viedma: I will rule the world! Emperor Cupcake! (Boosh: It's Just Really Small)
Had a mighty fine birfdaye yesterday-- the whole family called and we gabbed, and I got excellent Twilight swag from [livejournal.com profile] violetisblue. I want to be buried in my pretty new Twilight t-shirt and pretty new hairclips from Herbivore. The best present? Finding out [livejournal.com profile] violetisblue's eyeball pressurzz are A-OK. Not that I didn't think they wouldn't be, but I feel better all the same.

So speaking of Twilight, here is a little note I would write to the BBC if I thought they listened to such things:

Dear BBC,

I like Twilight very much as naturally I would. But that doesn't mean I want Edward Cullen lookalikes to be in my every waking moment, the same way I wouldn't want to eat my nice little vegan sushi rolls with brown rice and collard greens. Okay, bad example, but still-- isn't the doctor supposed to be different than what's come before? He's regenerated into the exact same person! Kenny, what gives?

No love, Mary

p.s. If the Doctor and the Rose clone snack on mountain lions and play superfast baseball then all will be forgiven. Eventually.

Whew, busy day today. The best part about January 1st is starting a new bunch of planners. It all started as a way to keep track of the books I read and when I finish them as I have the memory capacity of a demented goldish, but now I'm a planner addict. I have three. One is in my checkbook wallet and has things in it like hair appointments and contacts I may need. One sits on my desk at work and never budges. One sits on my nightstand and is more of a diary in the American sense, with little bits of paper I collected over the year, stickers, etc. It starts to look more like a scrapbook by year's end, except this scrapbook has long weeks where nothing is written in them besides GARDENING or MEDIAWEST SUCKED THIS YEAR, stuff like that. One is for the little boy who lives down the lane.


I want to know who Eleven is now, please. Saturday is too far away.

I only tuned in to see if David Morrissey was capable of smiling and wow, a Doctor Who special that didn't make me want to kill myself. I'd heard that such an animal was possible but I didn't believe it. It was actually not awful! And the Sta-Puft Cyber Transformer was great for lolz.

[livejournal.com profile] violetisblue got me the cutest bike basket, all green filigree and it has a strap for when you want to use it to go shopping. and a Donna Noble figure and a tiny pink robot; they're already friends on the windowsill. Four is going to be joining them later for grilled soy cheese sammiches. \o/

[livejournal.com profile] violetisblue had an early doctor's appointment, so I'm up. Lucky you!

Reading
Not too much as of late. I finished Fingersmith by Sarah Waters right before vacation a couple of weeks ago and it popped the top off my little peanut head quite nicely. Seriously, it's an amazing book, one of those where you think you're reading one thing, and it's nothing like that at all, and the reversals and deviousness keep piling up and piling up and oh man. I incoherently loved it.

Have been slogging through The Museum of Dr. Moses by Joyce Carol Oates and cannot get into these ten short stories. Saturday I started one called "Feral" and just lost it ala Tom Servo in the Gamera films: you take everything good and you rip my heart out! *glub glub* Will take it back unfinished.

And I picked up a copy of "Westcountry Mysteries" off Ebay last week. The first true thrilling tale is called "The Beast of Exmoor." It couldn't *possibly* be a wild cat who was killing sheep because the wildlife pickings were particularly thin one year, oh noes! It were a mysterious raging hellbeast! Good times.


Watching
The Sarah Jane Adventures. Couple of things: 1. I love it, 2. When did Sarah Jane get hot? I always thought she was pretty before but never rang any bells and now it's all NOM NOM NOM all the time, and 3. Crotchwoot wishes it had a tenth of the dignity these kids get to have. We watched Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane last night. [livejournal.com profile] violetisblue thinks it's a good cross between It's a Wonderful Life and Hellraiser, which is just about perfect.

Last week's Doctor Who wasn't as bad as the trailer made it look, but that would've been pretty hard to do as it made me feel like an un-MSTed Hobgoblins episode. It ultimately get a thumbs-down from me because the civilization that has been screwing up for umpteen berdillion centuries before the Doctor and his gang come along and solve everything in 13 minutes? How many of these episodes does a gal need exactly? But has little bits in it that were fantastic, and most of them had to do with Doctor-Donna. Doctor-Donna makes me squee. It makes me want to put on the tinfoil hat and basically never take it off. It's not anything they did specifically in this ep that did it, it's more of an overall feeling of "See that Donna over thar? She are Teh Boss of Me." Oh merciful heavens yes. She tells him to jump and he says how high. NOM NOM NOM NNNOOMRRRRGHHHHHH.

