I got me a new lj because this name no longer amuses me. If you care, I am now last_radio. If this looks like an attempt to make people take me more seriously... Shut up.

Sooner or later I will go through and re-request friend status with those who require that sort of thing.

So my brother got his girlfriend two fish yesterday. They died last night. So I'm being helpful, you know, trying to help him figure out why. Conversation goes something like this:

we had, uh, a round-ish sort of tank thing, yeahCollapse )


*headdesk*


IN OTHER NEWS, the wellymuck prompt is in Russian, which is causing me all manner of glee, but also minor spasms because the accents are in the wrong places... but then when I paste it into a txt window they move to the right places, and I am SO CONFUSED.

I am way too amused by this. ... Actually, I've been way too amused with this for about a year now.

Just a friendly announcement for anyone who was wondering when I would fall completely into the abyss of dweebiness:

deathofletters and I have a new project.



Ni tradukos kibican-fikcion al Esperanto, instigi mondan pacon, asistadi internacian komunikon, kaj vigligi geja amon sen lingvan limon.

IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE to the random Esperanto speakers apparently patrolling the internet and/or my lj, because I am so new at this. But if translating The Illiad can teach you Greek, this can teach me Esperanto. Or something.



(And the people said: Balancu sur.)

Exegesis: Epilogue

Apr. 8th, 2006 | 05:56 pm

I am victorious, though a day late. Take that, Ephesians.

Also: I have some money and, therefore, food now. Which is not to say that I have not been eating for the last week, just that I have been eating only apples and a spare lunch kit I found in a box under my bed (non-perishable! non-perishable!) and frozen blocks of broccoli and the little box of cookies which my roommate forced me to take and for which she will not let me repay her, grrrrrrrr. And also a Quaker banana bread breakfast bar, but it turned out my tongue was allergic to that, or something -- just, you know, ow swollen ow -- so no more.



CORRECTION! Next semester might look like this instead.Collapse )

Я не знаю что я хочу делать.


Also! Because I have all this free time now and do not know what to do with it (I was supposed to be in New Orleans this weekend, stupid paper) -- have some music, wot.


"Boy on the Moon" - The Daylights
"Hello Conscience" - The Zutons*
"Gone Are The Days" - The Magic Numbers*
"Sufragette City" (Live) - Franz Ferdinand and the Scissor Sisters - kind of sucky quality, but it makes me giggle - taken, entirely legal, from the Franz site. Fan one. Or something.

* From Help: A Day in the Life, which you should buy, because's it's for a really, really good cause, and generally awesome, and I feel sort of guilty putting songs from a charity album up on the internet. But! I am not putting up the Radiohead or the Coldplay, or the Belle and Sebastian, or the Maximo Park, Razorlight, Kaiser Chiefs, Keane, Babyshambles (better track than most on the album, really), Damien Rice or Coral tracks... So there are still plenty of reasons to buy it. Because you're all too good of people to pirate the whole thing, right? Right?

Exegesis Pt. 2

Apr. 7th, 2006 | 01:02 am

"Well, it could be worse. It could be Leviticus."
-deathofletters

New academic conclusion: There is one body and one Spirit, one calling, one hope, on Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, one church, one purpose, one eternity, one heaven, one hell, one Satan, one sin, one life, one death, one planet, one ocean, one continent, one people, one truth, one more use of the word one before I go insane and I don't give a flying flip what the original Greek translation is.


I would rather be writing wellymuck.

Exegesis

Apr. 6th, 2006 | 02:49 pm

I get to squeeze 10-13 pages of academic research out of Ephesians 4:1-6Collapse ) ...

In less than 24 hours.

Whoo boy.

So far my academic-research-based conclusion is that the church at Ephesus was full of jealous, squabbling bastards, and Paul was being far too nice.

F: Stranger Things Have Happened (R/S, PG)

Apr. 5th, 2006 | 01:21 pm

Stranger Things Have Happened, PG, 750 words. For Day 5, sort of... I was listening to it, right, but I don't know that it has any bearing on what came out, so perhaps my toes are in line to be eaten? Many thanks to deathofletters for the help. ♥ And I am behind now, augh.

I am not really the sort of writer who should play with punctuation in any way, but I did, so ha.Collapse )
