1) I made it back from Cambodia and it was one of the best trips I've had in a VERY long time. What a gorgeous, fascinating, welcoming, delightful country. Couldn't possibly recommend it more highly. I'll post some pics once I've gotten my shit together.

2) I have fallen back down into the Afterlife hole. This show is one of the most powerful series I've ever watched. How everyone doesn't know it, how it wasn't a humongous success...well, add that to the list of inexplicable mysteries of the universe.

3) Speaking of mysteries of the universe. HOW THE FUCK IS LESLEY SHARP NOT ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS ACTRESSES WORKING TODAY. Her acting abilities are breathtaking. Her range. Her EVERYTHING. She should be a household name on par with like...Meryl Streep or Emma Thompson or some shit. Fucking travesty.

Here's a lovely update on all the things going on in my life right now, both the exciting and the banal. Wheeee!

The most best exciting bit is that I am leaving for a trip to Cambodia and Laos in less than 2 weeks. I am so thrilled I almost can't stand it. It's one of those places I've always wanted to go and when I was in Vietnam a couple of years ago we tried to do a side trip to Siem Reap but couldn't quite fit it in. So this time it's all Cambodia (hopefully with a side trip to Luang Prubang, Laos if we can work out the flight).

The slight snag in all this is my guts. They have been acting up again something fierce so I had to have ANOTHER colonoscopy yesterday, 2nd in 2 years and really, it's not fun enough to warrant the repeats. The prep is horrendous and the actual main event isn't that delightful either. Way too much plastic tubing and things being stuck in me. And what is it with anesthesiologists? Do they get a special lesson in med school on how to be douchey? It's like they are caricatures of arrogant, golf-playing, country club medicos. My genius guy yesterday thought it was a funny little piece of trivia that the drug he was about to give me was the same one that killed Michael Jackson. Yeah. Barrel of laughs, that one.

Hmmmm...what else? TELLY! I've watched an insane amount of telly the last few weeks. I saw Inside Men which was quite good with amazing performances but with an ending I think was a bit TOO unresolved. What I found kind of charming was how the creators had pretty much hijacked the entire cast of Luther to be in it. Not to mention Nicola Walker and her smile that could light the world. And I gotta tell you, Kierston Wareing is a WAAAAAAAY better actress than I thought she'd be given her...well, given the way she looks. Seriously, though. She was amazing in Inside Men and she was also great in The Shadow Line which was SOOOOO complex and had a cast of thousands and I ended up watching in one go. All seven episodes. I looooooooooooooooooooved it. Well, I loved everything about it but the last 2 scenes. I honestly think if they had swapped those it would have ended on a much more powerful note. But I couldn't recommend it more highly.

I also watched Marchlands which was delightful. A bit creepy, a bit excellent. I actually watched it twice which is a pretty big indicator of my enjoyment levels on that (and I didn't ONLY enjoy it because of Alex Kingston.) Via Marchlands I discovered the absolutely STUNNING Shelley Conn and then a quick tumblr search showed me that she had some hot lesbian scenes with Anna Torv in Mistresses so I watched the first series of that. And considering it had Sarah Parish, Raza Jaffrey, Max Brown, and Shelley Conn and Anna Torv in gorgeous sex scenes, I can't believe how much I wanted to knock myself unconscious by the second ep. What a god awful show. Holy CRAP is it melodramatic and awful. What a waste of talent.

Finally, I watched a couple of episode of Accused and Chris Eccleston was his usual mindblowingly amazing self. I also watched the ep with Peter Capaldi who absolutely broke my heart. I'm forcing myself to watch PramFace because I love Anna Chancellor so much (don't worry, I ffwd to her scenes and avoid the rest) and Upstairs Downstairs has me shipping Blanche/Agnes so hard I can't see straight.

