30 day meme day 19:The style of clothing you feel most comfortable in: )

Also, my BFF Abby has started a new blog, called [livejournal.com profile] bizarrevictoria, which, in her own words, is about the following: "Fairly or unfairly, the [Victorian] aristocracy have always had a reputation for eccentricity, and this blog is dedicated to capturing and sharing some of their finest real-life and fictional moments of bizarreness." Abby has a real way with words, and she's not joking about the eccentricity.

Go check it out! Even if you know nothing about the Victorian period (like me) you won't be disappointed. The posts are all absolutely hilarious, and how can you resist a blog that's, "a place [to] recount the abject loopiness of something and ask, "WHYYY?" without worrying about finding an answer"?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBY!!!

You won't see this until tomorrow, since you're in Scotland and it's already 12:40 there, but it's still your birthday here.

Woo!
So, my mother has Netflix. And on Netflix, there are some movies you can watch on your computer, for free, if you have a subscription, which we do. And Mom gave me her password long ago. This led to me, just now, browsing the movies I can watch in the near future. (First on the list is Interview with the Vampire, since Andrew's never seen it, but that's another story.)

Anyway, I just found this: Twist. Director Jacob Tierney takes inspiration from the Charles Dickens classic Oliver Twist in this modern-day drama about gay street life in Toronto. The innocent Oliver (Joshua Close) is drawn to the hustling Dodge (Nick Stahl), a savvy kid with whom he hooks up after running away from yet another foster home. Oliver joins Dodge and his pals, who sell their bodies to eager customers -- all under the watchful eyes of their pimp, Fagin (Gary Farmer).

So, dear f-list, (and especially Abby and Ellen) should I watch this at some point? I kind of want to, but I watched the trailer and now I'm also kind of scared.


Also, can you imagine the pitch for this? "Guys, guys, settle down, I have the best idea for a movie EVAR. It's based on Oliver Twist... Oh now, don't groan, listen, he's going to be gay, and in modern day Toronto, and Fagin is going to be his pimp. Yes, he's going to be a gay male prostitute, and Dodge, (that's my version of the Artful Dodger) is going to be a heroin addict and possibly his lover. Nancy? Oh, I don't know if I can fit her in. What do you think?"

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBY DENNY PRONGS!!!

Today is National Punctuation Day. This was Abby's response: "It's like a holiday for me, exclaimation point."


And we've been narrating our punctuation ever since.

While walking to class yesterday...

Me: I used to take tennis lessons as a kid. I kind of miss tennis.
Andrew: Oh, you should play raquetball.
Abby: No. Raquetball is the devil!
Me: I don't want to play raquetball, I want to play tennis.
Abby: Seriously, raquetball is Satan's tennis.



I think I may have to make an icon that says that now.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBYPRONGSDENNYKAREN!!!


Now we can both be 21 and sober. :)

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISTEN!!!


I just came from her party, and it was so much fun. I suck at Rock Star, but I got to talk to Anna and Kelli for a long time, and that was really nice. I miss those girls. I also don't know what i'm going to do with Sarah in South Korea for a year. And I really hope to see Kristen again before she goes to camp, cause I heart her, and we do not hang out enough.

But it was kind of hilarious to me that the Peacock's dog's name is Abby. Cause I kept saying, "Abby, no! Abby, down! Abby, go away!" and no one thought it was funny but me. Abby also kept licking my elbows. And I wouldn't put doing that past the human one. :)



Finally, I'm going to be gone all weekend, and then Sunday is Father's Day anyways, so I won't be around/available until Monday. See you then!
I was just watching Friends, and I freaked out because crazy Gary Oldman was on it. And it wasn't even a big part. 

I really have no point here, except to say: YAY FOR CRAZY GARY OLDMAN!

To Do List for This Summer:

1. See Kelli, Erin, Janeea, Jess, Sarah, Renee, Heather, Emalee, and anyone else that I'm forgetting right now but who I want to see and said I would hang out with.
2. Get a job.
3. Re-read Deathly Hallows. And maybe Half Blood Prince too, just for good measure.
4. Work on, and preferably finish, epic fic of epic-ness.
5. Visit Ellen in Maine.
6. Visit Abby, if her work schedule allows.
7. See new Indiana Jones movie. Even if I have to come back to Burlington to do it.


