|I have empathy ...
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.
But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.
Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.

|Stars! I'm ready for my close-up
Yeah, oddly, I woke up dizzy on the 4th. Why? I dunno. Maybe I had a mini-stroke in my sleep or something.
Nah, more likely my iron levels are off or something. Still, I haven't stopped being dizzy, and I haven't done anything out of my regular routine that would cause it, so if it is my vitamin or mineral count, I gotta check with a doctor, because I take a One-A-Day to keep my iron levels from dipping too low.
>_< I really hope it's that, or some inner ear thing throwing my balance off - though, again, no ear pain signaling an infection. At least not the kind I usually get.
I just have bad pictures running through my mind of blockages causing oxygen deprivation and serious sh*t like that. My pessimism shines through, anyway.
I hate going to the doctor.

|Should Not Be Overlooked http://bookshop.livejournal.com/834653.html?nc=27
There is no reason, no excuse, that will ever be acceptable for this or anything like it. My next life, I'd rather be a cat than a member of a race that does shit like this and then IGNORES IT!!! Humanity BITES. Current Mood: pissed offCurrent Music: Breaking Benjamin, Phobia

|So this is what I miss ...
... when I drop out of certain fandoms for certain OTHER fandoms, and don't go back to even look around for ages and AGES!http://elsie.livejournal.com/72090.html
Just the collected links in one person's LJ to mistful
's a.k.a. Maya's fantabulous AU Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy fic "If You've A Ready Mind". All from Draco's POV, but a Draco who was placed into Ravenclaw instead of Slytherin, and how that turned certain events on their heads, and how apparently some events were unavoidable no matter what.
Serious crack for the serious addict. Current Mood: highCurrent Music: Radio trash

I read a fleet's worth of fic in an ocean's worth fandoms, and though I save stuff to memory or bookmarks, I don't really rec, and I thought I'd like to try putting up a rec every now and then of my favorite stories. Just to remind myself that I found so-and-so's story remarkable for one reason or another.
BTW, I read slash. Like, A LOT. (Yes, that was a warning, mon Genius.)
Hmm, which fandom to start with? Well, in honor of the recent debut of the third movie and final part of the franchise (which I had the pleasure of seeing twice on opening weekend - and which sent me straight for the FixIt!fics), I'll rec my new fav that picks up from where Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End leaves off.
String Theory by manic_intent
Four parts up, on-going WIP, promises to get even better than the opening chapters - which I am already dreaming about, so that tells you right there how hooked I am. A snarky living ship that can manifest herself in human form, quarrelsome gods, stormy deceased-yet-thoroughly-British ex-Admiraldores and pirates wot can't hold on ta their own ships Above or Below for all that they are 'Good Men'. Heh, and a whole host o' other stuf that I'll have to re-read the story ifna I wanna r'member. Current Mood: contemplativeCurrent Music: "What Have You Done Now" - Within Temptation

|CW and it's C-R-A-C-K
Smallville ep. 6x20 "Noir" made me laugh my head off. Can't take this show any other way nowadays.
Supernatural ep. 2x20 "What Is and What Should Never Be" made me cry. Real face-crumpling, snot-running, supra-ultra-sucks-out-loud upset crying. POOR DEAN!!!!!!
And the preview made me scream.
I scared my cat and made my dog leave the room. Current Mood: indescribable

|Wednesday Night Fun
Wednesday was My Sister's Birthday, if you'll remember. January 3. So Mum and I coerced, er, convinced, yeah convinced (hehe) her to let us take her out to dinner. Even got Brother to come, tho he wasn't feeling 100% yet - still sick, had a sore throat, poor baby.
Also, we managed to get the Neighbors to come. We went to the Japanese Sushi & Hibachi place on 202, Sugi is the name. It's really good food, and the staff is very friendly.
Anyway, we went, I sat next to Littlest Neighbor at the hibachi table so we ordered chicken & shrimp with extra noodles to share. Yum. Sister got tortured and humiliated in due course when we reached dessert, because the staff brought out her peach sorbet with a cute little candle and a hat for her to wear that looked like a birthday cake, and everyone sang Happy Birthday very loudly and enthusiastically.
Heh. Yeah. So that's what I did yesterday.
Just wanted to post this here so I could remember the very fun time that was had by all. Current Mood: chipper

|Well, I haven't really checked in for a while...
But this is what I've been playing with when I get the chance:
You scored 52% Slytherin, 28% Ravenclaw, 36% Gryffindor, and 24% Hufflepuff!
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
These cunning folk use any means
To achieve their ends.
Slytherins are known for their ambition, guile, and Machiavellian sensiblities.
Current Mood: good
My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
|You scored higher than 99% on Slytherin|
|You scored higher than 99% on Ravenclaw|
|You scored higher than 99% on Gryffindor|
|You scored higher than 99% on Hufflepuff|
