So last night one of my best friends came over to my dorm and we ended up talking for six hours before he noticed all of my Supernatural DVDs. GUESS WHO'S A FANBOY.

We have of course begun an epic spring quarter marathon, although I only lasted through Dead In The Water (which we finished around seven this morning oh god I am going to hate myself for this later). My favorite part is that he is SUCH a Deanboy - he told me that he basically wants to be Dean Winchester when he grows up, which I told him was because he's only seen the first season. We'll see. But I'm really freaking excited that I found someone else (who is so awesome to start with) who loves this show! And now I have an excuse to do a massive rewatch before the finale in May. WHICH, BY THE WAY, IS ON MY BIRTHDAY. THAT'S RIGHT, I'M BRINGING THE APOCALYPSE ON MAY 13th.

SPEAKING OF! SIXTH SEASON FTMFW! I am just not ready for this to end, guys, I've only had a few seasons live. It's okay if it's not, like, S1-level awesomeness (THOUGH THAT IS COMPLETELY COOL WITH ME TOO, KRIPKE). I just want to be able to see more of their stupid faces.

Leaving at 4:00 this afternoon for a rifle match and not getting back until sometime very early Sunday morning, so will probably not be around unless the motel magically has wireless. I am going to be SO TEMPTED to watch on the bus.

Ugh I hate computer programming. I am not a damn CS major for a reason, and listening to this professor drone at 8:00am every morning is NOT HELPING.

How are you? ♥

SAY WHAT, WE WON SOMETHING?? YAY SHOW! I can't believe the shows they beat out, too! Just goes to show the importance of crazy obsessive fans. Actually, although I didn't care about the PCA at all (didn't even know they were going on, really) I'm very happy with the results. Glee! Inglourious Basterds! BBT! ALYSON HANNIGAN who I adore like crazy even if I never talk about HIMYM! I'm only surprised that The Hangover didn't win too.

Continuing my complete lack of motivation, last night they sent out an e-mail saying that the ice on the lake & ponds is now 6" thick so we can walk on it AND it showed several inches last night! So many people are skipping classes & work and just playing and it makes me so happy. There's an ice hockey game and people falling off the rope swing and just generally falling on their asses. Can't wait for tomorrow so I can join the fun. :)

YAY JARED & JEN GEN! I'm so happy for them. :)

In far less exciting news, I am so unmotivated to do any work at all that it hurts. I have only been back for three days so far! I have another eight weeks to go! Sigh. Why am I so lazy. I still have to program my circuit board & write a rocket launch program & study for my differential equations test on Friday. It's weeks like these that I miss writing essays for English classes.

Basically, I am living for this weekend so I can go out and make awesome life decisions. It's been so long since we partied that I'm almost not sick of this song anymore. Almost.
...just don't pass out with your shoes on.

FML all Threadless shirts are $9 today. Which would be awesome except I am a broke college student. But I NEED this one & this one & this one. And maybe the spoiler shirt, except not because I'd feel too guilty to ever wear it.

You know what's distracting me from cute t-shirts? There's this show tomorrow with these boys who MAKE MY LIFE. alfjdklfj SPN S5 IS ALMOST HERE. \o/

And I still feel so guilty for not being in fandom right now, except I'm never on the computer anymore! I don't want to have to actually make a schedule for you amazing, fantastic people, but I don't know how else to make this work time-wise. :/

The car is loaded up & I have a driving playlist ready to go. I may or may not have internet tonight & tomorrow, but I'm moving into the dorm Friday night and you'll probably get a picspam of everything ever.

