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.

Thing I am happy about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6oUz1v17Uo This is the most brilliant video ever. Seriously.
Thing I am less happy about: I'm tired. Because I'm tired, I'm distracted. Because I'm distracted, I'm not doing any work.
Thing I am working on: Maintaining an even keel, and hoping that the pancakes I made this morning won't make me sick.
prismakaos: (Default)
Thing I am happy about: today's been sort of a non-day. I haven't really done much, don't really plan on doing much, and generally feel like I might have accomplished more had I stayed in bed.
Thing I am less happy about: Again, with the non-day, I'm not really unhappy about anything either.
Thing I'm working on: doing work. Yeah, yeah, I'll get to it eventually. :P

Tonight I get to hang out with The Other Woman. Actually, in this case, I might be the other woman, but whatever. It's still uncomfortable, and I hate drama. (Actually, you could have guessed this last from the millions of entries I've written saying that recently.) The rest of the day has been relatively good. I was productive at work, and lo and behold, I did (mostly) clean my apartment. You can see the floor now. It's actually beige, not miscellaneous-stuff-colored.

Thing I am happy about: Right now? This: http://youtube.com/watch?v=77zxCAfVeD8 Also, the fact that after 6 hours of work, my apartment is liveable again. Good thing, too, since Alexandra is spending the night.
Thing I am less happy about: The price of airplane tickets to various locations, including but not limited to Ohio and Japan.
Thing I am working on: Maintaining a good attitude and optimizing awkwardness.

::bounces around:: It's so Friday.....

And I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again.

Well, no, I do. I'm going home, and I'll be there until Tuesday.

There was a wedding (congratulations to Nancy and Albert!!) and hanging out with gamers and making pizza in the city and getting hit on by a 21 year old and sleeping on a loveseat and more hanging out with gamers and end of World of Warcraft tabletop and pretty views of the Bay late late at night and tapping a deer while driving back from said pretty views. End of weekend.

I'm endeavoring to make this weekend as much fun, though the only concrete plan I have is homework. This is midly terrifying -- I have homework, and it may not be simple. I'm taking two classes (with a third starting in November). The first one is a marketing class taught according to a curriculum at the Haas MBA school at Berkeley. The second is an intro to Java class at Stanford. The third is (what else?) New Kingdom Egypt literature, also at Stanford. So, Mondays and Tuesdays (and eventually Thursdays) will be bad for me trying to do anything. Which is why I went to see a movie at 10pm last night. Never mind my propensity for staying up late in general anyway.

Ironically, I'm more awake after a week of not drinking caffeine (minus a small incident where I forgot that Dr Pepper contains caffeine and drank a full glass of it before being rather embarrassed) and sleeping too little than I have been when I used to drink lots of coffee and sleep too much. I'm wondering if the caffeine had some weird interaction with my body chemistry that didn't used to exist. Slowing metabolism? Who knows. In any case, I may just have to give up caffeine permanently, as much as I love coffee and tea. It also probably helps that Lou is staying in my apartment -- there's no way in hell *anyone* who broke in would get close enough to hurt me with Lou around. Probably this certainty is making me sleep better. Who knows?

I'm REI-bound in the next week or so. I'm likely going camping/hiking/somethingorother in Yosemite in a couple of weeks for a weekend. I'm terribly excited -- I miss being outdoors. And drinking tea (caffeinated or otherwise) in slightly cold weather. I'll never admit to sometimes liking being cold, but sometimes it's kind of nice, despite how much I'll complain about it.

I need to write a snippet, but I'm having problems thinking of something to write about. I write so much in my livejournal and was planning a DnD campaign for 6 months that I've kind of forgotten how to write about something that isn't terribly concrete. I really want to go home and sit in some crunchy leaves and write about being in Massachusetts sitting in a pile of crunchy leaves, but it's a long trip to write a snippet. I'm sure I'll think of something - suggestions are welcome, fiction & non-fiction alike.

Now I have Dido's "White Flag" stuck in my head. Have a video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=BhGHLC0tbcw

So I got to ride in a Z at over 120 mph. Thoughts:

Car pretty. Goes fast. Sounds loud. I'm gonna die. Do it again?

