I got stomach flu for Christmas. Yay me! At least it didn't hit until this morning so I got to eat julbord and drink glögg yesterday. Missed the turkey today though :(

I hope you're all having a great weekend, whether you celebrate Christmas or not!

* Morlocks: Why David Hewlett and Robert Picardo can't stop laughing - A spoilery interview with David and Robert. I've missed these two! Oh, and apparently David is going to twitter his way through the film when it airs on SyFy, so big YAY! for those of you who get to watch it on TV.

* I've been having these strange vertigo attacks all week. I feel fine, then the whole world tilts and whirls around for a second, and the next moment I'm fine again. I have no idea why but I suspect a combination of stress and some kind of ear infection thing that doesn't quite want to break out. Very annoying, especially as I never know beforehand when they'll hit.

* I had planned on writing so many fills for the [livejournal.com profile] hawaii_50_hc commentfic meme, but people keep filling my favourites before I can find the time to do it! Not that I'm complaining of course...

* I found out that University of Borås offers the librarian program I want to get into as a part time distance course. I've spent most of the week on their online application site with the cursor hovering over the 'send application' button. Haven't had the guts to actually click it yet, but I have until October 17:th.

* An interesting discussion I got dragged into earlier in the week:

What makes you ship a pairing?

Be it het, slash or femslash - what makes you sit up and decide that those two (or three or four or whatever) were made for each other? When you watch a show, is it important to you that there is a pairing for you to ship? How often do you ship canon pairings? If the writers break up your ship (canon or not) is that a show-ender for you? Do you enjoy watching a show more if you have a vested interest in a ship? For how many of your favourite shows do you have an OTP?

Come play with me!

Yesterday, I had a bit of a headache and stiff shoulders. This morning, I woke up with the worst wry neck of my life. When the simple motion of reaching for my cell phone to turn off the alarm made me cry (literally cry - that's how I know it's bad...) I had to realise that there would be no work for me today. Long story short, I've been forced to spend the entire day flat on my back because even thinking about moving made me hurt.

So with nothing else to do, I decided to watch the rest of Merlin season 3 that I haven't been able to work up the enthusiasm for before.

Spoilery spoilers for all of Merlin S3 )

(Neck is a little better now. I've got an appointment with my physical therapist tomorrow morning and he can hopefully sort it out.)

It's -14C, the skin on my legs is so dry it spontaneously splits apart and starts to bleed, and I fell on a patch of ice yesterday so both my hands and my right knee are killing me.

In other words, I'm in need of cheering up, so I hereby declare today Cute Animal Picture Friday.

Here's a baby sloth!

1. I'm alive. Sorry for dropping out of internet existence. In short - my joints hate me, and we've had a wasp invasion bad enough that you can expect a Deluxe edition of Stupid Customer of the Day soon.

1,25. So, so, so sorry for missing all those birthdays and not bearing gifts. Happy belated birthday wishes to [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison, [livejournal.com profile] anyanka_eg and [livejournal.com profile] winter_elf! I'll try to make it up to you.

1,5. I have a wrist brace and a bottle of anti-inflammatories and I'm not really supposed to do any typing for a while (yeah, good luck with that...) so I'm probably going to be verrrrry slow to respond to things. Please bear with me for a little bit.

2. Fandom.... Leverage: Could Hardison and Parker be any cuter? White Collar: Yay for Diana! Psych: Still awesome. Also, I went to see the A-team movie which was entertaining enough but also made me want to check out the tv-show. Not disappointed :) I think I have a new love.

Various kinkmeme ficlet claims... )

The 'woe is me, my life is so hard' department:

- I don't want to work today. I want to watch Leverage. Why is this day so looooong?
- The adapter to my laptop stopped working and I can't find the receipt. This frustrates me greatly.
- Someone in my building thought it was funny to turn off my dryer when I did my laundry. Now I have wet clothes hung up to dry all over the flat. The reason for why I use the damn dryer is because I do not have anywhere to hang wet clothes, damnit!

