Not sure how many MASH friends I have left hanging around, but just wanted to give you all a heads up that William Christopher, Father Mulcahy, died December 31st :(

Wow, I didn't know importing was so easy! I guess things went off without a hitch.

Not been very chatty on LJ, so I probably won't be very chatty here (on DW), but who knows? :)

Feel free to add me in either place. Same username on both.

I hate hate hate, that I can only go back about 3 weeks on my flist, even with skipping the communities. Is there any way to view more? I haven't been on in a month and I am missing posts :(

I participated in NaNoWriMo once again. And this time I won :D First time in quite awhile I had nothing going on and I had some good write ins where we spent like 2-3 hours in near silence just writing. It was awesome. And, I made the paper:

My novel is about two bull riders who fall in love.

I saw an awesome movie a few nights ago. It is called Hell or High Water. It stars Chris Pine and Jeff Bridges. Those two are awesome. It reminds me a bit of True Detective, in that the setting is almost like a character, and that you start to cheer a bit for the bad guys. The dialogue is fantastic and lots of fun.

Doing NaNoWriMo this year, and for once in what feels like a long time, I had no vacations or anything else to mess with my momentum. It is about two bull riders who eventually fall in love. Juuuust starting to get to the good stuff....

....Then the election went down and my word count is slipping. So hard to concentrate. I have a small handful of celebrities that I follow on Youtube and Facebook. This whole shitstorm has reminded me why I loved them in the first place. They all started out begging people to do the right thing with voting. Then the shocked disbelief when our nightmares came true. They lashed out. And then finally they apologized and and are ready to forgive and move on.

I don't know the general feelings of my flist, since I haven't been on here in a week or so. I do think we need anger, but put that anger to a good use. Don't attack people. I don't want US to become like THEM.

Enough political shit for now, moving on....

Wednesday I saw Dr. Strange, and Thursday I saw Hacksaw Ridge. I originally wanted to see them back to back, but I couldn't get the time off work Wednesday to do both. There will be some spoilers in my reviews, but not a ton.

Maybe I am slow to the party. But I just learned that I can type any actors name into Google, followed by the words Bacon Number, and it will tell me how many steps that actor is away from Kevin Bacon.

I just lost an hour of my life trying to find someone past 3 steps lol. I failed.

Blake came to the Southwest Washington Fair on Friday. I picked that day as my fair day :) Unfortunately, it was almost 100 degrees that day. Ick!

I went with my brother, who was visiting for the month from Japan, with his wife, and their 3-year old, Kenji.

I bought an Elephant Ear to share around. After Jeff ate half of it, he decided to buy one of his own. Not that I could have finished my own, though. Too much sugar!

Then we went on a few kid rides. Kenji was finally tall enough to go on some rides, and he seemed to enjoy them :D

Only had time for a few, so I could get to the concert on time. I bought a bloomin' onion on the way - I swear, I go to the fair mainly to eat lol.

There was a little section waaay in the back that had some shade, so I settled in there and chowed down. Blake was a bit late to start, which gave me time to finish my food without getting grease prints all over my camera.

The sound was great and he played some songs from his first album that I loved. I recorded a little with my camera, but I couldn't zoom all the way in because I had a hard time keeping the focus on him...every small twitch make the picture dance, even my heartbeat lol.

It cooled off a little and I was able to brave the sun to stand closer, just in time for him to do his cover She Will Be Loved/With or With out you. He didn't sound near as good as he did on tour when he did that song a lot, but I loved seeing the him build the song with his loop pedals. For those not familiar, he is a one person band. Just him and a guitar, and loop pedals where he can make different sounds to 'build' the background music for the song. He is also an awesome beat boxer.

So after that song, I was pretty much done. Hot, sweaty, headache, etc. Wish I could have lasted for more of the concert, but at that moment, I wanted a cold shower more lol.

I managed to buy a bag of cotton candy on my way out :)

Well...it's been a bit since I have posted *cough*

I always think of LJ as the place to squee about fandom and everything else is just a bonus. But I have been so out of the loop as far as fannish things go that I really don't know what to do with myself here. So I guess I will just bullet point things and do a ramble!post.

*I got a final Jeopardy question/answer right. The clue was something like: "A famous author wrote about this narrator having an old war injury in the shoulder. xxx years later, in another book the injury was in his leg." Two of the contestants guessed Sherlock, while the other, correctly, guessed Watson :)

* Been introducing my Aunt to the Marvel Universe. I showed her Iron Man a month ago - she has a huge crush on RDJ and made me change the wallpaper on her computer to a picture of him as Iron Man hahaha. And I just showed her Captain America today. Next up will be Thor, Iron Man 2, then Avengers. Think I will skip Hulk, since it didn't add much. I loved Norton as Hulk, but now I have gotten so used to Mark Ruffalo that I just can't go back to it.

* My brother and his family is coming up July 29th from Japan. They will stay a month. Their kid is 3, but is a bit delayed due to early health issues. He gets frustrated easily because he has yet to start talking and just recently learned to walk. I am not a kid person at all.

