seriousy random post + small leave of absence  
1. *waves* Hi! Sorry for being disgustingly MIA this last week but I barely found a minute to sit down.

2. lasamy and pnr left respectively yesterday and today. ;_; it has been awesome! ♥

3. Okay, I think I'm caught up with almost all the comments I owed on this journal. I'll be finished with comments I owe in a short while, I hope. And maybe I'll manage to read some stuff for desperate luau catching up.

4. So, my mom's friends which lent us the house last year invited her for the weekend and I'm tagging along. Mostly because it's cool and it has a pool, after walking around all this city for nine days I'm dead tired and I can use three days off. Which means that I won't have an Internet connection in 99% of the possibilities, but maybe it'll actually be better because I'll just bring my laptop along with the luau requests I missed and instead of procrastinating I'll sit down and write.

5. Comma to point #4: I'm also counting on the three internet-less days to finish my Dean/Cas Secret Angels exchange fic (which right now stands at... uh, I dunno but definitely less than two pages) or at least to get most of it done. But since I wouldn't want to send it over without a beta reading first (also because if I get one characterization wrong then it won't stand on its feet), is there anyone who could give that a look towards, uhm, the mid of next week (I hope around Wednesday)? It'd be probably NC17 rated (or hard R, but my idea would be NC17) and.. er, I think it should end up being around 7500 words or so, but knowing yours truly there's a good chance it could get longer. And I need to have it sent before August 8th, even if I'd rather like to send it at least four-five days before. I don't think I'll end up having anything that should require warnings or disturbing stuff, but staying general, it'd be amnesia fic. Thanks in advance if anyone could do it. ;) ♥

6. I've been having a crime-shows Misha Collins marathon this afternoon, mostly because I needed to shut my brain off. Basically, CSI Las Vegas, CSI NY, NCSI, Without A Trace and Close To Home. In short: CSI Las Vegas still won't do anything for me but Russian accent = HOT, NCSI = not impressed but he was priceless, Without A Trace = nice look and shirt, totally not impressed with the show, Close To Home = still have to finish it but it's worth it just because the first shot it's him playing drums in a Christian band playing in churches, CSI NY = actually I kind of like the show, but the best thing = Misha speaking Italian at a certain point. Looks like I was the only one who didn't know about that but well, pnr will testify that my reaction was undignified. Damn it was.

7. Best news of the week: IAN SOMERHALDER IS ON TWITTER. He's verified too. Apart from his profile description being priceless, if it turns out that he's the kind answering to twitters I'll probably die of flail. (Well, I was completely flailing while twittering him at all but still.) And I'm actually seriously excited for the vampire thing which is actually getting good recs. Which is scary.

8. Vampire thing speaking, this promo will be the death of me. Putting it on my desktop was NOT a smart idea. Doesn't mean I'm changing it anytime soon.

9. Thanks to pnr I've seen the Firefly pilot and I really liked it. Which means, I'll be downloading it. After all, it's fourteen episodes. Despite my serious fail at catching up with stuff, it can't be that hard.

10. Okay, I think I'm forgetting stuff but I have to go packing and then finish to read the tabs I had open, leave some comments I owe and finishing catching up with the ones I owe on this journal, so bye for now! *waves* And don't post too much while I'm gone. ;)

Come fai a sapere che è IL VERO Ian S?? O_O
the female ghost of tom joad: j2janie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 05:53 pm (UTC)
L'ha confermato qualcuno della CW, penso il regista di vampire diaries (o il produttore, qualcosa del genere) che ha un twitter pure lui ed è confermato dal network. ;)

Between Bruce, Misha and Ian, are you sure you have not died and gone to fangirl heaven?

Enjoy your weekend away!

P.S. When you get back to reading there is a special nod to you in my latest fic, J.A.C.O.B. I think you will like it!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost boone OMG THE PRETTYjanie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 05:54 pm (UTC)
Ha, I didn't because otherwise they'd be in front of me, but I almost did. ;)

Thank you!

And HA, that fic is so the one I'm reading as soon as I close my backpack. I squeed when seeing the header the last day, I can't wait to get there.

LOL grazie ♥
Fangirlage like WHOA.: SPN // Mish - Twitter #mishappreciationhopelessfangirl on July 24th, 2009 05:42 pm (UTC)
LOL I saw you freak out about Italian-speaking Misha on Twitter. ♥ I definitely need to watch more Misha things. The only thing I've watched is some clips of him on ER, and I actually remember him on it now that I see it again. =D


Dude, you have to update with thoughts on Firefly as you watch it. That show is made of so much win I can't even begin to describe it. I'm 98% sure it's my favourite Joss Whedon show (and I'm a fan of all of his shows). ♥

the female ghost of tom joadjanie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 05:57 pm (UTC)
Seriously, I was SO not expecting that. I was SO not. And then I started flailing like a mad thing, thankfully pnr watches SPN too and she didn't kill me on the spot, lol.

Ha, ER is the only one I'm lacking (and 24 too but those ones I'll buy at the newsstand, they're out here right now) even if I've seen those clips on YT. He's on... uuh, CSI NY 4x01, CSI Las Vegas 5x13, Close To Home 2x08, NCSI 6x03 and Without A Trace I thiiink in season five, I can't remember the number. The CSI NY one is kinda the best overall imo, but I'm not a general fan of that kind of shows so I might be biased.


