Gosh, it was hard trying to think of items for the list that didn't include fandom. My life, so boring! 

Happy list of yayness

For the first time ever, I managed to have KFC three days in a row. My cousin, my mother and then my aunt/Ma shouted me. ^_^ Well, it’s not doing my health any favors, but my ‘diet’ makes me happy.

My psychologist. My first session last week went well. I turned up, intending it as a one-time only, but she convinced me to return for the next five government-funded sessions and I figured why the hell not? It’s not like I’m doing anything else with my life, right? And discussing my lack of direction atm and the utter failure I am is oddly comfortable when it’s to someone who’s paid to hear people whinge incessantly, I don’t feel bad when I know they’re getting compensated for putting up with me.

I was wary when she told me we were going to have a talk, because those never end well. But we ended up eating junk food in a park and having a lovely chat!

We talked about the family situation and while it was going well between us before, it’s even better now that we’ve officially sorted out that we’re okay with each other. I apologized, she told me something I’ve never heard before-‘it’s all about you’ [!]- and that she’s put what happened behind us because she just wants to help me find something to do and get to a good place in my life. I never wanted to have this talk because I was afraid that deep inside, she was still seething with anger and resentment but it happened and ended so much better than I had thought possible!

There was also much fandom-y conversation. A lot of times in the past, she’s dismissed my interest in tv because it’s pointless and won’t get me anywhere, but we were in that park for a few hours and half the convo was about different shows. Castle, Mentalist, even Dollhouse and A Very Potter Musical, lol. [I have the songs on my phone and played them for her]

She showed interest, she indulged my fangirly side and I had a fantastic time. Such a mama’s girl! 


Sucky list of suckitude

I broke a fingernail. :-[

I grow them out as long as possible- because I think they look cool that way...

...but when one inevitably breaks, then the rest of them need to be trimmed. And I hate how stumpy my fingers look with short nails!

Short being a relative term, I refuse to cut them at the same level or below than the length of my finger- I don't understand how people can have brutally short nails, it makes me wince. 

I shrieked and cowered no less than three times last night, shuddering and insisting that there was a mouse running loose in the house. My poor grandmother dutifully rose and beat around corners and under beds and in likely hidey-holes, but failed to turn up any hint of a rodent each time. It was completely embarrassing and yet I couldn’t suppress my squeals each time I saw a dark shape scuttling around, tail slithering behind it. *twitches*

I’m sure Ma thinks I’ve lost my mind, it undermines my claim to sanity, jumping at shadows but I know what I saw! What I think I saw…ugh.

I absolutely loved this fantasy novel, the name of which shall not be revealed in case I inadvertently spoil one of you, and was so into the series that I contemplated buying the next book [or harassing the library into buying it for me].

When I spied it in Borders, I figured I’d take a peek at the final chapter to see if the chick ends up with the guy I wanted- well, win/lose. MAJOR loss. While they do hook up, and she even becomes pregnant, the very last words are ominous: ‘And then he knew no more’. Um, WTF? This is how it ends?

It could be in the less-scary ‘and then he fell asleep and knew no more til the following day when he woke up in bed with the Love of His Life’, but…considering he was in a duel where he sustained numerous wounds…and also the way it reminds me of this craptastic scene: ‘And then Snape moved no more…’ Yeah, depressing. It sucks so hard it reaches back in time to retroactively ruin my enjoyment of the first book. *pouts*

Meme time:

Snurched from dragonladyk:
When you see this, post a poem to your own journal.

(a) Colours

When your face

appeared over my crumpled life

at first I understood

only the poverty of what I have.

Then its particular light

on woods, on rivers, on the sea,

became my beginning in the coloured world

in which I had not yet had my beginning. I am so

frightened, I am so frightened,

of the unexpected sunrise finishing,

of revelations

and tears and the excitement finishing.

I don't fight it, my love is this fear,

I nourish it who can nourish nothing,

love's slipshod watchman.

Fear hems me in.

I am conscious that these minutes are short

and that the colours in my eyes will vanish

when your face sets.

-Yevgeny Yevtushenko


The Marry/Shag/Throw off a cliff Meme:

From mw48.

