Mmmm. Soup and book kind of day...

It finally feels like autumn. About damn time. Normally I'd be knee deep in Christmas ornaments right about now, but since I didn't cook for Thanksgiving this year, and it's been such weird weather here in Texas, I just haven't gotten it into my head that it's almost the holidays. And I already have half the shopping done! I need to bake fudge or pumpkin bread or something to get in the mood...

This is riveting, I'm sure. So. Things to make the day better!

  • Everyone's read this by now, I'm sure, but I re-read it last night and laughed all over again. This person is so damn funny... (Hilarious review of Goblet of Fire - fanspeak. Oh, my GOD.)

  • Have learned that you can use YSI's download client for sendspace files!! This means that any big files that might crap out will get picked up where the DL broke. Wooot! (This makes me happy because my lovely, lovely cherusha sent me the eps for Ultraviolet and the last 2 files hosed out on me! Mmmmm. Jack Davenport meets X-Files and Vampire lore. YUM. (the DL client would be terrific for those of you on dial-up, trying to pull down large files! I use it regularly and love love love it.)

  • POLICE SQUAD!! Oh, Leslie Neilson. I heart you tunz, underline underline. How I loved that show. And now I want to watch Airplane! (streaming vid hosted on their website)

  • The New PoTC trailer!!! Potential beard!Norrington!

  • Justin Timberlake spoofing Ashton Kutcher on Punk'D. Hee hee! I don't want to HEAR IT ABOUT MY LOVE FOR JUSTIN, OKAY? Bring it on down to Omlette-ville! (again, streaming vid from the host's site)

  • Embarassing my husband when he thinks his mother is listening in by asking him if he took his Dr. Porkenheimer's Boner Juice. I can NOT imagine why my MiL disapproves of me...

  • Playing at a_list_celebs. We got our Matt-n-Ben (Damon and Affleck) to join, and MAN, if they aren't a riot. The first night they played at the new joint had all of us giddy with delight. SHUT IT. It's fun to play with hilarious people and I love them. *squeee!* There's a Celebrity Jeopardy thread up there that had everyone in top form. Our Johnny Depp is so damn funny... Just absolutely perfect.

If it continues to be nasty weather, I should have a new list of Gud Summres to post tomorrow. Hooray! Oh, and for any new people that come around? I am NOT a mean person. I am NOT making fun of specific authors. (And I don't like it when people do.) Those (and any bad!fic laughing that comes from this journal) are about laughing at ourselves. Okay, mostly you. No, not YOU, that person sulking behind you. Yeah, YOU. Come on. I've written crap. The very first fanfic I ever wrote had little barbies dressed like Spike and Buffy and was written SOLELY for feedback, so I'm lumped in there, too. But... if we can't make fun of people, what other yardstick can we measure our own awesomeness by? *cracks up* But come on! "Not a song-fic?" A story about Adam killing Maggie Walsh? THAT IS SO AWESOME! Okay. I go make chicken and rice soup now. Have a good day!!

(OH! Confidential to cherusha: I am STILL sighing over those clips from "Mary Bryant." My GOD Jack is so beautiful. *wibble and RAWR* Thank you for sending me those!!)

Hey, there's no link to the HP review. ::is bummed::

>>But... if we can't make fun of people, what other yardstick can we measure our own awesomeness by?

You so rock my world.

But why aren't you intimidated by me!?!? I really have to work on that. ::cracks whip::
Nov. 26th, 2005 11:03 am (UTC)
ACK! Fixed the case of the missing link! *points up*

And as to intimidation, that's because I haven't lain beneath you in your garters and bra while you crack that whip and order me about. Oooooh. I'll be intimidated then, Missy! Until then, don't you make me start a smut thread with you again! I won the last round, chicken. Hee!
Nov. 26th, 2005 10:16 pm (UTC)
Maybe I could come over when your husband is away and we could talk about it.
Nov. 27th, 2005 07:30 am (UTC)
*sniffs, fixes us both coffee and nods* Yeah... yeah I'd like tha-

*tenses when you rub small circles on my back*
*bites lip*
Nov. 27th, 2005 10:39 am (UTC)
::bites lip::

::no, your lip::
Nov. 27th, 2005 01:21 pm (UTC)
Am I gonna have to moan softly into your mouth? Then hook my fingertips in the front of your jeans to keep you close?

Hmm? Am I? Or would you prefer soft kisses behind your ear?

