It is a Friday night; I got fed at my parents place, had a nice long shower and am now sipping some Jim Beam and coke. Life is good.

Also, I can't stop listening to Amy Winehouse' Rehab. The woman is really talented. Her voice is like - it is like sex. I admit I judged her as a talentless hack without listening to any of her music, but wow. I kind of want to listen to a duet now between Adam Lambert and her; I think their voices would complement each other.

It always feel strange when I don’t know how to end a post. So, um. Goodbye, I’m off to read fics and drink some more.

I have been fairly sick for the past 2 days; as in can't get out of bed for fear of collapsing on the floor. However, I appear to be currently functioning at 70% capacity; go me!

Also, I have the first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist 2nd season in my hands. I'm unsure how I feel about his.

Okies, now to work, and let's all pray I don't make an idiot out of myself by falling over and not getting up again.


Pacifica Quartet

Just came back from the conclusion of Pacifica Quartet's concerto, during which they played Mendelssohn. It was an interesting experience; I have never been to a proper classical concert so everything was all new to me. I think I would have enjoyed it much more if they had chosen something else to play rather than Mendelssohn. However, I really loved Fugue in E flat major, it was so much more visceral than the rest of the music choices. I’m really glad I went but I think I shall go to something different next time. Still want to go to a musical or opera.

Shopping; a new LCD TV! + SPN PROMO

Bought a 42" full HD LCD television. The plan orginally was to buy a 26"; I made the mistake of taking dad with me and was talked into buying the 42". It is all kind of awesome, and I'm currently watching Spooks season 4 on the new TV. Presently I'm in a very happy place.

(There will be much viewing of DVDs; I'm thinking The Sarah Connor Chronicles!)

ETA: The Supernatural 4x15 promo is OMFG! WHAT?! OMFG! OMFG! OMFG! OMFG!

Instant reaction to the episode.

I spent over $300 on skin care products today. I feel slightly dirty about this, and VERY STRESSED. Also, I'm downloading anime, I'm ACTUALLY going out of my way to watch new stuff. It appears anime is finally having a good season.

Fandom – have been rather thinky about fanfiction, fandom and the issues of gender. Being posting in other people’s LJ, can’t be bothered posting in my own journal in a coherent fashion. At least not yet.

LJ situation – will not be moving, going to sit and wait, highly curious about what will happen in the future. I'm fundamentally lazy.

I leave you with words to meta about;

RL stuff

I just woke up from a four hour nap, had some delicious cheese and sundried tomatoes on crackers, and feel awesome! Spent the long weekend cleaning; there was vacuuming, dusting and moving of furniture. I spent 8 hours shifting dressers, cabinets and wardrobes my friends, old wooden wardrobes that had to be unpacked completely to be moved and then repacked once it is pushed, pulled and lifted to its new location, which was on the other side of the house. The upside; I now have much more space in my room, new furniture and I’m almost 100% sure that I have gotten rid of my cockroach problem. Also had dinner with the boyfriend’s parents in a swanky restaurant, gamed, and finally spent some much needed time on my computer watching youtube clips of DBSK. In conclusion, I have had a highly productive and awesome weekend.

And now I go off to watch Children of Men with dad.

ETA: And the following is why fangirls think members of Korean pop bands are GHEI for each other! I mean they kiss, hug and stuff in front national television. Oh, SuJu, never change!

ETA 2: Skinship basically sounds like what it says; physical contact between individuals. It is often encouraged in Asian countries between people of same sex; it is sign of deeper friendship and affection. Except you know, I swear the Korean boy bands really push it to the limits, on the one hand I think it is because they are that comfortable with each other, on the other hand I think they are doing it for the fanservice, either way it often generates some big reactions.

Torchwood - new s2 trailer + RL

naanima: ([Torchwood] Team)
I am so excited about season 2 of Torchwood.

NEW trailer for series 2, and OMFG! EEEEEE! EEEEE! EEEE! They are going to get this right.

Today is going to be my first day at work and I'm actually fine with it. The two weeks of break I have had was just what I needed to relax and enjoy life once more. There was too much eating, drinking and not enough exercise, so pretty much heaven. One memorable moment being sometime in the wee hours of the morning and me throwing up a day's worth of content into the toilet. Ah, joy.

