Today was Mum's birthday (I can't tell you how old she is or else I'll have to kill you), so we took her out to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and then for dinner. I also gave her the butterfly cross stitch I'd made; it's not framed yet, but hopefully now I'll be able to get the supplies. I also took pictures as I worked on it, and once it's all done I'll be posting the pictures for everyone's edification/amusement.

I'm more than a little bit of a purist when it comes to movie versions of books, especially the Harry Potter books. I have been...less than pleased with them thus far. I'm not any more pleased with this one (well, more than the last one), but I had a revelation:

I've mentioned the ficathon RemixRedux (at [livejournal.com profile] remixredux09 this year, and the archive, including my fic, just opened up anonymously [see what I did there?]). Basically, the gimmick is that you take a fic written by someone else and remix it: rewrite it from a different perspective, focus on a subplot, rearrange the order, etc. And I think that this is exactly what they've been doing with the films. Focusing and expanding the bits they want, ignoring the bits they don't.

It's convinced me to stop picking them apart, at least. :)

Saw Start Trek with the fam for Mothers' Day. I rather enjoyed it overall, though I thought that the spoilers )

Honestly, my biggest problem was the fact that they didn't have the heavy Kirk/Spock subtext of the original series. But I'm a slasher at heart, I suppose.

The Geekling had prom last night, and he had fun, which is awesome. He's the first member of our branch of the family to go to prom, and I'm glad he wasn't one of the many people who internalizes the hype and then is let down. I intend to pick his brain sometime tomorrow when Mom's out. It's cute; he almost wants to tell them what he was up to.

I made the mistake of going with the 'rents to a bar last night, an experience I do not intend to repeat. We went to a local Irish pub/restaurant for dinner, then stuck around at the bar to listen to the live band. The band was pretty crap, and Mum and Da spent the entire time being subtly hostile toward one another. Add to that the fact that I ache all over and the fact that Da got a Crackberry a few months ago and has terrible phone etiquette, and you can imagine that a terrible time was had by all.

It's been decided that I probably tensed up when I fell, which is why I hurt all over. It's gradually getting better, and the headache went away yesterday, so I'm clearly on the mend. My eye is a vision, but between the fact that it's just the top half of the socket and the obstruction of my glasses frames, I just look like I put eye make-up on one eye and not the other.

Now I'm going to go take my second batch of pills and putter until midnight. I should be working on the second [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest fic (OMG I'm going to miss the second deadline they gave me, I suck so much), but I'm probably just going to go to bed.
melayneseahawk: (utter stupidity)
Every time I start to feel sad about moving out of this apartment, something explodes.

Yesterday, I slept until about 2p, and then talked on the phone with my mom for almost two hours. I went out to the bathroom after, and noticed that the floor in the hall and kitchen seemed dirtier than usual; I mentally wrote that off as having not noticed it over the past few days. Then I opened the door to the bathroom...and stepped on the soaking wet bath mat.

I tossed the mats in the tub (they were drenched), and tried to find the leak. Sink looked fine, toilet looked fine, there wasn't an obvious leak from the ceiling, so I tossed the roommates an e-mail and went back into my room. Met Mom in Silver Spring for dinner and a movie (State of Play, which was really good), and she dropped me back off at like 9:30p.

Came in to see a hole in the wall, and the counter top underneath it had been cleared (with everything piled up in and around the sink). S was in the bathroom, but she told me what had happened.

Apparently, V (landlady) had noticed something wrong with her washing machine upstairs, but decided to use it anyway. Her dad took a look at it and saw that one of the hoses was partially disconnected, and the water had gotten all over the floor and leaked down, through the kitchen, onto our kitchen floor, into Imaginary Roommate's room, down the hall, and into the bathroom and living/dining room. This must have happened early in the day, because the kitchen, hall, and living/dining rooms, which aren't carpeted, had all dried. The mats in the bathroom must have held the water, and a portion of IM's rug was soaked.

And there's another hole in the ceiling. They still haven't patched the hole from the last big leak, which means that you have a lovely, scenic view of the insulation if you sit at the dining room table.

S, obviously, was livid. I keep telling her to insist that V give her her deposit back and move out, but she doesn't think V would actually give her back the money. I'm just glad it'll no longer be my problem after Thursday.

Wound up meeting N and her friend for UpWords after work on Friday, and seeing He's Just Not That Into You with Mum on Saturday. Surprisingly good movie, I have to admit, but horrifyingly hetero-centric. Spoilers ) Still, it was a much better film than I'd expected, and I really liked the ending. Plus, splitting mezza platters with Mum was fun.

