Said it once (as you'll see) and I'll say it again:

If Katherine Heigl were to be cast, I would cry, and not in the good way.

I know chances are slim this is even going to happen, but this is what I WILL say: I don't really trust this in the hands of anyone. MAYBE the BBC. Just. Leave my story alone, k? :\
dramaturgy: ([DW/T] Armed.)

That Sci-Fi bracket makes me cry. And while I love Dean I HAD to vote for the Doctor because he's the DOCTOR. When I voted they were like, within six votes of each other. IN DEAN'S FAVOR. Vote Doctor!

There's a big long crack in the van's windshield.

I downloaded last night's Heroes to watch (obviously) and Castle, because I love Nathan Fillion, and I'm loving this so far. "A control freak like you with something you can't control? No no no, that's going to be more fun than Shark Week."

dramaturgy: ([SPN] I raised you from perdition.)
[livejournal.com profile] fanficrants should really just have a post that said, "I don't like smushed ship names," and then people can comment "ME TOO!" and then their disdain for smushed ship names can be publicly declared for God and the internet to see. We could even organize it by fandom. But from someone who kind of likes them (sometimes they're cute, sometimes they're clever, and yes, the forced ones are kind of annoying, but it's a fandom shorthand which is an interesting kind of lingual development in itself -- it's the password of a tribe), I'm bored of every. single. post. devolving into "I hate smushed ship names."
"Oh my god, me too."
"Me three!"
"Yeah, me too."
"*insert anecdote about how smushed ship names killed his/her parents and raped the dog*"

Also, the word is 'portmanteau.'

Whatever happened to the 'bisexuals don't exist' wank? Now THERE is a classic.

I'm sitting here at Panera in Davenport (I work at 1 so I had to ride down with my brother in the morning, long story short) and I just turned to look out the window and it was SNOWING. Just a little. But it was definitely snowing. And then I glared outside and it stopped. :D We'll see how long that lasts. Also, I was standing in line to get a sammich (om nom nom) and this little girl (four, maybe fiveish) said, "Gramma, that lady's so tall!"


I went back to Coe yesterday to see Electra, the second fall production. It was amazing, no two ways about it. It reminded me why I love theatre. Not just why I love going to see it, but why I have to make it. I have to do theatre in some way or another. It's one of the few things that all civilizations on earth have had (especially if you're applying a wider definition of theatre), and there's nothing like watching an actor pour themselves into a shell that we call a "character," or helping them to do it.

Also, they made it RAIN in the Dows. That was my first question at the talk back. "I spent four years in this theatre, how did you make it rain?" Basically they took a sprinkler system that would be buried in someone's yard and put it in the grid. I'm gobsmacked. It was brilliant, it worked wonderfully. The walls of the house were supposed to bleed to, since Orestes killed everyone he was supposed to, but the pump jammed and it didn't end up doing that. Damn shame, it would have been awesome.

Everyone was phenomenal. I just. I love it.

My sister, also, skipped classes on Wednesday to go to Chicago with some of her friends to this one Hot Topic where they were selling t-shirts and wristbands to get in an audience with Robert Pattinson. XD It was quite an adventure from the sounds of it. They didn't get in to that smaller audience, but they watched him give a public address in front of Macy's. I asked if he looks as drug addled in person, and she said yes. XD Oh, Robert Pattinson. Never change, please. XD
dramaturgy: ([House] I'm proud of you.)
So I haven't updated much because honestly it's been kind of low-key around here, but today I finally have good news, so here's what's been going on in the last week.

1. I worked two days in a week for the first time in a long time. I love pretending like I'm going to be a contributing member of society.

2. I joined [livejournal.com profile] westerosorting and am working diligently on finishing AFFC so that I can get my app in so I can find out what great house I belong to. \o/

3. I am taking my second GRE on Saturday and I have been relearning how to do algebra, geometry, fractions, and learning about statistics and probability so that I can do better than I did originally. I also wish that I could somehow inherently improve my essay writing skillz like a mofo but alas I don't think it's going to happen. I'm just going to have to make sure that I'm doing my best.

4. On the TV front, my mom has started watching Dirty Sexy Money with me, and my dad has taken to watching Heroes with me so that he can make fun of me when I make noises and yell at the TV. I also finally finished Angel (I liked it, but not as much as I liked Buffy -- it had its moments, like Smile Time wherein Angel becomes a puppet). Joss always kills my favorites, though. The bastard. :( With Angel behind me I no longer have an excuse for not writing Reneesme Cullen/Connor Angel-slash-Reilly I can now watch Doctor Who and Torchwood, which I have started to do -- Doctor Who, anyway. I'm making myself wait for Torchwood (WAH). I think I secretly adore Christopher Eccleston and I want a TARDIS for Christmas.

