...I guess I have things to say?

Um, okay, let's start with Buffy this time. I finished s3! )


Finishing S3 actually took a little longer than anticipated, though, because in the middle, my parents and I flew out to Seattle to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and little nephews! Because my nephews have their birthdays so close together (if you'll recall), we just had a joint birthday party for both of them - at the Pacific Science Center (and dinosaur themed!). It was pretty great, and the whole trip was a lot of fun (and...featured a lot of Legos, idek), but ultimately we were only out there for about 5 days. But it's okay, though, since they're going to come over to the East Coast to visit, in May! So, y'know, EXCITE.


Otherwise the only other big thing going on rn is my working at the zoo! Which, I am pleased to report, I am getting more confident in as I get more knowledgeable about How Things Work There. I even handled some mealworms bare-handed yesterday (lulz, this sounds so dumb, but, remember, WORMS ARE THE WORST) - though it def helped that I was feeding them to a little African Hedgehog (named Sonic. TRUE STORY) crawling around on my lap.

But the other, more important, imo, part of doing this internship is, I'm learning about what parts of behind-the-scenes work I like, and what parts I don't as much, and how I can use this experience to further build my plans for the future. ...actually, it's kind of funny, my interviewer, at the beginning of all this, said basically the same thing - and she also said that I could do the Animal Care internship (obviously), but it also sounded like I'd want to consider working in the Education department. Aaaaand I GUESS SHE KNEW WHAT SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT, because guess what internship I want to do next (this current one ends in March, but we were told that we could either stay on, in the position, or transfer to another internship, and a lot of people end up doing one or the other)!!

Read more... )

And, uh, also, I was looking around the internets, to see what kind of experience various people got before getting their current Animal Care positions, and, um...you need a lot...?? Which makes sense, I mean, they're not just going to let you take care of wild animals right off the bat, but, like - I majored in English, you guys; even just from a What Am I More Currently Prepared For standpoint...Iiiiii'm going with education (...I feel like I should disclaim here, though, I still don't want to be a school teacher!! WORKING IN MUSEUMS/ZOOS/AQUARIUMS 4 LYPHE~~).

HAY KIDS.

Soooo my Seattle family has come and gone, and - while it was pretty crazy, ngl - it was a lot of fun. All the same, I find that generally, just about the time when we're about to part ways anyway, I find myself desperately in need of some quiet. Like, of course I love my nephews and all, and love spending time with them, just - sometimes I DON'T want to be woken up by the sounds of a 2 and 4 year old chasing the cat, and the dog chasing them (in order to give them doggy kisses. Lots and loooots of doggy kisses).

But, so, yeah, now I do have a little break - well, as much of a break as it can be, with a whooooole bunch of stuff I've got to finish up at work (it's mostly boring stuff, like, entering data into Excel spreadsheets, which is why I've been procrastinating), and then Christmas and New Year's coming up, right (I still have no idea what I'm doing for NYE! But I do have a pretty good handle on what I want to get everyone for Christmas, even if I haven't actually bought anything yet. So...that's something).
And then, since one of my nephews' birthdays is in the middle of January, and the other is in the (relative) beginning of February, my parents and I are going to head over to Seattle right in the middle, at the end of January, so we can be there for the babies' combined birthday party (they WERE going to have separate parties, I think, but since they both want a superhero theme anyway...). So that should be fun, if ridiculously cold.

The OTHER fun thing (hopefully) happening in January is this: I start my new internship at the Philadelphia Zoo! \o/
...yeahhh, that was the one application I actually managed to get out, recently (and it was VERY INVOLVED, okay, it was a lot of work), and I had an interview on Friday, and I GOT IT, and I AM PUMPED )


Wow, idk, that was a lot of blathering. ...Basically, I AM EXCITE, YOU GUYS, even though people have already tried to tell me that maybe I should be looking for the kind of Experience that involves sitting at a desk and staring at a computer screen (well, not in so many words, I mean, but -- essentially). FUCK THAT, you guys, I cannot WAIT to be at the Children's Zoo in January in my old sneakers and khaki pants (that...I totally don't own. *mental note to go shopping*) and zoo-issued shirt and nametag, meeting the people who work there and hanging out with the animals (...even the creepy-eyed goats. Though SOMEONE IS GOING TO HAVE TO TELL ME WHY THEIR EYES LOOK LIKE THAT).


