Okay, this is a really weird question, but is there anyone on campus with a powerbook laptop cord that they have no intention of using tonight? I have to write a paper, but my cord isn't working, and I really don't want to write it in a lab. I'm gonna buy a new one tomorrow as soon as the computer store opens, so I can return it to you ASAP.

Anyway, I have 17 battery minutes left, so if you're able to do me this odd favor, can you call 917-783-5232? I'll trek anywhere on campus to pick it up. Thanks!

I've been using this journal to comment on shit, so, in case anyone was wondering about the icon: I tried to make the exact opposite of me. you know, a black gay man with a purple afro who smokes and wears jewelry and has poor vision. Because I am a white gay lady with a brown hair-that-could-never-ever-be-an-afro-no-matter-how-hard-I-tried who doesn't smoke and wears no jewelery and has 20-20 vision.

And I've never been to Egypt.

You're Brian Eno!
You're a little reclusive maybe, a little quieter
than most people...
But man, who needs outside entertainment when your
brain is like KABOOM all the time? You are
innovative, creative, and intelligent. You
dress flamboyantly, gravitating towards large
feathers and tinsel. Everyone respects you, and
looks up to you. We are not worthy, we are not
worthy...

This journal is now an obsolete expression of quiz results and angst.
not quite obsolete. Those two things will remain here. But due to a longing to break away from the me of last year, I bring you:
Sharp Like A Duck, my new random ramblings.
bookcat: (Default)
Frankie got an "amen" from Sars. I feel so incomplete.
However, Wing put the PDKTF thread on the main page, which I'll take as a personal shout out, as I posted there a lot.
But... Sars, my love. Oh, Sars.

First of all:
Christ almighty, what have I done? I started a thread in TV Talk. I mean, I was just restarting one Wing closed due to an unclear title, but dude, I STARTED A THREAD! That's grounds for deathly humilation.
Second of all:
The Dumbest News Story Ever (a.k.a. I hate lesbians, especially Rosie)
Rosie O'Donnell objected to a cover of her now-defunct magazine showing her with her arms around two women on grounds of her being a lesbian, according to the magazine's former editor. Susan Toepfer was formerly editor-in-chief of Rosie magazine, and testified in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday that O'Donnell started a fight over the proposed cover for September 2002 that led to the publication's demise. The aborted cover showed former chat-show host O'Donnell standing in between two Sopranos stars - Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco - with an arm around each of them. Toepfer says that O'Donnell angrily called her after seeing the photo. She says, "(Rosie) said, 'You're about to hear a Rosie you've never heard before.' She proceeded to scream and yell at me. She was screaming obscenities at me. She wouldn't listen to me. She said, 'As a lesbian, I'm uncomfortable being on a magazine cover holding another woman or touching another woman.' I said, 'You know Rosie, that would never have occurred to me in a thousand years.'" Toepfer was testifying in court as part of the multi-million dollar lawsuit between O'Donnell and publishers Gruner + Jahr Usa, who are both suing each other for breach of contract. She continues, "(Rosie) said, 'I've been the boss of a TV show for six years. If I'm not going to be the boss of this, then I'll shut it down.'" O'Donnell's lawyer, Lorna Schofield says that part of her client's objection to the photo was that it was unflattering, and that Toepfer's near-insistence on the photo made O'Donnell feel she did not have control of her image. The case continues.

No, seriously. You guys, give me one good reason why we're not married. Besides our age and your sexual orientations and my general goofyness?
I'm sorry. To quote Jaya "You need to get laid more than any person I've ever met."

I have the urge to repeat the words "wicked smart" in a Bostonian accent over and over and over. Or to say "Grifter."
You Know You're Addicted to Fametracker When: You post something that almost starts a troll/flame type war, and you're proud of your ability to remain controversial.
I still am forced to hate that Trope bitch, though.
Shack's recap implies that Tru Calling is like Bad Teen Novel (or CFBSJ)-level exposition with Dushku-level hotness. I am _so_ watching next week. Homework be damned.

