Dear voters,



No love,
akeyoftime: (flowers and music)
That was noise was thunder and that flash was lightning.

It's been a wet and rainy day in the city and I haven't been nearly as productive as I wanted to be, but that? Makes everything better in its own way. I'll keep stressing, but it's nice to be reminded that there's a whole world out there beyond class and papers and my looming exam. Ah, perspective.

Okay guys, so I am really in love with this new format called "podcast". Where have you been all my life, bb? Moar CBC footage and Savage Lovecasts!

I'm sitting in the basement, watching scenes from the remake of "Casino Royale" with my youngest brother, driving him crazy with my commentary. I wonder aloud that it might be an interesting comparison to look at the original and then the new version and to see what has changed and what has remained the same, with a particular eye for gender. But, my friends, it's not just enough to compare them, no, I sit there thinking "I should write a paper about it!"

I may have been in academia too long.

I have gone through yet another AC adapter power cord. That's the third one since August.

I have a short journal entry, a five page lit essay and about 750 words for a take-home exam left to complete. It's getting to be a bit of a time crunch, since I'd like to be done by Monday night, but so long as I can get it in gear today I should be fine. Must remember to carve out time for Lord of the Rings watching with Grace and Robert! I am going out caroling tomorrow as a last GME hurrah!

Avatar 3x08 is a fantastically creepy story and a great place to end my mini-Avatar marathon for the night. The idea it introduced was called a long time ago by [livejournal.com profile] jezebeau, but it's even more disturbing in practice than it ever was in theory. I'm thinking, Ty Lee, maybe? (Probably maybe spoilers to be found in the comments.)

Halloween has been, for the most part, a success. Lots of class time, a few hours spent with Maud, a while with Alex, and a very successful (and satisfying) class presentation, as well as other bits and bobs. The class presentation was an oral storytelling exercise in autobiography and I have never walked away from such a thing feeling so good. The professor said it was "perfect", which is something I have never heard before and will probably never hear again. Spent the day in costume too - unsurprisingly, everyone thought my tenth Doctor costume was either a new look to match the new hair (ps I cut my hair super short), or that I was dressing up for the presentation. I then won at geekery by giving my name as "The Doctor" when I grabbed some dinner at a restaurant. (I'm sorry I missed you, Mitch! I couldn't find a place to get time in, well, time.)

This morning, I found a "Vote Saxon" poster pasted between the words of my housemate's "Bad Wolf" chalk scribbling. I literally tripped over my own feet in my excitement to get back to residence to find a camera. (I am for the win) It would appear that [livejournal.com profile] rainbowfox and I started something with that first batch of chalk drawings.

I imagine you've all heard that particular bit of news about Dumbledore by now.

Excerpt from the paper:
Dumbledore's love, she observed, was his "great tragedy."

"Oh, my God," Rowling laughed, "the fan fiction."

(It is another gorgeous day and I think I am going to try and to get Robert outside with those boffer swords of his.)

Random Fact of the Day: In the 19th century, dude was virtually synonymous with dandy and retained much of that meaning into the 1930s and 40s in certain subcultures.

I really want to write a Doctor Who/House crossover, where House tries to bully Martha and she lights right back into him. Possibly with Wilson as bystander (eventual referee?). I'm pretty sure I could manage Martha, but House and Wilson would be much more a challenge to write. Anyway, I'm having fun playing around with the idea in my head.
