Rainbow || Rainbow northern lights.


Genes and Chromosomes was really annoying.

My body was luring me with, "sleep, sleep, you'll like sleep..." and at the same time screaming, "YOU NEED TO MOVE LIEK RITE NOW, LULZ!" So I was nodding off and fidgeting everywhere and it was basically the most intensenly annoying hour of my life. About RNA transcription or whatever. Not hard to learn. Apparently these last weeks of the course are just to keep going over the other stuff to learn it better.

I am so not looking forward to practical. Practicals stink when wicked tired. Then I'll bring Melon back to my room so she can meet my brother and we can all be off to Chemistry to have Humans and the Changing World.

I think I'll end up falling asleep in that lecture too. I stink. Thankfully this is all stuff I can go through and read about. Somehow I still think it's better to show up. I do, strangely (it escapes me), seem to learn things regardless. My mind goes in and out of the material.

Blech. I can't wait for some proper sleep some time. It'll be brill.

And now Grey's before practical, so I can have some of my sanity, because my laptop's computer won't play sound and my brother's always on the computer/Internet anyway.

Grey's Rant

How do they DO that? How does this show take a character I like and in one episode make her an annoying Twit?

Spoilers. Yeah whatever. If you haven't seen Grey's Anatomy episode 16 season 5, don't read on. (But you're probably sensible and didn't watch the episode because you don't watch the show.)

For the past two weeks, for the show, I wanted Callie/Arizona screen time. Last week we got a cute scene with Callie expressing her new crush to Addison. I enjoyed the scene.

And then this week. Callie asks Arizona out. Fine, good. Makes a mention of the kiss-in-the-bar being the second surprise woman kiss. Arizona facefall. OK, fine, it can be a tiny bit of a downer to have thoughts about a woman being solidly lesbian turn out to be a new hatchling. But very surmountable. Then the ask out. Aaaand a flattered no. Sure, that happens, alright, people say no to dates. But the way Arizona did it? SO not in the realm of her character! I can understand not wanting to date the new and confused lesbian, maybe, if she's looking for a smooth-sailing relationship with a worn-in lesbian...not really my stance, but I have seen other long-out lesbians with the view. It's a common view. "Friend the newbie dyke, don't date." It's at least common if not reasonable. The way Arizona did it, to compare Callie to a newborn? To do it snarkily? "I spend my days around newborns. I don't want to spend my personal life with one" or whatever? That was not Arizona. First of all, mixed messages. If you're interested enough to kiss a stranger in a bar with little knowledge of the history, don't go wheeling full-speed away when it turns out HEY, this girl kissed in the bar may only have a few female kisses! But even if Arizona WASN'T comfortable with that and wanted to go skipping off with an experienced lesbian, I can't see her rejecting Callie the way it was done.

So I'm not really pleased at all. It's another lesbian stereotype. But this is Grey's, right? Home of zomggasp diversity but stereotypes aplenty? Real lesbian comes along and won't date the fledgling.

Eh, at least I've seen it. We'll see what happens next week. I don't want to go to practical. At least I get to read first.
