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 [livejournal.com profile] bayareajenn who got an interview! Heeee!! That's the best feeling in the world. Yay happy good times!

Bones!!!

The Tough Man in the Tender Chicken )

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. ;)
memento1: (XF - Represent)
It's really that time again. And yes, almost 12 years after becoming a phile I still dork out about this date. Hehe. So! I decided an appropriate celebration would be to finally make that list of my Top Fic Picks: X-Files Edition. I wanted to make it a top 10 list, of course, but I couldn't possibly narrow it down to 10. So instead, the fics that have made it into my "Wow" folder - the best of the best, the ones I can read over and over again, and save for a rainy day. In no particular order:

Top X-Files Fics


1. Parabiosis by Penumbra ([livejournal.com profile] penumbra23) - Hands down my favorite fic of all time. Perhaps the best piece of literature I've ever read. The narrative is stumbling, strange, and entirely captivating because of it. The prose is magical. Certain scenes, lines, sections, stand out clear in my mind years after reading them. Better yet, I get something new out of it each time I read it, so it never gets old. Obviously I could go on and on, but most of you have read it already and I'm just preaching to the converted. So, perhaps a given, but definitely a classic. Aaaaand, since I'm obviously such a sucker for her writing, Penumbra has two other fics on my list:

2. Black Hole Season by Penumbra - Penumbra Lite. All of the magical scenes and lines and style of Parabiosis without the novel length. The ideal of what a short story can be - moving, thought-provoking, simple and yet deep.

3. Contact High by Penumbra - I think I've raved about her style enough. So I'll skip it here, but this fic is a standard of how in the right hands, what sounds like a silly premise (Mulder and Scully telepathically share thoughts and feelings after the events of Field Trip) can be magical.

4. Bridge by Maria Nicole - Deals with the same premise as Contact High in a similarly astounding way. I can never, ever forget the magic of their dream world.

5. 12 Rites of Passage and 12 Degrees of Separation by Anne Haynes - Absolutely my default when I want a long, engaging story to snuggle away and read for a few days. Because Anne has mastered the art of bringing the reader to the edge and keeping them waiting. It's like Harry Potter that way - I just can't put it down.

6. Arizona Highways by Fialka ([livejournal.com profile] fialka) - For novel-length fics, this comes right behind Parabiosis as a favorite. Another fic I cannot put down, and end up doing nothing but reading for 3 days straight. The story is complex and engaging, enough to pull me in against my will. And it has perhaps the most memorable love confession I've ever seen or read. It had me breaking down alongside Mulder. For me it's not just a story - it's an experience.

7. Blinded by White Light by Dasha K. ([livejournal.com profile] dashakay) - Another classic, and for good reason. I still can't put my finger on exactly what it is that makes it so good. But somehow in the unique trappings of a sci-fi future, it is one of the best love stories I've ever read, while not shying away from the very real issues that result.

8. Spectacular by Rafferty - Let's take a break from the novels for a short one-shot, my guily pleasure feel-good escape for when I'm in a bad mood. It absolutely never fails to brighten my spirits.

9. An Alluring Indiscretion by Beduini and M. Taylor Harrison - Another long fic that captivates and enthralls and untimately sticks out in my mind for its astounding visualizations.

10. Salt by Anjou - A tender, feel-good fic, with dreams and stories along the way that slowly bring about the meaning.

11. Five Years and One Night by Shalimar - Another fabulous mythology story that covers all extremes - from fantastically hot smut to some of the deepest, darkest angst. Fabulous story, hot sex, and the. best. breakdown scene I have ever read. Scully's breakdown on the beach is some of the most visceral, real, emotional writing I have ever read.

12. What Happens to the Dreamers by Buckingham - Buckingham weaves a story between the events of season 7, specifially the whole IVF situation revealed in Per Manum. A fascinating glimpse of what we didn't see, and I'm a sucker for the at times flowery, poetic language.

13. The Cycles Series: Lucid Dreaming by Prufrock's Love - The first in the Cycles series, Lucid Dreaming really stood out as a fantastic bit of immersive storytelling. A calming, meditative journey, especially for that time of the month. ;)

14. 99 and 44/100ths Percent Done by Sarah Segretti - Just a fun old romp of a casefile. Doesn't take itself too seriously, but has fun, UST, and some delicious, delicious ice cream.

