And that's terrible.

It is finished!

fialleril: [another armed occupation is not freedom] (Cham Syndulla)
And she bowed her head and handed over her spirit.

The thesis, a.k.a. the sword of Damocles that's been hanging over my head for the past semester, is done! Actually, it was finished and turned in yesterday, but let's not lie, I was way too tired to make a post about such then. I've pretty much survived the last two weeks on tea, energy drinks, and sheer will-power, as well as some very encouraging words and the understanding of a couple wonderful profs.

And, surprisingly, I don't completely hate the thing. In fact, I think I might have even had a couple interesting and original things to say. And most bizarrely of all, I'm actually kind of feeling the urge to write meta about the role of the mother of Jesus in John's passion narrative. But that can wait.

Right now, I'm sipping black currant wine and eating a doughnut (because I can!) and revelling in the prospect of at least a week of freedom. There are other papers to write before the semester is done, but somehow, none of them really seem to matter when you've pulled off a massive 60 pager. (With 100 footnotes. I'm absurdly proud of the footnotes, for some reason.)

AND, as though to ensure that this day would be wonderful, this morning when I checked my mailbox on my way to work, there was a package from [livejournal.com profile] starfoozle, who, for the record, is pretty much the greatest person on earth. She sent me Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine (yay summer reading), along with a card containing THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF ARTWORK I HAVE EVER SEEN!


Why yes, that is Slick, Cham Syndulla, Kitster Banai, and Palo Gvanish all in one picture. You guys have no idea how long I squeed over this. I've had a ridiculous love-sick smile on my face ALL DAY because of it.

And so. Thanks so much to everybody who left comments on my post of rage a few weeks ago. *hugs you all* I'll try to catch up on reading people's posts and fics and doing some memeage soon. :)

mmm pomegranates

fialleril: [tea makes everything better] (tea)
Another new layout, because I got sick of looking at white, and this one I think is less harsh on the eyes. The pic in my header is of an organic tea garden in the Darjeeling region of India.

And while we're on the subject of really great food and drink, I thought I'd share a recipe I made up on Thursday night. It turned out to be pretty excellent if I do say so myself.

Chicken Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Pomegranate

Chicken breast strips
One pomegranate
Green onions
Goat cheese (the crumbly spreadable kind)
A mix of herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, Italian seasonings...)
Pomegranate wine

Recipe under here, with pictures! )

Snagged this meme from [livejournal.com profile] jedi_em.

fialleril: [a hug means it's love] (Mai and Zuko)
So, you guys remember that shipping meme that was going around? I decided to do it for the lulz. But because I'm trying to keep it a light experience for myself, certain questions have been summarily dismissed to prevent this turning into a rant post. I'm sure you can guess which ones. Rape ship, I'm looking at you!
