I don't know why I find this ironic

So. Evidently, I'm like, allergic to the sun. The sun!


I started taking low hormone birth control two months ago because I have ridiculously painful cramps and they totally took care of the cramps, I didn't even have to take advil last month! But uh. Evidently birth control can make you more photosensitive and my incredibly pale ass has become like, allergic, to uv rays or some such bullshit. Unfair, unfair!

In other news: I am lusting over these two pairs of shoes hardcore.

And lastly, some music for your Tuesday afternoon:

[ Stupid, Dumb, Hyphy ] -- because everyone should partake of the Yay Area's newest slang phenom.

[ Muse vs Britney Spears - Supermassive Black Hole/Do Something ] -- sometimes mashups hit everything right, this one does.

[ The Clash - Police on my Back ] -- like David Bowie, the Clash have a tendency to make everything better for me.

[ Hedwig and the Angry Inch - Wig in a Box ] -- one of my friends sang an acoustic cover of this the other week and it was awesome.


I officially hate all of you

Dead!

I have a like/hate relationship with my recs site. I like it because it's useful to have all of my recs in one place, I hate it because it's completely unsearchable and I wish it could be more organized. So I pretty much spent the weekend being bludgeoned by efiction and mysql and mods to turn efiction into a recs engine and just. I cannot do it. It was too much for me. Seriously. I'm giving up. If any of you are better at this than I and feel like lending a hand I would totally love you forever. And possibly mail you chocolates (or cookies!)

In fact, the only thing that gave me any hope at all was when I gave up and started working on a news updates page for the website for the infoshop I helped start; and wordpress is incredibly simple to install and modify and at least now I don't feel like a complete failure at all this database driven website stuff.

Although dude. I totally accidentally came out (as a slasher/complete and utter fangeek) when I emailed the test wordpress site to the other guy who does the infoshop's website. I totally didn't even think about the fact that I was testing it on my fannish website. Ooops?

Completely unrelated, I saw the movie Brick the other day and loved it. It seems like one of those movies that people are either going to love or hate. It's really stylized. I've been calling it surrealist noir. It's a noir style drama set in high school in this incredibly dark version of California. My friend and I thought it was rad but someone else in the theatre left partway through. Either way, the previews don't really do it justice but if you've ever liked noir or detective movies or indie movies in general, you'll probably appreciate the movie for what it is.

Also, this is a little late but I wanted to wish one of my favorite ljers a happy birthday, so: Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] saturn92103!

my uterus: STAB! stab stabitty stAB stab stab STAB!

me: attempting, with minimal success to refrain from actually killing myself, or at the least, from removing my uterus with a fork. It would honestly feel less worse that way.

officially and for the record: I HATE being a girl. hate hate hate hate hate.

the worst feeling in the world: willing yourself not to throw up because the vicodin will really be kicking in any. goddamned. second. no, really, it will.

in short:
midterms studied for: 0
papers written: 0
vicodin taken: 1000mg
minutes waiting for it to kick in: 48 excruciating minutes and counting
my eternal battle with my body? not looking so good for me at this point.

eta feel free to cheer me up with nice things like porn and icons or 5 page essays on foucault and his critique of the science of sex.

LSAT tomorrow. I am so nervous I want to throw up. My hands are all shaky and I think my skin is trying to commit a very high profile form of mutiny. Send help. Possibly in the form of tranquilizers and genius pills.


i would put hagrid to shame

I just made the most godawful brownies in the history of the world. from a mix for chrissakes. this reminds me of the time I managed to fuck up Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. I make my own pancakes from scratch. I am capable of making complex pies, cookies, cakes, muffins, and thanksgiving fucking dinner from scratch but the one time I think to myself: 'self you are lazy and do not have cocoa, perhaps a nice brownie mix from the store on the corner would be good' I fuck it up.

I'm serious y'all. Hagrid would be afraid to eat these brownies. I very nearly broke my knife trying to cut one. And they took twice as long as the box said to bake before I had to give up and call them done. They went from boiling liquid goo to rock hard in like, two hours once out of the oven. I have created the ice nine* of brownies.

*if you honestly haven't read Cat's Cradle by now you should be ashamed of yourself

Also? When I took that walk to the store? I totally locked myself out of my apartment and had to wait an hour for maintenance to come and let me in.

On the upside:

-My House download only has 17 minutes left.

-I bought the first and second volume of Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan on ebay earlier today.

-I got frustrated with globat's seeming inability to work with firefox and their lame support staff and switched to dreamhost instead. If any of you are interested in signing up with them you can use the promo code KILLERSTAR and get an entire year for only $22.40 (normally $9.95/month).

-And I scored a 165 on my second practice LSAT, which puts me in pretty good running to get the 170 I want (and also puts me safely in the 90th percentile of test takers.)

I'm supposed to rec popslash for [livejournal.com profile] crack_van in September but I completely forgot! A lof of stories I would have recced have already been recced before so I need help.

What are your top 5 favorite popslash stories?

What stories do you go back and re-read?

What authors do you love who are totally underrated?

(nsync or bsb I don't care, any pairing you want)

eta also I once read a story about JC that had him throwing a hurricane party and time like, stopped or something. That's all I can remember. Anyone recognize it? found! it's [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek's 8:88

well my computer is back, MINUS THE HARD DRIVE. fucking AGAIN. oh man I used to love apple but WTF this is so not on having my hd DIE two times in slightly over 7 months. I have just talked to the apple people and evidently, to get my files recovered (if they're recoverable) i have to agree to return the old hd within 30 days or get charged 400 dollars, and I have to pay for someone to try to recover the files. Evidently, the fact that this has happened TWICE in seven fucking months makes no difference whatsoever. and all they can do is lodge my fucking complaint. i have never before felt more like breaking my phone and strangling an apple tech. I don't think I ever thought these words would be said but DONT BUY AN APPLE. jesus. what a fucking let down.

okay im trying to calm down.


some of you guys volunteered to send me mp3 cd's which is the coolest thing ever because I probably need those (last time my data was unrecoverable). so I'm putting a custom friends group together with a post of my contact info. This is completely shameless begging but uh, I think I lost like, hundreds of nsync and lotr media files too, if anyone wanted to send me some I would be forever grateful. So just, uh, let me know if you want to be in that filter, or not, either way.

and yes, I'm well aware that this is completely shallow, I'm lucky I didn't have any majorly important work stuff on there, and I am freaking out about my school files too. fucking hell. i think the loss I mourn most is my fucking EMAILS I had like, thousands upon thousands saved.

omg I'm still so pissed off. Let this be a lesson. Apple, evidently, makes shoddy computers and refuses to take the blame for it (while still charging $1600 for them). and back your fucking files up. i am such a dumbass.
