I have nothing to post about, so meme it is!

Meme! )

The Obscure Subjects Post

The Royal Wedding is Upon Us. Lord help us all. A couple of friends of mine are coming over so we can mock watch the proceedings on TV. And if the weather's nice, we might swing by the city, see if there's anything fun going on in the aftermath.

I can't stop watching Kdramas. )

I will gladly take recs!

Meme! Day 05. Just the one because I can't be bothered to find images and this one really doesn't need one. )

Summer is for catching up on TV - old and new

For some reason, May seems to be a big reading month for me. I read 25 books in May, but when June rolled around, my reading mojo started failing me, so instead I turned to Kdramas. I just finished Coffee Prince, so Personal Taste, here I come!

But that's not really going to occupy me for long, especially not at the rate I'm going. Therefore, A POLL!

That's right, RADIO BUTTONS. Ticky boxes are for sissies.

Now that everyone else is finishing up their 30 days meme, I figured I'd start on mine. Though since I don't post often enough to finish this until 2012, I'm gonna do a few at a time and pretty much when I feel like it instead of in every entry. MEME! )

Icon meme!

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

(I'm actually thinking of making this icon my default, that's how much I like it...and how tired I am of my current default. =)

Memes galore!

01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their livejournal.
(02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper.)
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this. The point is to see what you had on.

I use WallMaster, so this is only one of many wallpapers I use (it changes every thirty minutes), but it is the only one actually made for my screen resolution (1920x1080), and as such, is pretty much the only one that actually looks good. I did grab a bunch of Star Trek wallpapers from the official site that I could put up, but that would involve some cropping (they were not 16:9), and I'm lazy, so...

So, my vacation is over. I didn't do what I had intended to do, but that's okay, because I dabbled in some retail therapy. And I haven't loved anything as much as I love these two things in a looong time.

a few of my favorite things... )

And now I think I'm going to go watch Crichton Kicks, because I finally finished season 3 of Farscape (it only took me...what? Two months or so? After a six month hiatus after finishing season 2? I'm just powering through this rewatch, aren't I? /sarcasm)

Odd number says we walk away now

I meant to post this icon meme over a week ago. Um, oops? MEME! )

The Amazing Race )

Project Runway Canada )

Last Friday, when I was on the way to the subway, A & B Song came on my mp3 player, and I was seized by this unstoppable wave of nostalgia, and I knew I had to start up my Farscape rewatch again (I had just finished season 2 when I took a, six months ago or so). But first I had to rewatch the vid that made me have the Farscape flashback and I'd forgotten something: I think it's all wrong )

Happy Day 3: Okay, I'm the saddest person ever, but discovering the Stay on Top and Opacity functions on the Stickies program that Tissa linked to the other week made me practically giddy today. I LOVE this application.

Other things making me happy today:

  • It was my last day working in the office until next year. Because I took the coming two weeks off, the week after that I'm working from home, and the week after that it'll be January 5th, 2009.

  • It's going to be 2009 soon! This miserable excuse for a year is finally coming to an end. About freakin' time.

  • The second episode of Leverage aired! Not that I've had time to watch it, mind you, but at least it aired.

Happy Day 2: Spoilery for How I Met Your Mother. )

Dec. 8th, 2008

I've become (re-)obsessed with online games. Mostly puzzle games. Some of my favorites from the past few weeks:

  • Word Bubbles. Not at all a puzzle game, but a word game. [info]poshcat linked it last week or so, and I've been playing it daily since. I LOVE THIS ONE.

  • Atomica. This is a lot like Clines (which came in real handy when my internet was down at work the other day).

  • Tower Builder. I was obsessed with this one a month or so ago.

So, anyone got any online game recs? Time-waster recs, if you will.

So, [info]dianora2 had this meme.
1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same.

Happy Day 1: I set up my new work computer today, and thanks to the replies in my last post, it worked like a charm! Oh my god, having all my passwords, my extensions, my Clippings, my autofills right there at my fingertips in a few seconds flat? HEAVENLY. And then I spent the afternoon translating The Office (season 1), and watching/proof reading Dead Like Me and Monk. It was a pretty damn good work day, let me tell you. The boss even brought in some pastry for the afternoon coffee tea break. =)

I'm not tagging anyone, this is more to force myself to post every day for 7 days straight. Let's see if I can keep it up!

Some TV:


Billable Hours season 1 )

Of the two comedies about mean people I've been watching lately, I have to say, I prefer It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia )

Fandom can be awesome. And not.

So, this latest fandom debacle finally got me to read up more on OTW, and now I can't wait for this thing to get off the ground! )

I finally figured out how to cap on my new computer (I kinda had to figure it out, my old computer was dying by degrees), and it was as simple as using an older version of PowerDVD. So I've done just a tiiiiny bit of capping. More to come, though.

1x17 - The Skull in the Desert

Pushing Daisies
1x04 - Pigeon

In other news, I've been looking around the icon communities, trying to get inspired (which hasn't worked, FYI, my main inspiration right now remains BLUE), and I noticed this meme going around, and I'd love it if you'd participate:

Tell me your Top Ten of my icons.

(You can find the recent ones here. Old icons are in my tags. Feel free to link directly.)

Hump day. More like down-in-the-dumps day.

Just to show that not all of us are pikers. ;-)

That Empire magazine top 50 TV shows meme. )

I was thinking about buying myself a video game system and I'm not sure what to get. In the past I've bought Nintendo systems, but Wii seems to be pretty expensive, not to mention the fact that whenever I look at games, they seem to be more expensive too. And since my brother has an Xbox, I was thinking of getting me one of those. I would imagine they're pretty cheap by now and I can borrow a ton of games from him. Anyone got any advice? Other considerations?

Why is it only Wednesday? I started out thinking Monday was Tuesday, so I was a day ahead of schedule before the week even began. And now it feels like it's been at least a six day work week already. *sigh*

Of 'ships and OTPs

That 'shippy poll thing everyone's doing )

Oh man, I was really out of it last night when I posted the picspam (no wonder, it was 4.30 am). I forgot an entire panel! And I even removed the network logos from the caps and everything (from PLAID! Plaid is evil), but then I forgot! And now it just seems silly to go back and add it.

I've gotten my old computer up and running, strictly for capping, so I've been doing some of that:
