Self-improvement is masturbation.

lu: (The facts)
It's been ridiculously long since my last update. So, yeah.

Vacations, in general, are pretty normal -- going out with people, talking for hours about absolutely random facts of life, healthily getting drunk once in a while... It was great having [livejournal.com profile] paradoxo_mental and [livejournal.com profile] magnun around. I wonder how the hell I'll survive without them.

On the subject of productive things I have done with my free time, I've finally got myself to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's and to start reading Fight Club. God. So far the movie seems like one of the greatest adaptations ever. This is just such a brilliant book -- it must have been so damn hard to write that script.

On an unimportant side note, the feeling I'll jump out a window if I sit around waiting for college to start one minute longer grows exponentially according to the days I have been on vacations: 244.

But I can assure you people that in less than two weeks you will have a very, very happy Lu -- stressed with exams, obsessed with grades, ranting about her classmates and just glad to be back to her normal self.

Post scriptum: can anyone help me finding links to download Queer as Folk? Thank you so much. *grins*

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
