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.

NB: I am a massive spoilerphobe. All spoilers contained herein have been invented wholecloth.

Why do people feel the need to post spoilers in Twitter?

 Spoiler warning. How do you all feel about Dean marrying Lisa and then finding out she's demon!Mary (and has been all along)? 

SPOILER! Yay! Set photos of Marksha and the YED in 6x05!


IT DOESN'T WORK. My eyes have already seen the rest of it.

Venting done. Have a meme or two!

Meem! )
Meem #2! )

GUISE, GUISE, HOW INCREDIBLY FAIL AM I?

So I just went to visit [community profile] backtoschool to check if they had a fic header layout, and I realised that the deadline is 20 JULY. Not June. OMFG I have been working so frantically to get my fic done on time and adslkjag. In all the times I have visited the comm, how have I never noticed this?

\o/ Now I have time to do the awesome WWI university AU that I wanted to. Not that this isn't going to cause new problems what with BigBang bit still, \o/\o/\o/.

Now I'm off to write the crack!fic that I've been putting off because of the university AU HARMONY HARMONY <3

YAY! My laptop, whose name is George, is back from repairs! \o/\o/\o/

He now has an enter key and a shiny new keyboard. Also, there are no longer wobbly bits being held on by tape.

I am never lending anything to my sister ever again. She dropped him. Down the stairs.

Now that I have proper access to a computer and a full keyboard, I no longer have any excuse not to write and reply to comments. Feel free to kick me if I am being negligent in these things.


Also, I am starting to notice the Sam/Dean subtext when watching episodes. This has never happened before. I suppose this is what I get for having Sam/Dean people on my flist. Luckily, I can multi-ship anyone but Castiel. For some reason I can only ship Castiel with Dean (except for crack, sometimes, but not if Dean ever appears in the fic). I don't understand, I just accept.
