Porn! Is it possible to have another wanking fest just for this gif, because daaaaamn.

Colin! With the hair! And YET ANOTHER Death Cab shirt! And the baggy jeans! AND SOCK FEET! And, true story, every time I see the picture with the character artwork in the background and the shirtless person that MIGHT! POSSIBLY? !! be him? I wrap my arms around myself, let the gentle Autumn breeze catch in my hair and, staring into the distance, I utter unto the universe, "please". Shirtless!Colin prayercircle, fandom, c'mon. We can make it happen if we BELIEVE.

Arrested Development! MAY 26 MAY 26 MAY 26. WHO'S EXCITED? I'm rewatching the series in preparation, but if you don't have time before the new season, this should get you there -

Community! It's been kind of ordinary, right? :( There's been a couple of jokes that have been as good as ever, but for the most part, it hasn't really had me laughing.

Vikings! LAGERTHA, MY LIGHT, MY LOVE *__________* And also -starts threesome chant-. PLZ.

Discussion! So, it's been a few months since Merlin ended and I know a lot of us are still sad, and it got me thinking a bit about Merlin and how he'd be feeling. So my question for you is, in canon, three months on (now almost four), where do you think Merlin is? Emotionally, physically. Basically, what's your Merlin headcanon for the months after Arthur dies?


2) [ profile] camelot_drabble is a thing I am doing! Maybe! I don't know, I'm just bummed I haven't been able to write anything in a year and a half, and there's absolutely no pressure involved with this, I think it could be a good thing for me? COME PLAY WITH ME? Then when you've finished playing with me, go join the community. Ahahaha haha ha...ha? Forgive me, I've gotten into the Easter candy early.

3) Oh okay, so, totally random question that I could definitely google, except I'm here now, so I may as well ask...why is fish/seafood not considered meat? My family, though not generally religious in the slightest, always do the abstaining from meat thing on Good Friday, so we always have seafood and I DON'T UNDERSTAND. YOU ARE FLESH FROM AN ANIMAL, Y SO SPECIAL, SEAFOOD?

3a) Did you guys ever hear that joke in primary school, where you'd ask someone if they liked seafood and if they said yes, you'd open your mouth to show them half-masticated food and say "see? food!" and it was ALWAYS HILARIOUS?

4) Speaking of opening mouths, I went to the dentist on Monday. Barely got any sleep the night before, was PACKING IT the morning of, but the dentist was tiny and adorable and I wanted to keep her forever. I have to get my wisdom teeth out at the end of the month and then some fillings and I'm super scared about these things. We were discussing the procedure and she's like, yeah, it's probably best you go to the doctor and get a script for valium. YOU DON'T KNOW ME OKAY MAYBE I'LL BE SUPER BRAVE AND AWESOME THAT DAY. MAYBE I WON'T EVEN WANT PAINKILLERS. THE DENTAL ASSISTANT WILL COME UP TO ME WITH THE NUMBING NEEDLE AND I'LL BE LIKE NO. I'M GONNA DO THIS RAW. I'VE GOT THIS.

That, or I'll wet myself with fear.

One of those two things, almost definitely.

5) Cheat's After Dinner Mint Cheesecake:

Serves one

¼ of a philly cheese packet, softened
caster sugar
2 Mint Slice biscuits (or your country's closest equivalent), crushed
dark chocolate, melted

1 - Beat cream cheese and about 1 tablespoon of caster sugar together until combined.
2 - Add about 1 tablespoon of cream and beat until combined.
3 - Add crushed biscuits and stir to incorporate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes-an hour.
4 - Swirl melted (but cool) chocolate through.
5 - Fucking gorge on that shit.

Sorry for the shady measurements, I was ~improvising. Add a drop of peppermint essence if you want a stronger mint flavour.

6) Oh man, sugar crash.

7) One more Bradley for the road

*Home for the night, hello full-sized keyboard. If I type lively instead of lovely on my ipod one more time, I might scream.

I've actually only got a week and three days left of housesitting, I am somewhere between bummed and elated.

Tomorrow is a day of cleaning and disinfecting the house; my grandad had chemo today and he's having a blood transfusion tomorrow, and I know the chemo at least makes him very susceptible to germs.

*About to watch the final ep of Game of Thrones, finally, insert sobbing noises here. I have to say, I really enjoyed the series, having gone into it knowing absolutely nothing. I could do without the constant gratuitous violence, I'm forever watching the show through my fingers like a wuss, but then, this is HBO, I wasn't really expecting subtlety.