*waits patiently*
Nov. 27th, 2005 03:41 pm (UTC)

If we ever meet I'll have to talk to you through a neutral third party and/or yelling through the door a locked bathroom stall. Heh.
Nov. 27th, 2005 03:44 pm (UTC)
*takes up knitting*

If you weren't so damn sexy Posh! For god's sake, I'm only human! :-D

*wonders if you're going to Writercon...*
Nov. 26th, 2005 10:31 am (UTC)
More Gud Summres...halleujah! I spent a bit of Thanksgiving night reading your past lists and laughing until I cried. Read a few out loud to the spouse but had to stop because I couldn't breathe.

Also got a kick out of your LJ, in general.

Added you to my flist, if that's OK. My LJ is mostly a fic journal so apart from that crap, there's not much crap there. Sadly, I'm not anyone you've played with in other places before but don't hold it against me!

Nov. 26th, 2005 11:06 am (UTC)
Haha! Man, I'm still shaking my head at the dorkiness that is me. As to friending? If you wanna read the crud that goes on here, I have no problem! It's a "come and go as you please" type place, so if it gets a bit... much for you, knock me off with no worries. :-D
Nov. 26th, 2005 11:23 am (UTC)
public service
Those (and any bad!fic laughing that comes from this journal) are about laughing at ourselves.

I love the fic summaries you've discovered! sangueuk pointed me this way, and it's been absolutely riotous reading. And it's sure as hell made me more aware of the summaries for my own fics -- really, you're providing a very valuable public service by putting these 'cautionary tales' up for those of us who attempt to sum up our own fics in a way that at least avoids the ridiculous! ::grins::
Nov. 26th, 2005 01:23 pm (UTC)
Re: public service
Ha! Well, more and more people are succumbing to the cult of nice, or rather... the inability to call a spade a spade. So. I know there are those who think I'm a bitch for doing this because we should all hold hands and support everyone and love and braid kittens' tails or something. :-D

Ah, my Sanguelina. I send her thoughts of goodness for the pimp.

(And it's helping me re-evaluate many of mine, as well. Man, I had some BAD ones. And fair is fair - they're going up in the next batch.)

Re: public service

Just tell 'em you're channeling your inner Spike or Anya or Ethan or Cordelia or Giles or...hmmm, the more I think on it, the more it seems that pretty much everyone has a moment of telling it like it is without the bullshit! And thank god for that! How would any of us ever get any better as writers if no one ever pointed out to us the problems that we have? ::shakes head:: A sad day when we all take ourselves too seriously, I tell you.

I'm still firmly with the public-service assessment of what you're doing. Teaching with humour. ::winks:: It's all good! So I'll keep reading with (half-cringing) anticipation of seeing one of my own end up on the list -- right along with everyone else's, there are some of mine that certainly deserve it!!
Nov. 26th, 2005 03:38 pm (UTC)
Dude! I am almost finished my vid and am gonna send it to you soon (you promised to be my test subject :D). The compression process, however, is making me cry because I can never get it right and it messes up the images.
Nov. 26th, 2005 03:54 pm (UTC)
*bounces!!* Yes, yes! I will gladly watch and tell you how great it is. See how impartial I am?

OMG - the intarwebs are swimming in JackDav images today. Wheee!!
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:21 pm (UTC)
Whee! It is sent! sent to your email. *waits for your review*

Ooh, please don't hurt me. Or, you know, hurt me gently.
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:34 pm (UTC)

(Why would I *hurt* you! I would only tie you up a little.)
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:42 pm (UTC)
I forgot to tell you!

misful also did summaries for Revenge of the Sith and Prisoner of Azkaban. Go and laugh your head off! after the vid.
Nov. 26th, 2005 03:50 pm (UTC)
You must be a very angry person inside to want to mock people, stoney. Don't you know that we are all equal and precious - remember things should be taken incredibly seriously without a dash of humour in order to be pious and righteous, you dirty whore sinner you.

Leslie Neilson, Police Squad, Airplane, these are the things I completely and utterly adore. Yay!
Nov. 26th, 2005 03:56 pm (UTC)
Oh, man that link to Police Squad makes me laugh sooo hard. I need to see if that show is on DVD. He keeps going back to living with that guy. Then his son. Hahahaha!!!

I am angry. I am bitter and vile and horrid because I want greatness. Why the hell do you think my name is STONEY? I AM BEGGING TO BE STONED.

But not like you think. Or maybe... maybe just like you think.
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:08 pm (UTC)
I am so going to do the same - thanks for reminding me because I used to love that show.

Stoney, in three, two, one, bong time! And then you can make one out of a stone and people can throw them at you.

