so the wireless on my mom's laptop wasn't working

and she went HERE NIA FIX IT

there was absolutely nothing wrong with it idek


I went on google to check

and one of the frequent searches is... my username...

I don't know, it's not like I've gone to any great pains to keep my internet identity separate from my real one? Not since high school anyway. Still, it's weird to know your mom is lurking on your journal. And more importantly on your delicious bookmarks, which in my case are a sometimes really unfortunate window to my psyche. HI MOM, you should like, stop lurking creepily and say hello sometime! XD

I am currently eating the most fucking delicious -

Wait. No. Back up. Okay, so there's this recipe. And obviously when I saw it I thought - I must have that bread. I will have that bread.

So I made it. (Cut for many pictures that I took with my phone.) )

And that's what I did with my evening.

So uh

Would anyone be interested in beta/cheerleading this Inception college au commentfic (I know, I know, what even is my life)? I feel kind of ridiculous asking for help with something THIS SILLY, but honestly I just need someone to bounce ideas off of. Because I feel like there's more to the story, but I'm at a loss as to what that, uh, actually is. Plus, I frequently have attacks of OH MY GOD THIS IS TERRIBLE WHY AM I INFLICTING IT ON THE WORLD*, and I need somebody to tell me whether or not I should keep writing.**

*this is why I've only posted like, five fics in as many years.

**if the answer is, "no, please wrap this shit up as quickly as possible because no one is interested" THAT'S FINE TOO. XD

In other news, I'm getting a massage today! :D :D :D FINALLY. It's gotten to the point where I literally can't relax my shoulders. I love my laptop absolutely to bits, but carrying it around all the time is HELL on the back, you know? Plus there's all the schoolbooks, and the fact that sitting at a computer is also bad for the posture, especially since I have no appropriate chairs.

OH LOOK SOME ACTUAL FACTS ABOUT ABORTION, I thought we weren't allowed to have those.

so, apparently today everyone decided to make cookies. IDEK, MY FLIST SUDDENLY EXPLODED WITH SUGARY GOODNESS, DON'T ASK ME. Anyway, I kind of wanted to make cookies, but I'm... lazy... so I just, like, replaced all the cup measures in my chocolate chip cookie recipe with tablespoons and made a single serving of cookie dough (okay it was probably more like three or four servings, WHATEVS I DO WHAT I WANT). So... POST YOUR COOKIE RECIPES IN THE COMMENTS! :D :D :D I'll edit this post with my chocolate chip cookie recipe when I get back to my apartment, because I'm pretty sure you'll want more than just the proportions of flour, butter, and sugar, which is all I could remember off the top of my head. Which, I mean, it makes for pretty good cookie dough in a pinch, but it probably wouldn't turn out too well if you tried to actually bake it.

To all the people who are hitting reply all on the moronic chain letter to everyone on SU campus: stop. For the love of sanity, stop.

(it's one of those "Bill Gates is giving away his fortune! Send this to all your friends soon to be ex-friends to get a bunch of imaginary money!" It's shown up in my inbox something like fifty times today. WHY.)

I was following links around today, and I came across this brain-hurting screed against contraception. Don't worry, I read it so you don't have to, and I've carefully selected a few choice facepalm moments for your delectation. Enjoy - or not.

Warnings: misogyny, racism, mention of eating disorders, stupidity

According to Ms. Smith, contraception is like: )

Some other highlights: )


PS FOR SHEER LULZ VALUE: "God has said, 'I want to be there at the fertile time. I made the fertile time for bringing forth new human life. If you engage in the sexual act, I want My option of making new human life. But I gave you a half of a month, three quarters of a month, where you're infertile and if you want to pursue the bonding power of the sexual act without babies, do it then. I'm asleep. I'm out of town. I don't expect to be invited at that time. I'm not around. You can't even make Me come. I won't come. I can't.'" *snigger*

Ahahaha, seriously you guys, it's not even funny.

...Okay, so it's a little funny, actually.

Anyway, so in history we're learning about Ancient Near East civilizations, and today the professor was telling us the story of the Epic of Gilgamesh, which is basically about this badass king in Mesopotamia.  He's kind of a bitch though, so the people get pissed off at him and pray to the gods to take him down a notch or two.  The gods are like, "hey, so, this king is kind of a bitch" so they send this wild man named Enkidu to run around with the animals and mess up all the hunting.  As smiting goes it's kind of weird and lame, but whatever.  Anyway, the king is not really suited to a vegetarian lifestyle so he sends a prostitute out to have sex with Enkidu for a week (!), after which Enkidu becomes civilized and "wise", and loses his ability to chillax with the animals.  (No, really.  I couldn't make this stuff up.)  Then Enkidu goes and fights Gilgamesh, after which, of course, they become best friends.

