Extra that goes outside the list:



Congratulations, US. I'm not in the habit of blathering about politics that aren't my own but considering who was the alternative, congratulations. Also, just one thing even if it's late and probably not relevant anymore: dear Mitt Romney, Italy's economy is fucked because all the policies adopted here have *not* been the same as Obama's in the US. Check your facts.

That stated, on to less worldwide things.

1. First thing goes first: GASLIGHT ANTHEM ARE IMMENSE. Seriously I so don't regret the Milan trip - it was *amazing* and I got first row and they're as awesome as I thought they'd be AND THEY PLAYED FILM NOIR DSFKDSHFKSH I CAN'T COMPREHEND HOW AWESOME THAT CONCERT WAS. Not to mention the Wolverine action figures on the speakers - nerds, NERDS! - and the incense going on so that it'd cover the fake-smoke-they-always-use-in-concert smell. NO SERIOUSLY. ALSO BRIAN FALLON YOU'RE SO CUTE IN PERSON I DIED. HE SMILES ALL THE TIME I CAN'T.

LOOK AT HOW LOVELY HE IS.



sjafhkdsfgdkshfg. [livejournal.com profile] mollivanders you're in for a treat when you go see them. ;) Aaand I don't have time for full reviews but there might be one later. That said: I LOVE THESE PEOPLE OKAY.

2. So I'm doing [livejournal.com profile] mini_wrimo again. Hopefully I'll use it to finish stuff I have to finish rather than starting stuff at random that is never going to see the light of day.

3. GISHWHES killed my soul, but it was awesomecakes. Except, do never, ever do something stupid like reading The Raven to a crow. Or read anything to a crow. Stupid birds. I might post some of the pictures at some point, but ugh seriously it was a lot crazier than last year. I don't dare imagine what Misha is going to cook up next time...

4. Since we're talking Misha: random-ass-sort-of-late-but-not-for-the-last-episode reviews of SPN 8x05 and 8x06.

spoilersspoilersspoilers )

5. Non TV related and concerts related: Mumford and Sons are coming to Rome in March (SCORE FOR ME - TOTALLY GOING) and Bon Jovi after finally learning that Italy is Not A Place To Be Feared are coming to Milan in June! MORE CONCERTS FOR ME! And less money for me I fear, but you only live once I suppose.

6. I finally settled things re my study plan. Which means I can do my Masters thesis with the professor I want. And I didn't even have to argue with the office (too much). I think the Apocalypse *is* coming after all.

7. The indecent number of spam comments LJ left me this week is mind-boggling. I haven't had that many in ages. :/

8. Aaand that's all there is for the moment. Hopefully I'll have some half-decent concert review up at some point soon, along with other stuff. And I'll manage to update properly.
janie_tangerine: (ally mcbeal >> richard fish ftw)
1. Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] thespiansparkle and [livejournal.com profile] carmexgirl! :DDD i hope that you're both having awesome days and that the next year is nothing short of awesome. (And that possibly brings Misha Collins back on our screens, that damned new Dark Tower book and everything you shall wish for.) And if any of you has prompts I'll see what I can do. :)

2. Meeeh apart from episode reviews I haven't posted anything lately. Reason: I was supposed to have an exam on the 19th, then it was moved to the 24th, THEN it was moved to the 3rd (for me) and I've been angsting over it until now. And will angst over it until Thursday. Doesn't help that I don't care about any of it but hopefully the second time will go through...

3. Meanwhile I've been at least keeping up with shows.

Shortly: Ringer keeps on being ridiculous and at some point I'll just fast forward to the scenes with Nestor Carbonell and watch just him. Mostly because the characters seem to be in a race for who is the most dumb. like, just a couple of things ) H50 got better even if it's still not as shiny as last season and I still don't get if I want Lori gone or not. Then again just show me AOL without a shirt and we can talk. Sirens got canceled so there goes the only new show that I really liked this season. Meeeh.

3b. A couple longer things about Boardwalk Empire: mostly about 2x05 but also some 2x06 )

4. So, Misha Collins is apparently wanting to get into the world records guinness by making us go insane and opened a website for it. Out of all the things you were supposed to do until now I only managed to get someone to take a picture of yours truly while holding up a sign saying gishwishes takes Rome. You don't want to know how I explained the entire thing to the very nice woman taking the pic for me. If anyone has missed the collage on the site..



