tell me a story [lizzieb]

Fefe came over Thursday afternoon, and updated me on my Fluffy, Muffy, Buffy, and Joanne future-life.  Joanne (the sheep) is trans.  Emma is a ho "flighty" (says Felicia).  She leaves me for Beatrice, then comes back, then leaves with Gary and Miltonia the plumbers.  Before Ohio, I went to Paris and worked as a maintenance worker (named Bob) while seeking out beaus for Felicia.  Yes this is up here because I told Felicia I would.

Fefe tells me Skarda's teaching a Da Vinci Code j-term course.  Must e-mail that woman.

Cryptic note that I expect to understand when I read this as an old entry: Grocery store insanity  My brother and I are efficiency addicts.

My brother was talking about how so few of the Red Sox who were part of the World Series winning team are still around.  This made me sad, like you win the Series, stick around one season, and then leave?  He said most of them weren't free agents, so they must have been traded, which makes me annoyed with the management.  I imagine samfeasor would know the details.

Later that night, my brother and I got distracted by country's movies ratings while looking up movies online.  [Now that I know what Rumor Has It is about I'm actually intrigued.  Though it's not like I'll spend money on it.  My Brokeback Mountain date got cancelled, though, so anyone who wants to use that as an excuse to come visit me....]  We tracked down an MPAA explanatory essay and also an explanation of other countries.  The stuff that France marks "U" (Universal)?  Crazy.

Later, we were looking at yearbooks, and wow so many people I haven't thought of in ages.  Part of me wants a five-year reunion to see where everyone's at, and part of me doesn't really wanna see them again, 'cause h.s. was awkward and it's not like things have gotten that much better.  (If there is a five-year reunion, however, I am so going, and I will be soliciting for volunteers to be my hottie date for the night.)

I had a weird dream that night.  Collapse )

So, Friday.

I got a haircut.  My mom says it makes me look older than I did before -- which is a blessing (last random person to guess my age was 8 years low, which is so not okay when one is 22 -- and I honestly have no need for it to happen decades from now).  Elouai dolls have heads way too big for their bodies, but hey.  (My hair so does not have that much body, though.)

Reading Shape magazine while waiting (I knew I should have brought a book) I felt like I was reading Playboy or something -- so many uber-toned women in sports bras and shorts.

Watched the first hour of WWE Smackdown with my dad.  Collapse )

The rage in my last entry reminded me that I miss discussing.  What I miss most about Smith is having people so close by, but a close second is discussions.  Like, I actually miss Inklings class -- 'cause at least there were a couple dozen people who had theoretically read the same text I had and had some shared background, and I had a floor at which to air my opinions, and worstcase scenario I would just rage at the prof after class.  (Ah, memories.)  This is also my biggest disappointment about LiveJournal -- that the way it's formatted it's so easy to have lengthy multi-person conversations complete with easy references (hyperlinks) to other sources, but we are all so busy and only have so much time and energy.  [There's also the issue of finding people with whom to discuss.  For tv one can find comms to discuss eps as they air, but if one is catching up on DVD -- or watching movies or reading books, or heaven forfend fic -- it's harder, and sometimes one is dissatisfied by the caliber in comms one does find.]

I feel like I've been such a slacker this break, and in some ways I have and in some ways I haven't.  I went through a slew of bookmarked fic to feedback/rec.  On the other hand, I have less than 200 words of FemGen written.  And it occurs to me that the huge amounts of sugar I've been consuming this week have probably been contributing to the whackedness of my sleep schedule.  This does mean that I still have my phone on when Cat calls with random post-work joy, though :)  ♥

The flist is resurrecting fandom opinion memes, which always makes me wanna write up manifestos of my opinions on ships/characters/arcs in all my fandoms.  So, um, anyone who wants my opinions on anything, just ask.

I hope you all had a good night and have a good year.

Some say that what you're doing when the new year begins is how you'll spend the rest of the year. So apparently I'll spend the year on my computer, with lots of LJ to catch up on, thinking perhaps I should go to bed and get some sleep, having just watched a whole lotta tv with my mom (and dad).

So my plan is to catch up on the flist and then go to bed. With many LJ entries to be made after some sleep.
