Step the fuck off, California D: Do you sit around going "Hmm, well, we have movie stars, and redwoods, and ocean, and mountains...what's missing? Oh yes! Let's steal cows!" Not on, yo, cows are all we Wisconsinites have :\ BOGUS.

I'm really annoyed by Rachel Ray, but I watch her show anyway because everything looks so tasty ;__; I love Food Network, I watch it all the time. And yet I can't cook. Tragic.

Idek, guys, this makes no sense. I'm just sitting here, looking for kinky fic and figuring out what I want to work on today. Juj and I are going to play Sims during the Packer game...and omg, so we made this Sim who is buff. And bearded. With blonde hair. And blue eyes. AND SHE KEEPS YELLING AT ME FOR ABSENTMINDEDLY CALLING HIM BOB AND I CAN'T TELL HER WHYYY. he really does look like bob, in my defense

SYTYCD!

Yeah. I've been lurking around the TWOP recaps when I'm bored, and was just reading the recaplets for So You Think You Can Dance, and I felt like sharing.

I have a serious love/hate with Dance. I watched part of it's first season, and thought it was dumb. Then I became slave to the all-powerful glory that is Dancing with the Stars, and I figured "hey! Dancing show and dancing show! I must watch." And...yeah, not so good logic.

Stars has really spoiled me for Dance. Because my sister and I sit there watching dance and critiquing horribly. The "ballroom" dances they do on the show are not even worth mentioning, and bear zero resemblence to any actual ballroom dance. But even the other stuff...I'm not a fan of contemporary (so she's flailing around. so what?), but I still sit there and go "They're not meshing!" "Where's the chemistry?" "Your kicks are sloppy!" among other things. Also, the dancers annoy me. I don't know if it's because the "stars" on Stars are usually so cute and "Well, we do our best!"chipper, but everyone on Dance seems like a real drama queen. Yes, you must dance to share your soul, it's your LIFE. Yeah, who on this show hasn't said exactly the same thing?

Which leaves the only part I really like as the Broadway routines (shut up, I am a sucker for anything and everything theatre), and there's only one of those a week, and is usually the one to get cut when they have less dancers. Oh, and also pretty boys. I'm partial to Pasha the Russian this season, and Neil, although he kind of reminds me of Curtis from Take Home Chef, and also Kameron cuz he's kinda punky and I like that. Cedric is my homeboy (REPRESENT), but he's not my type so I can't put my full heart behind him. Sigh. It's shallow, I know, but c'mon. This is So You Think You Can Dance we're talking about.

To begin: Monday was a good day. Monday was probably the single best day of the entire year. It was Senior Skip Day, and I partied with the fantabulous G Dru. Starting the day with karaoke and DDR, moving into sweet hot-tubbing and zomgserious!college discussion, off to watch Hot Fuzz (with teh l33t 54r4), let's get some shoes!, Goodwill hunting (for romance novels), and frozen custard. Yeah. It pretty much pwnz0rd.

And then came Tuesday. Can I just say I really really hate crying at school? Because it's incredibly awkward. There are the people who don't say anything, but they obviously see you crying and are ignoring it, and then there's everybody who goes "are you okay?" and if I was okay, I wouldn't be crying would I? There was a teeny tiny little mess-up with my service hours for NHS (I thought one event was automatically counted, it wasn't, so my total was off a few hours). But it just kind of broke everything over my head. I really fucking hate NHS. Seriously. You do so much shit for that stupid thing, and it means nothing. It's just hypocritical, and DUMB, and thankless. I mean, it's supposed to be an HONOR not a punishment. I hate it so much. At least there's only one more meeting, and then I'm DONE. Grrrgh.

My final (!!!) AP exam was Wednesday, finally, so I'm done. I think it went pretty well, and the writing was really good. I think I feel most confident with this test overall, because I think I pretty much kicked the essay portion's ass.

And tonight is the Supernatural season finale, but I'm still happy because it's not the *series* finale! And! And! I got the S1 boxed set!!! It came already, speedy quick!!! So I'll have Winchesters into the summertime. Ah...summertime. Now *that* sounds good. Despite the fact that I'll be saying goodbye to 1. all the people I HATE 2. all the people I couldn't care less about and 3. all the people I love and will probably never see again, as well as preparing to strike out on my own (towel shopping!!)....anything would be better than this waaaaaiting. Anything. I can't bring myself to care about anything anymore, and I'm just........done.

