last fic of the year

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

Didn’t I say I wasn’t going to do this? ‘Definitely not going to be racing to finish this New Year’s Eve’ — I’m sure I remember promising that. Dammit. Anyway, here it is, one final 2011 fic. look to the sky for love (look to the stars for light) Fandom: Avengers movie!verse, sort of Word […]

movie review: Sherlock Holmes 2 (Game of Shadows)

Friday, December 30th, 2011

1. Jude Law: snappy dresser. Seriously, how did he manage to look good in *everything* they put on him? RDJ mostly looked like a bum, no matter what he was wearing. Even when he was dressed up! (No offense to Robert Downey Jr; bum is a good look for him.) 2. So they cut out […]

movie thoughts that are not a review

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Back from the (movie) theater! Wow, I am still having trouble with the fact that it costs *eight dollars* to see a matinee. That is — wow. Anyway! It turns out that our local cineplex is just as loud and obnoxiously colored as it always has been, but I hadn’t been in a while, so […]

Something happy, something thoughtful, and something funny! Happy Neil Gaiman’s New Year’s Wishes Thoughtful 10 Ways to Love Others, including: 10. If you want to keep growing emotionally and spiritually for the rest of your life, accept this as your mantra and try to live as if it were true: Everything that I experience from […]

now celebrating: gap week

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

We have reached that most wonderful time of the year — the time when we can finally stop celebrating! When I was little (I remember thinking about this in the first house I lived in, so it would have been age 8 or under), I visualized the year as a calendar line. Sort of like […]

fic rec o’ the day

Monday, December 26th, 2011

I was saving A Curious Carriage of Crystal and Cold (by etharei) for Christmas, since I knew I had the day off, and it’s over 100,000 words long. Worth the wait! The biggest problem I have with stories that do stuff with pre-destination and reincarnation, etc (as I wildly lump vastly different concepts into one […]

advent – down to the wire

Saturday, December 24th, 2011

I spent yesterday mournfully looking at my computer, which was turned off for my “day without technology*.” Not gonna lie, that was one of those things that sounded more enjoyable in my head than it did when I was faced with the actual reality of it. (I did enjoy checking it off the list, though!) […]

dear netflix: What?

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Netflix has inadvertently brought some humor to my night. When I realized they were sending me *Chicken Little* as my next dvd (not that I have anything against Chicken Little, it’s just not perhaps what I would have chosen if I’d been paying any attention to my queue), I figured I should go add some […]
