schmerica: (family)
I just added a bunch of random people to facebook, because I was bored. If you see an unfamiliar Erica [Unpronouncable Last Name] claiming she knows you, it is probably me.

Today we moved all my stuff out of Eugene. Which, huge pain? But now it is DONE. I am all DONE with it, and I don't have to go back down there till next year. Yay.

I finally watched the NCIS season finale tonight, and it made me go EEP! and OMIGOD! and EWWW and AWW. And then we got to the end and my mother and I both went "BUT-- BUT-- You can't just stop!"

CLIFFHANGERS. *shakes fist* Summer, go fast, okay?
schmerica: (important brilliant & complicated)
Last night I went ahead and deleted all 98 of my user icons. Then I went back and re-uploaded just about 25 or so, just the bare minimum. Then I gave them all NEW and EXCITING keywords (so everything from the past 5 years is labeled wrong, but they're pretty now). And then, to top it off, I went and changed my journal layout to something simple and clean and pretty.

It's like the internet version of those montages in movies and TV shows, the ones where the girl is standing in front of her mirror and slowly but determinedly chops off all her hair? Yeah. Take that, hair! I'M MY OWN PERSON.

Doctor Who update: I am caught up through "Fear Her". Two more episodes left of season two, and then the Christmas special, and then I'll be up to season 3 and the rest of you. Given the rate I've been going through these, I'm guessing that will happen by Thursday. Yay?

Last night continued the pattern of my dreams being all set-up and no payoff. Honestly, if my hormones are going to continue to be all crazy and fucking with my head, you'd think I'd at least get some dream smooches out of it.

I don't know about you, but I find few things creepier than the phrase "semi-aquatic rodent."

No, seriously, that is what this post is about )
schmerica: (ds: thatcher owns you)
I am having one of those moods. I'm a little more tired, a little less focused, a little more frustrated -- just a little bit off in a dozen tiny ways.

I want to be writing -- I owe both [ profile] shoemaster and [ profile] justbreathe80 something soon -- but I'm not. I don't have any more screencaps to share! I think we might all have said all we can on the topic of how much Ray Kowalski should be fucked by chicks.

I don't know, how are you guys all today? Tell me things that are making you happy. Tell me jokes! Show me pictures! Tell me the single clearest snapshot of the boys in your head right now. We all have to have some kind of tableau, don't we? Maybe Ray is driving the GTO and Fraser is watching him with that faint barely there smile of pride that Ray can't see. Maybe it is 2007 in the Northwest Territories and Ray gets home first from work and puts on Fraser's tea to brew on the stove. Maybe Ray is on his back on the kitchen table because they couldn't take the time to go to the bedroom, and his hands are gripping the sides while Fraser fucks him hard. I DON'T KNOW. YOU TELL ME! MAYBE THEY'RE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CHARACTERS, EVEN! Who knows what crazy stuff is happening here?

Hi. I have no fangirls here to get drunk and cuddle with. NOR any straight boys to make out with. My life is SAD, you guys. It really is.

Lalalalala. Hey, who wants to answer random questions for my curiosity?

1) What do you think is Fraser's favorite quality of Ray Kowalski? About Ray Vecchio? The Rays about Fraser?
2) What do you think is the thing Fraser finds most attractive about [whoever you think he is attracted to]? And vice versa?

Relatedly, I like it when people make them smooch. Oooh, or het smooches! Those are also go!

In conclusion, hedgehogs are scary.

[Um, if someone with a 646 area code just called me, I didn't answer because I am afraid of my phone. Hi.]

Being totally honest here: if I gave a list of the cities Boston, Chicago and Portland OR, would you -- without consulting a map -- be able to a) tell me which of them is closer to the North Pole than the Equator and b) tell me which one was southernmost?

I admit it, I wouldn't have been able to an hour ago. Geography is not especially intuitive sometimes.

Also, you guys, I don't know if I mention this often enough, but I am incredibly fucking lucky when it comes to my mother. I wish everybody could have someone as sweet, caring, funny and awesome as she is. <3<3<3

Apparently I am starting new medication soon. That's ... exciting. Hm.

