100indecisions: my chains are broken (pd | Ned whimper)
Got back late last night from Juneau, stayed up doing something I needed to for class, crashed. Got up at 1 p.m. (the last hour or so before that was mostly not sleeping because I just couldn't make myself get up) with a sore throat, and have been getting increasingly tired and achey since then. Now I feel too tired and achey to do anything, which is awesome. I have about ten things written in my planner to do today, all of which take forever, which is why I never seem to get anything done. And I have a lot to do. I need to get a job. So I need to apply for some. I also need to work on marketing my paid blog so I can maybe make some money on that, since now I'm making almost none. I have just over a month until I graduate, which means I have that much time to write most of my thesis and also seven other papers (one is due Monday). There are paid surveys I could do for extra money, and I need to list a bunch of stuff my dad doesn't want on so I can sell them for him and make some other money. Also I really need to e-mail my adviser and hash out what exactly I'm even doing with my thesis--great timing, right?--and finish a mix CD for someone I don't actually know.

Only I'm sick and everything hurts right now, and as soon as I start thinking that maybe I can get some things done I start thinking of other things I need to do. And I can't get anything done because it all takes so much time and ugh I feel like crap. I already want to go back to bed. Body, this is really bad timing, I have a paper due at noon on Monday.

Annnd I used my 30,000 frequent flier miles to get tickets to bring [ profile] faeriemaiden up for my graduation, so I keep having random flail moments about that, like, "Hey I wonder what movies/shows [ profile] warriorofshadow and I should make her watch when she will BE HERE REALLY SOON OMGOMG" and "Hey, I never did go to the Chocolate Lounge, I should take Jolene there!" and then that kind of gets poisoned because it's like "Eeee Jolene will be here in just over a month!...which means that's how much time I have to FINISH MY THESIS and write SEVEN OTHER PAPERS OH HELP."


Holy cow.

It's near midnight and I'm tired from getting almost no sleep last night, and I want sleep too bad to stir up my flail and squee and capslock again, which would be way too easy. But I just have to say:

"Turn Left" was made of total and complete win with little crunchy bits of awesome on top. I mean. You guys, seriously, it was awesome in basically every way. I swear Rusty's been reading my mind or something.

Proper review tomorrow, I hope, because I want to re-watch and also pretty much go over every single thing I loved, which was nearly everything (and that teaser for next week. OMG.), and also because did I mention it's late? And I spent most of today studying for and then taking my History of Alaska final and got in...about three hours of work. So I need to do some of that now.

But dang. This episode. Seriously. Seriously.

Okay, I need to be serious about that "proper review tomorrow" now, operative word being tomorrow, 'cause did I mention how I'm going to get myself back into flail mode again? And then I'll never sleep. Which I probably won't anyway, because OMG.

So I'll leave you with this: Rusty, after this ep, I am this close to forgiving you for the epic WTFery of "Last of the Time Lords," so much so that for the first time I'm almost sad you're leaving. For once you got everything right. Mark me, though, if you keep the next two eps from being completely made of awesome like they clearly want to be and are trying to be, I will hunt you down. Are we clear on that? Okay. Cool.

I just came across this on Blogslot, and wow, it's so totally true. I mean, this was written in 1882, so things aren't entirely that bad now in general or for me in particular, but there's an awful lot of truth in this article.

ETA: Oh yeah, and today's Edna St. Vincent Millay's birthday; [ profile] charismitaine and [ profile] faeriemaiden already posted rather lovely entries about her. I don't have much to add, but here's one of her poems; it's melancholy and lovely, like much of her poetry (and for what it's worth, "The Rain Is Full of Ghosts Tonight" would make a fantastic title for a fic or something).

the rain is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh upon the glass and listen for reply )

Also, although it doesn't exactly count as commemorative fic since it was only a passing reference and I wrote it a long time ago, I do have a bit of "Dirge Without Music" featured in Someday, my most recent Remus/Tonks fic. And for what it's worth, [ profile] honorh's Nine/Rose fic The Life Fantastic has Nine quoting "Dirge Without Music" to himself as he readies the delta wave, which is pretty...fantastic. ;p
