bazolomew: (DW Ten FAVOURITE TIE <3)
So I could go into all my fears and stressors about life and the future and my fucking ex-landlady who stole $650 from me and I have little hope of getting back anymore, but instead I'm going to go the other way and try to be happy and nerd-gasm for a little bit.

First off, I miss you people. I miss LJ and I miss writing and roleplaying and I miss the internet. The reason I'm not on AIM or the roleplaying websites I used to frequent anymore is because I've moved into a house with a ton of roommates who I like and enjoy spending time with. The thought of secluding myself in my bedroom and sitting at the computer is really unappealing to me, yet I miss talking with people and mostly: roleplaying. I'm going through a lull right now in my gaming where I don't have enough money to afford to keep up with my computer/console games, my internet connection is not good enough to play WoW, and my roommates and other friends, while fun and engaging, are not gamers. Therefore I'm stuck doing what everyone else wants to do and not enough of what I do, though I feel drawn to spent time with them.

So, just know that I am thinking about you, friends, and perhaps someday I will make it online to spend some time with you.

Doctor Who continues to wow me with its awesomeness. The first two episodes of Season 6 blew me away and I'm so excited to watch a whole season in real-time with everyone else. I won't go into theories I have, mostly because I'm so amazed by Moffat that I can't even begin to form any credible theory, but it's definitely taking me for a wild ride. I'm surprised to find that I still miss David Tennant, though. It took me an entire season to warm to him after Eccleston, but once I got on his train, I was on it. I definitely am on Matt Smith's train, and I do enjoy him thoroughly, but I keep watching the show with a little bit of *wibble* for the past. It might be because Moffat took the show in such a different direction that it almost doesn't feel like it's the same show.

Not that I'm complaining! I feel like Doctor Who has been elevated into whole new levels of concept and (like I said earlier) it blows me out of the water. I'm absolutely enjoying myself.

Maybe it's the suit. I think I miss the suit most. And the coat.

I am also gearing up for Torchwood. I'm SO EXCITED for new Torchwood, and not only because the current status quo in the fandom seriously needs to be shaken up. I swear, I've almost given up reading new Janto fics because they're ALL the same. The only ones I even bother to click on are by certain authors and it's gotten to the point where I can identify the Character!Hate authors by name so I can avoid them like the plague. Unfortunately they seem to be the most prolific as of late, which I really don't understand. Just how many ways are there to write the same story about how much you love so and so while simultaneously bashing another character?

In other news, I'm kinda excited for this summer's movies as well... I'm pretty meh about Thor, honestly, but Fast Five looks awesome! (The Rock and Vin Diesel in the same movie?!?!? Hellz yes!) I am currently working with a guy who was a swordfighter in the new Pirates movie, which I'm excited to see, and then I can finally watch Harry Potter 7: Part 1 in preparation for part 2!! Last year, I refused to see it and repeat the mistake I made with Pirates 2 and 3. That year in-between was dumb.

Yeah, lots of fandom fun to look forward to. :)

Right now, other than Doctor Who, I'm still riding my Dragon Age II train, though I have no one to share that with. But I've kinda sorta fallen in love with my own character, which I've never done before... but I'm really enjoying it. I think it's because I can't custom tailor what he's going to say... I click the type of answer then he says the specific words, so there's a level of disassociation involved. Plus, this is my second time through and I've already played the "Me" character. He was supposed to be my "opposite" so I can learn what happens when I make the other choices, but he's really grown on me and now I'm only doing certain things differently. I'll do the bastard character next. (Last time I did that, I ended up killing most of the surface world. It was actually really fun to do everything "wrong".)


Well that's enough of a wall of dialogue from me. Have a good evening, if there's anyone even reading this anymore. Lol
bazolomew: (Default)
So I have a bunch to talk about but I'm severely tired and it's already 11:30pm, with work tomorrow morning. Suffice to say, I have moved into a crazy backwoods village about 20 minutes away from work and looking for a new place quickly lol.

That said: Oh 30 day Memes, why do I start you?

This is a Doctor Who one. We'll see if I complete it. I may just end up doing a bunch at a time, so I actually finish it. But yes. Here goes.

Still no news on the housing front. The two places I emailed from craigslist haven't gotten back to me. :(

Yesterday I played WoW for about 13 hours, increasing my iLvl from about 320 to 339 in one day. Not half bad, if I do say so myself. Unfortunately now I'm stuck in that point of having shitty gear in heroics, with the only way to get better gear by doing heroics. Thus, I lose groups faster than dead skin cells cuz I can't heal all that great with this shitty shitty gear. And I hate healing 5 mans anyway. I've been tempted to just queue as Shadow, but I did one like that last night and my DPS sucks as well. Basically, I'm already depressed about WoW because I suck and my friends are never on when I am.

