I have been remiss my friends!! I am so sorry. It's hard to get back into a habit. But I'm here! Hi!

I was making a post on Tumblr and struggling with their hideous text editor when I realized I HAVE A BETTER PLACE TO PUT IT! YAY! So have a MEME!

I saw a meme where people were listing ten favorite characters from ten fandoms and I AM DOING IT because 1) I like lists, 2) I like characters, and 3) I like procrastinating. WHEE.

Buffy – Faith Lehane

Battlestar Galactica – Kara “Starbuck” Thrace

Harry Potter – Hermione Granger (or Remus Lupin?? One for present, one for Marauder days!)

Supernatural - Dean Winchester

Stargate Atlantis – Rodney McKay

Avengers – Steve Rogers

Band of Brothers – Lewis Nixon

The Vampire Diaries – Caroline Forbes

Firefly – Simon Tam

Friday Night Lights – Lyla Garrity. Or Tami Taylor. Or Tim Riggins. Or everyone???

I notice that I have always fallen for secondary characters, dating back to my days in high school reading Anne McCaffrey and falling head over heels for the backup dudes like Afra, F’nor, and Sascha. (Yell at me if you recognize any of them!) I suppose Steve and Dean are the exceptions, but that’s my thing I guess. Maybe I like filling in the gaps left by the fact that they’re not the main focus of the story.

Mostly I want all the ladies on this list to hang out and exchange high fives and mutual expressions of support and admiration. <33333

As posted by [livejournal.com profile] crediniaeth, a meme!

- Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
- Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
- Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.

You get three guesses as to what my wallpaper is of. First two don't count. )

I really have been able to think of nothing but football (soccer...) recently. I honestly thought that after the World Cup I would sigh sadly and go back to my normal, football-less life, BUT NO. Bastian Schweinsteiger put his beautiful, strong hands around my heart and refused to let go. Honestly, I'm not complaining! *____*

Yesterday, Bayern München had its first game of the season with anything resembling its A-team! And it was the SUPERCUP! I watched it using a variety of crappy, pixellated feeds with German, Spanish, fuzzy English or no commentaries, AND IT WAS SO FUN! I figured I should document my first experience with a Bayern match, so come on behind the cut if you care at ALL! Bayern lifts its first hardware of the season! )

So in conclusion, YAY BAYERN!!!!!! It was certainly an excellent way to begin my time as a Bayern fan! \o/ I'm already very fond of the entire team, and I can tell this is going to be so much fun. I'm really really excited about the Bayern-Real Madrid (!!!) game next Friday - hoping for my boys to get some revenge against the Spain dudes. (Yes - I'm still bitter. Especially since it was BOTH the Euro and the WC, grr.) It would do my heart so much good to see Bastian triumph over Sergio Ramos and co. (Sorry, Spain girls. We know where my loyalties lie!)

So an awesome side benefit of this whole new footie obsession is that I've reconnected with an old, dear friend of mine, [livejournal.com profile] novafairy! She was one of my FIRST LJ friends, way back in 2005 in the Queer as Folk fandom! It's not that we've ever fully gotten out of touch, but we've both been very busy girls and didn't really have a fandom in common. But she's German and a huge Bayern fan, so this is a really great thing that we now share! I love you Steffi! <333 We're already discussing plans for me to go over and visit, tentatively for September 2011 during which there will be Bundesliga, international, and all other kinds of fun games! She lives near Munich so we could even go watch Bayern train, and I could possibly tell Bastian how much his American fan loves him. *g* Of course it would also just be marvelous to finally meet her, but we could have SO much fun with the football. Whee!

Oh man I can't believe I just wasted an hour making this post. I spent all of today in my lab, doing one experiment but also trying to put together my presentation of my research for tomorrow morning. I was woefully unsuccessful in the latter goal, and still have quite a bit to do, including going back into lab to do the last step of my experiment. Yes, it's 11 PM. *facepalm* Sometimes my procrastination astounds me.

