“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

lazy days

Watched Nobuta wo Produce 01. SOMEONE IS GOING TO DIE. I don't know if I can stand to keep watching this show. -_-; Let's see, Nobuta's wish for Bando to disappear was canceled, and Akira's which for world peace was canceled, so that leaves the Vice Principal's ...

Movies, Games, Books

Not dead. Also, not unhappy. ^^; Just busy. (Okay, so I'm not that busy.) Saw Gone Baby Gone -- you know, that Ben Affleck movie about the missing kid -- with and J ('s boyfriend) last Friday. Overall I liked it and think it's ...

More on Work

The winning combination turned out to be 1+2+5: I'm working at the library on Tuesdays and Fridays, the used bookstore on Mondays and alternate Sundays, and the lawfirm on Wednesdays. Thanks everyone who commented! Yr. input was v. helpful. On the fandom front: I've been watching ...

Breaking radio silence

Sorry for the long drought between posts. I've been...reading? ^^; And avoiding responsibilities. My laptop's been out for repairs since May. ...And I've been playing FFXII. (Aha! The truth comes out!). Fun game, far too long. I'm at something crazy like 80 hours and ...

My 2012 In Review

I didn't write much this year - or not much fiction anyway. I wrote my masters thesis, and though it could have been much better I am content with the way it came out.  In nonfiction land, I signed on as a contributor to The Hooded Utilitarian. Though I don't have ...

Big Bang @ Prudential Center, 12/9/12

As promised on tumblr. This is very long, so I apologize in advance. ^^ BTW, I'm sitting in a cafe in New Brunswick next to someone using "Fantastic Baby" as a ringtone, and it turns out she was also at the show on Friday. Small world! The New York ...

I turned in my master's thesis. It's kinda weak - I wrote the conclusion in 24 hours including searching for supporting references - but it's a personal milestone for me since it's the longest thing I have ever finished, more-or-less on time. It's 50 pages without references or appendixes (but ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...
