lyssie: (WAIT who are we again?)
1. I am pretty sure if I made a Bill and Ted joke at work no one would get it (a: culture barrier due to multi-cultural co-workers. b: they are all so damn young. Ok. Not all. But A, for instance, missed a Die Hard reference. He's a dude. How does a dude miss a Die Hard ref?)

2. Which was not what I intended to start with. Oh well.

3. So. You know how you sometimes google yourself just for shits and giggles? BSG fandom has a large chunk (in bits and pieces) in Digital Fandom: New Media Studies by Paul Booth. If you search it for 'Lyssie', the relevant page displayed is a bit relating to a femslash fic I wrote (me and LoQ going back and forth about it - it's an example of blogs and reactions or something. Whatever). (WTF I AM IN A PUBLISHED ACADEMIC WORK, also, so are my shipping preferences. SO EMBARRASSING

4. Under my real name, I am apparently the devil in disguise. GO ME. (I could be a spy!)

5. I saw my folks over the holidays, mom and I watched a bunch of Granada Sherlock Holmes. Also, my mother is immune to the Rule of Cool, apparently.

6. I have listened to Green Wing so often at work that I can quote it during every damned episode. And I still want to be Sue White when i grow up (Ms. Gomez, why and how are you so amazing. I do not understand).

7. ETA: Also, and oh god, can I rant a bit about the cover of Alice Through the Looking Glass a bit? Because according to the cover, the movie is all about Tim Curry um... Depp, right. Anyway, he's the main character. Or something. When in reality all he is is a fugly lamp that could be removed and the movie would (mostly; let's be honest here, it didn't require him specifically to set events in motion, but someone did have to be the Underland catalyst, although arguably that was Mirana) have remained the same.

AUGH. Fuck Disney. And Burton.

1. I keep re-watching this Icon For Hire vid which is essentially a bit feminist 101 re: women in the music industry and how it's stacked against fair play (and how, even forty years since Joan Jett and Patti Smyth and Heart, women are still considered just tits and ass). It's also an adorable vid with pink sparkly glitter and lipstick. (I do really like IfH, despite their ridiculous teenagery angsty bandness. They're a bit Linkun Park, but there's just the lead singer, not two dudes splitting the rap vs sung music lines)

2. Work has finally settled on moving me to another department (my role is 'critical' and 'vital', but will now roll up under a different manager/director). That's nice of them. Hilariously enough, A will be a co-worker again (I'm not stalking you, dude, honest).

3. My mad dash through everything Allison Lane has ever written is nearly at an end. Though I still don't think I'll read her two earliest novels. The cover of one is just... awful.

4. My mother randomly dialed me the other day. When I called her back, we chatted for a while. My parents seem to be doing fine. My brother in law, otoh, has a blood clot they're treating (he went in because headaches, and they were like "you can't do anything for three months because death"). At least they caught it?

5. I didn't sign up for femslashex (for serious, my fic output has been, like, two fics a year, and that includes the femslash porn battle). But hurrah for everyone who did. It does mean I can try to figure out treats or something. (I gave lots of pairing prompts, that counts for a lot, right?)

6. I was sick two weeks ago (a cold), and I spent Monday and Tuesday home from work and managed to re-watch some of Have seasons two and three. And. That disappointed simmering rage still does not go away. (I will let this go about the same time I let Eastwick go)

7. I also re-watched pretty much all of Green Wing. I continue to be convinced that Sue White is Missy getting in some practice for stalking her BFF. Because really. (also, I love almost every member of that cast)

8. The weather has finally turned to autumn, and I'm a little annoyed that we're giving that mellow 60s temperature stage a miss. (ie, it's been cold. ish. shut up, I am a delicate snowflake)

9. I should really do the meme prompts I have sitting around. I feel certain there are some (and it would procrastinate from logging in to kick out invoices in dolphin).

10. When asked my favorite Doctor the other day, I said Eleven. I think it might be Seven now, though.
lyssie: (Hathor is amused by stupidity)
1. I saw a unicyclist riding along the lakeside on my way home.

2. I have watched the entirety of Green Wing, and have only one thought (well, probably more than one):
a. Mac and Caroline need to make out for my enjoyment more (failing that, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Tamsin Grieg need to as other people)
b. If I were skinny, I'd fake a Scottish accent and cosplay as Sue White everywhere (I cannot even with her, she is AMAZING)
c. I'm confused over how hot I found Julian Rhind-Tutt. Like, maybe it's the hair? idk. Just. unf.

3. Having learned that it will have the Lady Sif in it, I might actually start buying a comicbook again (damn you, Marvel)

4. Booklist update Read more... )
