the odds are pretty good but the goods are pretty odd [03 Aug 2007|05:19pm]
[ mood | artistic? ]

My second smallest toe on my right foot is numb, and has been so for the past two days. Why? No clue. It’s kind of freaking me out. Leprosy begins with loss of sensation in extremities, you guys!

I’m trying to get another job in the government sector, which is frustrating for the same reasons the job itself will be splendid – namely, people do jack all in the government sector. Every time I call people are out for morning tea, or for lunch, or they’ve gone for the day. STOP BOGARTING THE MOOCHING, CIVIL SERVANTS.

Also, at the supermarket cash register I considered impulse buying one of those little Freddo frog sort of Yowie-esque things, that come with smarties or so on inside. Sadly, the woman in front of me took ages to sort out how she was paying and I was given sufficient time to ruminate on the fact that the ones with the little frog faces inside (formerly my favourites) look, in a certain light, like you’re eating little baby Freddos out of their mother’s stomach. Which was a terrible thing to think before lunch.

And that’s the perfect note on which to devote this entry to its actual purpose, ie: wishing sergeant_groove a very happy birthday.

See?Collapse )

Hooray for twenty-somethings! So much hipper than teens.

So who wants to see 1500 prisoners from the Philippines perform Thriller?

Batman: The Dark Knight teaser trailer.

Why So Serious?

And in case you missed it, I Believe In Harvey Dent Too.

The fact that this movie won’t come out for another year yet causes me actual, physical pain.

Oh my God, you guys, Deathly Hallows.

This is basically the culmination of ten years of my life.

I have no idea what to say. I keep forgetting that it’s tomorrow because my brain rejects the whole concept. “Book Seven coming out? No, that is far too awesome to be true!”

AND YET IT IS.

whyyy [04 Jul 2007|03:58pm]
[ mood | horrified ]

It’s seems like all I do is post upsetting pop cultural tidbits. This post is no different.

If you had a childhood (OR A SOUL) you mightn’t want to look behind this cut.

WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOWCollapse )

In case you doubt me, observe.

ETA: YOU GUYS, MY SISTER AND I HAVE WORKED OUT THE EMO ORIGIN STORY. You know how emos ironically like Harry Potter as a cover for their non-ironic love for Harry Potter?

THEY’RE ALL EMO BECAUSE THEY NEVER GOT THEIR HOGWARTS LETTER.

It makes perfect sense! And is a slightly more cheery thought to buck us all up again.

you've got too many shoes (SHUT UP) [20 Jun 2007|07:09pm]
[ mood | irritated ]

I AM FAILING MY WAY THROUGH EXAMS.

Oh man. Bad news all around. 3 out of 4 done and not one well. There only thing worse that realising halfway through your hour-long essay that you’re actually answering the question wrong (Monday’s exam) is walking into the room and realising you’ve brought incomplete notes to an open book exam, YOU MORON (last Wednesday’s).

I do not love life. On the other hand, once it’s over my sister and I are going to watch approximately three billion movies, starting with our beloved Hard Day’s Night.

Speaking of which: this movie poster was, perhaps, photoshopped by Satan?

cut for size, offensivenessCollapse )

Yoko, where are you? Someone needs beating down and I know you’re always up for that.

Nobody move! I've dropped me brain! [24 May 2007|11:02pm]
Internet’s been playing up, thus the radio silence.

So, I just saw PotC 3!

massive, massive spoilersCollapse )

I’ll talk about it more coherently tomorrow (or maybe – likely, actually – won’t), but I just felt like expressing my initial reaction.

Also: is it just me, or do the trailers for OotP make it look… wicked awesome?

so [13 May 2007|02:53pm]
In case anyone who’s on this tiny little flist doesn’t know already, my friend Maryke committed suicide on Friday evening. My apologies for the brevity of the statement.

I keep saying to everyone “it’s so weird, you know?” which is officially the lamest reaction to anything, ever.

Also I’m eating too much and I have a loop of Maryke retelling one of her favourite episodes of At Home With The Braithwaites stuck in my head. “You are so insignificant” indeed.

Um, so I wander downstairs to print things and IOAN GRUFFUDDS is presenting a Logie!

Why was I not informed of this? Where was Jamie Bamber? Why could I recognise him only by the bottom half of his face? (Okay, I know the answer to that one.)

Huzzah for the Welsh!

what the hell is wrong with the "apathetic" star? [30 Apr 2007|09:58am]
[ mood | apathetic ]

Good morning, everyone, welcome to Monday. It’s a tremendous disappointment so far and is unlikely to get better. Assignments? Suck. Exams? Suck. University? Sucks.