15. Adagio by Terma99 - A short Milagro post-ep that is heart-breaking and touching at the same time.

16. Syncopation by Lilla Vaughan AKA Nanda ([livejournal.com profile] nandamai) - Sweet, sappy flick-fick. And I'm a sucker for it.

SO! That's the list. There are so many others that are close to making it - The Magician Book series by Suzanne Bickerstaffe and Jennifer Lyon, Acadia by RivkaT, Blood Oranges by Syntax6, and many, many more - but I'm tired and that's a pretty good list. So yay X-Files! Just putting this list together re-awakened my inner phile, who's now screaming for me to re-read all these fics, or at least watch an episode. So I guess you know what I'll be doing the rest of the evening. Hehe. So happy 10/13, my fellow philes. *mwah* I love you all, and I hope this community never dies.

Woohoo?

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 FF.net 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?

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: [livejournal.com 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: (DW - tardis)
I did a program today at a library, just bringing a few animals and biofacts (animal skins, skulls, etc.) and informally talking to people as they came up. I held a snake the kids could pet and it's so fun to see the nervous little toddlers come up and hesitantly touch it. I like to think that all those kids will grow up to not be afraid of snakes like their parents are - they'll learn to see the value in all life. Anyways, it made me proud, and there was even a journalist who asked a few questions and took a few photos - just a small bit for the local paper, but how exciting! I still can't quite believe this is my job.

Anyways, have been reading a fantastic fic the last few days (The Oft Dark Path of Dreams, by SCAngel), and I highly recommend you do the same. Love you all. Nighty night.

V-Day!

I have SO MUCH I wanted to write about, including seeing Bridget from The Girls Next Door AND an NCIS van yesterday (on the same day!), plus that X-Files meme, and...oh, the phone interview I had on Tuesday (went well enough, will probably hear by next week), but now it turns out I will be working ALL DAY tomorrow (from 6:30 AM pretty much straight through to 11 PM), so I need to post a V-Day post now. Plus some things I'd already written out for that update. SO,

Thing the First: I LOVE you all. You all live in a little portion of my brain entitled "flist" that I love dearly and could not live without, so thank you, thank you, thank you for providing me entertainment, listening to all my stupid ramblings, and being there for all the ups and downs and RL and fandom and general craziness of my life. I wanted to make a big silly red heart graphic for you all, but again with the time thing! Just know I love you and I hope you all have a wonderful V-Day and feel the love I'm sending your way. *BIG GIANT SNOOGLY HUGS*

Thing the Second: thoughts on this week's Lost and American Idol. )

Thing the Third: Fic exerpt! )

Today. Was. EPIC. [livejournal.com profile] lunayoshi and [livejournal.com profile] balmyone came over for a marathon, and we fangirled out. It was mainly XF-centered so we watched Firewalker, Field Trip, Pusher, and Our Town, as well as pretty much all the IWTB special features. [livejournal.com profile] balmyone and I insisted that [livejournal.com profile] lunayoshi had to get into Doctor Who with us, so we forced her to watch Rose and probably chatted her ear off about Eleven, and David's lovelife, and who knows what else. Oh! And look what [livejournal.com profile] balmyone lent me!



Russell T Davies' book! It's as thick as a textbook and just as packed, but I'm so excited to start it. I was skimming and already love it. Heeeeee!

Speaking of, I have some DW fic recs:

Donna Noble: Beta Reader. The funniest fic since XF's "Case of the Cotton Candy Clones". You may just pee your pants laughing.

Elusive by englshangel. Easily one of my favorite fics in the fandom after just one read. TenII/Rose, set in the alt!verse, and by far my favorite version of what would have happened immediately post-JE.

Dirt by jezebel. Hot and funny all rolled into one for a tremendously entertaining read. Jezebel's writing reminds me of Penumbra's, which is the highest compliment I can give a fic.

