1. I hope all my fellow Italians had a good Liberation Day yesterday! Mine was good, even if I think I made one of my oversleeping records.

2. Ship battle meme with icons stolen from [livejournal.com profile] lenina20, which ended up being crazy. And fun, but mainly crazy. Also, proof that not only I have too many ships icons, but I really am not a mainly het person. Also, I didn't put the icon I have Enchanted because really, it's there just because I like the icon and I thought that movie was adorable but I really can't say I ship people in a Disney movie. Aanyway.

Make a list of all the ships in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character ship, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two on the list; that's your first pairing for battle. Second two; second pairing for battle. Etc. Then write your reaction to each battle.

3. Memes speaking, I need to spread love for the two fics I got for the alphabed meme until now. [livejournal.com profile] emiliglia wrote me the most angsty and heartbreaking and lovely Jack/Boone ficlet and [livejournal.com profile] toestastegood wrote me some Boone/Charlie videotaping sex which is all kinds of perfection. Go read them! ;)

3b. I still have six or seven letters free at said meme, so if you want to give me a hand filling it all they're there. ;) I'll probably spend half of the afternoon writing anyway, that meme was a good thing. I wrote more in two days than one month.

4. I think I'm in Adrian Pasdar withdrawal enough to catch up with Heroes. This volume had better be better than three though.

5. On the 23rd it was something like International Book Day and at my usual bookshop everything was sold with a 30% discount. Clearly they couldn't have said it before so that I'd have waited to buy some stuff for school which would have cost way less with such a discount but when I found it out I caved and got Gaiman, Steinbeck and Chabon non-fiction and saved a lot of money. Next year I'll be better prepared.

5b. And anyway, I wanted to buy Good Omens for a friend's birthday because I think she'd have a kick out of it. But she doesn't read in English, so I went searching for it in Italian. Well, apart from finding out they translated the title Good Apocalypse to Everyone! (really), I find out it's completely out of print and at said bookshop, which is a chain with at least eight stores in Rome, there isn't a single one which has a copy. Really? I mean, geez. (Well, fine, I think the only Gaiman book I've actually seen in print in Italian is Stardust, but still.) Then I bought her another thing but still, really? Out of print. Ah well, it's not like I'd have bought it with such a title. I'd kill whoever adapts books like that.

6. Just for the lulz, meme from [livejournal.com profile] lasamy. Maybe I just want an excuse to upload music.

Post the names of 20 25 (because I feel like I'm leaving people out) of your favorite musicians.
See who can guess which is your favorite song by each.
Once someone guesses right, bold that row and upload the song.


*with hints for every one not guessed now

list here )

7. Uhm, that all. This already was too long of a post anyway. And now I'll be writing and trying to finish Tropic of Cancer. I hope everyone is having a good Sunday!
