I have just spent an hour slinking around my house, dancing to my "Sexy" playlist. Yes, that is what the playlist is called, because I am creative like that.

...Apparently prolonged undulation is not good for my back? WHO KNEW. *g*

Weekend of relaxation is going well so far: I have a shitload of fic to read tonight (\o/), I practiced my driving and I didn't kill ANYONE and I ate delicious junk food (but I totally did yoga afterwards so it doesn't count). I'm hoping that the rest of the weekend feels like this: relaxed and fun, but pretty damn productive at the same time. (Of course, I have now jinxed myself and tomorrow will suck. Just you watch.)

Things I plan to do this weekend: change my layout (seriously, it's just sad), and finally upload some bandom icons. You wouldn't be able to tell that I even like any bands from the ones I have right now. I only have 15 icons, though! How do I pick fifteen icons from the hundreds of pretty, pretty ones I have? Sadface, man.

EDIT: I have a Dreamwidth code! Sure, I don't know what the hell to call myself yet, but I have one! \o/

EDITS ARE FUN: Ha! I changed my layout! I'll probably change it agian, this was kind of just to see if I could. Yeah, it was kind of not difficult at all. *headdesk*

I HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO: So, I can't make my icons any bigger, and all my subject lines are capitalised (strangely annoying) and I can't center that text that I want to... But still! It's different, and I'm too tired to care anymore happy.

Why do I always forget how much I love Howl until I listen to it? I mean, I always kind of think "gee whiz, I love Empires!" and then I kind of... forget? Of course, there are a couple of songs that I listen to basically every day (namely "Under the Bright Lights" and "Haley" and "I Want Blood") but still! /o\ Now I am listening to it and I'm blown away all over again. Sean's voice is... quite possibly the best thing in the world. 

Some recs!

nobody's looking for a puppeteer in today's wintry economic climate by [livejournal.com profile] battleofhydaspe . I read Empires fic! Well, one fic. And now I'm wondering, WHERE IS ALL THE REST OF IT? Perhaps it exists and I am just so faily that I haven't noticed? Sadly, this is very plausible. The point is I read this last night. It's Sean/Tom (hello new OTP, come on in and out your feet up) and it's kind of ridiculously great. They're just two guys and it's just a normal night, but it's so well-written that everything about it is special. Yeah, just read it. I suck at explaining.

flying into the sun by [livejournal.com profile] stealstheashes . Ryan/Spencer  An incredible universe in which everyone has wings until they lose they're virginty... I mean, what more do you need? My favorite aspect of this fic was THE WINGS the relationship Ryan and Spencer had, fragile but at the same time they were always RyanandSpencer, even when they weren't talking. Also, Brendon. He doesn't show up very much, but when he does it's gold.

So! I have done my good deed for the day by encouraging you to read about sexy times and wings and love and shit. Now, food! I went to the dentist this morning and my mouth hurt too much to eat anything all day. Essentially, I haven't eaten in 14 hours and I kind of want to hit somebody. My mouth feels less ow ow omg ow, so I'm going to give it the old college try. *crosses fingers* In other tooth-related news, my wisdom teeth come out in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I'm looking forward to drooling for 2 days straight, and my face swelling up. I also appreciate the fact that they give your teeth back to you. Nothing says Get Well Soon! like a baggie full of gunk and molars. \o/

Ugh.

So, on the plus side, I feel less disgusting. In the minus side? 3 hours and 43 minutes of sleep. Really? REALLY? \:< (<----- that is my grumpy face. it does not approve)

On the (really huge) plus side, I have AAR and Hey Monday to listen to. And Abbey Road and a whole bunch of other random stuff.

I plan to spend the morning glued to the couch. Nothing like TV on a rainy morning.

ETA: Alex DeLeon (Singer from The Cab) is surprisingly eloquent. And unsurprisingly adorable. I think that blog is the first bandom blog I've ever commented on?

Seriously, NOTHING happened today. I went out to luch with my brother and my dad (FREE FOOD), and had some delicious Italian sounding thing. It had tuna and peas and garlic and heavy cream and rosemary and I wanted to die it was so good.

I also had numerous x-rays of my hand taken. This was rather unpleasant, as I had to bend over the x-ray table in a rather suggestive position for about half an hour while turning my hands over and over. Also, the x-ray technician had a really strong accent, which made communication pretty hard. She kept asking me to... I don't know what, and then I'd delicately furrow my brow at her and she'd come out of her safe-box and readjust me. It sounds hotter than it was.

