GUESS WHO'S NOT MOVING TODAY?



Honestly, I do feel bad for everybody who's trying to negotiate Boston traffic, torrential rain, and a Red Sox home game, all while driving a U-Haul...but mostly I feel smug as actual fuck. Whatever, I'll get my comeuppance the next time we move, I'm sure.

HEY LIVEJOURNAL WHAT ARE THE HAPS? I am TWO DAYS OUT from beginning my second year as a full-time teacher; I am both more and less terrified than I was this time a year ago. Mostly less terrified, honestly, because, hey: I have done this before! I don't know everything I want to - I probably don't even know everything I need to - but I at least know how to post attendance and who to email about my keys! PLUS I am not developing three entire courses entirely from scratch, this year, so I have way more material to work from.

On the other hand, I'm developing a split-level junior/senior class entirely from scratch and with no textbook, so there's that. On the OTHER other hand, I don't have a study hall anymore, quite possibly because somebody in the administration looked at my schedule and said, "um, or maybe we could NOT make her cry?"

WHAT ELSE. I finally paid off my library fines, so I can get free books again! And of course I am trapped in a terrible Mercedes Lackey series - I thought it was a trilogy but it turns out it is a QUINTET, what the fuck, ML, why would you do that to me? But I also have other books I am reading, and I am trying to get into the swing of using my GoodReads account to track things / find things. You should add me!

UM, STUFF. I stopped watching Teen Woof over the summer, because busy, and now I am too dispirited by everything I've seen about it on tumblr to keep going. I'm enjoying the everloving fuck out of Welcome To Night Vale, which is creepy and delightful. I'm wicked excited for the new Toby Daye book, even though it comes out on the first day of school and I'll probably never have time to read it. I tripped and fell and watched a whole bunch of American Ninja Warrior last week, which is oddly soothing. Oh yeah and I BOUGHT NEW BRAS, omg, my boobs look amazeballs.

HELLO, INTERNET. o______________o COME OVER HERE AND TELL ME THINGS.

If any of you are ever in need of something adorable and hilarious, I highly recommend this playlist of various guest stars hanging out with Elmo. Zoe Saldana's 'transportation' clip is my personal favorite, but Amy Poehler is also great, as are the many many other fabulous people.

In other news: finished my student teaching, watched the Avengers twice in less than 24 hours, and spent the entire day hungover on the couch, reading fic and refreshing tumblr. My weekend: pretty excellent, thanks much!

(YES, LIZ, I HAD TO ASK GOOGLE HOW TO SPELL THAT. ILU2.)

I had an absolutely EXCELLENT day today, with lots of wine and noms and fangirls and due south! There was a lot of hilarity surrounding the notion of a sex-voice GPS function (to be voiced by one ms. [livejournal.com profile] shiningartifact, CLEARLY), and also a great deal of general delightfulness - and on the car ride home I inflicted the following on C, who said that clearly this was something that needed shared with the rest of the world.



I'm just saying, blame C, not me.

Dear Sinuses,

I really appreciate how you kept it together through that last week, even with the rain and the yelling and the general ridiculousness. That was great! Next year, I'd like to try and see if we can keep it together even AFTER camp is over - I know there were some extenuating circumstances this year, what with the many millions of hours in the airport, but, still. I would like to be able to use my nose right now! Still, on the whole, strong work, and I look forward to continuing our collaboration.

Best,

- M

Dear mothership,

All that, and you want to add a family week next year? I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Ask me again in a month or so.

Yours in fond bewilderment,

Dear transportation office,

Suck a dozen goddamn dicks. THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T FIRE COMPETENT PEOPLE, ASSHOLES.

No love,

- that angry lady from the woods

Dear self of a few months ago,

I was really annoyed at you for forgetting to bring the tea I like up to camp, but now I realize that it was all a sneaky plot to make sure that there would be tea here when I got back! So, you know. Rock on?

- Current self

Dear self of right now,

You are no longer the second-highest authority over twenty staff. You cannot delegate. Pack your goddamn clothes up.

- Self

Dear Internet,

HAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

really, right now, more than anything else? i want to make pie for Cobra Starship. Or, well, flan, actually. CHEESE FLAN. Delicious, delicious cheese flan. For Cobra Starship.

&lots of other people, of course. BASICALLY I WANT TO QUIT LIFE AND JUST FEED PEOPLE A LOT*, OKAY.

...this is reasonable, right? RIGHT?

sadly, flan is hard to mail. *tragicface* otherwise? I would tell you to WATCH YOUR MAILBOXES.




*which, yes, is rather ridiculous, all things (read: my continued failure to consistently feed MYSELF) considered. TRUST ME I KNOW.
