kaydeefalls: TARDIS parked outside Millennium Centre (aliens in cardiff)
I fail at productivity. I basically just spent my entire free afternoon playing Sudoku. *facepalm*

But hey, yesterday I made the epically well-timed decision to post a new vid while everyone was off watching the Lost finale! So, yeah, if you missed it, have an Amy Pond vid. AMY IS MADE OF ALL THINGS AWESOME, OKAY.

Someone force me to work on my [livejournal.com profile] tardis_bigbang, seriously. (I really hate draft deadlines. They don't mesh with my writing process at all. I constantly edit and revise as I go along, so the idea of sending in a complete "draft" makes no sense to me. If it's done, it's DONE. If not -- why the hell are you taunting me with that entire month between the draft and final deadlines?)

(Which isn't to say I will abuse the rules of this ficathon, because I am not a special snowflake requiring special treatment, and I'm good at abiding by rules as given. But I can still whinge about it!)

Very slow day at work, except for the part where the phone was ringing off the hook during the half hour I was trying to eat my lunch. Figures. I'm at the point of stupor where I can't even work on fic or something, lest the action solely revolve around a character being bored. It's one of those days. So, that meme that's been going around.

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

It should be noted that I have no thoughts on yaoi to speak of, but, y'know, other than that.

BORED.

CHRIST I'M BORED.

I really, really, really, REALLY need a job. Because bad things happen to my brain chemistry when I sit around with nothing to do all day every day. Except look for a job. And fail to find anything. And wait for the temp agency to maybe get back to me.

For the first couple of weeks of this, I was at least using the time to write, but the more bored I am, the less creative I feel, so that spark's dying out. And until this week, I at least spent a couple of hours every day just wandering around the city and taking looong walks, but Chicago seems to have decided to bypass autumn entirely and plow straight on into winter, and it's a bit too chilly for the aimless wandering now. Well, it's not THAT cold yet, but the temperatures plummeted a bit too abruptly and I haven't adjusted back to chilliness yet. I suppose I'll get over it -- lord knows it's going to get a hell of a lot colder when winter actually hits.

Anyway. BORED. I've read all the BSG fic on [livejournal.com profile] crack_van and all the other fics all those writers have written or recced, I've long since done the same for any decent House fics out there, and my attention span is too sporadic for any other fandoms at the moment. Also, said crack van apparently has no new recs in any fandom for the month of October. Anyone know what's up with that? And I've played more games of solitaire than I can even conceive of counting. BORED. BORED BORED BORED.

I hate having nothing to do ever.

oh, jobs.

Gah. I am such a terminal procrastinator. I simply cannot muster the willpower to write this cover letter. They're asking for something so obnoxiously specific that I really can't just adapt my standard letter of interest, and the thought of starting from scratch just...ugh.

I mean, I know I have to, and I will, but I really think I ought to read more of my favorite House and QAF fics again first. And eat cookies. The cookies are crucial. Obviously.

Also, the prescription uber-ibuprofin that I got back when I had strep and have lived on my desk ever since (because the next time I get a migraine, being able to find these bastards in a hurry will totally rock my world, hot damn they were pain-relieving) look like House's Vicodin, which means that when I'm in a snarky mood (which is, y'know, fairly often) I really want to carry them around with me and rattle the little prescription bottle lots and possibly toss a couple back whenever I see someone really annoying. Which is kinda silly, since I don't even take Tylenol all that often, but still.

Wow. I can ramble on about just about anything if it means avoiding thinking about this cover letter.

God, my LJ is boring. My RL is perfectly satisfying but quite uninteresting these days, so I rarely feel compelled to make personal posts, but while I'm still flitting around reading fics, my fandoms of choice seem oddly inactive these days, and I'm not interested in SPN or BSG or SGA or any of the other acronym fandoms that seem to be eating my flist of late (my complete lack of interest in watching TV may have something to do with this). So my LJ winds up being...really, really dull. Sorry, guys. Some people are really brilliant diarists, and their posts are great reads even when they're just talking about cheese or something, and I wish I knew the trick to it but, alas, it is not for me to be a brilliant writer of journal entries. But I'm here, and I'm still reading everything on my flist every day, and...yeah. Hi.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (you know me)
Eh, seems potentially interesting.

How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something and you were really confused, but you didn't want to ask because you knew you SHOULD know? How many times have you felt 'guilty' asking a close LJ friend a question that should be 'obvious'? Well, here's your chance. If you've missed a few things, missed an entry and are confused, ask me anything. Even something EXTREMELY basic, like where I live! I'm not allowed to get even slightly irratated at any of the questions - we've all missed things before.

In other news...there is no other news. Wow, boredom.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (where the women are strong)
The heat in my room does not go on. This is not a happy thing. I mean, obviously my room is warmer than, say, outside, but that doesn't make it warm. And it's bloody freezing outside. Here I was, very grateful to be bypassing a Chicago winter for the more temperate climes of Ireland, and apparently the Irish are expecting the coldest winter in several decades. Thanks, Ireland, for making me feel right at home. *shivers*

In other news, I know this is heretical (as several of the other American students here have told me), but I'm quite glad to have missed Thanksgiving. It's my least favorite holiday. My family stresses me out, and I don't particularly like any of the traditional Thanksgiving foods -- turkey and mashed potatoes are very eh, and I detest cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. So while I wouldn't have minded the two days off from classes, it's nice to be in a country that doesn't celebrate a holiday based around a rather bullshit and racist historical occurrence that was the First Thanksgiving we learned about in grade school, second only in trumped-up WTFness to Columbus Day (oh, don't get me started). But anyway. I know that a lot of people in the US genuinely love Thanksgiving, so for those of you who did celebrate it, I hope it was suitably splendiferous.

