chokethewind: (HIMYM // Boys are just)
Can I just say that I loved this week's HIMYM to itty bitty pieces?  It was so perfect.  I was all self-righteously indignant at the beginning because of Robin's storyline and was going to rant about how they've thrashed her character in terms of her career (I guess this is still relevant, even with the ending, but that's for another time) but I just ended up laughing and smiling.  The last few eps we've had have been pretty strong, and I love the direction this season is taking.  It feels like to me that they skip strong seasons - seasons 2 and 4 are my favorite, with 3 and 5 being "meh," even with the gems in the season 3 (because I feel like season 5 had so little) .  Season 1 is exempt since it was the first, though I did feel like the show hit its stride with Ted and Robin together (I still love them together - as much, if not more, than Barney/Robin).

Anyway, that's my fandom rant of the week.

chokethewind: (HIMYM // WAIT FOR IT IT'S)
I haven't talked about fandom in forever! I realized that while I was dozing and for some reason it wouldn't leave me alone, the things I've been reading/watching the past few months, so!  Here they are:

- Anime/Japanese thing wise .... pretty much zilch.  I've stayed current and hip with the KH fandom and the new KH games, but as I haven't played Birth By Sleep, I haven't really ventured into looking at fic for it.  You would think for someone who organizes anime conventions that I would be more in tune with anime... but not really.  I mean, I'm pretty good at what's hip with the rest of the world, I just don't watch/read it lately.  I fail.

-TV shows.  Now that's a whole new matter entirely.  I banged through three seasons of Skins (will get to the fourth eventually).  Banged through all six seasons of Weeds.  Am on episode 4 of the Walking Dead.  Misfits is my next adventure.  Watched all of Matt Smith's run as the Doctor (I love Matt Smith, I cannot deny).  It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is on my backburner, as it's been demanded by my friends that I watch it.  Will be marathoning all three seasons of Arrested Development on the 12th.  Am current on Glee and How I Met Your Mother.  I did horrible and only saw two episodes of this last season of White Collar, which I need to fix because Matt Bomer is beautiful.

- I watched the Human Centipede. It was not as terrifying as I was anticipating.  Have seen Harry Potter, Paranormal Activity 2, and Tangled lately in the theatre.  Watched Love Actually repeatedly in the past few weeks.  Have watched How to Train Your Dragon repeatedly as well - that movie is my life.

- Musically, it's been all My Chemical Romance and Courtney Marie Andrews lately.  I went to a Margot and the Nuclear So and So's show last month and couldn't get in since it was sold out, so my sister and I camped in the parking lot and listened to from the car.  Despite it being freezing, it was actually pretty awesome. No obnoxious idiots to compete with.  Dear and the Headlights broke up, which has been bumming me out.  I missed a Pierce the Veil show this last Sunday and I'm kicking myself over it.  They'll be back in Tucson in January, so I'm hoping (foolishly) I might get to that show.  But mostly, just MCR and Courtney Marie.  You should listen, girl sounds like an angel.  Don't let the folk/bluegrass label fool you.  Start with Oak Creek.

- Bookwise, I've been pretty tame.  I'm on and off again reading the Locke and Key series - it's a graphic novel series written by Joe Hill, who is Stephen King's son and wrote the only book that's scared me in recent memory, Heart Shaped Box.  I'm still really obsessed with the Hunger Games series, which I guess you could say is my biggest fandom at the moment.  I was mostly re-reading things I've had, though I made a decent effort at The Bell Jar, before abandoning it for my current love, The Passage, by Justin Cronin.  It was widely reviewed and raved about in Time and I had a half off coupon at Borders the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, so I had to grab it.  It's been fun so far, I've still got about 400 pages left.

- I've been writing in This Frenzied State.  It's slow coming, but it feels so good.

Sorry for the double post.  It's 6am and I can't sleep.

I have worked twelve days in a row, and now I am off for three days and don't know what to do with myself.  HUZZAH.

It's also a day for drinking, but I am poor until Friday, so drinking may not occur too heavily.  Tomorrow I am supposed to take my friend to get her license - since she is older than me and we have discussed this for three years now. >.>  But to be fair, I moved away and we're both lazy and our days off don't match and ... I have my license, so it's not my top priority. xD  But she does not!  So we are finally getting it done. I hope.

I got into a fight with my mom last week and we're still not really talking, but I am going to make her breakfast on Sunday.  I'm looking to get a little creative, and not just the regular French toast/eggs deal.  Suggestions?  Something easy?  I am a horrible cook, but I'm adventurous, and I'd like to do something fun, so have at it.

