Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] volwrath! :D :D :D

Just finished reading The Tale of Genji (Seidensticker translation), and uh. What. Whaaaaaaat.

More than half a semester spent reading this book and that's how it ends?!

Usually! Usually I agree with my Genji professor on just about everything re: this book. We make fun of the same stuff, we find the same chapters interesting, we both cry at the beginning of Chapter 42 (insert obligatory "soaking sleeves with tears" remark here). But she says the ending totally fits and I--

I mean, c'mon, he could've AT LEAST run off with her. They didn't have to sleep together (even Genji doesn't mess with nuns, right) but WHAT THE HELL, KAORU, YOU SPENT THE ENTIRETY OF YOUR CHAPTERS MOURNING ABOUT NOT GETTING LAID.

*crickets*

I wish this book weren't so dense and obnoxious, because I'd love ya'll to read it. I'd love the whole internet to read it, frankly; why is there no Genji fanfic? I'd KILL for the smallest bit of OOC slash, srsly. Or a parody. Shit. SOMEONE READ THIS BOOK BESIDES ME, PLZ, I FEEL LIKE A FANDOM OF ONE. I don't know what I'm going to do when the class actually ends, and I'm deprived of my twice-a-week hour-and-a-half fifteen-person discussion group. We are like a tiny fandom onto ourselves; we even have shipping wars (Genji/Murasaki OTP).

Gahhhhhh I think I'm actually going to miss reading the stupid thing. X( Time for supplementary materials. *cracks open Liza Dalby's Tale of Murasaki*

Well. This might've been due to the fact that I had an extra person in my room all week (*pokes at [livejournal.com profile] alegwyni*), but whatever the reason is, aforementioned irritating Fundamentalist (right you are, cousin-mine) has hardly spent more than five minutes in my living space. I am quite glad about this. :D

Annnnnd as of tomorrow I'll have officially dropped Intro to Computational Linguistics.

*HUGE sigh of relief*

I dunno, I guess this is the semester for figuring out what your limits are. @_@ It'll show up as a "W" on my transcript, but seeing as I really really HATE dropping things I'll likely never do it again, so it's all good. The best part being, of course, NO COMPLING.

This isn't meant to reflect badly on the professor or anything--he's still my major advisor, I still love him lots--but seriously, I want to take LINGUISTICS CLASSES, not programming classes DISGUISED as Linguistics. Ugh. Perl. UGH. @_@

But so yey no more of that. <3333333

I'm now a 14-hour student! With Tuesday and Thursday afternoons mostly free, barring kung fu! *celebratory dance of happy* AND I NEVER HAVE TO WRITE IN PERL EVER EVER EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!

Plus also I get to see [livejournal.com profile] volwrath and [livejournal.com profile] sherpa_sherpa (and [livejournal.com profile] tehkiwidelight, you're coming home too right???) this weekend, next week, whenever, that always makes the whole world like a million times better.

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] tanisacrolith? You need to CALL ME, sir. I haven't heard from you in FOREVER and I want to know what's going on with you. Mum sends her love, as do I. <3