In related news, I would allcaps L-O-V-E to see Colin or Bradley in a guest role on that show *___*

*Lately, I've had to restrain myself from asking Bradley, via twitter, what Hogwarts house he thinks he'd be sorted into, because I don't want to give my friends second hand embarrassment. IT IS A FIERCE INTERNAL STRUGGLE THOUGH. I really want to know if he thinks he's a Gryffindor or a Hufflepuff.

The things I waste my time thinking about, I swear to fucking god.

*Oh, so Pottermore? Still not entirely sure what it is but I am excited about new canon information from JKR. Are any of you going to sign up for the beta testing of the site?

The only thing that's made me a bit sad about this whole thing is that I guess this negates the need for the long-rumoured encyclopaedia? I was looking forward to holding more Potter in my hand.

Also, FINAL POTTER FILM IN ABOUT A FORTNIGHT. I just looked back and one year ago today I was posting the trailer for the first part, ~OH MEMORIES~

*So many of you are feeling bummed lately, big hugs to you all.
Hey you *nose bop*

What do you want to talk about?
Lancelot fans, today's retold myth caters to you.

God, I love that blog.

In other news, I should have pimped this ages ago but somehow didn't; the Richard Siken fic fest. I'd never heard of Siken before, as I'm not into poetry, but from the excerpts people have posted and the quality of fic produced, he certainly makes me curious. So go check out the fics or be ~inspired. [ profile] lemniciate and [ profile] lolafeist both wrote fantastic stuff, as well as the anon (Jenn and I have our suspicions!) who wrote this (finished here) brilliant piece, which made me cry (though to be fair, lately, that is an exceedingly easy thing to make me do).

In other, OTHER news, does anyone play Fruit Ninja on the iPod/iPhone? Like, obsessively? 905 on arcade mode last night, FUCK YEAH!

In the final bit of blathering for today, I think it is time for a Lord of the Rings extended edition dvd rewatch because I have seriously not watched them in forever and I used to be so in love.
So. Is there anyone on my flist NOT doing the Big Bang?

/dregs-of-society brofist?

But I am really excited for those people attempting it. Write hard, you sexy things, write haaaard. How are you all feeling? Confident or are you dreading it yet?

If the word limit had been 20k and I had been feeling particularly insane, I might have given it a whirl, but for 30k, I know there's no point, it just wouldn't happen. STILL, I am doing my bit, cheerleading for the Divine Miss Jenn, [ profile] lemniciate, which has all been rather exciting - it's like having a backstage pass for your favourite band.

3.30am, I should probably head to bed. MAYBE. But it's so hotttt. Oh, that's right. Four t's. It's that bad.
1) It's rather jarring to hear that 75% of your state has been declared a disaster zone.

2) I'm thinking about getting a budgerigar. I'd name it Merlin, as if you had any doubt.

3) My horoscope for this week, which I choose to believe today because it suits me, which is how I view all horoscopes. I'm winning money? AWESOME! I need to grow up. Pfft, load of crock. Anyway:

Your temper may flare, but don't feel guilty about it as a relationship may have run its course. You need the company of positive people most of all. Links to your community may strengthen, with a group project tapping your natural enthusiasm. It's time to get invovled.

I ended a relationship this week! Positive people are what I need in my life! I want a group project! I have enthusiasm! I do! Just look at all these goddamn exclamation points!

4) My happy place for the week: Arthur asking to be restrained by Merlin's magic. Magical bondage, if you will. Mmmm.

5) Toothache :(
Errrgh, looking after my cousin's kids today. Not that they're any trouble, but, you know, kids. I have the maddest admiration for mothers, seriously. How you guys do it everyday is just beyond me.

Totes posting that dialect meme when I get my computer back. By which time no one will give a shit but whatever, okay? You will listen to me laugh at the word 'route' and get tongue tied by the end of the whole thing and you will think it's goddamn precious, alright?

Talk to me about Meeeerrrlin, I miss talking about it.
Went and saw Deathly Hallows again on Friday and I can confidently give it the thumbs up now. The most important thing I noticed this time around? Rupert Grint's forearms. Rawwwr.

