Going MIA from LJ for a day reduces the yield of in Inbox by at least three-quarters.


Easter candy was 75% off. Two boxes of five each cost me a grand total of twenty-four cents.


And I got an A on my paper on Under Western Eyes, meaning that I don't need to write a second paper in that class. FUCKYEAHPLZ. Only two papers and three finals and I'll be out of this shit. >D

One of those papers is due next week, however. Houston, we have a problem.

At least I re-borrowed M. Butterfly from the library so that I can write about it. I intend to buy it, but... notritenao. Fill in reason of choice.

(Correct answer was q. excessive laziness, if you were curious. XD)

Today (yesterday, before midnight) my sister is fourteen years old. She is significantly more awesome than I was at fourteen. SIGNIFICANTLY. For one, she's amazingly funny; and for two, she doesn't give a shit what people think of her. XD

It's very, VERY odd to me, however, that she's the same age as a few of you who will here go incognito in the interest of pedo prevention. I dunno. It's just strange. Your internet presences are not like her internet presence, and it always gets me to wonder what it would be like to lock you all in a room and see what came of it.

She wrote fanfiction a while ago, actually, though I think she's mostly lost interest -- for The Backyardigans, which is the greatest show in ever.

I had "Dragon Mountain" stuck in my head earlier and ended up listening to like an hour and half of Backyardigans music accordingly.


Really, though, the Mighty Knights episode had a huge influence on the brigits_flame entry that I'll be linking to once I have half a brain to edit with.

Back on topic, I remember when that child came home from the hospital. I remember holding her for the first time.

I was wearing my corduroy jumper (not the Brit-English jumper) with the red-checkered apple on it.

As you can tell, at six-and-a-half years old, I was already destined to be a Death Note fangirl.

So... the basic story of today is that I got home at about eleven and soon after started making icons.

Many icons.

Almost a hundred icons.

Merlin icons.

Oh, yes.

It only took... seven hours.

Hey, man. Hey. They're pretty. And they go nicely with the icons I made the other night, because 109 is a lovely total. 8D

So I'll put those up in this hizzouse when I'm not feeling quite so insufferably lazy.

Pssh, like that'll ever happen. XD

Post-icon-fest, I went and saw the weirdest frigging dance show in the history of mankind, because I had to as an assignment for my acting class. IT WAS WEIRD. Minimal noise-music and lots of ballet-ish stuff and... weird. O_o

That's pretty much the summary of it.

Tomorrow is Cal Day. Which means School Show-Off Day. I bet I can find some free shit.

If I even get up before it's over, anyway. XD

Have some more "Fifteen": Karma. I wrote another of them yesterday, such that I only have two prompts left to fill in. They're tricksy ones. I'm stirring some ideas around. *blows on spoon and tastes*

That will be all for this evening. ♥

Feeling: sleepysleepy

I get frightened to leave my inbox for more than a day or two. Inputting the password and scrolling through the endless unread alarms is done with caution. I'm afraid it'll eat me otherwise. XD

Still though, yummy candy! I like free cheap stuff x3

Congrats on your paper! :D

And wow, that's a lot of icons *______* Look forward to seeing them ;D

Oh, I check my email a zillion times. I just get lazy about replying to LJ messages as they arrive and let them stack up indefinitely. And FF.net reviews are even worse. XD


Thanks! :D

I will exhibition them as soon as I am less lazy. :D
Rex: DN - matt + stfuicequeenrex on April 19th, 2009 04:10 am (UTC)
Same, and I'm all "Oh crud, why didn't I do this sooner?" and ultimately lose sleep. 8D

My life, you have encapsulated it...! XD

Oh, sup your sister. 8D Represent!

I've always wanted to try peeps. One day... *nods vaguely*

Congratulations on your paper!

Oh, Merlin!!! IT'S COMING TO TV HERE SOON!!! The adverts looked awesome. 8D *reminds self to check when it's coming*
Vitamin C: Arthurtierfal on April 19th, 2009 12:56 am (UTC)
I'll convey the sentiment! XD

I should send some to you and to jenwryn. Though they're not, like, really good; half the fun is that they're shaped like chicks. XD

Thanks! 8D

It's coming to TV soon here, too! I just perved it online because I cannot wait for such things. >3

And it's fantastic. Like, really. Like, Arthur/Merlin eye sex in every scene and you can ship frigging everyone with frigging everyone. XD

Have you ever tried putting peeps in the microwave? VERY entertaining.

