01. Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
02. NO CAPTIONS! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
03. They must ALREADY be on your hard drive -- no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
04. You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like

Meme. )
dramaturgy: ([Fringe] Strawberry Death.)
Tennessee was fun. I'm glad I got to go with [livejournal.com profile] thinkatory and meet [livejournal.com profile] raven22 (again) and [livejournal.com profile] illegal_midget (for the first time!). Court is easily one of the most hilarious people I know and that is so much better in person. Especially when there is Skins and moonshine to be had. Despite our missed connection on the way back and therefore getting back to Milwaukee a little later than expected, it was a good trip with relatively few problems.

Oh my lord last day of the music meme! Hurrah! I suck at this, this should have been over a week ago. I don't know if I'm going to do another one right away again. There's a SPN one making the rounds, and a Harry Potter one, as well as a general TV and a Shakespeare one. Any opinion, flisties?

The main thing is that I have assignments on my syllabus and am going to send in my textbook requisition form today. \o/ Yay. So here's the last meme.

Day 30 - Your favourite song at this time last year
This time last year I was... well, in much the same state as I am now, although last year when I was freaking out it was over grad school and mostly where was I going to live while I was there. Now I am freaking out about whether or not I'm going to be an effective teacher.

Anyway. I got really into the band Trading Yesterday and their CD "More Than This" because someone had made a Castiel fanvid out of this song, and I heard it so hard. Like the couple times I have managed to actually RP Cas with someone besides Kitty, it has been journal titles material. The fanvid sadly no longer seems to be available, but you can listen to this awesome song, called "Revolution":

That's really all I have to say about that.

List. OMG it's done!! )

I think this probably depends on what I copy and paste into the box, and I'm not sure if this is a compliment or not, but.

I write like

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

dramaturgy: ([AI] I amount to nothing.)
Last week Kitty was with me and we had fun. I am still in Doctor Who finale afterglow from Saturday, and in my Damn My Friends Are Home Now slump as well as my Try Not To Panic About Teaching mindset with nothing to distract me.

What results is me feeling very confused and a little nauseous. So I'm going to do a 30 day meme. Ang was doing this one, and it's music! Who doesn't love music? I love music.

Day 01 - Your favourite song

I listen to this one A LOT, but of course you have your favorite songs of the moment and your favorites ever. That one was the former, and this is the latter:

Whenever this meme comes around I never seem to have any WIPs but now I have a bunch, so.

Post a sentence (or paragraph) or two from as many of your WIPs as you want, with no explanation attached.

Supernatural, ASOIAF that went nowhere fast, Dollhouse... yeah that's it. )
dramaturgy: ([DH] And when Topher isn't drunk enough.)
Well now I am NICE AND AWAKE from my NICE COLD SHOWER. I seriously hope whoever lives here next has better luck getting shit fixed than I do.

I want to do a meme. I want to do that picture meme... people ask you to take pictures of certain aspects of your life, or places, or what have you. So ask me to take a picture of something in my life right now and if I am still feeling it in the morning, we will get back to you.
dramaturgy: ([HP] Luna.)
My parents went to a party at a friend's, my brother went off with his own friends to play video games, my sister is still helping Cat move her stuff to Davenport, so it is me, the cats, and a lot of Mike's.

So I'll do a meme to distract from the fact that it is me and Kitty on the interwebs.

Year in review. )


I don't think the New Year's celebration is so important. Not as important as the year itself. 2009 was hard emotionally, I hope 2010 can be better for me and for everyone I love.
dramaturgy: ([Buffy] I'll Never Tell.)

So this is another meme, this time from [livejournal.com profile] isis_uf.

2. Answer the questions.
3. Post!

1. Remus Lupin.
2. Castiel.
4. Sam Winchester.
5. Roger Davis.
6. Peter Petrelli.
7. Carlisle Cullen.
8. Simon Tam.
9. Silas Botwin.
10. Alex Karev.

Because I need to do something in here besides whine. Have a meme.

01. Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
02. NO CAPTIONS! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
03. They must ALREADY be on your hard drive -- no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
04. You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like

I need a meme, and [livejournal.com profile] endofhistory was so nice as to provide me with one.

Give me a character (or person) and I will give you at least ten facts about them according to my own personal canon. This can range from their birthday, favorite color or even their earliest memory up to what they had last night for dinner.

Give me one character, give me five, I don't care. I need something mindlessly fun to do.
dramaturgy: ([GG] Rory on the phone.)
Wow that was more trouble than it was worth. When I generated the table, it was too big to post (probably because I have a lot of one time commenters, from icon posts and stuff) so I had to pare it down to the top 300. XD

Who comments the most on this journal? )

Put your iTunes collection on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

Jenny Rebecca, Four Days Old

There! Right! There!
My love said to me
Being just me is so easy to be when I’m only with you
Murray, I am out of here, Murray
The name on everybody's lips is gonna be... Roxie

I'm gonna be a mighty king,
Adventure seeker on an empty street
Sit down, John! Sit down, John!
I see you try to turn away
Behold; I tell you a mystery

Last night I dreamed I walked through the maze to Lily's garden,
Many's the day I took for granted
Lady Erskine sits intae her bower
All those nights that we kissed
Is it sinful if you're blue to cheer up the place?

Something started crazy
There's a world of difference when faith is in a heart
I woke up to see your face again
I want your silent parts
Another hundred people just got off of the train

Briefly: I have it down to five grad schools. Three top choices (Columbia [not NYU like I originally thought], Amherst, and SUNY at Stony Brook) and two safety (University of Iowa and Marquette). Phew. I can do this.

Now, a holiday meme thing from [livejournal.com profile] endofhistory. (I've been lazy but I love the new hair, darling.)

Step One

Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it. Once a wish has been granted, it will be crossed off my list.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My brother broke my car -- well, Ron. But I drove him for several years and therefore he will always be my car. My brother broke him because that is what happens when you drive it for that long without changing the oil. Also, our washer is broken and even though it's been breaking since I was in high school, it might not be repairable. So we have to go to the laundromat to wash the clothes. I offered to share my prowess at washing clothes by hand, acquired while in Europe, but my mom declined. Not that I blame her.

I don't know what's going to go on. I think I should get the new car because my brother obviously does not take care of things, y/n? Doesn't matter, it's not going to happen anyway.

First, a meme since TrishHeatherKittyBee did it first.

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!

My grandmother is out of the hospital and staying with her brother and sister-in-law for a bit while she recovers completely. Things went well.

Last night I got a pizza to om nom nom since Friday was pay day and I didn't want to cook, and kept most of it because obviously, I cannot eat an entire pizza in one night. The last time I did I had a stomach ache for two days and I felt like a total pig. Anyway so I saved it in the fridge and I was going to come home, reheat it, and settle in for some Doctor Who. I was looking forward to that pizza, damnit. But I got home and my dad had eaten it for lunch. At first I thought it was my brother because he has a history of eating food that I've bought for myself without asking, but mom told me it was my dad. I feel like I just found out that Superman was doing all his heroic shit on steroids instead of just being Kryptonian.

I finished season two of Doctor Who, and I cried like a baby. I'm also ignoring the Doctor muse I have up here, no, I don't care if you're brilliant, leave me alone.

Things are going well at Lane Bryant. The girl who's been training me there was also a history major, so basically all we talked about last Wednesday was history. And today I learned to do a bra fitting!

I like this one.

As was demonstrated in an interview with Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN lj to spread the fun.)

Tinker v. Des Moines (1969). Supreme Court voted 7-2 that the school sending John and Beth Tinker home for wearing a black armband as protest to the United States's involvement in Vietnam and now allowing them to return until they complied with policy violated their First Amendment rights. It protects free speech in the classroom, within reason. Subsequent jurisprudence has given public schools the right to punish for indecent language (swearing, sexual innuendo, etc).
