bending_sickle: (Invisible?)
Yesterday was my last day at my internship, and goddamnit, if I could network and socialize like I did yesterday when I was saying goodbye... I had lunch with my supervisor and the rest of my team (I was part of a team, yo, although that was more administrative than anything) and then ran around having coffee with different people and basically feeling like:



Today was Day 1 of freeeeeedom (a.k.a. unemployment) and tomorrow I'm off to Barcelona. I'll be back in a week with snazzy things (I will get books) and food, and then I'll continue this mad socializing things. There's a lot of stuff I need to do for that, stuff to get together and the likes, but I'm all headachey and I just managed to clean up the mad amounts of tabs I had open.

I seem to have gone from the saddest little llama, wibbling everywhere, to happy (if a bit "I've got noooothing to say" hence this post). This is weird. And my relationship with my mom's improved. I don't know what's going on.

In other news, I finally watched Alice and ngh, Hatter. (Trailer)

Also I'm slowly trying to get Time 3 spruced up to post (and to send to CreateSpace) but there's been a certain lack of motivation going on. Whelp. Hopefully this week I'll get the missing scene done (it might even just be a paragraph, but writing, ugh) and then it's just a hope and a jump.

So in the fine tradition of plugging my Nanowrimo into Wordle to make a word cloud, here's evidence of just how much Crowley derailed everything: Read more... )

This week seems to be the week of Good and Rarely-Had Food, considering yesterday's the chocolate mousse, huevos rancheros (fried eggs and fried corn flour tortillas? Heaven!) Plus, Dad brought home tamales this week because his office got together and ordered some made. I haven't had tamales since what was probably the last century, and these were alright. What I really miss from Mexico - apart from the deliscious sandwiches they made at my school shop and Pelón Pelo Rico - are falutas. Oh gods, what I wouldn't do for one of those... Today we continued the food trend with roast lamb, which is something we'd usually have in the summers in Spain and I'd wait for every year. Wee little lamb ribs are so deliscious! I don't care how cute they are!

In other - more international - news, Egypt is happening. In the more personal - potentially selfish - news version of this, because Egypt is happening, and other countries are also happening, the project I was working on - that job I had - has been cancelled. I'm going to get paid for January, but that's it. Back to the dead-end internship. *tries to kick self in the pants and get a move on with the job hunt* *fails miserably*

Yesterday I watched my first ever episode of Private Practice. I'd been seeing the promo for the episode all week for 4x7 and thought, well damn, that much drama has to be seen. I was a bit sad to see that Tim Daly wasn't as astoundingly hot as I remembered him from the Grey's Anatomy episodes 3x22-23 (but then, it's been 3 years). I mean, look at this sexy thing! embeded )

Well, the episode was good and dramatic and all that jazz but I stopped caring for a good long while because all I could do was flail and point and squee things that sounded like "Nicholas Brendon!" and "Xander!" Oh, it was so good to see him on the screen again! I haven't seen Nicholas in anything since Buffy ended, and it was so strange to see him even more grown up - where those grey hairs?!? Plus, it was absolutely delicious to see him be evil. I had a massive crush on Xander in early Buffy (well, until Angel swept me off my feet with the brooding angst). It was 1x06 The Pack that really kick-started the mad squee. (Even though it also peeved me the hell off because hyena packs are matriarchies and the males run away in terror from the females.) Even way back in 1997, I had a thing for lanky evil guys. Just look at the sexy! embeded )

Curious Sickle Fact: I always thought Nicholas Brendon looked a lot like Raine Maida (of the band Our Lady Peace), although this might have been influenced by my learning of the two's existence at the same time. However, the best evidence I can offer: Read more... )

Sickle's Brain Went Buh-Bye, Have Some Bullet Points Instead:

  • I got the first quote over on [livejournal.com profile] ljdq's Answers. Whoot whoot!


  • I've had sea shanties stuck in my head for ages, which is both awesome and annoying because I don't actually know the whole songs. So I've been humming bits of Lukey's Boat, Heave Away, Ramblin' Rover and Donkey Riding over and over again.

  • On that topic, Great Big Sea ♥ I watch ed them live years ago, and I loved it. (Or I would have, but I was in the deepest state of depressed funk that whole summer because I'd failed a course.)


