Please excuse the googly eye, these were taken before she was better. I should get some new ones for you, I suppose. But she's still a little, little thing.

The good news: two possible jobs to choose from.

The bad news: Plans to see Blades of Glory put on hold, as I had a doctor's visit to make yesterday. TMI(ish) concernting my stupid body )

In other news, I might--might--have some photos for you guys to check out, soon. Maybe. If he gets his shit together and I think they're actually worth sharing. We'll see. Hopefully.

Dodgeball was on last night, and I laughed like a loon. Then I got to watch Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip which is a rather cool show, actually. Thursday nights are becoming my late nights, it seems.

xans: Xans (Seabeck Hicks)

Now, there are some pretty damn funny macros out there. But sometimes, a cute picture is a cute picture without adding words.

[livejournal.com profile] pandoras_closet linked to "When March of the Penguins Attacks". There are no words. *watches and cackles*

Last night I could not seem to sleep for more than a couple of hours before waking myself up. I'd be happily in dreamland, or in that state of flowing consciousness where I think I'm still awake until I wake up and lose track of what I was thinking, and then suddenly I'd be wide awake. No bad dreams or loud noises to wake me up. Just... awake. But then I managed to sleep in this morning anyway.

Um, anyway, I was an idiot when I went out, found this awesome page of fanfic recs, and promptly lost it again. In fact, there were two that I haven't the slightest clue where to find them again, and it sucks because there was some shiny links there. Still, I got a few more that I've been meaning to link to...

A Beautiful Lifetime Event -[livejournal.com profile] astolat/shalott
John stared in horror: the thing was growing. Every one of the blobs swelling up, and then slowly and inevitably splitting in two, and then those both started getting bigger -- "Look, isn't there -- can't you turn it off?"

Excuse me?" Beckett turned and glared at him.

John glared right back, furious, wanting to
shake Beckett -- "This is an accident with Ancient technology, not a beautiful lifetime event! I want a goddamn morning-after pill!"

John and Rodney accidentally make a baby. No mpreg, thank goodness. I forget where I first found the link to this. And damn was I leery, what with it being a kid!fic and McShep, neither of which I really care for, and yet I find myself drawn in anyway. It's really quite sweet, especially since John and Rodney don't really "get together" until late in the story, when they've already made the kid and all sorts of things have happened.

Life Lessons Learned From Aliens -[livejournal.com profile] eleveninches
When he left by himself a few minutes later, it was in outrage. He'd been hoping for something funny, or at least something he could use against them, but everyone -- literally everyone -- in the control room was in love with the same person: Elizabeth. That was so predictable. Zelenka loved Ronon, Ronon loved pancakes, he loved (supposedly loved) Sheppard, but everyone else had a thing for the boss.

An Ancient device which reveals a person's One True Love. Rodney is sure it's broken. Also, another device is discovered to see what other people see as their One True Love. It's funny, because the boys are in denial, and Ronon's true love is pancakes, and for once it wasn't Sheppard who touched something he shouldn't have.

Missed the Saturday Dance -[livejournal.com profile] zoetrope

This, this is an amazing piece of work. It's an AU, where John Sheppard is a test pilot in WWII and Rodney McKay is a genius engineer of said test planes... and it's a mix of medias. There's two audio clips, a movie trailer, as well as the fic which comes to us as pictures, an exchange of letters as well as scenes from their lives together. Amazing work. Really.

The Numbers -[livejournal.com profile] trinityofone
For a second he's completely convinced that they're writing to apologize. Dear John Sheppard, we have made a grievous mistake. Our doctor was a moron and you are not, in fact, colorblind. We would like to take you on as soon as possible and in fact have several F-16s specially picked out. Would a starting rank of Colonel be agreeable to you? Sincerely, the U.S. Air Force. Then he realizes how ridiculous this is and has to take several deep breaths to keep from being sick.

MENSA 'verse. That is, the 'verse with "Rod" from "McKay and Mrs. Miller" only this is about the John Sheppard there, and his part in Atlantis without being in the Air Force.

The Roads Never Lead Where They're Supposed to Go -[livejournal.com profile] eleveninches
"Zelenka," Rodney demanded, "why are there botanists in my lab?"

