insert card this way  
You guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuys. I am SO SICK OF EXAMS. I have being doing exams for three weeks straight and I don't like it. (Surprisingly. Heh. This reminds me of a conversation where my friend said, "Oh, I hope this exam is easy!" and I was like, "Really? I'm banking on something super difficult, just because." Exams make you stupid. True story.)

Like, here is a sample MCQ for paeds@

True congenital heart disease is associated with:
- Maternal diabetes
- 10 fold likelihood that a previous sibling had/has CHD
- Failure to thrive
- Weight gain
- Periorbital oedema

THIS IS WHAT GETS ON MY TITS. About one percent of MCQs are written by someone who knows how to write MCQs. TRUE congenital heart disease - as opposed to what, FAKE congenital heart disease? YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN. My MCQ paper yesterday included one that said "Thrombolysis is feasible up to 6 hours after an MI." Thrombolysis is feasible up to 12 hours post-MI, so this question could be true (anywhere up to 12 hours, including 6) or false (12 hours not 6, bitch). HATE. HATE HATE HATE.

On the other hand, doing absolutely no study for MCQs gets you the same result as doing lots, unlike essay papers, which require work, and why I am not in favour of essay papers.

I'm sorry this entry is so boring! Let's talk about ... Ryan's new girlfriend. Or 'female friend with whom he takes pictures draped over on beds involving stockings and suspenders.' I don't do that sort of thing with my 'friends', but LA operates under a different code of morals, I am sure. Her name is Kate and she is blonde. DON'T HAVE A TYPE OR ANYTHING, ROSS. I also think it's cute the way Brendon's girlfriend looks an awful lot like him. I am a bit sorry for Keltie. I get the feeling she was looking for a rather more permanent establishment, heading in the direction of the house and 2.5 kids. (Who is this point five of a kid and when can I meet it?) Whereas Ryan is very twenty-two years old, in the 'I'M A ROCKSTAR AND I'M GOING TO FUCK EVERYTHING! HAHAHA!' mode.

Also, Spencer said in some random interview that 'It's Saturday night and we're doing [insert random chart show here]. What are you doing in?' STUDYING, SPENCER MY LAD. It annoyed me irrationally and I've started thinking that you can't be friends with a Ryan Ross without being a bit of an asshole yourself. Don't get me wrong, I lurve Rossy and would welcome him in my pants in any situation that wasn't creepy (hint: there isn't one), but. He's an ass. Then again, music stations will insist on doing video interviews between Panic and people who introduce their pet gerbils as people. If I were Panic, I'd make my next album thrash metal just to throw the crazies off my tail. Our tail?

I think I've talked enough about people I don't even know for one night. What thinkest thou?

Exams suck and I am glad that you understand wtf you are studying or somewhat understand cause the rest is just Greek to me. So glad I didn't go to med school.

On Kate: I think that the fans are fucking retarded about how they treat her on twitter. Recently Sarah (Brendon's GF) just locked hers and you have to ask for a request if you wanna read it which makes me epically sad cause I'm a voyeur by heart and I love watching people interact with one another. I don't know if this puts me in teh creepy market or not, but I suppose it's all inevitable when you're a fan of something like this.

But back to my original argument/whatever, people are being mean to this chick that claims not to be dating Ryan (Fair enough) and then telling her she's a slut and everything. Comparatively (and I hate doing this, really I do, but I can't help myself) she handles this bullshit so well I just kind of tweeted to her once that she was awesome and amazing and I fist pumped for her and she replied with the nicest comment back. Keltie had a tendency to just WHINE about it instead of letting it roll of her shoulder (even if it didn't) and complain about it on her blog.

I don't know if I'm going into nonsensical or not but I just am in AWE at how fandom thinks that they reserve the right to stand up for Keltie Colleen and tell Kate that she's a piece of shit and that she ruined Keltie's life like...they know the details of what happened in that relationship. And then if you ever search at Ryan's twitter? Holy cow man. No wonder the boy remains awkward.

Okay I'm done babbling for now.

I find all of this a fascinating social phenomena. The idea of celebrity is fairly new - being famous for who you know or what reality TV show you were on instead of for a talent, I mean. I question how much any of the people who get involved with, say, bandom bands know how invested fans are in their lives. Their following is so right-now and in-your-face compared to, say, someone like Angelina Jolie, who probably lives on a totally different plane and only interacts with real people when they come to clean her seventeen pools. On the one hand, I think more people need to realis what it means to be famous in this day and age - that people will either rip you apart on the internet, write porn about you, or both - but on the other, you can exactly blame them for NOT knowing, either.