TVaddict!chef has finished SPN S2 and, being an incorrigible Deangirl, is incensed that only Sam got dirty in S2.
Her: Can we please talk about hot, sexed-up Dean? When does he get a sex scene?
Me: Not until S4. Then they both get some.
Her: But they're really good, right?
Me (thinking about Dean's sweet & slow versus Sam's rough & dirty): It's... really not the way you'd expect it.
Her:'s together, isn't it.
adsfjkljlf OBVIOUS BOYS ARE SO OBVIOUS. SO. FUCKING. OBVIOUS. I COULDN'T EVEN PROCESS. I just sort of gaped at her and flapped around wordlessly, which she (NATURALLY) took as my utter horror at the idea of gay sibling incest. She just shrugged & said, "They act like gay lovers all the time anyway. I bet the real surprise of the series is that they aren't actually related, so then they can get it on with each other. I'm totally right, aren't I?"

Goddamn, I love my coworkers. I am seriously going to miss this job.

So I'm currently waiting for my orange line train home, which apparently has an hour-long delay. This is AWESOME because now I can write about this evening's shenanigans with [ profile] sadcypress & [ profile] beckaandzac!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince )

TRAIN IS FINALLY HERE. Time to go home and sleep before dragging my ass to work in a few hours! The moral here is to watch HP6 and to get yourself a fabulous fangirl signal STAT.

ETA The awesomeness of fangirls was too much for my life to handle or something, IDK! I fell up the steps coming home and somehow gouged a five-inch wound around my elbow, accented by several smaller ones and a neon purple bruise right against the bone. I have three extra-large bandages & I don't expect I'll be able to bend my elbow at all in the morning. WHATEVER, STILL WORTH IT. :D

ASKLFJADLKFJLKAGF 00:35. LOOOOVE OH MY GOD. BOYS. BOYS. GAY CHICKEN FTMFW. And then he follows it with "I wish he wasn't my brother" with the OBVIOUS unspoken "so I could fuck him publicly". !! I'LL BE IN MY BUNK.

Speaking of which - Jesus Christ on pie, SPN fandom, stop wanking all over the place. It's getting really messy and we're almost out of tissues. Just rewatch the goddamn video, love our boys, and play nicely. I'm so sorry for anyone who got unfairly called out in the hate meme. I love you all, I swear. ♥

So I'm seeing some dented tinhats after all this 'he's moving out! he already moved out!' business. Don't be ridiculous, you guys, you know they're just old-fashioned boys. Jensen's saving himself for the wedding night. Don't judge, it's really hard on them both - Jared Padalecki is the physical embodiment of temptation, after all.

asdjdkflaj but really, how cute is Jensen talking about Danneel?? They are the sweetest ever. I especially love that they bought a dog together.


LOVEEE. SO MUCH. NO WORDS. Hee, the glasses!

I had Important Things to discuss, like my haircut and books, but BOYS. (Haven't yet gotten to the Misha Collins reports, but I suspect they will need a post of their own.)

So. Now that that's over with, I can pretend to continue with my life (HA).

I finished AP exams and softball on Tuesday - third in the state! It's the first time we've ranked, and a home game at that. Lost 6-5 in the seventh inning, but we played amazingly and they were a good team. It's really weird to think that I'm done with softball, which has sort of defined spring for the last four years.

My birthday was yesterday, and it was nice and quiet. I began my internship, so I worked at the bakery from 11-7 and then took home their signature black&white cake, which was very pretty and delicious. I assumed I'd be observing and dishwashing to start off, but it's been very hands-on; today I was actually icing and decorating the sale cakes. It's extremely weird to think that someone is going to pay $22 for a tiny cake made by a high schooler.

My extended family often pools birthday presents together, so from my parents/relatives I got a white G1. It is extremely pretty and incredibly addictive and I'm already in love. I'm finally beginning to see why so many people love iPhones! There are a lot of great free apps, too. Any recommendations from fellow G1-users? The only thing I'm considering buying is the Microsoft Office app, which would be very useful but very expensive. I'm desperately hoping someone will code a free version soonish.

marenzi: (Default)
MY LAST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL IS OFFICIALLY OVER. Unbelievable, and it really hasn't sunk in yet, but - wow. Won our softball game 10-0 mercy rule again, which is always good. Tomorrow's senior day, where the entire class sleeps in, goes out to breakfast, and then there's 'senior speeches' to reminisce. WHATEVER, I AM DONE. Now I just have to get through four AP exams and an internship and then GRADUATION. :D

My internship is at a local high-end bakery - I know I haven't done any food posts in a while, but I love to cook - and I'll be doing a hundred hours in two and a half weeks. Yay? I'm excited. I'm starting early this Saturday because they're catering an event at the National Cathedral and they need an extra pair of hands.

