Well, I'm back in Kingston. Pleasantly surprised to find that the apartment is a) still standing, and b) relatively clean. Right now I'm just taking a minute to be slightly overwhelmed by the amount of work I've neglected over reading week: not merely readings, but also a lab report (I think I need to scrap what I have so far and start over again, because things are looking wonky, arrgh), a German assignment, and the part where I have until Friday to make a decision about going on exchange.

Thankfully, with the power of To-Do lists, I have Plans, which will hopefully allow me to take the stick out of my ass so I can pretend to be Normal. Also, coffee. There is nothing that cannot be conquered by the addition of More Caffeine. 

The weekend was totally worth the imminent stress, though. On Saturday, I slept in (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was glorious~), baked banana bread and hung out with Eden before having dinner with the grandparents. Later, Chloe came over and we skyped [livejournal.com profile] cherishedsaulie  and watched the vlogbrothers until two in the morning. I HAVE BEEN CONVERTED. Extremely belated though I am, ;alskdjf;asd I have oodles of love for them now. Today, we had the relatives over for Oma's birthday lunch. I do not think my waistline was helped by the entire table of chicken rice/chow mein/salmon OMG I devoured, but I'm reminding myself that university fare starts again on Monday, so it's completely justified.

OH AND BY THE WAY, WHITE COLLAR EP 2.14 IS THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER OH MY GOD IT IS LIKE FIC ON TELEVISION.

One last tidbit and I'm done: THE EAGLE - NOW IN LATIN
Oh my god, White Collar. I loved everything about that episode. So much. All the love~ ♥ It may be midterm time, but at least the tv is awesome.

ETA: also, I will just say that the final scene with June talking about Byron broke my heart in so many ways - but they were all the best ways possible. Just her face - and when she - the way she just - and I just - I'm a wibbly pile of teary-eyed goo right now, thanks to that scene.
I have a theory:

Someday, [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge  will break the internet with his awesome.
PETER BURKE IS ON A HORSE. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.

(WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I'M STILL FUCKING HYSTERICAL AFTER THAT EP OMG. EUPHORIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA~)

WHEN DOES TUESDAY GET HERE AGAIN OMG
Spoilers for White Collar S2E09 )
I think I have a bit of a thing for people distressed and in pain. First, that absolutely delectable confession scene in Rocknrolla with Tom Hardy's beautiful pained whimpers (seriously, I want it as my ringtone), now Neal's gorgeous screaming in S2E06 of White Collar... There's this lovely, lovely part where Matt Bomer's voice goes all high-pitched and breaks - just guh.
SERIOUS CAPSLOCKY SPOILERS FOR WHITE COLLAR SEASON FINALE 1X14 "OUT OF THE BOX"  )

**BREAK**

The thing about watching TV online, for me, is that I always end up getting distracted while doing so, or I end up pausing it sporadically to savour certain moments (read: every three seconds). So, instead of taking an hour to watch an episode, I somehow end up spreading the viewing out over the course, of, say four. I am terribly inefficient about this whole tv-watching business, but anyway. Today I took an hour break, and in that time, I:
- ate a cookie
- officially rented an apartment WTF I feel so grown-up
- started laundry
- saw a tree fall over, out of NOWHERE. I was walking to the Housing Office to drop off the signed lease, when I heard this odd noise. It sounded like dry leaves skittering across a sidewalk, only much louder. I looked up just in time to see a huge tree bend in slow motion, its silver-brown bark cracking, and crash to the ground, not two feet from some unsuspecting dude. I was all O.O. It was - for lack of a better word - intense.

**Back to your regularly scheduled entertainment**

Today is hedonism day!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE WHITE COLLAR. so effing much. There can be no evil in the world while this show airs. ♥ ♥ ♥

"No."
"That's your favourite word, isn't it?"

HOW AWESOME.

(Guess what else is awesome? a) My boots no longer have holes in them. b) Virtue and Moir OHMYGOD. c) What's that? 7-3? It's not completely making up for Sunday, but it's getting there.)

cut for mundane things )

OHMYGOD OHMYGOD OK WHITE COLLAR DOES BAD THINGS TO ME

I WANT EL/NEAL -->HARLEQUIN ROMANCE ON CRACK:

She stared at him, her serene, cornflower blue, jewel-like orbs glittering like a thousand spangled stars. Her perfect bow lips formed the words, the words he had longed to hear with every fiber of his being. "Take me, Neal! Take me... shopping!"

ALSO MATT BOMER IS PURPORTEDLY BFFLES WITH ZACHARY QUINTO AND HOMG HOW PERFECT IS THAT?!
I have to say, the only, only thing about being in a new fandom right from the get-go is that THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH FIC (BAWWWWWWW). Although White Collar's been going since October, it's only on its tenth ep (BUT HOMG EP 11 COMES OUT TONIGHT!), and there are comms out there ([livejournal.com profile] whitecollarfic , [livejournal.com profile] caffrey_burke , [livejournal.com profile] 3_way_collar ), but I am an insatiable porn fic addict and I WANT MOAR. (OM NOM NOM)

OH BUT ALSO GUYS DUDE GUYS, [livejournal.com profile] astolat wrote White Collar fic: Taking Liberties, Neal/Peter/Elizabeth, adult. IT IS AMAZING AND HOT AND GLORIOUS. You should totes read it even if, like me, threesomes aren't always your kink. White Collar is JUST THAT GOOD OK, it makes you ship threesomes against your will. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I have done NOTHING today except sleep, dance and watch White Collar. It has been FANTASTIC.

AND OKAY SO RANDOM TIDBIT TIME. White Collar --> Good Omens. By which I mean Neal from White Collar has Crowley's eyes (except blue) and Crowley's hair (except brown) AND AS;DLFKJER;AGSDA FUCK I REALLY WANT TO MAKE THAT MOVIE. I was always really skeptical about any GO movie because who would play Crowley but ;AKLSDF;ASD THIS MAN WHAT.

(And we'd maybe have to do something about the eyebrows, but jesus fuck, okay?)

PS: And while I'm prattling about it, White Collar has some fucking awesome writing going for it. I'm still eagerly awaiting an episode wherein Peter gets into a fist fight (because that would rock, and you know he'd fight like Sir Samuel Motherfucking Vimes), but a;lsehalw;ekrasdk THIS SHOW. IDEK. ♥

OH YEAH: if you want a description of the show by someone who is coherent and uses semi-colons with reasonable integrity, GO HERE because [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge  just recced the everloving shit out of this show, and he does it with absolutely zero keyboeard smashes, which is something I totally admire.
