I spend so much time on livejournal that i should be spending being productive.

Find your emotion!

Yeah, i wasn’t gonna post quiz results here, but this seemed appropriate.

My friend Jonah came to visit today. Though a cold front is due this weekend, it is still being hot and humid, so we didn’t do much but hang out in my room and chat. I showed him around campus and he sat in on a really boring Intro to Lit Study class and we had dinner at Davis because normal dinner sounded sketchy, but mostly we just hung out and talked--which was minorly awkward because we’re only sort of in touch, but he said he had a good time and was glad he’d come and would like to come again, so that’s good.

I have a headache. I think it’s a combination of the heat/humidity and my not getting enough sleep. The fact that i’m not eating much (the heat and humidity has seriously cut my appetite) is probably not helping. I am drinking lots of water, though.

I got to be intelligent in my Milton class, twice. That was good.

NEVER read Wide Sargasso Sea
it's one of those "look at me - I'm taking someone else's character and writing my own novel with the groundwork already laid....oh yeah and my writing sucks"

I thought of the really bad fanfic i read recently. Yeah, i think i reference just about everything to something Joss-verse-related. I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing. I was talking to Jonah about Buffy and i mentioned how much i dislike bad fanfic. I was trying to explain what i dislike. I talked about people just imposing situations with no regard for the truth of the characters (oh my that was pretentious), then it occurred to me that by definition most any non-canon relationship is “out of character.” (And let’s not get started on the elaborate alternate universe disclaimers.) I came to the conclusion that if done well, i will accept just about anything. This deserves a more coherent and well-thought-out post, but it’s not happening.

I had a weird dream this morning. It was one of those dreams which you wake up from unsure as to whether it had really happened. All i can remember is that it involved reading a long post from zyll on Sharon’s friend page. This was extra weird because while i read Sharon’s friend page i only skim over zyll’s entries. Is my subconcious telling me that i am addicted to livejournal in a bad bad way?

JoeyD33011: so anything insanely new with you?
VelmasLizard: your interest/concern is cute.
but no, nothing.

JoeyD33011: something has to be going on somewhere
JoeyD33011: and I figure might as well be with you?
VelmasLizard: lol
VelmasLizard: No, i spent most of my day chilling with a friend who had come to visit b/c it was too hot and humid to go for a walk. I should be writing a paper that's due Thursday but i'm not. I have too much work to do and too little motivation.
VelmasLizard: Later in the week i'll have minor going-on-ness. Going to a play on Friday and one on Saturday. And a sort of panel letcure thing for a class tomorrow night.
VelmasLizard: But unless you want one-sided obsessing about Angel (which i don't even think i'm up for in my current overtired overheated state) there is basically nothing new and interesting in my life as of current.
JoeyD33011: haha
JoeyD33011: you are so great sometimes
VelmasLizard: :-) And i wasn't even trying that time.
