Today I had a job interview for a new teaching job next year. Somehow, the words "dildo" and "vagina" both occurred during the conversation. BEST INTERVIEW EVER.
alianora: "Stop that, my hands are dirty." Leia/Han (STARWARS: I'm nice men.)
Job hunting sucks, and yet, i cant seem to find the energy to care all that much about being non-renewed. maybe this means my meds are working properly. or that i just dont give a fuck, idk. the father person randomly offered to pay for me to go back to school, which would be cool if i had any idea what i wanted to do.  i've always been interested in library science and being a librarian, but i dont want to go back to school for something i feel like i dont know enough about. any librarians on the flist who can talk to me about it?

i want Glee to come back. there is nothing on to watch/fangirl. I miss writing. I have no motivation to do anything. maybe my meds ARENT working.

i've been watching Yamapi's Route 66 trip, which is seriously kind of awesome, in a very understated way. Pi speaking English and encountering random people and eating his way across the US. it's amazing. He has one suitcase, plays with glowsticks alone in his hotel room, and stays in many strange places. Also, if i walked into the laundrymat and saw this, i think I would die:


The other caps I have no excuse for, except pretty.




Also, I am completely bored with all of my music. Suggestions? Links? Anything?

Thank you thank you thank you for the kind soothing words the other day. Things still suck, but I've hit somewhere between so-stressed-i-cant-eat and are-you-fucking-kidding-me-with-this-bullshit?

In other news, I've decided to retire from teaching to become a professional Angry Feminist. That way I would be paid to yell at people for their bullshit. I think it sounds AMAZING.
alianora: Text: You win again, gravity (FUTURAMA: Gravity wins!)
Whining and frustration and word vomit under the cut, all real life crap.

bleh )

I would dearly like to tell my flist my feelings about Glee (conflicted), my feelings about the Grilled Cheezus ep of Glee (REALLY FUCKING UNHAPPY), and my feelings about my face (ow ow ow).

Because I can only focus on one of the three, i shall explain to you about my face. My beautiful, previously undamaged face.

The GOOD news is that my nose isn't broken.

The BAD news is that on Tuesday, I was working with a kid at a table. I leaned over to show him something, and he very suddenly jerked hard my direction, slamming his skull into the bridge of my nose. His only saving grace is that is was an accident. Otherwise I would have thrown him straight out the window.

Like I said, it isn't broken, but I do have a swollen, bruised nose and two black eyes. The black eyes are subtle enough that, instead of looking like I just got a skull to the face, I look like I haven't slept in a week. I'm not sure if that's an improvement.

The doctor said that I would have a four to five day headache and OMG HE WASN'T KIDDING. I worked yesterday, but I drove to work today - realizing on the way that ME DRIVING was a horrible idea after nearly getting in two wrecks in ten minutes - walked in and told the director that i really needed to come home because my head might pop off my body without warning.

I still feel like crap and wanna stay home tomorrow, but I can't. I only have so many sick days, and I need to save them in case the child gets sick.

So, the moral of this story is OW MY HEAD.

holy crap, so much whining )

Fuck that. Someone gimme some drama or Firefly prompts.

1. I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. We will soon discover if this was a mistake, because i requested really random things, and if [livejournal.com profile] anenko or [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter end up being my Santa, I wont be in the least shocked. Besides Glee, because SOMEONE seriously needs to write fic where Puck raises the baby, I requested RPF-SYTYCD, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, and Mei-chan. Because the WORLD NEEDS MORE MEI-CHAN DAMMIT.

I offered an insane amount of fandoms for me, so there is a slight chance i wont get [livejournal.com profile] magelette FOR THE THIRD TIME, but if that happens...I'm not sure I would even know how to write. How can i write if it's not for Kara? Help me. I feel lost and alone.

2. My boss has progressed to new degrees of bafflement. And by "bafflement," i mean "insanity." I walked past her twice today, smiled and greeted her, and she didn't so much as glance at me, much less answer me. Later, Brandus told me that HIS principal had pulled him to the side, and warned him he needed to talk to me, and that i needed to seriously kiss her ass to get on her good side. WHAT THE HELL. Is she bitching about me behind my back? What about? I KISS HER CRAZY ASS ALL THE TIME.