AUUUUUUUUUGHHHHH IDK IDK YOU GUYS I JUST GOT RIDICULOUSLY PUMPED. LIFE ADVENTURE, YOU BEGIN NOW. ....or, in January, anyway. SAME DEAL.

HEY KIDS. Have a meme!

book meme! )

I probably left out a TON of books I've read/I love, but this was just sort of off the top of my head meme completion, soooo.




...idk, my internet presence has been kind of spotty these days (even on Tumblr! GASP, SHOCK AND HORROR, I know, right), but I miss LJ ~most of all~. So here is me, making an effort!

In rl news, I just sent out an internship application this morning (...yes, just one. LOOK, okay, it took me a MONTH to get this one together; the other ones are GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT)! WISH ME LUCK, OMG.

Also, my family from Seattle (brother, sister-in-law, two nephews) is coming to visit soon, for Thanksgiving! I AM SO PSYCHED, YOU GUYS - like, more than I thought I'd be, even. I mean, obviously I love them all, and love spending time with them, but, like...idk, you know, you just get a little sick of your family, after a while, and the babies are kind of a handful...
But idk, guys, I am SUPER PUMPED. I think it's probably because I've been busier at work, these days, and also, for the past week, my mom's been in India (for my cousin's wedding), so I've been holding down the fort, and IT IS TERRIBLE, EVERYONE NEEDS SOMETHING ALL THE TIME (lulz, Hufflepuff I am not). ...also, I miss my mommy. So I think I'm just really excited for, you know, relaxing at home, with everyone there - like, uh, these days I am mostly just talking to my pets...? - and then, also, like, we generally do exciting things with the kids, like hit up museums/the zoo/aquarium, or bake things, or do arts and craft-y projects, or...idk, fun, low-pressure stuff. Sooooo yeah.


Oh, and, speaking of things I'm excited for, the Quidditch World Cup is this weekend! SO PUMPED, OMG. [livejournal.com profile] bohemu and I went last year, too, and it was AMAZING AND EPIC, and this year promises to be even AMAZINGER AND EPICER (...shhhh). I've already got plans to go, both days, totally obnoxiously decked out in Gryffindor apparel (thaaaank you Pottermore, for VALIDATING MY LIFE \o/), and we are going to watch some awesome games, hear some awesome commentary (HOPEFULLY; the commentators from last year were hilarious, and we will die a little inside if they aren't back this time), listen to some awesome wizrock bands (there are a whoooole bunch playing, but Harry and the Potters have my heart forever), and, you know, probably have some awesome fun-time booze-times at some point.


OH, ALSO! I totally forgot to mention this before, BUT! About...a month ago, I guess?? I got my hair cut! I mean, like, CUT cut - it was around shoulder-length, before, and now it's pixie/boy short. I like it a lot! It's a LOT easier to manage (hello, super-thick, super-curly hair), and I can still do things with it (...well, I mean, less things than before, but still!), without feeling like I HAVE to (...because otherwise, before, it used to just be EATING MY FACE), etc, etc. Plus, now I look a lot cooler, imo.
I will try to remember to take some pictures to show you guys! I mean, I have some pictures of me, since I've had it cut, buuuut they're not great, for showing off my hair. So I will try to take some new ones (NOTE TO SELF: REMEMBER TO DO THIS)!


ummmmm, so yeah! NOW I AM GOING HOME (lulz, I'm currently at work. Not actually working, obviously! WOOPZ).

Hello hello, I have returned!

I am glad to be back, but Seattle was a lot of fun -- hanging with the nephews is always great, even if they are total monkeys (well, they're 2 and 4 years old, WHAT CAN YOU DO).

Camping was also fun! )

Soooo, yeah. Other than that, I went to a bunch of museums with the kids, ran around a couple parks, pretended to be various animals/dinos/fish, and read a whoooole lot of books (mostly picture books, but I got through a couple of my own, too!). Overall verdict: FUN!

But yeah, I am glad to be back, with my kitty and puppy and continuous internets and TV with more than basic cable (not that there was that much time to watch TV or go online anyway, there, but still)!
Soooo yeah, HELLO! How have all of your weeks been?

~*HIATUS TIME*~


Uh, yeah, so! Tomorrow morning (early, early tomorrow morning -- I have to wake up at 5:30, ugh), I am heading off to Seattle, to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and two baby nephews (...well, they're 2 and 4, now, but they'll always be babies to me~)!!

