SOUNDTRACK FOR YOUR LIFE MEME

6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool... just type it in!
So yes, the swine flu. The world's going batshit crazy about it. In my little corner of the world no one's been reported to have it, though I fear for Caitlyn, who went home early.
My former Lang. Arts teacher is a total germophobe and he totes disinfected every inch of his classroom, I swear. Mr. W wants us to wipe our desks down twice a week instead of twice a month. Mr. L, my current science teacher, bought hand sanitizer. Mrs. F doesn't seem that perturbed.
Go Mrs. F. :P
Watched "Bastille Day" and "Act of Contrition" today. Lee and Zarek are epic tools.
Technically done with New Moon (skimmed last few chappies cos once Ed's back, everything goes uber corny as he dramatically declares his undying lurve for Bella and crap). If there's one thing I want to see in the NM movie, it's Head!Edward.
It would be totesly awesomesauce. When Bella does something stupid, head!Edward (Headward!) could pop out of nowhere and no one else but Bella can see him, just like Gaius and head!Six! He can yell at her and she can yell back and everyone else will look at her like she's going crazy
Yes, I want to see Headward. That's all I want to see. :P
In Mrs. F news...her students are going to take home
Nevertheless it's not very human at the moment. It looks pretty darn real and weighs about 6 pounds, but at least it doesn't pee and poop and move and stuff. Cos then we'd need to get off of this Earth ASAP before the Cylons return.
Kay, so I went to a Comedy Sportz event at school earlier tonight and it was WIN.
Here's how it was WIN.
( What's on that? Laura Roslin? OH MY GODS, MY NAME IS LAURA ROSLIN! )
Kay, so it wasn't what I'd expected. But it was still WIN. :]
I'll wait a moment before I get to the epic fail part though. First of all, I leeched BSG season one off of Caitlyn! Yay! *happy dance*
Next, the class discussion about the digestive system in Mrs. F's class started thusly:
Mrs. F: "All of us humans (not Cylons) need food in order to survive."
Talk about EPIC WIN. Which, btw, is spelled E-P-I-C W-I-N.
I also borrowed New Moon. Bella is such an emo kid right now.
Okay, here's the WTF moment of the day.
Mrs. F and I are talking about BSG, missing Billy, and crack!fics while she's on duty (supervising the lunch tables) when this guy comes onto campus randomly and asks for a girl named (using made up name) Emily.
Mrs. F, naturally, doesn't trust him and tells him to tell the office.
The guy gets pissed off and was all like, "Don't talk to me." He walks off. Mrs. F and I gape at him.
Me: "That was crossing a line."
The guy comes back, and by now the little group is consisting of Mrs. F (Laura Roslin Reincarnate of the Epic Win), Mr. W (history teacher), and me (acting like a third wheel).
Mr. W: (to the guy, in his military authoritarian voice) "Excuse me, but I do believe you disregarded my colleague here."
Guy: (Still Not Getting It) "Don't talk to me! Come on, Emily, we're leaving!"
Mrs. F: (being all epic and Laura Roslin-ish) "Why do you say that?
Guy: "You guys are racist whites." (he's African-American, btw)
Mr. W: "Excuse me, but that sort of talk is not acceptable."
Guy: "Don't talk to me! Nuh-uh, don't talk to me! You're all racists!"
Mr. W: (looks ready to murder)
Mrs. F: "LOOK AT ALL THESE PEOPLE AROUND YOU!"
Mrs. F: "LOOK AT THEM! YOU CAN ASK ANYONE HERE IF WE'RE RACIST OR NOT!"
Guy: "Emily, we're leaving."
Emily: "Ignore my brother-in-law. Please." (looking mortified)
Mrs. F: (eyeroll) "Oh yeah, we're SO racist."
Me: "What is he ON?"
Talk about EPIC FAIL. And random. :P
On a side note, much of the going-ons in the story reflect my own trip to the Grand Canyon.
Title: That Little Bird Is Gonna Jump...
Author: Lily Winterwood
Characters: Bill Adama, Laura Roslin, Lee Adama, Kara Thrace, and Billy Keikeya
Summary: Total AU crack. Bill, Laura, Lee, Kara, and Billy visit the Grand Canyon (and Lee and Billy have issues). No spoilers for anything.
Disclaimer: I don't own the Grand Canyon, nor do I own BSG. This is sheer crack, and RDM and the National Park Service would have never thought up such an atrocity.
( Maybe it's because he's Bill with a 'y'. )
If this crack deserves a Vegas or Sedona or Flagstaff sequel, tell me. I'm not too thrilled about it, but hey, fanservice is fanservice.
why is it that little kids love what older kids consider as chores? my little bro Kenny's always eager to do homework and stuff. :P
dishwashing is apparently no different. my two little brothers, Kenny and Lewis are more willing to do the dishwashing duty than their older sister, me. :P
mom: Lily, you're doing the dishes tonight.
Kenny: I wanna do the dishes!
Lewis: I wanna do the dishes!
Kenny: I'll wash the bowls and plates!
Lewis: I'll wash the phone!
mom, dad, and Lily: *crack up*
Hey, I'm in Arizona! :P
The travel plan's for us to go to Flagstaff and stay there for three days. Then we'll go to the Grand Canyon and finally to Vegas.
The car ride was Boring with a capital B. I listened to iRoslin and read Twilight. Whee.
So far, I've kinda conceded that yes, Bella is a Mary Sue and Edward is a Gary Stu. But then again, Mary Sues and Gary Stus belong together (so the better characterized can get left alone :P). Verdict? I is a Bella/Edward shipper.
