Can I please get a redo for this year? Too much loss this year. Way, way too much.
Insomnia! YAY!

Eh, I came here with full intentions to write randomly at you all, but I am apparently awake yet not motivated to do anything. That is the form my insomnia is taking right now. Cool.

My mind has been taken over by those nasty, little school monsters. Luckily I have been able to distract myself by writing more fic. I am quite proud of myself for being able to keep up with them. Multiple chapters and everything. :D *pats self on back*

Now I think I'll wander off and watch some Iron Chef America before I sleep.


Love Inception?
Have lots of spare time and need some crazy tasks to fill it with?


Do you have what it takes to come out on top?

Writer's Block: What's under Snape's cape?

If you could cast one type of magic spell, which would you choose, and why?

This is quite possibly one of the silliest questions ever.

For purely selfish reasons: probably George Weasley or Sirius Black.

For curiosities sake: George Weasley - Because you KNOW he'd have interesting things on his person, jokes and mysterious items.
 and a dementor - because I have to know what they are besides floaty cloaked things. I want to know.

Writer's Block: They had it coming

If you could drop a character from your favorite TV show, who would you off and how would it happen?

I have a couple of favorites...but I'm gonna go with CSI NY.

Don't get me wrong, I love the entire cast. I think they are all amazing. I just really dislike the fact that they brought Lindsey in as such a strong female and immediately turned her into Danny's love interest before really expanding on her character. She had a lot of potential to be amazing. She had the one storyline in season 3 about her testifying on that case from her past, but even then it was just another stepping stone into Danny's heart. But every other time she had a storyline, it was directly related to Danny. Can't she just be her own character for once? So if I had to off anyone, it would be Danny (I love him, and I know people are going to freak out, and I am 99.9% sure that CBS would never be THAT stupid) purely to give Lindsey some room for growth. I just think it would be interesting to see how Lindsey would handle being a single mother and how the team would come to her aid. Or since they already fucked up her character anyway, maybe kill off Lindsey and let Danny have all that fun emotional turmoil. Though, I hate how the show has become Danny-centric in some ways. They have other characters that I would love to see have bigger parts. *coughadamcoughsid*

I actually was hoping they would have kept Danny in his wheelchair for WAY longer than they had him in it this season. It would have had more impact than just the couple of episodes and then BOOM he's back.

So, for the second part of the question: how?

Danny: I want to see something that we wouldn't expect from him...I don't want to see him going down fighting, I want to see him dieing because of something he can't control like a complication with his back or something. A blood clot. Something that he wouldn't have been able to see coming. I don't know why, I just think it would be strangely poetic. He's always been the one to step up and fight against things and the one thing he can't fight against takes him out.

Lindsey: Is opposite of Danny, I'd like to see her downed in a firefight. Again, I want to see her strong Montana-ness come back. Season 2 Lindsey was amazing and I miss her.
I haven't posted in a while so here I go with a list!

1. I am super excited for all my Harry Potter related things in the next 6 months. For Dragon*Con I am going as Molly Weasley and that costume is in progress as we speak (pictures later). I'm going to Harry Potter World in the Fall and am prepared to lose a chunk of money there. I want a bludger, dammit. Also, HP candy. The preview for the 7th movie is soon. *jumps in chair*

2. Job hunt is still kind of slow...soon hopefully.


4. I need to know what is happening in Doctor Who this Saturday. I. NEED. TO. KNOW.

5. Every time I number a new one of these I accidentally use the previous number. :/

6. I'm taking Fish Oil pills because my doctor told me to. I have noticed a change in my general mood. I know there have been studies about the effects of fish oil in depression cases but I don't know if anything of substance came out of them. Either way, I'm noticing a bit of a difference. Things don't seem to stick to me as much now, I can let things go. :) Not that there were many things sticking anyway.

7. I want more of my summer shows to start. Lie to Me isn't enough. Partially because it's technically NOT a summer show. The network just decided to stop it mid season and come back in the summer with episode 13. Kind of ruined the flow for me and I need to remember what happened in the first half of the season. I'm waiting for Blue Collar to come back and for Covert Affairs to start. I don't know if I'm going to like Covert Affairs but the promos look interesting enough and I'm willing to give it a chance.

8. I do not like thunderstorms. And since the Georgia weather is back to normal from that crazy drought, I have to get used to thunderstorms happening ALL THE TIME. Damn.

9. I have actually started writing the book I've been talking about wanting to write. I finally figured out how it's going to work and how it's going to start. I'm excited. :)

I think that's it...I'm going to get coffee with my friends tonight, maybe I'll have more to tell later.

Writer's Block: BFFs

If you had to pick a character from your favorite TV show back in middle school to be your best friend today, who would you choose, and why? Have you outgrown some of the characters you loved when you were an early adolescent?

Gilmore Girls was in it's youth when I was in middle school. If I had to choose one of those characters to be my best friend? I'd choose Sookie St. James Mellville. Yea, I want her to be my best friend. Or Lorelai. Or pre-season 6 Rory. Or Hell...the entire town would be awesome, but I don't think that's allowed.

Now If I actually had to go with a show I actually watched in middle school...I'd want Sailor Saturn to be my best friend. And Sailor Mars. Sailor Saturn because I'd have a lot in common with her and Sailor Mars because she is fiercely loyal to her friends. Sailor Moon always annoyed the crap out of me so she can stay far away with her annoying daughter. The rest can hang out with me.

Schoolwork and Glee

I hate the last stretch of the semester. It is always super busy and stressful. :/ And I always, always procrastinate. Even when I say to myself "no, not this time," I still end up wasting my time doing things that aren't my work until I end up having to stay up until really weird hours. This is actually true of every paper/assignment I have to do. I will insist to myself while working into the wee hours or the morning that "this isn't how I'm going to do this next time," yet it is the same every. single. time.

This is also the time of year where my desk and my room stay super clean. When I procrastinate but find myself without anything to fully keep my attention I will clean. If I find myself watching an episode of TV, I will clean during it. Strange but true. I guess it could be way worse.

So, in light of this fact, I watched last night's Glee while organizing my desk. I have a couple of things to say about it:
Glee - HomeCollapse )