You can see yours truly's face for a split half of a second at 0.44. I'm the one with the trenchcoat in front of the Pantheon - you can't really read the sign but you COULD, if looked at the picture in the right size. XD

5. Throwing it here: anyone would be willing to beta for me 6000 words of Castiel & Amelia Novak fic for Novakfest? Posting starts on the 8th but I highly doubt I'll be posting early, so no hurries.

6. Aaand... happy Halloween to whoever seriously does it! Between it not being a huge thing here and the fact that I have to study physics stuff I absolutely don't give a damn about I'm doing.. absolutely anything, but here, have the Best Thing Ever For This Holiday that I know.



Don't tell me that it isn't awesome. ;)

7. And I think it shall be it for now. At some point I'll get back into the swing of things. Possibly after having passed this thing. The day I thought that the master's degree meant more laid back schedule I was so very wrong.

two songs! )

2. Very much more random. I took that tarot cards quiz going around the internet. First thing: I found it totally AWESOME that in the question 'what's your favorite heavenly body' after all the solar system's planets there was Uma Thurman for an answer. Guess what I answered? Yeah, right.

Anyway, I got this:


You are The Tower


Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.


The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.


The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.


What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.



I'm not 100% sure that it's an accurate answer, even though it, mmmh, says dangerously true things about stuff going on in my current state of mind, but I'm just laughing at the fact that I got THE TOWER. Like, that quiz knows what I'm obsessed with. doesn't Roland Deschain come with it?

3. Sirens is over. If they don't renew it I shall be very sad. Why do UK shows last for six episodes when it's good and three when it's bad? Meh. It was the best new thing I had seen this year. :( On the other side I decided I'm saving Game of Thrones for when I go to my grandmother's place after the 15th because I'll be without internet except for once a day and I'll have a whole damn lot of time to kill. Hopefully my grandmother won't think that I'm insane if she sees me watching it.

4. I have nothing more and that second point probably took enough space already so I'll leave this post here. Can't believe I'm actually almost done with that meme...

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN! + other stuff

janie_tangerine: (bruce no surrender #2)
1. Rome Film Festival: mission semi-accomplished. Meaning: both movies were awesome, trying to catch Bruce was not accomplished. But, more in detail:

a) The People vs George Lucas is a blast! Okay, if you're not into Star Wars at all and you aren't interested in sociology/anthropology, then you probably would die of boredom, but it was a pretty interesting documentary and tbh, it was refreshing to hear a bunch of fans saying that the SW prequels suck. (Even if I still maintain that Phantom Menace was the best of the three, even if it was bad.) But it gives you interesting thoughts about business vs artistic integrity in general, about creator vs public issues in how you need to handle something successful and then well, if you're into SW and if you hate Jar Jar Binks it's fun as hell. And Christ, I never even knew that the Star Wars Christmas special existed, but seeing pieces of it on that movie positively made me laugh for the entire five minutes they talked about it.

b) Then, Italian organization: fail. wherein I explain why )

c) Apart from the clusterfuck in B, at least being in the gallery meant having nice places for the movie (because staying in the front with such a big screen = headache) and damn I need to buy that box set now. Because it was gorgeous. Technically and also from the Bruce fanatic POV, but that was a given. And it also had surprise!Patti Smith, which was a lovely bonus. Anyway he came out after it and sat with two journalists and Jon Landau (!!) and the director, and there my camera died for good. I can't even turn it on anymore without the lens hissing. But, I managed to take some crappy pictures and a video, which I guess isn't THAT bad. So, cut.

BRUCE! )

d) This is mostly for the lulz, but anyway. My dad is a cruel person. This morning he's like 'have you read that after the movie he went to have dinner with fifty fans?'. I check the online article. It said fifty 'notable' fans, which I guess means that it was either people who ran a website or the fan club or SOMETHING. And I'm like 'well, since when I'm a notable fan?' and he's like 'oh dear, you really suck.' And I'm like ';_______________; FOREVER.' Why did he even have to tell me? I could have used some dinner by then anyway, since I was starving..

