AJ is seriously sparkly tonight. I suspect she fell into the glitter pot.

ETA Holy bloody hotness, Batman. They had some really gorgeous girls underneath the fat. Particularly Teresa. I kind of want to jump Teresa.

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.

I'd forgotten how much badfic you need to wade through when you get into a new fandom. It's not even that the dialogue is just ridiculously OOC, it actually seems like the writers have never had a conversation with another human being, nor have they read, watched, or heard any scripted dialogue ever.

I don't really know what to make of the current boat people debacle. The whole thing kind of reeks of 'Children Overboard' again. This is me reserving judgement until more information becomes available.

I have some new tutoring students! ESL guy never showed, which really sucks. I may have been horribly underqualified, but for $60 a week I would have learned. Instead,though, I got work I'm better suited to.

I'm kind of concerned that I am going to fail my last ever undergraduate mid-semester tomorrow. I know some of the material backwards and forwards and some of it not at all. I think my success or failure will kind of depend on which questions they ask.

For Christ's sake, models, learn to speak. Also, Jesus does not care that you are fat. Nor does Jesus care if you become America's Next Top Model. Jesus does not work that way. Also, why is rat fink model still there? I don't care that she is a kind of an awesome model, she is and always will be rat fink model.

Lasagne with friends is good for the soul. It is not, however, good for one's academic career. This semester is kicking my arse. I just can't make myself care about uni any more. I'm in my fifth year, I still have nothing to show for, and that is kind of incredibly de-motivating. The fear of graduating should set in soon, I'm sure, but at the moment I just want to do something new.

My flatmate is coming for visits this weekend. It will be nice to see her again, even though I'd rather do it under happier circumstances.
14th-Apr-2009 09:36 pm - I still haven't finished my essay
appalling_cynicism: (Words fail me)
I really don't have anything worth posting about, I just felt I should acknowledge that my LJ does exist. I've been distracting by things like my mummy and shopping. I haven't bought anything except a new dressing gown, but it's been fun wandering around. Oh, I also bought some new glasses frames. One pair is funky and black, the other is normal and bright purple.

I am not downloading anything until after my assignment and exam next week. I can not honestly say I'll get my assignment done if there is unwatched Grey's, Doctor Who, and Ashes to Ashes on my hard drive.
10th-Apr-2009 07:27 pm - Gratuitous icon post!
appalling_cynicism: (The geek shall inherit the earth.)
Oh look, I has a new icon. Also, I am still procrastinating. I seriously need a good kick up the bum. Or a pressing deadline. I do very good work when I have a pressing deadline. It often results in tears and distinctions. Mostly tears.

I have to say, though, this icon kind of makes me terribly sad the same way my Wash icon does. Tosh! Owen! *wibble*

I wish I had more icons.
10th-Apr-2009 04:30 pm - I have been watching Pushing Daises
appalling_cynicism: (Mmmm)
and now I feel like strawberry and orange pie.

Fantasising about food is not getting my essay written. The essay I have since realised is actually 2000 words, not 1500. Oops.

In honour of my procrastination, I offer Danny Bhoy picspam. The man is gorgeous, funny, and has a Scottish accent; what's not to love? )
10th-Apr-2009 09:11 am - I remember when I was a crazy kid with my Napster.
appalling_cynicism: (Hit you with a perfect spiral of truth)
I now want to read a pimp!Stephen fic. It was the giant gold 's' that burned the image into my brain.

I need to stop procrastinating. Seriously. It's probably not going to happen though. I need to write 1500 words by tomorrow morning.
5th-Apr-2009 04:59 pm - I need something to during breaks from essay writing!

Stealing a meme from [ profile] liquid_courage.
Pick one of my icons here and I'll write you a drabble based on said icon. Include pairing if you like. If you choose a non-fannish icon, tell me what character/fandom you'd like it to apply to.

I offer recs! Not many, just a couple of my favourite West Wing fics. As an advanced warning, they are all Josh/Sam. Okay, one of them is probably more gen than anything else, it's pre-slash if you happen to ship it.

You and Me of the 10 000 Wars by Violet and Ellen M - PG13 - "You're asking the wrong person," he says. "Josh has never been in love with me." As soon as the words are out he sits up in his chair, so fast that it squeaks. He's shocked at the bitter edge of his own words.

♥ I think this may be a stock rec for this fandom. It is a lovely story about how Sam deals with Amy and Josh, with a massive heaping of Ainsley for good measure. I love Ainsley, especially in this.

Twelve Days before the World Changed by [ profile] raihon - In the summer of 1988, Sam sublets a room in Josh's house and thus begins an interesting friendship.

♥ Amazing, plotty, gritty fic set in a world that is changing rapidly. As the author puts it, it is a love song to 1989.

Sentimental Fever by Seana Renay - PG - "You know how everyone thinks you're the smart one?" he asked. "We should get them to stop thinking that."

♥ Sweet! Absolutely adorable story about the boys saying 'I love you' for the first time and how Sam is an idiot.

And now for something completely different.

Double Ironed by [ profile] simmyschtuff - House - R - He died last Christmas.

♥ In case the summary isn't enough of a warning, there is character death in this fic. Also, hints of House/Wilson in amongst the House/Chase goodness. It is more a lovely character study of how House deals with a puzzle he can't solve. It is light, and funny, and tragic.
