As usual, I've managed to completely lose the week. I have no idea how it's almost Friday. Yesterday was Monday! I swear it was! It feels like suddenly days are only made up of ten hours - oh wait, maybe that's because I keep passing out at ridiculously early times of night! Yeah, I'm a bundle of fun.

Oh, and speaking of fun - now that I've let the cat of my uncoolness out of the bag, woops - we're having a fangirl bash on August 15th and whoever wants to come is invited! If you can get into Pittsburgh, we'll entertain you and feed you (hopefully! We, er, still haven't decided what we're going to do about that!) and make you alcoholic beverages should you choose to indulge.

It's gonna be pretty freaking awesome, let me tell you.

Anyway. Today on the bus I was listening to my iPod to drown out the screaming child sitting across from me and wondering: if you could have anyone's singing voice - alive, dead, female, male - whose would it be? I'm curious!

unamaga: i wouldn't even know how to mla that
kashmir1: me either, actually
kashmir1: mla it. that sounds personal
kashmir1: oh yeah baby, cite me, CITE ME
unamaga: CITE ME SO HARD I CAN TASTE YOUR COMMAS
kashmir1: ahahah omg you're lucky i wasn't drinking just now

So, this is probably the worst week I have had in a long time. I've managed to (so far): have a spectacularly emotional break down in the middle of the cafeteria; forget half my uniform for two days running; break my calculator half an hour before a conversions test in Breads; nearly get hit by the bus for the third day in a row while trying to flag it down; unwittingly offend half the people that I talk to on a regular basis; get stuck with the slowest goddamn girl in Breads kitchen, who proceeded to slowly knock half my ingredients off the table one by one and then try to steal my brioche couronne even though my name was CLEARLY right there.

There is more! I could go on!

Blah. At least I have a Julie to look forward to tomorrow, and a weekend of picnics and snuggles in my near future. God knows if I don't get some quality snuggles in the next few days I'll probably end up eating a pound of chocolate and terrifying the neighbors with primal scream therapy.

Anyway, here's that meme Darsy tagged me for a few days ago:

1). List your favorite female characters.
2). Explain why you like them or what makes them particularly awesome.
3). Post a picture and your favorite quote.
4). Tag five people to do the same.




Only four, but they're good! )

I can't manage anymore right now because I have class in a couple minutes and don't anticipate having the time later on (OH GOD PROJECTS WHY), but Teyla would totally be on there with extra hearts, and so would Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

There are about seven gnats in my room right now. They are increasingly making me want to tear my hair out.

Speaking of! My new chef for Breads Kitchen looks like Jewel Staite. I swear to god I walked into lab and nearly had a heart attack because OH MY GOD. They even have the same nose and mouth, the apple-round cheeks and long neck, and she's really thin and all legs and. Guys, you have no idea how WEIRD it is to be reprimanded by Jewel Staite for wearing a hair band around your wrist (which will inevitably lead to me putting my hand in a mixer, the mixer paddle getting caught on my hair tie and RIPPING MY ARM OFF - yes, she really did say this to me). Oh, oh, and that's the other thing: she's MEAN! She said we can't hum or whistle or sing or make jokes or do anything of the sort during class time, and if she sees or hears us being silly, we'll be docked points on our Professionalism grade.

ALSO SHE MADE US DO MATH FOR AN HOUR. D:

I don't know how I'm going to survive 28 days of a sour, fun-smooshing Jewel Staite look-alike. It's like I'm in a TIME WARP. Chocolate tastes bad, grass is purple, seagulls shit diamonds, and Jewel Staite hates happiness.

I have emerged from my first module unscathed! In fact, I am now the proud owner of two A's, a cracking waffle recipe, all of my limbs and phalanges, and a super fabulous girlfriend with whom I'm going on a fancifully romantic road trip on Friday. \o/ Laaaa! If I knew how to jig, man, I'd be all over that shit, but since I can't, I'm just gonna wiggle my hips a little and call it a day.

Picture! )

\o/ \o/ \o/

I could just victory arms all over this damn post, you guys. :D

In more internet-related news, I've finally found my flist again and started slogging through the bajillion and three posts I've been gone for. I missed you all so much! I felt so shallow and out of touch without LJ to turn to! Everyone's okay, right? I haven't gotten back that far yet, but I want to be spoiled if this is a sad fic and someone's gone or doing badly. Talk to meeeee.

