A few things I keep meaning to post about just to get them down.....

In no particular order, pretty much stuff that's happened this past week:

- God help me, I'm watching curling between Norway and Canada and craving Tim Horton.
- The little boy I'm watching right now wasn't going to bed, and long story short, I told him that his parents would be mad at him in the morning when I told them about how he was acting, and then he said something to the effect of "no they won't, because it'll be a new day," I was flabbergasted. It was just an unexpected thing for him to say. This family's kids are so whip-smart, I can't wait to see them grow up.
- OTOH, the girls in the other family, they're ok. It might be because I see them more often, but. I think I'm getting kind of disillusioned with them. Yes, they're bright girls and eh. I don't want to talk about them anymore. The older one is going to be gorgeous and smart in the coming years, and the younger girl is a little shit, but she's my little shit, so.
- the girls watch iCarly, so I've been following it now too, and man, I can't believe nickelodeon gets away with putting some of that stuff on the air. I really don't have any specific examples at the present time, but it's an hilarious show.
- In calculus we were discussing absolute, local, and global maxima and minima, and so we talked about mountains and valleys, so now I have "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" playing on repeat in my head.

Fnarr. My eyes are tired.

What now?

Random puking is random.
StepPeach#1: "Are you ok?"
Me: *crouched over the bathtub ( yay I made it to an appropriate vomit receptacle this time!)* " I threw up"
SP#1: " Well, yeah, I heard that...."
And then she went to go get my dad, who was somewhat useless, but who gave me a highfive for making it to the tub, and then she brought me water and gum. :) I really do adore her. I never really get to help her that much.
When I went downstairs to make sure I still had an appetite, I saw that one of the cats had puked as well. Coincidence? I think not! What would that be called? Sympathetic vomiting, or something like that?

Something needs to change so that after every calculus and organic chem test I don't feel the need to go shallowly slit my wrists and or cry into a tub of Ben and Jerry's afterward.

In British Literature, beginnings until1800, we were talking about the play Everyman. The new teacher started talking about what modern morality tales we could think of. This devolved into utter chaos until she said that spongebob squarepants was the perfect example. I don't even know.

Although, I do tell the younger girl, every time she laughs in that high pitched hyena cackle she has, that all her people will up and leave her like bikini bottom did to get away from spongebobs laugh, but she knows I'm kidding, I really do adore her.

Man, if the machines really wanted to win, they'd use those KitchenAid stand mixers on the front lines. I constantly think about how broken my foot would be if I accidentally dropped it while moving to an unoccupied counter. *shudders*

Asymptotes are so sad. Lines will keep coming closer and closer, but will never touch them. They'll always be alone. *sobs*

"I'm Katie fucking Fitch, who the fuck are you?"

I'm happy Katie and Emily got their own episodes this season. That last scene, with the girls picking up James so he could get the pizzas....I awwwwed.

I just want everone to be happy, is that so much to ask? Especially Effy. Effy's my girl.

Quick drive by post:

1) Every time we talk about exponential population growth in calculus, I always start thinking about tribbles.

2) Every day before the kids I babysit come home, Enterprise is on SciFi (I refuse to type it's other name). I started watching it then, and the next thing I know, I am ahemming it like crazy. Hello new fandom! I am very pro Trip/T'pol at the present time. YAY.

I just told the other cat, who was standing by the door as if he wanted to go outside, that "Outside is disease and danger wrapped in sunshine and noises." And then I started laughing so hard I had to sit down.

Methinks I have seen Star Trek one too many times.

A funny/weird thing happened a few days ago. I was petting one of the kitties I now live with, and we were having a great time, I was feeling special because he's been skittish lately but he was letting me pet him, and we were getting some purring going on, when he bit me. It was really weird, because it didn't seem malicious at all, just sort of...investigatory, because it was really quick, and not hard. I didn't think I was doing anything wrong, and we went back to petting for a bit, and then I left, but it was still an odd thing. Later, when I was explaining it to people, I thought of a really good analogy! It sort of seemed like something traders in the olden days would do to find out if the coins were gold or not by biting them to see of they were soft. But then people started teasing me, saying that the cat bit me to find out if I was a real human or not.

Oh well. It'll be a mystery.

Regarding Star Trek, I just can't bring myself to ship Kirk/Spock, at least, not right now. This might change in the future. I ship everybody else, but not that one. Is there something wrong with me? It's practically the original ship. Meh.

In other news, since I stopped using Firefox, all is right with the world of my computer. Even though Firefox probably wasn't the main problem the grinding noises have stopped. I'm going to miss the ninjas of Gmail, and the nifty thing it does in the URL bar, but it's for the best.

Also, this is taking me so long to type because the lights are off and I'm too lazy to walk to the switch and turn them on, and I really must work on my touch typing. And then for some reason I keep using the v when I need a w, which makes me think "Wictor Wictor." Oh, Chekhov. ILU.

I feel quite bereft without any new (for me) episodes of Skins to watch. Series three finished up last Thursday, and then I finally watched the rest of series two, because I'd spoiled myself for That Thing and I wasn't in the right frame of mind to watch it earlier.

What is it with tv shows being renewed for two seasons at a time? Is this a new thing? Not that I'm not pleased, but it's weird. And different.

