I got this meme from [ profile] nvrbnkisst . She assigned me the letter L, so I have to come up with 5 songs I love that start with an L!  

Music is my boyfriend. )

I went home for lunch today, and spontaneously decided that I wanted to eat lunch without any pants on.  So, I did. 

And I was sitting there in my business-casual top, complete with my office name badge/access card hanging around my neck, and no pants, stuffing my face with salad, when my boyfriend came home. 

He was only mildly surprised to find me in that state--arugula hanging out of my mouth and half-clad in the middle of the day. 

Later, I--still pantless, by the way--blurted out, "I don't want to go back to my office; it's boring there." 

The whole lunchtime incident has made me wonder if I'm ever going to grow up.  Probably not, I'm thinking.  Because if it hasn't happened yet, then what are the odds? What?  I'm suddenly just going to wake up one day and be filled to the brim with purpose and think that my worth as a human is in indirect relation to the thickness of the layer of dust on my furniture? Or I'm going to give a shit that my tire pressure is too low?  Or I'm going to start reading Benjamin Franklin biographies instead of pr0ny vampire-show fanfic? That just doesn't sound likely.  

I'm back at work now, wearing pants.  And bored out of my skull. 


Also, I had a dream a few nights ago that my doctor was stalking me and my family. It was elaborate and somewhat vampire-related--his stalking method.  When I told the bf about the dream, he said it sounded like an episode of Vampire Diaries.  And I was all--"You know what?! It WAS like that."  And then I slowly realized that my doctor looks like Elijah. 

The End. 

How are you guys? Is anybody as bored as I am?  Probably not.  I think I win the blue ribbon in boredom.  YAY for me! I'm a winner.

 So, I realize I'm way behind on my 30 days of Buffy meme.  There's a good reason, really there is.  I switched computers, and well... I have a bootleg version of Photoshop--so I have to get my software that keeps Adobe from being able to see that I have a bootleg all set up (because otherwise, the Adobe enforcement team comes and kicks in your door, from what I understand).  For some reason it didn't transfer correctly.  But, soon.  And then there will me more Buffy for everyone!

In the meantime--or memetime (haha--see what I did there?)--I want to do this smut meme from [ profile] ceciliaj .  Cecilia does the best memes.  True facts.  Another true fact? Talking about smut is fun.  

Let's talk about sex, Baby )

So, in a very unfortunate turn of events, this morning, I spilled a soda on my laptop.  Expanded tale of woe )

It was actually kind of hard to decide on a least favorite couple.  It turns out I don't exactly hate any couples.  But I settled on this one...
I don't like any of that stuff. Except theā€”the fighting evil part. Even then, I prefer a nice foot massage )

Apparently we're having rolling blackouts all over the state--and the power in my office keeps going out!  So I got sent home--where there's power! And Internet! And cupcakes!  

This may be the greatest day ever.  


Well, it is now.  It was far less great when I was standing in my pitch black office, trying to find my car keys because I'd put them somewhere on my desk, but couldn't see where.  And there was a brief period of panic when I thought I might have dropped them somewhere in the darkened hall, and now had no way to find them.  And my office phone didn't work--because, duh, no power--and (like an idiot) I had left my cell phone at home--so I couldn't even call my boyfriend and demand that he pick me up immediately and take me home so that I could find my spare key.  Oh, anxiety attacks.  Old friends.  So glad you could stop by this morning. 

My freak out looked something like this, only without the car, because I couldn't get into my stupid car:


But then I found my keys, came home, made biscuits and bacon and am going to take a nap.  And maybe watch Veronica Mars.  Or an episode or two of Buffy.  Or maybe I'll start BSG finally.  The world is my oyster.

I'm stealing [ profile] ceciliaj 's movie meme because it looked fun and time consuming. And I had some time that needed to be consumed. So here goes: my favorite movies released each year of my life, then narrowed down to one movie per decade--with an explanation of why I have the greatest taste in movies ever.

