O, you mean our thousand years of darkness has begun?

for those who are not familiar, plz look up Chuck Norris & his wife's Youtube video. Yes. I said Chuck Norris

Checking in!! This has been a really doozy of a week with 3 projects due within 2 weeks of each other. No complaints: it can be worse and I'm still very fortunate.

I hope I shake off the funk and the blues. It's easier to look at how people seem happy when in reality, I don't really know if they're genuinely happy or not. So... yeah. I hope bb poetic_pixie_13 will deliver with the awesome optimistic and self-love promoting comments! I always look forward to those when I'm feeling down.

I won a $100 Barnes & Noble gift card at work for correctly guessing the makeups of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

So my question to you

ONTD_P

is

WHAT BOOKS SHOULD I BUY?

Here were the things I've been kicking around:
-Gravity's Rainbow + Reader's Guide
-Ulysses + Reader's Guide
-Angela Carter books
- A book in a foreign language + language book (Either Borges+Spanish or Calvino+Italian)

I love Ulysses so much, so that'd be my recommendation.


Also, my Greek prof brought in Anne Carson's 'translation' of Antigone today (Antigo Nick) and OMG IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL, so that is also something I'd highly recommend.

hihi, _p....how was your friday?

for those wondering about my interview with the credit union, i think it went okay(? i never seem to be a good judge of if people like me or not). now i won't find out til after Turkey Day if i got chosen, but i'm still hopeful.

(and somehow i applied for two positions without knowing it, lol. so if they pick me, i could either be in the call center or a teller. i'm cool with either...in fact if given a choice and the pay was the same or whatever, i'd pick the call center. i could handle dealing with phones all day)

Hi bb! My friday went from neutral to slightly "meh."

I hope the interview went well! I'm sure you did better than you think. Keep positive!

I am happy!

I'm out of the wing woman place as my friend and her boy of choice like each other and stuffs. So yay! I don't have to ask him to do stuff with her anymore. (And, y'all, we're in college. I'm 31. Too old for that crap.)

I am going to celebrate with some hot chocolate!
kagehikario 17th-Nov-2012 09:23 pm (UTC)
Ahahahaha I feel you. Life is so much easier when my friends are in stable relationships or happy with their singleness (as opposed to the violent tempest middle ground)

I have a few poly friends who are the magic catch 22 of this; I never know when I shall be called upon to celebrate their fresh twitterpation XD

Wanna cookie? My Russian friend's mom found some yummy cookies and she sent them home. Along with homemade bread and sausage, but the sausage is long gone.

I need to get my shit in order, you guys. My apartment is messy, my sleep habits are atrocious, and I haven't worked out in forever. :-/
layweed 17th-Nov-2012 12:30 am (UTC)
I hear you. I need to finish packing my apartment, find an apartment to move to before I get kicked out of this one at the end of December (easier said than done 'cos I gots no jorbs) and get my life together.

I got a haircut! This is major news because I had hip length hair and I went kind of A-line bobish. I think the bangs need to be shorter, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

Also, I'm in the mood to swap tumblr URLs. Mine!

Today is really muggy, stormy and hot, which sort of reflects my mood - it's the second birthday that my best friend (who died of cancer at 17)isn't here for, and it's exactly a week till the second anniversary of his death. I hate remembering people on the day they died, so I'm wearing an orange t-shirt (his favourite colour) and I am going to spend the day doing some of his (and my) favourite things - playing tuba, playing D&D and going out with friends today, to remember him.

:(

A friend of mine from high school died in a motorcycle accident two years ago in January. He and his wife - who was in my graduating class - had three kids together and he was the nicest guy ever...such a gentle soul.

So I know how you feel. It's never easy. Hugs and fuzzy purple blankets, love.

This guy I met at comic con just loaned me a bunch of out of print queer comics to read. WHY MUST I STILL BE IN SCHOOL AND HAVE PAPERS DUE, I just want to sit and read comics all day.

Oh other awesome things:

My adagio teas got here within two days! The teas are: Ten, Captain Jack, Mycroft, and Harry Potter. I also got TARDIS tea and Moriar-tea as gifts for friends.

And yesterday my thesis proposal got accepted! So I'll be making my game-like application next semester and testing it on real live people!

On the sucky side, I got asked out but I already had plans that day. And Sunday I leave for home for Thanksgiving vacation, so...yeah. I am utterly, utterly hopeless when it comes to this stuff.
layweed 17th-Nov-2012 12:36 am (UTC)
Are they any good? I have their ingenuiTEA tea maker thing but I've never looked into their tea. Can't say I'm really a big fan of wittily named teas though...

so what are you reading this week, _p??

i'm working on the lovely Hillary's autobio. i gotta say Chelsea was one cute freaking baby and i can't believe college age Bill dug the hippie look, lmao.

OH MAN... My Goodreads list exploded.

I finished "The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel" main series + working on the side stories now. Got a bunch more books like "The Gift of Fear," "Cloud Atlas," among others. My tastes are scattered all over the place right now. Whatever grabs my attention, I go for but I generally favor the young adult fantasy, sci-fi, action genre
borderline_mary 17th-Nov-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
(First shenanigans post!)

I'm busy playing phone tag with my realtor and my loan officer since the offer my husband and I made on a house just got accepted. Waiting for my friends to get here so we can have Exalted.

Also I have Thursday and Friday off next week! I'm not sure if there's a family thing this year, but even if not, I won't miss being at work those two days, especially since I agreed to come in for half of Sunday.
