I thought I should include an entry to indicate that most of the stuff in my journal is friends-locked and explain a little bit about that. Fic and some fannish stuff is the exception. A couple thoughts on why you may or may not want to friend me:

Things I love:
My kids. My husband. My family. My friends.
Insane liberals
Kiefer Sutherland and almost everything about 24 until the end of 8x17;)
Books, words, and ideas
Writing fanfic
Irony and sarcasm
Laughing at idiocy
Intelligent, respectful debate
Learning about anything and everything I'll never have the opportunity to experience myself

Things I hate:
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and everyone like them. No, seriously. If you fangirl Ann Coulter, we are probably not a good LJ matchup.
Republicans who want to sink Obama's legislation just to watch him fail

I may edit this as I think of others. If you want to friend me, comment on this entry and it's likely that I'll friend you back. I do like to know something about the people on my friends list, so give me a hint as to what you think we have in common:)

I'm exhausted, hot as hell, cranky, and my voice is on the verge of giving out (pretty standard for mid-July), but that didn't keep me from laughing until my stomach hurt over 7 Unintentionally Sexual Optical Illusions.

As you can probably guess, NSFW.

p.s. My current music is amazing. If you don't know it and your musical taste is at all like mine, check it out. *swoons and makes fanvid in head*

p.p.s. I thought I loved certain celebrities until I saw what happened on tumblr during Comic Con. I sit corrected.
leigh57: (Scully Wine Time)
CT was kind of like some terrible reality show (possibly about New Jersey) but more about that later. For now, a meme.

Stolen (as almost always, it seems) from lowriseflare:

Hit me with a fandom/character/pairing and I'll list my three most unpopular opinions about it. (Point being, I don't guarantee they'll be unpopular. Just that they'll be opinions. I say this only because often I have no idea what the popular opinion is.)

You guys, I am not too proud to beg. Talk to me and give me fannish stuff to think about while I try to do the approximately 12 thousand things I should be doing to organize life. And I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
leigh57: (8x06 Renee relief)
Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Ugh, you guys. I'm begging for distraction. My bb went off to soccer camp this morning and there were ten million kids and they will all be in the pool and and and . . . *hyperventilates*

I think I only missed two prompts the last time I did this, and those will show up in comments. And as I said there, it doesn't have to be 24. XF, Silk Stalkings, SVU, Chuck, Buffy/Angel, Star Trek: TNG, whatever.

eta: OH. And super good luck to [personal profile] marinw today:)
leigh57: (7x02 Larry facepalm)
No seriously, I just give up.

Although reading some of the comments almost makes it worth the fact that this "book" exists.

Except not quite, because everything about this makes me want to cry.

[personal profile] adrenalin211 made the astute observation that just as everyone knows the story of how the entire HP series got started with Rowling writing on a napkin in a restaurant, everyone will know the story of how this POS got started as Twatlight fanfic. However, no napkins were harmed in the making of Rowling's production. LE SIGH.
leigh57: (8x10 Renee phone)
So naturally, another meme stolen from lowriseflare:

Ask me a fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Questions can be as wacky as you want. Ask me about tv shows, characters, fanfic in general, fandom issues/meta, anything about any of my stories specifically. Whatever you want.

Help distract me while I dive into the Monday life organization cycle? Ask awesome questions and I'll ask you back! I love these damn things.
leigh57: (Dragon o rly?)
I don't think you should use a spatula for that. )

There is nothing I can add to this, partially because it requires no commentary, but mostly because I'm crying with laughter. Thanks for the link, [personal profile] adrenalin211! And I hope everyone has a fantastic Thursday.

p.s. Oh, oh! A giant thank you to [personal profile] dealan311 for telling me to just block a tumblr user who was truly pissing me off. (I told you I don't know how to use tumblr.) Logic-lacking, idiotic Renee hate begone!
leigh57: (Scully Bitch Please)
Oh, FFS. I just figured out how to screencap DVDs while playing them in VLC.

This is the worst news for my productivity in recent history. I'm supposed to be figuring how to make my little bang plot hang together so that the damn story contains something besides sex and angst! And you know. DOING ALL THE LIFE THINGS.

*stares at huge line of DVDs on bookshelf*

Yikes. Happy Monday to everyone!

fandom: 24
title: Our arms fill with miracles
word count: 927
warnings: Series spoilers, language, AU like woah
a/n: This is for [profile] century_fox, who prompted with, "Come head on, full circle / our arms fill with miracles.” Given that it’s you, Cinna, I’m hoping the fact that it’s almost June won’t squash the Christmas spirit. I will get all of these done eventually. The complete list of prompts is here. Ginormous thanks to [personal profile] adrenalin211 for being a great beta and a cheerleader when I needed one.

The title is taken from 'Go Places,' by The New Pornographers.

Our arms fill with miracles )

In entirely unrelated news, I continue to be amused by the collection of random that is tumblr. It works on my brain in such a strange way. It's a giant collision of funny, hot, thoughtful, weird, clever, pretty, and sometimes downright effing freaky. Also, one of the tags I track is "Jeremy Renner," and seriously, there must be ten posts a minute. I've given up even trying to see them all.

