mmm... coffee

Teaching starts today. My animal protocol was due in by noon (13 copies to the DLAM office) except I never got the final copy from my advisor. I got in today at 10:30 ready to track him down to go make a zillion copies, but I guess he beat me to it? At least I hope he did, because at this point I can't do shit. So.. since I couldn't do that, I went to the ID card office because I need my access card. After waiting around for a bit, I was told that the person who approves access was in a meeting until 1 and to come back later.

Ahaha. Now I am back in the lab. I don't teach till 2:50, which means I am going to just... be here... for 3 hours. I had gotten some iced coffee to keep me company to the card office, but instead of a small, they accidentally gave me a medium. I have not eaten anything today, so I expect that in about 15 minutes I will be sitting and shaking/twitching at my desk.

While I am sitting here, I will regale you with my story of NYC and Panic!
hey, hey. we are a hurricane )

So... that is probably covered in typos, but oh well.

Ok, now a meme that requires me to do things, because I commented on [livejournal.com profile] brilligspoons's post.

The first five people to comment on this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

MOVIE: Hesher

Hey look, I went and saw another movie by myself. AND NOW I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS AND NEED TO SHARE THEM WITH SOMEONE BEFORE I OVER-FLOW AND PROBABLY EXPLODE. WHICH MY ROOMMATE WILL NOT APPRECIATE.

the tl;dr, spoiler-free version: oh my god this movie was amazing. It is sooo much more than the trailers make it out to be and I was definitely crying by the end. GO SEE IT.

HESHER WAS HERE )

don't be a little bitch with your chit-chat

Why do I not have a Stephane icon? I shall fix that today.

Long story short, Thursday was a train-wreck. I had a meeting at 10 with advisor and lab. I got to the lab at 10:15 and did not see them sitting outside. Sometimes the meeting gets pushed back so I didn't think to go looking. I had texted labmate anyway to let her know I was a bit late. At 11:30, labmate walks into office and is like, where were you? Then I got a lecture from my advisor about responsibility and how they look for students who have proved themselves to be trustworthy for future funding chances.

First of all, the best way to hurt me? By telling me that you're disappointed in me and that I have failed you somehow. So awesome. Second, IT TAKES ALL OF 3 SECONDS TO CALL SOMEONE AND ASK "WHERE ARE YOU? WE WILL BE OUTSIDE WHEN YOU GET HERE". We have these things called cell phones for a reason. And for once I actually had some good insights about the paper and some ideas. And now they won't be heard because no one decided to tell me that they were going outside. *sigh*

ANYWAY

This is not the important thing.

I SAW STEPHANE SKATE LAST NIGHT AND MY HEART IS STILL ALL A-FLUTTER.
Like, you don't even know. He did a quad! And granted it wasn't a very GOOD quad and he almost fell and had to catch himself with his hand... but omg I was in the same room as it. And his spins are like.. so perfect I don't even have words. And he has a presh little smile and he was dancing around and waving and omgggggg. *passes out and dies*

Then afterwards you could wait and some of the skaters came out (lol it's like the idol barricades, but less organized!). But Stephane didn't come out to say hi. D: And I was like, noooooo.

The moral of this story being that Ive already bought my ticket for Sunday night's show (the finale which is going to be aired on ABC at 7pm). The fact that this does not make me feel crazy only means that being a fan of Adam has totally destroyed my idea of normal fan behavior. I am telling myself that this second show is ok for two reasons. 1) How often will Stephane even be around here seeing as he is a Swiss skatter? 2) ...At least this time I will be in the same state. (lmao)

*crosses fingers that he comes out to say hi that night*
omgggg

This is not a real update. Feel free to scroll.

I am having a really hard time not launching into a crazy rambling essay about everything I love about the picture under the cut. It would probably be several thousand words, a large portion would be devoted to the jacket that Tommy is wearing and/or the facial expressions.

Instead... I will just post it here so I can continue to drool on myself and pet my computer screen.

GRIDLOCK NYE IN LA

Let me tell you the story about how I went to Los Angeles for 48 hours even though I live in New England, which makes this entire trip absurd to the max.

