This is an incredibly belated post, but I feel like I want to send out some holiday cards this year. Is there anyone who would want one from me despite my lack of internet participation lately?

Comments are screened just in case.

Is this thing still on? *careful prod*

Hi. I'm still alive! In a manner of speaking! Life has not been too good to me recently, hence the long absence, but just so people aren't worrying too much: I'm hanging in there.

Belated thanks to everyone who went out of their way to wish me a happy birthday - you have no idea what that meant to me. <333

As usual, I've managed to completely lose the week. I have no idea how it's almost Friday. Yesterday was Monday! I swear it was! It feels like suddenly days are only made up of ten hours - oh wait, maybe that's because I keep passing out at ridiculously early times of night! Yeah, I'm a bundle of fun.

Oh, and speaking of fun - now that I've let the cat of my uncoolness out of the bag, woops - we're having a fangirl bash on August 15th and whoever wants to come is invited! If you can get into Pittsburgh, we'll entertain you and feed you (hopefully! We, er, still haven't decided what we're going to do about that!) and make you alcoholic beverages should you choose to indulge.

It's gonna be pretty freaking awesome, let me tell you.

Anyway. Today on the bus I was listening to my iPod to drown out the screaming child sitting across from me and wondering: if you could have anyone's singing voice - alive, dead, female, male - whose would it be? I'm curious!

So, this is probably the worst week I have had in a long time. I've managed to (so far): have a spectacularly emotional break down in the middle of the cafeteria; forget half my uniform for two days running; break my calculator half an hour before a conversions test in Breads; nearly get hit by the bus for the third day in a row while trying to flag it down; unwittingly offend half the people that I talk to on a regular basis; get stuck with the slowest goddamn girl in Breads kitchen, who proceeded to slowly knock half my ingredients off the table one by one and then try to steal my brioche couronne even though my name was CLEARLY right there.

There is more! I could go on!

Blah. At least I have a Julie to look forward to tomorrow, and a weekend of picnics and snuggles in my near future. God knows if I don't get some quality snuggles in the next few days I'll probably end up eating a pound of chocolate and terrifying the neighbors with primal scream therapy.

Anyway, here's that meme Darsy tagged me for a few days ago:

1). List your favorite female characters.
2). Explain why you like them or what makes them particularly awesome.
3). Post a picture and your favorite quote.
4). Tag five people to do the same.

Only four, but they"re good!Collapse )

I can't manage anymore right now because I have class in a couple minutes and don't anticipate having the time later on (OH GOD PROJECTS WHY), but Teyla would totally be on there with extra hearts, and so would Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

There are about seven gnats in my room right now. They are increasingly making me want to tear my hair out.

Speaking of! My new chef for Breads Kitchen looks like Jewel Staite. I swear to god I walked into lab and nearly had a heart attack because OH MY GOD. They even have the same nose and mouth, the apple-round cheeks and long neck, and she's really thin and all legs and. Guys, you have no idea how WEIRD it is to be reprimanded by Jewel Staite for wearing a hair band around your wrist (which will inevitably lead to me putting my hand in a mixer, the mixer paddle getting caught on my hair tie and RIPPING MY ARM OFF - yes, she really did say this to me). Oh, oh, and that's the other thing: she's MEAN! She said we can't hum or whistle or sing or make jokes or do anything of the sort during class time, and if she sees or hears us being silly, we'll be docked points on our Professionalism grade.


I don't know how I'm going to survive 28 days of a sour, fun-smooshing Jewel Staite look-alike. It's like I'm in a TIME WARP. Chocolate tastes bad, grass is purple, seagulls shit diamonds, and Jewel Staite hates happiness.

I have emerged from my first module unscathed! In fact, I am now the proud owner of two A's, a cracking waffle recipe, all of my limbs and phalanges, and a super fabulous girlfriend with whom I'm going on a fancifully romantic road trip on Friday. \o/ Laaaa! If I knew how to jig, man, I'd be all over that shit, but since I can't, I'm just gonna wiggle my hips a little and call it a day.

Picture!Collapse )

\o/ \o/ \o/

I could just victory arms all over this damn post, you guys. :D

In more internet-related news, I've finally found my flist again and started slogging through the bajillion and three posts I've been gone for. I missed you all so much! I felt so shallow and out of touch without LJ to turn to! Everyone's okay, right? I haven't gotten back that far yet, but I want to be spoiled if this is a sad fic and someone's gone or doing badly. Talk to meeeee.

Today I:

- wound up with a half inch piece of steel wool embedded in my knuckle. I don't know how I managed it, but dear god, never ever do that to yourself. *cradles hand*
- read really terrible porn during break between classes. No one should use the word "organ" to refer to a penis, I'm sorry, especially when said penis is being "played expertly" by someone. I nearly got tossed out of the library for excessive sporfle-age.
- made grits and was forced to taste them at least three times to make sure they were cheesy enough. IT WAS LIKE LIVING A NIGHTMARE.
- got a package from my dad which contained Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, which I fully intend to try and coerce ladycat777 into watching with me before the hockey game tonight. Would be best end to today, seriously. My kitchen lab group spent half the session singing free credit report dot com commercial songs and Putting On The Ritz and then one of them got God Gave Rock And Roll To You stuck in my head.

Party on, dudes!

Oh, that actually reminds me! I've been watching Star Trek episodes and I'm almost up to the movies, though I still have a few episodes to go. Would anyone want to watch some of them with me? This is my first time! I feel very lost and slightly befuddled with adoration!

Today was our first day of knife skills and I still have all my fingers. Not hacking off a limb: pretty much the highlight of my day. Which, when I think about it, is really just sad.

*flops discontentedly*

I could use a hug or twenty.

Now that I have time to actually sort of breathe: the first week of school was a success! And by success I mean I haven't sliced my fingers off yet. I still look pretty ridiculous in my uniform and I keep getting stared at on the bus, but that's not all that new, really, and actually having kids turn around in their seats or trip over their own feet trying to look at "the funny costumes, mommy, look!" is fairly amusing.

But, I don't know! Nothing really too exciting to report, since we haven't been allowed to do much more than make chopping motions yet. Oh! Although now I have a really vivid idea of how Rodney McKay would teach a Culinary Foundations class, since I swear one of the chefs secretly is him, going around and yelling at people to correct their stance or RISK LOSING THEIR LIMBS, HAVE YOU NEVER HELD A KNIFE BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE. I imagine John Sheppard would be his most insolent student and Rodney would daily tear his hair out over John's incorrectly tied neckerchief and scruffy cheeks and daredevil knife skills.

Strike a pose.

Other things of interest: 1) I get a kashmir1 today and hopefully she will be willing to cuddle me a little because my god it has been a long week; 2) I'm building myself a little garden in the backyard and it will hopefully grow things! which may or may not be green! I'm kind of excited, since I've never done a proper ground garden before; 3) I have no fannish shows to watch anymore! Supernatural is over, SGA is gone, Merlin hasn't started up yet, and Glee is just way too much contact embarrassment in one hour to watch more than once: what are you all watching?; 4) I have pennyplainknits' awesome merlin big bang and you don't, nyah, nyah.
