I officially hate the post office at my school.


Though it's gotten better by switching all the package handling to the UPS Store, which is open longer AND on Saturday, the problem with the speed at which they get package slips out hasn't improved.


Madre sent out a package with one of my birthday presents (I say one because the birthday present I asked for, the jersey, is gonna take some time still) on Thursday morning. She sent it priority mail and they told her it would be here in two days. For NORMAL places, that would mean Saturday.


I check about an hour ago (because it wasn't there Saturday, not that I expected that) and it STILL wasn't there. *sigh*


To put things in perspective, I get packages from Connecticut at home in Louisiana in two days time...meaning one day in between shipping and receiving. From Louisiana to Florida shouldn't take longer.


I'll be checking again after my last two classes today. Not there by then, I'll move on from annoyed to pissed. *angry eyes*

Why is it when I finally get up on my soapbox about something, on the more controversial end of the spectrum, I'm placed in a category with all the jackasses that like to make a fool of themselves???


Even when I make myself COMPLETELY clear that I know i don't have all the facts and that what I'm saying is just OPINION based on what I'VE seen, people still call me out for being offensive and that 'i don't know what I'm talking about.'


I'm not a rude person - I'm an honest person. Still, I try and be RESPECTFUL to all involved (unless you push me to my breaking point - and I have a very high, nigh unreachable breaking point in most circumstances). Yet I'm pegged as being bitchy (not that I'm not a bitch - I am. I'm just...a nice bitch. *snirk*) and ignorant.


It sucks, sometimes, to have an opinion.

dannysgirlsg1: (Danny - Like My Books)
So here's things...


~ Have started a new book (well, started it last week, but that's neither here nor there). If you couldn't tell from the subject line, it's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. And I'm absolutely loving it! I'm not quite halfway through it yet (doing stuff for French class takes up a lot of free time). It was mostly the premise and cover that caught my attention since I've never read the original (not really a big Jane Austen fan), and I'm very satisfied by what I'm getting from it. The one downside is it makes me want to slaughter some zombies myself in L4D2, but I can't do that until Smurf gets a hold of all the stuff to upgrade Lord Danny so the game is actually...ya know...playable on him! Otherwise, the book is fantastic.


~ HOE-MG, how much do I love Gibbs and Tony?!?! Like for seriously, they are just amazing. It was that very Jack/Daniel familiarness about them that made me fall in love with the show to begin with and that's what we got in tonight's episode. *sigh* Such love for them, Tony/Ziva, and the show as a whole! Sad there's no new episode next week (but also glad that SYTYCD is over right now so I can watch the episodes when they premiere).


~ I really hope the NHL big wigs don't frell up and do what's right in the whole Burrows debacle that came out of last night's game. I'm not going to get into much detail about it here, but lets just say HOPEFULLY the bad ref calls that have been going on for some time now will be taken care of. Last night it was just beyond ridiculous. If anyone is interested on reading up on what I'm talking about, you can find three different posts about it HERE, HERE, and HERE. I'm taking the side of Burrows, of course. Biased as a Canucks fan aside, fans and those connected to the NHL all over have (for the most part) been siding the same. When even the broadcasters for the WINNING TEAM (b/c the Canucks did NOT win the game last night - mostly because of those BAD calls) say it was the worst refereed game they had seen, you know something hinky is going on. So the NHL is deciding on it now. We'll see how it goes.


Alrighty, I have a little bit of French work to get done. *sigh* Back to the school-time grind. ;P


~Pip


P.S.: You know it's bad when I, with the house I live in, can't concentrate on what I'm trying to post because a roommate is being SO FUCKING LOUD! My door was already closed so I couldn't just slam my door or something like that. I had to put my headphones on and turn on music - ridiculous.

P.S. (squared): *points to song* SUCH a DV song! That is all.

Okay, I am NEVER watching At World's End on ABC EVER AGAIN!!


