i hear the nbc comedies are reruns tonight too. rude.  
I. My alarm did not go off this morning. More specifically, my alarm did not go off because I set it wrong. That is the hazard of having to set your alarm for a different time every day, I guess. So I woke up at 7:45 with class (and a quiz) at 8:30. I live, like, 50ish minutes form campus. HA HA, no. I got to class with 15 minutes left to write the stupid test. Luckily (?) this didn't matter because I had no idea what any of the material was about anyway so GO TEAM RANDOMLY CIRCLING ANSWERS. For real, it was a quiz on the article we had to read for class and the article might have well been written in French for all that I took from it. That in addition to the midterm I had on Monday for which I evidently studied the wrong things, I have basically reached this point:

II. Hey, remember that time they cancelled my seminar and I went to talk to the Faculty and its president and they were all "yeah we'll get on that and let you know"? As far as I can tell they did neither of the above. So I just sent another email being like "um???" Omg just let me into one of your boring seminars so I can graduate and have an existential crisis.

III. If those first two paragraph did not give it away, I am so done with school rn. I had midterms and stuff this week and ugh, so over it tbh. BUT after today I have a week off? Because we get a week off in the fall now ever since... a student... committed suicide a couple years ago. Errrrrr. But a fall break will be nice, even if I have nothing planned and most people I am friends with don't go to my university and do not have a week off. I will probably just sit at home and watch Community and Misfits because that is how cool I am.

IV. On a similar note, Halloween is in eleven days and I have no costume planned or plans... planned. My one friend has hosted a Halloween party every year since we were like 14, but last year's ended in vomit and disaster so she is understandably reluctant. (Though, like, protip? We're all adults, we've all been drinking legally for years, have you considered NOT DRINKING SO MUCH YOU PASS OUT IN YOUR OWN VOMIT? Ugh.) One of my friends suggested "going out" but omg the only thing that appeals less to me than clubbing is clubbing surrounded by ninety Sexy Witches, Sexy Nurses and Sexy Vampires while I am dressed as a pumpkin or whatever the fuck. ...So that is the sad state of my social life rn. lol the other day my mom asked me if I talk to any of my friends anymore. THANKS, MOM.

IV. HAHA this entry turned so bitchy, that was not my intention. I'm just killing time before class at 2:30. Here is a fic rec:

Amy Pond and the Year That Never Was by snowdarkred
~2,700 words, PG-13, Amy, Rory, Martha
She keeps thinking that the Doctor will save her, he will, her raggedy Doctor, but he doesn’t. It’s just Amy and the cold sky, all alone as the human race suffers in the distance.

Does what it says on the tin, basically. I've wondered for a while about Amy in the Year That Wasn't, though admittedly I've mostly just used the opportunity to lol. But this was a good serious take on it, and I like the way the author plays with Amy Pond's magical ability to remember things other people can't.

V. Lastly, I see on the interwebs that according to DWM (lol @ them reporting on this) Much Ado About Nothing will be available on DVD for Christmas? IDK how reputable the source is but that is exciting if true. IT'S MY BIRTHDAY GIFT TO ME.

Bonus points if you read that in the correct Disney character's voice, btw.

The only good thing about The Office being a repeat tonight is that I can get some GRE test prep done.

I haven't watched The Office this season, but I'm down to just Parks & Rec, Community and Modern Family as weekly shows, so not having Parks & Rec or Community means... just Modern Family. Oh well. Misfits starts soon at least lol. HERE'S HOPING IT DOESN'T SUCK.

I know! And Amy got to be awesome without overshadowing Martha's awesome! That's one thing that makes me wary of other-companions-in-that-time fic.

Was that the dramacouch party? With Mark being a winner et al?

I don't understand university administration; it's like they are paid to hate students and make our lives hell. Like the program I'm in rn? It's theoretically ~the best program of its kind you will all get jobs~ but nobody gives a fuck about us and the Library Department keeps changing credit timeframes and then being like OH RIGHT SORRY YOU EXIST WE FORGOT ABOUT YOU BECAUSE YOU DON'T MATTER TO US XD. Like literally my prof was talking about curriculum changes and I was like UUUH HOW DOES THAT APPLY TO HILS STUDENTS and he was like LOL YOU DIDN'T EVEN OCCUR TO US, SRY. And the rest of the class was like :O

I think you need to start getting bitchy with those people. I've learned that they respond to aggression.