Heh, if Keltie's life is ruined by any man, Ryan or otherwise, it'd be pretty lame. I fail to see what any future GF would have to do with it either, as opposed to it being, idk, RYAN'S FAULT.

I think that the thing is, is that unless you're really apart of that sector of being a fangirl - My sister for example, isn't really into that area, but she knows it exists because of me, you know? - or, alternatively, unless you know someone who is into that, you don't know how bad it can get. I think that Panic fans are particularly ridiculous, but then again I'm of an age that you just...didn't have all this easy access to these bands. There wasn't a youtube when I as 14, there wasn't a twitter, they didn't really blog, the only thing you really got were band dates and shit on TV that you had to watch through the television (before Tivo) and tape and then get it from friends overseas if you wanted OTHER interviews.

When I got into Panic it was SO EASY to get to see a whole shitload of their dynamics BECAUSE of youtube, BECAUSE they used to have livejournals, because they were just like you and I (minus the fanfic and fucking each other, but eh, details) and that was so mind-boggling to me.

Something else that I think is hilarious is that people really believe these dudes are like, fucka famous. And...they're not. Like, you mention Angelina Jolie, who I can assure you doesn't know who the fuck Ryan Ross is. Like if my father sat on a plan with Brendon Urie he would just think he's this annoying kid with a bobbing leg and obnoxious giggle, not Angelina, who probably has a private jet but he'd be able to recongize. People say this is cause she's a movie star, I aruge that if they're popular enough (Say the American Idol kids) You know who they are. They're just not that famous and yet their GFs get slaughtered.

It's a really fascinating thing to me too. And I don't think that the fans need to speak for Keltie Colleen - just becuase she puts her heart out onto the internet and the boys have twitters doesn't mean that that we actually know them even just a little. It's all fucking stupid, really.

And I am under the philosophy that cheating blows, and I know how that must feel, but it takes two people to make and break any relationship, and eventhough she said he was a cheater, something else went on. So. That's my .02

I agree with Ryro = asshole. Actually, I kind of feel like panic as a whole are assholes. I love them, but.

Oh, they sure are. I'd love to have that much freedom with the less publicly-acceptable side of my personality!

Heh. :D

I feel bad for Keltie if Ryan did cheat (and yeah, he probably did), but her whining has really not endeared me to her at all.

And yeah, I think they probably are all assholes, but I kind of really don't care. ;)

I don't actually follow Keltie's blog - or indeed any of the boy's twitters, even though I set up my own for that very purpose! Am such a lazy fan, lol. I know in a breakup situation I'd probably want to vent ad infinitum, so it must be hard to have such a public blog. (The solution would be a private blog, but I guess she'd get less sympathy then? IDEK!)

But it's more that - I'm an asshole, everyone is to some extent, it's that they can so often let that side be uppermost that fascinates me.

Yeah, I dunno. I'm a private person and just can't imagine wanting to put anything like that out there, especially knowing who reads her blog. But that's me. ;)

I get that. :D

Lame. I'm lame. And apparently addicted to making bad manips of the boys from your fairy story.

He looks so sweet and posed, like he's waiting for a nice boy to take him on a date! I reckon this is just before Eric takes him beetle-ridin' and messes him up a little...

Maybe the .5ers are unappealing kids who count a little less. Like there are two perfect children and then one vaguely off-putting one who looks nothing like the other family members and does creepy taxidermy experiments in his room.

Poor unpleasant little .5ers.

OH GOD now I want to write a story called .5ers all about the not-quite-right kids and have them either save or blow up the world - I'M NOT SURE YET. :DDD
Margravine Palavar: Amber Margravinemargravine on May 22nd, 2009 05:59 pm (UTC)
Yes! Write that. Maybe they save the world from some more normal menace and THEN blow it up. Just to make it clear that it's on their terms.

Ugh that sort of thing bothers me SO MUCH in exams. It's like, BE CLEAR PLEASE, MY GRADE IS AT STAKE.

Also, while I know nothing about this Ryan/Katie/Keltie situation, I will throw my hat into the ring and say I would fuck Ryan Ross. If he wore eyeliner. Or, hell, even if he didn't.

Also last week I tipped a pole dancer by giving her money WITH MY TEETH. TO HER TEETH. Whatevs, it's totally amazing, you should definitely do that sometime.

Oh man, the one today was even WORSE. I won't even say another word because I'll just start crying inconsolably and I need to drive home in a minute.

He doesn't any more, but he DOES paint his face like Donatello from the Ninja Turtles?

idk man, should I approve of pole dancing? In terms of objectifying women? Do they have male pole dancers (unf unf)?
