I'm finally able to admit that I won't be able to catch up with what I missed over the holidays. I'm sorry.

If you had joys or tears, I offer hugs.

If you had requests or questions, I offer hugs.

If you've posted fic ... I'm offering hugs until I can get through what seems to be a HUGE list, what with several fests in different fandoms. I'll get there eventually if it's the last thing I do. I'm also aware that it may be the last thing I do. ;)

I hope your year has started well and look forward to sharing the coming year with you all.

Love you lots. <3

I love Mr wf, but sometimes I despair. I bought him Band of Brothers on dvd LAST CHRISTMAS because we always stopped to watch it when it was on tv. He ignored it. It sat in plastic wrap for 11+1/2 months and I respected that. I said today that I was going to crack it, because I wanted a re-watch.

Turns out that because there was an advert on the back of the packaging for The Pacific, (which he tried, but didn't get into) he thought I'd bought him The Pacific. BECAUSE HE COULDN'T TELL AFTER ALL THESE YEARS THAT I'D KNOW HIM BETTER AND THOUGHT I'D GET HIM SHIT I KNEW HE WOULDN'T LIKE! :/

Because w/e - he's just some random guy in my life.

On the upside, he's seen and enjoyed Inception more than any other film besides "Ice Cold in Alex". So, I guess I still have to love him. :rolls eyes:

I suddenly have no variables on my user pics when I'm posting (the option of whole fandoms are missing). WHY?

Well, I'd just about now be due for renewing my paid account - if lj hadn't extended my account by weeks because of so much time off-line this year. But, I now have limited use of PAID FOR resources. Otherwise, what's the point of offering to extend the account??

COINCIDENCE?

Yeah, I very much fucking doubt it.

So very, very fucking grumpy right now. >>o(((((

I dare someone to tell me I'm wrong, because I don't think that's going to happen

There are just moments one has to indulge oneself.  Here's mine.  If I was suddenly given a million, I'd spend enough of it to enable an all-expenses-paid gathering in a location dictated by nothing more than fandom whimsy.  The itinery would look something like this:

DAY ONE
12-1  Meet & Greet: Putting names to faces (online names only, no personal information required)
1-3  Lunch - General cuddle-fest
3-5.30  Viewing of Inception
5.30-6.30  Free time ('cause no-one's going to opt for anything but film discussion)
6.30-8  Dinner - General discussion of the film Inception
8-late  Suit-porn discussion group/pajama party

DAY TWO
11-12  Breakfast (because no-one got to bed early the night before, why try to have breakfast earlier, yeah?)
12-1 Arthur's trousers workshop
1-3 Lunch - Rare-pairs discussion groups
3-4 Eames' stubble workshop
4-5.30 General cuddle-fest
5.30-630 Free time (cuddle to your heart's content)
6.30-8 Dinner - film meta & Nolan worship-fest
8-late BAMFs, guns & criminals discussion group/pajama party

DAY THREE
11-12 Breakfast (see day 2)
12-1 'How the hell does the PASIV work, anyway' workshop
1-3 Lunch Switching: top!Arthur/top!Eames discussion groups
3-5.30 Viewing of Inception - the 'quote every line, squee before the action actually happens' free for all
5.30-6.30 General cuddle-fest
6.30-8 Dinner - hot man-on-man action discussion group
8-late - So long, farewell, and thanks for all the dreams/pajama party
 
 
 
I'd pay good money to have as many peeps in this fandom in one place as possible for that.  Especially for the daily cuddle-fest. <3

Hello world!
we_re_flamingos: (Default)
I'm already a couple of tissues down, so I'll keep this brief.  I've felt bad all week about getting back to the love meme to leave more love, but uni and work and friends and family and rl in general have been swamping me.  Anyway, the last thing I expected to see when I got there was me.  I'm so often left in genuine awe of your talent and creativity and I feel like I do so little for fandom besides love it (and by it, I mean you), so to see the kind things written there, well, you've made my day/week/month/year.  I'm so deeply touched - you have no idea.

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
*__*    YOU'RE ALL SO AWESOME AND I LOVE BEING IN FANDOM WITH YOU!!!    *__*
<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

I feel so privileged to share the flail with such a wonderful bunch of people.  I just want to get you all in a big hug and squish you all 'til you're gasping.  There's a reason why there'd been an 18 month gap in my frequenting of fandoms and the past 9 months have dispelled them all.  Thank you, so, so much.  

