Marvelous.

On the bright side, Frozen was a good movie. I guess that's something, right?

I'm just.. I'm just done.
Sorry to hear that. I know this sounds kind of lame, but I do hope things get better for you.

Ferlion always bounces back!

Hopefully no one is like me and considering overseas studies. Because that's scary. Doctor Who season 7 scary.

I blame Aristotle on not having the books, and Aquinas on realizing at the last minute that the essay I had written was utter shite.

I find essays in English to be more about how skilled you are at bullshitting.

I tried that on my midterm (three in-class essays), partly out of a genuine lack of sufficient studiousness, and partly because handwriting for any considerable length of time leaves my hand in crippling pain. Lets just say it served me poorly.

It depends what I need to write on. This Technical Writing class is just annoying.

I've enjoyed many of Vonnegut's works, but I'm not really sure what kind of fanfiction one could write. A near-future adventure about Billy Pilgrim's brief career as a speaker on fourth-dimensional travel in a Balkanized US? Post-apocalyptic adventure in a post Ice-9 world? Eliot Rosewater/Kilgore Trout slashfic?

Yeah, it's pretty slim pickings.

The fact that it's been limited for so long suggests that it hasn't been very successful. Aside from Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., none of them seem particularly well-known. If it's to succeed, it will need to get licenses from more franchises with big and active fandoms. Licensing from these might be very difficult, however.

I'm honestly surprised Blizzard "Mr. Moneyz" Entertainment has not signed up. After all they are amicable towards fanfiction and not very concerned about literary integrity of any kind.

I got a new tattoo on Sunday. There is a huge difference between getting a tattoo at 30 than 18.

On the plus side, the artist was really cool. He spent the day with us so we got to know each other pretty good. He has tattooed a bunch of "celebrities" and I only quotation that because I don't know a better way of doing it. Basically models, in a similar vein to Suicide Girls.

Plus his wife came in and hung out so the four of us sat around shot the shit, oh and he rapidly jammed a needle into my chest over the course of 4 hours.

It's really a nice looking piece though, I am super worried about my body's bizarro healing messing it up now though.

All in all though, probably the last one I will get... I say now.

How does your own wife feel about you tattooing lewd women on your body that aren't her?

Well, she went first. Also, the tattoos aren't of women, or people.

Soo, I'm studying for a test on Electromagnetism that I'll have on Thursday. I'm getting magnetic fields, magnetic flux, flux density and a bunch of other mumbo jargon terms mixed up. :X

Hmm, have you tried flashcards? I used those to study for some of my econ classes.
