she told me to sit in a corner and think about what i've done.

you know what i think? )

in other news, i have about 6500 words of mafia AU sequel (sharpy/kaner/tazer)! it's not quite done. i thought i was going to finish it tonight while i watched the rangers/devils game, but i reached the level of distraction where somebody was going to wander away from a sex scene for a snack or develop an extra hand or two, so i quit for the night. i lead a VERY exciting life, especially when [livejournal.com profile] just_katarin is away. i'm probably going to be asleep again before midnight \o/

names are hard, my mom is the best )

my baby brother graduated from college!!! here's a picture: )

my parents were like YOU WERE BASICALLY A SUPERHERO THIS WEEKEND, because i did a really good job of pretending i wasn't in horrible miserable pain the whole time \o/ i still had to take a lot of nap breaks, but oh well. and when mom was finding her father's pocketwatch to give johnny, she found the necklace her mother promised me for MY graduation, so now i have a swishy fish necklace \o/

i'm working on a sequel to the mafia AU! i posted bits of it already, and i've been copypastaing more to imp in IM because i can't make people suck less in reality, but i can make patrick sharp be a doofus in fic!

a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you've ever wondered how to summarize casa de this land, here's another picture: )

i slept through the test i was supposed to take :| i feel bad because i should have realized sooner that this just wasn't going to happen, but i also feel like it's too late to feel super guilty. it happened, now we deal.

what are you up to, lj?
angelsaves: (teemu)
are any of you (or people you know) particular fans of shane o'brien? i REALLY wanted the kevin "killer" kaminski bobblehead, and he came with a friend i guess. if you want him, let me know and we'll figure out how to get him to you!

i did way too much today BUT tomorrow i'm starting tranexamic acid, so someday i will be a functioning human again! chloe's enjoying the basically-bedridden version of me, though (shocking, i know), since she gets ALL of the petting. i'm just hoping i'll be in better shape by the weekend, because my baby brother is graduating from college, oh my goodness. maybe i'll re-dye my hair, so if i'm an exhausted shell of myself, i'll at least be an exhausted shell of myself with freshly hot pink hair?

jinxology with mom )

ugh i have to lie down and feel sorry for myself now. later, bros

hello livejournal, i am suddenly obsessed with wolves and jackals and coyotes and figuring out what canid species/subspecies people would be if they were werewolves.

i'm posting this here so i can stop annoying imp and my mom with all my pictures )
angelsaves: (Default)
well that game was sad to watch :( i srsly almost teared up when claude giroux came down from the press box for the handshake line. that was well done, sir. i probably would have thrown a tantrum and then tried to sneak out to the parking lot before anybody could talk to me, in your shoes.

sometimes i read super old issues of the journal of american folklore for fun )

idk, man. i've been in a very weird and energy-less mood the past couple of days, because tmi ahoy ), so i've been doing brainless things like coloring pages from the d&d coloring book and finishing my ancestor shrine and such. (i guess that doesn't SOUND brainless, but all that was left was arranging the pictures and then putting it on top of the shelf where it goes without everything falling out!)

maybe tomorrow i'll have the energy/brain cells/wrist function to write more?? that would be good. i have IDEAS.
angelsaves: (kaner haaay)
i got my last rejection letter yesterday. i also sent in my application to a master of arts in teaching program, so those kind of balance out, i guess?

have i mentioned i'm doing a CHALLENGE? you should sign up for it. i'll give you three random songs for inspiration, and then you can write stuff more or less based on it, and it'll be great! there's no deadline, unless you need a deadline, in which case you have exactly one week.

also the predators won! and the rangers and capitals went to a THIRD overtime, oh my goodness, that is a lot of hockey right there. ryan mcdonough had approximately three weeks on ice; stu bickell had less than four minutes. ouch.

in which my mother and i discuss the kings, adorability thereof )

talk to me, lj, i'm bored and lonely :(

killing two birds with one stone: when bobbi first meets getzy/bobbi in her rookie year for [livejournal.com profile] go_gentle/[livejournal.com profile] diora1 (after this, she scores a natural hat trick \o/)

[EDIT: OH ALSO HERE'S A TAYLOR SWIFT/SWEET PEA FROM SUCKER PUNCH FIC I WROTE http://archiveofourown.org/works/393064 it's ridiculous and idc]

so i was thinking about this during my commute and actually remembered it once i got out of the car: if i did a challenge where you got 3 songs and had to write a fic inspired by one or more of them, would you be interested? it'd probably be, like, ≤1000 words or so. THOUGHTS?

