get yr RIFT ON! - slod

Year of THE RIFT!!, Day One

First off, the less that's said of my New Year's Eve, the better. Any night that ends with me hiding in a bathroom and then calling my father to get him to call the house and invite me to breakfast at eight o'clock in the morning just so that I can get someone out of my house, is not a night that's for the best. Also, I may, apparently, have called some people.

I have no memory of this.

So, if you talked to me on the phone last night -- well, I'd tell you that everything I said wasn't serious, but I think you all probably know that pretty much always apply.

Secondly, I am still RIFTING with lyra_sena, in case you were wondering. My plots against her are multiplying in number, and variety. Very soon, *I* will rule all of Podtropolis! Muaahahhahahah! (<3!)

But yis. Welcome to 2005, everybody. Let's hope this year is better than the last, and when I say better than the last, what I really mean is "Let's hope this year Ioan Gruffudd decides he cannot live without me, and shows up at my dorm room with many roses and lovely jewelry, to make an honest woman of me."

I have no resolutions this year, and that's because I never have any resolutions. And if I do, I don't keep them. (Or really remember them.) So I'm cutting down on all that nasty disappointment with myself, and just -- not making any resolutions. I think it works out neatly.

But, yeah. It was nice to spend 2004 with y'all here in LJ-land, and I look forward to 2005 being even better. (As it must be, for soon I will control all of fandom with my iron fist of doom!!! Under my rule you will all write and art for ME ME ME!!)


It appears that this year will at the very least be more megalomaniacal than the last for me.

Yuletide reveal time! Woot! *does a dance* I don't know why I got so excited about the Reveal, but boy-o, did I.

Anyway, I wrote for thermidor, Romeo and Juliet fic -- Waste Our Lights In Vain, Mercutio/Tybalt, Mercutio/Romeo, Romeo/Rosaline.

*dances away to read all yuletide fics again*

not my job - slod

Jane, you ignorant slut.

I am strong: I was confronted with the early Horatio Hornblower dvd box-set, and after immediately reaching out, grabbing it, clutching it to my breast as though it were my new born child, and cooing to it for a little bit, I reviewed my monetary situation, and decided that perhaps those pretty green pieces of paper should live in my wallet a little while longer.

I am weak: I went to Blockbuster and rented every DVD in the world OMG. One of which, Salem's Lot (the remake with Rob Lowe and Andre Braugher !!! both in the same movie !!! worlds collide !!!) is making me think in a way that makes me uncomfortable. Because by 'making me think' what I secretely meant was 'typing in Salem's Lot fanfiction to Google Search and hoping for the best'.

I am strong: My cigarette count as of right this very secod for today, is zero.

I am weak: Dinner was nutella on an english muffin.

I am strong: I did my laundry today, without any prompting whatsoever.

I am weak: Oh god, there are too many things that come up for Salem's Lot fanfiction and all I want is Mike/Matt Burke!!!111!!!! Andre Braugher is straight even when he's gay but I love it omg!!!

I am strong: I have only watched the extended edition of King Arthur once since I bought it.

I am weak: Well. I bought it.

I am strong: The creation of the LJ-comm get_vertigo makes me want to forsake all things other than sitting around and writing Lucifer and Sandman and Hellblazer fic, and lo, instead I have done laundry, dishes, and various and sundry other things. But, that should not stop you gentle readers, from writing those fandoms 24-7, esp. Mona/Elaine Belloc OMG I AM JUST SAYIN'!!!! *cough*

I am weak: This will not last long, I know it.
