i'm proud to be from the great white north

Several disturbing things have happened to me in recent times. Here they are:

1. So I graduated from college and moved on to a much more exciting life, in which I bake lemon cakes, sleep a lot, and sometimes watch "Titanic" two nights in a row. YESSSS. I was supposed to live in Grinnell for the summer, but then it turned out that my life is a moneyless pit of despair, so here I am at home. Lookin' for jobs, munchin' on cookies, hatin' the world. I want to work at Epic systems in Madison with all my heart and soul, but first I need to prove to them that I'm not the kind of bum who just sits around baking lemon cakes and watching "Titanic" two nights in a row. UGH WHY.

2. This is completely unrelated, whatever. DID YOU KNOW THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN ONLY SURVIVED THE TITANIC? I guess other people knew this. But seriously, for the last ten years, I thought she survived at least four famous ship disasters. I really don't think you can classify someone as "unsinkable" if they only survived one shipwreck. I guess maybe the other attempted sinkings were metaphorical. Either way, I feel like my entire life has been a lie.

3. One day I will write a long long treatise on the last three episodes of HIMYM and why I feel personally affronted. Not now though.

4. However, I just realized that the names of all the HIMYM characters are kind of strange and unusual and awesome. Barney? Robin? Marshall? How the fuck many people do you know named Barney? Once I knew a kid named Barnaby, and we called him Bananaby, which is why people don't have that name anymore. Because of me.

Pairing: Jim/Pam
Warning: This doesn't follow canon. I mean, it kind of does, but it's in a weird, sort of AU Office universe where Pam and Roy are still together. Basically the Christmas party that never happened.

you will most assuredly drown tomorrow

So, I've become a little obsessed with the four things meme. So based off an earlier conversation about Lucille Bluth having NO FEAR, I present my own 'four things', surely to be followed up with more if people give me suggestions.

This weekend was fun but not ridiculous - drank too much on Thursday (met men who had just returned from the war, who wanted to buy us drinks and get our numbers, of which we allowed just one), went to a Halloween party yesterday (dressed up as a bottle of Lambrini), watched the rugby and then stayed in tonight (England lost, no apparent rioting).

I'm not sure what I want to do tomorrow, but I'm in a wonderful "write and go places and think and be by myself in a good way" kind of thing lately. My favorite weekend thing to do is to find a tube stop I've never been, go there, and just get out and look around. So far, I've found huge cemeteries, wonderful antique markets, two really friendly head shops, too much fish and chips, parks, a bunny farm, and other great things. I think tomorrow I might try to hit up a museum, but it's so much easier (and more enjoyable) to just chill out in a cool neighborhood.

Anyway, without further ado,

Four Times Lucille Bluth Was Actually TerrifiedCollapse )

Edit: P.S. I just remembered that over the summer, I wrote some very disturbing Gordon Smith/Ron Wyden Oregon senator fic. And now the question is: WHERE IS IT SO I CAN MAKE MY MILLIONZZZ.

The boy with such sad wings should stay off tall buildings
And keep away from high wires;
There's no circus left to join
