I love TJ Thyne. So much.

Go Bones!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Hart for Bones spoilers, The Proof In The Pudding )

I just got a call...from Doggy Business, the place I DIDN'T get the job from. Aaaaand...apparently their first choice took another job the next day, so they're offering it to me. Yaaaaaaaaaaay! When does that happen? So now I can actually buy Christmas presents, and not have to worry all Christmas season about paying the bills. Whew! I am so relieved. I hate, hate, HATE the job search and its soul-sucking emptiness.

So now CHRISTMAS is on, and I'm helping a friend go tree-hunting today, yaaaaaay! Also also, the 2009 X-Files Advent Calendar is up and tomorrow's my day! I had no inspiration, so I just threw together a small something, but I'm so glad to be involved again. It's not Christmas without it.

And there was BONES last night! The Gamer in the Grease. )

And because I am very happy right now, how about some Christmas goodness? I love my stupid warm silly show.

I am WEAK.

I caved. I did it. I bought my Christmas present. I only allow myself to "splurge" 2 days of the year - my birthday and Christmas. My birthday this year I bought myself Bones season 3. For Christmas I was eagerly awaiting ordering season 2. So I found a great price tracking Firefox add-on (The Camelizer!) and checked it out on Amazon to discover it's only $19.99! Camelizer shows that being the lowest price yet, with prices likely to skyrocket after Thanksgiving. So I grabbed it while I could. I caved. I bought it. Heeeee! It was actually hard not to add on Season 1 as well. Only problem is now I'm set to get that by next week and nothing to squee over at Christmas. Why doesn't Amazon offer delayed shipping?

Anyways, I still have a couple requests to fill out (thank you for the enthusiastic response, guys! I needed the inspiration), PLUS I've now signed up for the XF Advent Calendar (it's back! It's back! Squeeeeeeeeee!!!!). Don't know what I was thinking. But you all need to sign up as well. C'mon, guys, it's a holiday tradition!

Aaaaaaand, of course there have been shows. Bones, and Doctor Who, and House. )

I'm spending Thanksgiving at a friends house (need to make mashed potatoes tonight, eee!), then work Friday and should hear back from the doggy daycare about the job. I think it's in the bag. But I never trust it until it happens. Also, woot for [ profile] bayareajenn who got an interview! Heeee!! That's the best feeling in the world. Yay happy good times!
memento1: (OT - fangirling)
It's that time again!! [ profile] savvy_elf's annual Christmas music meme! I love that thing.

This weekend is awesome, BTW. On Thursday, absolutely awesome fantastic Bones. )

And then yesterday me and [ profile] balmyone had a Skype marathon and we watched some select Doctor Who episodes - The Impossible Planet, The Satan Pit, and Doomsday. And tomorrow is THE WATERS OF MARS which we're ridiculously excited about. Also tomorrow? A Vikings game AND I have an interview at a dog boarding and training facility. So, yes. GOOD WEEKEND! Plz to be continuing?

Also, fic rec! Unintended, by GoldenNinde, is a long Booth/Bones fic with an actual plot. Not the best plot ever, but a good try of it, and well worth it for the angst and smut and all around squee-worthiness. I love long fics. I love looking forward to getting home just so I can continue reading. ;)

Good Day!

It was a good day. I co-hosted a school assembly this morning where we flew and displayed our birds (and thank goodness I actually managed to mostly remember the script!), I FINALLY got to start handling the red-tailed hawk, Sundance, and my boss trained me in on weighing the new bald eagle. She has not shown much faith or trust in me all summer, so it felt nice to simply be taught and trusted with something new (this as-yet-unnamed bald came injured from the wild and cannot even be handled yet). So YAY! It's been so long since I've left work feeling at all proud of myself, it's a wonderful little high. Hee!

Also, I re-watched The Double Death of the Dearly Departed and it's even better than I remembered. Probably my favorite ep of the whole 4th season, no joke. There's not a minute I don't love. Great acting, witty writing, and Booth dancing. Doesn't get much better than that. ;)
memento1: (OT - TV)
I finally made myself sit down in front of Photoshop yesterday to make a new header. I hadn't even opened Photoshop since I moved here, so it was nice to return to. Anyways, it's long overdue since I haven't changed it in over a year. And it's Bones. Surprise, surprise. It ended up way off from what I went in to make, but that's the fun of Photoshop. Plus I had to get paid time to change the layout so now I can upload more icons and make voiceposts to annoy you again! ;)

Spoilers for Harbingers in the Fountain )

So, uh, yeah. And AZA day went well. My show went EXCELLENTLY (zoo people make an enthusiastic crowd), there was lots of free food, and I got a little bit of networking in. Yay AZA! For now, I'm dead tired and I still have to work tomorrow before I can get a break. Why oh why do I have to work tomorrow morning?
memento1: (OT - Find X)
Worked overtime today, cleaning all day at work and then bringing animals to the Educator's Soiree for the AZA Conference. It was a great opportunity to network, and I met a few people who run education programs in zoos across the nation. Chatted with a nice guy from a zoo in New York, who runs their outreach program. And it was a little flirty. And nice. To have a really interesting conversation with a really interesting guy, and wonder if there's something there. I've kinda forgot what that's like. So, it was nice. Hee. I'm looking forward to Thursday, when the entire conference delegation is coming to the zoo. Networking MADNESS. It's such a great opportunity.

