Oops!

August 24th, 2006 (09:58 am)

Okay, I suck for not doing this yesterday! I know this. You know this. We all know this. But here it is anyway:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY unageing!!!!!


Sorry it's not all pretty but I don't actually have the site on me...or else I'd totally use it.

Anyway, that's pretty much what I got on to say. I'll try later on to make a post about my day, but we'll just go with: FUN! ^_^

Been months, hasn't it?

August 10th, 2006 (03:58 am)

Yeah, I'm alive. It's shocking I know. But there was family problems/drama and I ended up having to...well, disappear from the face of LJ for awhile, as a result but I'm back and I hope to get my ass moving on those Spander song fics and the Dru drabbles that I've been dying to do. Because really, it's just a crime not to make time to write those.

Who knows? Maybe I'll write a Draco/Hermione sometime in the near future as well.

Anyway, there's really no point to this except to say hi to you all and say that I'll be checking out people's LJs, but I'll probably only comment on the most recent entry...maybe entries. Hope everyone's doing great and I'll hopefully be around more now! ^_^

Oops.

I really need to get on the ball with that next Dru drabble/ficlet. I started it and then I went to go visit family and I kind of sort of...forgot to take it with me.

Then there's the fact that I don't have the next Spander song fic done. Why? I've been concentrating on other things recently and so haven't finished writing that either.

Seriously. Oops.

Ah well. Maybe within the next week or two. I'm determined! LOL. I will get it done.

*crosses fingers and hopes*

Yay! New layout...sort of. Well, new look!

I'm feeling: Image hosting by Photobucket productive

Yes! Done with changing my journal up. And I know, you're thinking "Why do you even bother when you practically never update?"

Simple.

It's pretty. They're pretty. Can you tell me you don't think at least one of them is just...wow?

Anyway, that's pretty much the point of this post. So I'm off. Homework and shit. (Oh the fun...)

Ah well. Maybe I'll actually get something written...hey! Maybe I can do another Dru drabble.

Now that would be fun.

Oops...finally doing this meme!

January 31st, 2006 (01:39 am)

Okay, so Raven tagged me forever and a day ago to find out who I'd do and well...hey, I'm finally responding! (What did I tell you? I'm horrible at posting here!)

Anyway, my list is this (and let me add that the first few are so tied that they are not in particular order since I couldn't decide who I'd do more and so just put them on the list in the order I saw them and went nuts over them):

1. Nicholas Brendon (Hee! I <3 Xander!)
2. James Marsters (Oh the accent...the accent!)
3. Jason Dohring (OMG! Woobie + Snark = HOT!)
4. Tom Felton (Sensing a trend with the blond snarky Brits? Though, yes, I know James Marsters isn't really British.)
5. Orlando Blooom (The man is gorgeous. Period.)
6. Johnny Depp (And I salute to Captain Jack Sparrow! Who is also gorgeous.)
7. Tom Pelphrey (Jonathan!! Enough said.)
8. Paul Anthony Stewart (I may prefer him clean shaven, but he looked good when Danny went scruffy as well.)
9. Sark! I believe the actor's name is David Andrews or something along those lines. But in case I'm wrong, let's just make it clear that I mean Sark.
10. Shane West
11. George Clooney (Ocean's 11, anyone?)
12. Brad Pitt (And again...Ocean's 11? Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Wow.)
13. Is it wrong that I'm putting Kyo from Fruits Basket on here? Because he's a cartoon character. But he's great! And if he were real, I'd do him.
14. Going in the same vein as number 13, I'm putting Pietro Maximoff on here. Yup, I'd totally do Quicksilver if I could. And I'm talking Evo version here people. Which may be wrong since he's supposed to be in high school in that but I'm not caring.
15. Eminem (Something about the guy...I just would.)
16. Eliza Dushku (She's hot. Plain and simple. I've gotten other completely straight friends to admit it too!)
17. Adam Brody (He's such a comic geek on The OC! Hee! Yes, I like lanky guys who are a bit of a geek...because I'm a geek. Which is totally cool. Admit it. Plus, did you see him in that suit in Mr. and Mrs. Smith?!)
18. Shawn Ashmore. (Iceman baby!)
19. Who's the guy that played Pyro in X2? I don't actually know his name, but he's on the list.
20. Ewam McGregor (The eyes...the accent...need I say more?)