I've been having fun through the TARDIS RPG, though I changed characters. I'm now playing Post-Utopia Jack Harkness, currently chained in the bottom of the Valiant. My Jack!Muse is being hyperactive, however, as I had to check myself during work last week when I realized I was making far too many inappropriate jokes. Ah well. My co-workers (and even bosses) are really cool about that type of stuff. We even have a running joke about "Sexual Harassment Friday" where inappropriate jokes are allowed on Fridays... and if they're made during the week you just have to say "Oh, oops, it's not Friday, is it?" and that pretty much makes it okay. I love my workplace sometimes.

I'm re-working my portfolio slowly, but next weekend is the So-Cal USITT job fair, so I need it done by then. I don't have any worries about that though, especially since I have tomorrow off as well thanks to MLK day.

I watched the 2005 version of The Producers yesterday, and mostly liked it. It was odd seeing Will Farrell in a movie that wasn't a Will Farrell movie, but he wasn't completely off-putting. The best part, though, was definitely a bleach blond John Barrowman singing Springtime For Hitler. That made me laugh so hard. I love that man.

I've also been reading everything on the Torchwood_Kinkandseek list for impact play. It's an AMAZING list of as many spanking Torchwood pieces as they could find. It hasn't been updated since November, 2010, but it's still amazing. The link for the list is here.

Other than Branwen Blaidd's stuff, which is always amazing, the one I just read yesterday was a piece called "Green" by [livejournal.com profile] wired_lizard. It is SO HOT.

Things change pretty quickly in my life apparently.

My landlady has now, out of the blue, declared the 30 days notice to be official, in writing too after I told her it wouldn't technically count unless she handed me a piece of paper. I'm glad she looked into the legality of asking me to leave before doing it. >.<

So now I'm definitely being forced to find a new place to live. This is going to be difficult because it must meet certain criteria:

Be at or below $500/month
Allow 2 cats
Be furnished.

Mom and I have discussed shipping some of my furnature from home out to me so that I don't have to worry about the third one too excessively. Really I'd just want my couch and a dresser, because I can buy a cheapo table for my computer it I must. The biggest inconvenience there would be the lack of TV, as I will be unable to play my PS3. Though maybe I could hook that up to my computer monitor? I dunno.

Either way this is a reality now.

In other news, the other thing I must get done this month is to re-do my portfolio in preparation of the Southern California USITT Job Fair on Jan. 22. So I've got 11 days to get that done too. I should have done that last week, but forgot about it completely. Ah well.

And in further news, I've been listening to the Doctor Who Soundtracks from Seasons 1-4 including the Tennant specials. I had known that I loved the song that plays over Tennant's regeneration but didn't know anything about it until I found that it's in Latin! It's called Vale Decem (Farewell, Ten) and I love it so much more now. It still makes me cry.

That said, since re-watching Season 5 a couple times in preparation of the Christmas Special, I have really come to love Eleven. I can't wait for the new season! Though I don't know how Moffit will top Season 5. It was just so well put together. The finale still gives me shivers because it is SO cool.

Oh, and I chopped off all my hair. This makes me ridiculously happy every time I look in the mirror. I think it looks fantastic.

Christmas

Dec. 26th, 2010 04:16 pm
bazolomew: (DW Full TARDIS)
Hallo.

I'm at my mom's house right now for the holiday season and it's going pretty well. I hate flying and the flight here was no disappointment- there was Star Trek level turbulence the entire way. The only good part was breaking through the clouds in Cleveland and seeing everything again, covered in snow but still recognizable. I missed my home state.

Christmas Eve went nicely with seeing everyone again. I missed my friends so much and got a bit too drunk at our annual Christmas Eve Bar reunion, giving me a hangover yesterday, but it didn't last all day. Seeing the family again was lovely as well and I got to play a bunch of new board and card games with them. Then, after Mom got tired and I drove her home, I went back over to Ben's and finished my character for a Warhammer 40k Dark Heresy game that Sean has decided to run for the next week.

I missed gaming with them SOoooo much. It was fantastic. Supposedly they want to attempt to play over Vent when we all go back to our respective home states, which I hope works out. I'm worried that me being 3 hours behind everyone will be too inconvenient, but we'll see.

In other news, they've pretty much convinced me to start up playing World of Warcraft again. I think I may buy it and see if I really want to stick with it again or not. Mostly I would just be playing for them though, and once again, if the time difference didn't work out, I'd probably drop it again.

I'm here for the next week and have plans to continue gaming with my friends, as well as a couple meetings with Fraternity Brothers, besides watching Doctor Who with my Mom. She's in the middle of the second season and I hope to make it at least to the end of the third by the time I leave. She is a fan of Captain Jack as much as I am and I want to watch her reaction to the end of Last of the Time Lords in person. We just watched Doctor Who At The Proms together, and though she hasn't seen Season 5 yet, it was wonderful to watch it with her. I'm planning on watching the Christmas Episode either tonight or tomorrow with my friends, but just haven't gotten to it yet.

