When I read the script, I was like, Hello, woman in a box. I had to explore that to the end. SFenn  
Whooeee!!  I'm buried under papers.  Or would be if they weren't all digital.  Instead I'm frantically tipp-typing away and trying to make sure there's plenty of coherency.  Finished the rough draft of the Asian Horror paper on Tuesday, turned it into the prof for comments, picked them up yesterday afternoon, and glory of all glories - IT'S NOT CRAP!  I still have some significant revisions to do, but ... she likes it!  She really likes it! 

Biggest load off of my mind in forever.  Now I'm writing the Globalization paper, basically trying to discuss how Japanese cyberpunk is essentially a global enterprise so as to prove my two pronged point that Akira and Tetsuo fucking matter.  It's going well. 

Then there's a translation that I've got due tomorrow, but I just asked for an extension so everything doesn't come down at once.  And got it!  Monday translation, here I come!

Now for the cool stuff:
- OMG!!  Chapter 1 of Jamie Craig's Forsaken is up!!  If you like m/m erotica, please go check it out, since I did the "book cover" for it and I'm exceedingly proud to be associated with these two writers and the awesomeness that is their story!
- all because of wickedfox I decided to actually use my Deviant Art Account to upload some... well... stuff.  Old manips and wallpapers, and some pictures that, for whatever reason, I haven't uploaded to the lj.  Yes, I am a feedback whore.  Do they have 12 step for that?
- Neil's parents are arriving tonight for a 4 day stay tonight at 10 pm, and I actually have *help* cleaning the house because D. understands that, while I may seem psycho about cleaning, it's how I deal (and she actually has patience with it).  And Neil is chipping in!

And finally, from entrenous88 's choices, the ICON MEME!  This time with my horribly bad attempts at haiku.  Look, laugh, mock.  And if you reply to this post I *WILL* pick your icons, even though my response may be slow.
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four/five of your userpics.
2. Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.  (OR write a fanku or drabble about each of the icons - inspired by icon mood, what it represents to you, or whatever)
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. (YAY)

Oh Laurel K H
You play at being high brow
Yet love crotch of doom

Fury, Frustration
Cage me up, lock me away
my rage is endless

festival dancing
acrobatics and lacquer
Japan I loved you

two boys, men really
all the quiet spaces fill
with little moments

in sunlight, in clouds
never forget who she is
a moment of light

I like your haiku! They're really good! Certainly leagues better than I could do. ::nods:: I love your icons, too, though. *G*

Yay for teacher-liked papers! I totally get the cleaning, I do that, too. It makes everything seem more controllable and ordered. ::nods::

Thanks darling!!! They were a ton of fun to do... I might have to haiku more often. And no, they were so not better than you could do (and i'll prove it - well, or, if you take the drabble option you can)

And yay indeed!! And OMG the cleaning has wiped me out completely (which is bad for the work left to do). But it is so the way i relax my brain. and the parents are on their way from the airport..... :D

now, as for your icons:

Re: "
Oh, I kinda suck at haiku. *G* I'll prove it, by using that as my icon meme medium. ::nods:: I'll probably post that tomorrow!

I hope you're enjoying the visit and everything's going smoothly!

I like your haiku! I'll continue pondering the enigma that is the metal woman. :D

thank you darling! and she's actually wearing a metal cage on her head... i used to have the pic around here somewhere, but can't seem to find it now... gotta love those goth photographers!

and do you want to do the meme again? cuz I can so pick icons for you if you want (but will understand if you don't)

I think no, not this time, but thank you so much for offering. :D It is a really fun meme/squee, though!

we need to have digital representations of piles or something. But that would probably be more crazy making, wouldn't it?

and i don't know if you want to do the meme, but i would love to see what you make of these:

Oooh, I'm impressed by your haikus! I really love the Giles/Xander and Buffy ones! I want to play!! :D I probably won't be able to do haikus but will talk about the icons you choose! :D
