Mini-updates!

(I like Tumblr + Twitter far too much.)

♥ I am currently losing sleep due to the splendour of the Karen Gillan tag on Tumblr. Karen, Karen, Karen! ♥

♥ & I felt like reviving this meme, because I've been listening to them nonstop for the past couple of weeks. & I did it on Tumblr as well & should probably let the love spill out over here as well. Chameleon Circuit are fucking amazing & I love them as much as any of my other favourite artists. They're just brilliant & adorable & so surpremely talented.

O, & everyone should go & look up their song Silence And The End Of All Things - a beautiful song for Amy & Eleven at the end of The Big Bang Two. I've had it on repeat for three days now & it makes me teary-eyed every.single.fucking.time. within the first minute of it. As soon as I hear 'when you wake up, you'll have a mum and dad, but I'll be just a story/that's okay/we're all just stories in the end/so live well and love rory', my eyes just fill with tears. It can be very problematic when one is listening to it on the bus, but that's what waterproof eye makeup & (stolen) designer sunglasses are for.

Answer the following questions using only the song titles of a chosen band.

I chose Chameleon Circuit.

1. Are you male or female? Kiss The Girl
2. Describe yourself. Teenage Rebel
3. What do people feel when they’re around you? The Sound of Drums
4. How would you describe your previous relationship? Silence And The End of All Things
5. Describe your current relationship. Type 40
6. Where would you want to be now? Gallifreyan History 101
7. How do you feel about love? Mr. Pond
8. What’s your life like? Nightmares
9. What would you ask for if you had only one wish? Travelling Man
10. Say something wise. Exterminate, Regenerate

Two & five were actually a lot harder than you'd think. I settled on my answer for five because I'm quite sure my laptop & I have a Doctor/TARDIS bond at times. & because the love of a TARDIS = better than any other kind of love. & I settled on Teenage Rebel for two because I'm just eternally seventeen at heart. & I was a girl when I learnt how to run. So there.

(& as for three . . . well, I probably scare people. & everyone who meets me probably thinks I'm straight-up mental & not in the good way. Too bad I'll never be as BAMF as the Master is. Ah, well.)

♥ I picked out my lesson books today & am going back later in the day to pay for them properly since I needed the barbarian's ident card. It's getting closer & closer, my return to lessons & to having to learn to (mildly) resocialise with people. It's making me feel stressy & slightly ill.

♥ Visiting my favourite uncle & his family for karaoke tonight! ::bounces:: I love karaoke, you know - it's my biggest guilty pleasure! As a former stage actress, I absolutely adore it, even if I can't sing.


. . . & the times we would have had now never had inside that box of bluest blue . . .

We're not going to talk about how this happened, we're just going to do it!

Leave a comment with five things for me to talk about picspam! Also, if you want five things, comment here for five things of your own to picspam.

I'm dithering about whether I want to watch Young Justice. There's bound to be Kid Flash & Arrowfamily shenanigans, both of which I love, but I don't know. Hmm. I still need to catch up on Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, so maybe I'll wait. I know [livejournal.com profile] thiscanbegin is still thinking about it, but do I have anyone else planning to watch it?

. . . Also I happen to be sitting here & oddly panicking at the idea that I have, in fact, completely forgotten how to be fannish/write a damn entry. I really have been away too long, Christ. How do I forget things like this, seriously?

I did, however, just come across a somewhat obscene amount of NA/PDAs while on my search for Verdigris, AKA The Only Iris Wildthyme Novel I Have Yet To Read. Of course, that amount doesn't even approach the quantity of Flash/Green Arrow/Zatanna comics I'm working my way through. Or the JLA ones. WHATEVER. I'LL MAKE TIME FOR EVERYTHING AS I ALWAYS DO. But the Flash/Green Arrow/Zatanna comics come first. FISHNETS & GINGERS O YAY! & that other guy.

. . . My birthday's next week. Well, next Sunday specifically, which is today now. So my birthday's today next week.

