Today I...

- Played Skyrim
- Read Chapters 29 and 30 of TBSOL
- Almost rejoined WoW but was cockblocked by Blizz who had suspended/locked my account for no reason. Silly Blizz.
- Watched two episodes of My Little Pony with Ingrid on YouTube and was greatly entertained when she searched for My Little Pony fan fiction and found pony BDSM and backed away horrified.
- Subscribed to Felicia Day's new YouTube channel Geek & Sundry. Watched the Table Top episode with Wil Wheaton - loved it. I so want to gather some friends and play geeky table top games now.
- Booked mah tickets for The Avengers movie which is being released here on April the 25th, weeks earlier than in the US. WE GET SOMETHING EARLY FOR ONCE YAY.

So excited about The Avengers. I'm already pre-shipping Captain America and Thor. I think they'll hit it off.

CA: "Hey, god of Thunder, I bet your hammer can't dent my shield."
T: "Scrawny little man, my hammer will make you WEEP."
Passionate gay sexin ensues.

[2:00:40 PM] Lish: you're such a lesbian
[2:01:46 PM] Ingrid: Maybe. I am thinking I'm going to identify as hetero from now on. A hetero who really digs women and likes to sleep with/marry them.
[2:02:19 PM] Lish: i can totes see that
[2:02:22 PM] Lish: if i squint
[2:02:25 PM] Lish: and like
[2:02:26 PM] Lish: smoke 30kg of weed first
[2:02:37 PM] Lish: and possibly wear 3d glasses
[2:02:39 PM] Lish: i can see you as a hetero

[6:33:59 PM] Ingrid: Yeah you're gonna be losing sleep for the foreseeable future, I'm afraid. It's like LDR101. Eventually in your sleepy-madness you'll finally lose your mind, and go "FUCK THIS SHIT I AM MOVING TO EUROPE" and then you do.
[6:34:07 PM] Ingrid: NOT that I know anything about that

[5:11:04 PM] Ingrid: It's really tiny though. Like I felt bad for it cause it struggled so hard to screw things
[5:11:36 PM] Lish: roflmao
[5:11:47 PM] Lish: are we still talking about powertools or are we talking about your penis?
[5:11:54 PM] Ingrid: I am laughing so hard right now
lishesquex: (Rachel Sienna - laughing)
[1:12:15 AM] Ingrid says: I never comment on blog posts .. so this is a big deal for me
[1:12:19 AM] Lish says: yes
[1:12:31 AM] Lish says: you are putting yourself OUT THERE
[1:13:50 AM] Ingrid says: I spurted all my deeper feelings into that comment box
[1:14:08 AM] Ingrid says: So we'll be BFFs in no time
[1:14:17 AM] Lish says: i'm sure she'll appreciate that you spurted into her box
[1:14:20 AM] Ingrid says: roflmao
[1:14:25 AM] Lish says: lmao
[1:14:31 AM] Lish says: i didn't even realise what i typed
[1:14:39 AM] Ingrid says: hahahahaha

So I sent off three of my poems to banQuetpress for their 2012 anthology.  I'm not sure if they'll consider my submissions because they seem to be focusing on erotica in 2012 and my poems tend to be about love and rainbows and ~*~feelings~*~.  Worth a shot though.

Had to write an author biography, which I find ridiculously hard because I neither consider myself an author nor important enough to rate a biography.  But here was Ingrid's answer to my dilemma:

Lilian is a teacher by day, dominatrix by night. She enjoys selling both her body and her crotchless granny panties on the Internet. When she's not teaching English, or hosting Paint & Pain Panty Parties, she enjoys writing poetry about unrequited love. She lives in Melbourne with her parents, who still yell at her to keep both her music and her moaning down.

This is what I actually wrote:

Lilian was born in China but grew up in Melbourne. She is an English and History teacher by day and a reclusive blogger/gamer/crazy cat lady by night. She likes reading fan fiction, talking about Vikings, and writing about unrequited Sapphic love. Often, she dreams of doing bigger things, such as moving to Norway to write poetry by the fjords.

In other news, I watched Thor today and loved it. Review under cut - no spoilers )

I also watched Misconceptions (2008) courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] lysachan. I really enjoyed it, even though it was pretty corny. I thought it was a really sweet movie. It helped that A.J. Cook was adorable.

I'm back in my hotel room after two very special days in Paris.

I'm not going to do a full entry about it because that would take days, so here's the short version:

I watched the sun rise over a misty French countryside from a tiny train carriage. I got flashed by a Parisian duck outside a bra bar, then Ingrid fisted a gargoyle, and Karine instructed us on pornographic medieval imagery after we saw a tapestry of a woman who was "giving it to the unicorn". I said oh hai to the universe inside the Sacre Coeur.