I fucking hate her, seriously.

3. [livejournal.com profile] teffy asked me questions for this meme:
* Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
* I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
* Update your journal with the answers to the questions
* Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions

My questions were:
1. What is your favorite musical number that's been on Glee so far?
Hmm, the ones I have rewatched the most often have been Mercedes singing "Bust Your Windows," and Puck singing "Sweet Caroline." I loved Bust Your Windows, because I loved seeing Mercedes being front and center. And honestly, her compared to the tiny skinny Cheerios? I'd do Mercedes.

And there is NOTHING MORE AWESOME then Puck singing Sweet Caroline to Rachel. I could not believe it when they shipped them - I was already shipping them, but not expecting it, and then! and then! It was like Christmas and my birthday all wrapped up in one!

2. What Hogwarts house is the best and why?
Hmmm. I think they all have good points. I can be remarkably Hufflepuffian on some days, though heart and soul, I am a Ravenclaw. I could use a good bit more of Slytherin and Gryffindor some times.

3. Reminisce with me about the good old days of Domilie and Dombilie?
AWWWWWWW, the cutest people EVER, seriously! I miss the fandom of S1 of Lost - with Charlie and Claire cuteness, which lead to shipping Dom and Emilie, and where Dom goes, Billy should be too, so let's throw HIM in there, too, and it was so lovely. With such cute fic! I still have all of the manips that [livejournal.com profile] literarylemmingdid of Dom and Emilie saved on my computer.

4. Who is awesome-er? Danny Love? Jayne Cobb? Or John Casey?
You are fired. This question is mean.

Honestly, as much as I adore John Casey and Danny Love, my heart forever belongs to Jayne. Now, I know that Adam Baldwin has had more time to settle into the role of John Casey, and I respect that, but JAYNE COBB. He's big, he's tough, he's more then a little self centered...but he loves his mama, and he takes care of his crew, and he's THE HERO OF CANTON. There is no defeating that!

5. Are you doing Nanowrimo this year?
I debated and wibbled and stared at the website so many times..and then lost track of the days and forgot to sign up. Im both disappointed and relieved.

Hi! Today has SUCKED! I got stuck in a meeting down at the county office, and then spent 20 minutes on the phone with a guy at the alternative licensing center trying to figure out why my HR department told me to call him, because HE certainly had no idea!

And yet? HE WAS THE MOST HELPFUL PERSON I HAVE TALKED TO TODAY. he was lovely! i explained the whole situation - i didnt get my teacher's license until MARCH, because the licensing people kept requesting more and more paperwork from us, and refused to believe that i REALLY DIDNT NEED TO TAKE ANOTHER DAMN PRAXIS TEST FOR THE LOVE OF TOAST, so in MARCH, licensing sends me my cleared SpEd license, and a provisional license in preK.

i need two classes - a total of six hours, to clear my provisional license. Ive known this since Jan 15.

here's where it get's tricky.

registration for all classes in ANY college/university IN ANY PART OF NC closed on Jan 15.

the licensure department insists that i have to take all six hours before the start of the 2009 school year.

only one of the classes i need is offered during the summer! GEE THAT'S HELPFUL!

So, per the reccomendation of the lovely man at the alternative licensing center, i just spent the last four hours online combing through FIFTEEN DIFFERENT COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY class offerings for the summer, looking for any class that MIGHT could be considered to be the class I need.

he told me to email me, and he would get me permission to count it as the class i needed.


and it only MIGHT work. i have my fingers crossed. or else, i am so not kidding about raising llamas. im going to move in with [livejournal.com profile] alitria, and we'll raise llamas that spit acid to sell as perimeter guards.

..she didn't know that until she read it here, BUT IT'S TOTALLY A PLAN.