Go! Read! Be happy! I have a date with my bed....nighty night.
memento1: (DW - Lux)


Also: Fun little brilliant DW fic. I watched The Santa in the Slush (Bones, people) the other day and it was beyond awesome. I'm generally fangirly about any Christmas episode of my shows (How the Ghosts Stole Christmas, Noel, In Excelsis Deo, The Christmas Invasion), but this brought it to the 10th degree and then added a kiss. *L* Loved it. The ending of the second new episode was also made of adorable. *shifty eyes, trying to avoid being outright spoilery*

“Right!” the Doctor rubbed his hands together. “As it happens I do have a bit of a favour to ask you, Mickey. There is the teensiest, tiniest, miniscule possibility that you may have possibly noticed some kind of mini situation between me and Rose.”

Mickey eyed him. “You mean the honking great tension? The enormous silences and thick atmosphere. The shifty looks and avoiding each other and not talking or holding hands and generally not acting smug and couple-y.” A beat. “You mean that?”

“Yeah, that’d be it.”

Mickey shook his head. “Didn’t notice.” He shovelled a fork of mushrooms into his mouth.

Hahahaha. Mickey is so awesome sometimes.

Random post of squee. I'm wrapping myself in fandom. Thought I'd share ;)

Music: Randomly checked out some of Billie Piper's music the other day and actually ended up really liking some of it. But the song stuck on repeat lately has been Josh Groban's You Are Loved (Don't Give Up) ever since I heard it here:



I've been working my way through seduff's fabulous Doctor Who vids, and this only just scratches the surface. When I'm done watching them all, I'll link all my favorites in a special post (lucky you! hehe).

Art: I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] time_and_chips advent calendar, and then worried I would never get around to actually making something, so I worked all day on my entry. It's a manip I've had the idea for building up in my head for a while. Only now I SO wanna share because I'm pretty happy with the outcome. December needs to get here faster! The problem lately has been that all my muse wants to make is manips, but they're so time-consuming, I need some sort of prompt to get me to actually sit down and make them. But I really enjoy the thrill of manipulations - the attention to detail and tiny technical challenges. I learn something new every time. Anyways...

Fic: I've been trying to find the best Doctor/Rose fic, and while my personal favorite by far has been But Broken Lights by [livejournal.com profile] rosa_acicularis, I'm currently working my way through [livejournal.com profile] hippiebanana132's two fabulous Thirteen series. They're WONDERFUL and I don't know what I'll do once I've reached the end. Another rec: The Calm Before the Storm by Kalleah. It's so wonderful to have a brand-new fandom to jump into and find all the hidden gems.

Anyways, it's now 2:40 AM and I really should get to sleep. Bad Mem, bad!

There is no order to this entry. Just to give you fair warning ;)

ZOMGZOMGZOMG I got an e-mail from the MN Zoo!!! My heart skipped a beat, then leapt into my throat when I saw it. I'm still under consideration!!! I'm so happy I could faint. I spent the day celebrating - by playing N64, watching 3rd Rock and Evan Almighty, and reading fic. ;) So, excellent, excellent news, but proof that the fight is far from over. The next step is to send in a DVD of myself doing "a live animal presentation". Luckily I already have a video of myself hosting a show, but it's in MiniDV format so I found a company that will transfer it to DVD and edit it to the 15-minute limit. It'll cost about $40. Blah. Anyways, the deadline for sending that in is SEPTEMBER 22nd, which gives me plenty of time to do that, but also means this process is going to be incredibly slow. This job ends Tuesday (eep!), so...I'm going to have a looooot of free time the rest of the month.

So, um, yaaaaaaaay! I was getting really depressed about my chances, and this was a badly-needed boost. Thank goodness.

Other rambly bits: Paid time expired and GOOD LORD I forgot how hard it is to pick just 6 icons to keep. On the fic front, I reached Dance Without Sleeping in my ChronX read-through today, and ended up reading it all over again even though I just re-read it a few months ago. I enjoyed it much more this time around, for some reason. Finished season 1 of Doctor Who with [livejournal.com profile] balmyone and good lord, I'm hopeless. I was shipping Nine/Rose so bad by the end. I've been procrastinating starting season 2 because I want to bask in the beauty of that finale just a bit longer. I can't imagine transferring that feeling over to a new Doctor.

