Happymaking List of Win.

#1. Found Glee in the mail from odakota_rose. *squishes* Now I'm plotting to get the rest of my family into the show. *cackles evilly* I've just been stroking the pretty cover for the past week; I know it sounds creepy, but it's so shiny and new and squeeful! :D

#2. MY FATHER'S GOING TO FIJI FOR A WEEK, WOOHOO!
*happydances* A whole week without him! I am so excited.  ^_^

Yes, it sounds cold, but as much as I appreciate what the man has done for me, he's not easy to live with- FFS, he'll seize on any excuse to get angry; too many pens on my table, the tap not aligned at the proper angle over the sink, the curtains not closed at some arbitrary hour...it's gonna be blissful without him around. *sighs happily*

#3. Guess what? I walked into the library foyer and a desk laden with odds-and-ends caught my eye, with the sign declaring 'Free to good home: be quick before they're binned'. I saw a whole pile of junk and was about to walk off when these stopped me in my tracks.



I read these books hundreds of times in high school, and now I have my own copies! *bounces* I just wish they hadn't put those stickers right over their faces, but what the hell. Free X-files books, omgyay!

#4. ‘k, so why is Alexis wearing a ring on her wedding finger?



Is she hiding something from us? Maybe I’m being dumb and she explained it somewhere along the way and I missed it but wow. Either that’s a promise ring from a boy she’s serious about or she’s disregarding the convention that a person can’t wear a ring on that finger without it meaning something. I occasionally wear one of my rings on my wedding finger- heck, I’m never getting married and I’m running out of fingers, so what the hell?

Craptastic List of Fail.

#1. Oh, dear god. I wasn't going to watch SYTYCD Australia, or at least, not the auditions- but mother had it on and called me, just as a contestant auditioned with a song from the Labyrinth soundtrack.

O.o Freaky, no? The week I fall in love with this movie, some crazy fan shows up with a routine to one of the songs...but holy crap, it sucked SO BAD. I was cringing, this chick just totally made me want to throttle her for giving people another reason to laugh at sci-fi/fantasy fans. *glares* Oh, tv gods, just ONE person I needed to rock the routine so that I could delight in the fandom squee, but no, she made me ashamed to admit to loving that song. Ugh.

#2. Mentalist!fail.

Robin Tunney on the new boss- "It's another woman who's going to flirt with Simon and have power over me...I don't know if that's going to go well. I think there's going to be some jealousy and some power struggles. We're all going to have difficulty with it..."

I have major issues with this )

Yes, I know I'm judging it before even seeing what they're going to do with this plot arc. But  after the way the writers resolved the R/vP UST and the Bosco thing...I've lost a lot of faith in them. It's getting way too desperate.

#3. Vampire Diaries- WHY IS THIS SHOW SO STUPID?



WHY AM I STILL WATCHING IT?

Convo of Epic Fail )

#4. The Border.



Does anyone watch it? 

Not me, after the season 1 finale. *wibbles* )

30 Day Meme: snurched from labrt2004.

Day 04 → Your favourite book.

Tough call, there are a lot of books I love. But for the one that combines all the elements that I most adore into one amazing book, I'll say Ilona Andrews- On the Edge. Seriously, all the things I love to see in my heroine, all the squeeful aspects I enjoy seeing in my ship...it has it all. *dances* You should all read this book, it's made of epic win.

I do love the Kate Daniels books, but this one's romance/fantasy, so I got to feel like I'm reading something more intellectual than my usual trashy romances but still with Rose rocking the feisty banter and reluctant UST and badassery and culminating in a happy fluffy ending. :D

I've just had one of the best weeks of my life.
If I could choose any period of my life to live over again, it would be this last week.
I indulged in all the simple pleasures in life- reading, eating, watching, sleeping... *shivers with delight* It was perfect.

My idea of bliss )

GUYS. OMG, OMG, OMG. CHECK THIS OUT.
 

About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.


And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.

Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.

o.O >_< :DDDDD

How spectacular is this?! I WANT. *dies laughing*

Sanctuary.




Amanda Tapping is amazing. She's just breaking my heart this season with all the angst, zomg. Brief picspam. No commentary, just the pretty.

Last time I drew a comparison between Sanctuary’s John Druitt and our politician Peter Garrett. [Eerie, no?]

Now I bring your attention to Will Zimmerman. As soon as I saw him, I was all over the obvious Daniel Jackson comparison.



Apparently that’s why he ditched the glasses, lol.
But as Netty and I were doing our marathon, she turns to me and goes, ‘Hey, he looks like Harry Potter’ just as I was turning to her to say the same! [Great minds, etc. etc.] REALLY. Lookit.

 


 

Will-Harry compare/contrast )


 

You all need to appreciate how awesome Netty is. Seriously, best friend in RL, and the fact that she’s family is a bonus.

