Oh hey! So, the night I signed up for the IBB, I decided that Arthur's real last name was Penn. It just seemed right. And then I watched "Bonnie & Clyde" the next day.

GUESS THE NAME OF THE DIRECTOR.

Not taking it back though. I'll just let it be a reference or something.


Also, OMG MY PHOTOBUCKET ACCOUNT IS BACK! \O/
I love you guys, and I know you love me, but please try to not make it go wacko again.

Classes start today. I only have one on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I woke up early anyway. My Broadcast Production class starts at 2, and I just got my (International Edition...oops) textbook in the mail! Exciting exciting.

the that's my favorite! meme
A FANFICTION PRAISE MEME


This could be interesting. Honestly, it you just wanted to leave concrit I would be fine with that since I would definitely like to know how to improve upon my writing.

I finished one chapter in "A Study in Scarlet" and needed to watch the first episode of Sherlock again. IT'S AN ADDICTION, GUYS, LIKE SHERLOCK TO NICOTINE PATCHES AND/OR SHAG.

I put all my homework off until the last minute again. But I mean, really, it's summer school. AOJWEFWE I JUST DON'T WANT TO WRITE ANYTHING ESSAYISH ANYMORE.

I am just so behind, and things are going to be getting any better. I have an exam on Thursday, a paper due Monday and then a final on Thursday. And that's just for one of my two classes. I go back to school that Saturday, and usually the next three to four days month is a collegiate blur of booze and pot and classes.

Gah.

So I haven't been able to write or do anything of the sort, I've barely been able to mod [livejournal.com profile] inceptionau (which, actually, doesn't seem to need much modding), and I'm afraid it's going to fail because even though it has 100 watchers (YAY!) there are only three non-mod posts. Drat. Hopefully the challenge will pick things up.

Also, can I mention that when a girl is walking really quickly through a university campus at night with a bunch of bags, it is not a good time to start chatting her up? I was passing this guy, and he was already a couple of feet behind me when he said hey, so I had to wheel around to make sure that I wasn't crazy and hearing voices or anything. My bus was leaving in four minutes across campus, and I told him such and started leaving, and he was like calling after me asking if there was another time. DUDE. I'M IN A RUSH AND I'M CLEARLY NOT INTERESTED. JUST DROP IT.

I should be interviewing people for an essay I have to write tomorrow. For a class about television, which I was REALLY excited about, it turned out to be kinda sucky. I think I'm just annoyed that I had to go back to the real world after my weekend of pure awesome. If anyone feels the need to share in my pain about the end of Sherlock, you may do so in the comments.

So now my journal looks ugly until next "month".

WAAAAAAAH.

BRB, deleting as much as I'm willing.

Update: I don't any new bandwidth until the 23rd. Drat.

So yesterday, after realizing I had slept until 6:30 PM and had missed class, I pretty much refused to engage with the rest of the world. A lot of it, I think, was because I had been up for 36 hours, and it still took me two hours to get to sleep. I guess it's a good thing that I have an appointment for next Saturday.

Today was slightly better. I watched an old Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney movie that was playing on TCM. The British stereotypes greatly annoyed me, but other than that it was fun. I'm still 90% convinced that the movie was about gay jockey love. I mean, seriously, all that time together and neither one made a move on Garland? Ridiculous. Garland and Rooney belong together, in every movie.

[livejournal.com profile] sixbitsforfact (is that okay? Can I use her name like that?) came over for happy hour, and then we walked into town. We stopped by Barnes & Noble and I picked up the LoTR trilogy. I already had Fellowship, but it was the version with Elijah on the cover and although I like it, I couldn't find the two other companions to that version, so I figure I can sell it or give it away. I feel a lot better having the trilogy being of the same print. If that makes sense? Anyway, it was large paperback and it only cost $30, which I think is decent considering that they look pretty nice. Then we went for ice cream, and then we walked home. Which means I haven't had dinner, but I know there's an extra pizza slice waiting for me downstairs, and some rice.

Wizard of Oz was waiting on TCM for me when I got home, as well as a movie that I spent about a year trying to track. It was finally on megaupload (and megavideo too!), and I'm really happy that I found it. It may or may not be another Mickey Rooney flick...I'm semi-obsessed with Andy Hardy.

I've almost to the end of Buffy and Angel seasons 1 and 4, but I decided to take a little break, since I feel like I've been watching too much TV on my computer. I've also decided to "not stay up all night" but I don't know how well that is going to take. I have to get up before 4 for an interview, so at least I won't sleep in all day.

There are way too many movies playing in DC for me to keep track of. As well as a bunch of plays for the DC Fringe Festival. Why was I not aware of all the amazing DC things before? Bethesda is boring as hell, I should be living in the city! But at least I've latched on now. I've always loved AFI, and in the next couple of days they're playing "Clue" and "Empire Strikes Back". I think I've missed out on seeing "Legend". Goodbye Tom Cruise on a unicorn! And then E Street is playing "Best Worst Movie" which I've been dying to see for years. There's no way I'm missing that.

Well, that seems to be it for now. I attempted a couple of poems the other day, but I haven't made any progress on that Glee fic. I think I need a plot. That seems to be a bit lacking. I haven't forgotten to clean up [livejournal.com profile] sitrow, I just...haven't done it yet. Oh well. Such is life.

Really?

Does anyone have The Sound of Music soundtrack? I'm not sure whether I should be ashamed that I'm asking for it, or ashamed that I don't have it already....

In any case, I just spent two precious hours of sleep downloading music that I found along the way in my search. I'm now very well stocked, but also very sleep deprived.

Then again, last night I had the WEIRDEST DREAM EVER. It had to do with X-Files and David Letterman.