"Dr Sheppard was the one to discover the transporters, completely by accident," Zelenka said, like that was supposed to mean something. He clasped Sheppard's shoulder, and Sheppard smirked at Rodney again.

Rodney waited for more of an explanation. When it didn't come, he asked, "So? Is that supposed to impress me? What the hell are transporters?" Both Zelenka and Sheppard looked at him in surprise. "What? I'm not allowed to leave this floor, except to eat and occasionally sleep. Personally, I think Sumner feels threatened by me. You blow up one star, and suddenly everyone thinks you're a loose cannon."

-Another AU where Shappard is a civillian, and a botanist at that, and McKay isn't in charge... and a retake on a B-Grade sci-fi with much amusement for all.

When I was little, I used to have a crush on Shredder.

Yeah, him. And it wasn't anything to do with him being a villain or anything--I barely remember what his character was like. It's been years. No, I just remember having this sort of long-time pervy appreciation of his body.


I know. I'm weird. It's not like he's the only crush I've had on an animated character, either. There are others, like Poison Ivy or Fox (Hey. Redheads.) when I normally couldn't care less about womenfolk. (Elisa wasn't to shabby, either) There's James of Team Rocket (I know, Pokemon, wtf.) or Sage from Ronin Warriors (Or Rowen, Anubis or Dais...). Puck.

Never entirely sure what makes me get a crush on a particular character, either. Because neither Donatello or Brooklyn would win any beauty contests, but I still adore them too. Sometimes it's an aesthetic thing, sometimes it's the voice, and sometimes it's the personality of the character, but any of those can lead me to crush on someone who is not only fictional but usually two-dimensional.

Karai is a bit of an exception to that 2-D rule. Heh. I don't even like the new TMNT movie much, but she fascinates me liek whoa.

*is totally weird*

A Bear Venture )

xans: Xans (Charming)
One of the advantages of a flatmate who moonlights as a photographer is getting to borrow his camera...and getting him to take pictures of me for your enjoyment. :)

Several years ago my brother had the grand idea to send me this little red plastic bear. I fell in love with him immediately, and named him Charlie Bear. (Coincidentally, around the same time, a hurricane showed up and its name was Charlie, too, but I had nothing to do with that.) It's been my goal since then to acquire more of these bears, and this Christmas, [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t indulged in my budding collectiong by purchasing me another bear... I named him Nano Bear. This weekend I finally got some pictures of them together, a vast improvement on the blurry ones of Charlie from years back with my cheapo digital cam...

So there were pictures )

I also wanted some pictures of me, because I know I haven't posted any in a while. Yes, I straightened my hair again. The tank top is one of several I got for Christmas from my mum. Perhaps this weekend I can persuade my flatmate to take more pictures, and earlier in the day when the lighting is better. Maybe. If the weather holds.

And maybe I am all sorts of pretty, and my tummy is sexy )

In other news, no internets for the time being, beyond when I can snatch an hour or two at school. Don't know when it will be back up. I'll try to keep up with the happenings on my f-list, really, I will. Don't go beserk or anything, though, yeah?


Edit: Everyone else is doing it, so why not me?

xans: Xans (Inner Squint)
A few things, in no particular order:

1.) The menstrual cycle is a curse: you curse it if it comes, and your curse it if it doesn't. Currently cursing it for coming, although I'm also grateful that everything is in working order, and I haven't gone and got myself knocked up. That would lead to all sorts of unpleasant business we don't need.

2.) He says I have a sexy tummy. It makes me laugh. But then I love it when he runs his hands across my belly and along my lower back. Tickling--or trying to--is so not on, however.

3.) I possibly drink too much coffee.

4.) I ate a tuna sandwich yesterday, and it didn't kill me. I still don't really like tuna, though. I'd say it's on the same level of distaste as mushrooms, but not as much as beetroot or eggplant/aubergine. Or absolute loathing like for sheep's kindeys.

5.) Danny Messer/Carmine Giovinazzo is all sorts of pretty:
See what I mean? )

6.) I have a mini moro bar sitting next to me, and I am too full to eat it. Le shock, horror!

