So. How much do I love BBC America? A lot. It's so much more sci-fi than the Sci-Fi channel. (Oh, excuse me. Sy-fy. Ugh.) I can't wait until they start showing more Being Human. *bounces excitedly because I loves my vamp/werewolf/ghost show* But in the mean time, I've been distracting myself with Survivors. If you haven't seen it, it's basically Stephen King's The Stand but with British accents and everyone's terribly polite even though it's the apocalypse. Even the "bad guy" is polite in his own effed-up way. Plus MY FREEMA was in the first episode! I started watching it skeptically (as I usually do when I start a show for the first time) and I thought "Well, this is the UK. Maybe a name will pop out as familiar." Then there were the magic words "with Freema Agyeman." Then there was squee. Big time squee.


So the show starts up and I'm like "Where's Freema? WHERE IS SHE! Hey, that's Pete Tyler! Pete! How's Rose and 10.5 doing?? Where's Freema?! THERE SHE IS! Oooh, pretty dress! Squee! WTF Is that Protozoa?!"


Yeah. Three reasons to watch:

1. Freema Agyeman in a pretty dress.
2. Pete flippin' Tyler a.k.a Mr. Rose's Dad With His Own Blimpy World
3. ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM PROTOZOA!!!! (from the Zenon movies. c'mon, keep up)


I saw last night that they've added the second episode to On Demand so maybe I'll get watching that now. Does anyone else watch? I need my squee peeps. (Though this show seems odd to squee over since it's about like, 90% of the population keeling over. But I adore apocalyptic fiction. I'm sort of insane that way.)

OMG I'M FINISHED WITH TRUE BLOOD'S FIRST SEASON! Spoilery flailing )


In case anyone missed it, I got a fic meme in progress. If there's anything you want me to write, speak now or forever hold your peace. There's six more slots left so head on over and request something. If it's something that fits within my abilities, consider it written. So far I've got a Chuck/Nancy Drew crossover, Doctor Who, Angel, and of all things The Princess Bride. Challenge me! :P (So long as it's something I have knowledge of. I can't write Numbers fic or anything anime, sorry.)

Hey, it's Heroes night! In honor of that here's OMG THIS PERSON GOT A CLAUDE TATTOO I CAN'T EVEN OMG THAT IS SO COOL AND IF I WASN'T SO AGAINST TATTOOING IN GENERAL I'D GET THIIIIIIIIIIS


Ahem. Yeah. Claude tattoo. It can cheer us up as we watch the show and long for him to come back. C'MON, WRITERS. YOU KEEP HINTING AT HIM AND IT'S MEAN.

OMG SQUEE

DOCTOR WHO CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKES!!!!


If Mr. A got me a TARDIS cake for my birthday, he'd pretty much be guaranteed at LEAST 12 kids from me. True story.

Wow. So, Half Blood Prince is my new favorite Potter film. It officially replaces Prisoner of Azkaban. *moment of silence for PoA* Anyway. Without spoiling anything, the kids all friggin' brought it with this movie. Rupert Grint was fabulous as always and had even more opportunity to flex his considerable comedy chops, Emma Watson is a convincing crier and has toned down on her waggling eyebrow style of acting, and FINALLY after five movies, Daniel Radcliffe convincingly carries the film. I was so impressed with him, guys. He was charming and seemed to be actually acting rather then reading from the book into his bedroom mirror after stealing his dad's glasses or whatever. There were some obligatory changes made from book to screen because sometimes what makes a good book doesn't really make a good movie. (Case in point: The Sorcerer's Stone. Good fucking god, I was ready to kill something.) This infuriated a third of the theater but my friends and I thought the changes were really friggin' cool. Your mileage may vary of course, but if you want to gripe about that here, I'm not going to listen to you. Sorry. My journal, my rules.


Theater griping moment: There was only one asshole, some kid who had clearly never seen a Potter film before, let alone read any of the books. He/she made stupid comments throughout. Like at the introduction of Draco Malfoy, "That's a funny name." Asking what British words meant ("daft" completely knocked hir for a loop) was another fun moment and then when Harry first uses the Pensieve, "Did he just stick his face in water?" What. The. Fuck. Why would you waste a MIDNIGHT HARRY POTTER PREMIERE ticket on someone who doesn't know anything about Harry Potter? I thought it was pretty generally understood that midnight showings were for fanatics and complete dorks? (I fit in the latter category, FYI) What a complete waste. Someone else was turned away who probably really wanted to go so this nimrod could yap throughout and try their damndest to ruin the experience for everyone? (He/she didn't quite succeed since they were SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-ed within an inch of their life after every dumb comment or question.)


I have to say that my favorite non-movie moment was when the trailers started up and NEW MOON came on. One third of the theater started squeeing, my third of it started laughing hysterically, and the other third was unimpressed with one dude in the back loudly shouting "BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!" Which made all of us laugh even harder. I feel bad for the Twihards though, because there were probably people who wanted to watch the trailer and enjoy it but everyone talked over it and made disparaging comments. I can only hope the huge fans already watched it online. Ha, then when we see the shirtless Jacob scene, the entire theater burst into catcalls. Awesome. Mr. A and I are so going.


So that was the experience. There were folk in costumes but they were in the minority for some really weird reason. It was mostly twenty-somethings like us in street clothes talking about how tough it was going to be to get up the next day. :P


EDIT: WARNING! THERE MAY BE SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS. TREAD CAREFULLY.

Whatever you're doing right now, stop. Get together ten bucks. Then go see The Hangover. BEST MOVIE EVER. Deppgirl and I laughed through the whole thing and a few times we reached the point where you can't even make a sound anymore, only flail your hands while your shoulders shake. There isn't a single boring part!


Ed Helms was in it and completely ruled, Bradley Cooper was freaking hot, and Zach Gallifinakis is my new hero. You'd be doing yourself a disservice by not seeing it. Go! Preferably in a packed theater because you'll all feel bonded!

FINISHED MY PAPER AND SENT IT OFF TO MY PROFESSOR.


You know what that means? I AM OFFICIALLY DONE WITH PAPERS, PROJECTS, TESTS, QUIZZES, PRESENTATIONS, AND ALL THAT OTHER B.S.!!!


The last time I'll be on campus is Saturday for commencement! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! I'm so jazzed to be done! Now I can focus on a job search and FIC! I don't even think I can remember how to fic. *jaw drop* I know, right? I should open up a request post or something to get warmed up. Then I can get on the stuff I owe people (patient, sweet, wonderful people!) and the stories I had planned before school ate my brain. *fist pump*
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (HEROES: i love heroes)
I need Claire/Aqua!Alex icons because ZOMG NEW OTP. He's 100% my type and beats West in every way there is. Yeah, you know it.


This entry brought to you by Cherry Dr. Pepper too late in the evening. Cherry Dr. Pepper: the only Dr. Pepper that doesn't taste like vomit to me. (Yeah, I stole one of the bf's Dr. Peppers. Call it revenge for when I told him he could have "some" of my Wild Cherry Pepsi and he ended up drinking a third of the case before I had to hide the remaining three cans to ensure that I actually got a few of the sodas I BOUGHT.)


(Also, I like this song way more than I should. Not so guilty pleasure? Yes indeedy!)


... CLAIRE/AQUA!ALEX OTP FOR REALSIES!
