It seems like I always start to write up posts and then something happens and I never end up finishing them and/or posting them.

  • First some TV notes:
    • Finally caught up on the last three episodes of Merlin. This series has really been boring me. I find myself skipping through episodes or being completely distracted during them. I'm hoping the final episodes will turn into something and bring me back, but at this point I'm really in it to keep up with fandom, which I still love, and for the boys. 
    • And I'll be honest...instead of actually watching Episode 10, I just read [livejournal.com profile] frantic_allonsy's recap. I don't like the Arthur/Gwen relationship at all. I have nothing against the canon of it. It's just that the way it's written doesn't really make any sense. I have no idea why those characters would ever want to be together. They have the least to do with each other out of anyone on the show, except maybe Merlin and Uther and even that makes more sense. Not to mention the lack of chemistry just makes their scenes painful and unwatchable. A whole episode of it was a bit more than I could take.
    • FRINGE. Last week's episode was MINDBLOWING. At least for me. I love the mythology on this show and in this episode in particular. As much as I love our Olivia, I don't find the episodes in the alternate universe as compelling. I appreciate what the show is doing with the every other episode scenario, but that universe just doesn't work for me the way it seems to for others out there. 
    • For all I'm not a Castle fan, which is to say I don't actually like the show, this season seems to be a lot weaker. I usually can get through the episodes no problem. It's a distraction, but this season I'm finding it very hard to get through them at all. Just wondering what actual fans think of it. 
    • A couple weeks ago I spent my days re-watching episodes (okay seasons) of Roseanne on youtube. This week it's Wings. I kind of have this idea to do a where are they now? type of thing for those characters. Because I've always wondered. 
    • I am DYING for that Simon Amstell DVD to come out so I can get my hands on a rip of it. I'm pretty sure it will complete my life. 

As for RL, it's been kind of up and down lately. Ranty rant rant.  ) 

I'm trying to ignore all of that insanity and focus on other things. Tomorrow we have to bring Davey to the vet to get fixed, but then it's HARRY POTTER at midnight. Saturday Eve and Dan are coming to stay and then Sunday we're going to the Brooklyn Bowl to see the McLovins play the song they wrote with a couple of the guys from Phish. And then I think we're going to go on a stoney cupcake tour of Brooklyn. Monday I go back to Connecticut for a dentist appointment and Thanksgiving. 

I need to stop typing now. And do something productive. Like stare at my desktop, which makes me smile like a loon. :DDDDDD
First a letter:

Dear Colin Morgan, I love your face but I severely dislike your short hair. No you know what? I take that back. I HATE it. Really really hate it. It's awful and I want to kill it. KTHX Love, Me

Now on to other things:

1.) ENVY ON THE COAST FAREWELL PT 1 TONIGHT!  Why part 1? Because I am insane and when they added a second show I bought a ticket to that as well. 

Anybody ever gone to a concert by yourself? This is the first time I'm doing it, but I expect it to happen a lot more in the future so we'll see how it goes. I really need friends who care about more of my music. 

2.) My life makes no sense to me right now. I haven't even been in the city for a week yet and I already feel like my life has changed into something slightly more adult. It feels right though. Eric and Lance are redoing their apartment and it looks amazing. We all hate this phrase, but we do all feel like we're growing up. 

3.) We're still us though. We're still ridiculous and tell that's what she said jokes all night long. And we've for some reason also reverted back to college where we're drinking cheap vodka and scraping down the res on our bowls. Oh and doing dirty madlibs and watching awful 90s gay porn. 

4.) Like I said. My life makes no sense. 

5.) Is anybody else feeling withdrawals from TBBT? Or do I just rewatch it too much? It's seriously like my drug...well my other drug. I have a feeling that show is going to go down in my archives as the Golden Girls of my generation. Or at least the way I feel about it. Could watch it on repeat forever and not get sick of it, just want more.

6.) Just came across a DVDRip of Wild Target. YAY for more Rupert Grint and Martin Freeman in my life. 