[livejournal.com profile] just_katarin has been making coconut margaritas. how i explained them to my mom: )

my left eyelid has been twitching for like a week, MAKE IT STOP

YEAAAAH BRANDON YIP!!! GO PREDS!!! my favorite part of the playoffs might be bandwagoning different teams really enthusiastically. i totally love the predators because i sang in their arena once, and also because their radio station is A+++. i listened to it when i was driving back from my brother's recital, and there was a commercial from nissan being like "so we have a lot of employees who are predators fans! officially, we do not sanction throwing anything on the ice, since that's against the rules. unofficially, we recommend lemon juice for geting the smell of fish off your hands :D"

speaking of my brother's recital, this is the song i wanted them to dress up as mike richards and jeff carter for: "au fond du temple saint," from les pêcheurs de perles, performed by my baby brother (the bass) and his friend phil (the tenor). yes, the lyrics ARE basically "it's guy love between two guys." occasionally, during the actual recital, i would close my eyes and imagine they had taken our advice and worn purple hockey jerseys and blacked out a tooth, and it was glorious. GLORIOUS.
angelsaves: (carbomb)
oh hey i've written enough stories for this to be a legit thing for me to do!
Give me one of my stories and a timestamp sometime in the future (after the end of the story), or sometime in the past (before the story started), and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

i'm seeing my family this weekend, so have some mom-versations: )

I'M REALLY EXCITED FOR PLAYOFFS!!! oh gosh. this picture is my entire life now. (and this time i didn't get confused about whether i was a hrefing or img srcing halfway through, go me!) I JUST WANT ALL OF THE HOCKEY. AND ALL OF THE FIGHTS. AND POSSIBLY A MARGARITA. i need to put a pillow over my head now
angelsaves: (Default)
conversations with my mother, part crystal-blue persuasion )

i won a bobblehead for my serious face!!! srsly srs ) somebody asked if that was a dead body behind me, and i said it was a Serious Afghan... that may or may not be wrapped around the body of daniel sedin >:|

someday i'll be a person.

i had a Day

Mar. 2nd, 2012 08:52 pm
angelsaves: (boom)
so yesterday i had a vicious hell-migraine that refused to go away. i woke up pretty chipper this morning, though! and then i had to go to work, where i helped one of my students write a paper (??? how does this keep happening to me? i'm a SCIENCE TUTOR) and maybe wrote non-school-like things where she couldn't see, and then after THAT it was time to drive to greencastle, indiana to see my family for the weekend! my brother's in an opera.

there was one little problem with the driving through indiana. cut for diagrams )

i don't think i was ever in actual DANGER -- i didn't see any real funnel clouds, just places where the dark greenish clouds got suspiciously pointy -- but if i had been, i don't know what i would have done besides try to drive into a ditch in a controlled manner. as it was, it was fucking exhausting, so i was really glad that i was late enough that my parents were like "how about we leave a key for you at the hotel and you just drive right there?"

so now i am flopped on the bed, having listened to the wgn radio feed of the BLACKHAWKS WINNING!!! there are birthday presents for me on the desk. o____o

how are you, flist?
angelsaves: (Default)
apparently i can't comment. at all. not on my posts, not on anybody's posts. the "post comment" button stays grayed out and doesn't do anything.

also, mr. daley died. :/
angelsaves: (hockey puck)
i'm thankful for all of you, and my family, and delicious food, and pens that don't leak, and red bull, and medication, and tv shows i wasn't expecting to like (i didn't think i'd ever want to watch walking dead, and then i found myself bouncing up and down gleefully and yelling at the characters while i stuffed myself with cranberries. okay!), and cats, and comfy skirts, and HOCKEY

speaking of hockey, i wrote a story where duncs and seabs do sex magic to fix the blackhawks!
"bet that i can make you believe", at ao3. nobody betaed it, but [livejournal.com profile] way2busymom is a great cheerleader! *\o/*
angelsaves: (pug)
i spent most of last week back east. my mom actually GOT TIME OFF (no seriously this hasn't happened in years) so we sat on the couch and watched harry potter and days of our lives and gossiped \o/ also i went to a rangers game and then a hawks game with [livejournal.com profile] go_gentle when i got back! and i'm trying to avoid thinking so

can't resist a meme )
angelsaves: (kaner haaay)
HAVE YOU WATCHED THIS VID YET??? IF YOU HAVEN'T, GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW:

mark doesn't understand animals updated! imp's response: "just don't eat kaner, mark."

here is the lineup for my fantasy hockey team, "john scott's flipper" (named for the time i dreamed that i discovered john scott was secretly a dolphin and desperately needed to alert the internet to this deception, and somehow managed to wake up exactly enough to tweet about it in real life). i made a list of players with the weirdest/best names. just look at how beautiful these names are:
center: ryan getzlaf, david krejci, mika zibanejad, travis zajac
right wing: jarome iginla, dustin byfuglien, teemu selanne, cal clutterbuck
left wing: michael cammalleri, james van riemsdyk, kris versteeg, gabriel landeskog
defense: kevin shattenkirk, sergei gonchar, joni pitkanen, marek zidlicky, grant clitsome
goalie: pekka rinne, michal neuvirth

conversation with my mom )

look at these journals made out of little golden books oh my goodness. i remember reading so many of these books. i loved the color kittens, but i was deeply weirded out by mister dog (he wears clothes and sits in a chair, that is not how dogs work, what the hell do his bones look like? D: )

update, proof that my mom is the best mom:
abby: have you heard much about occupy wall street?
mom: yes i wanted to go
angelsaves: (laser cat)
chloe had a mass removed from her leg and a couple of teeth taken out (including the one she broke biting my laptop a few years ago).