I've been able to do nothing all day but play games (like this and Word Racer @ yahoo) and read old IM conversations. And I really have to rewrite the bio. Which I did. But its crap.
I'm going to go take a practice SAT, to appease mommy. If I do well, maybe I'll get a pass for a few weeks.
bookcat: (Default)
Man, Halloween was cool. But pigtails hurt. As do my feet.
I'm tired, now, but I have to _re_-redo the fucking bio take home. I'm glad Margaux is letting me, but fucking enough already.
I love that cat. I wake up every morning almost to the sound of her purr.
I am wearing an ascot, and I'm totally wearing this to school on monday, along with some other crazy new thing that I haven't discovered yet. But anyway, the goal is clear... become cooler looking.

Maybe its just that I've had only good teachers in that department (Steifel, Chotiner), but all American History ever makes me want to do is debate politics for hours on end. Seriously, all I want to do is talk about welfare and social security and affirmative action... am I pro-AA? I don't know. I should be, hypothetically, but not practically, as I'm white. Hm...
Also, it may just be that I've only had bad experiences in that department (Baglio, Margaux) but I fucking hate biology. I love those teachers, they're nice people, but goddamn that subject sucks. I'm so horrible at it. My mice ate each other a few years ago, and now my brain is eating itself because of my freaking C average or whatever in that freaking class. Goddamn.

Bringing the pretty, tonight at 8
Someone watch for me? I can't, I've got a test and a quiz tomorrow. The PU (parental units, aka stinky people) will never let me watch a crap show for the purposes of loveliness. Especially on a school night.

Would it be against all laws of man and humanity if the next CD I bought after Avenue Q was Outkast? The fucking rap duo? Because I fucking love this song.
Nah. I oughta buy the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes first. I love them just as much. And its not so sacreligious. And, you know, I saw them live.

I need a new plot bunny. Except that only applys to fanFICtion. So I need a plot. I was going to write a parody of Chika Chika Boom Boom using teachers initials, but I couldn't find a copy of the book and I forgot the rest of my idea. So I was thinking of writing some other random poem. But I need a topic, and it needs to be fairly clever. No more love poems. I'm over that phase. Except I need to copy those poems into a notebook for halloween.
Also, my kitty is fine. No surgery required. I'm so psyched, dude. And she doesn't hate mom anymore. She did, you see, cos mom took her to the vet, but all was forgiven.
The only thing that isn't forgiven is my english teacher. I fixed every single fucking thing she said, and she was like "yay. B+". Nothing wrong with a B+, mind you. But if you write "GOOD!" in huge letters next to each motherfucking paragraph, fucking give it an A+! Arsehole.

My god, I wish Clone High were still on the air. I've gotta watch those episodes I've got downloaded.
Then, I have to marry Will Forte. The one funny bit left on SNL ("Pooooor Jesus") (Tina Fey excluded), a former producer on That 70's Show, Creator/Voice/Writer/Theme Song Singer on Clone High... Cool guy, that one.
I just wrote myself a résumé (where does that darn accent go?). I've got over a page an a half of theatrical experience, the majority as actress. (I started with my middle school credits, which was before I discovered the joys of being involved without having to wear silly costumes).

I have had horrible, horrible rap music stuck in my head all day, except for the few hours when Ever of Thee took over. But even then, it was looped with freaking P.I.M.P. Man, I hate Fity. Or whatever his name is.

I wish I had more ambitious fantasies. I mean, Jaya had a good idea... subtract one person, of course... but I didn't make that up. And I probably will never actually fantasize about it. Because honestly, I don't fantasize sexually. I fantasize about being famous or making friends or meeting people or flirting or kissing or writing or directing or... or... or...
I don't think I'm a very good assistant director. However, I know I am a fatabulous stage manager, and that is why I am going to apply for a job as a stage management intern at some theater company this summer. Plus, I could possibly schedule it around Chotiner's hypothetical class, which is the schedule-around event of the summer.
If I love him so much, how come it isn't his name I found myself scrawling in the margins?

Cats are totally a mans best friend. Or a womans. Dogs are all slobbery, man.
you know what? Lesbian stereotypes again: we love cats and love motorcycles (here I fit that.) And both purr really loud. Ain't it interesting?

Don't hate us cos we're beautiful but we don't like you either.
So to speak.
