WHY THE HELL IS THIS PLACE SO UGLY?

La, La, La

Quick note, I'm erin2326 on Dreamwidth. I'm not going anywhere, but I figured what the hell. Now I just have to figure everything out.

And yes, I miss my old name, obviously. I have buyer's remorse.

Stolen from Everyone

I'm bored.

Today has been declared lurker amnesty day! Have you read me but never commented? Do you surf by occasionally? Here for the fic? Say hello! You are under no obligation to ever comment or delurk again, but here's a chance to do so in a post just for that.

I don't think anyone actually lurks my journal, but who knows?

Argh.

Oh, flist. I am very tired. I managed to get my big bang ready to submit, and now I'm stuck on the damn summary, which is never going to get written, because everything I write sounds like something out of the badfic hall of fame.

For instance:

Spencer Smith’s routine never varied, day to day. Get up, go to work, go home and go to bed. He had an orderly and tidy life, and things were good.

Things were okay.

All right, things were kind of terrible, and Spencer suffered in a mental institution for it. But he made it through and now he’s back out, trying to find his place in the world again.

Life was okay. Or at least it was going to be.

Can Spencer find love after life in a mental institution? Will he succumb to the pressures of routine? Will he ever manage to shake the feeling that his life is being narrated by an old for trees woman with the sinus headache from hell?

All these questions and more will be answered if you read this story!



All right, I added the part in italics when I was starting to get punch drunk, but you get the idea. This shouldn't be more difficult than actually writing the story, and yet.

We're All Turning to a New Religion

This isn't the sort of thing you see on my journal much anymore, but my girls requested it, and I love them a lot, and they kept me around even when I went over to the dark side, so. ♥



Okay, gotta get back to my Big Bang, OH GOD I'M NEVER GONNA FINISH.

Coffee is the Name of the Game on this Occasion

I have one goal tonight. Get my big bang in decent order. It's currently sitting at 18,871 words, but it's missing a sex scene (because I hate writing them) that should tip it over the limit, and then I have to edit the shit out of it.

It doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to be not so terrible that my mixer wants to kill themselves when they get it.

I suspect it'll be covered with notes like, "CHANGE THIS, YOU FUCKING IDIOT, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?" but you know, they'll get the idea.

Wish me luck, flist! I'm at the finish line, finally!

So, I've been watching The Tudors. I've made it through 2.09 so far.

No Need for Words Now

Ugh, I'm so tired. I've not been sleeping very well, and I was woken up early this morning by my aunt calling me to ask me to come over and help move furniture tomorrow. Fun times.

So, is anyone else really loving The Unusuals? I'm seriously enjoying it. Once I got past the whole Amber Tamblyn playing an actual adult with a real job is weird thing I got into it. I'm pretty terrified it'll get cancelled, because it just seems like the kind of show that has a hard time making it. (Damn it, Firefox, I am not spelling cancelled wrong. Just because YOU think there's an extra L in it doesn't mean that the world has to agree with you. I LIKE THE NON-AMERICAN SPELLING AND NOW IT'S A HABIT, LEAVE ME ALONE.) Of course, I've been wrong about shows being cancelled many, many times in the past. Seriously, I thought Friends was never going to last. Trufax.

Watched Pan's Labyrinth last night. Creepy movie, or creepiest movie? Discuss.

Let This Be My Annual Reminder that We Can All Be Something Bigger

Let's have a conversation, LiveJournal.

Tell me one quality you really like about yourself.

Personally, I like the fact that I'm a fairly forgiving person. I don't tend to hold grudges, and I can forgive people pretty easily. Sometimes it backfires on me, but I don't regret being that way, because I think I'm the better person for it. We're all going to get hurt in life, and I'd rather be the kind of person who can let that go rather than hold it in.

It's your turn! What do you like about yourself?

In the Absence of Gratitude, We All Feel Alone

I hate cooking, you guys. Like, I always think I'll like it in theory, but in practice it's always disastrous.

Tonight for dinner I was making crunchy parmesan cheese chicken and pasta with vodka/tomato cream sauce.

I started cooking at 6:00, only to find that the onions I JUST BOUGHT were rotten. So I drove to my aunt's where she hooked me up with an onion, drove home, and began the chicken. I burnt the onions, undercooked the pasta, dirtied practically every dish in the kitchen, and finally finished what turned out to be a mediocre meal at 7:45.

Cooking? Is not my thing.

But I do have a Cadbury milk chocolate bar sitting next to me, so things are looking up.

I just realized there's a staple trapped under my -> key. Taxes.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

If Wishes Were Horses, I'd Have a Ranch

So, [livejournal.com profile] annella mentioned Dreamwidth, and it got me thinking about something that I'd forgotten I was already thinking about. Tricky, right?

ANYWAY. How many people are planning to move to Dreamwidth? Personally, I'm not planning on going anywhere, but I'm a little nervous that half of my flist will be moving or something. And what exactly is it that's appealing about it? How is it better than LJ? I mean, aren't they all kind of the same? I'm seriously asking this question, btw, because I honestly don't get it.

Anyway, a poll:

I think maybe I'm officially too old to stand for longer than four hours at a time. My feet are killing me.

I ramble about the TAI show a bit. )

Mostly what I got from the show was that you know, band boys are attractive.

You Wasted Life, Why Wouldn't You Waste the Afterlife?

By 9:00am I had already failed up my day so much that today is going down as a less than great day. That takes some serious dedication to failing.

But things are okay. I managed to get my hands on a ticket to the TAI show on Sunday. Of course, it cost $40 instead of the original $10, and now I'm going alone, but whatever. At least I'm going.

I made the mistake of going and looking at the SPN wank, and it made me a little sick to my stomach to see how some people were talking about Danneel. My God, seriously? At least attempt to hide your all-consuming hatred of women, teenies. Jesus.

Joe Trohman is my new favorite. Yeah, I said it.

If I wrote a Conor Oberst primer thingy, I wonder if people would read it and then write fic for me. I just want Conor/anyone, is that too much to ask?

I'm Having Kind of a Bad Month

I'm kind of ridiculously upset right now. My cousin was supposed to get our tickets for TAI and Empires, but she kept forgetting, and now they're apparently sold out.

I realize it's stupid to be this upset about it, but it's not like I have a chance to see bands I love live very often, so this was kind of a big deal for me. I've been looking forward to it for weeks, and now I'm so disappointed. Even the fucking Akron show is sold out, because I would have been willing to road trip it if I had to. I hate this. I'm so depressed. I'll get over it, but right now it really sucks.
