Okay, there's this thing and even though it says "click through for the zip" I seem to have gone blind because I can't see any through to click and thus no zip and then my face goes all :( Help?

While we're on the "Sickle's useless at figuring out not-really-so-complicated things on Tumblr", how to I put in a user icon? I don't even know what the things are called on Tumblr... Oh, I feel so internet-illiterate.

In other news, not much is going on and there's too much stuff on the internet.

Sickle's Summary of Random Things:
  • I'm still on my Bufy the Vampire Slayer rewatch kick and keep discovering things. Like I was watching I Robot, You Jane (1x08, IMDB) and who should I see, all wee and mullet-less, but Chad Lindberg! By which I mean, Supernatural's Ash! And he's still a computer geek genius! \o/

  • I'm slowly getting the hang of socializing-through-coffee. Last week I had coffee with my supervisor's peer - the hierarchy details, they fail me - which was nice, and today I had coffee with someone I'd sent my CV a while back and we talked about other organizations that might be interesting, which was also nice.

  • Socializing-through-lunch seems to be a big thing, too. Last week I was pretty awesome at having lunch with people, and it's how I met a guy who thinks techno is the highest form of music ever made by man, which, okay, and how I learned that the cute I like talking to is nineteen which, um, ah. *backs away slowly*

  • I also had lunch with my supervisor, which was less of a socializing thing and more of an info-dump accompanied with my panicked internal monologue going, "I have no idea what you're talking about. You want me to do what? Do you want me to do that? Wait, what, that too? But the other thing, that is being done by someone else? But I'm going to do- WHAT IS GOING ON?!?" so that was intimidating.

So again, not dead. Also, curiously enough, not exhausted. But work doesn't leave me much time for posting and surfing and Links of the Day, which is why sometimes this past week I've looked at the bed and said, "Ah, screw it, let's sleep." (Or rewatch Doctor Who Season 5, and sputter about things we still don't know about River - what did the Bishop in Time of Angels mean? - or about the finale - why 26/06/2010?)

However, I can report back that work is going well. So far it's still a lot of reading - although now they've brought down and hooked up my computer in my new shared office, so yay typing and oncoming productivity! I attended some presentations last week, and had an informal lunch meeting, and have a meeting tomorrow (where I think I'm supposed to introduce myself to the larger team). I've met more people than I could possibly ever remember and they've all been nice. Ah, international environment, how I've missed you! I've walked miles going from one part of the building to the other, getting lost in corridors and on staircases. I swear it's a bloody TARDIS-baby.

Last week I kept getting home absolutely exhausted - all read-out and socialized-out and languaged-out. Also, curisouly, with a raving desire for creativity. I've worked on that Not What I Had In My Head drawing (and worked on it so much it went from decent-enough to shite and back again) and have discovered The Coloured Pencils as well as the Badly Mangled Watercolours from my childhood. I also have charcoal pencils, so at least one version of the drawing is going to be passable. I even took Betsy out for a bit - didn't play her or even tuner her up, but I did wipe the dirt of her poor little guitar body.

In other news, have some links. Lots and lots of links.

Just had the doctor's appointment, certifying that, indeed, I will not drop dead at the office. There was also surprise EVERYTHING (and TMI) )

I've been listening to Thea Gilmore's "Avalanche" on repeat since I got back home. I've got that half-a-bottle of beer from yesterday and some chips. I have Mark Sheppard in some three episodes of Dollhouse to rewatch. (I think I didn't recognize him the first time because his face has freakin' morphed since he was a not-so-wee thing on Firefly.) I think I'll be okay.


In other news (and in a completely different mood), I found that video that everyone's making GIFs of Misha! \o/ Check it out!

So I just watched my Walking Far From Home fanvid and just realized that somehow, a clip-series was doubled. Like, there is a whole verse that's been doubled. This will have to be rectified. I just... *facepalm* And no one's said anything? I'm going to go hide under a rock in shame now.

I'm a bit better today, but the past few days have been pretty shitty in the emotional department, all Social Isolation Monkey and Random Crying and Anxiety and Extreme Boredom. Seriously, I've been going crazy.

I've been sunbathing, watching Firefly, and editing old unfinished stories for the anthology I'm working on for my ex-supervisor. Not much else happening apart from the, y'know, mental meltdown.

Oh, and I've petted some cats. That was nice.

  • I've done a re-re-re-edit of TWSaM because my supervisor has been kind enough to give me the go-ahead on printing it out at the office and binding it all nice and spirally. \o/ Sure, when my parents get back they'll have my CreateSpace proof copy, but this one's got pictures.

  • I've been doing a lot of listening to audiobooks lately - the house is very quiet. This weekend I got How to be a Pirate by CCressida and Whiteout by KFollet done, and soon I'll be able to start on the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel. Booooooks \o/

  • I'm being quite crap at emailing people I ought to email.

  • We can has gas bill. I need to figure out where that can be paid, and all that jazz. I know it involves a lot of standing in line and such, but the details are fuzzy.

  • By gods, if I don't finish Walking Far From Home (fanvid) this week, cries of argh! will ensue.

  • Although, creatively, this weekend was a win because while I still have two stories crying abandoned in a corner, I got the outlines down for one image I've been wanting to draw. Sure, the angle isn't what I wanted, but it's the best I can do without the appropriate references. Of course, I can't draw people to save my life, and my adding colour to things tends to ruin them, so I don't know how I'm going to get the vibrant colour motif I've got in my head down on paper... But at least we're exorcising the damn thing out.

