how many husbands have you had? ....mine or other women's?  
Well, I got into Columbia. Looks like, if all goes as planned with housing and financial aid, I'll be spending the next year in the great city of Chicago. I really am making the rounds, aren't I? Maybe I can spend the following year in San Francisco. It's so strange now, to finally have a decision. I've waited so long that it hardly seems relevant anymore. In any event, my therapist will be thrilled. One less thing for me to babble on about. I should probably be more excited, huh?

My exanimation probably has something to do with the fact that I was awake until 10am this morning. Yeah, if ever a line was crossed with the whole sleeping thing, it was today. What was I doing? Well, I guess it's not me. Martha had her very first RP session with Lionel. Oh, god, I was such a an RP virgin, as gingasaur can attest to. I was a nervous wreck, I don't even know why. It ended up being amazing though, because whoever plays Lionel is absolutely brilliant, she is Lionel, down to a tee, it's almost scary. Martha and Lionel, those crazy kids, had an "adult conversation" after hours at the Talon. Appropriate? Not really, because my Martha is still in season four and thus is very married to Jonathan. But they didn't do anything, not much anyway. He mostly talked about why they should and she talked about why they shouldn't. But it lasted a good five hours, in real time anyway. I think I like this RP thing...? Eeeeesh, who am I?

Several weeks ago, I promised a few people I would do a Superman III/Lana Lang picspam, to show all the ways in which original Lana pwns Smallville's Lana. In other words, Annette O'Toole vs. Kristin Kreuk. For some reason, I haven't gotten around to it until now, so here we go.


Lana and Clark meet for the first time since high school, at their reunion, which Lana has organized.


Awe! Teenage!Lana/Annette


Awkward much...?


Lana realzies she is a neurotic mess. She has given the plates to the deejay and is trying to put potato salad on the records. Jealous?


Meet Brad, lecherous drunk who never stops trying to win Lana.


Clark Kent shows off his mad hip dances moves...


Okay, yeah, that's better.


Clark and Lana are really cute, see?


Unlike on Smallville, Clark and Lana actually have...dare I say it...chemistry!


The next day, Clark is Lana's bitch, helping her clean up the gym.


Lana and Donald White, King and Queen of the Prom. Awwww. Then they got married. And then they got divorced.


Clark and Lana begin their long series of witty misunderstandings. "Donald and I split up. Oh, look, there must be gallons of potato salad left. You know what the problem is?" "I don't know, too much mayonnaise?" "Mayonnaise? Why would you say that? Donald loved mayonnaise."


"I don't know, I guess I just feel like I can talk to you..."


Awww, Christopher Reeve, what a dork, I love him.


Clark and Lana go bowling, with her son, Ricky.


But oh boy, look who's here! It's Brad! Oh, man, thank god.


Lana is clearly thrilled by his presence, as Clark is deeply engaged in this game of bowling.


Ricky is being made fun of for sucking at bowling, so Clark sneezes and causes his bowling ball to get a strke. Oh, Superman.


There it goes! It's a bird...


Lana is excited.


Now it's picnic time. In the tallest grass imaginable. Perfect spot.


"Mmm! This pate is really unusual!"


"Oh, Clark, that's Buster's dog food!"  >> I think that moment is reason enough why Reeveverse Clana pwns Smallville Clana.


Ah, Kansas.


Look at him with his sweatshirt around his neck. Oh, how I miss the '80s.


"Clark...can I tell you something...?" "Anything."


".....my oil pen is leaking." wtf, TEASE.


Eyes front, mister!


But wait! What's that, Lassie? TIMMY FELL DOWN THE WELL?


Of course. Ricky somehow managed to pass out in the middle of the tall grass as some massive tractors are coming towards him.


Fear not! "S-s-s-suuuupermannn????" "Yes, it is I."


"MOM, LOOK. IT'S SUPERMAN." (no shit sherlock)


Oh, well, fuck yeah, Superman!


But away he must fly, mere mortals.


"WHERE'S CLARK?" Oh, yeah, he's in this hole. Of course.


"OMG, Superman was just here!" "Oh, pshh, I live in Metropolis, I see Superman everyday."


Later, Superman comes over to chill at Lana's


Lana gets a call and tells Superman that a tracter trailer is a hanging off a bridge and the driver's still in the cab! So, he should probably get going.


"Eh, I always get there on time. Let's relax a little. And marvel at my eye makeup."


Awkward.


"Dude, you need to go save people." "Ugh, FINE, okay."


*leaves*


Then, wearing the most necessary glasses on her head, Lana decides she's had it with Smallville! Humph!



Whatever will she do? Fuck Smallville, get me on the first flight to Metropolis.


"Mom, I think I've got the answer!" "Nobody cares, pack your shit, we're out of this craphole."

Meawhile, in Metropolis...


HEY, LANA, FANCY SEEING YOU HERE.


"Hi, Mr. Kent! You'll never guess who Mom's having dinner with tonight. SUPERMAN!"


"Oh, lol, that's actually why I'm here. Superman told me to tell you he's sorry, but he can't make it. But...would you mind settling for me instead?"


"Any day!" She was never really that into Superman anyway. All that eye makeup. You know.


But wait. Clark has something pretty for you, Lanakins.


SHA-ZAM!


"Superman wanted me to give this to you. "


I think she likes it.


lmao I love how he's like all of the height and she is none of the height, even wearing heels. Sexy.


loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeville.


