BOOK SHOPPING: IT MAKES ME HAPPY.

I spent way too much money today! Whee!

But got good books...so that's okay.

Anyway. I found the pretty editions of Daughter of the Blood and Queen of the Darkness but not, it would seem, Heir to the Shadows. Huh. Pity. I also god Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison, Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and some other guy, Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, Children of Men by PD James, Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman, The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold, Beyond the Pale by Mark Anthony and The Magician's Guild by Trudi Canavan.

And now I am well and truly broke, but very happy. And have an even longer list of books to read, yay!

I want to call someone but everyone is seeming to be conspicuously absent. Meh, absent people. Quit being that way. D:

Here I have definitively found the airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is 24 miles an hour. :D Stumble FTW.

Also, the Spanish Inquisition Videos are the best thing ever. Look them up on YouTube.

I find this more amusing than I should.

This site makes me giggle.

A really pointless but fun game.

Like this one.

This thing is really trippy.

And finally...Arsebook.

Made of win.




Your daily allowance of pointless links: completed.

...first of all, I think I'm over Bryan. Really. Seriously. I know.

*DOES A VICTORY DANCE*

So anyway, HOMECOMING ZOMGZ. We won, of course, but that wasn't the best part. The best part was arguing feminism with Rachel, chatting with Eugie, John, and Bryan in a "normal" (for us) way, and getting to stand right behind my new love interest. *glees* Oh and going down to Safeway, getting ice cream, and having Caro tell me that "He is so totally into you." Even if it's not true. It's nice to dream.

Homecoming dance tomorrow, update later.

I am in science class. Studying plant structure. Yes. It is so exciting.

Finished the test really early, so am about to go off and have a party with my 1st lunch buddies. Teehee. I feel smart. And badass. At the same time.

This post is pointless, yes.

But amusing. Isobadass.

So..family's coming for dinner tomorrow. I don't like this. I don't like family dinners. They stress me out, and I end up just sitting there silently and fleeing as soon as possible.

Yes, I know.

...I made more icons, though?

I think I need something to do. Good thing school's starting. And my schedule, for those of you who care! (and those of you who don't, but whatever.)

First Semester

Spanish 3
Ceramics 1
Geometry 1
Biology 1
Drawing 1
English

(these in order, of course. no teachers because I am paranoid, sort of.)

Second Semester

Spanish 4
Health
Geometry 2
Biology 2
Analyzing Modern World (I know.)
English

I have the teacher I wanted for English yay!

I now return you to your regularly scheduled flist, after putting icons behind a cut. They are pretty, again. Sorry.


I go now.

Finished Moonshine at about 2 am last night. It made me cry, but that might have been because I was obscenely tired and I cry obscenely easily at books. Started Neverwhere this morning, and thus far, am loving it. Very much.
I'm so made of fail. I'm joining DF as my...fifth BJT character. *cringe*

I'm going to crawl back to my corner and just give all of you a meme to atone. Srry.

Meanwhile, in life, I register for high school tomorrow. Eep! That should be interesting. Who knows, maybe I'll even see he whom my Cara has dubbed my 'fluffy haired lover.' Don't ask, please. XD

And I forgot how much I love the Rob Thurman series of Nightlife and Moonshine. So made of urban fantasy win. I done now.

MARCH:
Attractive personality. Sexy. Affectionate. Shy and reserved. Secretive. Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic. Loves peace and serenity. Sensitive to others. Loves to serve others. Easily angered. Trustworthy. Appreciative and returns kindness. Observant and assesses others. Revengeful. Loves to dream and fantasize. Loves traveling. Loves attention. Hasty decisions in choosing partners. Loves home decors. Musically talented. Loves special things. Moody.

That's interesting. Some of it was like, "NO WAY!" but other parts are so me. Like...the random revengeful and easily angered in there with all the sensitive, observant, kind, etc. That's me. All the way.

And the rest of the months:

Yes, it's me again. With more icons. To offer. They are pretty. And not silly, for once. At least, not really?

Credit is teh shiny, and I will love you forever if you would like to take one.

Or more.



And solely for the use of [profile] sizzlinfoo, unless she says otherwise:



Eehee. I go place now.
I so bored. I so bored I could do any number of reprehensible things. It probably has something to do with the fact that it is not a happy time right now. This not meaning that I am not currently happy. Just that the time isn't happy. Or something like that. Wow, I am making no sense. Screw sense. It's been a while since I had a good long ramble.