Marry- Bill Weasley
I’ve googled him and can’t find one definitive picture of this character. The internet offers me a variety of choices, some attractive, some…not.

Still, out of a series of unappealing choices, this dude would be the best of the bunch, I suppose. He’s supposed to be charming, competent and caring, isn’t he? A hard-working dude who's still adventurous and glamorous, I'm all over it. Marriage to him would be a much better deal than to Ron or the Terrible Twins, ugh. *stabs them*

Shag- Draco Malfoy

Way too young for me, but he’s attractive, I’ll give him that much. Even if his character ended up being a disappointment. Can anyone tell me what he was even doing during DH? Was he at Hogwarts under the DE regime or what?

Throw off a cliff- Sirius Black

Oh, definitely off a cliff, chomped to bits by sharks and ground into kibble for the bottom-feeders. Loathe this guy so much. Why, YES, I’m holding a grudge on Snape’s behalf, what of it? I may be biased, but his general conduct doesn’t speak very highly of him- this dude endangers everyone’s lives on several occasions, and wtf, he even ATTACKS RON AND INJURES HIM but nobody gives a damn and holds him accountable because- what? Oh, JKR tells us he’s a good guy and they don’t get held to the same standards as villains. They can hex people and be rotten vindictive bullies who commit attempted murder using their supposed best friend as the weapon with absolutely no remorse, but oh no, they’re still Good Guys. But if someone JKR hates does the exact same thing or anything ten degrees below this, we’re supposed to judge them for it and delight at them nearly getting killed or scarred for life or something.

/rant. I’m going to stop myself there or I’ll never stop harping on about her childish black-and-white view of the world and absolute failure to grasp the complexities of human nature, along with her pathetic excuse for a moral compass and-

-oh, right, I was stopping. *lips zipped shut* 

From sunkrux.


I would definitely marry her! What does Ron have to offer her that I can’t?

Well, besides possessing magic and also seven years of history where they bonded through surviving numerous near-death moments and banded together to defeat an evil wizard [even if it was ridiculously contrived and they displayed all the ingenuity of a lobotomized patient due to the horrifyingly crappy writing talents of JKR].

Also, children. I don't know if that would be a deal-breaker or not. *coughs* 'coz I so do not plan on ever having kids, kthxbai.

But at least I wouldn’t constantly insult her as a form of, IDK, demonstrating affection or refuse to make a move on her yet react with vindictive jealousy and making her cry when she so much as looks at another love interest.

And I share her love of books and the library, so we’d have that to bond over. :P


Totally shagging him. >:D

Seriously, I know the majority of the population don’t understand his appeal, but he is just mesmerizing to me. I am utterly bewitched and ensnared and so into him, it’s crazy.

I’d marry him, I love him so much, but I think I’d irritate him. And my skin isn’t thick enough to weather all the inevitable barbs and criticism he’d hurl at me as I attempt to forge some sort of emotional connection. I leave that to hardier types, like Hermione. :P


Off the cliff! Look, this guy already literally fell off a cliff in the show and not only escaped unscathed, but with a really great hair-cut to boot!

From this:

To this:

Maybe the next dive off a cliff will also end up a blessing in disguise, like maybe Marguerite can drag him out this time, and they might get at least half an hour in private without a Momentus Interruptus.


TLW! *massive luff* It may have only lasted three seasons, but oh, there was an embarrassment of riches in regards to the ship. I had not lived til I saw my OTP taking a dip in a mud pool and then streaking through the jungle, lmao!

And someone gave me crap about throwing Pete off the cliff. :-b LOL

Glad you and your mom patched things up. *hugs* I hope talking to the therapist helps you figure things out so you can set a goal for your life and achieve it. I think you'll do great things once you figure out what it is. *hugs*

As for the nails, I always keep my fairly short because I can't STAND them long. They scratch me or I'll poke myself in the eye or scratch a friend. So I keep them short. That and I can not STAND the noise of nails on keyboards. that Clackyclackyclackclack noise drives me buggy.

