My boo [ profile] miabicicletta tagged me on this meme so now I must do it!

It's the meme that's going around! )

Oh hey y'all! Since I last posted, all kinds of awesome things have happened, and not just ones I've watched on Dr Quinn (though that woman does more stuff than any one person should.) I went to England to visit Melissa and had the greatest of all possible trips. The town where she's studying, Canterbury, is precious and adorable and full of all kinds of awesome stuff. We went to London for a day and it was ridiculously amazing. We went to this little seaside town too called Whitstable, and it was also charming. Best of all, I got to see Missa, who I have not seen since JULY.

In other important news, while we were together, we talked about whether or not we really wanted to stay in Europe over winter break as originally planned, and realized we totally didn't, and we found flights mostly together (the important, long, trans-Atlantic ones are together both ways) and so now I am going home on December 19th and I am so very excited it makes me giddy to think about it.

Also: I GOT PAID. I got paid, to my bank account, in euros, and now I am no longer just putting everything on my credit card! It is such an incredible feeling, even if in Europe they don't like you using your debit card the way you do in the US. (Damn you, cash!) This means that today I was able to go purchase a Navigo pass for the entire month, so now I won't have to grimace and groan every time I go into Paris! In other personal growth news, I went grocery shopping yesterday and not a single tear was shed. This is great progress.

The Mexican assistant has been a lot nicer to me lately, which is great, but I totally confused her by telling her I didn't want to go out tonight. I can't help that when it gets dark (which it almost is already and it's not even six yet) I totally feel like it's time to go home and batten down the hatches! I also can't help that I don't really care about celebrating Halloween now that I can't trick or treat.


In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door'.

Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and I'll give you a treat. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

I know. I answered officially none of the prompts y'all gave me, and that is because I'm spending my entire life either (a) freaking out about going to France, (b) preparing while freaking out about going to France, and that's about the extent of it. I'm getting no joy out of this whatsoever. (I may actually try to deal with some of my anxiety by posting, but I really don't like to have extensive records of my crazy, and also I am fully aware of how ridiculous I sound with my first world white girl problems, and also I don't want to bore you all, and trust me, my issues aren't even fun to mock. They're that boring.)

So I thought, I will do the same meme that everyone else is doing! This will be fun!

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

First things first: D*C POST IS COMING. Legit. I do want to write one, I'm just terrible at doing things. If you can't wait that long, I highly recommend what [ profile] nicole_anell has up- she actually remembers details from panels, it turns out, and is already more detailed than my entire post will be. (I think my post will wind up being like, a list of things I loved, some pics, and some gifs illustrating how I felt at any given moment.)

Secondly: I have a date of departure! On September 29th I will be flying off to France. This knowledge essentially wants to make me throw up. Like, I know that this is the epitome of #firstworldproblems, and I fully acknowledge how ridiculous I am being, because I keep crying about it like people are sending me to a penal colony in the 1800s. THIS IS NOT A PUNISHMENT, SELF. YOU'VE WANTED THIS FOR YEARS. (I did this exact thing before I went away to school, so I know that I am capable of overcoming my absurd emotions, but for right now, it is highly unpleasant. When buying plane tickets makes your entire body numb with terror, you are unhinged. Take note.)

Thirdly: I did so well with the last fic meme (ALMOST 6000 WORDS IN TWO DAYS, WHO EVEN WAS I?!) I would like to try another! Taken from [ profile] geekbynight:

Pick one of my icons and I'll write you a ficlet based on said icon. If you choose a stock/text only icon, feel free to choose a fandom or characters you think I might know.

I want to do a D*C post but it's like I can't even wrap my brain around the amazing weekend I had so it's still all settling in my mind. I will tease you with this: the highlight of my weekend was Tricia Helfer, model extraordinaire and quite literally the most beautiful woman on the planet, told me I was pretty.

Instead, I am shamelessly stealing this from [ profile] ivanolix

1) Give me a pairing.
2) Give me an AU setting.
3) I will write you a three-sentence fic (it may end up longer...)

The lovely [ profile] leiascully asked me questions for the COME AT ME, BRO meme, which goes like this: you say "COME AT ME, BRO" in comments, and I will ask you five! She asked me some really hard ones, too.

As if I could choose America's Next Top Cylon! )

Alright, kids, I'm trying to get some more activity up here in this LJ, and what better way to do this than a meme? Everyone likes memes. And I'm totally sure everyone wants to know my opinions on characters, because, really, who wouldn't want to know my opinion on characters? I'm fabulous.

Name me a character! I will tell you:
* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.

Continuining in my fabulousity, I am saying it here so that it will get done, or else I will chicken out: tomorrow I am filming my minute-long thing to submit to the Acting Outlaws. Yes, this does involve me filming myself talking and then sending it to them to possibly use on their DVD. Yes, this does make me want to throw up. Yes, I do feel like I might look crazy BUT IT IS A CHANCE I HAVE TO TAKE.

[ profile] bsg_epics is, as its name suggests, epic. I am totally enjoying it- it's made me write a drabble and create fanon for three characters I don't think about much (Tom Zarek, Cally and Bill- I MEAN I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT BILL BEYOND BEING LEE'S DAD AND LAURA'S SUGAR DADDY) and actually write down the fanon I have for my boo Natalie. .

Also, the lovely [ profile] nicole_anell did this meme, and (1) I am a big old copycat and (2) an icon whore, so, here goes!

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of Icon Squee!

Icons, glorious icons )

Viciously jacked from [ profile] dollsome!

When you see this on your friends list, make a post, with a music video (or song, whatever works) that used to be your go to jam back in the day. The terms are relative and it's up to you, but keep spreading it around or you'll end up with wrinkles on your memories.

If you think I am ashamed of this, you don't know me very well. I loved this song so much that when I was little, distant relatives of mine called me Macarena. I still love this song without shame.