Also saw I am Legend yesterday. Will Smith is all sorts of awesome in the film, and I'm reminded why these sort of films are always so much more enjoyable in the first half. It is the suspense and the sense of realism, which the second half always let down. But it definitely deserves to be seen on the big screen.

My life in song, if only.

  • Work = STRESS! Oh gods, how I have missed potentially hundred of thousands dollars contract fuck-ups.
  • Relationship = AHAHA! ♥!

  • Doctor Who, The Children In Need special = So much special love. ♥!
  • The Writers Strike = BUY PENCILS! BUY MANY PENCILS!
  • Exercise = Treadmill is ♥!

In conclusion, the concept of SNAFU is all sorts of awesome and currently applies to life.

An I need alcohol.


Life, or something.

naanima: ([Baby] Headdesk)
Nearly a full bottle of red wine, youtube and chocolate – I’m almost feeling human.

Also, Orlando Bloom is starting to look appealing. I blame the alcohol. I cannot believe he's 30, I mean 30. Gods, I wish I'll look that good when I'm 30. Oh, who am I kidding, I never looked that good to begin with.

In addition, Slam Dunk - [ profile] amei, years ago you tried explaining Inoue Takehiko's style to me; the way that he drew movement, how he manages to convey fluidity on paper. At the time I was not impressed, I am VERY VERY VERY impressed now. OMFG! Yes, have read all of Slam Dunk, it is an awesome series. However, as I managed to mainline all of 30+ volumes of it within 2 days awhile back everything is a bit blurred.

Now I go to drink some wine and do some more work.

ETA: Orlando Bloom: It's like a lightsaber, but on fire, you know?
naanima: ([Misc] Give in)
I went to the Everywoman Expo at the convention centre today. It is an expo that's supposedly aimed at women, to cater to their needs and wants. I went with the assumption that it was an expo trying to assist and support women - training courses for women who want to develop themselves professionally and personally. Instead, it was a whoring session on the part of cosmetic companies trying to sell their products to women, because apparently getting rid of cellulites, spending $300.00 on cosmetics and health club membership are everything a woman need or want.

While I would like to get rid of cellulites and look shiny, I really didn't need to spend $15.00 to be allowed admittance to the equivalent of a market; except the products at the expo are about 100% more expensive. It did not feel like an attempt to help and support women, it felt like a chance for companies to make a quick buck off women in general, it isn’t as if women aren’t bombarded with image issues already. All sarcasm meant.

And just for the record - I did not spend a cent, the ticket was a gift, so yay for me.

ETA: And since I'm blabbing about gender issues anyways, the new official SPN promo for season 3 - it is cool, creepy and all sorts of awesome. But, (you know it was coming) is it just me or are all the evil/supernatural beings they show in the clip are, um, well, women? (Wait, I spotted the serial killer ghost). Hell, why are all the victims women (beside Sam and Dean, but considering they only have shots of women screaming in terror and Sam and Dean being all proactive...). What happened to the YED? Not going to go into too much detail, basically, the clip makes all my gender issue antennae go nuts. That's all.

Dear Boyfriend,
I LOVE YOU, I'M GOING TO HAVE YOUR BABIES ONE DAY! I'm hoping soon, because my biological clock is going crazy. Today my work colleague bombarded me with baby photos, ultra sound photos, and 3D ultra-sound photos. It was awesome).

Moving onto fandom related matters - I AM STRONG! I SHALL RESIST THE SPOILERS for the Supernatural finale (barring that one accidental photo I clicked on without stopping to think. I was traumatised because it IMPLIED BIG THINGS). It has gotten to the point that I'm TERRIFIED of scrolling through my spn-filter flist because there will be LINKS and LJ-CUTS, and I am WEAK, and I DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN. I want to watch the season finale NOT knowing what will happen, because I fell in love with this show with no idea where it was going to lead me.

And because re-watching the pilot remind me why I stuck with the series despite some shakey beginnings (there were some truly bad dialogue, and some of Jared's delivery made me wince). But the following, the following made me stick with the show, and I have never been gladder for it.