So yes, this is my happy feel-good positive things post! Yay for being home and being with my friends again. They're like a warm blanket I can wrap myself up in.
bazolomew: (DW Amy beautiful)
So I've not been away from LJ, really... I just haven't been posting.

Mostly because I'm tired and don't really want to update. And probably partly because I'm a little depressed in general, thus lacking motivation.

I'm still in my Doctor Who phase and the story I was writing is now several parts over 25k words total. I didn't exactly make NaNo, but for me that's damn good. Unfortunately I also haven't finished the first long story and probably won't for a while. See: Depression/Motivation issues above.

I'm also almost finished with my portfolio that is due on December 20th, but going for a trial run this weekend (!) at a Film and Television Expo in LA. A group of us are going down and attempting to network. We'll see how that goes.

Work is going ok. After two weeks of literally nothing to do, we're now swamped. >.< Poor poor planning due to bosses and designers.

Also, my landlady has decided she likes having me live here and is not requiring me to move. There is another girl interested in the other room, but no word on if she's planning on accepting it or not. We'll see.

Basically I'm depressed because I'm homesick and starting to worry about being jobless next August. Which is silly... there's nothing I can do about that right now anyway. Everyone is hiring for the summer season right now, which I already have a job for. But it's still a stress in the back of my mind. This is one major downside of my field... you never have constant work. I'm only starting to realize just how much of a stress bucket that is. ("Stress bucket" is now my new term. Spellcheck didn't like "Stressor" so I was forced to come up with something new.)

Yeah. Sorry I'm so down in all my posts. It's that time of the season, I guess.

I resolve to post good things next time.

Oh, one good thing right now. Thanks to This Karen Gillan picspam I am now doubly in love with that woman. I have never crushed on anyone younger than me before. It's a little weird for me. But she is GORGEOUS. Unf.
bazolomew: (DW Ten crushed)
Suffice to say, life has become stupidly stressful and almost all plans are off for the month.

My roommate who was supposed to be living with me until next May moved out last Saturday. I was happy cuz I like living alone. Little did I know this spelled my own doom. My landlady called yesterday and told me that if I can't find another roommate in 30 days, she will be forced to make me leave.

I'm already looking into both legal counsel and alternative methods of housing as we speak. I really don't want to talk or think about this anymore. I'm just bringing it up because it's what I'm going to be dealing with for the next month, thus anything like NaNo has ground to a halt for the time being and I'm going to be immersing myself in things to help me forget while I'm waiting for word from the places I've contacted.

I also really really have to start putting my portfolio together. It's due in December and I've been too busy to do it before now, even though I told myself I'd really work on it in October. Funny how Tech Week and no money fucks all your plans.

So #1 priority is finding a new place to live. #2 priority is putting together my portfolio. #3 is getting an oil change. #4 is everything else.

So on to immersing myself in things that take my mind of my troubles.

Single Father was amazing. I really loved the ending to the series. The whole thing, despite what I said earlier, was very well written and I quite enjoyed it. I need to re-watch the whole thing in order at once, but it essentially is a welcome distraction from the issues of my life while I focus on the issues of Dave's. Plus I get the shallow fangirl bonus of seeing lots of David Tennant's chest.

I really loved the scene with Paul and Dave near the end, where they talk about religion. It's so hard for me to relate to religious characters because I am so anti-religion, but they never really brought it up just how religious Paul was until now. He had just joined the choir earlier. But he'd been my favorite of the kids since the beginning, probably because in the very beginning his brother goes "Dad's a fag!" and Paul responds with "What's wrong with that?" Plus he reminds me of me at that age to a large extent. But the religion thing... I just loved how Dave handled it. His amazement that Paul would know his stuff so well. His willingness to put things into a religious perspective for his conflicted son, while being non-religious himself. That is hard to do. And finally, how he tells him that no matter what, he should stick to his guns. I don't know why it was such a resonating moment for me, but it was and I'm glad I watched the show.

I rewatched Hook tonight for the first time since I was a child. Wow did I miss a number of adult jokes. During the insult trading scene with Rufio, Peter at one point calls him a "Near-sighted Gynaecologist". I also got happiness out of one of Wendy's lines at the beginning which references a quote from the book that we painted on the giant drop for the show that opens Saturday. (It's about blowing out the stars.) I had completely forgotten the scene where Peter and Tinkerbell make out... I think I blocked that out when I was a kid. ("Why is Tink big? Why is she kissing Peter? That didn't really happen.") Gwyneth Paltrow also makes a cameo as young Wendy which made me giggle.

I also came to a realization about two things. First, I am presently attracted to Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell and am wondering if this is where my attraction to spunky women with short hair started? Second, when Peter lands after flying for the first time, the camera zooms up to his tights-clad calves. Tonight, I went, "Ohhh man look at his calves! It's calves porn!" This has now made me wonder if my obsession with men's calves through stockings started thanks to this movie? I mean, I was six years old when I saw it. Those are very formative years, aren't they?

