I Don't Like This

I like my fall break. I don't appreciate this school thing. I really don't appreciate having to actually pay for my muffin and yogurt as opposed to getting them free with a continental breakfast. Humph.

And I come home to find out that Brooke Shields is preggers and Sulu's gay!!! Shocking!!!

The weekend was good though, we went to Peoria. Quite a pretty little city. And Josh sang there, which was enough to endure it to me forever. *sigh* He's so pretty...

Also reread Bridget Jones's Diary (both of them) in the car. So freakin' hilarious. "Bridget. The baby. It's bawling it's 'ead off!" "Daniel. I'm 'aving my fag!!!" And "I respect you not only as a prime minister, but as a man." HAHAHAHAHA...those are the best books ever. Now I have to watch the movies again, even though they're not as good.

Going to go mourn about my lost opportunity to sleep, okay???

Got a new template...the same as the original TV Watch was...

And a little explanation about last night's was late. I was goofy. And I was on the phone with Mary. That's the only reason that that picture ended up on here. But I can't force myself to take it off... ;)

Have a good Wednesday, CSI:NY tonight!!!

Very Important Question

For the two people who will understand what I'm talking about:

Who thinks that Alan's girlfriend needs to put her extensive economic and political background to use and join the peace corps and live someplace far, far away for the rest of her natural life? Anybody? It's her duty to humanity, for heaven's sakes...

I didn't come up with this---some other crazy person on the boards did. But I agree wholeheartedly.


They are worse than the plauge. Every single frickin' teacher decides that the two weeks at the end of October are their time to work out any sadist ideas they may have and torture poor, unsuspecting students. (Well, not too unsuspecting, as they are listed in the syllabus, but still...)

I'm now eating yogurt that I think was open in an effort to get poisoned and die before I have to take my art midterm in fifteen minutes. At this point, unless it's cyanide or the like, I'm not thinking it will work. At best I'll just start seizing during the class, and that would just be embarrassing.

Note: Hitchcock week starts tonight on TCM. YAY!!!!

Dead Poet's Society...

...pretty much sucks. Not the whole thing, but the one part that I don't want to give away for people who haven't seen the movie. But for those who have, doesn't that suck??? I thought so. But the cute end part where they all stand up on their desks and go "O Captain, my captain" was worth it... of course, I have inadvertantly aquired three dollars worth of overage fees on that DVD, so I'm not entirely sure that it was that cute... :P

Josh sang the National Anthem last night at the first World Series game. Even though they took House and Arrested Development from me, they let Joshie sing. Baseball is now okay in my book. I didn't get to see it, but there are clips out there on the internet. I highly suggest it, as Joshie was wearing an adorable little jacket and scarf with adorable hair. I'll post a picture as soon I can find one.

Let's see, not much going on...should be studying for my art history midterm, but find stalking various actors a way more interesting way to spend the evening. My dad and brother are watching ROTK, but it's the gross Shelob the Killer Spider part that makes me rather ill. Hmmm. Maybe I'll go back in for the part where Aragorn goes "My friends, you bow to no one." *tear* Best part. Not really. The part where he sees Arwen and pounces on her was pretty good, too. And the part where Frodo sees everybody in the fellowhship (except Boromir, who was unfortunately killed and then kissed by Viggo Mortensen. Lucky bastard- it doesn't matter which one, really...). I lost a contact lense during that part when I saw it in the theater. I'm a mess at tear-jerkers. Really. I don't cry in real life, but give me a movie with something abandoned and I'll be bawling.

Went to Starbucks with Mary and Colleen today...pumpkin spice lattes are da bomb. They taste like melted pumpkin pie but with caffeine---how do you get better than that??? Ridiculously overpriced at $3.90 for a grande, but almost worth it.

Final note before I go attempt to be a good student and study the Paleolithic era artifacts, everyone must watch CSI: Miami tomorrow night. Apparently, the woman that Horatio has been dating (!!!) turns up dead!!!! *gasps* This one I've gotta see...

O Happy Day!!!

