If you see this, quote Shakespeare:
"Nought's had, all's spent
Where our desire is got without content
'Tis safer to be that which we destroy
Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy"
I am having SO MUCH FUN finding icons for my journal. Summer - pretty ! Matthew Fox - manly! House - sexy! ( He IS)
So I have to go to a party tomorrow night, which would normally be a cool yay situation, except that it's, like, out of London somewhere (look, leaving zone 2 is a trial for me. Leaving London is like a *prison sentence*). But worse than that, it's for the boyfriend of a dear friend of mine who's a tree hugging, do gooding hippie type and just to illustrate my point, check out this small sample from the wordy invitation:
"There will be a gathering of an evolving community whose pace not even it can keep up with. So it is with this secret note that the message reaches your very hands and heart. It is the gathering of a lost and found generation, whose tides are turning the fortune of time."
It's not that I don't like him (I do), it's that crap like that is lame, embarrassing, makes me laugh meanly about him behind his back, and fills me with dread at the thought of the guest list. On the bright side, I'm bound to have a great time because my expectations couldn't be any lower.
I watched that ol' classic Smallville ep, Prodigal last night. I can't say anything about it that hasn't already been said a million times, but I did notice something about myself while I was watching it. Every time Clark or Lex was onscreen I practically squealed and for the entire ep I had a big grin on my face. A big happy grin. Fandom is changing me. Because I swear I didn't used to enjoy television this much (and I enjoyed it a LOT before). Anyway, Prodigal. See for me, it's all about the shallow. Clark, with his cute hair just looks so young and gorgeous. And Lex is at his absolute sexiest and most beautiful. I love the scene when he visits Lucas at the mansion and he's smiling to himself and all, "Careful, Lucas. You're showing your hand." *dies* If you ever fall out of love with Clark or Lex, watch this episode and let your heart melt right into your armchair.
