For anyone who has not yet seen that video of Susan Boyle singing on "Britain's Got Talent."

Don't give up on those dreams, guys. This woman is 47 - that's an awfully long wait to get your dream. But I think it must have been worth the wait just to see the audience give her a standing ovation on the fourth lyric.

P.S. If you just want the audio, I've ripped it to an MP3. Let me know if you try to download it and run into trouble.

Sound quality is the best I could manage. It's the audio for the ENTIRE above video, so if you just want her singing, you'll have to crop it yourself. The only sound mixing program I had on my comp was free, and it ran out earlier this year. You can probably find a free sound mixing program to download yourself though, if you look.

Overheard in my Film class today:

"...and if Obama doesn't win? There's gonna be minorities marching in the streets down there!"

(Pause. People nearby nod.)

"...Hopefully with weaponry."

We were all so nervous in Film that our instructor asked one of the students with a wireless laptop to keep checking the election results in between our class discussions and the viewing of Hitchcock's Psycho. (Which, by the way, I've seen before. But it's much better the second time around, not being preoccupied with trying to get into the pants of the girl I first saw it with. But never mind.)

As the chain pulled Marion Crane's car from the swamp, the kid checking the results reported that it looked like a win for Obama, but I had to come here to the library and check it myself.

And my friends list is reporting that the weaponry WON'T be needed.

It's been declared a win for Obama.

God fucking damn. HE DID IT!

If you're not happy? Fine. Mourn in your own journal. Personally, I'm pretty pleased with America today. For pretty much the first time in eight years, it doesn't seem like a place the world should give up on if it only could.

And just so you guys know, the rest of the world is going to be pretty happy, too.

Oh, yes. And I passed all my midterms. Aced Film, in fact. *winks*

Good night, all!

Discovered via [ profile] t_eyla:

Steven Moffat will be replacing Russell T. Davies as head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who.

For anyone who might watch Who, but not be sure who he is: he wrote the two-parter, "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances," in series one; "The Girl in the Fireplace" in series two; and the well-awarded, "Blink," in series three. Also, "Time Crash," and the upcoming "haunted library" two-parter this series.

I spent a solid twenty minutes HAPPY DANCING to this news! I mean, I physically got up and danced. And giggled and grinned to myself for about an hour while I had lunch. SO MUCH YAYNESS AND AWESOME.

Also? I have a giant Dairymilk bar all to myself right now.

Did I mention my boss gave me the week off?

Well, she did. And honestly, there's a LOT I should be doing with it and have been slacking on because I've not felt well and have been sleeping a lot. But I'm refusing to think of it for the next few hours, anyway. I'll get to some stuff tomorrow; but with that promise to myself in mind, I'm definitely taking this evening OFF.

Because at the moment I'm all alone in my house. My mom just went out to a party. My sister is out with friends at a movie. I'm completely by myself. How could I waste this?!

So I'm blasting, "I Can't Decide," by the Scissor Sisters at top volume, reading fannish stuff, dancing stupidly and getting pleasantly-but-not-stupidly drunk off my mother's red wine. (I don't think she'll mind. She can't drink that much red anyway, she's allergic to this stuff! How'd she ever get through half a bottle? And lest anyone be concerned about my alcohol consumption, I drink about three times a year. I'm capable of getting trashed off one cooler.)

It just doesn't get better than this, I tell you.

I really have no words for how I felt when I found this in my hotmail inbox after I got home from work the day Lester was put down.