* I officially hate my [livejournal.com profile] holmes_big_bang story and I wish I could just stop writing it with good conscience.

* Is it just me or is Doctor Who getting kind of... yawn? The Weeping Angels scared me to death in Blink but somehow managed to be boring in The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone. Vampires in Venice was just plain bad. Terrible acting, terrible storytelling, terrible all the way through (I do like Rory though). Please let the next episode be awesome, because I want to keep my love for this show.

* Got another not-quite-cold that just refuses to become a real cold. So, tired and grumpy and freezing and not in the mood for anything at all.
zinnith: (Default)
* [livejournal.com profile] holmes_big_bang status report: 8k. Plot pretty much figured out. I have no illusions about the quality of the writing but hey, at least I'm writing! That's a good thing, right?

* I seem to be on a films-based-on-comic-books roll. Saw The Losers yesterday after mainlining the comics. The comic made more sense plot-wise than the film, but at least the film did not break my heart at the end. The characters are awesome in both comic and film. Cougar and Jensen and Aisha all own my heart.

* It's been a weird week, emotion-wise. I've been going around feeling guilty for no reason at all. I have nothing to feel guilty about! Even if I had, I would grab that feeling by the scruff of the neck and kick it out of the door, because my life? Guilt free zone! But to do that, I need to know the source of the guilt so I can just tell myself that it's really nothing to worry about in the long run. Whatever.

* The Mentalist is beginning to bore me. Castle still holds my interest. I cannot wait for Psych and Leverage to start up again.

* Aaaaaand I have watched Supernatural again. Spoilers up to 5x21 )

I feel the need to explain myself. You see, I had this awesome preview planned for my [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang story. There were going to be pictures and interviews and questions from the audience.

However, that was before I came down with a 101 degree fever and acute torticollis. Let us just say that I'm not thinking so goodly right now, and every attempt to move sends my neck into spasms of agony. Work has not been fun. (Long story short - it started two days ago. Mr Boss called in Massage Guy yesterday to fix it and I was relatively painfree for all of twenty-four hours before it hit again today. All I want to do right now is curl up and whimper softly in a corner somewhere.)

So I'm afraid you're going to have to settle for this slightly more lame but, I hope, still somewhat awesome movie-trailer style preview for Hooke's Law. (Coming soon to a screen near you...)

[livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang progress report: 40 130 words. I'm really not nice to John in this one. But I figure, if I had to spend all day yesterday with a migraine that made me throw up until long after there was anything left to throw up, why should he get off more easily?

Time to write some porn now, I think.

Oh, and why didn't anyone tell me how awesome Leverage is? I think I'm in love with Parker and I don't even find blondes all that hot...

1. New layout. I was bored with the old one. I'm not sure about this one either, but I'm graphically incompetent. (Anyone want to help me with a graphic? I offer fic in return!)

2. I have a cold. And it's snowing. Again. *growls*

3. Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx!

4. The local radio has a very informative program about some guy who's going to learn how to walk in high heels. Why? Apparently, people are still stupid.

4,5. Oh. It was because he's going to play John Travolta's role in Hairspray. That explains it. Still - why would anyone want to wear high heels? They hurt your feet!

5. Speaking of high heels - I rewatched Iron Man yesterday. Gwynneth Paltrow is hot.

5,5. Speaking of superhero movies - Watchmen doesn't premier until next Friday in Sweden. Why do I live in such an uncivilized, backwards little country? Sister #1 had no idea what I was talking about when I asked if she wanted to see it with me and then accused me of being queen of the geeks. Why do I have such an uncivilized, backwards little sister?

I have a few things to say today.

1. [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon has a friendship/flirting/thinking of you fest going on.

2. The MAFA:s (Merling/Arthur fic awards) are open for nominations.

3. Stupid!cat fails to understand that if he wants me to pet him, he needs to jump up into my lap. I will not bend over and lift his heavy ass.

4. I think I'm a little bit in love with Patrick Jane of The Mentalist. He's just the kind of infuriating tragic bastard that I tend to fall in love with. If I ever met him, I'd probably slap him though. Yes, I have an abysmal taste in men. 

