  • Recently I've noticed that there is a circle right under my chin, about an inch and a half in diameter, where no hair grows -- a bald spot in my neckbeard stubble. What the hell? It's like I've been given electrolysis in my sleep.

  • My mother is coming to visit tomorrow. It's the first time I've seen her since February 2008, so we've got lots of catching up to do. Must remember to clean up a bit tonight. Underwear lurking in corners does not a mother-friendly house make.

  • So I gave Transformers: Animated another chance, because...well, I was bored, it was a bank holiday, and I was procrastinating on my essay. I have to say, I kind of like it. I still think some executive pointed at Gargoyles and said "get me something like that!" (I imagine this exec looking a bit like J. Jonah Jameson, complete with cigar), but it did keep me watching for five episodes straight. It's shiny brain candy, especially for a brain that's been going all GIANT ROBOT lately.

  • In semi-related news, further procrastination and [ profile] beexsam have conspired to produce 2,700 words of a WIP interspecies robot romance fanfic.

  • Yesterday, I actually voted for an act in Britain's Got Talent. You can all mock me now.

  • If you weren't already mocking me for the robot romance, that is.

A conversation held with my boyfriend last night, on the differences between summer blockbusters with robots in:

"So one has giant robots, the other has...regular-size robots?"

"I dunno, some of the Terminators in the new film are pretty huge."

"Okay, so one has robots that turn into other stuff."

"Dude, remember the T-1000?"

"Right. I got it. One has a sexy cast, the other has Christian Bale?"

"Come on! I defy you to even name anyone other than Shia in the Transformers cast."

"I wasn't talking about the human cast."


"Hey, if thinking giant robots that turn into cars are hot is wrong, I don't want to be right."

" should change your journal title to that."

So I've been sweating bullets trying to get my essay up to about 2,700 words so it's not too far under and...then I re-read the guidance note. It's not a 3,000 word essay at all. It's a 2,000 word essay.

I guess I can stop freaking out now. And start feeling dumb.
