solitarysloth: On a black background, a man standing in a ring of fire (PRAYER CIRCLE)
I would like to propose that I have the greatest Latin prof in the history of ever.

There were several rousing renditions of this song in class. Then he got the university choir to record it.

I think my professor just really likes filking things. He routinely stops mid-lecture to ponder possible songs (and that one time he translated an Elvis song into Latin, which we then sang in class). Or maybe it's just a Latin thing.

ETA b/c I'm not making a new post for this, but

Things Not To Do When Retelling A Classic Children's Story:
1. Make The Opening Line Unintelligible. SRSLY. What.

All right now, we're going to begin. When we come to the end of the story we shall know more than we do now, for he was a very bad goblin!

No, seriously, what even is that.
(cf. the original: "You must attend to the commencement of this story, for when we get to the end we shall know more than we do now about a very wicked hobgoblin")

2. Not Bother To Mention That It's A Retelling. Anywhere.

Having returned to the Internet and to paying attention to my flist (so much happier than when I was away from lj, although less school-work done)...

I'm not sure how I feel about S6 so far. On the one hand, I've been enjoying it and squeeing, but at the same time, I've been having some issues with it and my squee hasn't been as great as it used to be. Unfortunately, I don't have the interest or motivation to do reactions atm, but I can't tell how much of that is show and how much is just me, so. Mostly I've squeed and flailed over Castiel and the interactions between Dean and Cas, and then been mostly apathetic for the rest.

In other news, there was a fair trade fest at my uni last week, with lots of really cool vendors and things for sale. On the one hand, I now have no money, but on the other, I have some Christmas gifts and I got this beautiful journal, bound in camel leather and with paper made from cotton waste from the textile industry. I love it and can't wait to use it. I'd post a picture, except it's not much to look at and I only have a crappy cell-phone camera, but it's beautiful plain, unsealed leather that's going to get wondrously soft and floppy over time. <333

I've been tagged for a meme, too, but I'll leave that for when I'm not procrastinating on an unstarted essay that's due on Tuesday. And all I want to do is go sleep for 24 hours. And that's not even an exaggeration. *headdesk*

And now I must express my love for this gif, because, as with Like a Boss, I must be the last person to find out about this meme.

Although I think I've been too influenced by the people I know who would complain about the of "everyone" instead of "errabody".

Fuck Latin homework, I'm going to sleep before I keel over and drop my laptop.

So I just watched Razorback. I watched it because of the info: "Likely the best movie ever made about a man-eating hog". This is pretty much all the description it needs.

It was a fun bad movie. There was the deus ex pig, saving Our Strapping Hero from a moral conundrum; villainous Australian rednecks (oh, the clich├ęs); and a camel. Not enough explosions, though.

There was also surprise!misogyny, in the form of a (pregnant) woman whose only purpose was to be almost raped and then killed, thus bringing her husband, Our Hero, to Australia to avenge her death. This was less fun.

All in all, I'd rather go watch Stonehenge Apocalypse again. <3

In more exciting and fannish news, I signed up for [ profile] deancasbigbang. That was probably a bad idea, but I'm too busy worrying about my SPN university AU to get worked up about it yet. Give me till next week.

My to-do list is now basically writing and replying to comments. I'm getting better at being able to post and participate in fandom in certain situations -- when I can convince myself that I'm just 'throwing things out into the aether'. Less better when I'm actually talking to someone or have to reply, because omg I must impress them and not make a mistake ever. Which causes even more problems when I end up replying late salfkjs;a. ISSUES, I HAZ THEM. (This is also possibly part of the reason I identify with Dean over Sam, but that's a whole nother post.)


ETA: I may have fallen asleep before hitting post. Oops.
Also, I have not actually turned capslock off since STONEHENGE APOCALYPSE, idek.