It is a glorious day in TV Land, children. Almost enough to make me forget that House is MIA for the third week in a row and Arrested Development is being pre-empted by baseball. And that's no mean feat, let me tell you.

The reason for our jubilation??? The first season of CSI: NY was released on DVD today. (Picture choirs of angels singing now please...) This means I can watch Flack throw a rapist against a wall any time at my convenience. And listen to him talk about his character on the little documentary. Hehehe... :)

The commentary was really interesting, too. Apparently, that first scene in Blink when Mac is sitting in the church in front of the Blessed Mother statue was Gary Sinise's idea, because he thought this was how Mac would deal with things. How sweet is that??? More reason why he should get together with Stella rather than the whore from the crime scene last spring. Sheesh.

Anyhoodles, people should go buy this. Best forty five bucks I've ever spent.

This is my response to moody song lyrics...

...posted on blogs. They bug the hell out of me. So you're getting nineteenth century Russians, darn it... :) No, really, I just really liked this quote...

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

It's Official

I spend too much time in hospitals. :P

Totally ripping off Imladris' post, but I found this quote on a website, and it kind of sums up how I'm feeling abou this week... "There are so many different ways lives work out, so many stories, and every one of them is precious: full of joy and heartbreak, and a fair amount of situation comedy. "Sean Stewart, Perfect Circle, 2004

Funniest Thing Ever

My personal favorite...

We can now add...

...Maria Bello to my List of Hated Women. Seriously. Johnny. Viggo. Sean. And she threatens to leave/actually leaves every single one of them. *cough*whore*cough*

2nd Post Today

And there will probably be more. I have an hour and a half with nothing to do. Except annoy you all. :)

Anyhoodles, art history was awesome. Maybe it was because it's Friday, and we turned in our super-freaky long papers that were bugging me, and that I had 16 oz. of caffeine in my system, but I think it was mainly that the whole class was pretty much devoted to Troy. Yes, the movie.

Okay, not really, but the whole class made me think about it. The first picture we looked at was a vase of Achilles killing some guy. Which, of course, made me think (and almost exclaim) "Take it, it's yours!!!!!!!!!!". Hehehe...

Then we did about ten slides on Odysseus, which made me first think about Colleen's hilarious blog post (it's been six months and I'm still laughing), and then pretty quickly we moved on to the upstanding, warm and cuddly Odysseus, which, as I'm sure Colleen and Mary could attest too, led to twenty minutes of fun little fantasies. *sighs*

And finally we saw a picture of Pericles, who was wearing those Greek helmets that Brad Pitt sported in Troy. And the prof even brought it up, because her daughter was in the room while she was putting the powerpoint together, and said that the picture looked just like Brad Pitt. :) Which, of course, made me think of, "I know this is wrong, but...". Although I'm not entirely sure how this little girl knew it looked like Brad Pitt in Troy, because she's only like nine, but whatever. Still good

And this doesn't have anything at all to do with Troy or Odysseus, but it was funny. The prof was telling this hilarious story about how she went to Florence with her best friend when they were in college, and they went to see the David. Well, I can't really repeat the whole thing, but it was hilarious... Suffice to say that the prof was standing there in awe, and her friend suggested that maybe the statue wasn't quite as anatomically accurate as it could be and therefore maybe shouldn't be quite as revered. Okay, you kind of had to be there, but it was so funny.

Okay, gonna go be serious for a moment and finish Latin...yeah, or not...

Watch for something up on TV Watch in the next hour, okay???


Conquered the funerary cloth of Isetnefret!!! Am feeling rather good about self. Unfortunately, not feeling so good about latin. Was up until eleven thirty last night doing sentences before finally throwing hte book in a corner and going to sleep. As result, still have three sentences left to do. Fortunately, do not have business law this morning. Yay! Long break!!!

(Side Note: Just realized I sounded like Bridget Jones there...sorry...)

(Other Side Note: OMG, there's this guy who totally looks like Andy Roddick sitting across the room at one of the computors. Hair and everything. Hmmm...)

