posting seems harder and harder between tweets and tumblr and everything else!

hello people! the spiral of xmas socialisation is descending upon me!

biscuit nazi: "A, you have the busiest social life of all the single people I know!"
me: < sarcasm >"Yeah keeping busy is the only way I can distract myself from the gaping hole of loneliness because I am unmarried/have no children"</ sarcasm>*

other things I wanted to tell you guys while I was at work today:
today I read a WIP 1950's teen wolf AU, it is pretty good?

the new neighbour upstairs in number 3! I HATE HER. currently she has her door open and loud tv is echoing through the building. Loud tv is fine! BUT SHUT YOUR FUCKING DOOR.

I am especially angry about this as she is the one with the cat whom she lets ROAM THE BUILDING. BECAUSE SHE PUT CAT LITTER AND A CAT LITTER TRAY IN THE HALL CUPBOARD.

I really want to go upstairs and tell her to shut her door. I also want to leave the door open when she lets her cat roam again, but that would be mean to the cat.

WHO LEAVES THEIR FLAT DOOR OPEN???

i have told her not to let her cat in the hallway, I am allergic! and the carpeted stairs in the building now smell AWFUL and I am sure it is her fault.

I'm giving it 15 min and if the door isn't shut or the tv turned down I will get my bitch on.

survivor season 16: micronesia(fans vs favourites) - most feminist season ever? Female alliance goes to the final 4 and at one point two of the women have a conversation about how one of them should always ask for what she wants because it works in survivor. and in her normal life she doesn't ask for things because she is too afraid to hear no.

<3

my favourite weekends are the ones where I get to rewatch old survivor seasons. usually i will stick to something in the boston rob oeuvre, but survivor ladies who are awesome are awesome.

I have all these feels today. I wish I could figure out what they are. I feel cranky maybe? And tired? I think I had weird dreams so it's messing me up. And I had food confusion this morning which means I had breakfast later than usual. Just had lunch so hopefully will feel more even-keeled this arvo.

I need ultimate comfort fic, I really need to tag my pinboard bookmarks with things I can map to want I want emotionally like 'pickmeup' 'squishy feelings' 'made me lol' 'hearts & flowers' 'feelings *and* porn' etc

To pinboard!!

I saw the bourne legacy this week, and it was okay! apart from using the word science too much and doing things that were not science. Jeremy Renner fought a wolf? IDK it was okay? but mainly it just made me want to watch the original trilogy so I just busted out the dvds(they were still in the plastic) and I have just been asked if I want to 'play the theatrical movie' or 'play the explosive extended edition'

EXPLOSIONS. I WILL ALWAYS PICK EXPLOSIONS

in other news - I want to see Total Recall, I got the trailer for 'Looper' before Bourne and got excited, and there was something else I was going to say.
meelie: (fat lee says: MWHOL MWHOL MWHOL)
Tonight I scrambled an egg for the first time in my life!

I was making a flat noodle thing fake pad thai thing and the recipe was all 'scramble an egg'. SO I DID.

this is exciting as due to childhood raw egg allergy and my mum nearly killing me with her bad cooking flapjacks when I was little, after that my mum (and then later me) wasn't taking any chances and so no eggs for me!
meelie: (dino comics-mad at a fictional character)
As I have said to a couple of people, how did Teen Wolf become my must watch ASAP!!! show? How??

not that important, but spoilery comments )

hello! I need to tell you ALL THE THINGS

* [livejournal.com profile] sinpozium was a couple of weeks ago! it was great!

* my teen wolf pimp at sinpoz went well as did my vid show - I got a compliment on how I collate a vidshow and I really felt pleased by that :)

* great to see all my have kiwis at sinpoz! I shall be returning the favour whenever [livejournal.com profile] get__together happens!

* went to perth to catch up with English KT my english friend who was my bestie in Vancouver! In conclusion, we are still bros, it is awesome that she lives in the same country as me again!

* you should read this fic!: "Whatever" by skoosiepants - It is a WONDERFUL original slash highschool fic, with coming out, a bit of angst, some awesome one-liners and seriously here is a sample of it's awesomeness:

Mike likes to think he’s popular, which is a good way to dive into junior year of high school. Mike’s in a sort-of band with three other popular dudes and Jason, who is barely cool by association, but they let him hang because he’s the only one who knows how to even fucking turn on the Casio. There’s all these switches and buttons, Mike always ends up getting it stuck on Extreme Gothic Organ or something.

* went to the closing night film of sydney film festival and saw "safety not guaranteed" It was really good! funny and had surprise Kristen Bell! For those who know me and my ~feelings~ about time travel, I didn't suffer a rage blackout! it was more a film about regret and other film festival film themes but I am still super happy that I went. Also, that I ate ALL THE FOOD at wagamama's beforehand

* I now have a tumblr! I am meeliesaysno mainly I reblog awesome things? IDK, still figuring tumblr out. Here is my opinion on one thing - safari on iPad HATES gifs. It resizes them to squares that cut off the text. so I played around with some apps, there aren;t that many dedicated for the iPad! the official Tumblr app is only for iPhone. The free apps are pretty rotten, so I splurged and bought Tumblita, I am liking it! My biggest tip: turn your screen to scroll through posts rather than having to select from the dashboard index. This is the article that I looked at that was pretty helpful

* also! like, the LA Kings won the Stanley Cup since I last posted! wow, I have been super slack in posting. I have been busy? and cold! I love that the true love story of Mike and Jeff being re-united has the ultimate happy ending!!

