New American teacher came today. She's older, 50ish, has experience and will probably leave my crazy school as soon as she can. They're firing Isaac, the turkish guy I work with because they're racist and he's middle eastern (i.e. not american enough). He's very sweet but he's here working illegally and it's kind of messy.

I know have three house plants, Freude, Gertie and Phebe. They're awesome.

I also have dragons because I needed some. *hugs [livejournal.com profile] lanna_kitty*

Looket!
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Okay, so I'm a silly, sill american girl and the wigs kill me. So does JAMIE BAMBER and the accents.

And hey, it's like raining for moving there. That's it. I'm completely in love with this show.

Imagine you live in a place where everyone around you has exactly the same hair color. You all have the same eye color, basically the same body shape. There are variations, but they are subtle. Squinty eyes versus round ones. Flatter chins, rounder chins, but they're all slight.

Each city here is barely over thirty years old. Their written language is one that has been repressed by the Chinese, several times, and now they seek out the west.

It's a point of honor to speak like a native speaker of English. American clothes, American food, American television...they're all here. Chinese movies aren't here. Indian cinema is just as big and it's not here.

Being white is special. Seen as better. Women here have their noses changed. Their chin's filed into points. Old men buy me strawberries and press them into my hands with toothless grins because they remember the Korean war. I barely know anything of it.

Korean mothers push their children towards me with little gifts and ask me to help them. If they speak English well, propaganda says they will have good jobs and be respected.

No culture is better, is it?

hee!

Title: Synthesis
Author: Oparu
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): Beverly Crusher/Jean-Luc Picard
Warning(s): smut
Summary: missing scene from Fair Trade. Life on a starship. Plotless. Banter. Smut.
Thanks all mistakes are mine, but [livejournal.com profile] lanna_kitty helped me greatly.
Disclaimer: Star Trek does not belong to me.
A/N: Couldn't fit it in the story. Couldn't get it out of my head. If I had a DVD, I'd stick it on there. On the commentary I'd say this one of the better sex scenes I've written. In my biased and entirely nonobjective opinion.


and on the DVD release )

hehe! I really like this one, so spam me on it, please :)

In your comment, pick a story I have written and a character within. In a drabble that I will write, that character gets to take me out for a beer (coffee, glass of wine, anything appropriate) and harass (or thank me). If you have a specific topic, you may put it in your reply and I will attempt to use it.

Try this it's fun! It hurts your brain a little.

I also desperately need emergency betaing of my fixit fic. I'll owe you and do things for you. *nods* I can even mail you strange korean things if you want. It's on the prompt Elizabeth and John are captured together by the Asurans. It's kinda smutty and has Teyla/Sam friendship. 4500. Yes, I procrastinate...but I'll owe you.

I was pestering talking to [livejournal.com profile] lanna_kitty at work and she sent me to the wider world of journal.


Today I have three complaints about fanfiction. So I present them to you in a multiple choice test.

Fanfiction thoughts for today:

A) If I do a small bit of research on wikipedia about anatomy, readers think I'm amazing and are surprised.

B) Why writing primarily functional pairings makes me less talented of a writer than you.

C) How your one sentence comment on my 8 chapter story means I am obligated to read your 48 part WIP.

D) How 600 words constitutes an entire chapter.

Chapter One - Klingons make the best liars. )

So, I was reading grammar rants on [livejournal.com profile] havocthecat's corner of the world about advanced English grammar. I basked in the moment of advanced English grammar.

Just for today? No is )

On an unrelated happy note? I went to the movies, midnight show is $3! and SUPER nice. I'm sitting in front of two Korean children and mom and dad, young, 3-6ish. Children can say "hello" and "this is for you." The say hello, giggle, sit in their seats and then, for the rest of "Princess of Moonacre" Not spectacular but fun and blissfully in English, every few minutes they tap me on the shoulder and soulfully hand me pieces of popcorn. "This is for you." They don't seem to understand no. "Thank you" amuses them. They smile and wave and giggle harder because I wave differently. Mom and Dad are totally at a loss because even hello is beyond them but they smile! They don't stop the children. They actually smile and let the kids give me popcorn. They let smallest kid pull on my jacket, drag me down to her level and grab my cheek as if she'd never seen anything like it.

Oh humanity, you do love me, don't you?

I'm back in the PC room because I don't have internet at my house yet *pouts*. It's early in the day, so I'm completely surrounded by little boys. (the only other woman here is working at the desk)

PC rooms are a male dominated activity. So, Korean boy #1 who's probably 8 or so maybe 10 at the oldest sees me and giggles. So he walks over. Stares at me for awhile. Then he says hello.

I say hi and smile and he giggles and disappears. Korean boy #2, appears a little bit later. Same very pondered, very well thought out "hello". Saying "Hi" and waving makes him giggle and disappear. I think I'm done. Then Korean boys #3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 run around the corner and say hello. One by one. Then bravest boy says "how are you?" "I am fine" is the only response they know, but they are very very cute. :)
