Writer's Block: Secret song

What's the most embarrassing CD or track in your music library? How often do you listen to it? Do you share it with your friends or keep it to yourself?

Hmm. Well, I own exactly eleven CDs, so there isn't much potential for embarrassment there. I guess Love Songs from WWII? I don't find a lot of people who appreciate songs from the 1940s who weren't alive in that era. I'm not embarrassed, though! :P

umm, gross

This site makes me want to never, ever, EVER eat anything again. Ever. Seriously, just looking through this site makes me feel sick to my stomach. Especially the meta meat cake and Tony's BLT. That meat cake is the grossest thing I have ever seen in my life, and I have seen some nasty things (haha, speaking of which, today I saw blood spurt twenty feet across the room and hit the wall).

Friday Fannish Five

Five canon moments that turned a character into a favorite character.

1) Ultimate Marvel Quicksilver - When he's sitting in the Savage Land with Wanda, talking about how Magneto called his power "effeminate" and that he cries himself to sleep over his father's insults. Aww. And then Wanda hugs him. (Hello ship! XD)

2) Gregory House - In the episode "Three Stories" (still my favorite!), when Stacy calls his name in the clinic and he isn't expecting to see her there. He turns around, says her name, and has this look on his face. That was when he became "that funny and rude doctor" to "wow look at how deep this character truly is."

3) Rorschach - When he's escaped from jail, returns to his apartment, and confronts the landlady about the lies she told the press about him. When she asks him "not in front of my kids," he looks down at the one and sees himself in the kid's face. Aww.

4) Dexter Morgan - During the first episode of the first season, he talks about his relationship with Rita. She's suffered horribly at the hands of her ex-husband, which has left her scared of sex and intimacy. He says, "I chose Rita because she is, in her own way, as damaged as me."

5) Deadpool - During the Mark Waid mini, when he goes Phantom-esque about his missing mask and is afraid of Terry seeing him without it. ♥

Umm...I like woobie moments! XD

After watching the latest episode of House tonight, I was kind of disappointed to discover that I just don't care anymore. I don't care about the characters or what happens next. Sigh. The first two seasons of the show have apparently ruined me completely; they were so good, and the past few seasons have been absolutely no match. Why do I keep watching this show week after week? I don't even know. :P

My books are getting out of control again, which is no big surprise. ;) I have 379 books that I own and need to read. I read 189 books in 2009. At this rate, it'll take me a little over two years to read my "to read" pile, provided that I don't buy any new books. And considering the fact that I buy at least 10 new ones a month...umm, yeah. And that doesn't even include the books I check out from the library! Or the ones that I get for free. But, really, is there such a thing as too many books?

I will ignore the fact that boxes of unread books line almost every single inch of free space I have at the moment.

I will also ignore the fact that I store books beneath the sink, in the bathtub [when not in use], and in my car because there's no room left in the apartment.

I read twenty books in the month of January - surely that is a good start, right? ;)

I am very, very slow

I had no idea until today that Hugh Laurie is Mr. Palmer in the 1995 version of Sense & Sensibility. NO IDEA. LULZ. How many times have I watched that movie and watched House? And I've always loved Mr. Palmer in that version...hahahaha.

hooray Friday!

It is the weekend, and that means I have survived another week. Hooray!

I bought this yesterday. I may not be into Phantom right now, but I could not pass this up, especially since it was listed at $79.99 and I snagged it for $24.99 (not including tax). Plus Halloween is my favorite holiday, and one can really not have too many Halloween things.

I woke up this morning, stumbled into the bathroom, and found one of these waiting for me on the bathmat. It looked more scared of me than I was of it, and I quickly squashed him (her?) with a shampoo bottle. To give you some perspective, the spider was about an inch and a half long, including the legs. Eww.

Did I mention how happy I am that it's the weekend? ;) Only seven more weeks to go before finals!
