catching up entry with a lot of memes and stuff  
Or, hi, this is the way long entry that I always end up doing when I don't update for two weeks.

1. Hii! *waves* how are things going? Between LJ not notifying me stuff and RL things clearly I've been around even less, but I think I might be caught up on notifications, or most of them, so expect a backlog of comments.

2. That said, RL is going nicely enough. I had a lovely time with wandersfound which included her experiencing the true Italian driving (which wasn't exactly flattering for me, but whatever), the both of us getting stuck in my elevator for some ten minutes before my dad and another guy basically forced the doors open by mere force and walking around a damn lot. Then thankfully all the classes I'm taking this round are good and in two cases on three I'm actually interested, so since I really didn't have much choice I won't be the one complaining. Now I should bring myself to study some before May, maybe.

3. Since I wanted to try the new camera, I did that what's in your bag meme that was around last week.

1. Take a picture of your bag.
2. Now dump everything out and neatly adjust them, and take a picture (no matter how embarrassing).
3. Talk about the items inside.





There's no cellphone as I always keep it in my pocket rather than in my bag. Anyway, from left to right, from the top.

a) convenient packet of tissues. This might be present during summer as well, or it might not.
b) random 'currently being read book', that in this case is also convenientely slim. Right now it's also saying that I'm trying to fill my Vonnegut gap since I could have read a lot more of his books.
c) Moleskine notebook which is made for music stuff. Right now the best thing about it is that it has an entire section for playlists which means I can plan fanmixes in it, but it's pretty useful.
d) Random small notebook that I bought in the Edimburgh airport while trying not to fall asleep at five AM. I don't use it much but it's good for random notes.
e) identity card.
f) wallet.
g) mp3 reader, which is by the way named Jimmy. (If it had a surname it'd be Novak. Yeah, yeah.)
h) small holder for pens/pencils. I have probably four pens, one pencil and an highlighter inside it.
i) keys for the house.
j) small planner, which I use very randomly but I need to force myself to use it. It'd be useful, if I just didn't forget to write stuff in it.
k) card holder. Meaning I use it for stuff like bookshop cards, the public transport subscription etc. etc. I'm not putting cards in my wallet since I had another one stolen ages ago and it was hell to block everything.
l + m) random pens that didn't fit in the holder. Apparently I can't go around if I don't have like five pens with me.

Everyone probably has realized already that I like pink things, probably. Also in that moment I didn't have my usual notebook where I also took notes during JIB last year, but it's usually inside as well.

4. And since I didn't work on my procrastinating on fic habit, I did that WIP meme as well even if I'm late-ish. Long list, but since my titles are mostly cracked out maybe it'll be half fun to read. Also some of these are actually done already and I had forgotten to post them, wtf.
Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

the dystopian one where jimmy lives on a goddamn tree.doc [--> okay that's my apocabb fic so it will appear at some point XD]

... I'm half-sure there's a lot of stuff missing but if I have no idea where said stuff is then I doubt I'll ever finish it. Now I should probably post the four on that list that are done, but... whatever. That's how I name my documents. Shows how many times I actually have titles already.

5. Remember when I said I'd have like there to be a comprehensive Dark Tower community around? We're (as, I'm XD) working on that. I need to be out of town for two days from tomorrow so I probably won't start spamming you with stuff before the end of the week but it'll exist very soon. *crosses fingers*

5b. Related to that: NEW DARK TOWER BOOK OUT NEXT YEAR. This makes me SO HAPPY I CAN'T EVEN. NEW DARK TOWER OMG YESSS. Mostly: new DT that includes more Eddie, which is totally awesome enough because it means I can ignore the movie news. And since it's pre DTVII I can totally ignore what happened in the last two hundred pages.

6. So I haven't managed to catch up with the last SPN ep reviews, but I thought it was a very good episode but goddammit why if you kill someone I don't like you need to kill someone else I like to go with them? I mean, I won't be the one missing anti-wrinkle cream soup, but I didn't mind Gwen and OMG RUFUS BRB WEEPING FOREVER ;__________; I sorta was spoiled so I didn't break down cursing but dammit why killing all the cool people, whyyy. Also Jensen looked prettier than usual. Also I'm pretty sure that the situation with some evil thing being inside one person and no one knowing inside whom it was came from some movie that I'm sure I've seen but I can't remember what the heck it was. Was that the John Carpenter version of The Thing? Idk it's been bugging me since seeing that episode but I'm pretty sure it was it. Also who else was doing Bobby/Rufus^? *hides* because I kind of was. Anyway between that and the title my 'omg I love references' self was very happy. I thought it was a good episode. Which I'd have totally liked better if Rufus didn't have to bite it.

And dammit when is April 22nd or whenever it is that they air the western episode? Because I want it like burning.