I haven't caught up on Glee for the past two weeks yet, but I watched this week's HIMYM, and I AM DISAPPOINT.  But then I saw the new White Collar crossover promos with the other USA shows and was like OMG MATT BOMER SWOON.  /cough

I've broken down where I'd like to visit in a few weeks into a few locations: Washington, Washington, D.C., New York, New Orleans (new one), and back to San Francisco.  I've been to SFO (I have found myself constantly abbreviating city names to their major airports; curse you American Airlines and your brainwashing) a few times, but I've not been by myself, and I haven't done a lot of things I've wanted to do, like Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz.  If I end up doing this, it's going to be on an extremely tight budget, but I can make it work.  Mainly I just walk around like a tourist and take pictures with my phone.  Like, ya know, a normal tourist does.  

All in all, working has been taking my mind off how utterly miserable I was feeling.  I'd work, come home, and sleep, jump up, clean some stuff, and shoot off to work again.  Too much free time makes me a sad panda I guess.

Off to bushwhack my eyebrows.  I expect your sympathy.

Does someone biting their own nails turn anyone on?  I swear.  We always have creeps call and so it doesn't bug me so much as amuse me, but this guy took my name and then we chatted about flights for few moments, and then he brings up nail biting and asks if I do and I answered truthfully and he takes this long, shuddery moan, tells me to hold, and then I can hear panting.

O.O

Does nail biting turn anyone in their right mind on?  I don't understand.  I see some weird things, but nail biting?  Come on.  I want to get an alias like woah, orz.  These people having my name is starting to trip me out.

There is a con here in October.  During Halloween. I will be cosplaying.  I am officially a nerd.  The KH tattoo wasn't enough.  Leeroyy Jennkiins.

I'm also beyond pumped for September, because lotsa awesome things are gonna happen in September.  Well really, just Lydia tour in Texas and HIMYM comes back, but that's all important stuff now.  It's all trippy to me that it's nearly December.  Well, I mean, it's still months away, but it feels so close.  I don't like this time jumping around fast thing at all.

chokethewind: (HIMYM- Robin)
And now for something completely different. This is the first thing I've ever posted on here that wasn't KH. Harhar.

Title: The Not Too Far Distance
Fandom: How I Met Your Mother
Rating/Word Count: G/ 4, 235
Timeline: Set after “The Leap”
Summary: Barney has a gun. Robin is amused. Ted thinks they’re both out of their minds, and he never wanted half-Canadian babies anyway.

Author’s Notes: I’ve been trying to get this story out of my head for months now. I wrote the beginning in May on a scrap of paper at work and the rest just all spilled out tonight. Don’t really know what to say, except to me, at the end, it’s going to be Ted and Robin, like it was at the beginning. Cheers.

This is only second foray into HIMYM. Plz to be being gentle.

Ted didn’t say anything for awhile. He thought about a few things, like blue horns and breakfast and Halloween and how Leia kissed her brother before she realized who Luke was. Robin was looking at him beseechingly, like she wanted him to validate something, needed him to validate something. )
chokethewind: (HIMYM- Not scotch but it'll)
So the past few days were full of fail in Texas.  At one point we had over 2000 calls on hold.  If there's bad weather in Dallas it affects our entire system since that's our hub.  Hence hundreds of stranded people.  Poor kids.  We also laid off over 1500 people this week.  Not me, or any in any other reservations office.  Which is good, for me at least, not so good for my fellow employees elsewhere.  Sadface.  Weather's calmed down, but I got some mad overtime in.  Hellza yea.

Also, some guy (presumably an agent/groupie/someone) called to extend a reservation for Nicole Richie and when I did it he hung up and thanked me and then went, "I appreciate it, and so does Nicole."  Pause.  "Well, thanks for calling American, have a good day."  Pause.  "Oh. Okay, bye."

Like I was supposed to explode into soapy bubbles of joy?  I lol'd.  He also extended the reservation for her father and son (Harlow Madden. He belongs to that Good Charlotte guy I think) and her nanny.. who sat in coach.  While they sat in first.  Which I guess makes sense but it seemed kinda cold to me.  Her nanny totally had a name some weird exotic Russian name too.  Idk, I'm still lol'ing over the whole ordeal.

Oh, haz a kitty picture which inspired the crack below.  He's cute when he wants to be.  Most time he's antisocial, avoids me, and then gets weird moods where he lets me pet him and then totally bites me.  Idk, he also only has one ear so his name is EJ.  Evander Junior.  Yea, that's totally bad taste, good job adoption agency people.


 

Been rewatching the second season of himym.  I've been feeling like a bum lately when I'm not working.


chokethewind: (HIMYM- Boys are just)
Seriously, it's a sitcom, I have no idea why I love it so or why I just started rewatching it even though I like, already just finished watching it.

This is why I never sleep.  I have silly ideas in my head.

Just totally did a fic that wasn't KH.  It's been... forever.  It's on my FFN account if anyone...cares but I don't think there's anyone on my flist into the fandom.  THREE GUESSES AND THE ICON TOTALLY DOESN'T GIVE IT AWAY.

12 hour shift tomorrow, whatup!

Other than that, I need to edit stuff, and clean my room, and my car, and count my pennies.  Penny counting: srs bznss.  

I have no idea what I'm talking about anymore.  24 days until Lydia.  So.  Stoked.
