Around 5’7”. Everybody thought I’d top out around 5’9-10”. I’m taller than average, often feel like I’m towering over many people, and yet I also admit to having a touch of short-person syndrome. My immediate family are all taller than average, and my friends growing up were all fucking Amazons. Compared to my little group of shot putters, I always felt like a shrimp! (All were at least 5’9”, one was same height as Dad, 6’2”, and her brothers? 6’5” and 6’9”. And they were fucking vegetarians born and raised.)
Seriously, someone needs to shop that picture. Not that I have any ill feelings towards those two lovely ladies, but they are a bit distracting from, you know, THE BOYS HUGGING EACH OTHER.
Also? Sean/McGee in jeans. AND FINGERS. *gulp*
Going back to staring for a few minutes.
Well, I’m done. The first two assignments, I think I did fine and got the idea of what I was supposed to do enough so that what I wrote wasn’t complete bullshit. The third assignment, though? Not so sure. I either just wrote a whole lot of bullshit and are going to have my ass handed to me sometime next week, or I at least KINDA got the idea and won’t have a come-apart when I get this shit back.
Right now, fortunately, I’m tired and a bit numb from the anxiety, and just happy that I have something to turn in tomorrow. Now? I think I’m going to… Fuck it, probably grab a nectarine and watch another episode of something. Or just eat said nectarine, crawl into bed, and get up in about six hours.

Just saying hello, En Fuego. ;) I can relate on sleeping hard. UGH, I’ve been so freaking tired lately.
I’ve just been staying up too late then having to get up early and walking all over HELL for classes :) And tomorrow? I get to get up BEFORE the butt crack of dawn for work :/ But fortunately, everything for most of my classes can wait. History, though? Kinda kicking my ass, and all we’re really doing is discussing the methods of history at this point. There will be very little actual HISTORY until next semester.
I just have to learn to keep to a more regular sleep schedule, something I’ve never been very good at.
And isn’t En Fuego great?!? Not really feeling it right now, but still ;P
Is it bad that I’m using Wikipedia as a source of information on primary sources? Seems almost… paradoxical or something.
Also? I’m tired, I really want to go to bed early-ish tonight, but I still have a lot of work to do. I’m an idiot, FYI :/
I do believe, though, that once I return home after work then class tomorrow, I’m sleeping HARD :)
It takes place in a world where same-sex couples (Parallels) run the government in close association with a powerful religious organization. Opposite-sex couples (Perpendiculars) are criminalized, sent to rehabilitation camps, and treated as outcasts.
Into this world comes Chris Bryant, son of a powerful minister. Chris has always been faithful to his Anglicant religion – even though he’s never felt like everyone else, never felt…Parallel. And then it happens: he meets her. Carmen. Daughter of one of the leading Perpendicular prosecutors…the girl he knows he can’t live without. Carmen has always thought the treatment of Perps is barbaric – but to actually be one? To fall in love with Chris and openly admit to it is suicide.Their only chance to be together is the Underground, a secret society Chris’s sister introduces him to that is determined to mount an attack against the social restrictions of the Anglicant church. They want to make an example of Chris and Carmen, two Perps from high social families, to become the catalyst for an uprising that will threaten the traditions of their society’s families and church.
But the cost of involvement just might be death for them both.
OUT is a thrilling new young adult speculative fiction novel (yup, that’s right – no apocalyptic cause here, just speculation on conscious survival of the species rather than natural selection) by Laura Preble, author of The Queen Geek Social Club trilogy (Berkley JAM). School Library Journal hailed Laura as “expertly handl[ing] the ups and downs of teenage friendship and romance, as well as…real characters who go through the typical trials of teenage life.”
We need funds to publish copies of the book and to help publicize it. Help us get OUT out there!” —

NO REALLY I WANT TO KNOW WHY THERE HAVE BEEN A FESTERING, WEEPING RASH OF BOOKS LIKE THESE RECENTLY. WHAT HAS GONE SO HORRIBLY WRONG IN OUR CULTURE AND IN OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT PEOPLE ARE WRITING THESE BOOKS AND SEEKING PUBLICATION FOR THEM AND NOT BEING YELLED AT AND TOLD THAT THEY ARE FUCKED UP AND GIVEN AN ASSLOAD OF READING MATERIAL WITH WHICH TO EDUCATE THIER FOOL ASSES MUCH EARLIER IN THE PROCESS?!
OMFG KILL IT WITH FIRE
So there’s an LGBT version of Save the Pearls now… o.o
No fucking way.
I don’t want it to be real.
No one would ever be this hamfisted, right?
