Nazi-killing field trip :D

So I've been thinking: my new(ish) computer needs a name.

I called the old one "Isami", after Kondou Isami, because it tried its hardest and did its job well, even though it was sort of old and gimpy.

In keeping with the theme, I'm thinking that this one's a "Sano"--young and quick, but a bit of a derp sometimes. Also, huge. It's like... 17 inches across, or something ridiculous like that.

So yes. The computer is now Sano. When he is slow, I will make indulgently grumpy grumblings about Harada-kun being a 'tard again. This pleases me.

...I hope I'm not rambling. Home sick with a fever, so I might be. Sorry.
So hi, f-list!

I'm fairly certain most of you have heard about the recent earthquake in Haiti. And maybe some of you, like me, are looking for ways to help out!

Well, aside from the usual ways--donating money or time to reputable aid organizations like the Red Cross or the United Way, organizing fundraisers in your community, etc.--there's a pretty unique way to help out coming out of fandom, right here on LJ!

help_haiti is a fandom charity auction, where all manner of (not necessarily fannish) goods and services are being offered as donations. The winners donate the amount that their bid was for to an approved charity of their choice, the donors write them fic or draw them art or bake them cookies or whatever, the money goes to help Haitians recover, and everyone wins.

If any of you guys decide to check it out, my offer is here. I'm excited to be participating in this, and I hope that this message is helpful to some of you guys, too!

All You Need

This made my day. Hope it makes at least one of yours :)

I'm sick of your dreadful, speckled mug!

Okay, need to say this before I get in the car with him for four hours and say it to him, which would be a pretty mean-spirited act of filial impiety:

The thing I won't miss about being home is the fact that my Dad is...

-A morning person.
-A loud morning person.
-With a guitar.
-Who gets mad at you for spoiling his fun if you are less than enthusiastic about being serenaded at seven in the goddamned morning after writing all night for the fifth night in a row.

It's sick.

It's also bizarre, because my Dad's a good singer... usually. But either his tone and pitch get substantially worse along with his taste in songs at this hour, or I perceive them as such as a side effect of how bad I want to punch him when he does this and I just fucking want to sleep.

That's right. I long for the peace and quiet of a houseful of theatre majors and Cyrano the Spazzcat. Kill me now.
"Sure," I said. "Nathaniel and Marissa and the baby can have my room," I said. It won't be so bad, sleeping in my sister's room, right?


Somehow, during the negotiation of Christmas sleeping arrangements, I managed to forget that I have so damn much trouble sleeping with someone nearby and with clothes on that I regularly endure the pouty-faces of my girlfriend so I can sleep alone.

Being super-tired and unable to sleep makes me beyond grouchy. Grouchy enough to not care that I got ninja turtle slippers for Christmas, and that my godson's adorable.

...Okay, grouchy enough to almost not care. Still.

Think 6 AM is too early to hit the booze?

ETA: Also got a new camera, which means I finally got the pics off the old one. Might post some after I get some gorram sleep.
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on...

My interviewCollapse )

In non meme-related news, I'm back in MD! Yep. Uh, that's about it. I'm glad not to be at school for a while, it was starting to drive me crazy.


Help Ket waste time!

Hunting With Accordians

Hahaha, I post a lot more to my main journal when I'm procrastinating desperately~

Briefly: Okay, seriously, America, WTF. I love you, deeply, but like...France is probably the one country we haven't gotten into any wars against since, like, BEFORE THE REVOLUTION, and they helped us in the Revolution and we've been allied ever since, and yet when I try to write a paper about US-French relations, I run up against more frothingly nationalistic, "Fuck those bastards" jingoism than I would researching a similar topic for...Oh, say, IRAN. The leaders of whom actively want to destroy us.

*headwall, for EVER* What. The. Fuck. I demand an explanation for this bullshit, world.

You Know I Love My Soylent Green

It has come to my attention that I've actually been keeping up with this journal for two years! Surprised? I am, since I seemed to max out at two entries the previous times I tried getting elljays or similar.

So, in celebration, dear f-list...As thanks to you for sticking around, making me laugh, making me think, whatever it is that makes us friends, I'm opening up shortfic requests. Any fandom I know, either rp I'm in, AU's, crackfic, shipfic, smut, gen, vignettes, you name it. Heck, it doesn't even have to be fanfic--I can make up a 'verse for you. I won't write for characters that I don't know and haven't rp'ed with, and I won't write like...non-con, or things that squick me out really hardcore. But anything else is fair game! Because I love you.

I won't start on them until tomorrow evening, though. That Calc test is in the morning...wish me luck!
