Is there any chance that any of you talented folks would be willing to make me a header of some sort that contains this pic:



With either... )

I generally like my headers to be 760 x 350, but the height can be anything, really, just no bigger than 350. And, you can change the background of the pics in order to make them match each other or whatever you all do when you make fancy graphics. I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER! And I will repay you with anything that I am capable of, be it picspam or fic or embarrassing stories or whatever you can think of. I swear that I spent at least an hour tonight trying to make an aesthetically pleasing header out of these pics and I just couldn't do it. I am way too photoshop illiterate. :(

Anyway, THE ICON MEME! AGAIN! I've posted it enough that you all should know the rules by now. Comment and I'll pick 6 of your icons and yada yada yada. <--Totally went old school there with a Seinfeld reference.

Name your top six TV shows right now, before reading the questions.

1. Merlin
2. The Office
3. Boston Legal
4. 30 Rock
5. Life
6. Ugly Betty

The Questions )

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] themightybee:

List the ten most random favorite things you can think of (in the order they come to mind).

1. Hearing a song I used to love like crazy but haven't listened to in years. Today it was this one. Yes, those are two dudes from Lynard Skynard. I love those dudes. And I love the lyric "It's better to be hated for who you are than be loved for who you're not." I also love the not as sage but still awesome advice, "I never let a cowboy make the coffee." That Granny was a smart woman.
2. Watching Buffy while I eat lunch. I don't know why. It just makes lunch time more fun.
3. Getting things done much earlier than expected and having time to goof off guilt-free. This RARELY happens to me, so when it does, I'm ecstatic.
4. My nephew's laughter. I don't think I will ever tire of hearing that sound.
5. String cheese. I love it. I've professed my love for it on numerous occasions, so you probably already knew this. But I love it. A lot. It's good stuff.
6. Family group hugs. They are ridiculous, but I love them.
7. The smell of the trees at night when the temperature is below 50.
8. Anthony Head giggling uncontrollably. &hearts
9. The Uther/Morgana billowing capes of love scene. YES, I AM STILL NOT OVER IT! I WILL NEVER BE OVER IT! And the more I watch it, the more I've begun to trick myself into thinking that they are kissing in the very end. The way Uther's head is moving in kissing motions, the way her head is hidden by the hood, my stupid brain is making me think that they are actually kissing, which is just craziness because the show would never be able to get away with that. But good lord could they trick me into believing it.
10. Randomly singing. I do it a lot, and it makes me giggle. I've always done this. It's probably why I love Andy Bernard so much.

Stolen from various people. I make no apologies for my thieving ways:

I think it will be awhile before I stop using this icon for every single post. I can't bring myself to un-default the naked-shouldered-Damian icon though. Anyway, me being lazy old me, I NEVER read any of the LJ news. I block it out like I do all the advertisements. So, naturally, I didn't know about LJ shutting down tomorrow for a server move, nor did I know about this "a la carte" icon business. The a la carte icons would make me very, very happy, because then I could just shell out 15 bucks or whatever it will cost for 30 userpics instead of having to buy a full account for more money where I use NONE of the features except the extra userpic space. So, hopefully, that will happen. But, since I will be without LJ for awhile, I decided it was time to do this meme that I've been wanting to do for ages, but real life keeps interrupting me every time I start it (and really, I should be doing my work, but I can do that tomorrow while there is no LJ, right?).

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] fandom_memes

In this meme, you put ten characters in a reality show and see what happens when they battle to win!

First, pick your reality show.
What's the premise? 10 contestants battle it out to become the next world class Donald Trump impersonator.
Who hosts it? Richard Simmons.
Who are the judges? Darrell Hammond, Donald Trump (natch), and Conan O'Brian (who decides to use a British accent, because all reality shows need a sassy British judge)

Now, pick your 10 contestants.
1) Andy Bernard (The Office)
2) Dennis Duffy (30 Rock)
3) Uther Pendragon (Merlin)
4) Liz Lemon (30 Rock)
5) Michael Scott (The Office)
6) Dennis Reynolds (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia)
7) Dee Reynolds (IASIP, because she HAS to prove that she's better than Dennis)
8) Charlie Crews (Life)
9) Denny Crane (Boston Legal)
10) Alan Shore (Boston Legal, because Denny can't go anywhere without Alan)

Now dip behind the cut and see what happens! )

Oh man, I had no idea that character would win. Even though I wrote it. But seriously, I watched it unfold with the rest of you.

LIFE WAS FUCKING AMAZING! OMG OMG OMG!!!! YOU GUYS! THE INTENSITY! THE INTENSITY THAT I LOVE! Was it ridiculous? Yeeeees, but... that makes it all the more charming. LIFE! OMG! MY HEART IS STILL POUNDING LIKE CRAZY! GAAAAAAAH!

