fai_dust: Star Trek; DS9: 7x03 (.back on track)

I have been home since Sunday. I am still feeling crazy, but to the few friends I mentioned my, uh, experimentation with my meds, it was informative. The second night, I actually had Greg a little worried because I was so mellow (and not bouncing off the walls or wanting to spin around every thirty minutes), happy just to watch Andromeda and either doodle or play Solitare.

Also, because I am too ADD to work on the over-due holiday gifts, I have been staring at a story board for one of my own conceps that will never see the light of day, and coming up with 'clever' t-shirt designs for a specific tries-too-hard character. ∴ this lead to me having to check with Google to see if it was "Rule 43" or "Rule 34", and I re-found this; http://www.xkcd.com/305/ Likely most of the internet population has read it before, but it's silly and cute.

PS (another dumb quote); I can't get "All right, you liberal pansy sex fiends! 1940s morality is back and it's going to set you fuckers straight!" out of my head. Which is not abnormal, but what should be at least a little worring is that even as an uptight, margenly homophobic, mock (as in, not from a real comic), Steve Rogers still just seems 'quirky'. (from this mock, which I've rec-ed before and am sure most of you have seen as well.)

"...hi lady. What's my number?"
 
This is the message I sent to my sister, about tow minutes after asking her if she minded if I sent her a text. (I needed her to tell me my cell number. I couldn't find it anywhere.) It is also the reason for her to be pissed at me today. Apparentally, it's creepy, because it sounds like I'm hitting on her. This is the girl who talks about "banging" specific old men (RDA, Jon Stewart, Sam Waterston and Richard Belzer usually), "diddling little Asian children", "jizzing" in her pants if she ever visits Japan and describes having her period in the most graphic ways possible. And these are just the first examples that come to mind.
fai_dust: Battlestar 2003 (comic): issue #00 (battlestar 2003: .adama)
I've had this quote in my head on and off for about a week. Until I looked it up, I could have sworn it was Cain that said it, but whatever. Not that I'm complaining either about having it in my head or about being wrong. It's the most normal thing my brain has produced in too long.
"Let's all sit down and talk about how we feel about martial law."
     ~ Ellen Tigh, (Battlestar Galactica, 2003; 2x04)

the full line (& semi-context) of the quote )

Don't say it; I refuse to admit my brain is connecting this to anything in relivent news.
Also, because I'm actually a little linear today, I am not obsessing on people I know or know of who pull this BS. Linear is nice.
fai_dust: BtVS: 1x12 - Prophecy Girl (.sick)
Yesterday's problem has sorted itself out, pretty much. I can understand people again, but it does take some effort. Luckily (in regards to communicating with insensitive jackasses), I usually respond (and generally speak) so fast that my delay just makes me seem close to average and just a little slow.


CMHC is run by doctors who gave themselves their MD )


I'm going to see my GP today. He listens to me and tries to help.
fai_dust: BtVS: 1x12 - Prophecy Girl (.sick)
Not only was the doctor's visit a waist of three hours, but now I have been afflicted my that weird thing from DS9. I cannot comprehend English. I was watching SGA and all the words are garbled. I can read and write, but not understand spoke words.
 
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

so... yeah

fai_dust: BtVS: 1x12 - Prophecy Girl (.sick)
 
Friday, I was actually blind for a large part of the day due to weird images right in my direct line of sight and thick, black, oily outlines that took up everything but my peripheral vision. Not fun. I did, however, get most of my fanfic that was on my LJ moved to the DW comm. Yay.
 
Still feel like shit, though, and I'm still seeing things. I do have an appointment with CMHC (or whatever the hell they're calling it now), so maybe something can be done about it sooner then my other medical issues.
 
Spent the weekend running errends, which is not fun at any time, but even worse when there's things going on that aren't real but seem like it.
 
Also, I feel all foggy-brained today. Yuck.

o-kay...

fai_dust: Eureka: 2x03 - Unpredictable (.dumb)

Most pointless interview ever; http://cosmic-girl.com/?p=802
It's an interview with Colin Ferguson, but you don't have to watch anything he's in to it. Hell, you could only watch Fox News for all the "context" of it.
fai_dust: BtVS: 5x15 - I Was Made to Love You (.the hell)
(still at home, still seeing things, going a little extra crazy because I am at home)

