OK Flist, I am freaking the fuck out about Results Day tomorrow. So, I want to know your top 5 Bullet-Proof Kinks and your 3 Favourite Pairings (and anything else happy and non-stressful that you want to send me).

I'll go first )

So, what do you all think? Or were you just waiting for the pretty?

Hello LJ, long time no see. I think I got lost there somewhere in a haze of not sleeping properly and trying to sort out visas...

Have a book meme (which I stole from [ profile] badfalcon:

Choose 10 books that you like. List the first sentence or so of each of those books. Let other people try to figure out what book that first line is from.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... )
echoing_dream: (General: Shoulder Blades)
Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Name 10 songs you love starting with that letter.
[ profile] badfalcon gave me T

Take my Breath Away - Berlin (as in, the Top Gun version when he's riding out to see Charlie *sighs*)
Te Amo - Rhianna
Telephone - Lady GaGa
There You'll Be - Faith Hill
These Exiled Years - Flogging Molly
This Love - Maroon 5
Time Stops - Explosions in the Sky
Too Much Love Will Kill You - Queen
Trouble - Pink
Two Out of Three Ain't Bad - Meatloaf

I somehow managed to sunburn my eyelids. IDEK! Who burns their eyelids!? It's very inconvenient. Plus, I have weird tiger-stripe burns down my back where I got distracted while applying suncream. Ouch.

This is an audience participation meme, requiring audience participation *beams*:

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes office supplies." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well). Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.

I hate real life. It gets in the way so much!

[ profile] idrilfinial and [ profile] stoptheraptors: I missed both of your Birthdays because I am a horrible person. Forgive me?

My life is a boring mess of Henrician Britain, Stalinist Russia and Feminist Propaganda. None of this is fun. Occassionally my boys also loose some rugby, just to cheer me up. Is fun. Bring on the summer!

30 Days Meme )

Also, please point me at anything fun/important/interesting floating around on LJ or teh interwebs that I've probably missed.

Stolen from [ profile] temporal_witch who apparently is NOT an HTML tag:

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks... what's your ideal fic from me?

Apparently, reading explicitly suggestive poetry is not conducive to holding my trains of thought. I do love it when I'm not the only one with my mind in the gutter though...

On a slightly related note: I've noticed I listen to different bands according to what fandom I'm writing for, and sometimes there are different bands for different pairings (eg. Rudy/Pappy have adopted Owl City, Queen is for writing Torchwood fic.). Am I the only person that does this?

Stolen from [ profile] temporal_witch , who gave me these to choose from:

Jensen Ackles, Christian Kane, Dean Winchester, and Toshiko Sato (because she loves me like that)!

Cliff: Hmm. I'mma steal Amy's idea and cliff Tosh as she is already dead. But there will have to be much apologetic shagging beforehand.

Shag: Dean. Dean is amazing, and kinky as all hell, but I think he'd break me if I tried to keep him, and a snog just wouldn't be enough.

Marry: Jensen. Because he's sweet and just a little bit shy.

Snog: Chris. Did you see him kissing that girl goodbye in Leverage? *sighs*

To play, comment and I'll pick you four choices of your own! Name your fandoms, and I shall comply!

1. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
2. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
3. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Mostly, I'm using this wallpaper because my screen is 1440x900 and it's really hard to find anything that size. I love the colours in this picture, the purples and blues and the general sunset/early eveing feel to it. The real draw is the mountain range, especially with the snow. I also like that it's personal enough that I feel attached to it, but not so much that I hesitate to lend my laptop to other people (though I do have to lock some of my folders before I do that). Also, I think that if I had a picture of Jensen (like I do on my desktop) or Taylor, I'd never get anything done because I wouldn't want to open up any windows...

Yesterday I was not-confused for a whole three minutes during my entire shift. This was very exciting.

Today is my only proper day off, since I somehow talked myself into going with my Nana to visit her brother on Thursday, because she was struggling with the directions. I offered to drive her, but she said she'd rather I navigate instead. So I'm going to spend my other day off work being lectured. *sigh*

I need to catch up on Leverage. I used to watch it religiously, but I forgot it was restarting, and now I'm something like 5 episodes behind? Which is a little crazy. I need to move to America, you guys get all the good TV. But not QI. QI is mine!

Amy tagged me, so Have a Meme )
