No love.
None whatsover.


So I sent my mom two train tickets by certified mail two weeks ago. They're still listed as having arrived in NY on December 11. Mom and Isaac are leaving in three days, and will need those tickets when they arrive. Plus, since mom isn't the person who sent them, she can't initiate a search for them. I have the pleasure of doing that. Only, apparently you have to call. And I'm at a youth hostel in Bilbao on an ancient computer over dubious and decrepid internet, and not only does it not have skype, I don't think that it's capable of having skype, even if it had a microphone, which I don't think it does.

So I sent them an e-mail, but I'm rather dubious as to whether it will do any good.

And did I mention that the bunch of letters and postcards (including an envelope to my mom) that I sent at the same time have all arrived?

I'm probably going to disappear from the internets to a greater or lesser extent for the next while.

That's all.
Well, all besides the baby dragons:

Betting is now open for when Housing will tell me where I'm living next semester.
The facts:
The housing form (which was sent about the first week of October) was due November 21.
Since they've agreed to let me move back onto campus January 17th, they have to tell me where I'm living before then (right?). Actually, probably the 16th, since [livejournal.com profile] tigerlofu is picking up the keys so that I can move in on a day when the office is closed, and I think that even Housing is aware that I need to have the keys before I can move in.

So - place your bets. If you guess right, you'll get a hug. Or a cookie. Or something like that.

And dragons.

Nudity to protest war and injustice.

And of course, here there be dragons.

I miss having company whilst I study. By which I do not mean having the tv running all the time, or a four-year-old bouncing all over the room.

Let's start with the haiku:
Haiku2 for 3rdragon
consider this a
victory in miriam vs
pa bureaucracy
Created by Grahame

You have to be a bit creative with pronounciation to make the syllables work, but I like it anyway.

And another, which rather encapsulates Spain:
Haiku2 for 3rdragon
what I'm going to
do when supper may not end
until 10 or 11
Created by Grahame

Dream and rambling )

And of course, dragon:
Adopt one today!

Stolen from Mel and Talia:

Your Score: House Targaryen

54% Dominant, 54% Extroverted, 72% Trustworthy

Ancient. Noble. Passionate to the point of insanity. Transcending lesser beings, you are of House Targaryen.

You are a dominant personality—in fact, you are the most dominant of all eight house types. You will not suffer yourself to be ignored. You will not suffer yourself to be ruled. The phrase "I will not suffer myself to _____!" was practically made for you. You are willful, arrogant, and exceedingly dangerous to screw with. With a temper like yours, anyone stupid enough to saunter into your line of fire won’t soon forget their mistake.

You are also extroverted, which means that everyone in the world knows exactly what your intentions are. Unlike your cohorts (who hide behind smiles and courtesies and court politics), you think of it as your birthright to come riding in on an enormous dragon, breathing fire and fucking your siblings. Hey, what you lack in subtlty, you make up in style!

Finally, you are trustworthy. Your absurd amounts of power and borderline psychosis are not used unjustly. Unlike many, your general aims are just and true. You we bred for rule, and the fact that you cannot rest until you are doing so is not your fault. If you make up your mind, it becomes reality. Never one for empty threats or vainglorious lies, you can only speak the truth. And the truth is "fire and blood."

Representative characters include: Daenerys Stormborn, Rhaegar Targaryen, and Viserys Targaryen

Similar Houses: Baratheon, Lannister,and Tully

Opposite House: Frey

When playing the game of thrones, you play it to the death.

It looks to me like I just barely slid in with dominance and extrovertedness (I get introvert on the test with four letters whose name escapes me. Myers-Briggs, that's it), and I wouldn't say that I'm very passionate or that I won't suffer myself to be ignored, but the dragon is really cool. Of course, it's been long enough since I read the books that I don't recall who is who. Maybe I'll re-read them, and finally get around to the newest one. After I finish The Return of the King, and maybe re-read Neverwhere.
