hallo, livejournal, and merry festivus!

right, so. i changed scrapofpaper's layout, and i didn't fuck it up too badly, only the background seems to stop working about midway down the page. because i am css-illiterate, i'm clueless as to how to fix it. anyone wanna help me out? (here is where i got the layout from, if it helps.)

eta: I ALSO FINALLY FUCKING UPDATED MY OWN LJ'S LAYOUT! LOOK LOOK LOOK IT HAS A LINE FROM ELIOT'S FOUR QUARTETS AUGH ISN'T IT AWESOME I LOVE EVERYTHING

eta2: so apparently scrapofpaper's layout works just fine in chrome, but malfunctions in firefox. now i am even more confused. er. halp?

eta3: now i'm just getting obnoxious, but i just noticed that my journal's layout is green and scrapofpaper's layout is red! D'AWWWWWW. IT'S CHRISTMAS IN LJLAND!

i (predictably) have not read my flist since i got back to school, but tonight i am procrastinating hardcore, so i have come crawling back! HALLOOOOO, WORLD. i have really nothing to say except that i have twelve days to write two conference papers, so i am going to do the only possible logical thing and share two songs wot i have been playing obsessively the past couple of days.


cannot stop watching or listening. it has been stuck in my head forever, so i am hoping to infiltrate your brain too so as not to be alone. HUZZAH. is also a really excellent break-up song.


this one has no video, but it is an awesome awesome song about addiction, which automatically makes it my favorite ever.

PLEASE DISTRACT ME FROM CONFERENCE PAPER HELL, FLIST. I EVEN HAVE UPLOAD LINKS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED! HERE IS "THE YOUNG THOUSANDS" AND HERE IS "SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW." PLEASE BE MY FRIEND SOMEBODY TALK TO ME I HAVE BEEN STARING AT THIS SCREEN FOR SO LONG OH GOD WHAT IS SLEEP

GOOD EVENING, LIVEJOURNAL NATION. i come to you on a noble mission to uncover the contents of your pants, which really isn't half as sketchy as it sounds. you see, the girlfriend and i found ourselves in a heated debate this evening, the subject of which, once again, is (unfortunately) not half as lascivious as it sounds. i threatened to consult livejournal because that is what i do when i need to be proven right, so here i am AND I COME BEARING A POLL. DON'T LET ME DOWN, LIVEJOURNAL! THE FATE OF MY RELATIONSHIP RESTS ON YOUR COLLECTIVE SHOULDERS.

Poll #1744174 a question of direst import

Do you select the underwear you put on your body each day with any amount of consideration?

yes. it is important to me that my underwear is CLEAN, you dolt.
13(44.8%)
nope!
4(13.8%)
I devote undue amounts of thought to deciding on which pair matches my temperament and/or outfit.
3(10.3%)
occasionally.
3(10.3%)
something else. I will elaborate in the comments of this post because I understand that this is IMPORTANT RESEARCH. FOR SCIENCE.
6(20.7%)

If asked at some point in the day what your underwear looked like, would you be able to retrieve this information from your short-term memory without peeking?

yes, of course!
12(57.1%)
wtf dude no who the fuck thinks about these things?
7(33.3%)
Depends on whether it's Tuesday. because Tuesday is leopard-print thong day.
0(0.0%)
You are a pervert.
1(4.8%)
SOMETHING ELSE! I will elaborate in the comments because I am taking this survey VERY. SERIOUSLY.
1(4.8%)

Do you think anyone who answered "yes" to the above question is abnormal?

YES
1(5.0%)
NO
8(40.0%)
who gives a flying fuck?
3(15.0%)
I think you are infinitely more abnormal for devoting time to making this poll in the first place.
2(10.0%)
no, seriously, I find it even more astoundingly abnormal that some poor long-suffering soul willingly calls herself your girlfriend and you are not, in fact, a ten-year-old boy.
1(5.0%)
for fuck's sake, GO TO BED, ELLIE.
5(25.0%)

What do you generally call that little flap of fabric that generally goes betwixt your genitals and your pants?

underwear
19(36.5%)
underpants

0(0.0%)
undergarment
0(0.0%)

2(3.8%)
something different and/or infinitely more creative with which I will ravish you in the comments of this post!

