Supernatural 4x01 - Lazarus RisingCollapse )

EDIT: OH. OH. I almost forgot. Well, first of all, music meme. Letters of your first name, letters of the song, etc. You know the drill. Songs to come once they finish uploading.

K - Kyle's Mom's A Bitch from South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
A - About A Girl by The Academy Is...
R - Radio Song by Superbus
I - I Wanna Save You by Something Corporate
N - NYC by Snow Patrol

Second, Wednesday, I went up to where they were filming Gossip Girl and stalked the stars. :D I got there late, so only Taylor Momsen, Chace Crawford, and Willa Holland, who will apparently appear this season (sorry if I spoiled that for you guys), were there, but, OMG. Oh, and the mother was there, too.

But Taylor and Chace wouldn't stop to sign any autographs. I mean, neither did the mother, but she at least apologized for not having the time. Taylor came out of her trailer on her Sidekick, saw us, went, "Oh," and then walked away. Chace didn't acknowledge anyone that wasn't his bodyguard. Willa Holland was the only one to sign anything. Good thing I like her. She's so pretty.

And Chace is way prettier in real life than the television gives him credit for, even if he hid in his trailer for like an hour and even had his hair and makeup done in there so he could avoid coming out for as long as possible. As though we were going to jump him or something. And as though he could avoid it by hiding if we were. Pfft.

And, today, I'm going to a free screening of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, which I am forgiving for its differences from the book (most important, NICK asked NORAH to be his girlfriend for five minutes, NOT the other way around, and NO ONE GOT LOST AND FOUND JESUS, DAMN YOU) because Michael Cera is in it. Mmm, Michael Cera. Hopefully, I get to see it because it's kind of first come first serve.

God, I love this city.

Hi. Remember me? That one girl who went to college? Yes? Well, hi.

Just popping in to say that Gossip Girl gets steadily more and more awesome.

One Tree Hill, on the other hand, is a steaming pile of suck.

That is all.

Whoosh, okay, so, today, I was exhausted from staying up late to do tons and tons of reading that turned out not to be due today. And then I was exhausted from running from my class to my dorm and back just for a jacket that the running made me too hot to put on. And then I had fun because Writing I is so much fun. Our professor asked us to rewrite cliches and one of them was "It's raining cats and dogs":

GIRL: It's raining so hard, the levees are broken!
CLASS: (silence)
GIRL: Too soon?

And then we had to rewrite the sentence "she walked discreetly through the door" to get rid of the modifier:

BOY: She shimmied through the door.
PROFESSOR: Shimmy?
BOY: Yeah.
PROFESSOR: I don't think... Okay, when I think shimmy, I think dance. You mean to shimmy. It's an intentional, noticeable action. You'd notice if someone danced through the door.
ME: STOP! Shimmy time!

And then we all took a moment to shimmy. I love this class. I love those people. I love college! I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, but until then... shimmy time!

Now, more importantly, One Tree Hill and Gossip GirlCollapse )

Tomorrow after my placement test, I'm going home. Did I mention that? Sorry if I did. :3

So... some woman harassed a guy with the last name of Cullen into dating her and they eventually fell in love and got married her name could be Rosalie Cullen. Stephenie Meyer, what the fuck have you done?

Did the Harry Potter fans ever do anything that crazy? I can't recall anymore.

I think Twilight should be quarantined on a remote island in the middle of the ocean (named after a Twilight character, boom boom che!) until it agrees to stop inducing crazy in already hormonal unstable old women and small children. And if it refuses, we BLOW UP THE ISLAND.

I think it would be so awesome if South Park made a Twilight reference, but Matt and Trey are probably blissfully unaware of this "special brand of heroin".

And, for the record, HERMIONE GRANGER > BELLA SWAN.

EDIT: Not to suddenly switch fandoms or anything, but fellow One Tree Hill fans, guess what my Daddy bought me for my incoming move? Uh huh. Lucky bamboo.

Can anybody tell me why the CW didn't pick up Aquaman? It looked like an okay pilot to me. Besides, Justin Hartley can butter my biscuit any time and he's living in La La Bikini Land which means he can get shirtless in every episode. I'm not seeing the downside. Maybe if I pray hard enough, they'll still pick it up?

Re-reads are starting up over at sortofbeautiful (and yes I just noticed today) and I am seriously afraid. I wanted to sign up, but that would require me to actually read a chapter of Breaking Dawn. Which, hell no. But our re-reads are always way better than the actual book so I'll be enjoying those instead thank you very much. I think it says a lot that my friend, Malek, who normally goes out of her way to disagree with me on everything, agreed that Breaking Dawn was a big bucket of fail. Only difference is, she actually read it all the way through. Now for the actual Breaking Dawn spoilersCollapse )

In personal news, my Dad made me clean the bathroom today. I swear I nearly threw up as well as did my fair share of shuddering. I cannot describe to you how big a phobia I have of the bathroom. I hate it. It is my least favorite room. I do as much as I can outside of the bathroom so as to spend as little time as possible in there. I don't even keep any of my toiletries in there. I have no idea what I'm going to do when it's my turn to clean the bathroom at my dorm. Cry, maybe.

