Review: Sherlock, "A Study in Pink", 1.01

On the advice of a friend, I decided to give the American premiere of Sherlock a try.

I'm the closest thing he has to a friend...Collapse )

The icon says it all.

I am taking a WoW break because, as it turns out, I am a, big sigh, delicate flower and cannot handle ex-guild drama trauma. Woe! As the icon says, emotions suck, even if they're fantasyland, cartoon ones. So I said to myself, "Rom, you can always just gtfo." Oh, haha, yeah.

*flounces like a little girl*

As for fannish things, I did watch the season finale of Mad Men, am watching Boardwalk Empire (although, I cannot seem to get *involved* in it). Everything else, I'm hopelessly behind and a little lost.

*desperately needs a hug and big mug of tea*

So, um, how are things on LJ these days? Hi! *waves*

ETA: Spoilers for Boardwalk Empire in comments.

She has a math degree!

First off, I would like to thank the people who wished me a happy birthday, and a special thank you to svgurl for the lovely bear on my profile. I owe comments like an owing thing.

Second off, I would like to thank the person who nominated me for the WFAs 2009 (for one of only 2 stories that I posted that year). I'm almost embarassed since I've been gone for so long, but thank you for remembering me.

I'm more than a little confused as to the migration to Dreamwidth. Apparently LJ is doing Bad Things? I haven't really been around to understand. I have a permanent account here and my financial situation now is such as I can't really afford *another* journal account. I guess I'll just have to track everyone down.

Fannish things:

I've been watching Mad Men but haven't been able to coalesce any thinky thoughts.

I've also been watching The Guild because I have a short attention span these days (webisodes, yay!) and Felicia Day is *adorable*! She is, it's true! They also have two music vids out:

Do You Want to Date My Avatar?Collapse )

Game OnCollapse )

Eep, I've never tried to embed video before, my apologies if this messes up your reading list.

But hugs to all! *waves*

Lost and broken. Please fix.

I don't know why I thought I'd be able to jump right back into fandom. Just feel sort of...lost. Adrift. But I'm feeling lost in general, so that's okay? The velocity of fandom exceeds time itself? Not sure.


Yep, my squee button broke. Need to get that fixed.

Okay, confession time, I have had some spare time in the past year or so. Admittedly not as much as before, but some. And that time has been spent playing WoW. World of Warcraft. It all started so innocently. Mr. Romany said, "Hey, Rom, you might like this, give it a try." Next thing I know, I'm running end-game content, knee-deep in a guild, with my mouse hand turning into a claw on raid nights.

But without going into boring detail, this game broke me a little. More than a little.

I've been spending more time on my facebook lately, and I have a bit of crossover between here and there so I figured I should show my face here too.

How much I'll be around, I can't say, but I've missed you all terribly - also owe more than a few apologies.

Radio silence no more

I am alive. I made a resolution to get back and catch up. What? It's still January.

I am an owing person who owes: email, replies, and general good wishes.
So, er, hey. Trying to catch up, speeding through all the Racefail and Mammothfail posts, so I follow a link over to The Angry Black Woman and find this post: Dear Hollywood, Gypsy Curses? NOT Okay., which points out the absolute fail of Sam Raimi's film Drag Me To Hell for reinforcing the racist stereotype of the scary old gypsy lady using her scary gypsy magic to curse someone. Should be all YAY!

Except. The comments.

I'm still reeling. Seriously. Just...yeah.Collapse )

A wave and a ficlet

Ack, I'm *seven* weeks behind in answering comments, but I took a gander at the prompts over at sb_kink. So yes, still with the Bruce/Clark thing here. Some great comment fic there, yay! Which I need to feed. *cough*

So I see a prompt for "grudge sex" (okay, I'm *slightly* paraphrasing). But my brain only turned up "grief sex" which is something completely different. Kind of. So nothing big, 1300 words, post-Final Crisis and completely dependent on *that* plot point (DCU and sortamaybe Bruce/Clark), bleak, nothing super-explicit, and something to offend just about everyone. Or not. Also, I unashamedly abuse the second person because someone has to.

You should hang it up, you think. The cowl stands in the middle of that pile, empty and accusing. You never would have, before. Never. But now you have and it's done.Collapse )


Messages from under the rock

Will I never just go away? *g* Behind, apologies, same old. Just a few things before I attempt to catch up again:

Dreamwidth. What? Not again.

Someone posted in sv_inquiry looking for a fic of mine. No one responded. Just the resounding silence of "Dude, I have no clue and don't care." Ha! How's that for humbling, Ms. Rom? You're forgotten! Heeee.

Ended up in the emergency room at the lovely hour of 3:30 a.m. a bit ago from *stress*. I need to calm down. *g*

I have not seen Star Trek, watched television, or done anything much. But Rom, how will we talk to you? you say. I don't know, but it's kind of damp beneath this rock that I live under now. Plus there are bugs. Hopefully, the rest of you are enjoying sunshiny spring.
