Still have hours left of work, coworker sick again.

Still doing an insane amount of other people's work.

Anyone want to ask me fannish questions?

  • I have to wake up in an hour and forty minutes. Is it even worth going to bed?

  • Also, I chanced going on my tumblr for ONLY FIVE PAGES - got a slight Cap 2 spoiler. That will fucking teach me. The worst part is I totally knew better. (And it was my fucking tumblr savior's fault, too.)


  • Anyway, meme time:

Fandom Tennis Match Meme:

Okay, here's how this is going to work. You comment with a fandom question. I answer it and then ask you a question that has some thematic relevance to the question you asked me.

I am going to try and get a manicure tomorrow, because my cuticles are things of horrors, but I have no clue what color to pick.

Do I go for a lighter, spring color?

Classic red?

Some dark jewel toned color?

Black, which I can never put on correctly when I do it myself?

Flist, feel free to throw in your two cents.

  • I downloaded one tab to try and get my chrome into something less overwhelming and more sane. I did not even realize the insane number of tabs and windows I had open until I was moving my to-read tabs into one window.

  • My roommate went and bought a whole bunch of hagaan daaz ice cream. When I opened the freezer I almost had a heart-attack - for a second I thought that I'd gone on a binge and completely forgotten it.

  • I'm unexpectedly going to my mom's house this weekend... and bringing two garbage bags of laundry. I'm 26. I am 100% positive that my mom is going to sell her house and move out of the country before I stop bringing my laundry home.

  • Speaking of my mom, we got into a Sif/Thor vs Sif/Loki 'discussion' this morning. 'Really, Loki?' she goes. 'There's unintential subtext, so much of it,' I said. 'Okay, bring Thor, we'll watch it this weekend.' Little does my mom know I have been training for the glory of Loki x Sif = king and queen of asgard since the first movie.

I'm in the last stages of a cold, and am basically too tired to do much more than scroll through tumblr and answer comments.

The height of my productively today was returning to the library (after I already left) because I'd forgotten to get my tax forms). There's no way I'm doing taxes today. I have the mental energy of a koala. It's basically 'count down the hours until bedtime' time.

So, like, comment?

I am facing six straight hours of data entry (I'm entering insurance write-offs). If there is anything you want me to ramble about (real life or fandom), pairings you want to hear me discuss, tropes you want to know my opinion on, now is the time to shout out.

Randomly, why does fucking hate me? I've listened to several of my fav stations so long they've mutated (my Florence + The Machine and Cosmic Love stations have both stopped playing Florence + The Machine, to give you an idea) and stopped playing songs I like and I haven't been able to find a good seed song.

Also randomly, I really wish LJ was perky enough to have a friending meme running. I wish LJ was perky enough that I didn't NEED a friending meme to get new people on my flist. I wish LJ was perky enough that the people currently on my flist posted more. Le sigh.

  • I am 75% sure that my iPod Touch is dead.

  • I'm taking it in tomorrow to see if the people at Apple can fix it, and it not, I'll probably be buying a cheap mp3 player until I can save up (this month also saw me buying a desk and two pairs of running shoes). Which will mean no more checking my email or reading fanfic at work, the tragedy.

  • Speaking of, I'm bringing my laptop by as well, just to get it check out, and now I have to change my sexy, bloodied up dude wallpaper to something more appropriate.

  • I also dug out my old mp3 player, and once I cleaned out the leaking battery gunk and popped in a new AA battery, it worked impressively well. Except for the fact that I can't add or delete any new songs. Thank god I had good taste in music eight years ago.

