Hey kids,

Did a small friends cut. If you were cut, it's not because I don't like you, or I think you're boring, or anything of that nature. If it happened, it was either because we don't talk very often, we no longer really have anything in common, etc. I'm the kind of person who just piles on the friends and hopes for the best and I very rarely do cuts, so let's face it -- if I felt we weren't really clicking anymore, chances are you were feeling the same way too. If you don't feel that way and you think I'm totally false, go ahead and drop me a line and probably we can figure something out. This was really hard, because there are some of you that I've been friends with for years, but it made the most sense. So, I'm sorry about that.

Anyway, I hope there are no hard feelings and such. Good times were had by all.

Anyhow. Last night was both amazing and horrific. Horrific due to the Great Bug Invasion of '08. It's almost as if all the bugs in the world waited until the moment my mother skipped out of town to take over my entire house. And if you know me, you know my bug phobia is irrational to the point where I've had to (and continue to) seek professional help. Fortunately, Brendan and Kevin were here to save me for the most of the night. But they left around midnight, leaving me alone with Jess, who is almost as bad with her bug phobia as I am. Around 2am, we took a food break from watching Waiting for Guffman, and found ourselves trapped in the kitchen for over an hour, sitting on counter and standing on chairs, when the most enormous fucking centipede of all lives made its presence known. It was one of the most horrible experiences of my life. So now I'm afraid to leave my room basically. And I don't think I will until Thursday, when annasedlak</lj> and I go to NYC to get our John Glover on. This fear is really way too crippling to be healthy. Fortunately, Jess and I still managed to have the best time ever.

Who's ready for a Lois Lane picspam? I know, I know, you don't care, but you should because IT'S LOIS LANE LOVE WEEK. Because this picspam is gonna be awesome, folks. Humor me. I think my icon pretty much says it all.

I love Lois Lane and here's whyCollapse )

Just kidding, I'm still here. This morning the health center provided me with all the drugs in the world, so although I may be a little bit loopy, I don't feel like I'm on my deathbed anymore. Thank you to those of you who wished me well, and pshh to those of you who didn't. I think I'm finally ready to talk about the scarring experience that was Sunday's Brothers & Sisters now, but it's going to be a lot less of a commentary and a lot more of a...rant/explication of my own bafflement. 

At some point this week, I feel there will be a fairly long Decision '08 post coming your way. But I want it to be coherent, so I'm waiting until I'm not hocked up on meds. Meanwhile, this article seems to think that Sally Field & Burt Reynolds are among the best romantic comedy pairings in film, listed alongside the likes of Katharine Hepburn & Spencer Tracy and Woody Allen & Diane Keaton. lol...?

I had a dream last night that I was getting married to some fairly rich guy, who was a family friend of Sally Field's so she was there, and then suddenly annasedlakand I were in some kind of underground tomb trying to find a body, and then it turned into a field trip with all my favorite teachers from high school. And then somehow my ex-best friend Betsy (who I recently started talking to again) fell off, like, a hundred-story building because I threw a Hostess cupcake at her. All this medication is really getting into my head, I think.

Rating: PG-13 (for religious imagery, possible sacrelige)

You're supposed to post them and link them to your table pretty much as soon as you write them, as it is a challenge and whatnot, so sorry if I'm bombarding you with fanfic in the coming weeks. But you know, for those you who don't care, the computer gods have provided you with the power to scroll, so use it.

I've never really been one to associate lj with fanfiction, except in dire circumstances, but it seems to work quite well for others, so I might as well try it. I've been having trouble with ideas and motivation lately, so I've decided to join one of those goal-oriented challenge communities. I'm claiming Jack/Irina of Alias at 100_prompts because they're awkward and fascinating and would seem to be a good match for a challenge of this nature. I'll be posting the finished products here in my journal, whether or not any of you really care, because it brings me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. So, you know, if these things mean nothing to you, feel free to skip on by, no hard feelings.

Here's hoping this works out for me.

Hey, I've only done one of these in, like, four years of lj-dom, so I think I reserve that right. Things are just getting a little too unwieldy and I adore you all immensely, but I only want people here who also adore me immensely and I haven't been feeling the love lately. It only makes sense. And no, this screencap has absolutely not.one.thing. to do with what's happening right now, but it's the first one to come up on my random shuffle, so it's here.

Comment if you would like to continue being on my friends list and whatnot. Yes, I know, some of you are on vacation for the holidays and whatnot, I'm not going to cut you. But the rest of you...I know it's annoying and degrading and puts you in a pissy mood to have to do it, but speak now or forever hold your peace.

Matthew Rhys, Sally Field, and Dave Annable working the picket line

SO.CUTE.FOREVER. In other news, I love my new screenplay like whoa crazytimes. It fills me with feelings of elation like never before. I haven't felt "elated" in such a long time. And I hate my Comp professor. She's like, "Okay go prepare a presentation and write a rough draft for Monday, bye." Nope. Also, FOUR DAYS UNTIL THANKSGIVING BREAK.
