I cleaned out my closet today, which led to the cleaning of other parts of my room in a fit of unreasonable productivity. Dust flew! Empty Nutella containers were discovered! Towering stacks of books toppled and were re-built!

Three hours later, it all looks exactly the same as it did before, except that slightly different parts of the floor are now visible. XD

I keep meaning to post! I have things to say! But really all I can say right now is thank goodness my Macbook has an ethernet port because wireless is so not happening right now. Old skool!!1!

...

One of these days I will watch all the episodes of The World That They Live In in a row in the order that God and the production team intended.

...Nope, this is not that day.

Aaaaaand now I need to sleep so that I can function at my super fun non-stressful job in the morning. Wooo!

LET'S TALK ABOUT SOME BOOKS!

Or graphic novels, actually, since at the logicoemotional blackmail urging of my co-workers, I’ve also been reading some of them lately!

Vampires and starlets and geniuses, oh my! )

What are your favorite graphic novels? Read anything good (or bad!) lately?

I'm at the new JetBlue wing of JFK. It’s pretty great. I’m sitting here brainstorming on my laptop, sipping on a smoothie, updating LJ, feeling pretty great. I love JFK, you guys.

I love airports. I have had no sleep. [livejournal.com profile] cadragongirl, the cookies are in the freezer. Uh, just because. It seems like all my efforts to make cookies for my co-workers are being thwarted lately. Last night I bought sugar and chocolate chips but not butter or vanilla. Sigh.

The 4th was wonderful--opening at work, then three (count 'em, three) get-togethers. Apparently I'm popular like that? Ahahahaha.

I stuck around just long enough to eat my first tofurkey (whyyyyy) hot dog (edible, especially with ketchup) and to sample the desserts (most important) and then hi-tailed it out to Kendall Square and after some navigation fail managed to find everybody right by the river. The fireworks were magnificent as always--I forgot nearly everything else, as always, and stared (probably open-mouthed) in wonder. I do so enjoy the 1812 Overture punctuated by spouts of fire.

We walked home afterward. I think I gave myself shin splints. Oops. Note to self: don’t walk long distances in flip-flops. Which is of course why I’m wearing them right now. At the airport. Oh well.

Gotta go. Just get up and go~/ The show must go on~

No really, it's a Saga. But this installment is over, and I am so excited to be actually getting a few hours of sleep tonight before my opening shift. Oh my God, I really am a sleep-deprived twentysomething working a low-paying job many hours a week to support my literary aspirations. How did this happen?!?!?! MY LIFE, YOU GUYS.

My life is basically a cross between orz and XD, with a lot of facepalm thrown in.

This is why I'm going to wind up being a copyeditor, which has got to be pretty much the only publishing job worse than being an editor.

I should probably mention that I really, really want to be an editor.

FML.

So last week in my party-induced drunken haze I agreed to go contra dancing the next day.

Now, ever since Boston Harbor and Fiddleheads: The Next Generation and BCMFest-type things, I’ve been to a few ceili/ceilidhs and done pretty okay. As long as things are explained and rehearsed slowly, I can manage and even enjoy it. Ceilidh dancing is all about having a good time and rocking out. Ceilidh nobody really minds if you screw up, not all that much anyway.

Contra minds. )

Thank you to everybody who suggested holiday music last time! I've been having fun listening to all kinds of stuff, discovering some things, and rediscovering others. For example, I'd heard The Holly and the Ivy before, but the other day these lines floored me:

The rising of the sun
The running of the deer


I just.

;alksdjf;alskjdfal;skdjfa;lskdjfas;lkdjfas;ldkjfa;lskjdfa;

In Gainful Employment news, last Saturday was the most insane day I have ever seen. It’s like people decided Black Friday was for the mall, and then Saturday was STORM THE BOOK STORE DAY. It was also, apparently, Teh Day of Teh Gay )

I’m trying to put together a holiday playlist for the bookstore, which is supposed to involve 60-70% normal music and 30-40% holiday. I should probably note at this point that I hate holiday pop music. As I scroll through my iTunes, pretty much all I have are a few Johnnys songs, a bunch of nasal traditional Celtic stuff, the Love, Actually soundtrack, and Draco & the Malfoys’ version of All I Want for Christmas.

All I want, it turns out, is a Great Big Sea holiday album. PLEASE, GUYS?

I mean, it would probably be all about drinking and partying and being stranded on an ice floe with both your legs chopped off while your sweetheart runs off with a Yankee sailor, but you know. IT WOULD STILL BE AWESOME.
