Quote of the Day: Wikipedia, "Loneliness", here
A person who feels lonely regardless of if she is at a family gathering, with friends, or alone is experiencing chronic loneliness. It does not matter what goes on in the surrounding environment, the experience of loneliness is always there.

Sickle's Random Points:
  • Yesterday I saw the most hilarious sight. I almost wished I'd had my camera, but then I doubt I would've been allowed to take one, or would've had the guts to do so. On my way to and from work, I pass by a mysterious corner with a permanent jeep and two soldiers in camouflage with bullet-proof vests and rifles. They're always there and they won't say why. Yesterday, waiting to cross the street at that very corner, was a pudgy man with black glasses and a camouflage shir. Oh, the ironic contrast!

  • I've watched more guest-starring-Mark-Sheppard Battlestar Galactica episodes and okay, I'll admit I like the show. Not all the time, but I really like Lee Adama and Patchy - sorry, Saul Tigh - as well as Cylon Six and Gaius. I particularly enjoyed the courtroom episodes that ended season 3.

  • That last may have something to do with the fact that I love it when Mark Sheppard's characters shout. So far as I can remember, they all have, and man, he roars and it's adorable. And awesome. He'll hunker down and his face'll just do a perfect angry-O-with-scrunchy-eyebrows. Oh, the squee.

  • But most of all I love Romo Lampkin. This is not just because of who his face is. The writing, the character's history and psychology, I just... The tiny little detail about him taking care of his ex-wife's cat, which he claims he hates but loses his shit over when it dies, and the story of how he lost his wife, whom just a few episodes before he'd given this whole gorgeous speech about how much he hurt without her... I love this character and all his lying, theiving flaws. He's a person.

  • It is hot. It is very hot. It is over 37 degrees hot. It is does-not-go-below-thirty-in-my-room-at-night hot. It is oh-gods-this-headache-is-kililng-me hot. It is I-will-rub-this-wet-rag-over-me-forever hot. *melts*

Sickle's Random Tid-Bits:
  • I finally watched an episode of Battlestar Galactica, which I've been meaning to watch in full for ages. Obviously it was a Mark Sheppard episode - 3x18, "The Son Also Rises" - and he was basically the reason I watched it. And, it turns out, the only reason I liked it.

    Sure, I was jumping smack in the middle of the third season with only a basic knowledge of the whole series' storyline, but I didn't enjoy it because I got lost. And it wasn't because I didn't feel for the characters, because I did, for some, even without knowing their life history. I don't know, I think it was just all the politics and intrigue and all that type of happenings that made me not like it, because I've figured out that that is just not my genre. Thrillers and spies and politics - even if they are in space! - just isn't my thing.

    But that said, it really is a good show. Good pacing, good look, excellent writing. And by that I mean I absolutely adored all of Romo Lampkin [Mark Sheppard]'s speeches. His character had a slight Irish lilt to it, which was charming once I actually figured out what accent it was I was hearing - because previous to that I was just all ears going, "What? What accent is that? Where is that from? Is that, what?"

    I actually had to extract some of his speeches and made them into MP3s (wanna listen?) because I just loved them so much. Mark, damnit, do audiobooks.

    So in sum, I'll be watching more BSG, but only the kind with Mark Sheppard in it, until and if I get hooked on it and want to watch the whole thing.

    Oh, and on a completely different not, the president? Couldn't keep her apart from Doctor Who's Sarah Jane Smith in my head. I'm okay with that.

  • The newspaper did an article on prostitution zones in Rome, and so I learned that there are two zones in my neighbourhood. There's seven women right around our place - which doesn't surprise me, as I knew of five and actually walk by their hang-out place which is a little park every day to and from work - and some twenty-one a bit farther away - coincidently, where one night my mother and I were walking and were called at from a car and we knew they'd mistaken us for prostitutes. So that makes almost thirty prostitutes right in my area. Huh.

  • One of my co-workers, who's camping out at a friend's place until he can find one of his own, got robbed. In his apartment. At night. While he was sleeping. Someone ninjaed in through an open second-story window and took his friend's TV, his iPhone and wallet. Apart from being freaked the fuck out over someone being in his house while he's sleeping, he didn't have a dime on him. He went to his folk's for the weekend, to recover a bit until he could move in to his new place. The worst thing? This is totally not an unheard of or even uncommon thing in Rome.

  • I just realized today that it's going to be ten years since I graduated from highschool and started university, and I've got a friend who's at that stage right now. (The best thing? We're both like, "What age difference?") Ah, squishy ♥ And since it's that season, there's a few Tumblr things about starting university which mean a lot because I can remeber it all happening, and because I'm seeing it happening to my squishy. So this.