Yeah, weird realizations I had. Anyway, bedtime. More talking later.

Oscars

Mar. 8th, 2010 01:56 am
bazolomew: (IM flying)
Watched the Oscars with my friends. Was so incredibly happy with the results. Everyone who deserved to win, did, IMO. Some of the races I didn't care about, like Best Actor, and others I did, like Best Actress. I'm happy to see a woman winning Best Director and even though I love the Sherlock Holmes soundtrack, Up's really was fantastic. I was glad that Avatar only won what it deserved to win, namely: technical merits. I was glad Up won as much as it did.

I need to see: The Hurt Locker, The Secret of Kells, A Serious Man, Crazy Heart, and The Last Station, all of which I was previously unaware of, plus Nine, Inglorius Bastards and The Blind Side, which I was aware of. All of them looked interesting.

Robert's presentation was the funniest, even with Ben Stiller being a Na'avi (sp?) and the Foreign Film winner had the funniest part in his speech. Something to the effect of "I'm glad the Academy didn't consider Na'avi to be a foreign language." I liked Elizabeth Bank's dress the best, and Rachel McAdams was STUNNING. (I feel bad that I didn't like Susan Downey's dress, but her make-up was beautiful as always.)

Then there was Jimmy Kimmel.

At first I was slightly bummed that RDJ was not a part of the Handsome Club, but during the spiel, I was pleased with how he addressed it. I pretty much enjoyed the hell out of his entire spot, but...

OMG TRAILER.

OMG. I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM.

Slight nit-picks: Justin Hammer not being British, Don Cheadle, The Predicted but Now Realized Demise of Tony/Pepper.

HUMONGOUS SQUEES: TONNEEEYYY. "I want one." "No." IRON MAN AND WARMACHINE VERSUS A CIRCLE OF GUYS. Fucking Samuel L. Jackson. "Agreed." Tony SHOWING HER HOW TO USE HIS REPULSER. (I see baaaaaad things coming from that) and, of course, SUITCASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it May 7 yet?
bazolomew: (gayporn)
So I was informed today by reading the paper that this week is national coming out week. So I'd just like to take this moment to state for the record that gay men turn me on, gay porn makes me go yay, and that I've decided to classify myself as bisexual.

Go me.

In other words, give me any combinations of Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Tom Welling, Mike Rosenbaum, Jeffery Dean Morgan, Christian Kane, and David Boreanaz and I will be a happy person.

Though I prefer Jared with Jensen and everyone else on the side. With Jared's permission and observation, of course.

The last time I posted was finishing up the summer. I havn't posted in a while. I don't really feel like talking about much... but I will anyway. I'm pretty emo at the moment.

Life (Project Runway and slight SPN Spoilers) )

Labor Day in PA )

Band )

That’s pretty much it. I think I’ve finally caught up. Yay. Maybe I’ll be less emo in the future. Oh well.

Next Thursday will hopefully be better… but I’m really scared that they’re going to do my worst fear with Dean. But I’m not going to mention it, because I don’t wanna become more emo. Goodnight.
bazolomew: (yummy)
So I'm a lazy mofo and havn't gotten off my ass to post lately.

Let's see...

Pet's Visit )

So that was three weeks ago. Two weeks ago...

Emi's visit )

Then last week was my gaming convention.

Origins 2006 )

And finally, I saw PotC2 last night. But I'm totally gonna talk about that in another post because I'm trying to post online, post this, talk to Pet, and watch Smallville all at the same time and I've been working on this post for SIX HOURS. I'm done. More later. Woo!

Crazy

Jun. 11th, 2006 01:51 am
bazolomew: (crazy)
So, I am officially crazy.

Not only have I not slept in 26 hours, but I also made a new RPG forum based on an AU version of the X-Men universe with [personal profile] soulless_lover . It's located at http://p068.ezboard.com/bxaviersschool59041 for anyone who wishes to join. Make sure you read the Announcements first, though.

Other than that I'm good. I'm happy I get tomorrow and monday off, though going back to work is gonna suck. I never realized how much exercize and mind-numbingly boring it is to shove books back on shelves.

Oh, and my band director hasn't emailed me back yet about copying music, so I guess I'm going to wait until Communiversity band starts next week to ask about it.... if he's even there.

Whee for boring life.
bazolomew: (right)
Wow have I been busy.

The weekend after I last posted was memorial day weekend, and my brother came up for the weekend along with his girlfriend. We went out for dinner with her family on Saturday, and they invited us to go see a movie with a few of them. My mom and brother didn't want to go, but I really did because I love her family so much, so we went and saw X-3.

I'd only ever seen the last half of X2, and didn't remember much. I came in at the part at the house where Pyro starts incinerating things. I remembered Magneto and Patrick Stewart's character. (Who I now know is called Charles Xavier.) I remembered Pyro because I thought he was cool and liked how he was a good guy that then turned bad, and I remembered a little about Wolverine, mostly that I kinda liked him and he had big claws. I also remembered it took place at a dam. Other than that, I was either lost, or didn't remember at all. (ex. The Ending)


But yeah. So I loved it, as you can probably tell by the way I'm talking about it.

