For the next seven days, I will be in California.

Among my objectives are meetups, the Zoo of the Province of San Diego, an aquarium or two, The Shawshank Redemption, and Disneyland. Because they have something that until a few weeks ago I could not have here, and to see The Captain is always, always, always better with a friend.

We are here to change the world. If you do nothing else with your life, live by that.

Not every butterfly pulls a hurricane from over China. No one said it had to be major. Big, sweeping changes are principally a matter of timing combined with one's life training suddenly becoming more important. Standing in a deluge with your tongue stuck out, hoping for that one special drop of rain.

Put your tongue back in your mouth. Use it to laugh. Spin until you're dizzy; drown standing up. Know that you're alive.

Then grab a bucket and help the neighbors.

I'm flying, Jack!

Leave a message at the tone.

At the sound of the tone, the time will be...

I should probably actually pack. That might help a lot.

So. Forever ago, I heard some music in the coffee-shop and my breath caught, because it was so pretty. But I never learned the artist or song name. And sometimes it would haunt my dreams.

And then I found Pandora I forget how, and. De-Phazz were really close, but not the song.

It is Bitter:Sweet. As I somehow found out through I-Tunes.

Ohmygod they had an album out just last year and will there be more and oh, it just gets lovelier every time I hear it.

This may be the closest to an extant Splashdown that I have yet heard. Albeit much less rock and much more jazz.

Oh the vocals. Just. Oh.

I have an Itunes card that needs replacing with badass songs of awesome!

What are some of your favorite songs, c. 1980 - 2001?

All genres welcome; vague adherence to the dates preferred.

I listen to everything except Kenny G./Yanni type "easy listening".

(Did you know Sting is "easy listening" now? It was like, to gag. To gag me with a spoon. Like, totally.)

*Ahem.*

Hit me with your best shot; fire away!

What the fuck.

Seriously WHAT THE FUCK.

What. What. What. What.

My brain.

Seriously? Seriously? D=

What the shit.

Jafar vs. Fantastic Four?

DISNEY OWNS WOLVERINE. Okay, whatever, but but but Sabretooth, aaannd and Storm before Halle got ahold of her, and, god, dude, my infancy just ATE my adolescence I AM FREAKING OUT.

Prepare the red matter. Launch the drill. Fuck their defense grids; black holes are magical.

Right, JJ? Right?

WHAT THE FUCK.

Waaay back in, like, March, I was sleep-deprived and hating life from work overload. And some douchenozzle stole my makeup bag. (It was about the size of a big wallet and had mostly non-makeup things inside, like highlighters.)

It also had my USB key inside. Aaaannnd my I-Pod. Fucking thief douchenozzle asshole.

Or. Or. Or so I thought.

I was cleaning my closet for the first time since March (I judge you right back) the better to get rid of things. Since. School is coming and I will have even less of a life than I do now. D:

But. Yeah.

Hello, I-POD. wb, bb sugar, mommy missed you. <3

It was in a box inside a box inside a bin, laying facedown underneath some random Harry Potter crap and a Mew foily Pokemon card. Behold, my precise and utterly logical organizational system.

I need to buy a new charge-synch-cord-thing, because OF COURSE I donated that to Goodwill recently because blah blah I'm not typing it again scroll up. XD

The moral of this story?

Don't ever put your I-Pod in your makeup bag. For serious.

Fortune fled, she stumbled off of heaven's edge... )

I may have to Sendspace it for the simple reason that I appear to own the only copy of Like Before in existence? XD

Ugress - Monochromatic World is the most badass. Narada loves her crew. Much more than is healthy. And as first, he spends a lot of time with her.

Draw me some conclusions, maestro.

Drink your spirits and pray

So uh. I went to make a Trek XI reclist and then realized all the ones I like are dark and fucked up.

Except the obvious Jheti bait Romulan ones. And, well, most of those, too.

I am vaguely alarmed.

Mostly floored by the easy smooth availability of the dark and fucked up, but also vaguely alarmed.

What should I be doing?

Reading "Understanding Social Science Research Methods" and thinking over preparations for abstracting "Elaboration Likelihood Model Factors That Affect Motivation And/Or Ability To Process The Message: Distraction, Repetition, And Rhetorical Questions", in order to produce a six-page critique that's due in about two weeks, WITH accompanying presentation.

What am I doing?

I'm researching Romulan involvement in the Dominion War. And trying to figure out why 40 Eridani is in the Beta Quadrant on some maps and the Alpha in others. (Either the Romulans and the Vulcans are in proximity kinda, or they are not. MAKE UP YOUR MIND, PARAMOUNT. XD)

So. "Research Methods And The Impact Of ELM Interference Factors On Message Transmission: Romulan Involvement in the Dominion War".

Yeah! That'll be a sexy paper. <3

But Jheti, wait! What if he's a Star Wars fan?

Simple: I'm screwed.

I have 50 episodes to watch, in four series, assuming I can even track them all down. The three important ones, I'm positive, and probably the two-parter; the rest are definitely a crapshoot, though I've seen some TAS clips floating around on Youtube. I may be stuck recording *shudder* SpikeTV.

I realized that if I'm going to actually WRITE and FINISH my master plan, instead of letting it become Shadows 2.0, I have to have a reasonable idea of the Romulan history relative to the rest of the Star Trek universe.

Being a TOS Trekker, and primarily a books!only Trekker within the TOS, a lot of this makes me go "huh?", but whatever; TNG/DS9 Romulus is Nero's home environment, so, off to the Youtubes.

Trek XI relevant dates, where available, are underlined and red.

Thus far. Plenty of this goes right over my head, too, but doesn't it make a pretty wooshing noise as it flies by? Mostly thanks to Memory Alpha. )

My laptop appears to be bricked. I do in fact suspect brickification.

As I know more, so shall you.

Thank god I backed my thesis up yesterday.

I think I have a version of the disaster, also, though it's a few months old, and some lolcats.

I am too frightened to pitch any sort of fit.

I ride public transit. For six hours a day. Twice a week; down from thrice a week. I hate it. I hate absolutely everything about it.

THERE IS NO FUCKING BRIGHT SIDE. IT DOES NOT EXIST.

It is very easy for people with cars to tell me how grateful I should be. Sneering wheatgrass cyclists who live eight minutes from their cushy overpaid office job can stick their environmentally friendly transportation right up their low-carb-nonfat cheeks.

No, not the ones on their faces, although that might be fun to watch, too.

Yes, I have met some nice people. I can literally count them on one hand. And I have been riding public transit for FOUR YEARS. That should tell you something.

However. The "have gratitude for all life gives you" types are probably sick of my bitching.

It will not lessen. It will merely go into hiding. It will also become more extensive! As I used to edit the posts for brevity before. These will contain more hatred for humanity.

They will be on a filter.

I swear I really did used to like people and want to help them. City buses do not in fact run on gasoline, but rather ON HUMAN SOULS, which they devour slowly over long periods of time.

Adds? y/n/don't give a shit? Comment, pls.
