ONE OF MY YULETIDE NOMS GOT [SORT OF?] REJECTED! I assume it was a mistake, though - [personal profile] traincat, I saw that you nommed Spider-Man (Ultimateverse), did yours get approved?

What I nominated:

Spider-Man (Ultimateverse): Katie Bishop, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson (Ultimateverse)

What they approved:

Marvel Ultimates: Kate Bishop (Ultimates)

What they rejected:

Marvel Ultimates: Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson (Ultimateverse)

DOES THAT MAKE NEGATIVE SENSE TO ANYBODY ELSE? It would maybe make sense to me if "Spider-Man (Ultimateverse)" weren't an existing AO3 tag, and they just wrangled it weirdly, but...it is. It would also make some sense to me if "Kate Bishop (Ultimates)" were an existing tag, but...it's not. ANYWAY I assume this will be an easy fix once the tag set opens because UCSM is an established AO3 fandom that was in Yuletide last year and doesn't meet ANY of the ineligibility standards.

0. IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME, I haven't been around as much! However much someone can NOT BE AROUND while still tweeting a hundred times a day, whatever. Full sentences are hard.

1. SCHOOL STARTED. I'm...an idiot, basically, and someone missed the first meetings of two of my three classes? THE THIRD CLASS IS ONLINE. IT'S NOT AN ACHIEVEMENT THAT I DIDN'T MISS IT BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING TO MISS. GOOD WORK, SELF. For some reason I thought my Public Speaking class met on Thursdays, not Tuesdays, and I didn't realize my mistake until Wednesday night. NO PROBLEM, THOUGH, bc I just switched into a section that ACTUALLY met on Thursdays and pretended like nothing ever happened. And I like my section! So that's good!

I have no idea how I missed my first Bio/Anatomy&Physiology session, though. All week I was like "A&P, 9AM Saturday for FIVE GODDAMN HOURS!" and then at some point between leaving work on Friday and like...10:30 on Saturday morning it just COMPLETELY LEFT MY MIND. I saw Fall Out Boy/Panic at the Disco on Friday night SO I GUESS IT WAS THAT? Because I woke up at like 7:30 on Saturday morning all "BACK TO SLEEP, NOWHERE TO BE" and then I woke up again three hours later all "aaaaaaaand I was supposed to be in class an hour and a half ago."

THIS HAS HAD FAR-REACHING EFFECTS, most notably in the registration clusterfuck that occurred when my professor dropped me from the class AFTER I had a "hey, I'm so sorry I missed last week, do you need me to do anything to make it up?" conversation with her where she told me I was fine. THAT IS A FUCKING NIGHTMARE. I say "is" because after fixing things on Saturday and getting re-added to the class, I AM SOMEHOW, ONCE AGAIN, NOT REGISTERED FOR A&P. OKAY. AWESOME. PERFECT. FUCK EVERYTHING. FUCK COMMUNITY COLLEGE. FUCK EVERYONE. [It's supposedly fixed again! But the only reason I even checked on it today was to see if my accounts had settled, because depending on what you check, I either owe the school $700, am owed a $250 refund, and/or have a $400 book advance on my account. NONE OF THOSE THINGS SHOULD BE TRUE. GOD KNOWS HOW THIS WILL SHAKE OUT.]

2. Anyway apart from A&P being a neverending registration clusterfuck, I ALSO think the people I share a lab table with have written me off as a mess? LBR, I'm not at my best at 9AM, and I missed the first week, so the second week I didn't have the homework and had to sit there silently while we went over it in groups, and then there was a MINOR COFFEE SPILLING INCIDENT, and long story short for Week 3 I PUT A LOT OF EFFORT into being more together and having all the work done and the bitches at my lab table still TOTALLY SHUNNED ME so now I'm insane over it. DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM? Anyway, I was never not going to have the best grade in the class, but now I am aggressively pursuing a perfect grade so I can shove it in everyone's faces, I am the one who knocks, etc etc.

