I know, I know. A month ago I was so-not-excited about my birthday. But that quickly changed.

Partially, I was all hyper and happy because I just landed two part-time jobs within two weeks of each other. And that is yay! I'm taking time off school and just working for now, 'cause I need the money and the exp and a better looking CV. And, jobs, yay, I like them.

So, yeah, despite my body doing strange and mean things and making me worry, things were on the up. And, hello, birthday, that's a thing to CELEBRATE!

And I have. Started with a parcel arriving from Mum on Friday with all sorts of lovely little goodies like stripey socks, lacy undies, and Amy Brown art, and little knick knacks. Carried on to Saturday, with lunch at the cafe at work with Dad and Suzy (I got to see Buddy and Truffles, the cute little things) and warning them of the pregnancy possibility...

Then, 8 pm, Blades of Glory. *dies* [livejournal.com profile] abrandnewboom? Everything you said. :D I loved it. Jon Heder was so pretty. Although he had only a short spot, I adore William Fichtner. And, and... yeah. I liked it a lot. I'm soooo tempted to go see it a second time. But I also kinda want to see Transformers, and maybe OotP. We'll see. I actually dreamed went and saw Transformers, and man did that fuck with my mind.

Um, oh, yeah. Sunday, my birthday. I worked. BUT THIS WAS OKAY. For one thing, I kept telling everyone and they said happy birthday all the time. Then there was the sausage sizzle guys, who remembered me telling them last weekend that Sunday was my birthday, and they put a candle in my sausage! *giggles* It melted a little.

A random customer, upon hearing it was my birthday, bought me a card and wrote inside, "To a very special young lady, Happy Birthday. Have a coffee on me." And gave my $5. How fucking sweet is that?!

Iain, Dad, and Suzy showed up late afternoon... Iain's leaving for Japan soon to teach English for a year, hence why Dad and Suzy came down. And they left some stuff of mine and Iain's at my place, but came to see me and give me more presents and cake.

CAKE. I haven't had a birthday cake in years. It's delicious, and all sorts of pretty with scrolly chocolate mousse and little candy roses. Black forest cake. MMM.

Presents... $50 Whitcoulls voucher (I bought the Long Way Round Special Edition set with it) from Dad and Suzy (also my bike earlier this year, it's my big present for like... the next few big celebrations), The Alchemist from Iain, which I've yet to start reading... and a fold-out mirror from a family friend, Catherine.

My parcel from Andrea arrived sometime over the weekend and I got it yesterday. Yay! Black moleskin pants, "Bitch Pills" and other cute knick knacks.

Mum called me last night, and we chatted. OH! I told her about the pregnancy scare, but I'm not pregnant, because, well, my body's birthday gift to me was the absolute knowledge in the form of, well, y'know. *looks down* Told Dad and Suzy when they stopped by on my birthday as well. Everyone's happy. It's all good.

It's been a very sweet, very awesome birthday.

Now, I'm going to see what the f-list has been up to. And read more fic by [livejournal.com profile] ashinae and [livejournal.com profile] linden_jay in my position as "pre-beta beta" *grins*

Okay, so I'll admit the pairing of Beckett/Lorne hadn't really crossed my mind, until certain recent developments thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ashinae. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find much fic involving this pairing. In fact, a couple hits over at Wraithbait (nothing special about them), and three fics by [livejournal.com profile] inkscribe, The Thing About Sunday (A Sunday fix), and it's sorta sequel Pict Nae Scot which truly delves into the Beckett/Lorne mentioned in the first fic. And then there's Word Gets Around which is all sorts of eerie darkfic inpsired by several other rather amazing fics (although I can't quite bring myself to read the Human Condition ones, because Carson/Michael scares me). Anyway, I just... can we get some more Beckett/Lorne fic out there, mmm?

How do you stop a man from drowning?
Take your foot off his head.

How do you stop a man from spitting?

What does it mean when the man in your bed is gasping for breath and calling your name?
You didn't hold the pillow down long enough.

