So long, and thanks for all the fish [11 Oct 2006|12:33am]
So, I've been kicking around this idea for awhile, and reading back over my old entries kind of sealed the idea for me: I'm switching lj names. This journal was actually made for me by a friend, based on a screen name I made for myself when I was 13, which was, you know, quite awhile ago. So it wasn't really me even when I started posting in it, and now I feel even less so. Therefore I have created a new lj, and I friended you guys, so please add itsbeensovery, because, you know, that's me. Unless you don't love me anymore, in which case I am a sad panda. I'm not going to delete this journal or anything, I'm just not going to be posting in it anymore.

too lazy to do the link thingie [09 Oct 2006|02:32am]

So, I haven't read the graphic novel this is based off of, but I really really want to see this movie. The trailer is so fucking pretty, and the fact that it uses my absolute favorite NIN song definitely got my attention.

Question! [06 Oct 2006|03:00am]
[ mood | tired ]

So, once again I appeal to the LJ community for shit I'm too lazy to look up myself.

If I'm mailing a letter to Japan, do I put the address in Japanese or English? I feel like this is something I should probably know already, but all my experience is with getting mail from Japan, I've never had to send something over.

Also, we got Xavi fixed today. He's... not pleased. But, you know, can't have him possibly sneaking out and making more devil cats. As for me, I'm finally getting over the mutant alien death virus. Food is still something of a problem, I'm still only eating once a day, and I feel ill afterwards. But I'm looking forward to next week, when hopefully this will no longer be a problem. ^_^

[ mood | disturbed ]

So... skimming my old LJs (as in freshman and sophomore year mostly) was a singularly mortifying experience. I don't think I've ever been so inspired to get off my ass and and be proactive in my entire life. Some of that stuff was actually physically painful to read, and actually some of them I couldn't. But hey, at least I learned something. Spazz!Lizzy is really fucking annoying, and I will never, ever be her again.

I only seem to update when I'm supposed to be doing something else. Go me. Supposed to be writing a paper for phil of science, but the problem is that after a couple years in the English department, I really just can not work up a suitable amount of urgency when it comes to cranking out a few pages for some of my other classes. Sad but true.

In other areas: life is hectic but moving along, I suppose. Despite paper-writing predilections, other areas of scholastic achievement are actually progressing, which is a nice change from the slack approach of the past couple of years. There is one thing to be said for most of one's friends graduating and/or leaving: it forces one either into hikikomori-hood (damn you, COUp!) or into actually being responsible. I still love all my classes but wish a couple of them weren't so damn early.

And of course most importantly of all: Battlestar Galactica starts next week!! To say my apartment is excited would be a vast understatement. Now, if SciFi would quit with the being a cock and start the new season of Atlantis sooner than March, all would be well.

[ mood | cool ]

So... more gushing about how awesome my classes are. Really. I can't help it.

My HIST 363 class is the awesomest thing ever. It's Japanese history from Tokugawa up, but it's one of those guided research courses instead of a lecture. The professor is really really cool, I went to his office hours today to talk about possible research topics, and we ended up talking for almost an hour. He's from Papua New Guinea, so it's cool to hear him talk anyway. One day, I want to be this awesome.

Also, Laura, Nora, Adam and I have finally caved to peer pressure and rented the first season of Deadwood. We're about 4 episodes in right now, it's slow going since we're all really busy and if anybody watches it without anybody else, stabbing may ensue. About 5 minutes into the show we decided two things: First, that is was pretty fucking cool, and Second, that Bullock is creepily like Audish. The physical resemblance is kind of there, but they have the same mannerisms and everything. So now when we talk about the show, we just call that character Audish, lol.

[ mood | calm ]

So, since it's been awhile since I've done a real update, I have compiled a list:

*Summer was boring but now it's over. I did get to catch up on Doctor Who and Stargate Atlantis though, so not too many complaints.
*Went to Florida for vacation. Fell in love with St. Augustine (the city). Went with my aunt (not the yuppie) so now mother is mad at me.
*Work still = lame
*I love Japanese. Sawamura-sensei is the professor. I win.
*My Phil of Science class is unofficially subtitled "Why Creationism is Stupid" and is therefore awesome.
*My English class kicks all your other classes' asses. Ever. We're reading Harry Potter, The Golden Compass, Lord of the Rings, The Once and Future King, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and some other good stuffs. I win again. Bitches.
*I'm taking a math class. Because I want to do math. Seriously. I am defective.
*I met this guy today. Except I've known him for a whole year. He's been in my Japanese class since the beginning, we've just never sat near each other, and he sort of looks like he fell into the Gap so I've never really paid attention to him. (Hey, Audish is pretty much the only person who could fall into the Gap and still have my love) But it turns out he just looks like a normal, in reality he is geektastic. So now we sit together, and instead of doing pair work we just talk about ourselves and gaming in Japanese. And I got hit with the "we should study together sometime" line. At least, I think it's a line. We weren't really studying too well in class, so I'm not sure outside it is a good idea. Unless proving we can say "I like Sephiroth because he's cool and evil and carries a huge sword" in Japanese counts.
*I put in a request to have Tuesday nights off from work this semester because I miss COUp.