So, there you go. Massive post of a whole lotta nuthin'. <3

ETA. I forgot I also finally watched The Borgias and I can't stop thinking about it now. I want to wear those dresses and do my hair with one of those snoods with the pearls and I want it to come back for a second series ASAP. Good shit. Dirty bad wrong and delicious in its potential incestuousness, general lewdness, and perfectly bad ass female characters.

Almost made it through January without completely losing my shit which is very, very good. I mean I'm not in the habit of wishing my life away by wanting time to go faster, but when it comes to the shitty, dark, horrible months of winter I think I can make an exception. I'm pretty sure things have been a bit better than usual because the weather has been so mild, but I don't want to jinx it.

ANYWAY. Yay! I've also got an amazing trip to Cambodia and Laos planned for the end of March which is giving me reason to keep going and I'm taking care of some small redecorating things in my condo which is always lovely.

I just really need to find a way to get my RP mojo back. When I'm into RPing I love it, but every few months or so I seem to lose interest and wander away from it and it's hard to jump back in. I need to make a more concerted effort to keep that tendency under control.

So...yeah. There's my random update. You're welcome. ;)

My friend, the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] outlaw_mel and I were discussing how excited we are for the new Birds of Prey series to be released on Wednesday. Which brought to mind the fact that I am incredibly disgusted by DC's reluctance to follow where Marvel and many independent comic publishers have already gone and make their comics available for digital download. I mean WHAT THE HELL? They are already losing a ton of revenue to people pirating copies of their stuff and honestly, I'd be more than happy to spend a LOT more money on comics if I could have them at the push of a button.


Anyway, I got my comic nerd rant on and MeL convinced me I should email DC Comics and tell them what I think.

Which I then...DID.

What makes this so weird is that I DON'T DO THAT. I am not the kind of person to write angry letters to companies. Or ANY letters, for that matter. And I certainly don't email companies to tell them how to run their business. But in this case? My nerd rage won out.

So, there you go. That has to be in the top 5 nerdiest things I've ever done simply for the fact that I actually signed my real name to an email telling a comic book company how to sell more comics.

Who AM I?

I finally sat down and watched the first 5 eps of the new season.

There will be spoilers under here... )

Ok. I just saw this on my flist and I think it's a brilliant idea. I'm in a grumpy mood today and I want to take a little while to remember all the things that are making me HAPPY lately. So, here is a list. In picspam form, of course. ;-)

Happy making things under here... )

Why can't I have a pet capybara? LIFE IS NOT FAIR!!!

I want to kiss it right on the nose! Oh, man. I want one. I want one sooooooooo badly.

ETA: Here's an interview with a woman who has one as a pet. I am so jealous it HURTS ME.
ceebee_eebee: (Default)
Ok, people. I'm out! I leave for NY tomorrow to meet up with the family and then it's off to Panama. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. It's beach and sun and surf for xmas and I am the happiest girl in all the land!!!

I'll hopefully have some good pics to share when I get back right before the new year.

Don't break anything while I'm gone.

Ok. As I'm sure most of you are aware, I am an extremely monomaniacal individual. My obsessions come hard and fast and then they are done when I move onto the next shiny thing that I can't stop thinking about for more than 5 seconds at a time.

On occasion, I have obsessions that crop up again and again. One of those is...well, paleontology in a general sense. The Cambrian explosion, trilobites, dimetrodons, the Permian mass extinction, DINOSAURS!!!

So, when the Discovery Channel started showing the new miniseries Clash of the Dinosaurs (AWESOME, BTW!) I got hooked and now I can't stop thinking about this shit. I've already ordered a bunch of scientific books for the layperson on the subjects and reread Jurassic Park and the Lost World.

HERE IS MY QUESTION, GREAT FLIST. Why the hell isn't there more dinosaur fiction available? I NEED MORE DINO FIC!

If you have read anything that a lover of extinct creatures and the whole Jurassic Park situation might enjoy, PLEASE REC IT TO ME RIGHT NOW! I beg you. I'm desperate for more paleo-fiction.

Jury Duty.