So yeah, took my APE Lit exam this morning. It wasn't SHOCKINGLY bad, but my brain is pretty much dead. I was planning to crack down and do some writing this afternoon, but now I'm probably just going to dick around on facebook and make dolls.

I don't really feel like writing a whole thing on Lost except: Ben? Until I saw you, I didn't know the *meaning* of "hardcore." Seriously. And also: his father is Uncle Rico.

So ja...Parent's Night went pretty well, with the exception of the crew completely skipping two scenes, which led to:
1. One of our actors almost being squished by a rapidly moving backdrop
2. Our Marian having to book it down the hall, bowling people down while trying to zip her dress, since they skipped the time for her costume change
3. The pit being completely confused and starting the music wrong, which led half of the cast to start singing at the wrong time

But other than that...just peachy. But seriously, it went good for a Parent's Night, which always sux, so hopefully everything will be ironed out tonight. I still haven't watched House (from this or last week), Bones, Lost, and I'm not going to be home for Supernatural tonight. I have a crapload of stuff to catch up on, AND I have a burning desire to watch Rent. Oh well, the show's over on Sunday, and I'll have all the time in the world. Which is a sad thing, really. I don't what I'll do with myself.

Finished The Talented Mr. Ripley (v.v.cool), put a hold on the next Dexter book before realizing that it doesn't come out until September and I won't be here (DAMN), new LKH coming soon...and very excited for summer movie season. I think that there are more movies that I actually plan on seeing than any other year: Pirates (MAY 25!!!), Spiderman (TOMORROW!), HP, and a bunch of others that aren't sequels, so I don't remember them right now.

Whatever

Lost's on in fifteen minutes SQUEE!

I haven't posted in a very long time, because of several time-consuming activities.  One of them is drama (which is, at the moment, filled with drama and asshats. Expect a rant on that in the near future), and when I get home from drama, I have my shows (I never miss my shows. If I'm not home, I tape them.), and, the past two nights...STAGE COMBAT!  We finally did something COOL with Drama Club...a guy from a local professional company came and did a brief workshop in stage combat.  We learned front and back falls, slaps, hair-pulling, punches, elbow jabs...it was totally sweet.  We're trying to see if we could do another, longer course, and that would make me crazy with glee.  My one regret is that we didn't get to play with swords, but apparently you have to train for weeks before they let you actually use a sword. T.T

Tonight was the Academic Awards banquet, which is boring and sucks.  If the school *really* valued my academic achievement, they would give me candy and then let me leave.  And since I'm in NHS, I had to set up AND serve fruit.  Dude.  Aren't I supposed to be smart?  Don't we have stupid people to do the menial labor?  .......Mostly kidding.

Oh well, oh well, oh well.  I want to write, and don't have time.  I finished American Gods (AWESOME) and started The Time-Traveler's Wife on a lovely person's recommendation.  It's good so far.  Senior Ball is coming up, and if I want to ask someone, I have to mobilize.  I have an idea on who I can ask, but I'm not sure if I will.  We shall see what we shall see.

Rrgh.  The drama thing is really pissing me off, so it will get it's own entry later.  Happy Lostnesday to all!

mwestbelle: (Gondor)
300 was AMAZING.  The movie itself had lovely lovely violence (The blood!) and Persian dudes with sweet bling (Shiny!).  It had a lot of parallels with LotR, and, unsurprisingly, reminded me a bit too much of Gladiator at times, but it was cool.  But, as all movies must, it had a very high snark factor.  I spent two hours after the film ended at McDonald's with two friends (Jello and Zackofish Maximus, as he was dubbed) having horrible giggle fits and mocking.  C'mon...when a large percentage of your movie involves a mob of buff men walking around solemnly in capes and leather speedos...there's definitely a lot to laugh about.   Also: I spent most of the time Xerxes was on screen going "WTF?  The 8-foot tall shiny guy with girl-eyebrows is the new annoying guy on Lost??!?!"  I won't even try to reproduce the mass of insensible hilarity, though I will mention that somehow, we got to talking about ordering oral sex at McDonalds. ("Do you want fries with that?")  Yeah.  We have problems.

