obsession stikes again

I absolutely cannot stop listening to this song. I was channel surfing the other night and came across "Party Monster" and to be completely honest didn't like it all that much. But this song. THIS SONG! I most especially am in love with the super cute Chloe Sevigny part towards the beginning, not really sure why, but that one tiny part just makes the song for me.

/omg I need better things to do with my time

So this ended up being more like 20in7 but WHATEV, I'm just really proud/excited that I finished, even if it was at 11:21 pm on the 20th... haha

Flist... I'm so bummed.

I'm signed up for the current round of Bones 20in20 and I cannot for the life of me find a *free* imaging program that will actually allow me to make decent icons. When I was still in school I had access to Photoshop, CS3 and CS4, and I missssssssssssssss it so much. Other programs and website have proven to be mediocre and finding my way around them is taking up all of my time and more importantly all of my patience.

SO: does anyone have any good solutions *cough*links*cough that could be helpful?

I really hope this gets me somewhere, it would suck for April 20th to roll around and for me to have about 5 super lame icons to post.

Bonjour mes nouveaux amis

I'm soooooooo excited for new friends! It really has been rather a long time since I've done the whole lj-friending thing, so I might be a bit rusty, but I'll work on it.

Also, I'm sort of realizing that people appreciate updates, even if I think they're boring, it's probably better than nothing at all so...

/haha omg, this is not going well. um... maybe as practice, I'll just make a list of 3 things that I thought were rather great and maybe the rest will come back to me in time. here goes:

• took the poodles (emphasis on the "s" there, we have 3, we are actually "those crazy poodle people") to the dog park today, which is always great because mostly I end up seeing lots and lots of young (read: my age) couples walking their super cute like rescued mutts and it totally didn't make me resent the fact that I'm living with my parents and all I ever do is apply to grad programs. /sarcasm wow

• I had yet another ginormous starbucks extravaganza today, so far my third in less than 48 hours. I think I have a serious problem. I'm totes broke right now and all I ever spend money on is giant plastic cups that will kill the earth that I so claim to love and just... those fucking soy lattes are amazing and I can't stop myself.

• I've realized that not being in school has turned me into a lunatic. I miss biology classes so much that I forced my parents to let me butterfly chickens for dinner (mind you, I'm like... idek, 99.5% vegan when I'm living by myself) and proceeded to do so while wearing blue nitrile gloves and trying to show my father how much I know about spinal anatomy. This only resulted in my father getting super grossed out and leaving the room in a rather mean cloud of insults and me wishing I had thought ahead enough to put on my white labcoat. IF I DON'T GET TO WORK IN A LAB ASAP I THINK I COULD REALLY JUST BURST.

Okay, so that went better than expected.

AAAAAAAAND to round things off, here's a link to what is so far proving to be a really quality friending meme:

time means nothing...

lol irrelevant title is irrelevant. mostly it's just a line that's repeating over and over in the song that is playing as background noise.

onto bigger and better new which IS that it's meme time once again! I really never grow sick of these, I don't think anyone reads them anymore but I could care less, I love them.

this one was stolen lovingly borrowed from fiery_twilight.

1. Stop what you're doing. Print Screen.
2. Print screen your current desktop.
3. If you have Photoshop PSP open, print screen.
4. If you have a music player open, print screen.
5. Pick a folder, open it, print screen.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm, yep, that's pretty much all I've got. Unless you're really hard up for stories about weight watchers meetings, taking 3 poodles for daily walks, being eternally single, and just generally playing housewife (for my father and step-mother), in which case let me know, I've got a LOT of material.

Baby got back.

Did anyone else notice just how much of last night's episode of Bones involved Brennan chowing down? Like, everything totally lovely about Hank and Booth and Booth and Bones etc etc, it was like an all you can eat buffet for our fave forensic anthropologist. And to top off my weird fascination with the whole thing, I've made my first ever attempt at a (very tiny) picspam. It's actually more like a banner, but I tried.

Bonjour darlings

Hello flist, long time no posting!

This weekend was really nice, it was Homecoming so a few friends made the schlep to come visit and it was great to see them, I've been missing everyone who's already graduated. Um... didn't do much as far as school's concerned but there wasn't really much to do anyway so my weekend of slacking should be fine in the end. And yeah, that's really my big news, other than that it's been all Biochemistry and Physics for me hence no posting. Well... and watching Bones and freaking out over new Gaga songs and performances (OMG SNL, totally epic appearance!!!)

Ooooh, one last thing, I've *finally* made the Bones header I've been meaning to make for weeks now, I'm pretty happy with it, it's my first Photoshop project in quite sometime. Check it out here!

Hope you're all doing well!