I cannot stop listening to the 5 Mountain Goats songs I have on my iTunes. Or the song "Right Back Where We Started From" by Maxine Nightingale or "Natural's Not in It" by Gang of Four. Damn you, catchy soundtracks!

Also, every time I hear Regina Spektor's "Fidelity", which I love, part of me can't get past what an awesome example of glottal stops she gives.

Here are some things I learned today!

1) Chief Weber from Grey's Anatomy is also Brandon's boss at the Beverly Hills Beach Club on 90210.

2) Daniel Jackson's grandfather is Mort the coroner!

3) Man, when you are having a ridiculous craving for red meat and cheese and goop and grease, there is nothing to fill the craving like Carl's Jr. Yum.

4) I am one of the few people who does not at all mind the new update journal page.

5) I really need to learn to walk in high heels so I can wear awesome trashy girly shoes. Heh.

Anything interesting for you guys?
schmerica: (ds: campfire)
Um, I know it is not news to any of you? But menstruation is evil and soul sucking. Boooo.

Okay, let's try for a list of things that do NOT suck:

1) I just took a ridiculously long steaming hot shower.

2) My bed is super comfy and I have a pile of blankets and it's nice and grey and cool outside.

3) I managed to register for class for winter.

4) This time next week I will be home for Thanksgiving.

5) I have Friday Night Lights to watch! Edit: AND ncis! \o/

6) Waylon Jennings has one of the most comforting voices ever. I want to curl up in it like a blanket.

7) I can't stop thinking about this story and how much I wish it existed. (The jerkiness is the outer layer of the schmoopiest F/K relationship I've ever imagined, I swear, all love and need and hidden tenderness and protection. Between that and the F-V friendship nostalgia, no wonder I am enjoying this as perfect wallow fodder.) SIGH.

8) Another story I would kill for: A Very Special Twitch City Christmas. Where Curtis leans a very important lesson about the true meaning of the holiday! And Christmas is ALMOST ruined, but then it gets saved just in time!

9) F/K SNOW KISSES. Fraser's face is happy and his ears are pink and Ray is wearing a leather jacket that's not nearly warm enough and they're walking around with Dief on their day off. *SMOOSHES BOYS*

10) I am stealing this from [ profile] justbreathe80 the other day, because she got it stuck in my head: Vecchio calling people "baby." She was thinking mostly Ray/Ray, I think, but I'm stuck on Stella/RayV happily ever after. Canon het woot!

11) [ profile] fox1013 is the best raptor EVER.

For those of you who might occasionally doubt that fandom really does contribute anything tangible to your real life? I'd like to show you clue 19 Across in the crossword I'm currently working on:

[ profile] thefourthvine's post the other day about her imaginary fandoms is making me think again about my imaginary fandom. TFV had too much shame to talk about hers, but I have no such qualms.

See, in my head lives the imaginary miniseries of ridiculous kink fulfillment, which stars Paul Gross and Molly Parker as super rich partying Jazz Age twins and CKR as a poorer writer-or-artist that they sort of adopt as their pet, which starts out with just hanging out with them, staying at their house, going to party, and ends up getting more and more involved in their really twisted fucked-up personal relationship till he can't get out.

(Checklist: hot Canadians; incest; threesomes; fucked-up relationships; artists and their inspirations; decadence; 1920s historicalness and style... BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP WINNER.)

Today I spent like three hours translating a couple of lines of Matthew from Old Church Slavonic into English. I bet you wish your life was this exciting.

It is three hours until Heroes airs on the West Coast. It is only Mondays and Thursday that I truly miss having a television! *sniffle*

All the icons I wanted to use with this post are currently inactive. Bah!
schmerica: (other: canadian film)
ReGenesis! Done with episode 4 now. I haven't been commenting much as I watch, but that is because I don't really have much to say beyond "mmmmmmmm, Peter Outerbridge. Hot." He's awesome. Ellen Page is awesome. And, hey, Hugh Dillon is the least unattractive/most hygienic I've ever seen him.

Man, I am craving a Coke right now. I am still used to living just a block or two away from a store where I can run over real quick. How am I supposed to support my addictions now?

