This is a little bit fantastic. I don't watch the new Knight Rider, even if it does have Paul Campbell as a cast member (why would they cut off his adorable curls?), but this came up in [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho and it's definitely A Bit Awesome. I love it when show runners are geeky too.

There was a panhandler on the street attempting an unusual approach today. He called it the "Street Metal Recycling Program", which involved dropping off those round bits of metal in your pockets to the nearest street person to recycle.

Skeazy men on the subway are skeazy. Korean barbeque is amazingly delicious!

Was this ever the wrong week to try and make social plans. Strike two. I can use the time to deal with the million and one things to do before I leave, but damn. I really wanted to see Marilyn too.

I still feel like I should be getting back to my schoolwork any time now. My brain clearly hasn't got the message that it doesn't have to work up until the last minute this semester. (Which is pretty much a huge victory.)

I'm most of the way through Farscape's third season. I'm delighted to see that they've finally gotten over the Plot Episode/Filler Episode/Plot Episode/Filler Episode thing.

Skype continues to be really awesome. Long conversations with best friends can cure pretty much all blues, I think. Or in the case of the really heavy blues (not today's case), it can certainly help make them a lighter shade. I should call Marilyn. Yeah.

I think my french class will be alright. A lot of little bits of work, but nothing over-challenging, so long as you stay on top of it. The listening exercises, which are supposed to be tricky, really aren't. Of course, I have the advantage of a francophone parent and nine years of french education. And now that I've said it, I'll have trouble. I think the grammar will probably kick my butt; grammar exercises traditionally have. I've also been volunteered to have the first oral presentation. Curse my accent and evident (more or less) capability in french! (J'n sais pas - as opposed to -Je ne sais pas.) Still! It will be done, so when the exam crunch comes, this thing will be nothing but a memory.

Tired babble. I will put my pineapple juice in the fridge and go to bed now. I've commited tommorow solely to visiting my disabilities councellor to get my accomodations set up, as well as unpacking my apartment. I am oddly reluctant to do the latter, but the sooner I do it, the sooner it will feel like a home and the happier I'll be.

If you have free time tommorow and want to visit or chat, please do stop by or call.

Last night was quite a bit of fun, even if it got off to an awkward start. Becky's having a rough go of things right now and despite extreme frustration, hell, some anger, she's coping alright. If she weren't so fiesty she could just lie down and let her pack dictate her life to her and she'd be having a much easier go of it... bless her for having some nerve! It's really a lot of fun to roleplay her outbursts and she had a smashing one at the end of game. It's so very interesting to watch who she is becoming - last night's rant turned into a kind of manifesto - and even more so to trace how she got there. I love playing characters like this. Becky is rapidly climbing her way up near Ember of Star's Flame for favourite character ever. Or perhaps I should say most satisfying.

As for me, I've had a good weekend, full of fun socialising activities and time with my family. It's nice to be reunited, on the whole. It is also amusing to see how happy it makes the dog! I am really slacking off on the exercise department now that I am no longer going up to the university; I'll have to come up with a plan to fix that because my body is going to be so unhappy if I stop altogether. Star Trek Board Games Night looks like it's a go for Thursday, which is fantastic news. That one's been in the works for a few months now.

I have no focus today. Absolutely none whatsoever. It doesn't really matter what I'm doing: my brain still wanders off on tangeants. It's really, really annoying. I have sixty million things to be doing. AUGH

I forgot to post this for over ten minutes.

Because I needed proof that I was spacey today.

Fleh. I completely forgot about the [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw chat last night. I was quite looking forward to it too! Oh well. The phone conversation I had in its stead was well worth it ^^

Last night and first thing this morning were super-productive. I did so much work in the kitchen, go me. I also have about five meals worth of main dishes in the fridge and freezer. Making rice or a baked (read: microwaved) potato and canned veggies rounds it out quickly and nicely. I also woke up this morning, got dressed and organized and took the garbage out. It took me longer to catch up on my flist than I thought it would (alas, less reading time), but there are nearly fifty journals on it these days, so it's no real surprise, I suppose. My seminar is also DONE. D O N E. Done. Yay!

Bon, time to get ready to go! I have my peer tutoring at eleven and then the whole day just gets busier from there ^^* I am bringing both lunch and dinner to campus with me - plastic containers are my friends.

I'm going to go take my alertec and get going, because wow I'm in a funny state. Have a good day everyone!

I am so lazy lately! I just don't want to do anything but lounge about or socialize. No motivation or drive to be productive, whatsoever. Even [livejournal.com profile] thecleric007's study-whip cannot save me from this lull.

My house is dusty.

Sorry for flist abuse.

Dear LJ.

I know I do not have a paid account and and such, have no real right to complain. But this constant interruption of service is very, very frustrating. My journal layout has even gone missing. So please, hurry and solve all of this.


In other news, I'm setting down to work on the postcards today, since I would LIKE to mail them while I am still here ^^* There may be one or two exceptions though, as specific requests for made and I have yet to track such postcards down.

Life continues to move along slowly. This is an amazing vacation and we may have even found a solution for next year, which takes a major weight off my chest. I was trying not to stress over it, but its hard to have your future in such complete disarray. I have several more loose ends to tie off before all of this is done, most of which cannot be done for a while yet, but this helps a lot.

Though stress will still abound until the end of exams. Oh yes. Any of you give a good back rub?