5. I itch.

6. There is absolutely nothing on TV.

7. The trial against the Pirate Bay people begins today. I probably won't follow the spectacle but lots of luck to you, guys. (Nope, won't f-lock this. It's not illegal to support them, is it?) It's weird how they're going to spend all that money on an eternity long trial against people who share stuff on the internet, but you let guys who rape teenagers go free, the police call immigrants 'monkeys', and just this week a diabetic blind woman with both her legs amputated got a letter from the social insurance office promting her to get off her ass and get to work, only in more diplomatic terms. Real classy, Sweden!

8. Going for a walk now. Yay!

It's Joe Flanigan's 42:nd and he is now officially the answer to the big question about life, the universe and everything - many gratulations!

If I wasn't so tired and vomity and gross (damn you, stomach flu!) I'd put together a whole picspam. For now, I only have one little picture, because this is possibly my favourite Joe moment in the world.

Feel free to add your own!

Well, this is the day where us Swedes dress up in white, put candles in our hair and sing songs. I did not, because I've been in enough Lucia processions to last me a lifetime. Also, I'm drugged to the gills and easily distracted by shiny things like toothbrushes and cutlery, and every time I sit down, I fall asleep. Despite this, I've spent the day at IKEA with my parents. It was a very interesting experience. ("I'm gonna try that bed over there." "Okay, we'll wake you up when it's time to go home." )

I have aquired a lamp, a shower curtain rod, new curtains for my living room, a table cloth, kitchen scissors, an in/out tray for my mail, six glasses with elephants on them, and two green candles. I am now completely out of money. And Mum bought me a lovely carpet for my living room as an early Christmas gift. Yay for Mum! I also got a potted plant for my sisters, which looks like curly chives. (The plant, not my sisters.)

Now I'm waiting for Dad to give me a ride back to Borlänge where I will without doubt fall asleep again even though I should really really be writing instead. I feel like the lamest person on Earth right now. Anyway, my darling sisters have invited me to dinner tonight. I'll try to stay awake for that at least.

I really really hope I'm feeling better next week or Mr. and Mrs. Boss will think I'm completely pathetic. I was so exhausted after my physio session yesterday morning that I spent most of the afternoon resting on the sofa in the back room. (And Mr. Boss was so nervous that I'd faint again that every time I tried to get up, he ordered me back to the sofa. He even offered to drive me home. My bosses are the best.)

Anyway - what I really was going to write about is St. Lucy's day. I haven't done anything special this year, so I'll just link you to last year's Lucia post - In Which Rodney Wins the Nobel and there are Girls on Fire.

Bleh, I really babble when I'm drugged. Going back to work now, I promise!

ETA: Merlin tonight! OMG it will be epic and awesome and probably make me cry and we'll have to wait forever for next season, which, in itself is awesome because there will BE a next season and I should really stop talking now, but I don't know how, because MERLIN!

Shutting up now. Bye.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the McShep Awards nominations! You guys are the BEST! That mail was the best part of my Wednesday! So, huge thank you's and hugs to whoever nominated me, and huge gratulations to the other nominees.

(I actually spent most of the Wednesday in the ER with a slipped disc. Now I'm on pain meds that makes me fai.... um, pass out. I just scared my co-workers silly. Now they're watching me anxiously in case I drop to the floor again. Oh, the joy of drugs. I take no responsibility for my grammar at this point.)
zinnith: (physicsrodney)

I think that pretty much says it all. What will happen to my Rodney now? *sniff*
This better be a good season.

*hides in corner and sulks*

I want to find the owner of the car with the alarm that has been going off with regular intervals throughout the night and smash his/her face in with a sledgehammer.
zinnith: (Default)

I have wet dreams about setting my workplace on fire and watching it burn. Does that make me a bad person?

So, do you have any feel-good stories? You know, those fics you go back to over and over again when you need something that makes you smile? I don't mind a little angst, but I want there to be happy endings. Hugs and/or blowjobs would be a bonus.
