Since Kath reminded me how dissatisfied I am with my layout, I felt compelled to waste my rapidly abating free time attending to it. (Or not. All I did was make an image and slap it on the background, but that is a moot point.) To those who are going to look at it, I shall preempt the invetiable question and say this in my defense: No, I was not on crack while I did this. Blame it on the boogie.

Random digression: What's with the word "preempt"? Seriously, look at it. Pronounce it as if you've never encountered the word before. I bet the Powers that Be (in primeval linguistics?) just delighted in all the inconvenience they caused, didn't they? Bunch of twisted sadists. It's enough to drive people like JRR Tolkien to invent alternatives. It's not as if he whipped up Elvish for fun, after all.

Ahem. Let's recap. English words continue to screw with us. Everybody's layouts are changing. Unexpected LJ users are being discovered. What could this all mean for us, specifically in relation to the Apocalypse and the Second Coming? It's madness, I tell you!

...I suppose I should get down to the real reason of all this. Here goes one more lame excuse for today's general imbecility. Ready?

Prior to this, I made a solemn vow not to give myself 3 hour-long breaks anymore.
Huff.
Of course, it's 3 and a half hours, so I technically made good on that promise. That's probably the worst consolation ever. Anyway, I am aware that I could have it worse. However, I like to complain about my bad luck, even if it's better than yours. Pwahaha. Er.

Gross-out time! A-one, a-two, a-three. They're all over me, like white on rice. I have yet to find out what's wrong with my body this time around. My groupmates in Art Stud, following the pattern they've established just recently, tried to send me off to the infirmary awhile ago. After our presentation, of course. (In which I gave a very realistic performance as a grotesque monster. For your information, I did have a mask on.) Tina, being Tina, told me I had German measles. Yeah, well, your mom has German measles. YOU'RE a... German... measle. Ahem.

Anyway, don't worry about me, or I might just bite your head off. My parents have been back from Vietnam for two hours and I already wished multiple times that they'd stayed there just a bit longer. I need my isolation. Asking me if I'm feverish every five seconds and barging into my room to stare at my pink-spotted legs are about as welcome as the spots themselves.

My being a rotten daughter aside, I can't afford to be sick right now. More than the fact that I have three exams in the next two weeks, it's finally the culmination of rabbit app season. Deliberations are tomorrow and I might not be able to go because of my measle pox allergies. I thought I wouldn't enjoy my first App period as a member of the organization, but I was dead wrong. Look how much (a.k.a. ways to go wrong in Photoshop). So many brilliant and enthusiastic people, and I respect them so.

...But, really, look how cute.Collapse )

(P.S. Shared this song elsewhere; I thought other people could use it.)
 
 
musical score: "Fast Car," Tracy Chapman.

I never planned to upset your expectation of never hearing from my LJ again, but I am merely acting in accordance to the LJ tag system... Blame her, as I am only doing what is asked of me. So, here are six songs I got terribly addicted to, in no particular order:

1. "Such Great Heights," The Postal Service / Iron and Wine
2. "Green Amnesia (Chrono Trigger remix)," Disco Dan (remix); Nobuo Uematsu, Noriko Matsueda, Yasunori Mitsuda (original)
3. "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
4. "Waltz #2," Elliott Smith
5. "Three Libras," A Perfect Circle
6. "If I Handle You With Care," Trembling Blue Stars

(With links, because any one person would be able to sing along with at least half of these, but I'm encouraging you guys to grab the ones you're not too familiar with.)

I'll not burden anyone else with the undying decisions involved with fitting your boundless love of music in six numbers. The madness must stop. (If you're up to it, though, have a go.)

P.S. To those who haven't seen Star Wars, go watch it so you'll know why these two images amuse me.
P.P.S. There's another prerequisite movie for the second picture.
P.P.P.S. Yes, you do have to watch two movies to take part in my awkward sense of humor. Welcome to the misfortune that is my levity.
P.P.P.P.S. On a completely unrelated note, I miss you all. ^^ Yes, that means you.
P.P.P.P.P.S. Except you, Tina. Hee.

For those of you who remain stumped, here are the titles to those lyrics.Collapse )

I'm pretty surprised no one got #23, mostly. #12 was a song played often in The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Polaris was only one more reason to believe that Pete & Pete was arguably the best reason for TV's existence.

Fun times ahead. :D (from wraithlike)
Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play!
Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 25 songs that play!
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from!
Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly!
Remember: no cheating and pasting the lyrics into a search engine. ;)

What is love? Baby, don't hurt me! Don't hurt me... no more!Collapse )

A lot of them are fairly easy. But if you get #12, please be informed that I'm making you my soulmate. ^^ Oh, and just so you know what kind of musical taste I have, here's a very transparent preview.Collapse )

...The next time we meet, I'll understand if you can't look at me without cringing.
