toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (david tennant turned on)
Is it weird that I spent 45 minutes on YouTube looking at silly 60s music videos? And I mean SILLY like Annette Funicello and the Beach Boys singing "The Monkey's Uncle" in the first three minutes of The Misadventures of Merlin Jones. I just like campy crap, okay? She loves the monkey's uncle, yeah yeah.


Day 28 - First t.v show obsession )

We have a cake!! Well, we have an eight inch cake and 30 cupcakes. I'm so glad the girl we dealt with didn't tell us to jump off a cliff since she's already having to do two other weddings on the 7th. Ugh. So yeah. Now to figure out my hair, music, and who's buying what food. Whew!

Now is the time on Sprockets when we meme!

Day 21 - Favorite ship )

Day 22 - Favorite series finale )

Earlier Days )

I thought I'd play catch-up with the meme since I've been up since 5:45 a.m.. Noooooooooo, body. Fail. :(

Day 19 - Best t.v show cast

The Office U.S. I may have lost interest in the show but it undeniably has an awesome cast. I know some people are bitter about how Jim and Pam are such a huge focus but it really is an ensemble piece. Everyone has their own fully defined character and I love everyone. (Except Ryan. And Angela. And Erin; though she is very sweet she's boring and I can't forgive boring.)

Day 20 - Favorite kiss )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (chipettes: eleanor - meme time!)
Woke up at 6:00 for no reason except my body didn't want to sleep anymore. I'm sorry you can't handle SHEER AWESOMENESS, BODY. :(

So now we play meme catch-up and maybe I'll update about my life later.

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show

As I think I've said before, I don't believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. Like what you want to like and if your friends give you crap for it, BFD. But I guess my answer for this is True Blood. When I met up with Hitch recently and mentioned that I enjoyed the show, she didn't say anything but she seemed disappointed in me, lol. So I guess I won't be joining the "cool" lunch table any time soon.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series

Stephen King's It, hands down. I watched it constantly as a kid and Tim Curry is the reason I'm completely terrified of clowns. Particularly male, red-headed ones. SO MUCH DO NOT WANT. Also, baby!Seth Green is in it and it was a funny realization to make as I got older to realize kid!Richie Tozier was indeed Scott Evil/Oz from Buffy/Kenny from Can't Hardly Wait/and so on. (Wasn't Seth Green in every single movie that came out between the years 1997 and 2000?

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence

Skins, Season One. Look at Cassie bouncing on the trampoline! Yay, Sid! Everyone looks so pretty! I usually skip the opening sequence of a show once I've seen it a million times, but not so with Skins. I keep watching it because I love the sadly whimsical music (and tap the air to the last little DAH DAH DAH DAH DAH part) and it just sets the tone perfectly. I love this show. (I'm stuck in Season Two, though. I know Cassie/Sid gets all fucked up and I'm scared to see it happen. *is a wuss*)

Earlier Days )

I got to have dinner with the lovely Hitch tonight (who I haven't seen in over a YEAR sadface!). We went to a local Chinese buffet and talked all about the upcoming wedding and where our lives have gone since we last saw each other. Sigh. I hate being a grown up; I want all my friends in close walking distance like in the dorms!

Futile wishes out of the way, here's the meme catch-up!

Day 14 - Favorite male character

Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly. He's badass, he's smart, he's hot, and he wears an ensemble of tight pants and suspenders! What's not to love, honestly? I guess you could argue that his remarks about Inara being a whore are annoying but uh, she has sex for money, guys. By definition, that's what a whore is. And he's only frustrated because he knows she's BETTER than that. Even being a fan of him and knowing where he's coming from, I still want to smack him upside the head when he starts calling her a whore. "Uh, doofus? You know how you're all in love with her and shit? Well, saying this stuff ISN'T ENDEARING YOURSELF TO HER. Protip: Don't call your potential love interest a whore when she's really a culturally acceptable geisha companion. So stop it." *whacks him with rolled up newspaper*

Day 15 - Favorite female character

Donna Noble from Doctor Who. She came on as a full-time companion exactly when we needed her. Ten had chased off the lovely Martha with all his whinging about Rose ("Rose would know what to do." WTF NO SHE WOULD NOT. WHAT THE HELL. SHUT UP.) and Donna stepped in to distract him with her awesomeness. Because she wasn't in love with him, she didn't put up with him talking down to her and would tell him off the instant he did it. ("Doctor, Time Lord, Yeah!" / "Donna, Human, No!" remains one of my all-time favorite scenes from the show.) She wasn't all sass though; the woman was filled to the brim with compassion and I remember people bitching about how often Donna cried. Which I kind of took offense too since I was usually crying along with her. Doctor Who makes me cry, what can I say? Donna Noble has left the library; Donna Noble has been saved.

In the latest wedding news: My mom and I went looking for a bakery today that didn't actually exist! Yet Map Quest gave us directions and we ended up circling around a residential neighborhood saying, "This really doesn't seem like a place for a bakery." We couldn't find the building number this alleged bakery was located, either. Kiss my ass, Map Quest.

Now to the meme!

Day 13 - Favorite childhood show )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DISNEY PRINCESS: belle - raspberry)
Funny story: I was getting fitted for my dress today, got overheated, and actually swooned in a very Victorian fashion. The mommies flipped and ran to get me bananas and water. At the time I felt like complete crap but it's funny now. I just have to wonder how the ladies did hot, stuffy dress fittings in the summer months WHILE WEARING TIGHT CORSETS. Sheesh. Nothing but respect to the Victorian ladies for not dropping dead like I wanted to.