The FDA approved an over the counter version of the morning after pill! Given all the scary legislation being made lately, this at least is something good I think.

It could just be a failure of imagination on your part [07 Aug 2006|03:44am]
Can't sleep, so, of course, new icons. Just a couple Stargate Atlantis ones, which is my new show obsession (kept most of the Doctor Who ones though, because they're still awesome). Just a couple of McKay and Zelenka ones, because I am in love with McKay (he's such a sarcastic bastard) and Zelenka because he's like a great Czech teddy bear. I've loved Stargate for years, since the movie actually, but I wasn't that sure about Atlantis. Laura's been downloading it, so we've been watching from the beginning, and I really love it, although about 75% of that is my total adoration of McKay.

Anyway. Aside from the fact I am the geekiest person alive, things are going ok. Going on vacation to Florida in a couple days, then taking my sister to college, both of which promise to be interesting. Ready for the semester to start, I kind of miss being in class. All of my classes this semester at least sound like they're going to be interesting. I'm taking philosophy of science with Nora, so there at least I have it guaranteed that interesting arguments will occur.

I am so excited about this movie!

Trailer looks awesome. I was a bit worried, but it looks like it will be cool.

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now.  (Several of my friends are out of the state and/or country, and I miss them a lot.) I don't watch much TV these days.  ((I download it instead!! Mmmm.... Doctor Who...)) I own lots of books.  (I buy books like preppy bitches buy clothes.)
I wear glasses or contact lenses. I love to play video games. I've tried marijuana.
I've watched porn movies. I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (Actually, I am fairly certain all of my exes feel this way about me. For several of them, it's probably accurate.) × I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  (Er, I believe you should strive for honestly, but yeah, I'll lie if I think it's necessary.)
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year.  (I've pretty much withdrawn into my hermitage.) × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on...Collapse )


I watched the end of season two of (the new) Doctor Who. It was awesome, and I cried for the last ten minutes straight.

Best support for why Clive Owen should be the new James Bond:

Sexy, sexy beast.

Does he still stroke bits of the tardis? [21 Jun 2006|09:17pm]
Doctor Who icons, because I'm in love. It's an equal love between the 9th and 10th doctors, although most of these are of David Tennant because he makes some awesome facial expressions. And, you know, he's a sexy Scot.


Life is life-like. Apparently they're not closing our store just yet, and since we're losing a lot of people to the new store, I've been offered and promotion/raise. Haven't decided if I'll take it yet, it's mandatory full-time, which I'm not sure I can keep up when fall semester starts. Spent a couple days at my parents' house this past weekend, which went fairly well. I'm being taught how to drive a manual, which I'm picking up pretty well but I'm still not convinced it's not a total pain in the ass. Today the first issue of Neil Gaiman's new comic came out, so of course I bought it. ^_^ I like it so far, but I feel like it'll probably work better as a graphic novel than it will serialized. Which is ok, because when it comes out as a novel I'll buy that too, heh.

[Edit] My cousin just called to ask me if I'd get a copy of my ID for her to use as a fake ID. I'll streamline the conversation for you guys: I said no. I mean, seriously. I have no problem with underage drinking, and even supporting it, to a certain extent. But if she gets caught with my ID, I'm the one who goes to jail. And I'm just not cool with that scenario. She's mad at me, but hey, I'm the one that would be screwed, so oh well.

Things have been low key over here lately, except for angst over an relationship that exists in everything but name, argh. Living with Laura again has been a relief though. Real update tomorrow, I just felt kine of lame posting a quiz result when I haven't updated in awhile.

X-Men QuizCollapse )

Laura: You are PeeJee! Oh, deny it! with your years-long fixation on a gay guy.



The truth. It hurts.

So, if anyone has seen Jules/will be seeing Jules/is actually Julius, I would be terribly grateful if you would direct him to contact me immediately. It is rather important, and no one seems to be answering their phones. Thanks muchly.

[Edit] Cancel that. Julius has been located.

Sooo.... brief question. Why is there already a trailer for Final Fantasy XIII when Final Fantasy XII still hasn't been released? Anyone? Bueller?

I mean, come on!</>