Anyway, after the movie I dropped Colleen and Michelle, (my brother's girlfriend and her sister) off at their parent's house, and drove home. The next day I went to my mom's house because she was hosting a "Let's get together for Memorial Day party" for our family and theirs. When I got there I helped make deviled eggs, and then my brother and I went downstairs and played World of Warcraft for a while before our guests arrived.

I can't begin to tell you how much fun this was. I hadn't played computer with my brother since we both were still living in our old house, which would have been before he left for college, so about 5 years ago. And when we used to, it was always me being upset because he never thought I could do anything right, and I'd always be pissy and hate it.

Well maybe we've both changed, but he really was being nice and complimenting me and everything. We completely destroyed the level we were in (can't remember which part, but it was Scarlet Monastery) and this was with me playing a lvl 40's druid that I'd never even touched before. One time I made a bad pull that turned into us annaliating the entire fricking area around a huge ass fountain, which was about 14 bad guys all attacking in succession, usually 3 at a time. And we LIVED! It was amazing and SO much fun. I remembered why I love my brother for reasons other than I have to. ;)

Anyway, once everyone got there we had a really good time just hanging out and talking. I talked with a girl (who's now the girlfriend of Colleen's brother) who I went to elementary school with, and hadn't had any contact with her since, and I learned that she's a really cool person. We had fun reminicing for a while.

Unfortunately, after everyone went home my brother and I got in an arguement that resulted in me breaking down and having a crying tantrum and ruining the evening, and we parted on bad terms, but I have since apologized and made up so it's all good now. We were both being kinda stupid... and I'm still getting over that we've changed since we used to live together. Plus I've kinda gotten spoiled with him not being around, because I'm used to having my mom's undivided attention now, and I found myself getting upset because she was talking with him instead. I'm glad I realized it so I could calm myself down and not ruin the time they had together, but it was kinda a shock.

Also while he was here he fixed my new computer for me, and it works!! Yay!!! It's so nice and new and I love it so much. I'm trying to keep myself for downloading a bunch of crap, and I've started using FireFox instead of IE, because he says that it's safer than IE, so I'm pretty happy.

So that was 2 weekends ago. On Memorial Day I went and visited [personal profile] soulless_lover for a bit, and told her about my new love for X-Men and learned she used to love it too. So we went and saw X3 together, and it was interesting seeing her reactions, especially because then I made her explain everything to me after.

I spent that week falling deeper into the clutches of X-Men, though I'm still completely obsessed with Supernatural, because I have finally managed to write a story!! Well... the first chapter of a SPN story anyway. And it's pretty good! And I have the rest of the story semi-mapped out, with the second chapter completely mapped out. I just need to write it now. I'm really happy about it, and am excited to write more, but I've just been so tired and busy.

Last Thursday, however, was fun. The WB is rerunning Supernatural during the summer, so I called [profile] carolfish and she called up [profile] angelstart[profile] and we did a 3 way convo for the episode, then continued on into the night while we watched more. We started a tally of the number of times Dean licks his lips in an episode, and so far the average is about 7 times an eppy. It also depends on how happy the episode is. In Something Wicked, he only licked his lips 3 times, but in Hell House it was a whopping 11 times!

That was a blast. Then, at midnight, I drove out to Grafton to pick up [personal profile] soulless_lover because Friday morning, she had her PASS program at Kent State. We came back to my house after I picked her up from work and started watching a few of her old X-Men VHS tapes that she had made when she was younger and the cartoon was on the air. I was falling asleep, though, so I went and took a 3 hour nap before we had to get up and go to the Student Center.

I got to play "family member" for the day, and managed to email my band director during the slew of downtime I had while she took her placement tests. She then went to her advisor and I checked out X-men comics that the Bookstore sells and when she was done, she had good news. She managed to score so high on the English placement test that she doesn't have to take ANY english classes. I HATE HER. I spent 5 semesters trying to complete my english requirements, and she manages to do it in one test that she took after being awake for 24 hours. *sigh*

Anyway, after we were done, and finished yelling at fucking student financial aid bitches, we went home and slept. We woke up at about 11pm and it was Logan who greeted me. He taught me how to do some yoga and other exercizes, then we went grocery shopping until 2am, when we went on the Wal-Mart Run From Hell. Basically, I couldn't remember which area Wal-Mart was open 24 hours, so we went to 3 before I remembered which one it was and then got lost on the way there. We finally managed to make it though and now I know where it is. Yay for me! After leaving for the grocery store at midnight, we didn't make it back until 4:30am, and I had to work at noon. But we hadn't eaten, either, so Logan made steak and potatoes while I picked a movie, and then we settled down to watch Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

