I SPENT $260 AT IKEA TODAY! I BOUGHT MY NEW DINNERWARE! I'm very excited. I bought a very simple beige set. Twelve three piece setting, plus 6 teacups and saucers, 6 coffee mugs (yeah, they're different), 6 oversized bowls, two round serving plates two square serving plates and a Japanese dinner and serving set for two. It amazes me that they make all this in like eight different countries, but it all somehow matches. Also, some storage bins for moving. And lingonberry juice boxes! Found more furniture ideas...changed my mind on the couch...need Ikea gift certificates for Christmas and Birthday. I'm going to have to go elsewhere for the silverware...they don't really have anything I like.

Also, I bought [livejournal.com profile] starsfell's birthday present (I pretty much just gave it away...act surprised, please). I think I know which pop star I'll be going to her party as...but it's a surprise.

I survived yesterday, just barely...I ended up working from 6:30a-12:45a. So next week will be a nice paycheck.

I am becoming increasingly excited about the number of people that will be here in the next 5 weeks.

HP trailer!!! I wonder if [livejournal.com profile] hp_reads is going to do a re-read before November. I definitely need to read DH again.

I don't have anything else to report!

Daniel Radcliff and Katee Sackhoff are both on the "Stars We Like Better Grimy" list.

YES. Also, Viggo.
Oh, David Eick, the hilarity! Paul, you need to come stay at my house for a few weeks (especially since you seem to love watching BSG so much...you'd fit right in here).

Okay, so tonight is technically my last overnight...I go in at 6 PM and get off at 6:30 AM on Sunday. BUT, I have to go back in on Sunday from 3 PM to 11:30PM. Can I just say that 11:30 PM on Sunday cannot come fast enough. Two glorious days off, and then a "regular" schedule. 40HOURSOMGYAY! Almost seems like a vacation. I have to work PM shifts Wed-Sat...but I don't even mind. Thanksgiving, meh. It's never been my holiday. But I do love green bean casserole. I might have to make some.

I think I'll go back and see GOF again on Monday or Tuesday...just so there's a little less squeeing and a little more watching.

Am tired...but not ded yet.

ETA: I love "lethargic" because...belly button.
Now THAT'S the way you take a book I didn't particularly care for and make it into a STELLAR movie. I squeed like a little fangirl for 2 hours straight.

Just. WOW.

I finally finished Half-Blood Prince...thanks to everyone who kept spoilers behind the cut. )

As for ships, none of mine sank, but then again, I keep canon and fanon very far apart. The canon ships are not the ones I like in fanon. So, to all shippers, I say, "sail on!" Ignore those gloaters, they just have to stir up trouble. If Ron/Lavender/Giant Squid is you're OT3...hold your head high and love what you love!

It has become apparent to me that I should have re-read OotP.
Half of you are: OMG!!! Why isn't it Friday yet?!? BATTLESTAR GALACTICA!!!

The other half are: OMG!!! Why isn't it Friday yet?!? HALF-BLOOD PRINCE!!!

It makes me giddy in fannish anticipation, but I'm worried that might wane once my mother arrives. We shall see.
Star Wars is only 8 days away...I wish I was more excited. I think I used all my excitement up too soon. I'm sure I'm just tired. I'll be more excited later.

I finally got around to seeing the GoF trailer. I may have to dodge some rotten veggies, but I didn't love it. GoF has never really been my favorite. I'm sure I'm just tired. I'll be more excited later.

I'm going to rec a fic. I know. But this demands to be read by any fans of the new BSG. It is crazy good. By [livejournal.com profile] rheanna27, Twelve is simply one of the best fan fiction pieces I've read. Ever. It's 12 chapters, with the last one being posted tomorrow. Trust me, it's worth your time.

Okay, I have to get ready for work (overnight...blech).
Title: One life
Fandom: Harry Potter
Character/Pairing: Harry/implied Trio
Rating: PG
Word Count: 250
Time: 15 minutes, 5 seconds

A/N: This is for [livejournal.com profile] abigail89 because I missed her birthday, and she wrote a fic that made me smile.

This week's entry for [livejournal.com profile] 15minuteficlets. Unbetaed and unrevised (sort of), per community rules.

One life )
Haven't written in a while...thought I'd start out small. For [livejournal.com profile] 15minuteficlets. Not beta'ed or revised, following community rules.

Title: Come for Me
Fandom: Harry Potter
Character/Pairing: Ron/Trio
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 350
Time: 15 minutes

Come for Me )
Squee for the trailer. Can I just say, I love Emma Thompson. I love her. And now that I'm totally stuck on the theory that Ron is a seer, I can't wait to see the movie even more!

It's interesting...1/2 flist=THAT RAWKED!!! Other 1/2 flist=ihopealfonsohasntscrewedhpup! Hee.

In RL news, I have an interview tomorrow for THE job. Meh. I'm super nervous. Hopefully I don't put my foot in my mouth. EEK!
...and I had to feed him. This came out of brainstorming for the [livejournal.com profile] triofqf challenge. It's very, I don't know. Lyrical. Angsty. Stream of conscienceness. I don't normally write like this (so the challenge will be better), but it just seemed to fit with this topic. I don't want to give too much away, I want you to make up your mind about it. Let me know what you think, even if you think it's crap.

Trio. Rated PG (maybe 13).

Our Child )
USA: 310
England: 120

That's right, Biotches! USA!USA!USA!

Quidditch World Cup Rules!

Sorry...little excited.
Well, I'm not on the Black list (probably because I don't write NC-17). But I had to make sure I wasn't on the Gold List (or I would have sat right down and cranked something out!)

Nothing makes one want to be bad more than telling them they're not.
If I wasn't a total dumbass and hadn't recorded cspan not once, but TWICE last night instead of Clone Wars. I had to watch it on the tiny computer screen.

And I didn't go to bed until 6 this morning. I had fan fiction in my head after reading "Confessional" by Nightfall. Wow. That was gorgeous. So, I was up, editing fan fics that I haven't published (because I'm afraid of rejection, I think).

And I think that [livejournal.com profile] rainpuddle13 has turned me into a Draco/Ginny fan. I'm totally obsessed right now with DM!Draco, and now I have a DM!D/Ginny fic rolling around in my head.

And going to bed at 6 wouldn't normally be a problem, if my stupid neighbors weren't having a party outside my window at 11.

Anyway...*sulking off to read "Confessional" again*
