lotus0kid: (creative process)
Wow, I managed not to do a meme for over a month! Not that I was really trying not to- quite the opposite, actually, but still! Sometimes I get annoyed with myself, like I don't have anything to talk about, all I want to do is play silly lj games. But can I help it when they're so fun and interesting so often? No.

Anyway! From, most recently, [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket:

1.) Comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional characters.
2.) Decide of the 3 whom you would marry, do, and dump cliff.
3.) Post this meme to your journal with your answers.


DON'T JUDGE ME. )

Two for the price of one! I did this whole meme once a while ago, but it accidentally got deleted, so I half-way did it again later, but, well, it's really one of those memes that demand... I dunno, immediacy. It gets stale if you leave it alone and then you have to start all over. Anyway, for the third and final time, here's this, stolen aaages ago from [livejournal.com profile] hermione_vader:

1. Write down 20 of your favorite OTPs
2. Put your media player on shuffle. The number of the song corresponds to the number of the OTPs.
3. Quote a part of the song that you think has any similarity with the story of the couple.
4. Comment.


Some of them were so far off I had to try again. Some were so spot-on it was scary. )
lotus0kid: (Happy halloween from the party skull!)
Arrrgh this is starting to piss me off. Anybody remember a little bit ago me complaining about my stupid iPhone reading each file in my fanmix folders as a separate album, so I can't listen to, say, all of Modern Day Wooster or Lovenado, just one song at a time? I figured this was because the files were spread out into folders based on band/musician, so I went through and made folders for each album, got them all organized where they belong, and STILL on my phone's library there's a long line of albums with the same name and cover art and ONE track each. Except for My Love is Like a Spaceship actually, it worked for that more or less, but that's really more frustrating than encouraging because there's nothing at all different about that one than the others and GAH. My last idea is to make separate playlists out of all of them, but I really don't want to do that. Maybe I could make one big playlist of fanmixes, but then I'd never be able to shuffle just one album, should I wish to.

Anyway, I had more to talk about than just bemoaning my continuing disappointment in technology. While I was doing the thirty-day meme, I collected more memes! Oh yes! I'm still sitting on a couple big ones, but today's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5 caught my eye this morning:

Which 5 persons from any fandom would you place on a lonely island to get the most interesting reaction?

I decided my island would be populated by the most Machiavellian, corkscrew-brained, devious, manipulative, calculating, self-serving characters I could find- and a wild card. Slight spoilers for Dollhouse. )

I'm really getting into the Halloween spirit now. Quite unconsciously, after I finished re-reading Soon I Will Be Invincible, I started re-reading Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach. While I don't really like the implication that cadaver research should be linked with Halloween and all that, I'll admit it's hard not to at least a little, especially considering I've got I Sell the Dead coming in from Netflix tomorrow. After that it's Trick 'r Treat (highly recommended by the Adams of A Damn Movie Podcast), Day of the Dead, Rosemary's Baby, The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror, and Dog Soldiers. That last one, if you haven't seen it, definitely do- it's awesome, British, and does a very cool thing with the "trapped in a house surrounded by [supernatural being(s)]" trope more often seen in zombie movies.

Also, in actual physical activity, tomorrow I'm going to attempt the blood clot and brain cupcakes I came across- was it last year? [livejournal.com profile] zombres, did you link to that? Anyway, I was going to try it this afternoon, but I was tired from work (another day at the equipment yard- wheee I need to take a shower), and had to run out twice for the ingredients, and by the time I was ready to get started, I was also really hungry and just not into it enough. So, tomorrow morning it shall be! I'm kind of nervous about it- I've never even made cupcakes before, let alone ones with strawberry filling and buttercream icing. Anyway, this will be mostly a trial run- the recipe only makes eight cupcakes, so if they suck, at least I won't feel too bad throwing them away. And if they rock, hopefully they won't take too long to make, so I can whip some more up for other things. Like certain rallies, or carousing-type events. (@#!$%#@$^, I just realized I forgot to get the little tube thing to squeeze out the icing! *groans* Well, I've already done one Walk of Shame [or at least Overeager Baker Who Doesn't Check Her Supplies List to Make Sure She Has Everything Even After the Scare with the Little Paper Cupcake Holders] to the grocery store, I can do another tomorrow. They better friggin' have it, though.)