Okay, so I thought of a few extra (like in a couple more years, I'm so adding Daniel Radcliffe to the list. But with him being...what, 15? Little wrong right now) people but I'm holding off on adding them to the list. Little mystery is good. ^_^

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

5 Guilty Pleasures

January 12th, 2006 (11:47 am)

I'm Feeling: Image hosted by Photobucket.com bored

Yes, this is what I do on days that I'm bored. I get on LJ. I should probably do this more often because then I'd actually have people to tag to continue this. But I'm not on here as often as I probably could be, lol. So anyway! Got tagged by unageing so now, I'm going to regale you with tales of my guilty pleasures.

1. Shoes This is a big one for me. And I stick by my theory of this being genetic. Of course every time my mom visits she hints that maybe I'd have more room if I got rid of some of my shoes. This results in a look that's a mix of horror and "This coming from the woman who has 26 pairs of shoes?" Personally, I just think she doesn't want me catching up to her. And I have less than her. I have 22 pairs (and that includes all of them...tennis shoes, boots, heels, sandals). No wait, I just bought this pair of sparkly, strappy black heels the other day. Make that 23.

2. Fanfiction And another big one of mine, one that's very distracting at times. It wouldn't be so bad if I every single time I got on the internet I decided to check what updates there've been, even when I'm supposed to be doing a paper or something. An even bigger one of mine is slash fanfiction. It's one of my favorite things to read (Draco/Harry and Spike/Xander being my two favorites, though I also like Xander/Angel...some Spike/Angel too) since I pretty much lost track of D/Hr fics that I really like, except for maybe one or two. (And Raven's is one of them, which is why I'm also nagging at her to update. I think the next installment of Dru hunting down the soldiers is needed. Which brings me to my next guilty pleasure.)

3. Writing It seems that I don't ever have as much time as I'd like to write. I mean, look at the Spander Song Challenge that I started in mid-November. I've only written like 3 of those even though I know what I want for a bunch of them. (And I'll fully admit that some of that has to do with the Spike/Xander community not giving a lot of songs and me postponing since I don't want it to end.) I think I'm just going to forge ahead and write the next few and make another requests for songs. Or I'm...I'm...I'm going to make them straight! Ha! That's right!

4. Listening to Music I listen to music every chance I get. It relaxes me. And, ironically, if I have a headache, listening to my music kind of loud helps me (oddly enough, everything else has to be quiet...which is probably weird) but other noise just makes it worse. I don't understand it and I stopped trying. It just is I figure. For instance, I'm blasting the music right now. ^_^ I'll include buying CDs here because I've been dying to buy the Rent soundtrack but has my check come in yet? Of course not. It's a conspiracy! If they don't give me my check so I can get the soundtrack, I'll start singing it myself. (Not sure how effective that would work as a threat but worth a shot.)

5. Books and DVDs Which ties in with spending time alone. But I'm always checking to see what books I don't have by my favorite author and then I start scouring the shelves for other books and authors that I think sound interesting. I've stumbled on some gems that way. And DVDs...I love getting DVDs of movies I love and I have many. Classics, musicals, comedy, drama...do I sound like an addict? Really, I'm not. I think. But this ties in with spending time alone because I love curling up with a good book or grabbing a blanket, throwing it over myself while sitting on the couch, and watching a good movie. Which I will admit is just as fun with friends.

So there you go. Those are five of my guilty pleasures. And I'd tag five others but...well, I don't know five others! LOL, like I said, I should probably come on here more.

A Bribe...

