I couldn't resist either...

This sounded like too much fun to pass up on...


The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something.
- I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well.

[eta: I got five now :)]

fic rec [SGA], and that photo meme

fic rec:
Breaking Up in Three Easy Clichés by xparrot
McKay/Keller; PG; spoilers for "The Last Man" and "The Shrine"; ~3,300 words

Xparrot says in the story notes that she doesn't like this pairing much and wrote this fic to come to terms with it; you couldn't tell from reading the story. As someone who does like the pairing, I'll be thrilled if the canon writers can pull off writing a relationship this believable and respectful to the characters.

gakked from all over my friends list: photo meme (Because I just bought a new camera)
# Take a picture of yourself RIGHT NOW.
# Don’t change your clothes, don’t fix your hair … just take a picture.
# Post that picture with NO editing.
# Post these instructions with your picture.

linkage: McCain: The Mavericking Maverick Mavericks More
The story of an aging warrior, dragging himself from a restful retirement to fight once more: possibly senile, definitely psychotic, obsessed with reclaiming past glories with no thought to the consequences.
Photos of McCain with caps from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. Oddly fitting. Very funny (in a rather chilling way).

Back at work as of now, I guess. Well, after I hit 'post' I am. I spent a large part of last week prettying up the apartment while my roommate was on vacation. Cleaning, painting my room, cleaning some more, chasing the damn moths out of the kitchen*, doing eight loads of laundry, cleaning. I even picked flowers for the kitchen table. :) Now I know why our apartment normally doesn't look really really nice: if you want a really really nice looking apartment, it's a full-time job.

GIP that got out of control ;)

1) look, new icon ^_^
2) kwizbit asked the 34 questions meme, which I filled out and then promptly forgot to post:
Collapse )
3) I got some more fic to rec, it's just gonna take a while to assemble and code properly. Plus I'm in the process of compiling all my previous Bones fic recs in one masterlist. That takes way longer than I thought; I'm sorting them by length, more or less. At the moment it's still looking chaotic.
4) Any manga/doujinshi artists whom I can email with a technical question?
5) Vid Rec: The Friends intro, only with the characters from BtVS :O) [edit: vid removed thanks to the philistines at Fox]
5a) Why won't Firefox open YouTube links? I always have to resort to IE for those vids to work.

I got tagged by yhlee for this meme.
RULES "Once you've been tagged, you have to write a blog with 8 facts/things/habits about yourself, saying who tagged you. In the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. No tag backs."

Okay, let me think ...Collapse )

Now I'm tagging you, you, you, you, you, and you. Consider yourself tagged if you feel like playing. :)

so, no one has that InFANity video? Drats.

Meh. Waiting for feedback, meetings scheduled for monday and tuesday... which left me strangely unmotivated all weekend, even though the deadlines are looming and there're enough parts I can work on even so. Just, I find it hard to concentrate. Hopefully the meetings will be fruitful and I'll get to be more productive in the course of the week.

These Japanese smileys which pop up everywhere... ever wondered (as I have) what the hell they mean? Here's a fun thread. Yes, I can smile in Japanese now. ^_^

aaand, another bit of randomness... what's up with the UK Paramount Comedy Channel's incessant censoring? I can maybe understand if they censor the shows broadcast in the afternoon, but they're [bleep]ing with everything. And since when is [bleep] a nasty word? Or [bleep], or [bleep]? Seriously. Sometimes they're cutting whole lines of dialogue and leaving the viewer to wonder what the audience is laughing about.

For those who speak German: a friend gave me this link The story of a "hacker" who was apparently so stupid that he hacked his own computer.

Oh, and selenak has posted meta on Angel the character. As intriguing as her Connor essay.

I have Bones withdrawal.

And finally, the Collapse )

a quick update to the ten things meme, as it is apparently not that uncommon to fall asleep in class... tsktsk

6. fallen asleep during art history, feet on the table in front of me, right in front of the lecturer
6. have been an extra for a day on 'Soldier, Soldier', a British drama series about a regiment that gets stationed around the world. One season was set in Münster, where I live. Me and my friends played the participants in an Aikido beginners class, and our job was mainly to pretend to suck so the guy who played the teacher would look better by comparison. (He knew zero about Aikido, but he did a fairly decent job faking it.)

Easiest money I ever made!

eta: I'll never forget that dialogue; it's burned into my brain: "I can feel the Ki flowing through your body." *arghpain*

eta2: Wow, this one I'd totally repressed: "In Aikido, there's no right or wrong. There's only ::meaningful pause:: discovery."
