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?!

Guys, Tricia shows up around 1:55 and then she dances to some Wii-game thing version of Britney Spears's 'Toxic' and it is fantastic. No, but seriously. I thought she was precious and delightful before (obviously) but this just adds so much.

My BFF Melissa is currently in France and therefore unable to watch Community, even though she wants to, so she's been getting her fix through youtube clips. While searching for clips to send her, I came across this. While it doesn't fully explore every reason Shirley is my favorite, it has a bunch of instances. If I was a nicer person, I'd like to be like Shirley.

(BTW I know it's not as cold here as it is like, everywhere else in the Northern hemisphere, but I've had the 'heat' on for the last two hours and it's only rendered this house slightly less frigid. I DO NOT WANT THE INSIDE OF MY HOUSE TO BE THE SAME TEMPERATURE AS IT IS OUTSIDE, STUCCO WALLS.)

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.

Last year, writing my silly BSG Christmas fic got me into the holiday mood, this year it's... Mele Kalikimaka? I'll take it.

So, I'm home by myself for a week while my parents are on a cruise, and while talking about what I should do while they're gone other than luxuriating in my aloneness as a good introvert should (and not panicking that I'm going to be raped and/or murdered like a person who has watched well over a hundred episodes of SVU) my mother suggested that I make myself a birthday cake. To eat all by myself. I was like, okay, in what scenario does that not sound pathetic and sad? (But it is kind of tempting to make a big awesome cake all for myself. Without eating it all myself. Because that'd be bad.)

New favorite video on youtube; also, tumblr gives me the best things.

So I took it upon myself to enlighten Tess as to how wonderful Maryann is on True Blood, mostly because I am a Michelle Forbes fangirl and Tess is pretty good at fangirling with me.

Me: [ profile] nicole_anell once said she wished Maryann had been the admiral of the Pegasus
Tess: LOL!
Me: and it would've been a different voyage for sure
Tess: they'd have been out of snacks way before they met Lee, though :-P
Me: absolutely
Me: more orgies.
Tess: LOL
Tess: and they thought Galactica was a party ship :-P
Me: ain't no party like a maryann party cause a maryann party is mandatory
Tess: LOL!
Me: although, LOL
Me: she would've bitchslapped Belzen
Tess: LOL!
Tess: nobody needed vipers

So, this youtube clip has three things I love: (1) the interviewing powerhouse that is Regis and Kelly, (2) Russell Brand and (3) LOVE. Russell Brand talks about falling in love and proposing and it is the cutest thing of all time, and also hilarious.

I don't know what about Katy Perry + Timbaland = ABBA for me, but listening to the If We Ever Meet Again chorus just makes me think it's ABBA. It's strange.

I wish I had more interesting things to post about, but my life is pretty dull right now. I'm back in Gainesville to work until my lease runs out, and while my job delights me regularly, I'm pretty sure it bores everyone else (my thoughts on work running something along these lines: I LOVE MY BABIES! KIDS ARE DARLING! HERE ARE SOME OF THEIR ANTICS! THEY ARE PRECIOUS AND PERFECT AND BTW I LOVE CHILDREN.) Other than that, I think I'm going to rewatch the early season of Bones, I'm rewatching BSG for my big "What Red Wore" retrospective- I am finding some interesting patterns!- and I love tumblr.
