My not-so-secret ambition is to conquer the world and enslave all humans. That, or open a bookshop and find a way to legally marry a fictional character.

No Longer Friends Only

I idolize the Rat Pack. I prefer listening to the Beatles on my record player. The best song to blast in your car stereo while driving is "Bohemian Rhapsody". I watch Dexter or Animal Planet (when I bother to watch TV). I am currently battling against my addictions. The addictions are winning.

I read Dilbert before I read any other comic in the newspaper. All I read in the newspaper is the comics. I'm one of those chick video gamers. Which means I play MarioKart and Drake&Josh and Brain Age and Quidditch World Cup and Super Smash Bros and and Sonic the Hedgehog and Dance Dance Revolution.

I make crude, politically incorrect comments on a regular basis because the world is too damn serious. I have a thing for Jews and Mormons. I blame Mel Brooks and Donny Osmond. I quote movies. A lot. I have at least one interest for every letter of the alphabet.

I only have anger issues when I drive. And then, I'm homicidal. I tend to focus all of my energy on one obsession at a time. Currently, it's Dexter and serial killers.

I have a speech impediment known as sarcasm. I was a paid livejournal user until the strikethrough/boldout nonsense. And since I have refused to give the company anymore of my money or submit myself to being "plussed" and covered in horrid ads from 6A douche sponsors.

I miss my 113 icons.

Friends Only, comment with a joke or a line from Blades of Glory to be added.

Just kidding. But funny commentary and inside jokes makes me like you more...

I'm so bored with school. Why do I do this? How on earth did I get as intelligent as I am with how lazy I am when it comes to schoolwork and an attempt at learning? Seriously, it's ridiculous. Why can't they just hand me my zoology degree as long as I promise to read up on mammal biology?

Today was one of those days at work that made me see the true, devastatingly evil nature of humanity. Some days I hate people.

And because that seems to be a seamless segue-way: I have developed two addictions within the past few days. One, to the Showtime program Dexter. I'm surprised it took me as long as it has to find out about this show. A) I've been fascinated by serial killers since I was 11. and B) This concept was exactly what I was trying to bring across in one of the screenplays I was working on - finding a way to empathize with a societal deemed monster because ironically his killing is cleaning the world. I'm so fucking weird.

The other addiction is currently to damned_ladies. You are made of awesome.

Plans this weekend for an immense amount of homework, and a rockin' free Beatles concert on Sunday. I am so excited. Also, KISS possibly coming in November. Dwight Yoakum at the Fresno Fair. Now all I need is to be offered a job in Australia and join a Blues Brothers cover band and life will be golden!

Oh god. School starts tomorrow. And for once I'm taking more than one class this semester. And what sucks even more is I won't have a Sarah to share my classes and sarcasm with. Boo. I am looking forward to tennis, strangely enough.

Quantum Leap is far too addicting. And I think I've fallen in love with Jason Segel. Which spurred a random purchase of the complete series of Freaks and Geeks (of which I have yet to actually see). Also the purchase of a hilariously awesome shirt from the awesome creator of Yu+Me=Dream.

I finally reached the point I needed to reach. Only took six months and cruelty I wasn't ever expecting. But every cloud has a silver lining, no? Hah. It's good though. I'm officially done. Currently have three plans in my head, but we shall see which one I actually pursue.

I have two hundred more pages and less than a week to finish the Time Traveler's Wife before I go see it. And with school starting, I highly doubt I will reach that goal. It probably doesn't help I'm reading two other books as well. Damn my ADD.

And my brain is officially not paying attention, damn you Scott Bakula and your awesomeness! XD!

Feel like death, thank you, mr. cold. My best friends at the moment are walgreen's brand day and nyquil, vicks tissues, and an obscene amount of orange juice.

I downloaded a virus about a month ago and my sad little laptop had to be wiped. I failed to back anything up. I suck.

Renewed the lease at the apartment for six more months (thank you full time hours and raise) and will hopefully relocate to a house in January. Which will probably be good. I think the upstairs neighbors attempted to murder each other last night.