Today I:

- wound up with a half inch piece of steel wool embedded in my knuckle. I don't know how I managed it, but dear god, never ever do that to yourself. *cradles hand*
- read really terrible porn during break between classes. No one should use the word "organ" to refer to a penis, I'm sorry, especially when said penis is being "played expertly" by someone. I nearly got tossed out of the library for excessive sporfle-age.
- made grits and was forced to taste them at least three times to make sure they were cheesy enough. IT WAS LIKE LIVING A NIGHTMARE.
- got a package from my dad which contained Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, which I fully intend to try and coerce [profile] ladycat777 into watching with me before the hockey game tonight. Would be best end to today, seriously. My kitchen lab group spent half the session singing free credit report dot com commercial songs and Putting On The Ritz and then one of them got God Gave Rock And Roll To You stuck in my head.


Party on, dudes!

Oh, that actually reminds me! I've been watching Star Trek episodes and I'm almost up to the movies, though I still have a few episodes to go. Would anyone want to watch some of them with me? This is my first time! I feel very lost and slightly befuddled with adoration!

Today was our first day of knife skills and I still have all my fingers. Not hacking off a limb: pretty much the highlight of my day. Which, when I think about it, is really just sad.

*flops discontentedly*

I could use a hug or twenty.
unamaga: (your face needs mah kisses)
Now that I have time to actually sort of breathe: the first week of school was a success! And by success I mean I haven't sliced my fingers off yet. I still look pretty ridiculous in my uniform and I keep getting stared at on the bus, but that's not all that new, really, and actually having kids turn around in their seats or trip over their own feet trying to look at "the funny costumes, mommy, look!" is fairly amusing.

But, I don't know! Nothing really too exciting to report, since we haven't been allowed to do much more than make chopping motions yet. Oh! Although now I have a really vivid idea of how Rodney McKay would teach a Culinary Foundations class, since I swear one of the chefs secretly is him, going around and yelling at people to correct their stance or RISK LOSING THEIR LIMBS, HAVE YOU NEVER HELD A KNIFE BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE. I imagine John Sheppard would be his most insolent student and Rodney would daily tear his hair out over John's incorrectly tied neckerchief and scruffy cheeks and daredevil knife skills.



Strike a pose.

Other things of interest: 1) I get a [personal profile] kashmir1 today and hopefully she will be willing to cuddle me a little because my god it has been a long week; 2) I'm building myself a little garden in the backyard and it will hopefully grow things! which may or may not be green! I'm kind of excited, since I've never done a proper ground garden before; 3) I have no fannish shows to watch anymore! Supernatural is over, SGA is gone, Merlin hasn't started up yet, and Glee is just way too much contact embarrassment in one hour to watch more than once: what are you all watching?; 4) I have [personal profile] pennyplainknits' awesome merlin big bang and you don't, nyah, nyah.

My first official post from Pittsburgh!

It's been an exciting, if somewhat terrifying and nerve-wracking, first week. So far I have: turned my ankle on a loose grate in our dining room, worked an electric stove and set two smoke alarms off, road the bus downtown for the first time and gotten yelled at for presenting my monthly pass when I got on instead of when I got off, and had to rescue a tiny bird that mistakenly flew into our living room and stunned itself. Also I had an encounter with a millipede, but we won't dwell on that because [personal profile] kashmir1 and [profile] ladycat777 might make fun of my girlish shrieks.

To add to the mocking, yesterday I went downtown and picked up my uniform from the school store, and it turns out that the sizes are more geared towards men. The first size I tried on was too tight around my hips and a little snug around my breasts, but now I have a size larger and it's like playing dress up with Daddy's clothes. I look like this dude with an added beannie hat:



Andrea took pictures to commemorate the occasion, because she is cruel and treacherous. No you can't have them.

So what's been going on with you guys while I was busy rearranging furniture and having mild freak outs? Anything fun and interesting and porny? :D

I can't stand the Transmogrified borders; I don't know why, some rage just comes upon me when I see them. So here's my borderless contribution to the cause - pretty simple, clean, easily customizable, and (mostly) fluid.

Instructions:
1) Go to Customize and choose Transmogrified
2) Copy the code from the box below and paste it into the Custom CSS box
3) Make sure "Use Layout's Stylesheet" is checked
4) Save, and you're done!

