Oh, Cherry Limeade, cure me of my ills

Headache going strong for two days now, what the hell? I would love to post pics of what's happening in the pool arena, but we were deluged by rain - 1.5 inches in 30 minutes - and I literally got stuck in the mud and had to abandon my shoes. Oh, flippy floppies, you will be missed. Until the ground dries out and I dig you out and hose you off. All of the electrical stuff was done, so now all that's left is plaster, the shade structure (we're building that this weekend, I think?) and deck. I totally bought pool noodles today in anticipation. ALMOST HERE, PRECIOUS! (And this relates to the pictures not one whit, I just have a headache and am being obstinate.)

In the meantime, my favorite local garden center sent me a 30% off one item coupon good for today only, so I went ahead and bought that weeping atlas cedar I mentioned yesterday. YAY! [I think I like the way this is shaped the best. Feel free to make suggestions.] The garden center only gets two a year, and I got one of them. So it's going to sit on my front porch and wait to be planted in a few weeks, because I was not going to leave things to chance. Screw chance, he made fun of me in high school. (True story, there was a kid named Chance who came over to hang out and drink beer and play poker with my bio-mom - good people, that woman *eyeroll* - and he and my mother coined my high school nickname, "Adopted." Because, you see, I wasn't entertaining and awesome like my other sisters and my mother. OKAY THEN.

...I might still be a little bitter. Whatever, he had an almost albino tight fro, and that look ain't working. I think he has a gambling addiction now, too. In your face, jerk! (LOL, I'm horrible inside, huh?)

Where was I? Oh, right, about to tell you that I spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at a tumbler account that specifically is about Alexander Ska-circle-rsga-circle-rd. :) And it reminds me of how disgusted I am by the BEEEEL/Sookeh pairing and am ready for that to be over. UGH. Those two gross me out, and a lot of it is because they're real life partners.

Because I'm a total flake by this point in the day (guys, if you want coherency, I have to post in the AM with my coffee) I also want to mention that I'm still sucking down Criminal Minds and would love a rec for some really excellent gen fic that explores the team's dynamic. No shippy stuff, unless you think it's just so well written I can't pass it up. Anyone? And I would really like to have some quiet time to try my hand at writing a fic from Reid's POV trying to fit the pieces of everyone into his logic center.

And now I lie down with my cherry limeade. Oh, Sonic with your happy hour. You live up to that claim. :)

I AM STILL WAITING FOR THOSE PICTURES DAMMIT.

I watched the most terrible movie of all time to get my daily Tom Hardy fix, dude. It was tragic.

There are no words for the deep sense of self loathing I felt after subjecting myself to that film. PURELY TO FEED MY FEVERED LUSTS, KASSIE.

FUCKING TOM HARDY. WHY YOU DO THIS.

THOSE PICTURES ARE TOO HOT FOR THE INTERNETS. Unless there's a registered account with a credit card.

WHY WOULD YOU DO THA- Wait, I've watched that horrible "vampire" movie with Jude Law where he shits out nails just to see him mostly naked.

I had to look it up, I had blocked it from memory. The US title is "The Wisdom of Crocodiles." I think a lot of people loved it, but I was bugged by Jude's "I'm pooping - I'M POOPING!" face, not to mention the total "HUH?" plotline. Jude's face while getting the "crystal nails" or whatever they are is not unlike Edward Cullen's constipation love gaze.

LMAO! "the total 'HUH?'" plotline" is spot on. I was so confused.

The cedar is beautiful, and cherry limeade is lovely.

Most of what I write is slash or het, but these are all gen:
Old Acquaintances -- Only if you've gotten into season 3-5. It's Gen, but a two hander of Reid and Gideon in the current season.

What We Learn From Others -- late season 3 early-season 4 knowledge assumed.

Smoking Gun -- post The Big Game/Revelations fic with the team and Reid.

Key Words -- Gideon character study

Five Decisions Aaron Hotchner Made -- Hotch Character Study

Golden Seams -- Haley and her decision in season 3

Perchance to Dream -- Team study through episode "100"

At bau_fic there's a gen tag. I recommend bibliothekara and kyrdwyn, but there are many others in many styles. We'd love to have you among us. *G* And I'm always willing to beta.

In your face garden centre customers and bad hair sporting gambling addicts!

BEEEEEEL and SOOKEH 4 EVzzzzzzz. Sorry, I fell into a coma before I could finish. I just figure it's like wading through the whole Buffy/Angel stuff, except Buffy had cooler super powers and DB was much better eye candy.

Stop having a headache!
stoney321
Aug. 18th, 2010 11:19 pm (UTC)
DB IS MUCH BETTER EYE CANDY. Stephen Moyer is... not attractive on that show. Egads. He was handsome in the other vampire series he did in the 90s, Ultraviolet, but the way they have his makeup and hair in this? GROSS.

I WILL, GOD. You are not the boss of me!
dovil
Aug. 18th, 2010 11:49 pm (UTC)
He was in Ultraviolet? Huh, I liked that show. Stephen Moyer has so much white face paint plasted on all he needs to do is get a black and white stripped shirt which will fit in with his miming what a rescue attempt would look like if anyone was actually successfully rescued.

I am totally the boss of you. Now stop picking your nose.
stoney321
Aug. 18th, 2010 11:55 pm (UTC)
He was! I liked the show, too. He's the BFF of Jack Davenport on that show (that turns.) It looks like they smash his face in bread flour, the white makeup is so bad. Either that or he REALLY needs to learn about lotion.

HOW IS THI- I DID STOP PICKING MY NOSE! You are powerful, you are clearly a witch.