Please let me change the subject before I lose the remaining shreds of my dignity.

Gardening
I planted some asparagus crowns this weekend. The instructions said they don't like cold damp soils, so naturally the day after I planted them we had 30 mph winds and about an inch of rain. Still, here's hoping. The garden is amazing, actually-- mostly what I'm doing is weeding, composting, and trying to stay out of the way while it does its thing. Yesterday when I Freecycling one of my young maple trees my neighbor runs out and says, "I hope you don't mind, I have a lilac bush that's under a tree and it doesn't get enough shade. Would you mind taking it off my hands? And I was like, um, well, see the thing is OF COURSE I'LL TAKE IT OMG. She's such a nice lady. This weekend am going to stimulate the economy by getting a couple more bleeding heart plants for the front bed.


Fan Stuff
A lot of that lately. I finished all my crafty stuff for Mediawest: Flying Spaghetti Monsters and some Harry Potter themed knitted stuff. The latter I'm going to try and sell at the art auction. Considering no one has more than two nickels to rub together I *probably* could've picked a better year to start doing this, but fuck it.

Am finished choosing pictures for a Hot Fuzz moodtheme and am only waiting on someone who promised me a .gif of Nicholas Angel jumping over fences for "bouncy" and "hyper". Anyone else know how to make an animated .gif? *paces paces*

Am also almost but not quite finished as well with the first draft of a Hot Fuzz story written with [livejournal.com profile] annlarimer. It's about swans. Last night I cracked the 7000 word mark, 'crack' being the action word in this sentence.

"In his soul, Bond is a charming and bookish lesbian. This inner conflict is the root of his psychosis. Or, yknow, massive brain lesions."-- [livejournal.com profile] annlarimer, explaining the appeal James Bond holds for me. Thus....(*drumroll*)...new default icon! Because I don't have the stomach the heart to find a screencap of Connery in Zardoz and put it on top of that, even though it would make more contextual sense.

That gave me an idea for a panel at MediaWest:

1. James Bond and Doctor Who, let's talk about these two modern British archetypes. (I'm not qualified to do this panel as I don't know enough about either of them to moderate it well, so I'm throwing it out there in case anyone reads this and wants to go for it.)


The second one came to [livejournal.com profile] violetisblue last night and I think it's a winner--

2. "HOW MANY TIMES CAN I SAY NO???" Your friends are trying to pimp you into fandoms that you hate. Discuss coping strategies with similarly aggrieved fans.

I like this one, but it would degenerate into "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DON'T LIKE X, ZOMG OPPRESHUN!!" I would have to keep order with a lot of yelling and a bullhorn. But I might like that. Hmmm.


[livejournal.com profile] violetisblue watched me cut open the pink checkerboard cake o' doom this morning, and put all my fears to rest by saying it's lovely. Now I have to figure out who's going to eat it, because most of the pleasure is in the making, not the eating. You guys want to come over, help me out with a slice?

First day of vacation! I made

tempeh wingz and "bacon"

two loaves of chikin-flavored seitan, much to [livejournal.com profile] annlarimer's horror

a checkerboard cake with Strawberry frostin'. A neopolitan cake, if you will. it will either be delicious or something i'll regift to the co-workers. I inhaled a lot of cake batter. I only regret it a little.

Now i'm in the living room with a blanket on my lap, a purring Casey stretched out on my legs, Googlechatting and exploring Comcast on Demand. Oo, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, you say?

I redid my journal again! [livejournal.com profile] gypsyjr made the most excellent header pic; she does LJ commissions for a price that can't be beat. I'm very pleased with it. And I know what you're all thinking. Why isn't Sophie sitting on the chair that says "Thug for Life"? That's so she can look at the Thug for Life sweater and know it's all about her. Don't feel silly for asking, it's all part of the process.

