Oh, the schizophrenic weather.

It was raining when i got up this morning. 9:45am i see

on weather.com. On the way to my 10:30 class, the rain has begun to shift to snow. I get to class, and people are talking about predictions of 10 inches. The 10:56am "Physical Plant is declaring a snow emergency as of 11 a.m. today" e-mail says: Snowstorm - Predicted 4" - 6" with potential for 8" - 10"

And the last time heavy predictions were accurate was...? I did enjoy looking out my window as i worked on my homework, however, watching everything become increasingly crusted over with white.

The snow seems to have stopped some hours ago, giving us an accumulation of about an inch, though i hear it's bitch cold and it was certainly very windy for much of the day. And the kitchen staff left out breakfast supplies per usual. Mmm, lemon sherbet and pretzels.

Yes, talking about the weather and screencapping is way more fun than homework. (Hall party in/outside my room every night, what?) I have been good, though. I finished revising my seminar paper, and i did my MAT essays and outlined my Inklings presentation. Now all i have to do is my Inklings essay for Friday. Hot damn. (Oh, and finish my reading journal for Mere Christianity, but that's not a big deal. It makes me sad that i've been too tired to have functional thoughts -- i.e., contribute in class -- the whole time we've been doing this book. I do have an LJ entry in the works on some of it -- as well as some of what we talked about in RCFOS last week -- though.)

I heart Elaine. And our brothers are so similar, and i'm so adorably proud of my bro, and we chatted about study abroad and just much yayness.

The synposium in honor of Donfried's retirement looks really cool. (Saturday, April 2 - Neilson Browsing Room 3-6:15pm with reception following)

  • Rev. Raymond Collins (Catholic University) - "... that this letter be read to all of them" (1 Thessalonians 5:27)
  • Amy-Jill Levine ('78, Vanderbilt) - Agreeing to Disagree: Biblical Perspectives on Jewish-Christian Dialogue
  • Barry Moder (Smith) - Dim Undertones and Untrodden Ground
  • Kathy H. Eden ('74, Columbia) - The Bible's Place in an Academic Curriculum
  • Cynthia Schneider (Georgetown) - From the Da Vinci Code to DNA: Science Politics, and Religion in Popular Culture

I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well

I feel like there's some quip about "It should be a crime to look that good," but the closest my brain comes is the Harvey Danger song.

Some of my friends will appreciate this. "Righteous lust." Hee. (Which reminds me: Lilah and the seven deadly sins by jennyo = hottness.)

kita0610 started the Secret Fandom Shame meme. Um, do i have shame? Non-con and songfic maybe. I have a habit of being obnoxiously unashamed of my bad taste (See also: assorted movies) so really, these are shame only in that i know i'm not supposed to admit liking them. (And they're hardly bulletproof kinks -- I don't think i have any of those -- I just happen to like them sometimes.) There's also incest, but i feel like in my fandoms that is so not shameful.

We believe that beyond the simple bond of a love of music, there's something deeper between Giles and Oz, a maturity level beyond anyone else in the gang, and that they, despite what they've done in the past, have a single, simple, zen-like connection to the world and everything around it.

Giles and Oz are just there. And that mellow (sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric) atmosphere is one we want to swim in.

Because what could be cooler than that?
Okay, that makes me wonder why i was never particularly keen on Giles/Oz before.

I am the sonnet, never quickly thrilled;
Not prone to overstated gushing praise
Nor yet to seething rants and anger, filled
With overstretched opinions to rephrase;
But on the other hand, not fond of fools,
And thus, not fond of people, on the whole;
And holding to the sound and useful rules,
Not those that seek unjustified control.
I'm balanced, measured, sensible (at least,
I think I am, and usually I'm right);
And when more ostentatious types have ceased,
I'm still around, and doing, still, alright.
In short, I'm calm and rational and stable -
Or, well, I am, as much as I am able.
What Poetry Form Are You?

If i were not a Sonnet, i would be Heroic Couplets.

I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn't mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.
