-I'm translating a court case (for money! Wheeee!!) set in Colombia and I'm at the point where I have maaaybe 10 hours left to go and all I can do is stare at these pages and go "noooooo you cannot make me. Pleeeeeeease don't make me, pleeeeeeeeeease" and then I go watch Person of Interest and have feelings. Since Reese cannot, I am making up for them with plenty to spare. Apparently.
-Also while I was screwing around I watched the last couple episodes of Community. Which - I nearly died with glee at what I want
to call Digital Get-Down but was really Digital Estate Planning. ( Spoilers for month-old episodes. I guess.Collapse )
And those costumes were supremely rad.
So, I'm prepared to treat this last episode as the series finale. It wrapped up everything nicely, and was adorable and funny and, frankly, FUCK YOU, SONY. You have lost my trust.
-HUNGER GAMES. HUNGER GAMES. I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT HUNGER GAM
ES. I am halfway through the second book and currently on a forced break because it lets me think and digest the book so much better. Even though it feels like I will die if I don't read the next part. I really strongly feel that there's some message in these books that compare our society with the one displayed via Panem, but that I'm just too stupid to see it. I keep saying "it's an allegory for...for...for..." and NEVER REACH A CONCLUSION. But, wow, do I want to talk for hours about every little thing in this book.
-Hmm. I'm overdramatic about the word die.
-Laurie was here, visiting me, which was both lovely and money-draining because despite her attempt at planning, she didn't really have enough money for food. So...most of that came from me. Which, okay, she'd do the same for me...but she's got a job and I really, really don't. But, to be fair, she bought food for the first 3 days. So that was good, I guess. And also, she's the one who hooked me up with the translation job, so money will be coming from there in a few months.
-I have this bird, which looks kind of like a jackdaw, come to my balcony every day and dig through my plants to see if there are worms there. There are not, bird. Go away. I cannot communicate this more clearly than I already do, by charging you and yelling every time we see each other. YOU ARE KILLING MY PLANTS. I DO NOT LIKE IT.
-I'm sticking with Once Upon a Time because my family loves it and it gives us something to talk about, but it's pretty consistently been disappointing since they hit double-digit episodes. I still love the female characters, but I don't love their development of Mary Margaret. ( I don"t think these even count as spoilers anymore, but...just in case.Collapse )
-Okay, well, now I have to get some work done. Time to put my big girl boots on and finish at least one more page.
-I HEART KATNISS. KATNISS 4-EVA. etc, etc. (But, boy, can she be dense sometimes. Come on, girl! Get it together!) Also: the third book ends in a threesome, yes? DON'T TELL ME IF THAT'S NOT THE CASE. I KNOW IN MY HEART OF HEARTS THAT IT EN
DS THAT WAY, JUST AS ABED AND TROY MARRY AND HAVE LOT