...yeah, so I haven't been posting regularly in a while, and that's one part work sucking all my time and energy, one part Tumblr, and one part of "not much going on". Most of my day consists of work, which is currently being mind-numbingly dull, and the rest of it is spent trying not to melt in the unbearable heat. I still post a bit of fanart over on Tumblr, and I've been watching Season 1 of White Collar, which is awesome. It just feels like most of the time I'm desperately trying to keep up with all the things I want to do and just barely keeping my head above water.

Hence the massive LotD below. And the lack of Original Fiction Meme.

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.

So, fandoms are colliding. Case in point:
  • Bones having Angel's Angel and Hamilton together in a scene.

  • Medium having Firefly's Badger and Niska together in a scene.

I just...thought I'd point that out? Because I kinda want to do art about it but not now?

Speaking of Medium, I watched the third episode with Mark Sheppard (although really, the first one is a lie, because it has Mark saying two lines and then it's nothing but sitting there staring at the screen, consumed by lust, waiting for his character to show up again and he never does, at least not Mark-shaped). It made me rant at the screen.

So I'm going to rant at the screen again, in typed form. Because GRR ARGH. In which a woman is in labour and I do not agree with solution - and sentiments. )

On a completely unrelated note, I just learned that Jay Chou's in The Green Hornet. Congratulations, film, you now have one reason I'd be interested in watching you. X-Men, which I really want to watch, is still available only in the dubbed "ye gods no" version.

Also, I've been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer again. Oh, show ♥ By some strange happenstance, I happened to watch Tara's introductory episode ("Hush") and her centric "finally really part of the scooby gang" episode ("Family"). Now I'm going to watch "Welcome to the Hellmouth", where it all started. Ah, my youth!

In other news, this weekend I'm most looking forward to seeing more of Canton on Doctor Who, which explains why I had a dream in which I asked Mark Sheppard if he was in more than two episodes in Doctor Who. (He said "yes" and I said "Yes!".) Then we saw leopards and cheetahs in the bushes at night before the local Big Man with his machetes came to force the village to play a manual-dexterity game, in which the losers lost a finger - ETA: And by "lost" I mean "had chopped off with a machete" - and then I took over the gang and set things right. My dreams, they are strange.

Interview went alright, except for the fact that it wasn't about an internship but rather a volunteership, which has a nasty clause of your not being able to work for Organization for a period of 6 months after your volunteership, which would result in basically one year having to pass before I have a shot of actually working there for cash, and the volunteership was for the communication's department of a sustainable development project.

Oh, and Supernatural's "The French Mistake" was brilliant and hilarious and had second-hand embarrassment and why didn't I like Misha in it?!? That's as coherent as I can be for now.

Also, why didn't anyone tell me that Misfits was all up in the science fiction and fantasy and people with ~*powers*~ zone? That's my cup of tea!

Also also? Brain won't write, but damn will it come up with images I can't bloody draw.

Holding a small furry animal close to your chest is the closest to being God you will ever get. I love it.

Today a customer casually chatted to me about his boyfriend while we were fixing his broadband fault. Earlier this week another customer mentioned that her girlfriend's computer was connecting fine though her own wasn't.

As a society we still have a lot of improvements to make, but the fact that there are people who feel safe enough mentioning their same sex relationships in conversation with a complete stranger means that there's no doubt about it, there have been improvements since I was a kid. And that's a good, comforting sign, even if those improvements are taking more time than they should <3.

So I'm an indecisive jittery mess. Here's the latest version of Time We Saw a Miracle's blurb:
In an armed camp, Chip and his companions find shelter from the infected and cope with life after the apocalypse. As Icarus struggles with the loss of his angelic grace, Chip discovers there is always something more to fear.

And it is tracking them down.

Your reactions?
a) Kill it with fire!
b) Shiny!
c) What is that last line doing there and how can we make it go away?

My reaction: B followed immediately by C then swinging wildly back to B. Why? My love for The Line will not die, and the blurb is now just three words longer than Time For Something Biblical's and in the same paragraph format. Symmetry is my crack.

Supernatural: Whilst looking for screencaps of what Dean's camp in The End looked like - particularly the gate and fence around it - I came across something which left me flailing. I have no idea how I missed this in my first viewing - and my second, and third, and fourth... Imaaaaage and CAPSLOCK )


Life: In other news, you know what's pretty cool? Having your mother Google until she drops looking for a novel by the name Les juifs and being unable to find it, followed by her telling me about it in the vaguest terms possible ("It was about Jewish traditions! And they got married at the end!") and then me taking not even five minutes to find it for her. I win.


Nanowrimo: I do believe that tomorrow we will properly meet Kezef and seen Dean do something badass. (Useless, but still badass.) I still don't quite know what Kezef wants with Icarus - it has something to do with his purpose and the locking up of Heaven, but I don't know exactly or even how. It's going to involve blood, though, because apparently "Angel of Punishment = Vampire" is teh trufax in my brain.