Anyone who wants to send Lauren hugs should let me know before about three pm tommorow, your time. I will deliver them in person at about five o'clock your time. Or maybe less, seeing how everything out here seems to be "just down the street" :P

I've been sad about my flist all day, because everyone seems to so that it's Valentine's Day, as most of my flist seems to be single. And it got me thinking. I've never been in a relationship for said day, but this is my first one after having been a part of a couple and I'll admit, that "bitter" part in the "Bitter Single's Society" makes a little more sense now, especially seeing all the couples at the restaurant for dinner. But I was raised to have fun with this day no matter what. Romantic love is wonderful, yes, but it is only one kind of love. You can still celebrate family and friends (which sounds as cheesy as all get out): though admittedly, this route is a little more expensive if you do the consumer thing.

I think I'm just really wierd.

And, finally, even though most of my flist is actually onto the fifteenth of the month, a Valentine's Meme )

I put on a load of laundry at about ten this morning, but when I went to go hang it up a little while ago, I saw the cap full of soap I'd forgotten to put in. I had a moment of pure sulky upsetness and then I just stood there and had a good laugh. I hate to think about the wasted water, but the time it will take for all of this to wash and air dry can still easily be swallowed, so amusement it is!

For the record, University is not so much about learning from books and teachers, but to learn how to deal with, and I quote, "unrealistic demands on your time". If you don't believe it for the artsies, look at engineers and you'll see I'm right.

I am very lucky to have Marilyn. I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am to her and the amusing part, is that I know she'd say the same. Old best friends are worth their weight in gold and then some.

I have to wash and dry my hair for my EEG tommorow. (An EEG, basically, reads your brain waves. I will look like a lab rat and have putty and electrodes on my head.) I am not allowed to put in conditioner. I am going to be a FRIZZ BALL tommorow morning. Good thing I have to wash my hair afterwards anyway to get all the gunk out of it. :P I will be Miss Frizzle, for a bit, red hair and all.

I will never ceased to be amazed at humanity and how similar we all really are, deep down - until I get old and then I'll just laugh at our youthful stupidity. Or maybe I'll just skip the waiting part and do that now. I have enough of a sense of humour for that, I think.

As I told Andrew, it is amazing how we can feel so alone with so much support around us.

On a different note, stroke meet-up tommorow. Nervous, but really looking forward to it. It's years overdue.

Still not used to this clean room phenomenon. I also hate this damp weather. Stabbing pains in my fingers = bad.

Okay guys, as study music, a mixed Jazz CD or Spice Girls?

Edit: Snippy, the fuzziest thing I can remember dreaming about is socks. Good enough?

1) As [livejournal.com profile] yubsie put it, your shippy things are coming. I wrote them out and then my computer went and crashed. I literally had to wait for the battery to run down to get the damn thing to do anything but be frozen. Windows is driving me crazy. Yes, you heard that right. I am annoyed by Windows. Mac users, begin your gloating, because I know it is coming.

2) [livejournal.com profile] yubsie, it is coming! I know I promised today, but I also promised some stuff to profs today that did not get done, so I figure its even, somehow.

3) [livejournal.com profile] peacerose, your beta has sort of hit the backburner the last few weeks as my body and emotions have been playing off of each other to create a rather unhealthy me. I'll probably ship over my broad impressions of the piece tommorow-ish and let you worry about those for now.

4) This is entirely less cool than my Patrick-Stewart-is-attractive-post. *sighs*

5) As a side note, Enterprise has been officially cancelled. As I said earlier, its a sad note for Star Trek to go out on, but it was an effort to keep the show alive - they just took it in the wrong direction and now the Trek legacy suffers. It was time for it to go.

I don't care what anyone says - Patrick Stewart is a sexy man.

I think I have succesfully ruined my appetite for dinner tonight. Too much food/candy.

In other news, its going to precipitate tommorow or tonight. My finger-joints (among others) say so. They might just be cold, but I don't think that's the problem.

Also, I am smitten by Tuesday and Wednesday. Someone pointed out its my weekend equivalent (For the life of me, I'm not sure who. If you are reading this, humblest apologies and hugs.), since I have Saturday rehearsals. I LOVE having the house to myself. I can play my strange, strange music loudly and the house moves at my pace and no one else's. It rather feels like home again, at least for a while.

I should go tidy the kitchen now, so that when everyone else arrives home, we may have clean things to make dinner with. Even if I did ruin my appetite. What, a girl's gotta eat?

I'm so going to be overweight when my finally metabolism slows down.

I had strange dreams about bad caf food last night. You'd think putting up with it in real life is bad enough. I also dreamt of a really, really bizzare LARP, which is likely only so bizzare because in the dream, it started out as an honest-to-god business meeting. Going back to the caf part of things, someone really needed to stop putting milk and vegetables in my tea. I get it, eat healthy. But not in my tea, please!

In other news, you know how if you play with a horoscope, you can generally get it to be meaningful? And you know how some days its just blatantly wrong? Yeah, I had one of those days yesterday. Behold, for my mocking amusement.

Consider the possibility of taking on more responsibility. Generally, you avoid that like the plague, but think again.

More work. That's what I need. Ha. Hahahahaha. Oooo, that's funny.
akeyoftime: (Default)
How about a visible post for a change?

I set up my livejournal all nicely so I can add a background image, but I'm too lazy/busy to look for one. If anyone has any suggestions or advice, please let me know. It's terribly boring to look at as is.

Thankee kindly.