  • I watched The Walking Dead last week (1x02) and while it was good, it didn't have the same shiny coating of awesomeness that the pilot did. Plus, it didn't help that I facepalmed at a little plot and science (yes! science! with zombies!) fail. Spoilers )


Nanowrimo 2010:

  • A few days ago I realized that my brain was going "Omg, argh, this sucks!" at Nanowrimo 2010, which was dispiriting because its perception of Nanowrimo 2009 was, "Omg, so organized, it flows so well and argh! Will never be repeated!" but then I saw that whilst I was doing Nanowrimo 2009, my brain was going, "omg, argh, this sucks!" So I guess I'm comforted by the utter suckitude of Nanowrimo 2010. It probably doesn't suck royally (just slightly). It might even make sense in the end!


  • Today's writing session was not so much like pulling teeth and a lot more like bashing my head repeatedly against a wall for the most part. I went back and added to the scenes I'd written yesterday, except one was Icarus, Chip and Dean talking and they didn't actually say all that much except angst and Dean wasn't being a hunter enough, and the other scene was Kezef being all ooooh, evil, but nothing was happening. I tried to fix it and I don't know if I succeded because of the massive amounts of SUCK but it's goddamn over.


  • Next up: Zombie hordes attack! ...this scares me a little, because it's all action with some plottyness on the side plus a reveal and then a panic moment. I do believe we're reaching the big plotty climax from which everything winds down. It's like I have a plot!

Nano is getting a bit better. I zoomed through most of Chip's afternoon instead of detailing it, which was a huge relief, although the patrol bit was a bit of an uphill struggle. It was necessary, though, to get the whole Kryptonite! Reverse kryptonite! effect, but ye gods, did it hurt to get on paper. Now I've got a lovely Icarus and Chip scene, which is going to be angst, angst, angst. (And possibly snogging, I'm not sure.) And then it's just a hop and a skip away from the infected invasion from hell and Kezef! \o/

bending_sickle: (Now time for the weather)
I watched the pilot of The Walking Dead, whose poster I'd been seeing everywhere on the metro and thought was a zombie movie but is instead a zombie tv show which means zombies every week which is FTW. I liked it so far - it helps that the lead a) wears a sheriff uniform, b) was the "to me, you are perfect" character from Love, Actually and c) has an adorable accent of adorableness. I also like that it's quiet - some shots just go on and on showing you the world and you can't hear a thing. One thing I loved? Spoilers )

I've also got a meeting or interview tomorrow with Person from Organization (not to be confused with Person from the same Organization) about possibly doing something with them in something related to the environment. This is all I know about the interview - which I learnt about today - because this is more of a meet-and-greet, "hey, I know that person who knows you" thing thank anything. I should be squeeful or fearful but I'm feeling a bit like Sam at the moment, in that I'm not feeling very much at all.


Nanowrimo: Feeling rather burnt out from writing, feeling like nothing's happening despite a lot of things happening, and that I'm just fudging it. Chip even had a panic attack which did nothing to advance the plot, and the Agatha showed off some mad skillz, yo, which at most will be a detail. But I think what's up next is a quick night patrol, a snuggle, then zoom zoom skip to the next evening.

Things That Make Sickle Happy:

- [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who being a complete and absolute darling and sending me the audio for The End's commentary. ♥

- [livejournal.com profile] pinkfinity sent me an LJ gift as a token of appreciation for my Devour review. I'm still a-glee over it :D

- I've taken to watching Never Mind the Buzzcocks on YouTube because laughter is flippin' addictive. I particularly enjoyed 21x07 because it had Martin Freeman (ye future Hobbit) and Matthew Horne of The Catherine Tate Show. Part 2 has them staring off each other in a sigh-contest. A favorite is also 21x01 because of Jessica Hynes.

- The joyful comments on the Devour commentary ♥

- Setting a Nanowrimo calendar as my desktop. Well, this doesn't so much make me happy as super excited and somewhat terrified. Yays?


