Okay, so I'm planning to do this project ( http://www.designsponge.com/2010/01/diy-project-hidden-jewelry-box.html ) and the plan is to use an art print as the photo. My room is blue and green, and the only other art I have up is a canvas reproduction of Van Gough's Almond blossoms


I'm having some trouble deciding on a piece, so I figured I'd ask for opinions. Pick one of the following or suggest something else. I'm totally open to not art deco, but as it's for a jewelry box I'd prefer for the picture to be female or beauty themed.

Top choices:

Okay, rather than ambush a beta I figured I'd ask if anyone wanted to beta a thousand or so words of Teen Wolf angst. Yeah, I'm as surprised as you. Writing, me? What even is this?

Hell has obviously frozen over.

So sometimes it’s a problem that I am first and foremost a geek and that my primary defense/coping mechanism is humor. The trouble is that when things like the shooting at the Batman premiere happens I have no ‘appropriate’ responses. Everything I have to say sounds callous or shallow out loud.

I think it’s terrible that this event might ruin Batman for people. I think it’s tragic that the people who died never even got to see the movie.

That sounds terrible, their loss is so much bigger than a movie, but you have to understand that the darkest points of my life have been measured in movies. I remember seeing Fellowship of the Rings and thinking “I can’t kill myself until I’ve seen the whole trilogy.” So yes, it’s an inane, but being a geek and having the ability to see the stories I love up on the big screen has saved my life - and the thought that someone could walk in and take that away from anyone is just horrific

I am personally pro-life and politically pro-choice. I don't think abortion ever a happy choice, but it is a necessary one to have.

Saying that feels like a complete betrayal of everything I was raised to believe - but its roots are in my upbringing. You see, at eleven my mother told me how she and my father got married.

Cut for backstory )

Because this says articulately pretty much everything I've been thinking for the last week or so. Also, BOO YAH for the shareaholic app for firefox. I might actually post more often now.

I think there's this bandwagon of "blame the founder!" that people have jumped on, and I can't in good conscience join it because my experience with the whole thing is so wildly divergent. I'll be voting for Naomi Novik in the OTW elections this week, and...well. I think the one thing we can probably all agree on is that the OTW appears to be at a crossroads moment. As it's an organization that's near and dear to my heart, I want to tell you why Naomi's going to get my vote. Your mileage, as always, may vary.

I have been a *moderately* good girl this year... )

Note to self: Next year request Wonderfalls, the proposed Season 2 storyline. Also, nominate Perry More's Hero

So according to my textbook for History of Rock & Roll the song Tutti-Frutti's original lyrics went like this:

Tutti Frutti, good booty
If it don't fit, don't force it
You can grease it, make it easy.


*blinks*

You know, I can't imagine why they made him change those lyrics in 1955.

Owww...

Bruised, battered, and broken, but alive - if sans one car. Update when I'm not falling asleep, but for now send healing thoughts to my poor broken foot - and patient/understanding thoughts to my professors.

"I'm the Doctor, I'm worse than everybody's aunt."

QUERY for Dr Who/Discworld fans: Which is more terrifying to the innocent bystander - the Doctor or Mrs. Cake?

Other theories:

Perhaps Mrs Cake is a timelord attempting to keep busy during retirement?

Tripped *getting into the CAR* and got half a cup of coffee EVERYWHERE. Got coffee IN MY EYES. Now I have to wash my clothes, clean the front 2 seats, and mourn the loss of a fresh cup of coffee. Note to self: lids are a good thing.

Also:


I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




I got Dan Brown when I tried a journal entry, and promptly went "OH THIS IS NOT ON", so I tried fics of various vintage and uniformly was told I wrote like Stephen King. Apparently I'm doomed to be more pulp fiction than classic.

And finally:

Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails fame) and his wife have a new project, How To Destroy Angels. Their first album is up for free download, and it's pretty stinking good. Get it here: http://www.howtodestroyangels.com/

So, I have 5 short papers, 1 medium paper, and 2 15+ page papers due... tomorrow. I'm thinking at least half of that will end up being late.

Note to self: perfectionist + procrastinator = totally screwed.

If I owe you something, I apologize, but it's going to be a bit late. Believe it or not, I've been working my butt off for the past 2 weeks, things are just not getting *finished*.

God, this is me. If you're planning to end the world any time soon, now works for me.

I'm going on a trip, so I'll be off radar more than usual for a bit. Try not to be too productive while I'm gone f'list? I'd like no more than a moderate amount of catching up when I get back.

Also, thanks for all the suggestions on my last post. It's grounding to get an outside opinion on the matter. *crosses fingers* Here's hoping I can handle it well.

I kind of want to create a break-up card. Some kind of ridiculous graphic to express the following:

People who are not my lovers:

Billie Jean
Lex Luthor
You

and possibly the inside should contain the text "this has got to be classier than a break-up post-it/voice mail, right?"

I feel this would be the kind of card that requires accompanying silly fic. But mostly, I want that cover graphic.

Can't do the color meme without the Much Ado About Nothing quote. Anyhow, color meme from [personal profile] splix.

Rules: Comment, and I'll give you a color. And then you post ten things that color that you like.

My color?

So, after many years of not really, I'm kind of writing again. Weird, I know.

Anyhow, have a snippet of Frank/Girl!Gerard.

The good: Thanks to anonymous for the LJ gift certificate. Totally awesome of you.

The bad: So, trying to write a 15 page historiography paper tonight. Every time I think I have an inkling of how to write it the entire concept just slips through my fingers. It's making me absolutely crazy.

The totally nifty: When I have money again I'm totally getting this

Natalie Merchant sings 19th century poetry. How cool is that?
