Sorry for the people I didn't get to with the snowflake cookies. I didn't think it would still be around by Wednesday but I hoped maybe tonight, at least.

THANK YOU to everyone who sent me one, the number is far more than I ever expected and it's been a great pick-me-up to see the notifications come in. *cuddles everyone*

I think I am going to do the icon Christmas thing I wanted to do but they might turn into New Years icons depending on the time I get to work on everything. But I don't want to say what I'm going to do just yet in case things go belly up.

Today was interesting. Not in a bad way but it's amazing how there are people in the world that, just by existing, can make you hate something because they ruin everything. My friends deserve better.

I got the entire That 70's Show series for $70 tonight. *GLEE* I'm not a big fan of the last couple seasons but I LOVE THE SHOW SO MUCH and the box set is so cute and it was SO CHEAP so I had to get it. I've wanted it for a while since I saw how much I could get it for at cost so I'm jazzed. I should open it. Also, I got HP6 so YAY! I spent too much money on my CC but whatever, dvds.

It's fucking COLD. -30 can BITE ME.

It's been forever since I posted and I feel the need to, even though I don't have too much to say.

THANK YOU!!! to everyone who's sent a cookie snowflake treat to me! I got the first one from [livejournal.com profile] xxtornxxapartxx yesterday, which made me feel pretty damn good, then I work up this morning and had four more which was really, super surprising. And I've been sending quite a few myself, and have more sitting in my cart to check out (never really worked with the LJ shopping centre and it's a bit weird). I hope they stay free for a few more days so I can send more!

Beyond that I've been busy this week. Work work work. SO excited for Boxing Day to come because, after I talk to my boss at the 2nd job, hopefully that will signal the turning point in my insane schedule. Two shifts instead of three would be AMAZING right now.

It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't hurt SO BAD at the end of the three days but I can't help what's already happened so whatever. My physio therapist doesn't even want to introduce me back to the gym until January and all this bullshit happened in JUNE. Fuck.

Thinking about doing some sort of icon project for the holidays. But I'll have to see how time goes over the next few weeks. Once December 21st comes and [livejournal.com profile] pipry23 and D come home I'll be busy for five days. Which is good because I'm starting to dread Christmas more and more now.

I did some baking this weekend (have to do more) and put up the tree (pics on my twitter) so now I've kinda shot my holiday wad. I'm mostly dreading the days leading up to Christmas than anything because once the day comes and goes it's over. Boxing day comes and I can go back to my normal life. But this year Christmas is going to be extra hard because my family's leaving and even though I can go to [livejournal.com profile] pipry23's it's still going to be hella hard. Especially when I'm often crazy depressed at this time of the year as it is. I think the thing I'm going to miss the most is Christmas morning breakfast. It's always been the constant, no matter where I've been for the holiday.

We'll see how it goes.

OH. And finally, I kind of get how this Google Wave thing works, sorta. Does anyone want to add me? You add people, right? Cause I had some people on there but I didn't really know who they were so I removed them but I don't think they were wave people anyway and Google confuses the fuck out of me anyway. When the fuck is Google docs going to be integrated, anyone know? I'm Marishna on there, obvs.

And now I go to bed to start another week.

Does anyone know how to be able to save passwords again in Firefox if you've accidentally clicked the "never save password" button? I've googled it but all I see are tips from a couple years ago that talk about a "never save password" tab in the passwords place under privacy. Alas, I don't have that folder and none of the sites/boards I'm getting seem to be dated past 2006.

I went to respond to some comments on the username meme but, alas, it was maxed out. I also want to (have to, really) write but I just get so DAMN TIRED. It sucks. I'm SO CLOSE to finishing this fic based on [livejournal.com profile] cathbites' drawing from a few weeks ago but SO TIRED. :( I am still thinking about making a fic filter for writing in general and to maybe bounce around BigBang ideas because although I thought I had one totally picked I'm wondering on another one. I'm having trouble picking!

Capping SPN makes me want to icon it like whoa, too. I want to icon SO BADLY as well but again- tired. Lame.

I was looking at [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt today and saw a set of photos from a Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) photoshoot. My first thought was, "oh my. That's... right." And then my second was, "He totally secretly fanboys Jensen Ackles."

Judge for yourself )

Fanboy or just a photog without an original idea? You decide!

I've been drawn to the dark side. No, not bandom. ;) Kidding. No, the dark side is Hannah Montana.

Okay, see, last night I turned the channel to whatever while I was doing homework. And it was the episode where Hannah/Miley/whoever got caught by a paparazzi outside her house because her brother locked her out. When he came out the photog took her picture and angled it as them being boyfriend/girlfriend. And Hannah went along with it and pretended to be her brother's girlfriend for some reason.

I was all- seriously? Disney went there? So I was intrigued. I dled the pilot episode to find out just what this shit was all about. And I laughed quite a few times! Except that everyone seems to YELL their lines so they echo in the studio I thought it was pretty fun.