In other news, my parents should've landed by now, so they'll be home in a couple of hours. I'm zooming off to Spain tomorrow afternoon - back Wednesday night - so there's that. Oh, and I might get to snuggle [livejournal.com profile] seschat in person, which would be fantastic.

I haven't worked on that fic I've got half-written at all, but I did make a fanmix. I particularly think that Through Glass is Sam's theme song for Season 6.

bending_sickle: (Do not start with me)
There are some things about DVD bundles that make me wish I had a) money to burn and b) access to ways I could burn that money to get shiny things. Some episodes in Supernatural, for example, make me yearn for a chance to listen to commentaries.

Unfortunately, apart from [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who's detailed flailings, I haven't been able to find anything on Kripke, Singer and Edlund's The End commentary. I've googled and tag-haunted until my fingers fell off, and nothing. I'm this close to contacting [livejournal.com profile] stir_of_echoes, who was fantastic enough to transcribe the commentary for What is and What Should Never Be but I'm scared of coming off as crazy or demanding or whatnot. So can anyone offer any help on that?

You know what else is bothering me by being all "na na!" non-attainable? (No, it isn't any of the boys of Supernatural, because there has to be at least the illusion of attainability for there to be cause for the "na na!" dance.) It's this podbook and its MP3. I've downloaded both of them, but I can't get them to open. Winzip keeps saying "cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive" and WinRAR says "the archive is either in unknown format or damaged". Now, I've downloaded both files a number of times, so I know they're getting in alright, so I don't know. Is this happening to anyone else? I'd just like to check before I go all "waaah, I cannae get podbook!" to the audiofic archive.

...I'm wondering whether there's any community where I could pimp out my Devour picspam review. Just because it took so much time to put together... Must investigate further.

* Naixoa's The Doctor's Message: Twenty Three Too Tah
bending_sickle: (Dean lays salt)
Sickle's "I can't be bothered to be coherent, have some bullet points instead" entry:

  • I totally had a freakout this morning about getting out of the house or finding something to wear or being on time or something. It wasn't pretty, but it wasn't cripling either. Just a lot of rapid breathing and self-coaxing and mild panic.

  • The cold that's been ravaging my parents this weekend has finally struck me down. My throat's got gnomes scratching their nails down it and my head's hot and squishy.

  • I watched Finding Home yesterday on YouTube because it had Misha. His long blonde hair phase reminded me too much of Karla to be comfortable at first and truly appreciate the view. I liked his character, although like most characters in that movie there wasn't much "character" to go around. I loved how soft-spoken he was, though. (Is there any incarnation of Misha's voice that I do not like? I think not.) The movie itself was decent enough, although you could tell from the story - how it was set up and how certain motifs were played out and repeated - that it was based on a story. Sometimes I felt like smacking the characters, though, and I found the sexual assualt scene incredibly upsetting for some reason, although it wasn't graphic. (I mean, it focused on the "woman fights man off desperately" rather than the "woman stripped and abused" aspect, and it never got too far anyway. I just found it so horrible.)

  • I'm somewhat bored. Although I have quite a bit of things to do, I can't seem to do them. I seem to suck at giving my days structure. I was going to write tonight, but the squishy-headedness and all isn't helping, so I think I'll rewatch Devour and snark at it in written form, which is something I've been meaning to do for a while.

  • I had my first sip of tequila tonight. It really was just a sip. It wasn't anything fantastic, and it burnt a bit, but dad had been going on about how it was the best tequila he'd ever had so I thought, "Hey, I've never tried it, so why not try a good version for the first time?"

bending_sickle: (Dean lays salt)
I wrote Supernatural fic. The idea hit me like a rabid plot bunny - so rabid, in fact, it lacked plot and drooled ample amounts of angst and introspection. I wrote it over the past week of tourism in two exhausted binges. I have a Supernatural/True Blood fic halfway done, but this one just wouldn't get out of the way. Do y'all realize that this is the first fic I've written since Stonehenge Antomony back in August?

Now I just need to calculate the distances the furballs covered, do some graphs, bang my head against Access some more for new maps and then mellow out in the glory of a job well done. For about two seconds, after which I edit, prepare the databases and work on the presentation.

