1. I want to have Emma Thompson's future children.

2. While fan!girling over Emma Thompson on Ellen, do not, under any circumstances, turn off your computer. It could be installing updates. And that makes little Macs go to heaven. And that makes little Chippers have to drive to the Apple store to get a new hard drive.

3. Apple Care is my savior. The hard drive was free.

4. My Oceanography professor is simultaneously not the fastest fish in the sea and has all the personality of piece of Kraft American cheese. Why did I race back from the mall to catch this class? Oh, for the attendance points, that's it.

1) Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.

2) Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.

3) Include these instructions, and share the love.

It was just chillin' on my leg eating some granola bar, so I decided to take a picture of it.

Saw this on [livejournal.com profile] deelaundry's. Was intrigued, but not at all surprised by the result.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.

People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.

First off, it's amazing what a little procrastination will do. In the past two weeks, I was able to go back to San Antonio for a weekend, read all of [livejournal.com profile] cuddys_house, put together a tentative class schedule for next semester, finish my Italian homework in record time, and watch and fully participate in the discussion of "Birthmarks." Oh, and I took four midterm exams.

I should sleep now. )

Second, my dorm room has been freezing cold since I moved in this past August. This morning, I woke up to weather outside that was in the 60s. For South Texans, this is chilly weather. For people like me who lived in Illinois for twelve years, this is perfect fodder for mocking. Or it would be if I'd dressed properly for the weather and wasn't shivering on my way to my 8 am class. Anyway, back to my point -- THE UNIVERSITY STILL HAS NOT TURNED OFF THE DAMN A/C. I'M COLD. NOTHING I CAN DO. BRRR.

And now for a political break... )

Like this is even really a question. I love House/Cuddy with all my heart. They are, to me, the modern day Benedick and Beatrice (and deep, deep down, I believe that Emma Thompson agrees). I've even written an essay about them (thanks E! Online).

I'm also really, really coming to love House/Wilson. If there was any doubt, last night's episode proved just how important they are to each other. And I love that even though their relationship has evolved into one where Wilson bails House out all the time, it started with House bailing out Wilson. That's just awesome.

Do you know how hard it is to study whilst squeeing?

Damn hard is what it is.

TPTB were so nice to me last week in giving me a reprieve two days before my three-exam marathon. And now, a day before what will probably be my hardest exam, Oceanography, they had to give us Birthmarks. Just had to.

I'm not really complaining. That much.

I have three midterm exams on Thursday in English as a World Language, Italian, and Reformation History. So what do I do? LJ, HHoW, Facebook, and YouTube. :headdesk: Now, obviously TPTB over at House heard my silent prayers at the beginning of the semester and decided not to show a new episode this week, but why did the episode postponed have to be the one I've been looking forward to since May???

I also think I'm on my way to getting sick. I have this on-and-off sore throat coupled fatigue. I know I'm going to be sick by the time these exams are over. Thank God I'm going home this weekend. Of course, I'm going home knowing that next Wednesday I'll have another exam in Oceanography. WTF made me take Oceanography in the first place? I could have taken Chemistry for non-majors and not have had a lab.

Is it Christmas vacation yet?

The Rules: Post info about ONE US Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.)

Thank God for www.oyez.org

League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry: This was the case of the big Texas redistricting scandal.

Here was the conclusion: The Supreme Court held that the Texas Legislature's redistricting plan did not violate the Constitution, but that part of the plan violated the Voting Rights Act. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for a majority of the justices, stated that District 23 had been redrawn in such a way as to deny Latino voters as a group the opportunity to elect a candidate of their choosing, thereby violating the Voting Rights Act. Justice Kennedy also wrote, however, that nothing in the Constitution prevented the state from redrawing its electoral boundaries as many times as it wanted, so long as it did so at least once every ten years.

(I happen to live in District 23 -- it's huge)

So MyHeritage.com has this "Celebrity Look-alike" function. I'm quite impressed with myself right now.

I knew I liked Shirley Temple for a reason... )

Title: No Reason
Pairing: House/Cuddy
Word Count: 100 words, and thus a bona fide drabble
Summary: Cuddy wasn't really that shocked to find him there. She just wanted to know why. Takes place after "Dying Changes Everything"
A/N: written for [livejournal.com profile] travlncarrie's [livejournal.com profile] house_of_fanfic.

“House, what are you doing here?”

“I think it’s pretty obvious – eating your food, erasing your Tivo.”

“But why?”

“Because no woman over the age of forty should be watching The Hills.”

“Not the Tivo. Why are you here?”

“Why do you need to know?”

“Because you’re in my home.”


“And you don’t live in my home.”

“So why haven’t you kicked me out?”

“Because – “

“Because in reality you want me here eating and erasing. Because
you’re just as lonely as I am. Because… what are you doing?”

“Sitting. Pass the Cheetos. We're watching The Hills.”

... dammit.

Maybe next year, Hugh love.
I admit it, I'm a good ol'-fashioned fan of NSYNC. Went to two of their concerts in fact.

I'm also a fan of NBA basketball. Go Spurs Go.

But this... this is wrong.