Well, now that I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, I think I'll go just one more tissue (and a nice cup of tea), listen to that lecture I missed and then get back to spreading the love.

OK, I've gone and done it.  Expect me to turn up in your twitter or dw life in the next week or so if you're there.  lj's just been driving me nuts - I'm still here, not going anywhere, but I need alternatives during downtime.  Wasting the hour I've scrounged together for fandom is getting too hard, so I need alternatives.

It's been a rumour for so long: http://www.slashfilm.com/joseph-gordonlevitt-alberto-falcone-the-dark-knight-rises/

Not my first choice of character (I was hoping for Nightwing, but knew it was a long shot), but all things considered, it's not a disappointment.  It should be epic.

Just for anyone who may be interested in (at least) the whole 'try before you buy' approach.  LJ have a free 2 week trial on offer.  Have at, people.

<lj user="cunning-croft"> posted this manip and I love it.  I just really do.  Enough to share, even.  It's pressing so many buttons (No, not JUST those buttons.  The other buttons, too,).




It was originally posted here.

Have a Merry Christmas or a great day off, whichever, it's all goood.  I've finally done everything: Decorations are done, food's prepared, pressies are wrapped and I'm suitably suited and booted.  I have half an hour for a coffee before heading into the chaos that is Christmas at my sister's house.  I'm finally feeling the warm and fuzzy that only comes with the anticipation of spending time with a large slice of family.  The bitching comes later ;)

So while I have the time and the warm fuzzies I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you all the very best and to say, "Chin up!  It'll all be over in a couple of days." XD

So, 8th Dec release in Australia and I'm TRYING to be patient.  Then a mosquito decided to have a feast on my right foot last night and I made a trip to Coles for the Stingose.  And there it was.  

I swear there was a chorus of angels singing as I spotted it.  I couldn't hand the 25 bucks over fast enough.  Five over the best price I've seen advertised, but I HAD TO HAVE IT!  Someone obviously didn't get the memo about the release date (the Kmart next door did because I checked in case I was going mad).

BUT NOW I'M AT WORK!  D:  I wonder if I could fake the sudden onset of bubonic plague in order to be sent home ....

I had planned to get some study in today, but it's a fair bet that's just not going to happen now.  I think it's almost worse knowing I have it but can't watch D=

Still, YAY!!

For those of you who'd enjoy it, [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina has a multi-fandom rec thread at http://cherrybina.livejournal.com/178506.html.  I only got through the first 10 or so posts in the time I've had this evening (which I ended up doubling, but I have to sleep now) and I'm enjoying myself immensely.  I've found some old fics I'd lost or forgotten and some I haven't read before.  GO CONTRIBUTE.  I was too busy reading to do that yet, but I will when I'm not in the middle of my hell week.  Is it Saturday morning yet?

The weirdest part is being a little nostalgic for Inception fics I haven't read in ages.  IT'S ONLY BEEN A MATTER OF MONTHS!  HOW THE HELL DOES NOSTALGIA COME INTO IT??  I can understand with some of the other (older) fandoms, but INCEPTION'S ONLY BEEN A MATTER OF MONTHS!

Enjoy!

Also, 174h15m 'til I can buy the Inception DVD.  Not that I'm counting ;D

Greetings, All.  

Go read <lj user="Starlingthefool">'s Skin Deep on AO3 at archiveofourown.org/works/131263.

Go!  NOW!

It's an Arthur/Eames AU/Alt back-story and I JUST DON'T HAVE WORDS. XD   I admit to some investment - I spent an eternity following it as a WIP on the kink meme (community.livejournal.com/inception_kink/11941.html) but, YAY!, it's finally finished and she's edited and posted it in full.

TRUST ME!  IT'S 17K'S WORTH OF BAMF-TASTIC MUST READ!

N.B.: May also include gratuitous sex. :)

Now THAT is funny.

Sigh.  Well, I'm off to explain to my boss what I was laughing at  D:

 I don't know if I'm the only physics nerd here, but I have to share this:

just in case.

'Cause just the thought of them chatting makes half my ideal-dinner-party-answers come true.
