Despite my happy posting earlier today, I am, in fact, in a bad mood. It's unclear WHY I'm in a bad mood, although I'd guess lack of sleep and general irritation at life may be to blame. I've eaten, so at least I know I'm not suffering from low blood sugar, but damn. I've had a headache for four days running, I'm still coughing, I have to clean my apartment, and there's a cocktail party tonight at which I need to look stunning. WHINE WHINE WHINE.

I feel pretty.
Oh so pretty.
I feel pretty and witty and gay!
And I pity
any girl who isn't me today.

Funny. The more you think you've got someone figured out, the more likely they are to surprise you. Except if you've got me figured out. Once that happens, you're home free -- I'm pretty predictable. It turns out that you can't really box people into nice little square-shaped containers.

I'm very sick of this rain. It causes the ants to panic and flee their flooded homes for my apartment. I'm not really okay with that. And also, cold.

My friend is loaning me a lot of DS9. The show was interesting at first, but has since improved even more so since my friend told me that the same people who created Battlestar Galactica did DS9. Ronald D. Moore and Bradley Thompson wrote and/or produced the majority of DS9 and BSG. Anyway, it's totally bizarre. Chief+Keiko == Chief+Boomer; Changelings == Cylon v.2; Julian Bashir == Gaius Balthar; Kira == Starbuck; human race fighting for survival

Try not to tell me giant plot spoilers about either show in the comments -- I'm halfway through Season 4 of DS9 and I don't remember anything from after the end of season 2 of BSG -- but what do other people think?

Well, you found me. Was it worth it? The only thing you've managed to break so far is my heart...
This isn't brave. It's murder. What did I ever do to you?
...you don't even care, do you?
Please proceed into android hell.

Malest, Cornifici, tuo Catullo,
malest, me hercule, et laboriose,
et magis magis in dies et horas.
quem tu, quod minimum facillimumque est,
qua solatus es allocutione?
irascor tibi. sic meos amores?
paulum qui lubet allocutiois,
maestius lacrimi Simonideis.

That's the poem I was trying to find.

SONNET 141
In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes,
For they in thee a thousand errors note;
But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise,
Who in despite of view is pleased to dote;
Nor are mine ears with thy tongue's tune delighted,
Nor tender feeling, to base touches prone,
Nor taste, nor smell, desire to be invited
To any sensual feast with thee alone:
But my five wits nor my five senses can
Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee,
Who leaves unsway'd the likeness of a man,
Thy proud hearts slave and vassal wretch to be:
Only my plague thus far I count my gain,
That she that makes me sin awards me pain.

This pasture is green
I'm walking in the sun
It's turning brown
I'm standing in the rain
My overcoat is worn
The pockets are all torn
I'm moving away from the pain

Today is easily represented by Bon Jovi lyrics:

Woke up this morning, and rolled out of bed
I felt like a dog who'd been kicked in the head...


and

Cause a bottle of vodka's still lodged in my head
and some blond gave me nightmares, I think that she's still in my bed...


I feel awful.. :(

We keep walking away for no reason at all
And no one says a word
We were always so busy protecting ourselves
We never would have heard
And the rate of attrition for lovers like us
Is steadily on the rise
Nobody's in love this year
Not even you and I

Due to lack of commitment on both of our parts
We're going our separate ways
This show of indifference is breaking our hearts
It's making us crazy, yeah
You sit back and wait for your love to accrue
You'll be waiting a long, long time
Nobody's in love this year
Not even you and I

I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to get hurt
I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to be the one who gets left behind

We keep walking away for no reason at all
For the sake of being free
No one's invested enough of themselves
To yield to maturity
And the rate of attrition for lovers like us
Is steadily on the rise
Nobody's in love this year
Nobody wants to try
Nobody's in love this year
Not even you and I

I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to get hurt
I don't want to be Mr. Vulnerable
I don't want to be the one who gets left behind


Thank you, Mr. Zevon. And now, on with the show. Our next guest...(fades)

from one of the quote books that [livejournal.com profile] euthros gave me:

Shakespeare - Sonnet 129
Th'expense of spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action; and till action, lust
Is perjured, murd'rous, bloody, full of blame,
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust;
Enjoyed no sooner but despised straight;
Past reason hunted, and no sooner had,
Past reason hated as a swallowed bait,
On purpose laid to make the taker mad;
Mad in pursuit, and in possession so,
Had, having, and in a quest to have, extreme;
A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe;
Before, a joy proposed; behind, a dream.
All this the world well knows, yet none knows well
To shun the heaven that leads men to hell.

