The worst part of every single fall semester I go through in college is the span of time in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. November 29th through December 18th to be exact for this year.

Finals! *yells lots of lovely obscenities to accentuate the point*

I've got 3 10 page research papers to do, one of which was due today but alas was not turned in, another 4 or 5 page essay, a 2000 word short story for creative writing class, a reading journal, and 4 very nasty finals which will no doubt be the end of me.

So it's bad, but not on par with...let's say third world hunger. I won't complain too much.

and there is hope!

Unless I should die some horrible and sudden death between now and January 10th, 2005, I will be spending my spring semester in beautiful sunny London, England! Ok, scratch the sunny part. But thats' ok cuz I love the rain and clouds and cold in general (wait for me to eat those words).

Thank the lord that i'll still be able to get my PeacekeeperWars DVD in the UK.

2004: A Burbank Odyssey

So I left Burbank sunday night, rode the train back to orange county, went home to see the folks, had class on monday and tuesday, and then finally woke up a few hours ago. My memories aren't too clear about everything that happened over the weekend, this having something, just a little, to do with alcohol. But I'll do my best to give a brief or possibly very long and rambling account of what went on at the 2004 Farscape Convention...

Thursday -
Two words: Thursdays suck. Longest day of the week with four classes and annoying under the best of circumstances. Knowing I'd be at a farscape con that very evening just made things worse. I lay on my bed and found it very hard to leave it for fear of in-class boredom or, god forbid, learning. At 4:30 I finally left by bus for the train station and proceeded to almost kill a bus driver, a mother of four cute little Mexican kids, and myself dodging oncoming traffic in Santa Ana.

But I made it to the train station on time! 2 hours and one replaced locomotive (fu**ing trains) later I arrived in beautiful downtown Burbank.

After playing tag with a few more speeding cars I finally made it into the Hilton and found people at the most logical place: the bar. I met up with o2difor, cupcake, can1, can's friend angie, LordAriusValsheem, and korgg. Oh and I was attacked by kazbaby, who was of course completely sober and docile

The rest of the evening is obscured by Smirnov Ice (not drunk! I'm just so young and tiny that it don't take much) (ok I was drunk) (only a little). I do remember watching cartoon network with cupcake and korgg up in the room, and I may have come across catherinebruce although I wasn't aware it was her at the time and never got around to saying hello to her...damn my shyness!

ok thursday has been way too long, must shift to highlights

Friday -
Hangover fun!

Froon was awesome as always and the making of the PKWars was very funny and cool. Loved David Franklin introducing himself as CAPTAIN Braca and Claudia Black beating the crap out of her pregnant belly (how often can you use those words together in a sentence?)

Hmmmm, John's flightsuit from season 1 has a minimum bid of $5k at the auction but D'Argo's s3 costume goes for 900? Where's the D'Argo love?

Caught the tail end of Bianca (SHE KISSED ME LAST YEAR SHE KISSED ME LAST YEAR!!!!! I'M A DORK!)

Wayne spoke and he was very very cool. glad he was able to make it this year cuz come on...It's Scorpius. He seemed really happy to be there and eager to do more with the character. I take many bad pictures of him that don't come out. fun.

Signal Room concert rocked my socks man. They might not be the best band ever but being there live friday night, all the energy in the room, and ok a helping of Tequila made it great fun.

The rest of the night is again a blur, a happy fun WOOHOO I LOVE EVERYONE blur, but a blur nonetheless. gambit412 joined the gang today and and and I gotta see scorpy808 in her John Crichton coat which was very cool.

Saturday -
Hangover Fun part 2!

Brian Henson: Awesome and very very committed to making movie
David Franklin: Also Awesome...but I can't remember anything specific he said so he'll have to live with just being awesome. Sorry dude.

There was the eating of sandwiches up in o2's room and I learned a very special lesson about myself: I like clam dip

and artificial cheese? way better than real cheese.

I'm sure the fanfic panel was wonderful, but I couldn't hear most of it so I'll just have to go on faith. Although I am very glad someone asked about slash, cuz you can't have a fanfic panel without discussing the beauty and warmth of the John and Scorpius love affair. They're like sonny and cher, except with more brain eating

Gigi Edgely: She of the dancing around and cuteness and fantastic sense of humor. Also the only actress I know of so far that can create believable sexual tension in a scene with an actor who is playing her father...fun with incest?

Anthony Simcoe: IS THE COOLEST FUCKING PERSON ON THE PLANET...yeah he rocks

Francesca Buller: Hilarious and cute and small and also somehow a badass

Rounded out the con events for saturday with the talent contest, which was a fun mixture of awesomeness and really really funny stuff. Kazbaby1 rules.