1. "The first thing the Warren Commission found is that it is easier to reach a predetermined decision if you overlook pesky distractions. These include unreliable witnesses who might testify to things that don't fit in with your theory, physical evidence that hasn't been planted medical evidence that hasn't been altered, Mafia co-conspirators who haven't been rubbed out yet, et cetera." [UFOs, JFK, and Elvis by Richard Belzer (pg.33)]
It is the shit. Awesome, funny, cynical and in no way meant to be taken compleatly serously. More info here.
.
2. While looking for a quote from a children's book (which I still haven't found), found this site and ended up making a profile. Yay books!
- I haven't decided if I'm going to add series, because it would take a while to find 8-16 books per series, or TV-related books (BtVS, Star Trek, ect.)
.
3. A while ago, my grandmother started to read "cowboy books", most of which she buys at the drugstore. A few months ago, I realized that was code for "porn, set in the wild west".
.
4. From grade 11 'university-level' chemistry: "Dylan and Harper, ionic, MX (polar)". Somehow, this is a way to remember chemical bond types. It was expanded to include stuff for my college Organic Chemistry class, which may be rembled about later, when I find the post-it and feel like doing so at the same time I remember I wanted to.
.
5. "Calm down?! I am wearing sunglasses at night! You know who does that? No-talent douchebags." I don't follow Supernatural, it just got too dark and continuity-based for a show that didn't start out as either. But I remember my sister watching it ages ago when I was in the room and every time I remember this line, it sends me into giggles. Last year, I told a classmate about it (after class) and a guy (an adult in the class) overheard me and yelled "Are you dissin' H?", really offended. Now, I have my own obsessions, but really, I never actually said who Dean (and by extention, I) was talking about, so that's really rather sad.
.
6. ...uh, actually this one is quazi-related to #5, at least in my own brain... "...Beyond the series, Bono is especially notable for being an Irish guy on a sci-fi TV show not played by Colm Meaney." Because it's very true and while Colm Meaney is awesome, so is Mark Sheppard. (The quote is from a page that used to be on Wiki Frakr, but, along with most of their best pages, broke, and had to be retrived from the web.archive site here.
.
7. At least once a week, when I get serious-brain, I think about making a "happy-thoughts" comm (yes, I just made that up) where a weekly challange is something like "post an image of a cute animal" or "a quote related to (x)", usually non-fandom specific and no upsetting shit allowed. Then I think, what would be the point? I mean, I could probably wrangle a few friends into co-mod-ing it with me, but would anyone other then me actually get anything out of it?
.
8. I fould my cell phone, which I lost at least six months ago, a few days ago! I knew it was somewhere in my room, but I couldn't find the damn thing until I was looking for the power coard to my extrenal hard drive. Which I still have to find, but whatever.
.
9. I miss The Bridge. I know there are a bunch of cop shows out there and most have a very similar concept, but this was one of the few that didn't. Also, it gave a different perspective to the police force. Granted, it wasn't always a positive one, but that's how life is. I mean, I respect and am greatful for the work the police do, but there are always going to be people who mess up, are stupid, and even corrupt, no matter what job they do. And the acting was really good, too.
.
10. "This is the New York that I love-- the one you never see on a postcard." / "Now, there's an untapped market; tranny hooker postcards." Is 'tranny' ('trannie'?) an offensive term? I've heard people say it is (well, read people say so, mostly on S-D), but usually, when I hear the actual term used, it's mostly just as a lazy way of saying transsexual.
(...and by the way, Blue Bloods is awesome. Watch it!)
.
11. Why is it that LJ & DW mood images have 'drunk' as an unhappy face but 'crazy' as a good one?
. .
fai_dust: Battlestar 2003: miniseries (.devil's advocate)
Okay, before I go into what could become a full-blown rant, I want to say that I fully believe in free speech, okay? As long as you are not insighting violence or spouting slanderous (/liable? which is verbal? but both apply here) BS which you know is BS, then I believe everyone has the right to their opinion, no matter how imbicillic, horrible or brain-dead it is.
- that being said, if you ever want to witness something that may cause question to that right, you're welcome to come to one of my fraternal family gatherings.
warning: I really, really mean no offence by this, but it's hard to talk about racial (or other) issues without coming out sounding racist unless the person is of a ethnic minority, so I apologise just in case it sounds like it.
. . . + when I start talking about portrayals and good & bad ways of showing subjects of bias, I'm talking about the media and not in life.


----Things we should have to hear but suck none the less (or, 'Reasons why Studio 60 was awesome and NBC is run by morons')
The fact is, bigotry exists and likely always will to some extent, no matter how far we get. )
.
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x02 - Water (.breakdown)

I'm having hallucinations, this time worse then anything I can remember that wasn't caused by a week of no sleep. So I couldn't go to school today. Also, I missed Thursday because I couldn't walk. This is not good.

Lots of weird shit going on, none of it staying in my head long enough to post. And my minset has been just this side of too serious to be fully happy. Yuck.

