[livejournal.com profile] colubra nearly killed me with this today, and so I must share: If TS Eliot was written by LOLcats.

I swear to God, I have not laughed so hard since the "Everybody Looks Like Max Today" incident of aught-05.

ETA: Bad decisions in marketing history.
WHY IS THERE A COBRA AND A SCORPION ON IT? ARE THEY THE NATURAL ENEMIES OF THE REINDEER? IN SWEDEN?! Augh. I think I sprained my Earth Logic...
psychick: (First Seven Days)
As I apparently communicate events better in lists, a list!

1) New apartment is new! Old apartment is old. After some dissent, Mom has cleared up the What Color Are The Walls Really debate by dubbing them French Vanilla.

2) Free Ikea bus is free! ...and filled with everyone who lives in NYC evar. Dear Lord that store was a zoo. We didn't actually buy a thing at Ikea, but we came up with a Cunning Plan re: the things that will eventually be in my living room. With all-new furniture and all this lovely art that we've been stashing away at the ancestral home, including a black laquer folding screen, a bunch of woodblock prints, and a Miro, I am going to have some posh digs folks, so you must all come to my eventual housewarming party.

3) Court is stressful and boring at the same time. But things have been clarified, and I now know that I must pay all monies by Friday (aack!) and we must all be up and gone by Sunday (aack again!) but mostly that next Monday it will All Be Over (zomg yaay!). So from now until Sunday I am going to be Very Busy, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

4) Recent media consumptions include:

(a) [livejournal.com profile] colubra gave me City of Saints and Madmen as a housewarming gift. It involves both giant squid, our eternal cthonic foe, and mushrooms, my recent nemesis, and is thus far simply delightful.

(b) I've started reading the webcomic Girl Genius, and I quite like it. MOAR JAEGERS! :D :D :D [livejournal.com profile] mephron, you may look forward to many months of pestering and discussion. [livejournal.com profile] kleenestar, if you don't read this already, you might want to think about it.

(c) Soooo after not watching Heroes all last season, due to...contrariness, I watched the first episode last night with Blair. Spoilers behind cut because...I'm nice. )

So I have yet to post my reaction to the book. I will do so soon, in appropriately exuberant language, but first I want to talk about Snape. )
psychick: (Health Benefits)
Have book. Read aloud back and forth with Joe. Up to Chapter 15. So tired got the hiccups...sleep, yes.
psychick: (Health Benefits)
Quick non-spoilery review of Order of the Phoenix:

An excellent interpretation. It had everything in it that needed to be in it, and a lot of what happened was much more intense seeing it than it was reading about it. Which is exactly what a movie should do, I think.

Well done!

*passes out*

Back in de office. Tiredy.

I've said before that I'd rather be with my friends than sleep...but I fail to take into account that my friends don't have to get up and do things in the morning, and thus they get a lot more sleep than me.

I need to do more HP art. Because the masses like it and I crave the praise. CRAVE IIIIT!!!!
Also, I draw Snape with little to no provocation.

SO! Towards that end, I invite people to make requests. Thursday. Dana. BUT PLEASE, if your request might possibly contain a spoiler, PLEASE EMAIL ME DIRECTLY.
psychick: (I Spy)
Art!!!

Yaaay free day.

WARNING: ALL IMAGES CONTAIN SPOILERS (except the first one)

Some Snape heads. (NO spoilers)

Of Course I Will. (SPOILER - HBP Chapter 2)

Snape's Rage! (SPOILER - HBP Ending)

The last one is the good one.

Did anyone else know about this?

Today, I am "Serdaigle Exécutif" as I have business clothes in quasi-Ravenclaw colors. Because you know I was going to dress up somehow. :-)

Went and looked at bicycles at lunch. Seems that bikes with gears are about $100 more than "cruisers" (which have no gears or handle-squeezy brakes). Honestly...I'm torn. I mean, I intend to use the bike in the city, so I don't really need to have crazy extras, but what if I go camping and want to bring it?
:-/

Thoughts?