Notes:
- Right now, I'm hosting the round navigation image on my livejournal scrapbook, but I can't guarantee I'll have a paid account forever, so if you'd like to host it yourself, here it is (I promise it's actually there, it's just white! Highlight the space if you need to and you'll see it). Replace the old URL under .module-section-one ul with yours.
- The two main colors in this layout are #73A3CC (the darker blue of the links and around the userpics) and #AAD0F1 (the main light blue). Your best bet for changing colors is to put the code into Notepad and do a sweeping find & replace with your hex numbers of choice.
- If you add a header image (for example, see my dw journal), you'll probably have to play with the padding under #header to make it fit.
ETA: In order for the navigation links to fit, you'll have to shorten "Recent Entries" by going to your customization page and finding it under the Text tab.
ETA2: If anyone wants the userinfo under the userpic on their reading page, add this code to your Custom CSS. It's not perfect, but it can pass:

span.poster {width: 120px; margin-top: 50px; padding: 0; float: right; text-align: center;}


Otherwise, there shouldn't be any problems. If you come across a snag, please comment and I'll try to help. :D

Dear Livejournal,

Last night I slept on the floor; it was like summer camp, except colder and more painful. I may only be in my twenties, but wood floors are good for no one's joints, let me tell you.

As you can probably guess, I've been packing. Which incidentally is very close spelling-wise to the word "panicking".


Chaaaooooossss

About a week ago, I discovered that my dial really did have an 11 on it when my sister found a studio apartment and my mother revealed she was looking to move to an apartment in New Jersey where she would have very little storage - all of which basically means that I either have to take things with me or throw them out all together. D: Anyone want to give some books a good home? I have about three boxes of British Lit textbooks and fiction and random library sale finds, not to mention bizarre old medical and history texts that are in no way relevant but still funny to look at. If anyone's interested, email me your address and I'll send out a book bouquet before I leave! Pleaaase!

Other concerns include:

1) Whether or not the bed will stay on the car roof oh shit
2) Do I have enough music that my father will not throw out the window to last the seven hour drive
3) We will stop for Denny's on the way down and the car with all of my worldly possessions in it will be stolen jfoaijkgmaf
4) JESUS CHRIST FOUR DAYS !!!!
5) [personal profile] ladycat will spontaneously decide she hates me, although spontaneously may not be the right word because I've warned her that I really do suck BUT WHAT IF

In general, the panic has set in. My hair is standing up straight in sections, my eyes are crazy like Michele Bachmann's, and I can't feel my toe because I just stubbed it on the coffee table. AHHHHHHHHHHH.

Frantically yours,
Mel

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] aesc for the Eight Days of Happy meme an age ago. I refuse to fail at it this time! *resolve face*

Day One

I uploaded this for Aitches the other day and realized that everyone who might be having a rough day or a rough week or a rough year should be in possession of this movie. It's the ultimate comfort movie, long and fun and gorgeous and easy to curl up around in the afternoon while you nosh on a cookie. It's not made just for kids, it's made for everyone, and believe me when I say you will finish this movie and feel warm.

Note: The file size might seem a little bit daunting, but that's because you can watch in either Japanese or an English dub. Rejoin with HJ-split and enjoy. :D

I imagine this meme has already made the rounds, so I'm not tagging anyone, but if you'd like to do this, consider yourself poked. Oh! And another note: I suddenly have a Dreamwidth account, thanks to my lovely [livejournal.com profile] villainny! Unsurprisingly, I'm unamaga over there too - so original! still apparently hard to spell! Come friend me if you'd like; I'm still getting used to all the complications of having a "circle" instead of friends, and only being allowed six userpics after having over a hundred does lead me to make sad duck faces, but it's pretty nice over there.

hmm

I have a lot of things to say and very little brain power with which to say them! Thus, I use bullet points.

  • I've been incredibly absent from the internet lately, I know. I'm not sure when it happened, but somehow I've acquired this aversion to my computer and started finding all different excuses to be away from it. This is not like me! In an attempt to get back into things, because being away from my flist makes me sad, my twitter account has been resurrected. Hopefully it'll keep me more in touch with people, and if I am an utter idiot and forget to do face_of_joe people can tweet angrily at me until I remember.

  • Today is hereby declared Post-A-Puppy Day. Because I say so.


    This puppy loves you unconditionally.

  • [livejournal.com profile] ladycat777 tagged me ages ago for this. I'm not tagging anyone else, because I'm pretty sure everyone's already seen this going around, but if you want to do it consider yourself poked. )
unamaga: (but WHY is the porn gone?)
I don't know if this is going around, or if Julie and I are just being targeted because we're secret terr'ists, but if your xcolibur or dystopia view of LJ has mysteriously been replaced with vertigo, there is a sneaky back door you can take to get your beloved viewing option back.

