Made of Fail and Win

First of all: Amazon Rank (from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books).

Secondly, remember how I pre-ordered Pushing Daisies season 2? Well, I canceled it, and told Amazon that I would buy it from their rival Play.com, along with everything else I usually would have bought from them until they fix this. But from the way this shitstorm has snowballed since I first heard about it, I'm thinking I'll just end up reordering it from Amazon, because I can't imagine they can keep this policy in place now.

I spent the last few days cleaning my apartment (taking stuff to the recycling center, tackling the balcony, buying new plants, etc), so today I took some time off. Which naturally led to watching more Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (I am completely smitten. Still).

But in an effort to not run out of episodes before noon (I only had four or five left this morning), I went back to Super Mario Galaxy, where I'd been stuck for a while. And because of my determination not to run out of episodes, I've now added 15 more stars, and I still have the last two episodes of T:TSCC to watch. I had meant to watch them tonight, but I got all caught up in link-hopping and now I still have episodes saved for tomorrow! Yay!

In all the Amazon excitement, I almost forgot the reason I had intended to post today: I got myself a Dreamwidth account! And for once I managed to snag my user name without underscores! I managed to import most of it okay, but the comment import was aborted on the first try, and when I tried it again, it imported them twice. Eeek! Weirdly, the comment count in my journal is correct, but in my user info I have twice the number of comments, and there are duplicate comments on every entry. Oh well.

If you've got an account, let me know!

It's never too early for basketball

I don't really post about TV anymore. I thought I'd remedy that.

And speaking of spoilers, even though I haven't really cared about getting spoiled for anything lately, the way people keep NOT cutting for reactions and outright plot spoilers is starting to really rub me the wrong way. Not to mention the numerous uncut images, which, at the correct size I'm mostly fine with, but people are getting sloppy there too. At least learn how to resize images with the html tag if nothing else. /PSA

Well, that was long.

The only other news I have is that I played the new MarioKart for Wii this weekend, and now my mind's definitely made up. Wii, here I come!

Fic! And TV! And icons! And Mario Kart!

Last night at around midnight I suddenly had the urge to reread the only The Cutting Edge fanfic I've ever found (and it's good!), so I took a break from my P&P fanfic reading (yes, STILL! There's a lot of fic to read, or perhaps I should say "wade through", because not all of it is readable) and spent two hours trying to find it. By the time I finally did I was too tired and frustrated to actually read it (I suck at tagging entries with tags that will actually help me find them again. Grrrr!).

I finally reread it on my lunch break and it was just as much fun as the first time. And just like last time it made me want to rewatch/icon/picspam the movie. Too bad I have to work (because everyone really needs to know all about Vaughniston and the other 101 Juciest Hollywood Hookups (that's actually the title of the show. Kill me now!)

I've also watched Collapse )

I finally uploaded a bunch of new icons to my gallery. I think it's been almost a month since my last update, but most of those are from this past week.

Aside from my nonstop P&P fic reading, I've mostly spent my free time this past month or so trying to win the gold on all the cups on my Mario Kart Double Dash game. Only two to go! (One of which is the All-Cup Tour, so, you know, gonna take a while because I prefer not to cheat and I'm not all that good at Mirror Mode.)

For practically the entire time I've played the game I've used Bowser, but I recently switched the second racer from Mini Mario to Toad. Toad is much more useful once you start becoming better at the game, I've found. And I'm sure you're all fascinated by this, so I'll stop now. *g*
