11:04 pm - Look, it's an actual post!
So, just when I think that today is going to be a pretty darn boring day, halfway through my Psych lecture, all the power in the lecture theatre dies. And the alarms start going off, and everyone has to evacuate the building.

And I still don't know why this happened.

Still, it meant I could leave early. Which was almost a disappointment (key word there being "almost") since I rather like this psych lecturer. He has a tendency to include random interesting historical trivia in his lectures, and going of on strange tangents.

Some random quotes from his lecture:

On Narcissus: "He basically pined away and died. Because he was so hot."

On Narcissism: "Of course, everyone is special and unique. But you shouldn't believe that too much."

Aside from that, the most interesting part of my day was seeing a girl with a hot pink mullet on the tram.

Anyhoo, over in fannish doings, the fallout from Sparkly Vampire 4 continues over at FW. However, just when people start to think the fandom, at least, might be living up to the title of "the next Harry Potter", along comes the real thing with a metaphorical LOL N00B!

Oh, and if Wank isn't your fannish style, Freema Agyeman is a sweetheart. But we already knew that.

Freema really does seem so lovely. ♥ Such a classy lady. More people like her in the public eye, please.

Which is probably why I get so irrationally angry when I see people bash her.

I hate bashing. I feel it's one thing to critique a person's acting abilities, but it so often gets personal and then it's very uncomfortable.
Like a post I read on the OG recently where people were trying to insist that David and Catherine themselves were bashing Freema.

There's a reason I don't go on those forums a lot...

Riiiight. Two professionals are going to rag like 12-year-olds on a fellow professional. Even if they didn't like her - and there's all evidence that David at least is friends with her - it would be the ultimate in stupidity.

It was one of the most ridiculous things I've read in a while.

It was an utter failure at interpreting with context.

*insert bitchy remark about how this failure of interpretation also implies to watching DW itself*

I know exactly the comment you mean.

Why must people be so much fail?

It's people like that who can really take the fun out of fandom if people let them. :-(

Haha. Nothing is crazier than Harry Potter fandom. Nice try, Twilight.

Harry Potter is king of the crazy fandoms.

God, I love it.

Twilight does appear to have more wank per page count. At least for the most recent book. Maybe because there's only been four books the wank has been more compressed.