Hours of boredom sprinkled with a few minutes of sheer panic. I HATE THIS CRAP. And living in DC? We are called every 2 years like clockwork for 2 different courts. It's enough to make a person contemplate moving to Maryland.

The brightside? They finally got wifi up in this shihole. WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
ceebee_eebee: (TARDIS)
It's always like this after a con. It SUCKS. I blame all the awesome people who kept me up until 4am every night. Them and their damn awesomeness. GRRRRR.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Who was brilliant. Seriously. The hotel was kind of crap, but the con itself was organized BEAUTIFULLY. Anyone who was on the fence about going next year?


Some of the guests have already been announced and they include Colin Baker and Frazer Hines.

Let's take a poll and see how many of you think I'll be there. ;-)

Anyway, yes. It was fantastic and I loved every minute of it. Especially getting to go to Epcot. I <3 Epcot.

Now? I just want to sleeeeeeeeeeep.
ceebee_eebee: (Eddie!)
I'm falling into that RP hole where I never post anything to my LJ.

I don't WANT to do that! So, here's an update. I'm heading to Orlando on Saturday morning for the Who con and I'm ALMOST done with my costume.

The weather here sucks.

Also? Mock the Week is one of the funniest shows EVER and I am oddly attracted to Frankie Boyle's misanthropy.

Finally, Eddie Izzard. I'm only attracted to him in drag. No, I don't know either.
ceebee_eebee: (Music)
It's sucked from the second I opened my eyes. I hate it so much I didn't even bother putting my contacts in so I'm at work wearing glasses. Which I HATE.


There's only one thing for it. The liberal application of Crowded House.

Walking round the room singing Stormy Weather, at 57 Mount Pleasant Street...
ceebee_eebee: (TARDIS)
I DID!!!

Yup, that's right. It's official. I have my plane ticket, I have my membership and I'm SO there. Who else is going? Prof, I know you'll be there, right?

Now I just need Lisa to be confirmed as a guest and all will be right with the world. :-)
ceebee_eebee: (Default)
I haven't posted anything here in MONTHS and I've pretty much fallen off the face of the earth. But I swear, it's not my fault! If you want to blame anyone, blame the person who got me involved in RPing. Yes, darling. You know who you are. ;-)

Anyway, I'm still alive and I still read my flist even if I haven't been commenting much. I'll try to be better about that.

What's prompting me to post NOW is a query.

Does anyone know any other comms besides [livejournal.com profile] thefulcrum to find gorgeous LJ layouts?

Oh, and I'll try to be better about posting again. Assuming there's anyone who still has this LJ friended. ♥
ceebee_eebee: (S&S)
It's absolutely ridiculous how much Big Finish shapes my fannish life. I can't imagine for one second that I would be this obsessed with Sapphire & Steel if BF didn't do the audios. I watched all of the television assignments and enjoyed them well enough, but I tend to find watching tv shows difficult now. It never used to be that way, I used to watch TV incessantly. But now it's like a chore, no matter how much I enjoy the show. Not so with audios. I find it difficult to STOP listening to them. I've already re-listened to several of the S&S audios even though I haven't heard them all yet. I just...I just can't get enough of them.

How did I manage to go my entire life without realizing that my favorite entertainment format is that of the friggin' radio play?!?! I should have been born British.
ceebee_eebee: (TARDIS)
I fly out first thing in the morning and head straight there from the airport. I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED I THINK I'M GOING TO THROW UP.


How the hell am I supposed to sleep tonight?!
ceebee_eebee: (TV)
She finally made it onto stuff on my cat.


My poor kitty. Such abuse. But that's what comes from living with a geek. ;-)
ceebee_eebee: (WTF?!)
I finally scored photoshop and I was all excited about it. Then I realized I haven't the SLIGHTEST idea how to use it and so I am kind of just staring at the program in horror.

This sucks.

Anyone want to come over and show me how to use this shit? I'll make you pie! ;-)