Now we meme.

Day 12 - An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (TB: bill & eric: disapprove sparkling)
No patter today, just meme. :)

Day 09 - Best scene ever )

Earlier days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (toxic corn)
Today I ordered my flowers and Mr. A and I agreed on our ceremony and sent it off to the officiant! The Bridesmaid From Hell upset me earlier but you know what? I'm not even devoting a paragraph to her, so she can just suck it. I should have kicked her out months ago when you all told me to but hey, live and learn.

Now onto the meme!

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (natalie dee: cute corn)
Meme catch up! Not as sad as last time since yesterday was a national holiday and all. I ended up going to see Get Him to the Greek. I don't care about your thoughts on Russel Brand but I like him. (His stand up and his role in films, specifically. His MTV award hosting gigs... um. No.)

Day 05 - A show you hate )

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show )

Earlier days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (FF: jayne - the man they call jayne)
It's almost July and I'm bored right now so I figured I'd do that tv meme I've been meaning to do. Perfect since August will be way too busy for me to do a daily meme. :D Let's kick this one off, shall we?

Day 01 - A show that should have never been canceled

Firefly. I kind of didn't want to pick this one because everyone says Firefly should never have been canceled but when I think about what I'd pick instead, Arrested Development and Angel in particular, I realize that those had pretty decent runs with three and five seasons respectively. Firefly had an interesting concept, excellent writing, fabulous characters, and it was just plain fun to watch. It deserved a full season. (Though sometimes I think it's so beloved and admired because Joss didn't get the chance to fuck with it and torture his characters like an eight year old boy torturing an ant with a magnifying glass on a sunny day. I admire the man but Jesus Christ, he has some serious issues with just allowing people to be HAPPY.)

The rest of the days )
toxic_corn: Kelly wants to know WHAT THE HELL? (kelly: what the hell?)
Day 24 → Whatever tickles your fancy

Everything Is Terrible! A group of AV enthusiasts have taken on the hilarious task of watching weird old VHS tapes and editing the more bizarre/funny/surreal moments into a 1:30 clip. I'm working my way through these and my favorite so far has to be the creepy anti-Harry Potter video. Especially when the lady earnestly describes how "Voldemore" "sucks the unicorn."

Previous Days )

Day 21 → A recipe

A really quick and (somewhat) healthy snack/appetizer type item: you'll need crab meat or imitation crab (we use imitation because Mr. A has a crustacean allergy), light cream cheese, and won ton wrappers. You place a dollop of cream cheese in the center of the won ton wrapper and a shred of crab meat with it then fold the wrapper up all fancy. Then after you've wrapped as many of the little purses as you want, you spray them with Pam or paint oil on them with a fancy brush, whatever. Then put it in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Ta dah, crab thingamabobbers. If you want to make this, I suggest googling for a better recipe than this because I'm the laziest cook in the world and you'll probably find better ideas.

Now I go crash because it's been a long damn day.

Day 20 → A hobby of yours

It sounds boring I suppose, but I adore reading. I can spend an entire day reading (I'm pretty sure I have before, come to think of it). I'll read pretty much anything though I've out-grown romance novels. (Well, I still read supernatural romance so long as it stars Sookie Stackhouse or Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld. Because those ladies are AWESOME.)

Day 18 → Whatever tickles your fancy

This used to randomly come on Nickelodeon between shows when I was a kid. I looked for it on YouTube the other day and Voila, there it was. Meeeeeeeeeeemoryyyy....

Previous Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (LM: *peek*)
Day 17 → An art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.)


Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights. There's just so MUCH to look at in this painting, in all three panels. The first panel is Jesus and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the middle panel is people and animals frolicking together and you know they're evil because they're having fun (insert eyeroll here), and the third panel is hell. Hell is especially interesting to look at and not a little gruesome because there's some disturbing stuff in there. You'll have to Google to find a bigger image because I didn't feel like stretching my journal out by posting something large.

Previous Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (the office: dwight ;_; crying)
Day 16 → A song that makes you cry (or nearly)

Slipping Through My Fingers by ABBA. I'm close with my mom so that part of Mamma Mia always has me in BIG TIME tears. On my wedding day, I'll probably cry thinking of this song and fuck up my makeup. Lame. :P It's a pretty song but I just avoid it when I can since yeah, I don't need to spring leaks when I just want to listen to some Mamma Mia fun.

Previous Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (WFRR? jessica: BOOBIES)
Day 15 → A fanfic

Crash & Burn by Nautibitz. I've loved Nauti's fic since I was 17/18 years old and was in the process of rekindling my love for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Back in the day I was really into the Spike/Buffy pairing. I've since gotten over it but I to this day will read anything Nauti puts out (heh) because she is SO amazingly awesome. Crash & Burn is my personal favorite that I hope she finishes some day. What's on her site is only Part 1 and I've been patiently waiting for Part 2 since the summer of '03 I believe. Everything else on her site is well worth reading. Especially In Heat and Older.

Anyway, Crash & Burn is an all-human AU in which Spike is a struggling musician suffering from heart break who crashes his car into recent high school graduate Buffy's car. From there it just gets better. The UST is so thick, you could cut it with a knife or drive a stake through it, whatevs.

And that is my contribution to the 30 Day Meme for today. Read porn, kids.