7. Since I don't have anything more worthwhile to say except complaining about my own procrastination, and since I need to learn to use that new camera of mine, I'll recycle a meme I did some six months ago.

1. Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life you're curious about
2. Leave your requests as comments to this entry
3. Please look at the previous requests as to not do repeats
4. I'll snap the pictures and post them.


8. Aaand that was it. *goes back to staring at WIP folder*

I haven't updated in at least two weeks too!!!! I feel your pain.

okay, picture, take a pic of the oldest building near your home, or your street or something, because I'd love to soak up the history of that country seeing as I'll probably never get there to see it myself.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on March 14th, 2011 01:37 pm (UTC)
I should do it more often, I should.

And mmm I think I might have a good one for that. I mean, I live in a zone that was mostly built in the 50s so it isn't exactly shining with Roman ruins but I might have a church that would do the job. XD
inthekeyofd: Stock-Heart-boundaryinthekeyofd on March 14th, 2011 01:54 pm (UTC)
Believe me anything would be perfectly and absolutely fine.

OMG, I swear I would probably waste away there, I'd spend all my time looking at everything so much I'd forget to eat, okay maybe I wouldn't waste away...but I'd definitely forget to eat at least one meal :)

I'm a sponge for history, unfortunately it doesn't really nourish the body :)

I love the purse memes. So much PINK!

My love for pink isn't a mystery but I think that my purse totally makes it obvious. ;)

PIIIIIIIIIINK! \o/

Jo/Cas and Jimmy/Cas/Dean? I'M NOT SURE WHICH OF THESE I SHOULD BE MORE EXCITED ABOUT. I never thought much about Jo/Cas until I read this one the end!verse fic and um yeah. That totally works. And Jimmy/Cas/Dean and any variation thereof is always glorious, so I'll be sitting over here patiently waiting for the day when you finish that. :D

the dystopian one where jimmy lives on a goddamn tree
Poor Jimmy. I shall be waiting on this too but if it's half as angsty as the one your wrote me for Five Acts I'm going to end up as a big, weepy mess. In a good way.

OKAY I WANT THIS YESTERDAY.

Re: SPN -- RUFUS. ;___; I'd been pretty much spoiled and expecting it but still. They are killing way too many awesome people this season and I'm officially scared for the ones that are left. Namely Balthazar, but OMG NO THEY CAN'T DO THAT TO ME. And I'm a little worried about Cas too but I very much prefer not to think about that possibility.

And yes. The western episode. It cannot be time for that soon enough. :D

PINK IS GOOD!

Lol dear the Jo/Cas thing was born out of a twitter conversation where me and someone else were like 'if Cas really had to pop his cherry with a recurring girl THEN JO WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER THAN MEG' but I'll finish it at some point. And ha the Jimmy/Dean/Cas one is supposed to be for a birthday so I -will- finish it at some point. As soon as I plot it out.

Buaha that one is the apocabb fic so it'll most surely be posted some time next month. Aaaand uhm, on one side it's angstier and someone dies (not Jimmy though) but on the other it ends a lot more nicely so.. idk sorry in advance if you weep. ;)

I also swear I will finish that Lost one. WHEN I PLOT THEM. I swear I need to know how to end a story if I want to finish it..

RUUUFUUUS ;__________________; *WEEPS LIKE A PROFESSIONAL WEEPER* and yeah I mean Balthy is the only one still around by now *hides him from writers' wrath* and ha ohdear let's not even take that Cas option into consideration, okay? Let's... I CAN'T TAKE THE IDEA SO I WON'T TAKE IT INTO CONSIDERATION *nods*.

I know? I want it so muuuch.
joy: spn ♰ crafty boys [© e0wyn]joyyjpg on March 14th, 2011 02:28 pm (UTC)
'if Cas really had to pop his cherry with a recurring girl THEN JO WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER THAN MEG
DUDE. I KNOW RIGHT? Anyone would be better than Meg. I'm saying. Bring Anna back or something. I never shipped that but it would at least make some sense -- and if it came between Cas/Anna and Cas/Meg I would hop on Ship Cas/Anna faster than you can say "we're not supposed to talk about it."

Well, as long as Jimmy does't die, I think I can deal. :)

I swear I need to know how to end a story if I want to finish it
Pfff, okay how many half-finished fics are sitting around on my computer because I can figure out how I want them to end? A lot. I am no good at this. *facepalm*

I'm going to be pissed if Balthy bites it, not even gonna lie. Just once I'd like one of my favorite side characters to stick around for the long haul and not die. And OKAY YES KILLING CAS IS A HORRIBLE, BLASPHEMOUS, UNTHINKABLE IDEA SO LALALALA LET'S JUST FORGET I SAID ANYTHING. ;____;
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural + nick cave = otpjanie_tangerine on March 14th, 2011 03:02 pm (UTC)
I know? Heck I'd have had Ellen on her. Or Anna as well, at least it'd have made sense. Just ANYTHING BUT MEG seriously. Just, ugh.