2. Anyway, that was it for Bruce. Other important thing: SIGN-UPS FOR LOST HOHOHO ARE OPEN at [livejournal.com profile] lostsquee!! Go go go sign up! I can't do it because I a) don't have time and b) I need to match people and I don't want to end up assigning myself someone because it could be partial but GO! It's just 1000 words and the more people sign the least headaches I'll get when I need to do the matches. Sounds good? Then do it! ;)

3. I still need to do my mini_nano amount for today. I'll do it after I'm done with this entry. Also because yesterday I did 1100 words when I should have done 400 so yay!

4. Whoever decided to turn on the heat in mid-November is a criminal, btw. It's freezing regardless of how many layers you wear. And it's colder inside than outside. /rant

5. For anyone who read in my previous SPN review one reason why Dean is Beatrix from Kill Bill, I did a follow-up. Castiel is featured in this one, too.

I feel like this is stuff which would be more suited for tumblr but whatevs I don't have one )

6. And since this post got way too long because of pictures, I'll cut it here and go writing. Or studying. Or something. Ff after yesterday, today was such a drag.

Eee, this is a real post! I'm almost shocked myself.

1. Okay, I'm almost shocked myself, but this last week has been... the busiest since September or so? In order, I: did the extra exam, covered shifts for other people at the library, lost hours in order to hand over the last paper that was lacking from all the graduation forms, lost a bunch of time searching bibliographies for stuff to use in my thesis (which ended up being mostly useless), talked with my supervisor and I still need to start writing said thesis. At least it's just forty pages. *sigh* Moral of the story: I spent the weekend sleeping, mostly, and the only thing I managed to do was post a fic I had a deadline for. *sigh* So if I owe any comments or e-mails I'll see to do it all tonight/tomorrow morning since I have it free.

2. Also happy Halloween to anyone doing it? (I don't, but it's not like anyone I know does it either or like it's a big thing here, so. It sounds... very much like I don't like to have fun, but I just want one evening to catch up. XD)

3. In much better news: Bon Jovi are touring, which is nothing new, BUT THERE'S AN ITALIAN DATE, which is, instead, a miracle. Or at least, they hadn't had one in... ten years. Or so. Which means, I'M ATTENDING A BON JOVI CONCERT. Which probably wouldn't request capslock, but dammit I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR TEN YEARS TO GET ONE not needing to get out of the country.

Clearly it's in a city which is exactly near to the border both with Austria and Slovenia which means I'll need to spend ten hours on a train or two, BUT WHO CARES.

4. In as good news: I had bought a ticket to go see The Promise at the Rome film festival tomorrow. It also was the last ticket. Then Friday they announced that Bruce Springsteen was attending THAT screening.

Meaning: TOMORROW I'M SEEING BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. And I paid exactly 6.50 euros for it. I've been gleeing non-stop since I heard it. \o/ Also before The Promise I'm seeing in the same hall a movie named The People Vs. George Lucas, which is apparently made of interviews to Star Wars fans who hated the prequels. I'm strangely excited for it, or at least I'm excited because I want to have some fun.

5. I also signed up for [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo, with the intent of using it for both my thesis and the bunch of fics I need to finish. Except that I had forgotten that I'll be out of town for two days and idk how I'm going to report to them. I need to check the rules again.

6. Also since I am done with bureaucracy, I should also catch up on both Hawaii 5-0 and Boardwalk Empire. This last one will kill me, since I haven't seen anything beyond episode two and it's one hour long, but damn I loved it so much, I don't want to wait for the season to be over to catch up.

7. Also I'm attempting to read some goddamn fiction again because I've been reading just school stuff for one month, so expect some book recs post in a week or so. But for now I can totally say that Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake is probably the best thing not written by Kafka which I read this year. I'm still gushing over how good it was. I'll probably rant about it more extensively in the future.

8. My PM becomes worse with every passing day. Except that this time there's a girl named Ruby (okay, it's not her real name, but still) involved in the whole mess and every time I hear 'the Ruby affair' on the TV or on newspapers I have laughing fits instead of feeling depressed. I'm at the point when I think it's actually a good thing. :/

9. Uhm, that's probably everything, Rl-wise. I'll probably post again soon-ish with Bruce pictures if I manage to take some. :D and now I'll be off catching up with things, which I'll do also tomorrow morning. How glad I am that November 1st is national vacation here. Let's see if I can manage to be caught up before the 2nd.

