Behold the Wonders!  
Behold the wonders of Tierfal's Thursday, that is! >D


Absentee ballots for the win.

Voting is sexy and everyone should do it. Except those loony-scary right-wing psycho-bigots who believe that homosexuality is a choice and a basis for discrimination.

In other news, it rained today. Not much, but a little, so there was much wet and damp. FINALLY, October. Yeah, I was getting a little sick of seventy-five and cloudless well into my autumn, thanks. XD

I am teh uber-excitedz to go hang out with my bb eltea tomorrow (hence another short period of mysterious LJ absence, though rest assured I'll be diligently stalking you all when possible), when we shall gorge ourselves on candy and suchlike. I love Halloween to death; dress-up never got old for me.

Nonetheless, I caught myself wishing it was Christmas again, and not just because I want my damn month off already knthnxplz. I want scarf-requiring frigidity and misty breath and that weird December aura of love and joy and whatever else Hallmark encourages as it undermines. XD I can't get over the sentimental aspect, more than anything else... I want gingerbread and Christmas cookies and Christmas lights, oooh I'd forgotten those. God, I love Christmas lights.


NaNo is probably going to be NaNot. Or more like NaCheat. I think I'm going to shoot for a grand-total-sum of fifty thousand words after all, refusing to differentiate between projects, because I have a ton of stuff I've begun and want to finish and am unwilling to put off for a whole month. Shame on me. XD

Speaking of things that are requiring of their flourishing finishes, the end of The End Is Near is near. (SEE WHAT I DID THERE? OH, SNAP!) As always with projects this size, I'm really excited and also kind of sad. I've gotten really attached to these incarnations of the characters, and we've had some very good times together. And some miserable times, and some emo times, and we've wasted a damn lot of binder paper. I don't know if I'm ready to be done yet...

...which is what sequels are for. >D

I love how I always plan for sequels before I'm even done with the originals. I are dorkus.

Speaking of TEIN, I encountered another amazing pun today (er, TEIN is riotously full of them). The other day I kept meaning to mention the first. I saw this guy with a shirt with the state of California on it, anthropomorphized and shrugging, with the statement "Earthquakes -- not my fault!"

Today my history teacher said, "Carolingian Christianity, en masse...", and I was like LOL! 8D


Speaking of history (hot damn, I am on a segue REIGN OF TERROR), my teachers are absurdly unpredictable this semester. I turned in what I thought was an A+ midterm to my Shakespeare teacher and got back a B+. And I turned in what I thought was a middling B midterm to my history teacher and got an A-. What?! EPIC FAIL! Especially since I'm taking this history class Pass/Not Pass, which means I only need to get a C-, which means I'm conflicted, because I have until tomorrow to change it back and take it for a letter grade again, which might be a bad idea, but if I can blow off the midterm and then get an A-, maybe I should shoot for it, but then I'd feel obligated to work much harder...?


Speaking of things that are stupid, I actually made a list of all the things I was going to post about while I was sitting in history writing TEIN paying a great deal of attention to other things than just the inadvertent puns. And it has now run out of items.


Meet my new icon. 8D

...blame Jon Bon Jovi. And the fact that Matt is as hot as hell in summertime. Really. Show me cowboy!Matt, and I will show you a joygasm.

(I'm working on integrating cowboy!Matt into something and soon, if you were concerned. Wish I wasn't serious. ...who am I kidding; that is a TOTAL LIE because I love it. XD)

That is a right shitload of tags if I've ever seen one. 8D

Now I need to go type up all the TEIN I wrote in class so that eltea doesn't decide to refuse to feed me this weekend or something. D:

...nah, she'd get a much more creative revenge. :P The mind boggles. XD

Feeling: amusedamused

Hee hee, it was excellent. XD Or I hope so; I was rushing to get it done between classes so I could jam it in a mailbox, 'cause it's only got a couple days to get there. XD

I can't talk to my dad about politics; he's very socially liberal, but he doesn't believe in global warming and gets very snarky about economics and stuff. XD

There is some kicking of myself into gear required, though I've been able to write a whole 1500-word chapter in a single day three days this week... which was not too bad! XD

Yeah, I'm excited about Halloween (today, hahaha XD), and excited about Thanksgiving, and excited about Christmas, and excited about not going back to school until almost a month after Christmas, and, and, and... YAY. 8D

I wrote a Christmas fic during a heat wave the first week of September, so I totally feel you. :P

Haha, eltea and I have a six-book series we've written... some... of... We probably have more than six books' worth of us playing with the characters in scene format, but that won't exactly work. XD

No Halloween? D: LAME! XD

It's one of my favorite holidays -- it encompasses two things I never get tired of, dress-up and candy! 8D

OMG I'm in love with you icon! : ) But yeah, have fun with Eltea. I'm sure a wonderful time will be had by all. Those puns made me laugh. : ) Absentee ballots are quite wonderful. I filled my ballot out quite a while ago, 'cuz I could and sent it off. I try to only think about one holiday at a time. So after tomorrow I'll be really excited for Thanksgiving. : ) Yay turkey and lots of good food, but boo for upstate New York. XP Oh well. Halloween's tomorrow!!! :D :D :D

Hee hee, hooray! ^^ I needed a Matt icon desperately. :P

A wonderful time WILL be had by all. Except for the chocolate, which will get shredded by our stomach acids. >D

Yeah, I'd had the ballot sitting on my desk for literally two weeks, and yesterday I was like DAMN IT THERE ARE ONLY FOUR POSTAL DAYS LEFT, so I made myself get around to it over lunch. XD

Hee hee, I think I just like holidays too much. :P

I almost wish I was going to NY. I don't really, but I've always wanted to see it. XD My mom lived in Rochester for a while... /random fact...?

IT'S TODAY HAHAHA. I need sleep. Shit. XD
Marmmarmaladefever on October 31st, 2008 06:57 am (UTC)
I will miss you in your absence! I will be updating 8&8th tomorrow!

Good luck with the NaNoWriMo! Wri' mo', yo! (In this example, "mo'" is meant to be read as "more," rather than "month.")

It's late and I feel incoherent.
Vitamin Ctierfal on October 31st, 2008 08:58 am (UTC)
OOH that will give me something to look very much forward to when I get back! ^^

Hee, I am mo' impressed wit yo slang, yo. Mo' taken to mean "most." ...I think...?

I know the feeling. XD

Christmas! Yay. The holiday season begins with Halloween :) We love it almost as much as Christmas... but seriously, candy cannot compare to the presents.

Voting. Yes! Matt Icon. Adorable!

LOL! NaNot! NaCheat... me too. And thank you for coming up with such a witty sounding way of just saying no to Nano :)

They had the Christmas decorations in the same aisle as the Halloween stuff at Walgreens last week. I was like, "Can't you guys at least wait until November...?" XD

I love Halloween, but Christmas definitely has advantages all its own, yes. ;)

Haha, hooray! Rebellion against the tenets of NaNoNess! XD