Then there were long island ice teas and more tequila and little red anti-hangover pills which I love like a man loves a woman or his car in lieu of a woman.

also: cupcake met the englishman who would make all her dreams come true

Sunday (finally! damn!)
Rockne O'Bannon: you don't answer questions off index cards dude! just no! but you're still cool
Felicity Price: Much better looking than as a princess, and very funny and entertaining for her first convention

Australians just rule in general, man.

BEN AND CLAUDIA: No good way to describe this except to say that Farscape really has some of the coolest people working on it and its fans are really fucking lucky to have them (also vice versa, cuz you know we cool)

Claudia is a devious vixen, Ben Browder and Michael Shanks must kung-fu fight!, and korgg making fanboy love to both of them at the microphone while Ricky Manning gagged in the audience

good times

ok I've gone on way too long here and i'm getting hung over and tired all over again remembering all this stuff. Just gotta say that was one hell of a weekend and I can't wait till next year.

"They shouldn't have killed D'Argo! They should've killed the fucking baby!"

i'm sorry, that's funny no matter what anyone says

children of the corn...

My uncle and his kids came to visit today and actually they're still here, which is unfortunate. I remember when I was little and I went to hang out with my older cousins, it was great. Now that I'm the older one in the equation I just wonder if the older kids thought I was as annoying as my younger cousins are now. They're like monkeys, evil destructive wizard of oz flying type monkeys that run around and scream and hit each other. And they brought a puppy with them this time which is driving my mom insane as it runs around and jumps on stuff.

Ok the puppy can stay.

Saw The Incredibles on wednesday, and hee that was a great movie. I love pixar movies, they totally kick disney's ass all over the place. I won't apologize for liking animated movies either. Finding Nemo rocked my socks. Same goes for the simpsons, family guy, futurama, and pinky & the brain. Not so much powerpuff girls...although it has to be said...buttercup kicks ass.

I feel better than I did this morning, which is strange considering the little hell-spawns are here now. Maybe it's seeing my mom have a meltdown giving me some sort of perspective. No closer to writing anything though, farscape or otherwise.

Also...5 days till burbank! where I will not drink a drop of alcohol because I am not of age and am chock full of those good ol time American moral values

no, not really

Snurched from kazbaby who snurched it from...

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else. This is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

I'm not actually working on any fics at the moment but this looked like fun, and well anything to keep from working you know?

John Crichton and the Wormhole of Doom

John worked frantically at the controls, his breath slipping out between gritted teeth as he tried to maneuver his little guppy of a module out of the way before the giant stone ball came barreling down the wormhole superhighway and splatted him like a bug on an intergalactic windshield.

Peacekeeper Instinct

Aeryn felt his eyes, hard as prowler shielding, on her naked body as she slid the thin silver material off her white skin in the center of the command carrier's anti-infection room and whispered, "Come here and tell me that."

The Ka Father

D'Argo fought back tears and the inexhaustible rage building inside of him as he embraced his only son and whispered, "I know it was you Jothee, you broke my heart, you broke my heart!"


ok I'll stop now. Probably time to work on some real stories

what kind of day has it been?

Well Crap.

It's November 3rd, 2004. Most of the ballots have been counted, the states have been called, the pundits have talked their annoying little asses off for hours, and George W. Bush has been legitimately elected president of the United States (for the first time if you want quibble). I spent the better part of last night in an auditorium full of democrats and republicans as part of my political science class. Students and faculty mixed together in a state of anxiety and ultimately there was both rejoicing and deep deep disappointment. Then I shuffled back to my room and fell asleep in front of CNN, my brain shutting itself after hearing one sports metaphor too many.

I woke up this morning to see the words KERRY CONCEDES plastered under Wolf Blitzer's ugly face and well...crap.

What can I say? Or really what is there to say at this point? NO big legal battle, no constitutional crisis, no last minute alien intervention. In the words of somone (I can't remember who) that I heard last night: "The American people have spoken...the bastards."

I don't want to be all negative. I'm not going to bitch and moan about the way things went because there's really no point to it now. That doesn't mean I'm not unhappy. I'm not going to deny that i'm very disappointed. I worry about the direction Bush has taken us these past 4 years and where he will continue to lead us now that he has his "mandate." I worry about a lot of things that I don't really need to get into here.

All I can do now is hope that dubya proves me wrong, that he manages over these next four years to change my mind about him and show me that he believes in an America with many points of view, not just his own. I honestly don't think that will happen, I guess i'm just not that optimistic.

But I can hope, and I will continue to.

"You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who is standing center stage advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want freedom? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then you can stand up and sing about the land of the free."