Dean: I can't do this alone.
Sam: Yes, you can.
Dean: Well, I don't want to.

And Faith had one of the most Sam-lines ever, it defines his character when all else fails.
Dean: ... I'm gonna die and you can't stop it.
Sam: Watch me.

I love this show - it makes me stay up way beyond my bedtime reading up on the names of Demons/Angels and pre-Juedo-Christian/Zoroastrian religious symbols because the writers do their job (let's not talk about Christo, it is a minor glitch that has become an icon). It made me download a stupid amount of music that I would have never listened to, that now I can't stop listening to. I have fallen in love with every single song this show plays (Kansas' 'Wayward Son' is the ultimate song). AC/DC and Led Zeppelin is always on the top of my playlist, and KANE, OH MY GODS! KANE! (Steve Carlson is awesome). I just love this show.

And now - I sleep.

There is no new Supernatural this week. >_<. I thought there was going to be a new episode, I got all happy and excited, and now - bitter disappointment.

Feeling blah and highly unmotivated. I'm glad for the job and money (and seriously, I'm getting paid pretty well - believe I'm making a difference by doing my job and love the people I work with). I just - I just feel as if I'm grinding, as if I'm adrift with no direction. Mind you, the current bout of insomnia is probably messing with me.

One of those experiences.

My mum thinks Jensen Ackles is hot. Hotter than Tom Cruise even! (My mum loves Tom Cruise, thinks he has perfect bone structure, though she always follows the comment with "Too bad he's so short.") *LAUGHS HYSTERICALLY*. I am converting my family - dad is slowly making his way through SPN season 1, and mum thinks Jensen Ackles is really, really, really pretty. HAHAHAHA!

And season 3 of Doctor Who has aired on British Television. LIFE IS GOOD!

ETA: I possibly may have a temper problem, and I swear I shall have better survival instincts from now on and not let my anger do damage. Honest.

I'm literally LOSING my voice here! I can whisper but nothing else. This is bad considering I have many meetings today. [ profile] perseid, when I see you this Saturday don't be surprised if I communicate via palm cards. Also, PLEASE make a list of things you'd like to discuss/talk about, we tend to get sidetracked by something or other. Below is the list of items I shall be bringing, let me know if you'd like anything else from me.

+ Seasons 1 - 4 of Farscape
+ Peacekeeper wars
+ Season 2 of Supernatural
+ Supernatural music vids and music [this is purely for fun. Do you download much SPN FSTs?]


naanima: ([Misc] Going Under)
Today felt as if I was trying to dig my way out of a cave-in, with a straw. Too much grief for me to list, let's just say my brain died on me, my shoe betrayed me, and the concept of déjà vu can go and fuck itself. The only saving grace - the boyfriend, whom I love muchly, and I found out that my blood is B positive. I sleep now.


SPN & Life

On my re-watching of SPN - finished Wendigo, Route 666 and Shadows). And wow – Sam was so skinny, Dean was so excited about everything, and there was this sense of a grand ol' adventure, whereas now it is death, damnation and the stakes are about a thousandth times more deadly then season 1. It is really amazing just how different season 1 and 2 are – in both the external and the internal sense. Emotionally I think Dean and Sam are in a completely different head space than what they were in s1, thematically their journey should have ended at the end of IMTOD, except in many ways it is just the beginning of their story. I love how SPN is not afraid to change, to tackle the consequences of its actions [success of the tackling still under observation], nor afraid to push the boundary on, let's admit it here, a very teenager-oriented network.

Sam and Dean )

It is like watching two different shows. !

RL-wise: feel like roadkill but so very excited about my life.

Just saw the director's cut for this week's Supernatural. OMFG! AHAHAHAHA! spoilers ).

Why isn't it Friday yet?

Things to note - walking while pushing a baby stroller is harder than it looks. After days of needling I have been talked into jogging with work colleagues (yes, the same people who talked me into donating blood). This will only lead to much tears and embarrassment on my part, but all in the name of being fit and healthy! I will rue the day I agreed, I just know it.