So I left CT at around 11am from Bradley International. From there I stayed in DC for a few hours and then went on my merry way to LAX. I was in the back of the plane by the window so I got to see the amazing sight of the lights of LA as we flew in. There is something so... idk... I love seeing cities all spread out and glowing like that. Got of the plane and was hit by California air. <3 It made me realize that, yes, I really do miss California. A lot.

Then I got on a taxi.. with a very rude taxi driver. Who took me to the wrong hotel. And then gave me part of my change back in the form of pennies. I did not like him very much. Oh yes, and the wrong hotel.... I ended up walking like 2 blocks to get to my real hotel cuz of him. *frowny face* And then I had an hour and a half to get ready for the ~PARTY!!!!! I should probably note here that I looked absolutely fabulous, except then I didn't take any pics of myself.

Ok, the rest is going behind a cut.

In which I have no idea which way to flail

Quick update since I'm supposed to writing about coral and gene flow right now.

It was my birthday yesterday. I keep randomly remembering that I'm 24 now and it's weird. I spent Friday shopping in the city, bought some awesome pants at H&M. Saturday I went into the city to hang out with Phil. Got coffee on Newbury St, went for awesome dinner at The Red Fez. Middle eastern food yummm. There was a band and bellydancer. Except it was kinda awkward cuz I think the waiter was hitting on me. He tried to get me to dance at one point, like... randomly. The bellydancer wasn't even out at the time. I was like, uuuuh.... nothx.

Anyway, the Sunday was my birthday for real. I did a whole lot of nothing, then it was dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. OMG SO GOOOOOD. <33 Pumpkin cheekecake ftmfw!

And then we got back from dinner and there were all these amazing pictures from the For Your Entertainment music video shoot that happened. And it was pretty much the best birthday present ever. Plus apparently MySpace is going to stream the full album later today. PLUS I have Kris's CD with some of the bonus tracks and I'm totally rocking out to it while typing this paper.

It's just... been a full couple of days.

Now allow me to spam you with music video pictures, because this is going to be RIDICULOUS.

bondage and leather and sex, oh my! )

bleeergh

LJ world.. I just don't even know right now. My entire sleep schedule and body is totally wrecked.

I pulled an all-nighter last night to finish this big Molecular Ecology paper. I haven't done that in like 2.5 years or so. Pretty sure my last all-nighter was for my honors thesis. I think I lost some time between like 5 and 6:30 am. I was proof-reading after lunch and I was like, wtf did I write this makes no sense. I turned in the paper at 3:30 and totally said right to the professor's face "I am not happy with this at all, my discussion is really weak" and the was mentally kicking myself because WHO SAYS THAT TO THEIR PROFESSOR?! I also ate a Dunkin Donuts breakfast sandwich with coffee for lunch because my body did not want real food.

Then I left the lab at 4. I intended to sleep like 3 hours then get up to work on my fellowship proposal. Except then I woke up and it was 1am and I didn't remember hearing my alarm go off AT ALL. So now it's like 3am and I'm sitting here trying to learn the ANCOVA table for this quiz tomorrow in Experimental Design and wondering how I'm supposed to finish this 2 page proposal by like 4pm so that I can email it to my advisor before he leaves.

SPEAKING OF WHICH, I am like totally in charge of this class I'm TAing after tomorrow. I have to run the lab tomorrow... and then lecture on Monday... and then administer the midterm on Wednesday... then run the other lab next week. So I'm trying not to freak out, except that I kinda am anyway.

ALSO DID I MENTION THAT I HAVE AN NSF FELLOWSHIP PROPOSAL DUE ON THE SIXTH OF NOVEMBER.

Apparently this week is "week of Lina feeling like a poor excuse for a grad student".

Also, adding a new tag to my tag list: ADAM. Yes in all caps. Because he deserves all caps. I need to go back on my ai tag and edit that in. Mental note: make a "Kris is mo presh" at some point.

Album cover out. I am full of lulz over the font. Still stuck on the glowiness of the entire thing. Still totally fixated on his hair. I always want to pet it.. EVERY TIME. I feel like if I ever met him in person, I'm sure it would be totally awkward when I came out with "omg can I pet your hair?!" because I am an idiot like that. GOOD THING I WILL NEVER MEET HIM IN PERSON HUH?