Then I read Harry Potter fic. I don't care if Malfoy is a total prat in the books, Harry/Draco is my OTP for sure. Harry/Hermione always seemed kind of incestuous to me.

Now, I'm listening to Jack's Mannequin and LOVING ANDREW! He's so talented! And awesome! And his voice makes me go "nnnnngh"/cry/dance around/all of the above.

ETA: Why do all my "happy" icons look identical.

Hee: MY LIFE HAS BECOME A BORING POP SONG AND EVERYONE IS SINGING ALONG. How so angsty, Andrew?
HOW THE HELL DID PATRICK STUMP GET BETTER?!?!?!?! I didn't think it was possible! I love it. LIKE BURNING.

My jaw actually dropped. That's how good this song is. I cannot wait for this, I'm going to buy it the DAY it comes out dammit!

*flails*

*flails some more*

*is incoherent*

 

Um, what?

Ok, so I disappear for 2 days and now there's an FOB mixtape floating around? *is confused* WHERE IS THIS MYSTERIOUS TAPE OF AWESOME? Yeah, I fail so hard, I can't even find it. Sigh.

I should post about my weekend, but I'm a lazy bitch today. I will, however, say that it involved the following:

Strawberries from heaven
A concert
Wandering the streets of Cape Town with my girls
Inhaling about a boxful of cigarettes worth of secondhand smoke
CUTE BOYS EVERYWHERE (seriously, I love this town)
Fast Times At Barrington High
Rain

.... And that was just Saturday night. ALso, I'm feeling waaaaaay better so \o/

GUYS, IT'S LIKE I'M PREGNANT. (Or, not really, unless it was some creepy immaculate conception thing. Ew.) I've been feeling off lately, but it's the sneaky kind of sickness. I prefer a good honest cold- one knows exactly what to do in the face of a cold: eat a shitload of oranges, drink soup and whine to your concerned sounding parent/friend/sibling on the phone. Never fails. But I feel all naseous and light headed and I have these weird heart pain. Sigh. I can't stomach the thought of food; I'm eating the world's tiniest green salad and... some sort of protein. I'm tired of reading the labels on all those vegetarian boxes. It tastes kind of like salted cardboard though- YUM.

I've become one of those people who friends everyone and then lurks. Ew. Not cool. On that note, I'm off to make some noise.

Hope you all had a great day! Ooooh, today's most awesome song: That 70's Song by The Cab. Eternal thanks to

[Bad username or unknown identity: t_usual_suspect!   ]
So I have a Control of Financial Information systems project due tomorrow. I should probably finish it. It's kind of hard when there are so many awesome primers and  blogs and things floating around the interweb. STOP BEING AWESOME PEOPLE. 

I am so fucking happy today. I don't know what it is (Howl might have something to do with it), but I like it. I love it. I was walking around campus, smiling like an idiot. I feel... you know when your diving into a body of water, but it's a long way down? That second before you hit the surface? Yeah. That's me right now. 

Ha, could I be more emo? ;)

Life is short and life is good and we have to make the most of it. It's taken me a long time to come to that realisation; I spent a lot of time hiding. Wish I could get those years back, you know? But it's ok, I still have the ones coming up to enjoy. I just... I don't want anything bad to happen. Not before I've had my chance.

I hope you all have more fun things to do tonight than assignments on the business risks pose by HIV/AIDS. 
Kisses y'all!
Y'all, it's only 6.15 (AM!!) and I've been up for an hour. On the plus sound, I woke up to Motion City Soundtrack's "The Future Freaks Me Out", one of my new favorite songs. It's just so happy- you can't not bounce around when it's on.

Speaking of music: EMPIRES! [profile] t_usual_suspect is my favorite because she informed my behind-the-times ass that the cd was put up for download by the darling boys themselves here. Download it if you haven't already: they have such a great sound, not too pop-y but not so edgy that they're music makes you feel a bit sad. Because as much as I love Brand New and The Used? Most of their songs make me feel sad. 

That's one of the best things about music though, there's a song for every occasion. Sad, happy, peaceful, plain pissed off, lonely, energetic.... each of these can have their own soundtrack!

Anyway, back to work!