Work on Sunday (four hours on bar during the morning rush, with Boss looking over my shoulder) went alright. Proved, at least to myself, that I can still do the job, which is nice. And I managed to get the drinks out faster than the gal on register could ring most of the time, so that's always nice.

Still having fights with the school about various Monologues things, but we won the fight to let us perform at Maryland Day. And the woman knew she was wrong, too, because she started the letter saying that they should have talked to us about content first. :D We're going to do up a draft of the Family FriendlyTM twenty minutes we're going to perform over the next two weeks, and we'll see how it goes.

And, since I can't seem to escape them, I'm listing again today:

Big long crazy-assed weekend. Sheesh.

Saturday I wound up in synagogue, to go to a friend of the family's son's bar mitzvah. I haven't been to shul in at least a year (probably more), but I was mildly amused that I still knew all of the prayers, and could basically do them while my brain went off on a merry romp counting bricks. The rabbi hasn't changed a bit, the congregation is still made up of mostly septuagenarians and above, I don't plan on going back anytime soon. I did have some blather I wanted to say about the rabbi's sermon, but I've forgotten.

Then afterwards I went out driving with Mum, where we did loops in one of the high school's parking lots and then I actually drove on streets. For the first time. Admittedly, it was in the orthodox Jewish neighborhood and just after noon on a Saturday, so there were no cars and no pedestrians, but it was still very exciting as I'm sure you can imagine. Mum kept getting this "my baby's all grown up!" look on her face, though she denied it.

After that I had work, which was terribly boring, so I won't bother talking about it.

Sunday I had work in the morning, and it was horrible. I'm reminded of why I never work mornings: too many people all at once, too many baristas on the floor, and the newbs and idiots tend to work mornings, so that always makes it gobs worse. It's amazing how long a seven-hour shift can feel when 3/4 of it is spent wanting to bang one's head against the wall.

Afterwards, I went out to dinner with the family and some family friends to Marrakesh, a Moroccan restaurant on New York and 7th (N...W, I think). It's not just dinner, it's a whole performance. You're seated on padded benches around low tables, and the food is done communally: a plate in the middle of the table, and everyone eats with their fingers. They do seven courses, each brought out individually, and somewhere in the middle they dim the lights and there's a belly dancer. The decor's amazing, and even the door looks like something out of one of the Arabian Nights stories.

cut for babble about food )

Expensive, but totally worth it.

In utterly unrelated news, I saw Wall-E with the family tonight. I won't talk about it in detail right now (though I totally will tomorrow, I suspect), but let me just say that it was one of the best movies I've even seen. Sweet and romantic and scary and so so sad. I'm not the best judge of these things, but I spent the majority of the movie in tears. I know the response has been mixed, but it's really worth a viewing.

Quick, before I jet, a meme:

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.


[livejournal.com profile] theemdash gave me L weeks ago, and I'm finally getting to it now.

I'm also going to totally cheat and do more than five, since my music collection is kind of ridiculous and eclectic.

La Vie Boheme - Rent A and B
I've got a long, mildly amusing story about my relationship with Rent, but suffice it to say that I used to hate the show but now I'm rather enamored of it and when I'm in a bad mood I tend to turn these tracks up loud and sing along, much to my mother's chagrin.

Lady Diamond - Steeleye Span
I have a completely irrational love for this song, even though it's kind of nasty in the way many ballads from that period are. It actually is a Child ballad (269, if you care), and I totally love the Steeleye Span version of it.

Lament - Into the Woods
If I still acted, I would give my right arm to play the witch in Into the Woods, if only for the opportunity to perform this song. It's on my list of songs I would really love to perform, along with "Aldonza" from Man of La Mancha and Jacques Brel's "If We Only Have Love" in the original French.

The Last Trip Home - Battlefield Band
I have a soft spot for anti-industrial songs like this one. Weird, I know. But pretty.

Late Night Radio - Tom Rush
I've definitely been up at that time of the night, though I don't tend to listen to radio. iPods killed the radio star?

Life is a Highway - Rascal Flatts
Sadly, I can't say I'd heard of this song before it was cool (ie. before Cars).

Life Upon the Wicked Stage - Show Boat
So wrong, and yet so right. This is the recording from the My Favorite Broadway - the Leading Ladies show a few years back, and we recorded it on VHS, copied the sound to cassette, then digitized it to .mp3, so please forgive the crackles. :P

The Lighthouse's Tale - Nickel Creek
For the last *mumble* years, I've been trying to write my NaNoWriMo based on this song. I've since decided I should probably turn it into a short story and the hell with it. Some day it'll get written, I swear!

