I'm not dead. Just haven't got much to say. Also, I've been working furiously on my big bang fic, which is eating my brain. It's about twice the minimum length, so yay?

Uhm, things. Nothing. Nothing much has happened at all lately. I did catch the oven on fire again a few days ago. There was that. I don't think Ryan ever noticed it, though.

I started taking Zyrtech yesterday because my allergies have got so bad that it gets to the point that I actually can't see from how badly my eyes would water. Ten tiny little milligrams of it.

It says 'may cause drowsiness,' which okay. Things do that. I took the tablet around 9am, and made it til about 3pm before it I was damn near falling asleep at my keyboard. So I figured I'd go take a bath and maybe try to wake up a bit, since that does actually tend to help.

The next thing I know, it's 2am and I'm in bed. I think Ryan put me there, because I don't remember going there under my own steam. Or maybe I did and just don't remember.

The point is, holy fuck.

Now I'm starting to get a bit stuffed up again, but I can't take another tablet until around 9am. Because it says on the label. And I can definitely see why.

I set up a new work area for myself today. I'd been previously set up on the sofa, but that was starting to get a bit cramped, so I decided to move everything over to the desk that was, up until today, covered in books. The books are now all in a very large big in the other room, and I had to completely re-do the way the TV and the other computer were all set up, which turned my quick project into about two hours of grief.

That mirror is going to go eventually. Whether by being covered with things I print out from the internet (assuming I can get my printer to remember how to print), or because I tear it off the wall, I'm not sure. All I know is that I don't like it, and why would anyone put a mirror right there? Augh.

wtf where are all my Eleven icons!? D: I should be able to find them under 'Eleven,' 'mop,' or 'gun.' And he's not there! D:

I did a tiny bit of work today in between all the icons I made.

I post loads and loads of icons over at [community profile] tweedandtinsel. This journal also doubles as a fic journal, but I've not been writing much lately though.

But icons. Lots and lots of icons.

So... I may be about ten pages in on a Fight Club parody fic for a certain other fandom. Or two.

I blame you, [personal profile] remindmeofthe. This is all your fault.

Two things

First: Three prompt posts on [personal profile] cabinpres_fic already? Jeez you guys! Keep it up! :D

Second: I just spent most of my early morning watching My Life in Film. Why does this show not have a bigger following? I have not laughed quite so hard in a very long time. Although, I do admit that the episodes probably fall extremely flat if you haven't seen the films they're based on.

That said, the Shallow Grave episode. OMG what is this thing of beauty? The Shining was pretty amazing too. And I have to say, it bugs the crap out of me that Jones apparently has no first name. I mean, he's so painfully public school, but still. His own mum even calls him Jones. What is that? Augh.

So. tl;dr, Richard Brook was on the Sherlock Universe's equivalent of Casualty, apparently. They call it Emergency, but it's pretty blatantly Casualty. And I, being me, have come up with a story line for his character and the circumstances under which his character was written out of the show. Which is basically a gender-swapped version of what they did to Lara (defended himself against his nasty boyfriend and went to prison for attempted murder, basically).

I was explaining this, and as a result the madness that is Casualty to Mike and BB, and then:

[08:38] bb: why
[08:39] bb: why do you like it?
[08:39] ~JumperFkr: Because it's the epitome of Murphy's Law
[08:39] ~JumperFkr: It's also kind of fun to try to predict which characters will get killed off/put on a bus/whatever
[08:41] streamfjord: ...I sort of want to read fixit for Brook on Emergency now
[08:41] streamfjord: wtf.
[08:41] ~JumperFk: hahaha I... win?

So, yeah. For the hell of it, I may write some meta-tastic Emergency fixit fic for Dr Brian Stokes.

I seem to have developed a big old embarrassing intellectual crush on Jim Moriarty.

I love iTunes. I swear by their Genius feature. I love that thing, but it is rather restrictive, in that it only works with what's on your hard drive. Which, sure. I've got close to 12,000 songs in my iTunes, so I get a great selection with the Genius feature. But I still only hear what I've already got. So, I set out to find something new that works on a similar level. Using iTunes as my control, I tested Last.fm, Pandora, and Spotify.

I went looking for several key features:

  • The ability to listen to a specific song, artist, or album at any given time

  • The ability to create a 'radio station' based on the selected song, artist, or album

  • The created radio station to start with the specific song or artist I selected to build upon

Most important for me were the listen to what I want when I want factors. I tested this by inputting Journey's Don't Stop Believin' and telling the services to give me music based on that song.

When I have asked you repeatedly to clean up the computer room because the mess became so bad that it actually broke my tablet, and when your not doing so prevents me from finding the chequebook so I may pay the rent, you are not allowed to make it out to somehow be my fault that the rent has not been paid.

I suck

So, I'm in the bath, as I tend to be. With my candles and watching Pete's Dragon on my phone. Because, you know, Pete's Dragon is awesome, stfu.

But the problem with watching things on my phone is that my phone gets text messages sometimes. And when it gets text messages, a Dalek screams "EXTERMINATE" at me. And I'm a jumpy, twitchy mofo at the best of times. I don't expect to be exterminated by a Dalek when I'm watching Disney movies on my phone in the bath.

So when it did happen, I had a massive flail. And knocked my candles into the bath. Hot wax everywhere, ruined the candles. General suckitude.

Bet you didn't see that coming, did you? Yeah, neither did I.

I'm tempted to do something vaguely ridiculous. I don't know, though. I'll sleep on it and see how stupid I still think it doesn't sound in the morning.

Vocalise a sudden and rather startling realisation that your blind spot, as it were, to RDJ may have something to do with the fact that the man looks remarkably like your dad.

Yeah, she didn't much like that. It was kind of hilarious.

For the curious, I've never seen my dad clean-shaven in my life. I probably wouldn't know what to do if he ever got rid of the ridiculous goatee he wears. Last night, [personal profile] errantcomment was linking around interview videos RDJ had done, and in one, he had a similar sort of ridiculous goatee to the one my dad wears, and it was a serious woah moment. I didn't really know what do do then, either.