Jacob seems pretty awesome, but I haven't seen much of him yet. Alice has just made her entrance. Carlisle is awesome. :]
As for teams, I'm still neutral. Edward is pretty cool (despite being a Gary Stu) and I think Bella is lucky to get someone like him-even if the price is him being a vampire. :P Life's a bitch and then you get bitten.
Their relationship is rather unrealistic, I have to agree. It goes from "I hate you" to "I love you" in a matter of chapters. I wanted more a friendship between the two. Like an Adama/Roslin sort of partnership/friendship. But I guess because Edward is allegedly hot that that's not much of an option. :P ;]
But back to life. It is good. Ish. I miss mah friends. :[
Anyone going to Vegas or the Grand Canyon? Plz keep me company!!!!! ;] *looks pointedly at laurandbillever *
I'm reading Twilight for the first time. The verdict so far is...
Bella's borderline-Sue as of this moment. Edward's pretty cool, I haven't seen Jacob yet, and it seems to me that everyone frakking LOVES Bella here. Um. WTF, man?
Right now, she's clumsy, yes. She looks plain (but people think she looks nice, I guess). She's related to the police chief, she's done just about everything in the cirriculum (and was in AP in Phoenix), she can cook, and she's got Perfect McPerfection mildly interested in her.
Once again, I'm reserving on dealing the final Mary Sue sentence. I can smell a downward spiral into Suedom for her, though.
But otherwise, it's pretty interesting.
In other news, Mrs. F got to the part in S3 where the resistance escapes! :] I printed out misscam 's latest story (A Murder on Galactica, the best mystery fanfic I've read so far. Laik srsly) and read bits of it to her. She likes it. :]
*happy dance* I'm going to Vegas and the Grand Canyone tomorrow! And I might have intrawebz cos mom's bringing da laptop. Yay!
can be found at lepetitrien.
Please, Friday, come sooner! I'm going to the Grand Canyon next week for spring break. :]
Today in Language Arts we had a chat about Dances With Wolves. Which is odd, because we're supposed to be discussing quack remedies in Tom Sawyer and how Twain satirizes it. But that's Ms. C for you. :P
It went like this:
Ms. C: Has anyone watched Dances With Wolves?
Me: *is doodling on sticky notes* Bwuh? *perks up* Dances With Wolves? OH MY GODS MARY MCDONNELL WAS IN THAT MOVIE!!!!
Ms. C: *eyeroll* Yes...
You see, Ms. C is not as awesome as Mrs. F. Why? Well, she doesn't care about Mary McDonnell. I know, le gasp! MM is, like, the most awesome actress evar!
Which is why I want to go to Dragon*Con, gods damnit!
now there are pictures.
( meow )
In other news... Mrs. F, Caitlyn, and I want to go to Dragon*Con, but it's on the other side of the country. *pouts* As soon as I get wind of one with Mary McDonnell and Katee Sackhoff in the Los Angeles area, we are so going and we're going to dress up! :]
I think I'll go as Boomer for Halloween. Now, where do I get military tanks?
Mrs. F looks very presidential. She has a suit jacket and a white crossover blouse. ;]
Oh, and in other-other news, it's icedteainthebag 's birthday! :] ( Bill looks like Lawrence of Arabia. :P )
Happy birfday, icedtea. You wanted Bill in Laura's headscarf. ;]
"So. Yes, this is mah lj. Spiffy, non? The header's a little spoilery and kinda odd but that A/R and BSG for ya and the blurb is also a little spoilery but let's just forget that and move on to other stuff, kthnx.
"First off, there's the PPC. They go around fandoms and kill Mary Sues and shit. They're also insane. I have two Agents and two Scientists and they're all loony in some way. There are also minis, which are little monsters that spawn from mispelled character names. I have mini-Balrogs and mini-Dragons and mini-Centurions. Go me.
"Next thing is BSG. It's Battlestar Galactica, the best show on TV since... ever, and it ended on March 20th. *sniff* I miss mah BSG, so I write a lot of fanfic. Fanfic is a fan's story about an already published/aired/what have you-ed story...show...thing. It's very good practice for writing Original Fic.
"There's bad fanfic and there's good fanfic. The bad fanfic I like to make fun of here. They'll be friendslocked. Mwahahahahahhaha.
"Finally, there's stuff about life. Mrs. F is code for a certain person I'm sure you all know about. Other people are just other people.
"One last thing: MY JOURNAL IS MINE, GODSDAMNIT AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE AN ENTRY, DON'T BOTHER REPLYING TO TELL ME WHAT AN INSENSITIVE JERK THAT I AM! Although those might be friendslocked as well... :P
"So yes, that's mah lj. Welcome to the insanity."
And I'm back there again. BSG is ending! Whyyyyyy?!?!?
I need to go make a playlist for the BSG fangirl going through Battlestar withdrawal. ;]
But on happier news... the total count of BSG fans in my life has increased! Let's welcome Jessica (who's also a Trekkie), Jessica's english teacher, and Caitlyn's dance teacher!
Of course, the more the merrier. :] :] :]
Now for our daily Mrs. F update...
~The Cylons have taken over her computer. (That's what she said. Really.)
~Adama came back from the dead for her (she's watching from the beginning and waiting for the DVDs, and she's on season 2 right now)
~I am swaying her towards A/R! Yay!
~When she found out that EJO and MM might not appear on Caprica, she was all like, "WHAT? NO!" So say we all.
~She's looking forward to A/R's first kiss scene in Ressurection Ship. :]