I think what this meme will accomplish will be to out me as a lover of incredibly silly movies. Also, I'm going to cheat. There are just some years for which I can't possibly narrow it down to just one movie. So, I'm a dirty cheating cheater. Let's get started, shall we?

Okay. So, there must be something wrong with my computer's microphone, because after trying to record a thousand times, I finally switched to my boyfriend's computer, and it worked the very first time.

I just listened to it, and I have, like, a Shatner-esque pausing situation happening. I WAS NERVOUS OKAY? I promise I don't pause like that all the time. Also I kind of cough a few times, so, sorry about that. Allergies.

He just sent me an e-mail with the subject line "Get a hat" that says:

And hold the fuck on to it!!! Nicholas Brendan and Clare Kramer are doing a karaoke meet and greet the Friday night that the Austin Comic Con is in town. Of course it is a hundred dollars a ticket, but if we are already paying $100.00 for the tickets what's another $100.00.

My boyfriend. He's funny. And he references Tina Fey skits in his emails that encourage the spending of exorbitant amounts of money to see Buffy cast members.

I'm weak, okay? I knew that this would happen when more than 2 people posted about it in short succession. I never stood a chance.

Whatever. It's here.

I have nothing up. Well, one reblog--and it's pretty funny, I think. So, if you go there, read the whole thing--because the stupid format cuts it off before the pertinent part. But whatever. I don't have a profile picture. And I have no idea what to use as a profile picture. Right now, my tumblr looks like a poor little orphan. I've gotta figure out what I'm doing over there. It took a bizarrely great amount of time to fill in my information-free profile. And I think I may have gone on Pixies overload (user name, blog name, and "about" all referencing one band is maybe a little much, no?). But whatever. There's nothing else that came to mind. I'm pretty sure I'm putting a compleeetely insane amount of importance on this--why am I stressing about a profile picture and Pixies references? I do not know. Probably because I'm insane.

But, hey! Tumblr. Let's tumbl or whatever the verb would be.

 How exciting! My first ever meme. (I'm easily amused.)  Tagged by <lj user="ohwaluvusbab">
If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own lj and replace any question that you dislike with a new question.

Tag eleven people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

What song are you currently addicted to?

"Deceptacon" by Le Tigre

What's your favorite season?

Fall, I guess. But late fall. Or winter. I'm in central Texas, so there's not really a fall fall--only summer and a brief period of not summer. I prefer not summer.

What's the latest movie you watched?

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Meh. It was okay.

What is the one skill you wish you had?
Sewing. Or will power. Is will power a skill? I give in to my every whim, so I need to develop some sort of skill set to deal with that.

What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Buffy, though I'm starting back up on Dr. Who. I'm a billion years behind the rest of the world, though.

What's your favorite musical instrument?

Guitar, I guess.

What web sites do you always visit when you g
o online?
Livejournal, Jezebel, my e-mail, and the blogs of a couple of friends

What was the last thing you bought?

Shitty Chinese food

If you won 10,000 bucks today, what would you do with it?

Pay off debt (because my life is a thrill a minute), and maybe fix something in my hell-hole of a house.

Favorite time of day?
Night. Like between 11 PM and 2 AM.

What's the last thing that made you happy?
*shrug* I don't know. I read <a href="">this</a> today, and it didn't make me unhappy. There may have even been giggling and audible squeeing at my desk at work. True story.

Do you want to learn another language?

I want to know another language. But I don't really want to put in the effort to learn it. I have a really bad grasp of French--so I if I had to choose, I'd probably try to fix that situation first. And then maybe learn Norwegian, because there's an author I love and only one or two of his books is translated into English.

Five things you can't live without.

Internet; air conditioning (see above about the summer/not summer seasons where I live); Curel hand lotion, Chapstick, and sleeping pills (which sounds bad--but I have ridiculous insomnia, and those pills have been a lifesaver)
