If you've ever seriously wondered about whether elves really existed, and whether Vikings had sex with them, then you're in luck:

"I think it would make the world a better place if more people had sex with elves" (Probably NSWF)

I especially love the symbolism with the geysers.

Mmm brains

What I really feel like doing is writing some long rambly post about my emotions, but I'm pretty sure that nobody wants to read about that.  So instead, I will write about my weird stomach chemistry.

I'm hungry.  It's been a few hours since dinner, so it's understandable.  But I'm hungry for meat.  It's like, my stomach won't accept anything else as food.  I just ate an apple, and some dried fruit, and biscuits, and a mug of hot tea, and then a whole bowl of vegetable soup.  But everything I eat just seems to make me hungrier and hungrier.  My theory is that my stomach produces too much stomach acid or bile or something and needs the protein and fat found in meat so that it has something to break down.  But there is no meat in the house.  So anything I eat just makes me more hungry.  Man, I would kill for a nice thick steak right about now.  I wonder if this is how zombies feel about brains.

I was going to play all these games this weekend, and I did play a bit of WoW, but mostly I've been addicted to one game this last week, and it has been Game Dev Story for the iPhone/iPod touch.  It is so addictive and very, very fun.  Basically it's a simulation game, but you play as a video game developer.  I'm not usually one to actually spend money on game apps, but this one was worth every cent.

Yeah, I know I'm really behind on this meme. I figured I'd just do one whenever I had the time and inclination to post.

Iceland has a special relationship with fish )

I will never stop loving that wacky little nation.

I drove home under the most beautiful brilliant red-orange-purple-blue sunset today.  The downside to that statement was that sunset is at 8:30pm, and I would have prefered to get home much earlier.  The amount of work lately has been really getting to me.  Meh, I just wrote a whole paragraph about the stresses of work, but then deleted it because it was boring and stressful to read over.

Yesterday was my birthday.  I'm now 23.  So old.  Mostly I played Dragon Age.  Also did some exam marking.  Watched Bones.  Cleaned my room.  Ate with my titanium spork.  I have become very boring in my old age, obviously.

I want a kitten.

Last week was a pretty good week.  Probably because there were only 3 working days in it.  I had another chat with Teh Boss, and it looks like they're going to offer me an on-going position next year.  On-going is good - I must be doing something right.

The next two weeks are going to be this horrible mess of exam correction and report writing.  If I survive, I'm totally buying Dragon Age: Origins the very next day as a reward.

Last night I went to see Swan Lake with Mum at the Regent theatre.

Today I beat scenario 4 of the Greek campaign in Age of Empires: Mythologies (DS).  Each scenario is getting harder and harder.  Very rewarding when you finally win though.  I like it.

Damnit, I just got bitten on the butt by a mosquito.

Bad sex

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.]

1. I finally chose a name for my virtual kitteh of doom. She's called Oracle. (Named after the comic character) I'm not sure if I'm happy with this name. In any case, I can change it with that hunter glyph. 'WUTBUTBER' is still in the running.

2. My car also has a name. It's official. He's called Wesley. *resigned sigh*

3. It only cost me $23.00 this week to fill up on petrol. Wesley <3.

4. Finally became Exalted Argent Champion of the Alliance and earned the Crusader title. Not really sure what to work towards now.

5. I don't know what to do / two states of mind in me

I read Santa Olivia today and omg it was so awesome. I literally couldn't put it down for four hours, and then I had to take a break because I was starving and getting a headache from reading for so long. It's earned a rank in my favorite books collection. And it's especially awesome because it didn't even make me emo, like many of my favorite!books have a habit of doing.

I am eating pieces of apple that taste like spring onion, because they were cut on a chopping board that had previously been used to cut spring onion. It's an interesting taste. Did you know that if you had absolutely no sense of smell, biting into a raw onion or potato would taste exactly like biting into a raw apple? I read this somewhere. But I haven't tested it out yet.

Cheese pornography exists:

I was going to name my new car 'Silvia' after the Silvia in LHDP, and because the car is kinda silvery. But Lyan objected because, apparently, Silvia is a red luxury car, and not a Toyota. So I have backnamed my old BMW 'Silvia', which is kind of apt because it was red, a luxury car, and spoilers for LHDP )

I spent three hours today looking for/making new star trek icons.

