So after reading much fic featuring (fictional) geniuses (Bruce Wayne, Rodney Mckay), I caved and took an IQ test. Question is, is this site valid or not? It made me go through 6 pages of ads before I could even see this. It also seems remarkably high when I remember that [ profile] snahjerblah took one not too long ago on facebook and got a 137. She's a biomed engineer and I'm majoring in the humanities. Consider also the fact that Einstein's IQ was 160, and I'm very doubtful of this:
Online IQ Test - Online IQ Test

Then again, I'd taken ANOTHER one before, which took me to a page that made it appear that I would need to pay before I could see the score, but checking my e-mail, it appears that I have an IQ of 130, according to

Is it just me, or am I particularly sad that I'm taking these things? ^^;

Also, I returned to McD's after two or so months of hiatus for summer school and they had Madame Alexander Wizard of Oz dolls for girl children! The wicked witch looked so awesome, I snuck three out (moi, [ profile] snahjerblah, [ profile] darkestnight12). After some extensive digging through many Tin Man and The Lion dolls, I found ONE Wizard of Oz. Wasn't he supposed to be a wizened old man? The doll bearing his label was the most adorable looking blond boy with a top hat, a cape, and painted on, fair, curling hair that I have since dubbed "Draco Malfoy". Boy children get plastic Lego characters from Batman. The theme was awesome; the products I saw--not so much.

It was great, [ profile] snahjerblah came by at around 7 or 8 to pick up the doll and then vamoosed back to her boyfriend's place. XD

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.

Due to the severe weather, something happened to make my Internet die so right now I'm on campus.

Yesterday, [ profile] snahjerblah found a white hair. On my head. It's the family curse--we all gray early on my mother's side and while it may look elegant and refined on a tall, thin, elderly woman (my grandmother), looking piebald in my middle age would surely crack my mirror.

It's rather hard to update lj while in the confines of the 24-hour reading room about events that have already happened and, apparently, forgotten.

Oh, yesterday, half of my college town was without power and the McD's I work at was swamped. Every store at the U Mall was closed due to the electricity-loss and my nearby Safeway had to throw away all its (formerly) frozen goods and (formerly) fresh produce. People who were in there when it black out had to continue shopping by cell phone light. One of my co-workers this morning said manager and workers from the other, larger McD's in town had to be called. One man had the sole task of brewing pot after pot of coffee and I'm glad I wasn't scheduled yesterday. The Evil Manager was in charge during this rush.

So while I have no internet, I still have light and hot, running water, which the inhabitants of the apartment complex right next door do not, so I'm grateful.

Today is Mom's birthday, so I must remember to call home tonight.

I woke up today at 6:30 and tomorrow, and the following four days, I must awaken at 8:00. T^T

Tom and Jerry anthropomorphied (is that even a word? XD)! One of my major kinks is love/hate relationships, so the classic cat versus mouse stereotype is right up my alley. Picture this, Tom and Jerry have been next-door neighbors since the dawn of time and have been enemies for about just as long. Tom's born of a privileged family while Jerry's not even upper middle class. Tom's a methodical person with set ways and Jerry's erratic thinking and sense of humor irritates him. Jerry, born in a large but happy family does not understand how Tom can be so satisfied with what he sees as an unfulfilling life. The story starts with the boys first year in college, in majors that are polar opposites of each other. Tom's slated for biochemical engineering and one of a legacy while Jerry's a fine arts and English double major and the first in his family to attend college. Tom's already in a frat (which means some research on my part since I've no clue about how frats or sororities work) but Jerry's stuck with his crowded dorm. Both boys are popular in their respective ways, but Tom, like the cat he's based on, is more aloof. I'm sure this is not even borderline Harlequin cliche, but it all fits so perfectly and it's slashed!

Like all great love/hate relationships something drastic has to happen for the boys to see each other as potential love interests. I'm thinking about the typical family emergency/death, holiday blues, tutoring, or just locking the boys up together in a deserted lab.

On a wholly different topic, I know one of my managers at McD's dislikes me, at worst, or thinks I'm some sort of clumsy buffoon at best. Whenever I'm not doing anything, she sends me on extraneous chores while the other two workers get to hang around talking with her. In Spanish. It feels like she's playing favorites and I've never felt like such an inadequate person with any of the other managers. I do know what I'm doing since I have been working at McD's for almost half a year! She's always telling me what to do, even when I'm already starting it or am obviously in the middle of working on something else. For example, I'm cleaning trays and she tells me to restock. If she'd let me finish, I would've done it without any reminding needed! Also, whenever I'm in the back fetching more supplies for the front and a customer shows up, rather than just handling them herself, she calls for me, even when it's apparent that she has nothing to do!

One of the other, kinder managers have quite since he plans to restart school after Christmas break, but he's the one who usually manages the single weekend morning shift I do when school's in session. I'm praying that W's not the one who'll replace him. N's cool, but he does Saturdays while I usually do Sundays. I'm hoping for C, at least, for even though she likes to keep me busy too, she's loads nicer about it. Yesterday, I fell into a sort of blue funk after W made me feel more insufficient than I already did. I sleep four hours right after work, woke for about another five hours, and then slept for another 5 hours. This morning, I still felt tired.

Moving onto another topic, (yes, this post makes up for the previous two days) remember that little writing request I put up last month? Maybe not, since it was so long ago, but [ profile] lilian_cho and [ profile] darkestnight12 voted for #2 and I've handwritten a few pages! I'll need to type it up and reviser it, but there's progress!

Am sick of McD food.

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

I'm working every day this week except Tuesday, and already my feet are sore. It's a terrible irony that I wake at noon for school and 6:30 am for work. XD

Today, a man ordered 120 double cheeseburgers and 50 small fries. Apparently, he had 60 men working on a project near our location. It took us almost an hour to get all the food out! Plus, it was way busier than usual.

I do not look forward to the rest of this week despite the meager money I'll make. My hair's all icky and it's so cold in the morning!

Argh, argh, argh; what was I thinking?

Oh, yeah. Money. XDDD