I'm definitely in need of some crazy in my life - right now, it's all contained within me, and that's a bad way to be. I need a car, so I can go drive to the beach at midnight, look up at the moon, and get arrested by cops.

Maybe not the latter.

It's almost Friday - this weekend came quickly. Amazingly, the caffeine detox is going relatively well. I have SO MUCH ENERGY, holy crap, I cannot express this to you. Sadly, still suffering from a headache, but don't worry, Rico Suave is there to save me.

I've also since decided that this is an "I ate toast and got angsty about it" blog, not just the run of the mill "I ate toast this morning" blog. I can't decide whether toast with angst is better than toast without.

In other news, I got pwned at pool last night. It was awesome, since I was actually playing okay, so it was a good challenge. He threw the last game, though, and let me win. Either that, or he was coming off of a caffeine high and I was coming onto a sugar high.

It worries me that some people have said that I'm a total basket case. I know I'm a little spastic, but I didn't think that I was this bad. I used to be all quiet and serious.

I'm so tired, it's only Wednesday, and I'm going up to the city tonight to see Air in concert. Should be a good time, although I don't know how much sleep I'll acquire.

There will be a computer in my apartment soon. It will be amusing, since, um, where the hell am I going to put it?

I get so impatient waiting for people to respond to IMs. I see the little "[screenname] is typing..." and I'm like "C'mon, c'mon!!! Hurry up."

So to pass the time, I write LJ entries like this one. Write, write, write. I SHOULD be watching Death Note epi 2 so I can go to bed and curl in my covers and sleep, but instead, I'm not. This is mainly coz I'm watching the epis on the TV, but trying to have a conversation means that I can't actually read whatever they're writing. Apparently, my TV operates in 480x640 resolution. Who knew.

Actually, I lied. The conversation is more or less easy to read on the screen. I just have to squint a little bit. S-video cable is the OMGBESTESTTHINGEVAR.

Although, don't even get me started on Fry's. Their audio cable section makes baby Jesus cry. I swear, trying to find a headphone extension cord was impossible. I eventually ended up with a male to male 1/8" cord, a female 1/8" to male RCA connector, a female to female RCA connector, a second male RCA to female 1/8" and a pair of headphones to extend them. At that point, I threw up my hands and went to Radio Shack, where they had a headphone extension cord. Frankenjacks make me really really sad. SO INELEGANT!!! Which just goes to prove my point - never go to Fry's when you can go to Radio Shack for the same thing. Costs a little more, but at least it makes more sense. And actually, all the stuff combined that I would have had to buy from Fry's added up to more than what I ended up buying.

Tragically, I also go to bed too early. Or something. I hate it when I have a completely different schedule than most other people I know. When people say "Hey, let's hang out!" and it's 9pm, my initial reaction is, "But, I was about to go to bed." When did I get so old?

Other things...started watching Death Note, I like it so far. If you haven't seen it, go check it out - it reminds me oddly enough of the way The-Guy-Who-Did-Princess-Mononoke-et-al presented things. Or maybe it's just good anime and, having never really been exposed to it, I'm easily impressed.

I could have been married to a buffle-brained prince by now and had several buffle-brained children! (Which is a paraphrase/quote from a book that I read the other day...)

Why do I have the song "In Public" by Kelis featuring Nas stuck in my head?

Does anybody know anything about the manga/anime series Death Note? Like, is it worth buying/subscribing to?

(Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Death Note: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Note )

Hi Manu!! Hope things are well in Germany! :)

moog...

i sort of just want to crawl under my desk and take a nap. my tummy is failing to function correctly today, but i can't figure out whether it's because of the change in weather (cold to just right to really damn stuffy/hot in my apartment), my allergies, my insomnia (possibly a combination of stress, allergies and heat), the stress of going to dublin (leaving saturday!), the stress of moving offices to the Great Nothingness, the oreos and fruit roll-ups i gorged myself on yesterday, the waking up at 5am for two days in a row, the 12 hours I worked yesterday (and the threat of another 12 hours today), or the 14-hour-old sushi I had last night.

...okay, so maybe i can figure this out. Hey, at least there aren't any boy problems.
