1. My NaNo fail, while not quite epic, is still pretty darned awful. How hard is it to sit down every day and write? Super hard, apparently.

2. I've been looking forward to going to church ALL WEEK! And now I get to go. :)

3. Sadly, I have to put gas in the car first. Grr.

4. Maybe I'll get my butt to a coffeeshop again -- the one where [livejournal.com profile] mayhap and I hung out was nice because there was no tempting, distracting interwebs.

5. My new Indigo Girls CDs rock my world.

6. We watched Dogma last night. Bartleby's rant always makes me tear up:
from IMDb )

Better go now. <3

1. Does anyone know if there's a [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge community centered around the 50 states? I.e., for every state, read one book set in that state by an author from that state? Or maybe one focused around the EU states, or the UN states? Because that would be cool.

2. First seen via [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2:
The rules:
Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with your picture


It's been an hour or so since I saw the meme, but I promise I haven't primped in any way. Mebbe combed my hair a wee.
ugh )

3. I'm not really fond of quoting shows out of context. Makes me less gleeful when the quotes pop up in context. But meme says we're meant to quote the Buffyverse so here are some from eps we watched recently:

WESLEY: I am from the Watcher's Academy in southern Hampshire. In fact, I happen to be head boy.

CORDELIA: Gee, I wonder how you earned that nickname.

WESLEY: A lot of effort, I don't mind saying. (Angel 4.06 "Spin the Bottle")

++

Buffy: I, I don't understand. Was it m-me? Was I not good?

Angel: You were great. Really. I thought you were a pro. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2.14 "Innocence")

(Thx to Buffyworld and Buffy vs. Angel for transcripts.)

hi, fandom

Erotic power is the energy that produces creative synthesis, and is enhanced by the relationships that emerge from creative synthesis. It produces not fusion and control, but connectedness. - Rita Brock, Journeys By Heart: a Christology of Erotic Power, 39.

One of the bonuses of stalking the [livejournal.com profile] femslash_minis Dawn round II sign-ups (you still have time to sign up, by the way, but act now before this limited time offer ends!) and writing Giles/ and Hermione/ drabbles (which you can also still request) and working on my paper all at once is that I'm thinking about community in terms of fandom and totally thrilling to the whole idea of fandom, which I've been away from, because we write together and think together and explore together and inspire each other. How much do I love the squee breaking out in the comments-pages over everyone's great prompts, the synchronism of our thought, the fact that we are (once again) playing the game we love best.

I just hope my paper will be more coherent than this post.

I have to go to work now, so here. Five. It took me all morning to find five suitable ones. I think these sum me up.

+Every time we remember to say "thank you," we experience nothing less than heaven on earth. -- Sarah Ban Breathnach

+I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it. -- Rita Mae Brown

+The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised. -- George F. Will

+When you come to a fork in the road, take it. -- Yogi Berra

+I have not slept one wink. -- William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), "Cymbeline", Act 3 scene 4

[public, with poetry]

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him, nothing was made that has been made. In him is life, and that life is the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:1-5 NIV alt.

1. We did indeed go out for dinner. I had steak and it was *yummy*. Yay.
2. I got gingerbread mocha at Borders. It was yummy.
3. I got to put away buttons.
4. I read Concerning the Book that is the Body of the Beloved by Gregory Orr at the bookstore today and really enjoyed it. Bits of it made me sort of teary.
Did you think
You would see
The loved one again
In this world
Or in some other?

No, that cannot happen.
But we have been
Gathering, all of us
The scattered remnants
Of the loved one
Since the beginning.

In Egypt the loved
One is not in the pyramids
But in the poem
Carved in stone
About the lover's lips
And eyes.

Ohmy! It is so Daniel/Sha're!

5. I am really excited about my brain working again.

Three things I did well today:
1. Work.
2. Ate lunch.
3. Copied down the website to go to in case of possible work-closings.

Two things I am looking forward to doing (better) tomorrow this weekend.
1. Dare I say it? Grad school apps.
2. Secret santas. Also Toby-fic. *cringes and hides*

We move toward each other
Like two words
That will join in a poem

A small poem, a little song,
But one in which we're not alone. -- Gregory Orr

Master: Are you willing to be flogged while learning?
Pupils: It is dearer to us to be beaten for the sake of learning than not to know. But we know that you are gentle and unwilling to inflict blows on us unless we force you to.
Ari: OMG! Master/Pupils! OTP!!!!1111oneoneoneeleven!!!!!

I love homework.

1. What did you do in 2003 that you'd never done before? I drove... okay, I did that before, but not legally. Ah yes. I wrote fanfic.
and the rest of the survey )

*ping* I'm here for the night but Mom will be using the computer. If you want, call. Love.

Useful advice from my father:
"Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think."-- Niels Bohr (1885-1962)

I've been grinning inanely to myself all day... people must be worried.... this is excellent. *taps fingertips together* I feel like writing Holmes/Moriarty slash... Because it's a good, if ever so slightly frelled.

The sky today is beautiful. It's so blue.

Phone this weekend? When would you like me to call you?

*bounces around*

"Silence gives consent, or a horrible feeling that nobody's listening."-- Franklin P. Jones

My monitor is sporting clips from church bulletins, and one of them says, "Forgive us, God of unrelenting mercy," and that is, at this moment, the memory I need to hold in my heart. unrelenting mercy. Self-hatred is a lie because God is Love, infinite, illogical, impossible, and completely overpowering.

I'm going to a SOULS meeting tonight, the first one I've attended since fall of my freshman year, and I'm going to do my best to be fully present in the room. I am not seeking inspiration for a story or a poem; I am going there to be part of my community on campus. I will go, and I will go happily.

And then I will go to sleep.