I'll be twenty-two. Twenty-two is never anything special, of course, I know that, but that's not why it matters. It matters because it's my birthday I suppose & it still depresses me. Birthdays always do, & probably always will. I don't even know what I want for my gifts any more.

(well, some of them you can't really buy. Unless they sell pretty gingers with green eyes & nice laughs. Or pretty, slightly too-thin British blokes who like to snuggle fully dressed, then sneak out & return with a tall cappuccino for me in the morning.)

The barbarian's birthday is next week too, on the third. I gave her an imp of Black Phoenix Alchemy's Zephyr: A gentle white scent, breezes laced with the scent of springtime blooms and citrus. Lemon, lemon verbena, neroli, white musk, white florals, white sandalwood, China musk, bergamot and a drop of vanilla. She's saving it to wear for our joint birthday dinner. I hope she likes it. She does already, but I hope she likes it even more when she actually wears it. (My BPAL birthday gifts were full bottles of The Lady of Shalott, Ultraviolet & The Phantom Wooer, all of which are some of my absolute favourites.)

Did a bit of LJ cleaning recently, mostly in the form of community decluttering & a small friends-cut. I could have cut more, I suppose, but I'm too nice for really big ones I think. Now I'm trying to decide if I should change my layout. I like the poppies, but I found a v. pretty pink & white dotted one that I like.

Also, I hate tags. Just saying. Tags are like a huge ball of knotted yarn, ugh.

Two-post deals for memes & actual life things from now on. ♥ That way, everything gets noticed!

& now, another meme! This time from [livejournal.com profile] vega_ofthe_lyre & I heart this one.

- Reply to this post with the words "BY THE HAMMER OF THOR" and I will pick six of your icons.
- Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.


snip.snip. )

& I somehow have roughly three thousand words of drunken Mason/Daisy which I'm not sure is going to evolve into something very smutty, or something vaguely clean, but heavy on the depressing things. I'm amazed I even have three thousand words of something I can ponder the direction of, really. But it happened & I'm all, 'WAAAAAA' at how sad this seems to be getting. (I think I feel somewhat guilty at hurting Mason in this.)

Also, I like most of what I have so far. & I've only written them being drunk & sitting in his room. WTF I AM NOT SUPPOSED TO LIKE THE DRECK I WRITE WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.

I foresee this as getting a bit on the lengthy side, honestly.

& in other news, I got to see some of Sherlock tonight. This version of Sherlock is a serious BAMF & I fucking love him. ♥__♥ & his Watson is like a badass little elf - so cute & adorable, but you know he could cut you without hesitation. Or shoot you, as the case may be. But can I just say that Martin Freeman looks a fuck of a lot like John Simm? In dark lighting & if you didn't know one of them too well, you'd think they were either brothers or the same bloke. & they both have a little woodland creature thing going on - they look like bunny rabbits!

Also, MARK GATISS. FUCK YEAH. Along with SHERLOCK/JOHN, FUCK YEAH! But he's allowed to meet & sleep with Tess Mercer, 'cause she's as much of an HBIC as he is a BAMF. Together, they'd blow up the world. Or at least Metropolis.

I sense a two-post deal coming up.

But first up, a meme from [livejournal.com profile] nentari!

Comment with ORANGE KNICKERS and I'll give you five questions to satisfy my curiosity. Go post the answers on your journal with these instructions and spread the madness!

(I'll warn you now; my questions will be dull & most likely quite shallow. I never like to ask too deeply probing questions - it's not very ladylike.)

Who do you ship me with? meme

Also, what the fuck. I'm twenty-one years old - 'fussy' & 'tired' are not the words I should be feeling like using to describe my mood.

abandon hope all who enter here

Elizabeth (Betsy). Twenty-two, almost twenty-three, but perpetually seventeen. Whirls back & forth between vulgarity & delicacies like a dervish proper & has been known to disappear for months on end. Worshipper of Carroll, devotee of Lovecraft & BPAL hoarder absolute. Destined for the madhouse.
