I think things are finally starting to even out in the aftermath of The Great Computer Crisis '06 (aka my dead hard drive). Everything seems to be working even better than before. I had a chance to test out the new CD creator program the guy installed. Why wasn't I using Roxio all the time? So much faster and none of that file conversion nonsense I had to do with Adaptec.

I'm slowly replacing brushes and fonts, at least the ones I didn't have backed up. I think I have most of my favorites back, though some of the brushes I know I'll never see again.

I've uploaded a few more songs. Probably my current top five.
Death Cab, Pet Shop Boys, Mad Caddies, Jude, and Kendall Payne )

*waves to [livejournal.com profile] dreamerren* You like RENT, Chris, and Johnny? Why didn't I already have you friended? ;) Welcome!

*pokes [livejournal.com profile] marylou_gr* I haven't seen you around since I've been back, and I just wanted to say 'hi'! :)

I have to thank [livejournal.com profile] madame_d for pointing out this fic cause it probably would have taken me awhile to find it on my own. :)

[livejournal.com profile] hackthis has written another fantastic crack!fic featuring Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jared Leto, and Jake Gyllenhaal - The Incredibly True Adventures of Four Stars, Two Actors In Love, and One Gay Landmark. Read it, you won't regret it. *pokes Jared fans*

And while you're there, you might as well read everything she's ever written because it's good. Very good. :)

Also, thanks [livejournal.com profile] rocketbalm, [livejournal.com profile] katemcgregor04, [livejournal.com profile] whitewhizzy, and [livejournal.com profile] madame_d for all your help with the teeth question. I feel much better about it now. :)

First full day of subbing. Will check email, flist, etc when I'm able to form coherent sentences again.

*whimpers* My feet and throat are killing me. If there was any doubt, teachers aren't paid enough.

I haven't updated (with anything substantial) in ages.

1) school - classes started. Assignments are piling up. Have two papers due next week that I don't even have *topics* for yet (and it's not even my fault). Still loving statistics, and am now questioning my mental stability.

2) I actually kinda have a job now. I'm subbing at my local school, so it's not really constant, but I can work around my classes easily. I started last week, and I haven't run straight to my advisor and changed my major yet, so maybe.

3) Mom turned a whole load of laundry (mainly mine) pink today. *vows to never let her near the washing machine again*

4) I had a test this morning, and after I left this girl that I've had a couple of classes with but don't really know followed me to the bathroom (it's really more of a lounge) and asked if I could drive her to her apartment to get her spare key since she locked her's in her car. Now giving rides to strangers is clearly screaming "BAD IDEA!", but I did it anyway. She was really desperate because her roommate was in a wheelchair and couldn't bring her the key and she had to be at work across town in half an hour. She got her key, and I got an interesting story. *g* It was probably more funny at the time (she apologized for 'stalking' me to the bathroom), but odd things like that never happen to me.

*twirls new layout* If I'd known it was that easy, I would have changed mine ages ago. *g* Obsession is such an...accurate word, I think. :P
Edited for exact quote

Okay, I'm not exactly a huge Bon Jovi fan (though I could easily become one), but they were on CMT Crossroads last night (with Sugarland), and there was nothing else to watch, so I did. Aside from melting at the look Jon had on his face during "Baby Girl", I also found this comment especially giggle-worthy:

Jon: You know what's great? There's gonna be no living with Richie Sambora now because he's got this beautiful blond girl going up to him like this *imitates dance* while he's playing the talk box. 'Cause if he expects me to start doing that he's outta his mind. It ain't happening.
Richie: You've been doing that to me for years. *grin*

First, my mom's bday is Saturday, and being the perpetually broke college student I am, I can afford next to nothing. However, there are a few songs she *really* wants, and I'd love to burn a CD for her. Does anyone happen to have any of these that you'd be willing to send? *puppy eyes*

Song List )

So, the second full day of classes went better than expected. :)

  • My educational psychology professor is from India, so I alternate between loving her accent and not being able to understand it. She's really sweet, though, and I think I'm going to enjoy the class.

