Hey, if you don't feel like reading an atheist's reflections on god and prayer, feel free to skip this post.  I promise I won't hold it against you.  I wrote it mostly for myself, and while I don't feel like I said anything particularly offensive, that's a personal thing, your mileage may vary, and it's not really my call to make.

That's why it's under a cut. )

I don't know why I felt like writing this today.  I don't usually talk about religion or my lack of it much.  I guess between seeing so much talk about Easter and me being in such a good mood today, I felt a little nostalgic or philosophical or something.

Anyway, I hope you all have had wonderful days.  =)

Your result for The 3 Variable Funny Test...

the Wit

(57% dark, 15% spontaneous, 21% vulgar)

your humor style:

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

You probably loved the Office. If you don't know what I'm

Eh, I guess that's about right, though I do like well-placed spontaneity.

Just going to drop this off.  Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] serika_san :

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more than one word. Then copy & paste this post to your own journal so I can leave a word about you.

... This thing needs a title.  I labeled the file on my computer as "Summer Storm," but I don't really feel like that works.  Though, it's still vastly better than the other fic I started and gave up on, which I decided to call "Clarissa Explains It All."  .... Probably for the best I didn't finish that one.

Anyway!  Here we go.

It's three-thirty in the morning.

The cat I mentioned in the last post is actively hunting a mouse.

How am I going to sleep tonight? 
rhubarb: (Default)
--A nap
--The cat to come cuddle with me
--My drive to write to come back
--The PT Secret Santa reveal to happen.  I'm feeling a bit attention whore-ish, if the subject of the post didn't tip you off.
--If not for the reveal to happen, for my giftee to at least let me know if she liked what I wrote her.  It's been over a week since I gave it to her, now. 
--A sweater
--Some tea

I'll be back with something a little less bratty later, maybe.
rhubarb: (b-but!)
So.  Pas de deux.

How do I pluralize that term?  When the rest of the sentence (... and fic, yes) is English, I mean.  I'm sure I can't just stick an "s" on the end, and google is telling me I should just leave it, but my two AM grammar instinct is informing me that I have to do something to indicate that I'm referring to more than one, and it's been a year and a half since I studied French, and I'm not sure how the rules would apply when I'm using a French term in an English context, and ... oh, hi there, run-on sentence.

Okay, now that that's out of my system, back to actually writing the stupid thing.  I'll figure it out tomorrow, after I've had some sleep.  Feel free to ignore this nonsense post.

... But, seriously, if you know, tell me?

More of my silly Princess Tutu notes.

Akts 22 and 23 )

So, I started doing a marathon Princess Tutu rewatch late Friday night, and it occurs to me that I've reached the point I left off in taking notes on my last rewatch.  So, in the interest of finishing something for once in my life, notes recommence.  There will probably be more tomorrow (or later today, as the case may be), if only because I'm a bad student and really don't want to study for my Stats final. >>;;

Akts 20 and 21; Warnings: spoilers, bad jokes, stating the obvious, capslock )
rhubarb: (business as usual)
So, after spending a couple days having frantic phone conversations with Dad, reading lots of Calvin and Hobbes, and eating lots of chocolate, I was able to get a new laptop last night.

There will be no liquids brought within a three-foot radius of this thing, if I have anything to say about it.  *cracks knuckles* 
rhubarb: (oh shi-)

Guess who spilled orange juice on her laptop?

Taking it to the campus IT Help place super early tomorrow.  I'm in the library right now.
rhubarb: (sigh)
It has come to my attention that the songs Ego, by Beyonce Knowles, and Sexy Bitch, by David Guetta are the pinnacles of musical genius.

I can't think of any other reason my roommate would find it necessary to have had them on a constant loop all afternoon.
rhubarb: (cuddle)
Now that I am no longer separated from my Princess Tutu DVDs, I'm picking back up with my rewatch of the series.

Warnings: spoilers, possible over analyzation, lame jokes, and a bit of capslock abuse.

Two finals done, two to go.  Sorry for being so scarce, lately.  I've been trying to keep up with my flist, but between getting assignments done and studying, I haven't been around as much as I'd like to be.  Well, soon enough it'll be summer break, and I'll have loads of time to waste on livejournal.

In an effort to make some progress on the Princess Tutu fanfic that has been in my head since October but refuses to be written, I'm going to re-watch the series.  As I do, I'll be taking notes/writing stupid commentary and posting it here.  It's really for my own benefit and it probably won't be particularly entertaining, so there's no need to read it unless you happen to feel like it.  I'm always open for discussion, though.

 Ah, freshly squeezed orange juice ... all over my monitor.  

I guess that's what I get for trying to peel an orange and read my flist at the same time.

*goes back to homework*
rhubarb: (Toph)
 Appropriately enough, we discussed Machiavelli in Humanities, today.

On a separate note, the water in our bathroom is coming out brown.  It wasn't like that when I left this morning.  I wonder if this is happening to anybody else.