:: curls up in foetal position, sobbing gently ::

Although it’s not as bad for me as it is for some. Send good, good, good, good vibrations out to cheatandsteal for her essays. I BELIEVE IN YOU, SMELLY!

Also: I saw a boy would looked almost EXACTLY like Bright from Everwood walking out of the library earlier. Which is exciting enough on its own, but I also saw a boy who looked EXACTLY like Ephram from Everwood (except with a weird haircut) in town a few weeks ago. This, naturally, begs the question: do Fake!Bright and Fake!Ephram know each other? Are there any other fake Everwood characters living in Brisbane? Is one of our suburbs in fact Fake!Everwood itself?

The people want to know!

law is for people who are boring and ugly and serious! [23 Apr 2007|02:06pm]
[ mood | weird ]

LAW IS HARD.

Who could have possibly foreseen this? Oh, right, everyone ever invented. Alas.

My assignments are hard, and also? Boring. I miss you, history! Law doesn’t know what it’s doing! Where are the History Channel documentaries about Hitler? Where are the dodgy, historically inaccurate movies masquerading as a lecture? WHERE IS ALL THE COMMUNISM?

:: deep sigh ::

Anyway. I’m stuck here at university for aaaaaaaaaages. I bought myself some chips at lunch, but the salt hasn’t noticeably improved my temperament, but HOLY CRAP, CRAZY CHRISTIAN LADY WHO THINKS I’M HER FRIEND IS ENGAGED.

WHAT?

Oh man, this is so weird. This is going to end BADLY and ooooh noooo, if her sister bails she wants me to be a bridesmaid. Oh my God.

Okay, apparently her sister is unlikely to bail. But in case? I’m an in case bridesmaid for someone I barely know? For a wedding that is apparently “some time this year” WHAT SORT OF PLANNING IS THAT? What? What? WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO ME?

:: FLEES IN TERROR ::

Okay, so either I hate MSN terribly, or I’m glad that I just had that conversation in a medium that conveys neither my expression or the tone of my voice. That was really random. (I’m using the word random again. DEATH.)

Um... anyway. I had mostly exams last week, and in doing so missed most of my lectures by escaping in order to study. So I have to listen to them on the internet this afternoon, which I hate, but still. At least I can do it in the comfort of my own home, rather than in an enormous lecture hall surrounded by morons who DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO ATTEND, come to lectures to talk through them. Thanks, guys. You’re great.

Okay, this post is going nowhere. I’m too freaked out. I think I’ll go outside and eat some biscuits or something. Soothe my jangled nerves.

Before I go, however, I received a FORWARD today. And it was awful, as always, but! This one was entitled:

You Know You’re A 90’s Kid If...Collapse )

I AM OVERCOME WITH NOSTALGIA.

I leave you now, to search for a slap-wrist bracelet and some butterfly clips. I must accessorise my belly shirt and cargo pants!

I’m in love but I’m lazy [12 Mar 2007|02:09pm]
[ mood | bemused ]

University is melting my brain and it’s only third week, what the hell. I am slowly becoming convinced that the law department is secretly populated by geriatric zombies who cannot feast on anything but puree. It’s the only explanation that makes sense, people. Trust me on this. (I wonder if this means I can sue them for breach of contract – NO NO NO NO DEATH.)

Anyway!

I am aware that right after I pledged to restart my journal it died. Whatever. This is par for the course by now. But the massive hours I’ll be clocking in the university library seem certain to ensure a journalistic revival of some description. Plus, uni = blogging because uni = whining. A delicious equation.

To round things out, I feel I must note that in but two days I will be TWENTY YEARS OLD. 20! Two zero! I’m so old I may as well DIE.

I LIKE TO IMAGINE ME YELLING THIS ENTRY AT YOU ALL [04 Feb 2007|06:16pm]
[ mood | confused ]

JAPANESE COMPUTERS HATE AND THEY WILL NOT STOP TYPIING IN CAPSLOCK!

FURTHERMORE I CANNOT FIND THE APOSTROPHE KEY, WHICH EXPLAINS WHY I AM SUDDENLY ESCHEWING ALL CONTRACTIONS.

SHRINES AND TEMPLES GALORE, TOILETS ARE INTIMIDATING, FOOD IS NICE. EVERYONE SMOKES! WHO KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON THERE.

I AM IN A LOVELY INTERNET CAFE BUT IT IS SO CONFUSING. THE ONLY THINGS I KNOW HOW TO SAY IN JAPANESE ARE [SORRY] AND [THANK YOU], SO WE ARE BASICALLY SUBSISTING ON ELABORATE MIME AND THE GLORIOUS FACT THAT WE ARE BOUND TO FIND SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS ENGLISH IF WE TALK LOUDLY ENOUGH.

HUZZAH FOR CULTURAL IMPERIALISM!
