oh my god it's a mirage i'm telling y'all it's sabotage

mood: confused
I swear I'm going crazy.

So, for Public Allies, all their info is online. Easy, yes? So I downloaded the application and reference forms in, like, March, to look at what they wanted and what I needed to do. Then, in April, I wanted physical copies of the forms, so I downloaded them again and printed them out.

But wait! These are subtly different! Questions have changed and the essay is now 'optional'. Well, this one looks way more stream-lined and updated, so it's probably a more recent version. I check with the coordinator and yep, that's the one they want. Coolness. Confusion solved.

Welp, deadline is a month away for application, so I want to get my references ASAP. I got a shiny new computer and the forms are on the other one, so I figure I'll just download them again and send 'em off.

I CAN'T FIND ANY REFERENCE FORMS.

Now it's JUST the personal info/questions/essay. They don't even mention the need for letters of recommendation.

THIS IS SO WEIRD, WHY? They keep deleting portions! Did they change their minds? I mean, I'll get the references anyway, but huh. So strange. I looked at the Pittsburgh-specific site, the Public Allies general site, and the partner organization site. Zip.

Stop messing with me, Internet.

Everything's as expected, and then it all gets thrown for a fucking loop.

But really, it's not so bad.

  Zee computer, she has died again.

And this time it's giving me the "?" in a folder, which means it doesn't even think it has a hard disk.

1) Computer at Apple headquarters right now... being gutted.

2) HS tournament went swimmingly! Super fun and I only want to die because of lack of sleep.

3) The stagehands on Broadway have gone on strike.

The stagehands.

So who can move a table from Point A to Point B? Then come with me to New York City, baby, because it's my time to shine!

Welp, computer is now well and truly dead. So call me if you need me, it's going to the Apple Store tonight and then off to get its insides gutted. I shan't be on AIM for... awhile.

:(

But on the plus side, now I won't be distracted as much, more time more music, and I can read more.

Also it was snowing this morning. *love*

Why must there be such beautiful things on the Internet when I am bound to write about such ugliness?

Perhaps a real, honest-to-God "what's up lately" entry in the future.

Computer still hanging on to the last strands of life. She's a trooper.

So, if I'm not on AIM for awhile, it's because my computer is rapidly on its way to death and I am keeping it shut down unless necessary.

*le sigh* My poor baby.

This is what I do instead of my homework:

oblivionfolder (12:21:32 AM): I love that water cooler.
oblivionfolder (12:21:37 AM): The water's so much cooler.
MusingThalia (12:21:52 AM): such a nice ratio of H to O!
oblivionfolder (12:22:35 AM): H2O is SO much nicer than just HO. Ho is no go.
MusingThalia (12:23:08 AM): Oh, I know
MusingThalia (12:23:16 AM): the extra H just makes a much nicer flow
oblivionfolder (12:24:03 AM): the Ho don't know how to turn into snow. When the snowboarders show, they won't know where to go
oblivionfolder (12:24:37 AM): (sorry, I repeated a bit, but it's hard to make it coherent, rhyming, AND unique)
MusingThalia (12:25:04 AM): They might go somewhere to row, and if the snow is in a row and they can't go with the flow, their chi will be off and they'll be a no-show!
MusingThalia (12:25:28 AM): (there are only so many rhyming words, anyway.)
oblivionfolder (12:26:04 AM): Whenever you go to a show with your beau, be nice to the cast and don't swap H2O.
MusingThalia (12:26:29 AM): You changed the subject; way to go!
oblivionfolder (12:27:00 AM): Beau is the last word rhyming O that I know.
oblivionfolder (12:27:16 AM): (Iambic pentameter, that was)
MusingThalia (12:27:24 AM): There's always "crow"
oblivionfolder (12:27:25 AM): (beeeyotch)
oblivionfolder (12:27:25 AM): :-P
MusingThalia (12:27:39 AM): oh NO
MusingThalia (12:27:42 AM): *slap*
oblivionfolder (12:28:23 AM): All of this rhyming just makes me go, "Whoa."
MusingThalia (12:28:56 AM): like that nice bloke on Blossom, what was his name, Joe?
oblivionfolder (12:29:51 AM): Or perhaps Harry's ex-semi-lover named Cho.
MusingThalia (12:31:31 AM): Fun as this is, I must go; I have readings to complete by a Machiavelli, Niccolo
oblivionfolder (12:31:49 AM): Well played. You're good at this, you know.
MusingThalia (12:32:36 AM): Thank you, mon ami. I credit the improv training of a stage show
oblivionfolder (12:33:15 AM): I wouldn't know, but I suspect it helps your flow. Now don't lolligag, away you must go.
oblivionfolder (12:33:27 AM): (for your own sake, you know)
MusingThalia (12:33:39 AM): Of course. May the morning sun wake you with a gentle glow
oblivionfolder (12:33:54 AM): Cheerio!

So this is what I've been doing with myself lately!

Painted T-shirts!Collapse )

lying in long grassCollapse )

Engage, Number One!Collapse )

My favorite...Collapse )

SPARKLY!"Collapse )

oh yeah...Collapse )

I really, really, enjoy doing these. They're really fun, and I get new shirts out of it! I'm working on designs for other one... I wish I could alter shirts more easily, though. The adult mediums are pretty shapeless, which makes they easy to wear and comfortable, but... they're shapeless. Maybe I tie them in the back ro something, or make some darts. No, that wouldn't work. Anyway, I REALLY like the shape of the fitted tshirts. I think I'll stick with those for my black and whites, and get the regular ones and do some beading or experimental altering. They're only four bucks each, so WHOO!

Plans for future shurts include:
- Beading the bottoms
- Making a brocade bowtie and sewing it onto the front
- Abstract, blocky pattern going down the middle of the front and back.
- More French one the front, something pretty on the back.
- graffiti-like abstract designs.

Anyway, it's REALLY fun and if anyone wants to do it with me, it's awesome!

So, my friends and I were sitting on a bench, eating Rita's ice today.

And we noticed the bench wasn't bolted down.

After shanghai-ing DanCC into helping us and 'borrowing' a cart from the Cathedral, we managed to move the bench to under a tree at the Union. Hopefully we can get it to Katie's room before the year ends. We got scared because we saw people in uniform in close proximity. I don't think the bus drivers have any official authority, but it was too nice a day to risk it.

Yeah, we're awesome.

So I was writing my Japanese Myths assignments in a vague haze, and then went to talk to Rhette and get some water. When I returned, I found I had apparently typed this after writing about 1900-era Japan. I'm sure it will be used as evidence of my continuing insanity:Collapse )

This kind of stuff goes through my head all the damn time, people. And now I guess I'm writing it out without realizing it, either.
