not like i want to


it's a good thing i have Thursdays off. Last night i was so tired i fell asleep in the middle of an IM conversation (sorry about that, musesfool), and needless to say accomplished nothing all yesterday.

Must Do Today:
--Prose Comp homework, and latin homework wouldn't hurt me either (she said that if she had had to do one more mixed condition in indirect speech, heads would have been rolling.)
--Roman History reading (AHAHAHAHAH hundreds of pages behind and fuck you too, livy) but you have to appreciate the online text typos in the Res Augustae: "when Sextus Pompeius and Sextus Appuleius were consuls (14 A.C.E.), in which lustrum were cunted 4,937,000 of the heads of Roman citizens."
--start reading Aeneid for comps in April
--start Roman History research project on Cult of Hercules

Would Like To Do Today:
--work on/finish Remix
--work on scattered fics including but not limited to the FMA request, the otterfic, the conrad/yozak and a bunch of stuff a certain person likes to poke me about when i am in the throes of deadlines already.
--see the English depts. showing of Hero, as i have not seen it yet.

*cracks knuckles*

ETA: and if you've read the whole way through Death Note 58, this is freaking hilarious. All L's base are belong to Raito.

In case you missed the random post about it a few weeks ago, i am convinced that i have low-level electromagnetic mutant powers, but they are good for nothing except for making my electronics bizarre and making me shock myself on plastic.

case in point: my ibook's trackpad has started to stutter in the last few days, which is bad, and not in the sense of michael jackson, because i cannot afford to replace the battery of said computer, much less finance the fix of a trackpad. it was getting steadily and noticably worse.

but you know what fixes it? unplugging the power cord. let me repeat that, in case it was too stupid to even comprehend:

i fix my trackpad problems by unplugging the power cord.

*throws hands in air* why can't anything i own be normal? why?
