I wanted to bitch about work, but I've since forgotten what I wanted to go RAWR about. Therefore it can't have been too bad.

So a meme that I took from [ profile] silver_youko

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

In typical fashion, I have 2 current reads. So have 2 samples!

"The slidefield poured itself at what looked like a blank silvery wall a hundred feet sheer. Dairine threw her arms up to protect herself and succeeded only in bashing her face with the computer; the wall burst like a thin flat cloud against her face, harmless, and they were through."
From High Wizardry by Diane Duane. Third in the Young Wizards series.

"I once heard a psychiatrist type say on TV that people need to feel they're of some value to go on living, and I think there's something to that. It wouldn't be easy to keep going if you thought you were of no use to anyone."
From In the Miso Soup by Ryu Murakami. book that takes place in the sex industry of Japan and features some murder and a creepy American. :D

Yaaaaay post 1,000!!

I had a long night at work so I need this distraction before going to sleep. Especially as I need to do it all over again at 11:30 tomorrow morning. D:

In other news, I renewed my library card! It expired 2 years ago and my name was no longer in the system so I had to "re-apply" for one. Which is ironic as the librarian remembers my name even after all this time. Got Island so I can finally read it after all the good things I heard. Yay for vacation giving me time to read again. :)

And now it is time for massive picspam!!! OMG THINGS! THINGS I LIKE!! (contains: anime, Merlin, Star Trek people)

NPH and Elmo are excited and want you to click.

things that make me happy PAST AND PRESENT )

So yeah. Post 1,000. Lots of images. Here's to another thousand?

i can has waffles

I forgot to mention on my last post about seeing the movie again. THERE WAS A HARRY POTTER PREVIEW. Totally sat there the whole time fidgeting and curling my hands over my mouth to keep from squeaking. I saw it on my laptop, but it looks sooo amazing on the big screen. I can't freaking wait until July.

Today at work I had an awkward moment. There was this one point where 2 guys came in. I'm all like, okay let's go this way to your table. Walk a few feet. Just as I start to turn to ask how they are doing, the one guy says to the other "oh my god i'm totally in love with him but he's living with this other boy". And of course just as he finishes, I meet his eyes and he's all like "oh!" And I was just thinking "well damnit now I can't make small talk with you because we're both awkwardd". It was really funny, maybe funnier at the time. And then I got back and the girl I was working with was like "where they...?" and I was just like "you bet". xD People are awesome.

And now tonight's Trek things. (lol wut)

This video by [ profile] arefadedaway was recced last night by [ profile] thefourthvine

Don't Stop Believing (Star Trek XI, Kirk and Spock) from arefadedaway on Vimeo.

It is a Journey cover. It has spoilery things. I watched it like 5 times last night. It also made me download the first episode of Glee because I liked the cover.

I HAVE WAFFLES OMG. I went to the store after work. I got: waffles, Rice Krispies, Frosted Flakes and marshmallows. The waffles are awesome and I can't wait to eat them. And I got the command badge in the box of Frosted Flakes and am having a stupid amount of fun waving it around at my wall.

some ZQ stuff under here (w/pic!) )

Ok I think... I am going to work on some picspam. Maybe. I might just watch that episode of Glee that I downloaded.

i can see the world from there

First things first. "Chase the Morning" has me in its hold. I think after a good dozen listens of the whole soundtrack, it might just be my favorite song from the movie.

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday! Present is bought, cake-making is planned. And my sister has a lesson at 8:30 which means I will be present for dinner as it will have to be before then. Good times! Also CAKE.

Last night when I went to bed I was determined to not over-sleep. At 10:45 when my last alarm went off, I was determined to get out of bed and go to work. At 11:37 when the manager called my cell phone to ask if I was ok and going to work.. I was so upset at myself. *hangs head* I was across town in 15 minutes. I'm so glad I'm not working tomorrow... *breathes*

I watched the Half-blood Prince trailer!! *slowpoke.jpg* It was.. visually impressive? I honestly haven't read the books in so long that I can't really compare book vs movie anymore. *woe* It makes me sad to even look at my books since I'd dropped all of them and now half of them just have chunks of pages falling out. And I never did get my copy with the Falmouth bookstore plate back from Pat. So it's all just a sad story. I do think I'd like to re-read at least the 6th and last soon. I am excited about the movie and hoping I can do the midnight showing thing. The logistics are tricky as both my cousin and grandma will be here when it comes out, which means my mom may not let my sister come with me. And... well I don't have anyone else to go to the movies with. xD I am lame.

I bought a pair of light blue/aqua tights for my cosplay. I need to get my ass to Jo-ann's for fabric and possibly a pattern.

yeah.... friday.... w00t?

