Today, i:

Did errands, including paying my fines at Forbes, even though they don't freeze your account until you hit $10 and so almost never even tell me i have fines when i'm checking stuff out. Lost a button on my coat and did not backtrack to search for it, which i am now regretting because it was the middle button.

Approve of the purple hair. Am lacking an Emma.

Survived my first day at work sans AJ. Nia had sorted the mail and started on the filing, and there were only a few quirky things, and i got a huge chunk of the filing done, and there weren't too many phone calls. Am still anxious about the next 8 days, though. (Marla, everytime i send something over to Advancement i think of you :) P.S. We should have lunch sometime)

Keep seeing talk about the new Phantom of the Opera movie and can't bring myself to care since the book story didn't grab me. Am a h0r and wanna see Elektra, though. (Any Valley folk wanna go with me? I'm thinking Saturday.)

Saw my first Marlon Brando film. Oh, the number of times i wanted to hit Marlon Brando's character over the head with a baseball bat. Not to mention the stupidities of various other characters. And the inhumanity at the end... grrr. I have now seen "I coulda been a contenda" in context, though, which makes it damn poignant.

Will post my BtVS Metamorphosis Challenge fic unbetaed if no one's gonna offer to beta it for me. Having read fox1013's rant, i feel kinda shitty about not ever having my stuff betaed, but there's also that part of me that never gets my papers edited either -- stubborn Yank or whathaveyou.

Am scoring a cap and gown muchas gracias a hedy.

The album version of "Closed for Renovations" does not include the Rose Bowl bit, which makes me sad.
