wait, you mean to tell me i have a lj? and i can post in it?  
Sometimes I actually feel that way - too wrapped up in what else is on lj to remember to make my own contributions to lj. 

Too, my contribution to lj right now consists of massive delight over the signups at summer_of_giles .  It continually amazes me that fandom is filled with so many fantastic people, and it's so nice to grin my head off at the number of people coming back to sign up again this year, and then grin my head off in an entirely different way at the new people who are signing up.

Ok, and this post.

There was much doing of things this weekend
  • going to Friday's lecture on Korea
  • vet visit where the dog's ears finally got ok'ed for business,
  • lunch/afternoon margarita with some friends of the boy's parents (who were delightful company), 
  • cleaning the house a little (hey, the new vacuum actually works to pick up dog hair)
  • reading the rest of my two theory books to help with the presentation tomorrow,
  • watching my two films (narrowed it down to two) for my presentation tomorrow,
  • installing the correct software to be able to screencap and bookmark said films (for my presentation tomorrow... sensing a pattern here?)
  • picking up D. from the airport to welcome her back home
  • dropping by the neighborhood bbq to introduce ourselves to the actually nice people living three houses over
  • finishing my abstract for the Asian Studies Regional conference
  • getting together with my panel to finish our panel proposal for same conference
  • working on my translation

not too shabby for a weekend's worth of work, I think.

Wait, i can do picture goodness of Giles? *SIGNS UP*
And because you're my friendly mod, you can assign me a day after July 1 and therefore in my winter break? :D

How is your translating going? Better than mine i hope - it's taken me an hour and a half to get through ten bloody lines of Odyssey.

really? DUDE that's awesome! and I can assign you a day after July 1, don't you worry (though darling, will you go and leave me a message actually at the comm, that way i don't forget?)

*pets you* Oh I have those days! I'm actually correcting the things I did two weeks ago, so it's even more painful - spent about an hour twisting myself up about 1 sentence!

God i never even thought about corrections. Though we go over it in class so anything i get wrong i usually fix (and then forget so i make the same mistake again two weeks later).

Message left. Summer of Giles, wahey!

*Very* productive!

I'm always very happy to see you post. <3

lol - now see, i was just thinking that if i doubled the list (and finished all of that stuff) i'd actually be productive. My brain has totally unreasonable expectations!

and i'm always happy to see you post, too, so we're gonna have to set up a mutual admiration society ;)
your royal pie-ness: bring-it-on: missy cheers you on!entrenous88 on April 22nd, 2008 02:48 pm (UTC)
Heeee, your thinking of productivity is much like mine. I have super high expectations of myself, and then get disappointed when I can't actually, you know, accomplish the impossible. :D So it's good to have someone else say, wow, girl, you're doing great! *\o/*

Yay, I like the way that works! *develops a special handshake for our society*

Damn, girl! Look at all you did! I'm exhausted just reading it. In fact, I may just snag it, change 'Japanese' to 'Greek' and/or 'Latin' and give to some troubling friends and former professors who think I should be doing 'something'. I've been translating some Euripides and Homer for fun. I tell this to some friends, and they stare, shake their heads, and walk away. Plebeians.

I just got back into town and i heard there were GENUINE BONADIFE KATE-MADE XANDER ICONS! *claps excitedly and does the Snoopy Dance* FYI in advance - I'm so snagging ALL OF THEM.

Continue kicking school ASS! *gives you Cordelia's blessing*

LOL, do it! Snag my list! And speaking of, it's not like you've been a slouch considering your last post!! (though fending off the evil isn't quite as fun as translating, i'll bet)

LOL - DID YOU SEE THE XANDER/CORDY ONES? they're simple, but I couldn't help but think of you when I was doing half of 'em. Take 'em all! And if there's anything you want done to them just let me know.

Continue kicking school ASS! *gives you Cordelia's blessing*

from your lips to (some) god's ears! Or maybe I should just pray to the cult of Cordelia? Somehow I think she'd be more responsive and demanding ;)

LMFAO, you KNOW I totally squealed like a BITCH (or perhaps Miley Cyrus) when I saw the Xandelia LURVE! I was all, "okay, I know it's swx, but really, all of this Cordy/Xander perfection is about me and how much Kate loves me!" *was very smug*

And, yes, I have been battling the dark forces of LJ, but I will triumph because I am made of win and have Anya on my side. She smites idiots for me because I give her decent characterization. *bows*

As for the Cult of Cordelia, it is severe, but the rewards are enormous. She is demanding, true, but it's nothing less than she deserves, and she takes care of her own. Plus, you have Phantom Dennis as a guardian angel!