10. ETA: and I'm an idiot, since I started the post wanting to say this and I forgot, but happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] carmexgirl and [livejournal.com profile] thespiansparkle! :DDD I hope you both have awesome days (had, by now), and if either of you wants to prompt me or something I'll see what I can do. :D

janie_tangerine: (awesomest DT quote)
1. Most important thing first: I have my Edinburgh tickets for the European Lost fangirl meeting!!! :D I'm so excited omg. Also I hope that Scotland is chilly because I need to get out of this goddamn heat where there are 32 degrees and I feel 38 right the fuck now. For a while, at least.

2. That said: anyone wants a card from there? Trust me, you want it from Edinburgh and not from my grandmother's place where I'll be heading shortly after I'm back. ;) In case, just leave me a comment and if I have your address already we're cool. If not, PM me? ;)

3. I find it mostly amusing that 90% of the reason I'll go see Inception whenever the hell it comes out in this goddamn country (September, I think), is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in it. The fact that it looks awesome helps, but yeah. That'd be my reason number one. Okay, this point was unnecessary, but still. Also all my fl is like AWESOME!!!!!!!! and I'm like 'why the hell do I need to wait two months?'.

4. I finally bought myself Under The Dome, which I'll probably end up reading on the plane to Edinburgh. Even tho it's heavy so I might want to save it for my grandmother's place. *uses DT icon in King's honor* Also I bought myself Ally McBeal S1 because it was very cheap and I've been caught in a re-watching from the beginning. How I used to love that show and the totally not adjusted characters in it. <3 *sigh*

5. Also, I have a new printer. For the first time in three years. I don't know if I should weep of joy or headdesk. Also I need to make myself a sticky table with all the stuff I need to write (stealing from [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound's book, I think) because maybe then I'll be able to finish things.

6. Since Bruce Springsteen decided to leave me alone and not to tour this summer, I've been listening a lot to the audio from London Calling, just because it's easier than dig out the dvd every time. And at one point he's like 'we're going to build a house of sexual healing!!!!!!!!'. Add that to the bunch of reasons why I <3 him.

7. I should do a ranty post about how easier is life here if your dad is a politician, but I don't want to rant in this perfectly random and awesome post. So that's probably for tomorrow or something.

8. Luau: I need to catch up with you. Expect another bunch of stuff this weekend when I'll also be alone in the house. And I can't even throw some party because I don't know enough people who aren't on vacation at the same time, what a pity. ;)

9. Thesis brainstorming is currently going meh. In the sense that I have a huge-ass Kant biography to read and then nothing else. I'll go talk to my supervisor again on Friday I guess. Also, working at the library is awesome except that apparently no one deems it necessary to buy pens when we're out of it at the welcoming desk and I ended up buying four myself. Italian university, this is so not good for you if students need to buy equipment worth 70 cents... *headdesk*

10. LJ's new tagging system wouldn't be bad, but why does it suggest me MY tags on COMMS? O__o'' I hope they fix that soon. Also because I can't remember half of my tags myself at times. Errr.

11. Anyway. It's one AM, this post is very random and in the next two days I hope I'll have more fic or at least something more interesting to say. It was mostly because of the postcards but hey, apparently I had some more random stuff to say. *waves*

huge post of RANDOM. Also, postcards!

1. Most important thing first: I have my Edinburgh tickets for the European Lost fangirl meeting!!! :D I'm so excited omg. Also I hope that Scotland is chilly because I need to get out of this goddamn heat where there are 32 degrees and I feel 38 right the fuck now. For a while, at least.

2. That said: anyone wants a card from there? Trust me, you want it from Edinburgh and not from my grandmother's place where I'll be heading shortly after I'm back. ;) In case, just leave me a comment and if I have your address already we're cool. If not, PM me? ;)

3. I find it mostly amusing that 90% of the reason I'll go see Inception whenever the hell it comes out in this goddamn country (September, I think), is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in it. The fact that it looks awesome helps, but yeah. That'd be my reason number one. Okay, this point was unnecessary, but still. Also all my fl is like AWESOME!!!!!!!! and I'm like 'why the hell do I need to wait two months?'.

