So I have two days left here before I go home, never to come back to this dorm. Of course I have THREE exams on Thursday, so have to use said two days in between to study. That means tonight was the best time to take care of what I could when it came to De-Me-ing the room. So basically I just raped my walls of all their awesomeness...This is my least favorite part when packing to head home for summer... :(


From Grand to Bland... )

The consolation is I get to go home and do my annual 'beginning of summer makeover' for the great masterpiece that is my room at home! XD

This weekend has been kinda uneventful and yet exhausting at the same time...and there's still several hours left to go in it! *snirk*


+ I never got around to posting my thoughts on Absolute Justice (which, of course, I watched). Friday night, right after it aired, several of us on Twitter headed into a chat and got caught up on good ol' fandom drama and fangirl ranting. This, of course, led to huge issues and I spent A LOT of yesterday dealing with the repercussions of the chat (amongst other past issues). So the 'thoughts' on Absolute Justice just were never gotten to. Here's a quick summary of what I thought: HOE-MG , FUCKING FANTASTIC. Shanks killed as Hawkman, Brent Stait blew me away as Dr. Fate. The music for the episode was AMAZING and I want it. I now have two new favorite super heroes - Hawkman, of course, and Green Arrow. I would continue to watch Smallville just for Justin Hartley. *nods*

-- As a sidenote to Absolute Justice talk, I about flipped my shit when it was finally put up on iTunes and was listed as 'season only'. A quick scramble over to Standard definition revealed it could be DLed individually there. *phew*

-- Another sidnote: TOTALLY and IMMEDIATELY saw the epic potential of Carter/Oliver slash while watching Absolute Justice. For seriously, if Shanks only realized the number of slashy tendency relationships he's inspired across fandoms! XD


+ Bummed about having to miss the Canucks game against the Panthers on Thursday. Tried long and hard to get all the pieces together to make it to that game, but it just wasn't in the cards I guess. *sigh* Guess my chance to see my favorite hockey team play will have to come later down the line.


+ Since I have such lovely minions, 'Desperate Escape' is being taped for me tonight (I don't get Lifetime Movie Network). So soon come, I'll finally be able to watch it (even if I already know the outcome)! I'm very excited. Now...when are we gonna hear more about Arctic Blast??? ;) (hey, he missed D*C to make that movie - I wanna see it!)


Think that's it for now. Have more studying to do for the two exams I have tomorrow, a bit of fic writing to be done, and modly stuff for [livejournal.com profile] shanks_lims  to take care of. *brings back that exhausting point again*

dannysgirlsg1: (Jack/Danny - Ball fun!)
It's been a little bit since I really jammed to this song...okay, so it was last week when I went to bed listening to music, but that is neither here nor there!


I figured I'd give a nice little 'So here's things' post...So here's things:


+ Guess the most prominent thing going on right now is we (the fellow roomies and I) are on the hunt for a place to live next year. We went looking around at apartments yesterday and today. Found two possible places off campus (one that's REEEEALLY NICE) and of course have Ragans considered into the equation. We've made a pro/con list of all the places and are going back to the two off-campus ones tomorrow to clear up some questions we have (and when I say off campus, I mean LITERALLY across the street from main campus - they are right off Tennessee street).


+ In big home news, we got a new puppy. Madre was telling me that he just showed up at the house. They took him to the vet to see if he had any identification (tattoo or chip, etc) because he had a collar but was very dirty. He wasn't tied to any particular owner, vet said. He figures someone just dumped him off. He's a 4-5 month pure black lab. So of course Smurf took to him instantly (good hunting dog and all) and named him Tucker (apparently he doesn't get the idea that it's kinda...weird reusing a name you already used for a pet...we've already had Tucker the kitteh). What's wrong is Smurf is playing favorites and completely ignoring Harley now...poor Harley. He always got more luvin' from me and Madre anyways.


+ Challenge 1 of Round 1 at [livejournal.com profile] shanks_lims  has kicked off!! Sign ups are open through the end of the first challenge, so you still have time to join! And even if you don't have the icon making skills or aren't quite up for ANOTHER lims, keep an eye on the comm anyways. Guarantee there will be much pretteh coming out of it! *nods*


+ Loving my French class! It's actually pretty easy to understand and I've been doing really well. Been acing all my assignments and I got a 94 on my first exam! *dances* I knew taking French would be a good idea - the fact that it's my favorite class this semester is saying a lot.


+ Trip to see the Canucks is pretty much a no go at this point. I don't have a set person to go with, and the dineros situation is even more dire. I am bummed, of course. But I need to, ya know, SURVIVE the rest of the semester so I can't just flit away money to watch hockey. Also, won't be getting my Kesler jersey in time if I did still go, so it kinda takes half the fun out of it.


+ If you haven't seen yet, all new promo for Absolute Justice HERE. We get full on Shanks in this one with speaking stuff and scruffy and HOE-MG I WANT THIS NOW!! A week and a half is TOO LONG!! (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] perpetuality1 for the heads up!)


Okie donkie, I think that covers everything right now. I was gonna mention how my loud twitter had stopped working since they had the system down, but it's finally posted again. So that's all straightened out!

Oh, the things I do to be a devoted fangirl.



Thank you, Michael. Thank you for getting me to watch a show I just...don't get the appeal of.



