Several things have happened this week, but the most important two are as follows:

- I went dumpster-diving for the first time in my life
- I got my tongue pierced yay yay yay oh god it still hurts so much.

The trash-picking was the result of a direct order from my lecturer. Repulsive, but materially rewarding (in the literal sense of 'yay, sculpture materials'). I got a ton of wood and disassembled bike part and some old broken computer bits. And maybe tetanus!

I got jabbed with a gigantic hose-sized needle last Wednesday after college let out, partly to celebrate FINALLY BEING A SECOND YEAR HOW VERY WEARY I WAS OF BEING A FRESHER, and partly to replace my labret, which I had to take out this summer and which i miss dearly, but mostly because I really really wanted a tongue piercing. And now that the swelling has gone down (it was like trying to eat with a baseball in my mouth) it is sexy. It still hurts more than any other piercing I've ever had, god, if he'd stuck it straight through my spinal column it probably couldn't have hurt more, but I looooove it.

Now I have to test it. ;D

You know when you get a sudden craving for something and feel like if you don't get it right this second you'll absolutely explode from wanting it?

I need to watch Withnail & I right now.



Anyway. Back to Galway and to no connection tomorrow, but since I'm back in college on Wednesday I'll at least have sad drippy installed-in-like-1990 access. Though I fully intend to spend the rest of the week too drunk to find the computer lab, never mind compose a post. Now that's a resolution I can see through!



I bought new shoes today, ones more amenable to my current state of crippledness. They are those light sort of canvas tennis shoe things, you know, like Converse except they only cost me a tenner? And they're pink! My first item of pink clothing in the last ten years! I pause for applause here. See me get over my phobia! Watch as I embrace my inner girly girl! Marvel as I dazzle the world with my shiny pinkness!



And now to bed, because I got less that two hours of sleep last night. Hooray, crazy itchy painful limbs, you defeat even my usually light-catatonia-like sleep patterns.

I'm absolutely certain that my sister and I are the only people in Ireland who have just spent an hour reading aloud selected poems from her Leaving Cert course and shrieking with laughter. Ah, the hilarities of fine literature! The Convergence of the Twain is at its insipid best when read in an overwrought voice while standing poised on a chair draped in a rug. Ph33R us, for we are Nerd!

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.*

They must drink a potato based alcohol together and then fuck in loud Russian. Don't you think?

*okay, I know that's not exactly his most menacing moment. I think you can guess why I like it anyway.

I can walk again!

I still look like a first-stage leprosy sufferer but it is now possible for me to stand upright without screaming and trying to get up on the tip on my big toes so that the smallest possible area of me feet are in contact with the ground. This is a big step forward, considering I have to attend the Ghetto!College Of Forty-Eight Stairwells in two days.

I love my doctor all to bits. I finally get that 'in love with the anaesthesiologist' thing so often mentioned in relation to pregnant women.

It's spider season. By which I mean "It's enormous triangular bastards with fangs I can see from across the room that make actual scratching noises when they walk across the wall they're so freakin' heavy" season. I'm afraid of my room.

PS I know I'm spammy today, but I'm back after a three month hiatus, forgive me if I can't stay away from that sweet sweet sugar on the Update button.

And just to get as much movie squee out of the way as possible in one go (this is much easier when I can talk about them as I see them):

-I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT BATMAN OMG OMG OMG

-Spiderman 2 was Teh Awfulz. Damn it. I wanted to like it - hell, it had Alfred Molina in leather, I wanted to love it - but I just couldn't. It was so overwrought, like a Victorian Gothic novel with a 100 million budget. There are so many fanfics in those AI arms, though. Someone point me towards a nasty one, please?

- The Bourne Supremacy was soooo loooong. That car chase? Sweet jesus, I watched it for like HALF AN HOUR, then I looked down to text someone, and got a text back, and replied, and when I looked up it was STILL GOING ON.

Having said that?

NNGGUAAHHHFFFFFUCK. THANK YOU FOR PLAYING ON MY RUSSIAN HITMEN IN LEATHER FETISH. THAT WASN'T A BLATANT STAB AT EVERY RECOVERING X-PHILE IN THE AUDIENCE OR ANYTHING. Also, Marton Csokas pulling those handcuffs tight with his teeth. Mmmmmrrrr.

-Silver City. I can't tell if it's going to be good or stupid, but it has Chris Cooper running for governor and if that ain't a recipe for a great film I don't know what it'd take. Plus, Thora Birch!

You know what's really weird? When you watch Hidalgo with your mom and realise that your taste in men is identical to hers because you're both perving on Omar Sharif in his awesomeness, and maybe a little bit on Viggo when he slides off that horse all tight-jeansed. Creepy!

And then you make it ok by having a Kevin Costner fest and bonding in your shared love of a reviled actor. Waterworld 4-EVA. [Edit: And Open Range, too, if you're willing to ride the fast-forward to the gunfight.]

I think any phone conversation where the words 'thirty gay guys in school girl uniforms' appear is probably a good one. Any conversation which also includes 'getting the photos developed' is a great one. I have the best friends!