So much congratulations to everyone who managed to finish their Big Bang! I'm still frustrated that my word count fell short, but there has been no time, what with it being the last few weeks of school and all. I'll still write it, it just won't be a part of the official challenge.

Today has been declared lurker amnesty day! Have you read me but never commented? Do you surf by occasionally? Here for the fic? Say hello! You are under no obligation to ever comment or delurk again, but here's a chance to do so in a post just for that.
Ahaha, this meme was made for people like me - I've been trying to comment on everyone's posts, because I know I'm a terrible commenter. Sigh.

And finally, I know April is poetry month - I'm not a fan of most poetry, but the last stanza is my journal title and my favorite ever.
the boys i mean are not refined
e.e. cummings

the boys i mean are not refined
they go with girls who buck and bite
they do not give a fuck for luck
they hump them thirteen times a night

one hangs a hat upon her tit
one carves a cross on her behind
they do not give a shit for wit
the boys i mean are not refined

they come with girls who bite and buck
who cannot read and cannot write
who laugh like they would fall apart
and masturbate with dynamite

the boys i mean are not refined
they cannot chat of that and this
they do not give a fart for art
they kill like you would take a piss

they speak whatever's on their mind
they do whatever's in their pants
the boys i mean are not refined
they shake the mountains when they dance

eta And the fabulous [ profile] girlmostlikely has hooked me up with Dreamwidth! I'm marenzi over there as well.

Jared joined Jensen on stage & they joked that they were going to reenact a scene from the finale. "It's Jensen doing a sex scene. With me".
Jared ran out to defend Misha's accusation that he'd had pec implants. And then made a million jokes about how Misha thought he was so sexy.
After he kept bouncing around and spinning in his chair and consumed an unmentionable number of Fantales caramels, Jensen told Jared to calm down and asked if anyone had any Ritalin.

Also, LOLOLOL MISHA COLLINS MAKES MY LIFE. He knows exactly what we want to hear! How did we get so lucky??
To Jared & Jensen -- "Is it weird playing brothers when you're lovers in real life?"
Question about Ed & Harry versus Sam & Dean - "Are you talking about slash fic?"
If there were an SPN musical? Castiel would be a stage manager. Sam & Dean should sing and dance and strip.
He wants to get pranked by J2, so he hangs around their trailers looking naive and innocent.
Oh, and then there was that thing where he HUMPED JARED SHAMELESSLY and Jensen got jealous.
Reports from here & here.

I love that both Jensen & Misha shot down the stupid 'who do you like better' questions. And Danneel & Genevieve are both adorable! The boys both look so happy when they're with their girls. No haters, plz.

I am so psyched that they're finally giving us an official DVD of this con. :D
marenzi: ([RPS] Soapbox Love)
Someone brought this picture and asked Jared what he was thinking. He honestly had no idea - I don't think he even remembers doing it. He said something about it being that silly time at four in the morning. Jensen, however, LOVED it. He laughed and held it up for the camera to zoom in on so everyone could see it and said, "I'm gonna get a LOT of mileage out of this one." And Jared was all "Where did you even FIND THAT?"

-- [ profile] juice817's tag

Misha Collins --
"We all hang out naked in each other's trailers."
"Maybe Castiel is just a big pussy."
"They don't act like primadonnas - much."
"Is this going to be research for some slash fic?"

