: When someone guesses both artist and song correctly, replace the lyrics with his/her name.
Step 4: Looking the lyrics up on Google or any other search engine is considered CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

To the music!Collapse )

Right now I'm not like :D, I'm like >:(

current mood: stressed
current song: I Can't Decide -- Scissor Sisters

Iiiiit's that time of year again. Exam time, final crunch time. I've gotten one paper and one exam out of the way, so that's good. One more ten page paper and my psych exam tomorrow to worry about. Then I am FREE and -- need to figure out what to do over the summer.

Bleah, I'm so damn tired. I'm so ready for school to be over. Next year should be groovy, though. I have two French classes, and two detective fiction classes (on of which is also a French class). And random Sociology. I was going to take Math this summer, but the timing didn't work out.

In happier news, my school had free, professional massages today. Ten minutes of delightfulness. The lady who did me was like, "Wow, I know we're just supposed to relax you and not try to fix you, but when I see a neck like yours I can't help it." My muscles are crazytense in my neck. She asked me if it was okay if she used some -- muscle relaxing ointment or something, or shifted the head rest, or whatever. At that point, she could have had a broom in the small of my back, her fingers up my nostrils, and be pulling in opposite directions and I could not have cared less. It felt really amazing.

Though of course I'm ruining it all by being flopped on my stomach with my computer, but I just fail like that.

So yeah, I guess just letting you all know that I'm not dead. I'm just -- crazy busy for the next thirty hours or so.

Okay -- Hamlet paper time. Wish me luck! Oy. :\

How did your brain even learn human speech? I'm just so curious.

April 13th, 2008 (02:15 pm)

current mood: frustrated
current song: The City Is At War -- Cobra Starship

Just a note that this isn't about anyone specifically, just general frustration of the world at large.

People amaze me sometimes. Just -- how amazingly... dumb people can be. I know that's unfair of me, there have just been a lot of moments this week that made me stop and go, "... really?" Some people, I wonder how they function in society. Gracious me.

I'm a little worried as to how this will affect my Student Leader class next fall (it's like a TA, only less important and there are more of us per class). Incoming Freshmen frighten me, just a little. Though the ones I met at Roo Camp yesterday seemed okay.

Wish me luck with my upcoming endeavors as a Freshman mentor, or lord XD

Two in one day? IMPOSSIBLE :O

March 10th, 2008 (09:19 pm)

But true :|

God apparently likes me today. My friend Chica gave me a cupcake for White Day, which made me happy.

No class on Friday, woohoo! And then Spring Break after that.

I went to get a bottle of water from the vending machine, and it gave me the water and a Diet Coke.

Life is halfway decent today despite getting only three hours of sleep. I have crap to worry about for Wednesday, but I don't... feel like worrying right now :)