...I haaaaaate flying, and it seems a lot easier to just stay here at home and hang around in my pajamas and read and stream things from Netflix, BUT of course I love hanging out with my nephews, so it'll be fun, I can already tell! I think we're mostly just going to be hitting up the museums and the zoo and all that, but also my sister-in-law was appalled when she heard I'd never been camping, so we are apparently going to do that, too!

So, yeah, I will be back -- well, I'll be back next Tuesday (the 28th!) evening, buuuut tbh, it'll probably be the 29th, before I rly get back into the internet swing of things. I mean, I will probably have internet time in Seattle, too, buuuuut certainly nowhere near the amount of time I hang around the interwebz at home. So, uh, until I get back, HAVE FUN, HOLD DOWN THE FORT, DON'T BLOW ANYTHING UP WHILE I'M GONE. And let me know what I miss, too, here and on Tumblr!! BYE KIDS, ILU~~

Happy New Year, bbz.

♥ ♥


This year I just sat at home with the family, but we had a sort of mini-party - my mom got some noisemakers and a bag of balloons, which I then got the idea of drawing different characters that my nephews know on. Right now we have a Nemo, Piglet, Lightning McQueen, and some sort of Cookie Monster/Grover hybrid thing, idek. Anyway, it turned out to be a lot of fun. We made some construction paper party hats, and played with toy cars and dinosaurs, and so, considering I generally ring in the new year at some random party I really don't want to be at, this was really great.

Anyway, now I'm super tired, so I'm about to head off to bed. Rohan (my older nephew, for those who don't remember - he's going to be 3 on the 20th!!) wakes me up every morning promptly at 10 (today, it was so I could come out and play in the snow with him, which was nice, even if I was still half-asleep), so I've been working on actually getting to sleep at a reasonable time. So goodnight on my end, but also, again, happy 2010!!!<3333


ETA: Okay, this is from last year, but I felt so compelled to add this here, I actually got myself out of bed and came back downstairs to the computer:




...I haven't edited a post like this in a while, wow.
splits_thesky: (misc: kind of a big deal)
O hay, kids. Uh, I'm baaack, btw!! For those of you not following [livejournal.com profile] saveaplace, well, A, my pictures are up: http://picasaweb.google.com/splitsthesky , and B, London was aMAAAAAAAAAAzing, and I totally want to go back, right this second. This morning, coming in to school, I kept wondering what'd happen if I just jumped up and got off at the next stop, somehow got myself to the airport, and just bought a ticket across the Atlantic right then and there.

Unfortunately, I couldn't (though, man, I wanted to. LONDOOOOOOON<3333333), though, because, oh yes, school. Fall semester started today, and was probably the least stressful semester beginning I've ever had. One, because, I mean, I was just in summer classes two weeks ago, so it's not like I've really been away from this lovely institution, and two, I'm pretty sure I'm at the point where I just don't care anymore. I mean, I don't hate school or anything (other than, y'know, the work and all, lulz), but I'm a senior now, I've been in school almost all my life, and at Temple for four years now, Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters aaaall included, and I've got this shit down so that I don't even worry anymore about whether the outfit I put together in the morning looks cute for a good first impression or if I know where all my classes are, or anything like that. Let me tell you, the night before every year of high school used to be so stressful for me. I went to school with basically the same kids I'd known since kindergarten, but I was always so worried about everything. I have no idea why, now, but it happened. Whereas, today, I just sort of stomped through my day, rocking it, I mean, but also sort of just, "I'm here, I'm getting my shit done. Everyone else, I could not give a crap". You know (not to get too philosophical-y, but), I do feel like I've changed since I've come to college, but it was really less changing and more just working with who I already was. Now I know what I'm doing (uhhh, well, I know what I'm doing here at Temple, anyway, once I graduate I'm going to be lost), I've got a great support team (I used to feel so awkward about having such few friends. Now, I still only have about 3 people I'd consider my BFFs, but they're amazing, and, honestly, they're enough), and, y'know, I'm certainly still failboating my way through life, but now I'm at least learning to work it, I think. So yeah, thanks, college! And okay, fine, I will probably miss you, come next May. ...Although, maybe I won't! I mean, it's not like I'm going to stop being the same person, just because I graduate. IDK, whatever.

