So I've decided that instead of doing a scrapbook (since I keep most stuff updated on listography, mubi, last.fm, and goodreads) that I'll be doing a recommendation post every so often where I recommend some of my favorite music, tv, fanfic, recipes, etc. at the moment. And I welcome you to leave some recommendations of your own in the comments!

Oh yes, son, I'm talkin' to youCollapse )

I'm not that serious about stuff, I'm mostly in this for the fashion, but behind the cut you'll have my picks for the categories that I care about, random commentary on the show, and my best and worst dressed commentary and pics.

Also: it's Tina and Amy so what's not to love?

Feel free to spam this post if you like!

So my one suitemate just posted something about all the snow by her (she lives further upstate i.e. lake effect) and I'm just sitting here depressed because of everything and then I just realized that it's super fitting that we wouldn't have snow since, you know, I'm not having Christmas this year.

I'm like a combination of the Grinch and Scrooge this year minus the happy endings.

So last night was kind of crazy because towards the end of Once Upon a Time Molly decided to make popcorn to eat during Boardwalk Empire and...basically the microwave filled up with smoke and four of us went at trying to prevent the alarm from going off. Fortunately, we were successful, but I think we all got our fair share of smoke inhalation and now the apartment stinks.

OUAT, Boardwalk, and GOT spoilery ramblingCollapse )

• I made a poetry blog. I still don't think anything I've written is that great, but a lot of people at Vassar seemed to like what I wrote while I was there so who knows. Maybe that's why I don't think I'm very good, though... There are maybe just one or two that I've written that I've actually been satisfied with, but it's more relaxing than most things I do, and it doesn't cost anything unlike my massive nail polish collection. I find that it does more to releave my stress than when I just write in general, but maybe it's because when I write I'm being too honest with myself, and when I write poetry it vocalizes the emotions rather than the words. Plus, it's easier to evoke a feeling rather than describe it.
• I've also realized how much I actually enjoy doing dishes and zoning out while I do them. It's something else that I find very relaxing, so that now when I'm home and stressed out I'll offer to do the dishes because it's just about the only time I won't be disturbed. If I can afford to get one, I don't think I ever will get a dishwasher unless in an amazing tunr of events, I pop out several children.
• I've started posting my Music Lists of 2012 over at my music blog. If you're interested, I'm currently posting my Top 10 Music Videos of 2012.
• My back is a bit more sore than usual today and I'm not really sure why. Normally it only gets that way if I've been hunched over writing papers or if I'm overly stressed and that isn't the case so I don't know what's up. Maybe it's just the weather. Further proof that I'm not-so-secretly 80, I think.
• I finished seaon one of Rome last night. My lady boner love for Titus Pullo/Ray Stevenson knows no bounds. Those damn baby blues and forearms and long legs good god. Stevenson is the epitome of a Silver Fox, am I right or am I right? Speaking of HBO programs, I'm not ready for the Boardwalk Empire finale tonight. Last week's episode was so good I'm sure tonight won't be able to compare, especially if they decide to kill someone major off but WHO KNOWS. After the box incident I'm not sure they can really fuck with my emotions any more. Molly and I are still hoping Teddy shanks someone with his hidden knife. Hopefully we'll also see what Van Alden is up to.

• When I have my own place I want all of my dinnerware to be clear. Especially all mugs and bowls. Whenever I make tea I just really like to sea the milk combine with the tea itself, or the tea brewing.
• I forever feel that fig tree quote from The Bell Jar weighing donw upon me.
• I've been thinking a lot about my siblings lately and it's just really frustrating, because I know I'll never be able to find Stephan unless he decides to search me out. Yet, in the case of DJ, I have her mother-in-laws phone number sitting right in my desk drawer but can never work up the courage to call. I know that my mother can't say or do anything now that I'm no longer a minor, but I still just don't want to have to deal with her? I'm no longer angry or upset with her to the extent that I used to be, but I know that all she does is hurt others - even if it's unintentionally - and I don't want that in my life again.
• I don't really want to be home for a month for winter break, but I can't wait to get away from Alex and her immature ways.

Since so many people have deserted LJ over the last...well, year or two, I think now is a good time to clean up my friend's list. If you're active on here and would like to remain friends just let me know. Obviously some of you I'm not cutting if we talk on here or tumblr but jsyk. Or if you'd like me to delete you, let me know that as well. No hard feelings.

Just let me know by tonight at 11 pm EST otherwise I shall go ahead and assume you're just no longer active, etc.
i had a dream last night that i told garrett i liked his name cos it was like 'garrotte'.

Yes, the only time I update multiple times in a day is to post something really weird/creepy.

Yeah, I did it again. I made a creepy stalker fangirl mix. This time dedicated to Joe Dempsie and his abs. Or Tom Wlaschiha and his piercing blues eyes. Or any member of the Game of Thrones cast, really.

behold my superior creeperdom!Collapse )

And yes, song choices are intentionally creepy. Especially Summer Camp's "I Want You". You're welcome.
