Honestly, though, I did recently find out that I was born and raised in the fifth richest county in the country. Ye-eah... *fidgets under mink coat of privilege*

Anywho, meme! From [livejournal.com profile] zombres:

Comment with "Come at me, bro"
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

She gave me some kickass questions, for serious. )

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.


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. )

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)
Well, looks like I'll be headed to Florida next week with my mom to visit my sister and nephew. Hope that goes well (please don't make me hold him). It's going to be a five-day trip, which takes a serious bite out of the remaining time for me to finish my bigboom fic. That's unfortunate because now I don't even know how far along I am. Can't be more than two-thirds, though, at the most. So, I think I'm going to have to do the sequestering thing, see if I can't crank out something more like five-sixths of this beast before I leave.

So, before that development, I've been watching some things.

White Collar and Psych- spoilers! )

Also, the ongoing Netflix affair:

Wristcutters: A Love Story and 1978's Dawn of the Dead- also spoilers! )
lotus0kid: (rawk)
My calendar and DVD came! Yay! All... well, more is right with the world. Now I'm just wondering about my Microsoft Office software. Would've expected that to get here real quick. Anyway, reviving a meme, because it's a very fun one:

- Write a list of characters and number them.
- Input the number of characters into this random number generator as the maximum and generate two numbers.
- Ramble about how the corresponding pairing/partnership/general interaction would (or, indeed, wouldn't) work. Perhaps write a snippet/one-sentence fic for it if you're feeling brave.
- Repeat to your heart's content.

Fandoms represented: Middleman, Firefly, Discworld, White Collar, Dollhouse, Burn Notice, Doctor Who, Psych, Hot Fuzz, Jeeves & Wooster, and Heroes )
lotus0kid: (kinda cool)
Swinging in before I give myself over to submission-reading. I've been a complete lump and haven't read a single one since Saturday *winces*. Whatever, I totally will tonight when I'm not watching Mythbusters. I'll even stay up until eleven if I don't get enough done. And I'll read more tomorrow. Yes.

Anyway, the reason for the swinging in: remixes are up and done! Yay!

The lovely remixes I received:
Since I Found Serenity (The Dysdaimonia Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] joking- Firefly, Jayne-centric
They Sold You On Their Way (The Bridezilla Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] amathela- Heroes, pre-series D.L/Niki

The remixes I wrote:
M.I.A. (The Rule-Breaker Remix) for [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket- Plaude S1 pre-slash
Feeling Pretty Psyched (The Zompocalypse Remix) for [livejournal.com profile] melodyunity- Psych gen featuring Shawn, Gus, and Henry
Directions (The Overseas Aid Remix) for [livejournal.com profile] 2ndary_author- Firefly pre-series not quite!Zoe/Wash
Unmentionables (The Birthday Girl Remix) for [livejournal.com profile] little_missmimi- Firefly unrequited Inara/Kaylee

Annnd I'm off!

Top Five!

Ah, okay, hopefully I have enough time for this...

My Top Five Plaude Songs )

ETA: Okay, here's hoping I don't get in trouble for this. I think I'm okay.

My Top Five 'Ships )
lotus0kid: (kinda cool)
Sooo, I've got the complete series of The Middleman sitting next to me, and I just finished watching the Comic Con table read of the final latest episode. Yup, order me up another grin-ectomy. I'm gonna need it. Inna godda da vida!

In other news, temp work is hopefully a go, soon. It's funny, I was reading one of the contracts you have to sign, and, I dunno, it was kind of cool. I felt like I was some kind of admin mercenary being sent out to companies in need of my services. I'm a dork. But a happier dork than I was yesterday.

I'm also a meme sheep! Snatched most recently from [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket:

List the first ten series that come to mind. Your friends will comment with the character from each series that they think you are most like.

1. The Middleman
2. Firefly
3. Heroes
4. Better Off Ted
5. Reaper
6. Doctor Who
7. Discworld
8. Pushing Daisies
9. Psych
10. (Oh, I'm asking for it, but) Watchmen
lotus0kid: (Firefly/MST3K)
Okay, one last thing before I'm incommunicado until Saturday. A meme snatched away from [livejournal.com profile] visiblemarket:

List 10 platonic male/female relationships in fiction that you enjoy.


1. They interact in canon, preferably in a significant (apply your own interpretation of such) way.
2. They are not related. They can, however, view each other as surrogate family.
3. Neither has confessed or implied romantic love for the other in canon.
4. They have not dated, been married, had sex, or made out in canon, on purpose, and of their own free will.
5. A popular fanon ship is ok (though preferably not your ship) but a canon pairing you wish were just friends is out.
6. Try to avoid using the same character or series twice.

I've got a lot of 'partners in crime' type dynamics going on here... )

Oh boy, I would really like to climb back into bed right now. Take another shot at that whole sleep thing because apparently I did it wrong last night and now I'm more tired than I was before. Blegh. Whatever. I'm fine, just whining because I don't want to squeeze out two whole pages of essay today. Poor me. Sorry I haven't been pulling my comment-weight lately- I've been getting back from class or working on (not fun) projects or finishing up research and basically haven't had the sufficient brain-function left to give things they're proper consideration. That's an awful sentence, but I can't think of a better one.

And now, to cloak my self-pity in something more socially acceptable and maybe even perk me up a little, here's more fun with [livejournal.com profile] fannish5!

Name five imaginary places you would like to go on vacation.

The trick is thinking of somewhere that's actually pleasant, and not too life-threatening. )
lotus0kid: (Firefly/MST3K)
Rating: PG for a little swearing
Word Count: 4,237
Disclaimer: Pysch and Firefly belong to other folks, not me.
A/N: This one's been sitting on my computer for quite a while now. It's so good to have it finished.
Summary: Shawn helps the head detective on a very special project. Whether he wants him to or not. If you're not sure how this is a crossover, check out the Firefly episode "Trash."

That's so awesome. )
