Tech help?

Firefox updated a No Script yesterday, and now when I click a link in Gmail (and ONLY in gmail) it doesn't open in a new tab. I use tab mix plus and have no issues with links on other pages, just Gmail Anyone else having this problem? It's freaking irritating. (Note: I have selected in Options to open a new tab when clicking links.) Anyone else? Just me? Should I get that sand out of my vah jay jay and suck it up? My fingers have been trained to do one thing, and they can't do the other... FIXED! Not that anyone offered me help or advice. Where mah nerds at?? *checks secret pocket protector signalatormatron's batteries*

And because I hate whining online, here's a link to the Greenskeepers "It Puts The Lotion On Its Skin" which makes me laugh so hard. Nothing like a Silence of the Lambs musical. *whole heartedly approves* "I think I'll make myself a cap from your right buttocks cheek" Ahahaha. Ha. Ahem.

Oh, oh! I read some fics last night that TORE ME UP. So painful and wonderful. Under the cut as they have Deathly Hallow spoilers.
Spikendru linked to this yesterday and waaaaaaah. If you didn't like the ending Severus SNape had in DH, this will (most likely) please you to no end. So lovely. Even my husband approved and got all quiet and sentimental. googlebrat's End of the Line.

Um, note to self: do not read post DH twin fics for hours at a time, because your chest gets all ouchie and hurts from being sad. That said, these two fics are absolutely wonderful and heartbreaking and I can't recommend them enough.

Caesura by shadowenangel Fred's POV. :(

Okay, this one made me cry telling my husband about it, but it is so wonderful: George dealing with his grief in a series of "The Problem is..." questions. Oh, my heart. Severance by ciroccoj. Percy makes a lovely appearance in this.

Feel free to rec me anything good you've been reading in Jossverse, Sitcom-verse, HP, PotC... It's too hot to work in the garden, and so? I read. And I love my new default icon with the power of a thousand suns. ALMOST THE WEEKEND, PEOPLE! \o/

I wrote jossverse! You might like Marker; not the other one, that one's just silly.

Severance is awesome.

Hi, baby, how're you?
Jul. 26th, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
I know! I have you opened in a Tab RIGHT NOW! Oh, that Snape fic was just wonderful. (Gah to Fred sitting and waiting, oh my HEART.)

I R Fine! I need to have some breakfast, what is that all about? I do need someone to take these kids off my hands for a few days, Grandparents, I'm looking at you. *stir crazy*

did you see that I'm going to be in a movie with Nicholas Brendon? I noticed the lack of Xander squee from your quarter... *g*
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:01 pm (UTC)

Clearly I missed a post because I knew about the movie but NICKY?! No, I missed that! Omg. I am no officially Massively Jealous as opposed to just the Jealous I was of you before.

Also: eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:06 pm (UTC)
DUDE. 5 weeks from now. (I posted that riiiiight before Potterdammerung to be tricksy)

There will be pictures! And squee! And pictures! :D
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:17 pm (UTC)
This is so amazing. Really, really amazing. I am magnificently jealous of you, but kind of not too? I like that making movies/tv is partly a mystery to me. A little bit of ignorance can be your friend, at times :)

But still -- awesome. Upon awesome. The whole movie sounds awesome, as does your part which -- you, white-trash ugly? That's some serious make up!
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:09 pm (UTC)
Wait!!! When did you say it was Nicky? Last I read you said "someone". I... I... I... *flails*
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:14 pm (UTC)
The Friday before Potterdammerung began. :D

I. KNOW. The director has been trying to get him for months, but nothing was solid until last week. I have been sitting on that since summer began, OMG.

And he plays a suave head vamp!!!!!! Like, if the Master was pretty!!
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:15 pm (UTC)

He gets to be evil?

I -- seriously. So much yay. And butting in, but whatever, you'll still love me (right?) because Nicky as a dark, sexy, evil vampire is made of serious amounts of win.

It's like The Wish only more!
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:19 pm (UTC)
I KNOW!!!! And he's all sarcastic with the quips and the natty dressing and VAMPIRE.

Dude. This is going to be freaking awesome, even though it's a low budget film. I DUN KEER. \o/

(And awww to your other comment. Man, the chicks that showed up for auditions... Whoo. Hard looking. I'm excited to play a trashy whore! Ahahaha.)
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:18 pm (UTC)
You SNEAK! You can't do that! The Potter-pocalyse was brewing, LJ was a ghost town and you post about NICKY!?!

*has visions of Wish'verse Xander dancing around in her brain*

Jul. 26th, 2007 03:20 pm (UTC)
(I didn't want the freaks coming over! I mean, this is Xander.)

*taps head* I'm smart, yo. :D
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:23 pm (UTC)
I stand by my first statement: SNEAK!
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:14 pm (UTC)
See! I am not the only one who missed this!

I feel better now.