So now I'm dling the second episode. And then probably the third. And maybe the fourth.


I probably shouldn't because I'll likely fall asleep but we're going to go see August Rush. Good times!

Sorry for it, btw.

Firstly- want to make your issues with LJ knows? There's a post for it now. Most of the comments are really well thought out, valid and smart.

Secondly- Can anyone clarify for me the details on how tickets for the Spice Girls shows were sold? Did people register for a number and then when they went on sale they used that number to TRY for tickets? Also, it was announced on July 27th that tickets for the Vancouver show were going to go on sale, right? But does anyone know the date they went on sale? I'm looking at sites here and there but I don't see any dates on when they were announced/went on sale.

It's all for what I hope will be a good cause.

I have absolutely what this takeover means for us. I'm confused, moreso than a lot of other people. But I just looked up SUP to see what I could find and I have some links, if you're interested.

- The post in [livejournal.com profile] news, for those who have NO idea what I'm talking about when I say LJ's been bought out.
- SUP's website
- Brad's view of the partnership between Six Apart and LJ from November 2006
- A (Russian?) blogger's view of the partnership from 2006
- Another blog about it from 2006
- [livejournal.com profile] dolboeb - A guy who works for SUP, I believe. A CEO?
- Wiki on the guy who founded SUP, Andrew Paulson
- Mention of the LJ/SUP partnership (SUP bought the Russian part of LJ last year) and the attempt to change Russia's image in the US
- Last year's post about the LJ/SUP partnership from [livejournal.com profile] news
- Six Apart news release on the matter

I don't know if these links will help anyone but there's what I could find in two pages of Yahoo-ing.

I think what I kind of get from all this is that everything that's happened in the past eight months has been put in a new perspective. I don't know what to think right now about it and I have no idea if I think of the past eight months (re: adult flagging, adult content under scrutiny, the deletions, etc, etc) in a better or worse light. It'll all depend on what the next few days bring, obvs.

If anyone has any other information or POVs to bring up or persuasive arguments one way or the other, I'd LOVE to hear them. All this stuff confuses me so if you can make it clearer or give me other ways to look at it, please share them.

LJ has launched their new "adult content" flagging system. If you all check out your flists you'll notice a really ugly new button adorning each entry. I can't wait until the people blessed with coding skills override the systems to change that shit out.

Details are here in the [livejournal.com profile] lj_biz community but from a comment in that post it seems this info has been buried in another post in the actual LJ news community. Spread the word, flag your own entries and, I guess, wait to see what happens? I don't know.

There's still no word on how things will go if someone flags your entries and the post/journal goes up for review with the LJ team and how the appeals process will work. Apparently if your entries are flagged a lot, then it draws the attention of the LJ team which I guess is good if you accidentally hit the button.

[ETA] I've just tested out this new thing. I set my over-all journal content (you do that here) to explicit (I don't know exactly what LJ is deeming to be "explicit" and what's simply an "adult concept" and they haven't come out and stated that officially AT ALL so I'm not going to debate it).

Then with the [livejournal.com profile] spn_watcher account, which didn't have a birthday set, I went to view my journal. My user info was fine. But when I tried to click into my journal I got a big page asking me to verify I was over 18. Fine, I did. When I got into my journal every single entry except for this one (because I flagged it as having NO adult content) has been cut-tagged with "You are about to view content that may only be appropriate for adults" as the tag line.

I went back and set the [livejournal.com profile] spn_watcher birthday to be 15 years old. When I tried to view my explicitly rated journal again I was greeted with a big page that said I was not allowed to view the journal because it contained content suitable for adults only.

So. This leads me to believe that a) there are going to be a hell of a lot of people lying about their age or b) there will be a lot of journals without birth dates. I'm thinking they'll be lying about their ages more cause seeing all those entries cut with that damn warning is ANNOYING. And EVERYTHING is cut, including images. It's weird.

I like the IDEA and it's not out of the ordinary but change sucks and this is going to be a pain in the ass.

In other news, I kind of want to do an icon battle like the one here. Anyone have any experience with those?

Here's the thing. I know people are going to look down on me for this. I know I'm going to get talked about, my name's going to be dragged through the mud and I'm going to lose respect from some people, and friends, and there are a lot of people that don't want to hear anymore wank or whatever. But at this point I don't really care because this is bullshit.

Feel free to skip this if you don't want to see anymore drama or want to know about the [livejournal.com profile] supernatural_tv stuff. At this point I don't think I want to anymore, either.

Long-ass post )

Now, with all that being said, I'm gonna go sit by the toilet because I feel absolutely sick.

The countdown to when I leave is getting more intense as the semester winds down. I'm so fucking ready to get out of here. Why did I decide to go back to school again? 24 sleeps, man. 24 sleeps.

Working on icons, working on the Ruby and Bela that may have Ruby/Bela undertones, working on editing my Sweet Charity fic from June, just working. Procrastination makes me so happy right now.

