First of all: morgaine22
, I got your package and OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH! You not only made me smile, you made me make flappy hands of joy and perhaps do a little dance. YOU ARE AWESOME AND ILU! Your food blog has finally been transported to me in an edible format. \0/\0/\0/ Also, I've been going around saying, "I'VE GOT NEW SOCKS ON AND THEY'RE GAY!"
I do not want to be writing this history essay, so instead I will spam you with my random thoughts:
1. I got a speeding ticket for going 84 in a 60. :/ Damn my freaking lead foot. It's $136, but my parents are paying for half of it because I am a spoiled brat. I have to wait a week or something before I can call the County Clerk's office and figure out how to pay by credit card. UGH. I don't know if I can justify buying myself a Xabi Alonso jersey after this, especially after the soul-crushing process of buying all my books for next semester (during which I accidentally bought two copies of The Tale of Genji
oh god why?).
2. In football news, I am just incredibly glad that every time Liverpool plays tepidly, the rest of the big four seem to follow suit. I am incredibly nervous about next week's game against Arsenal. I was happy back when they were beating Chelsea, but now it makes me nervous for us. Meep. At least the Bayern v. Stuttgart game was much more exciting. I swear, every Bundesliga game I've watched recently has devolved into a knock down drag out fight. Like that Schalke v. Hoffenheim game? Damn, guys. Maybe this is why the Bundesliga gets a winter break. To limit the number of death.
Also, just throwing this out there, but sometimes I listen to the Spice Girls and think of Fernando Torres. Like "Too Much" is what he listens to when he's angsting about Sergio
*. Although Miley Cyrus's "See You Again" is all Nando/Stevie G. Nando, bb, what do you do to my brain? Put away the bedazzler.
(you ask what's wrong with me, my best friend xabi says he just bein' nando)
*Omg, upon further listen this is probably the best thought I have had all week. ~he's a lover, I need a frieeeeend
~ Oh god, I'm going to have to make a Spice Girls manip.
3. Watching Heroes
makes me want to cry. Nathan is so far from the character that I fell in love with, and with absolutely no believable arc to have taken him to this point. It kind of sucks to see a character I was so obsessed with become so repugnant. When I think Peter
needs to dump his brother and find a new boyfriend, you know things have gotten bad. Peter & Nathan's relationship was always such an important part of the show, that no matter what either of them did they'd eventually come back to each other. Nathan's actions this season make absolutely no sense. It's like they're trying to Lex Luthor him, but without the five seasons that Smallville
took to make Lex into LEX, to get him from loving Clark to willing to kill him. Wow, when Smallville is the example to look up to, you are one terrible show. I just... someone cannot go from being willing to explode in the sky for someone to caring absolutely nothing for them in the space of six months. It hurts me deep down inside when OTPs crash and burn like this, especially since it's the kind of sense that's non. It's not like Clark and Lex where you were warned beforehand.
I REALLY JUST WANT TO WATCH PRISON BREAK ON MONDAY NIGHTS. I think next semester I am going to just tell my dad that if he wants to suffer through Heroes
, he's on his own. I can't watch them make Nathan into Iron Man in Civil War.
4. At least Eric/Sookie does not disappoint (well, at least in the books). I'm rereading the whole series and I'm halfway through Living Dead in Dallas
right now. Man, I really wish True Blood
would just do a direct book-to-TV translation rather than adding in the tediously boring (and offensive) Jason and Tara storylines. Or at least make them interesting. But I guess you can't make 12 episodes out of that. *sigh*
