Things that make me laugh:

Item #2385469029353 on the list of snicker-worthy ship name smushes. GRAPE.
As in Hermione Granger/Severus Snape =  Granger/Snape =Grape. *cracks up laughing*
I know I shouldn't talk, given I've submitted Jello as the Jane/Lisbon alternative ship name, but seriously, Grape?!

I was re-reading this convo that odakota_rose and I had a while back about a TLW/Sound of Music crossover and her crack!dialogue still sends me into gigglefits. ^_^
Can you imagine Marguerite meeting all these randomly happy singing people? 
{Marguerite: Roxton, they're just going around singing! Obviously they're delusional.
Roxton: I imagine it's because they're happy.
Marguerite: I told you- delusional. And I haven't ever seen them need a reason to start singing. Yesterday Maria burst into song after a t-rex chased them- going on about her favorite things as if it would keep the dinosaurs away!}

I finished watching the Sanctuary finale yesterday. [OMG! *WIBBLES*] Which totally influenced my dream, in which I was at some sorta safe house with John Druitt and we had this whole Hannibal/Clarice [ship!] vibe going on, like, there was the 'I don't know whether I want to hit on you or kill you now' thing happening. *shivers* At least cannibalism wasn't on the menu. :P Forgive my terrible punning...

Things that make me rant:

Incompetent staff and terrible fast food service + annoying Australian habits )


I want to like Primeval. It’s kinda hard ‘coz:

List of fail )

*quivers with loathing and hostility*

I've only seen the first few eps of season 4 [Psychic Friend and Electric Kiss stick in my memory as well as my craw] and wow, did TATB screw up this show but good. I was upset when I found out about its cancellation but at this point, it's a mercy killing. *nodnod*

Kyle/Amanda v Kyle/Jessi )


Things that make me bounce off the walls:

I was worried about the timing before, 'coz my parents wrangled numerous concessions to allow me to go to the convention last year, when it was a month before exam period. But due to the tortuous new trimester system- which necessitates the loss of our holidays plus study week *glares*- exams finish the week before the con! Oh, joy! *twirls giddily*

Does anyone know why the hell Channel Ten is suddenly screening So You Think You Can Dance at 11pm now? What happened to the family-friendly 7:30pm slot? They'd never do this shocking time-frame for the Australian version, so what gives? I much prefer the American show, with the hilarious judges and wonderful Cat and far more entertaining and humorous contestants, and it deserves better than to be relegated to last place behind Simpsons and movie repeats. *frowns*

I’m stuck in limbo hell, waiting for the next installments in all my favorite series. Currently making me nearly leap out of my skin with eager anticipation and hopeless desperation:

My wishlist ^_^ )




Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...


You scored 42% Order/Chaos, and 35% Moral/Rational

Chaotic Rationality. You don't think much of rules and restrictions; you look at things from an analytical perspective and probably think morality is relative to some extent. Your strength lies in being able to make your own judgments and form your own strategies uninhibited by others; your weakness lies in the wariness other people may have of you, perceiving you as dangerous.

You join people like Theodore Nott, Severus Snape, and Horace Slughorn.

The 4-grid I used to determine this is as follows:

Cute little vid featuring former Australian Idol contestant, Lisa Mitchell. She was all whiny-ass on the show, didn't make a very impressive showing of herself, but this? Redeems her completely. It's adorkable and quirky and wistful, and omg, that little dance she does...actually, calling it a dance is being generous, lol, but I love it 'coz that's totally what I do! Just jerk awkwardly to the beat, with the most minimal movement possible, looking kinda odd but she's so cute she carries it off well.

'...but do not dull thy palm with entertainment of each new-hatch'd unfledg'd comrade...'

My grandfather used to love this quote, we'd all groan but chime in. All I could ever remember was grappling with hoops of steel, lol.

I don’t know if this will make sense to anyone who doesn’t share my brain, but I have a theory. It occurred to me while I was watching the season three premiere of Kyle XY. Kyle and Jessi are…get ready for it…the new Blair and Serena [Gossip Girl]. TOTALLY. I know one show is a soapie and the other is- well, also a soapie, albeit with sci-fi themes, and such a cool blend so you all should go watch it right now.

