Umm. Hi.

August 27th, 2008 · No Comments

So I’m about to embark on a day-trip down to Cedar City to see Cyrano de Bergerac again (yes, it was that good), and I realized that I hadn’t posted something that I intended to post. So. A few months back I got an inquiry about helping to co-host a radio program for KBYU-FM, which […]

Happy Valentine’s Day to Good Shippers Everywhere!

February 14th, 2008 · No Comments

From Leaky: Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger Named Among EW’s Favorite Fictional Lovers I’m grinning like a loon. Also making the list are some of my favorites, like Lois/Clark, Aragorn/Arwen, Leia/Han, and of course, Lizzy/Darcy. (Oh, and remember how I was rejoicing in the sweater weather? Yeah. Yesterday’s storm, which was supposed to be nice […]

A tangled mess.

August 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

That is what I have managed to make out of my 100% hemp yarn. That’s what I get for thinking that I could wind it into a ball without the aid of a swift or even a chair back. It will probably take an hour to untangle. Joy. It’s a pretty color, though. A very […]

Random Thoughts (with a few actual updates stuck in here and there)

June 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

It’s a slow day at work. I find it rather– ironic that now, where I’m working somewhere that updating my journal from work would be perfectly acceptable, I hardly ever do it. But when I was working somewhere where doing such a thing would be frowned upon, I did it all the time. Anyway. I’m […]

The promised update

February 25th, 2007 · No Comments

Okay. Let’s see. I think I’m going to break this down into categories for ease of organization and such. 1) School: Pretty much the same. What with starting a new job and still being quite exhausted, not much progress has been made on the thesis. But things are looking up for this week. I’m determined […]

We estimate that we can provide approximately 25 minutes […]

I need to update more, don’t I?

February 3rd, 2006 · No Comments

The TA thing is going good. I gave a presentation in the class on Tuesday on the Gothic novel (they’re reading Frankenstein). Keats is up next, yay! I like Keats. We’re reading Byron in romantic lit. I’ve decided that I’m not particularly thrilled with Byron when he’s being sterotypically Byronic. I much prefer him in […]

So, today two proposals with my name on them were submitted to Lumos today. One is a panel in defense of Ginny (which should be WAY fun, if it gets picked). The other is a serious literary presentation which would be me, myself, and I. *gulps* Wanna see what I’m hoping to say? Click the […]

I think holidays agree with me.

December 30th, 2005 · No Comments

I love not having to do anything in particular at any particular time. It’s great. I’ve spent mucho time at the Quill, stayed up late and slept in, gone shopping (I got two new pairs of boots! Yay!), met up with my fellow SQUtah Quillers, locked my keys in the trunk at said summit and […]

HP Musings

November 26th, 2005 · Comments Off

I know, I know. Shocking! Emily’s posting about HP! Seeing GoF has reawakened my love for HP. Not that it was ever particularly asleep. Anyway, I’ve been re-reading canon. Sometimes I forget how truly delightful canon is. JKR is a friggin’ genius, no matter what some people say. On almost every page is a reminder […]
