1) Caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals; idealistic without regard to practicality.
2) Capricious; impulsive: “At worst his scruples must have been quixotic, not malicious" (Louis Auchincloss).
adj : not sensible about practical matters; unrealistic; "as quixotic as a restoration of medieval knighthood"; "a romantic disregard for money"; "a wild-eyed dream of a world state"
Today, I AM DON QUIXOTE. I will hear no back talk.
So like, this is pretty amazing. Nearly a year after Hurricane Katrina, I HAVE AN APARTMENT AGAIN! (I do not count my exile among the Houstonians.) It's exciting. And once I get my shoji screens I will be living large, living off the fat of the land. Yhurd?
Uh, if anyone reads this who'd be interested and doesn't know yet, I have indeed created my livejournal community dealing with apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic everything, mostly books and movies...so if you haven't joined yet, get up on it...diluvium_ignis...we actually READ books and TALK about them! Isn't that cool? And if you don't care, you probably know someone out in LJ land who might.
I've been busting my brain on this Japanese language, Nihongo, again. I got my TESL/ESL certification and all I have to do is wave my pinky through the air and supposedly they find me a job when I want one. But I will not be ready until I can say, "I'm riding the bus down a street in Shinjuku." And write it. Which is much harder. Let's see...Boku wa...basu ni...unten shite, wait no that's driving...tori...Shinjuku...jisho wa doko desu ka? I'm embarrassing myself. If only all of you could have heard my supe-chi about preparing tofu last Saturday though, that was awesome. And I got a Starbucks gift card for it too. No trophy though :[
Let's see...what else? So much, so much. I DJed at a club night in Long Beach called Sacrilege, that was fun, many people danced to my whole set. I will most likely be spinning at some other venues too sooner or later.
God, SITD is sad. Though my electronica tastes have shifted more to the screamy harsh terror EBM stuff (like the new Tactical Sekt which I BARELY managed to get the limited edition double CD set of), I have favored some new synthpop I've been hearing. Syrian, Conetik, Les Anges de la Nuit are all super cool. You should have seen those crazy fools dance to Cold Star! w00t Everyone says that Conetik sounds just like Covenant, but I think only Cold Star really does. What can you do? Good tanz muzak is good tanz muzak. Besides, isn't Covenant like electroclash now or something? Just kidding. I like the new album ok.
I read a great book that I can't really talk about on diluvium_ignis because it's so not really the theme, though it is about the fall and end of an age...
take a peek.
I now reluctantly go back to my paper pushing. Pray that no Amazon breaks my heart and neck.
And no bitching about no cut tags. I never post on here and it was long overdue.