To Do List for the Next Three Days:

1. Take Genetics final.
2. Finish Philosophy paper and hand in by 1:00 tomorrow.
3. Give Emily all her stuff back.
4. See college friends one more time.
5. Pack, clean, and go home.
6 Clean my car. PRIORITY.
7 Unpack and clean room.


In a related story, I'm pretty sure all my junk is not going to fit into my car. It's going to be interesting.

Ok. Are you ready for this? I've been meaning to post the following random thoughts for a couple days, and now that I have a little free time, I'm going to. Be warned, these things have nothing to do with each other. Absolutely nothing.

1. I AM DONE WITH ORGO FOREVER. NOT JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE, FOREVER. I was the first one done with the test, mainly because round about question 45 (there were 70 total) I stopped even trying and just started guessing. For the very last question I had so little clue what the answer was that I read it, closed my eyes, pointed at an answer, and put that one down. 

Seriously, I did not care about that test. It was on the entire year, it was a standardized test, there was no real way to study for it, it's going to be scaled, and my grade is so good that it really doesn't matter. He asked me as I handed it in if it was too easy. I said no, but I left out the part where I was done so early because I just didn't care.



5.
Last, but not least, an Abby quote from last night.

Me: I want to be famous. But I don't want to be famous for being pretty, or stupid. I want to be famous for being really smart.
Abby: I want to be famous for being smart AND pretty.
Me: Well, I mean, I don't want to be famous for being ugly. And there are people who are.
Abby: *looks dubious*
Me: Like the Hunchback of Notre Dame! And the Elephant Man!
Abby: Mmm. And Rachel Dratch.

Quote of the Day: Ewan MacGregor has so many sex scenes... I am ok with that movie. It could only have been improved if we actually saw his penis. I bet it's sugar-coated. - Abby on Deception. (Which she just saw.)


Also, today is P-Day, and it is the best P-Day I have ever been to. Last year's was AWFUL (for many reasons) but this year Ellen and I bounced on things, and climbed rock walls, and rode a plastic bull, and did an obstacle course, and ate SO MUCH FOOD. And it was awesome and I had a Nutella filled crepe thing, and that was also awesome.


In conclusion, free food and inflatable things = ROCK!

A post of other people's posts!

1. A collection of quotes from Saturday, as recounted by Abby. Yes, that Abby. Here is a link to the post in her livejournal. Read, laugh, enjoy.


2. A bit of news stolen from the journal of

[profile] siriusly_sex that will make it clear why my love for Rupert Grint will never die. As I commented to her, I thought my love for him had peaked when he bought his own ice cream truck. I was wrong.

Grint Dislikes Bragging Lohan
Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix star Rupert Grint has ruled out moving to Los Angeles to boost his movie career - in fear of meeting party girls Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. The 19-year-old actor isn't keen on moving to Hollywood after a fraught meeting with the Mean Girls star left him disappointed by her egotistical boasts. And the British star has no intention to hook up with Lohan's former party pal Paris Hilton either. He says, "I met Lindsay last summer and she talked about herself a lot. She said she was going to win an Oscar before she turns 25. I just kept thinking, 'But you can't act'. I haven't met Paris and don't want to either. She and Lindsay are the type of girls you need to stay away from."

I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. SOOOOOO MUCH.

Who wants to party all the time? Not Rupert Grint, and not me either. CLEARLY WE ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER.





*Please excuse my overuse of CAPS LOCK OF JOY in the post. :)
Scenes from my life


As we were discussing Harry Potter yesterday:

Me:
I fucking hate Cho Chang.
Ellen: Cho Chang. She doesn't do anything but cry. And occasionally play Quidditch.


As we were discussing Franklin this evening:

Abby: I have a cousin that looks like Franklin.
Me: Franklin's a turtle.
Abby: Of this, I am aware.


As we were walking inside about five minutes ago:

Gaggle of very drunk boys: *spots Abby and me returning from the theater in our dresses* Woah, woah, woah! What's new pussycat? Whoh woah woah!
Abby and I: *run inside giggling*

Honestly. Of all the things you could say to hit on a girl, that's what you go with?
The following conversation just took place in my room:

Me: Abby, why is ATP crucial to the ligation reaction?
Abby: Because you're a whore.