ANYWAY. Speaking of my very good friends, a couple of days ago [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 and I had our anniversary (lulz, well, "anniversary")!! SO. HAAAAAAAAAYY BB, HAPPY BELATED ANNIVERSARY!!!!<333333 *CONFETTI!* I wanted to make a fanmix or something, but I still haven't made it back to my apartment, so...I couldn't. But definitely on it was going to be this song, so, um, there you go.
So basically, Lia, THANK YOU. Thank you for being an awesome friend, for being my twin, for always sticking around to cheer me up when I need it, for laughing with me at the most ridiculous things, until we both totally can't breathe, for completely vindicating my even making an LJ, and for...you know, everything. Like, thanks for not actually being a creepy 40-year-old stalker, because that would have made all those times we've met up reaaally weird, and also, totally confirmed all of my mom's suspicions about the internet. So yes, THANKS, and ILU, and also, we need to get a move on on our Halloween costumes, because it's almost September, and we NEED to rock that parade, hello. :D

...I feel like I had more to say here. IDK - it was my mom's birthday yesterday (HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, MOMMY, even though you will never read this, and also, I totally wished you actually on time yesterday)! I only saw my first full episode of CSI:NY this past weekend, but I also discovered it makes me ridiculously happy (EDDIE CAHILL LOOKS LIKE SEAN MAHER, COME ON. Also, Danny is adorable, and Melina Kanakaredes is rockin' it for the curly-haired chicks!!)! Schuyler Fisk is adorable and I want her to be my girlfriend (and there miiiight be a pimping post about her soon, so watch out for that, maybe)! WOOOOOO.
splits_thesky: (Default)
Hey, so, turns out the summer is just as hectic as school times!!

For good reason, though - my cousin got married on Sunday (technically, my second cousin, but we've lived about 10 minutes away from them for, like, 20-odd years, so they're pretty much my immediate family)! And, to make matters more exciting, she got married to one of my parents' (and her parents', as a result) really good friends' son. So, while there was technically a "bride's side" and a "groom's side", everyone knew everyone, and it was just good times all around. We had to help get everything ready (because, since we're brown, we had to have about a million different events), so it was craaaazy hectic, and the weather decided to be craaaazy humid all the while, but it was still, overall, good times.
Oh, and it's a tradition for everyone to get mehndi(/henna) put on their hands (supposed to be auspicious), so my left hand currently looks like this. It's fading fast, though, which is making me sad. :(

Also, because of the wedding, my brother, sister-in-law and my nephews flew in from San Francisco!! So they're here for a while now, which is great, but which also gives me no time, because I usually spend my days running around after some nephew (well, actually running around after the 2-year-old, metaphorically running around after the 3-month-old). It's fun, I mean, and I love these kids to death, but it doesn't exactly give you a lot of free time.

I've also been listening to my new favorite band, Parachute, of course! They're going to be playing a show in NY on Saturday, which I was going to go to, but it turns out I can't, because I have to nephew-sit the whole weekend (ironically enough, because my brother and sister-in-law are going up to NY to visit some friends). BUT, I would stroooongly urge all of you nearby to go check them out, because they are AWESOME, and you will love it. I promise.

Anyway, bedtime beckons now, so I must away. Hopefully I'll be able to snag more internet time, but until then, I'm at least grabbing enough time to be able to keep up with my flist, so keep on keeping on with all your wonderful posting, kidlets!! ♥♥
splits_thesky: (misc: &big big city nights)
Oh hay, I'm back, btw!!

San Francisco was awesome and baby-filled! I spent the large majority of my week helping supervise the nephews, but we also went out to a bunch of cool places, like the totally AWESOME newly-opened museum, and the beach, which was GORGEOUS. Actually, I have some beach pictures I was going to share with y'all, but those'll probably come in a different entry. But they're pretty pretty, if I do say so myself!!

Anyway, so what have you guys been up to?? I read my flist a little bit, but there's no way I can catch up on an entire week's worth of entries. So def let me know what I missed! Or even if nothing super-exciting happened to you, how are you, lovelies?? Good, I hope!

