Tony works (by matilda7)

Ugh.

I'm currently not on my beloved laptop, 'cause I went to work with my friend T. today (just for the hell of it). I have to use IE. I've gotten so used to the Firefox interface that IE just seems wrong. (Well, IE is just wrong anyway, but even more so after Firefox.)

In other news: I actually got up before 8:00 this morning. I had forgotten that hour existed. :-P

(Also, I can't believe I still have this icon. *points*)

Ah, dorkiness.

I just played Guitar Hero! Okay, so I played "Slow Burn" (I think that was the name of the song)... on slow... and still only got 88%... but still! It was my first time, and it was fun. Though I think I prefer DDR, if only 'cause my hands don't cramp up. And there are only four directions to keep track of.

Also, I am currently watching Cash Cab. For those of you who don't watch the Discovery Channel, it's a game show that takes place in this guy's cab in NYC, where you answer trivia questions for cash. It's fun. And yes, I'm a geek.

ETA: How dorky am I? I actually went to the Wikipedia page that lists the songs in Guitar Hero III; the name of the song I attempted to play was actually "Slow Ride".

Fic cliches

Have you ever read post-OotP independent!Harry fics? You know, the ones that generally have manipulative!Dumbledore, Sirius's will, helpful goblins, and Harry somehow gaining a ridiculous amount of political and magical knowledge in the space of a few months?

I love those fics. I know they're horribly cliched, oftentimes badly written, and have big enough plot holes to drive a tank through, but I adore them. (As long as they don't have traitor!Hermione. That pisses me off--especially since right after OotP, she's the most loyal of Harry's friends.)

And I like the shopping scenes that inevitably ensue after Harry hits Gringotts and discovers he has a metric asston of gold. Most people that profess an opinion hate those scenes, but I love them. I don't know why; perhaps I just enjoy being contrary.