This week has been so long and confusing. Workwise it's been ok. We did another late night on Tuesday. But then after 4am... 1am sounds like cake. Oh the level to which I have brought myself. *sigh* But we finished our cholophyll stuff and now I have to pack up the dried and ground samples to send out for analysis. oh joy. I'm seriously worried about my hand with all the grinding. I'm pretty sure I cant feel my pinky anymore. It's like I broke something.

i got to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Wednesday. *dies of happy vibe* I wasn't expecting Willy Wonka to act so.... drugged the whole time. But it worked in a weird Tim Burton sort of way. *hearts on the movie* I was smiling and laughing the whole time. And if you know me... I don't usually like laughing in movie theaters... I wouldn't dream of comparing the two versions though. They're both unique and I like them both for different reasons. *coughjohnnydeppcough* But yeah...

Also some major disappointment this week. Lena, Susana and Pat were supposed to come visit me this weekend and we were gonna go camping and to P-town. And I though we were good to go till Wednesday 10 min before the movie when Lena called me. She decided she needed to stay home this weekend to "do stuff" to prepare for her Czech friend who is coming in *two weeks*. Seriously... no comment. *dramatic sigh* So now Susana re-arranged her whole work schedule to have this weekend free and she isn't coming. And Pat is sad and disappointed and I'm just annoyed and upset. Lovely...

I leave here in two weeks.... That's so freaking scary. Mostly because I feel like I have no data to present. And only a week to get that data. Nyargh...

So I had this crazy harry potter theory. And seriously... it's majorly flawed. There are things I still haven't explained fully. And yeah... but I feel the need to tell somebody. And since no one really read this anyways, I feel pretty safe mentioning it under this cut...
Crazy Harry Potter thought )
So if anyone read that nonsense... thoughts?

*wanders off to continue data entry*

*EDIT* I took that wand test that has been floating around.... 10 inch yew and unicorn hair. hmm... And 0% on bravery... *laugh* How very right it is...... *points at flist* you should all take it! =)

yay for coffee

coffee is my life saver during the week.

This weekend was *awesome*. Pat arrived in Woods Hole on Friday and he stayed till Sunday afternoon. I feel guilty for sleeping a lot of the time he was here. But I was still really tired from last week. He was super sweet and I really needed that this weekend. Things are slowly starting to go worse here. Work is becoming far too time-consuming. And I know that's why we are here, but it's hard to know that we will be putting in all this effort only to walk away in 3 weeks. People in the house get increasingly loud. Maybe being crazy and being loud is how they like to de-stress, but it's wearing on me slowly. When I'm stressed, I like to get away in silence and peace. *sigh* I dunno.

But this weekend was really nice. I had a good time relaxing and such. I'm so lucky to have him...

In other news... I FINISHED HARRY POTTER!!!! omg. I didn't know what to think afterwards...
stream of conscious thoughts )

Work is bleh. Spent all day in front of a comp. And now to work.

Wow so much to tell.

I finally saw Howl's Moving Castle on Wednesday. I found it appropriate since anime night is usually Wednesday. It was the dub but I loved every minute. Howl was *awesome*. I mean.... *AWESOME*!!! My only complaint was the cheesiness of some of the translation to English. Japanese drama and romance doesn't translate well. (ie- Wow Sophie...... Your hair.... it looks like stardust!! *wtf*) Luckily I have a not-so legal copy on my hdd with subs. And now I won't feel guilty watching it since I paid for a movie ticket and plan on buying the dvd when it comes out. Even if you don't like anime I highly reccomend this movie. I walked out and I just felt happy inside. It's that sort of movie.

Harry Potter is out at midnight..... That's like 14 hours away.... EXCITING! We drove past the kid's bookstore in town where I ordered my copy, They have an alley next to it and I saw that someone had made an arch over the entrance that said "Diagon Alley". It made my inner fangirl grin like crazy. Cuz how utterly cute is that?! I just really hope I can find a ride to town tomorrow. Hell... I'll bike there if no one wants to go....

This weekend is crazy. So much colliding..... Sunday is Pat and my 10 month anniversary. I'm sad that I can't see him. Also Harry Potter comes out. Plus I have to work on Sunday too.... *sigh* And also........ Connecticon is this weekend. *woe* I was looking forward to it for months... I went last year and the second it ended I wanted to go this year. But now I'm here... so no con for me. I wanted to cosplay.... but didn't bother making anything since I knew I wasn't gonna be able to go. Next year then.... or maybe Anime Boston since it's not right before finals next year... *cry* What an odd weekend......

Ugh.. I don't wanna be here at work. I want to go curl up somewhere and sleep....... Meeeeeeeh.....

*wanders away*

(edit) *cry* I'm so mad at myself right now. I was working in the lab and I guess the syringes I was using still had some acid in them cuz now I have weird spots all over my shirt!!! *sigh* So I just ruined my shirt and I have nothing else to change into. The whole bottom from is covered in lighter green dots and smudges.... This sucks... I'm such an idiot...

So..... any ideas on what to do with it now... it looks like bleach splatters..... ._. I don't think it can be fixed....

So it just hit me.... The next Harry Potter book is out in 3 days..... AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

and now I can't think about anything else.... I can't figure out whether I want to be spoiled or not. Not that I can find anything with a google search. But then again I'm not trying very hard.

*twitch* I want this book.......
