(no subject)

Went to bed at 6:30 PM and slept for 10 hours.  I almost feel better, except for the whole WAUGH I HAVE TO TALK TO MY PROF IN PERSON and WAUGH I HAVE A MIDTERM ABOUT WHICH I KNOW NOTHING things. 

And TV is making me feel horrible.  This morning I watched Pushing Daisies and I was all SQUEE!  Reversing of all that is ungood, plus David Arquette! until Ned said the thing, and then I was gutted (nope.  The ending makes up for nothing.).  Then I cracked upon hearing notes of glee about the first deleted scene from The Office and watched that (because, hey, deleted!  it's like a sneak preview, right, just longer?), and now I'm completely gutted because

Edit: Oh God, I'm all of ten seconds in and I just realized that by 'corporate clothes' what I meant to say was Karen clothes.  No wonder I'm recoiling in horror.

Double edit: Have seen the whole episode.  And now I just feel sad, and uncomfortable, and angry at everyone including TPTB (because I hate their other relationships!  Hate them!  And I'm all mixed up because I should be happy that they exist to deflect the bad conflict off Jim and Pam and absorb it, but I hate them!). I really need the next episode.  I mean, at some point, there has to be something about season 5 that isn't completely horrible, right?  Right???  *is trying to remember where that happened in season 3*

Why did I have to come back this year, why. 


Replying to comments soon, I swear.

I just happened to glance at the LJ homepage, where I always look down at the featured comms out of habit, and...

Y'ALL, THIS COMMUNITY WAS TAILOR-MADE FOR ME.  You don't even know how frickin' exciting it is to scroll down the page and see post after post of people talking about books and actually be able to RECOGNIZE TITLES and KNOW WHO THE HELL THE AUTHORS ARE.  Because, you GUYS!  I always turn to the book section in magazines and newspapers, out of habit, even though it inevitably all looks as boring as the business section and leaves me feeling disappointed and empty.  It was starting to depress me how completely disengaged I was from what anyone else ever talked about in the world of literature. 

But here! It's like my soul has just been ILLUMINATED. "The Adoration of Jenna Fox," that's a new one on my to-order list!  "Looking for Alaska," that dude's on my "AUTHORS I'D LIKE TO KILL WITH CIGARETTE BURNS" list!  "I Capture the Castle," YES.  "A CERTAIN SLANT OF LIGHT," OH MY GOD, that book was so freaking fantastic! 

I AM IN DANGER OF EXPLODING FANGIRL ALL OVER.  None of my TV shows can currently give me this buzz!  This is the buzz I used to get from TV!  YA literature, my first and foremost and one true love!  aslkdjfalskdjfklasdf too much joy, don't know where I shall ever begin!  Have possibly endless amounts of posting material!

Dying of teh paroxysms of glee, RS.

[Edit: And then because I forgot to close the tab from this morning, I read a few more pages about The Office on MTT's episode discussion thread, and...now I'm back to being horribly peevish and snappish at everyone who watches this show for any reason other than Jim and Pam.  I'm this close to saying I hate Kelly, just to set an example of how they should be your primary focus at all times.
