Just for posterity, I want to say here that I do not support the Jervis Tetch/Alice Pleasance pairing. However neat it may be.

I've just had a rather interesting two hours of French, somehow instilling my teacher with a bizarre fetish for the word 'gonads',
Other than that, well...I had an English exam yesterday. I think I did reasonably well on it, but that's not what I want to talk about right now. What I want to talk about is the way I got to Sixth Form yesterday. =)
The weather was what most sane people would describe as naff, but for me it was utterly wonderful. My hair was wet, my clothes were wet, and my brolly was lying alone and unused in the back of my bag. For once there was nobody around, so I sang.
When you go to Sixth Form singing hymns, pop, and Carroll poems, you know you're in a good mood.
The test itself was pretty mundane, but I think I got through it well enough.
Hoping everyone's okay!
"Well, as ya can see: I go back and forth, that's right, side to side."
Please excuse the random Doctor Steel quote, I'm just in that sort of mood.
Martin Short's creepy laugh from Alice In Wonderland is now my message tone. While I doubt anyone will agree with me, this is, in my opinion, teh r0xx0rs. =D I now have a renewed appreciation for the guy, rather than just seeing him as "The guy in Captain Ron who isn't Kurt Russel."
Oh, and also I can has meme: =D
Let's start the new year off right; The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.
Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!
I know I'm not around much, but I'd change that if I could. So if anyone here's curious about anything, then, hey.
Loved the book, love the film.
'Nuff said. =D
Well, Christmas/Yuel/Annual Present Day is just a week or so away, and I'm rather looking forward to it. =)
I got a little annoyed last week by Christ Church's sudden decision to take the town centre hostage by blocking the main high street and trying to give out DVDs about putting the 'Christ' back into 'Christ-mas'.(I have absolutely no problem with religious expression, but when you're blocking the main route through town and forcing everyone to squeeze through the tiny gap in front of the card shop, you're bound to irritate more than a few people.)
It'll also be my first holiday without my dad, so of course it's gonna be a little bit weird for me. (Don't worry, he's not dead. I just don't live with him any more, and I also don't get along with him too well in several regards)
We're all having great fun at Sixth Form. We've done our Christmas balloon debate (I got second place as the Virgin Mary, and Elvis won by a landslide. Figures.) and I'm busy giving out presents to different mates. Most people are just getting the old box o cadbury's roses treatment, but I've bought one huge basket of flowers, a scarf, and some Living Dead Dolls too. =)
All in all, I'm feeling pretty good. I still get pretty depressed sometimes (occupational hazard of being possibly bipolar), but I'm dealing with it, at least for now.
Hugs to everybody,
Cwelfin's Stupid Tip of the Day: No matter how much you love a certain song, and no matter how much it reminds you of a certain Batman villain, it is not a good idea to start flailing around the study room and delcaring to everyone that they are all a part of 'the new generation'.
Honestly though, I just cannot get enough of that bloody song.
Also, I'm beginning to form a theory that all of fandom is somehow connected. (Well actually, I believe that all life is somehow connected, but it's a helluva lot more obvious in fandom) Observe:
Exhibit One: I really like Alice In Wonderland.
Exhibit Two: I really like Batman.
Exhibit Three: Most of the online bat-fans I've encountered like Alice In Wonderland, as well as American McGee's Alice, Silent Hill, Rammstein, cheesy horror films, and several other things which I really like.
Conclusion: Everyone is fandom is, in fact, the false alias of an omnipotent super-geek who likes Jervis Tetch, Lewis Carroll, Batman, rock music, videogames, and every type of horror stuff imaginable. This, of course, includes myself, which provides quite the paradox...
Yeah, I know, I'm weird. Deal with it. =P
"We Are...The Artificial Soldiers.
We Speak...Without Thought...
We Are...We Are...We Are...
The New Generation."
Okay, I know this sounds a wee bit daft, but would anyone here mind going to aliceeverfalling.com , going to the music section, listening to New Generation, and giving me a little help with figuring out the lyrics? The problem is, it's not an official mainstream song, so no websites I know of have the lyrics uploaded. Any help would be seriously appreciated. =D
(Oh, and apologies for the contrite capitalisation of almost every word.)
Read Or Die is now my all-time favourite history-centric anime mini-series with lesbian undertones. If you haven't seen it yet, it's certainly worth a look. My favourite E-Jin would have to be Genjo (whom I call Stick Man) and Otto Lilienthal (whom I call Aviation Man). Seriously, there's something almost lyrically kickass about two women on a giant paper aeroplane trying to gun down a clone of a dead German scientist.
Other than that, I'm doing pretty well as usual. I'm waiting patiently for December to come around. Oh, and since this is the first time I've been on in about a week, expect a little carpet-commenting. =D
Cwelfin Jelk's Tip Of The Week:
* While listening to Magnum is apparently highly conductive to writing long analytical essays, watching Batman is not.
I'm havin great fun writing essays and whatnot, and even though I've had a little trouble meditating on my options, right now I feel better. I've also developed a bizarre tea-drinking habit that I'm sure wasn't there last month. I'm putting it down to hormones and all thatm considering I couldn't bare to touch the stuff last year, and now I'm having about four or five cups a day. (Excessive much?) Though to be fair, I suppose I've changed a lot in general since coming to Sixth Form. Don't get me wrong, I'm still obsessive, bizarre and more than a little neurotic, but this year I feel...stronger. I'm coming top , or close to topin most of my subjects, I've got a lot more friends, I guess this is what it means to come out of your shell, or find yourself, or whatever the heck you want to call it. Whatever it is though, I love it.
Had great fun last week dressing up as The White Rabbit for Children In Need. (First time I've worn anything even remotely girly in months!) Also I've been elected as Sixth Form representative, which isn't that important, but at least it's interesting.
Also, I am in serious need of Batman Mad Hatter icons, so if anyone can reccomend a person or group where they'll take requests, then I'd be really grateful. =) I only need some simple ones, and I already know sites with BTAS picture galleries, so...yeah. I'm the sad sort of person who wishes she had a userpic for every single emotion concievable, from apathy to zealous fandom. =D (Speaking of which, please excuse my bizarre choice of icon today, it was the closest thing I have to 'feeling kinda tired'.)
As always, wishing you well,
Hey guys... =D
Ugh, I haven't been able to get online much, but I'm still having a lot of fun. As I said before, Sixth Form is half-fun, half-challenge. I mean, Psychology is absolutely fascinating, and I'm getting great results, but I'm already pondering over what I might drop next year. Oh well...
Aside from that I've been re-watching my BTAS DVDs, and mostly chilling. Oh, and I've renewed my library card after about seven-ish years. I've gotten out about ten books on writing. I really want to improve my skills, but it's a bit frustrating. I don't exactly have much time between essays and experiments and whatnot, so it's not as if I can spend five hours a day writing. Also, I'm not exactly the most disciplined person in the world. (Still working on revising that SH fic). The problem is that I'm a total perfectionist, and whenever I'm writing my first draft, I always get the temptation to start over again, which means I often don't get past the first chapter.
I'd say that's about it really. Still can't get online much, still can't write much. I hope you're all doing well, and I'm sorry if I've missed anything.