OH ONE MORE THING! Last night, I went out drinking with friends for the first time in a MONTH - much needed, let me tell you. This included a neat whiskey from a local distillery, nnngh it was so good, but also made me very drunk very fast. :P Anyway, while we were out and having a blast, I saw a guy in a - wait for it - BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER NATIONAL TEAM AWAY 2010 JERSEY. Oh my GOD. If you asked me what my favorite jersey in the entire world is, THAT WOULD BE EXACTLY IT. What are the odds?? Especially since they're not selling the away jerseys in America yet! He had to order it from Europe or a replica from Asia (like I did!). Now THAT'S dedication. I totally would have stalked him down and told him how awesome he was, but when I found him he was on a date with a girl and I didn't want to interrupt. It was still super awesome though. As was the rest of the night, including when we went to a German bar and drank a boot and sat at a table decorated with a panel on the wall that said München! Hee!

OKAY I'm going to go be productive now! I am such a failboat. I really did want to document this though. While I love Twitter and the immediacy of it, I hate that it is not recorded in any permanent way, so while I have to force myself to make LJ posts, I really want to do it to have an ongoing record of my life still. I am sorry that I've been so MIA - I'm unbelievably behind on my flist. :( Tell me if something astounding happened in your lives? ♥

This morning, two guys were doing maintenance on our cell culture hood. I squeezed by them to get my dish of cells out of the incubator. One of the guys made some comment about that looking cool or something, and I said "Well, it's breast cancer!" and he was like "Really??" and I laughed and showed him under the microscope. He thought that was so awesome, and that they looked like ceiling tiles or something. He said "I'm gonna go home and tell my wife, 'Guess what I saw today honey? Breast cancer!' And then I'm gonna have to answer some questions." HEEHEE. He was so precious. And it made me feel like a Real Scientist! :D Kind of a necessary boost since last week made me feel like a Shitty Scientist, so ya know.

And that's my fun story for the morning.

Oh, random thing. [livejournal.com profile] brightedelweiss tagged me for the 7 quirks meme, but I don't think I can think of that many. However, there's one that I feel like sharing: I feel so much more uncomfortable as a pedestrian than I ever do as a driver. I have short, stumpy legs and I'm out of shape, so I'm not a very fast walker, and I get VERY PARANOID about holding people up. I also just get super super uncomfortable when someone's walking close enough behind me that I can hear them at all. It's like being tailgated, but even worse. I start to get all nervous and out of sorts and wondering if they're looking at me and hating me for walking slow, and as they near I'm just chanting "pass me pass me pass me" so that I can stop being supremely stressed out by walking in front of someone. I also get stressed out by whether I should walk across the street in front of a stopped car or not, and all kinds of other neurotic things. On the other hand, in a car I'm completely 100% confident and self-assured.

Yeah, I don't even know.

Good morning, lovely flist. How are you? :)

Hmm. Favorite song. I think... I think I'm going to have to go with Extraordinary by Mandy Moore. There's something about the quiet assertion of pride and hope and joy in this song that really speaks to me. The instrumentation is light and spirited and layered and has something new to discover on every listen, while Mandy's voice is slightly throaty and elegant and mature. The lyrics are whimsical yet comprehensible, and I can really relate to the sense of loneliness that one consciously transmutes into confidence. I have the chorus as a ringtone on my phone, and whenever I know I'm going to need a little encouragement to get out of bed, I set it to sing "And now I'm ready to be extraordinary." It works wonders. ♥

That represents one kind of music I like (understated and uplifted by a beautiful vocal performance, usually female, that I can sing to), so to represent my other great love (crunchy thrashy guitar-driven rock'n'roll) my other favorite song is Thank You For the Venom by My Chemical Romance. I'm sure you're all shocked. To be honest, I would really put the entirety of Three Cheers here, but it asked for songs! Venom is just this incredible piece of high-energy shred-your-face-off rock that I could never, ever tire of. (According to Last.FM, I've listened to it 202 times - the only song to break 200 other than MCR's Desolation Row, hee. And 9 of my top 15 tracks EVER are from Three Cheers; 14 are MCR. Obsessed? Me? Nah.) It has this incredible riff and solo (Toro <33333) and from the first measure it picks you up and never puts you down until the last note, at which point you're disheveled and slightly debauched. I also love the message of defiance and the rejection of the culture of "emo" which they find damaging ("give me a better cause to lead"). It's just a dirty, in your face piece of rock and roll, and I love it beyond all reason!

