Twice now I’ve set the alarm clock to wake me in the afternoon so I could get up for a date. Twice now the song playing when the alarm activates is Nirvana’s Rape Me.

Then one day I stay up after my shift for an early date. After it ends and on my drive, I turn on the radio for the opening strings to start.

I should probably be concerned.

Continuing Notes

It was only until the middle of my presentation in the second to last week of class I realized that the Professor in The 39 Steps was essentially Hitchcock himself.

In case someone doesn't want to be spoiled.Collapse )Hey, it fits his sense of humor.

From the notes on a course on Hitchcock:

I was about five minutes in counting all the anachronisms in The Lodger before I realized I was, in fact, watching Blackmail.

My brain is in that weird space where I am both totally exhausted but completely awake; this isn't something that happens to me often. I have been awake since ten o'clock on Wednesday morning. I work what will probably be a full shift tonight so I'm not worried about sleeping all day.

I wrote my first fic in over a year. It's still in it's first draft, I haven't even read over it again to fix the many typos in it. I don't know about posting it. Usually after I do a quick typo and small edit run I print it out, put it a shoebox under my bed and leave it for my brain to partly forget about for a few weeks until I can come back to it with a fresh view. (This is something I read in Steven King's book on writing and find it does a hell of a lot for my stories.)

I haven't written anything 'real' in over a year. I've written plotlines for fics and original stories, and started pages of original stories that didn't go anywhere. I've just been too busy, tired and uninspired to sit and write something I can put my heart into. Wrote daily, yes. Wrote with my heart into it, not, not really. The closest thing to an accomplishment is that I finished the long plot synopses to a long story I'm still researching the history and mood for. The plot outline alone is something like fifteen pages, but I have no idea what it will look like when I finally finish it. Might be novel length, might be kind of short. It's weird, I remember writing the first paragraph of it that came to mind in August 2008, and then I had no idea what it was about, just a basic idea.

The fic I just finished was from an idea I got a very long time ago and started then, but left on the first page because I was unsure if I wanted to go there. It's just one of those stories you can write, but not sure if it's okay, y'know? Probably not. You're probably braver and smarter than I.

Over a year since I last posted. What else? Oh yeah.Collapse )

Conversation recently at work:

Guy from Louisiana: You know, Christopher Columbus, the guy who discovered America?
Girl from Minnesota: (joking) You mean Leif Ericson.
Guy from Louisiana: No. Christopher Columbus, who sailed around the world on the Mayflower.
Girl from Minnesota: (pause) Wait, what?

 This week in Mass Comm, a hard-of-hearing student demonstrated the i711 system for the class by prank-calling his dog’s vet.

After two years of fandom, finally got my hands on a DW. NA The Highest Science by Gareth Roberts.