4. I finally bought myself Under The Dome, which I'll probably end up reading on the plane to Edinburgh. Even tho it's heavy so I might want to save it for my grandmother's place. *uses DT icon in King's honor* Also I bought myself Ally McBeal S1 because it was very cheap and I've been caught in a re-watching from the beginning. How I used to love that show and the totally not adjusted characters in it. <3 *sigh*

5. Also, I have a new printer. For the first time in three years. I don't know if I should weep of joy or headdesk. Also I need to make myself a sticky table with all the stuff I need to write (stealing from [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound's book, I think) because maybe then I'll be able to finish things.

TWITTERIFIC post + that meme + stuff

1. Point 1 and 2 are what I'm now calling the proof that today is a good day.

potential HEAVY Lost casting spoiler, you probably guessed what it is already but still, cutting it. )

2. Point is, point 1 came and made the day more awesome, but it had already started awesome. Okay, now I'll probably pass for the seriously insane fangirl, but anyway. So, yesterday Chad Lindberg of SPN fame (I reiterate: Ash used to be my favorite character before he, er, died *sigh*) reaches 2000 followers on Twitter. I congratulate him on the achievement, then go to bed. Then I wake up and he has answered me and wished me an awesome weekend.

The actor playing my former favorite SPN character actually wished me an awesome weekend. How freaking cool is this guy? *____* Damn. I miss Ash like crazy. And I kinda wish he'd go to the con we'll have here *crosses fingers*. Because if he does... no but anyway, he tweeted back at me!! *is still ecstatic*

3. Okay, again with the caring is sharing meme...

For one week, recommend/share:
Day 1: a song
→ Day 2: a picture
Day 3: a book/ebook/fanfic
Day 4: a site
Day 5: a youtube clip
Day 6: a quote
Day 7: whatever tickles your fancy

Today's picture won't probably mean anything if you're not into Jersey people/music (I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound is laughing her a** off now at my ridiculous Jersey love), but I found it while I was searching for one and it's like, all the best Jersey music/cinema can offer in one shot. The quality is kinda crap but...



I mean. JBJ, Southside Johnny, Danny De Vito, Little Steven AND Bruce?

Yeah, I'm a girl obsessed with people from NJ. No news.

4. Today I went to see Videocracy. My only reaction: I really want to emigrate. And that's all I'm saying for now on the matter. For now.

5. Blah. I need to start writing again. Last week between medieval idiotic philosophers and stuff I didn't manage to get a full sentence down and a) it feels weird b) knowing myself the more I make it last the more I'll be lazy and considering that I have 50000 words of two fics to write before October 31st, three Lost things I want to have as late luau stuff even if I'm seriously late at this point, the SPN/GO crossover of doom which is still not done at +20000 words and at least another three fics I really want to write... I should stop being lazy. St. Thomas Aquinas doesn't put you in the mood to write slash though. (not to mention, Medieval stuff in general will probably kill any porn muse you might have. I think it's that.) *sigh* I just hope that all the theology crap I have to study will turn helpful with SPN stuff someday. Right now? Bo-ring.

5b. me asking an opinion about a probably supremely blaspheme SPN pairing I don't know if I want to write or not, cut for sparing non SPN people. )

6. Okay, I'll go answering stuff I should have answered two days ago and then I'll probably go reading some book which doesn't refer in any slightest way to God's intellect/free will, human intellect or anything concerning how Aristotle was really a Christian without knowing it. *roll eyes* *waves*

(Yes, I still owe comments. But I NEED to do this review before, like, ONE WEEK passes.)

Aaaand.... I HAD VOICE! I don't know what it is with Bruce concerts where I scream myself hoarse and then I still have plenty of voice the next day but YAY! I could talk, lol.

Anyway. I only have three words, which would be, BEST CONCERT EVER with some OMMMGGGG thrown in for good measure. I mean. Seriously. He read my mind while choosing the setlist, or something. Anyway, review under the cut, long-ass as usual, some pictures too, no videos because my singing = UGLY and (probably sadly) also Misha Collins references because it so happened. And also, one of the few pictures of yours truly you'll ever get to see.

Also, the pictures are 1600x1200. They WILL break your dial-up. I warned. ;)

Uh, wait. The picture kind of sucks and you can't see my darling properly, but best I can find for now.



^ I LOVE THEM ALL. OMG I LOVE THEM ALL.