Remember, fandom is a deadly serious thing, so stop trying to find funny things in it. :( <- fandom
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:12 pm (UTC)

ZOMG, fanfiction is SO SERIOUS, and my FANFICTION will CHANGE THE WORLD, or be soooo good that James Marsters will CALL ME AT MY HOUSE and come over and tell me my zits are hot, and my cellulite is turning him on, and we will SLOW DANCE in my dorm room, and he'll sing "She's Like The Wind!"

And he will CRY with overwhelming LOVE FOR ME! And we'll get married and he'll have my babies and we'll be SO HAPPY and it's because of my VERY IMPORTANT FANFICTION!!! *criez*
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:21 pm (UTC)
*cries with laughter*


One day if I just love him enough in LJ he'll finally see me, shiny above all the others, because I've been loyal to him and loving, and he'll choos me and we'll meet and he'll look into my eyes and I'll talk to him all about Spike and how much of a bum deal he got and who I think Spike should have ended up with and why, and he'll be fascinated and drawn to me and he'll get down on his knees and make me the happiest LJer in the world. And then I'll totally post about it and get, like, a million comments! And everyone will be totally jealous cause I got the prize.
Nov. 26th, 2005 04:36 pm (UTC)
*elbows you out of the way* And he'll love ME because I make pictures of him as fantastical creatures that I would only kinda want to have sex with (Okay, I totally would fuck a Spike!Seahorse - but I'm not telling YOU that), and he'll see MY love is PURE and righteous and songs will be SUNG ABOUT US

And then he'll tell me secrets of him and David boning like weasels on set.

Nov. 26th, 2005 06:57 pm (UTC)
Hee heeee!!! *laughs at your icon* That quote is extra funny to me because of David Cross' (Tobias) stand up routine about "hipping up commercials." He goes into how they could make eggs cool: These ain't yo daddy's eggs! Muthafuckin' EGGS! Hahaha.

I STILL haven't pulled out my decorations, and I ALWAYS do that Thanksgiving night. WEIRD YEAR. I'll do it tomorrow while the fudge cools. Mmmm.

I think I've watched that Police Squad clip 10 times - that is a PERFECT example of excellent comedy. Goddamn, I loved that show. Oooh! Is it on Netflix?? *checks*
Nov. 26th, 2005 07:29 pm (UTC)

Weird, much too busy, and intermittantly upsetting weekend, v. behind on comments and answering comments in my own lj.

Your MIL just doesn't know a good thing when she has it. Maybe it's cumulative hairspray toxicity?

Julia, reality is not so fun as we need it to be
Nov. 27th, 2005 07:29 am (UTC)
Heee!! Oh, if my MiL USED hairpsray or makeup, I would agree with you, but she is a Feminist, and Wears Not a Stitch of Makeup and Prefers Trousers. (Can I get you another drink or would you like me to perform a service another way? *simper simper*)

She's a walking bag of contradictions. I don't even try anymore. :-D
Nov. 26th, 2005 08:12 pm (UTC)
My fave part of that review is the phrase "Shacka lacka swish!" and I NEED an icon of it and the pimp cane. liek whoa. so much that I'll probably end up making it myself.
Nov. 27th, 2005 07:25 am (UTC)
Oh, man I laughed out loud at that. PIMP CANE.

That might be one of the greatest icons EVAH.
(Deleted comment)
Nov. 27th, 2005 07:27 am (UTC)
Hmmm. I think Norrington's part will be about hte same, I honestly don't know. Since JackDav isn't a big name here in the states, he doesn't get billing like the others, so you can't TELL!! *whines*

I know he's in 2 and 3.... (And I STILL haven't been able to get the Ultraviolet eps to play! I'm just going to buy the DVDs today. Must. Have!!)

I'm so sorry you were feeling stress! *rubs your shoulders*
Nov. 27th, 2005 05:55 pm (UTC)
hey! the YIM thing worked! Of course now YIM doesn't work but I HAVE INTERNETS. *HUGS YOU LOTS*
Nov. 27th, 2005 06:00 pm (UTC)
HOORAY!!! You can go into your Explorer window, rename your YIM folder: 1YIM, and then reinstall the application.

(That forces a fresh install - relatively speaking)

Then start up YIM again. You should have the option with a new install to have the new version or the last version.

Hooray! *pokes you to check out some votes*
Nov. 27th, 2005 06:27 pm (UTC)
I r teh awesome.

also my icon had bettah work, consarnit.
Nov. 27th, 2005 06:34 pm (UTC)

Pimp Cane, whuwhu? Bettah rekanize, mah bitchez!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
