I'm a dorkety dork dork

(no subject)

It's 1 am. I have a 3-4 page mock comp proposal due in 10 hours that I haven't started. I spent the evening wasting time, as usual. And now I update LJ instead of working on this paper! Weeeee! *collapses* Oh yeah! Guess who else is in this lab? Rose! Who never shuts up! I'm not going to get much sleep tonight. And I'm not going to miss any more classes this semester (so far I've only missed 3, but 2 of those were in the last week). So I'm gonna get this thing done, go to bed, get an hour or two of sleep, and promptly fall asleep in my first class and drool all over myself. Oh well. Tomorrow is the Day of Silence anyway, so it's an excuse to not talk in class (I never do anyway).

Dammit... make the creative urges stop! I want to draw a bad stick figure comic of Argo people beating up Eddie in a dark alleyway and Jenn not stopping us! Must... write... proposal... of... comp... I'm... not... actually... going... to... do... *goes nuts and devours keyboard*

Wooo, it's the Day of Silence and I'm covered in rainbows. I got a free t-shirt, and I'm wearing a rainbow armband and a card thingy that says "Day of Silence" and what it's all about. Plus, I'm wearing my Powerpuff Girls shoes with the rainbow laces. I feel so... gay. And happy, because rainbows are pretty and they make me happy. Of course, being silent makes communication interesting. I've been using nonverbal communication and writing for that. I decided that I can still write today, because I'm still technically being silent. Plus, I think I write more than I talk, unless I get really hyper. I communicate better in writing too. I think I'll keep quiet until dinner time, then I can let loose and go back to saying things that come out horribly wrong ("I don't like them long... the straws, I mean... I have to cut them, otherwise I'll end up poking myself in the nose or something... aaahhhh, why does everything I say come out wrong?!?!?!?!").

I thought of all sorts of important things that I wanted to say on the way over here, but I'm feeling lazy. I only got around 2 hours of sleep last night, thanks to the mock proposal due today (finished it this morning, of course). Well... the proposal combined with watching TV with Ben and Derek until after midnight, then talking to Nick online instead of writing the proposal in the wee hours. Oh yes, and Nick wants to come visit this weekend! He misses people, and he wants to see the play, so we're going to go see that on Sunday. Anyone else going? Speaking of plays, I wonder if I could somehow coerce someone into driving me to Slippery Rock next week, because one of Megan's plays is going to be performed. It's only 10 minutes, but it's still really awesome that it's being performed. And Megan is an awesome writer too... I miss our high school days, getting out of class to go to the gifted room place and enter writing contests and stuff and at least get an honorable mention half the time. 'Twas great. I hope we can both graduate at the same time despite being in different grades (or is it "years" when you get to college?) and then get an apartment while trying to get employment and stuff. Anyway, plays. Maybe I can get Ben to drive. Oddly enough, he's willing to do just about anything I ask. Plus, he needs to meet Megan, and she needs to meet him. For they would really get along.

Methinks I need a nap. Sleep would be nice. *collapses* The other stuff I wanted to say can wait for another entry, when I feel more like writing and less like sleeping.

Dammit, Good Tom thinks he can outgay me! I stayed mostly silent until dinner time because you don't necessarily have to stay quiet all day for the Day of Silence. I did cheat a bit - I talked to my cats and sang along with my music, but nobody was around to get after me for it. But Good Tom decided to be quiet even through dinner... which of course left him open for ridicule. And I got the ridicule at lunch too. I was preventing Ben from leaving and doing work (as usual), and I grabbed him by the wrist so he couldn't leave. Then some people made jokes about us being attached, and Derek started humming the wedding song, so I replied with a single finger. Gotta love nonverbal communication.

You know, I think I'm getting over the ohmygoshmysisterisdatingandkissingboys shock and moving on to the hahahamysisterisdatingandkissingboysnowIcanmakefunofher stage. It's payback for her constant teasing about my guy friends. Yeah, I hang out with boys all the time. Go me. I'm not seeing any of them, yet every time I mention a guy friend, she'll go "oooooh!" or something. Well, I do the same with her. We're so immature. But hey, what are sisters for? That's right, teasing! Weee!

Yeah, so I never got that nap. But I don't particularly care, I'll sleep tonight. I decided to knit instead and decided to make my own pattern for a bag-like thing, even though it will probably come out all wrong and I'm using cheap yarn. Black yarn. Yep, I'm a dork, and I'm darn proud of it. Experimentation produces interesting results. Say, I wonder if we have Golem tonight. Probably not, but I'll hang out in the living room in case Ben or Derek or anyone else shows up. Then we can watch movies or TV or something! I feel like watching Lilo and Stitch.

Another pointless bit of rambling brought to you by Ade, who is once again feeling loopy for no reason. Huzzah!