Have I mentioned that I like steak and potatoes? I think I'm Irish at heart. The problem was, I took a HUGE piece of steak and gulped it down, and it managed to get lodged in my esphogus. I wasn't choking, and I could breathe, but it seriously felt like something was stuck. You ever take a big mouthful of bread or bun or something and try to swallow it and it goes really slow, and then you take a drink of water and it pushes it down and you feel relief? That's what this was like, except that when I tried to take a drink of water, I couldn't swallow it and I had to go throw it all up into the toilet. Unfortunately the blockage wouldn't come out and it was REALLY painful. I sat wondering what to do and trying to puke it up, but it wasn't coming, so I called my mom at 6 in the morning to ask her advice. Talking to her calmed me down and she assured me I didn't need to go to the hospital since I wasn't choking. I finally managed to get it down and into my stomach by gulping down water really fast and hard. And there was Logan being all nice and getting me things and helping me while I'm being little miss Drama of the year.

But it turned out ok, and after going back out and cutting small pieces while chewing each one 50 times, I finished my dinner and got so tired that I went to sleep.

I woke up and went to work, then came back at 4pm to find him still asleep. I played WoW for a while and when he woke up, he got emily and she and I went out to eat with my mother. Then we went to Target to replace Logan's hat that my kittens had destroyed, and went to Best Buy after that to pick up X1 and X2. When we got home we totally camped out on my futon and watched both movies.... and I'm hooked. The sad thing is that I really don't like the comics all that much. There's just something about comic books that I've never liked... and I think it's because  you don't get a good sense of what's going on. You see someone trying to hit someone else, but it's hard to tell if they hit or not, and there's little sound effects that don't make sense in my head everywhere... I mean when you punch someone you don't normally think "Oo I punched him, it sounded like FWOOP!" Plus with the action drawings, it's hard for me to figure out what's going on.

But seeing the movies where I can get a good sense of character, and the action is easy to follow, plus I can get a real life face for the characters... I'm in. I love the movies... and Hugh Jackman just rocks my world as Wolverine. Which is funny cuz I don't find him nearly as cool and attractive when he doesn't have the hair and the burns. He just looks like your normal, 6'2" guy, who can sing and dance. He's funny, and seems like a REALLY nice guy, plus he's EXTREMELY talented (have you ever heard him sing?!) but he just doesn't do it for me like he does when he's playing Wolvie.

So yeah. After watching the movies, I was understanding X3 a WHOLE LOT BETTER, and wanted to see it again, but by that time is was about 4am again. So I went to sleep and slept like a rock for 12 hours. When I got up emily said Logan apparently had gone for a walk in the wee hours of the morning while I was sleeping, and got made fun of by a bunch of drunk college kids. It didn't surprise me, as my neighbors have less than nice habits, but also kinda made me laugh. Then em called her dad to try and get him to put money in her bank account for her, but he was being uncooperative ("No I can't do that, I'll give it to you in person, so fi you want it drive over to Berea") so we drove to Berea and took care of that, along with em buying herself some booze that I most definitely didn't touch because I'm under 21, and we went to see X3 again. This time Logan was out, and that was fun, watching a movie with himself in it. I managed to find the guy who people on the internet are calling Gambit , and if it WAS him, I'm SO disappointed, cuz he looked like a stupid ugly tall guy in an overcoat and a wig (I've been reading em's comics so I'm learning who other people are, and I definitely like Gambit best, second to Wolvie, so far)

Then we went back to em's apartment and Logan made some fish that was fantastically good, and we watched Troy before conking out. (I was actually impressed with Troy, as they didn't change as much of it was I assumed they would... with the exception of "Oh it's Orlando Bloom so we have to give him fight scenes, even though Paris never lifted a finger in the real story") By the time we woke up on Monday em had to go to work, so I drove home and messed around online.

The rest of this week I've been working non-stop, and am waiting for an email from my band director to see if he has any music picked out that I can come in and copy for him for Marching Band yet. Other than that, Communiversity Band starts next week which I'm excited about, and I'm feeling really good about school next year again, cuz I managed to get my schedual squared away. I'm at the pre-school excitement phase that I get every year after I schedual for classes, so yay!

And I did see a counselour, but she referred me to a different one (who happens to be the same one I used to have years ago) and they've yet to call me back about when she's free for a new appointment. I'm planning on calling them too.

Plus I'm really starting to get deeply involved with the Student Group of the Ohio Gamer's Organization at Kent State, which is gonna be crazy if JR keeps micromanaging things like he is. He really needs to understand that if the student group is going to exist, it's going to be WITHOUT his involvement because he's not a student, and his face is HATED throughout the administration on campus. We're starting in a hole that I have to dig us out of BECAUSE of him, and now he's trying to tell me that I have to do things his way. Well I'm sorry, but I'm involved in a student group on Kent State already, I know how it works and for the most part what I need to do, and we're going to have a struggle succeeding with his ideals and problems that he's given us, let alone trying to be competition to a gaming student group already on campus.

