appalling_cynicism: (Theatre is better when girl on girl)
I got an e-mail from C today. It was a real kick in the stomach, it just reminded me how very much I miss her. I miss her a lot.

I watched the ANZAC Test with my cousin tonight. It was actually a lot of fun. We had fish and ships, and talked about how we wished people were more open-minded. I'm the first to admit that I don't know my extended family that well, so it was a really nice surprise. Not that I thought she was closed-minded, I just didn't really expect what I found out tonight. She is actually thinking about moving into the empty room, which I think would be nice.

I was told I blaspheme too much today. Seriously. I'd beg to differ on that. Swear too much, maybe, but blasphemy? I do blaspheme, but creatively rather than frequently. I have a policy, if it would make my Catholic grandmother laugh rather than look disapproving, it is acceptable. Yeah, she is a good Catholic, but not a great one.

I have done my last undergraduate mid-semester! This is awesome!

I need a life. I want a life. Having approximately one quarter the workload of any of your friends does not lend itself to spending time with them. They are all busy and I am just bored.

C has got me well trained. I spent the whole evening looking out for Haya-chan. Credit where credit is due, Haya-chan is one of the most ridiculously adorable Siennes out there. C still seems convinced I'm going to be a Doi-chan fangirl though. Tonight, I really wish I had Rose of Versailles (Oscar and Andre), Scarlet Pimpernel, or Phoenix Wright. Admittedly, I haven't seen the last one, but I really want to. Actually, the BeruBara anime would be nice as well. Okay so the list could keep going - "A"-rex, The Second Life, El Halcon, the Ceasar one who's name escapes me right now. I'm going to stop now. Why must Takarazuka stuff be so expensive? Also, why must C have never followed through on her promises to keep burning things for me?

Why isn't J on Skype? I want someone to talk to.

I may have to start on the M*A*S*H DVDs. Trapper fix ahead!

appalling_cynicism: (A house of cards)
Well, that's the end of that dream, I guess. What the hell I am going to do now, well, that's anyone's guess.

You'd think after all these years, my friends would have some idea of how to cope with me when I'm devastated. Apparently, no. Apparently, they completely fail at common decency sometimes. Apparently, their idea of how to make me feel better first involved me cooking dinner for the five of us, then when I objected changing to they'll cook dinner but they will invite someone I absolutely can't stand. That does not seem to me like the best plan, but hell, what do I know? I am seriously considering just making an excuse, staying home, and watching sad movies.

I am two weeks behind in my Heroes viewing because I don't really have enough download quota left to waste it on TV shows. This makes me sad, because it has actually been good again. Admittedly, it has been about 3 episodes, but that is more consistently good eps than they've pulled off in a while. In honour of this, and because I've been binging on it, I offer MattMo recs. While I have quite a few ships on the show, it is the only one I actually read fic for.

Recs, ahoy! )
21st-Feb-2009 12:13 am - I am back from Vanuatu!
appalling_cynicism: (Never outgrow jumping in puddles)
I love the rain. I love the way it smells. I love the way it sounds. I love the way it makes me feel, like maybe things can just be washed clean. Also, I never outgrew squishing mud between my toes.

Vanuatu was amazing, though it may have reminded me how completely socially inadequate I am. Meeting new people when my sister is around never ends well. I know how horrible this sounds, but these were people who should have liked me better. They were interested in politics and Britcoms and didn't know every song in the Top 40. I am, however, so ridiculously awkward that my bubbly but vapid younger sibling attracts all the affection. Yes, I am jealous. My sister is perfectly lovely, she just makes me feel, well, hopeless. The bright side is that the snorkelling was mind blowingly good. I got to see a moray eel, the one type of eel that doesn't creep me out.

I think Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice should crossover more often, I really truly do. Mmmm, twice the Kate Walsh.

So, I ended up being talked into going to a party for a bit. It was nice insofar as I got to catch up with someone I hadn't seen in a while. Now I'm back to Heroes and loving Hiro some more. Also, Ando the adorable leach. They are just so cute as heterosexual life partners with their "This is how we role." I'd forgotten how much the Niki/Ikin plot line seemed to drag. Ali Larter is smoking hot though. As is Adrian Pasdar. Nathan is one of my favourites on the show. He is not stupid and ridiculously idealistic. Admittedly, he may go slightly too far in the other direction, but when all is said and done he comes through for those he loves.

I really don't want an 8 hour bus trip tomorrow.