So to go with my mindset (and because I've run out of funny/light hearted drama with silly banter, not to mention attempting to shake a rather peculiar image from my crazy-brain), I present you quotes from Law and Order 6x23, because even though the whole episode is depressing on every level, it's got that whole moral-delema from both perspectives that caused so much contraversy and a lot of character bulding. blah,blah[mini rant/review of ep],blah,blah )
.
You can quit the profession, Claire. You just can't quit the human race. )
 
And now for two other TV related bitching points;
- Big Bang Theory; did anyone else get the impression that whole creepy Raj fantasizing about the squeeky girl was an excuese to get away with the dance sequance?
- Mr. Sunshine; I liked the pilot, although it felt like Matthew Perry took all my favorite aspects of his character in Studio 60 and used them in this. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It was cute. And if it manages to stay the way it was set up, it won't make it past a full season. Suck is the way of comedy with quazi non-PC humor.
fai_dust: Stargate Atlantis: 2x04 - Duet (.not sure)

Just thought I'd share: my puppy is a suck and eyeinng me like he's starving. Also, cold/soggy french-fries with mayo are not nearly as good as hot/crisp fries with mayo. I have had to defaut back to ketchup because I'm too impatient to properly reheat them in the oven.

edit: also, how weird is it that I had to edit 'crisps' to 'french-fries' and 'far too impatient' to just 'too impatient'? Evidentally, I think I'm English. And while, yes, Canadian, I'm still from North America, and should not be thinking in those words. Maybe it's to compensate for the fact that when I get absolutely smashed I sound like I'm from the Southern States?
PS; Liz; Yes, to maintain this lovely buzz (at 2:30AM, 3h after leaving your place), I am still drinking on my own. Forgive me, but I am feeling better then I have in almost a month and don't want to loose it until I absolutely have to. But I'm still working on the smaller half-full bottle of Wyborona vodka I mentioed I'd intended to bring, not that giant bottle of Smirnoff I bought (in Dec.) to share with you.
 
edit(2): I coose to believe that the reason (re; subject) is because most of my f-list is in North America and therefor likely asleep and the other is in Austraila and doing work things (Hi, Kimberly!). Also, I must be drunker then I thought, because I should not have been stumbling when I too my dog out to go pee; also I'm craving meat (well, actually, McCrap burgers, so I'm not entirely sure that counts. And even if it does, I blame it on watching 1x12 of Eureka seven hours ago). Serously guys, you're missing out on some batshit crazy querys.
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x04 - Act Of Contrition (.wish me luck)

Just back from dinner/drining at a friends (+TV; Eureka 1x12 & Supernatural 1x03 [assuming the pilot counts as one ep]) so I am a little tipsy.
    - also, home safe, Liz. Sorry I couldn't call; I can't find the bloody phone, but I did send you an email, so don't worry.
 
Life Update: Lately, by the end of class and on weekends, I've been utterly exausted and while that's no excuese, I am sorry for flaking. If anyone needs to contact me, I've created a temp. email address so I can avoid the terror that is my inbox; eccentricavoidance@onlytoexcess.org
 
I am enjoying school for the most part, but it's taking a lot out of me. I will make all the posts I have noted in my notebook eventually (if I had any sort of cell phone, I could concider upgrading to a smart phone (?) just so I could use the LJ app like [personal profile] colls).
 
PS; Dragon; Naturally Speaking is a pain in the ass. I've tried using it multipul times to get the very late holiday fics types and it gets, like, one of every five or six words correct. Phhhhhhhh
 
edit: speaking of drinking, refer to here (LJ) or here (DW)  ^_^
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x06 - Litmus (.pessimistic)

Holy... Well, that flu thing I mentioned? Has moved into my chest and become something else. But since I finally couldn't justify it anymore, I decided to tackle my inbox. Big mistake; over 3000 unread emails. Now, granted, at least half are bound to be LJ alerts about comms I "track", but still, it's overwealming. I'm sorry if you're waiting on me. I'll do the best I can.

explination for the RENT post: when I get sick for a streach of time, I get pathetic and that song either gets me off my ass or really cranky. Or at least, it always has until two days ago. It didn't seem to do much then, but I chalk that up to what has probably become a lung infection.

health&home bitching )
fai_dust: Questionable Content #1696 (.sick: sleepless)

I'm all bleghy now. My fault, when I don't sleep, my mood is impressionable and I just watched the Angel episode "A Hole in the World".
Also, still don't want to go out tonight, but I'm going to because Dee's, uh, going to NY tomorrow so I'll be a trooper. And Liz at least doubly so, because she's going for me.
 
