I feel rather less than clever. I've been freaking out because my lit review is due Thursday, but I have to go home today so I can get my braces off tomorrow morning. Tried to reschedule my appt. but I didn't want to wait a month. So I was going to have to go home tonight, and come back right after my appointment,to finish it and turn it in.

I have to turn it in by e-mail. Admittedly, I don't have internet at home, but driving to the coffee shop to turn it in is a lot easier than driving back to town. Heck, driving all the way to the library would be quicker. I'm still going to try to finish it today, but I'm a little less argg since if I need to I can read it over one more time tomorrow and then turn it it.

I need a hug and a kitten. Or a hug from a kitten. Good thing Elsa and Rudy are at home. (Yes, they're kittens-with years of experience between them.)

Writer's Block: The Royal Wedding

[Error: unknown template qotd]
A fondue set! Or maybe a nice set of everyday Corelle. I'm pretty sure they're not getting either of the above from anybody else.

Incidentally, if I ever get married, I'm totally going to register for a fondue set. I'm hoping they'll come around trendy again any day now.

Writer's Block: Taking a trip with Mrs. Tibble

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Pretty much this same question was a writer's block on May 10 of last year. I want my money back, this prompt's recycled!

"My first car was a little red truck, hence LRT (Ell-ar-tee) I joked that it stood for Louis Renee Thibodeaux-but mostly I just called him by his initials.

My current car is Aya, after the firebird in a Mercedes Lackey novel. It needed a bird name because it had a tendency to collect seeds on the windshield and scatter them all over town. Plus Aya (the bird) was a loyal bondbird if a bit vain and I figured that suited my car pretty well. "


Speaking of, if it ever stops with the torrential downpours, I need to see if Aya got hailed on last night.

I'd give up skiing because I would never miss it. I could probably give up all of the above unless walking to class counts as hiking, in which case I'd have to keep either hiking or biking. I'd probably miss swimming although I don't think I've been swimming in 5 years.

Writer's Block: Higher state of consciousness

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Oh, come on people. Cheetos and Funyuns with Pink Floyd's The Wall. Maybe, maybe, Dark Side of Oz. Cheech and Chong, I guess, although that's almost too obvious. I'll even allow for the animated Hobbit/LOTR, just because cool.

4/20, kids. It's a pot reference.

And now nobody will ever believe I didn't smoke pot. But I didn't. Because I had asthma.

(Being John Malcovich did things to me that I assume are like being on drugs.)

Writer's Block: A super debate

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Wow. LJ getting all controversial up in the house. Except not.
Green Lantern. Obviously.

(Right now, though, I totally want Beast's powers. Wait, not his powers. Scratch that-his mutant power was super strength, he just happened to be super-intelligent. Umm... Oh, the Flash! Because I bet he can type really fast.)

You were born during a Waning Crescent moon

This phase occurs right before the new moon.

You appreciate closure. It bothers you when people promise to do something and then don't follow through. You want to able to right the wrongs of the past. Studying history motivates you to improve the world. You put a lot of hope in the future and look forward to seeing technology and progress improve our lives.

Been a long time since I used all these tags

I just found a recipe for Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Would this be the best thing ever, or would it be more dreadful than the deep-fried Oreos?

I plan to find out.

Writer's Block: You're my best friend

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I hear that Australian possums are very fuzzy. I don't know if they're friendly, though.
Honestly, I'm too paranoid about things falling out of my pockets. I wouldn't do it. I don't usually have a shirt pocket, which would be the only safe animal pocket.
In amazing fantasy land, though, I'd totes have a bitty dragon in a magical not-squishing pocket. He would purr and be useful for lighting candles.
(Kittens already fit in jacket pockets nicely, and thus are excluded from this consideration.)

Writer's Block: The kindness of strangers

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Based on previous writer's blocks, I'm a capricious dictator who just won the presidentship by a 'mudslide'. So I'm guessing my security detail takes care of it, leaving me to deal with other things. Probably the insulter gets stuck in the stocks for a few hours, I don't know.

Writer's Block: Following the leader

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Win by a mudslide? Like, I bribed everybody with alcohol, or my opponent was in a tragic national disaster?

If I won by a landslide-I'd call shenanigans. I'm too young to be president. And for all that I used to want to be First Woman President, I don't want the position anymore. Too much pressure, not enough power.

Writer's Block: Songs of patriotism

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I would be a capricious dictator, changing the anthem at a whim. I would expect my bevy of composers to be prepared, at any time, with a menu of new anthems to choose from.

(Also, how amused am I by some of the Russian answers to this? Dire Straits, really?)

Edit: Just remembered I used to play NationStates. I had a country. We had a flag, even! But I think the interwebs ate it. Alas for the great state of Zenduckia.

I have an overwhelming desire to re-watch Lord of the Rings and/or play D&D. Clearly, my inner geek needs appeasing.

It is a beautiful day outside. I tried sit outside and read, but it is too windy and I chased my class notes twice before I had to admit defeat. Sadly this means I'm inside waiting for my laundry to finish and then get back to studying. Maybe I'll sit next to a window and pretend to be outside. Maybe it will be lovely like this tomorrow and I can sit outside and read for fun.

Well, if qualitative research isn't going to believe in validity or reliability or statistical analysis or reality, then I'm not going to believe in qualitative research. So there.

I just got several rows of a dishcloth knitted whilst listening to a Torchwood radio play. I am pleased, both by the knitting and the fact that I figured out what to with my headphone cord while knitting.

Writer's Block: Lassie, come home!

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Rudy ran away shortly after we moved to KY.  It was near Halloween, and I was devastated-black cats don't do well around Halloween.  Mom was putting food out to lure him back, but one night she forgot - only to hear a horrible yowling on the front porch.  It wasn't Rudy, but a half-starved little furball, demanding supper.  Naturally, Mom carried the poor critter into the garage-shushing me so Dad wouldn't find out right away.  And that's how Hachi moved in.
Rudy showed up a few months later-came in through the garage.  He sat on Mom's lap and 'talked' to her all night-clearly he'd had an adventure, if only we could have understood him.


It's not clear from the pictures, but Rudy's nearly 3 times the size of Hachi.  Rudy is a sweetheart who loves to butt heads as a greeting.  Hachi has a bit of  a temper.

OMG I was doing dishes and there is mold growing in 2 of my roomate's cups.  Vile.  (Filled them both with hot soapy water so we don't all die).

Super important

Okay, peeps, I need your advice on something super-important.

Which rain boots do you like?

White swirly:white swirly boots  black swirly: black swirly boots

Purple paisley: butterflies


And/or does anybody know where to find cute practical rainboots?  I know these won't be very warm, but I don't really want to wear fishing galoshes.
