just call me shameless

"I don't got no reasons, yet / There it is and there it was"

Wow, my October is filling up. I think I'm gonna end up getting Kieslowski from MLN rather than watching it at the MFA. Smithies: Is there good time in November for me to visit? (Sidenote: Massachusetts fan cons in November. Also, Common Rotation is at Club Passim -- Harvard Square -- Sat. Nov. 11.)


omg, I am such a stalker. It's possible I should be ashamed of this.

Eric sent me an e-mail forward and of course I had to check the full To list, and of course Adrien was on there, and it was a yahoo address and of course I googled it and found her fanworks page and lo a LiveJournal as well (though it's almost entirely fannish, and she does indeed do anime/manga -- i.e., fandoms I have no familiarity with).

This was written this morning. I think my sanity has returned, for the time being anyway.


I was looking at icon comms for the first time in a while and snagged this one from naughtyelf and was then browsing her journal and this entry... I'm sorry, I'll return when I finish being ded from sex.


I had already learned that IMDb has beautiful promo shots of the Heroes stars, but just today learned of the existence of heroes_icons [via TBQ].


In other news... the morning's mail included a flyer for "The Little Prince Teacher: Assessing Your Management Style." ("This workshop uses an original video interpretation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic story, The Little Prince, to help managers identify and assess their management style.")

FormerUnitHead ran through his schedule for the next few days (it includes "Flying to Chicago to help my daughter build a loft in her dorm room") and ended with "I'll be in mid-day Monday. Monday's a Jewish holiday, but I assume we'll be in full bloom here." Sorry, "full bloom" just amused me. [I also find myself thinking of the Nirvana song, which is just weird.]

"this is my skeleton / this is the skin it's in" [ani difranco: "shamless"]

This is my three-thousandth LJ entry. I've had this LJ almost exactly 4½ years (Oct. 1 would be exactly) and average more than 2 entries per day.

I never know what to say in these anniversary entries, but I always want to mark them.

I've been backtagging sporadically for months now, and it's been interesting reliving portions of my life -- since I put basically my entire life in my LJ.

My entries have ranged from very brief announcements of snow or schoolwork procrastination to massive posts of excerpts from political commentaries and writeups of tv shows/movies/books. I've chronicled over three years of college and more than a year post-college. Umpteen crushes, assorted fallings-out with friends. A transition into engagement with political issues and then a hiatus I'm still coming out from. I've also become addicted to LJ icons.

I still haven't mastered the balance of "writing for me" and "writing for an audience," am still stubbornly not locking any entries (except some private-locked ones) which will certainly come back to bite me, and am still learning how to tell stories.

CSI 7.02 "Built to Kill" (Part 2)

Collapse )

I swear I saw Douglas Petrie listed as one of the Producers or something in the opening credits.  That was very weird.  And my machine is continuing to completely fail to record CSI even though it says it's going to (and it successfully recorded my Monday night stuff) so I can't go back and check.  [I'm hoping that next week when the tv is off it will successfully record my CSI.]
