Newsflash: I suck, and I'm a doormat and I can't say no. I keep taking other people's shifts at work, so I'm working almost every day of the week and have been since the end of November (I took one for tomorrow which was supposed to be my day off but she said she'd take my Friday shift but she's working Friday night too, so I don't know if that's legit, I'm going to bug my boss tomorrow.)

What this means for you: Those of you who have requests will get them before January, but probably not before Christmas. I'm working almost every day of the week, and between now and Sunday I don't have a ton of time to myself, and probably won't in the following week either (I'll have you know I work 7:30 AM the day after Christmas, 5 AM the day after that and then until 1 AM Wednesday night, and then the next two days, blargh). The holidays fuck me up. I'm going to try and post them all at once so I'm not spamming people, so expect them in the days between Christmas and New Years.
michals: (hellz yeah)
The Ethan/Brandt MI:IV fic at AO3. Tweaked the ending so it doesn't completely suck. I am having issues with this pairing, I want more of it so bad, but the only other fic I've found is Brandt/Benji, which makes me squint my eyes like Fry in my confusion.
michals: (Elrond is confused...)
How the BALLS is it only 5 days until Christmas? I am not ready. I might have all my shopping done but I am not mentally prepared for it.

(I think one of the problems is working at a retail place that puts up Christmas stuff in October. It never really felt like Halloween, or Thanksgiving either.)

I have a candle that smells like brownie mix. It also has a wood wick so it crackles like a fireplace. It's...pretty great.

I need to tweak the ending of that fic I posted last night, I reread it today and it's just kind of dumb, haha. I made the mistake of writing it after I took two knockout pills so by the time I got to that part I was barely keeping my head up.

I told you guys I may have to start this. Potentially really tiny spoilers and probably really incorrect info about rock climbing.

I need not to do this )

I'm sorry, I'm having some serious issues. I watched Collateral tonight which might have been a mistake because he is...very, very good in it.

Also, I really need some Ethan Hunt/Brandt from Mission Impossible IV fic, like, now. I may have to write it...
michals: (Riverdance!)
I've watched two movies today where Tom Cruise has to put up with stupid people who really just need to shut up and let him deal with shit.

Rewatching Sherlock is making me stupid excited about the new series. Hopefully it will go up for download right after airing and I don't wait several months like last time, haha.

Also, weird question: I used that two-weeks free of paid account last week and immediately regretted it because I realized my cuts didn't lead to the standard LJ format, and now it's staying in my stylesheet style. Fics are much easier to read the other way, right? I'm debating whether I ever really want to go back to a paid account when I don't use that many icons anymore any way and if I like the other stylesheet better. I guess it'll depend how much money I have after the holidays, haha.
michals: (oh *angst*)
Alright, I promise this will be the last, or at least close to last, post I make about this as I realize I have been very melodramatic about this whole thing and am probably annoying the piss out of everyone. If that's true, this post won't be much better.

(Spoilers for those who don't know yet)

Why Boardwalk is especially depressing to me )
michals: (hellz yeah)
If anyone's interested, I'm having a Maurice Day over at my Tumblr . Just posting pics and videos and random nonsense.

I'm starting to think my stomach hurts because of stress more than anything else actually. That is how worked up I get about stupid things, gah what is wrong with me?
michals: (Jack's crazy)
I've got cramps, food poisoning, and I'm t-minus 31 hours away from having my heart broken.

You guys might remember our yearly tradition of giving books to my cousins every Christmas, well I'm looking for some more ideas if you guys got 'em. Basically whatever you think would work, unless it's something that may get me in trouble with my aunts and uncles, haha. The giftees include:

The oldest girl, med student, incredible writer, sophomore in college. Good books from the past include the Fables graphic novels, the Georgia Nicholson books.

The second oldest girl, high school senior, incredible actress and singer (seriously she sounds like Judy Garland). Good books from the past include Water for Elephants, Fables.

The oldest boy, high school junior, very very smart, but stuck with shitty parents, not a huge reader. Good books included Hellboy, The Golden Compass.

Second oldest boy, high school freshman, I love him but he’s not the brightest, more interested in sports and girls, not really a reader at all. Good books include…??? No idea, I can’t say for certain he’s read any of the past ones.

The twin girls, 13, voracious readers, love animals, still pretty childlike. Good books included the Chronicles of Narnia, The Hunger Games, Eva Ibbotson.

Any ideas?
michals: (little girl in a big world)
Ugh, life is a hateful void of ass that kills the things you love with its assy-ness.
michals: (Yay grapes!)
Dude, chocolate chips + Nacho Cheese Doritos = awesome.

(For those of you whole follow me on Tumblr you're probably aware that I'm super annoying, for those who don't, I apologize that you have to learn this lesson now.)

Ahem, ahem, ahem.

If you haven't given me a prompt or something soon and want one, you still have time! I'm giving myself til the end of December like usual to get them done. I keep getting called in to work on flex shifts lately, where before I never got called in, so I'm surprisingly busy. And I have to take the car into Midas and get my damn heat fixed tomorrow. Blargh.

In other news, Nicholas Sparks makes me want to punch babies. Why would anyone want to read those stories much less sit through those movies, even if they do feature a shirtless Zac Efron.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] entwashian, natch.

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:
who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

Well my mom just told me the new episode of Boardwalk was really good. That's nice but WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT A WEEK TO FIND OUT IF MY HEART'S BEEN BROKEN.

Why all my fandoms are fucking depressing:

House --> continually ignores potential slash relationship*, forces non-chemistry het pairing, generally turns to shit

Smallville --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, forces non-chemistry het pairing, generally turns to shit

Psych --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, forces non-chemistry het pairing, generally turns to shit

PotC --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, one of the best characters dies in the most horrible way possible and no one cares

HIMYM --> forces non-chemistry het pairing, generally turns to shit

The Office --> loses best character, generally turns to shit

Big Bang Theory --> main character is woefully abused by all other characters, annoying character becomes even more annoying, generally turns to shit

Doctor Who --> continualy ignores potential slash relationship, forces non-chemistry het pairing, everyone dies all the time

Torchwood --> one of the best character dies in the most horrible way possible and no one cares, generally turns to shit

Merlin --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, forces non-chemistry het pairing, generally turns to shit

Star Trek --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, forces non-chemistry het pairing

Angel --> everyone dies all the time

Velvet Goldmine --> everyone hates everyone

Harry Potter --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, forces non-chemistry het pairing

Dead Like Me --> features one of the most annoying female characters in the history of ever, everyone dies all the time (haha)

Inception --> dude might be in limbo or dead or something who knows

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead --> everyone dies all the time

Sherlock BBC --> continually ignores potential slash relationship, James Wilby isn't going to be Sebastian Moran

Boardwalk Empire --> ...sob.

Maurice --> okay this one's actually alright though it's depressing if you remember there's a fucking war on the horizon

*read: either ignores the potential for that kind of relationship all together, or treats it like a joke because "lol they're not gay you stupid fangirl, who cares if it makes sense and would make the show/movie/series better".

I'm so fucking depressed now. I feel stupid but I'm actually crying. This is when I hate fandom and wish I didn't care so much. God, I really fucking care about this too.