Someone asked them about the wrap party and they said they didn't know, they didn't make it. They flew here yesterday to be with us instead and, to quote Jensen, "Jared and I had our own wrap party last night." Then he smirked and added, "That's why I'm having a hard time moving around this morning."
Jared is definitely more awake than Jensen is. They were late because Jensen hit "off" instead of "snooze".
One of the new writers from this year, the one who did "After School Special", apologized to Jensen. He said the guy told him that sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night and thinks "It would be SO FUNNY to put Dean in plum-snuggler shorts! and a headband! and knee socks!" and that he forgets that Jensen is an actual person and a grown man who has to DO those things the writers dream up. Jensen said he really should be apologizing for thinking of him in bed.
Someone asked them how they liked each other's movies. Jared was all 'YAY IT WAS AWESOME OMG'. Jensen sort of gave us a Look and said he didn't like Friday the 13th, didn't appreciate the juxtaposition of the story line. Then he said the protagonist was dim. Jared said, "That was a CHARACTER CHOICE. He didn't need to be smart." Jensen said, "The dude's on the roof. LOOK UP."
Someone asked Gabe if he thought the supernatural is real, and he said, "Do I believe in the supernatural in general, or do I believe Jensen really hunts demons? BECAUSE HE DOES."
Jensen was saving the last cupcake. He really wanted that cupcake. He came back to the trailer one day and it was gone, and there were greasy footprints in the trailer. Jared said, "I AM SEEING A LOT OF ACCUSING LOOKS. IT WAS NOT ME." Then he turned his back to Jensen and sort of hunched over guiltily. We all laughed, and Jensen looked at him and said very seriously, "I will KILL you."

Where has my life gone the past week?? No free time for eljay, which means I'm a few hundred flist entries behind & haven't commented. Sorry! ♥

HEY HEY SEASON FIVE! CONGRATULATIONS KRIPKE, YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD. Which means they're living together for at least another year!
"Hey dude, thinking about you, hope it's going well. Kick ass. Enjoy." [source]
ADFASDFJLKDSLJF LOVE. They are the most adorable best friends EVER. And I don't know any guys who send 'just thinking about you' texts. *tinhats*

Oh! Softball's finally started! And I don't know what it is, but I'm magically so much better than last year. Maybe I just look really good in comparison because the star players are rusty? But I've made every play and just felt awesomely right, like it's more than a fluke. My coaches both mentioned it to me and have placed me in starting infield. Fingers crossed this doesn't go away!

And I got my acceptance letters to Rensselaer & Virginia Tech yesterday/today. They were my safeties, but it's still comforting to know that if Rose doesn't work out, I've been offered scholarships renewable through grad school.

In summary, life is amazingly awesome but crazy busy. I missed the Fired Up fangirl meetup on Sunday, too - next time!

Happy (late) Valentine's Day, flist!! Am I really the only single person who still loves this holiday? Because it's really just as much about friends and family and being a schmoop. And the opportunity to embarrass as many people as possible, because ganging up on my friends in the hallway and singing 'Centerfold' as a duet is apparently my idea of a good time.

AND THEN OMFG JARED. I met up with [ profile] balefully, [ profile] sadcypress, [ profile] beckaandzac & [ profile] ciaan at Gallery Place for F13, which. It has been over 24 hours and I still have not recovered from his ASS in those JEANS, GOD. Spoilery spoilers! ) Kind of need to see it again, but am broke. Must rectify!

And afterwards we trawled DC looking for coffee and a place to sit and freak out, but two of the Starbucks were closed (WTF, DC? 10 on a Friday night? Fail.) and the third was jammed. In the interests of Jared Padalecki, we went to Hooters (I hadn't been there since Idaho, but just for the record: they do T&A pretty much the same all across America) and discussed how Jared's peen is made of diet Coke and is like one of those squishy jellytube things and generally cannot be handled by anyone but Jensen. HIGHLY INTELLECTUAL CONVERSATION, I TELL YOU. Oh my god, so much fun, and I got to meet all of these amazing, lovely fangirls and freak out about hot gay incest in the middle of a crowd. And on the metro home with [ profile] balefully, she told me she wrote Sweet Charity and Big Bang and something else all during her MCATs, so I need to get off my ass and actually write [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang by May. I have no excuse!

