H'okay, I should really not be posting now, seeing as I am nominally in the middle of my Greek prose composition that I really, really need to finish by tomorrow if I intend to meet all my deadlines but I'm also on a massive sugar high and thus my judgment is critically impaired (as in to the point where jokes like 'swine flu - hey does that mean the pigs flew?' become hysterically funny). So yes, microwave brownie-in-a-mug with syrup + endorphins from the evening run = THE BEST THING EVER (and yes, I do realise that running + syrup brownies of death is possibly defeating the object, hence why the twice-weekly run is now becoming a thrice-weekly run starting tomorrow morning).

Went to the cinema and saw 'The State of Play' last night.Helen Mirren has the most AMAZING 'what is this fuckery' expression I have EVER had the pleasure of seeing; I want it iconed so very, very badly. The rest of the film was alright, bar some epic plothole fail (though nothing that I really noticed until thinking about it afterwards). It's not a brilliant film but it's decent enough. The most important thing I took away from it - film trailers, namely 'Public Enemies': JOHNNY DEPP AND CHRISTIAN BALE FACE-OFF, THERE IS NO PART OF THAT THAT IS NOT AWESOME. OR HOT. I am going to see that film if it's the last thing I do. And Star Trek. And the new Terminator film that's coming out, because again, Christian Bale. Not that I'm shallow or anything...

Also I should probably let you guys know that I'm basically going to be on a semi-hiatus for the next 6 weeks, because this term has a killer workload and for the moment it's taking literally all my time just to keep up with deadlines and strive vainly for the semblance of a life (and, for the most part, fail). Thus fandom participation will be sporadic for a while, and also I FAIL AT ANSWERING COMMENTS, SORRY! I DO LOVE AND ADORE YOU ALL THOUGH.

That said I have still managed to knock up the tentative beginnings of a prologue for the epic mythology fic, in which Zeus et al have to relocate from Olympus to Ben Nevis (oh, I amuse myself). And there's 1,500 words of semi-porny Merlin/Morgana knocking round on my hard drive somewhere that I'd hoped to have finished by now before uni ate my life. And M/A hooker AU fic. And all those other fics. Damn. I need to start finishing things. But I have no tiiiiiime. *whines like a whiny thing*

Yeah, this is likely the closest you will ever see me to drunk-or-otherwise-under-the-influence!posting; you have no idea how many typos I had to correct. I will so regret this later. Sugar, how I love thee.
phantomjam: (BSG - Starbuck has attitude)
- My early morning Catullus lecture was officially made of burning win. It basically turned out to be all about fellatio and gay sex in Catullus with an added helping of possible sparrow euphemisms ('passer', Latin for 'sparrow' is theorised to have also been a slang term for penis). Someone actually wrote an academic article entitled 'In Defence of Catullus' Dirty Sparrow'. This knowledge completes me.

- Classics is clearly the porn degree.

- Keeping up the twice-weekly running routine. I feel healthy; disturbing yet awesome.

- Booking flights for summer travel with [personal profile] xaritomene. My summer, it will be awesome ♥

- Got hit by a random Merlin fic idea; Greek mythology involved )

Aaaand that concludes the happiness meme! From here on out it's all whining and depression all the time ;p

Brief PSA: I'm appallingly behind on comments and f-listy things at the moment, so if I haven't replied to you I'm not ignoring you or anything, I'm just a bit swamped right now. I think I'll probably have a chance to catch up tomorrow though (yay, fandom stuff!).