* My new job is still great! I calculated that my pay cut which was the main thing I was worried about, is actually only about $230/month. WORTH IT. SO WORTH IT.

* board games on sat night with [livejournal.com profile] eponymous, [livejournal.com profile] alasen and [livejournal.com profile] erilyn on sat night! Lots of fun! despite getting crazy board game eyes when I got cranky! Taboo was played - turns out I do best when all clues involve Batman, and [livejournal.com profile] alasen did best when we spoke in our own code:

the answer is beer:
me: this is something I like and you hate!
alasen: fun? people? alcohol?
me: more specific!
alasen: beer?
me: yes!

we still lost, but I feel we got to our winning points via a weirder, yet more satisfactory way.
the answer is beard:
me: If i was crying, this is what my tears would be!
alasen: beardy?
me: yes!

(this one only makes sense when taking hockey playoffs into account, and also the new International Sign for beardy tears that I invented a few weeks back)

* I have been watching with [livejournal.com profile] alasen and occasional [livejournal.com profile] gnine the Donald Strachey films! Soooo cute! Really liking it, I think the 2nd is my favourite, but I think we have one more(the 4th?) to go before I can give you my definite decision :)

* I watched Wil Wheaton's "Table Top" episode of settlers of cataan and enjoyed! I think I will need to finally by my own copy rather than relying on friends. the game review was clear and thorough while not being boring, I am looking forward to watching the reviews of games I haven't played.

* music recs!

Divide & Kreate – Dance Dreams [Eurythmics vs. Lady Gaga] It's the first dl link. I first heard this mashup in bradcpu's awesome Tron Legacy vid and eventually found a link for the mp3

now this one is a little more unusual and I am surprised I like it - it is a US football anthem re-mix - DJ Schmolli - Super Bowl Anthem [LMFAO vs. Madonna vs. Europe vs. Queen vs. House Of Pain vs. Reel 2 Real vs. Tag Team vs. MC Hammer vs. Metallica vs. White Stripes & others] It's so catchy! And the video for it is pretty good too(as long as you ignore the football?) Relatedly, here is an article about the origins of The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army" as sports chant

there was a terrible mashup as well of the proclaimers, midnight oil and david guetta's "Titanium" that I thought I liked, but then realised I just liked the "Titanium" parts - the official video is also pretty awesome. It's like a songvid to a mutant/X-men character! Except it ends too soon :( WHAT HAPPENS NEXT TO THE YOUNG MUTANT?? Is it wrong to want fic for a music video?

the other thing is that tegan and sara have a vaguely newish song - they do the lyrics on "Bodywork" by Morgan Page, which I kinda like? It is very much not a Tegan and Sara song, but if you like the "Feel it in My Bones" remix by Tiestro you will be more likely to like "Bodywork"? I love the Feel it in my bones as it is used in my favourite(the only?) The Vampire Diaries threesome songvid by greensilver.

* I am still reading a heap of teen wolf fic, but I am saving up the season 2 eps to strong like ox through?

* ALL THE WORDS

I think the fact that I cannot find a vampire diaries vid that I love is what will finally compel me to make my own.

in other news, does anyone want to recommend an avengers vid that they love love love? Cam footage is all there is at the moment but that can be overlooked for awesome. Also, it is the only way you will get an avengers vid with the Ruffalo. vids that just use the trailer footage look so unfinished! and vids with Ed Norton look so 2008!

ANYWAY.

kick a remote into a nearly full cold cup of coffee and spilling coffee all over papers, the remote, a 2nd remote, all over the floor and getting the sofa wet.

good job me. this is why i don't nap :((((
meelie: (television - teacher mother secret lover)
sydney film festival! I get the emails and then think none of the films sound interesting! except for this one: Safety Not Guaranteed

anyone interested in coming with? saturday 17th at State Theatre, looks like only dress circle is left, $23 each

trailer on youtube
meelie: (meelie - all up in your FASCINATOR)
I was sure my rego for my car was due this month so I went out to check my letterbox(I...tend not to open my letter box? most things I get emailed or it goes to my mums address due to moving so much, so I usually only open it up when it is crammed full) and there was nothing in there so I went to look at my windscreen for the rego sticker. Turns out it's due August! Hurrah? But I am pretty sure my 'OMG I just ran into a Mercedes!' insurance has lapsed. Need to look into that.

today I have worked on my teen wolf pimp, made fun of [livejournal.com profile] alasen having a numb face from dentistry (sorry!), bought myself used copies of Dance Central and NHL '07: All Ovie, All the time.

