penny dreadful




is a lovely term i heard for the first time yesterday in one of my classes. it is the term used in england for dime novels. for some reason it really appeals to me...it's such an anachronistic euphemism.

last night's episode of veronica mars rocked! i won't bore non-vm fans with the details, but suffice to say that it totally delivered. there's a veronica mars fansite with a messageboard and i'm totally thinking of joining...which means i'm teetering on the brink of total nard-facedness. i can't help it! *edit* OKAY FINE. I JOINED THE STUPID MESSAGEBOARD FOR FANGIRLS. eek!!!!! this means i've totally gone OVER THE LINE that separated me from semi-normal people and obsessive fans. i HAD to! they kept talking about stupid stuff! and being all moral majority!!! anyway, something about the relationship between ronnie and her love interest makes me get all squirmy pubescent brace-face teenage girl squad...to the point where i scream into pillows with excitement. and i do a dance when the theme song starts to roll. it's definitely for the best that i watch the show in the privacy of my own home.

the plan for today is to do some serious research on a paper i have due next week. in between and amongst working two separate shifts and two separate libraries. which means that school (in the sense of actually attending class) is on the backburner at the mo'

tonight for dinner we're having a caramelized onion, mushroom and white cheddar tart. i've been accused of having an unseemly love of piecrust by the roomie. well...if that's the worst that can be said about me...i guess i'm doing okay.

fin.
