Haven't been doing much of anything lately. >.> Mostly I've been alternating between studying frantically for midterms and procrastinating. The Calc midterm is going to eat me dead. x.X I looked back at my old homework and literally blanked out. I have no clue what it's talking about. I foresee much frantic calling of people who are taking/have taken Calculus in the next few weeks.

...Governor's school, too. I don't know whether or not I should apply to Healthcare anymore. I suck horribly at essay-writing in all its incarnations, I have no idea whatsoever about the project proposal...it's looking bad. Add to that the fact that on the miniscule chance I do get accepted, it'll take five weeks out of my summer, and we've been planning a roadtrip of sorts with a billion college visits which will probably conflict with that.

There's also the question of Schaffer's research project at Lehigh. It's...I dunno, to do with environmental studies and stuff. Apparently the guy who heads it has obtained funding for the project itself, but the matter of funding for a student researcher (me) is still up in the air. If he does obtain funding for the position, I'm staying here instead of going to governor's school. But both are pretty uncertain as is and...gah.

Essentially, I'm not sure if I'm going to apply to governor's school or not, and I'm leaning towards not applying. If the funding for Schaffer's research project is obtained, I'll have something to do at home that will in all likelihood look just as impressive as governor's school. But if it isn't obtained and I haven't applied, I'll be sitting at home with nothing to do, except for college visits. And perhaps studying for Biology, because I plan to take the SAT II for that in October. And maybe I'll ask if Kaplan needs people to grade essays for their SAT prep programs or something.

But yeah. It's a gamble either way. I'm just inclined to not-apply because I'm horribly pessimistic and lazy. :/

On a completely unrelated note, [livejournal.com profile] arcticfox547 and I have started the PPC manga, which can be found here: [livejournal.com profile] ppc_manga. Check it out. Only two pages are up but more will appear soon, we promise. :P

On another completely unrelated note, I have begun to write an application to Landel's. After some thought, I decided that as hysterical as it would be to stick Scieszka in Landel's, she probably wouldn't be able to cope with the place. So I'm going with my second choice - a certain Inspector First Class.*

*Actually, I couldn't decide whether to apply as Scieszka or Javert and ended up flipping a coin. >.>

Right, so I found this Crucible Sue, and before you ask, yes, I'm a loser, and yes, there does indeed appear to be a very small Crucible fanbase, which I happened upon a few days ago. Half of the fics consist of extremely dull POV vignettes, and the other half seems to be "Buh? WTF?" stuff (though there was one scriptfic that was vaguely amusing, featuring Ghetto!Tituba). Anyway, I found this Sue, the author of which does not appear to realize that 'Liliana' is not even remotely close to a Puritan name.

And what is with all the Hale fangirls? I mean, I know he's a sympathetic character, and he's an intellectual, and I - well, that explains it, doesn't it...

So I was doing research on the actual Reverend John Hale in order to PPC this atrocity (yes, yes, I said I was a loser already! Leave me alooooooone), and I found what are apparently scans of a book he actually wrote on witchcraft. And then, halfway down the first page, I saw this:

And then I went OMG WIZZARDS. Because...Pratchett. *dies* Heee.

...okay. I'll go and do my homework like a good Asian girl, is that it? *slinks off*

You have to say one thing about the PPC: We're quick when it comes to responding. We've got a Narnia Division up and running to combat the Sues that are already appearing as a result of the movie (one of them is the spawn of Professor Kirke and Jadis, however that works out *gags*), and Christopher Robin is now safely installed in a room in FicPsych (with a complimentary portal-generator to the Hundred-Acre Woods).

xD I <3 the PPC.

Also, I need to plug this link: http://web.archive.org/web/20041024001257/home.uchicago.edu/~rascalzo/arch/palace/library/contents.html

It's amazing. I <3 it.

(I also <3 Pathy's new Wingbound chapter. It's not all that hard to figure out why. x3)

Grand total of 24 more words since yesterday, due to extreme business.

For your entertainment, though, I provide my entry to the newest round of "Fill the Plothole" at the PPC Message Board, because I'm vaguely proud of it. In case you didn't know, "Fill the Plothole" is a highly entertaining game in which the first poster skims through the "Just In" section at fanfiction.net and puts up the weirdest-sounding/badly-spelled summaries on the board. In order to play, you pick any of the summaries and write a short ficlet based around the summary. The fics don't have to involve the PPC, or even be humorous for that matter, but a good majority of them are both because we're the PPC and we're crazy like that. xP

So, without further ado, the summary I picked:

4. PHANTOM RELIVED by ErikandChristine
Dreams like this can't come true, but mine did. In it was everyone from the books. But i wasn't living in a book because this was real. I was RELIVING THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. First FicPlease R&R


And the ficlet I wrote based on it. Contains spoilers for the Leroux Phantom of the Opera, I suppose.