On the other hand, last year I spent Thanksgiving with the boyfriend's family, and I rather enjoyed that. Other people's family tensions and oddities are amusing to observe, whereas my own family just makes me want to scream. So it goes.

Damn, I wish the Rent movie was out in Ireland. I'll have to wait for winter break to see it.

Slept through class #1. Dragged self out of bed and into some semblence of awakeness for class #2. Went to class #2. Sign on door: class #2 cancelled. Still have five hours until class #3. So, now: to go back to sleep, or to resign self to awakeness?

Must ponder.

Meme, stolen from everyone.

Take a look at my icons. Comment with the following:

1. One that makes you automatically think of me.
2. One that you think I should TOTALLY use more often.
3. One that you don't get/needs more explanation/you have no idea why the hell I have it.

Comment using an icon of yours that you LOVE, and tell me why you picked THAT one too.

gah.

I am so bored and sick of being at my parents' house that I am seriously considering undertaking the massive and pointless project of TAGGING ALL MY LJ ENTRIES EVER. Because it would be something time-consuming to do.

Someone convice me that this is a bad idea. Dude, I don't even like those silly LJ tags.

I really need to learn patience.

The boyfriend's roomie is back in town, so I've packed up all my stuff and moved out of the room. Except for my laptop. And I shipped all my books out this morning, so now I am tragically book-and-DVD-less. Woe.

In other news of the excitement that is me:

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post a link to your entries on this day six months ago, nine months ago, a year ago, and two years ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.

3/22/05: Bemoaning the death of the X-Files fandom
12/21/04: A meme about the fics I wrote in 2004
9/22/04: Remus fic, because apparently I used to post fic. Whoa
9/22/03: Settling into college

Wow. My life was NEVER interesting. Go me.

Three more days left in Chicago.

baaaa.

Boredom breeds sheep, apparently. Therefore, meme. That top five meme, where you ask me for my top five of anything and I tell you. And, heck, if you'd like to tell me your top five, too, go right ahead. It's all cool.

Or, y'know, just comment with something interesting. I'm easy.

My part-time job is the boringest boring thing that ever was boring. And yet I'm probably not only going to keep working here this summer, but in fact increase my hours. Because I need the money.

And on the subject of money, I really want a soda from the vending machine, but I have exactly eighteen cents in my wallet. Oh, the humanity.

And I'm done checking e-mail and both LJ flists, and I've still got an hour to go. AND my boss seems to have vanished for the day, so I could read fic and whatnot with impunity if I so chose. If there were anything to read. Damn, it's been a while since I last read fic. Well, except for my current X-Files fanfic renaissance.

I wish I could finish any of my WIPs (remix excluded, which IS finished, ha ha ha). I wish I were a prolific fanfic writer. I used to be, I think. But not anymore. That's what happens when RL takes over, I guess.

My play goes up in ten days WTF when did that happen?

bop.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] juweldom! Hope it's splendiferous and sparkly!

Wow, the last few weeks have been boring for me. I hope you all have me filtered off your daily flist, because there's absolutely nothing of interest in this here LJ. My apologies.

I want spring break to come already, dammit.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (which way did he go george?)
At work. So bored omg. Have already checked both e-mail accounts twice and gone through both LJ f-lists. Still have an hour and a half here. Entertain me please.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (rosencrantz)
So the roomie started shooting me those it's-1:30am-OMG-I'm-supposed-to-have-a-single-now looks. I guess that was my cue to stop making sim!Sirius chat up sim!Lily (what? he hasn't met sim!Remus yet and whenever sim!Lily and sim!James interact, all these red minus signs appear over their heads. Which I guess is canon, since they're still preteens. But I digress) and go to the boyfriend's room.

So where's the boyfriend?

...

*eats boyfriend's Wheat Thins*

But seriously, while I would go to the boyfriend's room every night anyway, since his single is about twice the size of my double, I'm really getting sick of feeling like an intruder in my own room. I AM paying housing to live there. I should be able to hang out there for as long as I like.

...OMG the people in the room next door are having loud sex again. *cringes*

*crunches Wheat Thins AS LOUDLY AS POSSIBLE*

Hi.

SNOW.

It's SNOWING like mad. Which would make me a lot happier if I didn't have a fifteen-minute walk back from work across the coldest, windiest part of campus. Le sigh.

La la la not doing work at work la la la.

Hi.

[livejournal.com profile] kohaku1977, I got your card! Yay! I love getting cards from other countries. *beams*

Er, should probably wrap my parents' Christmas pressies, or sommat.

Not sure when I'll actually write my self-imposed "slasha" fic, but it will come. Eventually. (The nice thing about creating a challenge fic for yourself? No deadline.)

Just finished watching "Cameras in Middle Earth" and "The End of an Age" on the RotK:EE. HEART. SO MUCH LURVE.

That is all.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (rosencrantz)
ROTK:EE finally comes out tomorrow. But I, fool that I am, pre-ordered it from amazon.com, which means I probably won't actually GET it until the end of the week. Alas.

My hair is being ridiculously soft and curly today. Am v. suspicious. Suspect it is trying to lull me into submission, or sommat. I'm not sure why my hair would want to lull me into submission, but perhaps my life would be more interesting if someone were plotting against me.

Current [livejournal.com profile] yuletide wordcount: 100. *facepalm* Argh, am so very unenthused about this fic.

And that's the news from Lake Wobegon...

*collapses*

I really want to be creative or something, but I really just feel like going to sleep. Alas.

Yeah, there was really no point to this entry.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (so sleepy)
Zine shipped. Yay!

Two Lines stumping me. Not yay.

Really, really tired all day, for no apparent reason. Very not yay.

My life is filled with such excitement and adventure, you have no idea.

Oh my god!
