So, that Merlin Australian special. It only showed ASH twice, maybe? And, I swooned, both times.
CLEAVAGE, BITCH! HELL YEAH! I love my Uther cleavage. I can't help it. And he's so adorable when he cracks himself up with his nonsensical, rambley responses. I also love him for defending Uther. UTHER IS AWESOMESAUCE! Isn't it sad how everyone else is flailing over Bradley and Colin and Katie (and her ginormous glasses), and I'm just like, "THE OLD DUDE! HE'S HOT
!" *sigh* I bet he'd even look hot in Katie's ginormous glasses.
So, big time LJ voting stuff. It's annoying. I swear that 93.5% of my f-list is just people posting something like, "VOTE FOR MY SHIP, BITCHES! DO IT! NOW!" and, I'm all for enthusiasm and most certainly am not dissing any of you lovely people that I adore, but... ARGH. It's like the HBIC contest all over again. And you know who won the HBIC contest? A FUCKING MAN
. Psh, even in an all female contest a stupid man wins. SUCH IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN. And he won by a freaking landslide. A man who completely BUTCHERED Ring of Fire. I'M SORRY. I CANNOT SHARE FANDOM'S LOVE OF THIS NOT-SO-TALENTED DUDE WHO IS SO NOT
AN HBIC. Anyway, I have already come to terms with the fact that NONE of my ships will win. They just won't. The one that has the most chance is Merlin/Arthur. Otherwise, I ship the obscure and/or hated ships, so... yeah, not gonna win. And I am being vicious and voting against the ships that bother me, and 9 times out of 10 I have never even heard of the opposing ship. WHY? WHY DO RIDICULOUS INTERNET CONTESTS MAKE US ALL LUNATICS? I don't know. But there you go. Also, I am saddened that Buffy/Giles isn't even an option. Nor is Uther/Morgana. *hmph* They so should have pitted Buffy/Angel against Buffy/Spike, just to see what kind of shit storm would happen from that. But... anyway. Yeah. I'm crazy. But so are you lot, so it's all good.
Speaking of ships this non-secret
amused me. Firstly, because it said "Moses" instead of "Noah", and secondly, because the second I saw it, I was like, "OMG, ARE THEY TALKING TO ME
?" As it has been lovingly pointed out by many, I don't have ships, I have a freaking fleet.
Did I ever mention that the last new True Blood episode made me finally see why so many people ship Sookie/Eric? Because holy hell, they've got this freakishly hot thing going on between them, and I fear falling in love with that ship, because then it'll make me resent Bill, and I so don't want to resent that lovely vampire, so... yeah, I'm digging just going with the flow ship-wise on this show, so I really
don't want to turn passionate about any of the ships, especially since the only one that I did really dig ended up going kablooey and I can't even remember why I had originally loved it so much. But Eric is so making Sookie more interesting, and Bill has a certain admiration for Eric and Sookie keeps getting in between them, and Sookie makes Bill a little unstable, and Eric just seems to get Sookie like no one else does, and GOOD LORD, I AM SO FALLING FOR THEM. AUGH, DON'T DO THIS TO ME, SHOW! I don't want to ship on this show! I just want to ogle the pretty men and laugh at the ridiculous plot. *sigh* I actually think the show is better this season writing-wise, but I think the ongoing mystery (Marianne) is sucksville. I so miss the ongoing mystery from season 1. But anyway, Sookie and Bill have gotten a lot more interesting this year, purely because of Jessica and Eric.
So, on the 4th of July, we watched the new movie on HBO, which was Burn After Reading. This got good reviews, people on my f-list generally enjoyed it. WHAT THE FREAKING HELL? IT WAS RIDICULOUS. So, so awful. I'm sorry dudes, but I just did not like it. At all. I don't really care for any of the actors in the film, so that might explain some of it, but... blech. I don't know. It wasn't the worst movie ever (I loved the government dude that was just plain confused and was happy to get rid of everybody), but it certainly wasn't worth all the praise. I guess I'm just not much of a dark comedy fan. I like goofy/awkward/touching comedy, not... pointless, the-only-endearing-characters-get-killed comedy. It was just stupid, and not the good kind of stupid. But again, not the worst, because it did keep me interested in its ridiculous plot (if it even had one), but... ugh. I could have skipped that one entirely.
Speaking of the 4th of July, since we (finally) closed down the candy store, my oldest brother brought along all the leftover candy and dried fruit and nuts with him, and GOOD GOD I am going to gain 50 million pounds by the end of the month. Seriously. There's got to be at least
30 pounds worth of candy there. Probably more. Mind you, I am picky about my candy that isn't chocolate, but still, I've been eating mini fruit slices like my life depends on them. And I've been devouring the few chocolate stuff that was left.
MEME!!!Choose 10 characters (
preferably from the same fandom) and answer the questions that follow. No peeking until your list is done!
1. Rupert Giles (Buffy)
2. Buffy Summers (Buffy)
3. Uther Pendragon (Merlin)
4. Morgana (Merlin)
5. Andy Bernard (The Office)
6. Denny Crane (Boston Legal)
7. Bill Compton (True Blood)
8. Burton "Gus" Guster (Psych)
9. Liz Lemon (30 Rock)
10. Marshall Mann (In Plain Sight)( The questions )
So, what did we learn from this meme? That Marshall/Liz would be one epic crossover OTP, Marshall/Andy would end in heartbreak, and Denny/Gus is meant to be.