In conclusion, Greek is awesome. And cats are nice. And Ray Kowalski and Benton Fraser = OTP 4-evah. Woot.
schmerica: (wilby: photographs)
Jack and Diane, two teenage lesbians, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane's charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack's tough skinned heart. But, when Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week she tries to push her away. Diane must struggle to keep their love alive while hiding the secret that her newly awakened sexual desire occasionally turns her into a werewolf.

...That's the most recent entry on Ellen Page's IMDB page, for a movie listed as in pre-production for 2007.




Edited to add this cool photograph and this article where she talks about being a feminist. Ellen Page, stop being awesome.

So this week is Fraser/Vecchio week over at [ profile] stop_drop_porn, which I'm actually weirded stoked about! I feel about F/V much the way I feel about country music.

No, seriously, stick with me on this. People who claim to like everything and anything will make an exception just to exclude this genre/pairing; people think about it and automatically think of a bunch of cringeworthy stereotypes, so they can't any of the really cool shit that's actually out there. It makes perfect sense! (Um, to me.)

In conclusion, VECCHIO!

A conversation with [ profile] ficbyzee earlier has an AU bunny in my head that I don't think I'm actually qualified to write but which I am desperately intrigued by. GODDAMMIT ZEE. Must you always use your powers for eeeevil!?

I'm still reading Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, but I'm finding The Confusion to be slower going than Quicksilver, simply because I find thirty page action sequences much less interesting than people standing around talking. From the reviews I've read, I am very much in the minority on this.

You all know Due South Sekrit Santa is gearing up for its third year, right? All the cool kids are playing. You know you want to too!

Tomorrow is my first day of the school year. Ancient Greek, here I come!
schmerica: (alias: bristow love)
Do you ever have a day when you wish that you had, instead of little devils and angels, a miniature Jack Bristow to sit on your shoulder and give you advice and guide you through this crazy, crazy world?

I feel like that every day. Jack Bristow, come and fix my life! Be my spy daddy FOREVER!

Today I made curried cauliflower for dinner as a treat for myself for fixing up my resume and applying for jobs today. I'm always surprised by my treat turns out to be something that's actually really healthy, but oh man, it is so freaking good.

Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver: I am approximately one-third of the way through, which means I just finished the first book-within-the-volume-within-the-cycle. Mmmm, 17th century. Mmmmm, history of science. Mmmmm, big juicy book to lose myself in.

Zee keeps teasing me with the promise of writing Young Avengers Cassie/Kate femslash. I almost help she never does complete this, because I'm already her obedient servant in way too many ways.

If you understand my subject line, you get a shiny new nickel.

Today when [ profile] speshope and I were at the mall, we stopped at one of the stores to buy me a new keychain and wallet, since I was severely needful of both. The keychain I ended up buying is a tiny cheap one from Claire's, with a cute little duck. The best thing about it is -- I swear to God -- the duck appears to be doing nothing else but making PAUL GROSS WINGS. It makes me wish I had a digital camera to show you all, really.

Tomorrow: RESUME DAY. Oddly, not an official holiday anywhere on Earth. There's not any cake or parades, either. Alas!
schmerica: (pretty: maggie gyllenhaal cute)
Things on my mind this evening:

1) This dialogue of Fraser's, on love:

I thought I was in love once. And then later I thought maybe it was just an inner ear imbalance... We spent an evening snowed in on the side of a mountain watching the northern lights. It was probably the most dramatic moment of my life. But in the end I realized I'd learned two things. The first is... that it's easier to think you're in love than it is to accept that you're alone, and the second is that it's very easy to confuse love with subatomic particles bursting in the air. Well, I also learned that I should have my ears checked more regularly.

Emphasis mine, of course. Oh, FRASER. Just that sentence makes a million extremely vague bunnies pop into my head, and they're all wrist-slittingly depressing. Also, it makes me think of [ profile] katallison's Fraser, post-"End of the Road". Sigh!

2) Jeannie Miller's (and by extension, Kate Hewlett's) hips are a thing of joy.

3) Wait, Amy Acker had a baby? Two babies? Seriously? I actually really like her, but I am having trouble imagining her pregnant and a life-sustaining mass. Huh.

4) I pre-ordered the Grey's Anatomy s2 dvds. PLEASE COME NOW THANK YOU.

