janie_tangerine: (birthday)
Hi world, drive-by post here. I'm currently at my grandmother's place in Sicily with extremely limited Internet access and getting bored like nothing else, which means that I'm not around a hundredth as much as I'd like, and I won't be much more around until I get back to the mainland/the regular internet/civilization on the 24th. aaand that said, this post was made for an entire other purpose, which was late birthday wishes. Therefore:

a) happy (so very late) birthday to [livejournal.com profile] joyyjpg!!!!!! I hope you had an awesome day and that you got spoiled with presents, and may next year bring us as many good things tv-wise (and especially more Cas than we had last year.....) and job-wise and everything-else wise ♥♥♥♥♥

b) and happy (less late) birthday to [livejournal.com profile] elliotsmelliot! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I hope you had an awesome day as well, that next year brings as many awesome things as possible, great stuff job-wise, good books to read and nice things on HBO (or what passes for nice in that case).

Aaand sorry for being late but as stated my internet access chances are unpredictable. Happy birthday to the both of you again! ♥

(And with this, I'll be back to the land of no bookshops, no internet and no anything. Sigh. I'll try to catch up on the FL one of these days.)

1. Happy late birthday to [livejournal.com profile] 88mph and happy on-time-in-the-proper-timezone birthday to [livejournal.com profile] verucasalt123! I hope you both had/are having smashing days and that your next year will be more awesome than not (and filled with Kill Bill references on SPN). ;) If you want to leave a prompt I'll see what I can do. :)

2. In RL news: bad side, everyone in the uni's student office should be strangled. (News of the year: you can't even choose the exams that are in the STUDENT'S CHOICE box on the study plan. If I ever meet the thankfully now former ministry of public instruction, I'll make her want to crawl underground. Anyway, it's been solved by technically-not-so-honest methods. Did I ever say I want to be done with Italian bureaucracy?) Good side: tomorrow and the day after I'm going to Milan for opera reasons. Thinking about it makes me momentarily forget the bad side since it's bucket list item #2 to cross. \o/

3. In TV news:

a) Since I can't quit Ringer until Misha does his thing, I caught up on the last two episodes. Non-spoilery response: the more it goes on the more I laugh. Also... sorry, but I've never seen a show with a dumber lead character. There, said it. Also the writers should do research on how heroin withdrawal and genetics work (red hair is RECESSIVE!), but I stopped expecting coherence from that show after episode two.

b) I'm missing the latest H50 episode still but the previous was better than most of this season put together, even if I still don't get Lori's point.

c) Boardwalk Empire is still at the level of: ten minutes of it are better than everything I watch the rest of the week combined. Though it needs more Chalky and Jimmy and Richard making out asap.

d) I'm also watching Hell on Wheels. Which I'm enjoying a lot except when they try to be Deadwood. The pilot pushed more on that aspect which is why I liked half of it and checked out during the second, but the second was already better on that aspect so I'll stick with this from now. I really do like the lead character (and his lovely boots), the black guy he's apparently going to be bffs with and that entire storyline (also the first scene of the pilot was aces). I can't get into Colm Meaney's character because it seems to me like he wants to be Al Swearengen at all costs and.. well, apart from the character being miles from Al's glory, Ian McShane would eat the actor for breakfast. So I check out whenever he monologues to nothing. I still don't know what to make of the lady with the dead husband, but maybe once she actually does something other than running from indians I might appreciate it more. Also the guy playing Alistair in SPN being the sheriff made me cackle with laughter throughout all of episode two (which was a lot better than one). Anyway for now I'm sticking with it - it's not a masterpiece and it's definitely not in the Deadwood league, but when they aren't trying to re-do it it's pretty good and hey, western show on my screen! My western fetish is being fulfilled and if they keep on doing their thing and Colm Meaney stops trying to be Ian McShane I'll be okay. Still, whenever I watch it I curse because three seasons of Deadwood weren't enough for my needs, but I figured it'd happen.

e) About SPN 7x08, since it's obvious that I'm not doing a separate post for it and I won't have time this weekend.. there it goes. By the way: it was probably my least favorite episode of this show in existence, so read at your own risk/amusement/whatever.

done a bit differently. )

4. Also, tomorrow the entire insane gishwishes thing apparently begins. Clearly I'll miss two days because I'm out *eyes Misha and his timing*. But let's see where it goes. Considering how embarrassing it was to ask someone to take a picture of yours truly with the gishwishes sign I think this is going to be shock therapy for my tendency to get embarrassed.

5. I'll probably do Yuletide. As if I needed ANOTHER exchange... but there are some fandoms which are too shiny for me not to do it.

6. Aaand that's all also because my train is at eight in the morning. *sigh* hopefully I can do some fic exchanges on there tomorrow.