Last week I got some vegan cheese in the mail that had been praised to the skies by a ton of vegans. The best thing I could say about it is that I didn't want to immediately spit it out into the trash can and scrub my mouth out with something pungent, so right away it's better than Follow Your Heart. Yeah, it melts-- so does playdough when you leave it in a car on a hot day. Not something you want to put on a quesadilla. Who wants to bet that they gave some real mozzarella to the food reviewers and did a bait and switch for the rest of us? That would be funny and something I could get behind.

The upshot is that I freecycled the rest of it to a very nice lady who absolutely loved it and left a message on the answering machine saying she put it on her strawberries. Between her and the lady who left a note on my car with her phone number telling me she liked my Praise Seitan bumpersticker I'm thinking of having a little informal vegan dinner party at our house sometime. I sense fun in the works for a project like this, so long as they don't reject me utterly for not being vegan. >.>

I liked last night's Doctor Who ep, much to my surprise. I liked the way Donna brought the Doctor out of his zomg suckspiral in a kind way. I like how not everything is not about her; it wouldn't even occur to her that it would be. So not my favorite, but it didn't make me wish I was watching vegan cheese melt instead. Too many interviews where Rusty goes WTF you actually pay attention to the *plot*, what kind of pathetic loser are you??? have left me with a lot of resistant hostility to the show. Personally, I find that kind of defensiveness baffling. The great thing about the old show was that no matter how silly or incomprehensible the plot it didn't matter, because the actors performed it with conviction. I'm finding I like the whole winking a the camera thing less and less. And sometimes I have to remind myself that just because the new show ridicules fans for watching the show doesn't mean I can't watch and enjoy. As Vali says, they toss it and leave it, and we'll pull up quick to retrieve it. :)

After that we put in Gilda. We fell in love with Hazel K's fanvid of the movie (am sorry to say I don't know where the vid is now, I can't google it) and had to watch the movie, glove-stripping and all. What started off as an amazingly obsessive love triangle completely fell apart in the final ten minutes. But except for that and some tungsten b-plot they kept harping about that never made any sense, it was pretty good. Rita Hayworth made everything everything so dirty, bless her.

Cinematic Titanic news )

See isn't that nice? Vali and I would sell our souls to get them to come to Chicago to perform, oh please, oh please!

Vali and I are making pad thai for Doctor Who Fail Day tomorrow. Or mole skillet pie, we're not sure. We've decided to treat series 4 like a MSTing experiment, roasted fresh from the kitchens of Rusty "Issues? Oh, a TAD" Davies. Well, it was roasted fresh, then it was covered in mayonnaise and left in the trunk of the car for two weeks. Anyway, not expecting it to be good at all comes with a sense of relief. Vali and I have tough MSTy hides. *And* we've watched The Starfighters multiple times and lived to tell the tale, so bring it on, fat boy.

I am obsessed with this James Bond fanvid, won't you join me? When did I realize I was a secret agent junkie? Was it Secret Agent Super Dragon or Danger! Death Ray MSTings played on endless loops when I needed cheering up? Was it the way I was completely, unironically charmed the first time I watched Goldfinger? Or was it Vali's really sexy secret agent story for LADIES, called The Ladies Secret Agent Story? It could be all those things, but I say it's high time I admitted my addiction to myself.

(Okay, is not actually called The Ladies Secret Agent Story, but I can't remember the title and Amazon doesn't want to spit it out.)

I just got in a nice man who watched The Mist and was sorted of messed up by the ending, and I got to smile cryptically and say, I can't tell you the ending, but I think you'll like the story a lot better. I love when I get to do stuff like that. And we actually had the short story collection on the shelf, a miracle! And yesterday I got to select books to beef up our labor studies collection, and I think I chose very well for the money we were allowed to spend. When I actually get to do library stuff I am really very happy with my job.

I am wearing an olive greenish brown pullover. It is not green. It just happened to be the thing that caught my eye when I yanked clothes out of the closet. I am not celebrating some crazy white person's holiday. I don't have much use for St. Patrick's Day as the only drinks I pretty much ever have are water, diet pepsi, and tea, Earl Grey, hot.