A Little Brains, a Little Talent - Damn Yankees
Probably the only show I've been in that I still like any of the music from. This isn't the song that convinced my Big Gay Senior Steve that I could act (it was actually "Whatever Lola Wants"), but I'd love to perform this one, too. Assuming I ever learn sex appeal.

Luck Be a Lady - Guys and Dolls
A few of you will remember the year I dressed in drag to sing this song for a theatre class, after spending two weeks getting my guy friends to teach me how to stand like a man. Also a Capella. I torture myself, I know.

And, because I couldn't resist:

Leaving on a Jet Plane - John Denver (and also by Jefferson Airplane)
Extra bonus song x2. Little known fact: I sang this song a Capella at my middle school graduation, and there were tears streaming down my face at the time. Like one person on my flist was actually there for that.

(You see what I did there? :P)

I got an A- in ARTH and a B+ (don't get that, need to ask about it) in EDCP. So that means I'm going back to school and I don't owe the 'rents the other $650 for summer tuition. *mad happy spastic dance* This also means it's very likely I'm going to the con this fall, but that's another thing.

Need to rant about the HP movie, but not now. Now I need to eat, clean things, and read (three down, three to go, and I'm behind). Why did I pick up that shift for tomorrow night?

"Don't be so melayne, homie."

Taken from the randomly generated Infinite Teen Slang Dictionary.

And some links:

a great (and spoilery!) pic of Will Turner from PotC: AWE

holter monitor =/= cyborg (plus my amusing comment thread in said post

another funny [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes, this one about Massachusetts and gay marriage

And this is why I ship Mac/PC, even though it's embarrassing.

Alright, enough putting off this bed thing. Ta!

Finally read Good Omens; oh, I am in love with Neil Gaiman. That's all I really have to say about that. (Corrugated iron and fish! Gay as a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide! Flaming Bentley! Ok, done now.)

Also watch both Mrs. Henderson Presents and Dirty Dancing simultaneously with the 'rents (don't ask...). The former is hilarious, plus it has naked people, so that's always fun. The latter I still haven't seen straight through, but I'm closer. It must also be noted that I'm rather pathetic, since Dirty Dancing makes me whimpery. Yes, I'm very silly.

There were other things I was going to say, but I've forgotten. Ah, well.

Ok, I think I've figured out the method to my brain's madness: CLAS170 is material I already know, so all I have to do is the assignments and go to discussion and I'll be set, hence my skipping lecture; ANTH240 lectures are put up online, so I don't have to go to them, but discussions are still imperative; THET112 is a valueless course for practical application theatre, so it takes a lot of effort for me to get my ass over to it. This is all very well in a purely theoretical sense, but it's really detrimental academically, especially with THET112: we have a midterm tomorrow and I don't know what it's on (but I can ask someone), I've missed the last four classes, I missed one assignment entirely and am turning another in late. This is starting to sound way too much like last year. *shivers*

In other news, the concert and Rocky Horror on Saturday were spiffy. The concert included a Stravinsky piece (Symphony of Psalms) that I rather liked; Stravinsky doing psalms is pretty strange, but I really liked the orchestration, especially the oboe and flute duet at the beginning of the second movement. The Rocky audience was pretty pathetic, but a good time was had by all. [livejournal.com profile] starkravingsane and I embarrassed the guy friend of mine we met there, so that's always fun. We're going to be going out to dinner and seeing The Distance from Here on Friday, so that should be fun, too.

Read Richard III last night for THET112 and got myself thoroughly confused. Having Da around is really awesome sometimes; I called the house at like 9p last night and we spent half an hour going over the family trees and orders of succession so I understood it all. Histories are weird.

Really need to get cracking on [livejournal.com profile] picfor1000, the various Frankenmixes, and other miscellaneous writing things. *pokes muse with pokey-stick*

Now I should really copy/recreate those ANTH240 notes. But first, a meme.

The concert included a Stravinsky piece (Symphony of Psalms) that I rather liked; Stravinsky doing psalms is pretty strange, but I really liked the orchestration, especially the oboe and flute duet at the beginning of the second movement. The Rocky audience was pretty pathetic, but a good time was had by all. [livejournal.com profile] starkravingsane and I embarrassed the guy friend of mine we met there, so that's always fun. We're going to be going out to dinner and seeing The Distance from Here on Friday, so that should be fun, too.

Read Richard III last night for THET112 and got myself thoroughly confused. Having Da around is really awesome sometimes; I called the house at like 9p last night and we spent half an hour going over the family trees and orders of succession so I understood it all. Histories are weird.

Really need to get cracking on [livejournal.com profile] picfor1000, the various Frankenmixes, and other miscellaneous writing things. *pokes muse with pokey-stick*

Now I should really copy/recreate those ANTH240 notes. But first, a meme.