5. There were many lolz to be had in RP last night. LOLZ are the only reason I do anything anymore.

6. I was contemplating doing NaNoWriMo because I really, really want to and I have an idea and everything, but I'm just not sure. I don't want to start it and be on track only to not do anything for three days in the middle of the month and then boom get behind and discouraged. I might do it anyway, since I don't have pile of homework and three term papers like I have in years past. >_>

7. One reason I love my Movie Gallery job: I get to talk about movies and be paid for it. My co-worker and I last Saturday talked about scary movies with basically every customer who came in and wanted a copy of The Happening, which we can't seem to keep on the shelf. She can't do them at all, and my problem is that I can never seem to find one that's scary enough. The last one I saw that I was truly scared by was The Blair Witch Project which -- okay, say what you want about that movie, but when you're twelve, watching it in the middle of the night because you know your parents wouldn't let you, and watching it in the dark lest mom and dad become suspicious... that is a fucking scary movie. I did not want to get up off the couch to turn off the TV. Maybe I'm too cynical for scary movies, I just end up thinking, "Man. That's lame," and I inevitably get bored.

8. Friday we were all ready to go to my brother's play(s) and then BAM my sister called my mom and asked if anyone was going to come get her. It was her fall break, except she had neglected to tell anyone this until that point. So we changed our plans and went to Cedar Rapids to get her. I took her back yesterday, and reminded her to tell us the next time she wanted to come home. I'm glad that we got to go to CR, though, I love road tripping with my family because seriously. Some of the stuff that happens when I'm out with all of them I could not make up if I tried.

9. Finally, I got that job I interviewed last week for and I am going tonight to do paperwork. \o/ I am going to go crazy but you know what, at least I will be paid. Not particularly well paid, but still paid.

I was reading Stephenie Meyer's BD FAQ (here) because it was linked from F_W (I am hopelessly addicted) and I come across this gem:

Stories need conflict


God, the more I think about it, the more it just feels like a punch in the gut.
dramaturgy: ([HP] Courage?)
Also, if you're living under a rock, the decision for JKR v. RDR Books was handed down, favoring JKR. Which I think is good, and I'm not really interested in wanking about it (but I will read wank about it *camped out at F_W*), but there is one thing that I wish people would stop asking.

dramaturgy: (We are the couch)
Unspeakables need to stop taking walks through my brain.

[livejournal.com profile] kaesa, I BLAME YOU!

I need more sleep.

At request of [livejournal.com profile] wolf_cat I looked at [livejournal.com profile] triofqf's newest set of challenges, and read:

-The Weasleys disapprove of the Trio.
-The Grangers disapprove of the Trio.

and immediately thought, "What about the Potters?!" I am such an insensitive fuck. Or maybe just stuck in a land of MWPP RPGs where James and Lily are alive and don't think they're going to die.
dramaturgy: (Um. Okay.)
Okay, I just had a thought.

Say two students were using the Room of Requirement to have a snog or something else, but a student comes along who needs the room more. Say they're being chased by Filch or Mrs. Norris.

... What happens? Are the snoggers booted from the room? Does the kid walk in on the snoggers?
dramaturgy: (Sex on Legs)
Thank God I'll be a poor college student next year. I won't have the money to eat when I'm depressed.

EDIT: Woe! I was so enjoying the lilt and rhythm of 'Remus Josiah Lupin'. But I got the half-blood bit right. :D

I was nominated for best NML lurker.

I think that speaks for itself, don't you?

And I see that our dear friend [livejournal.com profile] harumph was nominated several times. ... Mwah. :)

EDIT: AH HA HA! THE SITE, [livejournal.com profile] harumph, THEY NOMINATED THE SITE!

This is the best day ever.

Am on [livejournal.com profile] fandombitches's list. My life is complete.


Alex and I sticky-noted Katie's car last night. That was fun.

By the by, marching band season is so officially on.

I just posted at Orange Crush.

I think I'm ill. o_0

I think "The Replacements" is my new favorite movie.

Disappointed in the lack of fanfiction for that particular movie, though. Oh well.

Have four more stories left for PA. Actually, more like two and a half maybe, I've read the first few chapters of all, I just have to fill out the judging forms. Meh.

I think I'm going to bed.

I'm having so much fun with the NML Awards

[livejournal.com profile] harumph's site was nominated for an award. It deserves an award -- but its so old. :D It was up in my virgin days of the 'net. OTOH, Strictly Sidoni got nominated, too, so its all good.

[livejournal.com profile] relic5_5 was also nominated for a butt load of awards. Go on' head with you bad self, girl.

Can't believe I didn't nominate [livejournal.com profile] ktnb for "Best Lurker". I've been on that list for almost two years and I've never heard anything out of you.

::poke:: Everyone, go vote for me. Whenever you see the name "Smalls", just click! Click randomly for everyone else, but vote for meeee!

And vote for Voodoo and Relic, too, they're wonderful people and big Newsies fans. :)

By this time next year the uber fic will be done... I hope...

And, and, and, we have a date for ORDER OF THE PHOENIX! June 21, people! June 21, 2003! :D ::dances around:: on the morning of June 20, you will be able to find me at Barnes and Noble. ::g::
