officially on vacation \o/

I AM A PROCRASTINATING QUEEN. So many things to do, had weeks to do it and I did, like, 3 things. Now I have 2.5 days left to pack and clean and everything else. What have I been doing instead?

** Reading Klaine & Merlin big bang fics.

** Playing with my shiny Sony Touch E-Reader (mine's red) which, holy crap, is already discontinued cause they've introduced a wifi version. Bonus: the reader and the case were all purchased using my Sony points :D

** This adorable Jonathan Groff interview on his father's farm.

He has the best laugh. And awesome legs :) He named his dog, Jesse St James! And a goat, Lea Michelle! The fainting goat, awwwwwwww. His boyfriend Zachary Quinto is one lucky dude.

** Watched The Secret Circle pilot because of Thomas Dekker and Gale Harold. Not bad, I'll give episode 2 a go. But Faye? Already annoys the hell out of me.

** Remember my German soap opera addiction months back? Well, I fell out of it because the 2 couples that I followed both had their Big Happy Moment. And we all know what happens to couples on soaps after that. They're either regulated to the background or someone cheats and the couple breaks up. Both of these things happened to Ollian and DeRo and since I like happy endings, I just pretended that their storyline was over. Then I read that Dennis Grabosch, who plays Roman (the 'Ro' of DeRo) has decided to leave the show and the writers were going to kill off Roman. So I started watching again. THE TEARS, PEOPLE. Basically, the last 3 episodes have made me into a crying mess. RIP Roman Wild and so ends the awesome couple that was DeRo =( And kudos to the writers and especially the actors who completely nailed it.

The only other time a soap has ever made me cry was the transplant story on General Hospital -- when Felicia realizes the heart that her daughter received was BJ's? *sob sob sob* Anyone remember that?

** Between crying my eyes out over a fictional couple, I've been amused (and, at times, exasperated) at the Glee fandom reaction as spoilers surface with the premiere date just around the corner. The endless discussion of whether or not Blaine is transferring to McKinely and the when, why & how. Let's declare Blaine a complete fashion disaster based solely on the promo commercial! Will there be a Puck/Quinn part 2 (YAY! vs BOO!). A lot of "I didn't even watch The Glee Project but I hate them already so get them off the show!" Looking for conspiracy theories based on actor's tweets, seriously (again, this mainly has to do with the winners of TGP). So much teeth gnashing and whining over nothing *shakes head*

Is it weird that I was bummed when I found out I won't be in town when Glee returns? I'm sure hotels won't mind me d/l'g shows, would they?

** Is it also weird that I'm strangely excited about the possibility of watching Doctor Who and possibly Merlin in England, on BBC One, and not on my computer or on Space?

** Speaking of Merlin. Lots of promotional pictures from the new season but a couple of them have caught fandom's eye Collapse )

** Off to bed now as tomorrow will be a busy busy day. I fly out on the 19th and will return on the 7th. See y'all on the flip side!

hangin' tough

OHMYGOD IT'S HAPPENING!!!!!  The Today Show.  Friday, April 4th.  Someone needs to record this for posterity.  I'm gonna have to wake up early cause I can't miss this!!  *is amused how excited I am over this*  Props to  bauersgirl   for the link.  She knows me too well ;)

Mother Nature decided to give us a beautiful day yesterday -- 14C, sunny -- only to yank it away from us today.  Now that was a cruel April Fool's Day joke.  In other news, I learned what a "rickroll" was.  I also fell for a prank on one of the comms I frequent.  Had a suspicion it was a prank but followed it through just in case it wasn't.

I woke up today and wondered which day of the week it was.  Then I decided what does it matter as I'm living in the office.  The days have started to blend together.  28 days til normal life resumes.  BTW, if you're claiming moving expenses or sold shares or self-employed or have an enormous amount of medical receipts and we're doing your tax return?  We hate you.  A LOT. 

Booked my vacation for Taiwan/Japan (July 24 - August 8) and for TIFF (Sept 5 - 12).  It can't come fast enough.
firefly: mal good day

vacation yay!

I'm officially on vacation, people!!  OK, I've been officially on vacation for about an hour now but I'm finally leaving the office!!  WHEEEEEE!!!!!  No thoughts of stupid clients and stupid files and stupid work for 2 whole weeks!!  And it couldn't come soon enough.  I am on the verge of inflicting some harm and/or outright quitting.

My plans are simple:

-- read  as I've been neglecting my books lately
-- lunch with walnut2
-- visit my friend, Monisha, and her new baby
-- get a mani pedi perhaps?
-- see a couple of plays in Stratford, Twelvth Night and Oliver
-- clean my insanely messy room
-- visit synaethete7
-- watch my Arrested Development and Supernatural DVDs
-- attempt to start running/walking again

and of course...

-- celebrity stalking at the film festival with bauersgirl and faninohio