Let me justify this.


'Did B think S would go down without a fight? Or can these two hotties work it out? There's nothing Gossip Girl likes better than a good catfight. And this could be a classic...' )


'There's a reason why people say we shouldn't expect too much, no one wants to see someone they care about end up disappointed. We instinctively act to protect our own from being hurt, and do what we can to make the right choices for the people we love. But the reason we have expectations in the first place is because we want to aim as high as we can. Because when you love someone, there's no limit to what you can accomplish...' )

Jessi and her stupid pride, her relentless ambition. Blair and her control freak tendencies. The two girls who always need to be on top, who are always making power plays, and always seeking love and approval, whose best friends threaten their self-confidence and their self-delusions and thus need to be kept at arms length, even when they want to let them in, even when they know better but keep blindly stumbling down the path to self-destruction.

Show: Kyle XY
Topic: my hate for Jessi. Is vast enough to topple empires and explode suns.

Since I have so much love for Marguerite and Vala, you think I’d find it in me to like Jessi, someone who isn't the traditional heroine, who has flaws and makes mistakes. BUT I TRIED, OKAY. I gave it my best shot and she still keeps sinking to new lows and inspiring only more disgust and loathing. She got a chance and she blew it. I sympathize with characters that are brittle and hard-edged on the outside for good reason, to protect themselves, and even if they may not be particularly moral or pleasant, their heart ends up being in the right place. But that isn't Jessi at all.

Both Marguerite and Vala come off as flighty, shallow, selfish and greedy but they have proven time and again what valuable assets they are to their respective teams. They’ve risked their lives to save others and demonstrated courage, compassion and integrity. Jessi? None of the above. She's not 'complex' or 'multi-faceted', she's not 'ambiguous' or any of that other supposedly character-developing crap, she's just a stupid kid who abuses her powers for her own selfish whims with no regard for anyone else.

'This world is burning and I'm terrified, I need a little more time with you, oh, I just need a little more time with you...' )

It's settled. I'm going to be a super villain who has the power to steal teen metabolisms and[ profile] spence_reid  is my sidekick. I flirted with the idea of being a hero and a force for good, but this is more true to my character, lol. Just need to think about costumes now! Since we're going to be super fit and have the perfect bodies, my options are endless!

I do like this number by [ profile] cinegirl2000 .

I always saw Emily as more of a Wonder Woman type, since fotobridget2's fic Super Hero Family brainwashed me, but Elektra works too.


Mother and I had another of our now-weekly tennis matches. Til mother goes back to school, anyway. Stupid school. Although, that's kinda like saying 'stupid paycheck', so I shall forgive mother the inconvenience of her working for a living and not being around to entertain me when I wish.

At any rate, I lost again, 6-4. *sighs* There was one crucial shot when we were on 5-4 that could've changed the direction of the game in my favor but I was too tired and a little overconfident and TOTALLY HIT THE NET. Ugh. Why is it in basketball or netball, they're all like, 'Nothing but net, baby' and it's a good thing, but here the net is baaaad. I shall brood over that one shot for the rest of the day now. >:{

But it wasn't all bad news. Even though I lost the match, at least I was engaging in physical exercise and burning calories. Since I can no longer rely on my teen metabolism, that is somewhat important if I don't want to become the human blimp. So it's a win-win situation, really. Or that's what I tell myself to make losing sting less, lol.

Also, mother took pity on me and bought me some water ices, so yay! It's cool when my pitifulness leads her to spoil me. :D Okay, so water ices aren't really healthy and shouldn't be a 'reward' for running around, sweating it out on a court- Katherine, my favorite bubble burster, informed me it's basically frozen sugar- but I have this bizarre affliction where I cannot read or watch something good without eating at the same time. Water ices are yummy, take a while to eat, they don't fill up your stomach and don't feel as naughty as say, chocolate. They're also way less expensive than chocolate, bonus!

But yeah, I have this compulsion to munch or gnaw on SOMETHING when reading or watching, otherwise I can't enjoy whatever it is I'm engaged in. One of the reasons I hate going to restaurants, because for some reason, it's considered rude to ignore the people you're with and read with your food. Stupid social conventions.

Memety meme meme.