I ended up posting fic and returning comments last night when LJ was being really wonky, so heads-up about that. Even thought I know very few of you have seen Blade: Trinity, so should still read it, because one fic is 3,000 words of porn and the other is ROADTRIP FIC + found family cuteness + trauma recovery, so, you know, I shoved three of my fav bulletproof kinks into 900 words there. (This may actually only be the second time I've written roadtrip fic, which totally needs to be corrected.)

gacked from [ profile] leobrat and [ profile] earnmysong:

Please ask me questions about my OTPs in the comments! Any questions! All questions! Deep questions! Silly questions! Ship questions. (It doesn't even really have to be OTPs. Basically, anything you know I have ever shipped. And maybe even anything I haven't. And, let's be serious, I could talk about certain adorable dorks for freaking ever, so let me do that. Okay? Okay.)

Someone on my flist/dashboard was talking about a program they used to limit their time on tumblr, and I think I need to do that. Especially if it’s possible to set different time limits for different days. So if you know which program that is, let me know. The googling I did just showed me programs that just straight up blocked websites.

I was originally going to let myself have unlimited tumblr on the weekends, but let’s be real, Mondays and Tuesday are when I really need to gorge myself on tumblr, as the fact that I stayed up until four a.m. on monday night (totally responsible life choice) looking for people’s Teen Wolf graphics and reaction posts demonstrates

empressearwig posted a question meme in the hopes of perking up LJ, and that is a call to battle I will never walk away from.

If you want to play, answer the questions below, switching out and adding new questions as desired.

1. Are you a shower in the morning or at night person?

Both. Definitely in the morning, and if I had a hard day at work or went running after work, it's definitely time for another shower.

2. For what television series are you completely satisfied with the amount of canon that aired?

Wonderfalls. That show has a beginning, middle, end, had several romances that developed and ended in interesting and/or satisfying places, and told a complete story in its thirteen episodes.

3. Newest musical discovery.

4. Do you have certain things you wear everyday?

Like a signature piece of jewelry? Nope. I'm not that classy

5. Favorite fanfiction tropes.

Roadtrip fic, sex before love, pretending to be a couple, mistaken for a couple.

6. If I came to visit you, what thing in your city would I absolutely need to see/do before I left?

I live in Seattle, and I'd take you for a stroll around Pike Place and then up to the Space Needle. Yes, it's super-over priced (like WHOA) but if you're not from Washington, and you're unlikely to be in Seattle soon.... why not.

7. What's the worst job you've ever had?

Either when I was working in a ice cream parlor (hipster ice cream, not great boss, coworkers who didn't like me) or my post-college data entry job.

8. What did you do at recess in elementary school?

Got teased. Read.

9. Do you have a preferred highlighter color?

I am a fan of blue, but that's 'cause I like blue. Realistically, the classic yellow is my go-to. (Especially as it doesn't show up on copies.)

10. What was the first instant messaging program you ever used?

AOL! The one and only messaging program I used.

11. Oldest and newest icon.

I love that when I'm trying to work out the logistics of a sex position in fic, I can just scroll through my nsfw tag on tumblr and voila! reference pic.

Clearly I'm doing something right.

Working late, and soon I will get off work, go home, and try to convince myself to be insanely productive.

This is one of the times I hate how slow lj is.

A coworker is still sick, so I'm going in to work again today. Let me tell you, when my alarm went off this morning, my first thought was that it was a tragic accident. But no. Already counting the hours until I can crawl back into bed.

Pick one of my icons and I'll talk about it or ask me general questions about icons or ask me whatever.

You know how strict I am about these memes.

Questions (RL or fandom-y), comments, gifs, would be SO appreciated. If there's anything you want to hear me blather about, now is the time.

....Especially as I literally JUST FOUND OUT that a coworker is sick today, there is going to be about five hours this evening where I will be all alone in the offic.

I had about five posts that were written but not posted, so I'm going to try and knock those out today.

I introduced my mother to the hotness of Tom Hiddleston tonight.

I was describing a fictional character in a book who was played by Tom Hiddleston in my head (and who I wanted to be the love interest instead of the villian):

Me: yeah, with curly blond hair-
Mom: Ew.
Me: No, no, let my give you a visual aid - [pulls up tom hiddleson tag on tumblr]
Mom: Oh, he is hot.
