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.

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.

Okay, how are there people who don't think Derek is a complete and utter arse? Most of the other arse-ish characters are acknowledged as arses, but he isn't. Stupid Derek.

I swear, I'm stopping. There will be no more Grey's spam from me. Except for the part where there probably definitely will be.

Study for mid-sem has pretty much ground to a halt. Fic, however, is coming along quite well.

I need a naked night. I'm having a fat day, so I need a naked night. Only problem being L is home, and seems to have given up all hope of a life, so it'll just have to be an underwear night. Not quite as effective, but still good. The theory is that the more you avoid the mirror, the more you think there is something to avoid. Hence, naked nights. That, and I love being naked.
