While I was home, I kept composing posts in my head and I may eventually post some of those, but for now, that fandom year in review post that was going around, ganked from [personal profile] clari_clyde

I was travelling all day yesterday, so I missed day 6, but I can honestly say my day 6 happy thing was that I did *not* miss the plane to Chicago, despite the fact that my previous flight was delayed for over 3 hours. Thank goodness, because there were 100 standbys trying to get on that Chicago flight.

My day 7 happiness is being home--despite the fact that it is 3 degrees outside, it's very good to see my family. And yay for my parents getting wireless, which means both my dad and I can be online at the same time. Though I do have to be social occasionally, so my online time for the next week will probably be more limited than usual.

I'm happy that I got all my reports and errands done, so I can go on vacation with a clear conscience. I will *be* very happy tomorrow if all the various blizzards around the country don't delay my flights too much. And I'm happy that as a reward for putting up with my crazy family for a week spending quality time with the family, I'm going to get to see a lot of cool people next weekend in Chicago. *Bounces*

Many, many, many tedious tasks to complete this afternoon before I can go home. I am deeply in need of periodic distraction.

So first, a meme: Open paint. Close your eyes. Draw a cat.
My result under the cut )

Also, what movie(s) and/or TV show(s) should I upload to my brand-new ipod to watch on my plane trip Sunday? (It can't be too many--I think I might have 3 GB of space left? I have no ideas what that translates to in terms of vid files).

I was just going to email this link to [ profile] rsadelle, but then I got to the line "We sodomize you with FUN!" and I had to share it with everyone. It's a blog by one of the writers (or producers?) of Leverage, spoilery for aired episodes--and not only is it funny, it explains some of the behind-the-scenes stuff from the show, and it even references the Bechdel test. It definitely wins my "things that are making me happy today" contest:

Today I am very happy because of the Christmas card I got in the mail from [ profile] talitha78 (which I wasn't expecting, since I didn't sign up for any card exchanges--I'm lucky if I manage to get cards out to my immediate family) and the card and present from [ profile] bop_radar. Thank you so much! I'm saving the rest of the True Blood episodes for my trip home, to be watched at some point when I might otherwise be driven to murder my relatives due to too much family time, and I'm really looking forward to watching them. Yay!!!

Things that are making me happy today:
1. Leftover potato coconut curry for lunch. Yum yum yum.
2. Remembering the party that produced the curry--our office winter holidays party is always a potluck at someone's house, and everyone brings their S.O's and kids and we have a lot of fun. (For example, I experienced Wii for the first time at this party). It's just a general reminder that I love the people I work with.
3. Joni Mitchell, who always makes boring data entry tasks a lot more bearable
4. Rain! Finally! Not to mention cloudy skies which have made sunsets the last 4 days remarkably beautiful.
5. [ profile] maychorian's current WIP, Entertaining Angels , in which Castiel is mysteriously de-aged to around the age of 8 and Dean and Sam have to take care of him. She's posting parts pretty much daily, and it is definitely my current happy place.

Not tagging anyone because coercive memes are evil, but if anyone wants to play you're supposed to post happy things for 7 days.

I'm doing this only because [ profile] mskatej tagged me, but I am refusing to tag anyone else. *Sticks tongue out at meme author: I don't take orders from anybody*

As I understand this meme, you reflect on your year by taking the first line of the first entry of every month this year. I found the concept amusing, and my result turned out to be surprisingly coherent, albeit crazy:

Chances of surviving a zombie apocalypse: zero.I was tempted to just post that subject line without anything in the text, but decided that was a little too mysterious. Now that I finally had a chance to watch and (hallelujah) have access to the internet again, my "Persona" reactions: How on earth is Escapade happening in 4 days? So is iTunes not carrying BSG anymore, or am I just completely incompetent in using their search engine? I liked this episode, don't get me wrong, but I think I had higher expectations of it going in, which might have been a mistake. Ok, I had never even heard of this until about 30 seconds before it aired (I haven't watched live TV since the SV finale...just haven't been in a television mood), but I happened to be surfing the TV Guide channel to see what was on and saw an ad, and DAMN. They pretty much had me at "hentai tentacle monster."

Some of you are under the impression that I am a nice person. That's mostly because I spend a lot of time online suppressing my inner bitch. Here are some more recs from this year's SPN/J2 bigbang, this time a mixed bag: J2 and SPN (including gen, het, and Wincest).I made this rec list about six months ago for a RL friend I was trying to entice into SPN fandom, and since then I have emailed it to several people, and I finally decided to just post these and point people to them rather having to cut and paste all the time. I really can't resist this meme: "As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade." I am now going to try to avoid refreshing political blogs every 30 seconds for the next 14 hours or so. I'm not dead, just having a very busy period at work.

I really can't resist this meme: "As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade. The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic to your LJ."

So my rule for myself was that I couldn't post on any decision that I had already seen posted. I was going to go with Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which ensured the right to contraception for married couples (not single people, alas, that had to wait until Eisenstadt v. Baird in 1972), and also formed the basis for the right to privacy that Roe v. Wade relied upon. But someone already posted that one, so I'll have to go with U.S. v. One Package of Japanese Pessaries (1936), which overturned the provisions of the Comstock Act that had declared birth control devices to be obscene and therefore illegal to send through the U.S. mail.

For anyone interested in that guess-who-my-favorite-characters-are meme I posted yesterday, almost all my favorites were correctly guessed. The only unguessed ones were John Winchester (for Supernatural), Lassiter from Psych, and Cristina and Addison from Grey's Anatomy.

I have a tedious project with lots of boring data compiling to do, and need periodic distraction, so I thought I'd play the "guess my favorite character(s) on this show" meme that's been going around. SO: Who do you think my favorite character(s) for the following shows are: Smallville, Supernatural, Heroes, Veronica Mars, Middleman, Psych, Grey's Anatomy, Buffy, Angel.

For once, a beautiful meme and one that I actually agree with the results on. (It's the visual perception personality one)

Cut to spare the uninterested )

I love this meme:

Originated by [ profile] dsudis, via [ profile] cereta, [ profile] fabu and [ profile] marinarusalka

So I was adding some new interests to my LJ profile (because I, uh... have some new interests. Yes.) and found myself feeling defensive every time I typed a female name, thinking, basically, FUCK YOU, SHE'S AWESOME, because I felt as if someone somewhere was going to be criticizing my love for them.

So, anyway, then I made a list of women who make me want to say FUCK YOU, SHE'S AWESOME. They are far from the only women who are awesome, or the only women people need to be told to step off of, but they are the top ten I feel that way about, right now, off the top of my head.

If you want to argue with me about the awesomeness of any of these women, I am afraid I will simply be referring you to the subject line. THAT IS ALL.

Giant work project #2 is finished. Hallelujah. I still have giant work project #3 to do, but I can kind of see the light at the end of the tunnel, sometime in November, when I'll get to read LJ again.

Skimming my f-list, I noticed SV is airing a day earlier in Canada now. Should I start posting the [ profile] eat_crow master post a day earlier? (Assuming I remember these things?)

Anyway, to celebrate my exciting completion of work project #2, a meme gakked from [ profile] kdsch123

That absolutely gorgeous "Golden Compass" meme, behind the cut. (And incidentally, the website really makes me want to see the film, even though I got very annoyed with that series in book 3).

This cracked me up enough that I had to post it:

I'm a little jealous of you folks who are having a 3-day weekend, but since I'm taking two days off to go to Escapade I guess I shouldn't complain.
