I got a sudden urge to read hard sci-fi. Normally I'm a soft sci-fi or fantasy kind of girl, but right now I feel the need to inject some reality into my life.

Time to reread the Mars trilogy, I think. Except... I always fall out of love with hard sci-fi before I get more than two thirds of the way through Green Mars. Maybe I should read something shorter? Suggestions?

I love my dorky show :)

I also have a really bad idea for a story. And I don't mean the good kind of bad.

My Merlina icon appears to have become my go-to icon for EPIC WRONG.

Bah!

Only new TV is keeping me going.

Stupid stupid meat space. Someone at work covered up a cock up, causing the cock up to multiply to a ridiculous size. Now we have to spend hours and hours fixing all the offshoot cock ups. Plus - I'm already swamped with work.

Grargh! *monster smash*

Dammit, my Dragon Cave is mostly girls. While a high ratio of female to male probably creates a calmer and happier society, it makes it damned hard to create eggs.

I have no idea what the plot was, I was too busy squeaking like a teenage girl, "Merlin! Arthur! Gwen! Uther! Morgana! OMG!"

This show is my happy place. It's ridiculous and often stupid, but I love it to bits and want to rub it all over my body.

Why ask me to Brit-pick, then argue with me over my suggestions?

I'd understand if it was something like the word 'store' for a shop. For certain types of shop 'store' is an appropriate and acceptable alternative. Arguing about something that's just completely wrong though - why ask my opinion if they don't want it?

People confuse me.

I had no idea Merlin was back on the 19th. Hurrah! I shall try not to angst too much about lusting after a man young enough to be my son.

Bwah ha ha ha!

So on my last post about the baaaaaby dragons, I used my Merlina manip (Doesn't Colin Morgan make a pretty girl?) and today Merlin the baby dragon matured enough to be sexed, and... it's a girl :)

I know it's silly to get so excited about what are, essentially, image files, but OMG, MY EGGS HATCHED!

OMG, one of my eggs is hatching! This has never happened before - they always die on me.

Too Literal

When writing from a prompt, can you be too literal? For example, a turn of phrase that means one thing in common parlance, and something completely different when read without metaphor/simile/etc.

For example: "All up in his shit"

or: "Man, my boss is really riding my ass"

I have this urge to be completely literal, and it's going to get messy *g*

I'm writing dS badfic, but my brain keeps wandering off to play with Merlin. I have to keep browsing my image folders for CKR's (non-existent) backside for inspiration. Which works for about half an hour, at which point Arthur is standing behind Merlin, grabbing at him, and whispering 'let me, let me' into his hair and...

I don't normally like cutesy-poo accessories, but omg waaant.

UG and the 'normal' spawn are off getting the house in Sheffield cleaned up for the new tenants. Leaving me and the weird kids to enjoy a dysfunctional weekend!

Muah ha ha - now it's time for monster movies. And when it comes to monster movies, we know what we like: glorious cheese. None of that classy shit for us, we like rubber snakes and monsters who zip up the back.

And so, to the cheesefest. First up, Python. AKA 'Wil Wheaton gets eaten'. And then a new addition to the cheese board, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. I have high hopes of the cheesiness of this movie, mainly based on the fact that it stars 80's teen pop sensation Debbie Gibson.

You can tell I was exposed to Jaws at an impressionable age, can't you?

I have the urge to write.

To write filthy porn.

And not the good kind. The kind that is barely disguised kink wish fulfilment. The kind of thing that really should just stay in someone's head for 'private time', but so often gets flung out into the fandom and makes anyone who reads it annoyed and slightly creeped out.

Of course, I could write it and keep it for private enjoyment, but I'm such an attention whore...

Help Help!

I need a Torchwood beta. It was written before S3 aired, so although it's futurefic, it's been Jossed. I need someone to agree with me that S3 is an AU check that it reads okay and isn't all... weirdified by the Jossing.

Plus, sort out my comma problem.

Bah!

I have renewed my webhosting with Servage. I don't do anything with my website, but I don't really want it to die either.

Ho hum.

The Wii Fit I bought today is teaching me to lean in a productive and healthy way!

Lets see how long this lasts. The only exercise I normally get is chewing beef jerky.

Woe is me

I'm purging my webspace. Everything I've done since 2001. It's not fun.

Russian hackers - I'm laying a curse on you. May your fingers knot and your dicks shrivel. May armed mobs mistake you for that paedophile they were chasing. May your bodies become infested with lice, and your loved ones turn to promiscuity, theft and substance abuse.

My suggestion for the first month of the [community profile] books book club is winning. Yes, we don't want all that literature, we want Good Omens!
