...except for when I fly across time zones. That's kind of like time traveling too. :]

Anyway, here, my favourite tree ever:



So, remember when I was all, "I'm going to go hiking! But not get lost!" -- well...at least we didn't get lost this time...

~epic hiking adventure~ )

Also, I don't know why it didn't occur to me until two weeks ago that I could just blend a bunch of boiled vegetables & potatoes/yams/etc together and then it ~magically becomes soup. I'd clearly thought about blending vegetables together when I first bought my mini-blender -- but even at that time, I was thinking about raw vegetables. I have been making soup for every other meal and pretty much blending anything/everything I have in the fridge. :>

1. I liked exactly three things about 7x05: spoilers~ )

2. [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse and I have really profound conversations:
cut for general inappropriateness and inability to pluralize correctly )

3. I did want to post about Serious Business, but I spent the entire day reading Harry/Snape fics (it's [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's fault, because it's always [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's fault when I spend an entire day reading fic X3) and I'm in a total fic-induced daze and nothing hurts.

Waiting for the sleeping pill to kick in so I can enjoy being dead to the world :> conference doesn't officially start until Friday, but there's a doctoral thIngamajig tomorrow and group dinners earlier tonight. I hate being in situations where I have to socialize with tons of strangers, especially when I feel that their opinion matters to me. I think I've been handling myself well enough so far. Tomorrow's events start at 7:15am, so let's see if I can last until Saturday night without collapsing from exhaustion (also hope my ego won't be demolished at the end of this conference! ;;;;;).

My temporal lobe threatened to explode on the plane today. My inner ear is still a bit sore. D:

Con Summary

Oct. 9th, 2011 11:50 pm
fishpatrol: (in ur internets...)
I want to compile tidbits that I remember from each panel that I attended (I actually tried taking notes on my phone, but autocorrect kept trying to fix my shorthand, so now I have a list of notes that barely make any sense at all ^^;;)

Mostly, I just wanted to share this 1-hr audio recording of the J2 panel. The quality is pretty good (i.e. I was able to listen to it and catch a few comments that I couldn't make out during the actual panel), so, idk, download it if you want it for your own listening pleasure. ;)

--
eta: I've uploaded the videos that weren't terribly shaky and had funny content. Please note: 1) I took these videos from the second-to-last row and I had to resort to the optical zoom on my camera; 2) but I stayed super quiet so no screams or laughter was emitted directly into the microphone of the camera. ;)

+ Misha laughing about his character in The French Mistake and his manager's reaction to the character
+ Since Jared and Jensen made him laugh so much, Misha asked for two stand-ins
+ Clif making finger-puppets on the screen and Jensen running backstage and coming back with two long tubes
+ Jared and Jensen fooling around with the tubes
+ Jared hugging Jensen (I still can't remember what the original question was ;;;; Note that the hug takes place during the first 5 seconds of the video -- the rest of the video is super shaky, and I kept focusing my camera on Jensen because there was a head obstructing my view of Jared, idk why I kept filming ;;;;;)
--

This is a pretty comprehensive summary of the panels (again, I envy those who can tweet and listen at the same time!).

This is all I've got from my mish-mash of notes:

Panels )

...and that's all I've got. My dark and blurry pictures probably aren't worth posting, but I'll go through my J2 and Misha panel videos to see if there's anything particularly awesome that I feel compelled to share. ;D

I am back from my first SPN con ever! It was pretty exciting! I am kind of exhausted and running on fumes now, but if I don't type all of it out now, I won't remember a damned thing by tomorrow. (the people who can listen and tweet at the same time are kind of amazing. I tried and failed miserably.)

ramble-y bits; written mostly for my own sake because, otherwise, this weekend will just be a blur in my mind! no specific spoiler, but there is a brief mention of 7x03 )

Okay, so, that was a huge-ass long entry. I'll post specific actor and show info in a separate entry!

1. I chipped the corner of my front tooth! On what, I have no idea! D: One second I'm licking at my front tooth (idk) and I'm thinking there's something stuck on it, and the next second I'm like, OMG PART OF MY TOOTH IS MISSING. I have nightmares about my teeth becoming loose and falling out. :(

2. My mom, trying to compliment me on my life choices or something, idk:

MOM: You're like a bomb that's still heading up in its trajectory while other people are heading down [makes hand gestures]
ME: ...did you just compare me to an Angry Bird?
MOM: XDDD

3. I thought my brain was completely fried because I just could not edit the damned paper (like, not a single thing; not even re-arrange the paragraphs), but it turns out I just reeeally don't want to work on that particular paper. I made a teeny bit head-way on a separate project and jotted down a few ideas and a few papers that I need to look up tomorrow (which, yay, every bit counts...or something). But...that still doesn't resolve the issue with the other paper. It ain't gonna edit itself and I have a meeting about it on Wednesday, ugh.

