Flooded in :(

I am supposed to be at work right now, but unfortunately the street in front of my house flooded out this morning and my car is sitting in a couple feet of water right now, so I have to wait until some of it drains away so that I can leave. At least I know the car will be fine. A couple of years ago I drove it through water so deep it was sending waves onto the hood (our area floods a lot) and it made it out okay. There's a reason I call it the Yacht!

Last night I went to bed at 9:00 and then woke up at 4AM and could not go back to sleep. Apparently my brain thought that I was taking a nap, probably because I've been going to bed at about 5AM lately. Anyway, I laid in bed until about 7:30 and then got up and went to Starbucks and read the paper like an elderly person. I've been looking at the ads because I'd really like to get a cheap but functional laptop. A friend of mine recently bought a new laptop for about $450, and I'd love to find something that cheap. I figure I can always buy extra memory or a high capacity flash drive to make up for anything it doesn't have.

Anyway, for those keeping up with my personal life, I guess things are going all right. I'm feeling a bit more optimistic than I was in my last post, and I'm not dreading school quite as much as I was before. It helps that I just got a nice-sized scholarship check in the mail. It's enough that I can pay off my credit card debt, buy my cheap laptop, and possibly go to NYC to see Equus in January! :D Now I just need to come up with a good cover story that does not involve Daniel Radcliffe's naked body, and I'm good to go.

I'm up to the end of season 3 of House. I think I get the last disc in the mail this afternoon. I cannot express how much I love this show. Also, I totally ship Chase/Cameron. I do not know what is wrong with me. It's canon (!), het (!!), and very fangirly in nature. But it's okay, I ship House/Wilson too! That makes up for something, doesn't it?

Also, I have fallen completely and absolutely in love with Chase, and not just because he's hot as hell and has an Australian accent. I love the glimpses we've gotten of his past, with seminary and his wild childhood (and possibly some BDSM!) and his dad. I also love how he goes along with everything House says and looks out for his job and is sometimes selfish and apathetic. I mostly love his spiritual struggles and how they're sometimes at odds with his methods and actions. I also love that he's so natural with children. There's nothing I hate more than people who try too hard to be good with kids. I think kids can sense when you're them or trying to put on a show or "get down on their level". Anyway, Chase doesn't seem to go out of his way to do any of that, which is nice. And yes, I realize he's a character and was written that way, but I can still appreciate it.

Anyway, Chase/Cameron is a very pretty pairing, and very predictable I'm sure, but I don't care. I think I deserve to have one easy canon ship since all of my HP ships are slashy and decidedly not canon. :(

I have some other thoughts on House, but I don't think I really have time to get into them now, so I'll save them for another post.

Okay, the street is almost deflooded (but bah, why did I have to park where it's deepest?) so I'm going. I hope everyone's doing well, and I'll try to be better about commenting. I've been kind of busy and distracted this week, but hopefully once school starts up and I get into a better rhythm with my schedule, I'll be able to focus a bit better.
