DAY FOUR:

1. Money. As in, I have enough, but what is enough? What if it runs out? What will I do? What can I sell? Why do I have all this shit? I should sell this shit and save the money. I don't need about 7/8ths of the shit I have. Are you REALLY going to watch that copy of Rurouni Kenshin enough to justify the price?

2. I want to write this fic and that fic and that one too and ooooh, this fic and that one and I guess I should actually sell something again.

3. Does this make me look fat? Jesus, it doesn't I just AM fat. When did I get all that on my stomach? Why am I not still a ten? What the hell am I eating? I should exercise more. But well, I've been sick, but still, aren't you supposed to lose weight when you're sick, not gain? Wait, is that starve a cold, feed a flu? Or what? Gah. I bet these just shrunk after I washed them 85 times.

4. Who is going to die next? How do I prepare for that? I suppose if it's me, I should get everything ready. I better clean my basement. I could sell all that shit while I'm cleaning aaaaaaaand we go right back to number one.

5. What did I just step i—oh cat sick.

6. I could cook that. Who would I feed it to?

7. Something is conspicuous by its absence. Where is the kid? What is she doing? Oh dear god she's been quiet for twenty minutes. I'm in for it now.

7. Speaking of Always, I hate maxi pads.
8. I don't believe in baking with margarine.

Last year, I went to the UK. I went to London, Birmingham and Cardiff, as well as Manchester and Southampton. But I never finished the documentation of that trip, and I feel that I should, since I have two days worth of pics THAT INVOLVE TODAY'S BIRTHDAY BOY, NICHOLAS H. CRUENTUM, DIVA.

I PRESENT, CARDIFF, DAY TWO.

There are underpants. )
amand_r: (rps/it's barrowman country!)
This past weekend I took my kid to DC to see her family and also the pandas, who are like family. Like the shark the panda had millions of razor sharp teeth, which they use like a hacksaw to cut through bone, candy and fences. The Chinese believe that if you find a discarded panda tooth, you have the power to summons Godzilla!

Ahem.

So yeah, here was our trip, pictoral style:

VIVI AND MANDER GO TO DC (NOT DRAGON*CON) )

STAY TUNED FOR THE HALLOWEEN COOKIE DISASTER.

The point was that I needed a deadline and people to force me to meet it. There were no convenient fests, so here we are.

RULES:

1. So it's basically us all forcing ourselves to do this.
2. Minimum is 10K.
3. You have to include messy sandwiches, which can be a one liner, a whole scene full of them, a partial scene, or as my mother brought up, a messy sex sandwich, if you are so inclined. Thank you, Mum.
4. Posting starts on Sept 15. My goal is to all but done by Aug 30.

Author's Notes: Written for the March RPF Carnivale.
Summary: Sometime in all of it, Gareth's hand hits his and leaves Eve's hair, and he's pressing, squeezing a little, and John leans back and presses the back of his skull into the wall behind him. Maybe this stuff is kicking in, maybe it's been kicking in for a while, maybe they can blame it on alien sex pollen in the weed, Naughty Newport Nympho blend or something.

He doesn't really care if she finds him. It's the end of shooting, and he's been hiding in his trailer, rolling the joint back and forth in his fingers and wondering what would happen if he were to just smoke it right here. )
amand_r: (spartans dine)


1. God, season 4 of Angel is such a beautiful moral quagmire. On the other hand, the credits to the latest ep came on and the kidlet—

Kid: AR AR ARR!
Me: O_o? Pirates?
Kid: points to Mutant Enemy logo.
Me: Grrr arg.

2. Last night I ate about a pound of Good n Plentys, aka licorice pastilles, and now I can with a fair amount of surety say that I understand why Fred and George call them Puking Pastilles.

3. I wish we could turn more classic comic panels in to mock Jack Chick tracts.

4. There was cooking last Friday! )

5. The Tudors, The Tudors, The Tudors. Okay I never though I would say this, but I felt bad about Thomas Cromwell. I also felt bad for Anne Boleyn, too, so I guess that doesn't say much for me. I can tell that I'll be torrenting season 4 as it airs. DAMN YOU!

6. Dexter, book 3. What a fucking disappointment. )

7. The Sopranos--it's not like I haven't seen it before. But damn, I love that ending. And I'm not allowed to talk about it, because I don't want to spoil it for Little Brother.

8. Speaking of—Little Brother and I are collabing, and it's going to be AWESOME, and read by one person. LOLOR5.

Oh hallo. Are you here for something?

Of course you are.

What's your name? You're Candy?

Of course you are.

On behalf of Myself, [livejournal.com profile] cruentum, and degenerates everywhere, welcome to:


Thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] laurab1 for this gorgeous art!


Rules and link to the conversation post. )

Thanks so much. Have fun, pervs.
amand_r: (da bing)
FIRST:

1. It is the middle of the night, and you wake from a dead sleep because you have to pee. You shuffle to the bathroom and don't even bother turning on the light because you know the way. While there you realise that you have to use feminine protection. You also notice that you run out of loo roll. You unwrap the loo roll and pull the old roll from the spool, and then sit there, half awake, holding the spool in one hand and the new roll in the other.

The spool is, I repeat, the spool is NOT the feminine protection that you have yet to retrieve. No, I stopped myself before it got that far, but I did wonder why it was so big around whilst I held it.