I have not posted this pic of the cover of Rolling Stone to give you ample warning in case you haven't seen it: sit down with your cherry limeade then clickee. Beware of blood and naked bodies and dubious taste:

The limeade did not cure the headache, but it made my mouth happy. The ibuprofen is working on the headache. IF THAT FAILS, HOLA, SENOR TEQUILA. TU ERES MI CORAZON. ;D

I like this plan! I'll get out a delicate pastry brush to preserve the fossil in situ.

Isn't that tree pretty? I can't wait to get going on my landscape even though it's a million fifty degrees out. (The advil is kicking my headache in the nut sack, so that's good.)

I was literally just yesterday bemoaning my area's ridiculous lack of Sonic because I wanted a 44oz happy hour diet cherry limeade. Thank you for mocking my pain with your flaunting of Sonic happy hour goodness.

But since you have a headache, I will be magnanimous and let it slide.

p.s. Icon love!

"Criminal Minds!" ♥ ♥ ♥ How far are you into it? I'm actually about a season behind now, because "Life" took over my existence. (Didja ever watch that? It died an early death on NBC at the end of its second season two years ago, and I still weep for the loss. ...and, er, kind of wish someone would write a crossover between it and "Criminal Minds," actually. Why is there no Fanfic Santa I can write a letter to? ::sigh:: I swear, it's pointless being good every year. ;-))

I don't actually know where any genfic lives for "CM"- it's a fandom where they really like to go, "You know who needs to sleep with everyone else in the history of this show, and a few others besides? Reid." But I shall ask La BFF, neuroticsquid? She is my fanfic hound- she lives in the fandom, carefully toiling through newsletters and communities and kinkmemes to find the good stuff, and then she scrapes it off and gives it to me. ;-)

Outta curiosity- Hotch/Elle, y/n?

ETA: ::facepalms:: Oh, right. I wrote "CM" gen.

we would all be fools to pray for justice (Elle fic, spoilers LIEK WOAH for the end of S1/beginning of S2.)

I'm watching the eps as they air on the ION channel, so I'm missing big chunks. And OF COURSE fandom wants everyone to bone Reid, they all self-identify, lol!

Hotch/Elle - nooooooooo! He's married and stoic! (Which, I'm sure, is the appeal. Hee!)
darlas_mom
Aug. 19th, 2010 02:57 am (UTC)
LOL. OMG, you're right, I totally never realized that!

Are you opposed to watching TV online in, er, shady-ish circumstances? 'Cause I can hook you up with the eps in their proper order.

...I cannot explain the appeal without spoiling you if you haven't seen the eps in question. Gah! (Actually, though, I am the only Hotch/Elle 'shipper in the WORLD. In "CM" fandom, Hotch het is considered blasphemy. To the point where I actually want to make a community specifically for it, just to thumb my nose at them all.

I R 12 2DAY, STONEY.)

Sorry to hear about your headache. Feel better soon.

I had Sonic for the first time last year as we didn't have any in the NE. Those cherry limeades are SO GOOD.

NOT A DROP. We are PARCHED.

Seriously, I'm ready for winter. NOW.

eta - I kept watching the radar on weatherunderground.com and watched the squalls come down towards us from the north, PART, and go AROUND us. Like there was a freaking DOME over Coppell!

I just warned my scroll button. I'll send you the bills for repetitive stress injuries on my middle finger.

At least I'm not a football traitor. I don't root for the Eagles, or the Cowboys, or...anyone!

Or any sport. The Olympics are the one time I venture into sports, and they have a disproportionate number of athletes (male and female) in skimpy or clinging uniforms.

Sonic. SONIC. How do people live without Sonic??

True story: I cannot pronounce Alexander Skarsgard's name properly and have so far called him Alexander Scotchgard, Alexander Swiss Chard and Alexander Jean Luc Picard. I hope I never meet him.

Aug. 19th, 2010 01:40 pm (UTC)
VINNIE, I JUST DO NOT KNOW. I guess somehow people survive without Sonic, Sephora, and chipotle, but I just don't know HOW.

Guard the scar, Vin, guard the scar. Now flip that shit and reverse it (it's your fremme nimma when's yet. Lol.) SCAR'S GUARD.

I hope you don't either, because I would have to cut you and you're very pretty and it would be a shame.

ASKARS FOR THE WIN. I haven't been this obsessed with a celebrity since... god, IDEK.

Actually, the fact that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are a couple in RL is the only thing that stops me from fast-forwarding Bill/Sookie scenes. I think to myself, "aw, it must be nice making out with your fiancé for money." And I try to remind myself how awesome Moyer is in real life. Too bad they fucked him up so much on the show. What is up with his hair? Seriously.

BY THE WAY YOUR TUMBLR IS MY FAVORITE. You're on my google reader, so I wake up with all of your lovely posts every day. <3

See, and I feel incredibly icky - like a peeping tom - watching their scenes BECAUSE of it. I am completely aware of APaq and SMoyer, not Sookeh and BEEEL. And oh, his HAIR. It's grotendous.

Guuuuh its like we live in a vortex down here! Rain has been in the forecast but NOT ONE DROP has fallen yet. ITS HOT!!! *dies*

*comes back to life* Have you tried using Mentholatum for your headaches? I rub some on key areas of my face and it WORKS!

About Bill/Sookie. I admit I like them BUT I was hoping they would stay apart so that Bill and Jessica could work on their relationship as maker/progeny. That's what I want to see!

Man, we got DRENCHED. Which is great because my garden has had NO SPRINKLER SYSTEM for three weeks now. Yow.

Mentholatum, huh? No, I've never tried that, I'll have to give it a whirl, thanks!

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.
