anime night

*insert string of obscenities here*

I am NOT allowed to be getting sick.

I wasn't feeling well last night, so i went to bed at a reasonable hour with a plan for this morning. Somehow my alarm clock didn't wake me up, so i woke up and thought "Wow, waking up on my own and before my alarm too boot" and then looked at the clock -- 10:30. I had succeeded in sleeping through my last econ class of the semester and my meeting with Estela. After a shower, i shot off an apologetic e-mail to Estela and am now off to the library to get Gibson's biography of Lorca. I'm going to the one-acts tonight (8pm, Hallie Flanagan, free) and other than that i need to do nothing but Spanish. And stop feeling vaguely ill.
you think you know...

"he's holding back, he's hiding -- but what i can't decide..."

sarrin, what was the music that played during the set changes between "The Lady of Larkspur Lotion" and "Medea"? It reminded me of the music that plays during the Simba-Scar battle in The Lion King, but i feel like it's some classic piece i should know.

Y'all should come to the English Department Party mañana por la noche (7-9pm, Dewey Common Room) but then you should leave to go to the one acts (Hallie Flanagan, 8pm, free). athene, i am eternally grateful to you for having introduced me to Christopher Durang. I thought i had tracked down and read all his stuff, but "Medea" didn't seem that familiar. All the plays were well-acted and such like, but the writing didn't strike me much (though some were better than others) but "Medea" was absolutely hysterical. I like that every one-act festival here seems to have one Christopher Durang piece.

Oh, and because someone wants to know, a review of Music for Elevators will have to wait until break, but i do like it, though it's hardly the best album ever created.

I wish i had the self-control to just focus on my schoolwork, maybe with a side of filtered LJ friendspage, because i keep wanting to smack people but i don't have the time (or even the energy, at the moment) to get into it, plus selfishly i wish i could buckle down and focus and get this work done. I am happy for those of my people who are happy and thinking good thoughts for those of you who aren't. Hopefully after December 19 i will be able to be more present.

"You should never take more than you give..."

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

Discussion with lilithchilde got me thinking about how secular [and some Christian] artists retell Christianity and/or think about God, as expressed in their work. This will likely turn into a mini-thesis over break.
Some say God is a lover, some say it's an endless void
And some say both, and some say She's angry
And some say just annoyed
But if God felt a hammer in the palm of His hand
Then God knows the way we feel
And then love lasts forever
Forever and for real
