21JS - wordless


God, why am I watching Murder on Spike TV? It makes me seethe with anger at stupid ppl. And remember my ten-day forensics camp at GWU, which just makes me seethe at stupidity even more. I mean, by the time we made it to the mock crime scene, I was just so tired of the idiots I didn't even bother pretending that the scene was supposed to be real.

Not to mention the fact that my role was relegated to moving Q-tips over red paint, pretending I had collected some blood, and then putting the Q-tip in a paper bag and writing what it supposedly was. Seriously. That's all I did. And everybody else was far too busy with their 'important' jobs to bother telling anyone else what they had found/thought they found/knew was happening. So I was left with the vague impression that there were a few bodies, and something I overheard was that a gardener had found them? Or something? I love that the instructor thought I was supposed to take vague, overheard information and what I managed to see before getting pushed out of the way, and put it together to figure out the killer. I think I might have taken a nap during our 'say whodunnit' meeting (well, as much as I could, given that the three 'leaders' of the investigation were idiots and couldn't make anyone listen to them, so it was just a group of 20 teenagers bickering and whining at each other).

Although, this IS very realistic. In any group of untrained people investigating a mock crime scene, there's always the one guy who thinks it's a murder/suicide, whatever the evidence to the contrary. I mean, there was one in our group, even though there weren't any weapons left at the scene, just casings.

Okay, I must calm down. I have resigned myself to not going into law enforcement, this also means that I cannot rage at others for being stupid in such areas. BUT I WANT TO. (Also, this is making me want to find some casefile fics, and mock them. But I'll resist the urge. I'll also try to resist the urge to look into law enforcement/crime scene positions in the UK, because I've had enough of random internet searches, damn it!)

SS - X-rays not polaroids

Brad Paisley - "Online"

I work down at the Pizza Pit
And I drive an old Hyundai
I still live with my mom and dad
I'm 5 foot 3 and overweight
I'm a sci-fi fanatic
A mild asthmatic
And I've never been to second base
But there's whole ‘nother me
That you need to see
Go checkout MySpace

'Cause online I'm out in Hollywood
I'm 6 foot 5 and I look damn good
I drive a Maserati
I'm a black-belt in karate
And I love a good glass of wine
It turns girls on that I’m mysterious
I tell them I don't want nothing serious
'Cause even on a slow day
I could have a three way
Chat with two women at one time
I’m so much cooler online
So much cooler online

When I get home I kiss my mom
And she fixes me a snack
And I head down to my basement bedroom
And fire up my Mac
In real life the only time I’ve ever even been to L.A
Is when I got the chance with the marching band
To play tuba in the Rose Parade

Online I live in Malibu
I pose for Calvin Klein, I've been in GQ
I'm single and I'm rich
And I've got a set of six pack abs that would blow your mind