And good night. ♥

Comment here and tell me something you did recently that you're proud of and I comment and tell you that you're awesome and I'm proud of you and shit. And if you see anyone comment and you know them (or understand why they'd be proud of that thing), then you comment to them and tell them why they should be pleased with themselves.

Go go go! I want to know about how wonderful you've all been! START BRAGGING! :D

Just watched last night's Glee. I still don't know how I feel about it! It seems to me like every character is on a yoyo - one week Rachel is hateful and petty, the next she is generous and lovable. Mr. Shue swings between bizarrely selfish/deluded and the most human, likeable character. Finn is likewise very up and down (and am I the only one who doesn't like his voice? It's not... strong. It just is. *shrug*). (Emma's the only truly consistent (good) one, and I do adore her, but she's also very strange, in a rather cartoonish imitation of a very serious condition.) I still feel very much like I'm watching abstract constructions of weird black humor, not people. It's entertaining, sure - I laugh, and I love the music, but I am having such a hard time CARING. Ah well. I'll keep watching, because damn those musical numbers rock, and OH KURT.

Last week's Merlin was EEEEASILY the best of the season so far. See? Just needs moar Morgana! She was all lovely and gaspy and big eyed and porcelain and ugh I have such a massive girlcrush. She's, um, not the best actress in the world, yet she still makes me care for her a lot. Idk! Merlin was rather faily again, but as usual, heart in the right place, yadda yadda. They haven't made Arthur very sympathetic this season though have they? Hrm. I did love the episode though. I like when they go outside Camelot.

Winchesters were tonight! Can't wait to download tomorrow! Right now - Castle! :D

Oh, the reason I was so behind on TV was that I had my first grad school test this morning. I think it went quite well! I don't know how he's going to grade, and there were some things I was a little uncertain on, but overall I'm optimistic. Which is good, because apparently grad school grades severely affect your ability to apply for grants in the next few years. Wut. o.O Well, it's not like grades have ever been my problem (coughtwotimevaledictoriancough) so I'm not particularly worried. :) What I am worried about is this big NSF proposal I have to write in the next month - urgh. Scary!

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] sorchasilver, a TV meme!

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions. Don't cheat!

1. Supernatural
2. Friday Night Lights
3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
4. Bones
5. Firefly

(This is kind of a "now" skewed list - I love far too many TV shows!)

The questions! )

I do so love TV! I'm in the process of deciding what to watch next. I feel SO BEREFT without any more Bones or Big Bang Theory to watch! I finished both in the same night, after months of devouring them together. It's strange - they're completely different shows, but my emotional focal point for both is the same. An oddly matched pair (a geek meets a sexy yet semi-awkward cool person) that is obviously magnetically attracted yet cannot seem to acknowledge it themselves. Both do a sort of yo-yo of requited and not. And it's VERY FRUSTRATING. But I love them both so much. (OMG PENNY GROW A SPINE!!!!!!!!)

I am going to continue with Freaks & Geeks, because it is all kinds of charming, but I need something else as well. Generation Kill? True Blood? Legend of the Seeker? How I Met Your Mother? Help, o wise and all-knowing flist! Tell me about characters I will love (without spoilers!), because that is my key to loving any show.

In other, sad TV news, Stargate: 90210 is made of a million kinds of fail. At this point, I'm wondering how the fuck these people ever gave us Atlantis. SGA was not close to perfect, but it was deeply charming and showed real heart sometimes. I'm wondering if that was truly a result of the cast and its glorious chemistry, because I'm seeing none of that in the SGU bits we've gotten. UGHHHHHH.