My darling computer is making those cranky grinding noises again, but the newest, and most upsetting, thing that's going on is that when I was trying to watch Chuck last night, it started skipping. You know when a cd gets caught in that annoying loop when it's damaged, it was exactly like that. I think it might be the file though, hopefully, because I watched HIMYM next, and that went perfectly. It was pretty hilarious too. The grinding isn't new, it started last year, but this new stuff is recent. The only thing I can think of is my using Firefox now, instead of Netscape, which had been my browser for YEARS. IT took forever for the computer to go to sleep last night, and forever to restart it after that skipping incident. Firefox is a shiny and nifty, with all those good add-ons, and in Gmail I can see the ninjas I have it set to, but I think I need to uninstall Firefox and go back to Netscape, which is more at the pace, or level, of this old computer (we're going on 7 years together). This might not even be the problem, it might just be old age, but that's what I'll do.

Haven't watched Supernatural in forever. Or Burn Notice. Or Life. Shiny new TV shows for me: 30 Rock, Better Off Ted, Castle, Kings, the aforementioned Skins and the Mentalist. And The Unit (Betty Blue!)

Rachael Ray times now.

I remember what it was: When Chuck drops the box down the mail chute.
peachless: (Default)
So far, Chuck has caused me to:

1) Nearly cough up my water onto my computer because of That Tango in episode 3 and

2) Make this embarassing high-pitched squeak over something in episode 4, I can't even remember what it was, but I was trying to be quiet since it's past midnight and I didn't want to wake anyone, and I didn't, but I sounded like the beginning of a fire alarm.

More to come.

I decided to watch it because of the ad that played during the Super Bowl, where they were all dancing and singing along to that song.

Damn, but Yvonne looks like Naomi Watts.

It is my New Year's Resolution to become more fannish, so why not start a little early with a meme? I kept putting this off because I had to write a paper on Star Wars, of all things.

The one who seduced you and fucked you over and broke your heart in a million pieces and laughed about it: Supernatural. I love the Winchester brothers, I really do, but they rip out my heart, break it, chew it up, spit it out, and then stomp on it for a while before throwing it in the trash. And also Farscape; it did all of the above to my heart, but then put it on a boat in the middle of an ocean and got itself blown to bits.

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp in the sheets: mmm. Battlestar Galactica. It got kinda too, is esoteric the right word?, for me.

The mysterious dark gothy one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 a.m. at weird coffeehouses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized ze really was fucking crazy: Pushing Daisies.
Not the fucking crazy part though.Crazy in a good way. I just couldn't watch it anymore after the airport incident when I was watching it, but the headphones weren't plugged in all the way, and the volume was up really high, and a woman came by and told me that everybody could hear it. I know thats a terrible reason to stop watching it, but it's a really bad memory, and everytime I watch PD, I think about it. Someday, we'll get back together, but that day is not today.

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor, and whom you'd still really like to fuck again although you're relieved ze doesn't actually live in town: Secret Diary of a Call Girl. I couldn't look away.

The steady: Stargate Atlantis. It'll always be there for me.

The one you repeatedly cheat on your steady with: Harry Potter. We have a standing appointment. It was my first, too.

The one you find yourself too tongue-tied to do anything but stare at adoringly, clinging to hir every word: Burn Notice! Michael! Fiona! Sam!

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with: Boston Legal. The show is funny, and well made, but I could never imagine getting fannish about it.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with but ultimately you're just good buddies 'cause the friendship is there but the chemistry ain't: Friday Night Lights. I loved the first season, and I have it on DVD, except I loaned it to my mom, which means I'll not see it for a while, but then I heard the second season wasn't as awesone, and I have watched some of it, but now I've heard that the third season is getting good, so we might have to have a friends with benefits friendship.

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool peep except it's never really gone anywhere: I got nothing right now. Maybe later.

The one you slept with on the rebound who still smiles at you, yet you have no interest in any more: House.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at hir and thinking, "Hir? How the hell did ze land all these cool babes?": Bandom

The one your friend has fallen for like a ton of bricks and whom ze keeps babbling to you about on the phone for hours, and you'd be happy for hir except you just know it's going to end badly: Chuck. I really want to give it a try though, someday.

The one you're eyeing and saying 'Oh, maybe, just maybe - give me a sec, why don't you?' to: Merlin. I'm so easy. It just happened, too. Everybody was doing it, and all my favorite writers werewriting it, so I had to.

Doctor Who and SG-1 aren't on here, but I like them too. There were no choices above that fit them.

Finals time now. Argh.

Dear Texas Drivers (all vehicles)

You all are as dumb as rocks. I know most of you can read english, and even if you can't there are pictorial representations of the actions you should take. If it says lane ends, merge right/left, do it right the fuck away. Don't go into that lane to try to jump the line. Don't wait until the last second. Honestly. It's not that hard. Get off your cell phone, Woman in the Black Yukon before you sideswipe me. For the love of god, Blue Honda Girl, DON'T TRY TO PUT ON YOUR MASCARA IN A MOVING CAR. Powder is ok though. It will make both our morning commutes much safer, Man in the White Van, if you pay attention to what lane you're in so you don't try to get out of the turn only lane and into my turn &straight lane IN FRONT OF ME AS I'M TURNING and then have the gall to honk at me. Lady in the White Pilot, that was a very ballsy move. I certainly wouldn't have let you in. I'd leave that to the less bitter person behind me. Karma's a bitch, so I do try to let you people get in the lane, but don't take advantage, Dude in the BMW. You almost lost your side mirror. And Hot Guy in the Maserati? Don't pull out fast without checking first. Respect that car. Love that car. Because if I had hit you, I'd be crying not just over my car but also yours. Yes, I know I'm guilty of some of these as well, but, dumb as rocks, all of you.

No Love,

Which generic smut novel character are you? (With somewhat relevant pictures!)

The Obscenely Wealthy Heiress

Poor dear, all alone in your opulent estate, with no one but a tight-fisted, controlling prude of a relative to keep you company. Perhaps you can entreat some strapping young lad into educating you in the ways of the world.