I find I have a bizarre addiction to Animal Planet and the travel channel. Mostly It's Me or the Dog and Man v. Food.

Plans to visit a psychic spiritual church seminar thing in the near future, not to mention whatever other adventures I can attempt. Hot air ballooning, white river rafting, and yeh. The brain is now broken. Also not looking forward to Fall semester. I need to stop procrastinating if I ever want to get my degree, but I really do hate school.

P.S. And if you read this, I didn't realize that our relationship was so unhealthy, nor did I consider myself emotionally abusive. Of course, being the person pegged as the abuser, I suppose I wouldn't, would I? I am sorry you felt that way. I am sorry that any insecurities and fears came across in such a negative manner. I guess I'm just sorry, not that it really matters any more.

Time for nyquil induced sleep before I awaken for eight more hours of data entry type work to make me go all cross eyed.

81st Academy Awards

Share
mary todd lincoln in the house
No, I did not watch it. I kept my internet browser up and refreshed constantly until I found out all of the winners. So, why did I not watch it?

Because when Brokeback Mountain lost best picture I vowed to never ever watch the awards again.

But, I'm kind of regretting it. No, not for the apparently awesome acceptance speeches made by Sean Penn and Dustin Lance Black. Not because there is buzz about Hugh Jackman's hosting abilities.

No, I am regretting it because apparently there was clip with James Franco and Seth Rogen reviewing the Best Picture nods in a very Pineapple Express kind of way, and I MISSED IT.

So, seriously, if anyone finds that clip, please please please direct me to it.

Also, I still refuse to see Slumdog Millionaire.

EDIT FOUND IT.

OMG SO FUNNY.

Purchased and just finished watching High School Musical 3 right now. I squealed, I laughed, I cried. I'm a 25 year old person whom, in the past, never really had a predilection for anything bubblegum pop related, but for some reason, absolutely adores this particular Disney franchise.

"Why?" You may ask. Well, it's simple. Or maybe not so simple.

In a world filled with hatred, violence, racist cartoons poorly presented as political satire, and just negativity in general; sometimes it's nice to be immersed in a world where the biggest problem is telling your friends about a musical you've auditioned for, or which college you can or cannot decide to go to. Where love, no matter how corn-ball and cliche it is, will overcome all obstacles. That even places as separatist as American high schools, can overcome the strict clique barriers and all be friends, all find some sort of common ground.

Yes, it's banal, trite, surrealistic, the music is appalling, the storyline is hackneyed at best, and it's absolute proof that the people at Disney are convinced that the average tween/teen is completely unaware of reality. But, at the end of the ridiculously long and cringe-worthy list, these movies and songs make me smile. Make me want to be the all American teenager, even though I'm in my mid-twenties and from Britain.

"Why?" is the question: "Because it's damn fun." is the answer.

Or maybe it's because there are a lot of pretty people, with awesome dancing, and lots of sparkles. XD!

Okay, I'm done.

P.S. (RE: the cartoon) I'm totally with you on this one Rev. Al Sharpton.

P.P.S. I am in love with Keith Olbermann.

I Love You Phillip Morris

As the obsession progresses. I finished the book (and it's the first book I've finished since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). I check google and youtube several times a day to see if there are any updated news posts or videos. I've watched and read everything on the intarwebs that has to do with this movie.

So, I will apologize to bre and jerr now. The second I find out it is in a theatre that is a less than eight hour drive from here, you are both being dragged. Probably separately because I'll want to watch it more than once.

And that is all this post has to say...

I remember reading about this four years ago. Thinking this would be an absolutely amazing movie, but doubtful it would get made.

Well, it fucking DID.



I have NEVER been this excited for a film. No, not even Brokeback. OR Blades of Glory.

Way to combine four things I fucking adore. Jim Carrey. Ewan McGregor. Gay action. And comedy. FUCK YES.

Cut in case anyone thinks this is spoilerish KISS ACTIONCollapse )
