Okay, I guess it's official now.


I'm Erin, a college freshman currently living in DC. This journal is just about whatever is going on in my life currently and is full of nonsense and rants. I'm not particularly eloquent or philosophical, and my entries are in no way witty or highly entertaining. I'm random, silly, sarcastic, an avid lover of all things Jane Austen, music, ballet, period dramas, and gorgeous costumes. If you feel that you have reached this message by mistake, please take the time to hit the "back" button on your browser a few times to ensure that you don't return down whatever path took you here. However, if you came here on purpose, welcome! I love meeting new people. Comment to be added. :)

Based on the books on your bookshelf, what conclusions would people draw about you?

I read too much Jane Austen (and Austen-era fic) and Harry Potter. Seriously, when you've got the entire series in English AND Spanish, something is wrong. Also, it's a good thing I don't keep my costume drama DVDs on my bookshelf...
Okay, just for those who don't know. LJ is up to some spectacular fuckwittery, this time with Facebook and Twitter... stuff. I really can't explain this very well, so I'm going to link to someone who can:

Just thought I'd put that out there.

Have you ever had a nightmarish roommate? What made you incompatible? How did you eventually resolve your conflicts?

Heh, have I ever told you about the crayfish?...

Clearly this will be more pertinent next year when I live full-time with another person other than my sister (although I guess you could argue that she is my roommate. In that case, let me tell you that along with other ridiculous habits and things, the girl does not pick her clothes up off the floor, and I don't feel bad for no longer caring if her clothes are folded or not when I do our laundry), but there was Governor's School last summer when I lived on the only floor where people lived three-to-a-room (thank you, last name at the end of the alphabet!). We got along okay, but we really didn't interact outside of our room, and I haven't talked to either of them since we left. But there was the morning when I woke up and almost stepped on a crayfish that was crawling across the floor. Alice had brought it back from the science lab (also, thank goodness I didn't go to GSE for an academic subject!) and opened the container it was in to... feed it? Look I don't know. But I woke up Amanda when I yelped (I didn't have my glasses on yet, people. It could have been a HUGE cockroach for all I knew, and people on my floor had trouble with those) and Alice was like "oh, there it is!" Ah, good times.

Started snowing last night and it's supposed to continue to do so/sleet/freezing rain/winter weather until about 6:00 this evening. We've got inches here, which is MAJOR. This is the most snow we've had in probably ten years. A picture for a frame of reference:

Now I have to get in the shower, get dressed, and decide if I'm sledding at the elementary school up the road before other people destroy the good sledding snow, or if I'm playing in the yard with the dog first. :)
 Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to this one. :)
Have you seen New Moon? If so, how do you think it compared to the book? Was it better or worse than Twilight? Please, no spoilers!

On the home page, too! Damn you, LJ, for giving into this nonsense.

No, I haven't seen it, nor do I plan to see it if I have to pay for it. I refuse to fuel the hormonal, crazy hype that is Twilight. That being said, the book was so godawful that the movie doesn't have to do much to be better. I heard about the little montage with the months on the bottom of the screen and I can't decide if I'd laugh or shake my head at that. Probably both.

What's the most-played song in your music library?
Are you kidding me? I just looked all of these up and it didn't even post! Okay. Take number two.

On iTunes it's a tie between Charlotte Martin's Cut the Cord and Civilized and Holly Conlan's Without You Here, Idiot Song #3, and Train Song. They only have 2 plays because I mostly listen to music on my iPod(s) and I've only had this computer for a few months.
On my nano, which I listen to most often, it's the End Credits from the Pride and Prejudice soundtrack with 68 plays. Probably because it's on my sleep mix playlist and always seems to play before the sleep timer turns my iPod off.
On my classic, which I've had longest but don't use that often, it's Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata with 100 plays. Again, it's on my sleep mix.
On last.fm, it's Holly Conlan's Why I'm Here.

Also, first writer's block. Yay?
