- sinuses trying to leave head THROUGH FACE. this had better have stopped before i have to get on a small, poorly-pressurised plane at 7.30am tomorrow. or else i shall be forced to... well. to whine. always an effective way of solving one's problems, no?

+ watchmenicons (but now i am in too-many-choices-aiieeee mode. i dither. note to self: midsummer resolution is to Be More Decisive. Maybe.)

++ dreams - kanzenhanzai may have stolen my brain; saturday text message reads "dreamt abt laurie dressed as a man and pegging rorschach". am slightly jealous because when i'm using it my brain hardly ever gives me the good stuff. however, yesterday it did choose to enliven a four hour i-feel-like-crap nap with a lot of weird dreams and one that morphed from bike-related anxiety into rooftop escapades of the escaping kind with dan (not nite owl - he was definitely in civvies). there was dual paragliding and/or use of zip lines and grappling things (somehow at the same time, as likes to happen in dreams). and the glasses. subconscious, i thank you!

?+? super squid sex organ discovered

"When the mantle of the squid was opened for maturity assessment, we witnessed an unusual event. The penis of the squid, which had extended only slightly over the mantle margin, suddenly started to erect, and elongated quickly to 67cm total length, almost the same length as the whole animal." The squid's sexual agitation caught the researchers by surprise.

my reaction to this story indicates that i may have failed my own maturity assessment.

so, as we have previously established

i am strongly in favour of arms.

oh look. arms!


my reactionCollapse )

c'mon flist. *tempts* there is angst! and pretty! and arms! and canonical costume-kink! and awesome fic that i am actually tagging sort of consistently with delicious which is frankly a near-miraculous situation given that i have the organisation skills of piece of cheese. anyway, while you think about it, please make basic life decisions for me again:

it's 23:21, you pulled a muscle in your back riding your bike, tomorrow you have to write stuff for work, and plants are having public sex all over the place and making your mucus membranes itchy and sore. you should:

go to bed at once
have a lovely cold beer
write more wingfic
post photo of seal flippers (nb flippers were not attached to seal when picture was taken)
watch some damn leverage (i am so behind!)
rewatch the bits of watchmen that feature arms as per above
find out when the a-team will finally reach penultima thule
overdose on antihistamines

eta: two hours have passed. i have achieved 3/4 of a beer and made a lot of comments. in my own journal. i feel quite productive!

# am lost in an endless succession of watchmen kink meme comments and, uh, plus4chan threads. remember how i used to feel weird about fanart*? well it seems all i needed was a comic-based fandom. and perhaps to develop pervier eyeballs. plus, stuff like this? has helped. a lot. there might have been noises. i am not at liberty to say. nrrrrrgh. anyway, re: that pervier eyeballs project? i'm making a note here: big success!

# need new laptop. this one is... quite unwell. so, a new thing i have discovered i hate: comparison shopping for laptops online. because everything i really want is twice my budget. *COVETS SHINY TECHNOLOGIES*

# via mr thipe a sparkly humicorn!Collapse )

# stuff kanzenhanzai has persuaded me not to do this month: change my lj title to heroin and child pornography (context for those eyeing me with concern). things she has tried to talk me into: deleting all my interests and replacing them with WATCHMEN & CRUSTACEANS. in all caps if possible. things she has enabled: email conversations about whether or not jon has to pee.

# yesterday i saw some seagulls eating a baby oystercatcher. the circle of life: not always funtimes!

# crap, it's half past six and i still haven't been out on the bike. back in 10-15 miles. bike ride replaced by freaking out as per next entry. :/

*or not - i may have only discussed this in person so as to avoid implying that i thought people who didn't share my weird feelings sucked, since nuance is easier face-to-face! it was definitely in the category of "things i can't get into but i am not really sure why not". possibly it was one of my few lines re: RPS? or an allergy to photo-manips? i have always been gleefully comfortable with, sayyyyy, ncis: gay_in_la comic strips.

# behind on comments & busy busy BUSY. *kicks work and clings to internet*

# defriending kanz IN REAL LIFE as i type. (for informing me that the real reason i like both joe dick and rorschach is because i am attracted to fictional men with poor personal hygiene. MEAN GIRL is what i'm saying here. suggest shunning. mmhmmm.) eta: she is doing it MORE *cries*Collapse )

\u/ - there are watchmen igoogle themes! i will be looking so professional at work when i google stuff, oh yes.