Recently I paid a visit to Urban Dictionary because I was confused as to what "YMMV" meant. And then I threw in a couple other words just to see what the defintion was, if there was one. One of them was "Metallicar" which is the fan-assigned name of the oh-so-lovely car Sam and Dean have in Supernatural. I was amused about part of the definition, concerning real fangirls and the episode "Devil's Trap" (that I haven't seen, but I know about), what was this:

*After the ending of Devil's Trap*

FakeDitzyFangirl 1: Ahhhh! Sam!
FakeDitzyFangirl 2: Ahhhh! Dean!
RealFangirl 3: Noooooooo! The Metallicar

I suspect I belong to category 3, because we all know what is important and irreplaceable. *nods*

...Dude, I think a rat is setting up shop in my flatmate's closet. I heard scratching and I'm sure it was the pitter patter of not so small claws of a rat, as opposed to a wee mousie. But I didn't see anything, so I can't be sure.

And yet more links:
Truth Surprises -Actually, the thud was kinda fun, as long as the impact left you conscious. Sheppard/Beckett porn.

Not Going Anywhere -John wakes up, and he can't see, or hear. He tries not to panic, and there are those there to help him.

Running on Empty -John and Rodney are implanted with Wraith trackers and placed separately on an alien world to act as runners for the Wraith's amusement. As the story switches between John and Rodney we see a John who doesn't remember anything about who he is but still deals with his problems in a very John way and a panicked Rodney who is all too aware of his own abilities and lack thereof.

Long Road Home -"Great, now I'm on a first-name basis with illegal aliens," McKay groaned. "I am officially the worst border agent ever." An illegal immigrant, an emotionally and physically damaged veteran, and a border patrol agent who hates his job... maybe they were destined to be friends in any universe.

xans: Xans (Rock On)
[Sam and Dean are posing as potential homeowners]
Lynda Bloome: Well, let me just say that we accept homeowners of any race, religion, color or...
[looks at Sam and Dean]
Lynda Bloome: sexual orientation.
Dean Winchester: Hmm, right.
[to Sam]
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.

"There's leftover fish and chips from last night," Suzy said, as a possibility for my dinner tonight--she and Dad are having dinner over at Eileen's, and I'm on my own for a meal, again.

I barely stifled a smirk as I replied, "Uh, no, I had the fish and some of the chips for lunch."

A series of "Good," "That's very good," and whatnot came from both sets of parents. I felt like a dog being rewarded with praise for good behaviour, and said as much. "Do I get a pat on the head too?" I asked jokingly.

Of course, Dad took me at my word and started patting my head, not too gently, before patting the side of my face as well. When he did that, I turned and stuck my tongue out--I didn't really want to taste salty palm, but it grossed him out sufficiently that perhaps he'll remember not to do that again.

Also, let's see... Bones. Dude, Booth? Rebecca and Cam in a handful of days. Kind of want to cheer him on, at the same time, kind of want to roll my eyes at him. Loving the Angela/Hodgins flirtations. Still would love to see a fic where Zach pwns everyone. And I don't usually go for pwnage.

Um, and, Heroes? Seriously thinking of Petrellicest, because, ha, like being brothers ever stopped anyone. Or in conclusion, cousins, either.

Also, cannot believe I'm actually kinda losing my passion for House. It's not like it's not a good show. But, seriously, it's just not drawing me in like it used to. I don't know. I'll probably still keep watching it anyhow.

Still need to look into SPN, which I know we get, and Dresden Files, which I don't know if we get, but have been told by my mother that it's my kinda show. 'Cause, like, I totally need more fandoms. And brothercest shipping.

To all the people who are bitter about having no one for Valentines:

Shut up.

To all the people who DO have some special to celebrat Valentines:

I hope you romance the pants out of each other, and not just today.

As for me? Um, well, the 14th was yesterday, really. *cough* And I really couldn't care less. I never was one for celebrating all out. BUT thank you to the people who have wished me a happy Valentines and all that.

...someone remind me not to pick the cats up when I'm wearing a white top, less I know where the hell the lint brush is. *picks innefectively at cathairs*

Also, Poptarts In Atlantis. A popslash/Atlantis crossover. Weird, but funny. And some nice slashy sex, too.

