So, taking a break from packing (long story) to do a post up, seeing as how I have now finished all 11 seasons of Cheers! I started it, what, how many years ago? Stopped, started again, stopped for ages, started again... Anyways, this summer, I picked it back up and polished off seasons 9-11 (possibly season 8 as well... I can't remember now, haha).

20 min shows are always super easy to binge, but also, this show is a great brain cleanser if I watched something too intense close to bed and it was a great background show while working on wedding stuff for my friend this summer. Also great background for packing - I pretty much did season 11 entirely in the past week during packing. XD

As in previous Cheers related entries, I just have some random thoughts and ramblings. Warning: this got long.

where everybody knows your name )

So, top of the list of Things I Probably Shouldn't Be Doing Because I Have Other Stuff To Be Doing is a whole list of Bangs I've signed myself up for. XD

give in and give out )
I've been meaning to do this post forever, but keep not having time (or forgetting b/c I'm too forgetful for my own good). FINALLY both had some time AND remembered, so here goes!

Back when the 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who was coming out, I had a freak out because I was so excited for it (as most Whovians did). Then I found out they were airing the special at a theatre near me and I REALLY freaked out with excitement. Unfortunately none of my real-life friends were Whovians, and I didn't particularly want to go alone... so I asked my sister if she would go with me. She shrugged and was like sure, so I bought us two tickets. Then I said it'd probably be a good idea if she watched some of the show before we went and saw the 50th special, so she at least knew kinda what she was getting into. She said sure.

And thus I embarked on a journey to crash course my sister through Doctor Who is like... less than a month.

This post is to tell you what we crash-coursed through, in the hope that it might help fellow Whovians convert others!! This post is definitely my opinion and by no means a hard-fast guide, because everyone is going to have their own thoughts and opinions on which episodes are most important and why. (Also contained in this post will be spoilers, so non-Whovians, you should probably NOT read on...)

Hobey ho, let's go.i am a mad man with a box )
Another year, another Het Bang sign up. Before I get going on that, a few things: this entry will contain pointless Het Bang ramblings. I was going to spew about some Game of Thrones stuff, but I have a feeling that's going to get long, or in any event, should be a separate entry, so I will do that sometime.
all of your wallowing is unbecoming )

Who Update

Ok, I AM CAUGHT UP. Practically just in time, as I believe it comes back on March 31?
this got long... )

Doctor Who!

Ok, so, let me just say that I've had some horrible real life stuff happening lately, and have been absent. I will eventually get around to posting about it, but the pre-Christmas rush of life is starting now, and, anyways. Basically I was going to ramble about Doctor Who on my tumblr and it started to get really long, so I figured it was a better idea to stick it here and just post lightly on my tumblr instead.

the foreshadowing is killing me )

what am i doing seriously )

Bang Update

So right now I have about 20k written (with another rough 3k of extra scenes that I've written pieces of, but haven't gotten to in the linear progression of the fic yet). I've adopted a sort of "No Looking Back" policy, which means I'm trying to just pound it all out and not reading back what I wrote to pick, edit, trim, etc.
trying is the key word )
Ok guys. The Mandatory Check-In post has gone up at [ profile] het_bigbang. And I just need a few moments to whine and flail and think out loud, because I am this close to dropping out (*wince*). This could get very repetitive, incoherent and rambly (sorry).

help but i don't know how you can )

Cheers (again)

What I should be doing: a report for work, dishes, working on my Bang for hetbigbang...

What I'm doing instead: Procrastinating, what else?
and ranting about sam and diane so, you know, you're warned? )

As I mentioned in the previous post, while grabbing the new things I've recently made to post, I realized there was roughly a dozen or so G/I desktops I never posted. I would say I don't know how that happened, but I tend to post things at random in different places, so it's very easy to think I posted things and never did. Anyways, without further ado, here's the rest of the forgotten George/Izzie art - enjoy!

and i swear to keep it safe till in my grave )

Dry Spell?

Right now I feel like I am going through a weird dry spell in terms of creating things. I haven't made very much art over the past few months (just a handful compared to what I'm usually churning out), I've written almost nothing (fics or otherwise), and only just in the last week or two came up with a vid (ignored the dozen and a half started/unfinished projects in various states of completion to whip out a short George/Izzie vid in like 3 days). It's kind of weird, because usually my "muse" just shifts to one medium or another for while, or divides her time between all of them.

this looks familiar... vaguely familiar... )

Life On Mars

Ok, so I caved and got Netflix. They sent my parents (who already have it) a free trial, so they gave it to me, and well, I couldn't let it go to waste. It's not like I have enough other things to watch and read as it is, now I have all the choices of Netflix (Canada, that is, which I'm told has a significantly lesser selection than the US version, but there's still a crap load of stuff on there).

oh man wonder if he'll ever know... is there life on mars... )
Part of this is to brag a little, but mostly this post is because it's 1:30 in the morning and I just got back from having such a wonderful fun night with my aunt (junk food and a Christmas chick flick double feature - The Holiday and Love Actually) that now I am wide awake and feel like posting.
baby boom santa, thank you for mtveeeee... )

So as you may or may not know, back in May, I signed up for this fanfic "Big Bang", where you basically have to write a big story in a (relatively) short amount of time (kind of like NaNoWriMo or whatever it's called, which I have never attempted because I am the lethal combination of procrastinator and perfectionist when it comes to writing). For this one, it has to be centered on a het pairing (therefore the genre should be mostly romance), must have 25 000 words or more, and must be done by September 25th.

why yes I AM ridiculous )

I've seen many other LJers do this sort of thing, and I figured I probably should too. I have SO. MANY. Ships. So don't be too overwhelmed.

(Read: I am on a scheduled "break" from my self-imposed Bang writing regime today, and I'm making the most of it by doing... this...)

ship shippy shipness is shiptastic )
Feeling like you want to write but have no idea what to write about? Need a bit of a kick-start? Then this post is for you, my friend. A whole royal dump of wee prompts, laid out in tables to save space, below the cut.
boy, am i good at procrastinating )
