Not gonna lie -- I really want to sign up for hd_worldcup
. There's something about a blank sign-up template that makes my fingers twitch. *restrains self*
This Oscars season has me flailing like crazy. Milk, Slumdog Millionaire, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seven Pounds... FOUR OF THE BEST MOVIES I'VE EVER SEEN, and all released in one awards season. Benjamin Button is one movie everyone needs to see at one point in time. It's fantastic. My goal is to watch all the potential major Oscar nominees, so Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Frost/Nixon, Revolutionary Road (*cringe*), Changeling, and The Reader when it's released are next.
I told myself I would write SKOM today. Instead I wound up writing 6k of a WiP I started a few days ago. *facepalm* I messaged person958
about using the prompt that I bitched for weeks about not getting in hd_inspired
(the Harry getting stuck in the Mirror of Erised one). I'm trying to approach this one the same way I approached P.S. I Love You, i.e. by not worrying about making it good and just writing whatever pops into my head. That way I might actually finish this fic, though the chances are very slim.
Gah. Dentist (root canal... *whimpers*) and work all day tomorrow, when I'd much rather spend the day reading more hd_hols fics. Speaking of, go read He Dreams in Monochrome
! It's incredibly angsty and focuses heavily on the issue of infidelity at its ugliest. I realise it might not be for everyone, but I personally loved it, ambiguous ending and all. Once Upon A Time, Yesterday
is also fantastic.
Also! I finally sent out holiday cards today, LOL. Tell me when you guys get them, k? :x
