Because it is limerick day
At least, according to LJ
I think I shall write,
Give me prompts and I might -
A word or two with which to play.

Dreamwidth! Is now out of closed beta and into open beta.

Go here to see what's changed from livejournal.

And I have invite codes! Five of them. Let me know if you want one, and I shall email it to you.

Meme stolen from many, many people. I might or might not do eight consecutive days of happiness, but eight days of happiness I shall do.

Sometimes it seems as if every movie ever made has in it an actor who has also been in Doctor Who. I like this. This amuses me. This makes me happy.

Today I finished watching the first half of Hogfather, which is brilliant and happy-making in its own right. In it there is a particularly creepy (psychopathic, blond, would sooner kill people than look at them) assassin called Teatime (not pronounced teatime). I adore him; I just don't want to be in the same universe as him.
He is played by the same actor as Elton Pope, from the Doctor Who episode Love and Monsters, who is not creepy at all. I fully intend to rewatch it with Teatime in mind.

And now I shall attempt (for the first time) embedding relevant youtube vids under the cut )

Do, or do not. There is no spoon.

I might be in an icon-making mood; request an icon, and find out.

Still lurking. But Dreamwidth has the first release of the crossposter out now, which means I can crosspost to my livejournal as a default setting now. Which is awesome. *flails*

We've been promised bugs, of course. This is closed beta, after all, and watching bugs get squished is half the fun.

I have a Dreamwidth account! This is cause for wild celebration!

I asked for prompts, to have my wicked way with, and got them - so here be the prompt responses. The others I haven't written yet but plan to; they will, therefore, be the not-so-prompt responses.

[livejournal.com profile] kaylemalinza suggested many things, of which I ended up using herself, and a park bench wearing a lamp shade. This makes about as much sense as you'd expect, considering.

Kaylie and the Bench )


[livejournal.com profile] oneiriad suggested "zombie apocalypse meets Sophie." Sophie being, for those tragically uninformed of the fact, Commodore Norrington's wig.

Sophie and the (Zombie) Apocalypse )

There was a wasp in the salt pig. I don't expect to find wasps in salt pigs. *squishes*

The monarch butterfly caterpillars are determined to kill themselves off. They've tried death-by-praying-mantis, death-by-falling-off-a-leaf, death-by-eating-the-middle-of-the-leaf-while-standing-on-the-end-of-the-leaf, and death-by-Boojum (softly and suddenly vanishing away). They have succeeded. There are still a few left, though. *has hopes*

For crossword purposes, mum looked up the word Taiga in the dictionary, and (possibly because it's pronounced tiger) announced to the room at large that it meant carnivorous forest. The room at large said, wait, what? and discovered that she'd meant coniferous. I was, of course, left with carnivorous forests floating around in my brain and insinuating themselves into my Doctor Who fanon.

Haven't been writing lately, so I can't tell if I still have writer's block or if I just haven't been writing. GIVE ME PROMPTS? I shall poke at them gingerly with a stick, and maybe write a sentence or two?

* Describe me in one word, just one single word. Positive or negative

* Leave your word in a comment, before looking at what words others have used

* Copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people describe you when limited to one word.

I just spent about an hour giggling over watching the first episode of Merlin. And yes, the episode was only three quarters of an hour, but I had to rewatch bits so I could laugh at them some more*.
And I was not watching it for the slash. I was going to be watching it for the slash, but no - I found myself watching it for Merlin's irrepressible smile and complete lack of survival instincts. He has none. Really, really none. It's ridiculous.
It's delightful.
And I love Gaius and Uther and Gwen and Morgana and Arthur and the Dragon and... fine. Also the slash.

Most rewatched line:
Merlin: No. No way. No. No, there must be another Arthur, because this one's an idiot.
SlashDragon: Perhaps it's your destiny to change that.


_______
* And then I had to rewatch other bits, because I'd forgotten to notice that Eve Myles (Torchwood's Gwen) was playing the villainess (I'm terribly bad at recognising people, when I'm not concentrating on it). And she was! It was brilliant. It had the effect of giving me even more reasons to laugh at it - and I thought the scene where she was flirting with Giles Uther was crack before.

I. Curtains have been sentenced to hang by the neck until dead. Or at least hang.

II. Carpet has spent most of the day sprinkled with flea-powder, because I finally snapped and decided I was sick of being an all you can eat (if you don't mind dying afterwards) flea-buffet.