I remarked on how the white buildings in Paris reminded me of Minas Tirith seventeen times and pondered mortality. I ate a butt pastry. It was pretending to be a palm tree, but it didn't fool me. I lay on the most perfect grass ever and looked up at a perfect blue sky. I took a picture of the Eiffel tower between my legs and giggled half to death. I saw a hundred rainbows in the Louvre. All the way.

Day 04 → Your favourite book

Of course, this one has to go to The Blind Side of Love by Ingrid Diaz.  It technically isn't published yet, but I'm not going to let a small matter like that get in the way of this.  It will be published some day soon, and even if it's not, it will still be my favorite.  It's a funny, heart-warming love story that has characters so well written that I feel like I almost know them.  I've read it about five or six times, but the funny bits still make me laugh out loud and the srs bits still make me cry.

You can read the first draft at Ingrid's website for free, but the first draft is very different (zomg no incial virginitiez?  /bookquit) to the final version.

New word of the month:

Self stimulation through emotional or overly expressive or confessional means. Techniques include brooding, pining, moping, gazing intensely out into the middle distance and writing long, private LiveJournal entries that nobody else will ever read.

[1:11:03 AM] Lish says: lol
[1:11:07 AM] Lish says: lmao

[1:11:20 AM] Lish says: cos you ask me one grammar question and I go on and on and on?
[1:11:42 AM] Ingrid says: Because I can tell you're getting a lot of pleasure from the conversation without my having to contribute anything

Just got back from Middle School Information Night. About an hour of it was me in a classroom with 20 odd parents asking questions and me presenting information to them. It was pretty terrifying actually. I think I managed to cover everything and only slipped into the wrong register once ("you guys").

I'm exhausted now. My mind is like... quibbering in a corner somewhere. Is quibber even a word?

Disappointingly the hot Swedish MILF parent turned out to be a Czech parent (but still tall, blonde, and hot). She was sooo grateful that her son is enjoying school. Extremely friendly. I like her.

I apologise for becoming increasingly boring and only posting about work these days. It's because there's not much else to post about when my working hours are from 7am to 7pm on average.

In other news, I am amused becuase thirty seconds of a conversation with Ingrid and she had managed to cover bestiality, dungeons and holy vaginas. Lulz.

- I ate my breakfast in my car, my lunch in my English Department meeting, and my dinner in front of the computer.  I have such a healthy lifestyle.  Totes.

- While we're on the subject of healthy, I think I probably walk like 5km a day during work.  My office in the Year 7 building is at least 250m away from the senior part of the school where most of my classes are.  I made at least 20 trips back and forth between classes, photocopying, meetings, briefings, collecting resources and setting up my laptop.  And these aren't leisurely strolls either; they're usually a rush to beat bell times, all the while carrying large stacks of books and/or a laptop.  I'm gonna be pissed if I don't lose weight by the end of all this.

- The school network was down when I got to work this morning.  No internet.  No emails.  NO PRINTERZKFJSDjdkasjdfsdkohgodwhut.  I survived.  Barely. 

- I was so tired that I totally forgot what day of the week it was on the way home.  For a while, I thought it was Wednesday.  And then I realised it was Monday and I wanted to CRY.

- Got my package from Erin and Devon (and Bailey) when I got home and it was just the awesomest thing.  I can't even say how much.

- Ingrid is trying to convert me to Claire/Gretchen.  Wutbutber.

- So.  Fucking.  Tired.  Can't. Even.  Thin...zzzzzzzzz.

lishesquex: (WoW - order of akasha)
I have played almost 24 hours of WoW, on and off, with a couple of breaks in between. It's been good.  There were some hilarious moments around 6am when everything seems either particularly funny or depressing.   Mostly funny.  Like when I accidentally mt'ed "I think you know every single lesbian in the world" to a group of random strangers instead of Ingrid. Or when an uppity little gnome mage in our party got 1-shotted by a giant charging rhino 20 times his size and it was like, omgwtfbbqpwned.  ...You had to be there.

[livejournal.com profile] thrace_ is currently in the process of losing her soul on a 10 day trial of WoW.  Much fun was had today, riding on Thrynn's mechano-hog.  My mammoth, whilst large and hairy, was not as popular.

Breakfast today was The Last of the Frozen Fries.  I'm so glad mum is coming home today.  I miss food.  Not that my father doesn't cook - it's just that his food tends to be too rich.  All meat and rice.  All I want is carbohydrates other than rice or rice porridge at this point. A nice slice of bread.  Maybe a light salad.  Some roast chicken.  Damn, I've made myself hungry again.