3. BREAKING BAD! BREAKING BAD! BREAKING BAD! I'm not getting too much into last night's episode because I'm trying to turn my brain off as the finale approaches [GET YOUR THINK PIECES OUT OF MY FACE], but I will say that ??? )

4. So I don't watch the Emmys, I just refresh Wikipedia every hour and then laugh and laugh and laugh, but last night's seems like it was probably a shittier-than-usual way to spend three hours! Jeff Daniels! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

5. ALL THE PILOTS is fully underway and (so far) running on schedule, although tonight - two and a half hours of pilots, plus Sleepy Hollow, and I'm not sure I'll be watching any of them live - should be a bit of a challenge. SO FAR, THOUGH:

ALL THE PILOTS 2013: Back in the Game (DON'T WATCH THIS SHOW)
ALL THE PILOTS: Sleepy Hollow (WATCH THIS SHOW)
ALL THE PILOTS: Dads / Brooklyn Nine-Nine (DON'T WATCH DADS, probably watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine, comedies are tricky, who can tell this early)

Hi guys what's up how are you I had a SURPRISE REVELATION like ten minutes ago that the reason I never feel like I have anything to update about is that I TWEET EXCESSIVELY AND GET IT ALL OUT OF MY SYSTEM THAT WAY, so I don't have that same I HAVE TO TELL THIS STORY, /UPDATE.BML TIME!!!!!!!!!!! drive like I used to. TODAY I HELPED MY SISTER MOVE INTO HER FRESHMAN DORM AND I FUMBLED HER TV WHILE SETTING IT UP AND FUCKED UP THE DISPLAY SO I HAD TO GO OUT AND BUY HER A NEW ONE, THAT WAS FUN. I mean whatever I could be super FML about it but WHATEVER, THESE THINGS HAPPEN, WHO CARES, WHY BOTHER BEING MAD AT MYSELF ABOUT IT. Also classes started and I fully just DID NOT GO to the first session of either of my in-person classes, not in an avoidant or lazy way but in a "OH, FUCK, THAT WAS YESTERDAY? kind of way. Good job, self. [WHAT IS UP WITH ME THIS WEEK, I DON'T EVEN KNOW. Get it together!]

I also feel like this was probably lost in the shuffle but it should be known that I ended up seeing Pacific Rim in theaters a total of eight times. #CHAMPION

Anyway who gives a FUCK about anything I just said I'm actually here to cry helplessly about Breaking Bad.

D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: that's me for an hour every sunday )
dudski: ([bb] whatever bitch)
BREAKING BAD IS BACK! EVERYTHING HURTS AND I'M DYING! )

IN OTHER NEWS I've been feeling shitty about pretty much EVERYTHING ABOUT MYSELF for the last week or so, which is always fun. The best way to handle this would probably be to DO A LOT OF THINGS and KEEP MYSELF BUSY, which is why it's very convenient that I just dropped a month's pay on my fall tuition bill and won't be able to afford to do anything ever again. HELPFUL!!!! Either way classes start up in three weeks and from then on it'll hopefully be ALL MOMENTUM ALL THE TIME and I won't be so focused on my own awfulness! FINGERS CROSSED!

WHAT'S UP, HOW IS EVERYONE? I haven't done a HERE'S WHAT I'M UP TO update in a lot longer than I thought! Here is one!

0. Friday was my teacher's memorial service. I don't have much to say about it, only that it was devastating, and that I'm incredibly grateful that Robyn was there and willing to steer me around afterwards while I cried all over her.

1. I did a lot of work at work yesterday and then none of it ended up mattering so today I've just refreshed Tumblr and screamed a lot about Pacific Rim. It's been good for me.

UM, like two weeks ago I had my ANNUAL REVIEW, which I was expecting in like March, but whatever. Bridgette had hers a few days before mine and ended up FULLY VENTING TO DEBBIE about what a soul-crushing nightmare this place is and how she dreads coming in every day, WHICH IS LOLMAZING, and I went into mine fully prepared to back her up if necessary because even tough normally I will just silently hate everyone for years, I HAVE BRIDGETTE'S BACK ALWAYS. (Well, usually. There was this thing one time. We're not here to talk about that.) But what ended up happening was that Debbie and Paula were like "LOOK, BILL IS TERRIBLE AND WE ALL HAVE TO COPE WITH IT. CAN YOU COPE WITH IT? WE MAY NOT PLAN ON EVER GIVING YOU BENEFITS, BUT REMEMBER LAST WEEK WE ORDERED A PIZZA?"

