A Witzelsucht Post

Standard

It’s true that hippopotomanstroesequipedalian speech can make you sound inaniloquent at best and mumpsimus or philosophuncilist at worst. Still, I had to share this definition: Zielschmerz n. the exhilarating dread of finally pursuing a lifelong dream, which requires you to put your true abilities out there to be tested on the open savannah, no longer protected inside the terrarium of hopes and delusions that you created in kindergarten and kept sealed as long as you could, only to break in case of emergency. This is how I feel.

Things I like

Standard

Let’s ease back into this, shall we?

1. The fact that I’ll finally have a real computer again in about a week.

2. Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

I love this musical! It’s been a little while since I’ve watched, but after getting the behind the scenes book at the library, I’m feeling a need to rewatch it.

3.  Speaking of Dr. Horrible, have you ever imagined what a Dr. Horrible/ Doctor Who crossover would look like? Well, apparently somebody did. Presenting Dr. Whorrible:

Personally, the first thing that comes to mind is the Wizard of Oz…

4. Have you ever wondered how similar the lyrics of Weird Alare to the works of Shakespeare? Well, now there’s a way to find out!

http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2011/08/how-shakespearean-are-you/

I compared some my work, and I had a poem that was 97% Shakespearean.

5. Tumblr. Seriously, though, it’s amazing! It’s taken my Doctor Who fangirling to a whole new level.  If you ever get the urge to check it out, you can find my Tumblr at ifimjuliet.tumblr.com

Some Thoughts, Updates, and Bits of Random

Standard

I’ve been reading like crazy, converting friends to nerdism, and finally have a decent novel idea. Also, I’ve discovered I’m a snob about musicals.

Soooooo, I was thinking about doing BEDA 2 to make up for my inconsistent blogging as of late. I’ll let you know what I decide soon. I’m just worried about computer access as I have some epic adventures planned. Hmmmm….

It’s funny that you can say what you mean without meaning what you say. It’s like knowing someone (i.e who they are) without truly knowing anything about them.

This post has no real point. But I’m going to keep going. Feel free to stop reading.

Have you ever come across something and though, “Hey! I came up with that idea a long time ago!” ?  It’s extraordinarily frustrating. Or, on the flip side, have you ever come across an idea that you really wish you had thought of but didn’t?

Do you have a time travel theory? I mean, do you believe in the butterfly effect or that time is in flux or…. what? Doctor Who holds that time is in flux, which makes sense, but is a little strange. For every change in the past, the future simply reshapes itself to accommodate it.

And now I’m off to listen to trock and research study hacks.  Someday, I will be less random.

Maybe…