Also he went to the This Is It premiere with Katy Perry. And I'm normally like, ugh Katy Perry (her music is catchy, but not really my ~thing) and omg they look so GOOD together. It's just not fair.
My fave of the pics under here )

edit: I was re-reading this entry and JFC I SAY "LIKE" A LOT. Do I say it that often when I'm actually talking to people?! DDD:

AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

This is the post I'm going to be making to ontd_ai in a bit. I don't wanna do it now cuz the anon post went up about half an hour ago so people will be busy there. Plus I need to test it to make sure it's not gonna break things. (so the tone might be a bit odd since it was written for posting to a public comm.

So... I went to the Manchester show. It was all sorts of epic (although stressful at a few points). But first I need to thank [livejournal.com profile] mylittlehottie for hooking me up with the amazing ticket and letting me flail and scream and generally act insane with her. Also many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] herquiethands + sister for be-friending me in Providence and being my patient car buddies for this show. :D

JSYK, I was sitting in pod B, row AA. The seat right at the corner closest to the front of the stage. TONS OF PICS UNDER THE CUT OMG

best. night. ever. )

As an added aside. i totally didn't post even half of my pictures.

There's the whole album. Feel free to use them for whatever. Photobucket kinda borked the quality a bit so if you have a burning desire for the original size of any of them.. just let me know. They're 4000 x 3000 originally...

quick update between papers

I am so sorry, I'm sure you are all like "oh god SHUT UP about Idol", but....

OH MY GOD THE CONCERT LAST NIGHT WAS AMAAAAAAAZING.

My new camera is apparently the sex because even at like 13x zoom, I got some great pictures. There will be a full review later with pictures and thoughts on the second viewing. Highlights included getting a pic with Sarver, eating lunch with a pair of sisters from the Philippines and Adam coming out to sign (no autograph for me.. but.. he was so close oh god).

AND I AM DOING IT ALL OVER AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT FOR THE FINAL SHOW. Someone on the comm had a FRONT ROW ticket (they had two, only needed one). I AM GOING TO BE IN THE GODDAMN FRONT ROW. *IMPLODES*

So yes, pictures and review tonight. More twitter spam tomorrow night. *FLAAAAAIL*

(someone stop me, this is getting out of hand)

ps- later this week I need to do some ZQ/Pine/Urban picspam to make up for the lack of balance lately.

in the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

Apparently morning is my ideal time for updating this. Procrastination = win?

So I bought that ticket from the Providence show. 12th row on the floor, at the front right section. Now I need to find a Best Buy on the way to Providence so I can buy a digital camera that can actually take good pics. I'm thinking that Monday/Tuesday I'm going to stalk ticketmaster a bit to see if I can pick up a ticket for the final show. It's... 2 hours-ish to Manchester NH from here.. so I could theoretically leave here at 5 and get there in time for the start of the show. (christ I am such a fangirl. fangirls with a bit of extra money are a dangerous thing). I just... I want it to be my epic official end of the summer I guess. Before I really start with hardcore school and can't take the time away to be a dork and flail.

Watched the episode of Glee last night on hulu. OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW. Just... "lady justice wept today", celibacy club, "all by myself", I just... no words. I haven't been this excited about a show that's showing on tv at the moment in a while. Hopefully I'll be able to watch it on tv, but if not, it is being posted on Hulu. Yay internets!

This weekend is the open house at the marine center. I am... not sure if I'm "required" to be here. My advisor has told me nothing and I get the sense that it's kinda encouraged. *sigh* I didn't sign up as a volunteer to run any activities or anything. I kinda wanna go into the city to hang out with Phil, but part of me is like... I need to be involved. Especially since I'm the only person in my lab currently so I don't have anyone to bond with right away. Makes me glad my office-mate is my roommate as well.

Yeah... about that reading. I got the first reading for my Molecular Ecology class... and it's... a lot of pages. Basically the first chapter of a book. I'm glad we don't have to buy a textbook, but oh god pages. Thirty of them. *headdesk* Someone smack me.
