marenzi: (Coffee & Biscotti)
Last week of DOOM was almost entirely made up for by one of the best weekends I've ever had. There were crazy parties and coffee dates and lots of really good memories. I love so many people here; I can't even imagine not living with these people over the summer. When I think back to how unhappy I was in high school versus how much I love my life now - yeah, it'll be rough. ♥

And oh god I had what I think was raspberry chamboise in pretty much the holy grail of liquor bottles - seriously, a sphere crossed with gold bands and a crystal cross stopper. It is pretty much like the most succulent, mouth-water raspberry truffle you could possibly imagine in a shot glass. But Google is being useless and so I suspect I've got the name wrong. Any help?

And finally, regarding last week's SPN episode, [ profile] missyjack posted some meta regarding Supernatural's portrayal of religion that I really agree with. Obviously spoilery, but definitely a different take than what I've seen from a lot of fans, so I recommend reading.

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.

Supernatural Sixth Season Confirmed! With Kripke! I love these boys and their stupid faces and the Metallicar. I'm in this for as long as it keeps going.

Definitely the highlight of my day, since my differential equations prof just told me (very kindly) that I need a 96% on the final to do well in the class. After an entire quarter of near-failing test grades, I am not quite sure where I'm going to pull this from. I hate math, okay? I love science and engineering and the application of math to science, but. Fuck. Straight-up math is kicking my ass at this school.

I am going to go shoot things and take my final night programming exam and then go eat chocolate & watch Firefly. Because I still have not got it through my head that at the top engineering school in the country, I can't pull effortless 4.0s anymore like I did in high school. Damn it.

edit Ahaha this is the most bipolar post ever. SHOW LOVE! YAY BOYS!... FUCK MATH! MISERY! I am not quite sure what mood to select here.

I FUCKING LOVE THIS SHOW. SO MUCH. And what I really love is when they get it so right with an episode that pretty much everyone in fandom - even the people who hate this season/the mytharc/the writing - is all \o/! WIN.

Also! The season finale is set for my birthday, May 13. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, RIGHT? Because our season finales are always full of sunshine and rainbows and brothertouching. Eric Kripke, don't you dare ruin this for me.

Our rifle match was cancelled this weekend due to snow. This is my first full weekend on campus since October and I am not quite sure what to do with all of this time. Two whole days to myself? What is this madness? Time-wasting suggestions welcome.

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. :)

I found a group of boys in Deming who all watch Supernatural! So we're going to get together Sunday nights. I'll just have to watch it on my own first so I don't scare them by shrieking at the television, haha.

Always important: SUPERNATURAL IN GENERAL. I'm not doing episode reviews anymore because my watching schedule is completely off, but (and this is never ever a spoiler) Show is my forever girl, always and always. THIS SEASON, THESE BOYS, SO MUCH LOVE. ♥

Today I had classes from 8 to 3, ran down to the career fair to meet important people and try to get in a good word for a summer internship until 4, had rifle practice from 4 until 8, and just got back from team dinner and am about to start homework. HELL YEAH COLLEGE woo. I need sleeeeep.

BUT I also had a really good target tonight that outscored one of the juniors. (Okay, he had a really shitty practice, but I am still kind of thrilled with myself.) Coach said that if I'm shooting like that in two weeks, I'll be ranking in our first match. :)

(Ahaha, I ended up coming straight back to the dorm after my last class to watch this, and my roommate was in here, and I just said SCREW IT and watched on my bed anyway, but I think I've scared the shit out of her. I'm pretty sure she thought I was having a seizure.)

So I finally own F13 & MBV3D thanks to Best Buy's screwup! I was checking online to see if the prices had dropped yet, and I found both extended editions listed on their website for $9.99. WIN. So I went into the store and found that both were still listed as $19.99. Fail. But I talked the the manager and got him to pull up the online prices, so he agreed to match it anyway. JARED PADALECKI'S ASS, WHAT.

I'd love to propose a fangirl viewing, either as an online-chatroom sort of thing or an actual meetup, but have no idea how to go about such a thing. If anyone smarter than me feels like running with this, PLEASE DO. I would definitely be in!

And I finally preordered SPN S4, so that will most likely be my first package on-campus. :D
marenzi: ([SPN] Winchester Boys)
Ahaha, anyone remember that I loaned TVaddict!chef L SPN S1? She texted me last night.
if you don't bring s2 tomorrow don't bother showing up bc you're fired. I need it now.
And then when she arrived this morning, the first thing she said to me was "This was such an awesome show until that bullshit finale. What the fuck was THAT? Does the dad die? The dad dies. Wait, don't TELL me! IS THE CAR OKAY?" SHE'S SUCH A FANGIRL. And a Dean!girl, but I'm pretty sure she's just uncomfortable with how ridiculously young Jared looks in S1. UGH HIS STUPID HAIR I MISS IT.

Anyway, Bakery of Crazy earned its name today because tomorrow is Swiss National Day, and we cater the embassy party. Which is really very cool, but of course nothing's ready and we're all running around frantically. Our freezers are literally stuffed floor-to-ceiling with about one square foot in the center. Tomorrow will be just as lovely, I'm sure. :)

If the Metallicar is the third character of Supernatural, music's the fourth. The Impala wouldn't be complete without its messy box of cassette tapes. Carry On Wayward Son is essential to every season finale. Dean's love of cock rock defines his character and his character is defined by his love of cock.

ANYWAY, I was thinking about how much I've been influenced by the show's music, both songs played in the episode and fandom interpretations. The show music got me into classic rock and has forever changed my driving playlist. Vids and fics and meta have all given me great songs or music associations, and sometimes lyrics will just make me stop and think, BOYS. Music's essential to every episode of Supernatural and it's essential to fandom as well.

[ profile] quidditchkiss compiled a fantastic ranking of SPN's top 15 music moments which I mostly agree with, and that covers most of the pre-S4 onscreen music. Then there are other songs which always create a vivid image or memory of Sam&Dean or J2 which might seem silly to anyone outside fandom, but make so much sense to me. Here's my own vid/song/music rec list with dl links! )

YOUR TURN. Tell me your fandom songs! Let me know if the links expire, I'll be happy to reupload.

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.