  • Tuesday I was going crazy because my poli sci professor reminded me of someone, and I couldn't figure out who. Then today in class, he made this weird face and it hit me! He looks like an older Michael Showalter (Stella, Wet Hot American Summer). He looks like him, sounds like him, even has the same mannerisms. *giggles*

  • Brett.

  • For anyone who may need to know this in the future, Application of Social Scientific Inquiry is a way of disguising and luring unsuspecting students into a statistics class. The funny part? I like it. I really like it.

  • I don't have a single history class, and I miss it like crazy. Especially, Dr. P's class. I've had him the last three semesters and it's just strange not going there anymore, but...

  • I also only have classes on Tuesday and Thursday now and am *loving* that. :) Four-day weekend!

Thanks for teaching me how to do the bullets, [livejournal.com profile] madame_d!

Thanks to everyone who helped with pics yesterday. I have the best flist. :) *hugs*

Random Family Ancedote:

Note: My mom gives really bad instructions and my aunt follows instructions really badly. I should not be surprised.

My aunt and her family are going camping over the holiday, and she borrowed this canopy thing that we have to take with them. She was trying to make sure that she could put it together before they left, so she wouldn't have to call us long distance to get help. I was in the kitchen making lemonade and listening to my mom give her instructions over the phone. After 45 minutes of which poles to put where, an explanation of 'what the heck' a gable is, and the occasional, "You should probably bring duct tape", Mom says, "So does it look like a tent? What do you mean you don't know? Is it standing up by itself? The legs are WHAT?"

Which is when she preceded to fall out of her chair laughing. After promising my aunt that one of us would be over later to help her, she finally hung up. They had apparently put it together upside down and when it became obvious that the legs were not suppose to be sticking up in the air like that, they tried to turn it over. And the whole thing came apart and collapsed.

My mom is still laughing about it. Actually, so am I. ;)

I went with my mom to take my brother to the doctor yesterday since I needed to do some shopping, and I didn't want to have to make a separate trip. She drops me off at the store and less than ten minutes later calls to tell me that the car broke down and that she's called my dad and he'll pick me up as soon as he gets there.

Three hours and a lousy shopping trip later, someone finally shows up to get me.

BUT...the day was not a total waste, I got the new BSB CD (which I love if there was any doubt) and The Dreyfus Affair by Peter Lefcourt. I can't rec this book enough, hilarious and touching and gay baseball players - what more do you need? ;)

This quote from Ben Affleck because it made me giggle:

"I am so interested in 'The Dreyfus Affair'," chimes Affleck. "Even thought it may not happen. The screenplay, based on Peter Lefcourt's book shies away from nothing, man," he says. For those who do not know anything about the acclaimed novel, here's the skinny. It is based on a Cal Ripken type baseball player who falls in love with a second baseman. The book and the screenplay include a lot of graphic gay sex scenes. "I'm not scared of those scenes at all," says Affleck. "Matt Damon has done his gay movie 'The Talented Mr. Ripley', so now it's my turn," he says jokingly. Who knows? Maybe Matt will get lucky enough to play the second baseman.

And now I'm desperatley behind on my flist and there's so much good fic to read. :)

*yawns* I spent all afternoon with one of my old friends from high school helping her shop for her upcoming trip to Japan. We had fun, but I'm surprised we didn't get kicked out of the store exhausted. She did burn me 3 CDs, though, so I feel bad complaining about a little shopping.

So, I don't rec a lot of fic, but if by chance someone hasn't read these two, they are brilliant.

Including the Kitchen Sink (The Lightsaber Thing) by [livejournal.com profile] hackthis
George Lucas is Pants by [livejournal.com profile] ethrosdemon

Ewan/Hayden with a little Jude Law thrown in for good measure. And a few more here while I'm at it. Oh, and this one, mainly because it also involves Viggo (but not in a slashy way).

And speaking of Star Wars, I so didn't steal the Darth Vader figure off of my brother's birthday cake. *shakes head* He gave it to me, he just doesn't know it yet. *places it beside Aragorn, which he actually did give me* I adore him...my brother, not Darth Vader.

ETA: I forgot to mention this, but someone may be interested.