Also, apparently, Michael Rosenbaum/Lex Luthor will not be a series regular in Smallville season eight? I was shocked and appalled until I heard that Kristen Kreuk/Lana Lang wouldn't be either. The latter is a cause for celebration; the former... well, I'm wondering how they're going to make that work. I looked at some spoilers and there's one episode I'm particularly interested in seeing, but if I know Smallville, it's just going to be another cocktease designed to lure me back in until yet another Stoopid Clark moment makes me want to put my foot through the television again (see Labyrinth).

I still think Justice was, like, the perfect episode. And not just because Lee Thompson Young and Kyle Gallner were backing Justin Hartley in a daring rescue. Well, okay, yeah, mostly because of that. But Chloe was awesome in it, too. Then again, when is Chloe ever not awesome?

Time's winding down to college. Janine's leaving tomorrow for South Carolina, Lauren's leaving for Connecticut on the 22nd, I go to NYC on the 24th, and Emily and Christie leave on the 30th for NYC and Rhode Island respectively. I miss all my friends already. I had a movie night at Emily's on Monday, took Janine to the movies yesterday, and Lauren came over to my house after work today. Now, I just have to wait for Christie to get home from Mexico so I can spend some time with her before I go off TO MY NEW LIFE!

I just have this feeling that college is going to rock out loud. Therefore, I will cry a river if it sucks.

Also, how sad it is that the topic of debate yesterday while Janine, Lauren, and I were waiting for the movie to start was who is a bigger psychopath, Light Yagami from Death Note (Lauren's choice), Eric Cartman from South Park (Janine's choice), or Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender (my choice)? We eventually decided that Light was the best strategist, Cartman was the best sociopath, and Azula was the best at physical combat, mostly because her evil was severely restricted by the fact that she was on a children's show. I kept arguing that we had to consider what Azula was capable of doing, but Janine kept reminding me that Cartman had tricked a kid into eating his own parents and then licked the tears off his face at the age of eight.

Of course, we decided after seeing The Dark Knight that the Joker kicks all of their asses as far as sociopathy goes.

I'm still not sure who's worse though. I mean, Light Yagami's insane, but so's Eric Cartman and Azula.

And, to make this entry come full circle, I packed all of my winter clothes in a suitcase to take to college. My hats, boots, coats, scarves, socks, belts, and bags filled an entire suitcase alone. I can't imagine how many suitcases I'll actually end up taking.

Yeah, I finally cranked this out. It took awhile, some blood, some sweat, and some tears, but hopefully people still enjoy it. In the wake of Breaking Dawn, you know you were all probably thinking Edward and Jacob should just do each other instead of Bella. Hell, in the wake of Twilight, you know you were all... whatever, I hope you like it.






pressure [1/17]
freeing_pan, rated R overall for violence, language, sexual humor, sexual situations, and that one part where Edward and Jacob do that thing.
Twilight, Edward/Jacob, m/m alternate universe.
Edward Masen is less than enthused when his parents move him from sunny Los Angeles to the dreary town of Forks until he meets and befriends Jacob Black, who easily wins him over with his impish smiles and love for cars. But, as their relationship grows and flourishes, circumstances will force them to evaluate what they mean to one another and whether or not it is worth it.
Part 1 Complete, 8337 words.

When the sun found the moon she was drinking tea in a garden
Under the green umbrella trees in the middle of summer
When the moon found the sun he looked like he was barely hanging on
But her eyes saved his life in the middle of summer
So he said, “Would it be alright if we just sat and talked for a little while?
If in exchange for your time I give you this smile?”
So she said, “That’s okay as long as you can make a promise not to break
My little heart and leave me all alone in the summer.”
--When The Day Met The Night by Panic at the Disco

His cellphone, forgotten on the sheetless bed, had 31 missed calls. One of them was from Jasper. The other thirty were from Rosalie.Collapse )

My aunt woke me up this morning afternoon just so I could take her to the stupid train station. Sometimes, I swear, the ability to drive is a total curse.

There's also a clip from Gossip Girl season two floating around the internet. I tried to watch it, but then I had to stop because spoilers killCollapse )

My ushanka arrived. That's right, I am now in the possession of a lime green ushanka. I was wearing it all morning while watching South Park. I am unbelievably amused.

Also, welcome week at NYU is going to rock, but there are so many events going on that I'm afraid I might not get to them all unless I make a schedule and how lame is that? Which reminds me that I never got to see The Mummy. :(

Um, that's it, really. I just realized I hadn't updated in like six days. My iPods almost completely full?
