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 )


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*

[PS. Can anyone tell me how to bloody block quote? It would make quoting large blocks of text so much easier]


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

I've had so many family functions lately, it's exhausting. The past three weekends have been devoted to some occasion or another. And we've got a dinner this weekend in Melbourne for a relative I don't even know that well but am compelled to attend and socialize with anyway. *groans*

Anyway, we just had the twins' 21 birthday dinner- despite the fact that their birthday was in December, and was already celebrated back then. Their father just came over for a visit from Samoa for Netty's grad and so they decided to have a dual grad/birthday celebration so that he didn't feel like he missed out because he couldn't fly over for their actual birthday. Even though Amu's birthday was last Friday, so that would've been a more timely event to celebrate but we didn't end up doing anything for that...probably celebrate it on Christmas. *eyeroll*

Family stuff )


My friends and I managed to get kicked out of Westfield by the security guards. *eyeroll*

OMG, such hardcore rebels. *snickers* )


My parents are super paranoid and I try to humor them although it really irritates me how insanely over-protective they can be. So I decided not to tell them about this drunk guy that spontaneously jumped in the car with us. We were on our way to see Star Trek [to much moaning and groaning from the non-sci-fi-fans of the group] and this guy just pushed his way into the car beside me.

I thought from his familiar manner that he was a friend of someone in the car so I didn't make a fuss. The guy reeked of alcohol- he generously offered to share, though we declined- and after some polite, if rambling, conversation, he announced he'd join us. Katherine actually started pulling away from the curb when he changed his mind at the last minute and hopped out again. So random!

After he left, we realized that none of us had any idea who this guy was, and she had been totally ready to take a stranger along to the movies with us. *facepalm* Okay, so he was a harmless drunk and I wasn't really scared or anything, but the was so easy for him to get in the car, it just freaks me out that he could've been the less pleasant 'angry drunk' or like, a serial killer seeking a carful of young victims...*shudders* Doesn't help I just saw that Criminal Minds ep where the unsub was randomly slaughtering people in their cars... *meep*


The Star Trek movie- COMPLETELY AWESOME. If you haven't seen it, YOU NEED TO GO DO THAT RIGHT NOW.

It was funny, I kept thinking that Kirk reminded me of someone and then halfway through, it hit me...CAM MITCHELL. They bear a superficial resemblence, and every word out of his mouth, his intonation, his mannerisms, it all reminded me of Cam's attitude.

Also, THIS!

No wonder Cam and Chris's Kirk were intertwined in my head...Cam played pseudo!Kirk in 200! [This scene should've been longer- why couldn't they cut that damn puppet skit and beefed up this and the Farscape spoofs? *pouts*]

Thoughts on the movie )

Some bastard totally stole all the trinkets from my grandfather’s grave.

We’ve been building up a collection of random shinies, like a whole bird collection- because he went bird crazy in his last few months, lol- souvenirs from the zoo, from the airport giftshops… just little things to brighten up his grave and reflect his personality and our family’s abiding love for him and the way he’s still present in our thoughts and conversations. And someone goes and takes them all.

Some sick little juvenile delinquent, no doubt. Ugh.

I am...

I was in the underground computer labs five minutes ago. The alarm goes off. *WAIL WAIL WAIL* And there's like, hundreds of us kids madly hacking away at our keyboards...alarms going...a few lights flashing...

NOBODY MOVES. It's the most frakking hilarious thing ever. Unless there was a fire raging away right in front of our faces, none of us were going to relinquish our lifelines, lol. It took a teacher walking in and telling us all to move our butts that finally convinced everyone to take the alarm seriously. I still have no idea what it was for- although the floors above are the chem/bio-hazard areas, so...hmm...

When did GateWorld turn into a social networking site like myspace and all? I had an email telling me about friend requests and when I log into GW, suddenly there's like photo albums and social groups I already feel so guilty about all these people I'm neglecting from bebo to myspace to here, and now GW can join the list, lol. I WILL NOT EVEN LOOK AT FACEBOOK. *stamps foot* No more responsibilities, damn it.

Staying with Ma this week, as the American relatives have taken my room. [With my new Mary + A/R wall-decorating theme, heh- wonder what they'll make of THAT?!] Boarding with the grandmother offers all types of perks, including Foxtel and unlimited internet hours, which combined to keep me up til 6am this morning. My head feels like it's stuffed full of cotton wool and about to explode bits of fluff everywhere any moment now.

But it was SO TOTALLY WORTH IT. I plan to make the most of the free internet access, hee...

I've finished reading pretty much every fic on Survival Instinct. NOW what am I supposed to do? It feels like the end of an era. I’m at a loss now. SI was the only major A/R fic site, right? I mean, Sparky had a few different websites devoted to it, not including which I trawled if I was really desperate [as a member, I am totally within my rights to pay out fellow lousy authors, although I am still a step above producing Mary-Sue!fics, kthxbai].

LJ has an A/R comm but I’m lazy when it comes to searching through all the other posts with icons, wps, ep discussion, random flailing…don’t get me wrong, all of that is fun fun fun, but when I’m searching for fic, I like it neatly set out for me, you know? Trotting to the local store to buy nicely packaged goods as opposed to stalking my prey and hunting-and-killing. Hmm, maybe staying up all hours of the night exhausting my fic resources isn't the best plan...

I crossed over the 60kg threshold. [132 pounds] *EPIC FLAILING* I know it's shallow and all, but...*whimpers*

I was always like, 'yeah, screw healthy eating and exercise, if I can keep my weight below 60 -even if it's 59.9, it's all good...' and now I'm thinking I might have to make like icarus_abides and go *shudders* running. I know, I know, you're only supposed to go running for your HEALTH and to be FIT, but the only way I'm doing this is to get thin, damn it.

Thing is, I am way better at moral support and motivating people to do things that I wouldn't do in a million years. Like, I am the best cheerleader to have in your corner when you need some morale boosting, but DOING things myself? Nuh-uh.

HEE! Fandom collision!

[I adore the Mary McDonnell fan site, seriously, it is awesomeness to an infinite degree]

I gave him my copies of season one and two of House in Febuary.

It is now December.

I have been bugging him ALL YEAR about giving them back and he makes lame excuses to put me off. He finally admitted the other day that he doesn't know where they are exactly, but he knows they're in his house *that* reassures me. 

Damn it, I keep wanting to have a marathon and then realizing I can't because I DON'T HAVE THEM.

What a loser. See if *he* gets anything for Christmas this year. *pouts*

[Otoh, maybe this is a chance at extortion. If I put on my best woebegone face and act all melancholy about how badly I've been treated by him, maybe I could score season 3 from him as a guilt-reducing Christmas present...heh...]