It was all cut to hell and some of it was very important stuff - the whole scene between Tia Dalma and Davy Jones wasn't there, they cut out where Bill says to Will that the Dutchman has a purpose again, and the stuff with Gibbs and Jack in Tortuga after Barbossa steals the Pearl (again). I didn't catch all of the movie, so there's NO TELLING how much was really cut out.


Horribly pathetic and just...pissed me off. Did they think we wouldn't notice ALL of that was cut out??


GAH!

Now you guys know (or at least SHOULD know) how much I love archaeology...if I didn't love it so much, there probably wouldn't have been any interest in SG-1 and it definitely wouldn't be my chosen career path...


Still, I don't love it sooo much that I love studying for an archaeology exam. You think something like this would be easy and enjoyable, and yet...it's not. I think I had more fun last year cramming all that info in about primates and human behavior for the physical anthro class than I am having right now trying to get all this info for my archaeo. test.


In all honesty, it's NOT the information I'm studying...actually, I'm finding it all very fascinating (as should be expected). Especially b/c this test (which, even though it technically falls on a finals week day, it's just a regular exam - with on exception) focuses on the Americas, and Teotihuacan is one of the sites focused on. So I can make Crystal Skull/City of the Gods references which help me somewhat.


It's more ALL the information I'm being forced to remember. He gave us a study guide, which has all the usual test stuff plus two essay questions (this is that once exception I mentioned). He also informed us he's only picking ONE of the prompts, and we won't know which one it is until we take the test. So we have to study ALL the information anyways. It's pointless - an overabundance of information can be just as dangerous as having too little information. AND he wants details, such as specific names and dates. I understand this is archaeology and dates and names ARE important. Still, can we REALLY be expected to remember the dates and names from EVERY period/site we've learned in the class?? Even the prof himself can only tell us specifically when he was his notes/slides in front of him - seems a bit hypocritical to me!


*phew* Okay, that was my rant for this year's finals week. Last year, it was about 7:30 AM exams (thankfully have NONE this semester). This year, it's about the format of the tests.


~Pip


P.S. - So not sure how many know this, but last year at ChiCon, Michael apologized for being my inspiration to be an archaeologist (jokingly, of course...I think...or not! XP). Well, at the time, I laughed and it was all good fun. Now?? I ACCEPT THAT DAMN APOLOGY! XP

Just a few things...


- Am back at school. It doesn't suck so much coming back to Ragans and my own room as it did heading back to Kellum the past to years to a shared room. I still wish I didn't have to be here, though. Think it's ridiculous to have to come back for two weeks. They should just start the semester two weeks earlier in August, and let us have off from Turkey Day until New Year's.


- Was going to post these thoughts before the twit-post came up, but I was reading about MLK, Malcolm X, and The Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s. I have my third in-class essay tomorrow on this topic (though idk why I'm putting so much hard work into it - the woman is one of the harshest graders I've come across. Got a B- on the last essay...ME, a B-! WTF is that??). I wanted to get a good portion of the way through it tonight. I have like 105 pages to go. SHOULD be able to get it knocked out before the class tomorrow. Either way, I think I've built up enough knowledge on the subject to give another better than B- essay. I just have such a problem reading non-fiction (yes, issue for a history major), especially when it's not reading selected by choice.


- My "good" knee has been hurting a lot lately. I say "good" b/c this was supposedly the one that DIDN'T sustain any kind of damage when I got hit by the car way back when. And yet, I get more problems from it on a regular basis than I do from the 'bad' one. Maybe sleeping in a bed for more than 4 hours tonight will help. I hope it does. Walking to class with a knee in pain is never a fun thing.


That's all I've got for now...off to watch more funny L4D vids on the Youtubez!


~Pip

P.S. - I'm exhausted...thus the prerequisite post-road trip exhaustion icon comes out.

So, here's how things have been going:

~ STAR TREK!! I HAZ IT!!!! XD XD XD


~ HOE-MG, I have never loved a super hero more in my LIFE. For serious wowsers.


