We have a raccoon that has been showing up looking for food. Well, now he begs for food on our porch:

I would add a few more pics, but I can't seem to get them to show up right side up here. Anyone know? I saved them right side up in a photo editor, and I also right clicked on the picture and rotated it that way...nothing helped.

Anyone have any ideas?

Battle Creek

I had a steamy Milt/Russ dream the other night. Sadly, I don't have fandom dreams very often, let alone smutty ones lol. The last one I can remember was a Prison Break dream between two characters I never thought about slashing before, haha.

I'm going to really miss Battle Creek. It was my favorite new show :( It ended well, though, I think. I swear they had two different endings in mind depending on if they got picked up for another season.

So many cool and different shows get cancelled before they can find an audience. It is really depressing. My favorite show, Night Shift, barely made it to renewal. I felt like a nervous wreck as I waited for the news.

How did everyone else's shows do?

Trip time!

The massive trip is underway!

Flew from Seattle early early Thursday morning to San Francisco to catch a flight 2 hours later to Atlanta. The flight was delayed for 4 hours because of a cracked handle, the type you use as a grip, on the emergency door. It wasn't noticed until after the safety check and we were all on board. We did get free Direct TV for the flight and a 50 dollar voucher for another flight. I watched Guardians of the Galaxy and Edge of Tomorrow (it finished just as we landed).

Went the the Atlanta Zoo today and the World of Coke Museum. Tomorrow, we are driving to Florida. Wheee!

NaNoWriMo!

Hiya all! Long time no see!

Surrounded by a group of 10 people and we are counting down the last 30 minutes until NaNoWriMo starts, so why not ignore everyone and finally do a (long overdue) LJ post? :D :D

Work-wise, I have survived the most stressful week in 10 years, and things are finally calming down. We are at full staff and my hours are back to normal. I am sad that I am not making as much money, but I love not working on Saturdays any more and that I have more time to write and do other things.

I've still been reading your posts, though I don't comment too much lately.

I am going on a big trip in the middle of the month (which is going to screw with my NaNo writing, as I am only taking along a mini iPad). I am taking the train to Seattle where I will meet with Michelle, then flying to Georgia where a group of us will gather and drive to Florida (Disney and Universal), then the train to New York (Book of Mormon and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade). And a bunch of other stuff in between :)

And now we are watching someone get arrested outside the building.

The Normal Heart

First, for those who hadn't heard of the movie, here's a trailer:



I had been looking forward to this movie for over a year, back when I first heard Matt Bomer would be in it. With all the interviews I had been seeing everywhere for it lately and the hype, I was worried I had my expectations set too high....

...I actually don't have any complaints. Wonderful acting all around. We really got to know the core group of people, so that the blows to the characters hurt all the more.

Okay, my only complaint was that the movie didn't go a little further timeline-wise. I LOVED Ned and Felix, but the movie slowed to a stop cut for spoiler ).

Unfortunately, Mom was also interested in seeing it. That was a mistake lol. She made it to minute 30 before she made me turn it off. Which was a relief! It was so uncomfortable watching with her and I knew the movie would turn me into a sobbing mess. But if she had only watched for 30 more seconds, things calmed down (aka, no more smut scenes lol). But this allowed me to curl up with my cat and sniffle all I wanted while watching.

Hard movie to watch, but get a hold of it if you can!

Sorry I have been AWOL lately. I haven't felt very fannish lately. Not written much in ages, not read much in ages, and that is what I normally do on LJ - roll about in fandom stuff.

It's been almost a year and a half since I have been working extra hours at the library. Yay money, but I am looking forward to getting things back to normal (NEXT MONTH YAY). My hours have been all over the place, and I am not a morning person at all. So by night time, which is normally when I am most productive, I just want to zone out and play some POGO games before bed.

Aside from Sherlock, there aren't many shows I feel like squeeing for while watching. Love Tomorrow People, which got cancelled (booo!). Chicago Fire has been getting really good. The Following was really intense. Still enjoying all my reality shows.

Newest actor I have been all eeee over is Matthew Mcconaughey. Working my way through his IMDB page. Mud was fantastic :)

I just saw the movie. Now, I love disaster movies...


...and this was the best disaster movie ever!

So much wrong, though. So much.

Hee, this is awesome! I was link-hopping around on YT and found...not really sure what/where this is from, but is it a clip of 'Benedict Cumberbatch visiting pianist James Rhodes' and they are gushing about piano music.