That's about it for now... though I'm planning on getting together with Pet again sometime in the next few weeks, but it depends on what she says and other things too. Whee!

Woohoo

So. Computers are BITCHES. My new one came in the mail, yay for that. But I set it all up made sure it fit on my table so I can run them both at the same time so i can transfer data (because my CD burner on my old computer apparently doesn't work anymore) and turned the new sucker on.... and it shows the "Loading Windows XP" screen, then the screen goes black and nothing I try makes it show anything. I get to wait until this weekend when my brother visits for help.

So now I'm having problems with my new one while my old one slowly dies more everyday. Today my Paint Shop program refused to work properly... it only opened about 1/3 of the buttons and applications within the program and wouldn't let me save or open anything other than jpgs. Plus "save" was the only selection I could make. My computer wouldn't let me see any picspams on LJ today, and AIM was having problems not committing fatal errors every 15 minutes. Then when I was trying to read fics, my mouse scroll decided to set itself to "page back" instead of "scroll down" so everytime I tried to scroll, I ended up 2 or 3 webpages previous. And if I tried to click on something, it would highlight everything up to where I clicked, instead of me just left-clicking. And to make my life SO MUCH EASIER, I accidentally dumped my bottle of water all over my keyboard, which was interesting because the only thing that would work after that point was the keyboard shortcut for "calculator" (which i didn't even know existed) that would randomly pop itself up about 7 or 8 times while I was trying to sop up water from the floor and wasn't even looking at it, let alone touching anything. 

Isn't technology wonderful?

In other news I went to [profile] pet_23's house last weekend and we watched a whole bunch of Dark Angel (OMG is Jensen HOTT in that), a few clips from Jensen in Smallville, New York Minute (Jared shirtless then in see-thru white shirt=lust), some interesting fanvids (RPS fanvids are much more fun and much less squicky than they sound), and a behind the scenes of House of Wax thing. (Jared's so Cuuuuute). We also read some fic together and nearly pissed ourselves laughing about random shit because when I havn't slept in 23 hours and drove for 4 I get crazy slap-happy at 6am. We also spent 2 hours looking at pictures of Jared and Jensen, and I completely stole the mouse and played Zoom In On Jensen's Pointy Nipples for a good 3/4 of it. Damn does that man have pointy nipples that you can see through nearly any shirt he wears. I also had fun zooming in on pictures of Jensen's open mouth. Like I said: Slap-happy.

She burned me 2 new CDs of SPN related music, and then I came back home and watched a West Wing with my mom before coming back home home and reading porn until 5am, then sleeping until 8am when I had to get up for work. 

I've pre-ordered SPN Season 1 from amazon.com, yay. And I'm seriously considering going to Nashville for the first ever Winchestercon in October. I'm not sure yet, because it's alot of money and an 8 hour drive from my house which I don't think I could do by myself. I checked flights and it would be over $100 for a roundtrip ticket (which isn't too much honestly, but more than I'm willing to pay on top of hotel and convention fees) I just don't know if it would even out with gas prices being what they are. Right now it's about $40 a tank, and if it takes 3/4 a tank to drive to Clearfield and back (which is about 150 miles) it would take about 3-4 tanks for the 500+ mile trip to Nashville. I'm going to have to do a lot more thinking. I have until July 1 to decide, though maybe less because apparently the hotel is getting booked fast.

In other news I'm waiting to talk to my psychologist before seriously considering dropping out of college. It's just kinda something I'm running through my brain at the moment. I realized that I'm blowing money that's supposed to last me through life on band and indecisiveness right now. Since I have no idea what I'm doing or what I want to do, it makes more sense economically to drop out, save money, and try and decide what I want instead of blowing it all on experimentation.

I'm also gearing up to try my hand at writing again, because I havn't been this obsessed with something in a long time and I'm finally thinking of possible ideas. 

Oh, and I'm planning on getting my hair cut again, and I'm thinking about trying a Sam style cut, because it might look ok on me. Plus if I don't like it I can just go from there into something Angel/Dean-like. Now I just have to get over the embarassment of carrying 2 pictures of Jared Padalecki into a shop and being like "Hi, I'm a crazy!obsessed fangirl and I wanna get a boy's haircut that looks like him even though you can see I'm a girl and I know you're going to laugh over this for hours in the backroom". Oh well.

My mother's bought a house. So now I get to clean out all the shit from her old one. Whee. I think I've said this before but I can't remember right now, plus it wasn't set in stone like it is now.

"Lollipops and Candycanes."

"No NO! Get off of Jesus!"