However, because I conquered Isetnefret (duh, she was the second wife of Ramsesses the second...*eye roll*), I had time to do absolutely nothing else yesterday except errands.

Had to wake up tres early to drive my sister to school and take my mom to the doctor. Doesn't that sound like fun??? Then I had to got to the library, where I was a persona non grata, and pay off my ELEVEN DOLLAR FINE!!!!!!! Can you believe that??? I mean, I knew I was irresponsible, but that's bad even for me! I'm pretty sure they were going to start sending armored trucks to my house. And now I have no cash. Bummer. After paid fine, though, I was able to order "Don't Say a Word"...which almost makes up for the lack of money. Almost.

It's finally cold!!! After like four months of this eighty-degree crap I finally woke up yesterday morning and my hair wasn't a ball of red fuzz!!! I'm so freakin' happy!!! It makes everything seem better, doens't it? LIke I can do anything as long as I'm not sweaty and uncomfortable.

And saw a chiropractor yesterday. I'm flexible. See, all that money for gymnastics lessons paid off, Mom. :)

And a little thank you to Mom--- je 'preciate being able to listen to music!!! And I know it's not like you need any more othings to worry about!!! Love you!!!

Breaking News Flash!!!!

This is bigger than Britney's baby!!! Katie Holmes is pregnant!!!

TomKat's having a baby!!!!!! I'm sure her Irish Catholic parents at home in Ohio are thrilled to death about this!!!!

Procrastination, Part III- The Morning After

Wrote a grand total of three words last night. Couldn't even come up with a frickin' title. And it's not like I'll have any time to do anything today. Or tomorrow. Maybe I'll do it during the night tonight. My writing always looks better during the night. Ugh. I'll be so happy when this week is over. Actually, I'll be happy when I get to school on Friday and turn that paper in. Because then I just have art and accounting, as law was cancelled, and I'm thinking I'll be skipping out on latin. Eh, what are you gonna do??? Family is way more important, right???

Did you know that St. Matthew is the patron saint of accountants??? As in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John...the big ones. Which I guess makes sense (as my mother pointed out to me in a lovely e-mail this morning) because he handled the apostles's money. I'll bet Jesus didn't make him do adjusting/closing entries...

The reason I'm harping on the patron saint of accounting is that I have a test in an hour and a half. That I'm totally gonna fail. This is the difficult multiple choice part, too. Bugger. Hate accounting. Numbers and I just don't mix.

Going to go search desperatly for something else to do...oooh, updated my other blog with stuff about last night's and comment, please!!!

Procrastination, Part II

*looks at ceiling*


Is a beautiful thing. It makes you feel all warm and cuddly. And then lonely and stressed. But warm and cuddly first, which is totally the important thing. And Boston Legal's on. How can I be compelled to write about burial cloth of Isetefret when Boston Legal's on. Grrrrr.

Monday, Monday...

...I feel all "Mamas and Papas" here, and not because of the fact that I've had "Make Your Own Kind of Music" stuck in my head for the last week and a half because of Lost. Damn J.J. Abrams... Rather, because it is a Monday, and I really don't like those. Especially when they're supposed to be unbelievably, unseasonably warm and will surely cause my hair to frizz. Or when I have a paper to write and really don't want to think about that. Even less when I have an accounting exam in three hours and don't really feel like reviewing. What kind of sadist gives you an alphabatized trial balance??? That's not GAAP!!!! Bugger.

Anyhoodles, did some scouting around while my notes were taking forever to print, and discovered that North Country opens in two and a half weeks. And then fired off appropriate e-mails to the appropriate parties. I totally feel like we should support this movie. Sexual harrassment is one of my favorite causes. I mean, I have other causes, too..."I stand with Josey," Hehe...yeah...

I should probably go do something constructive, like finish my bagel, but maybe I'll put something up later. And CSI:Miami is on tonight, so expect a review tomorrow sometime. I do have to run errands all day, though, so it could be a little bit later.

Start commenting!!!! I'm getting lonely!!!!!