I'm reposting this since it went up at about 4am and no one was around. Also, because I really need a beta(s).

I need a beta for just under 4900 words of a Sam/Dean/John fic I've been writing for literally MONTHS. It's the fic for my Sweet Charity bidder from JUNE so I really, really would love someone ASAP. More than one would be great but given the pairing(s) I'm really, really, REALLY hoping for just one person with good grammar/voice/continuity/etc skills to step forward and help me out.


If you can help me leave your email in the comments and I can send you a link on google docs and it can be edited on there.

And to make this post fun for all: MUSIC! These are all songs that I've been listening to a lot lately. Please comment if you're snagging any.

Blink 182- Happy Holidays, you bastard- quite possibly my new favourite holiday song. :D
Sufjan Stevens- For the Widows in Paradise, For The Fatherless In Ypsilanti
Sufjan Stevens- They are Zombies, !! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back From The Dead!! Ahhhhh!- where my header lyrics come from
CSS- Music is my Hot Hot Sex- I haven't been listening to this one a lot since I just dled it tonight but it's the song from the iPod commercial.
Iron & Wine- He Lays in the Reins- one of my favourite Iron & Wine songs
Iron & Wine- Teeth in the Grass- another favourite Iron & Wine songs
Joni Mitchell- California- Quite possibly my favourite Joni Mitchell song
M.I.A.- Boyz- This song is AWESOME.
Maroon 5- Back at Your Door- I have that desire to write a fic based on every single Maroon 5 song from their 2nd album and this one is haunting me.
Tom Petty- Mary Jane's Last Dance- I've been listening to this one a lot for reasons that are beyond me. But when I do I think of Ruby and I don't know why.

♥ I think I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] ignipes and she wasn't sure of the exact wording. But it sounds good to me!

Ask me my fandom opinion. About fandom anything.

♥ I finally got last week's AND this week's Entertainment Weekly's. I've been thinking my subscription ran out but now I'm wondering if someone in the mail department is like- hoarding them and passing them around the office or something before sending them on to my mail box. :|

♥ I have to say I'm slightly taken aback by the negative reactions to last night's episode. But, whatever floats your boat, right?


Godfather Part III or Torchwood tonight? Hmmm.

So I found out tv-links.co.uk has been killed, the owner/creator arrested and possibly the moderators as well. Boooooourns. I loved that site, even if the quality wasn't always the greatest.

I'm taking drabble requests here and I even have one done! But I don't know if I like it, so I don't know. We'll see.

I've now watched all of The Office to date. I kind of curse [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt for having a post over there of the s3 bloopers and making it too easy for me to watch them and starting my descent into a new show I just shouldn't have gotten involved in. I'm not gaga over it and I don't feel the need to dabble in fic or icons or anything. I also kind of felt like s3 would have been an interesting end point for the series. If they go beyond another season I can see it sucking hardcore and it's already started a little. I can see why the British version kept it to two series only.

I've been trying to get through s1 of Friday Night Lights as well and although it's an interesting show and the characters are likeable I haven't latched onto it like so many other people on my flist have done. I've read so many posts about how each episodes brings tears to someone's eyes and normally that would be me (I cried at an HP commercial a couple weeks ago) but I've yet to feel even a prick in my eyes. In The Office, though? I teared up during cut for the people who are like me and have yet to see the show )

I'm rather excited for when s4 starts, even though I really don't have time for another show. Whatever. I don't watch any sitcoms anymore so this will be good for me.

So guess what?

I bit the bullet and signed up for Sweet Charity. I wasn't going to because I still haven't fulfilled the bids from the last round BUT! I've started the fic and made good headway today (and started what could be a really long fic and another short one both inspired by the songs like last nigh'ts) and [livejournal.com profile] __tiana__ and I have something worked out. *taps foot and waits for pictures*

I thought I'd only do icons but I'd like to offer fic, as well, so I'm doing them both again this time around. They won't be due until the end of December so I"m hoping I'll have lots of time to crank something out between now and then. Here's hoping! Check out my offers and all the other AMAZING ones by other people here.

Also, for some reason I sat down and started watching The Office today. I'm now dling a full s2 torrent as I type. *facepalm* I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR ANOTHER SHOW. Dammit.

Or hear about it tonight as I'm the only person working today. *makes face*

If you are new, or, hell, if you've been around a while, would you leave me a comment telling me how you got here? A certain fic? Someone recommended me to you? Horrible oversight? You thought I was someone else? (oops!) Other? Are you stalking me? Are you outside my window right now looking at me? If you are, do you have an umbrella? Because it's raining and I don't want you to get wet.

This is a really great meme for me because I usually don't remember where I meet people so if it was a friending meme or randomly or through someone else or WHATEVER, let me know. It'd be fun.

Also, congrats to [livejournal.com profile] estrella30 who had her baby last night! *smooshes Nan gently*
