I got sucked in by more manga. T^T

First it was Beck, because I have a weakness for music. Then I gave into my craving for Eyeshield 21. Someone at [ profile] free_manga was looking for Naruhyon no Mago and while that one had too many female characters for my taste, they were interesting enough that I got sucked in. Finally, I discovered 07 Ghost  was being scanlated and OMG, this series has an ALL MALE CAST and they wield, magic, swords, and high speed motorcycles. There are two factions: priests against the military. All those gorgeous men in uniforms!

Now I have to wait week by week for updates. T_T I want instant gratification!

I r sooooo ded.

Especially since I'm compulsively refreshing the most recent entries in [ profile] merlinxarthur and [ profile] aggybird.

But! At least I haz me a chocolate orange! *whack* And lots and lots of yummies from Hing Lung in Chinatown. Finally, two cravings satisfied!

Thought of the week: Exploding penises in PWPs. Painful and gory.

I've been back into the Clex fandom lately, after a brief, satisfying foray in Ocean's 11, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Angel, Jeeves & Wooster, and Heroes, and I've come up with a question.

If Superman's eye-lasers set things on fire, why are they red? The hottest flames in a fire are blue, and I think the most intense waves are the ultraviolet ones too.

On a work related note, the MacDonald's I work at recently has added the Iced Coffees to its menu. Did you guys know that every pot of coffee that goes into it was brewed using twice as much coffee grounds as the regular hot coffee? And for the Sweet Tea, the ratio of sugar to water in it is one pound for every gallon?

On a school related note, I totally pwned a charcoal self-portrait 18 by 25. It was one of the best in the class, in my not so humble opinion, and my exercise in draped clothe turned out more realistic and softer than I'd thought! Major win.

Then I find out my final project is an approximately 3 ft by 6 ft piece.

I want to do a combination of a portrait and landscape. Hopefully, I can get my roommate and/or her boyfriend to let me draw them while they're studying or something and then add an interesting background when they're not available. Problem is, the only paper that comes in that size is the smoother, Linux drawing paper and I plan to use black, soft pastels. I've been using them only on charcoal paper up until now, so I'm going to have to experiment and adjust myself to applying it to the different paper. XP

On a whining note, I WANT TO SEE THE DARK KNIGHT!!! My sister gets to lay around grandma's house all day, baking peach tarts and watching movies with my aunt at night while I'm pulling long hours in the lab or the studio. She never even went through the trials of a pounding out a proper personal statement for college apps, that brat! *mutter mutter*

... Yes, yes, it's time for me to break out the chocolate.

It's been more than a month since I've posted anything of note, so I shall list some recent culinary, if ice cream can be considered such, discoveries. Through the pint-sized tastiness of Ben & Jerry's, I have learned that my taste buds adore not only the Rocky Road, Spumoni, and green tea flavors, but also Dublin Mudslide, pistachio, and peach flavored ice cream. It's a pity that the only peach-flavored ice cream comes with chunks of what B&J calls cinnamon pie crusts. No other brand offers peach, sadly.

Also, I am looking forward to summer school this season. No more English classes, of which I am beginning to detest, but my first foray into my second major, graphic design! Instead of textbooks, I will be spending money on art supplies--be still, my heart!

Stuck in Davis, with an adult community of mostly Caucasian people, I am craving a large serving of quality chow mein. Incredibly enough, the equivalent here consists of a thinner, udon-like noodle. Bleh, I say.

On a less self-centered topic, Van visited yesterday! It was great to catch up with each other and afterwards, we hung out a little bit more over several games of pool (aka snooker) at which I was the most miserable player and ended up the partner of the strongest player, my roommate's boyfriend's roommate. Tongue/mind-twister, eh?

My little sister got accepted into college and my family heaved a relieved sigh. She seems very flippant about the whole thing, however, and I don't think all our worries are gone yet.

Continuing this news bulletin, I truly truly desire to quite my job at McD's. Most the kinder, softer managers are quiting, due to being even more sick of working with the grease than I, and the only ones left either 1.)speak little Spanish, or 2.)take great joy in making non-managers do needless chores, such as restocking when restocking is not yet necessary. Unfortunately for me, the only jobs available on campus are lab techs, research aids that require more skill and time than I have, or tutoring. The latter may be within my reach, but I doubt my shamefully low G.P.A. would work in my favor.

Note to self: Do not procrastinate again.

I had two essays due this week, one on Thursday and the other today. Being the blithe idiot I can be many times, I had also glibly agreed to pull an extra shift at work the weekend before. The weekend which I should have spent drafting said essays.

Then I remembered I also had Paso A, B, y C exercises in my workbook due and a test in Spanish today.

Due to procrastination and the black out mentioned in the previous post, I went to sleep on Thursday morning at 4, got up four hours later, gave my homework to a friend to turn in, skipped SPA 1, went to computer lab to finish the first essay. I think I did an all right job.

Last night, I studied for the test and after the page swam in front of my numbing eyes for the fourth time, went to take an hour-long nap. Somehow, this hour stretched on until my alarm clock rang at 7 this morning. Resigned to a poor test result, I rushed to catch the next bus to get some studying before school started. Then I had a solid three-hour block of classes and discussion. I spent the ones I didn't have a test in reading the second half of Beowulf. When my cell phone read 11:50 after my last class until the essay was due, I nearly ran to the library computer lab, which was closest, found out that all the sit-down stations were full, then ran on to the computer lab in the next building. I then spent the next three and a half hours pounding away at a keyboard with a stuck space-bar.

Made it to class five minutes late, but I got the paper turned in!

I returned home, went for some groceries due to a craving for B&J's Dublin Mudslide and mangoes for my roommate while I was at it. Spotted some Bertoli's alfredo and tomato sauces on sale and Mom confirmed it as a tasty brand.

Day done and over with, but with an early wake up at 6 the next morning for work (my God, what was I thinking agreeing to these morning shifts?), I logged onto Gaiaonline for some much needed down time. Someone had donated to me my quest item! What a great way to end a horrible day (my fault, I know, but whatever XD).

Now to go to sleep earlier than usual to catch up on my missing forty winks!

Am sick of McD food.

Am craving molasses-dark, GINGER bread cookies. Not those crunchy little ginger-flavored cookie-men.