And Bones in *2 DAYS*. It's ridiculous how excited I am about that. It's like a constant background hum in my head all day long. The cable guy is putting in cable at the new apartment tomorrow (just in time!), and I splurged on a DVR. It's the first time I'll have my own DVR and I can't friggin' wait.
memento1: (Bones - B/B)
Today was the staff preview of the new Predators of the Serengeti exhibit opening this weekend at the zoo, so we took a field trip after lunch to check it out. They were doing some last minute preparation and some of the animals weren't out yet (the mongoose and caracal), but all the big ones were. It was awesome because a) only staff and volunteers were allowed, so no crowds and pushing to get to the front and b) because having visitors on the other side of the glass was such a new experience, a lot of the animals watched us and came right up to the glass. The cheetahs especially kept coming up and touching their noses to the glass. They have such big, soulful brown eyes. It was spectacular. The wild dogs too came up close and are enchanting to watch (they have striking markings, a lean body, and big ears). The lions stayed pretty well away, although the male (who was a cub at the San Diego Wild Animal Park when I worked there) has a ridiculously cute mohawk mane. The python exhibit had a thermal imaging camera that was almost as much fun as watching the animals. So, awesome field trip, and it was very cool to get to see it early. This weekend is gonna be CRAZY.

And then tonight Bones' "The End in the Beginning" was on (squeeeeeeeee!) and after a full summer since last seeing it, I can say it's still a cop-out and pointless, but DAYUM do I love me some affectionate B/B. Guh. But why wasn't there a new promo for next week? I am DYING of anticipation. OMG, I haven't been this ridiculously excited since...since...the X-Files movie last year. I LOVE that thrill of anticipation, of fangirling a current show, of looking forward so badly to that next new episode you can hardly think of anything else. May I just mention again HE SAYS THE WORDS!!! Oh god, I'm hopeless, but that alone will make the wait worth it. Heeeeeeeeeee! *vibrates with anticipation*

memento1: (Bones - B/B)
First off, I'd like to welcome my new friends - it's so exciting to have more fangirls to squee with! Why I'm taking on more friends when I can't even keep up with the ones I have is a good question. *L* Anyways, I will try!

Good news: A few days ago I payed off one of my student loans. Woo-freakin'-hoo! It was the SMALLER of my two student loans, but still, that's nice.

Bad news: Money issues still freaking me out. I need a second job by this fall or my income will be less than my expenses, and that's not even counting health insurance.

Neutral news: Have found an apartment (with a gay friend-of-a-friend who was also looking for cheap housing). It's one of the best deals I'm at all liable to find around here, so I'm taking it, but that means I have to turn down a sweet pet-sitting deal I would have had this winter (3+ months rent-free). Anyways, it's in a nice neighborhood closer to the zoo and, as I said, really freaking cheap compared to any other apartment. So, that's a relief but not really a relief at all because I still won't be able to make ends meet without another job. Gaaaaaahhhhh.

Let's move on to happier things, yes? Like, fandom! My Bones season 3 arrived and it's so shiny and happy and YAY. I immediately popped the first disk in the watch the tag scene of "Death in the Saddle". Oh, Booth's voice there makes me quiver. Heeeeee. And of course, FOX is driving me happily mad with anticipation for season 5. Lookit their teaser promos! LOOKIT!!!

*collapses in corner in fit of glee* GUYS! HE SAYS IT!! Those three sappy, silly, adorable words. This show will kill me. Or at least the wait until September 17th will. Which, BTW, is Zoo Day for the AZA Conference (The Oregon Zoo is hosting the AZA conference this year - easily the biggest zoo conference in the nation if not the world - and that's the day everyone visits the zoo), so I better get home on time. I will be in spasms of joy all day.

What else? My birthday went well - I went to a friend's house after work where we had pasta and blueberry pie, and my co-workers even got me a cake. Hee! It's a little sad that I still get so excited about birthday cake. ;) Anyways, yay!

Oh, oh, also! I discovered bloodwrites, who is a fantastic writer and has written a few great Bones novels (novellas? Anyways, really long, complicated, delicious stories). I'm in the middle of The Killer in the Classroom, which is thrilling, shippy, and set in Portland (!!), while The War in the Woods is hands-down my favorite Bones story yet. Each of the characters is so brilliantly captured, and it made me laugh and cry in equal measure. This is what I read through piles of crap hoping to find.