(homg nicky!)
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:11 pm (UTC)
That Snape fic? ::flails:: (And poor George. ::SNIFF::)

I'm going to have to save the Twins fics for after work because I foresee tears.
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:12 pm (UTC)
Wasn't that Snape fic wonderful?? And um... yeah. Wait until you can be in a safe and loving environment before reading the Twin fics. *would totally hold you and stroke your hair*
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:22 pm (UTC)
Oh. Oh. Oh. I just read "Severance" and oh, my heart is breaking for George.
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:26 pm (UTC)
I. KNOW. Is that not utterly gorgeous and painful?? *holds you*

Also, I miss you! I need to play catch up with you. I'm watching 30 Rock and it's making me think of you. :D
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:33 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha, 30 ROCK. I love that show. When does the first season come out on DVD? Man, August and September is going to be an embarrassment of riches, DVD-wise: The Office, FNL, Heroes (don't know if I'll buy it or not), uhm. . .some other shows I can't think of right now.

I played hooky Tuesday from work (shhhhhh) and I paid for it yesterday. HI PAPERWORK.

*zooms off to email you*
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:28 pm (UTC)
I actually let out a maniacal EEEEE!!! and wriggled in my chair at this: "And he plays a suave head vamp!!!!!! Like, if the Master was pretty!!"
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:29 pm (UTC)
Isn't that going to be AWESOME?! I'm very excited!
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:33 pm (UTC)
Gasp! You recced a Discworld crossover! You sneakily got me to read a Discworld fic!

All three of these broke my heart in one way or another, thanks a million. ;-) I haven't got anything new to rec for you, unless you want a sneak peek at the fics I've been writing for Blogathon, but I'm not sure you're all that fond of my stuff...
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:40 pm (UTC)
Link me up! I don't know a lot of your stuff, so hook me up, homie! :)
Jul. 26th, 2007 03:42 pm (UTC)
Haha. Okay...the incomplete Sirius/Andromeda (I started it dead in the middle, so it has neither proper beginning nor ending yet), or the one I wrote for Fod that just got back from being betaed by Kita yesterday? Other than that, it's weird crossovers or fandoms I don't think you're in.
Jul. 26th, 2007 06:02 pm (UTC)
Oh! I want to read that George fic, but I'm a little scared I won't be able to stop crying. *bookmarks for a more stable day*
Jul. 26th, 2007 06:08 pm (UTC)
DO NOT READ THAT FIC TODAY, MISS J. Today is NOT the day for you. (Another day? Absolutely. A must read.)

Ooooh, if you want something fun and happy-making, I wrote Hr/R two posts back? (No worries if you're not interested.)
Jul. 26th, 2007 06:13 pm (UTC)
I read it! D: I couldn't resist. It's a beautiful story, and I was more touched by Percy in it than I thought I could be. Awww! Bookmarked, and will read again later when I can think straight.

I have your fic open in a tab! I'm excited to read it, because I know it'll be fun and good. I do have this odd thing that I think Ron and Hermione didn't kiss until the Battle at Hogwarts (which is weird to me, but maybe I am a prude? A canon-tethered prude!), but I will happily think, "awesome AU possibilities!" and read soon!
Jul. 26th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC)
Wasn't the Percy cameo lovely? *sniffles* I swear, it broke me to pieces, that story.

And hahaha, Mr. S and I both thought that Hr and R had already been making out and that the kiss after the CoS and the armful of basilisk fangs was just their public outing. :D (He's a big Hr/R shipper, that Mr. S. Hee!)
Jul. 26th, 2007 06:22 pm (UTC)
Ha! In my reading Ron and Hermione truly had the slow burn courtship to end all slow burn courtships, which is kind of awesome in its own way.

I love that Mr. S. ships Hr/R! I mean, how can one *not*, because it is an awesome ship! Awwwww! The already-married bickering of Ron & Hermione throughout the books, their complementary personalities, and that he PICKED HER UP when they kissed (god, I am a sucker for that, among other kissing tropes), just... *applauds*
Jul. 26th, 2007 06:25 pm (UTC)
I have the biggest fictional crush on Ronald Weasley, it's not even funny. <3 <3 <3

They make me so happy in those books. *dreamy sigh*
Jul. 27th, 2007 01:16 am (UTC)
I've read all three of those, and you are right they are serious tear jerkers. Especially Caesura, I cried at work. Just beautiful. Nice recs!
Jul. 28th, 2007 07:42 pm (UTC)
um... hi. Thanks for the rec! ^_^;; Going to go read the other fics you linked.
Jul. 28th, 2007 07:49 pm (UTC)
I hope that was okay that I recced you - I probably should have asked first. I was just blown away by your wonderful story and wanted to get more people over there. :)
Jul. 29th, 2007 09:36 pm (UTC)
Not at all! I'm absolutely thrilled that you thought the fic was good enough to rec, and I know several people have gotten there from here. Thanks so much!

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