So there's this thing going around LJ called a Doctor Who anonymeme. This is because certain fen out there are getting grouchy waiting for their show to pop back onscreen. It's the equivalent to fans picking fights during summer rerun season, or your pet bird who won't shut up until you put the cover over its cage. And my sweetie has been mentioned more than once on it, congrats honey! You know you've arrived when people get really irritated by your existence.

So far as I can make out, these are her crimes:

*She writes fanfic that people really like.

*She has opinions.

*She crossposts.

*She doesn't crosspost.

*She prefers characters who read to characters who'd rather shove chips and tiemcock into every orifice.

*She has online friends and enjoys their company.

*She picked a name for her community ([livejournal.com profile] bestenemies) before someone else got to snag it. (To which I say to you all in total honesty: You are a baby, a kindergarten baby. Wash your face in gravy. Wrap it up in bubblegum and send it to the Navy.)

*She misspelled a couple of words. (See, in my world, when I spy a misspelling, a send the person a quick note pointing it out instead of ridiculing someone about it. That is because I am not an asshole.)

And I know what you're thinking-- why didn't they talk about the fact that sometimes she hogs the blankets and kicks me under the covers just because she can? And sometimes when we go out for ice cream she only takes a couple of bites and has me finish the rest so I'll get fat? Or the time she made me quit smoking when we moved in together?

I leave anonymemes feeling dissatisfied because they never hit on the real issues.

Vali had the day off because of the nasty winter weather (all of her co-workers live in unincorporated hellholes that don't have money for commie pinko socialist programs like snow removal). I, otoh, had to go.

(WHERE ARE MY VIOLINS)

I was really grumpy about it, especially when I accidentally removed the driver's side windshield wiper and spent 15 minutes in the snow trying to put the fucking thing back on. Eventually I pleaded with a neighbor help my poor frustrated self. Yes, I'm 36 and don't know how to put on my own windshield wipers. Now is your moment to feel superior.

Vali's all relaxed and stuff, updating her Recs Page and generally just having a swell time. I look at her and think, it must be nice not to be perpetually grouchy. I should try it sometime.

So I subscribe to a mailing list called Meatout Mondays, and this week they had a recipe for jalapeno poppers made with vegan cream cheese. They were FRANTASTIC. ::thud:: Vali and I have become popper eatin' fools. The irony is that I almost deleted the recipe because it had the subject line "poppers" and thought it was more spam.

(I realize the mailing list is just so much vegan product placement, but in this case Tofutti's Better Than Cream Cheese totally deserves it. Nom Nom Nom.)

the recipe, for those folks who are interested )

Along with the jalapeno poppers, I made tempeh wingz, tempeh bacon, and banana nut muffins. With butter. When they find a nonhydrogenated margarine that doesn't taste like ass, I will be more than happy to make the switch. Until then.

Cinematic Titanic's newest project, The Oozing Skull, is really excellent. We were too nervous, worried that it might suck, to fully appreciate how good it was the first time we watched it, but now we're really in the swing of things. It's really hard to make fun of a movie without descending into open contempt for the finished project. I guess I missed the Joel years more than I realize. The point is, you should buy it and stuff. (My favorite riff is the title of this entry.)

Took co-worker friend to see her Garfield cat again today. She really likes him, but hasn't committed yet. I'm not telling her because it's not right to be pushy, but if she wants him she'd better act quick. He's a completely adorkable squeeze toy attention hound. I came in today to find him all propped up on the lap of luxury on some nice lady's lap. But it's cool, I just want to see him get adopted into a nice home, I really don't care where ultimately.

Went trolling through Doctor Who Icons last night. I found some really excellent ones, and yet I still feel grumpy and dissatisfied.

Three rhetorical questions for you Doctor Who fans all out there )

And Billie Piper, isn't there a union rule that says you HAVE to let other actresses take a few roles? The UK acting community has collapsed because she is currently in every 3rd role on television. Please stop her before she inevitably gets tagged to play Mary Russell. The sad thing is, she would be *perfect* to play Mary Russell; she sort of has the lock on "I'm an irritating blonde twat who grinds the action to the halt and has the entire universe revolve around her" roles.

...

Mmm. Peckish. Poppers are a-callin'. Then I have to finish The Game. Only 120 pages left to go. (::cries::)

And the next one, for me this time...