Happy International Day of Femslash!

Also, I want a cat.

I haven't been updating much lately.  Real life sort of took over, and between getting a job, quitting uni, filling out a billion forms, driving my sister everywhere and feeding the both of us, I haven't really had the time or inclination for endless online ruminations.  The food situation has gotten dire.  I was pretty okay with cooking for the first week and a half, but I've run out of things to cook.  And with Rianna not eating much solid food after getting braces last Thursday, I've been limited to feeding her various soups and mushy food.  Today for dinner we had a can of baked beans (mushy) and 2 minute noodles (soup).  Food fail.

Today I watched Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and thought it was teh awesome.  This was unexpected because I'm not a fan of Kirk.  But I loved the movie.  In contrast, the trailers for the latest Star Trek movie seem stupid.  Car chases and fist fights?  That's not Star Trek.  That's some lame action movie starring pointy-eared people.

So... tomorrow I'm going into uni one last time to return a book.   I've withdrawn from my course.  Well, deferred it.  It's all very dramatic and final. 

I like cheese.

Today I bought a can of WD-40 to try and remove the pine sap from my car and ended up spending half the day polishing all of my swords and knives.  This made me inexplicably happy.  Shiiiiney.  I also oiled three squeaky doors, polished the wheels of my car and finally replaced my 4-socket power board with an 8-socket one which means all my plugs can fit now, so my room is no longer in danger of an electrical fire.  *feels so productive*

Operation Learn to Cook: Phase 1 is also going well.  Yesterday I made stir-fried bok choy pretty much by myself (they were a tiny bit singed, but edible).  Today I moved onto stir-fried broad beans, which is pretty much the same as stir-fried bok choy except beans require a lot more water and several teaspoons of sugar.  They spat oil like a mofo, though, because they had to be defrosted and still had all this ice on them.  Oh, I almost forgot!  Yesterday I made lamb cutlets, too.  ALL BY MYSELF.  It was like...  Get meat.  Make fire.  Put meat on fire.  Flip meat.  Meat no longer bleeding.  Eat meat.  Mmm, meat good.  My inner cave man is happy.

Picture of the stir-fried bok choy and a tiny bit of the lamb cutlets:

In other news, I'm trying to convince mum to let us adopt a kitten.  Operation Adopt A Kitten is not going so well.  But I will persist!

Today was the day of the butt unicorns.

lishesquex: (iconomicon - choices)
1) I got my car serviced today, at Glen Waverley UltraTune. -$155.

2) I'm reading "Sexing the Cherry" by Jeanette Winterson. So far there has been no sex, or lesbians, or cherries of any sort. The writing is full of her usual philosophical vagueness, fairytale poetics and biblical allusions, which I both love and hate. Happiness is not a potato. + 1 reading skill

3) Straight girls are driving me crazy. Like, completely INSANE. +100000 frustration

4) Mum took up yoga. o.O +100 weirdness to the normal order of things

5) I'm flirting with the idea of applying for a job opening in a Catholic school in the UK. + 50 evidence that I have lost my mind (refer to point number 3).

6) I have decided Neverwinter Nights completely fails as an RPG.  Complete fail.  +100 fail.

7) I will leave you now with some Jeanette Winterson vagueness:

The Hopi, an Indian tribe, have a language as sophisticated as ours, but no tenses for past, present and future. The division does not exist. What does this say about time?

Matter, that thing the most solid and the well-known, which you are holding in your hands and which makes up your body, is now known to be mostly empty space. Empty space and points of light. What does this say about the reality of the world?

-- Jeanette Winterson

Although, actually... the Hopi do have ways of referring to time (i.e. tenses), but they're divided into two basic states instead of three.  "Objective", everything that is knowable and measurable, including the past and present; and "subjective", everything that is mental, spiritual or conjectural, including the future.  /geek

My holidays are almost over. One week is not enough.