January 8th, 2006 (12:53 pm)

I'm Feeling: Image hosted by Photobucket.com relaxed

I have no idea why the heck my mind decided that in the shower would be a fun time to get the idea for this but it did. And I've decided that I'm going to use this against Raven as a bribe for more of Mistaken. ^_^

What am I offering? Well, as Raven knows, I do much better playing in Joss' playground, so no, this time I'm not giving her Draco/Hermione smut.

I'm giving her this instead:

Title: A Time For Revenge
Pairing/Character: Drusilla
Rating: PG...for now. ~_^
Summary: Drusilla thinks about Spike after leaving Sunnydale again.
Spoilers/Warnings: This takes place in season 5, just after the episode "Crush". Makes reference to things that happen later in the series and on Angel because, well, it's Dru.
Disclaimer: If they were mine don't think I'd be making them do what I wanted and now what Joss wanted? Of course I would. Therefore, they belong to Joss.

A Time For RevengeCollapse )

A Joyous Occasion.

January 7th, 2006 (03:05 am)

I'm Feeling: Image hosted by Photobucket.com snarky

*whispers* But what if it wasn't?

Okay, so technically, it was happy. Except for the lack of smiles during the ceremony.

But you know how you watch someone and you see that they want to smile but won't? That's what this was like. Stephanie and Derek looked like they were fighting not to smile and I felt like going "Hey! Up in front! It's your wedding, smile if you want and damn the consequences!"

Does that make me bitchy? Possibly. Eh.

Then of course, Raven and I couldn't help but stare at some of the stuff people wore and go ".....what?!" At one point, I pulled a Chandler:

Me: Could that skirt be any shorter?
Raven: *starts giggling*

Does that make me bitchy? Most likely. It also probably adds evidence to Raven's theory that we're going to hell. For more on that and on the wedding, check out her journal: jaded_icy_rose.

But the point of this is, talk about a wedding that had me going "Huh?" Because I swear, they had friends in high school who would've been back for break. Why weren't they there? I get that they probably wanted something kind of intimate. But out of 200 invites, only a few were friends. And I'm thinking if that's the case then just invite family. Because literally, only five of us were from high school. And those that were there, besides me and Raven, clearly either a) knew more people in both families or b) are just more comfortable in that situation. Because it was a bit uncomfortable only knowing the bride, groom, 2 bridesmaids, and 3 guests...that I didn't come with. And those guests most likely didn't remember me. So.

Not saying have a big old party either but if you're going to invite friends...well, at least introduce them to people so they feel comfortable. Which okay, not their priority because hello! Just married. So maybe that's a completely pointless tangent to go off on but I'm not always comfortable walking up to a random person and saying "Hi! I'm Thalia and you are?"

How about no?

Honestly, I don't mean to sound bitchy and critical of their wedding but little things like that got to me. Kind of felt like once we were there and said hi that there was no point in being there. As I put it "Wham, bam, thank you ma'am." was the feeling I got. Which isn't normally what you get when you go to a wedding. Or at least, I don't. Like I said, not expecting a full-blown "Give me like all the details of your life like so right now!" conversation because, again, just got married. But more than a "Hi, thanks for coming." and then having her walk away to talk to someone else for like 5 minutes would have been nice. (And even that "Hi, thanks for coming." got interrupted by the lady who came to talk to her about checks. Not asking, don't want to know.)

So, that may be overly critical or whatever. But it was just a bit of what I thought. Seriously. Where was the laughter, the "I'm so in love with you" looks, the smiles? They were gone. Just....poof!

Hmm...now I think to counter this, I'm going to make a post that's random and will probably give support to the theory that I'm insane. Which, hey, fun!

Thalia [userpic]

Huh. Interesting.

December 23rd, 2005 (12:00 am)

My mood: Image hosted by Photobucket.com confused

As Raven knows, I have this habit with the internet quizzes I take. What is it? I open the quiz in two different windows and take it in each window. One with my first gut instinct answers and then the other with my second choice answers. And I do this because I just know I'm going to be torn over the answers to some questions so I figure, I might as well see what I get with each ones, right?

But sometimes the results I get....