Yesterday was work (where I was useless because JARED PADALECKI) and then our rivalry basketball game, which was fun because all of the guys were so high on testosterone that three fights started on the court and two of their players were thrown out. But we overrepresented them at their court and won by almost double, which was way off from the tight game everyone was expecting after last time. And watched Chocolat with spiced cocoa, because there is nothing schmoopier and happier. Good times. ♥

I love every SPN episode ever, but I am still BOUNCING in GLEE. ♥

Important Things Which Make Me Squeeful:
1. Snow!! We got a good three inches on Tuesday, then a rock-solid ice coating on Wednesday, so a couple of days home from school. Prior to the ice storm, it was PERFECT snowball snow, too. ♥
Oh. But not so much love for spending forty minutes hacking my car out this morning.
2. Jared being RIDICULOUSLY STRONG is such a fucking turn-on, I cannot even describe. 335 pounds. Where is my Jared-benching-Jensen fic??
3. THIS PICTURE. Jared's arm. No, Jared's t-shirt. No, Jensen's happy-relaxed FACE. I cannot decide which is the best part, really.
4. Danneel on NCIS! How did I not mention this on Tuesday??
5. All of the batshit-crazy squee on my flist right now, because YAY. &skip=120 in less than 24 hours, though??


Yes We Can

The past 36 hours have been a whirlwind, and I can't even think of everything that's happened. Starting with last night - I got a chance to attend the Virginia Inaugural Ball last-minute thanks to a friend. He grew up with Mark Warner's daughters and his parents are like their godparents or something, so Mark called him when he found out he had extra tickets. (I will never, ever get over how connected a few of the people I know are. It's kind of insane & surreal.) We also got a chance to sit down with Mark and just talk later in the evening. Politics aside, he's a really easygoing, friendly guy - although he definitely slammed Idaho in his speech. Although I will admit we are pretty much the reddest state in the country.

I obviously felt incredibly out of my league, but it was surprisingly fun and we had a great time - the theme was Celebrating Turning Virginia Blue, which was awesome, and the cover band was fantastic. It was mostly late classic rock and there were way too many old people who knew all the lyrics to current pop songs. My friend and I desperately wanted them to play Centerfold, which is pretty much our theme song, but no luck. We still danced and generally made idiots of ourselves anyway, because we're talented like that.

And then this morning. I can't even describe some of it, because I've never experienced anything even close to it. We walked into D.C. around seven and wound up in front of the Washington Monument. Yes, it was fucking freezing, but I wasn't too bad for most of it because I wore ski clothes - my lips were numb by the end, though. Anyway, the crowds were fantastic. Every single person was so happy, so excited to be there - strangers were talking to each other, which I honestly never see in D.C.

Everything mostly quieted down during the speeches, though there were a few strong rounds of 'Hey Hey, Goodbye' & 'Hit the Road, George' when Bush was announced. And when Obama first appeared on the screens - the best kind of pandemonium. People were sobbing, praying, screaming in happiness. You couldn't possibly stand in that crowd and not believe you were witnessing history. The hope Obama has given to America is tangible.
We are the change that we seek.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
President Barack Obama

I chose this quotation for my senior yearbook page back in September. Obama's ability to inspire hope and faith in America is incredible - literally, so extraordinary it seems impossible - and I can't wait to see what the next decade will bring. Yes we can.
marenzi: ([SPN] Dumb & Crazy)
HOSHIT I'M GOING TO THE VA INAUGURAL BALL. IN LIKE FOUR HOURS. One of my friends grew up with Mark Warner's kids, so he got a bunch of the extra tickets this afternoon. I'm very excited, but I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF. HELP.