1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

(Nearest book to my right) Invitations to Responsibility --Alan Jenkins
I avoid using terms such as "fondling" and "interfering" which can serve to detract from the seriousness of the abuse and the extent of the man's facing up:
It takes a lot of courage to face up to the fact that you sexually abused your stepdaughter. Most men can't face it and cop out pretending that nothing happened.

(Nearest book to my left) We of the Never-Never --Mrs Æneas Gunn
But the home-making instinct is strong in a woman, and the musterers went out west without the missus. The Dandy being back at the Bitter Springs superintending the carting of new posts for the stockyard there, the missus was left in the care of Johnny and Cheon.
"Now we shan't be long," said Johnny, and Cheon, believing him, expressed great admiration for Johnny, and superintended the scrubbing of the walls, while I sat and sewed, yard after yard of over sewing, as never woman sewed before.

Being in Dad's office, I've books to my left, books to my right, and books behind me, as well. I sorta had a grand choice, so I went for the first I spotted either side of me that had the prerequisite 123 pages or so. And, hell, I thought it was interesting, if rather random.

Chibi Seme
Chibi Seme
Take Are you a Seme or an Uke? today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You are the seme in disguise. Able to fit in and get along with uke and seme alike, you are able to get close to the uke on their level before exerting your dominance. This makes you at times manipulative and able to fool others about your true seme nature. Because of your harmless appearance, it takes the flamboyantly gay Flaming Uke to really bring out your aggressive side and expose you for the seme that you are.

No, I don't know what I'm doing.

Because there's just a handful of them, I'm not bothering with a cut for these Daniel Jackson icons. *nods*

And thus ends this rather Stargate and Daniel heavy post, mostly made for the sake of [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t than anyone else, not that you're not allowed to enjoy it, too. If that is your desire. :)

The Invisible Library

Which is so totally cool.

Also, because I keep forgetting: When I was at [livejournal.com profile] pandoras_evil_t's before, and we were watching vids... caught an old taped episode of Star Trek Voyager. "Infinite Regress" I think the name was. Anywho, there was totally a Seven of Nine/B'Elanna Torres femmeslash moment. And a little bit of Seven/Tuvok, but mostly Seven/B'Elanna. Left me and Ange very amused.

Rofl... I go looking for information on the Orange-kneed tarantula, and I get links to CSI Gil/Nick slash. Crazy.

Lord von Kummer says: I have a Spider (the SDR-5V, with the two m. lasers) in my lance, and the pilot's name is Qtischa, after your old character. Name's spelled a bit different for originality's sake, but I hope you approve.
He's referring to my Vampire: the Masquerade character, Titia Morven. I've been talking to Matt a lot these last few days, and it's always good to talk to him. We talk about such nerdy topics, and sometimes expand into flowery language or go off into some improv role-playing, but it's never, ever dull.
Lord von Kummer says: I could design you a quad legged 'mech...
We just constructed some mech to my specifications for the hell of it. Not to mention Qtischa's Spider, called the Nightwidow. She's got Clan tech, ferro-fibe armor, endosteel, double heat sinks, and 3 ER medium lasers. (Are you lost? Hahaha. I told you it's nerdy.) Really nerdy.
Lord von Kummer says: The 'mech is now the ORK-H1 Orange-Knee 45 ton quadramech.

"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."
--James D. Nicoll

Some girl in the lab heard me talking to Rodolfo and came over to ask if I was American, which I answered honestly that I'm not, but I had been living there. Anyway, all she wanted to know was if Portland was a state, and I so I said, "No, it's a city. A couple cities actually..." and I thought of [livejournal.com profile] wytch_sansmerci and [livejournal.com profile] peaseblossom03.

House is on tonight, yay! (I'm sorry if this entry is random)

Jareth pics--for my own reference, really...

