Wow. This really gave me a whack in the head. John Hughes died today. RIP, Mr. Hughes, your movies were a centerpiece of my adolescence.


For Fans of the Great Green One!

If you love Gaila like I do (or you know, even in to a slightly saner degree. *G*), come and play! I'm talking with the mods of [ profile] teamgaila to have a corresponding one on LJ, but ANYONE is welcome at the DW meme!


Oh, Google Ads, you so funny! Today's gem was, "Are You a Trekkie? Take our quiz to find out! YOU MAY BE DUMBER THAN YOU THINK!" Hahahahaha. I C WAT U DID THAR!

Wait, here's another one! LOL "Manifesting Works - - Learn How to Jump Into Any Reality You Desire... For Real". Okay! I'm still not clicking that link. Unless you can guarantee Scott Bakula circa 1993 will be there.


Well, I'm finally going to check out Harry Potter tomorrow. I've got a bunch of errands to run later in the afternoon (HELLO new painkiller esp. for that special time of the month!), so I figure if I go to the early matinee, that will leave me plenty of time. It's funny, I heard kind of neutral-positive things about it, but no real squee, so... *shrug* I'm not always a huge fan of the movies as entities unto themselves anyway. I remember especially with GoF, thinking that the story was so holey, so convinced that every viewer had already read the books, that I swear anyone who hadn't would be completely lost.

But it's a tradition for me to see them in the theaters, and with only one more left, I shall continue said tradition with honor! Or... you know, snacks I snuck in.


I'm sort of building my own network of shows I want to catch up on, watching an episode or two every day. Right now, the list includes Star Trek TOS, Dexter, Legend of the Seeker, and Torchwood, among a few others. What I'm looking for here are your favorite anime shows. I know a lot of friends on my FList watch them, and I'm wondering what you recommend. My entire experience with the genre includes Vampire Hunter D and Spirit or... Ghost? The one about the kid who crosses over a bridge into a ghost world, I think. Shit, I can't remember. What else is good?


Please feed the dragons! :D

That got your attention, huh? *G*

You know, I've mentioned a few times lately how much I LOVE the new Star Trek movie -- obviously, or I wouldn't be dipping my foot into the fandom. I've watched my downloaded cam copy a dozen times, and I've loved it more and more each time. I have the release date of the DVD marked on my calendar.

Right now I'm reading the novelization, and I love THAT even more -- more story, more insight into the characters. I know it's not necessarily canon, but MAN. I need to get a hold of this in paperback, because it's one of those books I want to own, physically, you know? I want to have it on my bulging bookshelf and be able to pull it out and leaf through the pages. The writing isn't fantastic, but it adds so much RICHNESS to the story I already love.

If you're interested: Star Trek Movie Tie-In by Alan Dean Foster

Plus, if you like Kirk/McCoy, you'll love it. Their interactions are the best.


Hey, speaking of Star Trek -- WRITING ALIEN PORN IS REALLY DIFFICULT! I mean... what do you call the parts? It's hard enough when you know exactly what they are and the various things they can be called! What if your porn star is not human? I've already established some physiological differences that are helpful rather than hindering, but... I'm still stuck in a couple of places.

... Later...

Okay, I just sort of winged it through, and... MY FIRST KINK FIC IS DONE! Well, the first draft is done, anyway. I'm always nervous writing in a new fandom, ESPECIALLY this one. ESPECIALLY ESPECIALLY with a species that we don't really know that much about, physiologically. It will need a bit more work, but if anyone is interested in giving it a once over beta, I would be thrilled. It's Star Trek 2009, Gaila/Kirk, NC-17, mildly kinky (the kink is suspension), I guess, I don't know... there's zero gravity involved (WHICH I RESEARCHED!). Any takers? I'll be closing it up for tonight and taking another look tomorrow, but if you want a glance at the first draft to give me some notes, that would be awesome.

I'm still on schedule so far for [community profile] kink_bingo! Hmmmm. What should I work on next? I should probably go on with my next Gaila fic, since I'm already running in that direction anyway. *G* What a hardship.

That winner's submission we will use as the universal art to print out postcards ( On your own printer ) and mail them to the addresses given.

The results will only be viewable to me. BUT once the voting ends, I will send the results to the Moderators of this community as well, so you know this is being judged fairly.

Art is subjective etc etc etc. I know this, but I rather do it this way cause I am a softie like that :-D

Hee. Still laughing over that video two days later. MUDDER FAHKER!


Crap! I missed the awesome [ profile] goddessrockgeek's birthday on the 24th. I hope you had a great one, hon!


Also, I wanted to thank whomever nominated my drabble "clock" for the Running With Scissors Award. Thank you so much for thinking of me! *smooch*


From [ profile] killerweasel: SDCC '09: Darren Bousman Reveals Repo! Prequel Plans SQUEEEE!



Okay, when are we starting the write in campaign to urge Gaila's TOTAL AND COMPLETE NON DEATH on JJ Abrams?

I brought the question over to [ profile] teamgaila (actually, someone else brought it first, I just brought it up again) -- hopefully we can get something together! There's already a contest for designing the postcard art going on, if anyone is interested!

Speaking of my green honeypie, this is, at the moment, my very favorite Gaila fic thus far: You're Gonna Make It After All by [ profile] igrokspock - it's gen, and stars Gaila, Nyota and Spock, with a hilarious guest starring appearance by James T. Gaila is having a really difficult time figuring out human sexual mores, and by the time she's spent an entire year studying them, she's gained "Two indecent exposure citations, one best friend, one amazing sex partner, one unexpected mentor, and a Starfleet-funded study of intercultural sexual norms." *draws huge, sparkly hearts around this fic*


OMG you guys! Remember that hatchling I thought died? (No you don't, don't lie, you totally don't pay attention to my fake dragon silliness. ;) It's back and its ALL GROWN UP! So now I have TWO Red dragons OMG! And one IS a female! *dances*

Okay, so... What do I do now? LOL

Let's not stop petting the little red one, because if she dies it will be THAT SAME HORROR ALL OVER AGAIN! Ooh, speaking of horror, I'm suddenly in the mood to hit my watch list again. *G*

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Heh. Now Jessica, the LONE female, is looking all shifty eyed at the pack of males hanging out with her.