Also, I've been randomly realizing things I miss horribly, but for some reason didn't even realize until now. Like summer - I mean, I love fall and winter and snow and all, but I can't wait for, y'know, flowers, and sunny days and being able to wear pretty skirts and all (the seasons tend to be juuust as long as I need them to be. Like, watch, come August I'll be going on about how much I want crisp leaves and cool breezes and being able to wear boots and jackets and layers). Also, I missed my house something awful (sounds weird, but I've been at my apartment in Philly, and then I was on the west coast last week, right), which I totally didn't realize until a series of random events translated into my staying at home this week (& commuting to school). I totally just sat around and watched Disney Channel this evening, it was glorious (that's the other thing, I miss TV, you guys. I mean, I can download or stream things in my apartment, but it's not quiiite the same as sitting down and watching, with commercials and the ability to channel surf and the inevitability of watching completely RIDICULOUS programming).

Oh, also, I did indeed take Watchmen with me, and managed to finish it in SF! Haven't seen the movie yet, so I'm avoiding all your reviews for now (and everything else, actually - I just never got around to watching the preview when it first came out, and so now it's turned into me actually making an active effort to avoid commercials and all, so it can all be fresh and new for me). But I, hopefully, will be able to make a trek to see it this weekend! EXCITEDFACE. :D

Anyway, so yes, what's going on with you all?? Oh, and happy early St. Patrick's Day, guys!! ♥♥
splits_thesky: (oc: that's what i'm saying)
Hey, so, hiatus time again! GUESS WHY. Thaaaat's right, I'm heading off to San Francisco to visit the nephew brigade (...it can be a brigade if there're two now, right??)!!

I'm not actually taking a laptop this time, but I miiiight manage to peek into the flist every so often...?? Buuuuut I might not. So be good, kids! And def let me know if something SUPER EXCITING happens! I AM COUNTING ON YOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!

I'll be back next Saturday, after a week of nephew-shenanigating and comic-reading (Watchmen is coming with me on the plane tomorrow! THIS IS MY EXCITED FACE). TRY NOT TO MISS ME TOO MUCH, GUYS. :DD

HAY GUYZ

I don't think I ever told y'all my sister-in-law was pregnant again, but well, she was!! Note I say "was", because, that's right, there is now baby!!!

He was born at 12:16 this morning, 8 pounds 7 ounces, and his name is Devin Andrew (...well, Andrew's his middle name), which is amaaaazing, because it can mean both "divine", which, hi, so does my name, and "descendant of the dark-haired one", which, first of all, is true, and second of all, sort of ties in with his older brother's name, Rohan, which means "red-haired".

I don't get to see him for a while, since they're all in California and all, but my brother (...the other one) is going to be there this weekend for work, so he can report back! And then I'm going to visit over spring break, which should be awesomeeee!!! YAAAAAAAAYYYYY :DDD

Hey guys, happy Thanksgiving!! Or happy Thursday (and almost weekend!), to those of you not celebrating!

My brother and sister-in-law and little nephew (he's almost TWO, can you believe??) are here, from San Francisco, and my other brother's coming over soon, to complete the fam! This year, for, wow, maybe the first time ever, we're actually doing Thanksgiving here at our place, so it's pretty much cooking-palooza right now. I (as always - because it's preeeetty much the only thing I can cook) am in charge of the brownies. They're deliiiicious, if I do say so myself (the secret is: butter! SHHHHHH DON'T TELL).

Anyway, have a great day, everyone! I, of course, am thankful for all of YOU. True fax, I would not be the super-awesome person I am (and, trust me, I AM. :D) if it weren't for all y'all! ♥♥

I have returned!!
Seattle was great (and sunny, what up!), if a little hectic (we were 9 adults, 2 babies, and a dog). My nephew continues to be adorable, by the way. He has a whole repertoire of animal sounds he does (I taught him 'frog' while we were there!), and he can identify various body parts. Also, though he can say a couple words, he signs a looooot - and it's kind of great, all us adults were walking around doing his signs for things unconsciously by the end of the week. :D

Anyway, I'm glad to be back, though. So, how have all of you been? What's been going on, both fandom and otherwise?? Fill me in!

Hey, so, hiatus time again!!
Tomorrow afternoon, the 'rents and I fly out to Seattle, to visit my cousin, who just had a baby girl a couple months ago. So we'll see them, and then my brother and sister-in-law and little nephew are coming up from San Francisco, so we're all going to hang out there (and do what, I'm not exactly sure, since we did all the touristy stuff last time we went. I guess just play with the babies...??).
Anyway, so I'll be gone for a week, but, like my previous hiatus-making trips across the country, I doubt I'll have much internet time until I get back. So be good, kids! I'll expect updates on all your lives when I return.