Append &usescheme=xcolibur or &usescheme=dystopia to the end of your URL and it sort of tricks LJ into believing you already have that option checked. Make sure you save, and voila: insta-relief! I've tried it for both dystopia and xcolibur, and there's been no sign of reverting back to vertigo yet, even after some off-site page hopping. I live in hope. *crosses fingers*

Has anyone heard anything about LJ getting rid of these skins altogether? None of the news comms I poked around in have said anything about it, so it might just be a bug - please let it just be a bug!
unamaga: (HOUSTON WE HAVE NO CATNIP)
These are the things I am thinking about at 5:30 AM.

  1. After last night, my brain has decided that congress would make an excellent sitcom. No, okay, stay with me here. Just imagine all the tomfoolery and DUIs and petty grudges with a laugh track. The titles would be set to a politicized version of Where Everybody Knows Your Name, possibly called Where Everybody Knows You Fuck Young Pages. Senator Mike Crapo would affectionately be the butt of every joke. Imagine the glory.

  2. Why was there flowing lava behind Bobby Jindal during his response speech? I suspect that alone would make an incredible episode: S01E08 THE ONE WITH THE LAVA, in which Jindal is somehow stranded on a Hawaiian Island and only the extremely rugged Anderson Cooper stands between him and an untimely molten death. B-plot: Nancy Pelosi discovers Jolt Energy drinks.

  3. I've had far too much tea this evening and been left to my own devices for far too long because I'm looking up tea leaf meanings on google. How does one differentiate a coin from a circle from a ball when you're reading tea leaves? And how exactly would they manage to convey that they are a glow? Not aglow - I'd be slightly concerned if my tea was literally exuding light - but glow as a noun. This confuses me. And the only thing I can find in my tea leaves is a clump of leaves that looks remarkably like an amoeba.

  4. What would Castiel look like with a pornstache? Furthermore, what would Castiel look like with a pornstache while wearing a members only jacket?

Good morning. :D
unamaga: (*smooch*)


Happy Valentine's Day, flist! I know not everyone cares, but I love any excuse to smother people with hugs and post pictures of adorable sleepy animals. *opens arms* C'mere, you.

yeah.

I walked down to the post office this afternoon to mail off a few packages (and before you all yell at me, I had my inhaler, a bottle of water, and a cellphone - I was prepared!), since apparently no one was planning to drive me within the next decade and the cookies would spoil. It's windy out, but not too terrible, so I dawdled on the way back: I had the empty Whole Foods bag I'd used to carry the packages, I was grooving to some BOC on my iPod, and it seemed like a good idea to stop and pick up a bit of the litter on the sidewalk as I was passing by it. This isn't really out of character for me, but apparently no one ever told me that it is tragically dorkish.

A group of passing high school kids took it upon themselves to inform me of this.

I know - douches, in my town? Shock! But, what the hell? When did it become high-school-cool to rag on a random stranger for picking up litter? I'm not really offended. Partially because they were all kind of puny and wearing day-glo, but mostly because I'm just plain baffled.

Anyway, here's today's vocabulary lesson. Your homework is to somehow base a drabble around a word of your choosing. For my amusement. :)

apodyopsis
sphallolalia
callipygean
lygerastia
cheiloproclitic
basorexia
krukolibidinous
capernoited
The act of mentally undressing someone
Flirtatious talk that leads nowhere
Having well-shaped buttocks
The condition of one who is only amorous when the lights are out
Being attracted to a person's lips
An overwhelming desire to neck or kiss
The act of staring at someone's crotch
Slightly intoxicated or tipsy
unamaga: (oh honestly)
Right now my house is like Grand Central Station. Where do all of these people come from? It's like half the population of New York State has cycled through in the past half hour. This is especially annoying because I can't use the kitchen during the open house, which means I haven't yet eaten, which means I haven't yet taken my pills, which means I am miserable and my head and chest hurt and I can't get the terrible taste of the nasal spray out of my mouth. PITY ME.

But, really, at least now I've been properly diagnosed (bronchitis and a sinus infection, what), at least there's a chance of being one hundred percent before, um, August. I'm excited! Let's have a hug'n'love fest, because I need it like woah.


*surprise flist smish!*
unamaga: (time may change me)
I swear I'm not dead or anything. I've been poked by a few needles and sneezed through two boxes of tissues and become far too emotionally invested in our stock of Sudafed, but I'm otherwise okay. So let's play catch-up! How've you all been? What incredible romance and intrigue have I missed? I've been a terrible LJ friend and also incredibly bored (have you noticed that Spike only plays CSI marathons when you have other things to watch? I sense a deep evil in that station), feel free to babble at me. Also:

Drop me a comment, and I'll tell you the first thing that comes into my mind when I think of you, whether it makes sense or not.

Or, if you are afraid I will answer with NINJA MONKIES!!!, make some icon requests! :D