I called Ma today (missed call from last night) and it was Not Good but then it was Okay. I'd say more but it's already 2 am and I'm a fucking moron for staying up this late. Maybe tomorrow, when I need to vent.

Also, it's very, very windy and the universe picks right the fuck now for something in the neighbour's balcony to start pouding away loudly. Argh. I want to sleep without random annoying noises! Woe.

Quote of the Day: Douglas Coupland, Eleanor Rigby, here
The thing about meat with me, though, is how it speaks to me about the human body. All of us are stuck inside our meaty bodies. I've always imagined that regular people are happy to be inside their bodies, whereas lonely people yearn to ditch their carcasses. I suspect lonely people wish they could forget the whole meat-and-bone issue altogether. We're the people most likely to believe in reincarnation simply because we can't believe we were shackled into our meat in the first place. Lonely people want to be dead, yet we're still not quite ready to go - we don't want to miss the action; we want to see who wins next year's Academy Awards. More to the point, the lonely, like all humans, yearn to meet that somebody who'll make us feel better about being trapped inside our species' meat-and-bone soul containment system. Oh God, I sound like a prison warden.

I set my alarm for 6:30 (I did fall asleep at 10, after all) but alas, it was not meant to be. I was woken up at 3:30 am by excruciating pain in my right knee. Thankfully, I'd stuck some water inna box into the freezer, so I lay in bed with an ice block wrapped in plastic bags for a while, two advils running around uselessly in my bloodstream, for an hour or so. This morning, biking to work was just short of torture, and right now, sitting at the desk, my knee's throbbing in pain.

I made a doctor's appointment as soon as I bought credit this morning, having fantasized about it last night as a lump of ice melted on my knee. Something has to be wrong with the old articulation. It's been in pain for a week now, no matter what I do. Just lying prone is painful. Appointment's in 1.5 hours, so, yay.

Today was weird. I woke up around 11, which was glorious, and internetted from my bed, which was heavenly, although eventually the lack of dinner and breakfast at by then the incredibly late hour of 2 pm was working me over. So I made it out of the house and took the 4 pm train to the Hague.

I'd been fantasizing about Argentinus, an Argentinian restaurant specializing in big-ass hunks of meat. Sadly, by the time I was in the neighbourhood I was famished and it was, I decided, probably too late to a) see if they were still seving lunch and b) I would have starved to death by the time I was served. So it was Subways.

I continued my Hague movie weekend tradition (broken by last week's Stay in Bedroom All Weekend tradition) and watched The Reader. I was holding back the most powerful sobs all throughout the movie. Ye gods! but that was one sad film.

And then, on a whim, I walked to my old house, which is some 4 km from the center and took me an hour. Then I walked back to the center, scoffing at my taking the train at the closer HS station, because I'm just that stubborn. (I did, however, buy some wok take-away, because, hello, starving.) My knees, which had been aching ever since I'd started running and had been quietly killing me all week, were about ready to jump out and stab me in the neck if I didn't give them a break. They really, really hurt now. Like, oh gods, don't make me walk. Or bend my legs.

Throughout my stupid, pointless and rather nostalgic stroll, I was hit on by at least three men. Read more... )

I've been rewatching childhood classics recently on YouTube, too. Things like the Care Bears Movie 2 and the My Little Pony Special. It's awesome how things I don't remember at all are suddenly so very familiar once again. Oh, and I always found Dark Heart damn fine. ;) (Although no one compares to Disney's Robin Hood. I had such a crush on him as a kid... I would convert to furry-ism for that one.)

And now I'm all aching knees and unshed tears. It's 1:30 am but I'm not sleepy, so I'm off to watch the only movie I ever found Benicio del Toro hot in. (Which is Excess Baggage, Part 1 here.) I'd like him well enough now if only he'd catch up on that decade of sleep it seems he's missing.


Quote of the Day: [livejournal.com profile] ursulav, here
I examined this situation from all angles and came up with "So basically, the take-away is that I shouldn't have waved back."

"No, that probably just encouraged him."

I slumped down on the bed. "The problem is that I've never figured out the point where being friendly stops and encouraging them begins. As far as I can tell, if I don't run you over with a car, I'm encouraging you."

Kevin considered this analysis and failed to refute it. "Well..."
