revolutions: A white kitten with its mouth wide open as if laughing. (lolkitten)
1. I am doing the happy dance of nerd joy because my essay on Juvenal's satires got 82%. :D

2. Is it bad that I almost kind of want to write Cope/Marsh fanfic? Seriously, I was reading about palaeontology history and things today, and clearly they were just full of the FoeYay.

3. I am really really amused by this Kate Beaton comic. Also, the person in the comments who described the Young Victoria movie as "a two-hour elaboration of Victoria's boner for Albert".

4. Hey, maybe I could bribe Kate Beaton to draw the Cope/Marsh slash. Uhm, yeah. XD

[Edit: oops, forgot to include a description of the comic. Added one in the comments, since it is kind of long.]

1. Remember how I said I had a "pretty unthreatening" bug of some sort? It mutated into full-on flu so violent that my mother has spent the last few days fretting about H1N1. However, I am now able to perform complicated tasks like getting up and drinking a cup of tea, so presumably I'm on the mend.

2. This is one of the best flash-game style things I've ever found via StumbleUpon. It's very very pretty, and fun in a logic-puzzle sort of way too. And once you get into the later levels, it's almost as much fun just to play around with the patterns of light and music as it is to try to solve it. If I ever have any money again, I might even buy the full version.

(... I keep finding myself thinking about Braid when I play it. I don't know why. It is absolutely nothing like Braid. It isn't a platform game, it doesn't have a weird twisty storyline - or any storyline - and it is not even remotely the same genre. It's not even comparing apples to oranges, it's like comparing apples to... fish and chips, or something. The only connection I can make is the pretty classical-esque music, and the fact that on some levels it seems to require similar sort of lateral thinking, in a way.)

3. As long as I'm talking about Braid: it's good! Play it!

4. I wonder if trying to eat breakfast would be too ambitious...? I feel sick, but dammit I am so hungry.
revolutions: A row of pretty paper journals. (notebooks)
1. Look how pretty my layout is! [personal profile] boo wins at journal design, clearly. (I really need to start figuring out this whole Core2 thing. It'd be nice to be able to make my own layouts, or even tweak them a little.)

2. So I'm, like, moderating a community with actual members, and posting in it, and running a contest and everything. I think Dreamwidth has turned me into an internet extrovert. Also, the phrase "turned me into an internet extrovert" is probably really difficult to say.

3. I'm going to Stratford-upon-Avon for my birthday (thirtieth) (next month) and seeing TWO performances by the Royal Shakespeare Company. This fills me with so much lit-geek joy, I can't tell you. (As You Like It and The Winter's Tale, in case anybody wondered.)

4. I spent nearly all of today sleeping. I shouldn't have, with papers due by Friday morning and all, but I couldn't seem to wake myself up. Stupid CFIDS. At least it makes a change from not being able to sleep?...

5. And at least I've managed to start the essay on the Romans?... No, I'm about halfway through it now, actually. Going to work at it for another hour and then crawl into my bed.

1. I love how friendly Dreamwidth is so far. I only got my invite code two weeks ago, and I have a subscription list full of more than forty interesting and awesome people. :) Love this place.

2. I keep thinking it's Sunday. You know when you just sort of get mentally stuck one day ahead or behind of actual time? That. I think it's because not doing the Lindow Man exhibition on Friday threw me off somehow.

3. ... I'm really going to miss Lindow Man. I was strangely attached to him, in an odd way. Stupid British Museum wanting him back.

4. I'm staying at my parents' house for the night and they took me out for dinner. Delicious free Chinese food get!

5. Are there really only three cases in Phoenix Wright: Justice for All? I'm on the last one already! I'm guessing it's going to be a huge complicated one, though, since the final ones generally seem to be.

6. For people reading this on LJ or Inksome, I still have one DW code to give out! Let me know if you want it, otherwise I'll hand it out on the codesharing comm.
revolutions: A girl in a swimsuit sitting on a rock at the beach. (seawater and rocks)
1. I have Variable Flow up and running as my layout now. :) This makes Dreamwidth feel like home.

2. Four people joined my community already? (Okay, three, not including me.) But still! Win!

3. There's a cat on my lap and she keeps trying to bite me in an affectionate, but still somewhat painful, sort of way.

4. I went to Blackpool yesterday for the afternoon with my housemates, and, while it was a completely awesome day full of rollercoasters and sand and sunshine and pink champagne, it also left me completely exhausted and I've spent the whole day today just wishing I could go back to sleep. This was entirely predictable, and was a price worth paying for such a nice day out, so I don't mind that too much. What I do mind is that now it is sleeping time, my body has decided that sleep is the LAST thing it wants to do. What the hell, body.

5. This is especially annoying because I am on dinosaur-handling-table duty at the museum tomorrow, and I really don't want to end up being too exhausted to get there. I've already had to miss the last two dinosaur-table shifts due to exams etc., and I really like doing them. I get to talk to wildly enthusiastic children about prehistoric creatures and show them the fossils and listen to them squee about the T-rex skeleton and things. It's fun.

6. For those of you who are new to my journal (hi! *waves*), I should probably tell you that I tend to make list-esque entries like this quite a lot.

7. I'm sort of craving peppermint tea, even though it's one o'clock in the morning. Maybe I will go make some.

I'm not cross-posting this, because it's Dreamwidth-specific stuff.

1. I made a community! Probably a very low traffic one, but I felt Dreamwidth needed a Danielewski community, therefore: [community profile] navidsonrecord.

2. I love that the maximum username length has been extended to... is it twenty-five characters, I think? This opens up so many possibilities for community and user names. (I did consider going with [profile] wehauefoundftaires for the above, but...)

3. I have no idea yet what my "circle policy" is going to be. I've subscribed to a whole load of people who look interesting, but haven't put anyone on my "access list" except friends I've known for quite a while via other sites. I suppose since I don't plan to make a lot of locked posts at all, it doesn't make a huge difference; I might very well just stick everyone onto my "access list", so I can occasionally lock posts down that contain personal information but people can still read them. Or perhaps I'll just wait until the "hm, do I want to lock this?" issue actually arises. I don't know. This is a whole new interesting social-networking dilemma, hm. :) What are other people doing about this?