THE YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL MEME


i ask you, is there a better time to tell someone you love them than the rapture? clearly the answer is no, which means i think it is time for the orgy at the end of the world, people.

in six years of livejournaling, today marked my very first friends cut. rite of passage y/n? anyway, i deleted some journals which belong to people i haven't spoken to in years, or in some cases months that feel like years. if you'd like to re-connect with me but i've just de-friended you, please drop me a comment or a message! i only removed people i felt i'd been drifting away from (no hard feelings, i hope), but hey, everyone makes mistakes, and there are always those people you sort of passively wish to get to know better but never manage to get around to it...if i'm one of those people for you, don't be shy--i'm still totally open to getting to know you; i just didn't know you wanted to know me.

i love this weather so much i want to have sex with it.

i am also rather in love with the choice of john c. reilly as haymitch in the forthcoming hunger games movie. it is perfect in every way (JUST LIKE THIS MFING WEATHER) and almost makes up for the horrendous casting of gale. almost.

i'm not quite in love with the idea that i am already excited about a movie that isn't coming out for another eleven months, but hey, you know what they say in therapy. that looking forward to things serves a pretty important function in that it, you know, keeps you looking forward. which is, i hear, the antithesis of suicide.

who here has read the hunger games? who here has dismissed them as another shit-lit fad a la twilight? if you are in the latter camp, you better re-think that shit pronto and haul your ass to your local library or bookstore. i mean it. imagine the most dangerous game meets brave new world, and then throw in a kickass chick with a bow and arrow who you can't quite classify as either a heroine or an anti-heroine.

i am also looking forward to NOT BEING IN HIGH SCHOOL EVER A-FUCKING-GAIN in a matter of weeks. i've still got over a month of time to serve, but shit, son. i will never have to set foot in a fucking high school EVER AGAIN if i don't want to (unless shit gets apocalyptic and someone decides to convert it into a bomb shelter or something). i will never ever ever ever have to take another bullshit standardized test, or be a part of a system where scoring points is valued over actual thinking, and the vast majority of the people in charge have this strange and vaguely authoritarian idea that it's more important to be punished for fucking up (a vital part of exploring and learning) than to figure out how to fix it. probably, i'll be disillusioned again in a matter of months, but for right now? the idea of being thisclose to getting the fuck out is sexy as hell. at any rate, i'm about to spend four years in a place where learning is actually fucking encouraged and facilitated. that's pretty exciting.

a less disjointed, more substantive entry is coming (eventually...maybe sometime around the hunger games's release date :P), but for now i think ima go back to basking in the sunlight like a lizard. catch y'all on the flip side.

ahem. i have an announcement to make.

i don't know how to tell this to ya, but...

I JUST GOT INTO SARAH FUCKING LAWRENCE

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i would post something a little less incoherent, a little more representative of my "compelling [...] qualities" as a ~~~promising young writer~~~ BUT I THINK THIS JUST KNOCKED THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE OUT OF MY HEAD?

HOPEFULLY NOT FOREVER

I REALIZE THAT WHAT I AM DOING IS HAVING PAROXYSMS OF JOY ALL OVER MY KEYBOARD AND NOT FORMING ACTUAL SENTENCES I PROMISE I AM USUALLY A BETTER WRITER AND THERE IS A REASON SLC ACCEPTED ME BUT RIGHT NOW THIS IS KIND OF ALL I'M CAPABLE OF

PS: sarah lawrence also said my "insightful proposal on the connections between dystopias and real-world politics is perfect for slc." AND THEY WROTE "PERFECT" WITH TWO UNDERLINES fkjbsdfjkdnsfklsndlkfd

PPS: OH YEAH, i also got into smith, which is awesome, and i also got into bard, which is...bizarre. because they also sort of insulted me in my acceptance letter. no srsly. AND I QUOTE: "The Committee has reviewed your application with particular care and it is abundantly clear to us that you possess considerable talent. However in our judgment, it is also apparent that you have yet to consistently achieve academically at a level commensurate with your abilities. [...] Our offer of admission emanates from the belief that you can prosper at Bard and that you will take the responsibility to address whatever impediments exist to your academic success. We encourage you to seek assistance when necessary and expect that you will utilize the College's support services." LOLWHUT. 1) i told you i have clinical depression and ptsd, you dumb motherfuckers; 2) "our offer...emanates from the belief" sounds really dumb, and "utilize" is the most pretentious word ever, for christ's sake, you do not sound impressive because you know a synonym for "use," DO YOU SEE WHY I AM CHOOSING SARAH LAWRENCE OVER YOU YOU FUCKWITS ALSO I HATE YOUR EUPHEMISTIC BULLSHITTERY SERIOUSLY GO FUCK YOURSELVES

ANYWAY YEAH

I GOT INTO SLC AND NOW I CAN DIE HAPPY THAT IS ALL
