- So, on tumblr someone ([ profile] radon_?) made this awesome gif set of Stana Katic looking beautiful in black and white. I did a tiny bit of research and lo, it turns out that it's from this little movie she made called For Lovers Only. I look up the trailer on youtube, and oh my god. OH MY GOD. It looks magnificent.

No, seriously, watch this trailer. I'll wait.

Legit. All I want to do for the rest of my life is watch this trailer, because the music is gorgeous and the filming is gorgeous and Stana looks radiant and the couple being shown looks adorable and they're in France and it's beautiful and OH MY GOD I NEED THIS MOVIE IN MY LIFE.

Turned out that the trailer is legitimately better than the film. The movie is... not great. It's beautiful to watch! The music is great! Stana Katic is actually radiant! But the dialogue is pretty bad, the story makes me want to eat a knife (cheaters! WHY ARE AFFAIRS SEEN AS ROMANTIC, THEY ARE TERRIBLE.)

So, anyway, that was a big disappointment in my life.


- Dr Quinn and I are on a break while I watch Castle. Apparently I OD'd on her judginess. This isn't a lemon curd situation, though, so I will return to it!

- Went into Paris yesterday with the sole intention of getting pancakes at this American-style diner place, but the wait would've been forever and we were right by this little coffee shop/bakery we like, so Katie and I went there instead. We then walked across the river and Katie got a really expensive coat and then she came back here with me and spent the night and I'm always so delighted when people are equally dorky as me. I don't mean dorky in a 'I love BSG way' (which, :( that would be awesome) but like, we sat around last night listening to Christmas music, and Katie riverdanced in the middle of my room because SHE ACTUALLY CAN DO THAT and it was a lot of lame fun.

- I write stories about couples that are never going to exist outside fic because they're not canon and it makes me sad sometimes but usually is makes me happy. (The latest trend in my fic-life is writing Sam and a Six. That is just... the way of it. I was about to say 'IDEK' but I absolutely K- it's Sam and a Six. Win-win!) Also, [ profile] kag523 is sweet enough to let me take her characters and run off with them, so there's that.

- FIFTEEN DAYS TIL I GO HOME. ELEVEN DAYS TIL MELISSA GETS HERE. These are exciting things! I'm also delighted with how comfortable I am here now.

- I know I say this almost every post I make on my LJ but seriously, I have such nice friends here. Sometimes my roommates can be whatever (and sometimes they can be awesome, like when Vasti made sure I had a good Thanksgiving dinner) but the friends I've made here are awesome. And one of them works in an American-style bakery that serves chocolate cake. CHOCOLATE CAKE, GUYS. Legit, real cake. It's glorious.

- I had a dream two nights ago that this popular British store called New Look had a store in my mall at home, and I went there... with EJO and Mary McDonnell. Like, of course. So I'm walking around the store with them looking for the shoes I want, and the Ed and McD start talking to one of the salesgirls. Eventually they mention (?) that they're famous, and the girl doesn't believe them, so both EJO and Mary start saying, 'Madi, get on the internet on your phone and show her. You can work the internet." It was entirely bizarre. Last night the end part of my dream involved me watching an old fashion show and Tricia showed up, both in person to talk to me and on the catwalk in the fashion show (that was possibly recorded? dream what even) and then Physically Present!Tricia was talking to me about the gold dress Catwalk!Tricia was wearing, and how it was her favorite and she kept it and actually it had a quote on it about how God has a plan and I was thinking, of course she'd like that one, because, you know, Tricia is Red, natch.

- My paid LJ account got extended a few weeks after all the DDoS attacks, but unfortunately my icons did not (D:) and I saw no reason to pay for one and not the other (D:) so now I'm only able to use a random selection and it is KILLING ME. I really shouldn't buy another year of paid LJ because it's really not financially sound, but this icon thing is slaying me. DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND?!

Dear flist,

I've seen a lot of threats going on involving the whole twitter/LJ link thing that go something along the "I WILL KILL YOU WITH FIRE" route if anyone ever links anything ever. I'm not going to go that far- mostly because even if I was to threaten you all very specifically, I wouldn't actually do it because... I'm lazy and all talk. So let's just say that I respectfully ask that if you ever think something I say is so intensely witty that you cannot live without it on your twitter or fbook, just cnp it. I trust you guys to use good judgment. I can't imagine this actually happening, mostly because I am very rarely even a little witty, and also I'm pretty sure I turned the option off, but whatever.


In other news, Open House is as good if not better when watching it the second time, but I'm pretty sure that's because watching things with Tess make them exponentially better (ex: Kalifornia, BSG.) Also, while I'm not attending this year's D*C- sob!- I do get to go to DC as in the nation's capital and see Monica and Justin and hopefully find a bridesmaid dress! So it's going to be a good Labor Day anyway.

OMG, LJ added a reblog function.

Repost button: You can add a repost button that allows other users to share all or part of your entries on LiveJournal. Please note that you have to use the HTML editor to insert a repost button. This button is only intended for public entries (i.e., if your entry is marked friends-only and you add the repost button, the entry can be reposted publicly by others, although the original post will remain friends-only)

Mind blown.

I was going to say that the Galacticization of my LJ is now complete, but upon reflection, it's really the Cylonification that is complete. I've got toasters all over my header and now my mood theme is all Six/Gaiused out (<3 <3 <3) and basically if my LJ died it would just wake up in a resurrection tub somewhere. This pleases me immensely.

Since I requested and received a lovely Jack/Nadia fic from [ profile] yahtzee63:

The first ten people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing, in any fandom I am familiar with. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead.)

For the sake of joy, you guys.

And, a conversation between me and Hannah about how Nathan Fillion was Good Luck Chuck to Tricia Helfer. No one else will have these kind of discussions with me. )

UF lost to Auburn. I am so bitter I don't even want to talk about it.

However, my pain is dulled by my beautiful new layout, made for me by the delightful [ profile] thepodsquad. It's all Mia-tastic!