* My cat, Ki, is in bad shape. She is 17 and having issues walking. I hope it is just the colder weather effecting her joints. But she has been throwing up every day almost - mainly cat food. She doesn't chew her food, so I think she just eats too fast a lot of the time. She also started peeing outside of the box, so we got her a lower one that she thankfully now uses. But she has pooped a few times in the other room. And to complicate things, our annoying little house dog always is trying to jump on her. Ki can normally hold her own when she feels good, but when she is just trying to slink away, I don't want a dog jumping at her.

* On a funny note, the dog can be sound asleep with me calling her name and totally ignoring me. But I can say 'Hi Ki' in a normal tone and the dog jumps up and looks all over the place for the cat. She falls for this all the time.

* I have to go to the dentist three times to get two crowns and a filling done. An expensive lesson to not wait two years between dentist visits.

* This is the most I have written on anything in a long time. I miss writing. But I also like playing on my iPad lol. I have been gathering ideas for NaNoWriMo, but I am so rusty that I don't expect it to go well.

* I just had the best month ever in June on my Etsy shop. *dances* Already made more than all of last year. http://beaderville.etsy.com

* Just started watching Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. The kid is freaking amazing. He hasn't really done much, but he is an actor to watch out for. He reminds me a bit of Elijah Wood

* Speaking of movies, I saw Free State of Jones last week. I really loved it! It it best as a Matthew Mcconaughey movie. So if you really like him, ignore all the bad reviews and go see it! MM doesn't disappoint.

Is anyone else having issues with comments not showing up in other people's posts? I can see mine just fine and a few others, but if I go to a flocked post, the comments won't show.

*sigh* Probably just means I need to restart my computer :-/

Thank you Youtube!

Hope everyone is having a good 2016 :D

Isn't it funny how one thing leads to another leads to another and leads to something awesome?

So, I am too lazy to change the TV channel (mainly because I am on my iPad and not really watching the TV anyway) and Anger Management was on. Never watched it before because Charlie Sheen bugs me. But I noticed Michael Arden. I didn't know he was on the show. Took me a moment to recognize him.

Huge fan of his from Bare: a Pop Opera (off Broadway musical) and I see him show up from time to time in things. I checked out his IMDB page, then read some comments. Found a thread on Bare and a discussion about how to 'obtain' copies. Then a reminder of the special 2 disc 1 DVD album that was put together. Sadly not with the original cast. I went to the homepage for the album, even though I already own it, just to see if it was still around. The vids that I watched over and over again weren't working, so I went to Youtube for nostalgia sake and looked then up. Watched a bunch.... and found something awesome XD

I just got back from seeing this movie and I really enjoyed it! Way different than I thought it would be and I had my expectations way low because of all the crappy reviews.

If you are a fan of the cast and the trailer made you squee, definitely try to see it while it is still in the theaters. Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, and Andrew Scott are among my favorite actors and they were amazing here. Louise Brealey (Molly from Sherlock) made a brief appearance as well as Mark Gatiss.

There were only three other people in the theater with me (I did go at 4:00 on a Monday), which kept my giggle attack in check. No, the movie wasn't all that funny, but I had some nervous energy happening toward the middle lol.

I seem to be lurking a lot these days, though I do try to keep up on reading my flist, at least :)

I've written 5000+ words on an Adam/Blake fic. It kinda sucks, but it feels good to be writing again!

Nothing too exciting going on here. Same, same. More TV DVRing than I know what to do with....11 hours recorded on Tuesday ack!

I saw The Martian last week. Very good! Definitely going to buy it when it comes out. Next, I want to see The Walk. Looks amazing :)

So awhile back, I got this cheap imitation of a FitBit...it only cost 12 bucks...so yeah, doesn't really work. It can count steps and kinda monitor sleep (it rounds to the nearest half hour and I could jump around and it still counts it as sleeping). BUT, since I started wearing it at night, I have remembered all my dreams! The one night I didn't wear it, I didn't remember a thing.

Odd, but that totally makes it worth the money for me :D

So I had an Avengers dream last night. Kinda. It was pre-Iron Man. Me and another girl were messengers in this underground stone cavern. Thousands of people lived down there and it was a really rough 'neighborhood'. Tony Stark was undercover (for lack of a better word) and he was rooming with this young curly haired man called Jarvis.

We delivered letters and government stuff a lot to them. One time we were found out and the package we were delivering was almost taken. Lots of running and hiding and taking oddly placed elevators. Sometime later, Jarvis had been killed. Tony's face when we made the next delivery was heartbreaking :(

I woke up shortly after that. In the dream, my character didn't think there was a relationship going on - too much almost dying to have time to analyze my clients, but when I woke up - wow.

I don't read Tony fic. I might have skimmed a summary a month ago or so about Jarvis being Tony's secret lover, but I want to ship this! Might have to ask on avengers_request if I can't shake this.
