This place makes me crazy.  I need to go abroad next year.

It would be awesome if I just knew where.

Self-motivation through public shaming [31 Aug 2009|01:56am]
So I'm trying to guilt myself into maybe actually finishing something by posting the first sentence of the WiPs I've amassed over the summer.

WARNING: Lame.Collapse )

And now I will wallow in my shame.

Little nothings. [12 Aug 2009|12:12am]

"She died," he said, leaning forward with eyes and mouth intent, "and everything died.  The water went away, and everything just died, like none of it could exist without her."

Samuel Dalton said nothing.

"And it isn't fair, it isn't fair that all of it left leave when I can't.  I'm stuck here.  I'm rooted here."  He slid his hands across the table, fingers wide open, nails catching in the grooves.  A growing thing.  Roots spreading, taking hold.  "I'm stuck.  I can't leave this place."

Samuel Dalton said nothing.

He sat back, chin set hard, eyes all flint.  "And then you come and find it, bring the water back, like it's nothing.  Like it's just been waiting for you.  But you can't do that with everything.  You can't put a piece of iron in the ground and say, dig here, and bring her back.  Can you.  Can you?  You can't do that."

"I can't do that," Samuel Dalton said softly, and he picked up the glass standing between them and drained it dry.

I have many things in common with my family! [06 Aug 2009|04:13pm]
My mom just approached me to proudly display something that arrived for her today in the mail:  a feather from the pillow of Padre Pio.

"Why are you giving me that look?  It's a second-class relic!"

I thought that Padre Pio slept on a rock.

Every morning I'm woken by sheep [07 Jul 2009|12:57am]
If I were a semi-attractive young man, I'm pretty sure this is the expression I would have all the time. Dazzling vacant.

Let the foot and the mouth prevail if it means I can sleep.Collapse )

Goals, I can has them [08 Jun 2009|04:16pm]
Because I can apparently only accomplish things when they join forces to become a list capable of making me feel guilty about my laziness, HERE ARE THE THINGS I AM GOING TO DO THIS SUMMER.Collapse )

I guess that I have no right to complain.

Today, it is Pi Day.  The weather was perfect.  I got to meander over to the local forest.  I got to make a pie using the maple syrup that I'd bought while it was still warm from being boiled and jarred in the middle of the forest.  I got to hang out with awesome people and got a friendly compliment from an almost-stranger.  And there are 3.14 pies waiting in the common room to be eaten.

It's 7:30 at night and I've hardly done any homework.  But for at least a few more minutes, I'm totally happy.

Well.  This is the first time that my entry has actually had a real party in the common room.

And it's really annoying.

Go away, people.  Don't you have midterms for which to study?

Well I start classes for the spring semester! Know what's awesome? My earliest class of the week is at 9:55.  -BEAM-   I had 8:30 classes every day last semester, so I feel entitled to gloating.

Oh, I was in Montreal for four days. Because I do not seem to be capable of description beyond "awesome" when people ask me how it was, I will just say that there was a lot of snow and food involved. Those are the most important bits to know.

On a completely unrelated note, I guess that Christian Bale like went all batshit on people? I am not especially surprised. See this guy being all calm in little interview clips and you know that he has to be SEETHINGLY ANGRY on the inside. I should probably be upset with you for throwing a hissy fit on everyone, Christian Bale, BUT INSTEAD I AM LOLING ALL OVER THE PLACE. No, no, just check this out:

I want this to be an actual song that I can listen to with the rest of my music while I am meandering around. I mean, wouldn't this be a great workout song or something? You could totally dance to this.

...Oh God, wait, no, there IS an MP3. FUCKIN' AWESOME.

So I guess I could write all about college and talk about how crazy and awesome and sometimes very not-awesome Winter Study is, but instead I will just mention that Keanu Reeves is apparently going to play Spike in a Cowboy Bebop movie.  I screamed.

In dismay.

Oh PS I am going to a party DJed by the guy who played Hedwig in Hedwig in the Angry Inch.  I am in love with him a little bit.

Oh man I just had the fanciest meal of my life. Which, I dunno, may not actually have been that fancy to some people? But I mean we got CRANBERRY SORBET PALATE CLEANSERS and new silverware for every course and it was all very new and impressive for me!

