Things I Am Not Allowed to do Before Bed

- Watch any Gaius/Caprica scene that could conceivably make me too overjoyed with them to actually sleep. Which is basically just the finale but do you know how often I think, about forty-five minutes before bed, 'Oh, I should pop in the finale and just watch the shippy scenes?' ALL THE DAMN TIME. And I've done it before, and it always ends with me getting all verklempt with joy and happiness like Dolly Parton wished it on me or something and it's just awful, especially when I am finally recovering from the cold that lay waste to my vocal cords this weekend.

In other news, my house got broken into today. Apparently some guy kicked in our garage door- not breaking the lock or the steel door, mind you, but actually breaking the door frame, and walked on into my house. Walked right past my father's laptop, which was sitting on the dining room table, and out my front door, because the alarm went off and apparently he got so scared he left without taking anything. It is at once incredibly bizarre (I live in a really safe, low key, family-oriented little suburb,) incredibly funny (he like... walked through my house! without taking anything! also, he kicked in the door, who was it, the Hulk?) and incredibly unsettling (there was a stranger in my house.) Thankfully, no one was home, and nothing was stolen and none of our animals were hurt and all my parents need to do is replace the garage door but it's so weird.

I absolutely love UF, and Gainesville, and my apartment and my roommates and all my friends, but I absolutely hate packing up and leaving home.

6 hours, 313 songs, 1 scarf and one DELICIOUS CARVEL ICE CREAM CONE later, I AM HOME FOR WINTER BREAK.

I spent most of the day with Melissa, which was delightful. She's such a good friend to me- she kept me from studying, I kept her from studying, and we watched two episodes of Alias. She's awesome.

At home, we have the world's largest Christmas tree. It is taking over our house. It's obscene (yet festive.)

I've almost posted a million times in the past couple of days, but I've just been so totally stressed out with moving and apartment hunting that I certainly didn't want to talk about all the horror cause I'm hoping I'll forget about it. Anyway, in apartment hunting, I was lured in by one complex in particular called Melrose. It's the farthest from campus but oh! It is so nice and pretty.

And then that night in Orlando, something made me check on the internet to see if there were apartment rating sites for Gainesville. And there was, of course. On two different sites, that complex got under 40/100 in stuff. Everything was negative and horrible sounding. Bugs and horrible management and lying contracts and drugs everywhere and oh man, I'm so glad I didn't sign. So now I'm thinking about this other place called the Landings, but there the bedrooms aren't furnished. I can rent bedroom furniture for $30 a month, but for that I might as well buy some damn furniture myself, and of course that's a horrifying thing. And, goddammit, it's all stupid 12 month leases and how the hell am I going to pay for summer, since I want to go abroad so I will just be hemorrhaging money and it's all horrible and stressful and FUCK YOU UF HOUSING LOTTERY.

Arg, anyway, in good news, I am home (even though the whole summer classes thing is giving me a horrible time) and I got to see almost all of my relatives and their offspring today and it was really nice and fun. And it's pretty nice being home.

+ Ollie being a fabulous friend. I had a great time with her this weekend.
+ Seeing my parents/sister/pets/house.
+ Seeing Talisa!
+ Inside jokes.
+ Roadtripping LOUDLY.
+ White Chocolate Mochas from Starbucks.
+ The fact that I expected my final check from AE to be between $20-40 and opening the check to see it said $125.

- The fact that we never once heard Celine on the drive. What was with that?
- The traffic coming home
- The rain
- The fact that I am now exhausted
- Above all, the fact that I have a French test tomorrow morning and I have no desire whatsoever to study cause I am beat and only want to watch Frida on DVD.

So, I have an entire account of my trip to Paris, which I just returned to, but for now, I think this will suffice.

Hello there, new LJ layout, you are damn disturbing. For one thing, you do not fit comfortably on my screen, I have to side scroll. Two, where is my courier font? And holy jesus, the icon thing is at the top. And you removed the "browse" option, which I REALLY LIKED. Now you have this crazy thumbnail thing that doesn't work nearly as well.

Right now I'm tired, but not tired enough to sleep, which is sad because Ollie is asleep and I'm being quiet on my laptop. She promised me I wasn't being too loud. We watched Once and Again and the pilot of Moonlighting and had pizza and chilled. She likes my couch.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, and to those who aren't American but like the idea of a holiday where the main focus is eating vast quantities of food.

I am home, and outside it is warmer here, but my parents are doing what they do every year, and that is keeping all the windows open. "We pay for cold the rest of the year!" my mom says, because she is crazy, and therefore I am in all kinds of clothes I wouldn't have to wear at almost two in my dorm room, but oh well.

I love home. Showers without shoes. No towel shoved under the hall light out. No eating out. Walking all over barefoot. My puppy! Hooome.

And I was going to try "Guess that Fandom," but I don't have enough. Seriously, I had Alias, XF and House. That was it.

I love looking at people's icons, but I don't always *get* them - I often wonder stuff like, "Who's that guy?" or "Where's that quote from?" but I tend not to ask, for various reasons. So come on, here are my icons . Pick one (or more!) you're curious about, and I'll try to explain it. Or at least explain what I like about it.

I! Am! At! Home!

I am currently sitting on our new couches, on my laptop, which now uses wireless internet, in front of Moulin Rouge, which is playing on the ridiculously big new television my parents bought. My family is living the high life without me. In addition to all these changes, there is also a large TV in my room (I have NEVER had a TV in my room before), new dining room chairs, and new hedges out front.

It is so nice to be home! The drive up was pretty nice, aside from a few bouts of Biblical Rain, Ollie and I had a fun time jamming to Josephine II in Leonard. Then I got to see all of Ollie's hometown and her house and her familia and her beautiful, wonderful dog Gracie.

But now I am home! With my family and it's wonderful here and I'll get to shower without shoes and sleep in my own bed! And Jess comes tomorrow! And Shakira on Saturday!

Life is good.

Yahtzee, angel of mercy that she is, extended the ficathon due date by a day, therefore, I don't need to kill myself! Yippee hooray!

Today I had dinner at the Hoppes'- a real, homecooked meal that wasn't mass produced and laden down with sodium. Roasted chicken and gravy and stuffing and salad... all real and fabulous and not frozen! And Mrs Hoppe also made me a chocolate cake with frosting and raspberry jam between the layers... it was fabulous. The saddest part was leaving to come back to the dorm- I felt like I should be seeing my family or something. It was weird being there without my mother and sister, and without Amelia. Also, peeing in a bathroom where I didn't need to line the seat was absolutely amazing. Private bathrooms are vastly underrated.

My Communist Party shirt arrived, and I can't wait to show it off. It's fabulous.

House today was good... I really love Cameron, in spite of her bangs. I miss Jennifer Morrison's forehead. Come back, forehead! Come back! And the episode wasn't quiiiite as sucky as I predicted. By Wilson far surpassed the sucktitude I had ever anticipated from him. Shame on you, Jimbo!

In two days I will be hooooooome and with Jess and seeing SHAKIRA the next day, and man oh man am I excited. Now if I could only get rid of this damn cold...