Fic Update: Cycles. Read it. Swoon. Float away in shippy warm fuzzy bliss.

Job: No update. *sigh*

Movies: Caught The Sound of Music on TV last night (and again tonight!). Ridiculously cute movie. Forgot how lovely it is. Have been listening to soundtrack all day.
memento1: (OT - Fandom?)
The Good:

SeaWorld! )

The Bad:

Every day, every hour that I don't hear back from the Minnesota Zoo breaks my heart just a little bit more. I'm far too used to having my dreams crushed. I know one week isn't enough time to start freaking out over, but I want that job so badly, and I'm frankly terrified of going back into the soul-crushing job search again. There's only 2 weeks left of work and I'm dreading going back to that jobless, bored, stressed out blankness. I'm not excited about any of the job openings out there and the idea of moving yet again to a place where I don't know anyone into a job I don't like is almost as wearying as the thought of having no job at all. I haven't even applied to anything else, and I know I should have started ages ago, and that guilt just combines with the terror already in place to form a self-sustaining spiral of avoiding the problem. I need to start applying, I desperately do, so I'll just need to try to lift myself out of my terror long enough to do so...tomorrow.

The Average:

I miss the Olympics. I loved coming home every day and watching primetime coverage until 1 in the morning. I loved the gymnastics, and the running, and the diving, and even their silly journalistic stories of China. I loved having it on in the background even if I wasn't actively watching. I loved the expressions of joy on the winners' faces, and even the pangs of sadness for those that failed. I loved feeling proud of my country, yet feeling like a global citizen, that these feelings were universal. A ridiculously cute and sappy set of Olympics commercials from a few years ago:



My favorites? Coragem (Courage), Bronze, and Prata (Silver).

BONUS Fic Update: I really, really enjoyed Cubed. A fascinating look at an alternate universe Mulder and Scully, in domestic bliss, and how that relates to reality. At first it sounded like so much idealized mush, but by the end I loved the message: that they are not broken beyond repair, that they can learn to get past their fears and live and love freely and openly.

She observed Samantha and Fox, together and smiling, the children licking ice cream from their spoons, the cozy little house, the baby wiggling around in her belly. Their lives were so blissfully normal. Scully had to force down the sudden urge to go search the closets to see where they were hiding the mutants.
memento1: (OT - Fandom?)
Look what arrived today!



My birthday present to myself. ;) Ska-weeeee! All Things and Amor Fati and Je Souhaite and Closure, Hollywood A.D., Theef, Chimera, X-Cops, Requiem! Woohoo!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] balmyone was gracious enough to let me burn some of her DVDs, and we started watching Doctor Who - the first of the new series (with the Ninth Doctor and Rose). We watched about 6 episodes and I really got into it. I've got the remainder of season 1 to get through, and then I'll have to search for season 2. I'm gonna miss Nine! I like Ten, but Nine really really grew on me (as did Rose. Rose is awesome! I can't imagine trying to adjust to a new pair). So yay new show!

Also? CSI spoilers so good. I might actually have to watch this season. Now I just want that friggin' ring!!

Fic Update: Reading Cry of the Truth by A.I. Irving. Quite a good novel-length fic. If smut is your thing ;)
memento1: (OT - Pants!)
I am alive! I'm just terribly lackadaisical about posting. I'm STILL not up on the flist, so my apologies. Any big news that I've missed?

I felt like I should put down more coherant thoughts on the movie, but...I'm lazy, and it's all been rehashed a thousand times anyway. Right now I'm all a-squee over X-Files Marathon #2 with [livejournal.com profile] balmyone tomorrow (sorry, [livejournal.com profile] lunayoshi, but it's just not worth the hour's drive up for half a day. Tell us when you have a full day off and we'll see what we can do! Also, so need to go see movie again. Call me!).