Also also, on Sunday [livejournal.com profile] fadeintodawn and I will bundle up for an outdoor version of Titus Andronicus. The local Shakespeare company does their shows in the ruins of an old girls school up in the hills of the historical part of town that have been semi-restored. For this one scenes will take place all over the ruins, not just on the stage that's set up in one area. So, that'll be neat. I've never seen the entire play, just clips of the Julie Taymor film version. Actually, I always think it's a good idea to read the summary of a Shakespeare play before going to see it just so even if the dialogue loses you you still know what's going on, so I read the one for Titus and oh my god! Jeepers, Shakespeare! If you think Hamlet/Othello/Macbeth/King Lear are bloodbaths, you have clearly not taken a glimpse of Titus Andronicus. All those other plays are goddamn dainty compared to it! I'm honestly a little nervous in a way. I mean, I don't know how far they're going to take it. Some of the stuff that happens in Titus is.. not easy to watch for anyone. I can handle gore pretty well, at least with a TV screen between me and it, but that screen won't be there this time. And there's more than gore. Oh well, you know, I know they set the audience age limit at fifteen (as in, fifteen and up), so, I kind of think that indicates they won't be taking it really far.

Man, what is better than a beautiful lazy Saturday morning after a long week of work and various running around? I've had my scrambled eggs, my bagel (half margarine, half Nutella- yummm), and now I've got a cup of the fantastic jasmine tea my sister sent up from Florida. I've got all three Sherlock episodes queued up for viewing, and I haven't quite decided if I'm going to attempt a beef stew today. Hm. Also, I finally caved and bought six months of paid lj time. So, uh, yay extra icons? Heh, that was really all I was interested in. I dunno, maybe I'll fiddle around with my layout.

Anyway, my creepy lj-lurking has found me a meme!

List the first five OTPs that come into your head.
1. Peter/Claude
2. Maj. West/Mirror!Wendy
3. Wash/Zoe
4. Alice/Hatter
5. Shawn/Lassiter


And answer some questions... )
lotus0kid: (Default)
(Ooh, the sky's doing that thing you only see in summer when everything gets tinged a really cool shade of pink/yellow/green. I love that.)

So, had a meeting with one of those temp agency guys today. We'll see if anything comes of that. I think it might, since I have a somewhat decent amount of experience now. The guy seemed fairly enthusiastic. Tomorrow I will definitely start looking at GRE study materials. I've been horrifically lazy to let it go this long. I will also go to the grocery store and buy actual ingredients for things. What things, I'm not sure, but I will.

Some feral anti-virus program has latched onto my computer. It keeps popping up with "ZOMFG YOU'VE BEEN INFECTED REGISTER NOW" messages that I'm really hoping will stop if I click "GO AWAY, FFS" enough. For now I've just got my Task Manager up to zap the messages that way.

I don't normally stay up for it- so much easier to dash over to the website to see the latest episode- but I do want to see if The Daily Show has anything cool to say about the awesome news on Prop 8.

Hm, I wanted to have more fun things to talk about, but.. yeah. Oh hey, Rifftrax is doing another live show on the nineteenth! Reefer Madness, the colorized version. So, yeah, that'll be cool. Also, completely at random today while I was working on cover art for a song mix I'm putting together, I found "Shalala" by Martin McFaul. It's a pretty darn cool song you can go here to download. If his whole album is like that, I might not be able to resist buying it.

*sigh* I shouldn't, since it will probably interfere with those grandiose GRE and grocery plans I have for tomorrow, but my fic-writing brain feels like it's been stagnating since finishing the bigboom fic, so...

Give me a prompt for a five-sentence fic.

Thanks kindly! Now I gotta run and see if the TV's free for Burn Notice.

ETA: Name your five favorite evil characters. Heh, I see what you did there, fannish5. No spoilers. )

I'm watching about six very adorable deer eat corn out of the container my stepdad likes to put out in the backyard. He entertains dreams of hand-feeding them one day. All I can think is that those same deer are going to make a mess of the garden in a few weeks.

Anyway, I've gotten a good group of questions for my fifteen characters meme, so here are my answers. They come in the following categories: funny, interesting, and OW MY BRAIN.

Okay, there's four more left to be posted, only one of which is totally written right now, so here's what's done so far. Some of these got surprisingly long, I must say. Dunno what's up with that.

A/N: You know what? Het's kinda fun. I should try it more often. Moving on, sorry if the man in this story in no way resembles Major West. It's been about four months since the one and only time I saw the movie.

Get a grip, Watson. )

In case you haven’t, in the end, two “agents” take the invisible Marcie Ross to a “facility” in which other invisible people are being taught what appear to be assassination techniques. Yeah, that’s screaming so loud for a crossover with the Company, I just had to write part of it.

Go on back to your slayer and your books, mate. )

You can't talk about him. )
lotus0kid: (thoughtful)
I'm going to be a good little Christopher Eccleston fangirl today and finally watch 28 Days Later. Yeah, it's not Second Coming or Revenger's Tragedy, but I had this huge craving for a good horror movie yesterday, enough to drag myself out of the house before dinner and rent 28 Days Later and The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I watched the latter last night- it was good, but I kept getting distracted watching Deb from Dexter writhe around and scream under the influence of demons. It also gave me an interesting idea for a story, so that's cool.

Now to fight off my chronic case of the fuck-its and get a little work done, it being my last week at my job and all.