/u\ - there's one of the comedian titled "the man of men". yeah no. fuck off.

\u\ - i do not know what to DO with myself over ridiculously intense new obsession1! can i friend everyone who wrote fic i liked and not look like a weirdo stalker? and will they expect me to have SMRT CONTENT? other people have been in the fandom for aaaages. all my "insights" (shut up. in my head i am SO insightful. er... please do not now imagine the intellectual level at which conversations with myself usually plateau. it's still more stimulating than talking to the rats, ok?) and squee will be old hat! (also there seem to be many people with great wodges of writing talent. all my never-leaving-the-hard-drive/googledocs watchporn efforts so far look v. crap in comparison.) yes, yes, i know: so much suffering, woe etc! except for how i am at the gleeful FIRST CRUSH NEW LOVE EVERYTHING IS SHINY WANT stage of things and basically ♥!♥ (i have so many tabs open despite my amazingly slow connection. so many tabs!)

this post brought to you by poor planning = unhurt soooooo huuuuungry. (roasting a chicken. but i forgot it was necessary to begin actually roasting in a timely fashion until after 7pm. food will be ready in some hours. and my house has, for some reason, NO SNACKS in it. unless tinned fruit is a snack? or dry cereal? or... rat treats?)

and hey - lj has et my comments again.

p.s. i am indeed a genius! in that, ahem, i made this signal boost post? and only just noticed that i stuffed up the url to amazonziti's post. lucky kanz and meres also linked to it properly, and i linked to them. *palms face for a while*

1complete with mental mary-sue scenarios. which - no, really. STOP. THAT. BRAIN? i am speaking to y-- oh. huh. if you put it that way then i... need so much help, basically?

... of course, when i said "go to bed at 9.30", apparently i meant "gleefully read kinkmeme. whimper. repeat."

unrelated: i hate everyone who is seeing the a-team before it gets to where i am. :eyes you all unhappily:

eta: oh my imaginary gods. UNF. (the world always requires more pegging fic. also, kdjdasfvjhebaebqvubveqbevq doesn't begin to cover it.)

pop-philosophy - i should know this stuff will annoy me! (full disclosure: i am not, and have never pretended to be, a philosopher. i did share a flat with a philosophy student once, but our since conversations tended to be about such profound issues as who's turn it was to go to the off-licence and the the exact size of the slug that invaded the kitchen the night before, i fear i have no special insight.) dear ethics guy in chapter 7 of watchmen & philosophy -

Rorschach, being single-minded in his pursuit of justice (or his sense of it, at least), has no concern for what might happen if he reveals Veidt's conspiracy.

...or he might have concerns but feel consider that they're not an admissible part of the rorschach decision-making process. i just think this is an important distinction!

we have reached the *is feeling shirty on behalf of a fictional character* stage already? all is lost. and i really do need some icons!

also, i have owned this book for an hour. /u\

am pretty sure post-nuclear-apocalypse fic ought not to make me this happy

Jun. 7th, 2010 | 05:34 pm

me: almost everyone is horribly dead, noooo. /u\
me again: yeah. but. it's AWESOME. also i suspect there is some seriously messed-up and angsty fucking on the cards.
me redux: hmm. should i feel some shame at this point? possibly. oh well. *returns to joyous wallowing*

# last night i slept for 16 hours, from 6pm, while not sick - am i about to pupate?

# *blames sionnain* may be buying ticket to see drive by truckers play in glasgow this november. cannot stop listening to decoration day:

I never knew how it all got started
a problem with Holland before we were born
and I don’t know the name of that boy we tied down
and beat till he just couldn’t walk anymore.

# have had more watchmen thoughts re: ozymandias and rorschach. probably none of them original.Collapse )

# of course, not all my thoughts are even that deep. kanz's involve "dan dreiberg: kept man!" though, so i think she wins.Collapse )

in not-my-new-obsession news: ingrate rats have eaten fancy (and expensive) new rat hammock. that was orange camouflage fleece, you destructive wee beasts. i chose it specially!
