it seemed more humorous at one in the morning

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

This is the month when I’m supposed to write my self-evaluation for work — it’s part of my annual review, which has always been sort of a hit or miss thing at this job. Since I wasn’t at all sure I’d receive any feedback from my boss, I figured I’d ask for feedback from my […]

Movie Review: xXx

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

There’s a pattern to my tv/movie choices, okay? Right now there’s a lot of uncertainty in my life — on the news, at my job — and so I like my movies to be predictable. No surprises. Entertaining, if possible. Which is how, somehow, I ended up watching Vin Diesel in xXx via netflix last […]

fic rec: I read for the films!

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Somehow, I’ve gotten hooked on this ridiculous Avengers team-up movie arc thingey (thingie? *is* there even a correct spelling for a made-up word?) that Marvel is doing. Because it’s pretty clever, really, even though I still think Edward Norton was a really good Hulk. But the Captain America film… I have this thing, about prequels. […]

sometimes my job is…

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Sometimes my job means I get to stay up till one in the morning talking to starandrea about *science* and figuring out when you should panic now and when you should wait until later to panic. That was last night, and then today I got to spend nearly three hours of my work day on […]

my favorite story

::draws hearts and rainbows around this story:: Musica Instrumentalis, by starandrea Author Summary: “Gabriel storms heaven, puts Sam to sleep, and winds up pregnant, none of it in the traditional manner. In the meantime, Lucifer helps Samael, Samael doesn’t help Anna, and the children decide they’re done with watching.” Quote: “New plan,” Gabriel said. “I’m […]

useful links

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

I am the first to admit that my google-fu is of the novice level. Pre-novice, if that’s available. But occasionally, I want to find information on the internet that’s just not available on wikipedia. For news: I was recently introduced to Al Jazeera English, which I saw linked somewhere as a recommended resource for Japan […]

“this is going on the internet”

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

It’s Saturday, right? One of my days off. There are certain things I’m willing to be disturbed for by my workplace on my days off, and they are as follows: 1. The store is on fire. 2. Someone’s died. That’s really it. So you can imagine my consternation when work called me this morning. I […]

Movie Review: Stormbreaker

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

(Or, as they called it in the US, “Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker. That seemed long.) Explanation: Okay, there was a reason why this ended up in my dvd player. After we watched I Am Number Four, I wiki’d the movie [and through a series of events that doesn’t need exploring at this juncture] and found […]