And haha nope he doesn't die but beware, a friend of mine who loves angsty stuff and whose favorite SPN moment ever was Sam dying for the first time and to whom I told the plot was like 'OMG BUT THAT'S CRUEL', so don't breathe out in relief too much. ;)

And ha I know really? I hate when I want to plot things and then I fail. Because otherwise I'm pretty fast. *sigh*

OH HELL YEAH I'LL BE TOO. They already offed Ash who's arguably my favorite character in SPN ever with Cas, so yeah dnw to lose anyone else for now. AND YEAH LET'S JUST GO AL LALALALA AND NOT MIND ABOUT IT Y/Y?
thandiethandie on March 14th, 2011 05:19 pm (UTC)
NEW DT. WHAT. WHAT. NEXT YEAR?! WHAT.

OMG, I don't know if I can make it to next year, I DON'T KNOW. FUUUUUCK.

(So, clever little SK thought he would sell a shitload of new DT now that a TV-series - or whatever that's gonna be - is about to be made...not that I complain. :D)

Totally OT: Also, as I'm a bit tv-orphan lately, I thought I would check this Community show, but I don't see anyone in my f-list talking about it...do you know anything about it? I'm so ignorant and I don't even know whom to ask, lol. It seemed cute.
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower >> rolandjanie_tangerine on March 14th, 2011 06:46 pm (UTC)
YEEESSS NEXT YEAR AND IT'LL BE THE TIME I PRE-ORDER IT IN HARDBACK OR SOMETHING. I NEED TO HAVE THAT THING. I NEEDED IT FIVE YEARS AGO AT LEAST.

(and yeah, exactly. Or at least, that since it's highly probable that it might not be a good adaptation he's giving us more so that at least we have that.)

I haven't seen it but a bunch of people in my FL do. From what I gathered it's pretty funny even if last season was more even than this one, and I also saw some clips online which were adorable. Also it's a sitcom so it wouldn't take much to catch up with it I guess, but that's all I know.
thandie: th carthandie on March 14th, 2011 07:56 pm (UTC)
I'm so freaking excited about that series that I'll have to watch it anyway, even if it sucks. I wonder if there are news about the casting, but I think not...? I have been already horrified enough at seeing Dylan Dog's American adaption, now I'm pessimistic about everything. (Personal opinion, and I have no idea about the movie, I just disliked the trailer.)

Oh, I've seen the first episode and I must say it's pretty adorable! I also identify with one of the 'losers', which might or might NOT be a good thing, whatever. The lead is pretty hot in a snarky way too...ok I guess I'm going from fishing info about the show to recommending it back to you in the space of a comment!

(I've found very handy dl links, in case you should be interested.)
the female ghost of tom joad: dark tower eddie has the best quotesjanie_tangerine on March 14th, 2011 11:29 pm (UTC)
UGH DON'T TALK ME ABOUT DYLAN PLEASE. I've been reading that comic for... pretty much more than half of my life (I'm almost 23 and I started at 10) and whenever I hear 'Dylan Dog the movie' I die inside a little. Not really joking there. That trailer was puke-worthy and from what I know if I ever watch it entirely I won't make through the end without a healthy dose of swearing. :////

Uhm, shows that I have strong feelings about it, huh? But yeah I'll end up seeing the DT stuff anyway. I'm pretty sure I won't like it but whatever, can't be worse than that Dylan crap. (GET RUPERT EVERETT DAMMIT.)

Oh, good to know! I might check it out once I'm done going through a couple shows I should have finished like two years ago *hides*. ;)
Lou: Millagottalovev on March 14th, 2011 05:33 pm (UTC)
heee, much pink! that's awesome. you guys have very organized bags, I'll start to think you are all neat freaks. My backpack is a MESS, you have no idea. it would take a whole table to display everything in it.

and wow, long list of WIPs! I must admit that I laughed out loud at certain titles, especially

deancasWHATTHEFUUUUUCK.doc

and

franksawyermilesrichardromcomomgwtf.doc

(you are hilarious!)
the female ghost of tom joad: pink!!!janie_tangerine on March 14th, 2011 06:43 pm (UTC)
I like to live surrounded by as much pinkness as I can. ;) and it looks neatr, but when it's actually inside the bag it isn't that organized...

