Look what happens when I set goals for myself!

I do things and write up the s.3 finale of Doctor Who within 24 hours!

First, a digression: got to start my evening off with a jolt of MAD AND WILD SPOILER DODGING. See, I finally got to go read the "season 3" recap on Television Without Pity - Jacob's recaps, I have...surprisingly not missed you - only to fling myself backwards in terror at the sight of Unexpected Season 4 Recap. What the hell is that thing doing there? I thought you were done! I was *this close* to seeing the words in the summary! And we all know how much TWoP's recap summaries tend to give away. I managed to rip my eyes away as soon as I caught sight of the unfamiliar new addition, though. Stayed strong and blissfully ignorant. *pumps fist*

Now I'm going to hurry up and see if I can both post this and iron out the HTML/typo wrinkles before the city loses power from 3:30 to 5 AM for maintenance (I would say it figures that they do this on a night I'm skipping sleep to accomplish writing stuff, but since the chances of that happening on any given night are pretty good...).

Now: someone hold me, because I just found a gold mine of Doctor Who on my preferred provider community, but I also couldn't rein in my curious-cat side.  I peeked at the title of the 4x13 confidential, whereupon I instantly got that punched-in-the-gut feeling of dread again. *whimper* (seriously, is killing me.  On the one hand, I really want to know what happens.  On the other, when I do find out what happens, I will be out of episodes.  And the two hands are therefore at war with how fast I want to get there, which is what makes spoilers increasingly hard to resist in the first place)

Will maybe focus on boring school-type things now.  Planning schedules and such. 

Some Good Things


goddess_loki brought this to my attention, which means a lot of you have already seen it, but for the others - HP vs. Twilight Showdown.  FUNNIEST.  THING.  EVER.   Click it, click it now!

2. I didn't want to jinx it while it was in the works, but - I officially have a job for the fall!  Which starts on Thursday!  Only 4-6 hours a week, but it's better than nothing, and I don't have to go through training or anything new; I just keep working where I did this summer, cleaning one of the freshman dorms.  Sweep the main stairwell and clean the small bathrooms/vaccuum the lounges/take out garbage in the basement.  Not too difficult, and the basement doesn't get used as much anyway.  (except I picked my work hours really stupidly.  Why did I decide to work at 9 AM on the days I don't have class until the afternoon?!  *headdesk*  I think I can change this later, hopefully)

3. The Continental Literature Clash of 2008 is still not resolved.  I'm now going to both classes on Wednesday (and possibly also Friday, since the first day has shortened class periods) so I can get a feel for them before I officially make up my mind between British Novels and Multicultural U.S. Lit with Amazing Prof.  I hate having to make this decision.  But at least this way, I'll get to have a tiny taste of the one I don't choose.

4. Courtesy of a cheap eBay auction, "The Stone Rose" in audiobook-CD form is in the mail and on its way to me.  So there's that to look forward to.  :) 

5. Ahahaha, apartment meeting tonight to turn in forms and hear all the rules, and then I think I have finished all my obligations until 9:00 Wednesday morning.  WOOT.  Now, watch me be totally unproductive, like click around LJ all day.  It's been a frightfully good Monday so far, aside from the fact that I got woken up this morning by the fire alarms going INSANE for no apparent reason (I swear these are louder than normal ones, too).  Yep, that's a sure sign school is in session...