There's a moral (sp—is that spelled right? Moral? Morel? No that's a mushroom. Moral reminds me of sorrel, which always make me think of High Chapparal. Chapparal? Chaparale? Fuck. I'll quit before I start questioning the spelling of "the" and "chair") here, but I don't know who it is.

2. Watching season one of the Tudors again. Why does everyone give each other brooches? From now on, everyone's getting brooches from me.

Side note: OH HAI THAR, EXTREME HOTTNESS THAT IS JOHN RHYS-MYERS' ABS. HOLY FUCK.

3. In cleaning my house, I am stunned by the sheer amount of junk I have, in the form of bits and baubles and things that I cannot simply throw in a box and label. I have baskets and small boxes of little things that I simply don't know what to do with—things I no longer want and haven't needed in the past three years, not enough to unpack them from the basement boxes in which a great deal of them reside. I find myself pitching large quantities of crap. I want to be as light as possible.

Likewise, wow, half-price books, you are awesome.

Additionally, in going through my shelves and boxes of books in the basement, I am slowly filling a box of books marked, simply, "unread". So this year, I shall endeavor to empty that box. It's filled with contemporary novels, non fiction, and a bunch of classic lit I never got to. Like some Dickens and Orczy and even one or two poets whose volumes I purchased and never finished. I would promise not to buy any more books until I finish these, but that is foolhardy and something to which I can never hold myself. So I shan't lie that way. But it's a goal—read more. Read well. Read smartly.

That said, I read the latest Hamilton Merry Gentry book, Divine Misdemeanours. Hey, it's in my ereader. OMG SPOILERS )

4. OH HAI. RPF/RPS CARNIVALE THIS WEEKEND. RIGHT THE FUCK IN THIS LJ. [livejournal.com profile] cruentum IS SO EXCITED HE'S ABOUT TO VIBRATE THROUGH THE INTERNETS. THEN HE WILL BE THE GHOST IN THE SHELL, AND HE'LL HAUNT YOUR ISP AND WHEN YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF WRITING YOUR THESIS, HE'LL REPLACE ALL THE IMAGES AND PIE CHARTS IN THE DOCUMENT WITH PICTURES OF JB'S ASS. YOU MIGHT BE AMUSED. YOUR THESIS ADVISOR AT THE ENTOMOLOGY DEPARTMENT PROBABLY WON'T BE. I think I already addressed this above, but whatevs.

Don't let that happen to you. Write for the Torchwood/Doctor Who RPF Carnivale.

5. So we have a little bit of snow in Pittsburgh this past month. So some mutherfuckers decide it's a great time to do some URBAN SKIING. My favorite is probably the Joe Montana bridge at about 4:00 to the end, and if you watch the credits you not only see some awesome FAIL, but you hear them make fun of Yinzertalk, which is always fun. (h/t [livejournal.com profile] emquilxy)

6. I'm in season two of the Sopranos again. How did I miss this gem? TONY: (frustrated and with finality) Cunnilingus and psychiatry have brought us to this.

Yes. Tony. Yes.

7. My TW season 4 file is corrupted or something, and it was my back up copy. I checked the original and it has no changes since last month. It's like Jesus doesn't want me to write TW anymore. Okay, Jesus.
amand_r: (the asian persuasion)
1. The response to the RPF is lolarious. Part of me is like, "Well, you knew it would be like this," and the rest of me is like, O_o? Not mad or anything, so much as intrigued in a dissecting animals way.

2. Porno or Pony? You decide. I got 5/12, so obviously I need to watch more porn, and also get me some more fishponies. (h/t [livejournal.com profile] kwanalicious)

3. Oh yeah, BTW:



[livejournal.com profile] laurab1 is love.

4. I am immensely proud to announce this: [livejournal.com profile] tw_itallchanges. Check it out, friends it, and then read along. The episodes are OUTSTANDING, and the construction of the entire season is amazing. I have an ep in here, co-written with mah fishpony, [livejournal.com profile] cruentum. Don't worry, we don't use any non-famous significant others. :P I think there might be puke, though.

5. [livejournal.com profile] lefaym asked me 5 questions. They are all about Tor--no wait, they are not. )

I suppose if you're dying to have me ask you questions, you can respond to this meme with a quote like, "NOT IN THE FACE! THE GOGGLES! THEY DO NOTHING!" AND I'LL ASK YOU 5. But I might have company, so I email fu will be weak, like Dumbledore after he drank all that manky water in HBP. Then he fell off that tower (SNAPE DID NOT KILL HIM! HAN SHOT FIRST!), and then everyone did that 21 wand salute into the sky or something. I forget. For me the pain is not very near, or some shit. Wow, four pop culture refs I one paragraph. I must be slipping.

Come on, if I referenced "Play Misty For Me", would any of you get it?

6. On my recommendation, [livejournal.com profile] cruentum watched Logan's Run. Something about this makes me lol. I also lol that he didn't email me afterwards and demand those two hours of his life back. Owaite, lemme get my TARDIS and we'll refund that to store credit. Haahahahahaha IF YOU SEE ANYTHING CALLED CAROUSEL, RUN, CRUE! YOUR HAND CLOCK IS FLASHING!
