Friends Only

These days, a good portion of my journal is public - mostly when it's me rambling about Amateurish Scholarly Pursuits, going crazy about Things I Like, etc. If for whatever reason, however, you're interested in reading more about my personal life and everyday goings-on (which, I grant, are terribly interesting), comment here before adding me. I like making new friends, but I pretty much just ignore people who add me without so much as introducing themselves. So drop me a line first, ok? :)

I'm moving!

For various reasons, I wanted to start over with a new account. I'm moving over to lucymonster, come friend me there if you like. :)

Happy Hour

The colours make you dizzy. Cracked
Lips, glazed eyes.
Light another cigarette.
“You only live once,” they tell you gravely,
And life’s too short, your body’s too frail.
Perishable. A rotting carcass waiting
To happen.
She smiles at you from the corner of the room
And you’re in too deep, and she’s miles away.
Ash and cinders fall from your lips as you
Brace yourself for the coming ordeal.
“How are you today?”
“Nice weather, isn’t it?”
Later tonight you will lie on your back
Staring up at the roof and you’ll ask:
“Why can’t I give myself to this?”
But you’re in too deep
And she’s miles away
From the dark place you live.
You’re just a carcass waiting to happen,
Waiting for tomorrow to wash you away.
For now, you smile and
Play along to pass the time until you
Fade.

You should probably all know

I managed to survive two whole days of ASTs (scaling exams) without ONCE throwing myself off my chair, screaming "he's got Sirius!" and faking a fit.

Untitled

She is pointless, heartless drama.
Hollow smile, a canvas smeared with rainbow lies.
He is the embodiment of
All that she has ever wanted,
Everything she knows she can’t control or recognise
Inside herself.
She lights a candle, glows with bright ideas,
Wax drips into her eyes.
She loses sight and she can’t feel, and she can’t fight.
The night falls and she dreams of falling,
Falling in love or just falling apart.
Sun rises and she catches fire
And leaves a trail of ash along the path.
She is dark and dust and cinders,
Not worth saving, not worth waiting.
When the summer rain comes she’ll be chalky
Slush on the sidewalk; nothing more.

And check out the rest of the lineup!!

It's official. Last year got a bit messed up, we arrived too late and my sister got sick so we had to leave early. THIS year, I will turn up at fucking 6am if needs be to make sure I get in on time. And there is nothing in the world that can come between me and barrier for the MCR set.

WHO ELSE IS AS PUMPED AS I AM?!?!?!?!?!

Lol

Wow, guys, check this kid out.

Cutest random internet stalker I've had since that one girl who created like ten different accounts for the purposes of spamming me with 'go kill yourself emo bitch' comments. :D

Sorry flist, just felt like sharing my little ego trip. Today is boring!

I seriously cannot stop listening to Silverstein's new album.

Shane Told is officially my homeboy.

(Although the 'went' in that lyric pisses me off. He's not an expert on grammar, I fear.)

Haha, so I totally got metaquoted. There was this whole thing, the kind of thing that involves Aragorn bleeding back to the sound of Evanescence over his unrequited love of Legolas.

I am...mildly scared. :P

PS. OH HOLY MOTHERFUCKING GOD LIVEJOURNAL CAN DETECT WHERE I LIVE!!! NO REALLY IT JUST DID! WHERE DID THAT BUTTON COME FROM?!?

Writer's Block: Le Quatorze Juillet

Happy Bastille Day! Today the French celebrate the event that sparked the French revolution. In honor of our Francophone friends, what is your favorite French thing? Bonus points for answers en français.


Moi, j'adore la cuisine français. Quand j'etais en france, j'avais passé des heures dans les petits cafés et restaurants françaises. Et, j'sais pas pourquoi, mais j'ai trouvé le meilleur restaurant italien du monde en france. Miam miam. :)
