It's weird not having my Monday night shows on - I was able to watch the hockey game (I'm so glad they didn't trade Zuccarello) and Star Wars Rebels at its usual time instead of recording one of the many reruns.

Here are some things:

- work was freakishly quiet today. Given $localevents, we KNOW when the other shoe is going to drop, so am trying to enjoy being not-flat-out while it lasts.

- Scripts! People like them! Yay!

- Something something I forget

- Bed now yes

1. Well, I got a little more sleep, my period is over, the weather is nicer and I guess I'm feeling a bit better overall.

2. Still no apartment, still utterly fucked on grad school (SO, SO FUCKED). At some point I have to own up to the fact that I'm way past the red zone and I have to buckle down and start using every goddamn resource including friends who could maybe give me advice but to whom I don't want to admit my failure and work colleagues who have a slim chance of helping but who I absolutely hate asking. It's just, this will take so much emotional and mental energy, it would be difficult to do on a good day. In the middle of apartment hunting and other drama it's... difficult. I need to have like a billion unpleasant conversations with people I don't know, the thought of which makes my skin crawl, and all for the slimmest of chances at "victory".

But it's this or give up and I guess I'm not done clawing at the world to give me this thing yet.

3. This morning [personal profile] roga and I and a friend of hers who slept over all got up at roughly the same time and were going about our morning routines together ([personal profile] roga and I don't normally see each other in the mornings) and it made me suddenly excited for Amsterdam. Ah, April, when I will get to share a bathroom with two of my favorite people in the world. LOL. It's very weird - because, like most introverts I know I am in no way someone who enjoys being social in the morning - how much I'm yearning to be stuck in a tiny room with two other people and one bathroom. But, I don't know. Maybe it's that I've missed close intimacy with loved ones. Maybe it's that I just want to be on vacation already, somewhere away for a week. Probably a lot of it has to do with the fact that I met both of these friends in the military, so there's something familiar and comforting about sharing close quarters with them again.

4. Remember how I lost my ipad recently? Well, I decided to just say fuck it and buy a new one. I use it all the time, if I wait until buying it is smart or appropriate I'll spend a year suffering. Well, I bought the newest model (actually cheaper than mine was originally) and it turned out to have a faulty battery. Going to the store to replace it means leaving work early, driving 30+ minutes in traffic in each direction. I won't even tell you how much time and money I've already spent on this shit, but finally I got it replaced. Guess what - the new one they gave me also has a faulty battery. AHAHA. HAHA. /o\ Someone please shoot me. The store currently refuses to just give me a refund, I wonder how much of their merchandise I'll have to go through and how many hours and days of my life I'll have to spend paying for my fucking stupidity in losing the original tablet.

5. On twitter I was recently talking to [personal profile] anatsuno about American History X and how it cemented my love for Edward Norton in a weird way. tw: Neo Nazis )

1. I bought Donkey Kong Country 3 and Tropical Freeze! :D I'm holding off on the first two DKC games, since 3 is the one I liked best and at $8 each it was kind of steep to buy all three of them plus Tropical Freeze, even if Tropical Freeze was 30% off. (Also I am now out of room on the Wii U's internal hard drive, so I guess I need to buy an external one. D:)

2. After all the rain we've had this year, our little lemon tree out back seems to be coming back to life. This morning Carla even found two teensy lemons on it!

3. I had such a nice relaxing day off! I wish I'd actually done a bit more translation and stuff, especially since I hardly ever seem to do any on work days lately, but oh well. It was nice to just relax and do nothing.

I had to eat orange dye because modern medicine is confusing.

Mom picked up the orange dye for me. The dude pharmacist had no idea what she was talking about, but the lady pharmacist was just, "ah yes, the orange dye that you eat because modern medicine is confusing, yes it's right over here next to the products with pictures of cranberries on them."

I took a nap and things were looking up, but then I poured dishwater down my front while washing a roasting pan. Perhaps it would be a good idea not to operate heavy machinery today.

.... There's also the fact that Current Freelance Client hasn't gotten me my changes back, which means I could technically spend the whole day writing fanfic. I probably shouldn't, but I could!

On a further fannish side note, with Agent Carter just ending and Agents of SHIELD coming back soon ... I don't know how many of you guys know about [ profile] avengersgen, but it's a gen prompt comm for the whole MCU, and they just started a new round. Got any Carter prompts you want to see? :D That's pretty much all I've been writing lately, though I haven't posted anything because it's all turning out long. I'm getting back into writing fanfic a bit more, though, and I'm back into the MCU, so if there is something gen you want to see written, leave a prompt and I just might write you something. :D

I'm colder and more tired than seems at all reasonable, but since Kas is on his way to pick me up for movie-going, I'll have to hope that bundling up warmly and being away from my desk will take care of both problems.