7.) I've been really comment happy lately, having something to say, or sometimes not having something to say, but commenting anyway, particularly because of...

8.) [livejournal.com profile] nest_of_spiders, a new comm pimped to me by [livejournal.com profile] such_heights. They post prompts daily for the month of April. "The community is open to all characters and pairings (slash, het, gen) from the First War/Marauders' Era of Harry Potter (approximately 1970-1981)." The reponse to prompts has been simply amazing, and I've felt inclined to leave comments as I've yet to be inspired to write fic myself.

9.) I'm much too prideful for the teensy little bit of help I gave [livejournal.com profile] ashinae on her Nathan/Peter fic, Nothing So Complicated. It's all sorts of wrongness, but I still love it. Hee.

10.) Have a Happy Easter everyone! (Whether you celebrate it or not. Hope your weekend is grand, anyhow.)

We won't even go into the rest of the comedy gold going on in that metaquotes entry. Just... hee!

Seriously, is there something about Easter and Jesus' Undead Shindig, or what, that brings out End-of-the-World vibes? I mean, firstly, there's Black Sheep coming out, uhh, tomorrow, and don't make me repeat the Multi-Fandom challenge I mentioned in my last post, and, oh, someone on my f-list chose to point out World War Z right about now... And also, May bring us 28 Weeks Later 'cause Lord knows that movie needs a sequel with, like, none of the original characters... Yeah.

Completely unrelated, although the Red Eyes might deceive you, [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t posted a handful of pictures from her 21st, including a couple of me (and thus, the only important ones :P) so I figured I'd share. Hopefully she'll get a hold of more and we can sit back and admire them, too. We don't actually have any pictures of being out on the town, just ones from dinner... but hey. It was a grand time. *snerk* Photographic evidence of selling my panties would have been hilarious, now that I think about it.

Lookit! All prettified )

...Andrea makes me look tanned. *laughs*

In a bid for more linkage... I decided to go looking for CSI: NY fanfic that was Danny-centric, but non-shippy. I found a few, before I got overwhelmed and beat a hasty retreat. But there's one I read, about Danny and Flack set between Seasons 2 & 3, called Brothers and Sisters (Everything I Can't Remember). There's a second, third, & fourth part, as well. And man... I try not to cry over fics. Sometimes I can't stop tears welling up and letting one or two loose. *shakes head* This fic had me damn near bawling by the end. I liked it a lot, though.

...and now I'll get back to betaing a fic for [livejournal.com profile] ashinae.

Dean Winchester: I'm gonna go talk to Larry. Okay, honey?
[slaps Sam on the ass]

Given that, well, this was the second person to feed them that line... *giggles* Also, I don't think I'm supposed to laugh at Sam when he's angsting, but laugh I did. :D

Happy St. Patrick's Day, btw.

Finally seeing an episode of Stargate SG-1 with Teal'c having hair, and Cam, and Vala, and General Landry... all of whom I've only heard about, rather than actually seeing any episodes with them before. I'm not sure if I like them so much. I probably need to see more eps before they grow on me. *stares at TV* Okay, maybe I rather like Vala. *grins*

Anyway... feeling cold and like nesting. Grand.

So I just had to look up screencaps for the episode "Consequences" when I caught this glimpse of Flack making this oh-so-sweet smile... and then I discovered some other expressions he made that left me giggling. 'Cause I'm a loon.

Hi, my name is Flack, and I make funny faces )

xans: Xans ("Oh Snap!")
OH THE BEEMANITY *dies* Oh, this is such a thing of beauty. I cannot help but giggle every time I look through it again. Hee.

In other news, um, several months back I left a post for that Five Things meme, and, while I did most of the prompts, there's a couple I didn't. *wince*

From [livejournal.com profile] d_e_l_i_r_i_u_m (my god that's a pain to type out, darlin'), who was just messing with me, I got these two prompts...

HP/Sandman crossover )

Discworld )

And from [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t (who is rather ill, I'm so very sorry sweetie), I got this one...

House MD )

Once again, I'm asking for prompts, picking from common fandoms which you can find listed on my info page. I make no promises of actually writing them, but I can't say I won't try.

