Are you Sirius?!  
So, this guy seems to think that he'd make a good young Sirius Black or James Potter for the movie version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Just click on the link; you won't be sorry. It's one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time, and I've been lurking over at Fandom_Wank (new guilty pleasure!) recently, so that's saying a lot.

I wrote two paragraphs of snark about it, but then decided that I was being mean, so I erased them. Anyway, the posting speaks for itself.

Sadly, I think he really is serious (but not Sirius). I did a related search that brought up a list his posting was included in, and most of them went something like this

Wow, that took energy to write! But anyway, sadly, I don't think the guy was joking. Which make it even funnier!

Theoretically, I'm working on a draft of my journal article so I can turn in a draft to my editor on Friday.

But obviously that's not working out so well. I banned myself from doing online fun stuff while getting ready for finals, so I think I'm making up for that. More importantly, I'll do pretty much anything to avoid working on my article. ;) I'm so, so, so sick of it.

Oh, that's right...you're DONE with your semester [/jealous]. What kind of journal do you write for? Well, I feel the exact same way--I've been doing everything to avoid working on my @#$%ing paper (and I can't believe it's almost 5:30 already--yipes!)! I hate writing academic research papers. I'd much rather be writing my fan fic. Oh, speaking of which, thank you so so much for the reviews. :) This is my first attempt at fiction writing, and I really have been appreciating people's feedback on it; it's very encouraging.

The next chapter does not contain a flashback to 1987. Just so you know. ;)

I'm writing for one of the law journals at school (I'm in law school). And this article has been the bane of my existence since August because I had one topic that didn't go anywhere, so I scrapped it and started over at a REALLY late stage, and THEN with the new topic I got preempted! @#$)(*#)$(# I'm just so pissed at the whole thing that I hate working on it now.

I'm shocked that Yellow is your first attempt at fiction writing... it seems WAY more advanced that that. Good job!

I'm actually going to give up on "writing my paper" tonight and go to sleep now... but good luck on your paper! You should maybe think about turning off your internet access... ;)

Law school...you're brave! That was my initial plan, and then I kinda didn't end up studying for the LSAT...never went to take it...and that was that!

Ugh, sounds like a nightmare with the article. And if it's got you in a bad mood, it'll just be that much harder to write. Smart move to go to bed. I'm not planning on sleeping at all. It kinda sucks, because I need to have my paper done by around noon (which I'm pretty sure will be fine), so that I can get ready to go to work...then after work, I have our office Christmas party to go to. I'll probably be completely delerious by the time I get there (I think the delerium is already hitting), which probably means no alcohol for me, or else I'll never make it home in one piece. Then I will collapse...and wake up at 6:30 the next morning because, like an idiot, I volunteered to substitute teach four hours' worth of other people's classes at work and then to teach my own two hours' worth. Oh yeah, and I have another paper due Monday. But that's OK, that's what Sunday night is for. ;)

Thanks again for the comment on "Yellow." :) Well, I did write some pretty horrible angsty poems about unrequited crushes back in 12th grade...:P

I think it's great! A person's gotta go for what he wants. Trying to get published is the same. You submit to big places, and keep trying until eventually it works.

The thing is, I dunno how much he really wants it. He's awfully casual about the whole thing. I'm starting to wonder if maybe it is a joke after all. No one who truly cares about the craft is so flippant. But then again, I got literally zero sleep last night, so I don't know if I am thinking straight at all!

It's great for a laugh, though!
