Bah. Went to sell back my Bio book and French book and discovered that I can't, since I left all the little bits and pieces that came with them at home. Which means that I have to schlepp up here again tomorrow.
Not having a car is such a fucking pain in the ass sometimes. Usually I don't really care, but the hour and forty five minutes I spend on the bus each way is an hour and forty five minutes that I don't have in my life anymore. And I just don't feel like sitting on a bus for that long, sometimes. However, I foresee myself doing it alot over break because the gym is open, and I've become addicted to the stationary bikes, even though they make my muscles cramp up horribly.
Almost bought ROTK EE yesterday, when Oliver and I went to go see National Treasure. $30 at Borders- not bad. I think I need to get back into that fandom, because CSI is making me miserable.
(Just spent an hour going through the backlogs of the Butterflied discussion board on YTDAW. Ye gods. G/S ship-fan-angst overload. And in the end, I couldn't find the post I was looking for- the spoiler for what was supposed
to happen in Butterflied as opposed to what actually did.
It's not CSI per say. The whole Grissom/Sara thing is driving me up the wall, and it doesn't really look like there's any resolution for it in sight. Sofia is a huge stumbling block- she pisses me off and I forgive her for not knowing any better by turns. But the way they have her throwing herself at Grissom really pisses me off. On top of everything else, oozing all over the lab isn't professional.
Oh, yeah. Might as well get this off my chest right now.
PUT YOUR GODDAMN HAIR IN A PONYTAIL. The way Catherine and Sara have their hair styled has always been a bone of contention with me; possibly because I find any hair in my face when I'm doing something distracting. So I can't really fathom a job- especially one as sensitve as a crime scene investigator- where women leave their hair hanging in their faces all the time. If I was their supervisor, I'd have a damn dress code thing in effect, that says if you have long hair you must have it up and secured at all times. I mean, think about it. If a piece of your hair falls on a dead body, that fucks up the evidence. Big no-no. And Sofia is the worst of all of them. Her hair is really pretty when it flows behind her as she chases down a gun, but it's too long to be worn down. Plus, wasn't she all like "My hair's always up" when she first showed up?
Anyway. One of my biggest problems- and this goes for books and movies, too- is that when I get into something, I get into it with everything I've got. If the end of a book depresses me, I'll be depressed for weeks. If two of my favorite characters are being dragged through the mud, I feel like I'm getting dragged through the mud. It's probably some psychological disorder or something that I've got, but since there's nothing to be done I've got to live with it. And all the CSI-angst crap is pissing me off.
/rant, for real this time.
I've still got a bunch of English essays to take care of. We have until the 20th to hand them in, and the procrastination bunny is gnawing at my leg. It would help, though, if I had a fucking computer at home, instead of having to come all the way down here. But I DON'T, because my dad fucked it UP.

~ iPod mini (okay, maybe that's a want)
~ new shoes
~ new hoody (black)
~ tank tops (black)