The two of them journey around fighting a ton of monsters and stuff, until Gilgamesh gets proposed to by the goddess Ishtar.  Here's a paraphrased snapshot of what went on in the classroom during this part of the story:

PROFESSOR: Then Gilgamesh was proposed to by Ishtar, who was basically the Mesopotamian Aphrodite, goddess of love and fertility, and he turned her down -
MY BRAIN: because he was having hot man sex with Enkidu.
PROFESSOR: because, he said, she brought misfortune to any man who was associated with her.  Ishtar was so offended that she decided to kill Enkidu.  Gilgamesh was heartbroken.
MY BRAIN: ...QED.  Hot man sex.

I had to stop myself from cracking up during class, because then people tend to ask what you're laughing about.  And that would have been awkward.  XD

This is how my latest computer science assignment has gone.

Nia: *types*
Nia: *compiles*
Compiler: You fail!
Nia: Huh.  *moves semicolons around*
Compiler: *all but one of the errors is gone*
Compiler: chutes.cpp:9: error: expected unqualified-id before "using"
Nia: Err, what?
*looks at program*
*cannot figure out what the heck the problem is*
*emails teacher*
Teacher: Err, what?  There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it.  Try copying it into a new file.  Maybe it's got a HIDDEN CHARACTER.
Nia: ...ok... *copies*
Compiler: chutes.cpp:9: error: expected unqualified-id before "using"
Nia: Grr.  Sheesh.  Well, maybe this supposed "hidden character" got copied along with the rest...
Nia: *retypes the ENTIRE PROGRAM by hand*
Compiler: ...
Compiler: chutes.cpp:9: error: expected unqualified-id before "using"

Normally I would just say the heck with it and move on, but I have to use this class in my next asignment, which means it HAS to compile.  Somehow.  I'm just going to have to figure out how before 11 am on Tuesday.  *head/DESK*

Reply to this post, and I will list three or more things I like about you. Then repost to your own journal to spread the love.

In other news, for those of you who I haven't already squeed to at length, I JUST BOUGHT A NEW LAPTOP!!!!111!!1!  It is a Midnight Blue Dell XPS 1530, and I am already in love with it even though I haven't actually seen it yet.  It should be landing in my eager palms sometime early next week.

So basically I am now totally, utterly broke.  Ummmm, yeah.  But, ohgod, so worth it.  :D

PS My NaNo hit finals, choked, and sputtered to a halt.  But I'm not done with this story yet!  I'm not going to make any promises since I always break them, but I have high hopes for this one, oh yes I do.

Ugh, there are fruit flies ALL OVER my dorm room.  It's like for every one I squish, two more will appear.  I am NOT impressed.  -__-

My friends and  I were eating lunch today in room 108, which is a geometry classroom, and we got to talking about House, MD, in particular the most recent episode.  In the course of the conversation, we wrote on the whiteboard the following geometric proof: 

Given that House says "I love you", prove that House and Wilson are life partners.  

We used Hugh Laurie's eyebrows as our evidence.  Then we proceeded to leave the proofs up for the next class to puzzle over.

Having real life friends who are in fandom is THE BEST EVER.

School is out!  Oh, glorious summer, how I love thee.  I have basically been lying around doing more or less nothing for the past week... well, that's not entirely true.  I went sailing last week (and I'm going sailing again tonight, and probably next week, and the week after that... since I am the only Sailing Club leader who is not going on vacation this summer, it falls to me to organize most of the summer sails, i.e. find people who want to go on them besides me.  Which is okay by me, actually.  Whee, sailing!  That aside turned out to be much longer than I meant it to be) and yesterday I helped my mom at work, and plus, now I have the time and energy to actually play my violin occasionally instead of just glancing longingly at it every so often as it gathers dust in the corner.  And I made cookies, which disappeared alarmingly fast considering I made eight dozen.  But mostly, I really have not been doing anything.  It is quite wonderful.

Oh, yes, I really love summer.

Have you ever spent five minutes talking to someone in the next room, only to realize that there is in fact nobody there?

This is especially jolting if you were really starting to warm to your topic.  Not that I would know this from experience, of course.

I'm going to wander off and do my homework now.  For real this time.

Well, I turned in my research paper on Friday, which is a big relief.  This week I get to do a huge Spanish project, though...

*disappears once more into schoolwork*

You know, I love my school, I really do.  And academics are important.  But, sometimes it seems possible that my school is a little too academic...
nianeyna: Morgana from BBC's Merlin (Default)

Did I say my research paper had eaten my life?  No.  I definitely have a life.  In fact, I have a little too much of a life.  Spring break is a joke: I'm going to be busy all through it.  What I do not have is a mind with which to cope with said life.  My research paper, along with sundry other things, has actually eaten my brain (not my life).  Sad, isn't it?  Ah, well, these things happen.  Perhaps someday it will be regurgitated and I can wipe the bile off of it and put it to some use again.  Until then I shall simply have to muddle along.

ETA: Strangely enough, I somehow managed to do more or less absolutely nothing during spring break. Odd, isn't it?
