Marry me girl, be my fairy to the world, be my very own constellation.

Call me strange, but whenever I listen to Red Hot Chilli Peppers, I get really sad because I start thinking about Kurt Cobain. I have no idea why... It's a really weird link my brain has made and I can't get rid of it. Anyways, I'm feeling much better now. Apologies to anyone who had to put up with my psycho-bitch mood recently.

Oh, by the way, I have a DevArt account now. Add me if I haven't already added you. Nothing on there yet, but I installed Corel Painter 9.0 and will soon reclaim my graphics tablet so that I have another vehicle for procrastination. Also spent about ten minutes taking a stupid photo to use as my DevArt ID.

I hope everybody's well. I miss you guys lots.


I miss you always
when I go to the beach
the sand is wet with
tears that seem mine

although I never weep
and hold you in my
heart with a very real
humor you'd be proud of

God, the weather is beautiful today. It's 3:40 in the afternoon and the sky is just perfect. I'm going to take my tea outside and finish off my reading. Hope everybody's enjoying this lovely bout of weather as much as I am.

Shall update later. Am off to enjoy nature!

Is it possible to sleep forever?

They really need to invent a mood theme that fluctuates between upset-crappy-cynical. I'm trying to decide whether I'm feeling more upset, crappy or cynical, and I think cynical is currently in the lead. I'm going to go get some sleep. I feel like I've been awake for an age and I'm feeling really fucking miserable.

EDIT:
Sorry. Read over it and realised it sounded a little accusatory. This isn't directed at anybody. I'm just frustrated and miserable and venting.

Dylan Moran-- goddamnit, man!

Collapse )

*cries* Tickets are all sold out. I desperately want to go, but I'll be so fucking miserable if I were to turn up and nobody's scalping their tickets... God damnit!

EDIT:

I found tickets on eBay. What do I do?! God, I really desperately want to go! *bites lip* Argh... I'll ask Onizuneko how desperately he wants to go and maybe we'll bid, depending on how high the bidding gets. God damnit! *dies* I'll have to keep checking back... Hopefully, there will be more ticket sales put up closer to the date. God, I must go! He'll probably be back again next year... but... GAH!

EDIT 2.0:

Sigh. Just kill me now. (This has no relevance to my unlikelihood of seeing Dylan Moran live).

Turn a little faster...


First batch ♥

I woke up at about twelve today (I know, half the day wasted...) and made my way down to Woolies to pick up some groceries.
[info]lackofmendacity was stopping by today during her break, so I also grabbed some chocolate and strawberries. God, they're so much more complicated than you think. You'd think it was just melt-the-chocolate-dip-the-berry and voila, but it's actually really fiddly. You have to warm the strawberries to room temperature, you have to pat them dry every now and then so no water gets into the chocolate, the double boiler has to be at a constant temperature... Then there's the twirl... Argh. It was a little annoying at first, but after you get the hang of it, it's not too bad. Unfortunately, I used milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. I'm not sure if they were good or not. They taste like any other chocolate/fruit combination to me. Still, I hope she liked them.


Second batch

So... Aside from that... Yeah. Voldemort had sex with a fat Aussie chick on a plane. What's new?

    "Expecting" - The White Stripes

Chinese, lesbian, enjoys photography, loves food... But taken.

I can't stop laughing. I spent the last thirty minutes on this marvelous blog; www.thefoodpornographer.com. Basically, it's the photo blog of this lovely Chinese lesbian chick that lives in Perth. It was actually really funny and cute, because I was reading all the posts and wondering what was up with this 'Jac' person-- all the while assuming that the blogger was straight. She kept mentioning her... It was all, "Oh, I woke up this morning and Jac was craving [insert food]! She [so on and so forth]!" I guess I was pretty clued up, so I took a look at her FAQ section.
Who is this Jac you keep mentioning?
Jac is my partner of almost 10 years. She is not into computers or the internet at all, and has decreed that no image of her is to made available to the internet public. She is a wonderful cook and keeps me well fed. Most of the home cooked meals posted here have been created by Jac.

Are you male or female?
Female.

Is Jac female?
Um, yep!

Is Jac chinese too?
No, she’s a ‘whitey’. 

Ahahahaha. Sorry, I know it shouldn't be funny... But... I was totally not expecting that. It's so refreshing to see a culinary blog run by a Australian Born Chinese who happens to be shacked up with another chick. I love this woman.

Call me crazy, but I find it so strange (in a fabulous way) that her family hasn't disinherited her. You read her post from Tuesday and she talks about eating out with her family and her girlfriend. I don't know... If I came out of the closet to my parents and told them I was going to shack up with my girlfriend of ten years, they'd probably have epileptic fits before erasing me from the family tree-- let alone all go out for dinner together. *snickers at the thought of dinner conversation*

Well, if you're bored and have nothing to do, take a look at her blog! It's incredibly funny, the photos are lovely, the recipes are inspiring and she's really down to earth. *smirk* If anything, you'll start watering at the mouth.

By the way, I've finished my Major Work draft now... So I'm feeling happy. *hugs*

I Taste a Liquor (lol)

I taste a liquor never brewed
From Tankards scooped in Pearl.
Not all the vats upon the Rhine
Yield such an alcohol!

Inebriate of air - am I
And Debauchee of Dew.
Reeling - thro endless summer days
From inns of molten blue.

When "Landlords" turn the drunken bee
Out of the foxglove's door -
When butterflies - renounce their "drams"
I shall but drink the more!

Till seraphs swing their snowy hats
And saints - to windows run
To see the little Tippler
Leaning against the - sun

- Emily Dickinson

CAPTION THE SLASH/CRACK POTENTIAL PHOTO!

Bunch of HP-centric photos beneath the cut, marked 1, 2, 3, etc. Fill out the caption with the corresponding title (it'll make more sense when you look under the cut) and post it as comment! Brownie points for slash and funny... BUT MOSTLY CRACK! 

Procrastination is wheeeee!

Fuck Forever.

I had a really shit day. I try not to use expletives unnessecarily, (try being the operative word), but today was just a crock of bull. I woke up feeling nauseous, missed out on oggling a well-paid QC all day and have nothing to show for it. Fuck. I did manage to write up a one shot though. Fun. Needs beta-ing though. Might post it later and hope F-list beta for me.

And fuck forever, fuck 4U English. Pete Doherty is still mad about Carl Barat. Harry Potter is going to die on July 21st after shagging every Slytherin that ever was. So what's new? The world still goes on.

Life sucks. Why?