~ What made my day: Guy working at a kiosk in the mall was listening to Defying Gravity from Glee on his laptop as we walked by. HOE-MG, you are my new favorite gay man, random kiosk dude! XD


~ I sparkled like Vampire today. Tested out the 'products' available in Hot Topic..which included body shimmer and glittering scented body mist (OF COURSE they have these - all the twitards would go batshit wonko over being able to SPARKLE like vampire). Now I'm a big fan of glitter. Have loved it long before 'sparkling' adopted such a negative connotation. And the stuff (at least the body shimmer - the scented crap smelled so disgustingly sickeningly sweet. See what they did there??) did give a nice shimmer effect. BUT NOT FOR $18.50. Holy fucking brain failure, batman Hawkman! (Oh yes, I went there. No other super hero exists anymore. See, this is what him playing these parts does. *nods*). You can get body shimmer in the bargain bins at Walmart for like $1. Twitards are crazy insane...

...And on the same Hot Topic note, WHY do the guys get all the COOL shirts?!? Angry Beavers, Reptar, Ahhh! Real Monsters? What do the girls get?? A Jennifer's Body shirt and TWILIGHT. Fail...epic, epic fail.


~ Saw the most beautiful cat today in the pet store by Best Buy. He was so sweet and loveable. His name was Donte, and the adoption fee was....wait for it...$25. O.o Dammit, if I didn't like in a dorm! He would sooo be home with me now. Such an adorkable little cat.


~ Finally got to work on my assignment for the [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange . I was worried about the prompts speaking to me and running out of time, but I got a good portion worked on last night. Feeling a little better about it now.


~ 5 DAYS UNTIL I GO HOME!!!!!


~Pip

P.S. - In Canucks withdrawal. The last game was played on Saturday (and they KICKED ASS). The next one isn't until Friday night (which means I'll be missing the Back to the Future triple feature at the SLC). Five days is a long stretch in hockey time and it SUCKS. And, to make it worse, was looking at some hockey magazines today and they had full page pics of some of my fav players. But I couldn't justify paying $8 for a magazine JUST for one pic. *sigh*

P.S. (squared) - NOOOOOO, NOT THE EGGOS! WHHHHHHHYCOME?! *wails*

So I just got back from seeing Angels & Demons at the SLC...


...Yeah, to say I'm disappointed is an understatement! I'm just...idk how to describe it.


See, I can usually go into a movie like this objectively. I understand there will be differences between film and novel and try to think of them as two separate entities.


But coming off of The Da Vinci Code, I had HIGH expectations for this movie. Ron Howard was pretty damn true to the Da Vinci Code book, so I figured he'd do the same with Angels & Demons.


WOWSERS...yeah...nevermind.


They basically ass-raped one of my favorite books.

I've started considering just having a little notebook with me at all times so when I hear good quotes for subject lines, I'll have a nice collection to go off of. LoL!

Alrighty - I think that's it for now. I need to go wash my dishes (exciting, huh?) and then possibly study. I kinda know I'll end up NOT studying, but I'm gonna TRY to at least! XP

P.S. - October is my LEAST favorite month on SyFail. SG-1 is showing a total of FIVE times all month - all of them in the late slot on friday nights. I'm sorry, but it's really NOT necessary to show horror movies ALL through the month of October. The last week, sure. But not for 31 fucking days! GRR!

Dear [livejournal.com profile] taraleesg1 ,

Your birthday fic, though just getting out onto Word, is already driving me insane. I have been pondering it for several nights now. I have the idea all worked out...but of course the dialog won't come as nicely as I have it all set out in my head.


I blame you for this. I am writing what I know you've been wanting to read for a while now.  Driving myself mad ALL because of you.


I am crazy because of you. I lay all this blame on YOOOOOOOU!


Your very (insane) B.F.F