Some happy quotes to get me out of my depression. Oh and [personal profile] carmendove totally made my day with behind the scenes icons of the boys... and 3 of them hit my naughty!kink so hard... one of which I'm using for this post. The other two are great as well... especially the "Jensen Ross Ackles Go to your trailer!" one. Hit my naughty!kink AND my full-name!kink. *sighs in happiness* (they're all in my userpics if you wanna see the other 2)

Bye for now :)

Randomness

bazolomew: (crazy)
So I'm totally random tonight. After staring at what must be one of Jensen's senior pictures, not mine

I realized how crazy Texans are. I mean, this kid is wearing a sweatshirt with the name of his state on it and his state flag on his head, and he's smiling and obviously so proud, because he got it for a senior picture pose. (Or so I'm guessing, but the pose is so Senior picture cliched it's gotta be.) Now, I know damn well that if anyone in Ohio decided the wear a sweatshirt that said "Ohio" on it and somehow tied the state pennent to their head they'd be TOTALLY laughed at... and most likely weren't really from Ohio anyway because everyone in this state hates it and wants to leave.

Now my question is why are Texans so gung-ho about their state, when the only other people I've talked to who like theirs are people from Pittsburg (and only when talking to someone from Ohio). (Mostly because of the Steeler's/Pitt vs. Brown's/OSU thing.) 

I mean, honestly. Do Texans teach state pride in elementary school or something? Cuz Ohio really really doesn't. 

Oh well. So that was my first random thought of the night. Second was the fact that over the past few nights I've been reading tons of fanfic and writing down on a regular sized post-it note all of my kinks. The post it note is full and I count... 33... and sadly all of them were thought with Supernatural in mind, meaning that I've read fics or seen pictures containing at least one of each... though I've done the same with Buffy previously.

33 kinks )

I just thought I'd share that which is probably more TMI that anyone needed to know about me... but I'm horny and can't help but share my kinkiness with the world. Woo.
bazolomew: (yummy)
So I just felt like posting because.... I havn't in a while I guess.

My job is going well... I put books away. That's about it. Whee.

So I went over to [personal profile] soulless_lover's house last weekend and after shopping we watched the first season of Queer as Folk and now I'm into it... Brian especially. That man makes me wish I was a gay man. I'm not obessed, just pleasently into all the boysex and all the issues and controversy it brings up. Yay for tackling issues... and I have mixed feelings about it being on Showtime. If it wasn't there wouldn't be nearly as much porn or fucking or swearing or happiness... but it also would have a much wider viewing audience and might be more impactive on society. Because the one episode where Justin is denied his right to start a club at his school is a HOT issue right now along with many others of intolerance and injustice. And especially because it's based in Pittsburg... which is so close to Ohio and shows that even in the conservative midwest there are gay men and lesbians, and they're FUCKING NORMAL PEOPLE WHO CAN'T EVEN GO INTO THE HOSPITAL TOGETHER BECAUSE OF IGNORANCE. 

/rant off

In other news, The West Wing ended, and my mother and I cried for like 30 minutes afterward. I called what was in the box like the second before he opened it and OMG heartwrenching!

Speaking of my mother, she's made an offer on a house a few streets away, which means I gotta get over there and pack my old room up... which sucks because it's a disaster. Boo. 

And I'm still obsessed with Supernatural.... though since it's not on anymore, I've been reading all the fic I can get my hands on... and have found the amazingness that is RPS between Jensen, Jared, and Christian Kane. Mmmmmm. 

I've also been thinking alot lately about moving to LA and trying my luck there... but that's about as possible as Jensen, Jared, and Christian announcing that they're really having sex together. I just can't get it out of my head tho... espeically since that's how all three of them got started... but then I remember that 1) I'm not a man, 2) I'm not hot, and 3) The only parts I've ever gotten were because other people were desperate for actors, not because I auditioned and got the part. 

My low-fat/low-cal diet isn't going so hot... but I have been working out a bit... and after watching Supernatural and wanting to look like Dean, and especially after watching Queer as Folk and watching the four of them work out everyday, I'm really feeling motivated. If only this hadn't happened earlier in the year when it was still free for me to use the Wellness and Recreational Center at the University, but the assholes charge during the summer. Doh.

Still not sure about my major next semester... I don't think I'll be able to handle the workload. I think I might be happier doing art or something where the workload is all about making things and not practicing. I love making things.

I made an appointment to talk to a counsellor again, cuz I'm so unsure about my life and I hope that she'll be able to help guide me in the right direction. What I really need is a Guidance Counsellor, but those don't exist on the college level (that I know of) plus, no one's at KSU anymore and I really can't wait 3 months to see someone.

And I'm slightly pissed that I can't figure out how to get my lj cuts to work anymore... but it might just be my computer.... which is BEING REPLACED IN 2-3 DAYS! WOOOOOO!!! My brother helped me buy a new one since mine won't do half the shit I want it for anymore... and I've had it since 8th grade. It'll be top of the line and brand new and yay. Hopefully I can get it to work on my own, since my brother will be in Columbus when it arrives up here. I might call him.

Think that's about it for now...

One last thing tho.... to everyone who reads and those who comment: I'm sorry I don't reply to your comments... I'm trying to motivate myself to do such, but I just never know what to say. I do read them tho, and appreciate them. Love to my small yet happy flist.
