Me, myself and my online aliases.

So I just made a new account on DW. Which is a little pointless and a lot ridiculous.
Why? Because back when I made this one, I didn't think of the now unavoidable fact that I own one alias that crosses all platforms.
I'm the Queen of Nonsense.
Whether it's on MSN, Twitter (which I only use for stalking purposes), any email provider I've ever used (except for my MSN address, go figure), Skype or even the PSNetwork, I use some variant of QueenOfNonsense.
And I didn't think of using it here. What the Heck.

So here I am, looking for a purpose for [personal profile] queenofnonsense . Maybe I'll turn her (yeah, it's a she) into a notebook account.
If anyone passes here by random browsing, I wouldn't mind some help! :D

Much love (yep, to the random passersby),
Queen of Nonsense

PS: Merry late Christmas, and happy New Year! =)

One in a million, or something like that?

I'm currently isolated for health risks.
In other words, there's a chance the influenza I caught is a case of A H1N1, and they don't want to take the any risks. Huh, sure, if you say so. I'm perfectly fine; it was mostly gone by the time my mom dragged me to the doctor's office, and all they had to say was "Well, we can't give you anything and we won't run tests because it's been too long, but you seem well enough so we'll just quarantine you until Sunday."

Sure, ruin my Halloween, no problem. It might not even be anything bad and that whole H1N1 thing is way overhyped for the benefit of the pharmaceutical industry (and the medias -- then again, is there anything that isn't overhyped for their benefit?), but keep me away from school (when I have exams coming up), from going grocery shopping (meanwhile, I have nothing left in the fridge and all I can eat until Sunday is brown rice with a side of nothing), from even going downstairs to get the mail.

Were I dying from a fever, I'd understand. Were I coughing my lungs out, I'd even agree with them.
But it's over and, aside from the leftover side effects of asthma which I've always had, I'm fine.
And while I'm isolated from the world, someone has a real case of A H1N1 influenza that goes untreated and is dying of it, I'm sure.
Damned over-zealous doctors.

Ultimate randomness breeds!

Adopt one today! . Adopt one today!

Yep, those are little dragon eggs. Yep, it's more of an experiment on pageviews than anything else.
And I love it.

Priorities: You're Doing It Wrong.

Huhuh. This entry is just one more proof of the title all by itself.
Irony, how I love thee.

I have... *checks* 93 pages of a Shakespeare play to read by tomorrow morning. And then I have 26 pages of Oreste (whatever he's called in English) and Elektra for another class. Which I was supposed to read yesterday, but didn't have the time to.
Why? Because I have no sense of priorities, that's why!
So instead of reading and gearing up for my exam, I was preparing for NaNoWriMo. Which is in a month. And sure, having just found a good idea for a novel is sweet, but then so is actually passing a course in a college program I had to sell my soul to get in!
... I'm only barely kidding.
And now I'm posting about my lack of priorities. Which is useless, stupid, and hopelessly demonstrating of how great I am at procrastination.

So says the girl who calls herself a literary nerd and a bookworm. Can't even get through a few acts of Shakespeare without having her attention taken by something else.
That isn't even shiny. Doesn't have watch parts or clock handles on it either. At least that'd have been understandable.

I'm stressed for that exam. And I'm not doing anything about it, except for making it worse.
What in all Nine Levels of Hell is wrong with me?

On money and the temptation of a paid account.

So, I've got three bucks on my Paypal account that are sleeping there, waiting to help out on my next purchase, but I don't plan on buying anything anytime soon.
... Except maybe that sickeningly pretty pocket watch on eBay with which I've had an obsession since last June. But considering I won't have 50$ to shell out on a watch 'till November (and even then, I'll be saving for G-Anime in February), I was thinking of trying a month of Paid Account over here. I mean, it's 3$, exactly what I've got on Paypal. And I don't plan on doing anything else with it.
And it's not completely useless, is it? I'm always on Dreamwidth, writing, deleting, re-writing, and reading a lot (I love comms. Sorry I'm such a lurker.), making icons, posting them for myself only until I've got enough and they're pretty enough to show the rest of the world, etc.

Only, I'm not sure. That watch sure is pretty. And maybe if I transferred money over progressively, I'd buy it sooner than I thought? And maybe, just maybe, I might find something I'll like more than a month's worth of a paid account. For 3$, I doubt it, but who knows? With my luck, a deal will come by just three seconds after I'm done.
And then there's the guilt. Because being a jobless student, I don't have much money on my hands. I have to pay the rent, the bills, the Cégep registration fees, the textbooks — oh and let's not forget I have to feed myself, too. Those three dollars, why spend them on the web, on something I don't need?

Ugh. I hate being financially aware and responsible. Why the Hell is everyone around me so carefree with their money when I can't spend three little dollars freely?
I'm a lost cause.