In other happier news, I'm LOVING Naomi Novik's His Majesty's Dragon. LOVE!!!!!! Will Laurence, come here and be my empathetic, elegant boyfriend right now!! I fell in love with him within two pages and he has only endeared himself to me further. It's fascinating living inside his head because he is such a product of his time, but lacks any sort of malice in his prejudices. For instance, when he's shocked and appalled by a female dragonrider wearing men's clothing, and muses that riding dragons must be very trying on her slight frame, he's not repugnant, simply a fascinating example of the mindset of that time. He has no hostility towards her, merely surprise and curiosity. I love himmmmmm somuch! And Temeraire, oh Temeraire! *draws a lot of hearts*

Now I'm going to watch last week's Leverage, which I somehow forgot about!

I thought this would be an interesting challenge, and it was! I'm also up way too late again. Dammit.

List 10 platonic relationships on TV/Movies that you enjoy.

Rules:

1. They interact in canon, preferably in a significant (apply your own interpretation of such) way.
2. They are not related. They can, however, view each other as surrogate family.
3. Neither has confessed or implied romantic love for the other in canon.
4. They have not dated, been married, had sex, or made out in canon, on purpose, and of their own free will.
5. A popular fanon ship is ok (though preferably not your ship) but a canon pairing you wish were just friends is out.
6. Try to avoid using the same character or series twice.


1. Buffy, Willow, and Xander. (With bonus Giles). Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Their collective friendship is one of the most beautiful and enduring things in all of television. The original trio of Chosen One, Geek, and Dork! (I'm looking at you, Harry Potter!) Each side of this triangle has its own unique strength, but the three of them together is just unstoppable. With Giles, well, they can even save the world. :)

More! Don't worry, no spoilers for anything. )

I'm totally drawing a blank on a 10th, and it's 4 AM, so screw the rules. :P That was really interesting though, because it's quite unusual to look at fannish material with a purely platonic eye. I realized that, 1) many many of the non-romantic relationships I'm invested in are familial, though I often want them to be romantic, cough cough, and 2) in depth portrayals of female frienships are pretty rare! I was trying to think of more girl-girl friendships but it's really, really hard. Bones and Angela are actually a kind of unique example. And I really love them all the more for it. The other exemplar of that category on this list is Buffy and Willow, of course. If I had to choose a number 10, I'd say Rory and her best friend from Gilmore Girls, but I'm totally blanking on her name. Anyway, that show is thumbs up on the female relationships all around, so kind of an anomaly. It's strange to have very few role models on the screen for a kind of relationship that is incredibly important to me (my life would be empty without my best girls). Welcome to being a girl, I suppose. >.<

Two things I think are AWESOME:
  • Cobra Starship's new video. Hot and funny and sassy, as usual! <33 Leighton Meester is positively gorgeous, and a pretty convincing lure towards Gossip Girl. Hurmmmmm. Anyway, she and Vicky-T as what they are (no spoilers!) is HOT AS HELL om nom nom.
  • NEW THE USED SINGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Download "Blood on my Hands" at the iTunes store! Because it is AWESOME! I already know it pretty well, and I got to hear it LIVE first, but the bits where Bert sings lower sound much better on the studio version, and I always liked the song. NEEEED THIS ALBUM OMG.

I love this lyric from Something Corporate's "Little":
And little holes in parachutes
Won't leave you falling
If they do
It's because you wanna land.

It's just a really neat way to express an interesting idea - if you let little problems get in the way of achieving something, you're probably self-sabotaging in a certain way. I always liked SoCo better than Jack's Mannequin, I must say!

I got home from school around 5, collapsed on the couch to watch an episode of Pushing Daisies with Michelle (Soooooo cute omg. I WANT TO SMISH LEE PACE. I gather this is a common sentiment), then promptly fell asleep for two hours. Wtf wtf. My body is like ????? wtf did you just DO to me and now I'm just kind of zombieing around. I haven't eaten since noon and that was a PB&J sandwich so I hope I start feeling hungry soon. o.O Being sick is weird.

Let's do a fun meme, started by [livejournal.com profile] expastic.

What is your current ringtone for a) calls, b) texts, c) picture messages, and d) alarms? Right now, right this very second. No changing it, no cheating!