Officially blocked in a writer-ly way, which is INCONVENIENT as I owe some lovely people Christmas fic and I'm not going to be that person who flakes, I'M NOT. I think it may be because I have that modern day Merlin surf fic still eating my brain. Also some pwp Percival/Merlin, BUT DON'T TELL ANYONE THAT.

GIVE ME RECIPES PLEASE. I've been in a cooking funk, I need something new and yummy to cook.

Aaaand now I've forgotten all the other shit I was going to talk about. IT WAS FASCINATING TOO, YOU KNOW IT WAS.

Come talk to me about one/all of the following:

a) why Merlin and Arthur are failboats in love
b) why Colin and Bradley are failboats in love
c) your ultimate magic reveal scenario
d) the one kink/trope that never fails to turn you on
e) your topic of choice
Random entry of randomness because I'm trying to keep myself awake for a few more hours.

Mrs. Krabappel and Principal Skinner were in the closet making babies and I saw one of the babies and then the baby looked at me. )
Woke up at 2am from two hours of sleep and decided that I had to find an outfit for this weekend's wedding RIGHT THEN. Eventually found one and then thought, 'meh, what the heck' and decided to clean the kitchens and bathrooms from top to bottom.

It's now 6am and I'm feeling like a pretty accomplished motherfucking boss but it's also possible I'm just delirious from the spicy combination of cleaning product fumes and a lack of sleep.

I think I'll make a meringue next, that seems to be the next logical step.


(Advice Merlin)
HI HI HI. Home until Friday. I have zero to say but hi anyway. Thus far, my hiatus has yielded the meaningful, substantial and existential enlightenment one would expect, for example:

a) Baking a cake is far more rewarding at 2am, than at any other time.

b) If I had to experience dirty fic in audiobook form, I would want Nigella Lawson as the narrator.

c) I only exist as body heat for the dog to warm herself by of an evening.

d) I Know What You Did Last Summer remains a terrible, terrible film after all these years. Jsyk. Oh Freddie Prinze Jr., it hurts deep in my soul when you try to form an expression.

And that's that. Life-affirming, I know.
Housesitting officially starts today, eight weeks baby! Though I'll be fairly evenly spread between my aunt's house and my own by the sound of it, like next week when I'm home for the entire working week, but just a heads up anyway. The house has a computer and all but I'll most likely only be using my iPod, so you'll either not hear very much from me in the way of comments because typing on the iPod is fucking hard labour, or you'll be hearing a little too much from me because there is shit-all to do. Apologies in advance for both instances.

ONE YEAR SMOKE FREE! I'd been smoking since 2000 and never actually thought I could quit successfully, at the most I think I was just hoping to cut down, but pfft, it was so much easier than I'd ever imagined. I should go create a tumblr called fuck yeah me, because seriously. FUCK YEAH ME!

Ever since I posted that Men In Tights gif the other day, I've been mentally casting Merlin characters into that film, mostly, if I'm honest, because I want to see Leon as Little John (Don't let my name fool you. In real life, I'm veeeery big). And if we were going for the slash version, which, come on, it's ME, of course we are; Arthur would have to be Robin Hood because he's blonde and dashing (and unlike some other Robin Hoods, he can speak with an English accent); which means Merlin would be Maid Marian (I must warn you - it could only be a kiss. For I am a virgin and could never...go all the way. Unless I were married. Or if a man pledged his endless love to me. Or if I knew that he desperately cared for me. Or if he were really cute!) and Gaius would be his maidservant, Broomhilde, who's always cockblocking Marian!Merlin (NO DING DING WITHOUT A WEDDING RING). Lancelot would of course be Will Scarlet because of the HAIR and Gawain would be Achoo because I suspect he's snarky and I never really got around to casting the girls but I suppose Morgana could be the witch, Latrine (Raven's egg, blood of a hen! A little more blood, yes! Eyeballs of a crocodile, testicles of a newt...I guess he's a transsexual now.) which OH OH OH means Alvarr could be the Sheriff of Rottingham because Latrine!Morgana totes has a thing for him and he already has the beard going on. So Gwen could be...Blinkin? IDK IDK, holes, but ahhh. The things that amuse my mind.

A very, very early happy birthday to [ profile] paenteom because I won't be here on the actual day. I hope you have a fabulous time, sweetheart!

And, er, that's it I think. Stay safe kiddies! TWOISH MORE WEEKS UNTIL NEW MERLIN, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
The election still remains undecided; some reports are leaning towards Gillard remaining PM, but if she can't schmooze the Independents, then we're all up shit creek with Tony Abbott.