Edit: Georgia Nicolson icons that are quite possibly tres bon and fabitty fab fab. Squee!
Edit2: Switched in two new icons now, including this one:

then you should cease asking scary questions.
Not that any of the questions I was asked over at CoE were scary. Nor should my answers be that squicky. And here goes nothing... )

I was sitting down and writing a fic for [livejournal.com profile] rose_whispers today. At least starting on it. She is doing one of those meme things where she'll write a fic of a given pairing/genre/cliche. Since others seemed to be offereing fics/art in return, I made a tentative offer to try writing something as well. Thus, I thought I'd take a twist on something I once wrote out of boredom between classes a year or two ago. And there I was, writing, when a completely unrelated plot bunny leaped up and bit me on the ass, demanding to be written nownownow. So I wrote it. I worked on it, and I'm mostly happy with it. But I don't want to post it yet. Would kinda like to get someone to do a quick beta of it... *plots*

[Edit:] Oh hell, I went and posted it anyway over at [livejournal.com profile] weasleys_wood. It's all right, I suppose.

I also wanted to rec [livejournal.com profile] weaslebicons... just have a gaz at these:
Thewlis icon I want to fuck Sid that's doable too J/R/S action = yum! For the Snupiners
The coffee ship icons are cool. And of course I had to ask that she make a Percy/Oliver one, just as I'm hoping [livejournal.com profile] grrliz_icons will make a Percy/Oliver icon to the Baskin Robin's flavour icons she's been making. (I recommend checking those out, too, yes!)

2. "It wasn't Heaven, Mooney..." He didn't sound like himself, his voice little and shrunken. Sirius Black had a voice for shouting, not this, never this, his fingers plucking at the edges of the sheet. "It was cold and dark and quiet."

“I don’t think he would ever stop laughing at me.”

-Courting Severus Snape Remus/Severus by [livejournal.com profile] firefly_quill
5. He was a shy boy, a quiet boy, a smart and studious boy. He liked potions and he liked keeping to himself and he liked the colour black and he liked other boys' bums but shh, that's a secret.
-Crazy Little Thing Remus/Severus by [livejournal.com profile] ashinae

Sitting next to Donald in the computer labs, chatting with him on MSN as we use his headphones to listen to Cher on Swiss radio. Oh, wait, switching the headphones back to the discman to listen to Aerosmith and various others. He didn't think I wanted to hear the news in German. *shrugs* Whatever. It's midnight and we're sort of happy that finally the lab is down to perhaps eight people.
So glad I have no classes in the morning tomorrow. Can sleep in. Yay! (doesn't help me get back in the routine, but hey)

It's okay if you don't make any comparisons for fandoms you don't belong to. Or don't know anything about, at any rate.

:( Absolutely everyone on my contacts list was offline. Usually there's at least one, even if he or she is in (away) status. Not even one of those, for once. It was kinda lonely. There's a couple names there now, though. Mind you, MSN has seemed pretty dead, late. Except yesterday, when I had four people chatting with me at the same time. it was weird. But cool, because I got Andrea playing bejewelled, heard from Biz that there's another book in the Sword of Truth series out, and about her creepy yet awesome dream featuring Lan, Richard, and Zed, heard about the shnappi song thing from Gino, and spoke to dad.
Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] peaseblossom03, for posting the link to this. It's in my memories now.

Tomorrow I am going over to Andrea's to watch Pirates of the Caribbean with her and Anita. Anita has never seen it before. I'm definitely in the mood to see it again. Wonderful movie.
I ripped a bunch of songs off my CDs onto Iain's comp. He had 11.5 GBs of music. 7.1 days worth, if you listened to each song all that way through, nonstop. He now has closer to 13 GBs of music. 7.7 days. But it's all for a good cause. He's given me lots of music in the past. Only time I returned the favor. The only thing I hate about the fact he has over 2600 songs is that it's bloody hard to find the right one if it doesn't have full details, OR I can't remember the song title or artist. Even with the search feature. Ah, well.
Was supposed to buy cutlery today. Haha, that didn't happen.
Hardest bloody time waking up this morning. But then, I went to bed at eleven something or other and hadn't taken any naps to catch up on sleep lost the night before last. And likely I won't have an early night tonight, either.