[Druitt appears onscreen, all menacing and mysterious-like]

Netty: Who’s that? The science tech guy?
Me: Uh…no. What do you think when they talk about prostitutes being killed?
Netty: *confuzzled*
Me: Historical context, dead hookers, come on…
Netty: Oh, oh, Marguerite and Roxton, with the two guys that were killing together… Jack the Ripper!

Lol. The woman drops TLW references into conversation. My love for her, it is infinite. :D

Vidspam.
Three minutes in, Will does a brief impression of Helen's British accent. But it's well worth watching the whole thing- if you're a fan, it'll remind you of some of the best moments of hilarity. If you're not, well, off with you, become addicted already! :P

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 )
-

I HATE JESSI. SHE NEEDS TO DIE RIGHT THE FRAK NOW.
*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 CAN GO SEE AMANDA TAPPING! WHEEE! :D
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 ^_^ )

SORTING HAT


Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...

Slytherin

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:
 ChaoticOrderly
MoralGryffindorHufflepuff
RationalSlytherin
Ravenclaw

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.

marguerite_krux: (Default)
The good.
OMG, OMG, OMFG, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
I was just looking up the Armageddon line-up for this year and I might COLLAPSE FROM EXCITEMENT.




I'm just not sure if these guys are doing the Melbourne expo or just Sydney so I don't want to celebrate just yet in case my dreams are crushed like a fat squishy bug splatting underfoot, but oh, the hope. Please, if there is a god, make it so? *wistful*

I'm a little worried, though- two dudes from Twilight [Michael Welch and Kellan Lutz?] are also appearing which means that as crazy packed and lengthy-queue-waiting tiring as it's been in the past two years, it's probably gonna be more squished and exhausting by a factor of a gajillion. *sighs* Twilight fans are crazy, yo. [If anyone makes a crack about the pot calling the kettle black...I'm warning you]

The bad.
Leverage season 2 spoilers. >:[
Not happy  )

And the cracky.
GUYS, Peter Garrett looks like John Druitt. *flails*



Does anyone find this freaky at all? Our Arts Minister resembling Jack the Ripper, omg! :P

Peter Garrett/John Druitt comparison )

---
Also, the pretty.
Emma Watson to star in Marilyn Manson's creepy movie musical based on Cinderella. [Articles here and here]


Doesn't she look like a princess in the first one? *coos*
But then I remembered that this is a dark gothic fairytale, so she might end up looking more like the latter.

Fairytale!Emma picspam )

I love those whimsical outfits, she looks gorgeous!
I'm looking forward to seeing what she can accomplish outside of Harry Potter. I hope this movie's a success for her- it's annoying how articles keep saying it's her first time straying beyond HP territory when she made Ballet Shoes and voiced a character in Despereaux. I really want her to succeed on her own. *optimistic*

Not the best quality, but it's the only semi-decent one I could find. I WANT THIS ON DVD NAO, PLZ. Oh, the rib-busting hilarity.... *wipes away tears of laughter*

marguerite_krux: (Default)
Guys! God, that three day weekend was torture, I hate being away from LJ, it's my home, damn it, and I missed you all so much. *glomps everyone*

Btw? If you're feeling ignored lately, it's not you, it's me. I'm smack bang in the middle of exam period hell, plus we're getting ready to move out of rental limbo into the first home we've owned in my nearly-21 years of life. Hectic would be an understatement. But be prepared to be spammed with my love once it's settled down, 'k?

---

So, I only caught like, ten minutes of Sanctuary, but OMG! *spazzes out* Amanda! Brunette! British accent! GUH! I am totally excited.

Random shallow thoughts )

Much love and eternal gratitude to muzzy_olorea for directing me to the pretties. *squishes* I googled in vain, and would’ve never come across this shrine to Robin Tunney and Simon Baker without assistance, so *mwah* ^_^

After endless squee, I collected a few of my favorites for a mini Robin!picspam. [luxuria_oceanus, my fellow gawker of beautiful women, you should appreciate this on that advanced, sophisticated mental level we operate on...*g*] It's...probably not work-friendly. I don't know, it's fairly tame but I probably would make sure your boss isn't lurking behind you anywhere.

 


Um…so it took me a moment to realize she was probably pointing at the trophy. *coughs* My gaze followed her finger to a totally different destination… :P

Can I just say- HOT DAMN!  )



I’m so used to seeing her as the sensible, practical Lisbon that my eyes about dropped out of my head to see the sexy, sultry side of her. *fans self* My brain's pretty much mush right now. Don't expect anything intelligent out of me for a while. [Do you ever?]

Vidspam:


OMG! I never realized this before but- are Lisbon and Jane actually HOLDING HANDS when they make a break for the car as it’s raining?!

Revenge is for fools and madmen )
