goddamn that is awesome

"Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, a village on the island of Anglesey in Wales, is the longest place name in the Welsh language. 51 letters long in the Welsh alphabet, the name can be translated as 'St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave.'"

~from Wikipedia's entry on "Longest Words"

Welsh people are so fucking cool. All the time.

Have you ever gone campi​ng?​​
Yes. Never again, I say. Never. Again.

When'​​s the last time you went swimm​ing?​​
Holy mother of god---over a year ago. That is sick and wrong and needs to be remedied. (hmmm---perhaps I have found my activity for that three-hour time suck on Mondays and Wednesdays that I never, ever practice in because it's too daunting an amount of time!)

Have you read the whole​ serie​s of Twili​ght?​​
Almost. My brains started leaking out of my ears in the fourth chapter of the fourth book, so I read cleolinda's recap instead. Much funnier, miles better written, and altogether more enjoyable.

Yes. It sucked.

Do you colle​ct anyth​ing?​​
Not really, unless you count BPAL, which I don't, and organic skincare, which... I'd have to agree with. And bad movies, worse TV shows (boxed sets and on my computer), bizarre music and SHOES. THERE. I COLLECT SHOES. DEFINITELY.

God, no.

Do you like cornb​read?
Om nom nom nom.

Do you like to have some fun in your life?​​
Yes... but I'm not a party girl. In fact, I wish I could have MORE fun. My idea of fun is an entertaining TV show. On my couch. In my pajamas. With my cat. OH GOD SAVE ME.

Does rap music​ annoy​ you?
99% percent of it definitely does.

Can you type fast?​​

Are you a sensitive person?​​
Yes and no. I'm totally fine with being an abhorrently rude bitch, but small things really get to me.

Do you know anyon​e named​ Mike?
My brother, among others.

Have you ever been chase​d by a dog?

Ever broke​n a bone?​​
My left pinkie toe twice and my right pinkie toe once. Motherfuckers. I hear we're going to evolve to not have them. Oh, also a bone in the top of my left foot (it was a hairline fracture) and my left thumb (same).

Do you like the show Real World​?​​

Have you ever given​ money​ to a homeless person?​​
No. There is literally a homeless shelter two blocks away from my college. Free food, free blankets, free clothes, a free place to sleep... that's more than I can offer a homeless person.

Last thing​ you ate?
Chessman cookies! Which followed a delicious and nutritious dinner of noodles, not-chicken nuggets and salad. Mmmmm.

Have you ever gone a whole​ day witho​ut food?​​

Favor​ite kind of ice cream​?​​
Mint chocolate chip, pumpkin, coffee.

Is your hair curly​ or strai​ght?​​
Straight with one big wave in the middle. Damn it.

Do you think​ Rober​t Pattinson who plays​ Edwar​d on Twili​ght is cute?​​
What is your mad obsession with Twilight? Goddamn, I mean, are you a fourteen-year-old girl? It's not that good, sugar pie. Go pick up a real fucking book with some goddamn substance. That said, yes, I would totally do him. Especially since he cut that shitmop of hair. (Caveat: in the movie, he basically looks like an asshole the whole time. So I'm going to say "no to Twilight Rob," "yes to musician Rob." RELEASE A RECORD AND I WILL BE YOUR GROUPIE.)

entries re: emo (hermione)

midnight and all's well

So, to make a long story short, my cat impaled himself on something and now has seven staples in his side and has to wear an E-collar on his head that is severely traumatizing to his manhood, but we're pretty sure he's going to be okay. Kat is driving herself insane over it, and honestly being extremely melodramatic about the whole thing, considering it was just another episode of Frankly Our Cat Is A Bit Silly (perhaps the season finale, or the season opener, but still, he has been very silly in this way before). She's flouncing around all "I WILL NOT GO TO SCHOOL!" and "HE MUST BE GIVEN HIS MEDICATION IN A TIMELY FASHION!" and we're all just like, look, the more high-strung you are, the more he will latch on to that and be high-strung as well. Let's all calm down, give him a few pats on the head, and let him sleep it off.

That's not to say I'm not worried; I really love my cat and I will be devastated if this doesn't sort itself out. Today I went upstairs for the quickest shower ever in the history of quick showers, and when I came back downstairs he had jumped the baby gate and climbed three stairs, neither of which he was supposed to do, and was curled up on the kitchen carpet giving me the (sedated) stink-eye. If he's well enough to do that, I'm pretty sure he's out of the life-threatening portion of the ordeal. Of course I will help take care of him and feed him his kittymeds, but animals are really sensitive to the moods of the people they're around, and if we're calm and optimistic, he will be too.

In other news, ...well... there really isn't too much other news. Work today was all right---we absolutely destroyed our month and landed in the +$3.50/hour bonus bracket, so hopefully we will all be getting nice fat checks next week :)

Plus, I went to Sephora and indulged in a little retail therapy, which was nice. (I did a little of that yesterday, too---when Kat and I were at Whole Foods, I bought another bottle of Snake Oil and a really lovely toner from Pangea Organics as I was finally running out of Tea Tree Water. Then, John and Kathleen and I all went to Café Intermezzo for dessert and coffee, and I ended up treating, because I love my friends, and they are way more broke than I am.)

Other than that, not much to report. I am going to be really good about not spending money this week. Go Team Frugal!
