Witness the Silent Rave!
I was dangerously close to doing the same thing at work today and calling it my Friday Dance. It doesn't have the same effect when you do it solo.
It feels like it's been a while between updates, so I thought I'd broadcast an update as to what I've been doing and plan to do with this journal in future.
Then I decided to watch the series returns of Heroes
instead. ( Wherein I burble. Hear me burble. This may contain traces of tv show spoilers. )
I had a rant in here of how siestas should become legislated government policy pertaining especially to state and commonwealth departments, but it distracted from the fandom. As I whiled away many an hour at work daydreaming of sleep, I somewhere decided to migrate over those writings from an older, disused journal for a general point of easy reference. So, all my old and other work will be appearing here in the coming future -- the good, the bad, and the embarassing.
I have 'Five (5) Things' lists waiting in a book that travels with me everywhere. I need to type them up sometime this century, it's been pending for months.
I have a real urge to get back icon-making in Photoshop, I never got around to making those Brimstone
icons I started capping before my previous laptop died in its sleep. I also have a sneaking urge to abuse Heroes
with new icons since it slapped me in the face with its pretty.
I've also discovered the engrossing spectacle that is Luke and Noah's story
on As the World Turns
(ATWT) -- it's like Bold and the Beautiful, but with (some) common sense. A new breed of soap opera spawned from an old mother. ( Saw 'Hairspray' )
. Loved it much more than Hairspray
(before you hiss, to each their own!). Loved it so I have nothing to say, except that if you like romance, adventure well-blended with contemporary humour, you should enjoy this movie. I intend to see it again.
While I'm listing, I read Eragon
fanfic in my sleep. It's a fandom of chronic update lags. I get really frustrated, then really, really happy when people update. Afterwards, I perform a cleansing ritual. It gets very cumbersome.
I can give no ETA on this migration initiative, but in the meanwhile, I'll visit with the occasional rec. Today is a fantastic Torchwood
piece I crossed and meant to post some time ago. I know there's another rec I was supposed to share for someone, if it's you, please remind me.C12H22O11
Summary: "Ianto's filing boxes when he finds it.... Luminous in the corridor lights. Faintly blue-orange-silver. Almost remarkable inhuman, except for the fetal curl of the body and the crackle along Ianto's nerves that might be crying."
WHY: THIS MUST BE READ. If this had been an episode of Torchwood, I would have fallen for this team. This is a gorgeous, redeeming story set post-Season 1 finale, bringing out the sensitivities and better side of everyone I'd almost come to detest by the season's end. The best read I could have had at bedtime.