Life spoilers )

Also, I just watched the new promo for 30 Rock, and HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP HOLY CRAP! WILL THIS SHOW EVER STOP MAKING ME SO GIDDY? HOLY CRAP! Also, I watched Baby Mama again, this time with my parents, and they enjoyed it. My dad was all against it because he thought it was a chick flick, and then he ended up laughing louder than me and my mom, so... poo on him. His exact words were, "It's two girls and babies, right? Ugh, that's going to be terrible." Afterwards: "Well... that was pretty good. Better than I thought it would be." That man never believes me when I tell him that something is good. NEVER! But anyway, the rewatch of Baby Mama, along with my 15th viewing of the Jack/Liz bits of the 30 Rock premiere made me realize how utterly in love with Tina Fey I am. Like... I was sitting there thinking, "No wonder Alec's always staring at her boobs," and... I... I have no explanation for this. I like man parts, not woman parts, but damn, Tina makes me think some crazy thoughts. Also, I've been reading the 30 Rock spoilers, and I've just got to say this:

Fact: After I get tonight's episode downloaded, I absolutely MUST bring you The Tales of Charlie's Super Expressive Pants, but until then, here are my thoughts on the actual plot and junk. Wait, not the junk. The junk comes later. Wait... the junk comes at the most satisfying time, okay? Anyway...

So, apparently, I "cheated" on the whole 25 first lines meme ([livejournal.com profile] 15lbpurebunny  is such a hardass sometimes.  Psh).  So here's my redo:

25 First Lines, for real this time... )

THERE!  Are you happy now, Bunny?  That was all for you.  And it reads like some whacked out story.  #25 still makes me cringe like crazy.  Oh, 2004, my first year writing fanfiction (or any fiction really, since all through middle school, high school, and college it was all expository writing).  Hopefully I've gotten better since then.

Anyway, now I'm going to do this meme that I saw on fandom_memes ages ago and kept meaning to do but never did:

Pick 10 characters from as many fandoms as you wish.
Answer 16 questions. Drabble responses are very welcome, too.
Bonus: Name the meme pairing you like best and least.
Double bonus: Write a fic about either or both, featuring the situation from the meme.


1. Soames Forsyte (Forsyte Saga)
2. Charlie Crews (Life)
3. Dani Reese (Life)
4. Andy Bernard (The Office)
5. Liz Lemon (30 Rock)
6. Michael Scott (The Office)
7. Carlton Lassiter (Psych)
8. Juliet O'Hara (Psych)
9. Marshall Mann (In Plain Sight)
10. Mary Shannon (In Plain Sight)

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! )

Dude, that was ridiculous fun.  I think my favorite meme ship was Dani Reese/Carlton Lassiter.  Or possibly Charlie Crews/Carlton Lassiter.  I don't think I have a least favorite, because they all rocked.

I will never, ever, ever get over this scene:




NEVER!  I love that Chuck is the one who hesitates. That's just... insanity. And it showed that he actually cared about her. And that was the moment when I fell irrevocably in love with the ship. GAH! And the use of the music is amazing, the way it's sort of soft and tender in the beginning, and then it just blares as their passion takes over. OMG! I love that. LOVE IT!  Do you see why I'm obsessed? This is only going to get worse, folks. Especially since the premiere is on Monday. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!! I've never been this in love with a couple from a teenage drama before. I'm scaring myself. I think I love this show more than I did Veronica Mars. Which is huge.

And since I'm talking about the use of music to emphasize a scene, I can't not talk about Life. It's an impossibility. the music in Life is pretty much its own character. It gives so much to a scene and you can tell that it was meticulously planned. Changing the music can change the entire meaning of the scene (as was proven by the show not being able to afford the music for more than one showing of an episode). So watch my two absolute favorite uses of music on Life (there are a ton, but these are #1 in my book):





The first one is so incredibly symbolic, the words, the way it's soft then gets a little quicker, Roman (who is basically the devil) is shown in his usual attire of all white sipping wine and looking menacing yet thoughtful as the words say "May god's love be with you, always," Oliver sitting alone on the floor and looking at his angel, Reese pulling out her old cross as the words say "Trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in," and it fades into Charlie with the words "believe in." I love that last bit, with the cross and the fade into Charlie. This is basically symbolizing the fact that Reese wants to believe in something again, she wants that connection, and the thing that she can believe in is Charlie. Always. And then with the Charlie bit, god I love it so much it gives me chills, the way the song is saying, "If I find my way, how much will I find you," and he's drawing the line to Bobby, his face hard, afraid of what he'll find, afraid that he'll find Bobby. Gah, I love it! So, so, so very much. And then the second one, well... Damian is just so frickin' hot that I can't resist that scene, but the music is so eerie and it slowly creeps up in volume, until we get that deadly look from Charlie and complete fear in Hollis' eyes as the music says, "Who shall I say is calling," and we're left wondering just who exactly Charlie is in that moment, or really, who is the real Charlie? The zen-spouting, life-loving, fruit-eating, bright-eyed detective, or the rabid dog that was cooped up in a cage and has now been set loose and wants revenge. Oh, god, that scene makes me melt. So damn sexy.

And since I'm waiting for the imeem vid to load, let's take a look at those two scenes with the different music:

Cut for excessive Damian viddage )

Oh, Damian. *dreamy sigh* I really, really hope that my DVDs arrive today. I doubt they will, but a girl can dream.