So, there you have it. I'm pretty much caught up on the past week of the flist, but I still feel out of the loop. How are you all doing?
memento1: (Bones - B/B)
Well, I'm back. Minnesota was lovely and wonderful. I got to see my only alumni, several of my old college friends and roommates, and spend a lot of time just catching up with my mom. It was a lovely week-long retreat. Upon return, of course, I'm now in the midst of my semi-annual financial freak-out, when I realize how little money I'm making and wonder how I'll make ends meet. I can't afford health insurance. I have to leave the place I'm living and looking at alternatives is driving me nuts as it's twice the price I'm paying now, for less (I had a very sweet deal here). Adding up my required monthly expenses (loans, bills, food and gas) leaves me hanging with no extra income at my current rate, and I'll be screwed if I can't find a second job when my hours drop this fall. Thus the freak-out. My mom has offered to help me out and pay for health insurance, and I'll take her up on it because I do need insurance, but I hate doing it. I was financially independent. I was proud of that. Screw this economy and this sh*tty career path and my inability to come up with any other.

Despite all this I ordered Bones season 3 for my birthday this weekend. I only treat myself twice a year; I'm allowed. Cannot wait cannot wait cannot waaaaaiiiit. *L* I'm such a silly fangirl.

There’s no telling what emotions he has stamped across his face, only that they’re there and he can’t get them off.

From Same as Never by rallalon. I like that line. It's a poetic line.

So, I haven't updated in ages and a day. Don't know what to say. I was sick. Got the flu from a friend, and am still battling off a wheezing cough. I even called in sick one day (I NEVER do that). On the plus side, I discovered that TNT shows Bones in the middle of the day. Scooooore. TNT: feeding my Bones addiction. Not much else to say. Have seen the B-52s, Tears for Fears, and Los Lobos as part of the zoo concert series, and Indigo Girls is this Friday. Week after that I'm flying back to Minnesota/Wisconsin for my old college roommate's wedding. Busy busy busy. Oh, and I'm seeing Harry Potter on Thursday. Yessssss. It's been far too long without new Potter.

This has nothing to do with Parker, I love my son more than anything, it's just seriously she could have given me like an hours notice at least that she was going to drop him at my doorstep, in need of a shower and completely starving.

The only things in my fridge right now are beer and um.. Maybe a stick of carrot?

Perfect. I’ll just make him beer carrot stew. Sounds fan-freaking-tastic.

Beer carrot stew. *snork* That's the funniest thing I've heard in ages. From Falling Asleep With An Anthropologist by SomethinLikeLove. Filled with witty little snippets like that.

I think I had more to say, but I'm tired and I think I may be coming down with something. Bah.
memento1: (Default)
Thing the first: Wow. Eating asparagus really does make your pee smell. This post brought to you by TMI. *L*

Thing the second: [ profile] lunayoshi tagged me for this meme.

Comment to this entry and I'll pick three of your fandoms. Then, update your journal and answer the following questions:

01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

X-Files, Dr. Who, and Bones )

So this got me thinking: do you guys save fics on your computer? If so, how do you organize them? My "Fic" folder is divided by fandom. Within each show's folder I store fics I can see myself re-reading someday. There's also a few folders:

READ: My "To Do" list. Fics that have been recced I want to read.
Wow: My absolute favorite fics.
And if any one author wrote a bunch of fics I love, they get their own folder.

So how do you do it?

And on an unrelated note, Adam better win Idol tonight.

Let me describe the awesomeness.

First off, there was the Bones season finale. )

And then there was MASSIVE Who spoilers! )

And of course shows start on SATURDAY at the zoo, which means many run-throughs on stage in front of the crowds. Such a thrill! I'm so nervously excited. Plus I'm completely turned over on the green-wing (I love my parrots!) and handling the golden eagle bit by bit. Life is grand!
memento1: (OT - Fandom?)
OMG, I'm getting myself into a tizzy over Bones tonight. And the thing is I don't even get to watch it tonight! I'm going over to a friend's for a previous social engagement so I won't get to see it until tomorrow and the anticipation is KILLING me.

A little too much anticipatory squealing )

I'm going to die. Yes I am. And I know I must be the last fan on the planet to know about this, but I'm getting the brunt of it now and the next 24 hours will be ridiculously spent daydreaming about the million directions this could go.

Oh, and to the TV Gods: Please, I've been a good little fangirl. Don't get my hopes up just to dash them. I'm fine with a surprise twist ending. I'm actually HOPING for a surprise twist ending that will leave everything angsty and tense and unfulfilled, but please don't make it all a dream or similarly unreal. If it is, I'll take it and still squeal relentlessly (a la the SG-1 Grace kiss), but it would be nice to have some honest to goodness canon for the long summer ahead. Hopelessly yours,

-this squealing little fangirl