EB Games Guy: ::looks for the disc:: Is that the 07?
Me: Yeah, I couldn't resist if for $15.
EB GG: Yeah, it's hard to find NHL games in Australia, it's really more of an North America thing
Me: Yep.
EB GG: So you're a fan of big burly guys throwing themselves around and slamming into each other?
Me: ....yes...you could say that....

and now I make the dinners!! and wait for my teen wolf pimp to export so I can realise something is wrong with it and start from scratch for the 3rd time!! /is stupid
meelie: (11 says thumbs up!)
best phrase I have seen to describe succumbing to hockey fandom: stickholmed

work has been busy! I haven't had many thoughts this week, I have been watching a lot of reality tv!

last week the Vampire Diaries season finale made me cryyyyyyyy :(((

I have been re-reading fic lately, I really need to read books! but fic! it is usually the perfect length for my commute!

I am working on a pimp for Teen Wolf for sinpoz! be scared! also, if you are coming but haven'd paid/registered you should go do that!

[livejournal.com profile] alasen and I are playing lego batman again, on and off, and the villain missions are cool! I think we have been re-invigorated by the fact that lego batman 2 is out next month - IT HAS LEGO SUPERMAN THERE IS ONLY AWESOME THERE.
meelie: (comics - deadpool fighty time!)
I'd be happier about the LA Kings sweep if I wasn't convinced that somewhere Mike Richards is celebrating by lovingly choking Jeff Carter. I guess its okay if they are both into it, but WHAT IF Jeff thinks thats the only way Mike will want him??? ALL THE FROWNS.

I have now watched the flyers/rangers road to the winter classic )

also, I now triple mega heart Scott Hartnell of the Flyers(process started when I watched his bid for NHL 13 cover athlete)


everyone even vaguely interested in teen wolf should go hence right now and read Darling It's No Joke by The Hoyden. futurefic au of AWESOMENESS:

The first thing Stiles thinks when he opens the door is that it’s not his birthday, but someone has sent him some kind of cop stripper. The guy is — god, he’s breathtakingly hot, and Stiles is just not this lucky in life. When he moved back to Beacon Hills after college, he had resigned himself to basically not getting laid for the two years he planned to stay.


my tv just said that avengers has had the biggest opening weekend in the US, yay hopefully this will mean even more marvel movies in the future!
meelie: (here are your mp3's hippie)
I think I would be more willing to watch the actual games if all the players were miked up like they are in the road to the winter classic! So many swears! ::chin hands::

[livejournal.com profile] alasen was traumatised by Ovie's junk in the first ep and failed out, but I looked away at a crucial moment(proving that I will always be the cooler guy)

Just finished watching the 2011 penguins/caps and about to start the flyers/rangers, but I am a little worried as I knew some of the caps and penguins players from fic, I haven't read much flyers or rangers(apart from how claude giroux and danny brier were living together in french canadian bliss with danny's kids but then [livejournal.com profile] alasen told me that they don't live together anymore ;_; )(and that the goalie for the rangers is henrik 'hair like a pelt' lunquivsstlotsofv'sandq's)(and that the rangers have a staaaaaal as well, wait is there a staaaaal agenda with the road to the winter classic? will 2013 be eric's year???)(actually maybe I do know enough!)

I HAD A POINT. Um, I think it was how much I enjoyed the first show! and the music was excellent! and how frustrated I am that googling doesn't get me a comprehensive listing of all the tracks used in all the eps. Has anyone got a complete list?


Caught up with fangirls yesterday at slashers who...meet up with other slashers? Good to see peeps! Sorry if I yelled at anyone! Or made fun of their fandom choices! Wait, I'm not sorry about that second one! ;P

I did say that I would make a hockey player attractive post at some point, like, one that is (supposedly) objective and one that is subjective! Like, ranking them according to ME! the problem I see with this is that objective vs subjective is harrrrrd. like, the russians! they are for the most part objectively fug, yet so adorbs! Also rookies. They are cute, but also they are fetus(fetuii?) and therefore there is an edge of wronginess. like i said, harrrrrrrd.

today I am CLEANING ALL THE THINGS. or at least, cleaning things until I get bored and sit around and read fanfic, so you know, 20% cleaning, 80% fanfic reading. As it should be.
meelie: (atlantis - letters from pegasus)
the temper trap's video for "I need your love" is the sequel to the Karate Kid that I need knew I needed!
meelie: (atlantis - grinning scarecrows)
ugh, something in my kitchen smells. I really don't want to find out what.

morning trauma: I don't put my glasses on until after i am conscious but I often put the kettle on first, usually while brushing my teeth(don't ask). This morning I walked to the kitchen, put on the kettle, and on my way back to finish brushing my teeth I noticed that I had stepped on something as I could feel it through my sleep socks. you guys IT WAS A COCKROACH. it was the worst.

I had to throw out the socks, otherwise anytime I put any socks on i would have the lingering thought THESE ARE COCKROACH SOCKS.

happy weekend peeps!
