OHio is my state!

And this is how I feel:






I live! Yay!

I return after four months to tell you all that I will not be watching Gossip Girl tonight, because the writers are fully and obviously evil.

Case in point:

Clearly, I am not emotionally mature enough to handle it when they destroy all the hope in the world, ever the only good thing on this stupid show.

Also! Hi!!!!

I'm so not over this yet

I keep telling myself I don't care about Gossip Girl, because it's GOSSIP GIRL, but then I see things like this:

Seriously, in what universe is Chuck Bass the better option over Dan Humphrey. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Why is this my life?

Judging from what I see on my TV, ballet is the new vampires.


I can live with that.

The Vampire Diaries Gave Me Feelings.

This is the longest episode reaction I've had since my halcyon days in Supernatural's fandom. My thoughts are all over the place, so this is in list form. As you do.

Of course, I say that, but I now have the whole of season 3 saved on my DVR, and my husband is just itching to delete them, but I want to have a marathon before I let him do that. I tend to like shows more when I marathon them.

My life

I went to a book signing with Veronica Roth last week. She is ADORABLE in a very dorky sort of way. Then I devoured Insurgent. Sort of. It took me a couple days to get into it. There is one thing that nearly every YA novel does that I can't stand: namely, first person POV. I have such a knee-jerk DNW reaction against it; it always takes me out of the story and it's difficult for me to get into stories written in first person, unless the story is in journal form, because that at least makes sense. BUT. Every YA novel I've read in the past year, with the exception of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) and the Heist Society series, has been in first person.

Also, both Insurgent and Divergent were very... choppy. (I think The Hunger Games has this problem, too - among other problems that frustrate me b/c I so loved the first book and then...not so much). So, while I like the story and the characters, they weren't the most elegantly written stories. I still recommend them though.

I also read the newest Gallagher Girls book, Out of Sight, Out of Time, which I found super cute (as I find all of Cater's books). Then I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Wayward Children, which I liked, but it wasn't totally my thing (let me be honest, though I like plot and want it to be good and feel it's necessary to have more than romance, I read YA often for the fluffy romance, and this felt rushed and lacking - this is my own issue though), and Tempest, by Julie Cross, which I also liked, but sort of forgot about immediately after I put it down.

You can tell when my life is stressing me out by the number of YA novels I read. They're like my version of comfort mac and cheese.

In other news related to YA, Gossip Girl is stressing me out so much more than any TV show has any right to, especially as I don't even watch the show - I just fast forward to the Dair stuff and ignore everything else. (HOW does DAIR even exist on this show? Hooooow?) So, I've been mainlining Dair fanvids, as they're the only thing making me happy about GG anymore.

They are PERFECTION. *sobs*

The Diaries of Vampires

I don't know what it says about me that my immediate reaction to last night's Vampire Diaries is Read more...Collapse )

So, I am getting married in five days! FIVE DAYS. Everything is basically done (meaning, food and booze and wedding license, so the rest is fluff), and Chris has off all week except today to finish the little stuff. We went to a wedding last Saturday that was meant to start at 6:30 and didn't get underway until after 8:00. We figure if we can just be on time, we'll be ahead of the game. Apparently, they were late because they had underestimated the time it would take to set up, and then the bride was very late to her hair/make-up stuff. I'm really glad we went with a venue that does everything for us, particularly, as I've learned from this endeavor that I am a control freak, but have zero desire to plan things. It's an interesting combination.

My hair is freshly died, I have a fake tan and my teeth are very white. I am easily the most fake I have ever or will ever be.

Also, my state is an awesome state at the moment: The Ohio State University, the University of Cincinnati (my alma matter), Xavier University (where I am currently a grad student), and Ohio University are ALL IN THE SWEET SIXTEEN. Four Ohio schools; two in my city! No matter what, at least one Ohio school is in the Elite Eight, as Cincy and OSU play each other Thursday night. My heart belongs to OSU football, but I'm definitely all about Cincinnati for basketball! It's sort of a win/win for me, though.

...Rather like the Fandom March Madness was a win/win. THOUGH, really, LESLIE KNOPE! I was so proud of fandom!

Also, I got a promotion at work, which, I, um, really didn't want - or well, I have some doubts about, we'll say, because I hate change and it puts me mostly on a campus I don't want to be on and it takes me out of the classroom and into administration (the ENEMY). BUT, I think I can do a good job, and there's no one else to do it. I'm accepting on an interim basis and if it's really not for me, I'll help them fill it and go back to my current position, which I love and am very good at.

I predict this week will be a good week, and then I'll be on a beach.