Unfortunately I was stupidly lured in by the menu and got an entree that was not especially glorious. Remarkably, Juliette, who was by far the most out-of-place person in the entire restaurant, managed to order a tenderloin special that was like the best dish on the table. I got a tiny morsel and, oh my god, I finally understand what people mean when they describe some piece of meat as "melt in your mouth." Shit.

It was a surprise, early-birthday dinner for my mom from one of her very good friends, with whom we have been staying since the 23rd and taking advantage of in every way possible, in our own benign way. Anyway, there was a woman playing piano in the restaurant, and the friend in question got her to play a song for Mom--something from a collection of Charlie Brown Christmas music, of all things, which she plays nonstop at our house around the holidays. Naturally, she burst into tears. Awww.

It's been a good day. I let myself buy a jacket just because I thought it was sexy. The jacket was sexy. I'm afraid that I detracted from its aesthetic qualities somewhat.

Anyway, uh, I am fucking tired. Gonna go to bed now.

MALE POLE DANCERS. Good, now I have your attention. [07 Dec 2008|12:12am]
No, I really mean it. After a long hard day of missing buses and having minor anxiety attacks over papers and then writing like two pages out of ten of said papers over the course of the entire day and dealing with the extreme difficulties that baking cookies while at college entails, I'm incredibly happy to have ended my day with the discovery of Mr. Shiny Pants.

This is what I do instead of sleeping. [29 Nov 2008|12:01am]
Meme: Put your MP3/media player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. The first line of the twenty-first is the title. Post the poem that results.

Loool, why do I still have some of these songs? I like that this is actually better than something that I could write if I were trying! Well, for your entertainment I present:

I Woke Up Dead to Find that Everything had Changed

When I woke up tonight
I saw a face in the mirror
Johnny, angry Johnny, this is Jezebel in Hell
You always reached out to me and helped me believe
Wanna love ya
I've been run down, I've been lied to
Rage in the cage
Milk it for all it's worth

Mother, Father, I'm doing OK
Because I'm happy to be sad
The lovers they kiss and slowly they turn
Heart-carved tree trunk, Yankee bayonet

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
I never knew this could happen to me
It's all out on the streets today but you, you've found a place to hide
All simple monkeys with alien babies

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
Medicine man, you dance me across the country
You toss in a word
Smash glass against the wall

To compensate for losing my dragonfly necklace in the Albany airport, having a small child cause a highlighter to leak all over the purse that I bought in France, and having two essays and two finals looming in my near future, I bought myself two DVDs and the third season of Supernatural for under thirty bucks.

Yes, this is how I start out all gift-buying seasons: by getting things for myself.

ETA: O-oh my goodness. You know what's hot? Eastern Promises, is what. I really wish that I had thought to include that in my order this morning. Five bucks for Russian villiany, unf.

I had a dream that I went to take a shower and somehow/accidentally/for some reason brought some stuff that I'd written with me and left it sitting out in the bathroom, where a couple of my entrymates discovered and read it while I was showering. I knew they were reading it, but I couldn't stop them because, like, it's a little suspicious when someone comes flying out of the shower to stop you from reading something. It was, uh, compromising material, but at first I wasn't extremely worried because they had no way of tracing it back to me, and I didn't think that I would immediately surface as the prime suspect.

Until I realized that it was inexplicably stapled to the front of one of my class essays... which had my name on every page.

Uhhhh. Yeah, I'm just hoping that that wasn't one of those dreams that come true.

Well, that's real charming. My adventures in spelunking that I was so keen on bragging about got me sick. Not fucking cool.

You know, I think that college might be spoiling me a bit. Today? Today one of my classes went spelunking*.

*And by "spelunking" I mean that we crawled through the mud on our hands and knees into a watery cavern inside the bedrock. I won, though, because I wriggled the farthest into the cave and got the dirtiest.

Sometimes there just aren't enough wtfs in the world. [29 Sep 2008|05:18pm]
When you work in the cataloging section of a college library, you sometimes get to peek into really interesting books that you would never have discovered otherwise.

And then, sometimes, you find books that begin with interesting philosophical statements stamped across pictures of guys with bloody noses and then go on to find that they actually feature Russian dudes having sex with farm animals.

First day of college [04 Sep 2008|03:01pm]
You know that you've had a bad day when a second button falling off of your shirt drives you into the nearest coffee shop to have an over-priced smoothie.

I'm gonna take a nap now.
