[ mood | cranky ]

I don't know why I'm up this early on my day off, but I am. The Today show is on and I can't believe what this woman is saying. She basically blamed the United States decline as a world power on our weight problems...

....um, wha?

Our decline as a world power is because we can't manage a couple of trillions of dollars, not because our waistbands are expanding. We can always lose weight, but the future is uncertain when it comes to if we can get out of this economic hole that is threatening to swallow us up at any moment.

Rant over.

Okay, so I'm 99.999999999874% sure I'm back to post regularly. It's been tough with school, but now that I'm off for the summer, I don't have the excuse anymore...

Summer has not started the way I had hoped. I wanted to see Star Trek, but nuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, I don't have monies. I am back at work, so my status as only-person-who-hasn't-seen-Star-Trek will be remedied this weekend! I've got a busy weekend coming up! I will definitely post pictures (for anyone who still reads this journal >_>) and maybe some fanfiction.

Things Coming Up:
-Nightwish in Atlanta tonight!
-Supernatural Season Finale!
-Georgia Aquarium with my Mom!
-SHOPPING!!!11!

Zombies and lime flavored popcorn [16 Feb 2009|09:10pm]
[ mood | amused ]

I just finished watching Heroes and, wow, what a great episode. I won't go into detail for those on my flist who haven't seen it yet, but, I gotta say, I've never been much of a Sylar fan (I know, BLASPHEMY!) but I really like the direction his story line is taking. I found myself wishing I could skip Claire's pouting and Nathan's scheming and see more of America's favorite serial killer at his sneakiest. I really hope this show continues its climb back to its former glory.

Also, I've discovered the tasty treat that is Orville Redenbacher's Lime and Salt Popcorn. Soooo good. And I hear it's pretty healthy too ;)

 

So, this is the moment where I rant about school projects and zombies...Collapse )

I have to give an informative speech in my public speaking class  and I want to do it on something interesting and what's more interesting than zombies? I really think the idea will be hard to pitch to my teacher though, since he seems not to really stray from by the book presentations. I thought about either doing an informative speech on how to survive a zombie apocalypse or sybolism in zombie films. The latter seems the likely candidate for him to okay but that causes the problem: What sybolism should I talk about? I thought about comparing it to the alien invasion movies from the 50s but other than that, I've got nothing. Nadda. So if anyone can help me hash out some ideas, I would be much obliged.

Like Poking at a Dead Thing [12 Feb 2009|12:01pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]


So, I know my LJ is pretty much dead, but I was hoping to resurrect it somehow. I am not sure if I just want to start a new account or revamp this one. I've been angelmoogle  for so long, it would be weird to start another, but then again, maybe its time for a change?

I guess I'll decide sometime this weekend what I want to do. For anyone who may happen upon this post, what do you think?

So the end of the world... [10 Sep 2008|01:16pm]

...didn't happen last night. Jeez, I was kinda counting on it so I wouldn't have to read Oedipus at Colonus. Oh, life's little let downs...

And all of you Doctor Who fans out there were waiting to hear the whoosh of the TARDIS, weren't you? LOL, I know I was.

I actually enjoyed the news coverage of CERN and found that the scientists there have an awesome sense of humor, there is an emergency bottle of champagne with instructions on it the start with 1) Don't Panic. Oh, and here is a pretty cool article I found:

Library [07 Jul 2008|10:44pm]
I went to the library and picked up Going Postal by Terry Pratchett and Persepolis by  Marjane Satrapi. I can't wait to read them! I had to order The Road by Cormac McCarthy, though. I hope they get it in soon.

Oh, and I'm almost done with Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill. A retired heavy metal lead-singer being tormented by the ghost of some crazed southern hypnotist is an AWESOME plot.

Quantum Leap Marathon [04 Jul 2008|10:44pm]

I've caught some kind of bug and I'm miserable. My head feels like it is filled with cement. I decided that I needed a doctor. 

Doctor Who couldn't make it, so I gladly settled with Dr. Sam Beckett instead.

