pay no attention to the doctor behind the curtain  
Yesterday I fell asleep at seven pm and didn't wake up till ten am. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. Also, I fell gross. Also, I had a dream that Ryan Ross refused to donate a kidney to Kate Moss and everyone was disgusted with his pride and I wrote a fic about it. Called 'Kate Moss' Kidney.' I'm starting to wonder why no one ever wrote something like this already.

Other things happened yesterday, like: ophthalmology exam! Which didn't take place till about three o'clock, so our group spent the day fooling around and making videos of each other challenging our sister group on their accusations of our uncoolness. These involved sword-fights with fundoscopes, synchronised dancing to 'All the Single Ladies' and rants about muffins. Needless to say, we pretty much bombed the exam. But no one in the history of ever actually LIKES ophthalmology, so it was no loss.

When I got home I was inspired to make a video too! (I was exhausted and pretty wired, I have to admit; see thirteen hours sleep anecdote.) I don't know, now, how anyone in the world can have a conversation with me; I talk too fast, I never enunciate, and my eyes look like an electrocuted rabbit's. Don't get me started on the laugh o'doom. It took me three goes to figure out that I was saying 'really weird', because it came out 'rullyed.'

I HATE ALL OPTHALMOLOGY. Stupid eyes with their stupid ten million tiny muscles with stupid names, and stupid practical exam with people shining painful lights into my eye and then not being able to drive home afterwards because the dilating eye drops haven't worn off. >:(

LOLOL 'I hate all ophthalmologies' has been my facebook status for a week.

I couldn't get over the way they were so trigger-happy with the dilating drops! I got those once and I walked home with my eyes closed - the sun BURNED ME, PRECIOUS. One doctor was like, Have these drops, you cannot drive after, and the woman was all no, actually, I have to pick up my kids and there's no one else to pick me up. Cue big hullaballoo.

But no more ever I hope, unless by some forsaken act of god I end up working in emerg. >.>

Ah, dude, you talk as fast as me! *high-fives* Nobody ever understands a word I say, because I rabbit on at a ridiculously fast pace. I AM GLAD I AM NOT ALONE. (Not that I am calling you ridiculous! Just, fast speakers unite. \o/)

Also oh man, that is one of my favourite spots of Ryan/Brendon ever too. (I think I may not ever have commented on it, because I went through a period where I really sucked at commenting? D: I'm sorry, man, I really loved that whole fic a lot, especially as I cackled my way through most of it. And then the next day I went and bought myself a 7-Up, though sadly not a Ryan Ross to have sexytimes with me in the car afterward. /o\)

No fear! I am ridiculous. I never realisd how much until I watched myself talking out of the side of my mouth, what. Am I secretly John Wayne? (True fact: I have never seen a John Wayne film! I just always heard he talked out of the side of his mouth. And wore hats. I do that too.)

Also? The gold cardi/yellow top combo worked much better irl than it does here. I SWEAR.

I go through silent periods myself. Sometimes it's just too MUCH. Like, my plan for the summer is to go through all the bandom fics I liked in the past year (ohgod) and put them on my recs list, but atm it's all I can do to keep up with, like, the one I read per week. Lame.

There are not enough rants about muffins out there, so I approve of your efforts *approves*

Also, cleaning one's rooms is overrated *eyes her own room with an air of defeat* well... I know where things are. Most of the time *coughs*

I could understand you? Maybe because I also speak fast and hate it when people take forever to say something. Patience is not one of my better qualities.

And I think I read that fic a couple days ago. But didn't comment because I feel awkward commenting on fics long after the author has posted it. Um. I (belatedly) liked the fic? :)

You must understand this was an ANTI-MUFFIN rant. One of the other group brings in muffins for them, so we were were all like, MUFFINS ARE FATTENING! WE'RE GONNA HAVE CARROT STICKS! AND LOW FAT DIP!

Mine is so clean right now. I can see the floor and everything. *inspires*

It was maybe more the slurring that bothered me. It sounds so much better in my head.

But didn't comment because I feel awkward commenting on fics long after the author has posted it

Oh, you should totally get over that! Not just for my sake - every author loves getting comments on old fics. Unless they're really old or they're not in that fandom any more.

heeehee. that was cute! you don't talk *that* fast but I do live an hour out of NY so we're all about the choppity-chop. ;) I miss reading your writing, but have no clue about the bandom so I don't know if I could follow. :/

DUDE. :D How I started with bandom was by treating it as original fic. I was really bored with every fandom at that time and it wasn't like you needed to know a whole lot about the canon (they play in bands. Except when it's AU, in which case, you don't even need to know that). On the other hand, it did totally suck me in by that method, so maybe you don't want to try it... One day I googled some pics to see just who these boys were, the next I'm here with seventy bandom icons and a whole new interest in life.

Oh that wasn't too fast at all! But then again, I am constantly being told by people that I speak way too quickly so possibly my standards are different from the world's. And now I feel that I really ought to go clean my own room now. >_>

I feel much nicer now my room is clean, but that's only because I live in it ALL THE TIME. I can't wait till I have a whole house of my own to mess up.

Great to be intelligible, at least! :P

Yay! And double yay!

Sadly the quality was a bit crappy. I'm blaming the fact that it was a phone. A phone in my hand. I like waving it about, apparently. :D

I understood you! But then, we talk very quickly in NY (although without the adorable accents).

I loooooooooooove that scene. ♥

I think the NY accent is awesome. Mine is so ... girly, or something, ugh.

I was so thinking about the car scene after this. Brendon would totally come before Ryan even undid his fly, and Ryan would blink discouragingly but secretly think it was cute, and they'd spend the rest of the night arguing over radio stations.
sleepingfingers on March 21st, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
You're so absolutely adorable, and your accent! Gosh, I love your accent. *tries to steal*

You do speak very fast, but then, I am one of those people who can never string two words together without stuttering. :>

OH GOD, WHY? It makes me seasick to even think about how much it goes up and down in timbre. D:

I wish I had a bit more a brain-mouth filter, personally. Maybe then I would actually STOP talking occasionally. And not end up saying things to people like 'You should burn your shoes.'

I am retelling every single conversation we have ever had right now, erasing my British accent and replacing it with your Irish one.

It's not a stellar example of an Irish accent, I gotta tell you, because it's kind of Australianly diluted. :D

Also, HI! How are the kiwis? And the sun?! Have you met any sheep yet, c'mon, tell me. :DDD
oops: ryan rossoddishly on March 21st, 2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
:) It's a looooong way from mine, though, and that's the important thing :)

HI! The sun is lurvely. Except I am miserably sunburnt on my back, which means long sleeved tops and therefore white top half and tanned and glorious (er :P) legs. Oh well.

Kiwifruit starts on Wednesday! There is NOTHING to do here, NOTHING AT ALL, but FINALLY I have Internet for an hour, so. :)

And I have yet to see any sheep!

AND I'm writing fic. :D

Unless yours is even more insanely nasal than mine, I refuse to believe that's a good thing.

Oh noes! At least you do tan in places. I have type 1 skin - no tanning ever. Please do put suncream on ALWAYS though. It's good stuff. :D

Nothing to do? I guess you can't sunbathe when you're burnt. And jobs mean money and money means buying stuff! Buying stuff is always a good time!

YAY FIC! \O/ Of what kind?

I'm good. My mommy is coming back on Thursday (!) and I have 1500 words of Firefly AU fic. I will send you some Harlequin AU when I write the two scenes I've been thinking about since I talked about sending it to you. ♥