Anyway...I need stuff, or something. I'm horribly bored with everything in life. It pisses me right off. All I can say is, good thing I'm going to Soundview. Sheesh.

I wanna LARP with Mimi. It'll be so hardcore and awesomepants. No one will be able to match our hardcore and geekiness. Ever. It's just impossible. We're geeky enough on our own...but together...DOOM HAS COME UPON YOU AND YOUR ATTEMPTS TO BE GEEKIER. Okay, I'm weriously not making sense. Hahahahaha weriously. I swear I'm not high, though, this is just a stream of consciousness post. This is actually what I'm thinking, in this order. I have a bizarre mind, don't I? I don't know how I get from one thing to another. I just get there.

Anyway, so in [profile] desperatefans news, because since I don't have a life that's all I have to tell...Firekeeper gots dead, and not much else has happened. I ship Melisande/Hedda now, though. Tragically. And Melisande/Lanfear, but that's beside the point. I swear, it is. And there definitely isn't a half finished fic in my compy about them, why do you ask?

So here I am, on a trip through my own mind...feels kind of like floating through muck. An odd sensation. You're floating, but you don't move very much. And you get the feeling that if you put your paddle in there, you'll just get more stuck. I'll stop with the weird analogies now, though. I'm sure you're a little bit weirded out by them. They're just the slightest bit peculiar, you know. Unless you have equally peculiar thoughts? It's not even that late, barely even eleven. Eesh. I'm such a wimp. I don't think I'll ever pull an all nighter. I'll be doomed to fall asleep. Srrsly.

Who came up with that, anyway? Srrsly. It's not even just taking the vowels out of words. It's just weird. Really weird. I don't understand it.

Meanwhile, I'm going to...go place. Do something. Sleep, maybe, but that would be too easy. Far too easy. And that's just what they expect me to do. BWAHAHAHAHAHA. Spoilery goodness ahead, but I don't want to put it behind a cut.

CANON IS DEAD. LONG LIVE SNAPE.

And a snapshot from conversation:

minviendha: actually, a surprising amount of people ship it and everyone was like hahahaha, not canon. only then it was HAHAHAHAHA CANON IN YOUR FACE PEOPLE.
RodentoftheOpera: I KNOW!
RodentoftheOpera: Godfather from Elitist totally shipped them
RodentoftheOpera: And was always talking about it XD
RodentoftheOpera: And I was like, "... right."
RodentoftheOpera: And now
RodentoftheOpera: I am eating crow
RodentoftheOpera: I like it cooked
minviendha: eeehee. i prefer mine well done, or burnt to a crisp.

I'm clean. It is a wondrous feeling. I am actually clean for the first time in a week. We weeded all week, got sweaty and dirty, and had lots and lots of fun. I complained to Caroline a lot about Deathly Hallows. I have observed the fact that Caroline has a new friend, and am mildly interested in meeting you, [profile] catofnight.

Anyway, I am listening to music because I was suffering some song withdrawal. It was highly unpleasant. But I'll be fine. So here I am, clean and totally back from hiatus (for a week, anyways) and lovin' you all.

To celebrate my return, let's do one of those meme things. Original characters again.

1. Kashira

2. Iris

3. Keearh

4. Aliah

5. Taine

6. Deirdre

7. Viviane

8. Sparky (she’s not human and is sort of crazy. I mentioned her last time I did one of these.)

9. Jaeanorah (I know! Shush. She’s cool, though. And a misandrist.)

10. Sharlaine (She’s crazier than most of my characters)

11. Othello

12. Kamaria

13. Tess Daliante

14. Nadir (the horsey king of teenage angst. He’s Othello’s son – what did you expect?)

15. Natalya (shapeshifter. She’s a little bit of a bitch.)

This just wins. So hard.

 Anyway, I'm totally going to see OoTP today! *is excited* And I still haven't gotten around to those book reviews...

I want a muffin. I think I shall go eat one. But I want a meme, too, and so I think I shall go with the theme of puns and find that site that makes really bad puns based on your interests, because they are Horribly Amusing.


I love that thing, far too much.

It is way, way too hot here.

I can't do anything. I feel like toxic sludge.

Here's the photomanipulations, for anyone who's interested...

The Sharon wallpaper.
Keearh, in all his crazy glory.
Aliah, who is so not Winona Ryder OMG.
Deirdre, who is mysterious.
Taine, who is a painting (sorry.)
Viviane, my favorite. Picture, that is.
Aaaand the totally self promoting Movie Poster thing, because I'm cool like that.

