LOST.

Short, sweet and relatively unspoilery. Just your basic Wednesday night snark with the roomie and I… *Locke picks up Charlie’s L* mattierobertson: He’s using his amazing hobbity trail-leaving skillz! Except, y’know, wrong hobbit. giddyupnow: It’s probably on his resume. “Good at being kidnapped.” He’s conveniently travel-sized!

It’s all sticky.

My Milton professor is slightly on the wacky side. I’ll explain why she’s called crazy dog lady one of these days, but yesterday’s class was particularly surreal. “This was a treatise about religious tolerance, but only to a certain extent. It was like saying that we all have a piece of the Truth to contribute, right, but if you let everybody come along to the party, how do we know that somebody isn’t bringing a piece of Something Really Wrong as well? Like, well… something really bad. Like… hmm… no, not that… or that… help me, people, what’s really evil?” …

Boring school talk. Skip freely past.

Wow, okay. Just finished both of my finals for summer sessions classes and am feeling pretty good about how I did. Even the Chaucer one, which I was kinda antsy about, since I hadn’t actually read any passages out of the original text, just in translation from an online version. Having no book and all. Luckily, you just can’t require as much work out of students in a 6-week summer course as you can in the same class over a whole quarter. So no Middle English oral exams for me! Whew. Though our professor did look a little disappointed at …

Cursed be ye!

Guess who just skipped away from work today with an armload of Pirates of the Caribbean loot, including the double-sided four-paneled promotional movie poster that takes up a whole wall? *g* I might just have squeaked like an overly-excitable terrier this morning when I saw somebody walk by with a rolled-up poster, so next thing I know, the guy is coming back with a couple more and plopping them at our station with a “shhh!” and a grin. *does happy dance* It’s ever so pretty. And large. Now, if only I could figure out where to hang it…

Surreal Memory of the Day

This past weekend. Shopping in the dealer’s room at the con for slash zines for my sociology professor. “Hello, ma’am… I’m looking for an early edition Kirk/Spock. Something with illustrations, please. On a desert island.” *confers for a bit* “Or a cave. Wounded in a cave is okay, too.”

If I have to read one more essay on 17th century metaphysical poetry, I will hurl myself off a roof. I mean it. Sure, the flying monkeys always manage to catch me, but that doesn’t lessen the intent any. Yeeearrrrgh. Mumpfh.

Hehehehe.

Maybe it’s just that I’ve been up since 3AM, but Elizabethan fanmail, complete with meter and rhyme, just seems to be the funniest thing in the world right now. I want to start a petition that it come back in vogue. *I’d* do it. You should, too. It would make life ever so much happier.

Return of the wacky comp lit class.

Two little excerpts from my Comp Lit/Sociology class, which I’m really going to just start calling Slash 101. Because it is. And my professor seems fully intent on converting each and every last student by the end of the quarter. Hee. Second week: “So if you ever go to Star Trek conventions, you should keep an eye out for this one particular group of women… They usually wear these themed t-shirts with actors kissing and they’re from all sorts of backgrounds, but they basically got together because they like the idea of certain characters together in more than friendly ways. …

2002 Movie Review

So it’s pretty obvious that we go to the movies a lot. (“”) We mostly blame it on being Southern Californians. It also happens that I’m the type that saves every single stub to every film and event I’ve ever attended. So when the annual film rundown lists started popping up, I thought it’d be fun to post ours as well, since it turned out to be rather impressive. In size, if not in quality. Heh. Merely the ones we saw upon initial release to theaters, not the ones we saw later in rentals. Because what’s the fun of that? …