But seriously, it's warmer outside than it has been (not warm, just better) in a while, and I even turned the heat up a bit in my office, so I'm very puzzled about feeling chilled to the bones.


A meme that's going around, because why not?

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks (if applicable)... what's your ideal fic from me?

Hey guys--can you take this survey for me about icon choices on our website? (Note: this isn't the official survey I sent out to the library staff and which will probably go out later in the year to the university's community and whose answers will take priority over anything I learn here; I just got curious as to whether the results would be different for a different population, so made a duplicate of the survey to see.)

The only things you'll need to know if you're not familiar with our library are (1) "FrogScholar" is basically a search engine that searches a group of the library databases, plus the catalog, plus a few other things. (2) "Database" is a broad term for libraries that basically means "online reference works": they could contain journal articles, abstracts, company information, encyclopedias, directories, ebooks, chemical information, and all sorts of other stuff. And, yes, data sets. smile emoticon*

* I copied this text from my Facebook post and the smiley transferred as that. I found it amusing.

Category romance novels are capable of making me quite sad!

Most other things are also capable of this, though.

It's so strange seeing my Western friends make all these ~multicultural~ dishes at home. idk, I don't know any single (mainland) Chinese person who actually cooks non-Chinese food at home. People will go out to eat food from other countries, but at home, yeahhhhh. Though granted, we do kind of use different cookware...(and ngl, cooking food from another part of China can already be counted as 'spicing it up' for us, what with having eight ~great~ regional cuisines and all ;p).


I noticed the other day, when I had my first ever Dairy Queen blizzard, how my palate has changed over the years. I used to not really be a fan of strawberry ice cream, but recently I've found myself being perfectly fine with it. And I used to really dislike coconut stuff, but now it's okay, i.e., I'm one step above tolerating it. And I rather like coconut juice now, too, whereas I didn't used to. I also used to not like garlic chives when I was a kid, too, but I've loved it for something like seven years now. :p

So I'm curious whether the flist has experience anything similar? :)

1. It rained so much today. It even hailed for a while! It's supposed to rain tomorrow, too, though I don't know if it will be this much.

2. I have tomorrow off! Originally I was planning on going to lunch and karaoke with a former co-worker, but I had to beg off because I'm just so exhausted. I have to go to West Covina on Tuesday to help with their remodelling, and I don't have another full day off this week except tomorrow, so I was really feeling exhausted at the thought of going out. Now I'm just looking forward to a relaxing day of staying in and doing nothing.

3. We had steak quesadillas tonight and they were so delicious!

I appreciate that Hatori's yuri concept was "two Tamakis, but one of them looks like Kyouya." Good work.

--Ordering Chinese for dinner: excellent. Kas making super-lemony lemon loaf, some of which was had while watching TV at Chez [personal profile] wildpear: also excellent. The combination did, however, result in the thought of even having tea when I got home making my tummy say "NOPE". Which is fine and all, but...tea. >.> I think some part of my subconscious truly believes tea doesn't physically take up any room.

--Tonight we finished season 1 of Leverage. *^^* (New to everyone there but me, other than [personal profile] scruloose having seen a handful of scattered episodes.)

--After literally (IIRC) not leaving the house for a week (since errands last Saturday afternoon), I ventured out last night and again tonight, and plan to go out twice tomorrow (for the dentist in the afternoon and Jupiter Ascending with Kas in the evening). As I said earlier to [personal profile] seascribe, my hermit status is suddenly threatened!

And naturally, the day I have plans is the first day it's supposed to snow in at least a few days. Fortunately neither plan involves taking transit. (Spring can come ANY TIME now. Just throwing that out there. >.<) The ice on our street is about an inch thick in places, I'd guess, while the surface is bare in others. At least tomorrow's weather isn't expected to be a storm or anything, but we really don't need any more snow.

(Coincidentally, the photos in this tweet from [ profile] hfxtraffic show a side street we were on last night. The main streets in Halifax aren't too bad, other than being alarmingly narrowed by snowbanks, but the side streets aren't pretty.)

--I haven't started reading anything new in a few days because a) I spent Friday evening mainlining six episodes of Person of Interest (I'm now caught up on all of my current/active shows except Parks and Recreation) and b) I was waffling about whether I could fit a new novel in before rereading Half-Off Ragnarok (the third InCryptid novel) in preparation for Pocket Apocalypse coming out this week. Possibly I could have, but I can't now, so hopefully I can get started on that reread soon. (Although I didn't pay for speedy shipping on the order of three copies of Pocket Apocalypse--when I did that for Unmade last fall it went poorly--so mostly I'm hoping the order arrives by the end of the week. [That would be copies for me, Kas, and [personal profile] wildpear, not three copies for me.])

--Good luck facing Monday, everyone.