On Wednesday night I got to watch a bunch of music videos, which made me happy.  I don't know why, but I really really enjoy music videos.  I watch Fuse, of course, since MTV shows nothing but hip-hop dreck.  It was fun.  May I just say:  I know that, by all accounts, Jared Leto is a total asshat, and, dude, you do *not* go after Frodo, but...gosh he's purty.

Today I plan to sit around in my pajamas (as I am doing currently) until I have Night of Drama rehearsal, followed by partyage. W00t!  Really hoping it's not going to be drinking party, which is a valid worry given the birthday girl's sudden swan dive into debauchery.  Hold on...shit, it's her birthday...do I have to bring a present?  I haven't got a present! Bugger.

Also: YES!  When the phone rings, my internet inexplicably goes out for a second, and it just did, and I thought I'd lost the whole entry and would have to retype it again, but I hit back, and it was saved! YUSS!

I now officially know my home is a proper American household, controlled by the commands of the idiot box.  My dad is at the Sports Show with a friend right now, and what does he say before he leaves?

"I'll be home at Lost time."  Hee. ^_^

Didn't post yesterday, because I bought Casino Royale, and I needed me some James Bond.  No time for LJ when there are sexy secret agents to be ogled! Huzzah!

Night of Drama is coming up crazy fast, and I'm kind of really really worried about it.  I mean, it's all just kind of a vague "oh, and then we should do this...and then maybe this" and it hasn't seemed to set in with anyone else that this thing is ONE WEEK AWAY and we haven't actually rehearsed anything. Ever. At all. >.<

I found a ficbuddy who I'm ranting to about my epic which will never actually get written I'm hoping to start soon.  I've also decided to skip the chapter that's giving me trouble, go on to the next one I had planned, and shove this one in later if I really need it (which I probably don't.)  Also, I had an awesome brainstorm for a short piece I'm doing for a scholarship...it's an idea I'd had before but discarded because I didn't think I'd be able to get a full story out of it.  So I was sitting in Focus zoning focusing, when lightning bolt!  If it's not enough for me to do a full length piece on...why not make it into a short piece? Huzzah!!

Really glad Bones is coming back (Angel! I missed you!) and I'm always excited for Lost.  On the book-front: I finished Devil in the White City today.  I really enjoyed it...everyone told me that the architecture bits get really boring but...I kept waiting for a really long, boring architecture part and I finished the book, so either it was so boring I've blocked it from my mind, or...I just didn't find it dull.  But I'm a huge history nerd, and the whole thing kind of thrilled me, since it was in Chicago, my hometown (represent, y'all!).  I started reading Fragile Things, which is a collection of short stories by Neil Gaiman, who I love to absolute death.  I'm about halfway through it, and I've enjoyed most of the stories immensely, and all of the stories a lot.

Subs for dinner w00t!

Didn't post last night, because the computer was being monopolized by JuJu, who has discovered some kind of demented cake-making game and refused to get off. >.<  After that, we watched Othello (the Fishburne/Branagh version), so it was okay.  Kenneth, you are a sexy sexy man, even though you are kinda old.  Your evil makes you sexier.

Watched an episode of Band of Brothers in APUSH today (Ep 7, "The Breaking Point," for inquiring minds).  That was depressing.  It was an interesting reversal from the way APUSH went yesterday, what with Truman!Thumb and Stalin!Thumb making out constantly.  And poor Truman!Thumb just kept getting his face completely sucked off by that dirty little commie.   When I say the upcoming exam is making us a wee bit cracked? I kid thee not.  But seriously, I felt kind of icky and slumpy inside for the rest of the day. Boo.

I was supposed to go dress shopping tonight for Senior Ball, but my rehearsal got pushed back (I'm awaiting a call at this very moment to tell me it's time to come back for it) so I might not get the chance.  Oh well...I'm thinking something knee-length/mid-calf, maybe blue?  I'll post a pic when I get it, so it will be preserved for the ages.