Ahh, tax season at the library, oh my it's a joyful place. I would like to take this moment to tell all the people who won't be reading this that I am not a tax professional, I never will be a tax professional. I just hand out the forms. Trust me when I tell you I have no super-secret knowledge I am keeping from you just to make your life hard. If I knew how to answer the question, believe me when I tell you that I would've answered it half an hour ago and saved myself a lot of aggravation.

Someday I'm going to say why not when someone pushes me like this and just give out random bits of half-cocked advice just to see what'll happen. Or maybe not.
viedma: I will rule the world! Emperor Cupcake! (Want Monkey! K FINE.)
...a ginormous brunch sometime around 2PM, followed by a solid afternoon of Do Whatever The Hell You Want. Ahhhh.

Yesterday Vali made chili sin carne al mole from Vegan with a Vengeance. She let the sofrito simmer longer than when she made this last time, and it produced the loveliest slow burn sensation in the mouth, yum. That and some garlicky kale with tahini dressing and brussels sprouts, and the memory of tinned dog food haggis is far, far away.

Vali's reading experiences have been more satisfying to her than mine have been of late. I'm reading The Game by Laurie King. It's not awful, it's just that I don't buy the central premise of the tale: that Sherlock Holmes would not just marry a woman, but marry a woman several million years younger than himself. But have no fear! She's tough! Smart! Beautiful but not too Beautiful! Resourceful! She's Mary Russell!: the wonder somethin'-or-other. (eyeroll)

I'd've ditched it ages ago, but I have to read it because it's for the book group I run and I don't remember things quite as well if I listen to them on tape. So mentally I've been searching and replacing Mary Russell with Watson. So far it's working, even when Watson has to wear a sari to the fancy dress ball on the slow boat to India.

There is one May-December couple that I totally buy, and that's Eight/Lucie Miller. Am listening to Blood of the Daleks and they are just yowsa, and it's made all the better by the fact that Lucie really doesn't care for Eight all that much. HOWEVER, i will be extremely grateful when we can get past this cultural moment of The Big All-Encompassing War That Will Change Everything garbage. It's not like I can blame Americans for this one either, as it's an English production. Here it's more of a case of "Lord of the Ring/later book Harry Potter"itis. Also, Daleks are lame and they suck and they will never be interesting no matter how much stirring music you put behind their screaming. I like the little moments better, of which there are many.

Am keeping happy by reading Vali's Life on Mars fanfic recs. I love how Sam Tyler and Gene Hunt bring out every retro impulse and every slash cliche ever, and do it in such a completely hot way. Moar, said the fangirl!

--Buffy comic, virtual season eight, number eight. I was reading it and wondering why it seemed so familiar, and wouldn't you know it? The downside to this largesse is that you get the really upsetting cover that has Faith drowing Buffy. o.O

--Lesbian Pulp Fiction: The Sexually Intrepid World of Lesbian Paperback Novels 1950-1955. [livejournal.com profile] violetisblue and I are the worst lesbians in the world. I mean, we totally flunk. When I'm not spending a good portion of my waking hours figuring out how to get two policemanofficers from the West Country to fall in love, Vali is singeing my eyebrows off with Doctor/Master slash.

Speaking of, you really should read Vali's and [livejournal.com profile] jonquil's latest story, Velleity. And then join [livejournal.com profile] bestenemies. And then give them all your money and toys. ::slobber::

And then when you've picked yourself off the floor read [livejournal.com profile] annlarimer's Curse of the Cuddly Monkey and fall right back down again with lols. This story has completely ended me.


Ahh, good times. I had a nice three days off. I even got stuff done that I wanted to do, for a change. I've been exercising a bit more and that's making me feel a little bit better. This is my favorite exercise tape. It's the perfect combination of catchy rhythms and lots of different kinds of jiggly eyecandy being put through their paces by a friendly gay man. With the whole yoga and pilates craze I sometimes feel as if I'm the only one in the world who still likes step aerobics. It's even harder to find step aerobics routines that don't sound like they're set to your little brother's Casio, but I'll manage. It'll be biking season in a couple of months anyway.

