(I've tried patience)

My goodness...

My dear current writer, Victoria, just called me "the most amazing beta in the Western Hemisphere". ~blinks at screen~ ~ggls~ If I'm that good, why don't I get any work, hmm? It's my favourite thing to do...

Anyway...today promises to be relatively dull, I think...which is a shame, but there you go.

Oh! And I dreamed I was Skids! Well, I was Skids when I dreamed it, but it's always *damn* cool when that happens.

OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE...

.....I AM FUCKING PRETTIER THAN HER!

And those of you who know me will know that I don't say that often...

~rages along with MSP, conveniently raging music atm~

I am prettier...I couldn't pretend I was more intelligent, I don't *know*...but...but...but....but.......I'm prettier goddammit....

~cries~ ~wonders how many more members of this freakin' family she'll fall for when they get to the age for it~

This is just silly I know......but....I'M FUCKING PRETTIER GODDAMMIT.

~sigh~ Oh...oh, love me. ~cries~

Yes. More tears. Certainly.

    'Calling All The Heroes', It Bites. 80s compilation box set!
(I've tried patience)

New music!

Yes! AGAIN! Even though I have no money and Christmas is coming up! Ahahahahahahahaha....~more manic laughter~

So. We have New Wave Generation - New Romantics which is currently cracking me up 'cause it's got The Tubes (glam/punk) and Pete Wylie (thinks he's Lord Byron) and The Knack (the 1979 Dandy Warhols, ROFLMAO) on it.

Also Modern Art - The Best Of John Foxx; suitably a) dahling and b) cheap.

And "The Best Of The Human League". It's as bizarre a best of as I've ever heard, it's got obscure B-sides and album tracks on...SO random...but fortunately, it's sort of a pick'n'mix of my very very favourite HL songs, and all for £3.99. God bless.

Well, hurrah. More in a minuet.

~sigh~ Fanfic. Grr. Grr. Idiot writers. Grr.

Things that have annoyed me in fanfic today...

¢ Mary-Sues who help get the characters together. I don't so much mind the other kind.
¢ Ideas like "...but it wasn't so much the touch itself, as the fact that it was Sirius touching him."
¢ SONGFICS. Gah.
¢ The word "moist". "Wet" works just as well and is so much sexier.
¢ Fanfic pretending to have angst and plot just so the characters can have make-up sex.

And also, I would like to add in *extreme* annoyance that the next time I see the word "musky" in fanfic I am going to break the computer screen. What annoys me the *most* is that I know I'm going to see it again because it's in nineteen fanfics out of twenty. It's REALLY ANNOYING ME.

    'The Sound Of Waves', Mick Karn. Love love love love.

Two things that make me laugh...

1) Pete Wylie of The Mighty Wah!. He's on my CD right now and he's *so* melodramatic. Yes; he thinks he's Lord Byron. He really does.

2) Pictures of Harry with a broomstick. It's cracked me up three times today. I'm hopeless.

~muses~

I think...it might be time to remind a certain someone...that I always know everything everyone's thinking even when they don't tell me.
Wait a minute. Make that *especially* when they don't tell me.

Excuse me. My machine is screwed up. This entry is being posted twice.

...because the last one had a typo in it and now I can't fix it because the machine's fucked. ~is angry~

I have before me a questionnaire about mascara (yes. I know.) produced by one of my enterprising fellow students. Question 12 reads :

What do you like aboult [sic] Revlon's mascara?

Duration
Price
Texture/Taste
Colour Range
Brand Image
Packaging
Ease Of Removal

Now, is it just me, or is one of those something you don't tend to associate with mascara?

I don't know what's wrong with this computer, but...

....I do know that I adore "Seconds" by The Human League. I always have, it's an amazing song, and then three years ago I saw them do it live and...~shakes head~ They really are a fantastic band. The whole set was *so* exhilarating. But this song was particularly so...and I'll never forget Phil Oakey standing there shouting "SECONDS!" over and over again and me and my cousin crying because it was so fucking good.

I love that band, and I envy anyone who's getting to see them over the next couple of days.
