11:07 pm - a stupid complaint.
I am too young, too young, too young.

2:27 pm - You've all read The Corrections, right?
Becoming Denise Lambert just seems more and more tempting each day. Drop the fuck out of this prestigious Philadelphia-area liberal arts school, become a chef, and sleep with everyone.

Hooray!

Being on the receiving end of pity is so much worse than being on the receiving end of anger.

current mood: sulky/coughing

12:07 pm - Order of the Phoenix (Warning: Major dorking ahead)
Saw it Thursday night. Overall impression: Favorable.

Ralph Fiennes is a motherfucking scary Lord Voldemort; I hadn't been all that impressed with his big scenes in The Goblet of Fire, but I think the changes in the storyline in the 5th book plus changes in the feel of the film really allowed the character to rise to his full potential. Especially in that scene where Harry has that vision that Voldemort is in the crowd at King's Cross. The fact that Ralph Fiennes is a sexy, sexy man adds to the menace of his performance, because it even shows through the pale snake-face makeup and you realize that you find this embodiment of evil rather attractive, at some level. I also adored Helena Bonham Carter's Bellatrix; I've actually thought that she would be perfect for that role ever since I read the book (No, seriously!). Gary Oldman is a decent Sirius, but he's Gary Oldman, and his whole manner keeps making me think that he's going to do something sinister. I like David Thewlis' Lupin as well, but the costume makes me think of young Hitler in a schoolboy outfit (Just saying...)

I was particularly impressed also with Azkaban. I had never thought of it the way it was presented, but it was perfect.

Luna Lovegood was too attractive and not weird enough.

I continue to hate the way they have rendered the centaurs, and I'm sad that they cut out the subplot in which Trewlawny was replaced with one of them (though I forget which). On the whole, though, I thought the editing was well done. Sure, it made the story a lot less complex (Cho didn't go all bitchtastic, Harry was relieved of any responsibility for fucking up the Occlemancy lessons, etc), but it made for a better movie. I just wish they had done more with the Department of Mysteries.

One final thought: I wish Terry Gilliam would direct at least one of the movies. I was sitting in the theater, thinking about movies that fit my vision of the book, and suddenly I hit it: Brazil. Just a thought.

Anyway, I meant to write this when I came back from the movie, but I was sleepy and then I forgot. I swear I used to have witty things to say. Bah.

10:06 am - gawdawful, strange mood
Sometimes, I really resent the happiness of those close to me, and long for the now-lost time when we were all confused and miserable.

current mood: foul

9:42 am - I am reading instead of working.
"...the Obedience Experiments point us towards a great social psychological truth, perhaps the great truth, which is this: people tend to do things because of where they are, not who they are, and we are slow to see it. We look for character traits to explain a person's actions--he is clever, shy, generous, arrogant--and we stubbornly underestimate the influence of the situation, the way things happened to be at that moment. So, if circumstances had been even only subtly different...the behaviour might have been radically different." (From an essay in the Autumn 2000 issue of Granta about Stanley Milgram)

I just saw Annie Hall for the first time, and now I've got that fabulous feeling of contentment that only good movies can give.

This weekend was a confusing mix of the happy and the incredibly sad. Though I think/hope that the happy trumps the sad. My perception of life has become relatively tospy-turvy less than a week away from my 17th birthday. Efffphhh <The sound of lazy exhaustion. Anyway, today was bad during the AP English language and composition exam, because I fucked it up, and am definately not recieving a score that will exempt me from any courses in college. But things looked up when my guidance counselor was able to move me into a higher math course for next year without any trouble. It also appears that art class is immediately followed by art history next year. Which is nifty.

8:31 pm - Encounter with mass destruction
Today I was a car accident. I've never been in one before. It was relatively minor; I wasn't hurt (aside from wrenching my back a little bit) and no one else in the car was hurt badly. It was a bizarre experience.

Right now, I can't decide whether I want to sleep or stay up all night. I had been planning to start my government essay du jour (well, not literally du jour, obviously) tonight, but my ambition died after the first sentence. Hmm.

The fat on my chin takes away from my face. I'm attempting to get rid of it. Just that, though; I rather enjoy my little belly.

I don't believe that I will have a boyfriend until I enter college. I'm not sure that it's worth taking a shot at anyone (Well, "anyone" being he who fascinates me when I see him in the hall and he does not see me or know my name) in the senior class because they all leave in about half a year. And my class, the junior class, is rather unappealing. I don't envy this boyfriend that I hopefully will have in college; he will have to deal with a girl who has not even been kissed and who is probably bad at it. Oh dear, that was at once teen-movie and pathetic.

I've gone from lovably neurotic to annoyingly neurotic within two years. Or maybe I've just gained more personality quirks that make me annoying.

Mmmph, some day I will fix all these things that I dislike about myself.

8:42 pm - I could be curing my own insomnia by going to sleep...
I really dislike my voice but I really enjoy my laugh.

I saw a photograph of Joan Miró taken by Man Ray and wished that I could have lived in Paris from about 1915 to 1930.

On Wednesday, I walked to the CVS around 5:00 pm. The sky was very dark in that sort of blue-Payne's grey way and there was a steady drizzle. I decided to wear my black half trenchcoat and carry a large black umbrella. I hope that someone saw me and thought that I was some sort of apparition. In fact, it was my intention that that happen.

That is all.

Heh, I just read that it's Jon Stewart's birthday. Hott.

Maybe I should make an effort to generally fangirl less in this journal. But where is the fun in that?