Umm... made a burried at the bottom post collecting the random quotes I've used, mostly for my own amusement but you can see it here; http://fai-dust.dreamwidth.org/20016.html  and  http://fai-dust.livejournal.com/70662.html 

Ooh! And over the last little while, I've added new icons to my DW account. All are here, but I'm mainly mentioning it because of the Hawaii 5-0 ones (the first two below), I really like stairing at the one of Heightmeyer (center) (I really wish she had been in more episodes of SGA) and the ones of Ro & Ro/Yar from the Star Trek TNG comic "The Last Generation" (last two)
    
 
And I still can't remember what I had origonally planned to do when I sat down almost 4 hours ago. It's really starting to bug me.
 
Edit: Oh, and I created a handful of new tags for my journal(s) with silly names, including one Eureka reference. Now the fun part; going back through all my old entries and adding them. ...why do I do this to myself?
fai_dust: marvel comics: XFactorIII - issue #014 (.unimpressed)

warning: this was written on 4h of sleep in 48h and may be unorganized, incoherent or totally bug-nuts. Cool?
um... something or everything about what I did since I woke up at fuckAM until now )
At least a month ago, back while I was first having LJ exasperation, I bought a pre-paid MasterCard to buy a paid account on DreamWidth. Sounds simple, doesn't it? It's never that easy.
**1** Problems with DW's server accepting cards without more then a name.
    - I tried on two computers other then my own as well, then contacted MC to see if it was on my end some other way; they said it wasn't
So I tried to use it through PayPal...
**2** ...Which also would't take it
    - something to do with their confermation process involving taking two tiny amounts, letting it process without being rejected, then refunding the money; the problem with that is the card doesn't allow for reloading, because they make that much more money that way (and serously, how greedy can they get? They already charge $30 for a $25 card!)
so I ended up having to transfer money from my bank account to PayPal then pay DW (who were great about it, by the way), which I'm still not really comfortable with, but by that point I was obligated to. This is because after requesting help with the first problem, the awesome staff (who replied the same day!) not only did everything they could to try to figure it out, but the woman asisting me actually gave me a free week and when after that time it still hadn't been sorted, she gave me the points/tokens in advance and let me pay her back once the transfer from my bank finally cleared!

Anyways, I still have the damn pre-paid card with $22.55 CAD on it...
**3** There was some charge that was either the first test-charge from PayPal or MC's "you didn't use this up within the first 10 seconds? Sucker!" charge which I gather is monthly
...so I tried to renew my paid account on LJ last week, but it wouldn't take.
**4** When I tried to check out, it said something about trying to access an account I don't have the right to access. I wouldn't be suprised if this one is the fault of my laptop.

UGH!

fai_dust: marvel comics: NewWarriorsIV - issue #05 (.stay positive)

Okay, technically I've been home since the thirtith, but I had a terrible flight home (including the first flight being delayed so that the connecting flight was missed [leading to an extra 5-6h, making the entire thing 16+h] and a freaky hallucination of creepy, evil bugs attacking me [I wasn't so far gone that I didn't realiz that it was a hallucination, thank God. I just locked my jaw and freaked out internally] and from, like, the next morning until now, I felt like I had the flu.

-- bzzz! I am feeling very giggle!spaz-y right now with post-sickness endorphins. It is a good feeling!--

fai_dust: marvel comics: NewWarriorsIV - issue #05 (.stay positive)

I've been feeling very crappy the last few days; sorry for no posts. However, I must say, one major cool factor to being fdown here is that (obviously) I'm regestering as having a US IP address so I can watch Daily Show clips to my hearts content. Lewis Black is totally bug-nuts love. Also, Wanda Sykes kicks ass and if I were to ever get an old-man crush (which, eww, but if the Earth rotated backwards and I liked men), it would be on Richard Belzer, because, seriously, there are no words. Ooh, and this Melissa Ethridge clip - I know the whole gay marrage thing has been gone over to death, but she's, like, my favorite artest and it's funny.
   EDIT: Warning; if you decide to follow this link and the pre-clip add is for Jose Cuervo and causes the page to darken, hit mute! The sound is way louder than the clip and will cause you shock and pain. It's like they're giving you a small sample of the potential hangover their product contains!
    Edit(2): (another gay-rights thing, sorry) Lewis Black on Prop 8 (& misc. props); http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-november-4-2004/back-in-black---election-results - for rome reason, this reminds me of [personal profile] lilpocketninja . Probably because of the shit survay she had in her class a while back.
  
Liz: I scored another gigantic bottle of vodka for less then $24! Shall we see how much of a dent we can make in it some weekend evening?

I am working on getting everyone's gifts done ASAP; it won't be before Christmas, but hopefully mostly before New Years. Sorry guys.