Mum's been away in China for the last week so it's mostly just been me and Rianna. Yesterday we had McDonalds for lunch and ordered pizza for dinner. Today Rianna had left over pizza for breakfast, and then we had McDonalds for lunch again. So unhealthy. -.- But srsly, there's nothing else to eat. Dad keeps having guests over and cooking weird food, which is completely unappealing, or he goes out and has dinner with his mates. And there's nothing to cook... not even instant noodles. *starves*

I had a weird and stressful dream this morning. I was in Year 12 again, except I was at Koonung and not GWSC. And in the dream my teacher (Mr Bryson o.O) told me that I had three exams the next day: Specialist Maths, Maths Methods and Literature. The Literature exam was at 11am, and Spec was scheduled for 1:30pm. And then I woke up on Friday at 1:30pm and was like oh shit, I missed my exams! Ugh, such stress.

I'm pretty sure that dream was born from my having to photocopy my academic transcripts yesterday. In the same folder was my VCE transcript, which had all my Year 12 subjects on it, including Lit, Methods and Spec. And I guess the Koonung bit came from my stressing over the lesson plans that I still need to do for Ann.

Lyan and Julia were somehow in my dream as well, except they were fighting because Lyan kept eating all the food. Hmm. I don't know how my subconscious came up with that one.

In other news:

[+] A parcel from [ profile] selina_ arrived, which made my week. She is awesome. :)

[+] I've been playing random flash games on Kongregate a lot. It is addictive. Really addictive.

[+] I've made up my mind to get the Xbox 360 over a Wii. I have promised myself the 360 for when I get a job. Much more incentive to find one, methinks.

[+] I've almost finished Love, Death and the Changing of the Seasons, and it's amazing. For those of you who don't know, it's the story of a love affair between two women written completely in sonnet form. I'm not usually an avid poetry reader, but this book pwns me. It helps that all the sonnets fit together to make a single narrative. Narrative is ftw.

Here is my new favorite poem, a break up sonnet:

Did you love well what very soon you left?
Come home and take me in your arms and take
away this stomach ache, headache, heartache.
Never so full, I never was bereft
so utterly. The winter evenings drift
dark to the window. Not one word will make
you, where you are, turn in your day, or wake
from your night toward me. The only gift
I got to keep or give is what I've cried,
floodgates let down to mourning for the dead
chances, for the end of being young,
for everyone I loved who really died.
I drank our one year out in brine instead
of honey from the seasons of your tongue.

Yesterday I had a horrible long stressful day where I was out and about from 8am and didn't come home until 9. Today I woke up with a cold. :/ This is not good. I cannot be sick right now, I'm too busy. So today I skipped my two morning classes so that I could get more sleep and maybe fight off this cold quickly. Meh.

*eats an apple*

I recently read about this guy, a gay autisitic savant with mathematical synesthaesia (he can feel the texture/colour/shape of numbers), can "sense" the answer to calculations by the synesthesic landscape in his head, and haz language absorption skillz. He knows like 11 languages, including Icelandic which he learnt in in 1 week. :O Mad skillz. It makes you wonder about the human brain - all the stuff we could do if it were wired a little differently. Also makes you wonder about numbers. There's something almost mystical about being able to solve calculations with no conscious mental effort, because you can see a mental landscape. Like a seventh sense or something. It's like that time in high school biology where we were learning about the senses, and how some animals don't have certain senses, and some don't have any senses... and we started wondering how many senses that we humans are missing that we don't know about?


Life. Life is... stressful as fuck at the moment. My teaching rounds start in a week and I'm scrambling to get everything prepared. Ugh. *runs off*

Today I randomly got out my school planner from 2002 (Year 10) and started flicking through it. It was like opening a time capsule. There are so many things from that year that I had forgotten. One thing that I had completely forgotten about was that Erin had written a random message/quote/thing on each page for me to read throughout the year.

You go you big red fire truck! ...or is it a fire engine? I can't remember.

And in pencil next to it, I'd (later) written "Ask Jackie."

This now completely mystifies me. (Do you remember anything about fire trucks/engines, Jackie?)

More randomness )

I had the most random day today with regards to animals. There was a goat at uni. Yes, a goat. And then on the way home I saw a possum. And then a few minutes later, a cat jumped out of nowhere and started meowing crazily and rubbing itself against me. o.O