But- but- Roxton has special Cliff Diving Survival Experience! We know he can handle it, a pterodactyl will swoop in and save him, or a vine will snare him on the way down, it's all good! :P

Things are really unexpectedly good right now. *fingers crossed* I'm pretty happy at how it's going, hope that trend continues! Mother's taking me to uni tomorrow to get a transcript so we can figure out what I need to do to finish my Arts degree. I'm definitely never touching law again, but I'm thinking I might want to pick up the Arts next year, if I'm still eligible.

I think you'll do great things once you figure out what it is.

Aww, well, thanks for the positive thinking and encouragement!

Lol! So far, the short nails group is outnumbering the long nails! I hear you on accidentally scratching people, though it's not enough of a deterrent for me to keep them short. *smirks* And I LOVE the sound of nails clacking on the keyboard! I think that's half the reason I grow them, it sounds cool to my ears. Ah, well, to each their own. *squishes*

But-but- Pete doesn't so I gave him a parachute to keep him from getting eaten by a PTERODACTYL. ;-b

Good luck with the Arts thing. ;) Hope you're still eligible.

I still love you, even if you have the evil long nails. ;-b

*smirks* You had to give him something to rescue him, whereas Roxton's survival was a given, in a suitably wacky way, knowing the Plateau, lol.

I've been watching WH13 on Foxtel the past few weeks, I'm so glad it's finally airing it. I was on the verge of ordering it, but it's nice I can save my money- at least til the real deal is released. It's been interesting! I liked the one where people were repeating weird behaviors, like that guy trying to grope Myka, lmao!

And I didn't think I'd like Claudia, I thought she was going to be like Kate on Sanctuary, the bratty entitled type that is totally selfish and makes life harder for others and comes up with inappropriate and plain stupid quips, but I really like Claudia, and I wish she had more screen-time!

I still love you, even if you have the evil long nails. ;-b
Hee, I'm glad you're willing to overlook my shortcomings! :P I'm so fortunate in my choice of friends!

Of course I did. I'm not about to hurt Myka and if ANYTHING happens to Pete on her watch (even me throwing him off a cliff) she'd totally blame herself and I can't do that to my girl. Besides...Roxton could get eaten by that big ass birdy. ;-b

Yes that eps is called Magnetism and it's my 2nd fav eps. You need to wait until you see the eps Duped (it's number 8 or 9 I believe). OMG!!! FLAIL!!!! that is the BEST eps of the show EVER!!! Want to know a fun factoid about the eps? The guy playing Ross (the one groping Myka) is the actor Ivan Sergei and he was Jack Hunter to Joanne's Nadia Ramadan in the movie trilogy Jack Hunter and the Lost Treasure of Ugarit. :D They have great chemistry in that movie. :D I squealed when I saw him in this eps. :D

I like Claudia. She's a smart ass (like me) but she really does love Artie, Pete & Myka so she doesn't do stuff to hurt them. :D don't have those...remember you like LONG nails. ;-b

I do love that your justification for saving Pete is not out of an appreciation for his character but out of deference to Myka's feelings. Hee!

Roxton could get eaten by that big ass birdy

*snorts* Remember Veronica trying to stop Marguerite shooting at the pterodactyl 'coz she might hurt Ned? Um, LIKE HE WANTS TO BE EATEN ALIVE. *eyeroll*

Ooh, can't wait to see the ep that's got you flailing!

The last one I saw was with the samurai sword, so the next one...
*checks* OMG, Duped is on tonight! *bounces*

Don't get me wrong I do like Pete I really do, I just like Myka more. :D Kinda like if forced to, I'd probably throw Roxton off a cliff if I had to choose between him and Marguerite. But I'd totally make sure he was okay cause you know Marguerite would kill me dead otherwise. LOL

Yes I remember that bit. I loved Marguerite's response which was something about her thinking Ned would want her to take that chance since being eaten by that big ass birdy &/or it's babies wouldn't be a pleasant way to go.

DUPED!!!! OMG!!! Joanne totally pwns all in that eps. She's so awesome. :D If you don't like it...please don't tell me. ;) It's my fav eps of S1. :D
