[livejournal.com profile] tinx_r, I think you'll be glad to know that I decided to save the ten seasons of Stargate for later and watch season 2 of Riptide first. So you can expect there to be Riptide-related squeeing soon.

I'm only seven minutes into the first ep of season 2 and there's already inappropriate touching. OMG, Cody, are you ever going to let go of Nick's shoulder again?
*loves Riptide*

Everyone else, I will rewatch Stargate eventually. I'm already rereading tons of J/D slash, so expect there to be Stargate squeeing, too.

And if anyone thinks I desperately need to (re)watch and squee about any other show, feel free to let me know. I'm your loyal fannish slave. ;-)
Important service announcement!

Here's some things you should know about the current status of Oceana:

*Oceana is not dead!

*Oceana is way waylaid by real life (life? Hah! what life?)

*Oceana has not watched every Don Johnson movie she could get her hands on during the past few weeks. (OMG the icon it sparkles!)

One of the above statements is a lie.

Also, here's a link: http://www.beedogs.com/index_files/page0001.htm

Somewhere in there, there's a deep metaphore for my current real life situation. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

*hugs neglected flist*

*rushes off*

I know, Michael Jackson died, and somebody dropped a ricecorn in China, yada yada.

But the truly worldchanging news are these:

2010 brings Universal phone charger for (almost) all phones companies, including Apple!

Now there's something the world's been waiting for.

Hell, I've just thought about this this morning when I made my packing
list for the next trip:
- camera and charger
- ipod and charger
- ipod shuffle and adapter for charger
- blackberry and charger
- mobile phone and charger
- brain and charger

I need an extra bag just for my elecronics equipment, and that's even though I'm traveling with the laptop!
So Dawson's Creek didn't really break my remote control.

Uhmm... the batteries were empty.

I feel a bit embarassed now after going to the store all panicked and sad about what with Jared making me cry and my remote control being broken by Dawson's Creek, and the friendly guy asked "did you switch the batteries?" in a very friendly way, a little bit as if he were talking to a sweet, yet not very smart child, I imagine.

I gave him my patented deer in the headlights look, and then he changed the batteries for me, and then I ran back to my cave to hide.

[And let me tell you, those turquoise wedge highheels may be the most fashionable summer shoes I have, but they aren't made for running, in caves or otherwise.)

I've been involved in fandom for more than 8 years now. I know, doesn't seem like such a long time, but it's longer than the average marriage.

I've learned many things during my time in fandom. (Many of them involve gay sex, but that's besides the point.)

One of the things I learned is that it's not a smart thing to start reading a 39-chapter fanfic at 1 a.m.

Know what I haven't learned yet?

Not to start reading a 39-chapter fanfic at 1 a.m.

Sometimes I want to run around naked in public, screaming "look, I can be naked and you can look at my nakedness and we are not going to hell!!!"

(well, I am, but that's because of all the gay porn I read)

This midnight rant (midnight rants are always a bit shorter than normal rants, plus, it's already 1 a.m.) was brought to you by Oceana's general fedupness (totally a word) with prudishness in general, and in the US in particular. (sorry, but it's true)

I make lists. Like, for everything. I list my vacation days and how I intend to spend them, I list the things I want to look at the next time I'm at IKEA, I list what I want to cook and buy, but most of all, I make to do lists.

Every Thursday or Friday when the weekend gets closer, I make a list of what I need/want to do on the weekend. Then I put it somewhere and lost sight of it and have to start all over again. (Needless to day, I forget a lot of things. But that's why I'm making lists.)

Today I managed to get one of my to-dos done ("clean desk"), and I found one of my old lists, probably dating from January this year. Here's what it says, and I really haven't the slightest clue why it says what it says.


  • Sell stuff on ebay

  • clean desk *

  • check out pension funds

  • book hotel in Jordan

  • cook (plan on Friday, grocery shopping on Saturday)

  • horse

  • update ipod

  • do not ever attempt to write Harry/Snape

Oh, it's so easy to amuse myself these days. And people wonder why I never get any work done...

*well, that only took three months.

Tell me when you last found a not to yourself that left you clueless (and hopefully amused)?
Planning my next vacation, I'm checking out international websites
that offer horseback vacations.

Reading the English translation of the travel information on a French website:

"Never go down on your horse without the guide authorization."


Thank you, I wasn't planning to.

1) Meet Gus the Mini Dachshund
(What? Surely I don't need a reason to post links to puppy pictures?)

2) I got carded today. Just to remind you, I turned thirty not even two weeks ago, but they still think I shouldn't be allowed to play the lottery. They may be right, but it still totally made my day.

3) I bought the apple component av cable for my beloved MetalliPod. Now I'm thinking that I may have been better of with the analog cable, because it will be comptaible with more tvs. Anyone got any experience with this?

4) I've been mainlining HP slash these last days, so much so that I've even forgot to watch House until 3 in the morning every night. (do you know how long it takes to watch three entire seasons of a show when you never come home before 9.30 p.m.? and while we are at it, do you think I could successfully sue amazon for offering three-season-dvd packs, since they are clearly meant to steal my life, and how many DVDs could I buy with the compensation I got if I won the claim?) Anyway, Harry Potter. I have learned that I cannot stay in front of the computer forever, since I sometimes have to get up and eat, or go to the bathroom, and other stupid things. I'm trying my best though.

My current dealer in all things HP/SS is [livejournal.com profile] regan_v, but if any of you got Harry/Snape recs for me, I'd be grateful. I already fear the day when I have read through all of Regan_v's recs.
At least I have House to fall back to, if my HP sources dry out.

5) Off to see the wizard now, in other words, I'm trying out a new horseriding place. Wish me luck!

You know what's really annoying?

When you suddenly remember that you blink, like, all the time, and then you can't stop noticing that you blink, and then you try really hard not to notice which automatically leads to trying not to blink at all, because otherwise you'd notice. That's really annoying.

No wonder I never get any work done.