Calls: "Extraordinary" by Mandy Moore
Texts: "The Fear" by Lily Allen
Picture Messages: Nothing special, just a boop noise
Alarm: Varies, but often "Headlines Read Out" by We The Kings, "Break the Sky" by The Hush Sound, or "Dark Days" by The Used (or one of the two above)

It's SO FUN to be able to completely customize the sounds my phone makes, right down to exactly what part of the song I want to hear. None of those clips start at the beginning of the song, but instead at the best part (usually the chorus), like "I am not the kind that will lie" for WTK. &myphone; (I use myxer.com to customize my clips, for anyone that's curious!)

Ughhhh zombieing. I'm going to go back to reading A Storm of Swords. Which, to [livejournal.com profile] skyfalling, Spoilers! )

This will never not be completely hilarious:



I think everyone should do the VALENTINES DAY MEME! Basically, you send sweet comments about your friends to [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn, and she compiles them into a big post where you can look and see what people said (anonymously) about you. It makes you feel warm and fuzzy! You make other people feel warm and fuzzy! A win win, if you ask me. Her description:

♥ All you have to do is pick 1-14 people on LJ in some fandom, any any fandom at all, and come up with a word or a phrase or short sentence to describe them (or hey, make icons like one person did one year, do whatever you want, I'll go with it), or just say something about why you like them/enjoy reading them/why you're happy they're around.

♥ Make sure you sign your LJ name, if you have one; it's easier for me to keep track. Then send them off to me at svmadelyn@yahoo.com, and I will compile a great, huge comprehensive list of what everyone's sent to me and post it on Valentine's Day. It's rather like a Secret Admirer/Valentine's Party theme. I will not be posting or telling anyone who sent me what at all. For example, if I were to get four separate e-mails describing Random LJ User, I'd just put all of the words/phrases in a list and post them for each LJ user that someone sent me phrases on.

So go spread some love!

MEME! I assumed I would hate this list, but it appears to have been made by a group of enormous GEEKS. I am very pleased. The only thing that pisses me off is that Friday Night Lights didn't make it - in my humble opinion it deserves top 20 at least. Also, anyone know what happened to number 16, and what it was? Btw, it cracks me up to NO END that Father Ted made it on this list. It's this old Irish comedy about three priests on an island that's so ridiculous and genuinely hilarious.

TV MEME! Empire Magazine's list of the 50 Best TV shows.
1. Bold the shows you watch/used to watch.
2. Italic the shows you've seen at least one episode of.
3. Post your answers.

I had my first lecture with the physics teacher I'm actually going to have (instead of the awful new one), and he is so very amusing and ridiculous. And also very clear. I'm so relieved, I'm actually going to be able to stand this class!

I have reached the age where the cute guy in front of me in physics is cute because he's a BABY, i.e., approximately 18 years old. BABY. He had red hair and his name was Ryan and awww. Precious.

I am so ready to graduate.

Merlin Rec!

Sometimes I Forget I'm Still Awake by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch, Arthur/Gwen, PG, 4000 words, big spoilers for 1x12
An absolutely gorgeous, quiet little story about Gwen and her sadness, her complicated fondness for Arthur, and his complicated fondness in return. I can't say more because of spoilers, but if you've seen 1x12 you know what this is about. And it's beautiful. There are some lovely Merlin and Morgana moments as well. Just a wonderful story, and I hope the show does as much justice by Arthur and Gwen.

And now, The Hot People Meme! Basically an excuse to picspam prettiness. Who am I to say no? Going with the random sixteen number because 10 just isn't enough! :) I imposed a strict 5 pictures per person rule or else this would have taken me HOURS. (ETA: Okay, so it took hours anyway. WHOOPS. Pleeeease take a look? Haha.)

Come see the pretty! Something for everyone, I promise. )

Wow, I... essentially wasted most of the afternoon on that. *FACEPALM* Ummm at least it's very pretty? Sigh.

It's been snowing allll day, it's quite lovely but keeping me from going and doing a couple errands. Classes start tomorrow and it'll be nice to have something to do. So in the meantime I'm basically just being a blob!

Lalala.