My last four entries have been flailing over Stark. So here's something substantial. Sort of. The last couple weeks have been mostly filled with lots of weed, the AI cast album and baseball. But I have some awesome stuff coming up so here's a rundown.
  • April 27 (Tomorrow...shhh it's today) - Hole (NYC)
  • May 2 - American Idiot (NYC)
  • May 8 - Angels and Airwaves (Connecticut)
  • June 10 - Jay Brannan (NYC)
  • September 16 (My best friend's birthday) - Lady Gaga(Connecticut)
    •  It's gonna be just like the Spice Girls. Shitty seats where we're so shitfaced it's not gonna matter. 

I'm leaving in the morning for the city and staying until Monday since it would be stupid to go back and then come back again a day later. Eric works during the day so I'll probably spend most of my time searching for used book stores and/or reading in the park or stalking. There's a good chance of record buying as well. 

Anybody else got anything good coming up? Besides school ending/graduation for you lucky few. 

Well I might have Scabies. How's your Friday going?

My two best friends officially have it and I've shared towels and bedding with them. No itching or spots yet, but I'll give it another week or two. Hopefully I'm clean. 

How is this my life?
Just saw on Facebook that my best friend from ages 9-14 got engaged tonight. Seriously every time I see these people are getting married or having babies I just think of how unhappy they're going to be in a couple years. Though they're all the non-ambitious type anyway it's kind of sad to follow in your parents footsteps like that. It's something I promised myself I'd never do. 

On a happier note my obsession with Stark and American Idiot have reached all kinds of new levels of ridiculousness. I'm sure some of you understand. LOL If I don't get my hands on that cast album soon there's going to be issues. 

Not much else to report. I keep starting entries and then never finishing them. So for some bullet points.
  • I finally got around to watching Stargate: Universe a while back. It's kind of awful and not the way that Atlantis was awful, but still worth it. Cliche characters and some new obsession with religion I'm not entirely comfortable with. The whole sexualization of the verse is also something that's not working for me. It's coming back on Friday and I'll probably keep watching just cause I like the tidbits about the other characters and Michael Shanks has an appearance on this run which I'm looking forward to.
  • Speaking of Michael Shanks...does anyone have that gif of him and Ben Browder at Comic Con a few years back. Yeah you know the one I'm talking about...
  • I've been on an original slash kick the last week or so. Which means I've been staying up until ridiculous hours of the night and sleeping even crazier ones. And my books have been put on the back burner, which hasn't stopped me from buying more.
  • My friends and I got fucked up on vodka and weed the other night and danced in the rain. It's one of those defining life moments. We're also decided we really early 90s. Though that might be all the Courtney Love speaking.
  • I've decided on my next tattoo. It's pretty much going to be something like THIS somewhere on the back of my neck. I'm pretty excited about it. 
  • The Generation Kill Anon Kink meme has brought out aaaaallllll the Brad/Ray shippers. Apparently there's a lack. LOL I never noticed but that's cause it's mostly a no-go area for me. 
  • I WANT THIS SO FUCKING BAD. It's pretty much my favorite shirt ever. The fact that I'll never see it on him again makes me so sad. :(
Apparently I had a lot more to say than I realized. 

I also seem to have finally become the victim of LJ's notification issue, in that I'm not getting them. I'm surprised it took this long.

I figured it's about time I make an entry. Just a couple things have happened recently.

I had a little issue with my bank which was super fun. I get $800 transfered into my checking account from my investment fund every month and instead of it being transfered in it was being transfered out. Hence some nice letters about how I was overdrawn by over $1700. It's fixed now. All I have to do is go back to the bank and hopefully get the fees reversed. 

My friend Eric LOVES Courtney Love so we're going to see Hole in at the end of April in NYC. It's actually the day the album comes out so it should be interesting. I'm pretty sure the reason they asked me to go was so I could get them to the front of the stage. Sometimes my crowd merging skills come in handy. 

