I suppose the existential and very real LJ drama of the past week means that I should make an inaugural dreamwidth post. I did move everything from LJ to here; I'm a bit of a digital hoarder, which is WAY BETTER than being a real one, so let me have this. But I am trying to think of this as a bet of a fresh start and will try to post more. Writing is cathartic, and I should take advantage of a platform that allows me to do it easily.

It was interesting, in looking at my LJ, to see how much of my life it encompassed. I started that thing in 2004. And it's interesting to take stock of where I am now, and what's different. Some of the things that are the same are sad (still depressed about my love life or lack thereof, still sort of lonely), but a lot are good - I love learning and challenging myself as much as I did then, and I'm still up for new adventures. The things that are different are all pretty great. I'm about to finish my second year of law school! I've fallen in love with health law and I'm actually pretty good at it! I have great taste in margaritas! My taste in Premier League teams that can actually win shit is not good, but whatever! 

For the most part, I like the person who I've become, and I think the 15 year old me who started that LJ lo those many years ago would be pretty pleased.

Possibly less pleased that her 27 year old self had an exciting Saturday night of watching a documentary about wine fraud and then getting into bed at 9 p.m. But I did love 15 year old me's habit of wearing glasses with clear lenses because she thought it looked cool and intellectual, so we're even.

Friends cut.

Absolutely nothing personal, we just didn't connect for whatever reason. Consider this a Defriending Amnesty Day. Comments will be screened if you want to talk.

Even though I am a big old hypocrite about real-life love, I am a fictional relationship addict. So what better way to say goodbye to this decade, a decade of me learning that fandom obsessions are the best kind and a decade of some very good movies, television, and books.

So I present to you!

The Best Romances of The Aughts (In My Very Educated Opinion)

What will it take to make or break this hint of love? (Also, I have given up trying to format this thing so that you can see the right side of some of the pictures. DEAL WITH IT) )
scornedsaint: (Okay!)
You guys? I cannot stop watching the promo for Glee. It's becoming a sickness. A sickness that I want all of you to join me in.

It's by the guy who did Nip/Tuck and Popular, and it's more like the latter Popular but with (more) musicals, and both Victor Garber and Kristen Chenoweth are going to show up at some point as recurring characters.

This will be the greatest show of all time. You heard it here first.

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

1. We're gonna explode? I don't wanna explode!  Serenity, [profile] sugarsicons .

2. You contemptible pig! I remained celibate for you. I stood at the back of a cathedral, waiting, in celibacy, for you, with three hundred friends and relatives in attendance. My uncle hired the best Romanian caterers in the state. To obtain the seven limousines for the wedding party, my father used up his last favor with Mad Pete Trullo. So for me, for my mother, my grandmother, my father, my uncle, and for the common good, I must now kill you, and your brother. Blues Brothers, anonymous

3. Why should I listen to you, anyway? You're a virgin who can't drive.  Clueless, [profile] sugarsicons 

4. Oh, you were not what was desired, but that makes you no less dear to me. A boy would have been the Son of France, but you Marie Terese shall be mine. Marie Antoinette, [profile] sugarsicons 

5. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. Moulin Rouge, [profile] midnightglass

6. Were you there in Vienna, in December? Before Sunset, [profile] moomaid

7. ...'cause you people are BASTARD PEOPLE!

8. Alert the Amphibious Squadron!

9. You, you have weak ankles. One of your calves is bigger than the other. Too much makeup. Not enough makeup. What's with the skin? Say it with me SUNLIGHT. Male cheerleaders, enough said. Smile. Don't smile. Bring it On, [profile] spastic_visions 

10. Un-congratulations, you're definitely having a baby. Waitress, [profile] sugarsicons .

11. What is this? A center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read... if they can't even fit inside the building? Zoolander, [profile] spastic_visions 

12. Get your lesbian feet out of my daughter's shoes! Bend it Like Beckham, [profile] sugarsicons 

13. In the old days if an agent did something that embarrassing he'd have a good sense to defect. Christ, I miss the Cold War. Casino Royale, [profile] spastic_visions 

14. Look at it out here, it's all falling apart. I'm erasing you and I'm happy! Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, [profile] spastic_visions 

15. I'd be the worst possible godfather. I'd probably drop her on her head at her christening. I'd forget all her birthdays until she was 18. Then I'd take her out and get her drunk. And, let's face it, quite possibly try and shag her. About a Boy, [profile] spastic_visions 

....and go!

Instead of working on all the homework I have to do, because I've had a shitty day, emotionally ("So apparently the girl with the horrible deformity who gets beat up and made fun of every day for 7 years can get a boyfriend and I can't"), I am going to post a meme stolen from Hayley.

If I am lost for a day
Try and find me
But if I don't come back
Then I won't look behind me.
All of the things that I thought were so easy
Just got harder and harder each day
December is the darkest and June there's the light 
But this empty bedroom won't make anything right
While out on the landing a friend I forgot to send home
Who waits up for me all through the night
Calendar girl who's in love with the world
Stay alive
Calendar Girl who's in love with the world
Stay alive
I dreamed I was dying 
As I so often do
And when I awoke 
I was sure it was true
I ran to the window
Threw my head to the sky
And said "Whoever is up there
Please don't let me die"
But I can't live forever, I can't always breath
One day I'll be sand on a beach by a sea
The pages keep turning, I'll mark off each day with a cross
And I'll laugh about all that we've lost
Calendar Girl who is lost to the world
Stay Alive
Calendar Girl who is lost to the world Stay Alive
January, February, March, April, May I'm alive
June, July, August, September, October I'm alive
November, December, yeah all through the winter, 
I'm alive
I'm alive
-Stars, The Calendar Girl

Here's to 2007.

Hayley's last entry reminded me that I need to post something for poetry month. So, here goes: 

Voices of Poor People
A Song on the End of the World
By Czeslaw Milosz
On the day the world ends
A bee circles a clover,
A fisherman mends a glimmering net.
Happy porpoises jump in the sea,
By the rainspout young sparrows are playing
And the snake is gold-skinned as it should always be.
On the day the world ends
Women walk through the fields under their umbrellas,
A drunkard grows sleepy at the edge of a lawn,
Vegetable peddlers shout in the street
And a yellow-sailed boat comes nearer to the island,
The voice of a violin lasts in the air
And leads into a starry night.
And those who expected lightning and thunder
Are disappointed.
And those who expected signs and archangels’ trumps
Do not believe it is happening now.
As long as the sun and the moon are above,
As long as the bumblebee visits a rose,
As long as rosy infants are born
No one believes it is happening now.
Only a white-haired old man, who would be a prophet
Yet is not a prophet, for he’s much too busy,
Repeats while he binds his tomatoes:
There will be no other end of the world,
There will be no other end of the world. 

My mom had an absolutely brilliant idea for my birthday/cocktail party (April 22, 7:00-11:00! Be there!): I should use the upstairs hall, where it overlooks the living room, as a VIP area, a la My Super Sweet 16. That way, only my "special, VIP" friends can be up there with me and we can look down on the Proletariat and laugh. I love my mom.
