"Holy impulse buy, Batman!"

Food for thought today: For a self-professed skeptic about astrology to be such a bloody stereotype of his sign is one of life's greater ironies, I feel.

Certain people (*coughLindsaycough*) will no doubt chide me for my lateness, but I put down my pre-order for Half-Blood Prince today. At nearly half-price, even - with release-day shipping and tax, I'm paying $33 for a book that's cover-priced at $42, that I was going to jump on anyway.Score! Many thanks to Tommy for the tip - expect me to disappear on the 16th when the book arrives, along with, I'd guess, about half of LJ's subscriber base. It'll be like the Rapture in reverse.

I'd like to go on record as wishing skloak a happy birthday. I can understand you not getting a cake. I suppose it just wouldn't be the same without a naked, lickable boy jumping out of it. Better luck next time, I suppose?

Still no callbacks. It's rather depressing to think one is not even worth considering for a lowly job pushing paper around some office for a summer. The fact that my rebellious and disagreeable body mostly limits me to desk jobs is just icing on the cake.

After expressing interest in vlosk's mad scheme to room together this fall, the whole thing appears to have taken off like a Burt Rutan concept craft. He always does this, jumping headlong into his projects. It's really rather welcome, if only because it's a good balance for my "considering and second-guessing myself to the point of madness" strategy. This has been of only sporadic effectiveness.

In any case, there are tentative plans to actually go look at places on Friday. It might do me well to start packing. Just as a precaution so that if/when this mess finally does all come down, I won't be caught unprepared.

-D.

Mm. Naked lickable boys. And they'd need to be lickable, after crawling out of a cake. That's a good idea for my post-weightloss party. Do you suppose Johnny Depp and James Marsters would be available then? They'd do.

One has to envy the cake boy at that party, then.

As well as, you know, fearing for his life.

Well, doesn't *that* present some interesting opportunities.

Somebody must remember the videocamera :)

What's this? Chigbo listening to Pink Floyd? This can't be... there must be something wrong with my eyes!
