1. So yesterday LJ didn't let me answer to any comment if my answer was longer than five lines in the comment box. *facepalm* Dear LJ, are you letting me catch up at some point? Thanks, me. My icon represents what I'd like to do if I could meet those hackers, though tbh I'm also using it because it's gorgeous.

2. Porn battle started. I've been spending the last three hours writing random ASOIAF fills just to see if I have a handle on the characters. I feel like I'm doing something wrong because they lack rolling heads and utter angst, though a couple I've been eyeing are good for angstfesting. Right now I have a couple for both my main ships, let's see if this evening I like them enough to post them.. also why the heck I'm eyeing Theon/Robb prompts, I DON'T EVEN SHIP THAT

3. Let's give that meme a boost.



four books. which is good. )

4. I didn't need a reminder of how awesome Misha Collins is, but this is so great that I can't even. That man has no right to be real. Stop ruining men for me, Misha. Except.. no, keep on doing it. I'll get over it and I can bask in your awesomeness.

5. Sometime this week I will upload the Bon Jovi concert pics. And Slash's concert pics (or: at least Janie scored two good ones this month).

6. Sirens ends today. Hear me weeping. Also, I decided I'm watching GoT while at my grandmother's in the second part of the month - I'll be internet-less and bored out of my mind, so at least I'll be entertained.

7. That stated, I'll go ponder on my fills and answering the backload of comments that I had to ignore for the entire week courtesy of Russian hackers. *glares and waves*

janie_tangerine: (ARE YOU SERIOUS?)
1. Between yesterday and today, I think I can divide the last twenty-four hours in pro/cons:

Pros: I got recced. While on the bus yesterday because I was going to a friend's birthday dinner I had a moment of enlightenment re the three fic exchanges I signed up for. I decided which prompt I'm doing for the Lost Hohoho one (I was still undecided), I planned what was left of the crossover one and mostly I realized what I need to write for the Dean/Cas one. I didn't do the wordcount I needed for the bigbang #2 but I'm quite into it and I'm pretty sure I'll manage it in a couple of days. And next week I don't have one class at all, which is definitely a pro.

Cons: I didn't do the wordcount I needed (well, that's a con), my phone charger is still dead and I can't and won't spend another twenty-five euros on it since I had bought it two months ago, I went to bed at three AM (not that I complain, the birthday dinner was awesome) and now I kind of want to go to sleep but can't and worst thing, I didn't get the job. :// I'm kind of not quite pleased with it right now because they used a system where they gave you points based on the weighted average between grades and the relation between the credits you have at this point and the credits you should have by now given the year and the number of exams. And it ended up with at least seven people arriving before me who had a lower weighted average but a higher relation and at least six having a higher weighted average and a lower relation. Which means that if someone gave four exams in two years when he should have given ten but got the maximum on them all that person was above me anyway even if I'm at the third year and given way more exams even without having all maximums. And at least five people who got in were running late (I'm not, or not yet anyway) and I didn't get it for five places. Argh, I don't really want to whine about it but I could have really used some money. :// Whatever, if six people decide they don't want it after all then I guess I might still get in, but I really can't see it happening. *sigh* Ah, whatever. I'll see if I can find something else.

2. After I post this I'll go checking out some place doing yoga near here. Maybe I can start again since last year I had too much stuff on my hands and couldn't find the time to go where I did it before. And I'd probably benefit if I took it up again.

3. Memes! One from [livejournal.com profile] bold_seer, one from [livejournal.com profile] catoasapun.

a) 1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!


Mine:



under here )

b) - Reply to this meme by typing "I want in on this shit."
- I will then give you 3-5 words that remind me of you.
- Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

Warning: this is long. And I rambled. And if you like my current PM, I strongly advise to skip the last word.

I got Good Omens, Ian Somerhalder, George Orwell, Bruce Springsteen, Italy. )

4. And then today I came home and... new Misha promo pic from S5. Can that man be any more... *dies* I just think that it's kind of not exactly representative because I've never seen Cas wearing those clothes, not that I'd mind if he did wear them. Not that I care. Aw, Misha, thanks for sort of making my days nicer by being so lovely yourself.

5. Christmas cards post is here, if anyone else would like one? ;)

6. Okay, I think I'm pretty much done also because I rambled more than I had thought I would. O_o I'll be out checking out that yoga thing and then I'll get back to writing. And also editing the other bigbang. If I manage to read something at the gym then I can put all of that in the pros. *waves*

janie_tangerine: (1984)
1. First of all, BIRTHDAYS! Though er, I think I'm late for one but happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] darknumb and [livejournal.com profile] bobbinrob)!

grab! )

2. So, I watched Flashforward.

I don't think I'll spoil, but still, let's be sure. )

3. I also started watching Band of Brothers, about which I'll probably do an extensive post in three days when I finish it (well, it's ten eps, I have the dvds, it's two each disc so I'm going for a disc each day) and I'm pretty much loving it. Considering that I totally used to be and still am a complete WWII geek... and when I'm done it might actually put me in the mood to go and finish that certain fic. Which has to be finished in a month anyway, but still. It does help.

4. I think I managed to do my schedule for classes for this semester which starts next week. Mess, I tell you. Mess. Though I'm lucky I just have two classes overlapping once. Problem is that they're both stuff I really should not skip given that one gets one fifth of my grade and the other one isn't the subject I want to skip, but I guess I'll attend both and see which one I can sacrifice.

5. My aunt (who teaches English in high school) has seemingly decided to ask me to repeat the Bob Dylan gig of two years ago. Except that this round she wants me to go to her class and talk to her students about 1984 like next week. And possibly if she follows my advice and does some American literature, and if she follows my second advice and explains them some Steinbeck, I might be back there in January or so to entertain them on the relations between Grapes of Wrath Tom Joad and Springsteen's Tom Joad. Clearly option #2 is way less scary than #1 since if you get me talking about Springsteen I won't shut up, but next week? I think I need to prepare some lecture. That is a scary perspective but whatever, I did it once, I'll do it twice.

6. And since it's the quote day for the blasted meme, let's go with an Orwell one.

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

To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle.

George Orwell


Which is brief and not the long-ass things I usually link but imo very, very true.

7. I think it's all for now. I'll probably see if I manage to catch up with some comments and then go to bed at a semi-decent hour, since considering that in one week I'll have classes I can't exactly afford one in the night anymore. *waves*