Oh, I'll so do it! As soon as it's downloaded I'll totally start watching.
Zelda: Zoe/Wash Lovezelda_zee on July 24th, 2009 05:48 pm (UTC)
You've never watched Firefly??!!! How did that happen?? I LOVE Firefly to death. It's my favorite Joss show and one I tend to re-watch more than any other show. I hope you like it!

I can beta your Dean/Cas fic, if you want.

Have a nice, restful time on your mini-vacation!
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 05:59 pm (UTC)
Heee, it happened because... it never aired here, mostly. ;) I mean, I thiiink it might have aired on cable but not on TV and it isn't out on DVD whatsoever and I just never got the chance. But I really loved the pilot! And AWW, the two in your icon! *loves them*

And YAY, thank you! It'd be awesome if you could. I'll be sending it mid-next week if everything goes according to plan.

Thanks! I sure hope I will. ;)
pnr on July 24th, 2009 05:58 pm (UTC)
I totally need a few days off as well. Are city vacations suppose to be followed by a vacation in bed? XD

also, I take it I'm the fucked up LJ coding and yes to all of you out there: she flailed so hard AND we had to rewind and watch the scene again.

and you go watch the rest of Firefly RIGHT AWAY YOUNG LADY! (in that good non-italian lady sense ^.~ Btw, did you notice that the Americans in the restaurant with the two kids trying to walk straight called us ladies? XD Well the mom did. Saying something like "The ladies at the next table are laughting at you" ... which we were. Oh I never explained why they were doing it as I said I would! The boy had had wine for dinner and his sister thought he was drunk and made him walk in a straight line to prove he wasn't. And it went down hill form there)
ok, that was way OT but yes, Firefly. It's seriously a really easy show to just watch in like three days XD and remember to finish of with Serenity (the movie that is, not the pilot we watched) ^^
Because as everyone says... Firefly is made of so much love and win.
the female ghost of tom joad: loljanie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 06:10 pm (UTC)
Uh yeah you were the screwed tag *fixes it*

LOL, they probably do. Mine will be spent half in a pool and half with a laptop but I figure that's more or less the same thing.

And ha, well, I'll bring it on vacation if it's done tonight. Probably it won't though, but I'm watching that as soon as I actually have it. And ah, LOL, I hadn't caught that at all and omg what a figure... but whatever. They were funny. ;)

pnr on July 24th, 2009 07:02 pm (UTC)
my weekend will be spent in front of the computer I think. Watching stuff and urgh, gotta write that concert review and edit pictures (I probably have like 500 pictures of architecture XD)

I enjoyed eaves dropping (I mean when one of the first things they discuss is Star Trek? XD), it was nice hearing English being spoken lilke that you know? And yeah, they were totally funny. Some dinner entertainment yay! *laugh*
Janicejaydblu on July 24th, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
That picture of Ian is awfully pretty! ;) Just a hint of skin, yes?
the female ghost of tom joad: ian somerhalder valentinejanie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 10:16 pm (UTC)
The RIGHT hint of skin I dare say. Jesus. I won't survive three episodes of that thing, I'll die of flailing a lot earlier.

Thanks so much! :) and OMG YOUR ICON! *LOL*

Glad you had such an awesome week; enjoy your relaxing break! Excitement is exhausting, and at least you're planning to use it productively. ^_^

I don't watch any of the CSIs, but I am totally hunting those episodes down now.
the female ghost of tom joad: misha collins is awesomejanie_tangerine on July 24th, 2009 10:35 pm (UTC)
Heee, thank you! Yeah, I think I'll need that. And I'll need to write a heck of a lot, but when I don't do it for a while usually I manage to do a lot. *crosses fingers*

Ha, I actually hate Las Vegas and Miami, but I have to say that New York is good. Maybe it's because there's Gary Sinise in it and I love him, but that one was pretty good on its own. Also, MISHA IS TOTALLY WORTH IT ANYWAY.

sdhashdajlk Misha speaking Italian what? *_*

the female ghost of tom joad: misha collins is awesomejanie_tangerine on July 27th, 2009 11:49 pm (UTC)
Heee, on CSI NY episode 4x01 aka BEST THING EVER. That's what makes NY superior to the other two IMHO, lol.

And I so will watch it when I'm done downloading! ♥

Oh, that is one beautiful pic of Ian. I'm looking forward to his new show, even though I probably won't see it till next year sometime...

And Firefly! It's awesome and you'll love it all! Jayne's hat is made of win, esp!
the female ghost of tom joad: ian somerhalder valentinejanie_tangerine on July 27th, 2009 11:51 pm (UTC)
That picture is just... *drools shamelessly* I don't have the slightest idea whether they'll air it here at all so I'll just download that. I'm too impatient. ;)

And ha, good to know! Right now I thiiink I'm leaning towards Mal but I've only seen the pilot so I might change idea. ;)
a geek in such the wrong way: lost-boone-closeuphaldoor on July 28th, 2009 10:51 am (UTC)
Ah, I just meant Jayne has the most adorable hat! Personally I lean towards Mal myself, with a little slashy interest in Simon with him (although I have written one Mal/Jayne, surprisingly!). The whole thing is made of win, though!
Lou: Firefly - LOLZgottalovev on July 26th, 2009 06:48 pm (UTC)
I LOVE that promo shot. now, how can you get anything done if you put it as a wallpaper?

ohhh, Firefly is love. ♥ it's so sad that they didn't give it more time.
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on July 27th, 2009 11:52 pm (UTC)
... Well, I DON'T get anything done when I see my desktop. I kinda stare at it for like five minutes before doing what I should actually do, lol. ;)

I'll watch it asap!
