Stealing from [livejournal.com profile] ever_neutral-- Name a couple (or two, or whatever, there ain't no meme police) and I will tell you the exact moment I started shipping them. Or stopped.

Okay! Hit me!  I'm stuck at work with only sporadic work to do.  And I've already got a couple of answers in the barrel.

I got this meme from [livejournal.com profile] nvrbnkisst . She assigned me the letter L, so I have to come up with 5 songs I love that start with an L!  

Music is my boyfriend. )

 So, I realize I'm way behind on my 30 days of Buffy meme.  There's a good reason, really there is.  I switched computers, and well... I have a bootleg version of Photoshop--so I have to get my software that keeps Adobe from being able to see that I have a bootleg all set up (because otherwise, the Adobe enforcement team comes and kicks in your door, from what I understand).  For some reason it didn't transfer correctly.  But, soon.  And then there will me more Buffy for everyone!

In the meantime--or memetime (haha--see what I did there?)--I want to do this smut meme from [livejournal.com profile] ceciliaj .  Cecilia does the best memes.  True facts.  Another true fact? Talking about smut is fun.  

Let's talk about sex, Baby )

I don't know if I've mentioned this about myself, but I'm impetuous.  To a fault.  Maybe impetuousness is always considered a fault? Well, mine is like a super fault, then.  The San Andreas fault. 

I think I must've fallen and hit my head or something (but I don't remember it). Because I bought a new laptop. It's shiny and new.  

Another sign that I've lost my mind or suffered some sort of head trauma: I bought a paid LJ membership.  And an icon package.  Now, typically, I wouldn't say that's an indication of my oncoming dementia, but if you consider that I have icons that I never use even out of my "free package" selection of 15, it seems a little irrational to buy more, doesn't it?  Somehow, I managed to convince myself that it was the limited scope of the 15 icons that was preventing me from using them to their best effect.  

And last.  I bought ALL of the Buffy Season 8 comics on amazon yesterday.  So, they'll be here soon.  I'm excited. But, the problem is that I haven't yet returned the wrong comics that I bought (I mistakenly bought the Omnibus).  I was supposed to return those first.  But I didn't. Because I'm the least responsible person in the world.  

And frankly, I'm seriously considering buying some clothes from ModCloth.  So.  I think I'm on a shopping jag.  

Anyway! Enough about my foolhardy spending habits. Let's humor my desire to stick to this imaginary schedule, and talk about memes and stuff. 
Day 10: Something I liked that fandom didn't )

Day 11: Somthing I hate that fandom loves )
Day 12: Least favorite season )
blackfrancine: (Andrew Funnel Cake)
So, after having been shockingly on schedule with this meme for 8 days, I missed yesterday.  But I have a good excuse!  I. Signed up. For Seasonal Spuffy.  That's right.  And I spent the better part of last night attempting to write something!  I think it probably sucks!  But still.  I have plenty of time to try and make it not suck. 

Anyhoo! Have a surprisingly long stream-of-consciousness essay on my favorite villain(s)!

They wrapped evil around them like a large, evil Mexican serape )
blackfrancine: (Andrew Funnel Cake)
So, in a very unfortunate turn of events, this morning, I spilled a soda on my laptop.  Expanded tale of woe )

It was actually kind of hard to decide on a least favorite couple.  It turns out I don't exactly hate any couples.  But I settled on this one...
I don't like any of that stuff. Except theā€”the fighting evil part. Even then, I prefer a nice foot massage )

There's not a lot to say about this episode because... well, because I don't like it.

Pull them little strings and I'll sing you a song, I'm your puppet  )
blackfrancine: (Default)
No! I'm kidding; there'll be no singing.  I kept trying to work the lyrics for "Kiss Off" into here somewhere because it's been in my head all day. But I failed.  OR DID I?

They'll hurt me bad, they do it all the time )
blackfrancine: (Joan is a superhero)
Actually, no.  This isn't important.  But I'm jittery and bored and sleepless.  So, I'm posting this.  

Woo hoo! I just started watching the Vampire Diaries last week, and I'm almost caught up. My feelings about it can be summed up thusly: I ♥ Damon. And Jenna. And Caroline. And Alaric and Jeremy are A-OK too. Elena isn't too bad either. The end.