I was supposed to go to my friend's Superheroes and Villains party last night but I was ridiculously hungover from the night before. This is why I shouldn't go several weeks without drinking and smoking heavily. We did have a majorly in depth conversation about god and all kinds of things. Sometimes I feel like I'm alone with the way that I think about things, and then I have a conversation like that and it makes me feel a lot better about things.

I'm pretty sure I'm going into the city tomorrow to spend a couple days with Eric. He got his old job back so I want to go see him before he goes back to work. This also means I can hopefully use his computer to fix mine. Spider Solitaire may be getting me through this experience, but I'd forgotten how fucking annoying anti-virus software is. 

If anyone is looking for an awesome international site to buy used books I recently came across Biblio.com. Half.com has been my go to for a while now, but this site is so much better. Instead of people selling their books, this is independent bookstores. The selection and the prices are usually a whole lot better. 

I inadvertently started myself on a Stargate rewatch. I know a lot of people have issues with Seasons 9 and 10, but they're actually kind of my favorite. I've moved onto Atlantis now, which I like a whole lot less, but it has Kavan Smith who I love a whole lot more. Someone please give that guy his own show. 
Did you ever have a conversation with someone that completely changed the way you look at your relationship? 

My friends and I have been having issues the last couple months and mostly unspoken ones at that. Things have came out into the open today though. My camera had all the pictures from New Year's on them and because most of them aren't fit for public consumption my friends want me to send the pics to them. For a normal person it wouldn't be a problem, but my computer is an asshole, especially when it comes to iPhoto and doing anything with the pictures on my computer.

I just didn't want to deal with it right away and I think my friends were completely overreacting about it. But apparently it's my responsibility and I'm being selfish by not wanting to deal with my asshole of a computer. It turned it to a conversation about how basically the reason that my friends don't call me to hang out is that I'm ungrateful for the fact that because I don't drive they have to come pick me up and shuttle me everywhere. Which is fine. I understand why they feel that way, but it wouldn't kill them to actually say that instead of me thinking that they don't want me around. 

I'm not ungrateful, things have just gotten complacent in that regard. No I don't drive, but it's never really been an issue before and if it was no one ever said anything. I hate when people don't talk about this kind of stuff. If you have an issue you have to voice it otherwise things are never going to change. 

It'll be interesting to see what happens from here. I feel better about the fact that I'm not losing my friends of over 10 years, but I don't know what to think about the fact that they couldn't tell me that they felt that way.

Days 4-8

Dec. 9th, 2009 12:29 am
Just catching up. I was in NYC all weekend without my computer and then I was just lazy Sunday night and yesterday. So lots of insanity today. Still haven't watched Merlin. I'll get to it tomorrow, maybe.

The weekend was fine. Weather was shitty all day Saturday. Sadly no snow, just rain. And there's nothing on the ground here. Boo. Almost makes me wish I was still in Vermont. We barely left the apartment. Got ridiculously stoned Saturday morning and then again that night. Two weeks without weed makes me crazy. Or whatever strain that was. All of my insecurities came out. I apparently have a lot of problems with The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Oh well.

Day 01 → Your favourite song
Day 02 → Your favourite movie
Day 03 → Your favourite television program


Day 04 → Your Favourite Book )

Day 05 → Your Favourite Quote )

Day 06 → Whatever Tickles Your Fancy )

Day 07 → A Photo That Makes You Happy )
Day 08 → A Photo That Makes You Angry/Sad )

I could post Day 9 too since it technically already is, but I think I've given you enough.
I woke up this morning to my flist being overtaken by Colin and Bradley. This makes me so happy you have no idea.

I love Bradley's morning voice. And those shorts.

Colin in his beanie made me almost ruin a pair of underwear.

I just finished watching yesterday's episode. My computer was acting up yesterday, but seems to be okay today so I finally managed to download it successfully since I slept through the broadcast. Woe Black Friday for messing up my sleep.