Personally, I'm okay with lust, but i thought this was clever.

Three important rules for breaking up
Don't put off breaking up when you know you want to
Prolonging the situation only makes it worse
Tell him honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly
Don't make a big production
Don't make up an elaborate story
This will help you avoid a big tear jerking scene
If you wanna date other people say so
Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected
Even if you've gone together for only a short time,
And haven't been too serious,
There's still a feeling of rejection
When someone says she prefers the company of others
To your exclusive company,
But if you're honest, and direct,
And avoid making a flowery emotional speech when you break the news,
The boy will respect you for your frankness,
And honestly he'll apeciate the kind of straight foward manner
In which you told him your decision
Unless he's a real jerk or a cry baby you will remain friends

today, i am happy about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiBKXLHn75w really bad hair and bizarre videos, as well as sexy british accents. ...

today, i am less happy about: the fact that it's 3am and i'm awake. wtf, work.

today, i wish that: it were 9 or 10 am and i was awake, dressed and fully prepared to face the day...but until then:

love me or hate me, it's still an obsession
love me or hate me, that is the question
if you love me, then thank you
if you hate me, then fuck you...

(don't worry, this entry will be edited later in the day, but i wanted to share this video with y'all coz ...well, tetris)

If we stand side by side (all night)
There's a chance we'll get by (and it's alright)
And I'll know that you'll be live
In my heart till the day that I die

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

Hello, CD listeners. You have come to the point in this album where those listening on cassette or record will have to stand up or sit down and turn over the record or tape. In fairness to those listeners, we will now take a few seconds before we begin side two.






Thank you. Here's side two.

The reason why...
oh I can't say....

for those interested in death guild, but didn't understand what max meant with his music description: http://www.live365.com/stations/deathguild

requires you to register, but it's free, and there are some decent stations other than deathguild on there. ;) Also, for those into the goth scene, but don't have the music to hand, check it out. I just listened to nin, sisters of mercy, and massive attack. not a bad selection.

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down...

...Happy Valentine's Day
Every day the 14th!
I don't think y'all heard me!
I just wanna say Happy Valentine's Day!
Every day the 14th!
Can y'all dig that?
Now when arrows don't penetrate, see
Cupid grabs the pistol (Uh, yeah, now, now lookie here!)
And he shoots straight for your heart
And when he won't miss you!...

...Cupid hath pulled back his sweetheart's bow
To cast divine arrows into her soul
To grab her attention swift and quick
Or morrow the marrow of her bones be thick
With turpentine kisses and mistaken blows...


Two very different songs, both with a reasonable outlook on Valentine's day.

I think I wish I were somewhere or someone else. But I got a rose bush and I'll have dinner tonight.

So, mafi mushkila, we move onwards.

Young boy in the market
Sees the girl alone
And asks her
Have you lost you way home?

She sings
You say the most beautiful things
Just like my violins

I look into your eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

narnia was good. i didnt' think there were huge holes (like, what did the carnivores eat?), but then again, being a theater/fantasy person, i tend to be able to suspend disbelief if the story is good enough. and this one was classic.

and, dude, mr tumnus was really sexy. ;)

best of luck to everyone on finals.

tonite, i get to go shoot pool and have dinner with a coworker who reminds me terribly of the infamous robert. this should prove...interesting, if nothing else. i also brought my *favorite* tea mug (and favorite tea!) to work because drinking non-Lady Grey out of paper cups just wasn't doing it for me.

oooh....barracuda!

it is so fucking cold outside right now, but at the same time, it's really pretty.

i've been feeling a bit down today and yesterday, so i think today, i will make kleenex ghosties for halloween. i also have some lights i should put up.

i filed my bain & co app last night. i really really want a job with them, but i didn't manage to make it to more than their initial information session... so, no networking. that's always a bad sign, but hopefully the fact that i've just graduated and am willing to start immediate employment will sway them to look more favorably on my app. c'est la vie.

take me home tonight
listen honey
just like ronnie sang
be my little baby...
