I'm not cool enough for the Internet  
Whoa, so I go to update and find a mostly-written entry about last semester's terrible Harry Potter class. I totally don't even remember writing it. Well, the class sucked anyway, and it was a massive source of bitching from my little English nerd group, doubtlessly annoying many but entertaining me. Also the professor managed to say two amazing things, one awesome and one horribly racist. Respectively, these were:

"Why wasn't Dumbledore liberating Auschwitz?"

and

"So basically he goes for the girl-next-door [Ginny] and not the dragon-lady [Cho]."

I don't think I will ever be able to forget either.

But I drew a picture: Remus and Harry sketch. And I made a presentation about gay werewolf AIDS in class, which should totally have been a wonderful paper, especially because I managed to come up with several very elegant ideas involving queer and monster theory and werewolf mythology. But no. No paper in an upper-division English class. Let's do powerpoints and objective exams instead! Wait, what? Ugh.

I'm currently trying to make myself work on my thesis, which is hard because I'm pretty sure I'm doing Masters-level work and getting Bachelor-level credit, but oh well. Again, I have a very elegant idea that I'm focused on to the exclusion of all else, but it's so goddamned metaphysical. Also I'm probably in a state of mild depression, because I'm unhappy with my job and my social life is kind of fucked up. Also I'm not in Poland right now! Why must a $1500 plane ticket keep me from Poland!? :(

Things I have been consuming lately and am burning to talk about: Discworld and Archer. I know, these are two very different things.

Also I suck at lj, so if you want to be facebook friends, I can tell you that I am slightly more lively there. Leave me a comment and I'll sneakily give you my id, I guess. Then we can friend each other and pretend to be facebook populars.

Second season finale, even weirder. But second season develops Krieger and Ray Gillette a bit more, in small and amazing ways.

It is a wonderful, cruel show!

also now I'm really actually mad that Dumbledore DIDN'T liberate Auschwitz

I was mad too and when she said that, I said really loud, "Wait, that's a good question!"

I LOVE the Harry and Remus picture! *applauds* Such great lines!

Wow, a plane ticket to Poland is much cheaper than France, but not as cheap as Spain. Odd. Odd that I mentioned that, too. >_>

Thanks! I wish I drew more... or actually finished sketches. But that's so hard.

Actually, last year the Poland ticket was like $1200... or it would have been, but for my friend and I it was around $1400 because we chose to fly out of London a week later than everyone else. We were going to go to Croatia after Poland, but then it was two hundred euro one-way, so that got scrapped. We went to Rome instead, because it was cheaper. We wanted to go to Paris, but money and time made that not a good idea. I'd like to go to Spain someday! Good to hear that it's cheaper, I guess, haha. I'd love to travel more, and it's a wretch that it's so expensive.

You're welcome! :D

Apparently, you can get a roundtrip ticket to Barcelona on Kayak.com for about $1000. France is in the neighborhood of $1700+ which is quite ridiculous considering it's not that far from Spain. Italy is about the same price as Spain depending on where your flight arrives.

I'd go to Australia if I didn't have to give up my first born and a quart of blood. : /

If only I had a thousand dollars lying around, I'd be out and about in a heartbeat. Alas, I think I'm going to be confined to the US for the foreseeable future. And I've never even tried to look up Australia or New Zealand. I'd probably cry. :( If only travel weren't so expensive. Or it were easier to become independently wealthy.
