healingmirth: Glitch from Tin Man: "o.O" (Glitch)
Everyone has those stories by now, right? With youtube or netflix or amazon, where the recommendations make you go O.o and then, suddenly. It's like they get you, and it's the best thing that happens that week?

(At which point it has just occurred to me, youtube hasn't recommended a Tom Hardy interview to me in a long time. I must be slacking.)

So yesterday, I don't remember what brought me to youtube in the first place. Cat video, probably. And then:

Aaron Tveit and Gavin Creel - Take me or Leave Me )

I'm not especially an Aaron Tveit fan? I think I've only seen him in the Les Mis movie, and I didn't watch the live Grease because honestly I just forgot, but I think I remember reviews saying that it went with too much of a campy wink. BUT. Much like the hype around Channing Tatum and Magic Mike XXL, I would be totally okay with Tveit taking periodic breaks from his Important Acting to just be fun and hot and into it for 5 minutes, more often.

(stray thought #2. Have you guys heard about this Magic Mike Vegas thing? Idek. Google it.)

and THEN most likely by the combined powers of having watched Kristen Chenoweth singing 'For Good' with audience member Sarah Horn a lot of times, and yesterday's broadway spiral:

Hot off the presses, or at least it was this morning when I went back to watch Aaron and Gavin strut around some more: #OutOfOz Kristen Chenoweth and Idina Menzel - For Good )

It's not like either of them were Plucked from Obscurity for their roles in Wicked to change their lives, but there's something really, really lovely about them singing "For Good" together, again, a decade later and out(ish) of character. Out of costume at any rate.

I watch the news because sometimes (usually) I'm a little lazy and I want someone else to curate the information being presented to me, but sometimes...

The second to last segment of the NBC national evening news tonight went like this: Dylan O'Brien injured on Maze Runner set; first woman to be nominated to lead a US combatant command; eaglet born at the national arboretum.

Stolen from many people, but most recently [personal profile] marginaliana

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous.

so. many. abandoned. files )

it's cute how this folder says 'active WIP' )

And I dumped off two Mike/Jeff snippets onto AO3 the other day. From the "active" folder. So.

I really wish I could make myself write some of those Arthur/Eames ones. There are a whole lotta words in some of them, but it's been so long, argh.

I feel like I should combine this with some other form of talking-about-writing meme. Many, if not most, of those files have shown up in some past list meme.

Edit: wow, I found an wip old meme, which I had locked because I think I repurposed one of the story bits for yuletide, and I am... not sure where some of those files are anymore. So there's more than *waves hands* all this, somewhere.

What does it say about my current "entertainment" options that watching six episodes of Making a Murderer today was the least infuriating of them?

Gaming: holy shit, I hate Dudes on the Internet so much

Hockey: Holy shit, I hate Dudes on the Internet so much

Making a Murderer: holy shit, I hate two, maybe four, highly specific people. (From what I understand, that will probably get worse.)

And at least my best friend has also watched Making a Murderer, where she has zero interest in either the hockey or the gaming, so there can be mutual venting.

Also, possibly everything about tennis is terrible? I shouldn't say that, I'm just sad about Rafa. The rest of the men's field and pretty much everyone I care about on the women's side is fine. I'm just prepared for it to be terrible.

Icon anti-related, except snow, and that commercial still makes me happy. Also currently improving my life: these Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. And the snow really is pretty.
healingmirth: RayK and Fraser, frozen (frozen)
It just, absolutely and completely literally, took me 40 minutes to drive 1.5 miles.

The Snow is projected to start falling in roughly 12 hours from now, and everyone has lost their damn minds.

My blizzard preparations are now complete: a bag of cedar balls for my clothes sorting/storing project, and a Chipotle burrito because I like to live dangerously.

I guess Galavant is back? Is it likely to make me mad re: Princess Whoever's current prospects?

I just yesterday deleted the current season of a show off my DVR because it was time to admit I was never going to watch it, and today I could not even begin to guess what show it was. Not Suits, though I gave up on that too.

Things I am not yet ready to admit I'm never going to get to: I've got the whole current season of The Librarians somewhere. And most of S2 of Fargo. And Teen Wolf, I guess? And all of this season of The Blacklist. Argh.

Also, belatedly both in the sense of announcing it, and in the sense that I lolwhoops defaulted at the posting deadline, for yuletide I gave Tim Gutterson a cat

...(but trust me, I made an unusual number of atypical choices this afternoon) I just spent a literal hour literally standing in Starbucks talking to a guy who I have not seen, or indeed even thought of, since we graduated from high school over 20 years ago.

Probably just as well that if that conversation was going to happen, that we had it while caffeinated, as opposed to slightly drunk, as would have happened if I'd bothered going to our reunion.

Although I probably would have been able to break away in way less than an hour.

Life is weird, yo.
healingmirth: Coca-Cola bear with Yuletide text (yuletide)

Christmas Eve (2015)

Hilarity, romance, and transcendence prevail after a power outage traps six different groups of New Yorkers inside elevators on Christmas Eve.

Will probably have less porn in it than if written by fandom, but still excited to have learned this exists. Please don't be terrible.

blathering about a kitten, and dudes who are intensely uncurious, or something. The kitten is fine, now )

Also, vet who is not my usual vet, thank God - fuck you, wanting a defenseless animal to be safe doesn't need to be my "maternal instinct kicking in."

So yeah, hi.

I'm still around, mostly. Stuff's been weird, in general. IDK. There's a lot that I'm basically writing off until new years resolution time, and I'm real glad I canceled my signup for Hockey Holidays, even if I had prompts and pairings in my requests that would have made for great fic. Managing Yuletide is going to be enough of a challenge without splitting my energy, and I have missed fully a week+ of my mini-wrimo commitment, after a really good start, sigh.

Wheeeeeee, yuletide!

In general (and moreso than usual, as I have straight up copied this from last year: a few general things )