Thoughts on Castiel's Season Arc:

I've been scared for Castiel and his season arc for a while now, terrified that they're going to make him the villain, or have him do unforgivable things in the eyes of the Winchesters and the audience. Whilst editing a fanvid, I caught a chilling visual parallel: Hammer of the Gods vs Frontierland )

I am now terrified. People have been theorizing that Castiel is this season's Lucifer, and now it's all I can see coming.

* Mark Sheppard, re: Adam Baldwin and Nathan Fillion
bending_sickle: (Invisible?)
I went running today instead of to the movies with mom today, because she's been having tachycardia since last this morning, and that not even two weeks since the last time she had it. So, not good.

Not much other news, apart from ye gods am I getting tired of writing up Links of the Day - mainly because I don't have time to even check the links out myself for more than a skim. Yeah, y'all think I read all the fics I list? No, alas, there's not enough time for that. In terms of fic, the LotD is more my wish list than my done list. (And trust me, those lists are real. Not just that, but I've got a document saved, called "Fics to Read". So I mean it when I say I want to read these things.) It makes me sad that I can't read all the fics I list. But then, there's a reason it's the links of the day and not the recommendations of the day. It's just a daily bookmark.

It's just that with pingback I've been getting the occasional "wee! thanks for reccing me!" which, well, okay, it's sort of what I've done, you're welcome, I'm just spreading the word, but then sometimes it's with the added "I hope you liked it" or similar and then I get all guilty if I haven't read the fic. So yeah.

Basically, the LotD is me closing tabs of things I would really like to have the time to delve into deeper, or tabs of things I thought were cool, or interesting, or that other people might be interested in, or whatever. The small text is a sure sign, though.

And now you know. And hopefully I can stop feeling guilty about it.


Meme: 30-Day Fandom vs. Personal Meme:

Day 29: One of your favourite pastimes, and which character do you think would enjoy it the most?

Currently it's editing a video, so I guess Misfits's Simon would like it, seeing as he does it himself.

Day 30: You get to either have the powers of any character from a fandom, have their looks, or have them be a real person and become your lover. Which/who do you choose?

Oh, like picking which option of these should be a contest? Would you rather do awesome stuff, be pretty, or have a good lay? Hmmm... *le sarcasm*

So, powers. Obviously. And, just as obviously, True Blood's Sam's shapeshifting abilities. Because it's only been my wish to have that power since like, the womb.

Sickle's Review of Repo! The Genetic Opera:
  • It is awesome. (Trailer) I remember the crazy mad hype on [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets months before the movie came out, and believe be, the hype is totally founded. (Unless cracky science fiction dramatic slasher opera isn't really your thing - like my brother - then you might not like it.) It's rocking fun, the story is good (and easy to follow in that characters are well-introduced and get back-stories) and the songs are brilliant

  • Speaking of, Zydrate Anatomy is still the best song there, although I Didn't Know I'd Love You So Much is rapidly becoming my also-favorite.

  • And speaking of Zydrate Anatomy, can I just say? Graverobber is made of unf.

  • Anthony Stewart Head was spectacular. His singing - and yes, he does have an album out - his acting, everything. Oh man, I've missed seeing him. (This is why I need to watch Merlin, I know.) I didn't even have to choose between hopeing for him being Giles-like or him being Ripper-like. (And, um, Sexy Evil Voice is Sexy.)

  • And again, speaking of Anthony Head, I didn't know his brother was Murray Head, of One Night in Bangkok. That is... Wow. That's a classic, that is.


Sickle Wields the Science Stick: On icanhascheezburger, someone posts a video: Fennec Fox Demands Love. Cue the "OMGWTF that's a wild animal, why is it captivity!" voices and the "it's totally domesticated, no worries mate, have some fallacies" maddness, and I back away slowly to shake my head (and Science Stick!) far from the drama. My references are all going to be Wiki because I have neither the time nor patience to pull up relevant journals and I am not doing a literature review to shake the Science Stick over the concepts of domestication, tameness, and similar. Deal with it. This shit got long enough as it is.Read more... )

Day 19: I went for a walk, had ice-cream (coffee flavour of the gods and ricotta & blue berries of those other gods), and checked out the new Little Big Town toy store. Grabby hands were made at many things, because I am twelve. Or six, depending on the toy. (I *insert sarcasm* love how their gallery is really just headshot of Important People in the shop, as opposed to, oh, I don't know, their products?)
Day 20: ...I'm going to watch Castle The Secret Diary of a Call Girl tonight even if my alarm clock kills me tomorrow. Yays. Granted, it's officially Day 21 now (Approprite Icon is Appropriate), so Day 20 had... Rasberries with cream. Yes. That was the highlight.

* Repo! The Genetic Opera
bending_sickle: (Angst!)
Today, I went out for a walk in the afternoon in the hopes of "raising my spirits" and "clearing my head" and all that other stuff walks are supposed to do, and instead got rained on for the most part, stood under a tiny overhang from a shop while two couples at two different points started arguing bitterly and loudly and that's why I wanted out of the house, universe! and waited for a bus which would not come because it doesn't run Sundays, until I took another one which took me sort of home. Remind me never to take an evening constitutional ever again.


Dad's got Dupuytren's contracture (or, more awesomely, "Viking disease"), which is where "the tough connective tissue within one's hand becomes abnormally thick which can cause the fingers to curl and can result in impaired function of the fingers, especially the small and ring fingers." He's looking into treatment and surgery options.

Now, there's no real known cause for this disease, although there's a lot of finger pointing, particularly at "trauma, diabetes, alcoholism, epilepsy therapy with phenytoin and liver disease." But the interesting thing is that 60-70% of those afflicted have a genetic predisposition to D's c. You know what this means, right? I am totally losing at the Genetic Roulette here. Where my genetics might hurt me. )