In more positive news, new Sufjan EP, wheee!

Lookit my new icon! Oh, Rosario Dawson, you are the love of my life today <3

True Blood season three has begun airing on tv here, finally. Ep one was so-so though. Without spoiling me, does it get better?

I watched the classic film, Once Upon A Time In The West, for the very first time last night and wow, it was brilliant. I've always been a fan of older movies but I never particularly got the appeal of Westerns but this, oh this. Cut for brief, vaguely spoilery gushing )

And that's pretty much it, what's going on with you guys? Not long until new Merlin now, less than month!
I've been an emoting loser all day and thus a killer headache is born.

RANDOM IDEA: Inspired by a friend who this week asked, "do you ever want to punch yourself in the face for being so emotional?". It's a Fight Club-style LJ community for when you're emo and you know you're being ridiculous. You post your problems anonymously and then all the members rip on you (anon because I can see how no good could come from having names attached) for being such a tool, so it's like...a textual beating. And then you feel better because there's something cathartic about someone telling you off when you know you deserve it. Kind of like that overly truthful friend we've all had at some stage.

Some genius at the kinkmeme left an Oglaf prompt for cumsprites. The apprentice is so very Merlin.

I wish Merlin was 'Melrin' because I always type it that way.

Is 'mouthfilling' a wine term? If not, whoever wrote this brochure I'm looking at is just plain weird.

I was reminded today of just how beautiful a man Colin Morgan is. I mean really )

All my admiration for him is just getting a bit ridiculous now, honestly.

Meme I was tagged for )
At five-something this morning, the theory was I'd set my alarm, have three hours to sleep off the alcohol, catch a lift from a friend and come home to some pictures of my favourite gay power couple.

Instead I learned:

a) The ipod alarm clock is less successful when -
i) Your time specified is not actually a legitimate measurement, such as 887630
ii) You use the calculator

b) 42 minutes is not even close to enough time to sleep off grog.


In happier news, because you have to find a silver lining, Colin looks like sex personified.

Entry now with 10% more bad comment porn!
I finished my prompt over at [ profile] ficfully_yours, surprising myself completely by writing over 400 words that flowed out of me with relative ease. You can see the Arthur/Merlin drabble here if you're interested. I'd never written first person narrative before, but I don't mind how it turned out.

A poll for your Tuesday night/morning!

P to the O to the L to the L )

Music Meme, Day 12 )

Also, [ profile] plumora, where you at, girl?

EDIT: [ profile] wholly_crepe, get your bum back in here! You don't get to vote in my poll and then disappear for months again *clings*
We're only halfway through May, Mother Nature, you're early with the whole Winter thing, goddammit! I mean, I love the season, but this is redonkulous, it had been cold all day, every day for the last two weeks. I live in a subtropical climate, it's not supposed to be like this!

[ profile] openmoments and I started a fic community for ourselves, [ profile] ficfully_yours, with the intention to give each other a prompt every week and to write no less than one hundred words by the end of that same week. Can't say I'll be doing anything longer than the required one hundred, but maybe after I get into the swing of things I'll find writing will become a bit easier like it used to be. When I was rp'ing, I was spewing fic out of every orifice (enjoy that mental image) and I can only assume it was because I was writing so frequently. I guess I'm hoping to achieve something similar. My first prompt is 'taste' and my mind drifted immediately to porn (as it usually does) but I'll see what I can come up with.

So, erm, I thought I had more to say. TURNS OUT I DON'T, HOW ABOUT THAT. Oh, you want to hear an embarrassing story? This one time when Mum was driving me home from school, two guys in a white hatchback started to drive even with us, and the driver started yelling out his window. Now, I'm used to people shouting at us because my Mum is the slowest driver in the history of the world, so I lean across, shout out a few choice words and give the driver the finger. I normally wouldn't bother, but apparently I was pissed off that day. Anyhoo, he kind of looked shocked and I got 3.2 seconds to bask in my awesomness before Mum smacked me on the shoulder and told me that he was just asking which way to turn to get to the beach. And that's my story.

Music Meme, Day 11 )
Aiming to start posting less, I realised I was being a prick with all my constant whining about being bored and/or emo. You guys didn't sign on for that shit and that's not what I'm usually about, honest. Well, I'm sort of emo tonight because I had a huge fight with my grandfather, but I'm not about to whinge about it in great detail.