I'm pretty sure it's because energy is needed for ligase to create the new phosphodiester bond between the 3 prime and 5 prime ends of the DNA backbone, but I'm not positive.
You know what really fucks with your head? Seagulls in the snow.

It's snowing right now, and there were about 20 seagulls cawing and fighting on the quad. It was so bizarre.

Then three guys walked by going, "Mine?" intermittently and it was kind of hilarious.


Anyways, now that I'm done with my Orgo test I can post all the random bits I've been meaning to.

First off: I'm on spring break starting Friday. I'm planning to go see Once on This Island Friday night, and possibly again on Saturday. And I'd rather not go alone...


Quotes from Peter Pan rehearsal last night:

Craig: *standing behind Phillip Noonan*  Now, Phillip is going to bend over and I'm going to pummel him...

Victoria: Ok. I'll just pummel Jon in the middle, and you can all pummel each other in a circle around us.

(We do this relaxation thing called "pummel and hum" and it's really very nice and relaxing, but also hilarious. And we all know it.)

Zach Pratt: *Leaps on Craig's back*
Someone: Zach, get off Craig. (It just sounded so bad.)


More Abby Quotes:

Abby: This movie was like golf golf, times golf.
Me: That's golf cubed!

Abby: Trust me, I know these things, I'm an English major.


Quotes from Philosophy of Religion:

Class: *discusses how Augustine slept with a lot of differet women*
Professor: So, why do men need to sleep with a lot of different women?
Zach: I don't know, I'm not good looking enough to sleep around.
Guy 1: There's more to us that just sex! I have a personality!
Professor: But why do men sleep with many different women?
Guy 2: Variety is the spice of life.
Zach: Hey! Women do it too!

And so on. It was the most interesting ten minutes of class yet, and that's including the digression about Star Wars that we had one day.


Finally, in genetics we keep talking about how Francis Crick solved almost every single genetic question that was raised, and he never did any experiments and he was almost always right. And apparantly that was greatly annoying to his contemporaries.


Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILY!!!

Random Abby Quotes:


On the Phone with her mother:
-*talking about some woman they know*  What a waste of Liposuction.


While Playing Rome: Total War:
-Don't mess with me. I've got fucking war elephants. With ROCKET LAUNCHERS. 





That's all.

Happy Leap Day!!!


I dunno how long I've had this lj, but I don't think I've ever posted that before. Hm.

In other news, Abby's vow of silence lasted only until about 3:30 the other day, because her mother called. But it did inspire me to write something, which I will be typing up and posting probably today. Would anyone like to beta it before I do? It's Harry Potter, but shockingly not slash. (Or romance of any kind, for that matter. Yay genfic!) Just let me know if you're up for it.


Have a nice extra day!

Scenes from Megan's life:


In Genetics Lab:

Professor Lippert: This Taq Polymerase is very expensive, so be careful.
Chris (one of my lab partners): How expensive?
Professor Lippert: 50 dollars for just one of these little bottles.
Chris: (after Professor Lippert has walked away) 50 dollars? That's not expensive. That's less than crack costs!
Me: I do not even want to know how you know that.


In Bed:

Abby: I hope if aliens ever come and demand a sacrifice, we give them Melissa Joan Hart.
Me: (after several seconds of going BWAH?) ... Go to sleep, Abby.


Upon Returning From Class:

Abby: I missed you.
Me: I was gone for an hour!
Abby: Come on. I miss you when you leave to go pee.



Also, Nora and I took a practice GRE the other day, and the word 'jejune' was on it, and I had never heard that word before EVER, and then it was in one of the songs in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels last night. Therefore, watching musicals will get you a higher GRE score. Tru fax.

Finally, Abby has taken a vow of silence. I don't know why, (neither does she) and I don't know how long it will last, but there you go.
Even though I own the entirety of Firefly on DVD, it’s on Sci-Fi right now, and when I saw that I screamed, threw the flicker away from me, and settled down to watch.

And speaking of screaming, I went to NYC this weekend and saw Spring Awakening


In any case, it was a lot of fun, the Healys deserve a medal, Spring Awakening is phenomenal, and if you want to hear more about the play, I can tell you in person. If you’re sure you want to know.  :)
