I'm having Some Issues burning right now, and I had to give myself a time out so I didn't set my desk on fire.

Just finished up an act of TV. It can be nice, after one has written several days of serial killer slash family melodrama woeangst, to write some fun fluffy sarcastic magic stuff. I like taking a break from work with other work!

I'm having trouble embedding videos, but this little girl's facial expressions are killing me.
So, I've been back in Austin for a week after a week of Spring Break. I finally got some time this morning and I thought I'd catch up on these type things, and couldn't believe I hadn't posted here since March 5th. That's pretty impressive when I really only didn't have internet access in that span for a week, and even then had to go to the library to check email for students twice.

It's been really busy. I know I've said that before, but the crunch has commenced. A bunch of us were talking before class yesterday that we'd been busy before, but not like this. The only break I've taken since Sunday is two hours to watch the KU basketball game. And even then, I was working during the commercials. Thesis, thesis report, TV pilot, spec script, feature polish, two classes' worth of grading (which is coming to around 250 pages a week to read and grade), finding an apartment and job before we move to LA, and God bless UT, but a random history of greece class. UT Laura and I actually scheduled time today to watch a movie. Sneakers! Yay!

I just typed, "Hopefully in less boring news," but then couldn't think of anything less boring to write. Which is another reason I don't think I've posted since March 5th, because I don't think anyone's interested in a daily breakdown of writing time.

I'm so busy with school that it's important to find small projects that aren't school related so I don't get burnt out. Tonight I catalogued all my books into a program called Library Thing. Here's my online library, which I think is pretty cool. I can buy another 50 or so books before I have to upgrade to the paid account, so I should be good for a couple of years, I would hope. It was amazing, but I think a good half of my books were from school, that I hadn't bothered to sell back.

And now I'm three weeks behind on Heroes and 24. Awesome.
Oh, Starbuck.

Boom, boom, boom.

Went and saw Zodiac today, which was AMAZING. Like, I seriously, seriously loved it a lot. It was two and a half hours long, and I was literally leaning forward and sitting on the edge of my seat (for reals, not for metaphors) for most of it. Also, Jake Gyllenhaal was supremely beautiful and I'm very happy that we will someday wed.

I found this website that translates things in and out of different languages and spits out the final English translation; like what we used to do with Babelfish, only a hundred times more ridiculous. I've been laughing at this all night. Here is the translation of that first paragraph of this post:

"It has gone to see that the animal has regulated today the ASTONISHMENT was. Axis, I have appreciate serious, seriously a lot. They were two and a half of the hours of the length and is supported to me literally in the front part and they are seated to me on the edge of my center (for the reals, not for the metaphors) for relative the greater section. Jake Gyllenhaal was ulteriorly beautiful supremely and I is very lucky that we wed one day sake."

"Where AM I?"

"Oh right, holding an Oscar."


Trufax: these pictures brought a tear to my eye.