4. I refuse to leave this post on a depressing note, so, here, have a meme that's been making the rounds:

Leave me a comment with the corresponding number(s) and I'll tell you:

1 Five ways to my heart.
2 Something I feel strongly about.
3 A book I love.
4 Things I want to say to an ex.
5 Five pet peeves.
6 What I ate today.
7-26 under the cut )

Be forewarned that my answers for some of these might be on the ridiculous side, especially if I'm coming up with the answer on the spot. ;;;

I got back from my trip to the UK with [livejournal.com profile] lilie_charlotte on Friday and spent most of the weekend in a haze (ignoring my school email account, catching up on fic and LJ, sleeping and eating). It was a fun but hectic two weeks, and my vacation time is pretty much over, sadly.

This trip was my first time in Europe, my first time planning a trip without the input (or monetary assistance XD) of my parents, and my first time travelling with a friend. Our days were pretty much jam-packed and between the two of us, we took probably around 3000 photos. We somehow managed to get lost in every city we went to, even with the aid of an iPad (though, to be fair, Google Maps didn't work without wifi and the maps we'd downloaded weren't terribly detailed. ...and also, we're kind of directionally challenged ;;;), so there was a lot of: "We have to turn left here" and "No, dude, we totally need to turn right" and "WTF HOW ARE WE LOST AGAIN".

More details and photos (thumbnails; click to enlarge) under the cut!

epic lakes! epic sheep! epic pile of rocks! )

I finished the first day of my exam today, whoohoo! It bothers me that I got the last question wrong for sure (no, self, lambda can't be larger than one when it's a proportion, omgfuuuuuuu ;;;; I don't know what the correct answer is, but I know for certain that I'm 100% wrong X3;;;;), but whatever, it's done and over with! I didn't think I could sit still for more than six hours (I ended up taking around seven hours), but I managed to override my urge to just put my head down and take a nap in the middle of the exam. Tomorrow is going to be just as terrifying, but at least it'll be a shorter day! And then, one more day on Thursday, and assuming I pass all of the parts (omg, do not want to take quant again or an econ course D:) this should be my last exam ever! \o/

My collaborators are all like, can you do this and this? Oh, right, you have comps -- do them after comps, okay? And I'm all like, D: D: I want a break D: I still need to email a couple of people and tell them that I'm going to Europe and won't have internet access. X3

Also: Thanks to whomever sent me the anonymous gift! The notification was the first email I read this morning and it definitely made me feel much better before my exam -- so, awesome timing, whomever you are ♥♥!

Also-also: This Castiel-meets-the-Ghostfacers video is hilarious -- even if you're not fan of either Castiel or the Ghostfacers, the video is worth a watch. ;)

Also-also-also: I'm listening to the new Super Junior album and it's delightful ♥ And the album cover? Is lolarious~ (oh, Siwon~~~ XDD)

Today was full of fannish awesomeness! I didn't get much sleep the night before because I was scrambling to finish a write-up that I really should have completed a week ago (D:) and the thunderstorm hit just as I was about to go to bed (fml).

I was in a zombie state all morning, but my energy picked up when [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1, [livejournal.com profile] scintilla10, [livejournal.com profile] lunchy_munchy, and [livejournal.com profile] paraka all came over. So many LJ fangirls in one place! \o/ It never fails to be delightful to have the opportunity to talk about fandom and fannish things with others IRL.

Also, it's totally trippy to meet podficcers face-to-face! Every time I look away while [livejournal.com profile] paraka or [livejournal.com profile] lunchy_munchy speak, I get a sense of "Omg, it's like listening to podfic! But not! HOW IS THIS REAL LIFE." And then, when I turn back to face them, I'm all, "I recognize those voices! But not the faces! Mindboggling!" (I'm easily mindboggled, so sue me) For the first hour, I was all, "YOU'RE VOICES ON MY IPOD. COME TO LIFE." O_____O

Everyone was so nice! And sweet! And [livejournal.com profile] scintilla10 sang a filk! And we all recorded podfic! And I was just listening to the podfic that we recorded and I was all, "THEY BECAME DIGITAL VOICES AGAIN. ONLY, MY VOICE IS WITH THEIRS. HOW IS THIS REAL LIFE." SO TRIPPY, I CAN'T EVEN--

(I just had to share that. I AM MINDBOGGLED. Now I'm going to go get some much needed sleep.)