Oh, shit, BUSTED.


It's Brad!


Fuck you, Brad.


Have a nice day. Love, Superman


Yeah, that happened.


Look who's workin' at the Daily Planet now, bitches! Lana Lang, Perry White, Lois Lane, Clark Kent...gang's all here!


*grins* "Clark gave it to me."


Oh, snap, JEALOUS?


Lana power!


Hey, look at this zippy little new-fangled appliance.


Um. Right, yeah, cool.


"How does this cracka work?"


Stand back, kids. The unnecessary, completely irrelevant appliance has gone haywire.


lmfao. Yeah. OWNED BY THE NEW-FANGLED APPLIANCE. SUCK IT, 1983.


Okay, so. Original!Lana > Smallville!Lana, y/n? Show of hands.



Also, does anyone want to go to Chicago for a couple days in August? I have to go to orientation by myself, and being that I've only been to the city once before, I'd prefer to have a companion of some sort. It'll be fun. A rad city, fun shopping, Lake Michigan, and hopefully a chance to see Michael McKean on stage. Anyone in?

Eh, it was worth a shot.

Thanks, man.

It would be amaaaaaazing if you met up with me in Chicago. We'd paint the fucking town red, dude.

Okay, well. With airfare ($450) and hotel, it's going to be close to the same as Nicaragua, only sooner. I dunno if I cannnn. I really want to though!
Maggieballion on July 9th, 2008 08:22 am (UTC)
Oh my goodness, I love Chicago. It's such a fantastic city. But then again I've only seen a tiny bit of it. But Millenium Park, the downtown area and that big lake are awesome.

I might be in Chicago again next year, sadly not in August though.

So, will you finally have the chance to study something film related on Columbia?
Anoel: alias lena sunglassesanoel on July 9th, 2008 01:53 pm (UTC)
Congrats! That's awesome. Chicago is wonderful. I'm going to be there the 8th through the 15th although I'll mostly be in the hotel having fun.

I really need to see that movie, I still haven't but it goes without saying that Original!Lana wins, no contest.

Congrats on getting into Columbia! You're quite the journeywoman!

Hope you'll get to see MMK en persona! The play just got extended another week, so it's doing quite well!

Cool spicspam. SIII Lana over Smallville Lana any day ;)

I love their little misunderstandings to. When they're bowling Lana says "look, stewed to the gills in the middle of the afternoon" referring to Brad, and Clark thinking she means Ricky says "gee, all he had was chocolate milk" lol.

I thought it was cute the way she was more into Clark than Superman.

Btw, was White really Donald's surname?

I've always wanted to really spend time in Chicago, it seems like an awesome place!

Heyyyy get this, I did my masters at Columbia! (And still totally thought you were talking Columbia University before I got to the line about Chicago. Ha.) What will you be studying? If you need any any any info on the school or the area or the city or ANYTHING, let me know, I'm happy to chat about it. I can give you my YIM if you're a YIM person, or Jillface has it too. But that is awesome.
- she bursts with a kind of madness -: [TWW] CJ&Samillusory_thrill on July 18th, 2008 10:01 pm (UTC)
Ah, yes, Jill mentioned you'd gone there! I'm going to be be studying Screenwriting. What did you study there?

Thanks so muchhhh, I'll probably, definitely take you up on that offer as I've only spent a total of five days in Chicago in my whole life. :-P

I am a YIM person indeed! You can catch me at cajunstyleyo.
senseless things: [CJ] flamingo // so_bambiesquesoaked_in_stars on July 19th, 2008 12:11 am (UTC)
Oh very cool, I hear their screenwriting program is really strong, and what I love about Columbia is that you get so much sort of cross-contamination. You get to be totally hands on and kind of do and study whatever the fuck you want. I studied arts management, emphasis in film and television.

I never expected to miss Chicago as much as I do, so now I will totally just live vicariously through you. I'll definitely poke you on YIM when I see you there, thanks, new frnd!

Congrats! I have another flist friend who will also be starting there in the fall. She's really excited.

Anyways, I changed my (barely) changed my username, so you gotta friend me. :D

I needed to remove a massive amount of people and I didn't want to change my name. A bunch of people had me friended, even though I didn't friend them back and I didn't like the way my userinfo looked that way.

It ended up being amazing though, because whoever plays Lionel is absolutely brilliant, she is Lionel, down to a tee, it's almost scary.

*stalks you in old posts*

Thank you! It's because I am actually John Glover. I just pretend to write letters to myself, and fantasize about being a 25-year-old female in Israel. It's a thing. Don't judge!

Heh. I'm actually trying to read up on Annette and the McKean love. So I don't ask too many daft questions. *will no doubt ask daft questions anyway*

Atta girl! That's exactly what we all should be doing. And pretty much what I already spend my entire life doing.

And I'm always mooooooore than happy to answer questions at all times. :D
lonelywalker: smallville: chloelonelywalker on September 29th, 2008 12:52 pm (UTC)
I read that piece of Annette's you posted - the one about living in Oregon? - Wow. I am ever more jealous that you met her.

I mailed my letter to Glover today. I'm not entirely confident that the Israel post office won't lose it, but hey.

Oh man, yeah. That article kind of changed me life a little bit. Her and her stupid failure first husband. He's only good for the kids he provided her with. But yes, I literally cried the first time I read that. It killed me.

Hooray! It'll alllllll work out.