Your sister sounds awesome!
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on April 19th, 2009 12:58 am (UTC)
I haven't! XD

I wonder if anyone has made s'mores with them. That would be pretty legit. XD

She is awesome indeed! ^^
I MUST: Hands Off Lsabriel75 on April 18th, 2009 12:25 pm (UTC)
A's on papers... what a lovely start to an other-wise unschooled day :)

Happy Birthday to the sis. Significantly awesome is relative, you know? As cool as she sounds, and the fact that she doesn't care what others think and feels comfortable in her own skin which is truly remarkable for her age, I still imagine you and eltea together were quite an awesome pair.

Cheap, discounted candy FTW...

Uhm... that's all folks!
Vitamin C: Mello - Reasonabletierfal on April 19th, 2009 01:00 am (UTC)
\o/ And my stress level went down by a considerable percentage, which is never bad. XD

Hee, I'm trying to remember how eltea and I were at fourteen... I know that I, at least, was very disoriented, very impressionable, and more than a little bit OMG BOIZ. XD

I will have to look into that; I will very likely come squealing to you with the results. XD

There's something about it that is... absolutely singular. ^^
marissaabitofadork7 on April 18th, 2009 03:59 pm (UTC)
Your sister sounds awesome, much like myself, lol. XD

And, one of the joys of having a later Easter means more candy, for less! It's great; we always get Easter candy on sale. Which means more chocolate.

I like chocolate. XD
Vitamin C: Improving Lifetierfal on April 19th, 2009 01:10 am (UTC)
I have definitely noticed similarities. ;)

Haha, it's brilliant!! 8D

Chocolate is my life. :P
marissaabitofadork7 on April 19th, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC)
Yes. Give her a belated happy birthday from me, will you? Gotta remind her that awesome people must stick together...awesomely of course! XD

It is.

Yours and mine both. XD
Marm: eyemarmaladefever on April 18th, 2009 05:00 pm (UTC)
24 cents? TWENTY-FOUR? Oh, must look for freakishly cheap candy when I next go grocery shopping. By the way, when you say you buy peeps, it sounds like you're in the human slave trade market. Hmm.

I remember turning fourteen. I had to postpone my birthday party because I hurt my ankle and figured I probably couldn't ice skate on it.
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on April 19th, 2009 01:12 am (UTC)
I did a double-take looking at the receipt. XD

And you know how I am about human being trafficking. I mean, really. 8D

I think my last birthday party was when I turned twelve. It was a little bit of a fiasco. XD

Oh dear dear dear. :P I'm really just so happy I have no dietary restrictions whatsoever -- no kosher, no food allergies, nothing. It allows me to put stuff in my mouth without even asking what it is. XD

Thanks! 8D And omg, hang in there. O___O

Haha, yeah. It's just... a little strange to think that people who could be my sister's classmates are hanging out online, and I'm getting into conversations with them, and so on. XD
I MUST: LisLonelysabriel75 on April 19th, 2009 12:46 am (UTC)
Oh I forgot! Backyardigans make my day too :) Love the music and dance moves in the Mission to Mars episode best methinks.
Vitamin C: Charles - Bluetierfal on April 19th, 2009 01:25 am (UTC)
Ooooh, I'm fond of that one. :D And have a Mission to Mars poster on my wall, ehee. :3 I think my favorite thematically is Samurai Pie, and as far as music, I'm torn between a bunch! XD
(Anonymous) on April 19th, 2009 01:12 am (UTC)
I <3 you, Matt~~
Those Peeps...Jesus, I don't even know what they look like, but I will soon, and I intend on buying them, haha.
Woot woot, I remember hearing about Death Note approx. five years ago. And then I remember telling myself, "I'll read it someday."
And yes I did.
Death Note fangirls, unite! (And then millions of girls will trample over, haha).

No worries! XD

You've never had Peeps? DDD: They are like... so American it's frightening... XD

I hadn't even heard of Death Note until... basically last summer. XD

We do the trampling thing well, don't we? XD

Yay for your A!

Yay for Peeps!

Yay for overload Merlin iconz!

Yay for you not being MIA anymore! XD