Ha. I amuse myself.

Your Score: the Prankster

(42% dark, 34% spontaneous, 15% vulgar)

your humor style:
CLEAN | COMPLEX | LIGHT


Your humor has an intellectual, even conceptual slant to it. You're not pretentious, but you're not into what some would call 'low humor' either. You'll laugh at a good dirty joke, but you definitely prefer something clever to something moist.

You probably like well-thought-out pranks and/or spoofs and it's highly likely you've tried one of these things yourself. In a lot of ways, yours is the most entertaining type of humor because it's smart without being mean-spirited.

The [profile] desperatefans update, since it was fairly intense...

So, Karla was talking to Wendla (from Spring Awakening) and the conversation got to how they are both sort of sex neurotic. And Wendla mentioned being raped by Melchior, which pissed Karla right off (obviously) so she was raging about that. Ilse attempted to defend him, unsuccessfully.

At this point, Melchior strolled in, blissfully oblivious, followed shortly by Moritz. Karla didn't realize initially who he was, but the fact that Wendla was obviously lying about not knowing him sort of tipped her off. When she asked him his name and he introduced himself, she basically went batshit crazy and tried to kill him with witchfire, initially because of Wendla. However, after Wendla made it clear that she didn't want him dead (which didn't really get through to Karla at this point), it became sort of a blurry line in Karla's mind about Melchior and Uncle Hobart, and hence she got the idea that if she killed him it would be like killing Uncle Hobart, which would help her not be afraid anymore so she can enjoy a relationship, maybe. Unfortunately, Moritz, Ilse, and Wendla objected to this, and threatened all sorts of dire actions (still unsuccessfully). So at the point when it was sort of turning into a free for all brawl and Karla was menacing people with her snake tooth, Roger Mackenzie showed up and attempted to calm her down. After a lot of shouting, he got her attention (and that of everyone else, who were all sitting on Melchior at this point) and told her that essentially murder was wrong and that he (Melchior) had just made a mistake.

So then Karla went REALLY batshit crazy and started babbling on and on about how much she hates men and rapists and all their counterparts, and she's steadily getting more and more shaky and closer to tears. By the time anyone realizes that, Roger attempts to settle her down and practically gets smacked for his trouble. Karla yells at everyone to leave, pushes Ilse out of the room even as she tries to comfort her, and melts into a blubbering mess.

Morton comes in and helps her clean up a little, while Ilse and Wendla talked in the other room. Karla thinks that everyone is going to hate her and is more than a little scared of what happened. She wants Armand.

Aaaaand that's where we left off. So thank you for tolerating my extremely pointless description - ta, I have to go eat food.
That I truly love Desperate Fans. OMGChatDramaliekwhoa.

Ha, we make me laugh. And I squish Karla. *squishes*

Pointless Post for the Day: done, several times over.

It's me again.

I made a spiffin' Within Temptation background. Would make icons but for a shortage of ideas. Anyone want anything? Will post said background later.

By the way, might anyone be interested in making me a layout? Pretty please? I will do anything for you.

Karla is having her first sexual experience with Armand St. Just. It is cute. *flail*

Who are your five favorite characters?
Who are your five least favorite characters?
What are your five favorite pairings?
What are your five least favorite pairings?
Which character are you most like?
What is your deep, dark fandom secret?

Black Jewels Trilogy:
1. My favorite things are probably the books themselves, some of the fan art, the icons, the new cover art, and the one volume edition.
2. Probably Daemon/Lucivar shippers, the fic, the fact that there's only three, the lack of Karla, and the extreme shortage of Lucivar/Marian fluff.
3. Karla, Jaenelle, Daemon, Lucivar, Saetan. The hard part is listing just five. If I could continue, I would add Khardeen, Marian, Surreal (most of the time) and Wilhelmina to that list.
4. Surreal, sometimes, Dorothea, Kartane, Hekatah, etc.
5. Daemon/Jaenelle, Lucivar/Marian, Saetan/Sylvia, Khardeen/Morghann, Chaosti/Gabrielle. Canon all the way, doods!
6. Daemon/Lucivar, Jaenelle/Karla, any OCs, Daemon/Saetan (yes, I did see this once), and generally anything not listed above.
7. Karla, almost certainly.
8. I don't really have one. I'm too much of a purist.