Well, psych. That's not really the end. I have one more thought--I love the Salvatore brothers' relationship. That's some compelling human drama. I mean, man am I predictable. Nothing reels me in like a good sibling story, I tell ya. 

In other news, I've been thinking about doing the 30 Days of Buffy meme for a little while now.  Hopefully, it'll be a way of getting myself to post more often. And also I get to talk about my ~feelings~, which is pretty much my favorite pastime.  

Heh. Not really. That was a joke. I don't like to talk about my real feelings (though it seems like I do it an awful lot lately)--but I do like to talk about my Buffy-related feelings.  So, I figured I'd go ahead and kick it off right now with day one, my favorite female character...

All the ladies in the house, I'm callin' out to ya )

Also-- I hate the world right now.  I just figured out that after hemming and hawing over Season 8, that I bought the wrong damn thing.  And I'm gonna have to take it back to the bookstore (and I only bought it from the bookstore because I had a gift card)--and they always give you the side-eye when you return books.  Which, I get. I'd be giving side-eye if I were them.  But this is totally legit! I haven't read them.  And they were expensive.  So, that's not gonna be fun.  Boo-urns.

I'm stealing [livejournal.com profile] ceciliaj 's movie meme because it looked fun and time consuming. And I had some time that needed to be consumed. So here goes: my favorite movies released each year of my life, then narrowed down to one movie per decade--with an explanation of why I have the greatest taste in movies ever.

I think what this meme will accomplish will be to out me as a lover of incredibly silly movies. Also, I'm going to cheat. There are just some years for which I can't possibly narrow it down to just one movie. So, I'm a dirty cheating cheater. Let's get started, shall we?


MOVIES! )
blackfrancine: (Default)
Okay. So, there must be something wrong with my computer's microphone, because after trying to record a thousand times, I finally switched to my boyfriend's computer, and it worked the very first time.



I just listened to it, and I have, like, a Shatner-esque pausing situation happening. I WAS NERVOUS OKAY? I promise I don't pause like that all the time. Also I kind of cough a few times, so, sorry about that. Allergies.

 How exciting! My first ever meme. (I'm easily amused.)  Tagged by <lj user="ohwaluvusbab">
If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own lj and replace any question that you dislike with a new question.

Tag eleven people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

What song are you currently addicted to?

"Deceptacon" by Le Tigre

What's your favorite season?

Fall, I guess. But late fall. Or winter. I'm in central Texas, so there's not really a fall fall--only summer and a brief period of not summer. I prefer not summer.

What's the latest movie you watched?

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Meh. It was okay.

What is the one skill you wish you had?
Sewing. Or will power. Is will power a skill? I give in to my every whim, so I need to develop some sort of skill set to deal with that.

What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Buffy, though I'm starting back up on Dr. Who. I'm a billion years behind the rest of the world, though.

What's your favorite musical instrument?

Guitar, I guess.

What web sites do you always visit when you g
o online?
Livejournal, Jezebel, my e-mail, and the blogs of a couple of friends

What was the last thing you bought?

Shitty Chinese food

If you won 10,000 bucks today, what would you do with it?

Pay off debt (because my life is a thrill a minute), and maybe fix something in my hell-hole of a house.

Favorite time of day?
Night. Like between 11 PM and 2 AM.

What's the last thing that made you happy?
*shrug* I don't know. I read <a href="http://hecatehatesthat.livejournal.com/105664.html/">this</a> today, and it didn't make me unhappy. There may have even been giggling and audible squeeing at my desk at work. True story.

Do you want to learn another language?

I want to know another language. But I don't really want to put in the effort to learn it. I have a really bad grasp of French--so I if I had to choose, I'd probably try to fix that situation first. And then maybe learn Norwegian, because there's an author I love and only one or two of his books is translated into English.

Five things you can't live without.

Internet; air conditioning (see above about the summer/not summer seasons where I live); Curel hand lotion, Chapstick, and sleeping pills (which sounds bad--but I have ridiculous insomnia, and those pills have been a lifesaver)