What's up with you guys?
leigh57: (Kiefer&Annie Germany S7 promo)
In the spirit of keeping my brain alive while I try to work out this Christmas fic in my head (I kept the notebook by my bed last night. There are a few sentences in it!), I'm participating in Fic Friday on Twitter, started (for me anyway) by the lovely [personal profile] ladyoflorien.

If you are so inclined, leave me a character or two and any kind of prompt you wish, and I will write you 140 characters of fic about it (minus your user name either on Twitter or here, if you're not on Twitter).

Two things showing what a sheep I am:

1. I made a tumblr. I haven't the vaguest idea how to use it and probably wont, LOL.

2. I have discovered Instagram. You guys, it is so cool and nifty and I feel like such a sheep, because in theory I should show THE MAN by not using it, given that it's owned by Facebook.

Anyway. FRIDAY. And the sun might even be shining. Maybe. What nifty weekend plans does everyone have?
leigh57: (Kiefer they're laughing)
If you need a laugh today and your sense of humor remotely resembles mine, try this:

As soon as I can stop crying with laughter, I'll return to thrilling domesticity. Happy Thursday!
leigh57: (Hearts Colorful)
I blatantly stole this from [personal profile] slumber, because it's too awesome not to. I know this is two posts in one day, but stuff like this fascinates me in terms of psychology. As in, I wonder how differently I come across on LJ than I do in real life? I have friends here from both.

So, could you guys take a minute and fill out my Johari window?

Thanks in advance if you do!

First, I want to pimp this: out of this world | an AU ficathon

[profile] century_fox is running it and there are already some super cool prompts, so if you are so inclined, go forth and leave moar! *coughs at urge to write the Jack/Renee one yet again*

In which I want a cupcake and try to find my brain )

Anyway it's kind of super fun, yet harder than it sounds.

Woah I just spaced out staring at my icon. I need more coffee!

F-list question for today: If you had to pick five songs, right now, and they were the only songs you could listen to for an indefinite period of time, what would those five songs be?
leigh57: (Annie as Angel)
Apparently, I will find posting this el jay as good as having sex.

It's a rainy Monday and I have a billion boring domestic things to do, so I would love some thought distraction while I work on that. Thus, stolen from [profile] lowriseflare:

Leave me a character/pairing for one of the fandoms I write in (or that you think I should), throw in a prompt, and I'll write you some sentences.
leigh57: (8x04 Pensive Renee promo)
I'm doing the early S8 rewatch for 'research' (cue derisive laughter) purposes. AND HOLY SHIT, SHOULDN'T IT GET . . . NOT SO GOOD AT SOME POINT?

I can't even deal with how good Kiefer and Annie are. Sure, all the subplots suck and President Pompadour's hair is ten miles high and his entire family have different accents even though they're all supposed to be from Fakestan BUT I DON'T CARE.

Jack can't even TALK on the comm at the end of 8x05, because he's so spazzed that Renee wants Vlad to shoot her. GUH.

In other news, I am 100% thinking about buying 50 Shades of Grey just so I can speak about it with authority.

In other other news, I really should watch The Avengers, if only to pretend I'm one of the cool kids.

In other other other news, I'm still compiling a fic playlist and always open for recs:)

Happy Mother's Day!
leigh57: (8x07 Jack touching Renee's hair)
I signed up for [community profile] het_bigbang.

I'm still sorting through like five (and I only say five because I picked that number out of a hat) different plot tracks, but I do at least have the mood/theme/setting down in my brain, so that's something. I guess we'll see if I can actually pull it off with RL yanking on me from so many directions.

I realize that this isn't the kind of thing most of you do, but it's a hell of a lot of fun. I mean, there's a 10k option this year:) And if you don't want to do it but know a good place to pimp the community, go for it!

Gah, plane again tomorrow. Wow I hate flying. *breathes*

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
leigh57: (Mulder/Scully The Truth Bed)

Oh lord, the way my flail never dies. Ever. Their faces when they meet. I mean, gah. You don't usually get to see that on a show. Yeah, I got to see it on 24, but that's way different.

And just, EVERYTHING. Dear TV. Whatever you're doing, The X-Files did it first.

If you're interested, here's a link to the 24 segment, in which Kiefer looks insanely hot, as per usual.

There aren't many shows I'll never forget, but dayum. These are certainly two of them. What are your shows you'll never forget? Top five maybe?

leigh57: (8x07 Renee is really pissed)
So I'm kind of fuming about this roundup of various authors' sentiments re: fanfiction.

Stephenie Meyer, please stop talking.

Do you guys have thoughts on this? Is fanfic any different when it's written about books than when it's written about TV or movies? My personal opinion is that as long as nobody is making any money (I absolutely believe that no one should profit from characters or ideas that someone else has created) on the enterprise, all these authors should be flattered that people care enough about their stuff to want to take it to different places.

WHATEVER. I'm going for a run before the predicted six days of rain set in, then boring domestic crap and *fingers crossed* hopefully a bit of inspiration so that I can finally finish my Christmas fics. And I wouldn't object at all if [personal profile] adrenalin211 and [personal profile] sardonicynic finished their Christmas fics either. What, are you having a life or something? :P

Also, due to a meme I got from [profile] tanyareed, I'm trying to think up five characters whose names begin with T in order to comment on them. If you guys have suggestions, let me know! And I hope everyone has a lovely, relaxing weekend.
