long time no see

It's been quite a while since I've been on LiveJournal. To be honest, I'm not sure what compelled me to stop by here... I've been sticking with Facebook lately, when I'm actually online.

Quite a lot has changed. I've graduated college; I have my B.S. in Animal Science. I'm working at Twin Rivers Animal Hospital as a veterinary technician. I'm living with my folks still, and I'm actually going back to Rutgers for a second degree. I'm hoping to go to vet school.

I'm dating a guy named Erik, he's outdoorsy and fun and he's gonna be my anesthesiologist when I'm a doctor. :) My dysfunctional second family of friends now includes several of my coworkers, whom are all insane. I still have Savannah, but my family of animals now also includes a horse named Beckham, who is Santiago's full brother, two fish, and two cats: a tabby female named Emerald and a black male named Jasper. I love my animals more than words could ever hope to describe.

So I don't really know if I'll make a habit of posting here again. I probably will, but I make no guarantees. For now, I need a shower, then I have to get to class. TTYS?

300...

...was good. Pretty. Not as violent as I expected. Children of Man was much worse. I actually laughed at parts of 300, because it was campy. But I liked it a lot.

talk shows

I've been going to the gym every day lately (yay!), and they of course have TVs set up near the exercise machines. Therefore I have had the dubious pleasure of watching what the other people at the gym enjoy. Usually it's set to MTV (*retch*) or ESPN, but often it's set to a talk show.

This has pretty much solidified my dislike of talk shows. I simply don't get it. First of all, why do these people even *have* talk shows? Why the hell do I care what Megan Mullally or Kelly Ripa have to say? *They* don't even have clue one what the hell they're talking about. And the shit that comes out of their mouths makes me cringe. It's so completely and blatantly fake, and there's no actual interest or intelligence involved.

My favorite quote to date:
Megan Mullally: "Are you from So-and-so, California?"
Blithering Idiot: "I am from So-and-so, California!"

WHAT. THE FUCK. I can't even wrap my brain around that one.

Another thing about talk shows. The guest comes in, and the host and guest have this fairly long conversation about shit that the audience is totally disconnected from. I feel like I'm eavesdropping on a private conversation. And they say things that are tantamount to inside jokes; I would guess maybe 10% of the audience has any idea what's going on. This morning was a charmer - Martha Stewart making cocktails at 10am with her guest, Rupert Everett. Everett actually had some interesting things to say - eventually. But the first 5-8 minutes that Everett was on screen, he and Martha Stewart were gabbing away about their experiences in Brazil. And it wasn't like, "Oh this isn't so bad, obviously the producer wants them to plug Brazil, they're just trying to get people to fly down there." No, it was definitely more of a "you had to be there" moment.

Martha Stewart: "We had piranha every night."
Rupert Everett: "Every night? No kidding. Did they do it with the stick?"
Martha Stewart: "No, with the bucket."

Thank you, you two, for proving that you're only doing this to be on TV.

What it boils down to is... Why have a talk show if you have NOTHING TO SAY?

Agh. I... I just can't. Agh. Brain hurts.

(no subject)

It PISSES me off SO FUCKING MUCH that some people have no sense of fucking responsibility. They can just fucking TAKE TAKE TAKE all they fucking WANT, but GOD FORBID they should have to fucking give a damn thing.

I think one of the worst feelings in the world is when you're exhausted and sick, and something is keeping you from going to sleep.