Dark Knight News: [03 Jul 2008|11:00pm]
skypiratekella, remember the conversation we had about a certain companion of the Joker and whether or not she would appear in Dark Knight? I have potentially good news under the cut:

Pain in the leg region [02 Jul 2008|11:06pm]
My sister dragged me to the gym today. Oh God, the pain. I made a sweaty embarrassment of myself, as usual, and I felt really stupid the whole time I was attempting to exercise...

...And then something strange happened. I felt good. Really good. I was so happy that I actually managed to tear myself away from my beloved recliner and Quantum Leap marathon and work off some unwanted calories. If my muscles don't go into shock before tomorrow morning, I'll probably go again and repeat the cycle of sweaty, smelly humiliation. I honestly can't wait.

Also, I finally got my taxes back. That took entirely too long. I already know how it will be spent: Lunch, Going Postal, and the rest goes to my sister. I already owe her my first and second born, so I figure I should start paying the cash sum. 

I needz job naow.

DW Quote [24 Jun 2008|02:08pm]
 
Taken from skypiratekella 's journal:


When you see this line on your flist, quote something from Doctor Who.



Cyberman: Daleks, be warned; you have declared war upon the Cybermen.
Dalek Sec: This is not war. This is pest control!
Cyberman: We have five million Cybermen. How many are you?
Dalek Sec: Four.
Cyberman: You would destroy the Cybermen with four Daleks?
Dalek Sec: We would destroy the Cybermen with one Dalek! You are superior in only one respect.
Cyberman: What is that?
Dalek Sec: You are better at dying! 

I think this is from "Doomsday". God, I love the Daleks, I half expected the Dalek Sec to finish with "Your Mom".

Calling All Writer Friends [23 Jun 2008|10:58pm]
I need help. 

When attempting to take on a new writing project, I like to put faces to the supporting characters of a story so it is easier to picture them while I'm writing. So, for one of my "projects", which I have been trying to work out the kinks so I can finally post some of it and some of you will recognize what I'm talking about and laugh because I hardly ever post anything when I say I will, involves an immortal leading an Undead Anonymous group. He plays a pretty big role in the story and I am having trouble sticking with an image of him. Can anyone help me find someone to model him after?

Here are some things to describe him:
He  has dark hair.
He can look somewhere between late 20s-early 40s (I like the happy middle 30s)
He's a snappy dresser, because the 20s was(were?) his favorite era (even though he's from the late 1500s)
Facial hair is optional.

You know, the typical good looking immortal ;)

I have some possibilites under the cut, but if anyone can help, please do!

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.

1. "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay
Come on, you guys! How addicting is that ipod commercial?!

2. "London Bombs" by Eskimo Joe
I just really like it and, good lord, is it sad when you know the story behind it.

3. "Passing Afternoon" by Iron and Wine
Can Iron and Wine do any wrong? Oh, and House fans will recognize this song.

4. "Evil" by Interpol
Honestly, I've been into this song for awhile. Great song, great group.

5. "Jane" by Jefferson Starship
My favorite song. EVER.

6. "Sour Cherry" by The Kills 
Catchy song.

7. "No One's Gonna Love You" by Band of Horses
Melancoly and surprisingly calming.

I tag four people:

Wow, I should be in bed... [07 Jun 2008|10:10pm]
...but I'm too busy watching the vlog brothers. Who are the vlog brothers? Well, they are John and Hank Green, siblings who decided that for a year they would cease contact via text and only communicate over video blogs or telephone. They happen to be made of awesome and this was spawn:  http://www.youtube.com/user/vlogbrothers?ob=4 

Also, you may recognize their names because both have successful writing careers. John is a Young Adult writer (must.read.his.books) and Hank has been featured in Mental Floss and has a website called ecogeek.org 

Um, I've been trying to watch all 303 vlogs and this has proven difficult because it is consuming my life! And should consume yours too...go watch!

I need to contact financial aid tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I need to take out another loan, yeah. Oh and fun gym visit on Tuesday. Wow, I will have to go into details in my next post.

Goodnight.

Oh, and the picspam that I owe all of you will be up eventually, my sister is ransoming the vacation pictures so when I  come up with a gah-dillion (her words, not mine) dollars, she'll send them to me.
