Last day of the semester is tomorrow woot

4/26/09 12:02 pm - WHO WHAT WHERE WHEN WHY HOW

Jesus Christ, it's two weeks later already. Time is not my friend.

I've picked a four-year school to transfer to, and that school is Oswego. I was actually banking on a school way up near Canada called Potsdam, but it turns out that Oswego has a lot more classes to dick around with. Maybe I'll shoot for a Linguistics minor, just to completely round out the uselessness of my English/Creative Writing degree concentration.

And speaking of, lately I've been seeking out recommended books from my Writing Horror, SF & Fantasy class (most of them coming from that How to Write SF/Fantasy dealie by Orson Scott Card). Over the last week and a half, I've been traipsing all over Rochester trying to find them across the necessary two dozen branches. Here's what I dug up so far:

Octavia Butler, Wild Seed
Steven R. Boyett, The Architect of Sleep
M.J. Engh, Arslan
David Zindell, Neverness
Ansen Dibell, Plot (another creative writing how-to book)

Architect, by the way, is the only book on my to-get list that I had to buy off Amazon, since it is NOWHERE to be found in the whole of the library system (along with another novel called Wizard of the Pigeons, but that was around 20 bucks and Architect was $4, shipping included.)

Anyway, it's also the only book of the lot that I've finished so far, and it's a pretty engrossing read. The basic plot: Lit major dropout/spelunker enthusiast tumbles through otherworldly doorway Alice-style to a world where anthropomorphic raccoons speak sign language. Furry implications aside (and it was written in the 80s, so I doubt there's any influence), I actually found it quite relatable. I've probably talked about this ad-nauseum in just about every other entry on this stupid journal, but my parents are deaf, and being constantly surrounded by friends, family and acquaintances who have a method of communication so beyond anything you're accustomed to struck a big chord with me.

Of course, it helps what I knew going into it that the book basically has NO ENDING. It's not even a cliffhanger - the story just halts halfway through, and any number of loose ends are left dangling naked in the breeze. And because of publisher complications, the sequel was written, but never put on the market. Twenty-something years later (and after tracking down the author's website), the sequel is still in the cards and he'll start shopping it around again after wrapping up the sequel to his first novel, which is getting published in late 2009. And I thought the ending to Brood War gave me non-closure blue balls.

And oh hey I'm starting a new journal on Blogspot in the near future. What's it about? Will I even get around to creating it before graduation next month? WHO FUCKING KNOWS

Filling out my TAP forms with dad later tonight. Arguments and ungodly screaming to follow.

McCain's arm movements remind me of C3PO

And yet his bodily proportions are more reminiscent of R2D2
I think I found my graduate thesis


Also, Obama and McCain trying to out-working class each other

sA m U3 lk
They'll get it eventually.

that voice was on a frequency audible only to bats
Caves across the United States will converge on our cities and smother them


Presenting: the John McCain drinking game
"general petraeus" *drink*
"my friends" *drink*
"terrible joke eliciting no response from audience whatsoever" *drink*
*shuffles around aimlessly in background* *drink*


sA m U3 lk

Oh man I hope he mentions Time magazine

sA m U3 lk
Dude, I'm glad the Russians are becoming supervillains again.

We really need to go back to Superman beating up Japs and printing government bonds with a huge turnstile
Except with Russia this time

sA m U3 lk
I'd love that.
To make mischief. Haha.

Haha "make mischief"
Russia is Dennis the Menace running his bike over Mr. Wilson's flowerbed

sA m U3 lk
Dude, Mr. Wilson's first name.

All with a hammer and sickle decal on the front of the handlebars


UNNNNNNNNNNN *shakes fist*
*has bloatee*

sA m U3 lk
They should just have a rap battle.
We all know Obama would win.

Yeah but that's an unfair advantage
There should at least be a ragtime accompaniment follow-up

sA m U3 lk
I bet McCain can sing Country music pretty well.
They'd have a bluegrass competition after the rap battle.

Now that's what I call fair and balanced
Honestly it would be worth it to see both of them in straw hats and overalls
With a wheat stalk hanging off their lips

sA m U3 lk
No shirts.
Just the overalls.
Bare feet.

With some sod laid out on the debate floor and a rickety porch in the background

Also of note is that I have a cold and my head currently feels like a tympani drum

Today, I am going to:

- Go to an antiquarian book fair and blow my entire paycheck on 80-year-old instruction booklets
- Make hummus and spread it on tofu hot dogs
- Scramble back to my job and work until my heart stops

Tell me I don't have an awesome life

Sam, I think I left my wobbuffet in your car. D:

Also, I was totally off the mark about the September thing, my soonest break is Thanksgiving. We can still meet up, though, so bother me over AIM about it (and so I can remember the extra scene shit we talked about for the script.)

Everyone else: I drove about 600 miles and back to meet a bunch of internet freaks in person

It was fun