You post a couple of five things topics, lists, categories, whatever, in my comments section. (examples: "Five Phrases Batman Will Never Say", or "Five Things Dean Will Never, Ever Tell Sam", or "Five Times That Jeeves Was Caught Unprepared") Then, in a separate post, eventually, I'll post the answers to some of your Top 5 ideas, according to me. Serious or fun! Then you post this offer in your own journal, if the mood takes you.

The other meme, if you feel like it, is to post a fandom and five words, and I'll try to write a drabble about it.

xans: Xans (Hee!)
There was this billboard for Waikato draft, the one by the Wharehouse in Hilcrest, and it was really strange when I took a moment to actually read it. One side says: "Honking the horn," and in smaller text, "Our courting." It took me a little thinking to get it, but, sadly, it is true. I go for walks often, and, particularly when I'm dressed nice, but even when I'm not, there is many a time when I get honked at by some passing car. Because our boys don't seem to have ever seen women before, or something.

Anyway, I just got emailed this in a fwd from my mum:

So, since about...Christmas? Or slightly before mebbe, anyway, [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t & [livejournal.com profile] the_chief_80 have been slowly buying up each season of Stargate SG-1. They own up to Season 6 now. And we've been watching them, and enjoying them immensely. For whatever reason, though, our watching of Season 6 seems to have passed so much more quickly than previous seasons. Not sure how/why this is. Time is relative, I guess.

Anywho, watching some of the special features included "The Lowdown" which was the Sci-Fi channel special type thing that came out just before Season 7 started up. It was quite fun to watch. Ange and I both "oooh"ed when we saw Amanda Tapping has her bellybutton pierced. That is just all kinds of hotness.

Need to find myself a couple fic links I may have lost. Shit.

Ah, well.

Wesley Crusher: [to Riker] What should I say? How do I act? What do I do?
Commander William T. Riker: Guinan, I need your help. Could you step over here a minute?
Guinan: Sounds simple enough.
Riker: [to Wesley] Now, first words out of your mouth are the most important. You may want to start with something like this.
[to Guinan]
Riker: You are the most beautiful woman in the galaxy...
[to Wesley]
Riker: But that might not work.
Guinan: Yes! Yes, it would.
Riker: [to Guinan] You don't know how long I've wanted to tell you that.
Guinan: But you were afraid.
Riker: Yes.
Guinan: Of me?
Riker: Of us. Of what we might become...
[Wesley tries to interrupt]
Riker: ...or that you might think that was a line.
Guinan: Maybe I do think it's a line.
Riker: Then you think I'm not sincere.
Guinan: I didn't say that. There's nothing wrong with a line. It's like a knock at the door.
Riker: Then you're inviting me in.
Guinan: I'm not sending you away.
Riker: That's more than I expected.
Guinan: Is it as much as you hoped?
Riker: To hope is to recognize the possibility; I had only dreams.
Guinan: Dreams can be dangerous.
Riker: Not these dreams. I dream of a galaxy where your eyes are the stars and the universe worships the night.
Guinan: Careful. Putting me on a pedestal so high, you may not be able to reach me.
Riker: Then I'll learn how to fly. You are the heart in my day and the soul in my night.
Wesley Crusher: [interrupting] I don't think this is my style.
Guinan: Shut up, kid!
[to Riker, saucily]
Guinan: Tell me more about my eyes.

Way back when I was a kid, Iain and Dad went off on some special Boy Scout trip away for the weekend. So, Mum and I went on a special girls only trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and there were llamas and hot air balloons and the whatsit cablecars that got up the mountain...I really liked them.

Llamas )

But I look back on my childhood and cringe...
-I had really big horrible glasses
-Hermione hair
-fussy eater
-demanding (although I didn't always get it, but man could I kick up a fuss) and whiny
-useless at making friends (and I got picked on a lot, although I've blocked most of it)

...to name a few not so pleasant parts about it all. Not to mention, I can't ever remember myself as a kid being nearl as charismatic as I am these days. Or pretty. I definitely got prettier once I got older. I wasn't even a cute kid. Not really.

xans: Xans (Mumbling)
I was telling [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t about this recently, hence, finally remembering to post it.