Oh, and, completely unrelated, I'm all caught up on How I Met Your Mother (just in time for the end of the season, way to space THAT out, Divya)!! Which I only started watching...on the 10th?? I think so. So that's, what, 64 episodes in 10 days?? ...Come on, that's gotta be some kind of record.

Anyway, so, that's all. BYE KIDS, SEE YOU SOON!!! ♥

I CAN HAS

splits_thesky: (dps: i'm still here)
I HAVE A COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \o/ *TICKER TAPE PARADE*

It's my brother's old desktop, and it took fucking AAAAAAGES to get working (basically, everything that could go wrong, DID), and transferring even just all my music took foreeeeeeeeverrrrr.

BUT NOW!!! All my surviving stuff is on it, and it has an internet connection, and the speakers work (not very well, but still), and the resolution doesn't make me want to tear my hair out (uhhh, don't ask), and it is here, set up in my room, and AISUHDASIDUHASID I CAN HAS, YOU GUYS, I CAN HAS!!!!!!!!
*sniff* I think this is the happiest day of my life.

I very HIGHLY doubt my brother gave this computer a name, so I am now! And it is Lewis Kingston, after a one Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III. BECAUSE, see, it's been around for a while, and at one point people decided it was kind of lame (in comparison to my brother's new Macbook, I mean, and so this desktop sat in the basement for YEARS), but it's still chuggin' along, albeit with some issues. SO.

HAY GUYZ, I'M BACK.

San Fran was sunny and awesome! My nephew turned one with a fabulous Winnie-the-Pooh themed birthday party (mostly I say "fabulous" because I mainly organized it, lolz)! He was kinda sick most of the time we were there, but still always cheerful! So that was great, except for now I have a fever. Which sucks. But it's nothing some Tylenol can't fix!

Also, classes start tomorrow. I'm not really looking forward to waking up early, especially since I'm still on California time, but hopefully my classes will be fun...??? CROSS YOUR FINGERS.

Anyway, that's it. What'd I miss? Update me on your lives! ♥
splits_thesky: (oc: that's what i'm saying)
Hey guyzzz, it's hiatus time again!!
I am, again, going to San Francisco to visit my brother&sister-in-law&nephew (for my nephew's first birthday, OMGGGG).
I leave tomorrow morning (I have to wake up EARLY, yuck), and will be back on the...21st, I think?? I'm pretty sure, anyway, because my classes start on the 22nd, so.

So yeah, my mom's bringing her laptop, but again, I don't know how much internetz time I'll have. I'll try to be around if I can, though! But if anything big happens you feel I should know about, drop me a comment! I may not be able to respond until I get back, but I'll most probz at least see it.


Sooo yeah, see you guys soon, I guess! BE GOOD (and READ THESE BOOOOOOKSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!)!!

splits_thesky: (sga: in the leg!)
wow wtf, how is everyone still awake?? I mean, I know it's SATURDAY NIGHT and all, but really. sleep, munchkins!! I have no idea why I just said that, so don't ask.
my brother and his wife and their baby and her parents (uh, my sister-in-law's, that is) were here most of the day today (oh, I'm at home for the weekend, I don't think I mentioned that). the baby slept through pretty much the entire visit. soooo yeah, I'm willing to bet even he's up right now. ooh, but! they might still change, but as of right now, his eyes are - well, like a steel grey, I suppose. it is EXCITING!! if my eyes can't be grey, I sure as hell am going to live vicariously through my nephew.

I was going to watch a couple episodes of SGA, but then I got lost in [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon's SGA fic, especially her "Farm in Iowa" AU, and you should all go read it now because it is amazing and there is a kid! who is adorable, might I add, and rodney and john. and you can't go wrong with rodney and john. I feel like that should rhyme. whatever.

um so anyway that's it, I think, I just wanted to rec that to you all and tell you that I am now a big bundle of shmoopy glee, and possibly the most content I've been - well, in a while, anyway. I also want a ham sandwich (uh, thanks to this fic, that I read many HOURS ago, just btw), but I've already brushed my teeth! plus I don't think we actually have any ham in the house. or dijon mustard, for that matter, and everyone knows you can't have a ham sandwich without dijon mustard. but not grey poupon, that stuff smells.

okay, that's really it now. I am off to snuggle into my blankets and pretend I too, have a snuggly john. KBYE FLIST, ILU.


O HAY LOOK IT'S 3:33 AM MAKE A WIIIIIISH!!!!!!!