For a straight girl I really hate het. Or maybe I just hate it in Merlin. Lancelot come back PLEASE!!!! For the sake of the het on this show. It needs you.

Silly Bradley is fantastic. They need to give him more physical comedy. The facial expressions alone.

Why are all the manservants on this show gay and magical? Are they trying to tell us something?

I don't have much more to say than that. Bradley being ridiculous was the best part. The het was not.

I need more icon space...

Black Friday was generally horrible this year. My mom was in a bad mood because she didn't get her TV and then she had an issue checking out which is always oh so fun. Then she was mad because I'm too negative or something. Which fine whatever. Sorry I have opinions and like to express them. My defining personality traits are sarcasm and boylove. Either one is apparently going to cause problems.

I ended up sleeping most of Friday, staying up until like 4am watching The Big Bang Theory and then sleeping all of yesterday. Now I'm on a Wings kick. But since I only own the first two seasons I'm trying to download the rest. I can only find Rapidshare links and it's being an asshole.

My Black Friday loot:
Gilmore Girls: Seasons 1, 6, & 7
Veronica Mars: Season 1 (For $9 and I didn't even know it was gonna be on sale!)
Gossip Girl: Seasons 1&2
House: Season 4 (I have now bought the first 4 seasons all on Black Friday)
Weeds: Season 4 (Also all on Black Friday)
Supernatural: Season 3 (This too)
The Dark Knight, The Proposal and He's Just Not That Into You

I also bought a 20 piece T-Fal kitchenware for 50% off & a hoodie for $10

Then I came home and spent another $100 on Amazon, which was:
Supernatural: Season 4
Fringe: Season 1
Maude: Season 1 (Yes I love Bea Arthur)
Charmed: Season 2
Iron Man, Young Frankenstein, Underworld: Evolution, Star Trek, GI Joe, & Zack & Miri Make a Porno

I would have bought more, but I needed to contain myself.

Did all my GK people see the pic Jon Huertas posted on his Twitter last night? I looooovvveee these boys. And don't tell anyone but I did mistake Stark for my friend Max. I wish I had a good picture of him so I could show you all what I'm talking about. Seriously it's ridiculous.
Borrowed this from [info]its_elaine.

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out.


Would you like to learn something about my life...? )


Okay I have to go shower and have some coffee or something before I have to go over to my Mom's and eat massive amounts of food for Thanksgiving. Which my hungover stomach will totally appreciate. I'm starving right now.

NEW QI TONIGHT!!!!! This excites me to no end.
atticlibrarian: (Merlin/Arthur boyfriends)
Bradley and Colin's roadtrip of love is going to be EPIC! If you haven't seen the pics over at [livejournal.com profile] bradleycolin you need to do so right NOW. I need lots of porn right now.

Spotlight has decided to index my harddrive and is thus making my computer run ridiculous slowly. It's not helping my mood.

I still have no idea what's going on with my friends. All i know it's fucking depressing and very quickly returning me to the depressive state I was in a year ago and was just beginning to get over. UUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

And I hate the movie ELF and the fact that it reenters my life every year,
I'm getting my wisdom teeth out in about an hour so please excuse any insanity you see may see from me in the next couple days. I have no idea what kind of drugged up state I'll be in.

But it's all okay because today is

ALEXANDER SKARSGARD'S BIRTHDAY!!!!!!


(made not by me :D)

OH AND I'M SEEING BLINK ON SATURDAY!!





I don't know what kind of karma I have, but apparently it's not good. Ever since we had that Internet outage last week my laptop has been fucked up. I don't ever use Firefox unless I'm creating PDFs and it was being such an asshole for no reason. Then iTunes decided it didn't want to open and wouldn't tell me why, it just failed to open and gave me a blank error message. Last night I was trying to fix it because I was planning on making some CDs for my cousins. For some reason when I tried to download iTunes it wouldn't do it, so I restarted my computer and then it wouldn't fully reboot. It still won't. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to convince my mom to take me to the Apple store on Thursday after my dentist appointment so that I can see what's wrong with it.

