let's go, don't wait (this night's almost over)

(Blink 182 came on at the restaurant where I was having dinner with my mom earlier. Of course I had to sing along!)

I'm working on getting my laptop all better after it fell off my bed and fucked up the hard drive. Head crashes are not fun, let me tell you. Basically running what I had in August, thanks to a complete backup, but I still haven't recovered anything since then :(

Also working furiously on my fic for [ profile] bandomreversebb. Going is slow, but what can you do. I just want to do the mix justice! *bites nails*


What's new with you?

i am become death

a mix for [ profile] mixedvolume's Challenge 5 which was to make a mix based off a fic or fic idea. I used [ profile] dreamdustmama's Echoes of Yesterday, which is now a 'verse!!! This is more based off the original. Not maybe your most typical band selection for a mix, but I wanted to try to get more of that gritty feel that's so amazing about the fic.

but he imagines, and for a while, it's enough... )

if life ain't just a joke, then why am I laughing

1. Reply to this post with “MORTICIA”, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

From my darling [ profile] neon_footprint:
Katie rambles about icons )

So, these dudes had some birthdays the past few days.

Quality tweeting ensued including this:

(Just in case you didn't know, Ryan/Spencer BFFness is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I just want them to have combined birthday parties at laser tag forever okay?)
If someone wanted to make a RYAN AND SPENCER BEST FRIENDS FOREVER spam in honor of their birthdays I wouldn't complain. JSYK.

I watched Sherlock! Finally! It was love. I made some icons and stuff, it was great. Will get around to posting them hopefully soon. Want to round it out with a few more Merlin ones before.

Speaking of....Isn't it about time for some new Merlin shenanigans? GETTING IMPATIENT. Nearly finished another ficlet for that comment meme thing I did. Slowest writer ever /O\

Help Wanted

So, my friend [ profile] nyxelestia is looking to start a new resource comm and is looking for some help either with the running of the comm or with indexing posts on delicious.

It's a really cool idea:

So, there are lot of research comms/sites out there, but what I want to start is a resource comm - a place to pool and find resources on a topic you're writing about. An user can post saying they're writing about a war, event, time, place, ect., and people will offer recs and resources to help them out.

The goal is to have both an LJ comm and a Delicious account tagging posts and individual resources. I'm currently trying to work out/set-up a tagging system for both (on LJ, archive links will only be to tags and posts, while on Delicious I'm hoping to eventually tag individual resources/links).
If you're interested in helping out (or just want to talk about the idea!) her post is here. Definitely check it out for more details.  It's one of those things I think we all have wished for at some point :p

you know what sucks?

when you go to get a prescription filled that you've been taking for months, and every time the pharmacist wants to warn you about how OMG YOU COULD DIE!!1! if you're an idiot and don't take it regularly.

Like, thank you, I know. My psychiatrist has informed me. Every time he sees me. And especially before I started it.

Also, just because I didn't get my prescription filled at your pharmacy last time doesn't mean I'm lying when I say I have been taking it, thanks. Way to make me feel like I'm being interrogated. I know the dosage is increasing, I can actually read, and yes, I'm going out of the country while increasing, but I've been on the meds at this dose before, and it's fucking Canada, not Nepal.  I think I can cope, and if I can't, my psychiatrist, who actually, like, works with me, can. This isn't being prescribed by a family doctor. He's clearly a freaking specialist.

the end.

alternatively, my body hates me and all this goes on while I feel like puking and my head's exploding. I welcome death.

SO. I am headed out of the country for a week, leaving sometime in the wee hours between Friday and Saturday. I'll be in the literal middle of nowhere, Canada, with no internet, or even cell service, so if you're looking to get ahold of me, I'm not going to see anything until Saturday at the earliest.


If anyone would like a postcard from the wilds of Northern Ontario, I'd be more than happy to send you one. Just let me know and pm/email me your address :) We all know how much I love sending mail, so :p

Love you all ♥

So Panic!'s new album they put up on facebook

Vices & Virtues, dudes. I don't even know. I'm just so freaking happy with it. It's just...damn. It makes me fall in love with them all over again.

I know that some people are probably not going to like it - it's definitely more poppy - but ugh, I just. I love it.

Even though some of it makes me cry and wince and go 'ow'. Seriously. There is simply nothing worse than knowing how it ends. MY CREYS.

This has been a pointless post. Have a cookie.

those watermelon smiles...

So! I signed up for [ profile] paperlegends as an artist and a cheerleader. And I learned you can sort out author/artist pairs yourself. The more you know, eh? Not that I'm brave enough to ask people, lol.

But anyways. I decided I need a schedule for things to do.

organization! )


rl news: I has job! Retail, not too many hours, but I think it'll be good :) And can it be spring yet? I'm sick of snow!!

oh look meme time

 Yeah so stealing these from [ profile] xaritomene 

The Works In Progress meme. Open your WIP file and post the names of all your documents, regardless of of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Feel free to ask about anything and I'll tell you the premise or paste you a tidbit for any of these. HAH.
random titles that probably make no sense )

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or first and second line if it's completely impossible) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (instrumentals skipped, obvs.)
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

lots of lyrics )