OMG BEST CONCERT EVER SRSLY. )

*CAPSLOCK IS OBLIGATORY*

OKAY. LOOK WHO WE MANAGED TO SEE TODAY AND WHO WINKED AT ME AND ACTUALLY SMILED TOO AND I ACTUALLY MANAGED TO TAKE ONE PICTURE THAT DIDN'T SUCK ASS. AT THE E-STREET'S HOTEL WHERE ME, [livejournal.com profile] lasamy and [livejournal.com profile] pnr ENDED ABSOLUTELY BY CHANCE (after re-watching, me at least, The Boat That Rocked which is still the most fucking awesome movie I've watched this year which didn't have anything to do with Clint Eastwood). OMG OMG *FLAILS* AND THEY ACTUALLY MANAGED TO CATCH STEVE VAN ZANDT TOO AND NILS TOO (*HEADDESK*) WHILE I WAS TOO BUSY BEING IN A MOB AND TRYING TO HOIST MYSELF ON AN HOTEL WINDOW WITHOUT FALLING OFF (ACTUALLY MY HAND IS STILL TREMBLING ON AUTOMATIC BUT IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH THAT BTW).



OMG CLARENCE FUCKING CLEMONS YESYESYESYES *dies* AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS EITHER YOU SKIP MY BRUCE POSTS OR YOU NEED TO GOOGLE HIM. WHATEVER, HE'S STILL AWESOME. OH DEAR. HE WAS LIKE THIRTY CMS FROM ME. OHHHHDEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR. *flails*

(and btw, I actually bonded with a very cute seven-year old or something who was trying to hoist himself on the same window as me and was a total Bruce fanatic. Me and kids bonding = MIRACLE. Just Bruce, seriously.)

WHATEVER. OMGI'MSOEXCITEDFORTOMORROW AND I'LL JUST GO FLAILING AND LET [livejournal.com profile] lasamy and [livejournal.com profile] pnr POST THIS TOO, OR AT LEAST ONE OF THEM, OR HOWEVER IT ENDS UP. OMFSM.

(sorry. Will answer to comments tomorrow morning. I am NOT functioning the proper way right now, if it wasn't already clear.)

1. First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my favorite people around here aka [livejournal.com profile] toestastegood! ♥

grab! )

2. Mm, okay. So. Hi! First real entry in a while, blame the luau for that. (And I'm behind on reading, daammmiit.) Everyone is doing alright? ;)

3. Okay, on to the first point of this post, tomorrow [livejournal.com profile] pnr is flying down here (\o/) and on Friday [livejournal.com profile] lasamy is coming too, and we'll all be awesome and go to see Bruce Springsteen together on the 19th. ♥ Sooo, I'll probably be scarcer around here until the 24th or so, but I guess I'll have posts and the Bruce review and I'll check the e-mail/comments and everything, so I shouldn't be too scarce. I dunno if I'll manage to crank up something for the luau in this time but I'll bookmark and stuff and then I'll just catch up later. ;)

4. That said, I seriously need to spend at least good part of this afternoon starting with the Secret Angels fic for the exchange at [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel. Thankfully I have 75% of it plotted out, but I'd really like to have some of it written already before the 24th.

4b. a couple of things re my SPN rewatching of yesterday afternoon which you should know about if we're friends on Twitter )

5. Okay, I'll be off buying groceries, calling my friend who should give me a lift to the airport tomorrow, writing some crack for the luau today and then starting that exchange fic. Maybe I'll even manage to read the newspaper in the midst of all this, lol. *waves*

1. Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] gemjam! ♥ I hope you get a great day and an even better year. ;) And if you want some icons or anything just ask. ;)

2. Uh, and happy Fourth of July to all you Americans out there! And since it's Independence Day, you get the random Bruce video because while I'm not American I can't resist.



3. I'm so excited for the luau at [livejournal.com profile] lostsquee! Which means that next month or so this place will be probably filled with Lost stuff except for a week when I probably will be scarce for RL reasons.

4. I also managed to start catching up with the load of banners I owe. Thankfully it's not too much all things considered, but I won't be able to finish anything before next week. When is the 8th?

5. Pointless entry is pointless and I really should go doing some studying along with multitasking as usual, so I guess it'll be all for now. *waves*
