steel_lace, after someone said she saw the good parts in bad people and all the bad parts in good people: </span>
"I asked her to define good and bad. She had trouble with that one"
I thought that deserved to be quoted.
i'm also ill still. partly i am feeling rather strange due to being injected with flu earlier on today. and partly i feel like i am being punched repeatedly in the stomach by an invisible gnome-like creature, possibly called derek.
Compared to this time last year, are you thinner or fatter?
Due to a steady diet of Ramen Noodles, Doom is thinner and his blood has been replaced entirely by MSG.
Did you fall in love in 2004?
Doom doesn't know of love.
He DID, however, fall in "have sex with" a few times, which is nice.
Who did you miss?
Captain America. By, like, an inch. It was embarassing because Doom's aim is usually pretty good.
-- And so forth... A small selection from Victor von Doom's 2004. Read, love, fear.
I was thinking this morning about why I have my R-MWC diploma displayed in a frame on my shelf. It's not because I'm really proud of it, not because I think it's some life-altering accomplishment that I should beam with pride about forever. It's more like having a t-shirt that says "I survived several years of money-leeching, drama-filled, overworked, overwrought, and pretentious slave labor and all I got was this lousy t-shirt."
I've been eating so many apples lately, I'm practically a medieval temptress.
-spectacular gets on her soapbox about soulmate fic in the HP fandom. I love this woman.
Didn't he come in SECOND?
Yeah, but so did Dubya once, and look what happened to his career. Apparently, "mediocre" and "almost made it" are the new winners in this modern world. ;-)
I wake up, pull the blinds aside and what do I behold out in the splendor of the early morning dew?
1) My mother, in her ugly as hell pink robe and my Sponge Bob slippers
2) The dog, pulling said mother behind her like a train of toilet paper.
3) Coyotes in hot pursuit.
I should be paid for this.
When watching "A Wedding Story" on TLC I want to get married, when watching "A Makeover Story" I want new clothes.
But, watching "A Baby Story" makes me want to become a nun and hide away in a cloister in the Alps of Switzerland protected by a genetically altered breed of St. Bernards who eat manflesh rather than go through that torture.
Well. Since this was kinda not a real post, I offer you this haiku:
Dragons cry molten rubies
Will kill everybody soon.
exquiscadavre replied to him with the following:
Oh no! Here I thought we were going to get along so well. After all, you list self-loathing amongst your interests, and I feel, after knowing you only briefly, that I too could take an interest in loathing you.
ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh
ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh

"My ex-gf and I were watching CoS some time back and afterwards, the following conversation ensued:
Ex: "So does it make me a bad lesbian if I want Lucius to come over here and do evil, naughty things to me?"
Me: "Only if he doesn't bring Snape with him to do the same evil, naughty things to me."
Ex: "Oh, OK. ... Can we switch afterwards?"
Me: "Yes. Actually, I'll insist we do."
So she made this icon to commemorate the release of PoA (a.k.a. Further Thoughts Unbecoming Of Lesbians) on DVD."
I am easily amused :)
All I have to say is, you know that 'diva singy warbly thing'? You know, when you wave your hand around as your voice tries to follow your hand? I certainly hope that when singers are in the studio, they call it that 'diva warbly thingy', and that they giggle when they're talking about it. Because if they take themselves seriously when they do that in every freakin' song, then my faith in humanity will take a huge nose dive.
...Then I just decided to avoid all words using the letter "s", ala David Sedaris. This led to a great difficulty with plurals and possessives, as well as generic and useful pronouns like "this" and "these" and "those", and halfway through the day I decided some hissing was preferable to speaking with stiff and overly formal diction, sounding for all the world like I'd fallen out of the Pretentious Tree, hit every branch on the way down, and landed on the ground with a forceful exhalation of breath in a sound not unlike--you guessed it--a hisssssssss.
...I have no other choice but to enter a convent, where I will give up the rest of my days to....whatever people do in a convent, nunlike things, I suppose, like making soup and illuminating medieval manuscripts and reminescing about the good old party days with that rambunctious, crazy Mother Teresa. I'll enter a convent and once I'm there, I will take a vow of silence. Only I'll be referring to it as a "vow of quiet." It was nice knowing you all.
air_and_angels discusses a particularly bad version of Jack the Ripper:
Sergeant Godley is wearing a ridiculous 1940s sort of fedora hat. It keeps ruining my suspension of disbelief. It is so not period. It is a time-travelling hat from the future. It is FutureHat, the Hat of Tomorrow.
This past Saturday, her RA arranged a lovely get-together wherin everyone would release all their pre-finals stress by whacking a piñata. The following exchange was had:
( Collapse )
Today? The aftermath. Hilarity ensues.
So now I've got to learn all the words to the Matzoh Tzekivah song, and find out how to eat latkes properly, and learn the hora dance, probably all with my roommate ten feet away wondering why I'm doing the grapevine in our little two-foot-square dorm room. This is all in the two hours between my last paper being due and the commencement of the thingy.
I have no idea how any of this happens to me. All I do is try not to make people cry or hate me, and I end up trying to figure out Hebrew phonetic pronunciation as I write a paper on the Ramayana. *head. desk.*
Go, read, and MOCK HER PAIN.

Production Stage Manager: Oh, and what the deal with Apollo is, because I thought Apollo was like, you know, drew the chariot of the sun across the sky, but he does other stuff, apparently.
Sam: No, he does both. That's Phoebus Apollo, the sun-chariot guy. But he's also just Apollo Apollo.
PSM: So what's the difference?
Sam: Well, Phoebus is an incarnation. There's Apollo, and then Apollo with...accessories. It's like you have a regular Barbie doll, right, and then you have Astronaut Barbie.
Director: That's the best explanation of the Greek Pantheon ever.