Trip to Minnesota was wonderful. It was actually quite fun being a bridesmaid. The dress cost a fortune and is pretty much unusable ever again, but it was actually much prettier than I expected. There was lots of dancing, good food, good company. I made a new friend with another one of the bridesmaids - too bad she lives so far away! Anyways, there was the requisite amount of drama (groom acted like a 2-year old at times, and sister had a minor meltdown complete with family argument), but what else can you expect at a wedding? ;) The rest of the vacation went well - watched some movies with mom, visited the Minnesota Zoo (chatted with a very nice lady at the bird show about job opportunities...doing the bird show at the MN Zoo is a dream for me. I should send her a thank you note), ate ice cream and bought some new socks. Best part of the whole thing was July 25, squeeing with you all and meeting [livejournal.com profile] dashakay. I only wish we could have chatted longer, Dasha!

Anyways, back to usual here. Work work work. Boss is being pig-headed, but I'm having breakthroughs in the training of Kitambi, a young porcupine. Training that porc is the best part of my day - he's come so far and is so close to being put in shows! I'm bound and determined to get him in the show before we end September 9th. Speaking of, that is the day I return to unemployment, so I'm heading back into the job search (BLEAGH!! WHY?!?! I just finished with all of that sh*t!). So yay me. */sarcasm* In better news, I finished Parabiosis upon my return, which was just as astoundingly catching as the first time. Reaching the end was like reaching the end of the Harry Potter books - what can I possibly read now that will match it?

I watched a Nova special last night on Global Dimming, and it was depressing. Really, really depressing. I want to hide my head in the sand sometimes.

Oh! I got the XF2 soundtrack and am loving it. Dying 2 Live has actually grown on me, but Broken sends me into thrills, as it puts me right back in that theater seat with..ummm...you know what at the end of the credits. ;) Other favorites include No Cures/Looking for Fox, What If You're Wrong/Sister, and The Surgery. That's all for now. I'm finding voiceposts much easier than writing out actual entries, so I may do more of those. Much love to all of you!
memento1: (OT - Scrubs smile)
Guuuuh. I'm SO far behind on my flist. I'm sorry, everyone, but I just can't keep up, and I really don't want to do a friends cut. So I'm not ignoring you, I swear, and I'll try to be back up to running speed soon.

Also, thanks to everyone for the outpouring of support on my last entry. As suspected, I was perfectly fine by the next day, but everyone needs a little emo catharsis now and again. ;) I decided to re-read the fandom classics 12 Rites of Passage/12 Degrees of Separation, and just like a really good book I could NOT stop reading until I finished today. That's all I did when I got home from work until I went to bed. *L* So that was a nice escape.

What else? After a lot of drama, my bipolar co-worker is quiting, and I'm so glad because she's made my life a living hell. There's still the arrogant boss to contend with, but I'm looking forward to the remaining 2 months of work now.

Oh! X-Files! I can't believe it's only 2 weeks away! After ages of it being so far away, it's suddenly coming up so soon. I squeed when I saw ads on TV for it. The LA premiere is on the 23rd at 7:30. I work until at least 5, and have a flight from LAX at midnight, so I don't think I can make it, though I may pop by briefly if people are meeting up. I can't make an evening of it, though. Darn! Also, HUUUUGE spoilers are coming out about the movie and I'm desperately trying to avoid them. I've enjoyed the minor spoilers now and again until now, but I really do want to remain unspoiled from here on out. Who's with me?

I'm sure I had more to say, but...my mind is sieve. So what's up with you all?
memento1: (XF - fangirl)
First off, new header! I made this for the header challenge at [livejournal.com profile] xfiles, but it didn't win, so I'm using it! Heehee.

I went househunting today, as it was my day off. I'm looking to move into a new place in May, as the current rent is too high. One place in particular the people were really nice and friendly, and it's minutes from the Park, so I'm really excited about that. I just want to be sure that they have cable, because I forgot to ask and I can't live without my TV! Anyways, here's hoping it all works out.

I have a sh*tload of fics to review, both for ChronX and otherwise, but first, a little pimpage. *A-hem* [livejournal.com profile] sg1_lims, [livejournal.com profile] sg1_lims, [livejournal.com profile] sg1_lims! I'm not too hot on LIMS, but [livejournal.com profile] hsapiens is running it and I believe she will run the best darn LIMS anywhere, so come play! At least join and give feedback, because concrit makes the icon-maker's world go round.

Okay, on to the fics. First off, ChronX, Breakfast - Burning The Maps )

Other fics I've been reading )

And I think that is it...whew!
