grrr it's probably either wrong or in bad taste to have a creativity in death SGA challenge, isn't it?

I don't know. I was thinking of finding the top ten most obscure ways to die and challenge on it. Say, death by sea urchin. Attacked by a polar bear. Shoelaces. Death by chocolate.

It's totally a mood.

Yes, I know I'm supposed to be doing nanowrimo, but I've been trying to catch up on homework and then I wanted to stare blankly at the wall for a bit for fun. Yes. It was fun.

i miss slumberparties

Okay, so reading snopes in lieu of going to Walgreens, dyeing my hair black, and declarign my personality has taken a turn for the poetic. People. No one wants me to revisit my teen poetry years.

So. I need volunteers. Actually, groups.

Light as a feather, stiff as a board

Slumberparty game for teenage girl--raise your hands, you totally know you played this. I swear I next time I am at a fannish gathering I will hunt down five people and try this one again.

Okay, so from memory, you stretch out the victim volunteer on the floor, whoever she may be, and the rest of you gather around, kneel, do the chant, extend one finger, do the lift, have people later tell you it is Satanism and you are a witch (accused in fifth grade, even, wait, was that just me?). Anyway.

So went to look it up, being in the mood to creepy myself out, adn this is what I found.

You know, I remember doing this unsuccessfully and semi-successfully many time. Except once, we did it, it really worked, and it scared us badly. Good times.

So. Who wants to try it? Or do I need to wait for a con?

(seriously. would people mock me to death if I started recruiting for that? more importantly, would I care? Hmm.)

poor me

this is the list of misery. list. of. misery.

Hi. I have had a very bad two days.

1.) Ipod vanished at some point between when I put it up during class yesterday and coming home.

2.) Laptop is doing frequent blue screens of death and overheating.

3.) Phone bill is far more than expected. Electric bill is somewhat more than hoped.

5. Yesterday, my bus came at the normal time and I got in and sat down and tarted stuyding and looked up and it was going th wrong direction. It was teh right bus, wrong direction. Problem: the bus that goes the wrong direction (north instead of south) doens't *stop* at school. It never has befeore. Which means there was a route change adn I am so glad I looked up. So I stood at a convenience store at night and called eveyrone I knew so someone would pick me up.

I woulnd't have worried if I hadn't been in a short skirt and Boots of Ultimate Not Running. And carrying all my credit cards.

There is a lesson in this: Thursday, I felt weirdly optimistic and good moody. So I thought, instead of carrying on my determined effort to look as slovenly and unapproachable as possible (so as to avoid people wanting to chat) I shall wear my nice black skirt! And this new pretty red sleeveless shirt with the draped neckline. And my black boots of pretty! And do my hair. And wearing make up! And actually remember to refresh my lipstick!

This entire thing is totally a judgment on vanity.

6. Work sucks.

7. I need a new coat and I found this pretty cashmere pea coat of love and I cannot get it now. I actually need more clothes for work period. One pair of pants lost it's hooks and button, one pair has shrunk to too short, and my sweaters are getting old and not pretty.

(Codicil: I feel like blowing the limit on my credit card at the outlet mall tomorrow. Considering the mood I'm in, there's a pretty good chance I'm going to do just that.)

8. Tuition is due on the eleventh. I have absolutely no clue where I'm getting the money for that unless I wreck my careful plan of paying of all my debt and kill off the rest of my savings. that I have made some good inroads in.

(I mean, obviously I am going to get the money. This is not a plea for money or ipods. Wait Does this entry look like a very unsubtle plea for money or ipods? I promise, I am not posting for money or ipods, just free, free sympathy. God. I am paranoid. Moving on.)

9. I forgot to officially sign up for NaNoWriMo. I just realized this. I'm pretty sure due to this, I will blow off for the third year turning that silly script I wrote into a novel. A slashy novel of elves.

(I'm actually only partially kidding. It is not a slashy script of elves. I just really really wanted it to be. There were a lot of weapons involved, though, which amounts to the same thing. It is about Christmas. Obvious connection, I know.)

10. Part of ipod tragedy; my headphones were attached to the ipod.

Collapse )

12. And all of this, for the most part, is either petty, doens't matter, or fixable. I just cannot deal with doing any of it.

It's just been a bad week. November does not look better than October. And I will buck up! I will! Just not tonight. Tomorrow. Using my Lana icon of ultimate pointless whining. There. Better already.