As of today, I have been at my library job for 10 years....How did that happen? o.O

I made another vid to the awesome movie, Third Star, staring Benedict Cumberbatch. If you've not seen the film, go check it out! And if you saw it once and didn't like it, see it again ;) It's much better on the second watch lol.

Song: Things You've Never Done by Passenger
Clips: Third Star and Fortysomething

Weird Dreams

I had a dream that Cumberbatch was in a new movie. The 'Scene' I remember pretty well was that he had been testing a drug that gave people irrational fear. To prove this (or maybe the person had just pissed him off), he tossed someone over a cliff. They had a parachute, but he shot a hole in it. The guy screamed a lot, but I think anyone would, drugs or not.

It was very dark and lots of trying to avoid getting arrested.

I remember thinking it was a decent enough movie, but would probably get slammed by critics.

Then I started watching it again, though I doubt it started the same way as the first time. Hardly felt like the same movie.

Was weird and cool and I didn't want to get out of bed :(

American Idol

I finally love this show again!

I think it learned a lesson from The Voice (and the shit storm of last season) that having lovable judges is one of the keys to success.

At my writing group, we have an annual Character Workshop. You show up as a character you are writing about, and then have to try to stay in character the whole time.

For lack of any an original character, I decided to be Sherlock ;) As we were partnering up to get to know each other, Holly, our organizer, slipped me a note that my services were being hired to solve a crime. A spur of the moment thing that I totally wasn't prepared for lol

We got in a group circle and Holly, my partner and also our therapist for 'Group Therapy', started us off. We each had to introduce our partner to everyone else. While people did the Name, Age, profession list, I kinda slammed my partner, calling her a "middle-aged woman whose competitive streak prompted her to cheat her way through college" and "whose career is on a decline and that I wouldn't trust her to give an accurate diagnosis of any of us". Being an ass was a bit of fun :D

Then we took turns answering questions, in character, while I took notes of who could have been capable of murder. I ended up taking notes on everyone, including the person next to me who kept trying to look at my notes.

So by the end, I went around the table, saying how each person had motive or a reason to kill, but dismissed them all. Holly was the last. She kept having to break character during the meeting, so I diagnosed her with multiple personality disorder, and that she asked more questions than she answered, plus she made everyone drink tea for some odd reason. She wasn't even trying to be a suspect lol.

I hate improv and had reservations about being Sherlock, because my brain doesn't work that way, but this was loads of fun. I had a clicky pen and I kept clicking the Morse Code for S.O.S., but not one seemed to notice my distress lol.

Year in Review

Well, this is going to be super short. I actually wrote NO fic in 2013. What? How the hell did that happen?
I did do a little writing, but never finished anything to post.

However, I did start doing some Music Videos:

In Darkness for BBC Sherlock
and
Last Night on Earth for Third Star

I also have two more vids that are pretty much done, but they are on the other laptop and I am not atm lol. I still have a bunch of stuff I need to transfer over from there as well, but I haven't missed it too much except the vidding things.
evila_elf: (Sherlock - Violin3)
It took me this long to process the ep enough to give a review that isn't completely filled with squee (but close lol).

I watched the episode a total of 4 times in a 24 hour period...

I'm not sure how much I have. Pretty sure one of each color. Generic brand, not Brother brand, but I have never had a problem with it.

It is for the MFC series of ink shown here:
http://www.amazon.com/12-Pack-Compatible-Cartridges-Brother-5460CN/dp/B001J2P9MM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388977935&sr=8-1&keywords=brother+mfc+ink

I got a new printer that sadly doesn't take ink that is that cheap *cries* and I want this to find a good home rather than tossing it.

Only need a few bucks to cover shipping.

New Year stuff

Well, so far, having a meh time of the new year.

I have a nasty cold and someone tried to steal nearly 500 dollars from my bank account through my paypal.

However, new Sherlock *Squee*! I will make a separate post on that.

I hardly bother with resolutions, because things normally go okay enough that I don't feel I need major change, but this year, I have two:

1) Get back into writing. NaNo has made me realize how much I miss it and I need to find time for both creative writing as well as my crafts.

2) Lose 10 pounds. 10 pounds can make all the difference. A few years ago, I got real active with exercising a little every day, and only slightly changing my diet (as in, stop overeating). I only weigh 130 now, but it all settles on my thighs. Losing it should be fairly easy once I get back into the habit.

...and I was all prepared to start in on #2, but it is that time of the month, plus I am sick. *sigh* Maybe tomorrow. I have a feeling that is going to end up being my motto.