5) For people whose names rhyme with schmox1013: the second sexiest man in America is not only castrated, but apparently hates babies.

6) Marcia Cross is pregnant, too. Man, I skip my gossip blogs for a week and all this stuff shows up! So, uh, I guess this means she actually has heterosexual sex with that guy she married? Huh.

7) Tomorrow starts two weeks of Ray/Ray over at [ profile] stop_drop_porn, which means all the rest of you have to pick up the slack to give me my Fraser fix, okay? I would say you should all post more [ profile] getfraserlaid fics, but, you know, pot throwing stones at the glass kettle.

8) I am in LOVE with my giant room and my tiny cute house and BWEE.

9) Back to reading more of Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver while I wait for more NCIS to download.
schmerica: (ds: confused puppy)
Do any of you ever find yourself having a conversation in real life and suddenly want to burst out with "PAUL GROSS ARMS!" as a cry of triumph, only to stop yourself just in time by remembering that it would make less than no sense to anyone you're trying to communicate with?

Yeah, I thought so.

schmerica: (clue: tim curry explains it all)
I just got home from my math final, which means I am officially done with summer classes. I have to go home to my parents' house for a few days, but they're not picking me up until Sunday. This means I have three days with no classes or schoolwork or important responsibilities to fulfill.

I think you can all see where this is heading. SEVENTY TWO HOURS OF VIDDING FEVER, WOOOT.

(Not really seventy two hours. I will sleep a lot, and eat, and probably clean. But VIDDING FEVER NONETHELESS.)

I've already mentioned how much I loved [ profile] laurashapiro and [ profile] pipsqueaky's Fraser vid, Goody Two Shoes, but I feel a need to mention it again, because I love it JUST THAT MUCH. I got out of my class and sat down at the bus stop to wait and suddenly the vid came into my mind and I thought "FRASER!!!! AND HIS RAYS!!!" and I couldn't get the doofy smile off my face for twenty minutes. Heart.
schmerica: (farscape: aeryn sun)
1) Still rewatching season 3 of Farscape. OH SHOW! I have to say, though, "Eat Me" is the creepiest fucking episode ever. It is like a mini horror movie. I made Fox cuddle and hold me when I was watching last night -- but it's a really important episode for the entire rest of the season, so!

2) Articles which refer to a father caring for his child as "babysitting" are incredibly irritating and make me raise all my feminist rankles. On the other hand, Ben Affleck and Jen Garner are still adorable.

3) Crab rangoons, you are a beautiful, beautiful foodstuff.

4) People have started posted their vids from VVC, yay! From what I've seen so far, I'm especially fond of "I Put You There" by [ profile] laurashapiro and [ profile] lithium_doll (meta) and "Goody Two Shoes" by [ profile] laurashapiro and [ profile] pipsqueaky. FRASER! And his RAYS! In no universe is that not squee-making. The post for both of them is here.

5) Fox seems to think I am trying to slowly make her want to watch Farscape. Which, I mean! Just because I giggle evilly when she mentions Ben Browder and Claudia Black being adorable on SG-1! And talk an awful, awful lot about how incredibly fucking hot Aeryn is! And mention the Muppets and explosions! And show her pictures of pretty girl touching! )

But, nooooo. In her mind, everything's a plot!
schmerica: (mwb: so pretty)
1) Out of context theater:

[ profile] fox1013: being nice HURTS
[ profile] pearl_o: *pets*
[ profile] pearl_o: that's why god invented chat.

2) Zee and Livia have been successfully introduced to the complete and utter awesomeness that is Slings and Arrows. Rachel McAdams, how are you so adorable? Paul Gross, how is your Geoffrey voice total porn? Don McKellar, why do you make me squeak every time you are on screen?

3) The thing about having a depressive episode in the middle of summer is that you can't curl up under a pile of blankets in your bed for comfort. This is another reason I obviously just need to live my whole life in the most frigid of air conditioning.

4) I am ready for the Twitch City dvds to be out, if only because I am pretty sure I have found the song I want to vid it to.

5) Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle = way cute.

6) The pilot episode of The Sentinel = way gay. Also, Molly Parker is still smokin' hot.