III. Have pretty much felt like doing nothing at all, lately. I blame the heat, for being hot. *melts*

IV. The universe continues to conspire to make me watch Merlin; apparently Doctor Who casting spoiler ). This is on top of the snark, the extreme slashability, [livejournal.com profile] classics_lover's recommendation, the migration of several of my favourite SGA authors, and Giles being King Uthur. And I just noticed that Eve Myles (Torchwood's Gwen) has a guest role in one of the episodes. *grins*

V. Have - now and again - been bits reading Lewis Carrol's "The Hunting of the Snark" out loud to myself in maniacal tones. This has so far not failed to amuse.

VI. Still addicted to virtual pets (UniCreatures being the latest - yay!). I'm a little appalled at myself; require higher brain function they decidedly do not.

Cryptic crossword clue of the day - not a hard one, I just thought it was fun.

Clue: Motoring investigation reveals a body (7 letters)
Answer: )

Things I haven't told you I'm in love with lately, because I'm uncomunicative like that:

Supernatural* - Dean/Castiel
Merlin** - Merlin/Arthur
Avatar: The Last Airbender - Everyone. And Jet/Zuko
Transformers***
Labyrinth - Jareth/Sarah

* I have not watched Supernatural
** Or Merlin
*** Or Transformers (movie version or otherwise). This effectively illustrates how important it is to me to be familiar with the canon of something before reading the fanfic.

Also sorbet (sugar + water + fruit-pulp + egg-white + frozenness). I have made sorbet and watched sorbet and eaten sorbet and realised that there wasn't enough fruit around to make more sorbet and made more anyway using jam just to see if it worked, which it did, but it tasted like jam and that was extremely wierd.

Being an eternally incomplete list of fics, fandoms and authors I am madly in love with. Because I wanted one.
With emphasis on the incompletion.
For my own reference, and everyone else's too.

Note: posting this now, that I might play around with editing it whenever I feel like it.

Random recs run rampant... )

With, y'know, less of the bloody and more of the bold and resolute. Not that I ever do New Year’s Resolutions, but I was going to be resolving anyway so I thought I might as well. Thus:

In 2009 I shall...
1. Cultivate stubbornness. Apply it to, among other things, my resolutions.
2. Listen to my whims. Obey them without procrastination (or thought – too much logic is illogical and sucks the fun out of life). This includes everything from causing weed-heaps to vanish with just the power of my mind and applied physical force, to looking up things on the internet when I think it might be interesting to look things up on the internet (rather than some unspecified time in the future), to writing down plot-bunnies/drabble-fragments without stopping to think (or just wandering off to read something).
3. Do yoga daily. Do also other fitness stuff. Continue semi-accidentally losing weight.
4. Bend my surroundings to my will.
5. Continue to vanquish the kitchen first thing in the morning (dishes, dishwasher, bench, etc.). This is my pet habit – I feed it and water it and cherish it every day because I don’t want it to die.
6. Place a time-seal on any chocolate I buy, so I can’t eat it the same day (or month, or whatever). In the absence of chocolate-sized safes that I can set to open on specific dates, I shall use post-it notes and imagination.
7. Stop "delurking" and just post random stuff without thinking about it. (Eg. Rewatched Shrek 2. Best bit is still the mutant dragon-donkey babies in the credits. Appreciated Puss in Boots all the more for having seen Zorro.)
8. Keep a list (maybe even a tally) of all the fandoms I’ve been reading in, until I get bored with the idea.
9. Read 24 non-fiction books (any subject).
10. Write 24 pieces of fanfiction.
11. Create 12 bits of art.
12. Create 24 icons.
13. Sell 24 items on online auctions.
14. Attempt to get numbers 9-13 on this list finished as soon as possible, so I can do them all over again.
15. Make 10 more origami Yodas, so that the knowledge of how to make them doesn’t just fall out of my brain after a few months. Then learn how to make something else.
16. Go to bed before midnight on a regular basis.
17. Maybe kind of work out what I want to do with my life. Apart from living it, as that goes without saying.
18. Have fun.

And now, because it is midnight, I shall go to bed. Actually, no. I've changed my mind. Now, I shall bounce around flailing madly.

Christmas for James this year is a tree decked in the style of Jack’s hair – cheerful clutter that shouldn’t work but does – and a pirate... )