I'm sleepy as hell 'cos I haven't slept.  Gotta stay awake to pick mum and Rianna up in an hour or so.  Guhhhn.

It's been a very low-key Christmas this year.  I didn't wake up until 2pm, and my father was out shopping.  Turns out he was buying a duck from Springvale.  Not a live one - just one to cook.  I mostly played WoW all day, with a bit of iPod Touch scrabble on the side.  I'm currently on my seventh game with Ingrid.  Score so far: Lish 6, Ingrid 0.  Now that I've bragged about it on LJ, I expect that karma will get me.

Dinner was annoying.  Dad invited three random people over for mahjong.  I don't even know who they were.  One of them kept asking me about teaching, and saying things like "Teaching must be such a wonderful job - you get so many holidays!"  Ugh.  Anyway, normally when my father invites people over, I stay quiet, zone out and eat my dinner and leave.  Usually, people approvingly remark something to the tune of "Lilian is such a quiet, demure girl!" which works to my favor, because it means I don't have to interact too much with anyone while fitting perfectly into Chinese social norms, or whatever.  And usually, Mum acts like a buffer and either does the talking for me, or is able to translate.  Today, this dude kept asking stupid questions like "So which school got the top VCE marks this year?" and "Which private school is the most expensive?" and "How much does a year at a private school cost these days?" and I'm like, internally, "How the fuck should I know?", but not really knowing how to express that politely in Chinese.  UGH FAIL.  And then they were like "Lilian, have some beer!" and I'm like "I don't fucking drink beer!" (but more demurely) and then they were like "But it's Christmas!  You have to drink beer!"  So I drank the beer, and tried to eat dinner as fast as I could so I could get the hell outta there.  And then they played mahjong and I went back to playing WoW. 

Anyway.  Then I watched some episodes of Merlin, and got to episode 2x08 and was like O.O at the new character, Morgause, and her total slashiness with Morgana.  I will probably do a picspam tomorrow.

Yesterday was good.  Dad had his little work party, and I went out with Jackie.  We had dinner at Claypot King, and then watched Avatar.  Jackie was very unimpressed.  I enjoyed it for the eyecandy.  The world of Pandora looks a lot like what I imagine Zangamarsh (a zone in WoW, for the uninitiated) would be like, if it were fully fleshed out.  I hope the people making the WoW movie take note of the effects used in Avatar and does something similar with its CGI.  It really was a very pretty movie.  The characterisation and plot in Avatar were complete fail though.  (However, I did enjoy the completely random Xena warcry that one of the aliens does, at around the one and a half hour mark.  Xenites, make sure you watch out for it.  I cracked up laughing when I heard it.)  Another highlight of the movie was Sigourney Weaver, although I had COMPLETE LESBIAN FAIL by totally not recognising who she was until the credits, at which point I was like "Ooooh that was Sigourney Weaver!" and Jackie was like -.-.

There's not much else to report, really.  I've somehow managed to mostly avoid the Christmas emoness that usually occurs.  I listened to Jewel yesterday, and that was about it for teh emo, so that was good.  Anyway.  Bedtime.

Bad sex

Sep. 9th, 2009 11:36 pm
lishesquex: (hed)
So, my friend Ingrid is currently working on the sex scene for her novel, and our conversations these last few days have revolved around buttsecks and lube bad sex scenes in fiction. What makes a bad sex scene bad? How does one write a good sex scene? Are the terms "love tunnel" and "lady business" ever called for?

To help answer these difficult questions, I created this graph:

The graph probably doesn't make much sense unless you've read these:
Lobster by Guillaume Lecasble
Eternity of Blood (AKA Night Travels of the Elven Vampire)

And just for fun:
The longlisted passages for the Bad Sex in Fiction award

And then there was this...
[11:42:42 PM] Ingrid says: So Paula introduced me to another term: Moss. Like the mossy mound. And also: Dew. So how's this for the TBSOL scene:
[11:43:05 PM] Ingrid says: ...her mossy mountain glistened with dew ... but less artificially sweet, less carbonated, less toxic green.]

[9:57:31 PM] Ingrid says: I googled 'skinny tall half black guy' to determine what Alk might look like and I got: http://bit.ly/15WJNU
[9:59:22 PM] Lish says: ahahaha
[9:59:24 PM] Lish says: OMG
[9:59:25 PM] Lish says: ALKY IS OBAMA
[9:59:30 PM] Ingrid says: THE SEKRIT IS OUT
[9:59:34 PM] Lish says: roflmao
[9:59:38 PM] Lish says: no wonder he hasn't been around lately