Lost was kinda awesome.  I loved Mikail (spelled totally totally wrong).  Something about nutty Russian dudes just does it for me.  And Sayid might get to torture him, which is always enjoyable. <3  Supernatural comes back next week! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY~!  I am hoping and praying it doesn't get cancelled...it's such a good show, with a pathetically small audience.  We're a dedicated fanbase though! T.T

We got a new catalog today, and I saw a shirt I must. have.  It says something along the lines of "Thou, minion, art too saucy."  Hee to the nth degree. <333  It's a quote from Two Gentlemen of Verona.  Shakespeare?  "Minion"? "Saucy"? All on one shirt?  That there is my kinda top.
mwestbelle: (Default)

I haven't posted in forever.  Things have been crazy busy in a way that's...not.  That makes no sense, I know, but...it's like, I haven't been *doing* much of anything, but I never seem to have a spare moment to get on here.  It's odd.  I've actually been online a decent amount of time (not in the last week, but in the past month, definitely) but I've just been reading porn doing other stuff.  But I keep thinking "oh, I'll post that on LJ" and then don't.  So, in the interest of time and space, I present: INFODUMP 2007!

1. I got my wisdom teeth out. Stitches in mouth = not cool.  My mother withheld my painkillers from me because the surgeon said they were habit forming.  Quick quiz, Mom: What are painkillers for? People who are IN PAIN.  I'm not going to develop a crippling narcotics addiction over the span of TWO DAYS so givememyfuckingvicodin! Urgh.

2. The play went well (yay), everyone loved it (yay), it's been said that it's the best play my school has EVER put on (yay) AND that it was like a show at the Rep (the city's major professional theatre group) (YAY)

3. Musical rehearsals have started.  It's The Music Man (I'm a townsperson. w00t), and it seems like it's going to be pretty sweet, IF everyone can get off their collective slacking buttocks and FOCUS

4. My eyes kind of hurt.

5. I'm struggling to get back into writing with my HP slashbaby (not involving actual mpreg cuz...that creeps me out), my prospective RE fic, and, of course, my ever lurking original work. Zoinks.

6. I'm *really* liking this tv season, even though my shows are ALWAYS on hiatus.  And they all go at once.  It's not like one will be off for a couple of weeks, and then another, no. They're all gone at the same time.  Which has led me to fill the void in my life with Wicked, Wicked Games, the trashiest of soap operas which is (horrors) on every single weeknight BUT is ending next weekzomg.  But, seriously.  House has been pretty cool. (Maybe that's why my mom doesn't want me to have my Vicodin.  Being like House wouldn't be so bad.  I could be clever and scruffy and have the two hottest doctors in the hospital in love with me.)  Bones has been fun, and it's hard to believe that the very first episode was so. bad.  It was just dull and blah.  But now it's cool...although I am broken up inside that they killed my serial killer.  I love serial killers.  And I had a real soft spot for this one, because his first episode was the one that got me into the show. *tear* RIP, honey.  Supernatural has been *AMAZING* and funny and Wincestous.  Lost is, always, fabutastic (SO. GLAD. it's back).

I think that's it.  I should go write.  Or read more wincest... I think I'm going to get a new moodtheme.

Typing to the dulcet tunes of Flashback Friday. Groove, man.

I really enjoyed last night's Supernatural. Really, that show is amazing. It's gotten even better this season, I think. And last night was cool. "You're bossy. And short." Hee ^_^ Oh, Jensen & Jared. You are so sexy. Is it any wonder I have a disturbing weakness for Wincest?

Today was a day. Nothing really exciting; I went to see the Spanish V performance of Don Juan Tenorio, and am now REALLY excited to be in the course next semester. Though I'd rather be one of the guys; Ines doesn't really do anything but mope around. I want to swordfight T.T Also got my AP Exam info booklet. I'm going to have 9 hours 20 minutes of AP testing. Yay. On three different days, thankfully, but still. Blech. I don't even want to think about it.

So instead, I shall think of soda (gotta love mah Dew) and of singing tomorrow (my friend and I are going over a couple of songs that we're considering performing for a drama fundraiser) and of Culver's (probably) tonight, and all around not school. At least I have a thesis for my literature prompt. Stupid Oedipus Rex. 


ETA: Just noticed that the entry title makes the kind of sense that's not, since I totally blanked on actually explaining it.  No, it's not dirty, you filthy perv.  My lil' sis is doing a Stunts & Pyramids unit in Phy Ed (in which you...build pyramids, basically.  With your body.  Fine, so maybe it could be a *little* dirty), and that was her description of the unit.
