...he really talks in caps IRL...really. After LOTR, he's doing Princess Bride and then The Sandman comics...

"I can believe things that are true and things that aren't true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they're true or not.

I can believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Beatles and Marilyn Monroe and Elvis and Mister Ed. Listen - I believe that people are perfectable, that knowledge is infinite, that the world is run by secret banking cartels and is visited by aliens on a regular basis, nice ones that look like wrinkled lemurs and bad ones who mutilate cattle and want our water and our women.

I believe that the future sucks and I believe that the future rocks and I believe that one day White Buffalo Woman is going to come back and kick everyone's ass. I believe that all men are just overgrown boys with deep problems communicating and that the decline in good sex in America is coincident with the decline in drive-in movie theaters from state to state.

I believe that all politicians are unprincipled crooks and I still believe that they are better than the alternative. I believe that California is going to sink into the sea when the big one comes, while Florida is going to dissolve into madness and alligators and toxic waste.

I believe that antibacterial soap is destroying our resistance to dirt and disease so that one day we'll all be wiped out by the common cold like martians in War of the Worlds.

I believe that the greatest poets of the last century were Edith Sitwell and Don Marquis, that jade is dried dragon sperm, and that thousands of years ago in a former life I was a one-armed Siberian shaman.

I believe that mankind's destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it's aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle, that there's a cat in a box somewhere who's alive and dead at the same time (although if they don't ever open the box to feed it it'll eventually just be two different kinds of dead), and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.

I believe in a personal god who cares about me and worries and oversees everything I do. I believe in an impersonal god who set the universe in motion and went off to hang with her girlfriends and doesn't even know that I'm alive. I believe in an empty and godless universe of causal chaos, background noise, and sheer blind luck.

I believe that anyone who says sex is overrated just hasn't done it properly. I believe that anyone who claims to know what's going on will lie about the little things too.

I believe in absolute honesty and sensible social lies. I believe in a woman's right to choose, a baby's right to live, that while all human life is sacred there's nothing wrong with the death penalty if you can trust the legal system implicitly, and that no one but a moron would ever trust the legal system.

I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you're alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it."— Neil Gaiman


Random update to this almost abandoned blog (I still read everyone else's though) to bring you:


...I know what I'm asking for next year for Christmas. (And before you say I'm too old there's a Millenium Falcon Lego set sitting on our kitchen table that my dad just got from my grandparents for his birthday because he asked for it!)

...also, why don't I have any LotR icons? Hmmm....

AND KAT! And Brittles too! My mom wants me "to make play dates"....WHEN ARE YOU AVAILABLE? XD


Oct. 25th, 2011


Nothing much has changed. Still at home. Still doing stuff around the house. I do have an on and off job...sort of. I dog/house sit for a friend of both of my grandmothers. So, yay!

Hopefully going into Chicago this weekend.

Planning on staying in early Halloween night before going out for coffee and pie around midnight...maybe.

Been making Christmas presents for my friends in Chicago...will probably start making ones for my friends in Rockford too!

As an example: NYAN PICARD! Which I couldn't NOT share once he was done!

Annnnnnnndddddddddddddd....that's it for now. Blame Tumblr.



Got my e-mail to let me onto Pottermore today! My s/n is HowlIce45 if anybody else is on the beta.


I got sorted into Gryffindor. I don't know how...especailly when I knew some of answers to the questions I ended up with should have put me in Ravenclaw...weird....

Thinking of being a burk and just loosing House Points on purpose! XD

Site's down right now (overload of people getting their e-mails?), so blah.

.....real LJ update may be coming in a day or two!


It wasn't for awhile there...

...though I guess I really wasn't using it anyways...


I do read posts...I just forget to comment and post myself ^_^'

I'm still not dead...

Aren't you glad?

My mom's finally recovered enough to not need help all the time, so yay! But the job thing in New York never got off the ground and Yellowstone doesn't seem to be working out soooo...

...on the job hunt. Really don't care any more. I just need one...

Also, horrible allergens this year have fucked with my asthma...went for a short bike ride only to have it feel like my lungs collapsed upon themselves. yay me...

Only thing on the plus lately is that Game of Thrones continues to be amazing and wonderful...but that's about all...

I am just in a period of discontent. Nothing is horrible, but I'm not necessarily happy with anything going on right now.

...I want to go to Disneyland...


Now That I Have A Moment...


The 12th was busy busy. I ran around campus doing things, finished packing, cleaning, then I officially checked out of my dorm. Following that was getting to the hotel (downtown), rush eating, and ruch getting ready before returning to campus for the awards ceremony. Which were cool. My feet were dead by the end, and it was rather hot, but it was nice seeing friends I wouldn't see during graduation (BA and BS are split into two different ceremonies, with the exception of a few BA in Anth and something else). Got back to the hotel rather late at night.

However, same day I was told my mom went into surgery...more on that in a bit....but it meant both her and my grandmother weren't making it to either event.

Friday was just as crazy but for different reasons. At least I had time to properly get ready and the temperature was a lot nicer for being dressed up. Ah la la la...I graduated. Still was freaky being one of the first ones up on stage though (Anthropology is the first major in the Sciences to walk, and my name is one of the first ones).

Took awhile to find my dad afterwards and even longer to get out of the parking garage and home.

Saturday I went with my dad to see my mom (3 hour drive there and back).

...she almost died. When they went in on Thursday it was because my mom was in a lot of pain and convinced them not to wait until Friday. Once they got in, they found out her intestine was ready to burst. It was all a very close call....but everything is fixed now.

Sunday, Monday, and most of Tuesday was spent cleaning. My mom came home Tuesday night. Been spending time helping take care of her (she's walking and doing well, even has her staples out already, but can't do everything and is still in a lot of pain), and entertaining my visiting aunt.

I am so tired. I need to start putting in for jobs.

So, yeah. That's been my life for the past week.

Crazy crazy...


Holy Shit...

...so, in a week from now (exactly) I will be getting read for my honors convocation, and a week from tomorrow I will be graduating from college...

...I am SO not ready. Not in the least bit.

Only have one final left, and it's not until Monday afternoon. Been going a bit crazy. Luckily I have to do volunteer work Saturday and Sunday so I won't go entirely mad.

But still. Too much time to think and such and it's making me slightly depressed.

...mostly because I don't know what I'm doing after I graduate. Trying just to secure a summer job is going to be a pain enough. A permanent job seems unreachable.

So, yeah.

Right. I should be studying/getting other things ready (even if I have lots of time left over for that stuff).


Really Now? Loyola, Really?

Needless to say you've all probably seen pictures of Chicago along the lake, not all that far from my school...

Most of the side streets are still impossible, never mind that the sidewalks are questionable at best. I know this because I was just outside wandering around, getting coffee from one of the few places that are open...

And yet we have classes tomorrow here at my school...

No, really.

I think we are the ONLY school in Chicago, if not all of northern Illinois, that has classes.


But, I need to go to my first class. It's ceramics and I wanted to go in today, but while the building was open, the classroom was locked. I'm in the middle of piecing a vase-like thing together from many many parts and I don't was the clay to go all icky on me. Plus it's due next Tuesday XD

So, yeah. Classes...


...Loyola, you fail to impress...
