appalling_cynicism: (A house of cards)
Part way through Bones - I don't know what gender Tanaka is, and I don't care. Tanaka is hot! I would guess female though, but that may be the Takarazuka fan talking.

Wow, it was a really wussy Heroes ep this week. Wah! Poor me, I have the powers of a god but don't know who I am. Also, I don't like the Matt romance they seem to be hinting at.

I plan on escaping into crappy television for the next week. Life really sucks at the moment. Assessment may be over, but much worse things are happening and I can't really deal with it. I will deal, when my friends need me, but on my own I plan on pretending that absolutely nothing is wrong.

Bob leaving The Biggest Loser tonight was genuinely touching.

I was actually doing algebra in a lecture today to stave off boredom. Something is very wrong with the way my brain works, especially because I've actually become stupidly proud that I can still solve simultaneous equations. I had leftover worksheets from tutoring B yesterday. Poor girl is really struggling with negative numbers.

The girls got me recipe cards set for my birthday! I've spent the last half hour writing out all my mains recipes. I've noticed a trend - every last one of them requires at least a clove or garlic, most need two.

appalling_cynicism: (Hit you with a perfect spiral of truth)
Okay, so I am definitely saner tonight, there is much less freaking out. I am still lonely and the rest, but tolerably so. I talked to a couple of friends who inadvertently reminded me of how much they love me. Also, how much I love them. I have amazing friends who I can talk to for 45 minutes without discussing anything of importance. So yeah, back to relatively well-adjusted.

I am spending New Year eating brownies and watching Heroes. I may love this plan a bit. I don't care how tragic it may be.

[livejournal.com profile] flaaa_blah, according to my flatmate, your package has arrived. I haven't opened it yet (the whole not in Brissie thing), but thank you in advance! It is weirdly exciting to be going home to shiny, shiny mail.

Erm, [livejournal.com profile] broncobabe007 may have talked me into shipping John O./Stephen Colbert. This is bad, I think. This is also requiring Colbert!picspam. Just remember, intelligence and humour are fricking hot.

Seriously, I would marry him despite him actually being twice my age )

The picture with mini!Stephen freaks me out. It really truly does. Also, I imagine this is the last picspam of 2008. I'd say it is ending on a high.
14th-Dec-2008 12:46 am - Seriously, is it time to sacrafice a virgin to the gods of technology?
appalling_cynicism: (Do I exist?)
So, it is no secret that technology hates me. I know that sounds ridiculous, and it did start out as a joke, but I am truly starting to believe it. How else can I explain the death of my external hard drive and my laptop within a week of each other? I'm not sure whether the files can be rescued, but I am not optimistic. There is a horribly good chance that I've lost all my music, movies, television series, and documents. I am upset about that, but not overly so. The idea that I may have lost all my photos? Driven me to hopeless sobbing in my room. I have about 5 years worth of photos on those devices. Some are printed, most have probably been copied onto other peoples' computers, but there are still a fair few that are probably gone forever.

Also, I am ridiculously and painfully sunburnt.

There are good things happening in my life...I assume. I can't think of any right now, but there must be. Nothing is horribly wrong, it's just that nothing is quite right either. Losing my photos, sunburnt beyond recognition, extended family will be gone before Christmas, people I still considered friends treating me like nothing, sister in New Zealand doing all sorts of amazing things without me.

...I am baking tomorrow. Baking will alleviate my suffering.
12th-Oct-2008 02:16 am - Re-write is not going well
appalling_cynicism: (Words fail me)
I still have about 3000 words to write, and I really don't want to do it. I already did it once, dammit, I would rather bang my head against the wall than write it again.

So, instead, I am going to picspam the unspeakably stunning Gina Torres.

Why, hello, Gina Torres )
10th-Oct-2008 10:54 am - I'm guessing I'll be handing it in late...
appalling_cynicism: (A house of cards)
I opened the Word document that should contain my 3300 word assignment that is due today that I finished at about 4am. The document is now completely blank. I was so exhausted and caffeinated when I wrote that I honestly have no idea what I wrote, so reproducing it is going to be a bitch.

Kill me now?
10th-Sep-2008 01:26 am - Maybe I'll retcon it to be a day at the beach...
appalling_cynicism: (WTF world?!)
Bitches. Just...bitches.

I am pretending that today did not happen. I declare today to be non-canon.
