Today was insanely busy and stressful. Oh well- it’s over now. One thing, though: Windows Vista is the devil. Seriously. Maybe I’m just spoiled by the awesomeness of my Mac and of Macs in general, but I did have a PC all of my life up until a couple of years ago, and I don’t ever remember a Windows operating system being such a fucking pain. The computers in the Writing Center run it and it constantly crashes and I actually ended up literally banging my head on the desk today because a simple process ended up taking forever. Vista = DOOM! ARGH!
Guess what? I finished the zine! Whoa! I will hopefully have some time to lay it out tomorrow night. Exciting!
& I can’t tell you how much I love this new Shatner video. It’s titled, “William Shatner Responds to Star Trek Director JJ Abrams” and addresses the decision to leave Shatner out of the new movie:
OMG, I love that man. Seriously. Somehow, he can always make me simultaneously cry and laugh. I love his silly manic energy and his kindness.
Aw, Bill, is it time marry me yet? :)
& If darling Nimoy wasn’t a part of that movie, I’d definitely boycott it. I’m already kind of scared to see it, because I have the feeling that one of my favorite shows ever will be fucked up and messed with to such a degree that I’ll never again be able to enjoy it in the same wonderful way that I do now, if that makes sense. I’m just protective of it.
Tomorrow is a day-long departmental retreat at a summer camp about a half-hour from campus. We’ll see how that goes.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Belle & Sebastian. They’re autumn music for me in the best possible way. At this very moment, I’m madly in love with “There’s Too Much Love.”
More updates on the zine soon!
