No, not school again!  
So I have to go back to school on Tuesday. Oh joy! I had to get a crappy parking pass because I left it for too long. Oops. I may be able to exchange it later, though, so...

Anyway, my schedule is:

Literature in English I - MWF - 9:55 - 10:45 am
Abnormal Psych - MWF - 12:05 - 12:55 pm
Intro to Shakespeare - MW - 3:45 - 5:00 pm
Late Modern Art - TR - 9:15 - 10:30 am
Painting II - TR - 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

This may change! I would like to get into this creative nonfiction writing class that hortonhearsawho says is supposed to be awesome, but they're requiring that you have passed Lit in English I or II before you can sign up. Since I have not passed either, it won't let me sign up, though god knows that I am still more than qualified. :/ I am going to try to talk to someone on Monday, I guess, and we'll just see how that goes. OH WAIT. No we won't, because it's Martin Luther King Day. Dammit, dammit, dammit. I'm sorry, Mr. King, but your day keeps foiling my brilliant plans. :( I also had plans to get books early, but lol nope, guess not. Possibly Sunday, if the bookstore is open. OH HAY IT IS. \o/ Oh god, I just discovered the bookstore has online ordering and oh my books are going to be expensive this semester. D:

So Psych was pretty amazing tonight. Last night. Whatever. Lassiter wore casual clothes and there were actual Shawn/Lassiter type moments that made me sort of want fic, except I know most of it sucks. I know this for a fact. Stupid fandom tease. I just want the grumpy asshole cop and the sociopathic con-man to wisecrack at each other a little, is that so much to ask? (Yes.)

Also there's an interesting sexuality discussion with regard to Man From UNCLE here, tackling that thorny question of how (or why) do you write about mansex when the characters are shown chasing after girls? (The answer is that sex is fucking complicated.)

(Also I still want fic where Napoleon gets changed into a woman via crazy Thrush drugs.)

(Also David Cross is awesome.)

I just wanted to tell you how hilarious this sentence is when the only context I can place it in is my current rereading of Les Mis.

That would offer up some stunning mental images, yes. :D

Nah, use an alternate 'radiation' like The Moonglow Affair did. Or, let there be aliens. ;)

Of course, one thing that's not come up, is that with a show like U.N.C.L.E. one has a greater 'beard was needed' defense than is true with more recent fandoms like The Sentinel or the frustration of lack of 'being there' in the new Star Treks.

Brainwave transference? Okay, not as much fun as the published fanfic (it was one of those early anthologies) in OS Star Trek, where they had to acknowledge 'these were the bodies that would have been theirs had things been different') but it wouldn't in those days to convince everyone it wasn't just brainwave transfer.

That David Cross article is hysterical!

I once yelled at him when I was working at Trader Joe's in NYC. He said "This is the regular line, right?", (I was holding a sign that says REGULAR LINE ENDS HERE) I responded with "You can read... good for you." Then he rounded a corner in the line, I saw that it was David Cross, and I giggled to myself for the rest of the day.

Also: love your icon.

Are you sure it wasn't the fake David Cross?

Seriously, though, I think that's the best way to have a celebrity sighting. :D Oh David.

And yes, that article is amazing.

Forget it, Jake. It's the Internet.

I know it is the most pipe dream of fan fiction pipe dreams, but still. :(

Well, I dunno, one of us could always go to Switzerland and make astonishing headway in breaking the barriers between pipe dream and reality which ends in someone's eyeballs exploding.

btw hi! I uh. Was browsing the ship_manifesto database, unfortunately couldn't find your essay, but wandered over here to your LJ and you seem cool and I'm basically thrilled I'm not alone in my Herbert West wifery, so. yay networking :D?

lol Shawn/Lassiter is like one of the creatures in From Beyond!

Hi! Oh dear, the ship manifesto. Yes, I know it's not working. My website has been up and down and back and forth, I'm afraid. I'm trying again to get it back up (although that essay needs some edits, but still). I can, uh, let you know when I do...?

And yy, oh Herbert. If you've brought up Jeffrey Combs on meme before, we've probably exchanged comments. :D Anonymously.

It eats people alive, makes everyone sprout gross deelyboppers from their foreheads, and gives Barbara Crampton the uncontrollable urge to deflower Jeffrey Combs?

Suddenly the pairing is about a zillion times more appealing.

Please do let me know! I suspect we may not agree 100% on the particulars, but after watching Bride of Re-Animator the other day (with the hilarious Combs/Abbott commentary where Bruce is like "...dude Herbert so has a thing for Dan" and Jeff is all "WHAT WHERE ARE YOU GETTING THAT FROM")... yeah, it goes waaaay beyond subtexty.

WE PROBABLY HAVE, COME TO THINK OF IT :'D (And if you were in any way involved in the exchange that inspired this icon, I will adore you forever.)