And haha whenever I wrote Boone/Charlie the files were all named teamdeadandawesome or a variation of that XD except that those aren't WIPS.. but if you're that curious about the first one it was mea friend of mine prompting me to write a fic where you had Dean, Cas and a plant and it's actually finished, but I have no idea of what the heck is it or how to title it or even if it has sense so it's been a WIP since the S4 hiatus, lol. But I'll pride myself on having hilarious file titles. ;) Then the problem is when I have to name them for real. XD

Creature Of Hobbit: boone: ropestellshannon815 on March 14th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
You want to hear something weird? I was only thinking about that chests fic the other day, I have no idea what put it into my head! How far are you on with it?
the female ghost of tom joad: lost boone bondagejanie_tangerine on March 14th, 2011 11:26 pm (UTC)
Haha seriously? That's kind of awesome! :D

Aaand hahahha good question. In theory I have like 7000 words of it, but they were still putting the whole team together. I mean, they still hadn't found all the people who were supposed to striptease. Idk if I'll ever get around to actually finish it but I kind of really don't want it to be left there so ask me in a while and we'll see. ;)

That's probably good for your back. XD Mine kind of hates me...

You need to be my best friend. I never have a pen and I always need to borrow one.

Take a picture of your bathroom!
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on March 16th, 2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
Considering that I have at least three anytime then you're set. ;) I just need to move to Australia then! Or you can come here, though I'd advise to wait until the next elections. XD

Lol, sure!
ozmissage: SPN. Bobby.ozmissage on March 15th, 2011 07:02 pm (UTC)
This one sounds awesome: franksawyermilesrichardromcomomgwtf.doc. :D

I'm still bitter over losing Rufus. He was so cool. I want to know more about the time he spent hunting with Bobby. Then again, I always want to know more about Bobby. The western episode looks very cool though! Cas in the wild west is a thing I need in my life.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural bobbyjanie_tangerine on March 16th, 2011 05:53 pm (UTC)
One day I will finish it. Basically it was Frank and Sawyer trying to hook up the other two while sharing a house, lol. I just totally failed at plotting the middle, but I'll go back to it at some point.

RUFUS :(((( HE WAS SO AWESOME. I loved his face. And yeah why always killing off the cool ones? I wanted more of him and Bobby as well. They were so bffs. And omg I need that episode in my life right now.

LJ? What is this place?

Pink? Well, yes, your layouts usually have something pink in them. And the Misha icons. But that might just be that MC = pink. But I see others, too? Okay, congrats - you now officially = pink icons. (ozmissage = yellow icons.)

Ahahahah, your file names. (deancasWHATTHEFUUUUUCK.doc XD) I think that when one posts the names of one's works in progress, one is obliged to answer questions about them? Tell me about the WTF!romcom? :)

Your bag... How's your wardrobe? Dare photograph that?
the female ghost of tom joad: pink!!!janie_tangerine on March 18th, 2011 10:18 am (UTC)
My layouts are always pink-ish. ;) But yeah Misha is also very pink himself. Oh whatever I'm okay with being an official pink icons person! :D

My file names mostly express my feelings at the moment I save the document, lol. The wtfromcom? Sure! Basically Sawyer, Frank, Miles & Richard all live together post finale, there's Miles/Richard UST everywhere and so Sawyer and Frank are like fuck it, we're hooking them up. Except that I didn't plan how and I'm still at that point. XD

I can photograph it but I doubt much will be distinguishable... ;)
A.: team free willvella_amor_dm on March 19th, 2011 01:37 pm (UTC)
hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! :D *glomps*

3. you have a lot of notepads in your bag o.O

4. favourite title: 'he dystopian one where jimmy lives on a goddamn tree.doc", but i am also intrigued by 'CHESTS!!!!.doc'

6. i haven't seen that movie... a lot of people were talking about the resemblance to the X-Files ep called ice i think. i've never seen it so i didn't pick that up. for me, it sounded like the worm mindbug thing from the Deltora Quest sequel trilogy by Emily Rodda ;) so basically, the writers can't come up with original ideas -_-

7. um... your favourite item of clothing, something treasured that you have kept for 10 years or more, aaaaaand your bookshelf! :D
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on March 19th, 2011 01:48 pm (UTC)
HIIIIIIIIII! :D <3

3. Errr yeah. My back doesn't appreciate it much, but I need them. XD

4. Lol that's my apocabigbang! It's... well. It's what the title says. ;) And chests was basically a Lost AU where all the good-looking men on the island started stripping Full Monty style. I really need to finish it sometime soon.

6. RIIIGHT, it was the X-Files ep too! I went to check the plot for that movie and I remembered right, there was the exact same situation, but I think the X-Files ep did the same thing and so yeah they probably stole from both. ORIGINALITY, WRITERS, WE LIKE IIITTTT.

7. Sounds good! :D and hahaha my bookshelves, you'll have fun. XD
A.vella_amor_dm on March 19th, 2011 03:12 pm (UTC)
4. can't wait to read it :) ah, i see. i've never watched Lost but your plot sounds interesting XD

7. i assume that you have a lot of books lol