Last night we watched the latest remake of Persuasion on PBS. It was lovely, yet there was something missing, namely why on Earth would anyone want to be with Anne Elliot. Sally Hawkins seems like a wonderful actress, but it looked like a pretty thankless job to act stunned at things for 90 solid minutes. Giles, OTOH, looked hot as a 19th century Krillitane. It suits him. Here's hoping Northanger Abbey will be a little bit better. The book was a hoot.

And I'm learning to cook without consulting recipes. It's weird.

I did other stuff too, but now I can't remember what it was. Watching The Five Doctors (my choice) has put me into a pleasant little coma.
viedma: I will rule the world! Emperor Cupcake! (Default)
STFU UNCOOL BAKER! Also, Tennant-as-clown warning. o.O

Vali and I finished watching the last ep of Sapphire and Steel. Now THAT was a behind the sofa moment. L'eep. O_O Now I have to listen to the Big Finish Audios.

Now we're watching songvids to bring us back into the realm of light and love.

Speaking of songvids, why hasn't anyone done a Who vid to No Pussy Blues? Vali and I go about the house going Whoo! Damn! at odd moments. What are you looking at me for, saying I should do it myself? I have all the technical know-how to knit socks and that's about it.

If I knew how to vid I'd do a Doctor Who one to Ferraby Lionheart's Small Planet. Not simply 'he loves them all' but 'he's in love with everything Earth' vibe. Seriously, with a name like Ferraby Lionheart you have no choice but to steal the mellow folk sensation mantle away from Roger Whittaker. Vali bought me the album for Christmas and it is the perfect thing to listen to after a long day at the reference desk. Sweet, gentle, but not so syrupy as to put you into a diabetic coma.

And now Vali and [livejournal.com profile] jonquil are working on the FAQ for their latest project. When they're both in busy workerbee mode I can't help but imagine them both as chibis, tips of their tongues poking out of their mouths. Occasionally it ends with one of them tipping over the others crayon cup, then pushing, shoving, and little cartoon fight clouds before they collapse into a sweet little puppy-pile heap. <3

Today's my birthday! I'm 36 and Vali bought me a lobster claw to steam as a tribute and stuff. Love? I can has. :D

Two things completely unrelated to me that I will appropriate as birthday presents:

1. Clinton sucked wind in Iowa-- this pleases me so much I can't tell you. Half a present goes to the first guy who finger-wags me for not Standing Up For The Sisterhood.

2. Jamie McCrimmon, the Doctor's Actual Proper Soulmate Part III. (The rest in this great series are here.) Okay, we're going to shoot this at a Guinness plant, so get loaded then climb down off the roof and swing from a helicopter ladder. Also, Isobel + Zoe= Yes Please. <3 <3 <3


I lost my brother's Target gift card. I am :(. I honestly don't remember tossing it. What's more likely is that I put it Somewhere Safe (like in Brigadoon) and sometime in 2013 I'll go Hey Neat-- Windfall!

Bright side-- while looking for Brother's Missing Gift Card I've found a lot of fun stuff. And a missing CD speaker. And a lot of postcards.

Who wants a postcard? Comments on this entry are screened so if you want one, drop me a response with your name and address. Don't worry about where you live, either. Even if you live in Antarctica, it's all good. I feel like sending them out far and wide.

I changed my journal around. I <3 it nao. It's purple and silly, much like myself.

Watching The Caves of Androzani mostly because it had Five in a most excellent blackout blindfold, but am giggling lots at the OMG THIS R SRS TV SHOWE vibe that the fanboys seem to enjoy. The guy in the leather harlequin mask who likes to backhand Five isn't helping. This certainly puts RTD's crush on Ten in perspective. I'm guessing Peter Davidson made a bet where he would do any kind of kinky bondage that JNT could come up with, provided that this was his PINKY SWEAR last episode.

I let my Air America subscription expire as the only person I liked to listen to on the network started to develop a serious Ron Paul fixation in the absence of any sensible evidence. I'm finding I don't miss it at all.

Also, I got tired of my LJ being a place where I felt I had to react to The Latest Important News of the Day, so I'm kind of stopping that now. I know how I feel about stuff, and the tree that fell in the forest that no one heard did made a sound. So there.

Having said that, I hope John Edwards does well in the Iowa Caucuses tomorrow.
