sunshine_queen: Tricia being fierce, as always. (Default)
- 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?!

Sooo, now I'm back in Gainesville, hiiiiii dorm room. No one else is here- it seems like my entire floor is empty, but I never talk to my neighbors anyway, so what do I know.

So now that I am alone, I'm gonna do some more pic spam. I love having pictures worth posting.

Because of my lack of internet in Paris, I have this huge, huge account of my trip all in one fell swoop. To summarize: I had a fabulous time.

ETA: Sorry about the weirdness of the paragraphs! And lack of accents!

So, I have an entire account of my trip to Paris, which I just returned to, but for now, I think this will suffice.

And we're off.

Today and tomorrow are the last days I can use this icon, how sad.

We had Christmas, and it was pretty nice, considering that Paris is the big present this year. I got sweaters and some pyjamas and some pretty earrings and money and lots of other nice things. Yay Christmas

I've been packing all day, so I've watched Runaway Bride, Erin Brockovich, Ocean's 11, and now Runaway Bride again. And I love Richard Gere and Julia Roberts together. They're adorable. And I'd never seen Erin Brockovich before, and I was so impressed. It was a really good movie. And what is Christmas Eve without a Julia Robertsathon?

I have a new appreciation for how Hannah feels, celebrating Christmas early. It's weird to know that tomorrow morning everyone who celebrates Christmas will be celebrating and I will... well. Be going to the airport so that I can go on what should be the best vacation of my life.


Anyway, merry Christmas to everyone that's celebrating, and... everyone else have a nice Monday.