And yes, I HAVE given Supernatural a try...it just didn't speak to me the way it seems to speak to all of you. *shrugs*



I've said there's only one surefire way to get me to watch an episode of a show w/o question...and TPTB of SPN nailed it!



Also, just remembered I need to make sure I have a working tape to record Smallville in the next few weeks.

dannysgirlsg1: (Jimmy - Oh shit)
You see, I've started the preliminary work on my vid entry for ChiCon this year (after last year's fail of not having enough time to work on a new one, I'm giving myself a wide berth from the deadline)...


And I realize this is all just temporary stuff added to the hard drive and once I start working on a vid, I have a tendency to want to finish it (especially when it's a vid that's REALLY been speaking to me, like this one has). So the stuff on the hard drive shouldn't be there TOO long.


Still, I can't help but feel nervous loading Lord Danny up with all this stuff. I love Shanks, of course. But not enough that I want to crash my computer because of him. That being the case, I have to sacrifice some stuff I'd like to include in the vid...the stuff that would definitely get a laugh JUST for being what it is and for being in there.


*breathes* All that's let to get is 'Day of Judgement, Day of Wrath.'


Can't stop me from being nervous, though. O.o

I'm trying to make this trip to South Florida next month happen so I can see the Canucks play the Panthers, but I'm not sure I'm gonna be able to bring all the pieces together...


1. I need the fundage. Hockey game tickets aren't cheap.
2. Travel down there.
3. Someone to go with...I MAY have someone to go with (which would take care of transportation), but I doubt they'll be able to do it. Things rarely work in my favor when it comes to such things.
4. Hoping Trey will put me and whoever I might end up going with for the couple of days we'll be there. I'm sure he will, but you never know.



*sigh* I really want to go to this game. It would be my birthday trip. I just don't know how to make it work.

Just a few things:


- Madre made it through the surgery very well. Smurf called me this morning after she was out, and then I talked to her myself right after Meridian was over (and wow, I bawled so much watching it this time...idk why). She will be able to go home tomorrow at noon, and then Smurf will hit the road and be on his way to pick me up. Found out that Hook is coming with him to help ease up the burden of the long drive - JOY! All I can say is thank GODS for Remmie! *pets perfect little iPod of awesomepops*


- SYTYCD tonight COMPLETELY baffled me! HOW did they BOTH make it into the top 6?!?! There is NO way Ryan was better than Legacy. People who voted just bought into Ryan and Ashley's sympathy story and voted for them OVER the BETTER dancers! *breathes* Doesn't matter anyways - JAKOB will be winning it. When he dances, it's beauty and perfection all rolled into one. I have elected him to be my gay husband.


- HOME tomorrow...or rather, Friday. Which means it'll be cutting close for setting up the VCR for Sanctuary that night. As always...b/c I'm always rushing home for the holidays/breaks to watch some something or other that is premiering that Shanks is in. Over the summer, it was Living Out Loud. Last christmas break, it was Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon. *snirk*


Alrighty, that's all I've got for now. Today has been pretty uneventful - surprising for finals week.

So, here's things:


- FINISHED my assignment for the [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange . I am VERY happy about this for a couple reasons. First is I like what I did with the assignment I received. Not that I HAVEN'T liked my past assignments, but considering how I went in expecting to do one prompt and randomly did another is...weirdly satisfactory. The second is because it's DONE, out of the way, ready to be posted when posting opens. Means I can focus on these damn holiday cards!


~ My TV died (meaning the dorm room TV, not the home TV. THAT would be epic!tragedy!). I turned it on this morning JUST to see what Gilmore Girls ep was ending (so I knew which would be on later), and it kinda spazzed out (sound wise - no picture ever came on the screen) and then just...stayed off. I tried unplugging and replugging it. Nothing. The thing is ded. D-E-D, ded. The good news is we have a spare tv at home that I can bring back after Christmas break (if Smurf can't fix it), and thankfully this TV (now dubbed 'Kawalsky' by a loyal Twitter follower) decided to kick it two days before I go home. Also, isn't nice to know i can have a pretty decent sense of humor about it:






- The one thing I REALLY wanted for X-mika (a Canucks home jersey, customized with Kesler's name)?? I'm going to be getting it AFTER all. With Madre's surgery (which is tomorrow, at 7 am...JOY! *sigh*), it didn't seem like we'd have much of a X-mika. And I know it's not about the presents...it's never BEEN about that. Still I know Madre felt bad about not getting me what I wanted (of TWO things, the other being the Farscape boxset). But, we've come into some money and Madre has informed me my jersey, whether it's in time for X-mika or not, will be the first this she gets with this money. THIS is why I love my mommy. She really is the bestest!


- Found THIS watching Under the Mistletoe Sunday evening, and I was greatly pleased:

Cutted for size... )

Alrighty, I think that's it for tonight. I volunteered to polish off the last of the undisclosed beverage drink in the freezer, so the world is a bit spinny right now and brain is a bit mucked up. ;)


~Pip


P.S. - With all this L4D gameplay (all Kilplix and friends at this point) I've been watching lately and seeing how tied in these guys are to specific characters, I have to wonder - What character does Shanks like to play most?? Does he have a preference (and I'm assuming he would)...it's something to ponder, I think. *shrugs*