Anyway, enough bitching. You know what sounds like fun? Besides the fact that Free Cone Day was at Ben and Jerry's today, and Free Cone Day is always a DAMN GOOD DAY.

what sounds like fun to me is [livejournal.com profile] dorama_watch, which involves watching dramas actually WITH OTHER PEOPLE. like, on Tuesdays, we're going to watch Nodame Cantibile! On Sundays and Thursdays, we're going to watch Love Shuffle! And then? WE WILL SQUEE. TOGETHER. LIKE IT SHOULD BE. Suggestions for the next two shows havent been opened yet, but we're starting the fun on Thursday.

come and play, because if this stupid thing with school doesnt work out, im going to drown myself in dramas, and ill need some people there to keep me sane.

..well, as sane as i get anyway.

We're on a brief picspam hiatus at the moment, due to the fact ive been in GA and away from most of my discs and dramas and episodes and movies and the disturbingly large list i have of things to watch. BUT! I will be back in NC tomorrow, and will commence annoying you with such things as:

-Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Nephrite - All Too Human
-Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Losing the mask
-Full House the kdrama: 3 attempted proposals
-Hana Yori Dango: Makino punches things. And Dorkface. And a bear.
-Proposal Daisakusen: Manga cafes or pushing taxis


I might also do some Roswell picspam, because ive only seen one Candy focused picspam so far. everything else has been Max/Liz, and that doesn't fly for me.

Anyway! While i was in GA, i managed to make my kid some felt food for the kitchen he is getting for his birthday (WHICH IS ON THE 23rd, HOLY CRAP VOLDEMORT IS TURNING TWO. BRACE YOURSELVES), as well as actually finishing watching Proposal Daisakusen, which ive only been watching at a snail's pace for the past several MONTHS. and probably the only thing that prompted me to actually finish it, and push past the fear of Kenzo making a complete idiot out of himself was the fact I currently have a crush on Yamapi.

..a tiny crush. teeny. it's miniscule. It's not like Ive bothered my friends into sending me NewS mp3s, or that's ive downloaded four different live versions of Daite Senorita or anything...*cough*

Really, it's nothing. It has nothing to do with Pi's hips, or his emo hair, or HIS HIPS, or anything.

Regardless of my issues, ProDai is a little slow to get started - it's not boring, but it draws you in. It's...gentle, is how [livejournal.com profile] literarylemming put it, and we'll go with that.

the fact that it involves a fairy and time travel is an added bonus to the Yamapi cake, but it is honestly very good. I enjoyed it tremendously, even though i had to take breaks sometimes - mainly due to my (never fully realized) fear that Kenzo was going to embarrass himself RIGHT THERE ON SCREEN IN FRONT OF ME, and i'd never be able to look him in the face again.

...or something.

I was very hesitant going in, because it is about a guy going back in time to stop the girl he loves from marrying someone else. that..squicked me. but they handle it so well..it's always little things he does, making her smile at this time, wanting to be the first one to wish her happy birthday..it's not creepy.

and it's very heartfelt and moving and i totally cried through the entire episode eight. I COULDNT HELP IT. HE WAS SO SAD AND WITHDRAWN AND HE LOVES HER SO.

So..a vid might be in the making. maybe. i have new software, and i have to learn how to use it. a learning experience! that's what it is!

Other then that, I started watching Love Shuffle tonight, and wow, am i going to love this show! it isnt enough that it has Tamaki and Shota in it, NOOOOO, it has to be FUNNY and CLEVER and then throw in a little HALF NAKED SHOTA and DRIPPING WET IN A WHITE BUTTON DOWN TAMAKI. mmmmmmmmm. seriously, it looks insanely fun, and im shipping everyone with everyone regardless of gender. Maybe it will end in a big orgy!

other then that, i might not have a job next year because teaching is screwing me over YET AGAIN! this time, it's because they gave me until June 2009 to complete 6 hours of course work. Which would be fine, only ONE of the classes i need isnt available in the summer, and OH YEAH, they didnt tell me which ones i needed until Jan 14. Which, again, would be fine, but the 14th was the cut off for SPRING semester. HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO GET THESE CLASSES HELLO? the head of HR called me. she told me i could always reapply next year to get a pure sped job. wow! that's just what i've always wanted! a reason to go back on prozac!

Fuck it. I'm raising llamas.