UGHHHHH! I don't know why these things always happen to me.

I also woke up this morning at like 5:15 feeling like crap. I don't know if it's my gallbladder or what, but it's not a good thing since we're going to Coney Island today. But the really exciting thing is that I'm staying in the city because I'm going to see JAY BRANNAN tomorrow night!!! I've been attempting to do this for over a year and I'm sooooo pumped it's finally happening.

Full report when I get back home. And then it's off to Baltimore to see the Red Sox play the Orioles. It wasn't my choice, obviously, or we'd be seeing the Yankees but no one cares what I think.

A rant...

Jul. 26th, 2009 02:43 pm
I'm well aware that I'm the black sheep of my family. I'm okay with it. I just wish my family would realize that fact and let me be. Just because I'm the oldest cousin by 10 years does NOT mean that I have to be an example. Frankly the world could use a little more blunt honesty and so could this family. I'm sick of being the only one who sees that and then gets yelled at for doing something about it. 

I think the fact that I don't go off on my step-father when he makes his daily homophobic comment would be enough. 

Also I hate my grandmother. She needs to get off her pedestal and realize we're not the people she wants us to be and we're never going to be. I don't believe in your religious fiction, I swear, I drink, I party, I'm honest, I'm blunt, I'm sarcastic and I say what I'm thinking and that's never going to change. Your husband understood that, why can't you? 

If you want me to be an example to your kids, how about this lesson? Don't change who you are because other people have a problem with it. This world is filled with way too many people who play into societies wishes and you don't have to be one of them. This world is never going to change if no one challenges the status quo. Talk about politics and the state of the world and realize how fucked up it is. Don't be simple, don't be complacent and don't let others get away with bigoted remarks. Don't censor yourself and don't let yourself be lulled into a false sense of reality. One day you'll be in the real world where everything isn't apple pie. Realize it now and educate yourself. Question what you're told. Don't censor yourself and don't encourage it in other places. Talk to people, argue with them, open their minds and have them open yours. 

People may not like you for it, but it's usually because they see something in you that they want to be and are too afraid to do anything about or they're just afraid you might burst the little bubble they've built.

I hope nothing too exciting happened in the world of LJ today. My Internet has been down all day. Damn you cablevision!!

But I'm on my way to the airport with my grandmother to pick up my aunt and cousins who are flying in from Wyoming.

Oh and I got a check in the mail today for 256k from my dad's estate. WHOOOOO!!!

After the rollercoaster that was Torchwood this week (that ended up to be one that made you vomit all over your shoes) I need a repeat performance of those special brownies from last weekend or a very large drink


Possibly both...

My friends and I just enjoyed a stoney ride to McDonald's accompianied by S Club 7.

We're so classy. LOL

Posted via LiveJournal.app.

My friend and I just spent the last 10 minutes sending pictures back and forth of Pete Wentz's ass and dick and him making out with boys. And then he told me he's been jerking off to pictures of Mr. Wentz since he was 17.

I love this boy to death. LOL

I also love a boy in tight skinny jeans and eyeliner. 
Whoo! Got Generation Kill and the first season of The Big Bang Theory in the mail today. Watching the video diaries for Generation Kill, which I've never seen before. 

And HOLY SHIT Alex is skinny. 

Thunderstorms are threatening and I get to stand outside from 6 until 10ish at Relay for Life. I'm not walking, thank god. 

I should really be showering and getting ready, not sitting her blinding myself with the pretty. *sigh*

I've been in like a month long Twitter conversation with Larry Sullivan. For those of you who are gay movie buffs, he plays Alan in The Trip.

Also I had an awesome weekend in the city. I'm on my way home from Target with my grandmother, great grandmother and aunt. It was not a wise decision. I'm too tired to deal with my grandmother's insanity right now.

I am going to crash on the couch in front of my tv and spend the night with Merlin and True Blood. :D
