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... )

During the brief moments when I haven't been working or lying in bed cursing a cold, I've been watching television. Have some comments on that, because apart from writing some Time drabbles (and there's some Chip/Icarus there for you, [livejournal.com profile] seschat), I've got nothing new.

It's been ages since I last wrote a proper post. Weeks, even. Hoenstly, there's not been all that much going on, and what has is either work-related or stuff I'd rather not remember. Read more... )

I read this post by Tumblr's crowleyismyco-pilot (who is awesome) on the why behind her love and adoration for all things Mark Sheppard (except possibly it wasn't this post but one like it or maybe I just can't remmeber things anymore), and has finally pushed me into writing about something I've been meaning to write about for a while. (Except, of course, I realize now that I've already written about it all here). Read more... )

In other, fannish, news:
- Ringer wins all the things, including my heart.
- Torchwood: Miracle Day was an excercise of meh-ness concluding in one final burst of "oh no you di'n't" (with a little bit of "Care Bear Stare saves the day, again" facepalming).
- Doctor Who's "The Girl Who Waited" broke my heart into a million little pieces.
- I'll be missing Supernatural's 7x01 next week, which means that a) I get to wait two more weeks until Ye Great Emotional Car Crash, b) I'll get to watch 7x01 and 7x02 back-to-back, and c) I'll be gone when the internet implodes. None of this is actually good.

We're talking hellfire-and-brimstone Old Testament shit. Today, I am the nastiest pirate ship that ever plowed the Seven, and we're out for blood, and there will be rape and pillaging and cities will burn, just because.

bending_sickle: (Mark is made of awesome)
I'm still in my "watch all the Mark Sheppard things!" mode. I've followed Mark into some amazing new shows - Leverage and White Collar and Battlestar Galactica - and into some watchable ones - Warehouse 13 and Chuck, for example. Then there's Bionic Woman and Middle Man, which I plowed through out of sheer devotion to Mark's minor character. Oh, Mark...



Right now, I'm watching 24 and I almost wish I were watching Middle Man. At least that one was amusing. For one, it doesn't help that this is totally not my style of show. There's no fantasy and no science, so that's me clutching at staws to find something I can invest in. I'm shit out of luck doing that with Mark's character because the first episode he's in, he's hunkered down in a crowd, head in his hands. The second one, he's got tiny scenes of sitting in a car. (Sitting well and lovely, but still.) Right now I'm hanging onto Grey's Anatomy's Teddy and The Lord of the Rings Sam to get me through. That and the awesome character Chloe O'Brian.

But I can handle that, no problem. What I cannot handle is how the male characters are responding to and treating two female characters. Read more... )

In other news, I've watched all of the guest-starring-Mark-Sheppard episodes of BSG and am still a bit on the fence over whether I like the show or not. I can see that it's good, but it hasn't quite gripped me. Still, I've been reading Television Without Pity's recaps of the episodes I watched, and apart from being astonishingly well-written in the analytical and poetic sense of it all, they make me want to watch the show in full, if only to get a sense of these vast sweeping themes. So BSG is still on the List of TV Shows to Watch.

However, that's not what I want to share today. What I want to share is reason 2349 why Romo Lampkin is awesome.


He's handcuffed and has a big bad soldier with an even bigger, badder gun aimed at his *squints eyes* well, ass, really. And you know what? He kills that solder dead. With a pen. A stolen pen.

Did I mention he's a lawyer?

* Battlestar Galactica
bending_sickle: (Mark is made of awesome)
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*

...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.

bending_sickle: (But I won't like it)
I'm currently watching Leverage (or rather, Mark Sheppard's episodes of) and the fandoms are bleeding together again. For one, Mark, who's in everything, so that's expected. Well, his suprise Mandarin wasn't, and oh it made me so happy to hear him speak in Mandarin. (Oh, Badger!). Then there's Angel's Lindsay (whose long hair has to go) and Supernatural's Jake (my favourite, by far). Speaking of Lindsay and Jake (and no, I don't know their Leverage names), they're my bro-OTP for the show. Seriously, they're like Ryan and Esposito! D'aw!

Alright, so I was going to flail about Misha's stint on Ghostfacers which was hilarious and unfilicious but my flailing is now of a different kind because all the links are gone. GIF reaction )

In other news, this fanart crossover of mine has 177 notes. *flails* Ahem. *more flailing* See, I love this about Tumblr. I don't need to pimp out my stuff - just tag it - and people like and reblog, whereas on Livejournal I'd have to pimp out on a number of communities - feeling like I'm spamming everywhere - and gods only know when the last time I got a pingback was... So yays Tumblr!

That long post I keep meaning to write, with the photographs, the drabble for that meme, and those fanart things, and all that other stuff? Yeah, not this one. Not enough time in the day, and I needs mah sleep. Stupid impending Monday...

I will say, though, that after [livejournal.com profile] seschat and my's nitpicking of the latest X Men for its feminism fail, I've been looking into a few things, as you'll see from the links. Also? The following wording is making me go GRR ARGH. Improve my ass. What does gender have to do with the Sorting Hat?!

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.

Because this is how I grow up. Because this is how I develop. Because I am the sort of person who has more followers than friends. Because I genuinely enjoy sitting in my room for days and doing nothing but watching movies and listening to music and reading. Because isolation has been my best friend since I was about five. Because I look out my window at the sun and I hear the birds singing and I just shut the god damned curtains. Because... Because... Because this is who I am and this is how I’m living.

Because I’ve always known I’d die alone.
