Living in DFW is usually a blast. I get metropolitan living without actually living in a population crush like LA or New York.

Today though, I bring to the table two complaints:

1. This weekend will be an absolute nightmare. I'll be ducking my head under my wing and being more hermit-y than normal until this whole event is over. I don't care what they say about the Super Bowl revitalizing the local economy. I'm mightily embarrassed that people from all over the nation are going to see how poorly we maintain our highways and major roads. Hopefully the potholes don't damage people's rental cars. =/

2. Coldest days on record in 15 years? I live in the south to get away from the below-freezing temperatures, and now you're telling me that I have to put up with possible below-zero temperatures? Not cool, mother nature. Not cool at all. >=O

On the other hand, this cold weather did ice things up rather spectacularly, and because of that I got to stay home. Still had to work from home, but instead of sneakily reading fanfic at work in the lull between answering calls and emails, I hopped on Runescape and blatantly played. It was great, got a lot of stuff accomplished on there.

Not so great: will have to brave the roads tomorrow, and I think the only difference between today and tomorrow is going to be the lack of rain. Roads will still be icy; nothing besides sand will be laid to encourage the melting of said ice because, oh yeah, we're not going to get above freezing tomorrow so it'll all freeze right back up again.

Just... if I don't post again, know that I enjoyed lurking and reading all your journal entries, and I wish I'd spoken up a bit more. I would have rejoiced with your triumphs and offered a shoulder to cry on for your sorrows if I wasn't so concerned that you'd be eying up my comment and giving me shifty-eyed side-glances wondering, who the hell is this and why are they commenting here?

Now, though, I need to go to burrow under my blankets and see if I can thaw out my fingers. Maybe I can coax the heater masquerading as a chihuahua into snuggling with me. Might even throw some Final Fantasy 13 from the comfort of my mattress into the mix. Sounds like a plan....

Also, finally figured out where to go to add links to my sidebar. I'm having conflicted emotions of jubilation because, hey, I can add links!, and shame because, goodness gracious, girl, how long have you been on this website? and you're just now figuring shit out?

That is all.

I feel like crying. Seriously. Big, fat tears of despair.

Into a new fandom. Assassin's Creed, particularly. This game has consumed me since my brother got it for Christmas, and while I'm not too fond of the overarching plot, the individual ones are intriguing. Naturally, the only place I know of to get a decent amount of fiction to peruse is the pit.

Why? Why?! I want to poke out my eyes every time I see a summary about someone playing their Xbox and getting sucked into the game, or about the main characters being protected by original characters. These are master assassins, people, nearly legends in the assassin line, and I really doubt your rinky-dinky female whose family was murdered two weeks ago can really match the abilities of someone who has years or, in one case, a lifetime of experience. Seriously.

Oh,, sometimes you scare me. Or, you know, disgust me. 'Cuz reading about how someone picked up their "bowel of popcorn" from the counter, or how they "dropped their bowel in his lap" just...really, really grosses me out. Or amuses me. But mostly disgusts me.

In other news, I have another week of summer classes, and then the madness shall end. Whoever convinced me that working full-time and then going to two evening classes, and somehow managing to squeeze in transit time ('cuz class, work, and home are all over the freakin metroplex), homework time, and sleep time was completely doable is completely freaking insane deserves ants in the pants steered me onto the road to insanity is a big fat liar.

Sleep. Kingdom Hearts. My life. I shall return to you after next week is over. I promise.

No posting when sleep-deprived. You have a bizarre habit of addressing yourself in third person. Knock it off, it's creepy.

/Note to self

So...yes. Insomnia, my old buddy, has come to stay for a bit. I wish it wouldn't just drop in unexpectedly like the rude house guest it is, and I hope it leaves just as quickly as it came. Seven hours of sleep in two days when I normally average fourteen to sixteen just ain't gonna cut it. I haven't done anything monumentally stupid yet, but it's only a matter of time....

House premiered tonight! Yay!

"Hmm...this kidnapper is...bold..." FTW!

In other news, school is going well. I was able to stay in Spanish, and I'm having the first test on Thursday. Every other class is going well. The work piles up, but I enjoy it.

Application to nursing school is due this Friday. I have nearly every bit done. Ironically enough, the part I thought would be easiest (getting my various transcripts) is a pain in the arse, and the bit I figured would be difficult (getting a TB test after I was re-enrolled on my father's health insurance) was a breeze. Tomorrow, I'm going to call up a university and complain. I sent in a transcript request on Friday marked "same-day processing", and I still haven't heard anything from them.

Other news...errr....nothing, really. I'm re-reading Buso Renkin right now, and am reminded of how much it made me laugh the first time around. I can't wait for October, as many of the manga I'm following release new volumes then. Just 10 more days....

So, it's April. In Texas. Which means spring has officially begun and all that nice stuff. It should soon be hitting the 80s and we'll all be walking around in our spring clothes, lamenting May and the beginning of the heat waves.

So why exactly is this white stuff falling from the sky?

Yes, that's right. It's snowing. In April. It boggles the mind. My speech teacher has lived here for 50 years and said, that he remembers, it's never snowed this late. It didn't stick, but it's the thought that counts, right?

Well, I suppose I've blathered enough for the night. *slinks off for studying*

Edit: That wound up coming out longer than expected. I suppose I'll do the courteous thing and lj-cut. ^_^
