  • While bureaucracy is very fun to write fic about, waiting 3 hours for a 2 minute interview at the American Embassy is not. D:

And, for fandom exercising, DIALOGUE MEME - comment with a character, a situation, a prompt, and I'll write you a one-line bit of dialogue! Feel free to PARRY/BANTER/COUNTER BACK. :D TARGET THE FOLLOWING FANDOMS FOR EXTRA POINTS: Discworld's Moist and Lu Tze books, Lucifer.

[edit] ALSO, everyone should go read today's xkcd, and then Wiki Erdos number, and THEN wiki Erdos-Bacon numbers (as in, Kevin-Bacon-the-actor Bacon), because that article is hilarious for the following paragraph:

The only ways a lower [Erdos-Bacon] number could be achieved would be: )

Also, the new Fullmetal Alchemist:

This is why I put off watching it for so long:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

*rocks back and forth* I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HURT ME, I KNEW HUGHES WOULD TAKE MY HEART AND STOMP ALL OVER IT LIKE IT WAS NOTHING; I KNEW THAT WATCHING HIM AND ROY AND GRACIA AND ELYSIA WAS GOING TO HURT; I KNEW THAT ED WAS GOING TO MAKE ME MENTALLY EXPLODE; I KNEW THAT IN SPITE OF LOVING OKAWA TORU FOREVER THAT MIKI SHIN WAS GOING TO TAKE ROY AND DEVELOP A FACET OF HIM THAT MAKES ME WANT HIS ROY AND OKAWA'S ROY TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM VIOLENTLY MAKING OUT AND AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGH
8th-Jun-2009 12:46 pm - fkjaslfjalsf so much for brains
Only I would be able to live under the illusion that today is the 8th of June and not the 7th, thereby missing the [info]remixredux9 signup deadline completely. Oh, brains, you do me such good turns. 8D Snap for busy days!

to-do before work after work at work:

[x] Pick up mathematics/aesthetics and give them a read through
[] Japanese notes/homework
[x] Get cheques done
[x] Email collaborator
[] pick up Lucifer

I AM AFRAID OF MY WORK EMAIL.

[edit] It took way too much time for me to open that combination safe. Way too much time.

[edit] I have work, and what do I do instead? I fix my CSS so that [info] - livejournal.comkaranguni is more readable, I write posts about the Iliad in allcaps, and general Fail At Life(TM).

9th-May-2009 01:16 pm - Point! To your survival
With the irrational fuel of a human being forced to be pulled, like the tides, by the moon, I shall do this today:

[] Code [info]sister_coyote's layout for LJ/IJ/DW
[] Write a triple bill across VII/Batman Beyond/Gundam Wing, jotting down ideas and random thoughts and Anger At The World on the etherpad, if you want to watch me work and point fingers/laugh.
[] Code up fic and archive it on And More Slow
[x] Read Estraven and quietly rock back and forth in my chair; the local news and the consciousness of the world makes me want to stand up and write and I am so afraid, somedays, of what-will-be-will-be. "Screw this, when I grow up I want to be like Rusty Ryan."

Also, fic writers/readers, what is your favourite font to read in, and what size?

I have recently been overcome with the strangest and most irrational love for Segoe UI, which is, yeah. Thanks, Microsoft.