ETA the other thing that happened in my review was that they were like YOU'RE PERFECT DON'T EVER CHANGE, AND IF YOU CHANGED ANYTHING, WE'D WANT IT TO BE MAKING YOURSELF MORE COMFORTABLE ASKING FOR HELP WHEN YOU'RE SWAMPED. So I will continue to not do anything ever.

ADDITIONALLY there has been some giant fuckup at Bill's restaurant in which they hired a third-party to handle their takeout/delivery system, and this ended in NOBODY EVER ORDERING TAKEOUT OR DELIVERY AGAIN, and I was sent a giant clusterfuck of a 30,000-name spreadsheet of every takeout/delivery customer they had in the POS database, and I was supposed to turn it into a mailing list for "SORRY, COME BACK!" postcards. I've been going through that spreadsheet, in addition to doing all my other shit, for over a week. YESTERDAY I ASKED PAULA IF THE POSTCARDS WERE IN FROM THE PRINTER YET BC I WAS CONCERNED I WAS HOLDING UP THE PROCESS AND SHE WAS LIKE "LOL YEAH NO WE'RE NOT DOING THAT." COOL JOB!!!!!!!!!!

2. Kate's getting MARRIED next summer and I went with her/her mom/her aunt/her sister in law/her fiance's friend Megan to go WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING, which was hilarious, because in terms of how much thought I put into clothes, the only thing that separates me from the average dude is the part where I consider how my boobs look in something. "That's much more of a winter dress." -EVERYONE, UNANIMOUSLY AND INEXPLICABLY. Something something necklines, something something sashes, something something ivory vs white? I DON'T KNOW.

WHAT A DAY )

3. LAST THURSDAY I MET UP WITH [profile] hongkongaton TO SEE PACIFIC RIM AND IT WAS GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT AND THEN WE GOT BERTUCCI'S AFTER AND IT WAS ALSO GREAT.

4. Yesterday's Morning Glories blew my mind. PROBABLY GONNA GO TO BOSTON COMIC CON THIS WEEKEND JUST TO WALK UP TO JOE EISMA AND BE LIKE "I HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS. NUMBER ONE, HOW DARE YOU? NUMBER TWO, CAN YOU TELL ME EVERYTHING?"

5. ANYWAY NOW I HAVE TO GO SUE SOMEONE FOR BILL OR SOMETHING. I'M NOT SURE WHAT FOR. GOOD TIMES.

WARNING FOR OTHER PEOPLE'S FUCKING TERRIBLE PACIFIC RIM OPINIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

So this happened:

how is it that the characters who barely speak at all in this movie are ten thousand times more compelling than Chuck and Raleigh put together like geez guys

SHORT REACTION: AND THAT'S THE STORY OF HOW I UNFOLLOWED GINGERHAZE!

LONG VERSION:

idek what this post is, ANGRY SPEWING GARBAGE MAINLY )
dudski: ([yj] smoke always changes the subject)
SO HERE'S THE THING: Pacific Rim has all of the FUCK YEAH PERFECT EXECUTION OF A JOYFUL FUN SUMMER ACTION MOVIE excitement of Iron Man or STXI [all three of which were situations where AS I WAS WATCHING I could already see myself in the distant future relaxing on the couch and popping the DVD in for the billionth time], but on top of that it's also VERY MUCH about things that have dominated my focus for the last two years - NAMELY, FREAKISHLY COMPATIBLE PEOPLE AND/OR PEOPLE WITH MENTAL CONNECTIONS AND/OR PEOPLE WHO LITERALLY SHARE BRAIN SPACE. And all that was combined with an overarching theme of SAVING THE WORLD BY BEATING UP MONSTERS WITH THE SHEER FORCE OF YOUR LOVE, and on top of THAT the movie takes place in a world that I'm dying to see more of and to know more about, basically guaranteeing that I will never run out of ways to freak out about this gd movie and all the people in it.

IT'S THE COMPLETE PACKAGE. IT'S EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED. I'M NOT EVEN GONNA TRY TO TALK ABOUT IT COMPREHENSIVELY BECAUSE TO PRETEND LIKE I CAN EVEN BEGIN TO COVER IT ALL IS INSULTING TO ITS SIZE. What I'm saying is that if you don't care about Pacific Rim, I hope you know how to tag filter, because I'm just going to be screaming about it as the urge strikes me.

to fight monsters we created SOULMATES )
