So, technology. We meet again.

GOOD NEWS:

- I have a magic phone!

BAD NEWS:

- It's full of my brother's crap, because he didn't wipe it before he gave it to me.

- Trying to get rid of said has so far required copious erasing and restoring to factory settings, which has gotten rid of everything except THREE HUNDRED EXTRANEOUS CONTACTS WHICH WILL NOT GO AWAY, POR QUE, AND has upgraded me to the OS I did not want, to boot.

- Meanwhile, our database at work has decided to just flip all the toggles to default settings in the most recent new entries. It's not like I was using them to KEEP TRACK OF VITAL INFORMATION OR ANYTHING.

- Also, plz don't repost comments on my LJ to Facebook/Twitter, k. I work very hard to maintain my status as Facebook Amish.

HORROR

But what's even worse is the back cover:

"Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her.

With all the forces in the world conspiring to keep Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet apart, how will fate manage to bring them together? It certainly won't be easy if they're fighting it every step of the way. But theirs is a love that was meant to be, despite all the odds against them.

I believe that whooshing sound you hear is Jane Austen spinning in her grave.

Whee! I finally got all my grades back! And I did awesome! Plus I raised my cumulative GPA a point, too. Yay.

In other news, work continues to be less than fun. The receptionist is out, so I'm stuck on the switchboard, with the added joy of all the holiday mail coming in. On the plus side, there are students around to help me out. I have MINIONS, guys! So when I find difficult to sort mail, I put it back and let them deal with it. Mwahahaha.

Also, an angry German grandmother called to give someone an earful about expelling her grandson. I was kind of amused.

However, by far the most horrifying thing I've seen is the new sign in the bathroom:
If you sprinkle when you tinkle
Please be neat, lift up the seat!


I DON'T UNDERSTAND. IT IS A WOMEN'S BATHROOM. WHY, GOD.

In conclusion: why is LJ so sped in internet explorer (besides the obvious explanation that IE is evil)?

Urrgh.

So, just when I get my act together to be all productive and stuff, I am CONSTANTLY THWARTED at EVERY TURN. Like, I actually decided to research my oral presentation on the Cult of the Severed Head (isn't being an English major fun?) only to find the library has like, negative information on it. Then I'm all "Dammit, I am going to send in my forms for ASE ASAP if it kills me!", except NO ONE ANYWHERE knows my blood type, so I can't complete the medical information page, and now ASE is emailing me all like "WOE WE NEED YOUR FORMS" and I'm like "I'M SORRY IT'S NOT MY FAULT FOR ONCE". And NOW, when I'm finally all "Ok, let's get this Monroe Scholar's Project Proposal written, bitch!" my professor gets the flu and probably won't be in her office until after Thanksgiving, which means I'll have to get her signature the MORNING MY PROPOSAL IS DUE.

::headdesk::

Obviously the Universe wants me to be a giant procrastinator.

So, just got back from rehearsal with the Williamsburg Choral Guild and the Kwah. 2.5 hour rehearsals = sucks out louds. We, however, did not suck out loud. "Crying for My Dignity a Dream" remains the cheesiest set of songs ever. Furthermore, I have come up with another quibble with it. I assume the concert kind of has a Thanksgiving-y theme, what with "The Promise of Living" and all the Yay America! type songs and whatnot. So why are we singing a piece about the Lakota Sioux? Undoubtably they are just as cool as all the other American Indians, but 1) they live in Dakota territory, far away from the original colonies, and 2) of the many encounters with the American government, most were along the lines of the Battle of Little Bighorn. So yeah, not exactly a Yay America! association with the fighting and land-snatching and all. I'm annoyed that whoever picked this piece probably didn't bother to think beyond "Hey, Indians go with Thanksgiving!" and didn't bother to find any Wampanoag songs or anything. It's like singing in Spanish instead of Polish, cause hey, they're both in Europe.

Also, I will never be able to take it seriously. There is meaningful narration and multiple rainsticks. The people who wrote Pocahontas would go "Say, this is a bit much".

In other news, I made more SPooN icons! 'In My Time of Dying' Iconses )

Dear Registration,

I HOPE YOU SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST IN AN INCREDIBLY PAINFUL EXPLOSION VISIBLE FROM SPACE, SO EVERYONE WITH ACCESS TO A SPACE STATION OR VIDEO SATELLITE CAN SEE AND POINT AND LAUGH AT YOU AND MOCK YOUR LEGACY FOREVER.

Scornfully yours,
Dave

P.S. YOU SUCK SO MUCH. GIVE ME MY CLASS BACK.

I hope everyone has been bewaring the Ides of March.

In related news, today registration assassinated me in the forum (registratio me in foro interfecit, credo). Apparently not only are they refusing to count my Intro to Cultural Anthropology class for my GER, but I am also not even registered for my Victorian Novel Class. Gaah. So tomorrow I must go and make myself hated at the Registrar's Office. Registratio malissimus est. Ego id non amo.

Now I shall go to bed.

Dear Registration,

Well, I see it has once more come to this. I thought we had parted, if not in peace, than in mutual non-botheration. Apparently, my optimistic naïveté has only provdided fuel for your sadistic pleasure.

I HATE YOU WITH THE FIERY PASSION OF A THOUSAND BLAZING SUNS )

Disdainfully yours,
Me

On the other hand, I finally got a raise! A whopping 5¢! Now I actually make a reasonable amount each day instead of one normally reserved for stuff you buy from tv infomercials.

Dear Registration,