I am sorry about social life and stuff, bb. I have weeks like that too where I am just like I HAVE NO FRIENDS NOBODY UNDERSTANDS ME I MAY AS WELL JUST STARE AT THE WALL AND WATCH MY OFFICE DVDS AND THINK ABOUT HOW NOBODY WILL EVER LOVE ME. And tbh, I would rather cut off my own head and use it as a punch bowl than go clubbing on Halloween (lol do you think there will be sexy aids nurses?)

LOL NO he was not invited. It was just everyone getting drunk off their face including the host. It was basically us + her friends from school and all her friends from school got shitfaced while the rest of us were like "OH LAWD".



I will see how they reply after this email I sent being like "UM????"

I'm not like super emo about it, at least not at the moment, but it does make life pretty dull and I always feel quite pathetic when I spend a weekend reading lj and getting angry at Tumblr or whatever instead of going out and interacting with real people.

*Pats you* Your school sounds annoying.

You have an iphone, right? Could you set up a bunch of different alarms at different times so they go off every week?

And lol clubbing is the worst.

fauxkarenfauxkaren on October 20th, 2011 06:13 pm (UTC)
ALL of NBC's Thursday night comedies are re-runs? BOOOOO. I knew Community was a rerun, but didn't know about the others.

My friends and I have had an annual Halloween party since we were in junior high, but it's never on Halloween (it's on the 29th this year), so I have Halloween-adjacent plans but no actual Halloween plans. And I haaaate dressing up in costume, so I have no idea what I'm going to do on that front either.

I. OMG! I had nearly the EXACT SAME MORNING! I managed to completely forget to set my alarms last night and I had work lined up this morning at a school that was new to my agency so they were counting on me to really represent them and such. I'd been planning to catch the 7:30 train and make a really good impression by arriving early and all that.

And then I woke up at 7:45. And I freaked! I basically jumped out of bet, threw on clothing, grabbed my bad and ran out the door. I didn't even brush my hair. And then I RAN to the overground station. I made the 8:00 train like JUST. I was insanely lucky and there was a bus almost right away after the train so I didn't have to waste time waiting and by some miracle I made it to the school by 8:25 (at which point I was left waiting outside the office for 20 minutes before someone took me to the classroom I was in - I was not impressed with the competence of this school's office staff - everyone else was super nice though so that's good). Anyway it turned out fine and I totally wowed them with my on the spot lesson planning and management skills and basically 3 people complimented me in person today so I think that makes up for the almost lateness however it is NOT A FUN WAY TO START THE DAY! Ugh for your exam though. I hope it turns out okay. It sounds like you really are ready to be done!

III. I have next week off also! (It's half term here) And I'm broke so I won't be going much of anywhere (I'm planning to do lots of writing though) We should totally arrange a skype date on one of those days when we're both off. It would be epic and awesome and we can flail about the possible release of MAAN. (WANT RIGHT NOW)

IV. You are the second person on my list to rec this. I may have to read it. But not tonight. Just spent two hours reading an AMAZING River/Eleven NOIR fic of awesome. It's incredible and everyone should read it. (it's AU but it takes the good bits of S6 and uses them 2000000 x better than Moffat did) It also has a lot of awesome River/Eleven moments that I can support! Link in case you're curious: http://humansrsuperior.livejournal.com/197894.html

V. LOL clearly I should have read this post before I sent that email. You will all probably now mock me for my over-excitement. But hey, even if it is only DWM it's in print and that's a step up from just hearsay so I'm allowing myself to get excited about it now.

Omg that sounds horrific. LOL DID YOU HAVE TO RUN UP ANY LONG ESCALATORS IN TUBE STOPS? That is the worst. It is a really stressful start to the day.

We should! I'll email you. I don't really have any plans this week yet lolll so I'm probably mostly around.

I've seen that fic around! I used to read her Doctor/Rose fic lol. I am not much into Eleven/River or AUs usually, though I guess an AU of Eleven/River probably wouldn't have half the things that bug me about how they played out.

Completely unrelated to this post, but—apart from Much Ado, obviously, did you do anything vaguely-DW-related in London that you'd recommend?

THIS ENTRY MAKES ME SAD. But i feel you on all counts.

Halloween ugh. I love it so much but I am always disappointed. Brynn and I are doing X-Men Halloween, so we're dressing up as Rogue and Wolverine on Halloween, meaning that she is just Wolverine and I am Rogue dressed as Velma from Scooby Doo because Rogue would dress up but Wolverine would be like fuck that. (Realistically, I'm just Velma and she's Wolverine, but I might wear gloves because we wanted our costumes to go together)


I look forward to that fic.

Also I recognize that quote but suspect it's from Emperor's New Groove which is not my fave so eh.
